Track Name: I Dreamt I Destroyed the World
Have I always been what I am today?
When I fly above your heads, and let the dark slip from my mouth
Cause it's never enough, to say that I've changed
If I were a human, I am a monster, the action the slaughter

Everyone, everything, I've loved is dead and gone
I'm so scared
What have I done?
I'm losing everything

But there's nothing to fear
I'll take you inside, and we'll grab the end by the throat and make it ours
I've been dreaming about this
Have I told you?
I am the storm, that carried the sea, the reason you lost, everything

Everyone, everything, I've loved is dead and gone
I'm so scared
What have I done?
I'm losing everything
Everyone, Everything I've loved has left and gone
So keep your hands tied
What have I done?
This is as bad as it gets

I'm lying to lose the noise in my head
Saying words I've tried so hard to hold
I've lost control
To hold you down
It's obvious what I am

They tore my limbs off one by one
I was too ashamed to speak your name
This weight I bare, is too much to take
Will I ever be the same?
Track Name: Occurrence In the Wildwood
I came from the coast
Holding in the fire
Bestowed in constant hollow bones
My brother sleep
I know every move you make
I’ve come to take you home

I'm barefoot running through the trees
Not letting you beside me
I'm bleeding through these walls you built for me
I found out where I'm suppose to be

Settle the current
It’s not any truth to claim the name you bare
Somewhere below the roots
I will not rest where the dead men go
I won’t claim defeat
Not to the hangman nor the beast
(We were made for this; our blood blended, to craft the mountain, To give back what God had paid.)

I'm barefoot running through the trees
Not letting you beside me
I'm bleeding through these walls you built for me
I found out where I'm suppose to be

I watch as you cave in, as you cave in
(I could never stunt that path, crafting out a single plan
Scraping through the dirt, giving all I had in worth
Plains were changed in endless youth
But not a brother, not to you
Far from blood, I ever proved
Far from blood, I ever proved)
Track Name: Susannah and the Elders
You said it's fine to leave
You said it's the way it's supposed to be
But why am I still sinking?
How you felt back there, I'll never see the picture you kept of me
A steady hand drawn perfectly align
But let this soak in
Let the words haunt all your living steps
You empty vessel

We start it off
In separate marks
You swore to me that we would spark the end of times the end of days

Hey let's go
Susannah they're coming for you
You know
Just what you have done and you've done it now

Could it be you?
That you're the one to blame for everything
Creasing the faith I had cemented in my faulty life
Our delicate crux
How much more time?
Can you keep this act up?
Is being human ever enough?
Am I enough?
I'm not enough
Are we competent?

Hey let's go
Susannah they're coming for you
You know
Just what you have done and you've done it now

Lost in time and all alone
Desolate, your art has grown
Armed and ready to explode
Oh no
Everything you said
All those words you held
Never kept me warm
Never made this easy

Hey let's go
Susannah they're coming for you
You know
Just what you have done and you've done it now
Track Name: Carroll A. Deering
I watched the shore wash you away
Can you believe in this tide?
Did you see this coming?
Such a violent blue
Your father spoke many words
Tore me open inside
Scream to the skies
It won't change a thing

I fear the coming coast
With lonesome heads, alone
I can't come back
I can't come back

I used to hold such gold
I used to hold such pride
Gave it to the gods
In hopes they would save me
A shipless sailor is silent
In hopes of finding home
Cause nothing's worse than leaving
Then never leaving at all

I fear the coming coast
With lonesome heads, alone
I can't come back
I can't come back

I stay close,
This ghost, my haunting
It's so hard to keep you
My heart, how it's fading

The sea calls me home

Oh what a leader to take my life from me
Everything you love will someday fade
I will curse this ocean on your family name
I won't forget you, I won't forget a thing
Track Name: When the Sky Opened
Keep closed that mouth of yours ghost still spill from your teeth
Wait out the morning and see what you mean to me
It's just so hard to hold a simple truth when your heart is young
So keep me under wraps, and save your talk for them to see
Let them see

I'm sick and tired of
So sick and tired of the wrong side
The wrong side of this mess we're in
Don't let them tear your skin

