about

If you are a fan of heavy music, chances are you have come across your fair share of concept albums. While The Awakening of the Sleeping King doesn’t expose its concepts so blatantly, the lyrical themes still surround themselves within a singular story. Simply put, its a personal reflection of someone who suffers from multiple personalities. Often times these types of people can also suffer from multiple psychotic voices in their head, which are represented here by both clean and screaming vocals.

Track Name: Provoke the Nightmare
Close your eyes now and believe what i see
Pain in your soul is familiar to me
Carry these words as a look to the past
Use them to guide you towards truth at last

Wake up and find yourself alone
thinking about the place where you belong
To live without a mind that is devoted
carelessly to mankind will leave your senses blind
with nothing for you to leave behind, nothing at all

Sacred words you sing to heal yourself
cutting closer to the vein in a cry for help
Leaving everything you have in the hands
of something that you don't even understand

You always hear the stories of the ones that have died
simply giving in to the illusions and lies
in hopes that you will become a legend with so much pride
This will change as soon as the sun has hit your eyes

Ask yourself just what you see in your reflection
disregard the image you portray for your protection
Collectively you think its such a good decision
don't you know how many people are in your position
Track Name: Dedicate and Dispose
A face that you don't know, a voice that never screams
A heart that never beats, and eyes that cease to dream

Connection that is gone, a hope shattered in vein
Collections now withdrawn, from the sight of the unseen

You soulless coward, how dare you bleed to me

Trying to hold on to precious soil
(before i sweep your legs from underneath)
The plans that you have set now i must spoil
(in fear you wince away as i grind my teeth)

So now your fate i hold, decisions i must make
to break apart your mold , and reveal you are fake
To beg will do no good, your weakness runs so deep
know i once understood, how it was in eternal sleep

So now we wander in between

What you are is just a foolish feeble mistake
and after all, our best sides shine when our shells are forced to break

I never thought id see us here this way
(together on the same path that we made)
Courage once was lost now here to stay
(strength within now helps to keep us sane)
Track Name: The Might of a Whisper
Just look into my eyes, more than just black and green
If you prey for my demise, i wont try to change your mind

Beckoning for the sun to set. Erase the pain and let me forget
A darkened smile within my reply lets me know that ill be alright

In the past i would waste the day
(losing focus and incentive)
Everything has now been changed
(i must remain reactive)
If you could see me, the way i was
you could not disagree, everybody has their own flaws

Examine me to fit your needs, create your own stipulations
This is how the inarticulate feed, to their misfortune they succeed

Everyone has their own disguise
to try and make themselves go and hide
The pain is deep and makes me perceive
you need to give so that they receive

Conforming now to idle hands that only feed your actions

Now that this has come to an end I send a message that i defend
Compare yourself to no one but you look inside to help you break through

Why do i expose myself? (when so many will only doubt)
Do I really need your help? (if not then why do i scream and shout)
Look at the picture from far away
tell me then is me or you who's skies are clouded by your own way?
Track Name: Protean Disaster
Run away from dismay
Let go the hand that you betray

Walking through the sand, trying not to hear that this was meant to be
Together here we stand, crying out to wake us all up from this dream

In this battle we fight today
sometimes it feels like we're fighting alone
When we try to face you, you walk away
Will we ever find those words that we embraced?

Now we stand far from grace
Astray our plan, almost erased

Seconds fly away, as time is wasted carry out your next defense
Don't wait for another day, pay the price to bleed your words at your expense

At times it seems that we have reached our final confines
So now reach inside and expose your wrath
Track Name: Answers to Ashes, Trust to Dust
Everything is happening all at once
never giving time to figure anything out
Dropping like a weight and bringing me to the ground
I try to get up but I'm forced back down

Crawling at the dirt i try to get ahead
realizing now that I'm just better off dead
How can i get these thoughts to get out of my head
I'm starting to feel what lies ahead

Calming my nerves is the silence (collect your thoughts before you break)
Closing my eyes to rid violence (unless you want to keep this pain)

When will i see the solution? (without asking the one above)
Trying to find resolution (inside this vicious insanity)
Its almost as if i am dying (has destiny caught up so fast)
With angels above that are crying (i start to see a light at last)

Thoughts becoming clear, the strain has disappeared

Now i return by the grace of the unknown
From the fires that burned, to the place i can call my own

Creation has made me who i am today
though deep inside i am the one to obey
Society can hold you down and expose your flaws
so stay true to yourself and stay true to your cause
Track Name: Trysting Place
Now I see clear as the night sky
I wander around guided by the fireflies
In search of you I know that your not far away
Extend your hand, and join me now. This is our day.

Leaves that once covered our secrets are blowing freely into the air
Did I mention that I'll keep this as a memory of it's own?

In the place we call our forest, a look to you and a smile back
Now our love has it's own purpose, no more pain in our hearts of glass

So here we are surrounded by the stars
Into your eyes I gaze upon and gather dreams
To sleep we go our arms entwined
I'll keep you close with your hand in mine

I finally found the one to keep me far away from uncertainty
And though it seems so good, will it relieve my pain?

In the place we call our forest, a look to you and a smile back
Now our love has it's own purpose, no more pain in our hearts
Our hearts will last
Track Name: Seeded With Vengeance
Consequence has left you hopeless where you stand, leaving me with no choice but to end this by command
Follow me into this room of deaths facade, no one here can help you not even your precious god

Wait and see how I can be
Get on your knees, and don't believe
Nobody here except your fear
As i get close you start to hear the screams so deep
You start to weep, and prey for sleep
There's no escape so stay awake
Its no mistake I've got you right where i want you

I could easily just shove a rag inside your mouth
Soaked in blood it would prevent me from hearing your shouts
Your skin is soaked in lies so lets just cut it off
This part seems tough here let me squeeze, when i do, could you please cough?

Wait and see how i can be
Get on your knees, and don't believe
Nobody here except your fear
As i get close you start to hear the screams so deep
You start to weep, and prey for sleep
There's no escape so stay awake
Its no mistake
Time to ponder here while you ache

So now I'm sitting here wondering if I've gone too far
Maybe circumstance has taught me no matter what ill never cover my own scars

Is this really what you want
Do you think you can make everyone suffer
Track Name: Parallel Absolution
I always walked alone with no one there to accept me. I had nowhere to go with nothing left to be set free

In time I'd lose my virtue to a stranger so confused
no purpose on this planet with a myth that clouds all view

Aiming backwards at my secrets I create my own misfortune too

As I rot in a pile of filth do I expect to be saved by you?
Id rather be burned alive than to give in to what you ensue
Believe me I would love to capture the mood that has weighed me down
and give it back to you ten fold, then watch your greedy body hit the ground

Falling further into torture I brace myself to hit the bottom
but as i land so hard, the ground beneath begins to shake, and I fall yet again

So now the tears have drown me, gasping for just one more breath. at last I've met my ending to a book I've never read

The darkness has become my light. What I love now was once my fright
The fires burn to fuel my might. As I return to claim the night

Look beyond yourself and your allegiance to others, destroy everything and everyone who inherits betrayal.

Now I'm back to seek revenge on those who pained myself of living in their world of constant shame
They wanted me to be like them so here I am only to deliver this devils punishment

After all of this pain and torture Ill leave them be to wait for the next
You will meet them soon in your future and hopefully this time you will learn from your mistakes

At last its time to go, continue on with no more pain. Keep in mind what lays below, and grow from that of which you have gained

A deviant asylum, turned into my utopia. All because I had fallen, and made my way back without leaving who I am
