Try to breathe under the water Try to live under no sky Breathe the ashes, smoke and cinder Bow to hegaiamas The kings of old, they bleed through my skin Bleed through space and time gone cold A crown of stillness burning through the aftermath Designed to suffer in silence, is this the life that you’re asking for? Our voices caught in the distance Bleeding, screaming, cynical All I can see through this madness In desperation forevermore A warning call for resistance Hoping, crying, take me home I can feel it haunting me, I can feel it haunting me In darkness we bleed the fear of loneliness and what is yet to be In dreaming we see that from a window to a distant memory we fly We’ve been trying to live in peace Beyond this blue horizon All I ever tried to build A kingdom for our souls to dream And yet we suffer in silence, it’s not the life we were asking for Our voices lost in the distance Bleeding, screaming, cynical We’re living trapped in this madness In desperation forevermore And now we long for resistance Hoping, falling but still In darkness we bleed the fear of loneliness and what is yet to be In dreaming we see that from a window to a distant memory we fly In the darkest corners of my mind There lie the shadows that keep pulling me inside And I can see them every time I close my eyes The lights won't open and their voices keep on calling me Haunting me I can feel them haunting me forever Rememory In darkness we bleed the fear of loneliness and what is yet to be In dreaming we see that from a window of a distant memory we fly

I woke up inside an unspoiled land The air was clear I stared into the sun and I felt free Had a dream of when it all began Blackness all around me stars like little grains of sand It felt so real Like coming home We're flowing under the tides of starlit skies We’re glowing under a light that keeps on Pulling us to the ground In space and time we’re floating and what we’ve found A land where we’re all one It keeps on pulling us to the ground In space and time we’re floating and what we’ve found A land where we’re all You were there we’re lying side by side Try to hold my breath and take it all inside So much to grasp, so much to learn Felt the world was pumping in my chest Like I’m giving birth to all that is and all that ever was I saw it clear I saw it all We're flowing under the tides of starlit skies A light keeps spinning, so near and yet so far Far beyond the past we left behind There lies a distant field where light will shine so bright Waiting for us to arrive We're flowing under the tides of starlit skies We’re glowing under a light that keeps on Pulling us to the ground In space and time we’re floating and what we’ve found A land where we’re all one All is one is all is one is…

We want to live in your head We want to see freedom dead You can’t decide on your own There’s no one there you’re alone Dreams burst in my eyes Time explodes Life is passing by Blow by blow They keep calling calling in my skin they’re crawling Little people preaching from their pulpits all made of lies No escape and no release Now this void of nothingness wants me No, don’t scream in my head Your voice is killing me Leeches feed on my brain Take your rotten filthy show Can’t take it anymore Just set me free Lost this fight so long ago Long before I opened up my eyes No one told me when the lines were drawn Yet no one contemplated our demise Nothing more feel I pumping in my veins Left alone Will you ever get away from me Who am I just a number in your fucking game Lost in time, I hate everything you stand for They keep calling calling in my skin they’re crawling Little people preaching from their pulpits all made of lies No escape and no release Now this void of nothingness wants me No, they keep crawling in my skin No, they keep haunting me forever This void of nothingness just pulls me in There’s no escape, there’s no escape for me

We build these thorns round our heads And we hold on tight to our kingdoms Deep in solitude we do confide And now apathy becomes our god Endless nights that lead to endless mornings Filled with words from poets of the fall Even though the water gave its warning We were blind to heed the call A cry for mercy from the bottom of a burning, bleeding heart And who would know this, where we turn to in a time we yearn for change A cry for freedom from the cruelty of this world we’re sinking in And who will tell us where the hell we go from here We live estranged from our brothers Because all is mine and mine is all Now the battle rages on and will go on forever Until there’s nothing more to die and there is nowhere else to go Darkest skies that lead to darker mornings And there’s no one there to stop the fall Who can see the light in years of scorning Who erased the writings hammered on the wall A cry for mercy from the bottom of a burning, bleeding heart And who would know this, where we turn to in a time we yearn for change A cry for freedom from the cruelty of this world we’re sinking in And who will tell us where the hell we go from here I can’t recall those words that lead to nothing These times when we feel small In tears the answers flow Moments wasted in anticipation of a brighter future that will never dawn Still it echoes in me, loud as can be The only truth that Alone we stand and fall Cause no one heard the call

Tilikum 07:48
A lonely nature’s cry, a silent warning A bloodless murder right before my eyes With no one asking why we bleed for the fallen The noise of guilt is echoing inside Why did we come down to this? Deaf, blind, sedated How is failure now the norm We should all be locked away left isolated Now humanity has failed We all have failed I will destroy this mortal flesh that stands before me I will avenge the years of suffering Grey, the shade of light when you stand near me Black is all that’s left when I am gone Why destruction is the core of our existence How can’t we all understand the way it ends from here Hate has broken us inside with no resistance Hope’s been proven nothing more than notions obsolete And still the noise of guilt it echoes I will destroy this mortal flesh that stands before me I will avenge the years of suffering Grey, the shade of light when you stand near me Black is all that’s left when I am gone I will destroy (I will destroy) I will avenge (I will avenge the years) Grey be the light (the years of pain and) black all you’ll see forever

We come from planes afar What makes us who we are Remind us what we are In dreams we’ve gone so far Hegaiamas Try n breathe under the water Try n live under no sky Breathe the ocean sail the rain and drink the stars Slowly there’s sunrise in my head Thoughts inside without me there’s nothing Building the bridges I once dreamt One command that screams loud, I AM Dig deep, far beyond the dreaming Dig deep and tell me what you see Dig more, kill your thoughts and feelings Your truth is what you need to find It is all a game, and it never ends it’s all in vain Tired and weak of trying Still I’m moving on and there’s nowhere yet that I belong I keep on fighting Standing alone, I still remember longing for home One thousand years ago No fear, learn to obey don’t cry you must fight Don’t run, live through your past You don’t die, we don’t die I’m scared, darkness in me The battle carries on Who knows us, who knows the place we come from, the origin unknown Who falls down, who loses ground when all is said and done I stand alone I stand alone Dreaming of a place we called our own Where we go I do not know don’t stop don’t ask The wheels keep turning as the earth keeps spinning There’s no beginning there’s no end it’s only here and now This moment is forever, forever Don’t stop the fight is never ending Don’t stop for life is now your own Though wind and snow we’re marching onwards With eyes ablaze and no time left to lose It is all a game, and it never ends it’s all in vain Tired and weak of trying Still I’m moving on and there’s nowhere yet that I belong I keep on fighting Standing alone now I remember I found my home One thousand years ago Die every day, be reborn every day. Deny all you have every day. The ultimate virtue is not to be free but to fight for freedom. There are two forces in the universe. One that drives us downwards, wants us to be still, to stop, to die. The other wants us to push upwards, to breathe, to live. And here we are, standing between those immense voids and all we can do is dance and cry and sing. A song for freedom, a song for freedom we will sing. I would spend forever and a day, I’d pay the price I’d have to pay to find a tiny piece, a fragment of truth in this world of illusion this life of confusion there’s got to be more than this, I could be more than this I. So I’m pouring my eyes out, I’m pouring my heart out, just for a chance to sing. A song for freedom, we will sing a song for freedom. Try to breathe under the water Try to live under no sky Breathe the ashes, smoke and cinder Bow to hegaiamas
