Album: Call To The Void (2018)

Ashes For Air:

 

Oh, every breath I take
Feels like I’m drowning
When the world is overwhelming me
There’s no running from myself
There’s no hiding from whats inside of me
Just say those words
Over and over again

I’m not alone
I can’t give in
Even though the world
Is growing dim
I still see light inside me
Is it hope or the end

It all turns to grey
And there is no reprieve
When fear becomes the comfort
And the solace you need
It tries to drag you under

I’m not alone
I can’t give in
Even though the world
Is growing dim
I still see light inside me
Is it hope or the end

(Is it hope or the end)

I just want an end
I just want an out
To breathe in air again

There is no silence
As the fear becomes
Chaos spreading into what we love
Please just let the air into my lungs
Just let me breathe

I’m not alone
I can’t give in
Even though the world
Is growing dim
I still see light inside me
Is it hope or the end

I’m not alone
I can’t give in
Even though the world
Is growing dim
I still see light inside me
Is it hope or the end

I just want an end
I just want an out
To breath in air again

There is no silence
As the fear becomes
Chaos spreading into what we love
Please just let the air into my lungs

Just let me breathe

Whispers:

 

My actions speak for themselves
And I’ve meant ever fucking word I’ve said
I won’t let whispers
Define the kind of man I am
They’ll use your failures
To try to justify their own
But the words of weak men
Never changed the world

Just ignore the voices inside your head
What did you expect from the dead
From the dead
With every muscle ache
And every bone you break
This is a fight for your life

A fight for your life
Ah

When these words fall upon your ears
Will you think of every moment
That you spent telling yourself
There’s nothing inside of you to fear
When wisdom fails you
When every road comes to an end
I hope you find the strength
I’ve always seen in you

Just ignore the voices inside your head
What did you expect from the dead
From the dead
With every muscle ache
And every bone you break
This is a fight for your life

Just ignore the voices inside your head
With every muscle ache
And every bone you break
This is a fight for your life

Distant Waves (Feat. Bjorn “Speed” Strid)

 

(Matt)
It swept across the sky
That early morning

(Bjorn)
And my hollow eyes went blind
No time for yearning

(Bjorn)
Can’t keep wondering what I did to rely

(Matt)
On burdens carried by others

(Bjorn)
Now let me steer this ship until I die

(Bjorn)
You’ve burned it all this time

(Matt)
Your machine is in fear

(Both)
From the day you were born

(Bjorn)
Born!
Now you hear my call, I’m falling
Falling all the way
If you turn to me while crawling
To the place of secret ways
Do you hear the call Im longing
For a place with distant waves

(Bjorn)
We turned our backs on the truth

(Matt)
Never deserving

(Bjorn)
Of the moments we had shared

(Matt)
Caught in a whirlwind

(Matt)
I saw it in your eyes
I knew we’d reached the point

(Bjorn)
We couldn’t ever look back
We’ve learned the ways of wrath

(Bjorn)
Can’t keep wondering what I did to rely

(Matt)
On burdens carried by others

(Bjorn)
Now let me steer this ship until I die

(Both)
Til’ I die

(Bjorn)
Now you hear my call, I’m falling
Falling all the way
If you turn to me while crawling
To the place of secret ways
Do you hear the call Im longing
For a place with distant waves

(Bjorn)
Distant Waves

(Matt)
Distant Waves

(Matt)/(Bjorn)
I’m rising up this time
This time
I’m rising up this time
This time
I’m rising up this time
This time
through the hands of time

(Bjorn)/(Matt)
I’m rising up this time
This time
I’m rising up this time
This time
I’m rising up this time
through the hands of time

(Bjorn)
Now you hear my call, I’m falling
Falling all the way
If you turn to me while crawling
For a place with distant waves

Oh

The Fall:

 

Oh I’m embracing the fall now
Reliving feelings I’ve forgotten were there
The satisfaction of indifference
Betrayed by lies
When I tell myself that I don’t care

Peel back the layers
And let it all show
Scars are reminders
Of what we’ve been through
It’s not about the fall
If you get back up
Tell the whole damn world
That enough is enough

When you find yourself
Slipping through the cracks
When you feel like your invisible
No, this isn’t the first time
You’ve felt like giving up
And when it matters most
You’re gonna rise above

This world can be cruel
But it shows us
What we are made of
What we are made of

Peel back the layers
And let it all show
Scars are reminders
Of what we’ve been through
It’s not about the fall
If you get back up
Tell the whole damn world
That enough is enough

I want these words to heal you
To show you that I still care
I want the strength to move you
Past everything you fear

Peel back the layers
And let it all show
Scars are reminders
Of what we’ve been through
It’s not about the fall
If you get back up
Tell the whole damn world
That enough is enough
Enough is enough
Tell the whole damn world
Tell the whole damn world
That enough is enough

Broken By Design:

 

