Lyrics

Upon A Withered Cross

Written By: Avarice,Troy Bell

No more time now to waste in this end of all days
One more step in your grave
I can see truth in the fires in the sky

This heart in me starts to beat to be free
To be free, To be free
It feels once more chance to see

Take it away
The soul of our creed
One more day

This heart in me starts to beat to be free
To be free, To be free
It feels once more chance to see

Tears To Drown

Written By: Avarice,Troy Bell

Set aside all these empty feelings
That I can't hide
And break through this endless night

Something lies inside of the ruins
of what's meant to be
And I have found it out
As these thoughts become tears to drown

To bury this night in memory
These broken seams are memory

Something lies inside of the ruins
of what's meant to be
And I have found it out
As these thoughts become tears to drown

Rain
Burn the day
Break away
Burn the day

Reverie of Flames

Written By: Avarice,Troy Bell

In the darkest of my dreams full if endless suffering
I'm breaking through the depths of my own insecurities
In the confines of my mind, in this lonely space and time
I'm waiting for the world to fall apart before my eyes

A little hit to calm your mind, a little piece to calm your soul
One more day in here and I fear I could lose control

Set this nightmare to me that I couldn't just believe
I'm falling into this light we couldn't see
burning right through my reverie, my dream
I'm holding on to what I see

As the walls begin to fall on this grim reality
I'm holding back the lies I failed to heal while I was here

A little hit to calm your mind, a little piece to calm your soul
One more day in here and I fear I could lose control

Set this nightmare to me that I couldn't just believe
I'm falling into this light we couldn't see
burning right through my reverie, my dream
I'm holding on to what I see

City of Lies

Written By: Avarice,Troy Bell

I watch the days go by and I can't believe
Just how predictable my life can seem
This town is full of lies and no one to say
There's nothing here and we've just got to get away

Today is the day we fight
Tomorrow our sun will shine again
Our past is what's left behind
Tomorrow our sun will shine again

So let there be a life with no good times
So let us live like we've been raised in lies
Keep all to ourselves and let boredom rise
This neighbourhood is where our thoughts still lie
These years have got us trapped and forced us to hide
From what we feared and what we've left in pride
This town is full of life and mine's just passed me by

Today is the day we fight
Tomorrow our sun will shine again
Our past is what's left behind
Tomorrow our sun will shine again
