Track Name: Cassandra
I would be reprieved
If I dared not speak the name
Of whom we all can say we came

When we look around and see
The changing tides here from before
An open field left to explore

Starlight led her gracefully
She dared to be a dreamer
Where she found great remembrance

I would be reprieved
If I dared not speak the name
Of whom we all can say we came: Cassandra
Track Name: Brighter Sights
Born with an arrow placed on my map
Step to new progression
Burning the midnight oil
Pressing through the find the new unknown
Locked in strict succession

Destined to grow beyond the thorns

Passing of time
Forming thoughts appealing to a brighter sight
The simple sign
Bringing heartfelt spirit to my maiden flight

Growing a hunger for what was
Thriving with expression
Body and soul departed
Severed from the artists that we are
Lost in swift suppression

Building the strength
Finding the courage to break free

Passing of time
Forming thoughts appealing to a brighter sight
The simple sign
Bringing heartfelt spirit to my maiden flight

Casting aside
What we consider right
Grasping my dream and holding on

Passing of time
Forming thoughts appealing to a brighter sight
The simple sign
Bringing heartfelt spirit to my maiden flight
Track Name: Tensions
Thoughts rise persistently
I’m plagued with distanced destiny
Words form in black and white
To fill the page, expand our sight

Now find your place
My ears are burning
Can’t spend forever in the clouds
Again
There is no purpose
Neglecting what has been endowed

Wings meant to fly
Crumble in the winds
And paralyze
I fall in circles
Spinning out with only
Lifeless eyes

Withstanding all our grief
A whispered voice that screams belief
Guiding your flower’s bloom
Is how you’ll be remembered true

Dismiss, provoke
It gets you nowhere
Simple child it knocks you to the ground
For once
Won’t you breathe clean air
Waves you make will crush you till you drown

Wings meant to fly
Crumble in the winds
And paralyze
I fall in circles
Spinning out with only
Lifeless eyes

Crystal skies
Seen through tyrant eyes
A father’s caustic hand
Feeding into blind command

Nothing to sculpt who we are
Sew up our broken hears
Grieving
Worthless the pen in my hand
With no one who understands
My world

(Cassandra you’ve fought me hard
Only yourself in mind
So heed my words
This story may not end in kind)

Wings meant to fly
Crumble in the winds
And paralyze
I fall in circles
Spinning out with only
Lifeless eyes
Track Name: Lights Fade Dark
The last note has rung
I’m left alone
Last words that stung
Won’t fade, no

I wanna find my way home
But without you that is hard enough
You always guide me
Need to walk but can’t stop falling
Into the rough
Alone

Lights fade dark
But the stars don’t shine forever
This missing piece has left me empty
I’ll fill that space
With a purpose laced endeavor
So you’ll always be here, with me

An empty shell
Left here to find
A bigger place to fill to put my mind at ease
And I know too well
What you wanted all along
And it brings me to my knees

You’ve always told me who to follow
My resentment turned acceptance now
Your words compel me
I never thought I would be free here
Standing my ground
As one

Lights fade dark
But the stars don’t shine forever
This missing piece has left me empty
I’ll fill that space
With a purpose laced endeavor
So you’ll always be here, with me

Save me won’t you
Help me to hear you
Call my name
Am I to blame?
Hold me and tell me
You’ll be here
When I awake
Too much to take

Lights fade dark
But the stars don’t shine forever
This missing piece has left me empty
I’ll fill that space
With a purpose laced endeavor
So you’ll always be here, with me
Track Name: All the Signs
Marching strait in line
She’s practical and sound
Now moving past the fight
Ends to which she’d strive
Are buried in the ground
She left them all behind

Neglect the past
Receding back
Desire stirring

Closing off the roads
There must have been a reason
A cause she can’t decode

Forget move on
A life redrawn
While hope still lingers

The world is changing through her eyes
The coming age will set the stage
A passage into life
Moving ahead of callow times
She’ll leave her dreams for shallow means
Her heart resenting all the signs
Track Name: Broken Progress
Here ready for my turn
To find what I may learn
When digging through the ruins of yesterday
Each writing lends a sign
Of a passion lost in time
Where freed was one simple step a brush stroke away

Carved in the wall
The essence that dissolves
A broken progress
Wasting our mistakes
Look back in time
The meaning’s left behind
Regressed unnoticed
Tensions ready to break

My silence can’t abide
With the voice that screams inside
For change to rise but won’t without a push
I’ll take my pen in hand
One chance to take command
This faceless ghost will tear this broken system apart

Carved in the wall
The essence that dissolves
A broken progress
Wasting our mistakes
Look back in time
The meaning’s left behind
Regressed unnoticed
Tensions ready to break

Cast to the side
Only sought to remember the spite
As we fray
There’s no growing this way

