Reclaiming Humanity Lyrics

Here are the lyrics to my first solo album, Reclaiming Humanity:

Mortality:

Why would you pass on for my life? I’m worthless you are not.

I have no reason to live on. I should take your place.

I can’t believe your ignorance: leaving life behind.

I took a father from his sons; living with guilt.

What have you done? Now I must live.

Fate wanted me to die.

You thought you’d show favor saving me, but you did it

For yourself, you sacrificed. Choice of ignorance.

But you died out of selfishness; interests of your mind.

I blame you for this pain I fell; living with guilt.

What have you done? Now I must live.

Fate wanted me to die.

Saving me was a mistake, altering the plan of the divine.

My journey was fated to end, leaving behind.

Revoking the laws of nature and the divine, betraying your kind.

A purposeless life, I had nothing for me to leave behind, my absence a gift.

I was doing the world a favor. I had determined my fate,

but instead you gave me the guilt of being alive.

What have you done? Now I must live.

Fate wanted me to die.

Open Your Eyes:

I can see in front of me:  a thing every man has inside of him.

Are you blind? Vision nigh? Injustice in front of your eyes.

Or is it me? What can it be? Deep inside of me, I want to shelter thee,

From the lies that we lead. How can it be, nothing to keep?

It’s time that we open our eyes!

What is this? I can’t believe. What is this in front of me?

How can it be we are deceived? It’s time that we open our eyes.

Perpetuate indecency; their life of poverty for your life of luxury.

No rights for thee, how can it be? He is a man just as much as I

We can’t conserve the hate that burns. Our vision blurred, we can’t discern.

We must equate, assimilate, every race of mankind.

It’s time that we open our eyes!

What is this? I can’t believe. What is this in front of me?

How can it be we are deceived? It’s time that we open our eyes.

I love my fellow man. Each time you speak I can’t breathe.

Born in sin, trapped within; perpetuate supremacy.

When i see how far we’ve come, passion burns inside of me.

Yet we are so far; so much left to go.

I foresee a world where love is not a crime.

One day we’ll wake and see all that we can be.

We can’t conserve the hate that burns. Our vision blurred, we can’t discern.

We must equate, assimilate, every race of mankind.

What is this? I can’t believe. What is this in front of me?

How can it be we are deceived? It’s time that we open our eyes.

I love my fellow man. Each time you speak I can’t breathe.

Born in sin, trapped within; perpetuate supremacy.

Open Your Eyes

To Breathe:

Assistance is plight, no trying to aid.

All shall fall to life’s brigade.

D’you realize, inside, the struggle within?x

I can’t believe. What can’t you see? Deceived.

Castrated mind, guilty inside.

Living a lie, denied.

D’you realize, inside, the struggle within?

I can’t believe. What can’t you see? Deceived.

So long ago I was all alone.

I can’t believe where I was.

Simply I have found a home.

I can’t believe how far it is away.

Simply I was alone; a truth to be found.

All I want is to breathe; to be.

All you feel and see through me.

All you believe to be; deceived.

All this air you breath is me.

So, as I wait, wait for you, you leave me here

To suffer by, by myself, you leave me to

Become the broken one, bring future to the past.

You don’t know what I have suffered through.

You think you’ve helped but you can’t understand.

You want me to return to the place where I was.

Isolation; to frustration.

Torn apart, shredded by expectations wronged.

Forced to sustain pain for numbers on the page.

D’you realize, inside, the struggle within?

I can’t believe. What can’t you see? Deceived.

A prolonging mind, secrets to hid.

“Please stay in line,” defied.

D’you realize, inside, the struggle within?

I can’t believe. What can’t you see? Deceived.

So long ago I was all alone.

I can’t believe where I was.

Simply I have found a home.

I can’t believe how far it is away.

Simply I was alone; a truth to be found.

All I want is to breathe; to be.

All you feel and see through me.

All you believe to be; deceived.

All this air you breath is me.

So, as I wait, wait for you, you leave me here

To suffer by, by myself, you leave me to

Become the broken one, bring future to the past.

To The Souls:

Living life not for yourself; alone in this world, no one to love.

Sacrifice all you have. Innocence among the defiled.

Life has gone on as you’re wronged.

Giving yourself up to the Skye.

Example of a Desire to Give, All in Return, ’til no passion burns.

Living is plight. Existence is numb. In disbelief I live; never return.

Sacrifice all you have. Innocence among the defiled.

In another world, you’re alone. Standing behind I watch in vain.

Slowly collapse, brain splits in half, vision is blurred, slicing the nerve.

Agony ensues, nothing I can do as you fall in suffocation.

Example of a Desire to Give, All in Return, ’til no passion burns.

Living is plight. Existence is numb. In disbelief I live; never return.

So pure, innocent at heart. His life was ended too soon.

This life and death more precious than anything.

I remember a time when life had a sacred value.

Protected by the code of human decency.

