Track Name: Castle's In The Air
Dream's of storms, side slide.
Tryna find a way make sense,
Tryna find a way to break out now.

To survive, close calls.
When did this world turn alone?
In ways the throne turned to
Ghosts grown cold,
Its time to go, no one knows,
Somebody heil answers to me.

Chaos, Save us,
Take us in.
Tryna find a way make sense.
Tryna find a way to break out now.

Molding a thought, close your eyes.
Why did you fall asleep?
Should've known, its my throne.
If I'm put to the test,
Maybe summoned & dead.
What a prophecy.
Should've known.
If I wait to long, nailed to the cross upon.
To just make things worse.
Pray too, though we have fallen before.

Imagine

Letting in.
Let me in.
But the altars locked, the bibles closed.
Let me in, God!
Im drowned with sin, empty yet
Pray too, though we have fallen before.

And its pulling me backwards, and telling me go back.
Im not pulling me backwards and,
To just make things worse.

They Plan this to, just make things worse
They planned this to, just make things worse.
Track Name: Follow
Far from close, detached from the inside.
There's a fire I fear, there's a war that I hear.
From the distance which screams, Don't Go.
Now here we are. Four lost souls.
Can you feel the breeze?
And its pulling me backwards & Telling me to go back.

Im not questioning. Is God listening?
Where do we go?
Through the woods that seem to close.
And it's pulling me backwards and telling me to go back.
Can I say that it's just too late.

Follow, Follow
Follow, Follow

Screaming Yeah!
Sick of the voice misleading them.
Screaming Yeah!
Sick of the king misleading them, misleading.

Prideful soul let it go, let this go.
And he crucified all the ones
Drinking from gold.

Draw blood from this stone.
This kingdoms burning down.
Heavens upside down now.
We prayed.

Not gonna go and turn my back again.
This kingdoms burning down,
Heavens upside down now.
We prayed this would end.
This kingdoms burning down,
Heavens upside down now.
We prayed.

The sound fills the air.
Run anxiously,
Into the forrest, nothing can save them.
No time to turn my back.
Screaming yeah.
Running anxiously, running through my mind.
To pray, To save.

Hear I am. The voice to say.
That there's something up ahead,
Screaming up ahead.
Wheres my control?
How could the weather erode me to stone?
Let it go, Let this go, Let me go.
Track Name: Seeing Blue
Still we are too lost to walk the road, we know.
There's a voice in my head, set in stone.
God only knows.

Night falls, there's something lurking out there, out there.
Just where did you go? Tunnel vision, vertigo.
As the forest closes in I lose the road.

The sky turns black before the rain.
Land slide to let me drown. To watch me fall apart.
Seeing blue, let it slide.
Calling outside, Pray to the sky.
Yet I'm feeling so close, am I on this road?

Hold a second, take a breath, let your conscious go, Im there.
To take control. Walking alone.
This screaming who I am, I can't control, I'm turning inside out.

Settle down, neglect to tell me.
Why can't I settle down the way I should be?
Why can't I settle down? Settle Down!
Running through my mind,
How could I let myself down this time?
Clever voice deceiving.

Side swipe the way I feel, To watch me act upon.

Seeing blue,
Walking alone, yeah.
Do you feel let down, do you?
Seeing blue, let it slide.
Calling outside. Pray to the sky.
Yet I can feel the flames are near.
Am I on this road?

I dreamed the village in the distance and its burning red.
Burning lost souls. But what do I know?
I dreamed the village in the distance, somethings wrong.
The sky is blood, I know its burning red.
Burning lost souls. But what do we know?

Uh oh!
I think I've been tripping and walking in backwards again.
We go, where? We don't know.
Tied up, abandoned all alone.
Wait know I'm here, I said I'm here!
Who has control, whose taking the role?
I swear you would know.
I said its me. No wait its thee.
Im not going to rest, not breaking the edge,
Till all the voices unfold, nothing but truth.

