01. One Door

We were one and the same
the blood that once passed through your veins now flows in mine
I need someone to blame
who decided to end this game?
It's much too early right now

As I call out to you
I'm not sure if you are receiving
Can you hear me?
It should never be true, this void that I cannot break through
A heart divided in two

So I writhe through this night
gazing upwards at vacant skies
And it's too much now, I can't face this anymore
But there's no escaping, there's only one door

They say this pain will surely fade, in time it goes away
But nothing seems to change, this aching still remains
No bridge onto your side, I must wait until I die
I die

And I'll think of you from dusk 'till dawn
I'll hold my breath from night 'till morn
And I'll call upon our last embrace
Tide me over until I see your face again
Will the world explode before I hold your hand?
Will my tears bring lakes to this desert sand?
And I don't know if I can be the man that I knew, that you were


02. At The Ringing Of The Siren

I see how you live
you're so positive in your purpose, your being
While I walk alone, lost in the unknown
with nothing to hold onto
And I can't help it, I can't stop it, this constant questioning
Now I'm getting tired

So are we reborn? Does life go on? Does this life go on?
Faith now fading for you, so please renew, now please renew

Evidence, you forgot to mention
must exist if we are not to question this devotion
2000 years, on and on and counting
Falling tears, these questions still are mounting
Why are we here?

Proclaim, insist, the reason we exist, then leave us with no reason
The book I hold, the stories that are told, cannot refute the sceptic
So I call your name, I'm questioning these claims
Please give me your rebuttal
Does life go on when the body's gone? At the ringing of the siren
Hear the ringing of the siren


03. The Beaten Path

You should know that it is not my intention
to leave you alone, but if you stay it's under false pretences
The faces that come, the faces are blackened in me

Look to my past, into your future you will see
Nothing can last, so close to perfect I must leave
The faces that come, the faces are blackened in me

It wasn't fair, but that was not what I intended
I had a duty of care, and I let down those expectations
The faces that come, the faces are blackened in me

Now I don't know where I'm going, but I know that I can't stay
As I pray upon your ashes, won't someone please save me from my own hands
When's this rescue gonna come?
Can they stop me from destroying all that I love?

In familiar waters, lusting storm is blowing over
Searching for sanctity
Bound to walk this beaten path

Molded by fate, now cursed that I must plunder
Is it too late to break the spell that I've been under?
The faces that come, the faces are blackened in me

Someone please save me


04. Chasing Shadows

Claustrophobia impending, they'd see through this disguise
Symbols turn and run in horror to ridicule the eyes
Undivided concentration, it fails to bring the gains
Taunted by your own impairment, the will begins to bend

Hold on, be strong, the end will surely come
When the world will cease this fallacy

Raise your head above the water to be pushed down again
Drowning in the constant torment of those you thought were friends
Destiny is what awaits he who pushes harder still
Fight the fear of total failure, they'll never break the will

This defect is a gift, turn resentment to uplift
The wind is changing
Surrender the disguise and look past your own demise
The wind must change

And young child, don't walk away from your dreams
And young child, it's not as bad as it seems
Sticks and stones may break your bones, but only you can hurt you

As you crawl inside your shell you hide
Licking your wounds in the cover of the shadows, you renew
Desensitise your fragile mind, fortify the essence of your insides, calcified
Now you crawl out of the shadows to face those that paint with scorn

They would hold you if they could bear to wrap their arms around this aberration
Their repugnance shining clearly through
Hands are shaking, a mind of their own who you cannot disown
Unstoppable, out of control, never will you tame

Now chasing shadows, I'm chasing these shadows again


05. Beautiful Abyss

Disturbed by the impurity
It's the scar of this masquerade
There'll be no more insecurity
Once you pass through this doorway

But you knew more, your soul's paid for
This endless fight rewarded by delight

You were incarcerated within these walls, blockaded
Stuck on this meteorite, caught in this wicked wild-fight
The fumes intoxicating, the smell of sin unfading
A soul restricted by this impure enclosure of flesh and bone

Out of darkness through this night
Bathe in the oncoming light
You will hear no evil, fear no more
Rejoice you are home

Don't wait at the water's edge, it's time to step into the unknown blue
As time moves along we forget that we belong to something bigger

To know what is and what will be
To see with more than sensory
The song you'll sing is certainty
This journey begins

Move into the mist, this beautiful abyss it liberates you

Now a part of the ethereal, the celestial array
Born again in beauty impeccable, these wonders will never fade

Transcend.


