Arron Johnson You can tell how much hard work ATA puts into their music. You can feel the emotion behind it, on top of it being just the kind of heavy I like, this EP stomps many of my favorite bands EPs/Albums to date. A band full of extremely talented musicians at every aspect, and a local fanbase that has the utmost respect for Await The Arrival. Amazing musicians, Amazing music.
10/10 Favorite track: Deception ft. Noah Curry of Rise and Revolt.

Track Name: Maybe Someday ft. Josh Warman of Aviyn
I swore I'd never look back
Another lie told in my youth
And a series of broken rear-view mirrors
All haunted by reflections of you
It's about time I faced my fears
Turning around 180 degrees
I can't live life steering clear
And my conscience is assaulting me

You don't have to change your ways for me
To see that you are human just like me
Your emotions lead you evil places
But all can be redeemed

No one's perfect but we live for a reason
Breathe in another chance to change with the seasons

There is redemption for those who seek it
Another chance to change with seasons
I'll do for you what has been done for me
And offer you forgiveness to grow with the trees

WE CAN GROW WITH THE TREES
Blegh

I hope you see what you have done to me
I put myself aside and grow with the trees

No one's perfect but we live for a reason
Breathe in another chance to change with the seasons

I believe in second chances so I'll offer one to you
I'll offer you one thousand if it's what I have to do
I believe in second chances so I'll offer one to you
I'll offer you one thousand if it's what I have to do
Blegh
Track Name: Stuck In Bronze 5
Trapped in a cage of skin
Worse than what lies beneath
Born out of wedlock
And into sin
The mirror is all I see
I could never live up to the man I think should be
Surrounded by measuring sticks as high as the eye can see
My mother didn't love me enough to give my father's identity

So many apologies for the things I've said and done
How could a savior love me after the things I did when I was young?
It's I who makes me sick, man
I'm just tryna' measure up
Doing everything I can but it is not enough

I will never measure up
I will never measure

Son, look to me
Son, look to me

You're never too far gone
You're never too far gone
With the bloodshed on the cross
the victory is won

Move!

You are stronger than this!
You are stronger than this!

If you're pleasing the world
Then you're wasting your time
And if you think I'd approve
Then you're living a lie
You know I loved you so much
That I'd surrender and die
I wish you'd care for what matters
And stop wasting your life

Stop wasting your life

Blegh

If we broke our mirrors, then we could see clearly
How could I be so self absorbed?
How could you bear with the failings of someone so wretched
Forgive us, for we knew exactly what we were doing

If you broke your mirrors, then you could see clearly
Track Name: If Lying Was An Olympic Sport, You'd Be A Gold Medalist
You, get out of my face
You, get out

My mind has become such a dark place
I'm always stuck between a rock and a hard place
I'm always left empty, longing for the past
My brighter days behind me, I'll never get them back
You chose a life of misery
A better life is in reach but it would cost too much
The way you accept less, the way you reject love
I gave my everything, was that not enough?

If you weren't aware
This is all your fault
We stand here so disgusted
By the way you call my name
In the darkest hour
You stand there in all your treachery
Don't touch my friends and don't touch me

I'm sorry for all unrighteousness
When pain overcomes my compassion
I'm sorry for all unrighteousness
Be thankful that these are words and not actions

You callin' me a liar?
I AIN'T CALLIN' YOU A TRUTHER

You're dead to me
Blegh
Track Name: Deception ft. Noah Curry of Rise and Revolt
Blegh

Let's clear the air
It's time you told the truth
Your traps and snares may have worked before
But we know what you're now living for
I've come prepared and you'll never step foot in my way
You can spread your lies, there's no truth in what you have to say

You never took my place, you only warmed my seat
You may think that you are God, but you'll fall before his feet
I was at that show, witnesses can tell
You looked to your own heaven then put me through hell
There is only one truth and so many lies
Floating around the world for the lost to find

Swerve
Hit the road
Swerve
Hit the road

Get behind me
Track Name: Idolizer
All who make idols are nothing
In his sight
And the things that they treasure are worthless
In his eyes
(x2)

It all falls down
The king takes the crown
Watch falsehoods die
With hands held high
(x2)

Those who would speak up for them
Are blind and ignorant
Who shapes a god and casts an
idol which can profit nothing?
Those who will be put to shame
Such craftsmen are only human beings
Let them come together and try to take their stand
They will be brought down, they will be brought down

Terror and shame, terror and shame
H'what
Terror and shame, terror and shame
H'what!?
Terror and shame, terror and shame
H'what!?
Terror and shame, terror and shame
H'what!?
To terror and to shame and you're the only one to blame, go!
Turn from your ways or die

It all falls down
The king takes the crown
Watch falsehoods die
With hands held high
(x2)

All who make idols are nothing
In his sight
And the things that they treasure are worthless
In his eyes
Go!
Track Name: Compassion
Hear me
Oh, please, let me share this with you
We failed to reach God's perfect standard
Throughout all history
We had the task to keep his laws
But we were not sufficient
Then the Holy One came down
To set us free

I've been saved, I've been saved
From a worthless place
I have seen, I have seen
And my soul's been redeemed
Oh, Father, cleanse me

There is so much more than this world

He turned this world upside down so we could live forever
Die to ourselves and live for him
Proclaim his name fearlessly
Throughout the world, giving hope to all

He came down, live a perfect life,
And took the death we deserved
Our sins nailed upon the cross so we could live free
The blood ran red, the sin washed white
So we could make it to the other side
No one deserves a second chance, this world shall pass away

I've been saved, I've been saved
From a worthless place
I have seen, I have seen
And my soul's been redeemed
Oh, Father, cleanse me

I've been saved, I've been saved
From a worthless place
I have seen, I have seen
And my soul's been redeemed
Oh, Father, cleanse me

He saved my life and he can save yours
Savior, savior
My savior, my savior
