Track Name: We Are All Without Merit
This is, this is about co-existence
Someone teach us how to use these hearts we guard so close
We have failed you
Oh, God, unclench our fists
Oh, I’ve failed you
And I’ve failed everyone

We’ve throw away our love
We’ve abandoned second chances
We’ve cast aside our love
We’ve forgotten how to let go

Speak to our hearts
Teach us how to love again

Come back, come back to love
Come back to everything we said we’d stand for
When we were on our own
We have all turned away
We have all turned away

We are all accountable
For the crimes of our neglect
And I stand, I stand with the worst of thieves
How long before we trade these fists for open arms?

Come back, come back to love
Come back to everything we said we’d stand for
When we were on our own

Come back, come back to love
Come back to everything we said we’d stand for
When we were on our own
We have all turned away
We have all turned away

We are all without merit
No one can cast a stone
Not one
We are all without merit
No one can cast a stone
Not one
Track Name: The Gradual Decline, The Gentle Slope
Every step has led me here
But I took them on my own
Never knowing where I’d go
When all along this was my master plan
I just didn’t know it yet
I just didn’t know it yet

I was the architect
I tore your statues down
To make way for the bricks of my betrayal
I have laid them all
One by one

Oh, what was it that you ever saw in me?
I have been so wrong
How can I speak about mercy?
Why should I live to tell the tale
When all my words were false?

This was your down
This was your design
This was all your doing
This was your own design
Track Name: My Dark Passenger
This silence begs to question
Have I lost my bearings here?
Have I lost my bearings here?
And I don’t know where I’ve been going
But I know it’s wrong
Oh, I know I’m wrong

Don’t hold me responsible
For all my countless sins
‘cause I didn’t pull the triggers
But I dug the graves
Oh, and all the worst things are living inside me
I’m not the only one
I’m not the only one

Oh, captain, my captain
There’s a stowaway on board
Alert the watchmen
Sound the alarm

Cast out the passengers
Reclaim the vessel
We wait no longer for salvation here

I’ve been taking the long way home
I’ve been lost, oh, I have not kept my feet
All my schemes and my lies and my backsteps
Oh, there’s no telling where I will go

This one could be the end for me
Or a new beginning
I just haven’t decided yet

This one could be the end for me
Or a new beginning
I just haven’t decided
Oh, no, I haven’t decided

If this one will be the end for me
Or a new beginning
I just haven’t decided yet
Track Name: The Poor Servant of a Poor Master
Give me answers
To these questions
Give me anything but everything that I am finding here
I’ve been waiting here
For the rescue team
Someone please pull me out
These plans put on hold
They’re waiting in silence

I built this on my own
And I burnt this to the ground
I searched the embers for a sign
The smoke in my eyes
Is all but helpful as I sift through ashes and remnants
Looking for an exit

Don’t leave, don’t leave me here
Three days is far too long
Where are you now?
Don’t make me wait
Don’t make me wait until you find your bride

Come take my hand
I can’t do this on my own
Take me back to the beginning
Where this all came undone

I’ll unravel this mystery
I’ll set these threads ablaze
Take me back to the ashes

Burn it down

There’s gotta be something here
‘cause I’ve searched every inch
Turned over every stone
Where do I look next?

My God, my God
Even after the blaze
The foundation remains
Track Name: Small Gates
I had a dream that everything was perfect
But I cast those images like stones into the deep

I will not dream of other worlds
I won’t give up on this one

We’ve eaten our own
Devoured our young
Is anybody left to see what we’ve become?

Don’t send me into this darkness alone
Don’t make me face what I don’t know, what I don’t know
I remember what you told me to forget
While losing grasp of all that I held close

I am the one
I’ll carry the fire
I am the one
I’ll speak your name
When all other voices die

Everyone has been carried off by wolves

I feel the teeth tearing at my insides
But I won’t give up on this one

We are the ones
We’ll carry the fire
We are the ones
We’ll speak your name
When all other lights go out
Track Name: Narrow Roads
I’ve seen this all before
I’ll lead and they will follow
I have seen them, I have seen them all
I’ve seen this all before

We’ve seen this all before
We’ll lead and they will follow
And I have seen them all

Will we run from safety
Far from open arms?
Will we wait for something
Something other than this?
Track Name: Come Close
Oh, God, I hear the whispers in my ear
But I’d do anything for a discord aimed at me
Oh, God, the noise would be beautiful

Oh, make a noise
Let me hear anything
Make a noise
Please make a noise

Sing it back to me
Let me know I’m not alone
Sing it back to me
I’m not alone

So come close to me
Be the one who speaks into my ear

I need to hear your voice

I’ve been holding on
I’ve been holding out
For a reminder
And oh, my God, give me a sign
Let me know I’m not alone
Just a reminder

I thought I made it very clear
That I can’t do this on my own

Come close to me
Speak into my ear
Track Name: The Great Equalizer
And at the end of days
When words unwind
As mountains crash into the seas
I hope you find
The answer to this all
We leave behind
And fall onto the broken earth
As suns betray the sky
Track Name: Hell Is Empty; All the Devils Are Here
This is an eradication
All earth will not be saved
Hide all the guilty ones
Hide all the guilty ones
But we are the record books
Cast out the pages
We are the record books
Tear out your pages

Are we too far gone to save this place?
The gavel is in your hands
Take hold
How long can we bite our tongues and wait for change?
We have it within us
We have it within us to rewrite everything

Our time is running out
The end is upon us
There can be no compromise
Lay down your anger

Forgiveness
At any cost
For all
Track Name: They Have Taken With Them the World
Forgiveness
At any cost
For all
