Dear Detective I’m sorry for your loss, How was I to know The clown would take it all My admission I bought him as a pawn A coin with just one side But integral for the fall Your fallen soldier You should’ve seen his eyes The demon’s blood attached I know he picked a side The hatter and puppeteer, they are they rats With them in the floor, we’ll never be free to dance So breathe in your own destiny, and stand by my side What this world needs, is a swift forceful goodbye I’m tired of hearing all the bureaucrats Forget their latency it’s time to act You are the only one who stands a chance Now let me show you true honest romance Open your eyes, this ends tonight My ancient scribe, the pit runs dry Your parents would say, it’s better this way The world at your fist, we’ll take more than this The farmhand and that flightless bird, they are the rats With them in the floor, we’ll never be free to dance So breathe in your own destiny, and stand by my side What this world needs, is a swift forceful goodbye

Mockingbird 02:38
Maybe if I lay down my head I’ll forget, about the place I’m in My eyes shut - just doesn’t silence the screams Do you know - how long I’ve been out? Can’t recall - anything but doubt Could you see - through my surreal disguise? I heard A voice It came - from inside my window pane It said It needs The sane Cold and scared - stretched out on the floor I’ve been here - plenty times before Hold the thought - visualize escape I’m surprised - we lasted this long I’ve not once - been listed as strong There’s a chance - that one of us will make it Regret mixed with hopelessness makes one deadly cocktail Give me one more for last call, later explain the drunken tale I forget - how we designed the plan Scalpel, plus - the luck of the hand Careful, now - this must be timed out just right Wait til the guard gets a load of me Syringe first - maybe one or three The hunger - might take over, we’ll see This is a message for someone though I won’t pretend Who it’s for or why I wrote it, find out in the bitter end… The bitter end… The bitter end

On The Brink 02:18
Every part feels like observation Like a cancer But so the standard and predictable For the normal The smallest tasks are too daunting The shame and guilt too crippling Zero get through this life with no fuck ups I’ll be there at the end to hold you up I’m shaking too but I will be right here I’m staying in place friend, so dry your tears Why is my view so distorted and bleak Burns in my head No one asked to be here so why play nice You fucking robots The smallest tasks are too daunting The shame and guilt too crippling Zero get through this life with no fuck ups I’ll be there at the end to hold you up I’m shaking too but I will be right here I’m staying in place friend, so dry your tears We’ll silence Doctor Morrow with our song And we’ll get everyone to sing along I’ll make sure that no evil can get through This world is meaningless… …Unless it has you

The Pocket 03:11
Runaway runaway Some might call it fate Come with me come with me I know just the place No use for work when the world is burning down We’re only here once - so pass the bottle around One more shot one more shot Then we’ll hit the road Battle scars battle scars Tales will be told All of us orphans found out where we belong Our magic differs but we still sing the same song And we’ll hide away We will hide away We will hide away, together From Oblivion Sing with me sing with me Be a friend not foe Find a way find a way Outrun tomorrow No use for work when the world is burning down We’re only here once - so pass the bottle around And we’ll hide away We will hide away We will hide away, together From Oblivion We’re not lost, but cannot be found To get your taste, just follow the sound And we’ll hide away We will hide away We will hide away, together From Oblivion

The embers fade As a lonely campfire winds itself away Getting kind of hard to see the light You've built a maze, Lies make their contribution to the haze But your tinfoil plan can't see me right...behind you Waiting right there where I knew you'd be Put you to pasture what you've sown...you'll reap No matter the stakes - I'll get to the truth Whatever it takes - I'll get to the proof I'll interrogate - we'll get right down to the bottom You'll never escape - my Lasso of Truth And through the mire, try to appear innocent but then you fire bullets of deceit I'll cast aside It's time to pay Your mendacious tendencies are on display Destroyed by the truth you tried to hide...and (but) found me Waiting right there where I knew you'd be Put you to pasture what you've sown...you'll reap No matter the stakes - I'll get to the truth Whatever it takes - I'll get to the proof I'll interrogate - we'll get right down to the bottom You'll never escape - my Lasso of Truth No matter the stakes - I'll get to the truth Whatever it takes - I'll get to the proof I'll interrogate - we'll get right down to the bottom You'll never escape - my Lasso of Truth

The Way 02:29
A couple years back, when all the world was bright A balanced sector, which stems the need to fight How were we to know the changing tide The rotting invite from inside Intent regardless, you crossed the fucking line Without a conscience, we’d never stand behind Now all our ties cut, we’ll have to start again Say goodbye to this old man But wait, your name comes up again And floods me with jealous discontent, it’s not ok I still have questions, like what the hell’s the drive I know it can’t be, whatever’s left inside You really thought that the world would stay the same Halfass it all, lean back on fame So I will be there the day that you’re replaced, The look of shellshock riddled over your face It’s not about us, and at the very end We’ll still lift up our rings again I see the things I can’t afford Delays my time, my life I move towards it’s not ok So tonight, I won’t be looking back Or focus on the past, so stay out of my fucking way My friends are by my side, we’ll fly out in the night Our shining lights will guide the way

about

The Corps Vancouver, British Columbia

As darkness slithered unnoticed into 2814 posing as music, few were aware of the ever dimming light. But there were four souls who saw through the lies. The gods they had served for years, still on the battlefield, will someday relent with pride and pass down the torch. These four will charge their rings and make a stand 'til the deaf hear the light. ... more
