Hollow World 04:03
We long to feel less empty inside our hollow world These hollow days bring so much hurt We keep our beds for living that echo in the dirt why do we keep this world under Did we all try? Is this goodbye now? Oh, my hollow world What do they mean, all these empty words I can’t stay, you must reject us first We long to feel more pity inside this hollow world Such hollow deeds just only hurt We lost a real connection, we raised a false ego What did we do? What do we know? Did we all try? Is this goodbye now? Oh, my hollow world What do they mean, all these empty words I can’t stay, you must reject us first And then it came to nothing The sound that shook us all That begat the fear and then the fall Oh, my little earth shaker That fell from the sky We thought you were so divine Did we all try? Is this goodbye? Goodbye, sunshine Hello, dark skies So long, clean air Do you care?
2.
Everything that we’ve seen Is not lost, I still feel Complications do arise Day to day, we survived A Darker time, a darker space, What did you see? Are we too late?
3.
We’re all out of time To face our darkest crimes, The court and jury Have now come for me Midnight has now come We are all now undone Wrong as we may be There is no light you see We’ve turned a blind eye
4.
Land of Dead 01:49
Land of Dead, land of endless space Land of fire, the sky burns brighter Empty love, empty space Are we all losing grace We can live here no more Serpent skin you’ve shed again Stories grow but the truth will show What’s the use of hiding here Can you smell the stench of fear Your eyes do not lie “Goodbye, blue sky So long, clean air Do you even care?”
5.
How do you keep the light alive how do you keep the flame burning so bright? Spirit come to me I am done, Come take me away to the one Hollow world, Hollow grace, We will try to refill it, with emptiness within it Hollow world, we can’t stay You must learn to reject us The tide is now upon us The sun is gone and now the game is all over As the cracks began to appear I could not bring myself to face all my fears I saw that your house was on fire Oh, Goodbye, my hollow world
6.
I’ve been down this road before I’ve seen this place that we seek It’s not what we were told This place is far too cold… They had come calling you see There had been people before There was space within The walls then kept risin… The land of dead keeps a call: We cry for Harmonia! How can we fill a space With air we cannot breathe.. For all the ghosts that we keep We cry for Harmonia! We will we will rebuild We will start something new... How do we keep from the cold, How do we keep from the pain Please tell us how to live Please help us find a way… Dream dream dream...

Harmonia 05:11
All this hate you bring is just white noise Toxic to the bone, devoid of poise Love from you is not too far from war Love is not a thing that you care for Harmonia Thought I knew ya But I guess I was foolish To think that you had it in ya Harmonia, I see through you I have tried to be more than what you are In all honesty, it was not so hard I no longer feel pain anymore Knowing what you are and what I'm for Harmonia Thought I knew ya But I guess I was foolish To think that you had it in ya Harmonia, I see through you and what you are Now I know your game I no longer need to feel ashamed Are we empty, are we hollow Is there meaning in who we follow They’ll forsake you, then reject you They forgot you, never knew you... Harmonia...
8.
I See You 05:28
I see you standing in the shadows Guarding all your dying flowers Withering like your soul I see you and your silent actions Spreading lies as a distraction From your eyes and the truth How do you pretend you just don’t care It’s as if I’m just a stranger there I can see you changing from what you thought to what you are I see you holding onto anger Hate only brings you nowhere Loneliness as your vice I see you. How do you pretend you just don’t care It’s as if I’m just a stranger there I can see you changing from what you thought to what you are now Not even a child now Can have an ego that’s so strong You think you’re so highbrow Oh my my... Look at these lies That you base your life Cut all your ties Oh my my...
9.
Are you waiting for the clampdown? They’re coming for us, we go underground Will they tear us from our dad and mum in the night Just what do you think that we are? Feel the cold hand of the clampdown Where walls and borders break common ground Will they take away what you thought was great in your mind? How can you sleep while they cry? They have come so very far All they need are open arms Will you be the one they turn to? Will the world still look upon you? Are you working for the clampdown?
10.
I don’t need to be a hero I just want to be where love grows Nothing left for me to hold to They’ve taken all I had and you Fox on the run They won’t catch me A war is to be won I am not one to be bothered But they came and took my honour I don’t need to be a hero So I leave behind this sorrow Fox on the run They won’t catch me A war is to be won...
11.
Come back home, babe, it’s on fire It’s dark outside, the flames grow higher In that place, in that time Did I think we’d make it My love awaits me, cold and tired The children laugh but cry for a father What did I do, did I stay When the choice was given What did we lose Like this house on fire What path did I choose In this house on fire I don’t want life to be forsaken All I have can just be taken In the blink of an eye Does it all really matter What did we lose Like this house on fire What path did I choose In this house on fire I know what I did was wrong Sometimes my ego can be oh so strong Was I blind to the hurt you suffered You know that is not who I am I’ve come home to start all over From that time, in that place Can I be forgiven What did we lose Like this house on fire What path did I choose In this house on fire What did we do In this house on fire Our love is true

A Way Home 03:14
I did not know where I was until I found a way home Life was a loss and my mind wasn't much to speak of Time, wait for me Love, please don't leave me Lord, what a mess “I’m so lost” I confessed on my way home To no one that's there in my mind I wouldn't dare to speak to Time, wait for me Love, please don't leave me Your pale blue eyes Lost in your stare Please still be there Because I am lost here without you Why would you wait for fool that was chasing his shadow I guess that love is real if two souls can find a way home
