Track Name: From Dust
Out here, alone, I have come to realize
In this bleak and foreboding landscape created to erase

Begin to see, have I become, is it to be

I haven't done what I meant to. How time was spent

My illusions of autonomy extricated reason
I have lived grasping for nothing, abiding by discourse

Shattered into dust: scattered upon us
Track Name: Awakening
Consumed with my lies: entrapments agonize
Impending fate rapes my eyes: awakening, I surmise

And now its all too clear - in isolation
This hectic life we live - in confinement

With every step I took, no will to change
I was moving backwards
Awakening: it was all in vain

But my dignity now, my eyes opened
My shortsightedness lost: awakening

The world we have created held little value
I gave up the soul of my existence
When I came to see, the lies had fallen apart
I have seen what I’ve become - and wish to be no more.
Track Name: Fleeting Idols
Now gone - horrors converge
Reborn: disposition reworked
The futility of my work, all too late
Chasing the fleeting idols

Deserted land, tribulation, our collective realization

I sought which did not exist
Left me weak
Drowning in my apathy

Worn down to a blunt edge, coming to grasp my pointlessness
A life lost, closing walls come into view: reborn
Track Name: Abolition
The sun betrays my eyes

As I stand here, waiting to leave
drawing breath sharply, while the wind is searing
Piercing my skin
Left cracked and decaying wounds
That harden to form a callous crust
A careless thrust into an ice-laden nothingness

Before me stands the road
My anguish foreseen
Whistling forth my shadow fades
Until I have no door - I am abolished

Anguish foreseen, the burn of my extant scars
Lying alone, those days have gone, in sight my last trial

Taking my final breaths, drawn with no hesitation
Fading out into the closing stage upon this earth

On the horizon
A specter of a shadow
Put forth too soon to regain the life that was once
Forever to remain a specter

In time the Harvester will roam
