Track Name: All Eyes on the Earth
fortune
I've figured out
the perfect plan to build
in their hours of laughing
minutes shall rewrite the course
of their lives
forever

shade (shade)
for years (for years)
we'd watch you grow
and be ok
we'd wait
for years (for years)
to watch you grow
and see you fade (we'll see you fade)

but now you see what i mean
(but now you see what i mean)
cause when i told you
that this was the end
you didn't believe me
(you didn't believe me)

that i could strike city lights
and scaling homes
and tear your civilization down
(to the ground)
precious moments turn to dust
a failing bloodline approaches
countdown

time was, time is
time is over

they charm their way with promise
with words appealing to
your honesty
your beliefs

shade (shade)
for years (for years)
we'd watch you grow
and be ok
we'd wait
for years (for years)
to watch you grow
and see you fade (we'll see you fade)

only the greater world
will see its own
(passengers of akin mind)
only the greater world
will see its own
(waves aglow, surround)

(the sound it ignites love and fire)
running for the gate
never gonna make it out alive
and I see your eyes
and feel their life
(the sound it ignites love and fire)
holding on to faith
that we're gonna make it out alive
and see the skies

(the grand outline comes down)
I didn't give permission
(please let us go)
I didn't give permission now
(please let us live)

your bloodline is
no longer

no escape
bound to drift eternally
true to space
forever moving towards the barren waste
drawn unto the vacant edge
finally
all of my thoughts
are made to manifest
bound to drift eternally
true to space
forever moving towards the barren waste
drawn unto the vacant edge

forever
Track Name: Latency and Tendencies
reaction delayed
build the shape when the time is right
douse the flame
cast the voices
step beyond the lines

they isolate
the damaged ones for all their quandaries
devastate

rest, rest, no rest

please detach from the past
it's all the same to me
don't ask
free at last
my escape into the black

destruction, decay
realities of a lost cause
bow in your loss
counter the cross
fade away

we reanimate
by the laws of variance
bow in your loss
counter the cross
for redemption

we are lost
waiting for
the perfect moment
to kill you

loss, set, rein

the reflections of
visceral tendencies
generating the act forward

recall the flame
cast the voices
step beyond the lines

they isolate
the damaged ones for all their quandaries
devastate

rest, rest, no rest

please detach from the past
it's all the same to me
just don't ask
free at last
my escape into the black

don't follow me
in my escape
Track Name: The Little Albert Experiment
(I am)

masses content with placement
subjection's shadow
living out some bizarre existence
foreign to me

rage breaks self control

violent by nature
amended for social thralldom

through imagery
I now foresee this world
lost and fading out
conditioned by the fear
turning on ourselves

dreaming I'll be
awake and free

question yourself
mimic the words of god

they would rather leave me
severed or tame
wake up tonight
let the dead reclaim
all that's been taken
they would rather leave me
in divide
so follow and wake up
tonight, it's time to walk again

resonance, resonance built
blood, innocence spilled

war, what if it came to pass
socially conditioned
violently alone

slowly we breathe
once more to be

slowly we see
slowly we can breathe
not with our eyes
not with the lungs sold
ash of the bone
ash of the torn earth
once more to live
once more we shall be

they would rather leave me
severed or tame
wake up tonight
let the dead reclaim
all that's been taken
they would rather leave me
in divide
so follow and wake up
tonight, it's time to walk again

mind over my life over mind

no reaction to the call
form my own path, made to walk
a reminder for us all
this procedure, bares no truth at all
Track Name: Lost in Our Escape
eyes
it's always in the eyes
below the lights
we're in trouble
play
laugh it all away
below the night
shit is always on

(haunted, drawn to the melody)
fashion holds you
to a different world
(feeling one with the energy)
so watch my love
undress your perfect style

(no we can't)
wait so long
can't take anymore
lost in our escape
passion precedes the smile

