Halo(s) – Lyrics

Posted by Jason On August - 1 - 2009

Halo(s) (EP2)

White walls
For blackened rooms
But no one ever sees inside
Lock and key
A mirrored we
Always reflect the light

Outside
The wheels of progress
Everything is spit and shine
The friends we keep
Never see
All that’s outside the light

Halos, on our heads
But heartache in our souls
How long will we keep hiding
How long until we show
Broken and named
We are the same

Hidden
Any signs of weakness
Systematic rights and wrongs
Life on stage
The script unchanged
Hidden inside the walls

Halos, on our heads
But heartache in our souls
How long will we keep hiding
How long until we show
Broken and named
We are the same

Wake the dead
Raise up all the casualties of youth
Remain unsaid
Let what we do
Speak the truth

Halos, on our heads
But heartache in our souls
How long will we keep hiding
How long until we show
Broken and named
We are the same
We are the lost
We are the shamed
Like the blood in our veins
We are the same

Shades of Postmodern Gray – Lyrics

Posted by Jason On August - 1 - 2009

Shades of Postmodern Gray (EP2)

Maybe I over think
Then I overreact
To anyone, or anything I don’t understand

Seeing the relative
Serving the absolutes
Where black is white and white is right
Of the things we do

I don’t think I understand or comprehend
All the different ways of man

Suffer the rationale
Caught in a culture war
The new, the old, the yet untold, battle-born

And I’ll become
What I become
A casualty
Nothing less, and nothing more

But I’m caught here in the gray
Stuck on things that never change
And I fear what I’ve been told
Fear what I may never know

Am I the modernist?
Have I been left behind?
The good, the bad, the things we’ve had
Never die

They live and breathe
And have their being inside of You
But is that inside of me?

But I’m caught here in the gray
Stuck on things that never change
And I fear what I’ve been told
Fear what I may never know

Release me from this cage I’ve made
The pessimist, the naturalist
Hold my chains

Come on, release me from this cage I’ve made
Some things you just can’t explain away

Tell me how
Tell me why
We tie ourselves under roof
And not under sky

But I’m caught here in the gray
Stuck on things that never change
And I fear what I’ve been told
Fear what I may never know

Let the Color Return – Lyrics

Let the Color Return (EP2)

Release me from this cage I’ve made
Release my from these thoughts
That hold me slave

Release me from this cage I’ve made

Some things you just can’t explain
Some things you just can’t explain
Some things you just can’t explain

Action/Reaction – Lyrics

Posted by Jason On August - 1 - 2009

Action/Reaction (EP2)

If I move, does it pull the strings?
All the strings that are tied around me
Is this decision?
Or is it fiction?
Some kind of pre-made destiny

If I speak does it make a sound?
Or are these words pulled from my mouth?
Words are diction
Like they were written
Long before I spit them out

With all, without
I am still right now
My hopes, my doubts
One and the same

If I think, therefore I am
A hapless thought in the closest realm
Like an action
With no reaction
The bitter end of consequence

With all, without
I am still right now
What is, is how
The ever-present here and now
My hopes, my doubts
One and the same

You see the end as we begin
You see the end as we move within
You see the end as we begin
You see the end as it is

Pull the wool over my eyes
But I still see that we’re trapped inside
All that’s vision
Is what we’re given
Either way you control my life

With all, without
I am still right now
What is, is how
The ever-present here and now
My hopes, my doubts
One and the same

Like Waves, Like Sea – Lyrics

Posted by Jason On April - 1 - 2009

Like Waves, Like Sea (EP1)

Maybe You could tell me why
I keep pushing
Why I even try

All these thoughts
They temper me
They keep moving
Waving like the sea

If there’s a God
Looking down below
I hope He sees
All that He controls
And if He chooses
Not to intervene
Maybe it’s best
I don’t succeed

Maybe I have missed the point
Caught up in the
Details and the sort

I could fight to no avail
Though He slay me
I will not despair

(Chorus)

And I collide
With the fate I try to hide
Shaken to my roots

And all I know
Has been tossed and turned
Like waves, like sea

Maybe You could tell me why
Everything is broken
Turned up dry

If there’s a God
He’s looking down below
I hope He sees
All that He controls
And if He chooses
Not to intervene
Maybe it’s best
I don’t succeed

I hope it’s best
I don’t succeed

I trust it’s best
I don’t succeed

Icarus – Lyrics

Posted by Jason On April - 1 - 2009

Icarus (EP1)

Set the tether to the heavens
All things new
It’s the age of progression
Awake in you

Building towers to the sun
Like Icarus upon the sky in flight
Are we not the chosen ones?
In you, it’s me
In me, it’s always true

Who loves you more?
Loves you more than I can?
Who loves you more?
Loves you when the chemicals react

We’re gods below the surface
Dawns anew
Like ghosts among the atoms
Free from rule

Setting up the temple walls
Tying up the feathers to suspend
We are now the one and all
In you, it’s me
In me, it’s always true

Who loves you more?
Loves you more than I can?
Who loves you more?
Loves you with the wings upon my back
Who gave you all?
Gave you all that you have?
Who loves you more?
Loves you when the chemicals

React to the visions
React to the voices
React to the water
Below us, the end of all
React to the coming
React to the going
React to the fear
That we’re wrong
And not alone at all

Tell me if the armor cracks
Tell me if the clocks are turning back
Over, and over
The sun, the heats attacks

Who loves you more?
Loves you more than I can?
Who loves you more?
Loves you with the wings upon my back
Who gave you all?
Gave you all that you have?
Who loves you more?
Loves you when the chemicals

Say – Lyrics

Posted by Jason On April - 1 - 2009

Say (EP1)

So much to say, in so many ways
So little time, for so many days
Feeling undone
Feeling like you’re just half awake

Have you lost it son?
Have you lost the Holy Ghost?
Are you speaking in tongues?
With no one to tell you so

The words fall like rain
But the words don’t
The words never

Say
The words never say anything
They don’t change
The words never change anything for me

You dig and you try
But you’re only moving ground
Ask yourself why
But answers remain unfound

You don’t talk when you speak
Because the words don’t
The words never

Say
The words never say anything
They don’t change
The words never change anything for me

Me and the voices in my head
Telling me things to do instead
Closing my eyes, yet unable to rest

The weight of the world
The weight of a million souls
Pressing upon
The fear that you’ll lose your own

You draw from the well
But the words don’t
The words never say

Say
The words never say anything
They don’t change
The words never change anything for me
