The turn of treason
Answering to those who called
Exiled to obscurity
Restoring ourselves
Back to a cherished state
Re-Creating paths leading escape

This air once reclined to freeze
Washing up inanimate disease
Ruins now holding us down
Fossilized and discrete

Rise above the conspire
Return to the start of this life

Losing the final fight for vengeance
Left without strength to carry on
I'm buried under the eye
With my soul still in sight
Hours spent scratching at walls
They're caving in
Climbing step by step escaping this fucking disease

An ambience fills the perimeter
The deceased know it's here

Gears start turning unlocking new air
The destruction long forgotten is finally near
I've wasted all this time suffering until end
Once this is through my violence won't comprehend

Rise above the conspire and return to the start of this life
This isn't living
We're all parted from our own minds
Blinded so easily
They can't see what's right

Infiltrate the decision that caused this to begin
Recommence mayhem but this time on them
Hope was within the burning we just needed to crawl through the smoke