I'll cave just give me time to expand my arms it's a reach
But what will become of us if we lay and wait for too long
My god what happened to me? Give me back who I use to be
Punch drunk and scared to death
How did I get here?
I can't see

I'm sick and tired of
So sick and tired of the wrong side
The wrong side of this mess we're in

So let go
Let go
So just let go
Of all the weight

Don't let it get in your head
Don't let take the world you made to trick yourself that this would ever be okay
Don't let it get inside
Don't let cut the strings that hold the truth and love you could never seem to find
It's so hard to find

On the bright side
The heavens shed the light that you need
Never letting you stray away
Every word is soaked on the inside
Track Name: Return of the Hunters
I pull and peel the skin
I let you right in
I've been talking to myself and
Resolving the problems I found
Buried in myself
Buried in my bones

I had to stay in line
When I saw the water trail lead me to
The lake where your body was drowned
Your face full of beauty
And loss of life
Was a first sight for me
It Was a first

Don't give me death give me life
I saw the sky collapse and crawl through your eyes
It never held together in such demise
It's a sad fleet empty handed in need

The blood kept circulating
But you kept on fading
All through the night
And your hands were cold and your eyes were as warm as the sun
As the sun

You let it go
The world we knew and loved

Don't give me death give me life
I saw the sky collapse and crawl through your eyes
It never held together in such demise
It's a sad fleet empty handed in need

You let it go
The world we knew and loved now
You let it go
The hands that crafted you now
Track Name: After the Quake
Mind Gone
Seven states is just enough to kill
All our plans and the things we held
Detach ourselves and make this hell
But I keep taking and taking and taking and take

Oh god
I've held on for far too long
Unintentional breaks that make
Things so rough
But I keep taking and taking and take

And It's hard not to change
It’s my home, not this place
I chose you, not this pain
It's not me
But I still love you

All the weight in the world
Can't keep me still
I'll dismantle everything
I'll make the cites touch the ocean, if I have too

And it's hard not to change
It’s my home, not this place
I chose you, not this pain
It's not me
But I still love you

Cause I can't see to your leave
It was never okay
I won't let this change
Just wait

It's hard not to change
I chose you not this pain
My home is not this place

Home
Track Name: We Were Brothers
My brothers I’ve failed you
I’ve strayed from the path
Gave up my heart for another’s skin
My dear wolves take my flesh for warmth, it has no use for me now
Take in this air, the mountainside has spoken
Leaving the earth and river to die
Under this lifelessness there’s something more
Something I swear raging deep inside

I can see that everything has changed

Betrayal and lustful eyes
Cave in the core tear me open from the inside
All that I’ve lost in false hopes for gain
The man I was once and the man I became
Letting this out
Hold me from the inside
Wish I could change and I wish it was me

I'm scared for my heart cause it's scared for me
When I crawled up your stairs I remember it vividly
A conscious thief of what I use to be and a world of words I never wanted to leave
And if I took it back I would never know the cost
We were brothers before my hands
And I'm sorry that I took my share
And I'm sorry that I never cared enough
But maybe this was meant to be
Track Name: Moskstraumen
Another path marked off
Another step to take to make it out of this mess
I find it hard to be
The man that I was set out to be
Hidden south of the mountain

I see that it's all wrong
I see that it's all wrong

I can hear the trumpets sound
As I replace the words I once sang out of my mouth
But the trees have fled and died
Leaving for the white to guide me home

I see that's it's all wrong
I see that it's all wrong

I refuse to stay in between
I am not a current disrupting the sea
I am not the separation of you and me
Just lift your head
Just stay alive
I am not a current disrupting the sea
I am not the separation of you and me

What a better to hate
To hate a man for all he has, for all he has to give to you
But I don't care if I, if I see the light, if I see the light I'll just close my eyes


I am a spitting image of what I’ve always feared
A tattered tone marked a milestone this year
And If I were to become a foreign room
I'd only wish to have something real to hold onto
I'd hope you know, I’d hope you know
This change is permanent, a new form to remain unmoved
