TwilightAmbiance Unique album that touches on a lot of different genres. Not very cohesive when listened to from beginning to end, but all of the songs individually are quality!

The album's lighter points are where I think Without Waves truly shines. Us Against is a beautiful number followed by Never Quite Know Why, lulling you into a comfortable place before throttling you again. Favorite track: Us Against.

Track Name: Sewing Together The Limbs
The colors of hate are black and gray
Caught between sleeping and staying awake
Force myself out of this black hole
Only to come up short

If pity is as petty does
I’ll live in fear of love & trust
Feels like the last day of the rest

I reside
And this bludgeoning is real
I reside (in a blank slate state of mind)
I reside (in a blank slate state of mind)
It’s the only way to feel

Alone in a dark room
To scared to open my eyes (sewing together the limbs)
Crying out can anyone hear me screaming
On my knees want you to say
It’s no fault of your own

An ocean of urgency overwhelms
Burdens lay waste as the ground starts to swell
Where’s God when you need her
Hiding in the dark when you need her

If pity is as petty does
I’ll live in fear of love and trust
Feels like the last day of the rest of my life

This is a mistake
I never meant to make
Hold me underwater now
Drown me slowly

It speaks to me in riddles
But I’m just fine
Don’t speak to me
Take the air that I breathe
Cuz I’m just fine
Deflowering the orchid
But I’m just fine
Don’t speak to me
Take the air that I breathe
Track Name: Poetry In Putrid Air
I can’t stop the war within you
I will close the door and leave

Cut it off
With a dull blade
Carnivorous open wound
Of a world made

Beyond the constant clatter
Irrelevant
I paint you as I feel
Paint you as I feel you should be

World slowly dying
Like the ash off your cigarette
Two bodies burning
Peeling scrapings off the wall

Thrown into kingdom come
For you thy will be done
Not given sanctuary
Won’t overcome

Truth be told I know the way to find this ending
We’ll both barely survive
Into the fire we’re cast away
The candle’s burning
Let’s leave this all behind

Elysian fields, in shadowing greys
Staggering footsteps, clearing the way
I can't, I won't ever break

Elysian fields, in shadowing ash
Staggering footsteps, clearing the way
I can’t, I won’t ever break

Heeding
Misleading
Feeling the knife run down your back
Heeding
Misleading
Knife run down your back

I just want to go back
To a time when I refused to lie down
And scrape off your color scheme painted on me from the start

Cut it off
With a dull blade
Carnivorous open wound
Of a world made

Beyond the constant clatter
Irrelevant
I paint you as I feel
Paint you as I feel you should be

World slowly dying
Like the ash off your cigarette
Two bodies burning
Peeling scrapings off the wall

Thrown into kingdom come
For you thy will be done
Not given sanctuary
Nowhere to run

I speak the truth straight from a man that once lost both his eyes
Wearing in a mask made up of glass that broke 1,000 times
Licking its wounds wondering how and why this lasts so long
In this underworld, empty veil, poetry in putrid air
Track Name: Us Against
Captured in your starlight
Silhouette in moonlight
Overwhelming pictures
Keeping me on solid ground

Captured in your starlight
Silhouette in moonlight
Overwhelming pictures
Keeping me on solid ground

Far beyond the pale blue
Sky we all look up to
Lies a world unending
Far from comprehending

All the way down
Keeping me excited
All the way down
Keeping me on solid ground

When it was us against the world
When it was us against the world
When it was us against the world

Solar wind extractions
Chemical reactions
Make you feel unsteady
But that’s just secondary

All the way down
Keeping me excited
All the way down
Keeping me on solid ground

When it was us against the world
When it was us against the world
When it was us against the world
When it was us against the world

Uniting you was like dividing oceans
With a single stroke of hand

Surviving you was like a prison riot
Amplified by your demands

Unnecessary make the smell go away
Tip the scales and powers that be

A grain of salt thrown over every shoulder
Quell the demons following me

Shut your mouth
Let it all go down in flames
Cut your mouth
Let it all go down in flames
Track Name: Never Know Quite Why
Your impressions
And obsessions
Are leading me down a path undesired

Your delivery
Is so deceiving
In every moment that I fake to feel fine

It’s a matter
Of a opinion
The way you quiver take a drag from your cigarette

My conjecture
Of your decisions
To feel this man
I never wanted to

Wade in your faded memories
Keeps me weighted
Down in darkness
Waiting for you

Come every
Thousand hours
My heart begins to pour
You’ll never know quite why I’m sure

Your deception
It manifests in
A darkness I can never come to know

It’s like a hostage
Situation
Negotiating and debating every word

Opposing forces
A different wavelength
Infatuation that was never meant to be
Love just a relic
I couldn’t help it
Am I at fault for this never feeling right

Unwilling
Tearing at the
Fabric of our
Mutual understanding

Come every
Thousand hours
My heart begins to pour
You’ll never know quite why I’m sure
Track Name: Victorian Punishment
Slit the throat of every dream once had
Bleed them dry as two worlds collide
What one wants morphs into what one must
Daydreams turn to dust
Like killing the women and children first

Daydreams turn to dust
Killing the women and children first
Daylight turns to dust like
Killing the women and children first

