Atlas

Released: 26/10/2012

01. Sparks
<p>Born of dust and stone<br /> Dead hearts, roaming a dying home<br /> Life leaves us all, white bones<br /> Upon the shores of time<br /> We are but sparks in a darkened world<br /> And yet some things were born to burn</p> <p>The napalm in your eyes<br /> Is all my cold heart needs<br /> If you bring the matches<br /> I’ll bring the gasoline<br /> I’m the same bad news as you<br /> You’re the same kind of fucked as me<br /> I’m the same bad news as you<br /> You’re the same, you’re the same as me</p>
02. Old Ghost / New Regrets
<p>Forever fucked<br /> We wage a war of suffering a deceit<br /> 100 thousand years of dreaming, drowned in a flood of fear and greed<br /> Precious heritage laid waste before the chainsaws snarling teeth<br /> Bleed the earth, bleed her ‘til her heart no longer beats</p> <p>And still we wonder why<br /> As the ground beneath our feet turns to dust<br /> The air we breathe, laced with poisons<br /> A legacy of disgust<br /> A legacy of sorrow<br /> So we’re born with nothing and we die alone</p> <p>We’re born with nothing<br /> And we die alone<br /> Regret is all we have<br /> Death is all we know</p> <p>Forever fucked<br /> Eradicate the truths of history<br /> Train our eyes, train our minds so we no longer see the casualties<br /> Countless cultures murdered, generations stolen and deceived<br /> No guilt to bear<br /> Born to consume, to breed, to deny all that keeps us free</p> <p>We’re born with nothing and we die alone<br /> Forever fucked</p>
03. Dream Run
<p>Do you remember all those nights<br /> When we stood side by side<br /> And we said, “we’ll save the goodbyes”<br /> The night is young<br /> We still have time</p> <p>In my dreams I see it ending<br /> I see the sky descending<br /> And I let the sadness empty from my heart<br /> ‘Cause in my dreams I feel I’m falling<br /> And I hear the darkness calling<br /> Don’t wake me up until the morning’s light</p> <p>Because I’ve never felt more alive</p> <p>Do you remember all those nights<br /> When we stood side by side<br /> And we said, “we’ll save the goodbyes”<br /> The night is young</p> <p>Well I never want to press rewind<br /> Every mistake that lead us here<br /> I wouldn’t change for anything<br /> Dear girl, there is a world that stands between us and them<br /> See this was never about giving up, just giving in</p> <p>Because you only live once<br /> But you spend your whole life dying<br /> So when it all comes crashing, know you’re not alone</p> <p>We welcome death with all our sins<br /> There is no fear when this life ends</p> <p>Do you remember</p> <p>Do you remember all those nights<br /> When we stood side by side<br /> And we said, “we’ll save the goodbyes”<br /> The night is young<br /> We still have time </p> <p>‘Cause I’ve never felt more alive</p>
04. Wild Eyes
<p>We build our dreams from the ashes of your nightmares<br /> Carry our father’s sins from the cradle to the grave<br /> We blaze our path through the darkness that you left us in<br /> Now we ride in the belly of the beast<br /> We are the diamonds that choose to stay coal<br /> A generation born to witness the end of the world</p> <p>Against the grain<br /> Against the odds<br /> Against the world<br /> Forever the underdogs</p> <p>We are the bastard sons<br /> We are the ones that refused to grow cold<br /> We are the thorn in your side<br /> We are the thieves in the night<br /> And we’re coming to take what’s ours</p> <p>No regrets<br /> We inherit the sins of the fathers, now reap the vengeance</p> <p>From the ashes of your nightmares<br /> From the cradle to the grave<br /> We blaze our path through the darkness that you left us in<br /> Now we ride in the belly of the beast<br /> We are the diamonds that choose to stay coal<br /> A generation born to witness the end of the world</p> <p>Born to witness the end of the world</p> <p>Viva the underdogs</p>
05. Dark Days
<p>What will you tell your children when they ask you “what went wrong”<br /> How can you paint a picture of a paradise lost<br /> To eyes that know only a wasteland<br /> How will you justify watching the world die</p> <p>The clock is ticking, can’t you feel our days are numbered<br /> Head first into disaster from which there will be no return<br /> With narrow minds we decimate our one true home<br /> Cast into oblivion, judgement is calling</p> <p>Behold the pale horse<br /> This is the funeral of the Earth<br /> Behold the pale horse<br /> This is the funeral</p> <p>The blind eye can no longer be cast<br /> The clock is ticking, there is no second chance</p> <p>The blind eye can no longer be cast<br /> There will be no future, if we can’t learn from our mistakes<br /> The clock is ticking, there is no second chance<br /> There will be no future, if we can’t learn</p> <p>A forced extinction closes out the age of apathy<br /> The final act, sacrifice the world’s ecology<br /> The death of beauty, the death of hope<br /> Cast before the throne of avarice, judgement is calling</p> <p>Behold the pale horse<br /> This is the funeral of the Earth<br /> Behold the pale horse<br /> This is the funeral </p> <p>The blind eye can no longer be cast<br /> There will be no future, if we can’t learn from our mistakes<br /> The clock is ticking, there is no second chance<br /> There will be no future, if we can’t learn</p> <p>I can’t watch it burn</p> <p>Behold the pale horse</p>
