Track Name: Black Thought
I'm lost again
Floating on clouds of black thought
To the places I'm not sure of really wanting to be.
could you rescue me?
I'm lost again
I've been thinking a lot about the end
And the things that I told you
every neatly worded lie
The deception I crafted
Came from my very desperate mind
In my heart of hearts I knew it wasn't the truth
but I needed something to feel right
And sometimes when you're at your darkest
All you want is to remember home
And while I may not of been totally capable of repentance
I still didn't want to feel alone
So I'm lost again
Drinking in the lies
Carried by a dark consciousness
And familiarizing my self with thoughts of demise
Track Name: A Wolf in Shepherds Clothing
Step into the blackest of minds
The perversion of grace
So their talons can cut inside
They come a little closer with the trust that makes them clean
But our absence of morality will destroy every dream
There is an exit
but a true escape you will never find
Because inside your mind there is realities to bleak to rewind .
The marks and the gashes will fade
But the true wounds glow bright red every time someone offers to pray.
The wolf has never had to work so much less
As if the lambs lay down in front of him and open their necks
And with a single bite
Their destroyed adolescence becomes his meal for tonight
Welcome to the darkest of souls
Where the ashes gather from the hearts fires now cold.
There is now darkness greater than someone masks it with light
Track Name: Stillborn
"Stillborn"
Such joy.
Such love
At the notion that the "weight" was over.
I've always gazed and wondered how you made it through.
The weight of want and its denial was so powerful
But we kept trying
For a face to replace the pain
A cry to silence the hearts longings
Then the news came
And the tears irrigated the plains of your soul
The knowledge he would be ours was amazing
But the thought he would be yours was enough
To erase the journeys scars
But heroes die and so did our (miracle)
And all the light in the room left at the sight
Of your lifeless figure
A body with no soul
A hand with no power to hold
Destroying in an instant everything
A cry to silence the hearts longings
Then the news came
And the tears irrigated the plains of your soul
After the brightest sun comes the heaviest rain
I was numb
But She was gone
And a piece of her heart washed away that day
Track Name: Mother's Eyes
We are not going to make it home
I've lost quite a lot of blood
And you are barely hanging on
Its times like these that hope has moved on
Went to another building
And to other lives
What ill miss most are my mothers eyes
And the hold of my father
Letting me know it would be alright
And I wish I could lie one last time in my own bed
And feel love surrounding me
Before I layed my head
A look to you
And my now brittle heart breaks
Because what hurts worse than my wounds
is your pleading face
And your outstretched hand
With what feels like a last push
Our fingers unite
It helps to know someone is there
Because now I've lost sight
With a whisper of encouragement I make sure our palms lock
Then nervousness washes over me as I hear another gun cock
Track Name: Truth Becomes the Teeth

Welcome to the darkest of souls

Track Name: By the Throat
What have I to gain?
I could take you by the throat
by the throat
And for a few moments
Still your breathing With tension
With tension, shared held breath of hopelessness
Exhaling a union of desperation
Shaking, ugly, rusted hooks
Pulling me back to you
but what have I to gain
If i lose my soul ?
What if I let go for a moment?
Regret is an imperfect lover ,
yet true to her word nonetheless
Track Name: Demons
And what am I to say for my demons?
The ones that you asked
To let go of
So long ago
Or risk diseasing the only thing
I shouldn't let go of
So that every time you've reminded
Me to let go.
I realize just how deep their hold
Has grown into my soul
A charred representation
A dramatic turn of life
Where we once were side by side
and step by step
I have let them reside
in the recess Of my mind
So that every time you've reminded
Me to let go.
And the poison that only you saw has corroded holes
And what am I to say for the demons I still keep?
What can I say for my lust for earthly beauty
Desires are my Jesus nearly as much as your son
And by letting them grow
Half of me hates what the other half has become