In remorse
We never seem to
Let anything go
We planted the seeds
But now we fear
To see how they grow
Without the light
Without a guide how will you know
The safest place is one
Without the truth or purpose
So where will you go
When the line is drawn
When the bar is set
Will you be more or are you drawn to be
Something less
Is this damnation
Your salvation

I’ve seen it all
We’re meant to fly
Yet their hands
Are holding us down
I’ve seen it all
We are the flames
That will burn them to the ground

In disguise
I’ve seen the liars
And the bitter men rise
Proclaiming truth
While they elevate
All that we despise
I will see the end
Of everything the wretched built
The will to fail is something
I could never accept
So, now, will you avert your eyes
Knowing the ones who need the most
Will have to pay the price
The cowardice in silence
Should he enough to ignite
The hearts of every man
Who want to see the broken rise

I’ve seen it all
We’re meant to fly
Yet their hands
Are holding us down
I’ve seen it all
We are the flames
That will burn them to the ground

Now is not the time for apathy
When we turn a blind eye
We allow this evil to be

I’ve seen it all
We’re meant to fly
Yet their hands
Are holding us down
I’ve seen it all
We are the flames
That will burn them to the ground

I’ve seen it all
I’ve seen it all
We’re meant to fly
Yet their hands
Are holding us down
I’ve seen it all
We are the flames
And we will burn them to the ground

Paramnesia:

 

I require more than simple answers
Feeding the beast until it gets bigger
The signs all point to a cause
But you wont hear it
There’s nothing above
And yet you all fear it
Now

I’ve seen the end of the road
And it leads to nowhere
So why keep running in circles
If you want the truth it’s right here

Right here

Just keep telling yourself
That you must follow
Rules meant to control
And leave you hollow
Now

I’ve seen the end of the road
And it leads to nowhere
So why keep running in circles
If you want the truth it’s right

I’ve watched us kill each other
And kill ourselves
Looking above for answers
The truth you find
Will come from the inside of you
Just reach for it
We’ve always been the gods
We created
We’ve always been the gods
We created

I’ve seen the end of the road
And it led to nowhere
So why keep running in circles
If you want the truth it’s right here

———————————————————————————————————–

Fear Is Failure:

 

I see a part of you
In everything that I do
A Shattered emphasis
Of what I’ve succumbed to
I will reach up and grab
This world by the throat
My time is right now
Just try and stop me

It’s in the air
Now found what I came for
And I’m not gonna’ let this go so easy
And with this new foundation
I will open my eyes
Open my eyes

I stand for nothing
I want what I deserve
A light
A chance to fight for this
If you don’t like it
Just try and stop me
I said if you don’t like it
Just try and stop me

I’m tired
Broken
Sick of beating my head
Into every wall
That seeks to enclose me
Fury, the fire
Forces me to remove
Everyone that stands in my way

It’s in the air
Now found what I came for
And I’m not gonna’ let this go so easy
And with this new foundation
I will open my eyes
Open my eyes

It’s in the air
Now found what I came for
And I’m not gonna’ let this go so easy
And with this new foundation
I will open my eyes
Open my eyes
Open my eyes

Abomination:

 

This darkness beckons me
The air is tense and black
Is all I see
Through eyes once bright
And full of hope
Now a broken soul
With no way to cope

I peel the skin from my face
And watch my bones turn to dust
No sound just silence
Without a sense that I can trust

I am the damned
Swimming through the echoes
The abomination within you
I am the wretched
Suffocating silence
And I will always be a part of you

I can feel the hope
So sweet so foreign in here
My desperate hands
Finding nothing but air
The moment is fading
Along with the feeling
I’m falling now
Yet I know not where

I am the damned
Swimming through the echoes
The abomination within you
I am the wretched
Suffocating silence
And I will always be a part of you

I am darkness
I am anger
I am hatred
I am malice

I am the Abomination
I am the wretched silence
I am the abomination
I am the wretched silence
I am the Abomination
I am the wretched silence
I am the Abomination
I am the wretched silence

Rise Of The Eidolon:

 

Under cover of night
Their hands will reach out
To threaten the things
We are sworn to imbue
And the voices will raise
Sounding the reign of the lifeless
Damned from the grave
And the ground
Will shake with boots of the righteous
Here to protect the
Innocent
We will not let this land be forsaken
May the gods have mercy
On the ones we stand against

When the night
Comes take us
We will fight
When the dead
Start to rise
We will put them back down
No longer victim to the fear
When the light
Starts to fade
We’ll rise

With a thunderous crash
Metal on metal
As demons collapse
And fire takes hold
Of their rotting flesh
Lighting the way
For the bravest of us all

When the night
Comes take us
We will fight
When the dead
Start to rise
We will put them back down
No longer victim to the fear
When the light
Starts to fade
We’ll rise

Now, in the wake of all we’ve lost
Will we find ourselves
In the presence of champions
And victorious