(haunted, drawn to the melody)
fashion holds you
to a different world
(feeling one with the energy)
so watch my love
undress your perfect style

feel the wave
come with me
we both explode

the walls come down
we stand revealed
to move in sync as one

resist me now
you've figured me out
resist me now
you can't let me down

no matter the street or side
we live out in the night
bridge the space
between our ways

lines
we always cross the line
below the lights
we're so beautiful
play
laugh it all away
below the night
shit is always on

(haunted, drawn to the melody)
fashion holds you
to a different world
(feeling one with the energy)
so watch my love
undress your perfect style

(no we can't)
wait so long
can't take anymore
lost in our escape
passion precedes the smile
Track Name: Screen Scenarios
places, the camera feeds the role
rig the lights
the stage set one more time
for giant stars asleep

breath, refrain
disbelief, you've come for me
lift the screen
disbelief, you've come for me
hold the present frame

between the energy
look on the bright side
play the honoree
every second of the way
disguised inside
the pattern makes it out alive

unforeseen
the unlikely prospect
of my heart igniting
patient learning
a reflection of the love we lost

its all what you make it
but how come it's so different now
over, in rapid time
every view rendering hope defied

all my life
holding on inside
to the light
in your eyes

(all my life)
if only life could be designed
for just a moment to unfold

(all your life)
we'd see beyond the weight of the world
and forever put the past aside

(all our life)
see beyond the open road
whatever makes your body fly
cause you've got to let it go
and carry on

rig the lights
the stage set one more time
for giant stars asleep

breath, refrain
disbelief, you've come for me
lift the screen
disbelief, you've come for me
hold the present frame

between the energy
look on the bright side
play the honoree
every second of the way
disguised inside
the pattern makes it out alive


Senses caressed
Is all we need on screen

Senses caressed
Is all I need on screen
Track Name: Spineless
violence, relentless
fuck it, show me blood
this is what we came for
the violence, relentless
fuck it, show me blood
this is what i want from you

blood

let's rip the fucking world apart
come on

burn with the path you chose
you will know fear alone
reaping what you have sewn
follow me

(and) rip this world apart

so when you got the signs
that you were in charge
you were wrong

coward
take your place
you coward
fuck with me

speak from shadows
infect your circle

laughing
as you spit hatred
from your sheltered room
you're fucking pathetic
come get a taste of violence
fuck it, show me blood
this is what I came to see

die

forces now descending
greater than this world
favor me
with fortune you'll
get sick
you'll get sick
fuck it
you'll get sick and waste away
this is why i came here
to return what was given to me
now we'll see
who is here to stay


sweet, the taste of vengeance
followed by your downfall

rip this world apart
Track Name: Reflections
(Instrumental)
Track Name: The Counter Shift
failing to put in genuine effort
for the time, the end is official
perilous, the cost is way too high
and only in the way
steel frame, distant sight
and so unbreakable
the pattern by which you will now decide
and learn to let someone else be free

there is no escape from the past this time
fuck the bed that you're making
wake up in a burning grave
never mind all the times that we would fly
cut the chord, bend the fabric's essence
and moderate the lies


(oh god )
(oh my god)
they're coming out
bound for generations
the shadows of a fallen kind
back out, back out again
the bleeding souls
infected
draining the life of everything

we the ones who redefine the light
still we walk alone
because of all the things in life
the curse is in the knowledge
we the ones who redefine the light
still we walk alone
before waking up
close your eyes

we are the prototypes of the universe
We are alone

only believe the silence in your heart
cross the tragedy

failing to put in genuine effort
for the time, the end is official
perilous, the cost is way too high
and far beyond the pay
steel frame, distant sight
and so unbreakable
the pattern by which you will now decide
and learn to let someone else be free

blood, faith, christ, lies, blood
there is no god
Track Name: Infinitely Inward
My eyes open
but i can't feel anything
broken and confused
tell me how do i escape this dream?
didn't ask to be here
but i feel like it's too late to leave
trapped inside this world
or trapped inside of me?
so cold and alone it's clear to me
struggle is futile and my future's bleak
in a place where time collides
forsaking the world
crossing the divide

