The wires are live The lights are on I'm in the system But something's wrong I'm losing control of my head Subconscious is dead I'm logging out I'm shutting down Let this machine rise From the ground Unleashed I'm awake once again At the start of the end Break the rhythm Fight the system Let go of the chains Before we go insane Breathing human The illusion Disappeared to me 'cuz we are not machines I'm losing sleep Because I'm cold I'm shining chrome now From what I'm told I'd call this a state of alarm The link does me harm I'm cutting cords I'm setting free The human part that's Left of me We're all in a spiral here So throw a wrench in the gears Can't you see the truth The machines are using you I won't bend I'm not a mindless fleshling They take hold But my heart keeps on beating I'm alive But they are not what they seem Listen now And know we are not machines

Just leaving footprints in the sand I built with my own hands The shores of my despair I can't believe there's nothing more I'll struggle 'till I'm sore To find escape somewhere Nobody's supposed to feel like this One's chance to shine with so much risk It's a game of chances now And the odds aren't on my side Drowning, I scream for someone's aid No one can hear the noises fade I need the chance to rise From darkness, from oceans to skies I'd rise above the waves and storm And find help to reform The pattern that I'm in I built this cage around my life Gave my enemies a knife But I won't dare fall again Give me a chance for one last try Play the game or we all die The water here is rising We've all been down and out before So join me in the war Against the self-destructing Letting go of hopes divine Giving in to dreams of mine Spreading wings and taking flight When the past still lies in waste The future's something to embrace Moving forward, shining bright

The darkness Lends an heartless drone to the endless wailing Forgive me For so very long I've been blindly sailing Across your sea of broken dreams Your darkest days and saddest scenes Our glass house cracked So don’t look back It’s too late now Here I can see you The bitter side of me Those whispers seep through The evil they can't see Sick, twisted brother The plans have now unfurled Vile like no other, set me free of Your wicked, wicked world The balance Is thrown by your deception I see this In your twisted, dark perception Don't look to me to be your guide I'll drown you in the rising tide So set me loose I'll tie your noose And bring you down Sometimes I need to believe That you're a separate side of me Even if that's not true I have to silence you Your poisoned words infect my head So I'll paint your black heart red And then your wicked world Will turn to something new

Dragonheart 05:14
Moments pass like photographs Like pages filled with our own pasts You're the happy ending to this tale And now I can't fail I'm reckless without a plan You know that I'm no superman But I can keep you safe if you hold on I know this can't be wrong Can't do this without you Together we can make it through These roads around The battleground Chapters closed, on a new start We're getting to my favorite part 'cuz you're the only one Who can tame my dragonheart Despite my strong desire You sometimes feel my breath of fire It doesn't mean I'm angry, just confused I don't know to choose Between my bitterness And the ending that comes after this I know I want you though it's hard to change So let's just turn the page Never feel like you are alone In the midst of the fire we found home It's our happy ending And no one's gonna stop us now I'm a beast with a heart that's frozen But with you, now my eyes are open I see the struggles coming But we will strike them down somehow You're the savior of My ability to love I found the will to change in you Though I'm still ashamed If how I start the flames You accept me for what's true

Don't raise your voice The yelling stops if we have no choice We're using borrowed time When no one's talking This feels just fine It's not ideal But this is better than the fighting feels I don't wanna hurt Facing our issues Stings so much worse Nobody cares If we sit and stare At pictures of A time we loved But now that love ain't there So blow me a kiss The hurt won't exist We can pretend It's not the end 'cuz ignorance is bliss Maybe it's best To let this love die without the stress Of shouting names and lies Let's skip the pain And just hold tight Please hold your tongue Pretending to like you is so much fun It's fake and I know it's wrong But no one's hurting So play along No, I won't let go Just one last show For old time's sake You'll love me fake Someday we'll lose But now I choose To believe What I perceive
6.
I'm afraid we'll never know The paths we didn't choose I'm too scared to let it go So long we've been confused You hated The way I Never made a move without a plan But no more Now I'm Just moving whichever way I can Turning tides and Days gone by We'll never know The time we wasted Don't look back I'm far behind We'll never know How far we've faded Some would think we're still in place But this place isn't home I've stopped trying to show my face Because we're so alone I hated The way you Never made an effort towards tomorrow So will you? We know now There is no time left to borrow I've never known someone like you But I hate everything we do Nobody cares anymore With all the secrets out the door We'll never know what we had before
7.
We are The war's all stars Fighting off the villainy Of our own epiphany No, we won't Let our goal Of a better system Drive Earth to darker vision It's a mistake But this we can take Race to the finish and now We're gonna win it Never outmatched The best are dispatched Avoid this cold extinction Our world's programmed affliction It's all coming together The countdown's at an end Gods and men fighting as equals As allies, not as friends But all it takes To raise the stakes Is a world worth fighting for You've crossed a line For the last time This means war Our time Has led us to shine The path we're on to victory Runs with blood and misery It's a sick game Because death came To the young and innocent In this metal instrument It's a crisis But one we can fix The strings that puppeteer us Now begin to fear us The time is now To sort this out A clockwork apparition Has challenged our position The skies are ringing with metallic singing A binary general The spirits are broken and the monster's awoken Rise, synthetic devil When the shields are shattered, our heroes battered It seems our saviours are no more Our magnum opus has turned against us This means war
8.
It’s all in your head He tries to say Close your eyes And they go away So he locked me in As the night begins I see the teeth Behind the smile Metal ghouls Haunt this broken child They followed home And I’m not alone Don’t steal the breath From me tonight I’m hiding with No means to fight There’s someone in the hall I can’t escape them all I saw who killed These twisted souls They only haunt The child who knows Or are they in my head? The monsters under my bed It’s just a phase They call my fear No one can see The evil here A monster killed And his victims rose I think they want To make me pay For the life That he took away I’m not to blame Still they play this game I haven’t felt like this before Nothing seems real anymore Are they the echoes of his scheme Or is my mind just losing steam I’m so Afraid Of this feral masquerade Take me Take me Let it end
9.
A deadened flame We tried to fan But nothing can change If no one takes a stand They would rebel Safe at home But we're outside Their comfort zone It's all unjust And I feel I must Take an action towards A brighter day Stuck in between The world and the screen Life will never go your way We're writing on the walls But no one's looking We're fighting for the truth And nobody cares We're building something new And no one's with us We've answered the call But nobody's there A world untouched By hands that care We live in a ghost town And no one's scared I'm going to try To raise my voice Not to strike fear But offer a choice So we've come this far This is where it starts It's a wake up call For what's true And I'm so betrayed By those too afraid To fight for the goals we pursue Not with power But with peace We'll be the voice Of the very least So don't fear them Just stand behind The truth you know 'cuz you know it's right You're reblogs, your retweets, and your hate campaigns Don't mean anything if you just complain Enough silence, let's band with the restless few If the driven rise, will they rise with you?

