Metanoia

1 – Remove the Pulse

What life have you built for yourself? 
What do you know about the heart you’ve never held?
 
Rip your heart from your chest; does it still beat in your hand?
The hurt we feel is led by the state of heart we live in.

2 - Break of Dawn

Fallen,
Fallen through hell and back again, recollect with full vision.
No rest each night, I am haunted by demons out of sight, assuring me that there is no way out.

All I have is measured by incapability.
No way out for me if I live free of a remedy.

How is this so hard to shake? I’m so willing to change.
What can I make of this life if I’m unable to break free?

My outcry for life is swallowed by the night sky.

I’m being hopeful for once; the sunrise I seek is moments from my eyes.
Gazing upon the sky, longing for the departure of night.

I’m being dragged away, into endless night without putting up a fight.
I owe it to myself to fight the oppression, enduring till morning, to stop it from starting.

Will I wallow in my self-defeat & paralyzing deceit?
Will I ever find peace of mind or more demons to come and destroy my life?

Facing my greatest fear, a fear of dying here.
Dying with no air in my lungs to spare.
Will I live to see the end?

Will I see the sun rise?

I’m being hopeful for once; the sunrise I seek is moments from my eyes.
Gazing upon the sky, longing for the departure of night.

Forever, looking towards the skyline.
 Forever, awaiting the sun to rise.
Waiting for the break of dawn.

3 – Further From Hate

You’ve lifted the greatest burden off my life.
Waking up, in company of all I love.
This grace is what I know; it shields me from the cold.
Each one of us has made the other whole.
The sun rests on my shoulder, it guides me on and on.
 I once resided on the other side of life and love.
Now peace has hold of me & I see clearer than ever before.
Hopeful for what my life has in store.

 My spirit, soul & mind have come alive.
Alive.
Alive inside.

Love, has its grip on me.
 
Two become one in His full sight.

My insecurity & vulnerability, wiped away.

 Each day I face, I am further from hate, compassion is at the forefront of my faith.
 
Waking up in company of all I love.
This grace is what I know; it shields me from the cold.
Each one of us has made the other whole.
Because of you, in this life, I am further from hate.
Overrun by grace.
 
Further from hate.

 Overrun by grace, further from…
 
I am ways away. 


I am further from hate.

4 – The Divide

I’m growing too weak to stand here on my own two feet.
 
And if I fall, how will I ever find the comfort?
And if I fall, will I ever return to you?
 
If I let this state of mine decide how I fumble through my life
All the pieces of my broken heart can’t build me a way to your blinding sight.
Cannot find me a way to all that is right.

 
I continue on, I know that I will never return.

Not now, not ever.
 
All my thoughts have been lost, taken by ghosts that haunt the living.
 Did I ever care about anything other than how I appear? 

I left who I am on the inside to die, to give the surface a fighting chance, to paint the picture of who I am.
 
All this fear I hid inside, you promised to take from me.
Perfect love is all I need to make me strong not weak.
 So take this burden from me, leaving me white as snow. 
Take this burden from me & make me, make me whole. 

All my faults are made strong, much harder to wipe from my conscience.
Reinforced by my own self-destruction.

Pick yourself up off the floor. 
Pick yourself up off the floor.

I continue on, I know that I will never return.
Not now, not ever.
 This isn’t a dream where I just wake up.

I’ve hit the bottom with no rope to pull me up. 
To get me out.
Get me out.

Caught on the other side of the divide.

5 – Mountainside

The same searchlights coming to find me, coming to save my life, are the same ones blinding my eyes, leaving me to die.
Forever lost on this mountainside.
 
The same searchlights coming to find me, coming to save my life, are the same ones blinding my eyes, leaving me to die.

Will I ever get off this mountainside?

6 – Unharness (Feat. Mattie Montgomery)

How can you lie through your teeth & force your ways on all you meet?
 I will resist you & take my stand against your schemes.

I’ve fought and lost a battle against you before, but I’ve returned twice as strong.
 With the armor and shield I’ve sought for so long. 

I will watch you fall, back in the hole from which you came from.
If you try to face me I will strike you down with the force of an army.

 All your hope is lost when you fight for your own cause, free of resolve. 
I’ll have no part of your lies & your wicked heart.
I’ll stand between you & all those that I love, with protection from above.

I will stand against your dark intent; I will fight till my dying breath. 
I have no intention of ever letting you past my defenses. 

With each stride I’m marching towards the front-line.
Face to face with your kind, opposing the ideals of the life I choose to lead. 

