about

This record is a reflection of certain events that have affected us personally and as a band.

After having come to a crossroad of sorts, having parted ways with half of our band, we had to pick ourselves back up and decide what to do. Whether to simply just quit this dream that we had all shared together, or to start from scratch.

What resulted was a culmination of the emotions we felt and the struggles we've been through translated into these four songs.

We wrote this record to remind ourselves that to be better and stronger individuals, we have to go through these so called disasters, and that in time we will move on, the past is dead and gone.

Track Name: Weight of the World (Feat. Khairul of Allegiance)
(intro)

The weight of the world on my shoulders
I heal my heart
This is my explanation
I wanna stay alive
Never again with the ghosts of my past they're my enemies
I heal my heart
The past is dead and gone
I'll hush my heart tonight
Redeem me from the ashes
I'll make it home
I'll make it home
Redeem me from the ashes

(verse)

Our words are broken
Spiralling downwards
Leave this path to self destruction
for there is a lasting future
My words are broken

Run, why don't we run
Resist this suffering
Is this how we face reality
It's like a nightmare
While I'm wide awake

Refusing to stand down
With gritted teeth
Refusing to stand down
With gritted teeth we brace ourselves

(chorus)

The weight of the world on my shoulders
I heal my heart
This is my explanation
I wanna stay alive
Never again with the ghosts of my past they're my enemies
I heal my heart
The past is dead and gone
I'll hush my heart tonight

(verse)

We all have difficulty breathing
Suffocating in my burdens
Judged as liars, bounded by our deeds
Eyes like daggers
These lips whisper devastation

Run, why don't we run
Resist this suffering
Is this how we face reality
It's like a nightmare
When I'm wide awake

Run, why don't we run
Resist this suffering
Refusing to stand down
With gritted teeth we brace ourselves

For heaven's sake,
Pray for our hearts
Believing in a new hope
And a new home

(chorus)

The weight of the world on my shoulders
I heal my heart
This is my explanation
I wanna stay alive
Never again with the ghosts of my past they're my enemies
I heal my heart
The past is dead and gone
I'll hush my heart tonight
Redeem me from the ashes
I'll make it home
I'll make it home
I'll make it home
I'll make it home
With these weak hands,
My weakened stance
I'll take my throne
I'll take my throne
I'll take my throne
I'll take my throne
Redeem me from the ashes
I'll make it home

(Outro)

Run, why don't you run
Resist this suffering,
Refusing to stand down
We're saved by grace
Track Name: Mi Amor
(verse)

Blinded!
I can’t seem to find the light
The pain
Like a throbbing vein on the side of my head
I won’t falter

Find!
I’ve found hope again
These anchors
Wont ever hold me down

Wasted nights,
I’ve been around this life,
Suffocating, like a dying flame.
Breaking away
Refusing you, I’m ashamed of your views
The cracks on this face, wounded and weary

(Pre chorus)

Insisting, for I’m a sinner
Neglecting, my own free will
Forsaken, for my decisions
Inflicted on a hopeless heart

(Chorus)

Lying Down
Was my only escape
Dreams and sleep
With my eyes wide awake
Consciously floating
Constantly wishing
How a thousand years backwards was a lifetime ago
And yet my fears will never be altered

Prove to me I'm wrong
That you're worthy
Cause every time we talk
It's like they're hearing
Never felt secure
I wish you're gone

(Verse)

Then it hits me so hard I've yet to let go
Let it be, let my mind put itself to rest

Oh God
Please give me the courage
To shun these past lives and memories
And seek a future of my own
We will move on

No regrets for what I've done
But now I've found the one

(Chorus)

Prove to me I'm wrong
That you're worthy
Cause every time we talk
It's like they're hearing
Never felt secure
I wish you're gone

Lying Down
(Breathe in this hope)
Was my only escape
Dreams and sleep
With my eyes wide awake
Consciously floating
(Bleed in this oath)
Constantly wishing
How a thousand years backwards was a lifetime ago
And yet my fears will never be altered

