Track Name: The Beast
[Riley Garrett]
Day after day
I am walking away
From the man I used to be

Line after line
I destroy my own shrine
Of what I used to believe

No place to hide
As our ethics collide
Sanity pushed to the side

Always in fear
I know he's near

[Justin Smith & Riley Garrett]
The beast will appear

[Riley Garrett]
Night after night
Losing my appetite
For what I used to enjoy

Time after time
As I choke on this lime
Colours fade to grey

Push through the pain
Just have to maintain
Through the ends of my disdain

It grows from within
I'm pale and thin

[Justin Smith & Riley Garrett]
The beast begins to grin

[Justin Guitar Solo]

[Justin Smith]
And now
The glass shatters from abyss
Shards fall to waves of time
As dreams become amiss

And now
Should I see you fall from grace
I'd sacrifice my honor
And the beast shall take my place

Lyrics by Riley Garrett, Justin Smith, and (redacted)
Track Name: The Venetian
[Justin]
See through your masquerade
Petty words and your crusade
Your life, grows stale [Riley, Ryan]
The burden rests on those who fail

My sacrifice, does this suffice
Soulless men like blinded mice
You play the piper, pimp and whore
Who sheds his blood in lonely war

[Justin, Riley, Kyle Ryan]
You roll
The die
Til they
comply

You roll
The die
Til they
comply

[Justin]
See through your masquerade
Petty words and your crusade
Your life, grows stale [Riley, Ryan]
The burden rests on those who fail

I pity those who lie in wait
Who hide from cause of coming fate
Burn all bridges in due time
The piper falls from god to grime

[Justin, Riley, Kyle Ryan]
You roll
They die
Til you
comply

You roll
They die
Til you
comply

[Justin, Riley]
Feed your madness
Feed your beast
Feed your madness
Feed your beast


[Justin, Riley, w/ Kyle and Justin guitar harmony]
No price can pay times vengeance
And soon it comes for you
No price can pay times vengeance
and soon it comes for you

Lyrics by Justin Smith
Track Name: Speed Of Sound
[Riley Garrett]
Lost
In a daydream
Never thought I'd see
Venetian red

Watching
The sun beam
Didn't look to see
What was up ahead

[Kyle King w/ Riley & Justin Backing]
At the speed of sound
Lock the brakes, and spin the wheel round
At the speed of sound
Losing control, we're gonna fall
And head straight for the ground

[Riley Garrett]
Out
Of control now
Hoping that this chaos
Will soon cease

Rolling
Over
Hope I get through this mess
In one piece

[Kyle King w/ Riley & Justin Backing]
At the speed of sound
Lock the brakes, and spin the wheel round
At the speed of sound
Losing control, we're gonna fall
And head straight for the ground

[Justin Guitar Solo]

[Riley Garrett]
And as I wake
Disoriented
Played by the hand
I was presented

Could spiral downward
Instead I turn around
Choose to move forward
At the speed of
Sound

[Kyle King w/ Riley & Justin Backing]
At the speed of sound
Lock the brakes, and spin the wheel round
At the speed of sound
Losing control, we're gonna fall
And head straight for the ground

Lyrics by Riley Garrett and Kyle King
Track Name: Shockwave
[Justin]
Shift the paradigm
Words shatter illusion
Of minds in disarray

A shockwave to the system
Malice to her mind
Sanity tugging at the fray

[Justin and Riley w/ Kyle backing]
Petulance, my darling
Falls to the darkness calling
Ignorance, your virtue
To the beast who consumes you

[Justin]
A beautiful silence
in sunken disbelief
To who you will become

My touch and thus my love
All I could submit
The flame itself is numb

[Justin and Riley w/ Kyle backing]
Petulance, my darling
Falls to the darkness calling
Ignorance, your virtue
To the beast who consumes you

[Justin Guitar Solo]

[Justin and Riley w/ Kyle backing]
Petulance, my darling
Falls to the darkness calling
Ignorance, your virtue
To the beast who consumes you

Lyrics by Justin Smith
Track Name: Push
[Riley Garrett]
Don't be
The last thing
That you wanted

When your crutch
Turns out to be
Actually
The thorn in your side

Don't see
The problem
As it is

Until it's been
Illustrated
In front of your eyes

[Kyle Guitar Solo]

[Kyle King & Justin Smith]
How are we
To push ahead
If all in all
Is to extend?

[Riley Bass Solo]

How are we
To push ahead
If all in all
Is to extend?

[Justin Guitar Solo]

[Riley Garrett, Kyle King, & Justin Smith]
Lost in
Time spent

[Kyle King & Justin Smith]
No matter how
We push ahead
All in all
Comes to an end.

