Track Name: Poseidon's Kiss
These broken conversations lead you far away from truth.
As you stare into the darkness never finding clues or proof.
Why is it you’re blinded from the guidance that you seek?
Place your faith within me; place your hands upon me.
I’ll take you back to innocence through the depths of these high seas.
You’re drowning in an ocean of despair and disbelief.
Take my hand for control and I will anchor you safely.

We will stand strong against the tides, never falling from grace and we strive for new beginnings.
We’re blind to our own strengths and faults in the absence of light.

These actions lead you forward into the light of the day
As the waves all crash around you, you can see your own escape.
Why is it you’re blinded from the guidance that you seek?
Place your faith within me; place your hands upon me.
I’ll take you back to innocence.

You see this world through your bloodshot eyes
Translucent and lost in blackened skies.
Poseidon’s kiss holds you safe and tight.
Gasp for air and break out from the tides.

We will stand strong against the tides, never falling from grace and we strive for new beginnings.
And in the absence of light we strive forward. In the absence of light.
Track Name: Winter
So cry your heart out just to watch her walk away.
Through the snow I struggle to find my faith.
Hold me closer to you and i will guide you through.

I never wanted to hurt you, i never wanted this to change me.
But now i’m trapped beneath you. I’m trapped beneath the ice around your heart.
I never thought that this would be the end of me.
I never thought that this would be the end of me.

Kill the lights, choose your side.
Look inside and face yourself.

You take another piece and destroy the love we had.
Thank you for ruining everything.
Take a look in the mirror at what you have become.
You’ll see the devil staring right back at your eyes.

I never wanted to hurt you, i never wanted this to change me.
But now i’m trapped beneath you. I’m trapped beneath the ice around your heart.
I never thought that this would be the end of me.
I never thought that this would be the end of me.

So cry your heart out just to watch me walk away.
Through the snow I struggle to find my faith.
And she screams “Hold me closer to you and i’ll lead you through the darkness into the light”.
When your eyes, your eyes betray your lies.

Walk with me until the darkness becomes the light.

And it becomes the light you seek.
Track Name: The Sleeper
When these horrors come we find comfort in our dreams.
As the day draws to a close this sleep will be our release.
These nightmares will keep me from sleep until the morning, until the morning comes

So take everything that you expect to know, smash it apart right before your eyes
We won’t sleep until the morning.
When our cries will not save us from the coming the fall to sleep.

Just close your fucking eyes to what’s inside.
When will we sleep?

How can we kill our demons from the inside when our only release is sleep?

Now I can’t get through these nights alone, these nightmares steal my sleep.
In this coma state we start to drown and we can’t come, we can’t come up for air.

Just close your fucking eyes to what’s inside.
When will we sleep?

When these horrors come we find comfort in our dreams
As the day draws to a close this sleep will be our release.
When these horrors come we find comfort in our dreams
As the day draws to a close this sleep will be our release.
