Our second single, release in October 2012.

Recorded and Mixed by Mat Laperle at Red Dusk Studios.


Breach the borders of your conscious mind
And dart across the dotted line that separates
Your world from mine.
For quite some time you've promised
Security from unfailing hands,
But now it's all too easy to say
My trust has worn thin

Your scheme is coming to an end,
So I'm letting go.

Your face speaks of sincerity and conviction
But I feel what's hiding beneath.
Cover up with the mask of a saint,
But I can see
You're still a cunning wolf in the clothes of a sheep.

For far too long I've worn
The chains of a marionette.
Dancing to expectations
Crippling myself with your every whim.
Bound by the fear of your words
I debate this choice I have to make.

Acting up, acting out of your league.
The seams fall apart and the character ceases.
I've got a key to freedom in my hands
Do I break the lock
Or send it through your heart?

I am but a victim
To the game you play,
But I'm not your slave
Any longer.

Fall silent and take a back seat
To all that fuels you
When will you realize?
This is not your life, this is not your dream.

I never wanted the answers
To a question I never asked,
So save your excuses for someone else.
I'll write my own truth away from your toxic pact.
Kiss me goodbye
'Cause I'm not coming back.

Drawing meaning from every thought.
Don't try to be apart of something you're not.
The Interpreter
of all that is naught,
All that is naught!