06. The River
<p>Follow your heart to the water<br /> Fill your pockets with stone<br /> Throw your arms around me<br /> Never let me go</p> <p>You were the first, you wouldn’t be the last<br /> What the river took, we could never replace<br /> And as the pain set in so did the realisation<br /> You were never coming home<br /> For nights we lay awake<br /> Wishing for answers, hoping against all hope<br /> And if love could change the course of fate<br /> These nights, we move mountains<br /> But as the news filtered down the line, the impact shook us<br /> Shook us to the core<br /> Loss struck like a dagger in our aching hearts</p> <p>So follow your heart to the water<br /> Fill your pockets with stone<br /> Throw your arms around me<br /> Never let me go</p> <p>It’s not the years in your life, it’s the life in your years</p> <p>Old soul, so it’s said<br /> The day we lost is the day I found regret<br /> Not in the waters that embraced you<br /> But in the wake your absence left</p> <p>Sink into me</p> <p>Hold out your hands, sink into me<br /> Hold out your hands, I’ll take you away<br /> Hold out your hands, surrender the weight of this world</p> <p>Follow your heart to the water<br /> Fill your pockets with stone<br /> Throw your arms around me<br /> Never let me go</p> <p>Never let me go</p>
07. Swing
<p>This soul was born for battle<br /> My heart was built for war<br /> These eyes see through the lies<br /> Filled with disgust</p> <p>Strip back the utopian rhetoric<br /> And you’ll find a sickness at the core<br /> A septic carcass rotting out<br /> Filled with disgust</p> <p>We are the dead<br /> Empty lives, empty heads<br /> Guilty is as guilty fucking does<br /> Filled with disgust</p> <p>All we have to believe are the lies that they feed us<br /> All we have to choose is the right to obey</p> <p>Pray this time will be our mark on history<br /> When the shadow games and agendas<br /> Are wiped the fuck away</p> <p>There is no such thing as different shades of truth<br /> It’s black or white, do or die<br /> Filled with disgust</p> <p>You tie your noose with your lies but the world keeps turning<br /> “Swing low” we cry but the world keep turning<br /> Turning without you</p> <p>It keeps turning without you</p> <p>‘Cause all we have to believe are the lies that they feed us<br /> Born for battle<br /> All we have to choose is the right to obey<br /> Built for war</p> <p>This soul was born for battle<br /> My heart was built for war</p> <p>Swing motherfuckers</p> <p>End it</p> <p>Built for war<br /> Built for fucking war</p>
08. The Slow Surrender
<p>You’ve got to fight for your life<br /> There is nothing to fear but fear itself<br /> The Devil dances in idle minds</p> <p>Fight for your life</p> <p>I won’t turn back now<br /> This will be no slow surrender<br /> I won’t turn back now<br /> Carpe Diem, straight for the throat</p> <p>Conflict, the all-consuming pain<br /> Time lost will never be regained<br /> Don’t waste your breath<br /> You can’t save your strength<br /> The battle rages in the here and now<br /> See every second that you waste<br /> Is time you’ll never live again</p> <p>Fight for your life<br /> Fight for your fucking life</p> <p>There is a price to pay<br /> Death is a heartbeat away</p> <p>The Devil dances in idle minds</p> <p>Fight for your life </p> <p>I won’t turn back now<br /> This will be no slow surrender<br /> I won’t turn back now<br /> Carpe Diem, I gotta go straight for the throat</p> <p>The Devil dances in idle minds</p>
09. Atlas
<p>My life is weathered down shipwreck<br /> Splitting at the seams, held together by memories and dreams<br /> Every face I have seen, a stitch on my mind<br /> On a shadow of a dream</p> <p>And my heart is its cargo, a worn out old thing<br /> Been dragged around this rock more times than you’d believe<br /> To the east I call home<br /> But the west, she is calling<br /> From the north, to the south<br /> Forever I’m drifting away<br /> With more hope than fear<br /> Put your head to my chest and you will hear</p> <p>The sound of it beating<br /> Is the sound of love leaving<br /> The sound of it beating<br /> Is the sound of the emptiness flooding in</p> <p>Flooding in<br /> It’s the sound of the emptiness flooding in</p> <p>And my life, it aches<br /> And my heart, it breaks<br /> And I just can’t shake the feeling all I am is sinking<br /> While one thousand eyes stare back at me<br /> But the ones that I’d die for are the ones I can’t see </p> <p>Flooding in</p> <p>It’s the sound of the emptiness</p>
