Track Name: A Tormenting Silence
Merciless words uphold the lingering illusion
Anxious thoughts succeed in limiting movement
Asserting completely that everything will bleed
The ubiquitous pattern has revealed itself to me

Removing the memories that try so hard to stay
For a moment longer I wish to go away

Why is death absolute and life left to chance?
Always clawing at my skin in attempt to feel again
Wailing cries of mercy but secretly wanting more
Never again will I possess what was torn

Persistent taunts leaves my sympathy scorned
Below reason my demons are reborn

Removing the memories that try so hard to stay
For a moment longer I wish to go away

Why is death absolute and life left to chance?
Always clawing at my skin in attempt to feel again
Wailing cries of mercy but secretly wanting more
Never again will I possess what was torn
Track Name: In Descension
Demented cynicism enthralls my mind
Forever hoping I never see the light
Hidden in my self-proclaimed fractured shell
I recall the presence that bestowed this veil

Falling through the memory that I’ve forgotten before
Hearing the voice and its ever familiar lure
Dreading the realm that lurks beyond
Empty and dead to the sun

Failing to see what’s there
An objection of every fear
Below I am destined
In Descension

Recognizing faces that I thought gone
Grasping for the sensations that I so dearly longed
Thoughts I abandoned now whisper in my ears
As I listen to the madness the bottom draws near

Failing to see what’s there
An objection of my fears
Below I am destined
In descension

Now I feel the cold etching down my spine
The depths have summoned me and I must abide

No mercy for a fool, for I have sealed my fate
Self-fulfilling prophecies will drag you to your grave
No more fear for I know what awaits
Dreading the truth that I have dreamed too late
Track Name: Through The Nether
The beauty of the world has revealed itself to me
Through passages unseen I discovered whispered dreams
I’ve come to understand the purpose of my pain
Spawning the desire to break my chains

I was led to believe that I dwelled in eternal night
A distant longing has unveiled my lies
Forever gazing at the horizon I must claim
Forever inspired by the coming days

For all the times that I was so blind to see
For all the memories that I buried so desperately
A glimmer of light has peered through the caverns
By my solemn ember I traverse through the nether

For all the times that I lunged but did not fall
For all the ones I drained and dissolved
A glimmer of light has peered through the caverns
By my solemn ember I traverse through the nether

Clinging to deceit as I continued to decay
Those venomous thoughts now have been unmade
And now I know that it was never too late
And now I embrace my remaining days

I was led to believe that I dwelled in eternal night
A distant longing has unveiled my lies
Forever gazing at the horizon I must claim
Forever inspired by the coming days

For all the times that I was so blind to see
For all the memories that I buried so desperately
A glimmer of light has peered through the caverns
By my solemn ember I traverse through the nether

For all the times that I lunged but did not fall
For all the ones I drained and dissolved
A glimmer of light has peered through the caverns
By my solemn ember I traverse through the nether

This realization comes with a cost
Yearning for redemption and the hours I have lost
Despair and hopelessness enraptured my mind
In that state I came to a place where nothing shines

Why did I hide from that which I needed most?
Why did I obscure myself from those who were close?
Neglecting their concern and selfishly consumed with dread
Resenting their words and wishing to be dead

And now I am free
