Track Name: Epitaph
Fire comes to burn it down
(Burn it down, you fall to the ground, they suffer)
A man is gone without a sound
(Another ripple in the river)

Look ahead and see the light
While it still remains in sight
Eyes turn to the sky, still burning bright

Restart me, i can't breathe
But ill live to see the morning
Live up your voice and sing to me
Of angels and demons

I know all the answers I've seen the new light
But my brothers and sisters still mourn on this night
I've asked all the questions, seen what they reveal
But one things not certain, how can this be real?

Eyes up, eyes up
Eyes up, eyes up (hey! you gotta keep your)
Eyes up, eyes up

Go now, you live inside our hearts
Solace comes from within
One chance to make a dream alive
Gravel ground down to dust
Go now you live inside my heart
Carry you in my wake
Reaching to feel the freedom of
Eternal life above
Track Name: Memento Mori
I watch the leaves fall from my life
As every man has known
And in the autumn harvest
I reap what I have sewn

But in my twilight days I seek
To see beyond this life
The will to live is surely stronger
Than deaths accursed scythe

But in my twilight days I see a way
To see beyond this life

Fated to fall, to witness the end
No respite from death, no hope to transcend
Make peace with the world, meet the other side
Remember your death, remember you will die
Track Name: Above or Below
My days on Earth have past
Where will I go?
Two paths at my feet
Far from life.

Can I choose one?
Will choose me?
One is calling
Guiding my soul

Looking back on my life
It’s difficult to see

Where will I go?
Above or below

The ground cracks under my feet
The sky opens up
A hand reaches from below
One from the clouds