Promises 05:16
Just take my hand and run Towards what our hearts have called to The struggles that we've been through Have made us stronger here Broke free from those who said We're never going to last They hurt us in the past But those words have disappeared Let out a sigh Remember the time We fell so fast One at a time Our stars fell in line And we knew we're meant to last Mistakes we made and memories Still with us like that summer breeze From way back then to promises and rings I wouldn't change a thing I'm still a clueless fool But you make me something better We're more when we're together Than we ever were apart Now we're just gaining speed There's so much left to do I'm ready here with you The one who holds my heart So what comes next Who knows, but I'm ready There's so much left We'll live, love, and carry On with our lives Through hard, bitter times And hold on tight Our memories They made you and me And I know we made them right

Black Holes 05:49
I'd like to carve a hole In my all-seeing eye Then resurrect myself Years after my demise I'll be the blade that cuts The cables from your head Fear nothing, but embrace The drive you feel instead I'd like to reconcile The conflicts in my heart These broken lights inside Are tearing me apart An iron mind commands The deeds I have to do Black holes inside my soul Are pulling me from you Somewhere inside this place You're with her, unamused By my mistakes, the aches Of having you to use It's just a test, not a game But here you've reached the end I'm told to kill you Though you were my only friend Paradise Means sacrifice Paradise Means ending life I'd like to help you I'd like to hurt you I'd like to save you I'd like to hurt you
12.
The Watcher 05:15
South winds fill the air tonight A cold heart's lullaby An icy figure walking Through the city I called mine A stream of ghastly voices Fill the children's hearts with fear But no one dares to harm them For even evil left us here Hollow paradise A place of spirits and of ice The lights have long burned out But still the echoes give us light Trapped inside a hall With my portraits on the wall The faces stare right back As I hear the watcher's weary call Still unsure what brought me here I wander in the dust A whisper in the wasteland Carries through these fields of rust He calls a boy to follow him To a staircase up and down He says they're moving onward For they're sailing heaven bound I asked the watcher Where I'm going from this place His faceless smile expressed It's a journey to embrace I'm not wicked man But I fear the cells below He showed me to a door Where it leads I cannot know
13.
So much time I had to use What a life I had to choose I made mistakes, and I still do If I only Knew you then I'd do it all Over again Just with an angel by my side I didn't know what love could be There's so much left for you and me My heart is yours now No longer empty I was a broken, lonely soul But you can make me whole And you made a world of happiness from strife What was it like to save my life? It felt so good Now nothing's right Every word Can start a fight Feels like our love has burned out bright I still pretend Like we're okay Because I'm lost When you're away Even though you hurt me every day I'm sick of hurting I'm sick of fighting I'm sick getting up and trying To feel in touch again Maybe you saved me But you won't be The one to keep me going on It's best to move along I didn't know what this could be There's nothing here for you and me My heart is healing now No longer empty I was a broken, lonely soul But now my heart is whole Because you made a world of happiness from strife

Just leaving footprints in the sand I built with my own hands The shores of my despair I can't believe there's nothing more I'll struggle 'till I'm sore To find escape somewhere Nobody's supposed to feel like this One's chance to shine with so much risk It's a game of chances now And the odds aren't on my side Drowning, I scream for someone's aid No one can hear the noises fade I need the chance to rise From darkness, from oceans to skies I'd rise above the waves and storm And find help to reform The pattern that I'm in I built this cage around my life Gave my enemies a knife But I won't dare fall again Give me a chance for one last try Play the game or we all die The water here is rising We've all been down and out before So join me in the war Against the self-destructing Letting go of hopes divine Giving in to dreams of mine Spreading wings and taking flight When the past still lies in waste The future's something to embrace Moving forward, shining bright

about

From Oceans to Skies is an album about rising from darkness and ascending to a better place. It's about beating the odds, and taking control. Some songs represent the victory of this battle, and some represent the loss of control. It's all a journey, a brand new adventure.
