Album: A Part of Orion

 

 

 

From Skies Above

I see this city for what it is

So shine bright

Contrive away from solitude

Into this hour the air inhaled tonight

Proclaimed here after

We’ll shine bright

Especially as necessary to light

Although contingent to deprive all affliction

Misfortune shall not define

Nor overwhelm the air we breathe

Free us a captive nation

On left or right

The elites against the masses

From skies above

Forgo the life of the dreamer

That which is lost

Can always be found

Through crossing paths

I’ve mistaken my own

Identity

Dissolving this intrusion

Of hope

The desire of something more

To become ourselves

Unfolding life

Mystery of unspoken words

Through parables

How is life, so endearing

Control the caption

Reclaim your position

Free us a captive nation

On left or right

The elites against the masses

Free us a captive nation

On left or right

I see this city for what it is

So shine bright

Contrive away from solitude

Into this hour the air inhaled tonight

Proclaimed here after

We’ll shine bright

Especially as necessary to light




 

Shudder

I am haunted by your face

So much time I have wasted

The lesson, tomorrow doesn’t always arrive

Till the end I stood bedside

Bedside

What sets us apart since I’ve become awake

Following in your footsteps

What I’d give to turn back time

One more day

Just an hour

To share how I feel

A shudder so quiet you can’t hear

Open cries another door shuts

Buried silence

It’s not your fault

To share how I feel

Who’d known the end was so near

In my own reflection

Did I grow to be the man you wished of me?

Are you proud?

My hero, I miss you so

An image of you stares back through my life

Reminiscing times we shared

With a smile that lit up the room

Gone too soon

Lend me a sign that you’re still guiding me

Will I keep on writing the same old stories?

Answer me the divine as I have pledged my life to you

Peace of mind

Request for sublime

Will I keep on writing the same old stories?

Send me a message

Give me a sign

As I stand strong in your image

I feel I have to believe

To me belongs yesterday

And tomorrow I know

In a distorted world

How invincible I’ve come to feel

Will I keep on writing the same old stories?

Answer me the divine as I have pledged my life to you

Peace of mind

Request for sublime

Will I keep on writing the same old stories?

Send me a message

Give me a sign

Will I keep on writing the same old stories?





 

Another Look In The Mirror

Your whole life is a lie

Tear through destruction

Calling all angels to sing

My inner demons awake

Arise

From the ashes

In the depths of my own beliefs

Held captive

How invasive

Beaten and thrown

As tomorrow swims the circles

The outline for today

A loop on delay

We’re already dying

Just live or die with your name

Making all the difference

Help others pave the way

My will to survive

Openly deny the illustration

We turn to what is broken

To what is broken

For fear of missing out

I’ve seemed to miss the rest

We turn what is broken

To what is broken

For fear of missing out

I’ve seemed to miss the rest

Now, turn down the torment

To elude disappointment

Casting light in the darkness

Crushed by emotion

Teach me how to feel, how to love

My test of faith

A faded horizon I see right before me

Before the end of my days

I’ll find, how to love and relate

Transform this day in a message

I know you hear this all the time but silence is the path

To guide your own

Voice

Here are the broken

Rising up

Facing our demons

Distinguishing who we are

Accepting the gift

Feed me through eternity ascending my own condemnation

My beliefs will carry on

A thought for the hopeless

True intentions dawn x2






 

From Voices Within

United

When all of the hatred’s gone

We will stand as one

United for a cause

United x2

It brings me home

United x2

When all of the hatred’s gone

We will stand as one

United for a cause

It brings me home

United

When all of the hatred’s gone

We will stand as one

United for a cause

It brings me home

United    

A call for sedition

To maintain hope

The truth concealed

From all of us

How can we live so blindly?

Yet suddenly there’s color the blind can now see

The recognition of black and white

It feels like yesterday

The air was still so cold that night

Yet vividly I can remember

The sounds of chaos strike fear into motion

Overtaking who we were past who we wanted to be

A thought in motion

In plain sight for those who wish to see

They’ll take everything from us

Once again

How can we live our entire lives based on uncertainty?

I get my strength from above

This perfect vision gives clarity

Inspired by restraints we proceed to rise

Against those corrupted

We’ll fight back

Oh the horror of facing the enemy

Who is this shadow figure who knows my name?

The air was still so cold that night

Yet vividly I can remember

The sounds of chaos strike fear into motion

Overtaking who we were past, who we wanted to be

A thought in motion

In plain sight for those who wish to see

They’ll take everything from us

Once again

How can we live our entire lives based on uncertainty?

I get my strength from above

It’d mean everything to put an end to all

The stirring voices in the wind how could this be?