And its lurking out there.
Land slide to let me drown.
To watch me fall apart and lose my mind.
Yeah on & on & on.

I dreamed the dream beyond the crown, oh how its bleeding dead.
Intuitive view, who'd ever knew.
I dreamed the dream beyond this land between this me and repent,
I should amend.

Do you feel let down? Do You?

I got this feeling. I got me feeling this way today.
Landslide to let me drown, to watch me fall apart.
I got me feeling insane, don't let go.
You got me feeling this way, today.
To let this go right on.
Track Name: The Four Horseman
Can we save ourselves? Don't Go.
On we go. Now we are,
Searching for control.
Yet will put ourselves to sleep.

Break down this edge till you take control, On we go.
Someone's up ahead. Screaming out for help.
While they die, White eyes.

Here's this something up ahead.
Sleeping no its dead.
Wheres my control?
What a lonely way to go. And I walked right on.
Can we save ourselves? Don't Go.
On we go. Now we are,
Searching for control.
Yet will put ourselves to sleep.

The village is flames and I couldn't do a damn thing.
Theres four horses ridden by shadows leading them to,
Crucify me up the hill and crown me with thorns, violent storms.
Rusted nails hold me the shape of the cross by the edge.

Searching for this.

Just take this oath to my grave.
Heaven bound, broken down, upside down.
Where I couldn't escape the cross.
How am I to know that the faith in the crown wouldn't rise above?
Face on the ground, theres a man staring.
Are you alright?
Did I survive?
Track Name: Drawing Blood From A Stone
All time leaves to grow.
Only just to break hope, let go.
So much for peace be with us.

And I don't know how to explain this to you here.
Simply a ghost, drawing the blood from a stone.

Yeah! To believe in the air.
Only just to break hope, let go.
And you'll get what you get,
And you'll turn it into stone.

Don't let this feeling get to your head.
Burning up the wounds, He Draws!
Hear Him Out!

Yeah! Screaming Yeah!
Only just to break oath, let go.
Im not the cold, Im not pretentious here.
Yeah! To believe in the air.
Only just to break hope, let go.
And you'll get what you get,
And you'll turn it into stone.

To the sea we go.
Only just to save home.
But then you had to let go.
Searching for the throne,
Im not calling quits till.

Is it real?

Yeah! Screaming Yeah!
Only just break oath, let go.
Im not the cold, Im not pretentious here.
Yeah! Screaming Yeah!
Only just break oath, let go.
Im not the cold, Im not pretentious here.

Take a hold of the truth. You're gonna get what you deserve.
Nothing to say. Did you find another way outside of the noose.
You're gonna get what you deserve.
Take a hold of the truth. You're gonna get what you deserve.
Nothing to say. Did you find another way outside of the noose.
Would you,
Hear Me Out!

Take a hold of the truth. You're gonna get what you deserve.
Nothing to say. Did you find another way outside of the noose.
You're gonna get what you deserve.
Track Name: Stay Afloat
Landslide Oh, Losing our hope. No.
And were searching for, land with a rose.
Maybe theres something to grow, so you know.
Just stay afloat, Don't let go.

Now we stand by the shore,
Knowing better than running from enemies.
Come make things worse.

Stay afloat. Don't let go.

Casting off, lead me to cross.
So plan, do you get me to kneel by the throne?
And to poison my faith in the crown? No.

Now we stand by the shore,
Knowing better than running from enemies.
Dare make things worse.

Stay afloat. Don't Let Go.

How am I supposed to know that you couldn't feel, couldn't heal?
Im rising off a distant sky, and I can't believe that Im still breathing.
Traveling all these thousand miles to take control.
Here's to your throne. So you know,
That Im on my way.

Taking control for a thousand lost souls.
Can I say, Can I say that,
We'll overcome. See through the enemy.
Pull out the ropes & we'll let out the sails.
Here we cast out to shore knowing we can prevail.
I know we'll overcome.
Peace grant serenity.

Left me here alone.
Prideful soul just let go.
Can I say that its just to late.
