Even as time flows by Like a river to your eye Seize the moment, never let it lie All the people in your life A small tear on a desert sand Still waters the land Every thread in every cloth in every quilt in every bed Without them all there would be nowhere to rest my head See the light glow through the fog of every day in everyway Never give up cause you're the one that keeps me sane The pulse of the earth a trllion beating hearts A rhythm to which we all subscribe The drum we march to in our lives But you're... You are like no one else Don't be so hard on yourself You're a beacon hope, A light in the dark On every journey you embark Even when pressure surrounds Breaking down everyone around There is light within us all To guide us if we stand tall
3.
Am I lost? I feel crushed Oceans of pressure, drowning in the deep In my dreams I'm lost in the trees Petrified like the memories that I keep Trapped in a cage of my own Bought by money I still owe It's not enough we have to pay For a game we don't want to play You need this While I need that They would sell us air if it were bad We can't take anymore We need to settle the score They put their guns to our heads and tell us we should be glad Trapped in a cage of my own Bought by money I still ow e It's not enough that we buy in We need to drown while we grin We've had enough we take the blame We've had enough of this game That we're all made to play
4.
We've all heard the story Of how our friends change They aren't the same Refuse to play the game We make them feel ashamed And we keep them chained To what we think they are A title and nothing more Their station raises the bar But they aren't keeping score Is there ever a special case When someone wins the race Didn't know they even entered So they get called self-centered But friends should know more than the name See past the barbed-wire walls of shame They're still the same Don't wanna play the game But we keep them chained To what we think they are A title and nothing more Their station raises the bar But they aren't keeping score So you think that you can take Everything as it is today x3 So you think you can take Everything away and make it To what we think they are A title and nothing more Their station raises the bar But they aren't keeping score What if we all made mistakes We're mortal, can't catch no breaks So we need to remember more than the name No one is just those walls of shame They are more than What we think they are Not just a title, they're more Their station isn't a bar And they aren't keeping score They are what they are Not just a title, they're more Their station isn't a bar And they aren't keeping score [Solo]

Clear out your lungs The first voice that you find They try to force us, to the rungs of the ladder they say to climb So we find ourselves so tightly strung 'cause we're walking blind So we discover, as we get older That all we can do is grind They're rich and, we're poor but All the times we all wanted to give up Yet we pushed each other on through Life and lies, the greed and corruption The unseen wolves inside too Be you, they say As they smooth your wrinkles out You know it's bullshit, but you take it You only know how to be devout They taught you well, though you're in hell You feel that you can't tell Everyone knows how the tale goes Until the cracks start to show They're rich and, we're poor but All the times we all wanted to give up Yet we pushed each other on through Life and lies, the greed and corruption The unseen wolves inside If we could turn back time Could we make everything fine? Unify the shards in our minds? Is there a hope that we can in our lives See the selfish be denied?

Up on the stage Lights shine bright There's a sudden silence Eyes dilate Heart accelerates A war begins in your conscience Feel all the stakes Pound in your veins Feel that you can't do this It's all in your mind Your pride Push back and go without it Put trust, in those, all who care about you You must, realize, that you will criticize Yourself, so much, no praise wil be enough Look deep, and find, the greatness that you hold inside PRove to yourself, not anyone els e You're great in their eyes, don't deny they love you Unravel the doubt, throw it out, don't keep it about Light the fireworks, explode in the air, another moment of glory

I want to feel the wind blow My mane fast as I can go I want my dreams to come true High altitudes chill me through I swear that I can feel the sand Of time flying faster than I can So I just want to fly Have azure fill my eyes I shrug my shoulders Hoping my wings will set me free As I grow older There's only one thing I want to be Flying through the skies It's been so many years rr each time I try it ends in tears I want to feel like other pegasi Have the wind keep my face dry And I still want to fly Have pure azure fill my eyes I shrug my shoulders Hoping my wings will set me free As I grow older There's only one thing I want to be Flying through the skies Some day before I die I simply want to find A way to satisfy What's always on my mind And if I can't rise Becuase of my wing's size Can I pay some price? And just reroll the dice? So I can have my chance to fly
9.
Restlessly I lay awake Through mental tension and noise With every step I take I don't feel I have a choice Please come, take me I want to see My dreams inside my head I want my mind to be still Is it becuase the life I've lead I've seen so many killed Far from home... I follow the voices I hear Flung back over a thousand years Can I change the flow of time So dragons can again fill the sky Dreams, dreams echoes echoes whispers madness
10.
All alone again. My thoughts stray. A thousand hours inside of this room Thousands with nothing left to decay I'm the hero... so they assume I try to stoke the fire Of my soul when I’m alone but I’m the adopted daughter With nowhere left to call my home But I am my own… I always pursue my missions. Revenge is the path I know But the times in between when I’m in wait… That’s where I drown in sorrow I try to stoke the fire Of my soul when I’m alone but I’m the adopted daughter With nowhere left to call my home But I am my own…

These are the things I no longer wish to understand. The blood on my hands, shaking with rage at life taken away. You know what they say? It's part of life in this land. I try to stand, my legs buckle despite my wish to be gone. The crimson turns to ichor, crawling up my arms to my head. The knowledge of the dead, the living tossed aside. And I, inside feel innocence giving in to my dread. The horrors unsaid. The victims of my ignorant side... Bodies controlled by others are dying, Victims of a culture of lying Led to the water, forced to drink, finding the poison, we find that link Cognitive Dissonance so out of sync, shouting so loud that you can't think The opposing thoughts, voices and methods, they cancel out so it seems silent instead. Exhausted, what I know reaches my neck. The air becomes thick, with the thoughts of my own Filled with regret, regret, regret, regret, regret Paralyzing my soul, I can't forget. My head is now red, with the blood from my hands. Collapsed in the corner. See all that's left My brain soaked in death. It's all subtle theft. It was so much simpler then. Back before I bore the sin. Mislead to think I had no hand In the things I can't forget I know and understand

about

My fourth album...

After I released Sands of Time, the sands of my hour glass really began flowing faster than they ever have. After 2014 began I found myself rushing toward major events in my life. I performed to a great crowd in San Francisco and sold over half my stock. I got married to my best friend, most staunch supporter and ego-evener. My first three albums were released within a year and 2 months. I attempted many things but I can only rearrange tracks so many times...

I kept writing, kept producing, my time became squeezed further and I started pondering how much society influences our lives. The title track was borne out of a frustration of a society that failed and I found that the songs I'd been writing over 2014 were all meditating around that subject.

I've started going out to ask others to assist me, and I think it has improved my music in ways I couldn't have imagined. This will not be my last full length, but I hope that the songs in here can last you, my fans, for awhile. Thank you, as always, for your support. I think I'm gonna start calling you the Wolf Pack. You always stick with me, even back when I knew way less about being good than I do now. ;-)

Happy listening, enjoy.
