Firstly, I lost what was given in good conscience
Thought I desired to not feel the air
I was breathing so hard that I thought it was all dead
The snap disconnect of the mind and the head
Thought it useful to ground in what colour I saw
But the meadow of life bled and started to thaw so I

Cautious, I turned around and saw the forces
They claimed me and shouted
Aware of my process
I stepped in the pool of the ceiling
It welcomed my resting but kicked me at dawn

Pining away in the castle broken but the
Bolted on propeller stays
Spinning away in the base of the castle corner
Keeping me up but

Track Name: The Apocalypse
I’m walking down the street
There are people carrying towels and greeting me

Because a massive meteor crashed in the city
It was made of ice so the water was made
Part of it was rock so it made loads of sand
Now’s there’s a beach and half the population is dead

We take this opportunity
Amidst the chaos we are all alive and living free
Now the sun is setting soon
Warm reflections suggesting that
We will all freeze under the moon

And there is scrambling and screaming and a fire is built
Shows of remorse and a sense of the guilt
And all the animals of night come and prey and alight
How’s the human population now surviving the night

Dawn arrives and a scene is seen
Blood in the puddles and a sense of catastrophe
Cheering crowds of the people there
Wielding the spears and dancing with some of the bears

Now the sun is gaining height
And the people understand that everything’s all right

All is silent on the shore
Track Name: Bears, Boars & the Vixen
I say we drop the metaphors and the tasteful lyrical painting
I need to be blunt so I can express
My late teen years are fading
I’ve spent seven years waiting
Projecting emotional states into music
I’ve faced no abuse except the passive kind
Ingesting media until my senses were blind
I’m bringing back the past and learning from my old tracks
But socially fighting the habits I gathered
Aversion when I really want to connect
And even if I do I’m still different
Percentage of time I waste fighting my own mental illness
Tailored so I don’t complain
It doesn’t affect me enough to straight break down my brain
And to be honest I could spit for hours
But it is discordant and a waste of talent
So finally

Bears, the fights that I bring to the world
Grinding the loneliness down until I’m heard
Boars, the anger that’s tribal inside
It still remains though I’m too good at hiding it
The Vixen, the passion I keep
I want expression to cut your deceit

But as a man I still retain my limits
Unlike the Lord who told all it is finished
Track Name: Lum (Stripped Down)
See the small guiding light
Pulling up, guarding the knowledge to the fall
Here now, keep in sight
Freedom from all the creative ways to crawl
Track Name: Crawler (Stripped Down)
Birds are singing in their cages
Even then they refuse to be humbled
As the wind blows torn out pages
Don’t you feel out the path that you stumble

And as the shadows form around her perfect line of light
A mystery of gleaming timbers
Now swept away by waves of air into the coming night
As flocks of day are screaming over

She’s the bear that is within her skin
Rips through iron flesh effortlessly
She, portrayed in the light of the hill
Covered in gore, the waif that you see
Track Name: Aerial (Remaster)
I am in the wind
Temporal slips through my
Flame into the up
Consciousness matter

Momentum enough
I've grown wings have I
Blown up into ash
Masterful