Forced perspective
Still reflective
Careless and disgraced
Masked existence
Sparks resistance
Clio steps ahead and takes my place

Carved in the wall
The essence that dissolves
A broken progress
Wasting our mistakes
Look back in time
The meaning’s left behind
Regressed unnoticed
Tensions ready to break
Track Name: Missing Piece
Catch those eyes they wander off
A hint I’d best be taking
Feel my breath it’s getting soft
The world around me shaking

Empty promises recurring
I fear are coming
Fated happiness is stirring
A chance to take the best

Now that I’ve seen the sign
And I know it’s right
I’ll take that leap
With the part of me
That I know is true
I will follow you
As a beacon left to find

Standing just within my reach
Your face lets time draw slower
Growing closer through my dreams
Your light that blooms a flower

Broken memories collecting
As my defection
Perfect harmony reflecting
The missing piece I’d lost

Now that I’ve seen the sign
And I know it’s right
I’ll take that leap
With the part of me
That I know is true
I will follow you
As a beacon left to find

Holding the truth from you is
Scolding my tainted conscience needs
Healing the trust I’ve broken
Revealing the hallowed face I bear!

Now that I’ve seen the sign
And I know it’s right
I’ll take that leap
With the part of me
That I know is true
I will follow you
As a beacon left to find
Track Name: Scorn
Public displaying image of perfection
An undeniable new ploy
To feed the narcissistic
Wash the paint
Remove all of you that creates, and go
‘Till there’s all just skin to the bone

Feel the same, with a common name
These cloaks presented just to
Help remove the shame
Presently, wrecked society
Mimics the figure of the
Righteous royalty

Mold unconscious minds
Reflections shattered, left behind
To toe the line
Is this what’s left, is there no more?
To define the constant scorn

Create a process picking out the weakness
To set the limits
And deny the individual
To find the right
Identity, no need to fight
Betrayed these gowns are what’s left of the array

Mold unconscious minds
Reflections shattered, left behind
To toe the line
Is this what’s left, is there no more?
To define the constant scorn

Save the goddess we crave
Perpetual slaves
And feel ourselves pray
Until we can break away

(Be free
To fill the page
Express your rage
And Clio will lead the way)

Mold unconscious minds
Reflections shattered, left behind
To toe the line
Is this what’s left, is there no more?
To define the constant scorn
Track Name: Beyond the Fold
First there was one, just a flare
A light passing by
They’ve grown to convene as an army
Awaiting my cry

Past my intentions
New sights are far beyond the fold
Calm breathing deeper
Waiting to surge

Restless waters a tide just waiting to turn
Swept asunder
Rising numbers heal societal burn
Grasping blind

Gracing the world with my thoughts
And divinity
My disposition will lend to
A new history

Poised with conviction
Born, bred and build to take this on
Feed my addiction
Waiting to purge

Restless waters a tide just waiting to turn
Swept asunder
Rising numbers heal societal burn
Grasping blind
Falling faster we rip each thread at the seams
Cut to pieces
Black clouds will form surround the regime
One last time

Tame expression hides my rage
Forced deceit a weakness to your game

Restless waters a tide just waiting to turn
Swept asunder
Rising numbers heal societal burn
Grasping blind
Falling faster we rip each thread at the seams
Cut to pieces
Black clouds will form surround the regime
One last time
Track Name: Oblivion
The fuel is burning as
The fighters emerge
To find their grasp holding stronger
But not quite so firm
Few battles won but
The war is not over
It’s time for us to strike and
Take what we’ve earned

Questions need answers
I can’t let this wait anymore
My eyes my clear to find
What I’m looking for

A stormy future from
A dark grisly past
We’re losing sight on the verge of
The sweet taste unknown
The net has fallen where
The spikes creep up closer
Where must I draw the line
To break through the flow

Must I die?
To be a martyr a savior
And stop this behavior
End my life
And leave my followers fighting
A storm re-igniting

Questions need answers
I can’t let this wait anymore
My eyes my clear to find
What I’m looking for
Solutions brewing
A path of totality
Sequester fear providing
A silent relief

Hiding a face ill take to my grave
Shining lifeless eyes
Clio will die now facing the waves
Cassandra will rise

Lights fade back into the dark
Ceding my innocence to reignite the spark
Now my place is watching from afar
Facing oblivion following my star

Questions need answers
I can’t let this wait anymore
My eyes my clear to find
What I’m looking for
Track Name: Clio
In my tearing eyes
Shines a spark of love prolonged
A binding knot we held so strong

She freed our prisoned dreams
The crowning sacrifice she made
To change the winds and clear the haze

I won’t sleep tonight
If I dare not shout the name
Of whom we bury here today: Cassandra
