Track Name: Intro
It's in your hands!
Track Name: Ruin
Don't let this world
Fade away
We hold in our hands, the choice
To make our mark.
Or simply decay

All thoughts of fondness will flee the minute we lay down and recede
Future generations will only look back on us with disgust

For it will be their world then
(But it is our world now)
Don't fall into the shadows of the crowd
(Open your eyes, they're scared)
That we might figure it out

We are the heart and the soul
It's time to take back control.

I for one will not bow down to the tyrants sitting atop their thrones
Safe and sound
In their cities of gold

We are heading for ruin
But we could be more
(We can be more)
We are heading for ruin
Dare to dream
Open your hearts to sing

We create our own destiny
Who will we be?
Who will you be?
Track Name: Auroras
Above auroras
Fill my eyes
Dancing across the skies

Blindingly beautiful
They caress my mind
Colours intertwine forever never ceasing to shine

Every new day brings with it the choice to love free from the negativity we breed
When did our strive to live die?

We are alive!

How did that slip our minds?
We have all forgotten how to love without the hate.

We have allowed triviality
To reign
In this world where we have all forgotten what it means to truly
Live life blissfully

Every new day brings with it the choice to love free from the negativity we breed
Step back and watch them shine
Auroras fill the skies

Step back and watch them shine

Colours intertwine forever

Colours intertwine forever never ceasing to shine

Auroras
Fill my eyes
Track Name: Hunter
Pushed aside and suppressed
Slipping through the cracks
(Of your own consciousness)
Surrounded by ghosts of what has come to pass
Your mind twists and bends wishing each breath to be your last
You're living as prey

Let every moment shine
For fleeting are the hands upon the cracked face of time.

Bleh

Fleeting are the hands of time
Oh

Love your life upon this earth
Your past does not equal your worth
The future is yours to shape.
Your will, never let it break

If you're tired of being pushed to the last of the pack
Bare your teeth and run with the wolves

Never Looking Back!

Become the hunter

Life is not infinite
Make the fucking most of it.

Become the hunter
Track Name: Fearless
It must be hard
Waking in fear of becoming everything you have ever dreamed
Never reaching for the heights you've only soared in your sleep
Continuously told
Time and time again
That you'll only fall
That mediocrity is what your future holds.

Don't let it slip through
Don't let that feeling die
It's burning in your heart
Its high time you spread those wings and reached for the heights you've only soared in your sleep
The stars, they are yours to claim

Realise your dreams

Just because you're breathing,
Does not mean you're living life
Don't fear becoming
Everything you are inside
Despite what people may say
This is your life
Be you and only you in every way

Don't let it slip Through
Don't let that feeling die
It's burning in your heart
Its high time you spread those wings and reached for the heights
You've only soared in your dreams
The stars
They are yours to claim

Realise your dreams

Don't let it slip through
Don't let that feeling die
It's burning in your heart
This is your life
Despite what people may say
Be you and only you

Don't let it slip through
Don't let that feeling die
it's burning in your heart
It's high time you spread those wings and reached for the heights
You've only soared in your dreams
The stars
They are yours to claim

Realise your dreams.
Track Name: Hands Bound
Whoever said this was set in stone?
A life controlled you can never call your own
I'd rather live my life with a mind sound
Than to dream in the clouds with my hands bound

Their tongues spill dishonesty
But their eyes tell no lies

With words they speak so heavenly
Yeah!
Their voices echo the void in sleepwalking minds
Becoming nothing more

Than another pawn upon their board.
Becoming nothing more than another pawn upon their board

I forever swore
My heart would never be burdened
By their wars

For this my heart beats ever harder
I will never be their martyr
For this my heart beats ever harder
I will never be their fucking martyr oh

Whoever said that this was set in stone
Set in stone
A life controlled you can never call your own

Superiority is what they claim

The truth is every heart beats the same

Our peace our freedom lay in equality
A rose by any other name
Our hearts beat the same
Our peace our freedom lay in equality
A rose by any other name
Our hearts beat the same

A rose by any other name
Our hearts beat the same.
Track Name: Like Kings
Beauty lay in this world we perceive
It is wasted on their eyes for all they see is opportunity
To further their destructive ways
To feed the greed

A monolithic era is what we've dreamed
Man made structures
Redefine our skyline
Blocking sun from soil
Where life now fails

Why can't they see

Why can't they see

Why can't they see
That this hell they speak of
So fearfully, Is exactly what this world will be

Why can't they see
That this hell they speak of
Is exactly what this world will be if we keep killing to feed our greed

Stop dying to consume everything
Killing to feed your greed

A monolithic era is what we've dreamed
The greed of humanity
Has redefined
Our existence

Peace died the day we decided to live like kings

Tear down their walls
Let the light shine in
Life will prevail again
When we behead the kings.

Behead the kings
Track Name: Flourish
We are the architects of our own demise
Breeding hatred like a spreading disease
Afflicting those of a closed mind

Time wasted searching for the cures of the ailments of this world
When all we have to do is look in the fucking mirror

Closed minded people live out their lives In darkness
Never seeing the light
Where did we go wrong

We have blacked out the sun for too long
It's time to start acting like we fucking belong

Further bettering the quality of our own lives
By destroying life
I see no sense
I see no reason
Killing Season After season

Will you break free, fight for change
or sit back and just play your part
in the clot, that's choking the life from our worlds once thriving once flourishing heart.

Will you be the beginning
Or the end.

It's your hands
