Track Name: Chariot
The sea is calm tonight
I'm swept away from its very motion
And miles to go before I sleep
These fragments I have shored
Against my ruins
Reinventing a realm of dreams
Returning the waves of ease

Boundaries escalate me
Castles in air
Is something I can't compromise
Over and over again
A clear conscious mind
Trapped myself in a honest state

Across the land
In this last moving chariot
I spotted you eye to eye
Nothing changes the surface on the walls
Under your skin,
Void spaces surrounding me

Boundaries escalate me
Castles in air
Is something I can't compromise
Over and over again
What the world has in stored
And how luminous it offers

But as I cogitate,
False hopes revolve around constantly
The wreckage of my days
Pages fill with empty words
Under your skin,
I'll reignite this conviction

Everything lost in place
Everything lost in flames
Everything ain't worthwhile
Everything departed

We were all rooted in the same old gesture
Compound in both lost and found

Another story to break my stones apart
We fell in the distance of perfect parallels

With nothing left to say
With nothing left to hold

I'm dormant
I'm stagnant
I'm broken
I'm sinking
Casualty at its finest
Track Name: Fallacy
I can't withstand
Holding onto the words
That were never conveyed
Twenty-two in a dire state
Relentlessly wandering and astray
Forever bringing back
The valor I have
At least I try

Between the ties of everything
This is what I've eyes for eternity
Will you be a part of this final cadence
I can't forget the times I had
With nothing left to save me from my urges
Filth and fury purge me off from these

Impurities
Exalt to better days
Take this to heart
And wear it on my sleeves

Like a beautiful drug
I can't do without you
Loving every instant
Like is best for you
So now i close my eyes
To feel your presence alive
Enchantment of horizons

I'll grip on tightly
Discard the mask
We hide behind
There is no remorse
Only closure in our
Hearts and minds
A congregation in love
The air I'm breathing is something
So much smoother

All we saw was coloured by the sun
Certainty is we have each other's back
Predestined to be saved
A dream within a dream
To keep out in harm's way
Let us affray

The reflection of false fallacy
Won't go down to my grave
It's possible to feel attached
To a kind of happiness that saves me
I won't forget you until the end of time
Track Name: Hourglass ft. Brandon Tanoto (False Plaintiff)
And so I'll start off with this
it's seized me by the ankles of
my sodden, worn-out frame

I rode the wind and surfed the tides,
but flinched and now the oceans have my body.
My lungs, they now feel tight.

And armed with nothing but flailing limbs
and a broken soul, I find myself drowning
in your turbulent waters.

In the distance, from the lighthouse
you watched, but your soul wasn't sated,
they call for something much more saturated.

Confused state of mind
Falter words spoken
Composed memories
Living with questions

The hourglass passing
From top to bottom
I'll seek you again
To the world's end you know

Bane of my existence

A catastrophe with no deplore
Days when blue skies
Would Never pass
Track Name: Painted Dreams
I closed my eyes to feel what's left of me inside
The clock is ticking and I'm moving forward
Letters that mean so much
Bury all your words into the ground

I found comfort in your presence
But now everything has changed
A ghost that haunts me in my head
Sitting on my bed swaying back and forth
Wondering where we went wrong
Morosely contemplating

Manifested the ways
Of this complication has uphold
There's nothing you can do
Another story to break my stones apart
Piling up to the brim of my limits

I found comfort in your presence
But now everything has changed
A ghost that haunts me in my head
Sitting on my bed swaying back and forth
Wondering where we went wrong
Morosely contemplating

When we were young
And all we saw
Was coloured by the sun
The days were long
The nights chills to my bones
Stranded here
I've been counting the days
To wake up unstructured
To feel my cold feet
To see a light at the end of the tunnel
Days of golden

To the hand that keeps
Pulling you
deeper and deeper
Is just better to vacate
The mountains I have climbed
Retrace the steps of life
Time has worn, but not me

I found comfort in your presence
But now everything have changed
A ghost that haunts me in my head
Sitting on my bed swaying back and forth
Wondering where we went wrong
Morosely contemplating

I've come to realised that
Life is nothing more
Than a
Walking shadow
Track Name: Vices
Of many vices
There is a time when the rain
Cascades down like a waterfall.
This drench of hopelessness,
Left me drowning with a heavy heart.
With weary hands, and idle thought.
Now my colours have turned to grey.

Every moment and every second,
We allow our ignorance to prevail
Upon us all. The vitality given,
To a grieving hollow.

Never again will I have to
Drown these demons in sorrow.
Never again will I have to
Drag this pain undesirable.
Never again

Set sail to a place of peace.
Divide the ocean, the path we chose.
Consume the light, breathe in the only candour.
Concrete bed
Withered leaves
Still bright enough

Castaway from here, fly
