Track Name: Mirrors feat. Chad Ruhlig
Once upon a time I spoke of a tale of a middle aged man.
His dreams were being torn down. He seemed to lose his way.
Seemed to lose his way.

Those trees never blew so cold, as he walked these one-way streets.
He never found his heart; only makes his vision perfectly clear.
Why must this world be so blind? Blind.

His mind is filled with a positive message.
But you judge him by his artistic ways.
Underneath the skyline lies a kid with a greater passion.
Anymore than one could see straight from the pupil of his eye.

You’re never too young, you’re never too old to follow your dreams.
Everything you are is everything you can be.
Never think your dreams are not realistic.

These thoughts plague my mind. Day in and day out.
I will not be a victim so a mind of corrupted thoughts this time (GET UP).
When the world has given up we will be the ones to carry you.

You’re never too young; you’re never too old to follow your dreams.
Everything you are is everything you can be.
Never think your dreams are not realistic.

Oh wait, that man was me.
Track Name: Protector
I cannot sleep. My fear keeps me awake.
Relentless enemies want to take my family away from me,
but I am not afraid of them.
I am afraid to fail, to not protect them, to shield my brothers and sisters from evil.
I lie awake, ready to fight, ready to show my might.
(Protector)
Ready to die.

From the darkness I will strike
my blade shows its beauty in the night
This family will receive the crimson surprise that I bring
But a man stands in my path and he spoke with a vengeance.

Hello again enemy, I have waited for this day
training with my father's spear
remembering the scars you left here.
You have no right to decide who lives and dies
I’ve earned this day and I will stay to the end, until there's nothing left.
To the end until there’s nothing left.
Until there’s nothing left of you.
Track Name: Decade
What made you think I ever wanted you to bring me down?
Try and try and try and try
My rage is building like a hurricane

One last question before I let you follow through with your actions:
how is it so easy for you to discard ten years of time invested truths?
Believe in what you want, but I never expected this from you.

This is my fate. No one else will write it for me.
Recovering from my falls, and faults of all degrees.
In the end I know tribulation stems from my own hand.
But that’s the realization that makes me who I am.

Pick yourself up. The time to rise is closer than you think.
Your time is closer than you think.

And I will stand among the giants that sing this song to me.

This is my fate. No one else will write it for me.
Recovering from my falls, and faults of all degrees.
In the end I know tribulation stems from my own hand.
But that’s the realization…

I will no longer walk the earth with this shadow of what I used to be.
I see my struggles ahead, and when I reach that barricade I will push through.

No more nights where I lie away as a comatose victim.
Thinking about the times I spent sick to my stomach and asking myself why.
Track Name: Crossroads
Look the other way they say,
Use these lies to cover your face.
Your deception is your execution.
Your deception is your execution.
Look the other way they say,
Use these lies to cover your face.
Your deception is your execution.
Your deception is your execution.

You’re a fake, a blind man could read what you have on display.
You’re a plague, you know the cure but you choose to look away.

Sell your filth to the highest bidder
Accept your prize and what do you receive:
A closed box, a closed mind
A thousand locks but not one key
Show vigilance to these cowards
Break through their skin
There’s a weak spot in their armor
One shot in a world so dim

You soldier of destruction with your poor choice of targets
I will never let you in, I will never let you win

Look the other way they say,
Use these lies to cover your face.
Your deception is your execution.
Your deception is your execution.

I see you pray on the weak
Present your shallow humility
I won’t let you take one more step

You’re a plague, you’re a fake, and I won’t let you take one more step.
Track Name: Derailed
There is never an end, but what you believe is what you’ll see.

And I’ll stay forever stuck on my throne.
I told you to shut the door and leave me alone.
I don’t want to help myself, I just want to be alone.
And rot inside my home.
This mind was supposed to help me through it all.
How did it become a prison?
Dead end thoughts and ideas, you really think you’re immune to this?

And we’ll let it fester (let it fester)
Until you can’t handle any more of it.
A mind without restraint is like a derailed train.
It’s gonna crash and burn until you finally learn.
You’ll finally learn that beast inside is you.

With the strength of one million arms holding you down in defeat (I’ve been there before), you must maintain control of yourself so you don’t lose sight of who you really are.

I am the beast, that hides within the shadows.
Within the shadows, the shadows of your mind.
I am the beast, that hides within the shadows,
WITHIN THE SHADOWS

I am the beast, that hides within the shadows of your mind.
And I have come to forcefully take everything away,
For your mistake of not keeping me at bay.
I am in everyone, I am in everyone.
Be afraid, the beast hides within you and me.
