Salvation 06:21
Remember when time stood still? Now it moves in endless circle and always will Remember dreams I had made of gold? Lost forever, taken and sold No shadow offers the salvation I need Remember days in the sun? Now I look behind and see everything is gone Remember, to be free from sin? A fading memory, a sick and twisted dream! No shadow offers the salvation I need Some days I can't find something left behind Changes I can't see Broken Like pieces Like shattered dreams Over and over again
Confessions 05:30
Waiting for the ship to come Carry me away Sail toward the rising sun Find another way Please hear my confession All I've ever wanted won't bring me yesterday All I've never needed
When they come to me When they don't believe you Don't be sad I will tell them I will show them You weren't always so bad We always said We'd never end What ever happened to the dreams we had? The dreams I had? The dreams you had? You went and threw them all away What ever happened to the friend I had?
Goddess 08:17
"Come to me" an angel said, "and hold on" "Hold on with every secret wish inside from your once so foolish childhood; hoping for a joy it seems only the deserving know." I think I laughed and then I cried and then I laughed again Her broken neck in hands that never meant to stain the purest skin You should be miles high and faster still and carried on I know you'll forgive me for what I've done
Into the garden Covered with fear Each step, a mark in time Further from before Surrounding me as my lungs breathe this death Such impurity So cold is my heart Seems so out of place in this memory Never again will I see what this place used to be! But in my mind, I still remember each flower in the sun I still remember each spring When I played so carelessly Pretending to be king Of my playground in paradise Laughing so loud and exploding with joy And I was, if only for an instance it seems When I was a boy
I'll always want more Can't find what I'm looking for Can't find any answers here Only the question "why?" inside my mind Like an endless sea Lasts an eternity and in my dreams I am whole again I am strong again I am everything but falling to pieces I'll never have love No mercy from above Always on the other side Too much time spent killing time Sometimes I'll wait for days to hear you say I am whole again I am strong again I am everything but falling to pieces I'm falling to pieces Some day I'll try and find that light My soul set free and purified Some day I'll die Angels will guide my way in flight Feeling of calmness fill my mind All fear and anger gone away Onward, I pass on through the gates To the other side The wait is over!
Everything I've seen Everwhere I've been The only way I know Of reaching out again I'm in circles Surrounded and burning On candles of time Gone like thoughts in the wind I have seen its wings Come to wash away my sins Every question why Every time I try It all ends the same And nothing ever change This direction Show me the correction I'm drowning in flames Come to scar my remains I'll find a way To make it through another day Burning Surrounded and burning Burning I'm still burning Surrounded and burning On candles of time I'm still burning After all this time


"Regress" continues in the tradition of "Rebirth" as an uncompromising journey into the origins of this project while allowing for moments of rekindled inspiration.

Track 4 is dedicated to the one who tried so hard to rescue my former self.

Recorded at Capture Sound Studios in Brooklyn, New York between July 2019 and March 2020.
