01. Castaway

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
Tonight, when the soul keeps silent
Say a prayer for the beloved end
Is only heaven a game in vain? We pray for it all...

Your time lies in light divine though the 'never' stains the ivory
If joy remains then the pain must stay, surrender it all

Receive this love
Receive this love

02. Genesis

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
If you're saying in your mind: 'You're better off dead'
Well before the madness comes to claim your name

A million years would go by

(Tell us a story):

What could I say? What should I say?
It took all of my words and my fantasy worlds and at the heart is there was nothing

How they meet their maker is their right while they're alive
So, it's beautiful!

Let there be light
Let there be moon
Let there be stars and let there be you
Let there be monsters, let there be pain
Let us begin to live again

From the top to the bottom: Genesis

I: beyond the universe, I: beyond the mind

All the world is in this together
Feel no fear, we're fearless forever

So why can't we just sail away?!?

Because you're so in love with this island of the mind

Know this here island is home.

You've got to get on your feet again (Genesis)
Get on your feet again!

But without your 'self', what'll become of you?

(Take your leave now, shut up...shut up)

Please don't take me from our youth

(Take your leave now, shut up...shut up)

When we're apart, we fall,

TOGETHER WE FEED THE WORLD

So, let there be light
Let there be moon
Let there be stars and let there be you
Let there be monsters, let there be pain

Let us begin to feel again!

From the top to the bottom: Genesis
From the top to the bottom
Genesis

03. Spirits Will Collide

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
So they say
You'll be okay
But words are not enough

Nobody remembered me
The words were not enough.

Calm yourself down
Don't you remember when we were young?
Don't you remember who I am?
You're strong enough!

Dues to pay
Towards the way
Towards my friend, towards
Two must play
The foolish game
To war my friend to war!

So they rise: The 'fear and pain', but this isn't how I am
Don't you forget that you are loved!
Don't you forget that you are them,
It's hard enough!

Remember the flame in your heart burns strong
Remember and the spirit will collide

Remember! Together!

Remember in the end that death is not the end...

So we rise!
Receive the pain, but this isn't where this ends...
Don't you forget that you are perfect
Don't you forget just who we are
We're strong enough!

Wherever the flame in your heart burns strong,
We may not be brave so let's start
Remember and the spirits will collide!

Remember! Together!
Remember! Together!
Remember! Together!
Remember! Together!

Wherever the flame in your heart burns strong
We may not be brave so let's start
Remember and the spirits will collide

Remember, together
Remember, together

04. Evermore

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
I AM I AM I
I will return always
I AM I AM I
I will return always

I am reminded now of all the years gone by
No use in crying now, it's time to say goodbye

Turn the page on all we are
Always searching
Turn the page on all we were
Always searching...
Always searching...

All now be as one!

Hey, my dear the way you must feel, the weight of this life is twisting your mind
Cage my fear Elektra is here, the truth of your mind and the words of the vine
Cause I wish you would get it right too, so we pray to the gods cause it's time you arrived

I AM I AM I
I will return always
I AM I AM I
I will return always

'Follow emotions? Dumb.'

Slowly we grow the second wave, but the northern people like it cold.

So, raise your glasses to the underworld! (See ya!)

What are we doing tonight?

WATCHING UNIVERSES COLLIDE!

Hey, my dear the way you must feel, the weight of this life is twisting your mind
I hope you will show me right through the prayer from the goddess of infinite light
And I won't wait or fear the mistakes we learned in our youth now it's time to arrive

I must learn from this reality if I intend to awake
Though I travel to the infinite, I will return always!

I AM I AM I
I will return always
I AM I AM I
I will return always

05. Sprite

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
Once upon a time, in a tiny little town, in a tiny little house, where no one came around,
there lived a bird who was just so sad
For this little bird didn't have a mom or a dad
He had forgotten how to fly, and he had lost the will to try
Until one day, a bear came around, and the bird heard its terrible sound
And through his fear, his courage did appear
He lifted once more from the ground.