Lyrics by Riley Garrett
Track Name: Claire 3: Redemption
[Justin]
Golden Hill, July’s eve
We rest on the skyline
Only arms to keep us warm
Your gaze, so divine

With this ruthless storm approaching
No rain could tame this flame
Lay waste to their injustice
And conquer, our own game

[Justin w/ Riley Backing]
The darkest days, and darker nights
Has revealed to me, your brighter lights
Glowing path, that guides me home

Once filled with hate, discarded fate
I stand before the cries of late
To take a stand, and soon your hand

[Justin]
Though actions I regret
Each word, I can’t repent
From depths of our own heartache
We banished our descent

Each step grows ever gruelling
Should your bones finally break
I’d carry you to freedom
On the backs of our mistakes

[Justin w/ Riley backing]
The darkest days, and darker nights
Has revealed to me, your brighter lights
Glowing path, that guides me home

Once filled with hate, discarded fate
I stand before the cries of late
To take a stand, and soon your hand

[Justin w/ Riley and Kyle backing]
How I wish I could move on
But I’ve been holding on for far too long
How I wish I could move on
But I’ve been holding on for far too long

[Kyle Guitar Solo]
[Tempo change and Justin Guitar Solo]

How I wish I could move on
But I’ve been holding on for far too long
How I wish I could move on
But I’ve been holding on for far too long

Long
Far too long,
Far too long,
Far too long

Lyrics by Justin Smith
Track Name: Distress
[Justin and Kyle]
Your fantasies and prophecies
Give way to our dichotomy
I fall, in line
Worship the false divine

This misery, my deity
Empty life consuming me
I fall, in place
Colour draining from my face

[Kyle w/ Riley & Justin Backing]
As it flies overhead
Conform to distress
and bring me the death of man
And his honor
shining in the knight like a suit of armor

[Justin and Kyle]
Embracing pain brought by this flame
I’d sacrifice my soul to fame
My will, to be
I’ve let my morals free

Watch angels fall from eternity
They pay the price for blasphemy
Their god, dethroned
Blood where the river flows

[Kyle w/ Riley & Justin Backing]
As it flies overhead
Conform to distress
and bring me the death of man
And his honor
shining in the knight like a suit of armor

[Justin Guitar Solo w/ Kyle Harmony]
Lyrics by Kyle King and Justin Smith
Track Name: Without You
[Riley Garrett]
Without you I'm helpless
Without you I'm lost
Without you I'm empty
Without you I'm lost

Please don't walk don't walk away from me
I'm dependent on your company
I'd rather die than be alone
and I wonder why she won't answer her phone
(i wonder why she won't answer her phone)

Without you I'm helpless
Without you I'm lost
Without you I'm empty
Without you I'm lost


I feed this beast
Though I know, it won't bring me peace
I feed this beast again
Hope it doesn't bite me, I
Hope it doesn't bite me in the end

Lyrics by Riley Garrett
Track Name: The Prophet and the Profiteer
[Justin]
The sins of the father
Negligence to which we curse
Heresy
has bounded him to his thorn'd crown

Abandonment
Fill the void which tears within
Silence from the lamb
I’ll use your voice as mine

[Riley and Kyle]
Walls crumble down
Next to this confession
Abide to drown
As I ask this question

Why does it matter
This pain persists
Why does it matter
I can't resist

[Justin]
Hypocrisy
Preaching peace to helpless pawns
Profitier a loss of life
As you suspend your disbelief

Hypocrisy
I blame thee for the bloodshed
Blessing bombs, for your gain
Shame to the scum of earth

[Riley and Kyle]
Walls crumble down
Next to this confession
Abide to drown
As I ask this question

Why does it matter
This pain persists
Why does it matter
I can't resist

[Justin, Kyle, and Riley]
Without You I’m Helpless
Without You I’m Lost
Without You I’m Empty
Without You I’m Lost


I’ll Feed This Beast [Justin and Ryan]

[Justin]
Your prayers will go unanswered
Your shallow faith devoid
Your actions go unnoticed
To an unforgiving void

No saviour on the horizon
Like an ever empty creche
And while you worship stardust
You neglect your brethren’s flesh

[Kyle]
I neglect my brethren's flesh

[Justin]
Abide to drown, forgo uncertainty
Reclaim your throne
Abide to drown, forgo uncertainty
Reclaim your throne

Lyrics by Justin Smith and Riley Garrett
Track Name: To the Flame
[Justin w/ Riley Backing]
I looked out my window
Like days we’ve spent before
A calm that permeates
Still waves on silent shore

No march in solitude
No shelter from the wake
Her voice all that remains
As mine begins to break

Yet in my dreams I hold you
In those dreams we rise
Does the fire burn eternal
Under your resting eyes

The beast has grown passive
His world has grown stale
The window starts to crack
As rain turns to hail

And I need for you to stay
To breath for one more day
I need for you to stay
To walk, for one more day

The sun has died tonight
And you’ve left me growing cold
This truth is one I hold
Some truths best left untold

[Justin, Riley, with Kyle backings in brackets]
Our dreams turn tragedies (The sun has died tonight)
Your choice, yet I’m to blame (And you’ve left me growing cold)
This dark weighs my conscience (this truth is one I hold)
Til I cast you, to the flame
