Track Name: Wash
Off the record, unspoken thoughts and alibis
Couldn't face it, up and taken by surprise
So unsettled, sick and lying on your side
Not the same, feeling like I wanna die

Too much to sit up straight
Rest while you can
Follow the clearest fate
Leading on again...

All the secrets reveal more than they intend
Things I can't know, now that I am on the mend
What is the sound? What is the cadence to defend
And I'm found, on the fringes of the end

Sliding through the present
No interest in today
Chalk it up to motives
Long gone away...

Down the road, equalize your mind
Let go of all the strain
Dangerous, what you left behind
Wash your hands of the pain

On the outside, on the pathway to the truth
Nothing matters when I'm finding out too soon

No sense of normalcy
Really hits me where I live!
A crushing absence in the patterns of the world
And I have nothing left to give!
Track Name: The Toll
Our travelers in tow
On the long weary road
The throws of a cold, black night

And soon we all fell
Toward the crater of hell
Exceedingly far from the light

It wants us to STAY!
We'll keep hope anyway
Try losing your SOUL in flight!

From the vile rock fangs
The spider queen hangs
To whisper the words of hate

Her large tortured pets
All have no regrets
Accepting a grizzly fate

To the Prime Evil's LAIR!
Enter through unto there
By paying THE TOLL with your life!

Heed the secrets of tome
For the journey back home
Where spirits never shall roam
