lyrics

They've run my body through smoldering coals
They've carved my bark and exposed a naked soul
Life often entraps and embattles us with existence
I've seen greater men than me toil with tribulations
But if you can survive and reflect upon your demons
You will arise with a tortured wisdom

You can’t hold in deep breaths forever
You have to exhale every now and then
We know not where we’re going
Only what we hope to become

Now i'm setting my roots and breaking through the surface
I'm budding better fruits with my greatest sense of purpose
I was full, but they x'd me out
I am empty, but I'm still driven

Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future
As time slips by Its become so clear that I have not time for
Emotions of vengeance and fear

I want to release the hate from my heart
This is the genesis of my ascension

They've run my body through smoldering coals
They've carved my bark and exposed a naked soul
Life often entraps and embattles us with existence
I've seen greater men than me toil with tribulations
But if you can survive and reflect upon your demons
You will arise with a tortured wisdom

You can’t hold in deep breaths forever
You have to exhale every now and then
We know not where we’re going
Only what we hope to become

This is the greatest moment of our lives
We have survived and we're alive
I was full, but I've been X'd out
I am empty, but I'm still driven
This is the greatest time of our lives
We have survived and we are alive
release the hate from my heart
this is the genesis of my ascension
(If I were to die today, no one would remember my name
and that’s a shame because I have so much to say)
