Track Name: Wooden Wheels
Years are worn

The breath of time is spinning faster

Yet weaker in stature
Reeling on, my fear is sewn
But not with threads of a new moral
Staggering spokes of decline
To bring to hault or continue fault?!
An open chest (is) plundered
In mind we numb and begin revolving
Spinning straw into old, to stow way and fester mold
Adding layers, stripping years
My ride will end in tears
There is no time to feel patient
No patience to feel time
Track Name: Walk the Path of Ash
Separate and diminish
Dress with a new shell
Vanish deep, walking in sleep
Shun those who let their love show
In this defense, a selfish plea
For you to live and maybe see
If you are a riddle that tricks then plagues with rust
I'll go unnoticed like the dust
Walk the path of ash, return to insanity
Walk the trap
It is more wretched than the usual prey
who take and fake with no merit, no trace
Gone is the one, our faces seep
We have not won, ashamed to weep
This is the toll, the broken gate
A wreath to lay on the grave of faith
