Bogdweller 02:57
I found you drowning in the bog But you don’t want to breathe I heard you say you loathe the mud Why’s it caked up on your palms? You let all your fires die But the sludge won’t snuff mine I fled before it quaked below You leach off all those not so wise Embedded Embedded in the mire Bogdweller Isolated state of mind Quit dwelling and get on Pursue the Light Seek out your desires Perspective will save your life Embedded Embedded in the mire Bogdweller The mud will take your life

Billions of stars I see Light years older than ours As destiny sets its course The universe unleashes its powers Life percolates across the infinite stretch Far out of our reach, we think we’re too blind to see Cosmic throne I crack the sky above So we can open our minds The glass ceiling will fall Knock down the walls that divide To evolve and survive Our lungs fail to breathe if we choke and retreat Cosmic throne Post biological form The great filter is here Time to explore Infinite beyond (Solo Michaud) Cosmic throne Space arms race Will we claim? Cosmic throne

Witch City 04:22
Blinded trust Spreads fear to the masses Fanning the flames until The darkness passes Casting stones, breaking necks Mass hysterics fuel the elects You blame and shame the witches Victims of the city (Burn the witch) You blame and shame the witches In the city A feud still grows, a scapegoat Chosen to displace throws Casting stones, breaking necks Mass hysterics fuel the elects You blame and shame the witches Victims of the city (Burn the witch) You blame and shame the witches in the city (Solo Michaud) (Solo Meehan) Breaking bones, casting hex Mass hysterics burn the witch You blame and shame the witches Victims of the city (Burn the witch) You blame and shame the witches In the city You blame (Blame) You blame (Blame) They’ll hang the man right next to you Before long you’ll be on trial Blame the witch Shame the witch Hang the witch

Reverdir 04:04
The hands I shake feel so cold Daily headlines getting old Everyone’s throwing sand and poking fires they don’t understand Let’s ground ourselves and self-medicate I turn grey to green, my earthly quarantine Burning one down while the world burns around me I return to green, worship the grass and trees Tearing one down, while the world burns Fire reflects from our eyes Nothing but spirit left to fight They’ll try to see us fall, in numbers misery calls Come and melt away with me I turn grey to green, my earthly quarantine Burning one down while the world burns around me I return to green, worship the grass and trees Tearing one down, while the world burns Burn Burn it down Embrace the warmth that grows around you Breathe it in (Solo Meehan) I turn grey to green, my earthly quarantine Burning one down while the world burns around me I return to green, worship the grass and trees Tearing one down, while the world burns (Solo Michaud)

Crushed 01:55
Crushed as the wave crashes over me Somebody save me from the sea Gasping for breath, the ocean scares me half to death When did I drift so far away? You already had it all But you couldn’t see (Solo Michaud) (Solo Meehan) Grasping my chest, the ocean rips me from the rest How did I drift so far away? You already had it all But you couldn’t see You already had it all Crushed by the weight of the waves Until there’s nothing left to save Crushing tides Leaving me Half alive

Petrichor 03:48
Life will choke you and hold you down This is no mistake It will take your home, take your pride And force the suffering in your face You have a choice To live or to die Light comes at a great price So take a breath and don’t think twice Rise, when you are lost focus your eye When you are lost you’ll find the Light, the secret fire in your mind Look death in the face and tell him that you will not die Life, life must destroy life to survive Go now, fight, there is no time Rain will clear Embrace the ride The search for meaning Drowns in the tide Rise, when you are lost focus your eye When you are lost you’ll find the Light, the secret fire in your mind Look death in the face and tell him that you will not die Go now, fight, there is no time Who am I to seize the great fruit When it could feed so many? No eternal truth to tell me what is right Just what is and what could be, so I cry (Solo Meehan) This won’t end This won’t end Now I have to choose, and so choose I will With honor and regret I choose to feed my pride Destroy fear and conquer We have got to rise

Baiting your life with lore Simulation fueled by chore Obstruct ideas once clear Fog sets on you Time creeps away uncured Your thoughts obscured Embrace it now and face yourself Hypnogenic, dream synthetic Hallucinate what you see Hypnogenic, synthetic Purge the weight and be free (Solo Donais) Break away from routine Relearn to live and breathe To know your own kind is to save your purpose A self insurgence Never felt so magnetic Trapped in the dream aesthetic Thought to be divine Reality is pantomime (Solo Michaud) (Solo Meehan) Hypnogenic, dream synthetic Hallucinate what you see Hypnogenic, synthetic Purge the weight and be free Hypnogenic Your life’s synthetic

Wendigo 04:49
There is peace, and the minds of men sleep An ancient evil slumbers that will eat human meat Angel of the Earth not of some demon void Here to claim it’s vengeance of what’s been destroyed Hateful nightmare To beg for despair Never forget That we should have never asked for this (Solo Michaud) The monster hunts its spiritual kin Those driven by endless hunger won’t win Cling to those with still clean hands Hell overflows with ignorance Hateful nightmare To beg for despair Never forget That we should have never asked for this Wendigo is coming to protect the Earth Wipe out her vile children to whom she gave birth Windigo is coming Mother Earth wants you dead

Born a slave no matter the color We carry mistakes on our backs As ghosts of a bankrupt soul, our debt has never repaid Don’t ask why All hail the eye The gaze which none can escape All hail the eye I am no slave The stars in our eyes are leading Leading us astray Towards the depths of desire, we crawl and perspire Reaching desperately to the sky All hail the eye The gaze which none can escape All hail the eye I am no slave All hail the eye The gaze which none can escape All hail the eye I am no slave As we walk through this hell We all stumble into dark As we sink further in We are swallowed by sand As we fall hand in hand Lost, searching for the sun Light draws in from decay Pyramid’s eye will guide the way (Solo Michaud) Towards the depths of desire We crawl and perspire Not knowing what we see Not seeing what we know Turn the light to the eye And it remains a dream All hail the eye Pyramids and eyes By design Not divine Lord of Light Artificial and bright Pyramid’s eye
