Track Name: In Retrospect
Foundations laid
Fight to root the ground
Secure our place
[Against hostile skies]

Daybreak brought my release
Then with the winds of change
Brought me to my feet
[Left my escape behind]

Reached for the skies
Toward the suns embrace
Let the light guide
[As a beacon fire]

Felt the depth
Of my first breath
As I drew in
[For those first steps]

Steps were taken without a sense of trepidation
The blind were leading the blind to uncertainty
Delusions took control

A fragile grasp, believed to grip like a vice
One Lesson, to learn, the beginning of our
realisation

We allowed this to be about pride
Rather than, the search for a sense of direction
This belief that we were on the right path
Our branches already showed the cracks

But we're blind to this
We failed to see
what was stood before us
Continued on
What felt like solid ground
No sense it would give way

We allowed ourselves to wander
aimlessly when darkness fell
we had to trust
Those who lit the way
All sense had broken down before
A trail had been laid at our feet
We had to trust
That we could succeed

We allowed this to be about our pride
Rather than, the search for a sense of direction
This belief that we were on the right path
Our branches already showed the cracks

But we're blind to this
We failed to see
what was stood before us
Continued on
What felt like solid ground
No sense it would give way
Track Name: Bitter Ends
Just one touch
This bark crumbles away
As the cracks and weaknesses
Take their toll

These boughs, Creak
Beneath the weight of our world
I thought we'd built up the strength to
Hold aloft

Too much
We had
Taken on
Too much
This was
Too much

Earth beneath us
Erodes away to sand
Letting itself be
Carried away
Lost this foothold
The ground beneath us
Cannot prevent
Sudden collapse

In the passing years
We'd come to rely on
This deluded belief
Our roots held strong

Far too close to see
What was plain from a distance
Could this be the end?
Of our chance to aspire

Take a good look
This could be the last chance
To bear witness
To this final crisis

Faltered
A stumble that caused us to lose our way
In the dark woods
We continue our search to find a way
To the sunlight
Found ourselves buried deep in the branches
That have fallen away

We have let this go on too long!
Take a good look
We had let these days slide between our fingers
Take a good look
This could be the last chance
To bear witness
To this final crisis

We had frozen to the ground
Stood by as winter took its hold
These would be our final day
Nothing would be the same

Nothing would be the same
Track Name: Overcome
These regrets, our mistakes
Form the skin and the bone
Of yesterday’s ghosts
That won't stop haunting me
Hoping for solace of sleep
But ended accepting the oncoming night

Inspired by warmth of first light allows me to see the faults of our naivety
As the weight of the day seeps in through my eyes
My reason and resolve are crushed by reality

Today hindsight dictates our direction, [Our backs against the sun]
No longer lead by empty obsessions
This turning point, this sudden release [Towards the second storm]
Has made me question who I am

I lost a part of me
My mind it will not let me sleep
My body will not rest
Till I can feel my heart complete

My sleep it will not bring me peace
My body will not rest
Till I can find maturity

Inspired by warmth of first light allows me to see the faults of our naivety
As the weight of the day seeps in through my eyes
My reason and resolve are crushed by reality

New roots run deep, to anchor foundations.
Down

Fight to overcome
The hardships we will bare
Impressions on the grain,

Knots in our memory, remind me of the sacrifices made

An endless reach for the horizon

My mind it never let me sleep
My body could not rest
Until I felt my heart complete
My sleep it never brought me peace
My body could not rest
But now I'm found
Track Name: Still Burning
Endeavour, to evolve, become all we must be
Forward into this brand new day
Fingers touch, our dreams, they're within reach
Just take the last step

A lifetime has been spent
Standing in our own way

This is our time, groundwork makes us stronger
Take what is ours, Leave failings behind

Finally we grow
From the shadows we have cast
No longer is circumstance our excuse
As our lungs fill to burst with anticipation
Leading us to a future we have
Put our lives behind

Weight of dark skies, has been lifted
Sweet respite, now we are free

Fall from grace, allowed us to build
Start again, goal is in sight

Basking in, Purpose, thought to be lost
Hidden by, the canopy we have escaped
Daylight giving us the drive to carry on
To take the last step

A lifetime has been spent
Standing in our own way

Optimist, I'm forever the optimist
With a future that’s ours for the taking
We look toward, what has been laid
In front of us, this scene is picture perfect
My calling, I'm here for my calling
This is everything, that I've spent my life building towards

Focus

Finally we grow
From the shadows we have cast
No longer is circumstance our excuse
As our lungs fill to burst with anticipation
Leading us to a future we have
Put our lives behind

Fall from grace, allowed us to build
Start again, goal is in sight

We are reborn
