We've been force-fed the trauma as reality consumes our lives
No greater burdens than the ones we face today
The hardest part is living in sanctity

This life is unforgiving, and with our hearts it grows darker than these days
Faithless, we've become, under the weight of devotion

What will bring us hope?
What will bring us home?

From birth, cast into light
Reformed in the shadow of man
Memories in falsehood, though I am anew

Salvation is wearing thin in a life filled with conformity

I promised myself one certainty - to dwell in solitude

I'm not ready to make a change
I'm not ready to sell myself
I'm not ready to commend my defeat to a world far less revived

Battling the way of the world, falling short of all aspirations Reaching my end with conviction
And desperate for answers, I'll be sinking
I'll be sinking in solitude while you tower in my defeat


from The Fragility of Circumstance, track released December 22, 2016