Aren’t we all one and the same, divided by shades of gray?

We’re all part of the race of humanity.

For the cause you have passed on, the death to end all deaths.

A gift only to repay through human decency.

So pure, innocent at heart. His life was ended too soon.

This life and death more precious than anything.

I remember a time when life had a sacred value.

Protected by the code of human decency.

Of No Grace:

All those lies, darted eyes, shoulders turned, gaze avert.

All I said doesn’t compare to the lies you have led.

Thought I heard it all before, but now I know

The things you did. Never avert, I returned only to

Be shamed and turned.

So do all those years mean nothing to you?

How can’t you see all I do?

I lived a lie where you had integrity.

Can’t you see you were meant for me?

So long ago you had a heart of gold.

Now from lack of use it’s shriveled, black, and cold.

In your eyes I see a gray, empty void.

I see a friend who lacks a soul.

You live in a shroud only without me.

You see me as bleak to misery.

You suck the life from my friend’s sheath.

I guess I’d known you’d kill all those close to me.

So do all those years mean nothing to you?

How can’t you see all I do?

I lived a lie where you had integrity.

Can’t you see you were meant for me?

Forgive; forget.

The stories I tell do nothing to please,

and the words you speak mean nothing to me.

Destiny calls, and it beckons my name,

as you wallow in grief and I never feel the same.

So do all those years mean nothing to you?

How can’t you see all I do?

I lived a lie where you had integrity.

Can’t you see you were meant for me?

I will forgive, but I will not forget.

Hearts Of Steel:

Life alone, guilt untold. Born to give eyes and limbs.

Castrate me. Make me bleed. Give to thee eyes to see.

I exist to give my lungs to live. Surgically feast.

Tear out my heart. Slurp in my blood.

Transplant my eyes. Leave in my mind.

I run from you, as you tear my heart out and feed it to your gods.

My body’s for you, a single purpose. Only my soul is mine.

Strife. Feast. Dissect me.

Organs for you, no rights for me. Take what’s mine can’t deny.

I am a shell of human deeds. Nothing to see; only my soul shall leave.

I exist to give my lungs to live. Surgically feast.

Tear out my heart. Slurp in my blood.

Transplant my eyes. Leave in my mind.

I run from you, as you tear my heart out and feed it to your gods.

My body’s for you, a single purpose. Only my soul is mine.

I can’t believe what this world has come to.

This is disgraceful. It’s fucking baneful.

Is this a life where it’s worth leading?

Humans replaced with person-like steel forms.

Sacrifice love for a heart made of steel.

Give up your hold for a fist made of gold.

Trade in your sight for an all seeing.

Turn in your souls for a robotic mind.

What is the cost that we will repay?

Is it worth it never to be slayed?

I can’t believe that we have devolved.

Is it worth it never to be slayed?

Divinity:

Selflessness is a thing I’ve always known, never living for myself.

I wanted this time to be the last.

Now I look and see what it’s worth: a loveless man in a loveless world.

For a fiery place you yearn, but in hell you would have burned.

I saved you from a fire down, but you wish things were reversed.

Inside you know you cannot hide. You refuse my selfless sacrifice.

Sacrifice is the greatest gift you can give in this world.

Refusing love, denying your savior you’re alone with nobody.

If you knew what I left behind, you would see the value of my gift

it was intrinsically, was selflessness.

How could it be any less? How could you even doubt?

For this you will suffer in hopelessness.

I should’ve let you die.

I saved you from a fire down, but you wish things were reversed.

Inside you know you cannot hide. You refuse my selfless sacrifice.

Sacrifice is the greatest gift you can give in this world.

Refusing love, denying your savior you’re alone with nobody.

Here with you, suffer alone dying on the inside, you want to trade

For my place. Wishing you were in my… grave.

Where I am allows me to see that I’m right.

I am not what you think of me to be.

I am half of what you are and half of what made you.

Something Unquestionably Sacred.

History Repeats Itself.

You are all of humanity; you shall feel my wrath;

All is bigger than yourself.

History Repeats Itself.

Your salvation is shared by all. Alone you shall live.

United you cannot die. All you must do is accept.

Dissatisfaction, denying the fate you live; thankful for nothing.

Gratefulness is a debt you cannot pay.

Living alone cast out from the Promised Land, I beg you to revert.

A giver of life and grief I am, rejection always burns.

So you cast yourself out from, from, from the life I gave.

Silence living alone. Plight, existence is numb.

Salvation, denial; all you must do is accept.

Creedant, Righteous, Unsatisfied. Chastising Ignorance,

self-righteous, Foolish You should die.

I saved you from a fire down, but you wish things were reversed.

Inside you know you cannot hide. You refuse my selfless sacrifice.

Sacrifice is the greatest gift you can give in this world.

Refusing love, denying your savior you’re alone with nobody.

Here with you, suffer alone dying on the inside, you want to trade

For my place. Wishing you were in my grave.