06. Silence

Fortified from the cries, no need to apologise
We all know that you'll be sleeping well tonight
Hard as stone down to the bone, a face of fear you can't condone
Emotions now objectified

A friendship sewn but now it's gone
Lesson learnt I'll walk alone
This trust in you was so misplaced

When sympathy is gone, we're left to fend alone
The sympathy society once relied upon
Don't empathise today or you'll be labelled as a slave to the heart
Don't be ashamed, be devoid of caring

Now I'm aware nothing is important anymore, but time

I fear the chances of us breaking through this silence are all but less than none
And since the day we're born, we're forced to live a life so cold
It's not alright, it's not okay that our humanity is all dehumanised


07. Invert Evolution

Forward, it takes us backwards
Forward, it takes us

Beneath these misleading eyes the instinct lies
The instinct you must deny
With only yourself to blame
The circle's broke, the circle's broken

Thrive in the corporate heat
More than just stupid a piece of meat
Check your destination conforms to the equation
Falling to pieces, your own lineage
Why can't you feel the need to break into this world?

Invert evolution, revert this constitution
Invert evolution, humanity decaying

Life has become a question
Have we lost the human connection?
IQs now decay, social disarray
Corporate fallacy leads us to our own demise

Breed lunacy, breed out sanity
Dystopia awaits, a dysgenic prophecy

Forward, it takes us backwards
Forward, it takes us.


08. Astral Plane

No more identity, no more desire
Now weak from dormancy, this heart's lost its fire
So my incentive died, so I'm demoralised
Asleep behind waking eyes, fading into comatose

Falling through the astral plane, lost in purgatory
Flailing wings of disdain, condemn me so I cannot fly
Falling through the astral plane, never hear a scream
There's no waking time in this astral plane

I can't hear you
I can't see you
I can't feel you
I can't break through
I don't know how
I might fall down
I sense rain clouds
So I won't try

No expectations, no way to defeat
Past procrastination, now please conquer me
It's barely survival, this futility
Leave me in the gutter beyond the will to compete

This lethargy is calling you to come in from the light
Never thought to disappoint it
Pay the price for worshipping these walls that shield you from outside
Agoraphobia anointed

Blame my lamenting mind, blame my folly insides
This body now atrophied in everlasting comatose


09. No Road Home (Solastalgia)

Been here before, or have I?
Cannot recall
Been here before, but I can't see what I'm looking for
There's nothing left, only memories remain
And until the end, I'll search for my home

Progress haunts my dreams and I can't stop this enemy forever stalking me
And to the world I'd known I bid farewell

I am homesick while at home
I've got nowhere else to go
I reminisce of the last time that I stood on this sacred ground
Misplaced myself but I'm still here
Never thought that I would fear losing my homeland
I've lost my sacred ground

Desperate, clutching straws
Distant, at arms throw
Can't face the new world I've come to, rejecting what is before my eyes
Memories, lost and sold
Deface times of old
I reminisce of the past life
No compensation can compensate me for what I have lost
I have lost

Grave mound
Connections all fragmented to my own ground
This wound, created for your welfare, now left unbound

Tear it all down, no you can't buy this ground
Hold fast, face down, this can't be undone

This world goes to the highest bidder
We can only loose, while they desecrate

Victim of our lust, no-one we can trust
We're all longing for fortune, but somebody has got to pay
Nomad, don't belong
Aimlessly I run, never return to my past life
A vagabond born by solastalgia
I am lost, I am lost

Have I been here before?
And I'll be here nevermore
