Track Name: Live Together, Die Alone
Unleashed!

Empathy regressing on a daily basis
Walking in circles hiding second faces
As Jacob said, it only ends once
With thoughts as bullets, with words as guns

Chains and cages, a common birthright
We pulled the plug still we refuse to fight
& as it crumbles, humanity's throne
We live together, we die alone
Track Name: In Chains
you live your life like it's yours to lead
but do you question authority?
values reduced to a pile of ashes
your dream consists of paying bills and taxes

cuz all we say, all we hear, all we do's in vain
in the end we all live like dogs in chains

I am in chains, set myself free
like the sky, above me
I wanna reach the stars, in front of me
I am in chains, set myself free

don't you think there is more you were born for
than being one of the pawns in this price war?
woven into this emotional exchange rate
I burnout, I burnout

and every day, the pain, it is numbing
they say my body's a temple but its foundations are crumbling

I am in chains, set myself free
like the sky, above me
I wanna reach the stars, in front of me
I am in chains, set myself free

Break free
Track Name: Chapters
does the truth really make you happy? might be utopian fallacy
do lies really change the outcome or is this the price we pay?
as i skip through the chapters of our lives i fail to see
the flame that once made you my bliss and my tragedy
this is a swansong for truth and integrity
this is a burial of hopes and dreams

clarity strikes when the last tears run dry
clarity..

I started to count the chapters
each letter's supposed to be something special
I started to count the chapters..

in this book that we call our life we fail to see
that each word we write into it cannot be erased
as i read through the chapters, burned passages & broken oaths
i begin to realize that these flames will consume us both
this is a eulogy for love and emotions
this is the vow that will seal our demise
this is the needle that wrote your name in my heart
this is the part where the author dies

nothing's ever built to last
everything falls down

I started to count the chapters
each letter's supposed to be something special
I started to count the chapters
each letter's supposed to be something special
Track Name: When The End Is Nigh..
Broken, sent to the gallows
Will we find a way to break out of the sound
Forsaken, caught in a stream of tears
As we tear down the pillars of creation

Shot to the heart, I cannot bear the sight
Brains disconnecting as life turns black & white
I will no longer be a part of this game

When this prophecy turns to reality
We lead this race into the arms of damnation
& when the end is nigh
I will, I will pray for salvation
I will pray for salvation!

I'm starting to realize these tears are turning red
& I'm not the only one who sees this coming to an end
am I able to forget the hell we created

Broken, sent to the gallows
Will we find a way to break out of the sound
Forsaken, caught in a stream of tears
As we tear down the pillars of creation

Headfirst through the gates of shame we scream at the sun
For years we fucked this world, it can't be undone
& when our eyes behold the start of the end
Only then will we understand it's too late to repent

I'm starting to realize these tears are turning red
& I'm not the only one who sees this coming to an end
am I able to forget the hell we created
Track Name: ..Pray For Salvation
Tears are running down the floor of shame
I realize my past
I realize the funeral of my future
I realize that my fears have already died

Stabbed by hopes & thoughts
Thoughts full of lies
Lies denying reality
& there's nothing that I could say, nothing to wish
Prophecy is reality

& my tears are falling down to the floor
& I can't stand up or say that I'm just an individual
Can't say that I will believe in something that
Is so far away

It's cold & I don't even know how I got here
Will my life set me free
Free from what I'm used to be
Or should this be the end of what I am

& my tears are falling down to the floor
& I can't stand up or say that I'm just an individual
Can't say that I will believe in something that
Is so far away

Stabbed by hopes & thoughts
Thoughts full of lies
Lies denying reality
& there's nothing that I could say, nothing to wish
Prophecy is reality
Track Name: Cloudwalker
This story ends before its birth, this crisis will swallow us whole
Arranged like pawns on the board they let our minds decay
We follow blindly as we search for a shallow grave

Ripped apart & torn to pieces, spat out through their golden teeth
Like cogs in a flawed system we spin to the sound of marching feet

Walk in the clouds, walk in the clouds
Will we ever find the strength to sever the ties that bind us to the ground
To bite the twisted tongue that’s wrapped around our necks?

Do not obey their conventions, we followed them for far too long
& as we use the pain to carry on let’s fuckin’ walk in the clouds

As we look down their throats we see their eyes stare back
Darkened vision through the fog they exhale, all senses starting to fade

Do not obey their conventions, we followed them for far too long
& as we use the pain to carry on let’s fuckin’ walk in the clouds

We are the cloudwalkers we will destroy your throne
We are the cloudwalkers we will destroy your throne

Pawns in this game we split apart to unite
We will knock down your king & rupture your bite

Walk in the clouds, walk in the clouds
Will we ever realize that this story starts after its death
Track Name: I Am Chaos
this world ends with you
but u still choose to be happy in ignorance
this dream fades with you
though this ignorance will fuel our suffering

the muscle in my chest is clenched like a fist

the mirror u face is the poison you take
in this plague-ridden world
where your whole life is fake

our own mirror-images are cutting our throats
& thoughts turn into words on which humanity chokes

wasting in the darkness of our lives
we reap the crops of our selfishness
this world ends with us
thought carnage
I am chaos incarnate
Track Name: As Silence Resonates
noises inside my head i cannot hide from
restless & furious, from the calm they spawn
& with them before my eyes reflections of the past
I lay there though it feels like walking on broken glass

if you don't sleep it's like you're never awake at all
this is a cycle, motherfucker u better prepare for your fall
I close my eyes & feel like i dissociate
trapped in my mind's cage as the silence resonates

escape from a sickness that's so pure
escape through reality's backdoor

do you know this feeling of isolation?
it's like you're drowning under these waves
do you know this feeling of desolation?
when all that's left is to believe in your fate

I can barely fathom what all of this is doing to me
the contrast, near and far, inside my body - set me free
have you ever seen yourself inside a world without sound
all these faces adding up to your mental bodycount

if you don't wake it's like your sanity fades
alone with your demons in all colors & shapes
I can but I can't but will I finally break the pattern
the resonance of silence is what makes my brain shatter

escape from a sickness that's so pure
escape through reality's backdoor

do you know this feeling of isolation?
it's like you're drowning under these waves
do you know this feeling of desolation?
when all that's left is to believe in your fate
Track Name: In Chains (Acoustic)
you live your life like it's yours to lead
but do you question authority?
values reduced to a pile of ashes
your dream consists of paying bills and taxes

cuz all we say, all we hear, all we do's in vain
in the end we all live like dogs in chains

I am in chains, set myself free
like the sky, above me
I wanna reach the stars, in front of me
I am in chains, set myself free

don't you think there is more you were born for
than being one of the pawns in this price war?
woven into this emotional exchange rate
I burnout, I burnout

and every day, the pain, it is numbing
they say my body's a temple but its foundations are crumbling

I am in chains, set myself free
like the sky, above me
I wanna reach the stars, in front of me
I am in chains, set myself free