As answers unfold to me

Clearing Horizons

Learn to let go

Transpire past this illusion

Cast your own shadow

A means to an end

Broader statements need be made

This is the time maybe now you’ll embrace

You’re delusional

Come with me

I can see through your lies

I walked miles away from all I’ve dreamed

Speak to me

Tell me am I alive or fading in and out

Speak to me

Crowded behind these walls I swear I can hear your voice

As life passes by

Do I accept my position in stance?

Tell me no lies

Your feast of dead crows

A discovery, a second chance

To recover purpose

I can see through your lies

I walked miles away from all I’ve dreamed

Speak to me

Tell me am I alive or fading in and out

Speak to me

Crowded behind these walls I swear I can hear your voice

Speak to me

Tell me have our heroes died or are you here with me

If you’re not ashamed

Raise your arms

We lit the fire to rid oppression

Let me see you jump

Your past burns as it fades to ash

Live your life

The skies in reach never settle for less than you deserve

In coming times will you remember where we started who we were?

I feed the memories we leave behind

The spotlights on you will you be calling home to me tonight

In coming times will you remember?





 

Damascus

I’ve seen, I’ve read the scriptures

From the prophets hand

Let this be, as it’s written into stone

Watch as the pale horse canters to define

Divided we’re blinded

To what’s at stake

Relinquish we’re dead inside

I’m surrounded by darkness

In sight I see a ghost not faint before my eyes

That wayward path

Thy seed shall not grow

All eyes have seen what has been erouding

Beneath through time

Time after time

Can this be real?

A once was vision fading

A voice inside my mind

Stealing pure souls through objections

Consumed though demonstration

A taken loss of life

Hear me as I am the creator

Of all

A false witness who speaks only in lies

And one who sows

Discords amongst brethren

As misery love company

That one regret is a lack of commitment

As cascading failures are washed away

A once was vision fading

A voice inside my mind

Stealing pure souls through objections

Consumed though demonstration

A taken loss of life

Though I believe

This calling defines true nature

As we presume forgotten lives

In essence of soulution

Hold yourselves to a higher standared

Do relay the message

Thy will be done

One heart, one chance, one life to lead

Yet still

We let our dreams just die

One heart, one chance, one life to lead

So still not far away and yet still

We let our dreams just die away x2



 



 

Spotting Grace

We must rebuild

Trust in me

We’ll acknowledge this as our reminder

To who we were

Lead me toward salvation

Regain hope

Desperately align your convictions

With the fight to be free

We lead this world

Though, designed in restraints

In dire weakness

Through this illusion

We see the rain

Fall through

If dates I can’t remember

Beautiful skies

Visualize lend your imagination

To rekindle the life you once knew and had

Let this be

Your inspiration

Now I’ve acknowledged my own weakness finding great strength

To overcome

Though odds are stacked against I cannot, will not let this slip away

The gift of living for today

Relive

Heartless, brilliant intention

Defacing the value of us all

 We lead this world

Though, designed in restraints

In dire weakness

Through this illusion

We see the rain

Fall through

Of dates I can’t remember

Beautiful skies

Visualize lend your imagination

To rekindle the life you once knew and had

Let this be

Your inspiration







 

Lucid Dream

Well what is this I’ve seemed to miss along the way

How you’re so picture perfect for me

Countless nights tossing and turning

I was wide awake

Hoping you’d come back wishing you would stay

Knowing the day will never show

I’m just so tempted to call

Instead I’ll have to grow

I’m singing this song

To put my heart at ease

As I let go of our good times

I let the good times walk past me

I take full responsibility

I let the good times walk past me

To know yourself and who we are

Moving on

Through my own struggles I’ve turned a new leaf

A second chapter

To rewrite

So you can revise

This encrypted story finding closure I so desperately need

I let the good times walk past me

I take full responsibility

Rest assure playing victim won’t provide you

With what you seek in life

Define yourself

Not by the hand that you’ve been dealt

It’s all too familiar

Make it count

Define yourself

Make it count  






 

Ghost of a Victim

Freedom

In due time we’ll the tides that are rising

The fear of drowning ascends

I’ll keep this locked inside of me

Until I can’t hold on

From the perspective of a dead man

You reap what you sow

Shall we continue

This road of self pity

Woe was me

But now I oversee my lifeless body

Watching as they lowered me

Into the ground

Though I still remain

They close their eyes

Searching to find the memories

Holding on so tightly

Remember; remember me for who I once was

Not as I lay here before you now

Desperation leads demise

I see the face of a victim

One I can recognize

The realization I’m a ghost

Yet I am still not alone

As the keeper draws near

Though not who I had expected

Approaching hooded in black

To steal my eternity

From me

From the perspective of a dead man

You reap what you sow

Shall we continue

This road of self pity

Woe was me

But now I oversee my lifeless body

Watching as they lowered me

Into the ground

But who am I to claim to be the victim

I’ve left so many with broken hearts, nightmares for dreams

I’ve seen it all

Now understanding the lie that we all live

We lead our lives through hollow deception

The interpretation what is you should be me

Full of greed and envy the desire for more

Has stripped everything from me

As I’m watching over her has she forgotten me?

