Track Name: Welcome To The Progression
Mirror, tell me who's clone am I?
I am my father's son,
but the rest is left to others' eyes.

The sirens call,
their song for one and all,
with backs against the wall,
the strong will never fall.

The sirens call,
their song for one and all,
with backs against the wall,
the strong will never fall.

It's not their schemes that brought about this change in me,
not their words of twisted, sick, pathetic dreams.
Garden of Eden for the serpents preying on the weak,
a labyrinth for the fallen to forever seek.

Silver tongues draw your attention from your chained hands,
a willing slave with intentions of a free man.
Everything's the same if you know no different,
choices can't be yours if your own mind isn't.

Open your eyes;
Don't let them inside.
This is an S.O.S.,
someone please save our souls,
we are men, we are free willed thinkers,
not a tool used to further your goals.

We are all created with a purpose,
not manufactured for someone to deem worthless.
You've got a dream? Well We've got something to prove,
a way to do it, and nothing to lose.

I can't follow your path to my home.
The winds are changing I can see them chilling your bones.
Where's your power now?
You stand all alone,
all your lies buried underneath your tombstone.

Your whispers reach
more than your screams,
a broken mind yields no dreams.

I will not stand for a world,
that shines lights to cowards and condemns the brave.
At least I'm still trying, and that's more than you can say.
Track Name: Ashland King
The truth sinks deeper as the flames burn higher,
we loved what we burned,
lets watch and admire.

Because in the end,
like a match without fire,
your past means nothing if it kills your desire.

Am I insane?
Or is there no difference between pleasure and pain,
they're just the same damn demon with a different name.

Break me free,
from these chains.
I'm living the same life in a different way.

Pick your head up child,
there's so much work for you to do,
if you lose your faith in others always keep your faith in you.
Maybe the smoke will finally make them see what we can be,
if you lose you faith in others always keep your faith in me.

I know you're hurting, but trust me, we must move on.
There's no heaven until all your demons are gone.
In your final moments, you will know you're not alone,
because you've always known this hell is not your home.

Breathe it in,
feel it char your skin.

I can't see five feet in front of me,
slowly suffocating as the city sleeps.
Drenched in desperation, I just can't crawl anymore,
five steps from the flames and six until I reach the door.

Pick your chin up child, there's so much work for you to do,
if you have no faith in others always keep your faith in you.
Maybe the smoke will make them see what we can be,
if you have no faith in others always keep your faith in me.

I know you're hurting, but trust me, we must move on.
There's no heaven until all your demons are gone.
In your final moments, you will know you're not alone,
because you've always known this hell is not your home.

Your past is ashes now, all is gone and torn apart.
The fires died but now the flame prospers inside your heart.
A parade for the hero, a procession for the dead,
and a hearse for the voice you used to fight inside your head.

All the monsters I've met,
and all the memories I've made,
and I still remember, everything you said. (4x)
Track Name: Red John
I promised myself just one more time, with these hands I change your life and mine, no need to be frightened dear, just bloody smile.

I promise you that you don't know fear, but you put on quite a convincing show, I will make you smile from ear to ear, a bloody smile.
You wanna talk? I'll make you feel the lies you told, the guilt I felt I swear you'll feel sevenfold. The silver lines between life and death have been cut, so say your final goodbye.

Your time, your time is out.

I'm binded by my mind, a gnawing beast I can't understand, it's not my hate that drives me, but the monster that lives within. I promise I am human, but now the demons are taking hold, and I can fight no longer, I guess my soul has been sold.
You pass judgements by my acts, if I'm the devil then you ain't no saint yourself, you know what's right and wrong, because you heard it from someone else. I wear a mask to hide my face, you wear yours to hide your shame you despise the things I do, but you're the ones that bring me fame. If you can read my mind, then you should've seen this coming all along. There is more to come, our story's just begun.

The walls are closing in, the pictures fall to the floor, my vision turns to red as they scream out that they have nothing to live for.
Don't focus on the pain, it's a lesson not a punishment. I've realized I'm not broken, it's all of you that make me sick. That's my smile on the wall, this is your joy, don't close your eyes. That is my smile on the wall, your blood should make you feel alive.

Can't you see? This is your salvation. I'm saving you from your damnation. Look at me, I am your salvation, an angel with human temptations.

My heartbeat slows, my breathing follows the metronome. There are no goodbyes, just a face painted clockwise. My mind will keep turning, my heart will keep hurting, god I must pay for my sins, because I know I will do it again. Over and over again. Over and over again.
Track Name: A Test Of Faith
You said you'd meet me here,
and I've been waiting here forever.
Forever's been long enough,
I'm heading back home.

Look me in the eye and tell me that you've given up.
That every option's been exhausted and that you've had enough.
Remember where we were.
And remember all the memories we've made.
This place will never mean the same again.

Does this mean anything to you.
You know that I can't stand the emptiness I feel inside.
This wooden bridge that acted like a vessel.
I swear I've burned it so many times.

But these pictures never fade.
Because in those few long days.
I've felt this heart more than anything.

You count on the stars to lead you home
But will they still shine when you're alone
The only thing to do is hope
The only thing to do is hope

I thought you'd be here,
said you'd meet me on my side.
And now I'm standing here.
With nobody by my side.

So this is what it's come to.
It was all worth nothing.

Memories are all we have.
So let's make them last.
I've said nothing last forever.
But these pictures never fade.
Track Name: Seventeen
This is what I've been looking for.
All of my life I've been looking up.
Looking for a signal from the sky.
Open up the heavens and come down just for one night.
You and I can walk this road forever alone.

Please just show me a sign that you're watching.
Don't make this all worth nothing. It is all worth something. Just show me a sign. Anything to let me know you're always above me.
I've given all that I have, just for the chance for you to see me as I am.
Still there is no response from above. Yet, I sit here waiting for an answer that will never come. My hands are empty, my feet are sore. You've given me nothing but the hunger for something more.

I've chasing signals in the dark. I have seen nothing. Just show me a sign. Show me something.

When you're on your own, who's to say you're all alone. (4x)

This need of isolation is just so I can be closer to you. The stars seem so welcoming as you smile down at me.
When you're on your own, who's to say you all alone?
