fathead dog I'm really digging ZIION! Some "Djent" qualities mixed in with "Metalcore" elements at times. I really dig the "Hardcore-esque" vocals, especially on Release. Favorite track: Release.

Track Name: Raindogs
They say every dog has his day and mine was yesterday. When I finally left home, just another runaway. Now I've lost my scent.
IN THE RAIN! IN THE RAIN!
Now life will never be the same. Ever since that fateful day when we lost our way IN THE RAIN!
Now you're cold and soaked to the bone. Lost and all alone. Homesick! but you don't know which way is home.

RAINDOGS
Just another barking stray!
RAINDOGS
Just another Howling stray!
RAINDOGS
Just another Fucking stray!

It's a dog eat dog world!
And we're hungry for war!
Track Name: "friends"
Guilty, by association.
I never thought it'd be a death sentence.
Guilty, of infatuation
I never thought it'd be my damnation.
Guitly, of procrastination.
Has cost you every opportunity.
Guilty, by delusion.
You only see what you wanna see.

Wanna know what I see?
A skeptic, always second guessing.
A hypocrite, never practice what they're preaching.
A sadist, in love with other's suffering.
And a massicist. In love with their own misery.

Oh god, where do I begin?
I find myself lying here again.
Staring at the ceiling, where I see my "Friends"
Their lid less eyes looking down on me. I realize now, they'll never leave. These "Friends" will always be there for me. After all, hell loves company.

So be wise when you chose your Friends.
And be mindful, when you chose their Demons.

Now your blaming all your "Friends" again. The very spectors you let in, with all their all too familiar sins. It was never your job to save them. After all you have your own demons and they're in no need of any further afiliations.

So tear my eyes open. So I can see. You only cared about yourself. You never gave a fuck about me.
Call it narsasistic. Call it selfish. Either way. Let's be honest. You never gave a fuck about me.

You never cared.
You never will.
You played the judge in hell and if that's the case.
The verdict will always be, we're all damned. We're all guilty.
The verdict reads, we are all guilty.

So now I ask myself.
Am I confusing my "Friends" with my demons, or am I confusing my demons with my "Friends"
Track Name: Release
For far too long we've been the blind leading the dammed.
If we keep our heads in the sand. Surely, this will be our end.

NO (x4)

Pushed down, til I can not breathe. (I can not breathe)
Then you have the nerve to ask me. Why I scream?
Play the victim if you'd like. It makes no difference to me, but bite your ducking tounge, before you open your mouth to preach.

WE'RE ALL JUST LOST AND LONELY SOULS TRYING TO FIND OUR WAY

WE'RE ALL JUST HEAVY HEARTS PRAYING FOR RELEASE

AT THIS RATE WILL THE HUMAN RACE EVER KNOW PEACE

IF WE KEEP OUR HEADS IN THE SAND WE'LL NEVER BREAK FREE

Born into a toxic society. I feared I would die a silent obidient slave, but in my darkest hour music found me. It became my savior and is now my release. My war cry.
Fuck the one percent. Hiding behind their shadow government and Fuck those who would sell souls for profit. These false prophets.
Am I the only one sick and tired of being sick and tired?
Strip away this vail of lies cast over our eyes and free your mind.

WE'RE ALL JUST LOST AND LONELY SOULS TRYING TO FIND OUR WAY

WE'RE ALL JUST HEAVY HEARTS PRAYING FOR RELEASE

AT THIS RATE WILL THE HUMAN RACE EVER KNOW PEACE.

IF WE KEEP OUR HEADS IN THE SAND WE'LL NEVER BREAK FREE
Track Name: Idle
Well it seems we're here again my friend. With you on the ground feeling sorry for yourself and me extending my hand. You tried to fix another broken heart, when you had your own to mend. So what's it gonna be? You gonna lie there and die, or get up on your feet and take control of your life? I guess we'll see...

