01. Infidel

Ghost
Passing through
...faceless fleeting
Infidel
Shadows remained
And all else
Was cast out with the tide

I dredge the depths
To find a meaning
Obscured by time
I search horizons yearning for answers
To who I am

Voices
An echo of the past
Diminishing
Leaving silence in your wake

I dredge the depths
To find a meaning
Obscured by time
I search horizons yearning for answers
To who I am

Dredging the depths
For meaning
Obscured by time
Searching horizons
For answers
I'll never find


02. The Pale Approach

Sun's warming light
Gives way to branches
Gilded in crimson and gold
A subtle chill
As shadows grow long

Autumn arrives
On wind in trees
Rust and firelight
Weave tapestries

Last glimpse of life
As color gives way
To impending gray
The pale approach
Of bitter, fucking cold

Winter arrives
On frozen leaves
Frost and candlelight
Autumn's reprieve


03. Sunset

Let's watch the sky fall
Consign to grave the dying day
In lingering amber light
An eventide's forgotten name

Yellow bleeds
Into cold gray hues
Stretched out and severing
Torn in two
Under these same skies
I lost myself

Let's watch the sky fall
Await the world to take us whole
Let's watch the sun fade
Abide in what cannot console

Yellow bleeds
Into cold gray hues
Stretched out and severing
Torn in two
Under these same skies
I lost myself


04. Dreaming Of Breathing

Hollow
Bereft of heart
Time hemorrhaging
Bleeding
Torn apart
Soul atrophied
The fires
That forged our souls
The embers have gone dark

Our eyes so blind we can't see
Our minds die as our souls weep
The life choked out by the hand that feeds

A final knife
In the back
The wound
Straight through the heart

Our eyes so blind we can't see
Our minds die as our souls weep
The life choked out by the hand that feeds
The air so thin we can't breathe
Our souls decay as our minds sleep
Our backs broken by the hands that feed


05. A Final Vestige

Our dreams are ephemeral
An elusive blur
Defenseless without devotion
Compromised by indifference

Adrift and asleep
Unconscious to transgression
The noise of the world
The thief of what once defined

Oceans of distractions
Run rings round our eyes
Awake enough to realize
We re tethered to the world

Adrift and asleep
Unconscious to transgression
The noise of the world
The thief of what once defined us


06. Ghosting

Saw you slipping by the way
Abiding in denial
Air that slows, with breath that weighs
Forecasting known conclusions

As we've drifted from these shores
I find there is no turning back
The winds can only carry us so far
Until they'll carry us no more


07. Hold On To Nothing

Edge of the world
Staring into the abyss
Gasping
As the hopelessness
That I have nothing more to give

When the ground
Has fallen from beneath
Grasp
At the void
As life slips from view
What remains
To hold on to

Hour of dread
Staring headlong at the end
Falling
Into nothingness
There is nothing left to lose

When life slipped from view
Nothing remained
To pull us through


08. Water's Edge

[Instrumental]


09. An Heir To Emptiness

Devoid of life
There is no light
Pursued by grief
Relentless
Undaunted

Loss of self
Into soullessness
Slipping away
To nothingness

Will to live
Cast aside
A hope
I cannot recognize

Loss of self
Into soullessness
Slipping away
To nothingness

Haunted by sorrow
And perpetual death
Pursued by grief
Through this dominion of ruin
My kingdom of emptiness

Emptiness
