Track Name: Against the Modern World, Pt I
A flood in autumn
Thunder of spring
The snow in winter
And the sun of summer

Against the modern world
We wait for the day
Track Name: The Waves of Sorrow
Swallowed by the waves of sorrow
Dragged away from the shore
Swallowed by the waves of solitude
Engulfed in a storm
Pulling me under the surface

The tide forever lingering
My pain is streched across the land
And it fills every crevice

An endless crashing against the rocks
Crumbling away and carried on the waves

The peace now turns to chaos
Washing up faded memories

Falling away
Track Name: Against the Modern World, Pt II
I sit secluded
Away from the modern world
The silence of nature
The echo of thoughts
Reflected back to me on the ripples of the water

As I gaze at the horizon
From the peaks of these mountains
I think of the beauty
Of desolate winds

They whisper their silent song
They scream of their sorrow
They tell all their stories
Of which I'll never know
