Track Name: Three of Swords
Wash away the pain

Wipe away the tears

Pierced through the heart

The Three of Swords.
Track Name: BCE
A great divide threatens to bury this place

A deep sea of insecurity

Forked tongues as far as I see

A second face has no use to me

6 years as a part of this trend

Redemption as it comes to an end

Force this change, we’ve lost our way

Is this the way its gotta be?

Change your current mentality

No more thoughts of duality

Subculture based on inclusion

Reality, no more illusion.
Track Name: Barricade
Abuse of power, Protection cannot be found

Depend on no one, Embrace the fucking cold

I’ll use this anger as a weapon

Broken seams that never got mended

Winter nights have never been colder

Aggression turned to action as I soldier on.

Brick and mortar now

Until no light will ever shine through.

Trapped here-I have stolen myself

Safety at the largest expense

Reaping everything I slaved to sow

Bleeding from the deepest wound

The deepest wound

As a prayer without knees

Has no hope of making change

Like a kiss lacking lips

Heals no pain
Track Name: End of An Era
I am empty and I am jaded

I am cold and the world has faded

Because this love is a risky business

Broken dreams and misplaced wishes

I hear you asking ‘Is this forever?’

Most days I don’t want to remember

Your lips. Your eyes. That kiss. Those lies.

It will never make sense, how this hole in my fucking chest

Could bleed so much. Could burn so fucking bad.

For half of our time, you had half of a heart

And in the blink of an eye, you fucking tore mine apart

The end of an era-Time goes by, but here I lay

The end of an era-Drown the sounds, erase the memory.

The end of an era-Betrayed by many don't know who to trust

The end of an era-Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
