Is anyone there?
Can anybody hear me?
Are these messages
Coming through clearly?

Over a year has gone by
Since I felt the ground beneath me.
How much longer must I wait
Till these binding walls release me?

There are so many worlds
Left to be discovered.
My mind is set on new horizons,
But you're holding me back.

If you are listening to this
Than we have reached the other side.
We've chosen the path
That you so readily denied.

Time, time
It only takes time
Wait it out...Wait
It only takes time

What–
What do you want from me?
I refuse to be the coal
That burns in your machine.

Why–
Why do I even try?
When there's so much
Holding me back from the open sky.

Sitting like a stone,
You don't budge at all.
Crying for relief,
I lie in disbelief.

Sitting by the phone
You act like you don't know.
What's it gonna take
Just to make you break?

The first lyric track on Horizons, Impetus depicts the frustration of one fettered by the inaction of others,
but also sets the stage for the rest of the album, which focuses on personal and collective potential in life.

Hehe I could write liner notes :)

Enjoy, guys! [link]

Reminds me of The machine by them as well.

So I'm currently listening to this and following along.. I like it. I don't usually go for anything "metal" but this doesn't have that screaming thing going on that most "metal" songs I've listened to.
Apparently this band got together the year I graduated high school. xD

"I refuse to be the coal that burns in your machine."
The words speak volumes! The tension rises and falls, and rises again. Definitely puts you out there on the edge of raw emotion! Awesome!

I could totally relate to this. It's poetically simple, reflects one's desire to break away and start new, clearly stated. Good job!

I'm here
reading you loud and clear
your message...
clear as day

those bindings aren't real
but something you've conjured up
like magic
of the healing kind

paths are aplenty
both straight forward
and swirling
but alight in your eyes

I want...
a place to lay my head
where machines
run silent

you try because you care
and that is your best trait
you should never hold back from the open sky
I wish you would embrace it and fly

the stillness is a facade too...
a memory of me
something of the past
that you hold on to

relax and release
spread your wings
and never break your stride.

So... I hope you don't mind my little poem. After reading your words, I was inspired, and honestly? I can't think of a greater compliment.
