Drewsif Stalin Some of the most absolutely flawless transitions between riffs I've heard in quite a while. Great grooves, beautiful licks, sick vocals, all around a fantastic album. Definitely worth listening to! Favorite track: Movement 5: One Day (Ft. Mike Malyan).

Track Name: Movement 1: Don't Wait
Sitting opposite myself from miles away;
The reflections don’t align with the stem,
And a changing world overwhelms…
The naive man will want to die for a noble cause,
But the wise man will want to live for a humble one.
Is this not enough?

Take your time, there’s no rush.
Forget, forgive, forward.
We will grow.

Think less, feel more.
If it isn’t broken, don’t try to fix it.

Why is this not enough for you?

You ignored the world, locked yourself away,
Tried to find something else to make life worth living…
Of course you found someone else’s answer.

One day…
Track Name: Movement 2: The Misplaced Search (Ft. Mike Malyan)
We are lost in the fall.
The wind rushing past, falling with the sand
That sets the pace of time.
No hooks to reel me in,
The fisherman has better lines to throw
As they stand at the edge of this waterfall
Catching the lucky ones who lost their way.

But maybe we don’t have time on our side anymore,
We can’t break the cycle, I see no earth below me.

I’m living in the fall,
We played god…

Wishing, hoping, praying,
Buying, craving binging
It’s all a misplaced search for contentedness.
The answer to it all isn’t what we need.
Think less, feel more.
Materialism is a misplaced search for contentedness.
Track Name: Movement 3: All You Need
What lies behind and in front of you,
Matters little when compared to what lies within you,
Right now.

Don’t let them tell you what you need,
All you need is what you have.
All you have is all you need.
All you need is what you have.
Track Name: Movement 4: On The Basis Of Love
I'm lost in my homemade hell.
Track Name: Movement 5: One Day (Ft. Mike Malyan)
How do we choose who to save?
What do we know?

What do I know?

But still we do nothing, just add them to the list.
Still we do nothing, ignorance is bliss.
We just need to be kind,
To Humankind.

Circle the ball of light that represents your essence,
Gliding illicitly in the air that you create.
Shadows circle but you gravitate towards the core.
Breathe in everything that you possess,
With kindness.

One Day
I will ignore the clock
One day
I’ll see beauty in the beautiful
One day
I’ll be ready for love
One day
I’ll grow into the man that I want to be.

MOVEMENT 2:

We are lost in the fall.
The wind rushing past, falling with the sand
That sets the pace of time.
No hooks to reel me in,
The fisherman has better lines to throw
As they stand at the edge of this waterfall
Catching the lucky ones who lost their way.

But maybe we don’t have time on our side anymore,
We can’t break the cycle, I see no earth below me.

I’m living in the fall,

Wishing, hoping, praying,
Buying, craving binging
It’s all a misplaced search for contentedness.
The answer to it all isn’t what we need.
Think less, feel more.
Materialism is a misplaced search for contentedness.

MOVEMENT 3:

What lies behind and in front of you,
Matters little when compared to what lies within you,
Right now.

Don’t let them tell you what you need,
All you need is what you have.
All you have is all you need.
All you need is what you have.

MOVEMENT 4:

When you don’t know who you are, or what you want;
Try to find the line between what’s right and what’s wrong.
Always choose on the basis of love.

You will learn to strike the balance, don’t be thoughtless
But over-thinking can poison us.
Some things need time and space to heal,
Help me with your sweet lies.

Movement 5:

How do we choose who to save?
What do we know?

What do I know?

But still we do nothing, just add them to the list.
Still we do nothing, ignorance is bliss.
We just need to be kind,
To Humankind.

Circle the ball of light that represents your essence,
Gliding illicitly in the air that you create.
Shadows circle but you gravitate towards the core.
Breathe in everything that you possess,
With kindness.

One Day
I will ignore the clock
One day
I’ll see beauty in the beautiful
One day
I’ll be ready for love
One day
I’ll grow into the man that I want to be.