Coming to terms

I realize the consequence of my final mistake

As I stand here at the gates of hell

Knowing that I’ve been convicted

Trapped for all my days

I’ve lost it all

My love, my wife

 

After the Wolves

Into my heart

It bleeds

Long before I’m aware

There’s nothing in this world

That can lift our souls

While fallen men attempt to climb out of their fears

The mind begins to enter itself

As so many call for answers

Few will feel remorse

To witness our country in darkness

As emptiness devours who we were

We’ve changed for the worst

Like angels with broken wings

We’ve lost our faith

In a nation that prides itself on greed

We’re seeing past our reflection

We’re after the wolves

Under the moonlight let this be your reminder

We’re still alive

Feeling has become so rare in a world so numb x2

Listen close to me now

And mark my words

A failed system has left us all behind to fend for ourselves

We step over the homeless, the hungry, how sad to see

We prefer to be the passer by, then to reach out our hand

Your reflection has be compromised

By the system you hate

We are the plague

And though my intentions are clear

To awaken those asleep

Confined within the lines

Only few will pursue all the signs

A new world in our grasp

I’ve witness strength from the weak

A lost cause searching for the answer

If I should look away,

if I should look away would things all still be the same

And as time seems to move on, on and on

I fear we’re standing still

If I should look away, if I should look away

Would things all still be the same

Hidden within, stand up and find a way out

With new beginnings just the know worst is yet to come into play

You’ll soon find out,

Feeling has become so rare in a world so numb x2

Listen close to me now

And mark my words

A failed system has left us all behind to fend for ourselves

We step over the homeless, the hungry, how sad to see





 

Enter the Mind

I’ve seen faces not mine enter my mind

I’ve seen faces not mine liberate your mind

Tear through the cycle to entertain for you

Amidst the altercation

Encompassed by the few

Do you believe in me?

With my eyes wide open

Point of view

Has become my obsession

In the depths of me

How long will I hold up

Do stay for a while with an open mind

Show me define the guidelines

Dragged out from gnashing teeth

The information age is over

And now it seems we’re starving for wisdom

It’s night and day from where we were till now

As yesterday feels so far away

I’ve been waiting on this but now it’s arrived

I revise everything we’d hoped for

Yet I’m the dreamer

Walking along the sidelines

I’ve tapped into something more than divine

This demonstration of true integrity

Show me the light

I can’t sleep at night I see the faces in my mind reflecting

Liberate your mind

Convinced that I have awaken

I can now sleep at night

Do you believe in me?

With my eyes wide open

Point of view

Has become my obsession

In the depths of me

How long will I hold up

Do stay for a while with an open mind

Show me define the guidelines x2

Dragged out from gnashing teeth






 

Force of Action

Reclaim let go

To thrive inside

To witness life flash before my eyes

Before I let go

Let me know I have your blessing

As open caskets shut

Do reach for me now

My own endeavors portray a sequence of deception

Through all is evil

Between silence and beauty I’ll see the darkness in the light forevermore

One must see to believe our existence will carry on

We’re not destined for wrath but to obtain salvation

Salvation x2

In my fault of decisions

What’s left behind

Which leaves us all to weak

Avoidance of behavior, alive in a world of motion

That which stay in decline

Because a day without you feels like forever to me

I search the skies so blue to find you

Screaming back at me

We’ll break away from the heartless

Enter an empty mind

With clear views it could be placed together

Consolidate you’re divinity

Bring forth a new beginning

And now I watch as the fallen take no comfort in lies

My time for you as expected, shall be forgotten

The shaded line that meets the sand

Travels untold, unexpected, do forgive me now

A taste of the tides

The under toe that pulls beneath the surface face

As forward lies remain disguised

Case this, a new beginning

Bring forth transcend, unmask, lay down disguise

Cursed as I’m told without pattern x2

Cursed as I’m told without pattern

In an act of desperation to fill the void

The gift of purpose

To belong, to whom I may rely

Maintain composure

We live to fight another day

To end the suffering

Our existence shall lay the path as there is hope for the one true king

Though I am not worth the saving

Break away from the thoughtless

Hours of life spent running from time