Slit the throat of every dream once had
Your daily grind don’t seem so bad
I point fingers pointing back at me
A hollow, vacant entity

Hollowed
Swallowed
Reset
Tomorrow

Painstaking and pitiless
Caught between brittle pages

Your artificial light a warm comfort
A life portrayed by pictures on a wall
Is no life at all

Daydreams turn to dust
Killing the women and children first
Daylight turns to dust like
Killing the women and children first
Track Name: E.D.M.S.
I feel like scum

Tumult
My stomach aches
Thrown away one by one
In the intangible
Bonfire
Smells like the smoke in your clothes

From head to heart
To arms to wrists
To fingertips
I bide my time
Bite my tongue
Not knowing when but knowing how
I'm gonna say it

Failing to see, asking why
Smell pheromones, get in my way
Shedding from skin, overgrowth
Painful embrace, comatose

Stuck inside a memory never getting any
Lead into tomorrow carry all your sorrow
Stuck inside a memory never getting any
Bleed into tomorrow carry all your sorrow

Held its heart
In its hands
Hit me like a blade slit through the knee
I can’t fucking see
No sweat
Can’t even remember why
It’s been replaced by c-4
Replaced by c-4
Erased by c-4
Erased by c-4

Failing to see, asking why
Smell pheromones, get in my way
Shedding from skin, overgrowth
Painful embrace, comatose

Enveloped in a fantasy world riddled with double entendres
That bears no resemblance to the youth and vigor once shared
By two like minded individuals
Ultimately separated by an untimely death and an hourglass personality
Even now I sit and wait patiently to see the day you fucking EAT CROW
Severing extensions through
Dimensions stretched beyond
Their formal state of being
Unforeseen circumstantial
Evidence
Play the game
NO

Stuck inside a memory never getting any
Lead into tomorrow carry all your sorrow
Stuck inside a memory never getting any
Bleed into tomorrow carry all your sorrow
Lead into tomorrow carry all your sorrow

Tumult
My stomach aches
Thrown away one by one
In the intangible
Bonfire
Smells like the smoke in your clothes

From head to heart
To arms to wrists
To fingertips
I bide my time
Bite my tongue
Not knowing when but knowing how
I'm gonna say it
Track Name: Lost Art
When darkness looms and terror awaits
The cosmos never stands up straight
In shallow pools of blood, I wade
Anathema, anathema

Dead set on digging deeper holes
Revile the thought of letting go
Come down on everything you know
Anathema, anathema

I’ve had enough
Don’t be scared of what the ocean brings to you
Just open up
So we can soar and glide through pathways set anew
I’ve had enough
We’ll grasp at satellites and stars, they’ll see us through
It’s up to you

It’s all for me to give to you
We push and pull like deja vu
It suffers me to give to you
Filling the infinite design

Lost artifacts from ancient days
Reflecting dust on window panes
Reminds you nothing stays the same
Anathema, anathema

The countless ways the devil sneers
Sometimes wish I could disappear
A color scheme often revered
Anathema, anathema

So don’t be scared of what the ocean brings to you
Just open up
We can soar and glide through pathways set anew
I’ve had enough
We’ll grasp at satellites and stars, they’ll see us through
It’s up to you

It’s all for me to give to you
We push and pull like deja vu
It suffers me to give to you
Filling the infinite design

I know this can’t be real
It’s taking me too long
I must be wrong

It doesn’t seem quite right
It’s taking me too long
I must be wrong

I must be wrong
Track Name: Fractals
You're drifting closer to the water's edge
The liquid cools your toes and fingertips
Assured you'll never have to wonder why
No worries just reach out and touch the sky

And as you climb your way from cloud to cloud
Realize there's no need to ever come down
Ascend to heights you've never seen before
Use your arms, move your legs and begin to soar

Infinite everlasting space
Undying there's no time to waste
Cerulean skies amaranthine
Uninterrupted (approaching the heavens lit)

Reach out and touch the sky

You're floating further from the atmosphere
Gaining the feeling that you're out of body
Your main objective is becoming clear
Sense of peace, deeming solace all encompassing

Infinite everlasting space
Undying there's no time to waste
Cerulean skies amaranthine
Uninterrupted (approaching the heavens lit)

Fully residing on a higher plane
An astral blanket of quiescence reigns
You’re freely floating stars are on your trail
Borne of faculty
Your facilities
Will be embraced by the warmth
Of your up and coming birth

Reach out and touch the sky
(and be embraced by the warmth of your up and coming birth)
Track Name: Memento Mori
Brick by brick
Tier by tier
We're building
Piece by piece
Layer by layer
We're building

Building it up
To break it down

I have the right
I have the power
To induce fear
Make thine enemies cower

You can bring all your guns
All your ammunition
Your limp wrist can't carry the weight
Of every single word you say

For we are but
Of yesterday
And we know nothing
Because our days upon earth are just a shadow

Dead man walking down a dead end road
Toe the line looking up to christ for the swing low
Dead man walking down a dead end road
Drop your
Answers to your prayers
Because no one’s really there
(You can’t do this man I don’t know)
Transgressions magnified
Remember that you’ll die
You’re dust, unto dust you’ll return

You stood for meaning
Significance
And pulled the rug
Out from under me

Built from expression
Built from expression
Built from expression
For me and you and everyone we know
