Tsunami 05:52
Intro Beneath the waves of change We endure the tide Verse If change comes in waves, Can we outrun this tide? ‌‌‌ Stand your ground It's on us now Like a million fingers dragging down Absence of sound The roar of silence Drowns you out And drags you down into the deep Swept away by apathy PreChorus Even the strongest flood, begins with a single drop Chorus This wave bearing down on me Sent to cleanse the wickedness The horror that lives within us all Verse The breath before the plunge - is peaceful serendipity ‌‌‌ Wash it away Into the void Into the blackest of all days this under current sweeps away, claws away erosion such beautiful destruction leaves us forever changed PreChorus Even the strongest flood, begins with a single drop Chorus This wave bearing down on me Sent to cleanse the wickedness The horror that lives within us all Bridge Scream in vain, pray in vain tthat the water recedes or you find your feet and float and finally reach safer shores Outro Why can't we just be like a stone and let the waters rush over us *** Publisher: Beneath Centrilia Music Copyright 2015 Gavin Marshall | Centrilia

Verse Like eating the hive from the inside, We are hungry, but we are the meal. Save your plate, leave the scraps for the vultures Revelations that never yield You wear the uniform and march to that drum. The self obsessed, defeatist PreChorus So, Sing! Raise your voice! Not to prove something, But because you‌‌‌re alive! Chorus Next chapter, cliffhanger Give up the ghost, Where is your spirit? Where is your voice? You creature of habit, Speak now or forever hold your peace Moving on... Verse Your foundations are built on sand. (there‌‌‌s a void) And dedicated to no particular purpose. You wear the uniform, it fits so well. Deny your history. A hollow victory. No home for cowardice, No quarter for the faithless. No coincidence your world is coming to pieces (in your hands) PreChorus So sing, Raise your voice, Become something, because you're alive! Chorus Next chapter, cliffhanger Give up the ghost, Where is your spirit? Where is your voice? Bridge There‌‌‌s only so much fake I can take. Wipe that shit eating grin from your face. Show your backbone and suffer the break. ‌ Moving on...We are the hungry, we are the meal. The dancing marionette who pulls the strings Outro You wear the uniform it fits so well, you wear their uniform it fits like a glove, Forget the labels and be true to yourself Amongst the noise Be a voice not an echo. *** Publisher: Beneath Centrilia Music Copyright 2015 Gavin Marshall | Centrilia

Verse 1 Let this be, the anthem to a revolution Let this be the revaltion to set us free Entropy, entropy You break it you bought it my friend A constant state of cruelty I'm preaching to the choir PreChorus These wings were made to fly Forsake them all we're falling down, down, down, down Chorus I've seen enough of this world It's bleeding heartstrings I've seen enough of this world It fucking sickens me Verse 2 Mayday, mayday, is anybody reading me? disgrace, disgrace and not one fucking ounce of shame How do you sleep at night? The serpent has many faces I'll keep my head held high and wait for the end PreChorus These wings were made to fly Forsake them all we're falling down, down, down, down Chorus I've seen enough of this world It's bleeding heartstrings I've seen enough of this world It fucking sickens me Bridge This system, is failing. So cold and calculating. If ever, a reason to overthrow was needed I'm pretty sure We've had more than our fair share I for one have had my fill Bend the knee to no one This ain't over yet Keep your head held high resist, resist, resist Outro It's plain to me, violence comes in cycles (x4) we dug our own hole we put the i in evil *** Publisher: Beneath Centrilia Music Copyright 2015 Gavin Marshall

The Fall 04:38
Intro Grow New skin Replace the old skin Cover the battle scars Hide the same beast within ‌ Bear witness to the fall Verse I've come to the end of my rope inspiration like a loaded gun Your mind an open grave That swallows potential See the ants in the aftermath Run for cover - there is no recovery The great destroyer an eater of worlds I am destruction and your revulsion Chorus So right at being so wrong New skin for these old bones Abject moment of clarity There's a rage in me Verse Become a ghost, a name whispered in hushed tones "Nevermore" the screaming raven "Nevermore" my tell tale heart ‌ I'll scratch away until I reach the centre Reclaim the throne, rebuild an start again Chapter & verse, follow the hearse or just procrastinate Until all chances fade away Chorus So right at being so wrong New skin for these old bones Abject moment of clarity There's a rage in me Bridge Procrastinate, until it fades away procrastination is masturbation Outro Beaten and broken And beaten Until it all fades away *** Publisher: Beneath Centrilia Music Copyright 2015 Gavin Marshall | Centrilia

Coffins 06:07
Intro Eyes wide, open Finite and forgotten Redmption, disregarded Welcomed home into ruined hands Verse 1 Remembered Like a stain on the face Ashes to ashes Dust unto dust Embraced in dirt And finally set free Verse 2 You terrorize and feed the trepidation Stake your claim in a holy war and burn down a nation Chorus Unemancipated and thrown to the wolves Bow your heads in shame Let the banners unfurl Read aloud the names Consume the sin Bow your heads in the burial ground And carry black coffins in Verse 3 Nail after nail , nail after nail Wear your thorns with pride Walk with the whores and poison your soul ‌may your righteousness be your demise Eye for an eye, until we all go blind a lost cause is a lost cause no matter how well it is disguised Chorus Unemancipated and thrown to the wolves Bow your heads in shame Let their banners unfurl Read aloud the names To cleanse your sin Bow your heads in the burial ground And carry black coffins in (and in, and in, and in, and in, and in) Sample "Some people think the Crucifixion only took place on Calvary. They better wise up! Taking Joey Doyle's life to stop him from testifying is a crucifixion. And dropping a sling on Kayo Dugan because he was ready to spill his guts tomorrow, that's a crucifixion. And every time the Mob puts the pressure on a good man, tries to stop him from doing his duty as a citizen, it's a crucifixion." Father Barry (Karl Malden) On the Waterfront (1954) Bridge In the shadow of your father's house Lay me down Outro Shovel on shovel Until dirt fills my lungs A thorn in the mouth Deceit on the tongue Expel the sinner with bell book and candle Alles ist Verboten A guilt offering *** Publisher: Beneath Centrilia Music Copyright 2015 Gavin Marshall
