Track Name: Advent
From forever, grain by unending grain
Existence is formed
Between exhalation, before observation, all is reticent
Brought to silence by the darkness, absence, indifference

In time, man will come and with it the suffering of all existence
Forged and endured

In time, man will come to spread its woe

All is distance, abandon
All is absence, indifference
Track Name: Finite
Finite moments, finite breath, wasted
Embracing a reason bereft of conclusion
When knowledge is misconceived as meaning, wisdom as purpose
We embrace a world that offers no hope

Born unto death
Recycle; repeat
Until the end, adrift
And nothing

Nothing

And in our search, we abandoned faith
And in our reaching, we found truth
Hope turned to ash, carried by the winds of change
We wrought to choke the world in our despair

No future but nothing

And in our search, we abandoned hope
And in our reaching, we found truth
Hope turned to ash, carried by the winds of change
We wrought to choke the world in our despair

Despair

On this day, we wake to a barren world
Relentless grey
In our knowledge, we have exhausted meaning
Human kind has crossed the line of despair
All that's left is meaningless
Track Name: Grains
Void, nothing beyond but the past
Unredeemable, the embrace of time
Wither and grey

We gaze at long dead stars and the gulf is indifferent to our isolation

The grains of our being, carried away by the passage of time
Every moment is forever, buried and building
No breath can be redeemed

Present and future exists in unredeemable past

Future is forfeit
Buried by the past

Void, nothing beyond but the past
Unredeemable, the embrace of time
Wither and grey

Condemned to stare into the past
Condemned to become the past
Track Name: Ash
No future but nothing
Nothing beyond but the past
Victims to time, carried across the line of despair

The expanse will come to its end
As all that comes to be must find its close
But what meaning does cessation carry
To an absent observer

Know our frailty
Know our impermanence

And all suffering is but an echo

Know

Know our frailty
Know our impermanence

And in the end, dead planet is swallowed by dying sun
Roots return to earth
All is turned to ash
