Track Name: An Animalistic Duet
What’s the difference between right and wrong,
It’s just a matter of perspective,
remember that when you’re feeling receptive.

Shades of gray have brought conflicts before,
subjects that we all tend to ignore.
But they’ll never go away,
they’ll just wear us down day after day..

As I awake to the sound of desperation on your lips,
Now I find myself laying in regret,
curse this primal sentiment.
A memory I can’t forget,
this animalistic duet.

I am broken; feel defeated.
All my sins repeated, all my sins repeated.

But I can’t seem to stop myself,
this cycle repeats and depletes.
A spark of lust ignites in us,
this cycle depletes and defeats.

Burn this pyre of carnal desire.
I am a pyre of carnal desires
So set me ablaze.

I am broken; feel defeated.
All my sins repeated, all my sins repeated.
I have grown weak and addicted,
I feel so conflicted, I feel so conflicted.

All that I regret, lays between the sheets.
This is where our bodies come undone
you are not the one, will things ever change?

I’d rather wait till the right one comes along.
I’d rather wait for love.
Track Name: In Solitude
I haven’t been the same in the past few years,
everything I’ve held close to my heart has disappeared.
It’s been a struggle to stay sane, through the misery and pain.
I’ve grown unfamiliar, I’ve grown unfamiliar.
I’m losing sight of everything I once believed in,
I've been struggling to find myself.
I’ve spent every waking moment,
wondering “when will this end?”
Our knowledge has made us cynical.
Our regrets hard & unkind.
We think too much and feel nothing at all,
But I dying to feel alive again..
Is it not enough that I just want a change to the positive?
I’ve been bathing in my solitude so long
that I’m drowning on a surface I can’t perceive
I’m abnegating from the one thing that I love
and it’s just too much to bare.
I feel so intangible.
You’ve got to lose it all,
to build up hope
Track Name: Relapse
At times I question my own beliefs,
the concept of consciousness
is the reason I lose sleep.
These thoughts of mine, they’ll never change.
The constant combination of fear & fascination,
will never leave my mind at rest.
Tell me now, what good is faith without observation?

What if we’re not extraordinary and all of this temporary?

If only I could find the reason why our eager hearts are beating,
then maybe I can find the clarity I’ve been searching for…

I toss and turn and lay awake and hope one day that things will change,
I’m struggling for sanity searching for some certainty.

If only I could find the reason why our eager hearts are beating,
then maybe I can find the clarity I’ve been searching for…

I have a constant fear that we die alone and
it’s become so clear it’s embedded in my bones.
It’s this constant fear that eternity is a fantasy
where we go from here we will never know.
Track Name: Receiving Satellites (Acoustic)
I tried to set myself apart, I just can't let myself keep letting you down.
I have this fear that I'll fall from your grace again, won't you catch me though I can't make amends, won't you compromise?

I'm receiving signs from satellites, they'll be my guide so I won't stray.
Can't you see I'm trying here? I'm trying not to lose my place.
Temptation calls to me, I've done some awful things.
Won't you compromise, won't you compromise!?

Receiving signs from satellites, they'll be my guide so I won't stray.
Tell me when I'm at the line that meets the loss, just tell me when I've gone too far, so I won't stray away.

I'm losing hope, I'm losing sleep, how could I stray so carelessly.
As I look towards a new direction as we have many times before,
I know we can't go wrong, just look me in the eye and tell me where to go.

I'm receiving signs from satellites, they'll be my guide so I won't stray.
Tell me when I'm at the line that meets the loss, tell me when I've gone too far, so I won't stray away.

My heart, my hands have been surrendered to you and I trust in the choices I've made, though my doubts heavy but begin to rise I ask that you lead me to your grace.
