Anthony Reyes (DWTD501) Easily one of the best records of 2013 right here. Has atomosphere, amazing lyrical content and fantastic instrumentals. Cleans and uncleans match each other perfectly. An amazing send off from a band. RIP Favorite track: De-Victimized.

Track Name: Telepathy
“For example, is there is a single thing called life, which could have a meaning? Or is that just a mistake?”

She said, you live every day like you're living in the past.
No desire to live with the pack.
Who dresses your wounds if I can't?
You've saved my life 100 times.
And I’ve barely helped you up from the ground once.
You've saved my life at least 100 times.
Am I inferior, are you really that far gone?
I cannot allow your help.
I can't accept the feeling endowed.
But I can keep you from the world,
If you'll hang on my every word.
Finally I throw it away.
After all, forever ends today.
There is no one hiding but you.
I am open to see right through.
Empty, ready for nothing left.
A soulless presence constructs a resurrection of hope,
And hangs it over my window.
But every day as the sun rises, it evaporates.
I cannot allow your help.
I can't accept the feeling endowed.
But I can keep you from the world,
If you'll hang on my every word.
Numb to the unseen, tortured by the thought.
Eternity is not.
Await the internal rot.
Track Name: Losing Sight
Losing sight of an identity,
I used to be a person, I used to believe.
I’ve erased every last fingerprint.
And now I am nothing.
Sometimes that figure returns, but a shadow in a dark room.
Every time I feel it there I turn to witness a void.
We tend to forget where we have come from.
Numb from the weather, lying cold in the sun.
Sometimes I wonder who we were supposed to be.
My answer yet to be found but I will stop at nothing.
I will find you, that which I have lost.
I will find myself, and never let go.
Though I have wasted, I will remember you always.
Taken for granted.
Paradise stolen away.
Raped of sanity
Angry at the world.
Wronged by none but myself.
I will pick up the pieces.
I’ll never let go.
Track Name: Fear Of Symmetry
Our greatest fear: Reflection.
Why must we build walls all around ourselves?
Yes, they protect, but they separate as well.
All the blueprints were made inside,
Created as we walk away, from everything that’s challenging to us.
Where is our confidence today?
How did our self-worth slip so far away,
That we're left with nothing now?
We've waited too long to act on the real problems,
That we have bestowed
Upon ourselves,
That we'll own
‘Til we're fucking dead.
Wasting our senses on what we see
fit to replace what we can't achieve.
All our lives,
We're shown that inside we have no control.
So wait for everything to change.
All of my life I've been told that I have no control.
I'll wait for everything to change.
I'll wait for it all to change.
The things that enrage us,
the ones that betray us.
Those things we can’t confront,
We'd be alone without them, though we are now.
How did our self-worth slip so far away,
that we're left with nothing now?
We've waited too long to act on the real problems.
Track Name: Ghost Heart
Climb the walls to the top
Alienate the ghost heart, one final jump.
Hollow shell, pale white in color.
Lifeless it lies awaiting a breath from another.
Now as you come to, take in the writing on the walls around you.
The letters blur, I am immersed.
Lessons finally being learned.
Guilt of the ghost hearts fall.
Leave the blinds cracked open so I can see the sun when I know this is over.
Looking back 20/20 in hindsight.
You can map the future if the lights right.
I can't see the truth, so I will go my own way.
Misguided are the shapes of your design.
Pull them back to earth, set them all in line.
Misguided are the shapes of your design.
Pull me back to earth, set me in line.
Now it starts to grow, much to your dismay.
A new image of what is supposed to be directs me.
Just not today.
Back to step one again, cemented here ‘til the end.
Just not today, I can't face another.
Just not today, cause I am
Back to step one again, cemented here ‘til the end.
Just not today, I can't face another.
Just not today, cause I’m back to watching the rain fall from above.
Now I can only just watch as it falls onto the ground.
Let the rain fall onto the ground.
Track Name: Stillborn
I swallowed a pill for every day that I let drift away.
I swallowed the guilt, for all the times I’ve made you feel less than.
Now I lay down, I look around; this is my ending, self-driven.
Every day is the same, how could I be the one to blame?
I close my eyes, hoping it’s the last time.
I wish you could see me now, my apology with no sound.
The words, unspoken, weigh me down.
Today my eyes leave the world.
So that’s 15 down, and I can’t feel anything changing.
But I must lay down.
Suddenly, now I see, my misery is my own decision.
Decide!
I hope you can hear me now, my apologies sung out loud.
Dying, I call out for help.
My eyes must not leave the world.
Track Name: Enlightenment I: In Question
Wipe the mirror of old reflections, as it cracks at the sight of a new.
Ugly memories of beautiful things.
Wondering how this will end.
Abandon and relinquish my consciousness.
Has the every-day taken my color away?
For years I have lived the same day,
All of these faces and withered souls are as vacant as I feel.
All I see in the world is self-hatred.
All I see is self-hatred.
Am I just seeing you, or am I projecting the inward?
Now I see, everything, known to be, with empathy.
As the light fades, distress relays memories; emotions are fading until my senses grow dim.
I choose to keep myself, for I am what I have made.
I will be forever waiting to feel the sun on my face.
And I will wait forever.
So grow away from the lifetime,
You’ve spent becoming this,
And just learn to breathe.
How will we end?
First we must begin.
Leave this behind, turn away.
Every moment fleeting, lie awake.
Our final moments.
Lie awake, lives in vain.
Track Name: Enlightenment II: Ego Death
Two A. M. and I am awake.
Two A. M. and I am alive
Two A. M. and I am waiting for another sunrise.
So paint the picture that you wanted to see.
Break out of all of the lines that you’ve been drawing.