You’re making threats to me?

 I’ll destroy everything you’ve built up to cut me down. 
I’ll destroy everything you’ve built up to cut me down.
 
I will stand against your dark intent; I will fight till my dying breath.

I have no intention of ever letting you past my defenses.
 
My strength & approach is determined by how close I hold You.
 When You draw near I depart from the fear.
When I love as You love, my enemy is left with no ground to stand on. 
When You gave Your life for us, a life appeared before me.

When I love as You love, the enemy trembles at my feet.
 When I love as You love, my spirit has broken free.
 When I Love as You love, right now my life is made complete. 

You gave Your life for us, so that we can live in peace.

7 – Metanoia

What I know is that a life without love is no life at all.
Hope is the key to answering the call.

It’s written on your heart.

You find that all your hopes and dreams are dead and gone.
You think each person of value has left you alone.
You should know, there is no one in this world even worth counting on.
Besides, there’s a fire burning in your eyes that you cannot disguise, even if you tried.

There’s a purpose for your life you cannot hide, it’s written on your heart in the clearest of white.
Burning bright.

You should know, hope found its way, found its way to me, you too can be changed forever.

Will you remain as you are?

I’ve felt your pain, I know your pain, I’ve felt your pain.
We all make the same mistakes.
We all wear the scars we’ve won.
I too lived with the same uncertainty.
But hope found me. Hope found me. Now you know me.
Hope found a home in me. Hope found me, hope found its home.

You should know, hope found its way, found its way to me; you too can be changed forever.
It’s written on your heart.
You should know, hope found its way, found its way to me; you too can be changed forever.

Return to the start, with love in your heart.

8 – Stitched the Same (Feat. Kyle Tamosaitis)

These words have shaped me to this day, directed me to the path I now take, 
“You have encouraged me to lead the life I always wanted to lead”
I want to be, the inspiration that they need, there is no difference between you and me.
Aren’t we all woven together?
 
Aren’t we all tied in knots, because I know I’m this way, don’t you feel the same?
Meet me half way, I’ll take the stage you take the clay.
 
Such a humble exchange, we all find home in this place.
I hope you find what you are looking for.
But if you doubt, don’t be ashamed.
 
 
Because we’re all woven together and tonight we’re stitched the same.
Tonight we’re stitched the same
I’m just the same as you, all my struggles and mistakes.
 
So let’s hold each other up, because we know we’ve been made this way.

Cos we’re all woven together & tonight we’re stitched the same.

9 – White Flame

I have overcome.
Every wall, every inch of myself.
With no hold on the ways of this world.
I have conquered my inmost defeat.
Now death lays dying before my own two feet

Our path was always meant to meet.
Maybe not now but soon you’ll see.
This white-hot flame inside of me will scorch the earth & everything that stands in my way.

Overcome.

I am no mortal.
As long as this spark is within me.

As it engulfs me.
It changes everything.
My soul is on fire for reasons
Made certain by desires found in me.

But what choice did I have?
They engraved my back, with this detailed map, showing the plan that I should outlast.
I can feel it burning under my flesh, this feeling has averted me ’til this very second, this moment means everything.
I have come to life.

10 – Awaken The Heart

I remember the words you said to me, they still ring true as if you said them yesterday,
“Giving up is never an option. You may find it hard but they have forgotten, the love they have left is never far from them.”
 
Though this world has turned cold, I’ll let the warmth embrace me & lead me on my way home, through these streets I roam, thinking all along.
 
Awaken the heart, we have numbed ourselves to the concept of love.
We have forgotten, how to truly embrace, how to face each day.
 
I have given all of myself, to bridge the gap between heaven & hell.
All coming in none going out, stolen from the grips of the reaper himself.
I foresee pointing fingers & accusations aimed at me.
Our methods may not be of ease, but we’re spreading His love with our arms outreached.
 
Though this world has turned cold, I’ll let the warmth embrace me & lead me on my way home, through these streets I roam, thinking all along.
How can they not know? There’s a void in us all, waiting to be made full.
 
We have numbed ourselves to the concept of love.
We have forgotten what it means to say I’m alive and well today.
 
I know, I will never be alone.
His loving reach stretches past the farthest place I can go.

I will never be alone, assured to me by the love He has shown.
I will never be the same, my home, is found in His embrace.

Our goal is reached by showing love & compassion to those we meet.
An entire world at peace.
Covered by grace & completely set free.
Our home is found in His eternal embrace.