They say idle hands are the Devil's plaything. Just like your idle mind is where he's dancing.
My feet feel heavy. It's as if I'm sinking. These four walls are closing in on me, but I won't let this house of bones become my grave. Through its not so easy, once you've lost your footing. The hardest part is losing everything and being left with nothing, but keep your head up kid. Keep fighting. This isn't the end. Keep moving. I know she was your everything, but she was just the beginning.

Only you could bring me to my feet.
Only you could give me reason to sing.
Only you could make me believe.
Without you I'm left idling.

Only you could bring me to my knees.
Only you could give me reason to breathe.
Only you could make my heart beat.
Without you I'm left idling.

So sick of just idling!

So pick yourself up off the ground and get yourself moving. Let this music build your momentum. Let these words be your motivation.
We never said it'd be easy. We never promised anything, but I promise you this. She was just the beginning.

Only you could bring me to my knees.
Only you could give me reason to breathe.
Only you could make my heart beat.
Without you I'm left idling.

ONLY YOU COULD BRING ME TO MY FEET
ONLY YOU COULD GIVE ME REASON TO SING.
ONLY YOU COULD MAKE ME BELIEVE.
WITHOUT YOU I'M LEFT IDLING.

ONLY YOU COULD (×2)
Without you I'm left idling
ONLY YOU COULD (×2)
Without you!

Your love was the light that guided me.
Your love was the wind beneath my wings.
When I held you close I felt the warmth of the sun, but like iccurus I flew too close and now my wings have come undone in the flames of our love.

And as I plummet to the earth below. From the heavens above. I take one last look at the sky. I hold my breath and close my eyes and give thanks to have known your light. You will always have a place in my idle mind.

They say idle hands are the Devil's plaything. Just like your idle mind is where he's dancing.
My feet feel heavy. It's as if I'm sinking. These four walls are closing b in on me, but I won't let this house of bones become my grave.
Track Name: Queen
As I lay here, Alone cause your not there.
As I lie awake, on your side of the bed.
I can't get your voice out of my head.
I'm left with a heavy heart.
I'm left with a heavy head.
I'm left unable to rest.

For I had felt as a king.
With you beside me my Queen.
But that was before today.
Now I look in the mirror and all I see is a slave. A slave.
To my sadistic, self-destructive ways.
Oh god, will I ever change?

My Qeeen, My Queen
It's me. Your King. I wonder, can you hear me?

My Queen, My Queen.
You were my everything and without you, I'm left with nothing.

My Queen, My Queen.
Oh god, how could this be? It seems we were never meant to be.

My Queen, My Queen.
How could you do this to me? You were the one who saved me.

My Queen, My Queen.
I swear to god I tried, but I couldn't save your life.

And that disease in your spine. Became a sickness in my mind.
And it keeps me up at night.
Screaming at the sky.
Telling god to take my life.
Cause without you my queen.
I feel as though I am already dead on the inside.

My Queen, My Queen I know you'll never come back to me, but I'd give anything. Just to hear you say my name.
Track Name: Close
DON'T LOOK BACK and be sour because it's over. Instead look forward and be glad that you got closure.
Cause that's more then most will ever give and that's more then most will ever get. It's your choice to live your life with regret.

And some people will just never understand.
That every boy has to grow into a man.
And these scars, they don't defy who I am
Just remember, nothing ever goes a cording to plan.

And I've wasted so much time.
Being hateful in my life.
Blaming my loved ones and those around me, for the fact that I just wanted to die.

And I may be the the one who closed the door.
But I'm not the one who left me bleeding on the floor.
Just begging for more.
of that pain that I just adore.

This is closure
But this is far from over.
To think that we were so close
But everything must come to a close.
For this is closure
But this is far from over.
Oh god, we were so close
But everything must come to a close.

So don't look back and hateful because it's over. Instead look forward and be grateful that you got closure, cause that's more then most will ever give and that's more then most will ever get. It's your choice to live your life with regret.
So do not focus on accepting the things you can not change. Instead focus on changing what you can not accept and above all else remember this.
It's okay to hurt.
It's okay to love.
It's not okay to just give up.
