Track Name: Event Horizon
We live in a world where we have become blind burial places
Where we take bliss in our naivety and ignorance

I won't give in and abandon this
Just like a heart that has grown cold
Do we not have a choice
To not just die as we are growing old?

It seems I'm alone in this world unknown
Where my conscience has led me
Can we outgrow what we've always known?

And now I've passed the event horizon
Where no one's eyes can see
And my words fall on deaf ears
And no one is listening

I'll stand here and wait for the day where no one is above another
And I'll hold tightly the hope that we can save each other

What can we do to save ourselves?
When every eye is blind, every shoulder turned
When the cries still fall on deaf ears
But now I see an awakening

I see an awakening

It seems I'm alone in this world unknown
Where my conscience has led me
Can we outgrow what we've always known?

And now I've passed the event horizon
Where no one can see
And my words fall on deaf ears
And no one is listening

I'll never turn my back
I see an awakening
Track Name: Wasteland (feat. Luke Holmes)
You’re trapped in a mind blinded by hate
Time after time your lies on repeat
Lose the illusions you hold in your head
Can’t trust a man whose word is dead
A king who walks with the weak
Will never find the path I lead
So many stories of places that you’ll never see
Find your key and learn to break free

You’ve lost all that you’ve wanted
That’s what you get for who you are
You’ve lost it all and you can’t get it back
You won’t get it back

With a heart so cold, your mind will never be free
Free from the lies of your past, the thoughts that fill your dreams

With a mind made out of glass
The shards of your thoughts will cause destruction
Collapsed aspirations and broken buildings
Are left in the wake of your delusions
Unleash your cure upon the world
And infect the innocent minds
You’re nothing, you’re worthless
I know you will never be anything

This is all that we can take,
We’ll put an end to this

When will you open up your mind and
See the person you’ve become
You’re broken and alone
Will you ever find what you’re searching for,
What you’ve been longing for?

With a heart so cold, your mind will never be free
Free from the lies of your past, the thoughts that fill your dreams

Welcome to Wasteland
Track Name: Deserter
I can't sleep at night and not feel dead inside
The parasites rot my mind, ingest all my lies
Self-absoption plagues their minds
And your heartbreak? It eats me alive

I've hid behind this mask for too long
And I've kept my horrors in an empty space
In the spaces between bones and all the valleys unknown
With my heart in my throat, I'm screaming out to you

Don't let go,
And follow these footsteps
Through the valleys and the bones that you used to know
Don't let go,
We are the voices of the lost, the broken souls
The ones who carry you home
We are the broken souls the voice of regret

I've seen you rot amongst this wasteland
Where I was left alone
I've seen you rot amongst this wasteland
Now it's time to come home

We are the king, we are the fallen hearts
And while we live, we'll never be apart

Don't let go,
And follow these footsteps
Through the valleys and the bones that you used to know
Don't let go,
We are the voices of the lost, the broken souls
The ones who carry you home

We are the ones who will carry you
We are the ones who will carry you home
Track Name: Winter Solstice
The loneliness and the haunting cold is a forgotten place
That I call my home,
Where the sun’s warmth, it is hollowed by the snow
And the lifeless trees don't dare to grow

I am the whispers in the deep
The constriction, the grip beneath
I am the breath on the night
The past left behind,
The cold that steals the life

Silent, misery awakes me,
Opening up my chest to find nothing more than a dark shadow
Banished by thoughts that fill my mind
Welcomed by the reflected light

So hold your breath as clouds cast shadows
Into the deep valleys of my mind
Lighting up the august sky

The frost leads the way through this enchanted place
So hold your breath, it's sinking in
Track Name: Daydreamer
I awake with my heart bound to forest floors,
To the vines that embrace the trees
Intertwined with the roots that feel beneath
Where the canopies fill my dreams

I've never felt so lost in this unacquainted place
Let the tangled branches consume your heart

We'll run the boardwalks that hang from the skies,
Leaving our traces where no heart can hide
Chase the pages and anchors that soar through the clouds
Let go of the undergrowth

Night has brought to those who sleep,
Only dreams they cannot keep
Rotten and broken in their beds
They cannot capture this

Abandon the fantasies of night and open your eyes
Daydreamer, this is reality

And I’ve shown you what’s in my heart
And you keep out the fire that’s burning me down
And I haven’t slept in days
So don’t wake me up
And I’ve shown you what’s in my heart
And you keep out the fire that’s burning me down
And I haven’t slept in days
So don’t wake me up from reality

My love won’t be hollowed
Like the trees that have fallen from sorrow

The skies are leashed with foxes
And the ground is murdered by crows
The midnight sun guides me home
To the love I’ve always known

And I’ve shown you what’s in my heart
And you keep out the fire that’s burning me down
And I haven’t slept in days
So don’t wake me up
And I’ve shown you what’s in my heart
And you keep out the fire that’s burning me down
And I haven’t slept in days
So don’t wake me up from reality

We'll run the boardwalks that hang from the skies,
Leaving our traces where no heart can hide (where no heart can hide)
Chase the pages and anchors that soar through the clouds
Let go of the undergrowth

Abandon the fantasies of night and open your eyes
Daydreamer, this is reality
Track Name: Constellations (feat. Michael McLeod)
Light up the night and hide from
The shadows that fill your mind,
The shadows that fill your mind
The sadness that rules the night

Fall sleepless, under patterns that line the sky
Wake up to the clouds and the wolves
That hunt under streetlights

Will we ever see what's inside of you?
Where the moon and stars tide your imagination
Where the darkness clouds your dreams
Where the world isn’t what it seems
Will we ever see what's inside of you?
What's inside of you?

So I'll tread softly through your dreams,
Where the silhouettes can't cover up your fears
I'll give you a hand to hold
And help you out of the darkness you know

Light up the night and hide from
the shadows that fill your mind,
the shadows that fill your mind
the sadness that rules the night

Light up the night

Wait for the sun to rise
The strangers hide in the cold dark night
The fear is in your own mind
The fear is in your mind

Will we ever see what's inside of you?
Where the moon and stars tide your imagination
Where the darkness clouds your dreams
Where the world isn’t what it seems

Open up your eyes to the night
and watch the stars collide
Let your heart run free
From the thoughts that haunt your dreams
The night won't capture us
