Track Name: This Ghost of Ours
Open the mind
Look now into the past
What drives the fire
That burns the trail of our desire
This ghost of ours
Begs madly with our hearts
Our tendencies
Pave the path
That will be ours

Actions moved by anger
A soothing error
Brings forth danger

Separation
Of feelings from
Motives breathed
Unmasks a strange revelation
What we sow
So shall we see

Lets stop the time
Be still now,
rest the mind
What turns inside
When you look death in the eye
Identify
The terror you despise
Make it right
Change your mind
For your....

Actions moved by anger
A soothing error
Brings forth danger

Separation
Of feelings from
Motives breathed
Unmasks a strange revelation
What we sow
So shall we see

Actions fall not far from the tree
Thoughts seduced by tendency
Granted choices lie in hands
Yet crossing grain proves hard for man

Life:Your thoughts become your words become your
Ways:Your ways become your lies become your
Self:Your self becomes your slave becomes your Death
Track Name: Where the Ocean Meets the Sky
Where the ocean meets the sky
Great miles lie between their lines
From a distance eyes can't see
What lies beyond mere imagery
Mirror symmetry
Exists not in society
Pierce through the flesh
Damn this travesty
To judge the heart while skin you See

The worth of man we've yet to see
The roles we'll play remain unseen
Depth of the soul can not be known
If the heart you have not learned

Kings and beggars in their robes
Share the flesh but not the clothes
From a distance eyes can't see
What lies beyond mere imagery
Mirror symmetry
Exists not in society
Pierce through the flesh
Damn this travesty
To judge the heart while skin you See

Hollow perceptions
conceive friction
between allies
fooled by fleeting sight

Into the forest the wind blows
Unto a path
That would one day force your sweat
And then return to bring your ease
Into the wind throw
Impressions you cant know

Fleeting sight
Track Name: Wretched Flesh
Illusions are weaving their lies against me
Enchanting my passions, twisting my dreams
Well, I cannot bear this disease found in me
Damn it to hell with the beast that deceives

Now I've tried to find
So many times
What decides
The reason in my mind

I've come to understand
I am an evil man
Trading whats right
for the things I demand
So I must crucify
this curse in me
And damn it to hell

Action means turmoil, the bounty won't wait
Decision's complexion is beginning to fade
Well I cannot bear this disease found in me
Damn it to hell with the beast that deceives

No union in flesh
The battle persists
I'll find my rest
In my final breath
Have you ever wondered
Why we act the way we do
Has it crossed your mind
Something lives in you
Who will you choose
Lies or truth
Hate or love
Can you feel it move

I've come to understand
I am an evil man
Trading what's right
for the things I demand
So I must crucify
this curse in me
And damn it to hell

Choice is everything we have
Life erodes back in to sand
Blessed is the man who finds
A will won by sacrifice
Track Name: As The Dead Lead The Dead
I sense Infestation feed on creation
On the feeble mind it anchors it's disastrous plan
It would bring to the knees all it deceives
And though these sirens bat their eyes
I see behind their alibis
Their only hope is your demise
They lure you in to survive

I smell Devastation feed on creation
From it's evil heart comes it's disastrous plan
It would bring to the knees all it deceives
Your pledge to bring us comfort
Has been torn by reality
The words you have chosen
Have sealed your fate forever

Seductive, nostalgic
I try to find your
Deceptive directive
You warm the heart to break the knees
The incarnation of my frustration
I find meaning in it's voice
Deceptions binding nations
Feeds the fire of no relief

As you cast your pearls to swine

Bring out your dead
Bring your mind
If the sponge is soaked
By thirsty eyes
Do you smell the blood
Tears, sweat, and death
The lives laid waste
As the dead lead the dead