10. Sleight of Hand
<p>No comfort</p> <p>Fear, in the face of the unknown<br /> Born to die in a lonely world<br /> Hostility, breeds within the void<br /> Left by the loss of understanding<br /> Hatred, the true face of ignorance<br /> Force-fed to the masses with the promise of salvation<br /> Knowledge controlled, power withheld<br /> In the name of one, let all blood spill</p> <p>There is no god, that could love this world</p> <p>I find no comfort<br /> In a life lived on my knees<br /> No comfort<br /> Devine judgement, I could never believe<br /> No comfort<br /> I could never believe</p> <p>To live a life without regret<br /> Is it not enough<br /> To love, and to be loved</p> <p>Nothing lasts forever<br /> Nothing lasts<br /> Superstition rules in the land of the weak</p> <p>Fear, in the face of the unknown<br /> Born to die in a lonely world<br /> Hostility, breeds within the void<br /> Left by the loss of understanding<br /> Hatred, the true face of ignorance<br /> Force-fed to the masses with the promise of salvation<br /> Knowledge controlled, power withheld<br /> In the name of one, let all blood spill</p> <p>There is no god<br /> That could love this world</p> <p>I find no comfort</p>
11. Snake Oil and Holy Water
<p>You want a piece of my mind, there is no peace to find<br /> This is all of your doubt repaid in kind<br /> I am alone in crowded rooms<br /> I am a ghost in forgotten tombs<br /> Widow maker, you’re no company to keep</p> <p>‘Cause you can fool some people, sometimes<br /> But you can’t fool the world for the rest of your life<br /> You can fool some people, sometimes<br /> But you can’t fool the world</p> <p>Nobody notices, nobody cares<br /> The curtain falls to no one, no where<br /> Nobody notices, nobody cares<br /> As the curtain falls</p> <p>Soulless, spineless<br /> Cut from the beggar’s cloth<br /> You fill your skull with their shit ‘til it runs from your mouth<br /> Heartless, carcass<br /> I’ve seen more life in dead men’s eyes<br /> I’ve heard more truths alone with the night</p> <p>And I’d rather believe in nothing than believe in a fucking lie<br /> I’d sooner fail one thousand times than regret I never tried</p> <p>‘Cause you can fool some people, sometimes<br /> But you can’t fool the world for the rest of your life<br /> You can fool some people, sometimes<br /> But you can’t fool the world</p> <p>You can’t fool us all<br /> You howl at the world, but speak a dead language<br /> You’re selling your soul, but no one is buying<br /> You pray to your gods of fashion and industry<br /> Heads in the clouds, but you live on your fucking knees</p> <p>Nobody notices, nobody cares<br /> The curtain falls to no one, no where<br /> Nobody notices, nobody cares<br /> As the curtain fucking falls</p> <p>Soulless, spineless<br /> Cut from the beggar’s cloth<br /> You fill your head with their shit ‘til it runs from your mouth<br /> Heartless, carcass<br /> I’ve seen more life in dead men’s eyes<br /> I’ve heard more truths alone with the night</p> <p>No peace to find</p>
12. Blue and the Grey
<p>Dear sky,<br /> Dear sky don’t cry for me, be the hope I could never reach<br /> Cold sea, please don’t let me sink<br /> Wrap your arms around me and carry me home</p> <p>I stood at the shore and spoke to the ocean<br /> I stood in the water and let my guts spill<br /> I said “You and me, we’re not so different, I see my reflection in all that you do”</p> <p>We both keep our secrets<br /> We’re both, oh so blue<br /> My heart is full of darkness<br /> I know that yours is too</p> <p>I sat on the rooftop and screamed at the sky<br /> I sat on the edge until I knew deep inside<br /> Like the sky, I will always be empty<br /> The horizon, my love, forever just out of reach</p> <p>We both keep our secrets<br /> We’re both, oh so blue<br /> My heart is full of darkness<br /> I know that yours is too</p> <p>Distance was born when the sea and the sky grew apart<br /> Loneliness was born the day I let you go<br /> I let you go</p> <p>So now I stand at the shore and speak to the ocean<br /> I stand in the water and let my guts spill</p> <p>We both keep our secrets<br /> We’re both, oh so blue<br /> My heart is full of darkness<br /> I know that yours is too</p> <p>Dear sky,<br /> Dear sky don’t cry for me, be the hope I could never reach<br /> Cold sea, please don’t let me sink<br /> Wrap your arms around me and carry me home</p> <p>Dear Sky</p>