Two A. M. and I awake.
Two A. M. and I am alive
Two A. M. and I am waiting one another sunrise.
In so many words, out of all that I’ve heard,
Silence and loneliness have scarred their accents on me.
And every decision that I’ve delayed will bring the end of my everything,
We defecate on our dinner plates, and we’ll lay in the beds that we make, for life.
And now I realize that I have ruined my own life.
Martyrs we’ve seen turn into our reflections
As all of our neighbors sell their own rendition.
We have forgotten that we can build, but in the guilt, we never will.
Upstairs were down stares into my eyes,
Revenge slowly grew within me.
Forgiveness set me free.
Forgive and set them free.
An empty room fills with a fed up audience,
The crowd decides that there’s nothing left to see.
We bare no witness anymore.
So now we wonder as we sit and wait.
Everything that we’ve valued for so long,
Thrown away for insecurity.
If we don’t turn around,
This is how we will all be found:
Dead.
Lifeless.
Buried in their wake.
Track Name: Linear
Absently, you somehow still exist within me.
And I never thought I’d see this day in my life.
But now we are left with a feeling no one can settle with.
And every day your memory is something I battle.
Against the wall your smile is unattainable.
Everything I love, embodied in my memories of us
But now that is lost.
And its something that I can’t shake off.
In all that I do, I only see you.
Don’t forget me now.
Just leave me here
You must free yourself of me.
Leave me here,
Go find yourself without me.
I can’t tell if we are dead or floating.
But leave me here, go find yourself without me.
You can keep your life even if it means I'm without mine.
We push so hard to be cared for knowing we have no light to shine.
Try and think back to all the times,
You changed yourself to fit between the lines.
Not sure that anyone has admired a death like mine.
I am the chip on your shoulder, a linear lifeline.
Absently, you somehow still exist within me,
But I must go on with my life.
Broken homes make the strongest bones.
Just leave me here
You must free yourself of me.
Leave me here,
Go find yourself without me.
I can’t tell if we are dead or floating.
But leave me here, go find yourself without me.
Track Name: Diagnosis
I am, sick of, being unsure of this.
There was nothing that I could see,
Blinded by my beliefs.
So I gave up,
Feeling emptiness.
Forward I gaze.
The future, the fear of mine at bay.
I must throw it away now,
The fear that was always in the way.
The truth is that I was ignoring my limiting beliefs.
The comfort they gave me, not worth the walls that surrounded me.
Trapping me inside, starving me of true clarity.
How we live our lives should not be governed by anyone but our own conscious entity.
But let me not be so able to just ignore where the blame falls.
I can't remain a casualty, or I'll always feel empty.
The things that we believe can be so fucking self-defeating.
You've only got yourself to blame in the end.
Hatred has only held me back.
I find myself replaying what was.
And for what?
I must move on.
For I cannot relive a single thing.
We must create all of our memories.
How we live our lives should not be governed by anyone but our own conscious entity.
But let me not be so able to just ignore where the blame falls.
I can't remain a casualty, or I'll always feel empty.
Grow.
Track Name: De-Victimized
Now its clear, I'm the one that must steer.
Knowing not anything but what feels real.
Rest assured I will fail again,
But next time I will not wallow in it.
No.
Be free and slam the door,
Crushing the hands holding you back.
Don't you realize that you're letting them?
Victimized, when all the light seems too bright.
When all you want is out of reach.
When all you know is above you.
De-victimize yourself, stop waking up in helplessness.
Why glorify anyone if we were all made the same?
Why marvel at our thoughts with the chance to be in their place?
So let it be known now, I'll live my life to test possibility.
What are the possibilities?
Take control or no one else will.
Take control.
Take control of your world.
Obtain what seems so unreal.
Don't just sit and sulk in it all.
Become.
Whether I get there or not, at least I can say I tried.
The debt of the soul beats the debt that I'm told should be my own.
Must I repeat myself?
I cannot ignore this need.
If I can't be, I will die trying.
Live your life for no one but yourself.
Choose what to leave out.
Pry away, what's limiting.
Choose what to leave out.
There may be no reward, so just run to what you love.
The sun has to come up, don't be afraid to just wake up.
Don't dread another minute, so just run to what you love.
You might taste it only once, don't give in to giving up.
Track Name: Turn On. Tune In. Drop Out.
Blind, you shut out what you can't take.
Hide from your regrets, go numb, become displaced.
And run to the water’s edge, they'll meet you there.
You'll draw pictures in the sand of all the times from when you didn't care.
Grow up, remain in safety living in the crowd.
Grow old, refraining from the life you want to call your own.
Don't close your eyes off to the world surrounding.
All too often we die feeling that we have died alone.
Don't die alone.
So run to the water’s edge, I'll meet you there.
But I refuse to look back.
The nights call us as we watch them pass.
Do not live life in fear of the end because you did not savor your breath.
Don't close your eyes off to the world surrounding.
All too often we die feeling that we have died alone.
And I can't imagine anything worse than watching it go,
As I verse on what I should have done.
I vow to never waste another rising sun.
And I can't imagine anything worse than wasting eternity
Waiting for others to decide for me.
I ask of you all, whose life are you living out?

“I’m just saying, you only get one life. There’s no god, no rules, no judgments except for those you accept or create for yourself. And once it’s over, it’s over. Dreamless sleep forever and ever.”

So I'm asking of you now, how long will you live in doubt?
Turn On. Tune In. Drop Out.
So I’m asking of you now, whose life will we live out?
Turn On. Tune In. Drop Out.
