Temple of the Soul

Time forgets to crush my bones
Follow destiny
For treasures of the soul
Tell me how you made it here
And I’ll tell you the mistakes you won’t make
How many times
You would have said
We didn’t think that was possible

Boredom forgets to crush my dreams
Follow curiosity for secrets of the soul
Tell me how you think you’ll survive
And I’ll tell you what mistakes you will make
How many times
You will have said
We didn’t think that would happen

TBT: Into The Darkness (2005)

I spent half of my life
Wondering if I was crazy
And I spent the other half
Wondering if it was all in my head
People that promised me answers
Only abandoned me
I was left alone, helpless
In the dark of my thoughts
Since the day I was born
I've been falling
Seeing things I shouldn't see
Feeling things I shouldn't feel
I guess to everyone it seemed
Like anything else at the time
Nothing but the thoughts
Of a child with an imagination
I'm not even sure I believe
But it believes in me
If it's luck, if it's fate
Then why am I left alone
To answer the questions
No one wants to ask
If I told you I was a monk
If I was priest
You would never question
My solitude, my sanctuary
But I'm willing to share
If you follow me down that path
Just don't leave me standing
Alone in darkness

For The Monument

I breathe back to life
For a moment
One more chance under the sun
One more chance to understand
Why I’m waiting
Never get distracted by pointlessness
I got inertia
And inertia’s got me

I scream back at life
For the monument
One missed chance under the sun
One missed chance to expand
Why am I hurting
Never get obsessed with joy
I got desolation
And desolation’s got me

I steal back from life
From my opponent
One last chance under the sun
One last chance to stand
Why am I breaking
Never get scared of boredom
I got time
And time’s got me
