It’s cold and dead here, in these hollows. Flooded with red, and filled with sorrow. When the fog clears, to see what we’ve done. Heaven help us, what have we become? Oh, this heart. So dark and frail, yet holding still. Lost and loveless, these shattered hands quake. Rally onward. Are we slowly drowning? Blinded by their fallen hands. Broken and frozen in place, Is there no way out of here? Lost and Hopeless, but not forever. If we can still mend these weighing hearts, will this war end? Oh My soul, Is torn apart, replaced and discard. Oh. Are we slowly drowning? Blinded by their fallen hands. Broken and frozen in place, Is there no way out of here? Are we blinded and broken? Are we?
Hold on wounds heal so cover yourself from them. Disguise your fears and bury the ash and bone. This will be your last stand alone again. So close strained eyes only time will show. Lying awake, I wonder... Am I dreaming or am I asleep? Can this be a dream? Please let me be asleep. I’d change everything, if this is... How can wounds heal when covered but still left exposed Disguising fear, I'll bury what’s left behind. How will I remain surviving when they look the same? I’ll close tired eyes, and wait for, my time to come.
Why? 02:30
Searching through all this carnage. Iʼve never felt like this before. When did I become so wretched? Was it dormant? Waiting for me? Pull them away, the ones I have lost. How can a man, cause so much distress? Is there a way to turn back the tide? Reclaim their souls, and refill my heart?
Too Late Now 04:44
Silence and guilt carries regret, our sins.  Is there no ending, where forgiving lies? Where time exposes more than our faced? Remove your stained skin, and reveal hope. Too late. We can't forget this war, and change before we run out of time again. How can time hold fast these wounds? Tied closed sewn by blatant lies, pierced still by venomous red eyes. Will your hands still hold these scars?  They don't tremble as I fall.  Lay bare my faults, release my heart.
Fading Fast 04:52
Here we are, once again. Looking down breathless. Here we are, Losing time. Can you hear me? I call out your name, Marie. Are you still there for me? Can you hear me Marie? Donʼt let me drown, further now. Anchored by twisted hands that leave me, Broken and Losing hope. How can this shell hold a soul again? When weʼre lost? Iʼm still calling in. Take my love bring me home.

Becoming The Lion Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Starting in 2010 with one man's dream, an experiment with heavy riffs and rhythmic melodies came to be. Now Becoming The Lion is taking those original melodic instrumentals and finally add vocals to fill this project out. Taking influence from progressive metal and post-hardcore bands like Deftones, Thrice and Oceansize, Becoming The Lion adds a unique twist to this crowed style. ... more
