Track Name: Pilgrimage
Today, I'll walk in the sun
Today, I'm my father's son
I know my time's been and gone
Before any chance could come

They pass on the road below
Alive, they don't know what I know
The sun sends a shadow long
To dim all your days to come
Track Name: Impermanence
For you they stand in line
For you they're holding on
For you they bear a curse
Too late to change your mind

The more you learn, the less you know
It's easier to just let go
The more you hear, the less you trust
Everything they plan for us
The more you see, the less you feel
It's easier to fall in line
What you fail to understand
There will be a part for you to play

And they're giving away all we ever wanted
I'm wasting away the time that I've got left

In everything that you conceal
Turn away the ones you need
What you fail to understand

What do you think there'll be?
What do you think you'll see?
Tell me you think it's right
Could you get up and try?
Now everything has changed
When you were young there was so much more to live for
What do you think it's worth?
When you are gone and there's no one who'll remember

Hold on
Stay down
Hold on
Say the word
Hold on
Never say the word
Track Name: Evensong
Should this fall away
Leaving only you
I’ll have what I need
Should this fall away to you

But tell me when I’ll know
If I’ll ever see
What I came here for


I wait
You decide, I’ll wait
Move aside and break
So you have it all your way this time

Will you have it all your way this time?
Track Name: The Ashen Trail
We only want to burn it all
To find home
We're leaving here
Knowing we'll see the sky

Been this way one time before
Painted X's on the doors
If there was one thing I could tell me
It's that it won't be long

We only want to know the loss
To find hope
We only want to fall way here
To fly

You only want the lie
Because you're seeing things
Exactly as they are
Track Name: All The Same
All the same, ever changing
Always haunted, never free
What to say, what you wanted
To remain unfulfilled

Nothing in your words will reach me now
Leave this all to change
I’m waiting for the sound

Always here, ever distant
Feigned contentment worn as love
Measured words clear your conscience
Why am I here where I began?
To lose hope
Lose to time

We will not escape another lie
Pulled down by the weight
The more we fight
We will never feel the warmth of home
Track Name: Sleepwalker
Prey for the end
Watch for the signs
Knowing you’ve killed me
Closing your mind

See what you choose
Safety in lies
Numbed by the distance
Starving your heart

You’re switching off
But you’re not so far
From what will be
You’re not apart
From everything
Track Name: Awake
I can’t figure out
Why you brought me here
When you say we’re already gone
Dimmed and overcome

You leave me cold

Bleeding from your touch
Burning with your torch
You say we’re already gone
With the blood on your hands
You’re not that strong

Will you let me go?
Track Name: Carry The Light
How long
I’ve been waiting

Must be some way out of here
I can’t see
Must be somewhere out of here
I’d rather be

I’ll be aching
This time
Will you be with me?

Must be some way out of here
My best chance is if you’re there
Must be somewhere out of here
I can’t reach

Carry the light along with you
Do anything you want to do
Track Name: Redemption
All you love is over
Can you feel the pull of time?
As your body falters
Bring down your poisoned mind

Made small in your regret
Are you calling the end of the night yet?

All you give is stolen
Strip your name, deny your birth
Bent your back for nothing
Years gone, spent on a curse

Now lead us on
Now lead us on
Now lead us on
And then?
