Track Name: Before The King
Track Name: Forlorn
My final hopes fled / Amongst a sadly solemn crowd.
On the brink of an eclipse / As the sky comes crashing down.
I never promised anything / Not a duty but a cause.
I tried, I swear, to liberate / The storm shall take its course.

Forget / For you / Forever / Forlorn

[Verse 2]
I won't make it back / Not this year at least.
But I'll wish the seasons' motion / And I'll pray for winter's cease.

[Chorus 2]
(You can't understand why)
For You
(With no end in sight)
(The cold air burns with a brilliant white)
(This woeful journeyman won't soon be left to die)

I won't make it back / Not this year at least.
But I'll wish the seasons' motion and pray for winter's cease.
Track Name: Pariah
Your words are / only worth their tone, and /
Pained enough to show you're / broken at the bone.
There's peace in restless / eyes and /
Pages of our lives / turn to compromise.

And in this dawn I see an / end to the path you've taken me; /
A place I never thought I'd / meet again.


Like the moon to the tide you / are a silent guide /
Compelling me to where this struggle / ends.

Track Name: Reservoir For The Restless
Blind gaze. Distant haze.
Another hand to turn the page.
Oh, won't you tell me so I can know?
Tell me, please, how the story goes.

Pray, child, pray for the rain to /
Fill up this basin and wash away our /
Fear, child, and pray for the sun to /
Keep us from darkness and stop the eternal /
Sleep, child, sleep away pain /
Let this world heal you from that which we have /
Done, child, you can't run away but /
I have been cursed to endlessly -

Roam / And I roam
And I search / For my home
Through the hurt.

Keep the roses / red and live while you're / young.
Fake it all you / want; always pressing / on.
Hold your colour don't / let your blood run / clear.
Go back to the / place where you belong.

Pray, child, pray for the rain to /
Trickle down creek beds and fill our hopes and /
Dreams, child, and pray for the sun to /
Burn away those who would wish us to never /
Wake, child, mourning is free /
Take all you know. the ebb and flow is unseen /
Child, it's nothing to me for /
I have been cursed to endlessly roam.
