Track 3 of our first album. Instrumental version


Emanations of perception bent to the lens of fear.
Dimed by my need for perfection, entangled by my hunt for symmetry.
We strife for order, blind for the beauty concealed in the chaos.
I shape the lies to my taste,
brick by brick.

Mute the paradoxes of self deceit
Blur the shine of inner self
reject all contradictions.
Refuse my body, refuse my shadow.

With walls so thick
Reaching for the sky
To hold the power of a dying sun inside
I build this walls ‘o so high
To hide inner core of sel f In witch the I reside.
Until it cracks, my shedding skin…peel it all away,

A straw in the flames, we are prey.
Pray. In search for salvation we expire. But a fuel for it’s fire.
Amidst the flames of truth, a second of clarity,
a revelation in defeat …that death is a certainty
