-Mikkel- Randomly stumbled across this band on bandcamp, and I must say that I loved the whole EP when I first heard it.
I don't really have a "Favorite track" as the whole EP is good.

It's definitely worth buying this record. Favorite track: Wolves.

Track Name: Wolves
Letting my guard down again,
I let the wolves walk in.
Lending a helping hand
I let the wolves walk in.

Letting my guard down again,
I let the wolves walk in.
Deceiving with their trusting grin,
I let the wolves walk in.

Hollow intentions I see in their eyes,
I am but a stepping stone to their prize.

With their hands behind their backs, a knife hidden,
I let the wolves walk in, I let the wolves walk in.

Say what you mean, show what you say.
Where’s your honesty?
Honestly, its fear I see in you.

Why do the ones we trust the most view us as wolves,
Ready to prey on their lives,
When those who don't trust their allies are the real wolves in disguise.
The real wolves in disguise

Why do the ones we trust the most view us as wolves,
Ready to prey on their lives.
Why do we stand by their sides?

Why stand by your side?
Why stand by your side?

Pointing your finger, screaming at the sky,
Cursing those around you, but you'll deny
That waging petty battles is what you do.
Maybe it’s not everyone, maybe it’s you.

With their hands behind their backs, a knife hidden,
I let the wolves walk in, I let the wolves walk in.

Say what you mean (you mean), show what you say (you say),
Where’s your honesty?
Honestly, its fear I see in you.

Letting my guard down again,
Lending a helping hand
Deceiving with their trusting grin,
I let the wolves walk in.
Only selfishness within,
I let the wolves walk in.
Letting my guard down again,
I let the wolves walk in.
Lending a helping hand
I let the wolves walk in.
Deceiving with their trusting grin,
I let the wolves walk in.
Only selfishness within,
I let the wolves walk in.
Track Name: Unraveled
I lay awake tonight, eyes closed but my mind in thought.
Regret of what could have been,
The pain of what wouldnt mend,
Now surrounds my still body.

I need an outlet, my mind's overflowing.
My mind's overflowing.

So I turn to the only thing I know,
I lay my sorrows before me to let them go.
The comfort of sorting my demons,
The comfort of laying it out.

I watch the world before me,
Pour down like rain onto the rising flames,
And in my deepest musings,
Theyre written frame by frame.
Inside our hearts theres a martyr from the start,
But I’m now unrestrained.

These nights drag on, but pen in hand I will push through.
These nights drag on, but pen in hand I will push through.
But pen in hand I will push through.

So I turn to the only thing I know,
I lay my sorrows before me to let them go.

The comfort of sorting my demons,
The comfort of laying it out.

These thoughts left with nowhere to run.
Unraveled, understand what’s done is done.
Regret of what could have been,
The pain of what wouldnt mend,
Still unfolds but leaves me numb.
Unraveled, understand what’s done is done.

So I turn to the only thing I know,
I lay my sorrows before me to let them go.
The comfort of sorting my demons,
The comfort of laying it out.
Track Name: Comfort's Restraints
Held down, comfort’s restraints.
No need to wait for saints.

Every time your life falls out of line,
You tell yourself that everything is fine.
Finding solace in this lie,
No matter how much you deny,
We all hear your cries.
You can’t keep running,
Running from disaster.

You’re falling apart,
How can you just stand aside,
While the world is passing, its passing you by.

It’s tearing at the seams,
A tapestry stretched too far.
The stress of your whole world (bearing down),
Bearing down its weight (its weight) till the seams break.

I can see it in your eyes,
Ambition like sunrise.
Hidden, in disguise,
By the shadow you stand behind.

Held down, comfort’s restraints.
No need to wait for saints.

Repeating mistakes,
Falling behind,
Condemning your future,
To a regretful state of mind.
Wasting away,
Killing off your ties,
While the world is passing, passing you by.

You’re not a misguided soul,
You know you're not alone.

I can see it in your eyes,
Ambition like sunrise.
Hidden, in disguise,
By the shadow you stand behind.

Is this what you wanted, just mediocrity.
Living in discontent for consistency.

But why?
Why do you live this lie? (This lie)
Why?
Why do you live this lie?

I can see it in your eyes,
Ambition like sunrise.
Hidden, in disguise,
By the shadow you stand behind.
Track Name: Your Clarity
Can you really believe the words they say?
Pretense or validity, depending on your clarity.
A sense of doubt, ignored by most,
But it’s obvious to me, it was meant to make us fall,
To our knees,
To our knees.
Like a disease in our minds,
A fabrication of their design

See past deception,
Into the face reality.
You will rise, you’ll see the lies,
For what they are now, unveil the truth.

Don’t let them persuade you,
You’re wiser than you think.
The truth in their image,
Seen through your clarity.

Trust your instincts, perceive without hesitation.
The truth in their image is for your eyes to see,
You know what to believe.

See past deception,
Into the face reality.
You will rise, you’ll see the lies,
For what they are now, unveil the truth.

They would make us fall to our knees,
To our knees.
Fall to our knees,
Like a disease in our minds.
A fabrication of their design.
Fall to our knees.

See past deception,
Into the face reality.
You will rise, you’ll see the lies,
For what they are now, unveil the truth.
See past deception,
Into the face reality.
You will rise, you’ll see the lies,
For what they are now, unveil the truth.

Don’t let them persuade you,
You’re wiser than you think.
The truth in their image,
Seen through your clarity.
Track Name: Telluris
What she once held,
Love in shades of green,
We throw away,
We watch the seas turn grey.

This realization I've come to see,
Our hearts are withering away now,
Within the throws of devestation.
This is her darkest hour, as we continue to devour.
Her passion now dies, this too is our demise.

Beauty hidden by apathy,
Misguided intentions, destroying future generations.
Apathy condemning all to agony,
Lost to our damnation.

She is our mother,
She is our home,
Our only ally,
And we’re betraying her.
She is our mother,
She is our soul,
Our protector,
When will we ever learn?

We seem to forget she is our only home.
When will we ever learn?
When will we ever learn?

How can she breathe with the smoke in the air?
How can she breathe?
How can we believe what we’re doing is fair,
When she can’t even breathe the air (the air)

She can’t breathe the air.

She is our mother,
She is our home,
Our only ally,
And we’re betraying her.
She is our mother,
She is our soul,
Our protector,
When will we ever learn?

We’ve come to neglect the love our lives depend on.
When will we ever learn?
When will we ever learn?

She carries our weight on her shoulders,
But its too much to bare.
She’s barely breathing, she’s half-alive,
Can we save her now?
Can we save her in time?

She is our mother,
She is our home,
Our only ally,
And we’re betraying her.
She is our mother,
She is our soul,
Our protector,
When will we ever learn?
