The Great Magnet Look at the cover. That is exactly what this album is like. Beautiful. I think I need a little cry. Favorite track: The Peak.

Track Name: The Ascent
no single storm will hold any of us back
it'll take more than some spit down from the sky
we're making our escape
come hell or high water
this rock won't get the best of us

can you see yourself like nobody else?
can you feel the earth like you've never felt?
you know you just can't go back to the bottom

so take your possessions and throw them all away
they won't help you get to where you need to be
so close to victory and you've never had this chance
to be come a tale that people will tell

so can you see yourself like nobody else?
and can you feel the earth like you've never felt?
cause you know you just can't go back to the bottom
Track Name: The Peak
from the top there is no earth, only the skies above
no sign of the human race, no memory of my place
i've spent so long trying to get to here
now that we've made it, i have realized that no one is challenged by their own mind

one million times i have wished that i could find my way
i guess this just ain't what we wanted, our souls are barley here
from the top we're gazing down and i can't see my home
climbing forward is the only option, i've got to see myself survive this

moving forward
Track Name: The Descent
look down from your crown, there is no path ahead
we tried to warn you
so set to accomplish the unthinkable
no there's no way out

climbing down from the greatest challenge, finding ourselves
and if we die, remember always that time was with us
