02. Frak The Gods

Music & lyrics by Periphery
Lives erased
Their memories will never surface again
Now our plan for domination is at hand
Harvest the flesh, enslave the planet they call home
For one thousand years
This is the age of new direction
No one stands in the way of our reign over this sector
That has been newly claimed

I'll evade the sun if life is given to those in the shadows
Now I must erase the sight of the living and seperate from the eyes

Swallow the ink down, might as well
We're all destined to fall off the pages we've written
Call it fate or whatever the brain will label it as
While we return to the planet
Reason with the body
The death isn't what it seems
We are now the ones to be extinct
Only forgiveness can end this

"Death, it seems" so imminent
There is nothing that can be done here
"Suppressing" the impending destruction of our race as we know

Eyes from around, they gather in disbelief
Of the air we breathe and the little we know of it
This is a time for evaluation
Collecting the mind of a conscious infinity
Accepting the consequence of the ignorance changes how you perceive

Within this a truth and a reason met with distaste
Falling from the heavens above we've been dethroned
Our lives must replay in hope of ascending peacefully
Let the violence bring us home and take us away from what we know


03. Jetpacks Was Yes!

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Periphery, Matt Murphy
These walls of time release my eyes
Move like the drift
The cries, they resonate within
The fabric tears before me break ties between the kin

Reaching for a way out of this dream
I waste my breath ascending
Fears lead me astray
The past brings them to be
What's left to carry me

But a memory
The dream endures these lies
Forever at the edge left surviving alone

What's left as I wander?
I've found a world where I am free
Inside that which is truth

What of this illusion I've come to know?
It's not the same
Holding back the distant memories
Presently I've found I am not alone
In a world of infinity sewn

I reach for a way out of this
I waste life like it's nothing but a fantasy
Fears lead me astray
The past brings them to be
What's left to carry me

Perceive beyond the seam
A soul evolves as well


04. Icarus Lives!

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Periphery, Casey Sabol
Besieged by falling dreams
Hold them tightly
Adorn my wings to thee, and use them nightly

I'm neither angel nor a demon spawn
Though some will call me God, gravity is just a law I've wrought

Hear temptation take the sky for all to see
Sheer elation to write in history

I'm neither angel nor a demon spawn
Though some will call me God, gravity is just a feeble plot

When I said I'd never kneel again, what I really meant
Was pull the pin because time is spent

Unite with ravens on their shadow flights
As my nocturnal right
Gravity is just a mortal's vice

When I said I'd never feel or see
Love and sight are last resorts for me

Hear temptation take the sky for all to see
Sheer elation to write in history

I'm neither angel nor a demon spawn
Though some will call me God, gravity is just a feeble plot

When I said I'd never kneel again, what I really meant
Was pull the pin because time is spent

Unite with ravens on their shadow flights
As my nocturnal right
Gravity is just a mortal's vice

When I said I'd never feel or see
Love and sight are last resorts for me

08. Captain On

Music & lyrics by Periphery
Somewhere beyond this sight
Nothing so clear
Reaching in endless night
Colors disappear

Separate the air we breathe
Sell the lies we all will speak

Don't ever ask the questions challenging the prophecies

Silent storm
Following the stars
Shifting form
Dwell in reverie

Resurrecton in time
We suppress every reason

Through these eyes perception bleeds mortality from my soul
Nothing can change
The reality of it all will never be left for us to find

Somewhere within the glow, enter
We fall
Holding the shadow close
Heeding the call
Solace finding even flow in life

Don't ever ask the questions challenging the prophecies
Pleasant this solitude in violent forms and waves
The final blow is struck

Moving forward on the path
Deliver us from the daggers in our hearts
Come back to the human calling
Pleasant this solitude in violent forms and waves
The final blow is struck


09. Eureka

Music & lyrics by Periphery
With or without a choice
To confront every vice without a voice
Don't deny your will to live is shattered and your hope is a jaded lie
The quality within will shape the path we choose

All this time to call the things they did a lie
Keep it to yourself so I can shove the dark aside
And I won't have to tear the honesty from everything we used to be again

The quality within will shape the path we choose
The quality we lose will form the grave we use

Legions are sent from the negative elite
Sucking life from the world we live
Shading the knowledge of oneness
And feeding the shadow within the abyss
Found internally, strength to change our misery

Shining light carves the way for their demise
Dissecting the patterns in our own lives
To shift love from experience
Remember why we have come

Silently ascending
Heeding the universal call as we grow
The shadow cast is nearing its retreat
We are now in the time of the downfall
