January 2013 single release version of Novation featuring vocals from former front men Spencer Haynes & Chaz Barnes.



This is the way its meant to be
my decision to free my soul
believe in yourself when all those around you have proved themselves hollow
I've seen it and breathed it and i cannot stay here no more
we parted and we are now free

you seek comfort and solace
and you long for their arms around you
you can only see, what you want to see
free your eyes from this pain and tyranny

I fled in silence, as i built up my stubborn defenses
against all advice.
lost my site, my direction and free will

Whats happening to me?
why cant i recognise what i am
I'm the monster that's killing my world

Break? for all that was sacred
for all of the love that we gave it
We Scream

If you birth it then why would you leave it alone
as you're watching it burn do you feel t he pain?
if you left it then start to believe it you fool
as you're watching it drown do you feel no shame

Break dreams and bones all the same as
break hearts and skulls like they're nothing
you save this land for your children
You're not a hero

I promised myself no shame
a lackluster being
I kept on missing the point oh
my eyes stare in to the sky as i decide to walk away

For gods sake pull yourself together, you see
because now it is now or never
you messed up, you fucked up it goes to show that brothers are here forever

And if i cant find a way to contain myself
I'll bleed my heart out, just bleed my heart out
and if i never find a way, away from feeling
cold without a doubt, screaming my god damn lungs out

I will scream my god damn lungs out
This is the way its meant to be

Feeding you all the thoughts inside my head, but they were all wrong
remember the last things that i said? a lack of control
Do you feel no shame?

I wanted to find a way to the end
I wanted to pull myself from the sand
and everything comes together and our dreams will meld to form a new horizon

believe me when i say
i regret all the past, the years that i wasted
regret all the lives i tore apart in the name of love
how could i be so cold?
my mind was clouded by your imperfect dream

Utilising hard hitting frontmanship from Jay Shields, Kai’s soaring hook filled clean vocals, guitar riffs that sway from heavy groove to epic melody, and the laser tight percussion of Ben Atkinson; Subversion like to dabble in the arts of odd time signatures spliced with huge thought inducing soundscapes. ... more