(Outro)

Insisting, for I’m a sinner
Neglecting, my own free will
Forsaken, for my decisions
Inflicted on a hopeless heart
Track Name: Dead Disaster
(verse)

The past, the hurt
They never leave
They never fail to haunt me
I'm moving forward

I just wanna leave
I'm sick of all these bad dreams
Letters and ink
Won't save me
Can someone save me

Distracted I wanna feel alive
The dead and gone keeps coming
Everything keeps on playing

Alone I feel like I'm dying within
I've gone insane I'm losing my mind

I'm reminded of every moment
but It's moments like these
It's a shame, everything's changed consider this a fair exchange

Whats the point of it all
The past is dead and gone

(chorus)

Just hold your breathe
Fallen from your grace
Leave the past
Live another day
Time will pass
We'll grow old
Nothing can stop
Believe in your own faith
We'll pull through, with or without you
A room left in my heart
I'll embrace this brand new start

(verse)

I'm seeking, redemption is straight ahead
Memories are shattered
Our hearts are weathered
Memories are shattered
Pick up these pieces and take flight

Press on and move on
The past is dead we have to carry on
Press on and move on
The past is dead we have to carry on

Continue on
This journey
With faith etched in our hearts
We will, never fall apart

(chorus)

Just leave the past behind
Just prove your worth
We will never be forsaken
Oh God I just wanted to be free
Unshackle these vices
And the demons within
the demons within
Just leave the past behind
Just prove your worth
Hopes of your happily ever after
We will never be forsaken
Oh God I just wanted to be free
To be free

(verse)

Chasing the future
No one lives in the past

Alone I feel like I'm dying within
I've gone insane I'm losing my mind

Through the years
Experience
It's our time
No we have learnt

Retrace, Remember
What's inside
Retrace and Remember
Who you are inside
Retrace, Remember
What's inside
Retrace and Remember
Who you are inside

We won't look back
We won't look back
There's nothing else to hide
Track Name: Au Revoir
(verse)

Seek out your sorrow,
Concealed deep inside,
It’s time to let it go,
don’t you dare fucking hide
Don’t leave your life to chance
And say it’s your only fate
Embrace the lies, the past,
You gotta make a fucking break.
Don’t leave this life to chance,
Blaming it all on fate
Embrace the lies, the past,
We gotta make a fucking break.
Purge the demons inside

Why don't you forget
All that was done,
My broken outer shell,
Brings relief to my bones,
Forgive,
All that was done,
My broken outer shell,
Brings relief to my bones,
We have ourselves to blame,
Despite all this shame,
My heart beats free.
No more places to go,
Nowhere to run

I've seen the strength you've carried inside
Let's escape from our misery and forever be free
We are no longer prisoners
We are no longer
Bound by our mistakes, set us free
The future lies right ahead

No regrets you can do anything
We have our moments
But even so

(verse)

You have
The power to take control
There is no compromise,
So just grab hold
For opportunities don’t just come and go

We have
The knowledge to pull us through
There is no compromise,
Forgive our own
Onward we move
The demons we slay

Would you call me insane?
I wanna forget all this pain
Today our hopes will be fulfilled
Destiny rests in our hands
Let these failures motivate you
de-enervate as we gravitate,


(Chorus)

I see the world with my sober eyes
Sometimes I wonder why
You know it’s wrong,
You try to make it right

I see the world with my sober eyes
Sometimes I wonder why
You know its wrong,
You try to make it right

(Outro)

Oh God
I won’t let you down
Keep my eyes on that crown,
For I have earned it.
Oh God
We won’t let you down
Keep our eyes on that crown,
Now we’re forgiven.
Oh God
I won’t let you down
Keep my eyes on that crown,
For I have earned it.
Oh God
We won’t let you down
Keep our eyes on that crown,
Now we’re forgiven.
