Track Name: To Asgard (Demo)
I'm wrapped up in a chain of my everyday routine. It constricts me 'til I lose my breath and I forget what else is left, but I'll make it out in time, and I'll leave behind this life that I've been living just to make it through.

And I will take the things I need from this lie that they believe, and I won't be held back by anything.

And when it's time to step past the line, I'll turn this all around, 'cause we're on our way to becoming something great; I feel it now.

Somewhere beyond the mass of fear and disbelief is a path that I will make myself, stories that are mine to tell. So I'm overcoming this, just counting down until it hits the moment that I let this go.

And I'll have everything I need, just in time for me to leave, and I won't be held back by anything.

And when it's time to step past the line, I'll turn this all around, 'cause we're on our way to becoming something great; I feel it now.

And you can tell me that it's not the way that I should live my life, but I can't let this go. I'm not afraid to take what's mine.
Track Name: Vader (Demo)
You fucked it up back then, and you pretend that nothing has happened since the day that you left. I still don't understand, even when I want to believe. You say you're glad to be here finally, but you never tried to find me.

And I'm alright with everything. I still turned out okay, but we are scarred inside. We'll never be the same. Alright with everything, I still turned out okay, but we are scarred inside. We'll never be the same.

It doesn't matter what you give to me, 'cause nothing can replace what you've taken away. I still don't understand, even when I want to believe. It makes me feel so sick inside, the empty things that you provide me.

And I'm alright with everything. I still turned out okay, but we are scarred inside. We'll never be the same. Alright with everything, I still turned out okay, but we are scarred inside. We'll never be the same.
Track Name: Doubt (Demo)
Pushed and pulled to lose my ground, I don't know where I am when I get back down. This world is too big for me when there's so much to dream and little to believe.

Will we last another year when each day is an uphill battle? I don't know, but I guess we'll see as I hold my breath and move against this doubt that flows through me.

And we'll give it all to make this count and own the time 'til it all runs out.

Because we deserve much more than this life, a narrowed vision pulled over our eyes. Let's conquer this system where dreams are just fiction. We'll make it our mission to live like we're in them every day of our lives.

Tell me what you think is right, and we'll press on 'til we reach the site. This time, you're not alone, so just turn away and leave today this doubt that calls you home.

And we'll give it all to make this count and own the time 'til it all runs out.

Because we deserve much more than this life, a narrowed vision pulled over our eyes. Let's conquer this system where dreams are just fiction. We'll make it our mission to live like we're in them.
Track Name: Faith in Fiction (Demo)
When I was young, I put my faith in the fiction, until I read the words and their contradictions. But I still agree that Man is dark and corrupted, so I won't bow to your belief when he's touched it.

And you can judge me all you want from the comfort of your lies, give your soul to printed words that are constantly revised, but I can't bring myself to do the same. Burn or be a slave; I guess I'm going down a road that ends in flames.

And I'll keep my life for myself and the people that I love, 'cause I know the chance of losing everything when my time's up. No, I won't devote myself to the unknown. I can't fake a love for things that never show.

I won't devote myself to the unknown. I can't fake my love for things that never show, and I don't need an organized belief, 'cause everyone's as lost as me.

I'll take my chances and make my own decisions, commit my life to all the dreams I envision, and you will stand aside as your god forbids it, just hoping that you're right when all this has ended.

And you can judge me all you want from the comfort of your lies, give your soul to printed words that are constantly revised, but I can't bring myself to do the same. Burn or be a slave; I guess I'm going down a road that ends in flames.

And I'll keep my life for myself and the people that I love, 'cause I know the chance of losing everything when my time's up. No, I won't devote myself to the unknown. I can't fake a love for things that never show.
