When there was a glimpse on the horizon ~ There was a flickering arising ~ It came on strong ~ Then it died forlorn ~ Dispirited from now on ~ The wonder faded ~ The echoes waned ~ The sky had chosen ~ No thunder no rain ~ When there was a glimpse on the horizon ~ There was a flickering arising ~ It came on strong ~ Then it died forlorn ~ Dispirited from now on ~ The wonder faded ~ The echoes waned ~ The sky had chosen ~ No thunder no rain ~ Yearn for the untouchable ~ Bet on the imaginary score ~ Waves recede but crash back again ~ They tease the land and then they drain ~ When there was a glimpse on the horizon ~ There was a flickering arising ~ It came on strong ~ Then it died forlorn ~ Dispirited from now on
2.
There’s a bird without wings ~ There’s a moth without light ~ Re-birthed to remain ~ Their will is found then lost again ~ Stripped of value ~ Picked clean of pride ~ From a time that was bright to the blight ~ What’s left to believe in ~ What’s left to hold high ~ Expressions are seizing ~ Emotions are dire ~ Without a reason ~ Not to expire ~ Dead metaphor ~ lost its’ lore ~ Sapped of all meaning ~ No themes come to mind ~ From a time that was bright to the blind ~ Crumbled to pebbles ~ Crushed to no size ~ Muzzled and bellowed ~ Thoughts kicked to the side ~ Kept in boarded up buildings ~ Where dead metaphors hide
3.
The only reflection I can see ~ Are the dark circles underneath ~ Eyes that harness the sadness ~ Until the last breath of madness ~ Rumination of the mind ~ To self-reflect ~ To be un-kind ~ Harm overrides ~ Any spark of life ~ Bled across the finish line ~ Rescued again but too late to mend ~ Harm overrides ~ Any spark of life ~ Tell-tales and lies ~ Full of bold disguise ~ But death arrived
4.
Falling into slumber ~ Brings no peace of mind ~ It stirs up horrors ~ It boasts of those unkind ~ Endless like a circle ~ Endless on repeat ~ To drown yet burn ~ For eternity ~ So close to dying ~ Falling ~ So far from living ~ Running ~ The mare weighs down ~ Screaming ~ Cracks the heavens whip ~ Lost ~ Endless like a circle ~ Endless on repeat ~ For eternity ~ So close to dying ~ Falling ~ So far from living ~ Running ~ The mare weighs down ~ Screaming ~ Cracks the heavens whip ~ Lost ~ Seconds minutes hours ~ There is no way to tell ~ Feeling more terror ~ Than those strung up in hell ~ A sense of fear is coming here ~ Cuts the breath ~ Cuts the cord

The Ruin 02:49
The ruin ~ The unraveling of reliance ~ The undoing ~ Shaping forms of silence ~ Held inside we hide ~ The ruin ~ The unraveling of reliance ~ The undoing ~ Shaping forms of silence ~ Held inside we hide
6.
Bitter Past 09:35
Forgive to forget ~ Forgive to move on ~ Spoken so eloquently ~ But chronically wrong ~ Pardon to let pass ~ As all things must pass ~ Let go if you can ~ Like the Buddhas of man ~ Hold tight to this stubborn plight of principle ~ Hold on to doing time for another’s crime ~ Hold tight ~ Hold on ~ Pretend for the good of man ~ A noble gesture ~ Put on a gleaming smile ~ Frown in secret ~ Erased ~ Deleted ~ Poured out the spout ~ Words were chewed up ~ But never spit out ~ Hatchets are buried ~ Freedom is cast ~ Flames are molting ~ The bitter past ~ Hatchets are buried ~ Freedom is cast ~ Flames are molting ~ The bitter past ~ No reward comes with forgiving ~ The case is closed if you can stop the spinning ~ Hatchets are buried ~ Freedom is cast ~ Flames are molting ~ The bitter ~ Bitter past
