Lyrics

Gravity Betrayer

Written By: Shon Mohsin

Higher than the highest high

Wake up in a daze
Let the morning shine through
Only simple lies
Are lies of points of view

Never back down
Never take a ride
When they come calling out
Don't you anesthetize

You gotta spit in the face of strangers
And when you satisfy the danger
Only then will you feel

[chorus]
Higher than the highest high
Above the Himalayas
You're floating in the crystal sky
You gravity betrayer

Now you're on the ground
The dirt around your hands
Stand up, clear your head
Formulate a plan to

Conquer the world
And name it kingdom fear
You'll never be the ruler, boy
Standing 'round here

You gotta spit in the face of strangers
And when you satisfy the danger
Only then will you feel

[chorus]

Is this all there is?
No point to reminisce
Call that Pied Piper
For some ecstasy or bliss

Are you afraid of this
This void, the freedom fits
Don't mistake holy water, boy
That's just piss

[chorus]

Turbulence

Written By: Shon Mohsin


For a shadow that lurks within this hollow tome
Wasting a tear in the chasm of time
A leaping charge escapes these winds
Climbing crevices and filling holes

[pre-chorus]
A fall just to see you
And that’s worth something
A plight to get to know you
And that’s worth something
Better than nothing
To be

[chorus]
Caught up in the turbulence
A shadow amongst the dissonance
What abjugates the absent mind
So
Do not force this nonchalance
We’re caught up in the turbulence
What discords the rhyme

Today these might be your dreams
Tomorrow will you dream them again?
Whatever tomorrow holds
Make it hold on to “remoiries”

[pre-chorus]
[chorus]

When the leviathan levitates the lackluster prose
I face the semblance of a single rose
So you may reflect

Apathy

Written By: Shon Mohsin

Well I'm waiting
With my hands tied back
And I'm wondering
Why this sudden attack

You seem a little bit bruised
I think you're feeling used
The signals that you send
Are warning of the end

Look at me
Feel me break
Letting distance
Blur your pain

[chorus]
Apathy in your eyes
Faith on faithless
Non-trusting mind

I see you shaking
Making circles with your feet
Sweat is breaking
Like you've been digging in the heat

I seem a little confused
It's so hard to lose
The signals that you send
Are warning of the end

Look at me
Feel me break
Letting distance
Blur your pain

[chorus]

If it's the same old story
I think that you should know
I am not here to apologize
But I had to see you go

I see
[chorus]
