Track Name: Venus's Rapture
A dream beyond my comprehension
Eyes deep blue, full of tension
Her dunes of sand like a fantasy
My heart is racing with her ecstasy

Time has come to move on
Time has come to move along

You give and sacrifice
All within your comfort
Just for an undeserving smile
You use me up like a smoker's cigarette
A false essence of love keeps me
In grave denial

A tainted Venus
Garden left to dry
Your nectar now a bitter stain
Unworthy of a reverend goodbye

Time has come to move on
Time has come to move along

The ocean calls my name
The sky is mine to tame
We were given wings to fly
My burdens are old lullabies
We were given wings to soar
Rooted to the earth no more
Track Name: Utter
Beauty lies in her heart.
How was I so blindly leashed, beat down, decaying under my own feet

Opinions were made to satisfy the illusion of independence she said,
It’s only choice if you fostered the idea, not having it drilled in your head

Sown mouthed penny-pinching coward
Expose your desires, let her seduce empowerment

Silent suffering
Left gagged to crawl, below thick green clouds
Yet asked to see the bright night stars
Unmask inner tendencies
Feel her in your chest, hear sweet symphony attest
Let her wash your hands of decadence

They say the gleam in her eyes reveals ill intention and false affection,
I say I just don’t care
I need yet I don’t believe she can care the way I do
But I can’t find it in my heart to accept the cards that lay before me

Standing with a lit match that you rationed
Holding dry chapters that you fashioned
Of the “precious” life
Meaningless with stale degradation
Of the mind and blood that fuels your soul alight

Silent suffering
Left gagged to crawl, below thick green clouds
Yet asked to see the bright night stars
Unmask inner tendencies
Feel her in your chest, hear sweet symphony attest
Let her wash your hands of decadence
Feel her pulse as she grips your hand
Tearing shackles, leaving you bare
Lips warming your skin
Indulge in the forbidden affair
Track Name: From The Ashes
Awake, I see a man who's distant gaze casts reflections, faint ebony glow
Broken inside,
Eroding surmise,
A helpless and fatal demise

Closed my eyes
For you to see

A soft voice anticipates to call my name
With glass eyes you look away, so lonely
Let the night blindfold your eyes
Darkness will bring my face to light

I thank you, for my own sake you stayed strong,
For there was no healing hand, no healing hand reaching down
Sundown ever-setting
My own hand will bring rebirth, my ending
Lay down now and rest a while
In my absence you will find why I

Closed my eyes for you to see

Closed my eyes for you

A soft voice anticipates to call my name
With glass eyes you look away, so lonely
Let the night blindfold your eyes
Darkness will bring my face to light

Our cold bed. Memories. Until we meet again.
