Big thanks to Warne and Barbara Livesey for being such gracious hosts, welcoming Noah into their home and putting up with 8-9 hours a day of singing, screaming and gang chants. Thanks to our friends and families for their continual love and support, and everyone who purchases this EP for allowing us to keep making the music that we love.

Track Name: Monuments
These deep cracks and fissures
They seem to speak to me
Monuments ripped apart
By sand and debris

Of kingdoms, once mighty
Now all that remains
Are dusty tombs and scriptures
All left to rot away

This city will crumble before me
The wind will howl and earth will shake
And all will gather before me
Their pride swallowed by decay
This city will crumble before me
Faces left tired and forlorn
Paralyzed and humbled by
The fury of the coming storm

Self-righteous power hungry
But we are not alone
What right do they have to be
Immortalized in stone
Defacing, Erasing
All that gave us birth
The sea will cleanse us all and
Return us to the dirt

This city will crumble before me
The wind will howl and earth will shake
And all will gather before me
Their pride swallowed by decay
This city will crumble before me
Faces left tired and forlorn
Paralyzed and humbled by
The fury of the coming storm
Track Name: Anchor
I squeeze my eyes shut as I
Breathe you in
In an empty stairwell
Graying pavement cracking with contempt

I wipe your tears as we
Fall to the ground
In silence I shout I wish that I had never let you down, let you down

Do you carry your grief
Close to your heart like a silent anchor beating in your chest
And when will we see,
Pain is merely here to tell you and me we’re alive

When will we just close our eyes and see

Do you carry your grief
Close to your heart like a silent anchor beating in your chest
And when will we see,
Pain is merely here to tell you and me we’re alive
Track Name: The Fall
Empty words casually hurled through lying teeth
Used up self-assurance now
Secretly encased in doubt

A swagger in your step mistook
For confidence
All these lies that you spun
Will come back to haunt you in the end

You still pretend

Your fall from grace will be your end, just try it
You can’t bury me
Afraid to hit the ground I’ll have the last laugh
You thought you had on me

Callow contorting words
Fall on deaf ears
All the hands of help have
Withdrawn from greedy prying sneers

Now the world that you’ve spun is ripped apart
Do you truly wish that your lies could come straight from the heart

Your fall from grace will be your end, just try it
You can’t bury me
Afraid to hit the ground I’ll have the last laugh
You thought you had on me

And all of your, deceitful ways
Will be the burden on your back, until you reach the grave
Track Name: Gloria
One day we sprang awake to life not as we knew
We were just waiting for the quake
To break apart the foundation we’d laid for ourselves
We had a future at stake

And with that final shake it was all gone
The structures that we made collapsed
How can it end this way, we honestly thought paradise could last
One more day

We’re sinking on solid ground
(Gloria save our lives today)
So wipe your tears my child don’t turn back now
This city is gonna drown
(Gloria, help us find our way)
Look to the skies cause who’s gonna save us now

And I Know
That this could be the end
And I know
That this could be the end of you and I

We’re sinking on solid ground
(Gloria save our lives today)
So wipe your tears my child don’t turn back now
This city is gonna drown
(Gloria, help us find our way)
Look to the skies cause who’s gonna save us now

Gloria, save our lives today
Gloria, Help us find our way
Track Name: End of Days
We see the break of day, under charcoal skies
The ash begins to fall and cloud our eyes
And on this bluff we see for miles and miles and miles
The jagged hulls of ships that line the coast

And will, we know
Everlasting peace, when we, lay those to sleep, and when
We dream, we feel the sun, shining once again

And we, will know
Just what it means to reap, what we have sown,
I fear this winter wind, will never end
Please take my hand and follow me, I’ll lead you to the end

The seed was planted in us long ago
Fear the other, stick close to your own
Those remain divided lay sheltered from the gaze
Of a god that couldn’t lift them from the bed that they have made

And we, will know
Just what it means to reap, what we have sown,
I fear this winter wind, will never end
Please take my hand and follow me
I’ll lead you to the end

And we will stand
Now united in death
Hand in hand we turn and face
The truth behind this suicidal race
And now we see the end of days
