Track Name: Hide Your Hearts
These monsters
These demons -
Too scared to love us
Their folklore
And fable -
What they're afraid of
One planet
One people
No reason too feeble
To make a change
But they are so afraid

We are the sinners
We are the saints
We are the guilty
And we're free of all blame

Hide your hearts
They turn us into gods
We take what isn't ours
And drain our hearts
The truth is stained with blood
What monsters we've become
So hide your hearts

They give less
And want more
What do we live for?
The future
Uncertain
Who bares the burden?
When darkness
Brings questions
And our worth is tested
Don't be afraid

We are the hunters
We are the prey
We are the killers
That live in our graves

If knowledge is power
Why make ourselves so helpless?
If knowing's half the battle
Why aren't we halfway there?
Track Name: In the Beginning, it is Always Dark
When the broader horizon
Seems to endlessly recede
Will we choose fear
Or understanding?

I've made up my mind
Opened my eyes

Turn this darkness into light
Bring this purpose back to life
I lose my breath sometimes
But a heart still beats inside

When you see the future-
Is there endless suffering?
Or will we break free?
Who will you be?

I've made up my mind
Defenses destroyed
Cast out the lies
Of phantoms inside

Turn this darkness into light
Bring this purpose back to life
I lose my breath sometimes
But a heart still beats inside

I needed death
To bring me back to life
I lost my breath
But a heart still beats inside
The more I bleed,
The more this means to me

I've made up my mind
Track Name: Wide Awake
Take this future
I've poisoned it with fear
It's like a cancer
We know will reappear

If the here and now's too soon
Then what becomes of me and you?
Let's let go and start anew

I'm wide awake
In this new moment with you
In every step we've arrived

The end of suffering
The start of better things
i finally feel like we're alive

The shapeless vapors
Of my disappearing dreams
Have formed the ghosts of
The nightmares that haunt me

In their echos there's
A secret I already know
Take ourselves back from the afterglow

I'm wide awake
In this new moment with you
In every step we've arrived

The end of suffering
The start of better things
i finally feel like we're alive

When everything breaks apart
Give up your broken heart
We'll take back what's ours
We'll make a brand new start
