Track Name: The Kind
Rise – We take and give nothing
Rise – Keep taking, give nothing
So long as you get what you need
I say you are all thieving
Rise – Is that what you like
Rise – Is that OK?
Just take and take and take
Until there is nothing
Rise – Your truths are open
Rise – Your lies are our pain
It’s now the time to give
Let’s be the better man.
Rise
The Kind will rise
Track Name: Dier's Dirge
Dull and shallow we embrace
The time we have left in this place
We have come and gone
And we’ve done it wrong
Marching to the gallows’ grace

What we’ve become, can’t be undone
What we’ve destroyed, can’t be undone
There is something we have lost in this all
We’ve lost who we are

One foot in the grave
You regret to find you’ve been a slave
So afraid to give, afraid to live
Fearing left alone in the dull and shallow
What we’ve become, can’t be undone
What we’ve destroyed, can’t be undone
There is something we have lost in this all
We’ve lost who we are
Take the sea, open to me
Take the stars, take us to mars
Take the sea, open to me
Track Name: L'appel du Vide
Drifting, floating, into the sea
We are broken, we’ve been grinded
Down to our knees
Can you feel my touch from here?
A reach across the hemisphere
There is nothing left here
Dead is the Earth
I don’t know what it is you fear
We’ve been dead since our birth

My energy hurls into your atmosphere
In the direction of chaos
Hold the sea, above me head
Carry the girl, kiss the dead
There is nothing left here
Dead is the Earth
I don’t know what it is you fear
We’ve been dead since our birth
Track Name: The Sloth
What have you done here
You’ve lost your obligation
Your empathy has run dry
Have you any pride?
that which does not
Simply entertain you
The damage unfolds now
You force me to thrive

Twelve numbers cannot
Represent all of time
Our lives are a thousand lives

I am what you fear now
You are just a martyr
Lost in the hope of
All of what you deny
Come a little closer
I am sitting in the corner
Waiting for the children
Waiting to eat their souls

Twelve numbers cannot
Represent all of time
Our lives are a thousand lives

Within moments of your breath
As the(tear of a) wink of an old man dries
You have poisoned over
Thirty years of air
Let go of your toxins
You are now hollow
And from my corner
I take back all the air
Track Name: Anastatica
There is a place right here that you touch
So deep, so down, into my mine
Can’t come to close to my thoughts
Can’t let you close to this mind

It’s a place right here you must seek
So hard, so slow, buried in me
Can’t let you into this heart
Won’t let you close, not this time
Track Name: Highball
Lift your head from
The tracks dear son
The train has come
Your Train has come

Thought you might lose
Let go you choose
No pain, no dues
You’ve not yet paid.

You can’t see me
You don’t know me
Yet I know you
You are weak, untrue
