01. Drive

We don't need a savior to be saved
We only need a clear head and a drive
We walk with our heads high
and make our time worthwhile

People with plans, they are shouting
They intend to be cruel on us all
But now it is time for the living
to be strong

Righteousness teases the static of mind
Control over freedom makes one blind
We sever our minds from the facts that do matter
It's life now
Forever and never done


02. Regenesis

Fighting storms with good intentions
Distant thunder sounds
Observe, listen, join the restless
It's fine

The most beautiful thing we can experience
Is the mysterious
We measure life as a formula
So cold, so rational, so much to uncover
So little time
When infinity stares you in the eyes

Something as fragile as a nightly vision
Eagerly waiting to choose a side
Uplifting or downgrading with the snap of a finger
The mind's a powerful tool
With the world at your fingertips
Puzzled but guilty we see our world collapse
Time is up [8x]
Embrace the regenesis
This time there'll be a foe more relentless

Bring them down
As their feet touch the ground
We're fading

Close your eyes
Feel the sun burn pitiless down on your face
Are you a traveler?
One who carries it all, from burden to blessing?
This defiance leaves you crawling on all fours
Or makes one stronger

This blood red horizon
Colors our destiny
A painted portrait of our mortality

We've become what we despise

Fighting storms with good intentions
Distant thunder sounds
Observe, listen, join the restless
It's fine


03. Denying Gravity

Transcending towards the leap
Into the right direction

As solid matter I swarm around
In incomprehensive substance I dwell
Diverting from my path
Spinning through my ego
I push and scratch my line into shape

But parallels are shifting
Inconsistently
The atmosphere is changing
Inconsequently
Align or intersect
I pull and scratch
Twist and turn
My way through the years

Parading in
Equilibrium
Can't I memorize the perfect map

Descending towards the leap
Into the right direction

The absolute changed to relativity
At the aphelium of my lifeline
Heading for the equinox
Reflecting on the past
Parallels and circles
Omnia moventur

Tip the scales to be linked again
To the path that's mine to pave
Can I prove my worth, the distance to my destiny?
Beyond the boundaries of perception
Lay salvation or mental starvation

I pull, push
Parallels and circles
Weaving the thread to
My centre of gravity

Circular


04. Illumination

Begging to differ
Your reign will soon be over
The recipe for your demise
Has been boiled down

You need the courage
To get the heart you always needed
The road will be long
But soon you'll get there

Shameless, shameless
Trickery makes us timeless
But we never had a choice
And we never had a voice

Violence, violence
Blood red colored romance
And your scent gives you away
Gives us all away

Wide awake
The secret


05. Stream Of Consciousness

First ray of light
Introduction to being aware of
Taking turns in shifting from fiction
To living in constraint

It's real but changing
My form is changing
My consciousness changes

Waves of moments
Patterns of phrases, endless or elusive
They keep being continuous
Being aware of what it takes to live
Is keeping me sane, so sane

The art is born, the eyes wide open
Diffuse colors projected on your retina
Watch the play, divert the primal shapes
Primal shapes in disarray

The art is born, for we are becoming
Slaves of thought
Using the stream of consciousness

Prove the senses
Taste the ambience of feelings
And make contact
Here you are
Aware
In direct confrontation
With your inner self

The constrained reason
Has to be erased

Here I am
Exploring and expanding my senses

Constructive building, new minds
The tools are given
BY nurture or nature
Time to apply the physics
New seeds
These wheels turn forever
Endeavour after emotion
We are all part of this perspective
We recreate and we contemplate our answers

Conquer as you strive for a victory
On fortified feelings they are part of you

First ray of light
Introduction to being aware of
Taking turns in shifting from fiction
To living in constraint
Constrained reason has to be erased

Currents of emotions, electricity
Behind the eyes, machines are running
Organic, continuous
Conducting the sounds into feelings
Sights into predictions
Reliving, observing
The worlds endless exchange
Meridian of the moment


06. Upwards

Shedding this skin
A shadow remains
To be reborn again
Out of the ashes
Stretching out to cover the world

Applying cavity
Denying gravity
It makes no difference at all

To slide between the rocks of time
To remember the snake I was
To live in the perfect storm
And remember who I am


07. Circular

We are alive, to see the end of us
Struggling to reach the finish line
To designate our time to questionable lives
So called meaningless, still there's no answer
For this vulnerable reality comes
Can't we break the cycle in which we reside?

Trigger the silence and make up your mind
See what's inside
Into shimmering sleep, I risk it all
It takes the soul out of me, can't change for good
Falling back into patterns, my destiny
Ambitions in me put to shame

The faceless have come, serving the cycle
Feeding the urge for security
Oppression suppressed
Expression is a form of art condemned
We need to control our second nature
Creating artificial projections of life
In which our instincts will succumb

We're building a new world
And you kneel down to welcome the meaningless
Silence is timeless
And finally we're breaking out

Objective achieved, the perfect machine
We're drawing circles every day
It takes only one step to be on your way
Reflection, our time's up
And over and over again
Again, again

Trying to break out, escape
Feel the rush, just like everyone
Look back within
Then I feel a little closer
To the thief inside of me

I censor my flaws
But it's only a matter of time
Before the walls tumble down
Did I get any closer?
Wake up, take it all
Only to lose the things I love
When I fall
Did I get any closer?


08. Millstone

Hold still, it swiftly passes
Innocence
Tread fast on known paths
And be firm
Strangeness is my grace
Remain silent

Solace, a comfort we embrace
Remembrance shattered to pieces
In this old bent frame
Sketches of a visionary mind
Tainted and washed out
A fresh breath to inhale

Kaleidoscope
Reveal the pinnacle
Of what's deep down
Buried by numbers
The huntsman chased down
With his back turned to the wall

The summit
Climb it
Watch the colors blend
While you fall down
It all fades to grey

Flesh and bone
Take this moment to remember

When you gaze behind a corner,
Another one awaits

Such a horror to break it down
This place is blank to begin with

Hold still, it swiftly passes
Innocence
Tread fast on known paths
And be firm
Strangeness is my grace
Remain silent

Flesh and bone
Take this moment to remember
Your name


09. Touching The Absolute

Genetic code broken
Alpha and omega
Mathematical approach
Where does the end begin?

Code of life cycle
I am breathing
Swallow sins like the wind
Breathes yours

Attraction, reaction, the pace is fast
Fast enough to cross the fine line
Of what's there to understand

Cruel but righteous, incomprehensible
The everlasting search for answers

Momentum, the greatest symphony ever written
Unsurpassed sculpture of breathtaking beauty
Source of extreme fear, pain and passion
Undeniable mastership
Mother nature

Womb of all, tomb of all
Paragon landscape, grim parricidal entities
Relegation of a species, degradation of a precious gift
Our destiny is just a futile part of the master plan

Surely there'll be a revelation
Surely a new awareness will form
Lack of intervention will cause failing all the same
Time for change

Do any of us realize
The perspective of our lives ahead?
Huge distances to overcome
Not aware of all the answers to let go
Just let go

Shedding this skin
A shadow remains
To be reborn again
Out of the ashes
Stretching out to cover the world

Denying gravity
Applying cavity
It makes no difference at all

To slide between the rocks of time
To imagine the snake you were
To live in the perfect storm
And remember who you were
