Track Name: Ophidian
I tried to remember what happened those days
When i saw my reflection though your eyes of the snake
It dragged me down the depth of my own
Insecurities no release but im at peace and it feels like home
Yeah it feels like home
Oo
I fear of letting go
Oo
As i watch this all unfold

The sea of color swallows me whole
Down to the depths of the unknown
I look to you in heavens high
But in this place there is no time

Recollecting the things that ive seen
It seemed so real yet it felt like a dream
I've come to learn in states of my own
Vulnerabilities its time to leave so mother please guide me home

Oo
I fear of letting go
Oo
As i watch this all unfold

The sea of color swallows me whole
Down to the depths of the unknown
I look to you in heavens high
But in this place there is no time

Repeat chorus x2
Track Name: Tell Me You'll Stay
You know im sorry
For everything that ive done to you
For all that ive put you through
I know it ain't right

You know im trying
Too do all that i can for you
But right now I'm hurting too
Ooo o oo o

I know its just the start
I feel it in my heart
Its time to make amends
And hope this never ends

Tell me you'll stay
Cause i can't walk away
Tell me you'll stay
Cause i cant walk away

So look into my eyes
And tell me what is it that you see
Cause I'm not the man i used to be

Baby can't you see
That this ain't how its supposed to be
I messed up and now your sufferin
Ohhhhh
Fucking did it
Ooo

I know its just the start
I feel it in my heart
Its time to make amends
And hope this never ends

Tell me you'll stay
Cause i can't walk away
Tell me you'll stay
Cause i cant walk away

No darling don't go
Down that road you've always gone x4

Tell me you'll stay
Cause i can't walk away
Tell me you'll stay
Cause i cant walk away
Track Name: Dissolution
I didn't know
This loneliness could grow
In the bottom of my empty heart

See i couldn't see
The dark inside of me
With all the light you brought around

And i couldn't hear
Your words were so unclear
Through the ones you used to bring me down

See we were made to plateu
Destined not to grow
Through all the love you left behind

But i still love you baby, from the bottom of my heart
And i still need you honey, for everything we are but im so
Down down etc.

You wouldn't hear,
You're mind was caught in fear
Of all the worst to come around

See i couldn't take
This slight divert of fate
That Dragged me back to Earth again

And i couldnt see
Blinded by disease
And the words you used to bring me down
See we were made to excel
But grounded as we fell
Though all the love you left behind

But i still love you baby, from the bottom of my heart
And i still need you honey, for everything we are but im so
Down down etc.

And i still love you so
(With all my heart)
Track Name: Gentle Goodbye
No way but up
And out the waves so high
You swim as you sing your last goodbyes
As you sink
Down to the depths of your mind
You worked it out
You worked it out
See the pain set fire to the anger inside
You weighed up your options and made up your mind
See it all came down to this moment in time
You worked it out
You worked it out

My Consciousness finds a new place to go
Oo oo oooooo oooooo oo
A darkness to to hide the thoughts i indulge
Oo oo oooooo oooooo oo
Tonight i strive for the lowest of lows
Oo oo oooooo oooooo oo
A Gentle goodbye

Nothing but darkened clouds
fill up my skies
You look for a voice to tell you it's fine
But its not
You wasted all of your time
Giving in to the thoughts that kept you up at night
See you fed all your demons
With the last of your pride
You looked for the light
While you covered your eyes til you
Broke and needed these thoughts to subside
You worked this out
You worked it out

My Consciousness finds a new place to go
Oo oo oooooo oooooo oo
A darkness to to hide the thoughts i indulge
Oo oo oooooo oooooo oo
Tonight i strive for the lowest of lows
Oo oo oooooo oooooo oo
A Gentle goodbye

The earth still turns
As i leave this all behind
The Fear entered your mind and it hijacked the ride
Til it won and you had no love inside
You worked this out
You worked this out
Track Name: Sun Don't Shine II
What did i dream as i left your womb
Was it structured and chained in the process of youth
Will it all be in vain when i reach my tomb
Ilforgotten the days of the life i pursued

Taken beneath the surface of night
Mistakenly followed the wave of the high
Becoming irate from the truth of the lie
Sedating my mind to forget what is right

Forced faith of an idol from a selection of few
sovereignty rains as we cry in the pews
Screaming their gospel of lies and abuse
To avoid separate choice with the same resolute

Watching in silence as hearts turn to stone
Bemused in a system of credit and loans
Dragged by the strings of vindictive crones
For the favor of rich and destruction of hope

Breaking your bread while you leave us for dead
Out of sight
Succumb to the terms of our world
And step back in line
Sewing you're seeds of deceit
Are you out of your mind
Welcome to the age of today
Where the sun doesn't shine
Track Name: Fear Is Blind
Through your eyes all you see is gray
And yet i still plead with you to stay
I know this may never to away
You live to see another lonely day
Deterioration of body and mind
But just take another drink you'll be fine
I hope you find the truth in time
And there peace you will find

Ive spent all this time
pushing this aside
As fear can be blind
So i try
I try to speak my mind
Pic the pain i see inside
Of your soul
The love that you hold
Don't let the fear take hold

Through your lies you've led me astray,
Guarded by pride,
You pushed me away,
Its hard to see you in this state
You wasted time
And now you're running late.
Anhebriation takes its toll on the mind
But just make another excuse you'll be fine
I know that theres no point in trying
Your stuck in the low
And live for the high

Ive spent all this time
pushing this aside
As fear can be blind
So i try
I try to speak my mind
Pic the pain i see inside
Of your soul
The love that you hold
Don't let the fear take hold
Track Name: Cicada
Walking alone watching your life
She said don't lose your mind
As she stands there alone
To watch by your side

Down from your throne
Still fucking high
Drifting through time
As your thoughts bring you down
To crush you at night

And i know its all state of mind
Just don't look too long she said
Remember the truths and don't trust the lies

Seeking for answers that you'll never find
Noone will know for sure
Enjoy who you are
And don't waste your time

Take a sip expand your mind
To explore and a new space at the edge of time
And i in down in a sense of my
Last chance to end this life

Grounded by fear
Guided by light
Color so bright
As the world starts to hum
And fade into night

Shot from the earth
With return out of sight
Don't even try
As your mind starts to run
To the shapes in your sight

And i know its all state of mind
Just come back as one she said
As touches your back and cries by your side

Love is the answer you'll never find
We are all one they said
Remember the cause and don't sweat the ride
