I swim In his wake I am the Omega The end of everything I breath A putrid stench What he takes I collect I feed On precious life I exist In the absence of light I bring Inhuman pain I swallow All that remains On a pale horse I ride Where Death is always by my side

Sleep takes its hold Long cold nights along this road Shock settles in All you are and have ever been Stars in the sky Last thing you see before you die Awake just in time Some of us have highway eyes It waits for no one All of us a setting sun Lines in the night Some have called it second sight Lost at the wheel More than touch it's the feel Sight for the blind Some of us have highway eyes Sleep takes its hold Long cold nights along this road Stars in the sky Last thing you see before you die It waits for no one All of us a setting sun Sight for the blind Some of us have highway eyes The night is growing cold As darkness cloaks this road My highway eyes are barely open Barely open as sleep takes its hold And all you are All you are and have been It sets in Stars in the sky, take their hold And all you are All you are, and have been It sets in.

Hey, big star We heard you talking today Hey, top dog Sounds like you're throwing some shade Hey, thick skull Do you hear the things that you say? Hey, red Don It's less than 4 years away Hey, thin skin The tower's gonna crumble and break Hey, big star You'll still be throwing shade

As I gazed into the sea Of a million people Their eyes looked back at me And the beast in the mirror Defending their existence By existing to defend From some impending doom The never ending threat Their words I understood But they had no meaning Their minds have all gone soft But the heart, the heart's still beating What did you expect? An embrace for hypocrisy Being pushed to the test When their eyes look back at me The chanting reeked of fear You can smell it on their breath Entitlement and hate Pointed to the left We already fought this war And your side fucking lost You're prepared to pay the price But you haven't heard the cost Chaos brings the end With the sound of screaming The bodies hit the ground But the wound, the wound's still bleeding What did you expect? An embrace for hypocrisy Being pushed to the test When their eyes look back at me

Late to the party Early for the show Hearts of glass Minds of stone Caught in the heatwave Blankets of snow Seldom what you're expecting Never what you know Rust in the family Dust in our bones Lust for the bitter Trust in our own Dirt in the ashes Salt in the wound Sight through the flashes Sting of perfume

The rain it won't give The ocean takes it away The city it sleeps For just minutes each day How can I feel So alive and alone Nothing familiar I hunger for home Standing in the Halifax Mist Freedom in chains The port city in iron Everything's changed From my own selfish spiral How can I feel So alive and alone Nothing is real And all is unknown Standing on the edge of the world

Living and dying as we did through those years To witness it now like a glance in the mirror Cycles and patterns your prison confined Trained to locate the susceptible mind Reflex to reflect on mistakes of the past Defend and deflect all those questions you ask Forgive and forget they're just words on a page Something for nothing, you're counting the days Save yourself and save me the lies Admit to your faults as you chain me to mine Refuse and resist the undying change Something for nothing, you're counting the days Compassion compels with a vengeance unknown But the wants and the needs fought for were those of your own Relief from the plight it remained unsustained And the fuel for the fight it could not be contained Despite those intentions said to be pure The darkness that ailed me was not yours to cure A serial savior in your mind's own way But kind becomes pain when you're counting the days Living and dying as we did through those years Bound by our indiscretions and fears A new page to be turned, a new chapter to write Transforming the loss into guidance and light Reflex to reflect on mistakes of the past But a poison to linger and hold to steadfast Forgive and forget they're just words on a page Something for nothing, you're counting the days

Night falls to silence Nerves and endings alight Dusk leads to the dark Spirits fall in the night The whispering wake Nerves and endings alight Fault the silence Fight the emptiness Shot nerves and restless fears Black thoughts they coalesce Screams in the night (screams in the night) Dreamcraft in vain Dawn brings the light (dawn brings the light) Another horror waits Suffer through me Suffer unto me Whispers of lines and curves Secrets and cryptic signs Dreams in the night (dreams in the night) Witch house insane Fever and fright (fever and fright) Once more the devil sang Fear compels me Casts instinct aside Spirits call my name And my body abides Screams in the night (screams in the night) Dreamcraft in vain Dawn brings the light (dawn brings the light) Another horror waits Can't explain it It flows through my mind Can't contain it Or the darkness inside Dreams in the night (dreams in the night) Witch house insane Fever and fright (fever and fright) Once more the devil sang
