Track Name: Eastern Skies
Looking back at what once was
Homes and hardships was the good life

We were all as one, held together by trust
Only to be broken apart
Stripped from our armour, no hope now
Brace for the cold

Our time is now and here
To help make a difference in this world
There's no hope of change
Without sacrifice

These days unfold into weeks
We must excel ourselves and progress
We are the key to the door
We must progress, never degress
For we are the key

My warmth has gone with the eastern skies
No one to shine their light into these lonely nights
Separated by borders, and they are too high to climb

If we are to find a common ground
Where we can share our thoughts and share our sounds
These walls must be shattered
Torn down to the ground

We can pursue ambitions of the brightest days
Take my hand to bridge this feeling
We can unite a crown worn by all
This world is ours

My warmth has gone with the eastern skies
No one to shine their light into these lonely nights
Separated by borders, and they are too high to climb

As winter strips my shelter, I'm left unearthed to the bitter cold
Take my hands, lead me somewhere I can see the sky
Track Name: Leo (Ft. Richard Lardner of Odessa)
After all these years I'm struggling to see the brighter side
When every day another failure is the footprint I leave
I will remain the lion at heart

Coming to terms with a force outside my control
This life right now is my only constant
And I will defend it with everything I am
And everything I have inside

So as you turn and run from me
I just want you to see

I'm already far from here
I left you to choke while you refuse to hear
Only with compassion can you finally breathe

Living for that GBP must make you feel so poor

I'm trying to find some common ground
But your ignorance keeps you bound
I'm so let down
I'm so let down

But I remain the lion

After all these years I'm struggling to see the brighter side
When every day another failure is the footprint I leave
I will remain the lion at heart

Coming to terms with a force outside my control
This life right now is my only constant
And I will defend it with everything I am
I remain the lion

Strong and undefeated

A life ruled by the weight of your wallet is no life at all

But I remain the lion at heart
(Will I remain the lion at heart?)
Track Name: Stronghold
We've all got our stronghold
A place where we can feel safe
Those unforgettable memories

We can hold close and never forget
Let them inside; those who truly care
They'll find hope you've lost

I'll cut the cord, pave the path
So we can savour these days
That make us who we truly are
Scream it to them all;
'My world is golden'

These motives pull
me through
For reasons I'll never know
Feeling the struggle of these inflictions
They send me in wrong directions
But I'll keep on searching

We can hold close and never forget
Let them inside; those who truly care

Overcoming of myself

It seems some days are gone in a heartbeat
Others seem to just stick and stay
But I'll endure these struggles
Just to feel the sun on my face

My world is golden
Track Name: Ante Meridian
"From the bits and pieces i've put together
you know from what you told me about your family
~your Mother and your Dad,
and I know You've got your problems with the church too,
but there's some kind of bigger thing we can all appreciate,
and it sounds like you don't mind calling it God,
but when you forgive, you love"
Track Name: Pale Shades
I gave everything
Held out in open palms
These blossoms devoured
But they always remain

My eyes are heavy
In the dead of the night
Pacing empty streets of silence
This was once a forest of life

I showed you the branches
Of my willow heart
You wrenched it open exposing the roots
A reminder forever engraved

That day you hid under the dirt
When you shut your eyes to the light we shared
I found a strength inside

These cold hands wait for the warmth
Of your last reassuring words

For the first time in my life
The sun has gone
Darker than ever before
But when the A.M. haze seems endless
Know the sun is only in waiting
Ready to shine, to bring a new morning, to bring everything to light

I close my eyes
But still I wake
I wait for time to stop

So far away
The echoes of my past begin to fade
I see the pale shades of morning
Track Name: State of Mind
My friend
You are hurting
I see the pain in your eyes
You walk hand in hand with a self demise

A constant fight between love and hatred
You fear this fight will be soon be lost
But this lesson learnt in time is now created

These paths we take may overlap
The things we learn will bring us closer
Destroy this divide between us

On days your heart looks to sink to the depths
But your eyes hold the chalice so you can raise your head
I hope you can see this light soon

Don't encourage their bad intentions
Fuck your reputation
Because you are the better man

With strength, grace of Gods
We can reignite each others hearts
Holding out a hand to you
I extend the promise

With strength, grace of Gods
We can reignite each others hearts
I extend the promise


And the wind will still carry you on
Through the storms that found you
Keeping you warm
I will be there too see you through

And the wind still carries you on
Light as a feather now
Free from this
Now you're whole

Everyone goes through their tribulations
It's time to pick yourself up and think

This is only a state of mind
So go on and save yourself