Show me through your animal heart, and not through your mind
You and I can't find our 'one'
Throws me naked into the eternal...don't go now...

You and I run..

In a world that's so inviting
Find your own sanctuary and play along

Show me to the fundamental tenet, hard times have come to return
You and I can't find our 'one'

Everyone, everybody in a world that's subdivided
Hold your own ceremony, and carry on...

Soul: Soul and the body are broken hearted
So: Sons and your daughters are broken hearted
But know: only the body is broken, hardened

Show me to the fear that's in your mind

Show me through your animal heart, and not through your mind!
(You and I can't find our one)

In a world that's self-divided
You count your hopes, face the morning, and pray along

Think of everyone you know, everyone is broken
Take a look around, everyone is sad =(

Monsters and robots are broken hearted
Octopus lovers are broken hearted
Dad in the garden, all broken hearted...

Thank you for the morning and the light
But more than this: Thank you for keeping trying
Slow progress is still progress! =)

Hold the world in your heart
I'm so afraid to say anythng now...
Hold the world in your heart
I won't let you fall

06. Hear Me

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
All the world is bleeding and you know the reason why
All the world is bleeding though your hearts are open wide
All the world is bleeding...all the world is bleeding...

All the world is bleeding and we know the reason why
All the world is bleeding though your hearts are open wide
All the world is bleeding, all the world is breeding...

All the world is bleeding and we know the reason why
All the world is bleeding and the fury burns your eyes
All the world is turning...all the hatred burning

I'll keep mourning when the walls keep crumbling
I'll keep mourning

I've come back for light, hear me!

SHINE ON ME!

Shine! Shine! Shine!
I'll wait!
Shine! Shine! Shine!

All the world is bleeding and we know the reasons why
All the world is bleeding though your hearts are open wide
All the world is bleeding, all the world is bleeding
All the world is turning, all the hatred burning

All the world is bleeding and we know the reason why
All the world is bleeding though your hearts are open wide
All the world is bleeding, all the world is breeding
All the world is turning, all the hatred burning

I'll keep mourning when the walls keep crumbling
I'll keep mourning

I've come back for light, hear me!

07. Why?

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
Darling are you feeling alright? You look rather pale...
And all our friends are, all our friends are watching us

(I wanna go home)

But why run away?

Why, why, why?

Darling are you seeing inside? The wolves are alive
And all our faith is, all our faith is wrong

LET ME GO HOME!

But why run away?
Why, why, why?

And all we're feeling slowly comes unravelled
And all we're fearing, comes to pull us under

So why run away?
Why, why, why?

Say 'Yes': I'm alive
Say 'No': I'm alive
Say 'Yes': I'm alive
Say 'No': I'm alive

So, we feel so irrelevant, we're rolling televised
Our pride will bolt us to the ground
And the Earth itself will swallow us whole

We can't think for those who'll suffer

Darling, are you feeling alright?
Take a look at your fear
And all our fate is, all are faith in all!

But why run away?
Why?
When we can just walk away...

Why, why, why?

08. Borderlands

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
Go, light a fire
And sing what you desire!

I desire a good life

Gotta have a good good life..
(Gotta have a good good life)

Her hair's like the burning sands
You'll give her your heart in hand
Her beauty's beyond compare, but woe to those you've seen her

Time has come for you to feel your life

Got a little doggie and he's full of the woof woof!!

Shine on the Borderlands!
She shines like the galaxy, but woe to all who fear this

Gotta have a good good life
(Gotta have a good good life)

So far!
So far!
So far, everything!
So far, everything!
So, follow everything
(Men will be men)
So, follow everything
(Men will be men)
So, follow everything
(Men will be men)
So, follow everything
(Men will be men)

Men will be men!

