Track Name: Karma Sutra
Lurking around every corner
Beseeching everything that you hold

Waiting for that perfect moment
Lashing out 
Take it away

Without remorse
There's only suffering
Everything’s gone in a blink of an eye
There will be no redemption
On a path leading astray

All falling away nothing's okay
With all this weight on me it drags me down
But it will never keep this hole it's dug for me

And you can take this misery with all this pain inside of me
You can take this misery and all the pain inside of me

When this karma brings me to my knees
Will there be anyone there to save me
When this karma lifts me to my feet
Will it save me or destroy me

The picture painted is out of focus
Grasping onto what is true belief
A story told through half visions
Weaving its wicked web of grief

Like a rising tide, senselessly driven
A shadow lurks beneath this
Grasping in the darkness
To claim its soul

Even though in time the evil’s beaten
But the shadow remains beneath this
To redeem this hollow being
And claim its soul

When this karma brings me to my knees
Will there be anyone there to save me
When this karma lifts me to my feet
Will it save me or destroy me

Do we deserve this treatment?
Have we done wrong by karma?
When will everything turn around?
Will it ever be?

The time will come again
For all your hopes and dreams
Lost in karma’s fight
Left with only your screams
Track Name: Light Em' Up
So let's down another drink another shot to keep that feeling flowing
No one wants this ride to stop so let's give this crowd what they want
Another hit of this let's light 'em up
Let's keep this going

Can you feel it? I can taste it on my lips
It's like an oh sweet drug
Your heart beats faster with every hit (with every hit)
The more I do the more I want
The needle deep in my skin

So come on step up  and let's take some more of this shit
You won't regret it
Now let's see how we feel
With our heads in the clouds

I'm trying to keep my feet on the ground
But this sedative seems to be working
To tell the truth
Why would I want to come down?
Why would I want to come down?

So let's down another drink another shot to keep that feeling flowing
No one wants this ride to stop so let's give this crowd what they want
Another hit of this let's light 'em up
Let's keep this going

One last time leave it to me I'll show you how it's done
Don't you like seeing the world
Through these eyes nothing compares
One last time leave it to me I'll show you how it's done
Don't you like seeing the world through these eyes
This feeling is unreal

Now trying to keep my head in the clouds
Not being rude but I have no discretion
They say it's insane, I say it's the only way
Why would I want to come down?
Why would I want to come down?
Track Name: IHTWOW
I envision myself over and over again
Falling into a beautiful abyss
It seems so crystal clear
is this a dream? Nothing but water all around me
A beautiful horizon and a peaceful sea 

Should I believe that this is reality?
Should I believe in this peaceful sea? 

Caught in a tidal wave
Wake me from this dream
These tides won't release me
Can anyone hear me scream?
I'm drowning in this sea
I'm drowning in this

Caught in a tidal wave
Wake me from this dream
These tides won't release me
Can anyone hear me scream?
I'm drowning in this sea
I'm drowning in this sea

As the sky turns black the blue surrounds me
The current drags me
My lungs are filling
I can't get my way out of this
The current drags me 
My lungs are filling now

Is this my fate to drown in my own lies
Battling this denial is anyone watching me
Drown in desperation
The tides are dragging me
Deeper and deeper
Deeper into the unseen

A reflection of light is below me
A passage out of this dream
Or into another darkened abyss

As the sky turns black the blue surrounds me
The current drags me
My lungs are filling
I can't get my way out of this
The current drags me 
My lungs are filling now

The Storm is breaking
The Tides release me
The Sky is clearing
The Light has finally come!

I envision myself over and over again
Falling into a beautiful abyss
It seems so crystal clear
Track Name: To the Grave
You took my life and left me scarred
All that I wanted
Faithfulness
You said I’d always be yours

You threw it away
When you took his hand
You lost my love
In his bed

These days will end
Never to hold onto
The past because of you

I take this stand
I will not budge
And I, I take this to the grave

Now all that you wanted
Cannot become
Will never be
Because of you

Now I am trapped behind
Knuckles from white to red to blue
All that you gave me
Betrayal

My love was pure and you crushed it
You threw it away
Heartless!

You said I’d always be yours

Never able to see that you were always heartless
Never able to see that you were always heartless

These days will end
Never to hold onto the past because of you
I take this stand
I will not budge
I'll take this to the grave

And in my dreams
I see your face
I feel your grace
And it takes me away from this

My love
I have waited for so long
Waited and now you’re back in my heart
Take me away just take me away

My eyes awaken
No more fantasy
My heart is broken
This will never be

My heart is broken (broken)
This will never be
Your fake world's taken (taken)
Everything from me

My eyes awaken
No more fantasy

Oh my love
I have waited for so long
Waited and now you’re back in my heart
Take me away just take me away
Let this dream
Let it last forever
Baby come back to me come back
Take me away just take me away
Track Name: Through These Eyes
Lost the way, the path is frozen
To seal me from the truth
And shall I ever know what it’s like
Outside these walls (these walls)

The darkness leads me to a world of memories
The ground I walk on sounds like a thousand screams
A thousand screams
I dream of serenity but fear is all I perceive
Is this the end? Shall my mind consume me?
I dream of serenity but fear is all I perceive
Is this the end? Shall my mind consume me?

I've stitched the final seam
To destroy the light of fabric memories

These screams haunt me
Why won’t these tears help me now?
I keep ascending, ascending into a dream
Though what carries me

This world’s reality has forsaken me
I’ve created my own disease
As the decay manifests inside
My shadow descends within me

I’ve stitched the final seam
To destroy the light of fabric memories
These screams haunt me
Why won’t these tears help me now?
I keep ascending, ascending into a dream
Though what carries me

I've fallen into despair
