Light flickers across the cracks in this floor I know these lines better than the ones on my own hands Climb these walls, until my fingernails all chip like paint- Flakes falling from the ceiling I’ve lost track of whether this clock tells me of blue skies or moonlight Here, you’d think reprieve would be preordained But currently, the stagnancy’s hard to endure I know I’m safe from harm, if I remain But security means nothing to me Anymore

Exit 04:36
Exit a battered doorframe Eyes strain through such radiant light And as they adapt, I take a step I inch forward We set forth below the afterglow In the same town, but with all of its bones exposed Why can’t I recognize this path? It’s all got a couple of layers peeled back Once green grass, now charred black Earth crackles under my step What have we learned, through all we’ve lost? Reaching for a second chance I swear that we’ll rebuild all that has fallen Concept of home defined by the scars that we wear Once were the days we had stable ground But now we’re left to reminisce amongst the wreckage I remember, I remember when It was us against the wall, in a familiar fashion When what you’re leaning on collapses, you learn what passion really is All the time spent underground, separated from the masses When your bed sheets turn to ashes, you learn where terror truly lives On the surface Finding ourselves through the depths of calamity And I thank you for being my reason to save myself I held your hand, but it was empty And I asked for just a single thing To share some shelter ‘til the weather passed I know that we could have outlasted our surroundings dwindling So why was it too much to ask? To take my side in this dichotomy To keep just a single thing intact? You dug yourself out while you buried me I’m still asking why Why was it too much to ask? Take my side in this dichotomy To keep just a single thing intact? You dug yourself out and buried me

As I continue down this road I don’t know anymore I’m haunted by this reality and memories from before And I need to stop thinking And I need to meet some form of life And I need a distraction from all of this Then I see a pillar of smoke I hear the commotion at the foot of the hill And it can’t hurt to learn what these people have to say for themselves

The Murrays 04:03
When the world came crashing down Law and order hit the ground We were left to fend for our own So we hit the open road Living only for today The dead had nothing much to say Now we're headed for a light That's in the city, rumored some are Still left alive This is how it all began Not with a whimper but a bang "You entered our camp in the dead of the night" "But I didn't mean to intrude" "How do I know I can trust you?" "We've got nothing left to lose" This is how it all began Not with a whimper I can't do this alone I can't do this alone I can't do this Alone, alone "So we will be with you until the end" "We've all lost something, but not all is lost" "Travel through Hell, we'll leave no stone unturned" "No man is an island anyway" This is how it all began Not with a whimper but a bang We're all looking for something in the nothingness left behind It got swept aside when it hit We're all searching for a purpose in a world that's been left to die And we must decide what that is Left behind Left to die

Tech Noir 03:17
I smell blood, a sort of premonition On my tongue, and I can taste the iron of My teeth grinding as my blood turns into dust Ghosts in my memories cause my mind to rust Shadows cast by the light that we chase Burn my soul into darkness, I cannot escape I should have, oh I should have- Trusted myself, I should have stayed away Trusted myself, I should have stayed away Plunging deeper into blackness Not all is lost, but what is left? I can’t seem to find stable ground Now the time has come to lay these demons to rest I don’t think havoc is quite strong enough a word “I want blood for all the loved ones I have lost Gone in a flash, all their bodies have turned to dust The empty graves I dug, no rest will they find I want an eye for the eyes that have left me blind Or maybe I am wrong” Too late to undo, the present we fell into A momentary lapse to coarser grain Enemies and friends are now the same And I condemn myself, I condemn myself I smell blood, a sort of premonition

93 North 03:47
Oh, we’re still pressing, in spite of weary legs We have our scar-marked hearts to thank, not our unscathed heads The heart said “cultivate,” the head said “fruitless chance” Walking the outskirts, appreciate the circumstance Now we move on for ourselves, and on our own accord Before the first one ever dropped, we knew what this was for Over scorching earth, we watched the skyline fall But not all hope is lost, I swear that we’ll rebuild it all Oh, it’s depressing, all these nepotists And anyone who thinks that “DIY” is a worthless acronym Your value’s worthless, inconsequential purpose You never bled, bled for anything We can’t let off this pace, with our backs to the past we embraced Breathing with greatened haste, and a pain that we smell and we taste Must push on and on, worse things will come No end within sight, no rest tonight “Oh heavens if you hear me, open and up and let me see What this place used to be” “What have we done? What have we done to this place?” Before the first one ever dropped, we knew what this was for You never bled for anything Over scorching earth, we watched the skyline fall You never bled for anything But not all hope is lost, I swear that We’ll rebuild it all, we’ll rebuild it all

Eyes ahead towards our fading redemption As our sanctuary is reduced to rubble before our eyes We fear what we can’t understand, soulless mechanisms Standing between us and our only hope, salvation Through this wormhole, we run Separated, but not divided But we’re spread so thin Now divided, but not yet conquered And as these tunnel walls cave in behind We have nothing more to give Approaching the surface, reaching our sought-after light And as we stood in the shadow of what we thought was a beacon We learned there was no shelter here, and something had awakened Waking from ageless sleep or seeing light for the first time There is no escape from this place set forth in this afterglow Fade black, as its talons tighten their grip Bones crack, consciousness is starting to slip It’s hopeless, wondering if this will be The end of us
