Track Name: Put Down
I'm at a loss for words now
Enunciate all hours fleeting
False impressions reconciling
and all these faces demonizing

Lets do it all again now
Vicious cycles never ending
This parasitic disenchantment
Growing tired of compromising

Put Down
Struck to the ground

And this is what we have worked so hard for?
These conversations lead us on and on
To resolutions out of reach now gone
Moving faster. Gracefully onward

She's the deer in headlights, now
The only one whose running out
Put Down, Struck to the ground
fatally wounded crying…

I’ve been put down
Struck to the ground

Without warning
Black and blue, marks its territory
Bleeding hearts failing
Infrared, all incriminating

And Without warning
Black and blue, paralyzing me.
Heartbeat ceasing
Infrared, all disclosed.

Look. Out. Right behind you.
Blink. Shout. It’ll all be over soon.

Take a glimpse at all your world has been.
Remarkable how mundane turns reverent.
Quick. Jump. One last chance my dear.
Put. Down. ‘tween the asphalt and air.
Flip a switch and all your fears have changed.
Transformed from what they used to say.

Finally found my tongue, how?
Enunciate all pulse now fleeting
False impression all deciding
one mere driver demonizing

Without warning
Black and blue, marks its territory
Bleeding hearts failing
Infrared, all incriminating

And Without warning
Black and blue, paralyzing me.
Heartbeat ceasing
Infrared, all disclosing...
Track Name: Revenants
REVENANTS
Breathe again now
Scream unto them.
This reckoning, and decree that they leave…
When there's nothing left to say
Nothing more than counting bodies
Crawling away
Stirring in their graves,
Ya this evil has a new face
Grinning widely disarray

These dead things they
stew and they grew
Evacuates
the new, oh so cruel.

Live again now
Scream unto them.
This reckoning, and decree that they leave…

When there's nothing left to say
Nothing more than counting bodies
Crawling away
Terrorizing from the grave
Ya this evil has a new face
Hell on earth, this disarray

These dead things they
stew and they grew
Evacuates
the new, oh so cruel.
Glory to your figurehead
Loyalty to a lower power
Amen… they said…

Bow down to your maker
Loyalty to the lowest power
Hallelujah
On your knees, you feel the pressure
Cold steel barrel, pull the trigger
Eradication

Bow down to your maker
As loyalty has lost its power
Amen…
Hole in your empty head
Brainwashed by all they said
Amen…
Redemption’s not your haven
Burn in hell for the lives you’ve taken
Amen…

Redemption’s not your haven
Burn in hell for the lives you’ve taken
Amen…they said.

On your knees, you feel the pressure
Cold steel barrel, pull the trigger

Breathe again now
Scream unto them.
These revenants, and decree that they leave…
Scream unto them, won’t you scream?

When there's nothing left to say
Nothing more than counting bodies
Crawling away
Terrorizing from the grave
Ya this evil has a new face
Hell on earth, this disarray

These dead things they
stew and they grew
Evacuates
the new, oh so cruel.
