Track Name: The Colosseum
Let the games begin

I stand here right at the face of death;
Scared for my life
The crowd is waiting for my blood
And all I hear is

Let the games begin
Track Name: Coercion
Menace to the world, we bind their lives
To the crosswalk of their broken dreams

We are plagues

Worldly inept, we seek compassion like water;
Crucial to survive
But when we drink it, we spit it out
And we ignore our thirst to thrive

We’re all damned and blind to the oblivious reality
In front of us
Becoming the oppression
Acting like the oppressed

Our way of life is a coercion
For those who live for restoration
And to the poison for which it will feed

Feel the force, in the
Way you live, and see the
Eye is blind, until there's
bodies in the street

How can you rebuild the world
When you can’t rebuild yourself

(I tried so hard)
We’re all scared to break the path
We were born to leave
Were scared to break the path
(I tried so hard)

The problems around you
Not seeing the truth

The problem is you
Not seeing the truth

The pressure in my lungs
(My distorted being)
The gritting of my teeth
Makes me hate to go on


We have the chance to rebuild
But we have to start with ourselves
Track Name: Lost & Bound
I can’t breathe
Sorrow fills my lungs
The ice in my heart
Turns it to stone

I am lost
I can’t find my way
Without you here to guide me

I still hear you in my dreams
Calling my name so incessantly
Shrouded in darkness so I can’t see
A silhouette of a memory

Now that you’re gone
I struggle to bear the weight
Of this guilt with heavy steps I carry on
I resist the urge to look back and regret

Blaming myself for the
Things I can’t control
Blaming myself and I
Can’t take this much more

I feel my world
Crashing down around me

I still don’t understand why
But I know everyone has their time
It was just so hard for me to see
Cause I never thought that you'd
Leave

But you left me here
A prisoner
Inside my mind

Even though you’re gone
Your presence lingers
Inside my mind

Let, Let me out
Let, Let me out

I can’t breathe
Sorrow fills my lungs
The ice in my heart
Turns it to stone
I am lost and bound

I still hear you in my dreams
Calling my name so incessantly
Shrouded in darkness so I can’t see
A silhouette of a memory
Track Name: In Light
Feel the light

In a world filled with darkness
We find hate, distrust and greed
That covers the land
But in the black of night,
Some shine the light
And face the world with courage

Feel the light
Inside of you
Let it fill you with ambition
And make your greatest dreams reality

We shroud ourselves in a shadow of submission
We’re so compliant with suppressing our potential
Shatter the walls of the darkness
Shatter the walls

And break free
Break

Deep down we yearn to mend the void
But we’re scared to face the unknown
Deep down we yearn to mend the void
But we’re scared to face failure

I see the darkness in people everyday
Being put forth as if it were a shield

Why do people hide the light in themselves
When that is what makes them whole?

Break free

I will find my light and illuminate the world
So those surrounded in darkness can see
And spread their flame
Track Name: Deception (ft. Cade Armstrong)
All we want is to live forever
But what don't realize
That one day it all comes to an end
One day the cycle starts again

All we want is to live forever
But we don't realize
That one day we have to die
One day we end our insignificant lives

You're insignificant

Obsessed with creating a better vision
We forgot that when we die we can't see a thing

We think we own the world
So we lie, cheat, and steal
Our vision is so corrupt
We don't even know what is real

We think we cannot die
So we waste our whole lives
Trying to be what we're not
Even though we're living a lie

Our vision is so corrupt
We don't even know what is real

All we want is to live forever
But what don't realize
That one day it all comes to an end
One day the cycle starts again

All we want is to live forever
But we don't realize
That one day we have to die
One day we end our insignificant lives

The only truth in this world that remains un-shattered
The biggest lie we tell ourselves is that we fucking matter

(Cade Armstrong)
You can't hide from your own demise
In the end we can't escape our fate
We are destined to become one with the earth
Six feet under
You can run but you will only die tired

All we want is to live forever
But what don't realize
That one day it all comes to an end
One day the cycle starts again

All we want is to live forever
But we don't realize
That one day we have to die
One day we end our insignificant lives

Deception: man's greatest invention
Our lives revolve around
Deception: man's greatest weapon
Our lives revolve around
Deception