of belief
memories
deceiving
in this place
i feel real

dreams are made
to find the shore
someway I've recognized
my image has gone awry

don't wake up

dreams are made
to find the shore
someway implied
it's going to be alright


(I will fall to meaning, I will fall beneath)
from it all, the magic fades
withering beneath the world
way beyond the reach of the water
forgive me all, I'm leaving

like all things sound
they later move on
likewise
my life has gone
patient, waiting for change
to reach me
trade

taken from the dream
endlessly
just let me be
let me sleep

wait and see
this consciousness
will soon break
don't wake up

dreams are made
to find the shore
someway implied
it's going to be alright

(I will fall to meaning, I will fall beneath)
from it all, the magic fades
withering beneath the world
way beyond the reach of the water
forgive me all, I'm leaving

won't somebody come pinch me?
wake me up from this bad, bad dream
I'm getting lost in this world between
stuck in purgatory
oh this must be heaven
how spining round
don't know which way is up or down
somewhow i'm standing with my hands to the ground
and i'm trying to reach for some air
don't know how i'm going to breathe
and i'm trying to reach for some air
don't know how i'm going to breathe

reach for some air
I can't breathe
Track Name: City Limits
I never meant to make
you feel a life of bother
so many miles apart
and out of sight
show me a way beyond this lonely ocean
we'll make the sky ignite
then just sail away
gonna go away

you were never meant to see
the soloist in me

always and forever
i will give you
all my love and my heart
for the day, all the way

we can't remember
just what it is to vibe and be ourselves
we can't remember
the feeling of being right here

we are the world
united
we are the world

wake up my sleeping child
follow in majesty
you'll never get to see
the soloist imagined in your dreaming

always and forever
i will give you
all my love and my heart
for the day, all the way

no delay
every night
seems bright
sings goodbye
we can take off
and fly

always and forever
i will give you
all my love and my heart
for the day, all the way

gonna give you all my love world
gonna give it to you now
all for the day
gonna give it to you all the way
always and forever
all for the day
gonna give it to you all the way you know
see where your heart has gone, gone for now
you're never meant to see
you'll never ever be what you love
give into me now
gonna make my heart sing
you'll never get to see
you'll never ever be what you love
for the world
you'll never get to see where you are now
Track Name: Dispose of Your Optimism
this nebulous acquiescence
transposes my song,
subtle modes of separation
becoming, multiplying
ascending upward
stemming from roots, within

recapture me
long before surrender
(deny, I will give)
optimism paves our disconnect

shattered, this wave of expectance
divided eyes
subtle thoughts of separation
elevating, magnifying
ever
stemming from roots, within

recapture me
long before surrender
(deny, I will give)
optimism paves the the disconnect

so just stay with me
we lose control
stay with me
we've lost control
through vacant promise


and in the wake of my transmission
the only thought that comes to mind
are we alone?
heads out the gate
all my life I've been waiting to feel this love

wait for the call

I'm waiting
I'm holding on
to notions of a former belief
I redeemed
fade out behind
the quiet release of the reins
sadly, I just let it die

no, my time has not decayed
sustaining reasons for my salvation
forgiveness is not impossible

dispose of this sense
another innocent motion
suffers the consequences

lost in pain
resound
descending

senseless
come detached
into the modern
cycle of existence, forever
powerless
come detached
into the modern
interval of existence, forever

ailing me
nothing can be replaced
separate

repugnance and disdain
rooted deep within

I try to gain control
I'm lost within this mental labyrinth
with all the things we know
I ask myself this question
are we alone?
in this whole wide universe
are we alone?
I don't know


are we alone?
heads out the gate
all my life I've been waiting to feel this love
Track Name: Clockwork
roads aligning
distant memories come forth
bound by perception
senses, and obscure direction

the mind, assured
by evidence
designed, result
no matter, either way
experience moves forth



chains withholding me, jade
we know by now
our discerning is relative
to all that we see
through an idea
we're assured, however

to survive
we'll survive
by the clock
I'll find a way out

change or grown
despite my doubt
of whether I'm alone
or not
the world knows
its source is growing old
and thin
bitter over the fact
that I'm still here
I'm over being alive
(over being alive)
being alive