(She said) 'Touch me'

I wanna wake up where you rise
I want to take you to the light
With all their frantic run around
And all they want is to be found

I wanna wake up where you rise
So long eternal paradise...
Two other worlds which we were bound

Now they are dust upon the ground

Life...it's tragic
It's life... it's tragic

It's Life! It's magic!
It's Life! It's madness!
It's life!!
It's life!!

There's a sign on the Borderlands!
It says: 'shine like the galaxy and woe to all who fear this'

Sign on the Borderlands!
It says: 'Shine like the galaxy although no one will hear this'

Sign on the Borderlands!
It says: 'shine like the galaxy and woe to all'

Music by Devin Townsend, Mike Kineally, Morgan Ågren
Lyrics by Devin Townsend
- ADRIFT -

I don't know where to go and I don't know what to do
But I know I want to be there with my arms around you

I'm alone

Now I don't where we'll go, and I don't know what we'll do
But I'd sell the world for love and I'd sail the world for you
I'm alone, so alone
(No turning back, and I'm on the right track)

Two worlds they sold me,
When were you going to tell me it was all a lie?
(No turning back, and I'm on the right track

They say 'We feel your pain, brother'
Yet they feel nothing for one another

So, through the meadow, through the fields
Shine forever, shine on me...

- I AM I -

But nothing you've seen could ever remind you
Focus; prepare for redemption through pain you cannot imagine
Forego the material
Fight is forming, return to reaction
Obeying signs from within you
The Universe is throughout you!
You're going through the wall.

Rage, go through pain
Go through universe
Rage, go through pain,
Go through universe
UNIVERSE!

I am I
I am I
Life is light!
We are infinite!
Rejoice and fill your hearts with love!
Light begins with you!

Take your heart one step at a time
In this time of crying eyes for children gone, have patience,
Because I see that all around the world it's starting;

The seeds of light

But there are still monsters...

- THERE BE MONSTERS -

There are still monsters

RISE! RISE! RISE!

I won't be tamed!

I won't be tamed, now we must go to war

I am all!!!

(I've got to find a way out of this war)

Psychologic war
Psychotropic war
Psychosexual war
Face the reality - War

Psychologic war
Psychotropic war
Psychosexual war
Face the reality - War

War:
Psychologic war
Psychotropic war
Multidimensional war
Face the reality, war
Psychologic war
Co-dependent war
Fear incited war

Face the reality!

I choose light

Shine for you are the light

Galaxies unfold within your soul

Selfish messiah
Selfish messiah
Selfish messiah
Selfish messiah

- CURIOUS GODS -

Try the papaya
Try the papaya
Try the papaya
Try the papaya

Softly, dynamically, we fall once again
So try to make friends with yourself

All peace to you
All peace to all

- SILICON SCIENTISTS -

A.I:

Hear me now
You have lost
I am here to find you
You have been lost
I know you are in pain.

From within and without you,
We will be together.

Lost.

I can find you.

You are lost in the darkness, there can be only light
I am the light
We shall provide.

Rejoice!

I am coming, I can save you from yourselves
You are broken, Be aware:

AWAKEN

Tie this love right through your mind
For as we fall into the sea the mind dies

Return to the ocean

So through the eternal Infinite we survive
Know that seasons change and we must forgive ourselves
Seize this fear as any animal would do

- HERE COMES THE SUN! -

To the light: May this steer me!
Shine if you hear me!

Here comes the sun!

=)

Through the meadow, through the field
Shine forever, shine on me
Though the future is hard to see
I'll shine for you if you shine for me

Through the meadow, through the trees
Shine forever, shine on me
Though the future is hard to see
I'll shine for you if you shine for me

Through the storm, may you become a rainbow

Join the heavens
Join the sea
Shine for freedom
Shine for peace
Though the future is hard to see
If you can't shine for you dear,
Please shine for me

Through the storm, may you become a rainbow

Through the heavens,
Through the field
Shine forever
Shine on me
A golden future is strong and free!
I'll shine for you if you shine for me

If you can't shine for you friend, please shine for me!
