Track Name: Isolated
Floating here, endlessly.
A shimmering gem amongst a sea of black.
Wandering aimlessly.
I wonder if my steps will leave a trace.

Isolated.
We are third in line.
Held in place, frozen in time.
When will we escape, or will we be left behind?

I have always wondered where we are
(where we are)
and now I know we are nowhere at all.
Just another piece of dust
(another piece of dust).
Left floating here alone, we become what we must.

I can see time is our true enemy.
Silence, comply.
Warranting destruction.
Follow me.
It seems like eternity
since we have been one, together.

Don't take this all for granted.
Don't make the same mistakes as me.
Floating endlessly.
I wonder if my steps will leave a trace.

We are nowhere at all.
Remember, we have done this all before.
We can't forget that this is real.
Floating here, we are just human.
We are lost, yet we find our path.
Human.
Somewhere in this eternal black.

I have always wondered where we are
(where we are)
and now I know we are nowhere at all.
Just another piece of dust
(another piece of dust).
Left floating here alone, we become what we must.

I can see, time is our true enemy.
Silence, comply.
Warranting destruction.
Follow me.
It seems like eternity
since we have been one, together.
Alone.

One together.
Alone.
If we escape, you will be left behind.

Don't take this all for granted.
Don't make the same mistakes as me.
Floating endlessly.
I wonder if my steps will leave a trace.

If we could see beyond the pale blue sky,
perceive the truth of time,
watch the chaos slowly fall in line.
Would we wonder what the future brings,
or what the past will mean?
Just know your steps could leave a trace.
Track Name: Silent Sentry
Always watching, but never around.
I feel cold and sink to the ground.
I can sense it, but I can't see it.
It wraps a chain around my heart,
convincing me that the end is a start.
I feel a disconnect from all I know.

This power shackles me so I gasp for air.
They tell me (they tell me)
help is there,
but all I’ve seen is despair.
I've felt the autumn breeze
and I've let sand sink beneath my feet.
Now I can't feel a thing.

I take my every step along this crooked path.
Why do you stay with me?
Stay with me.

A light shines and you're blind,
you don't see what I see.
(What I see).
The darkness never leaves,
it hides in all you see;
all you see in your memories.

The darkness, it never leaves.
It hides in all you see.
It takes a breath with you when you wake.
It takes the colour from the smile you fake.
(From the smile you fake).
It's with you when you wake.

Always watching, but never around.
Silent sentry, calm and profound.
You hold your will,
so tranquil and still.
I break the chains off my heart every day,
keeping my mind from drifting away,
but I know now it will never leave.

Silent sentry, why do you walk with me?
I’m falling, I'm falling behind.
It haunts me and leaves me in pieces.
I swear I’ll never give in to you.
Silent sentry, why do you walk with me?
I’m falling, I'm falling behind.
It haunts and leaves me in pieces.
I’ll never give in to you,
but you'll just see right through.

I don’t feel a thing.
I've felt the winter breeze and I've seen it;
it lies inside of me.
How will I feel a thing?
Track Name: Flow State
Take all your memories,
throw aside what you think of me.
I am reborn.
I am reborn.
Take all your misery
and all the feelings you held from me.
Let it fade to memory.
I am reborn.

Take your misery,
accept the new found peace and purity.
Open your mind, open your heart,
and feel the flow.

I can feel the pulse of the world,
flowing and healing, hidden in plain sight.
Finally, I’m In tune with my presence of self.

Finally aware, finally free.
I see all that's inside of me.
(Finally free).
I am reborn to a new state of mind,
able to unlock the secrets inside.

Hear all the voices
inside your head
they're listening.

Take all your memories,
throw aside what you think of me.
I am reborn.
I am reborn.
Take all your misery
and all the moments you stole from me,
let it fade into memory.
I am reborn.

Take your misery,
accept the new found peace and purity.
Open your mind, open your heart,
and feel the flow.

A perfect unity of body and mind.
Created by the truth
and acceptance
of the power that lies within.
I never wanted to let you in
to see whats inside.
I am reborn and I'll be alright.

Take all your memories,
throw aside what you think of me.
I am reborn.
Open your minds, open your hearts,
and feel the flow.
Forget your misery
and all the pain will cease to be.
Let it fade into memory.
We are reborn.
Track Name: Envisioned
The glow surrounds you;
you can see it if you close your eyes.
The truth is coming into focus.
This wont end in compromise.

This feeling lasts forever,
until sweet release that is pure.
You can’t come clean.
It's too late - the bridges burn around you.

The sun has set
on all our precious plans, because it's too late and this lie
is now our duty.
Protect this fragile glass from shattering it's cracked.

I've seen your stare.
I know where you’ve been
and I’m wondering if you'll hold up your end of the bargain.
Envisioned shattered into pieces.
The shadows hold the truth.
This lie, it's empty.

I know my future
has seen better days.
This hollow meaning,
thoughts left in disarray.

The glow surrounds you;
you can see it if you close your eyes.
The time is coming
to put an end to this crooked lie.

This feeling lasts forever.
With sweet release came tragedy.
You can’t come clean.
I'll ensure the bridges burn
around you.

I've seen your stare.
You know what I’ve seen,
and I’m wondering when you’re going to notice the empty feeling.
Envisioned shattered into pieces.
The shadows have come to light.
There is no time.

My hope was wasted.

Glass fixture
can’t be mended once it breaks.
Fragile structure
holds together with integrity.

My future
has seen better days.
This absent breathing.
Will this count as your victory?

Victory
holds together
with integrity.
Track Name: Control
Standing at
the edge of an endless pit.
I wonder what would go through my mind.
During the fall,
would I cry for help?
Or would I
(would I)
be calm.

I took my will for granted,
now it is withered and gone.
Holding onto memories
of a life abandoned,
of a time once lost,
and a hope forgotten.

Inevitably we transcend this endless plane of lives once past.
Bending to the pressure of knowing that I can't make this life last.

Won't you see
that this is not a dream?
And I'm left thinking of memories
that leave me wondering...

How can I see the light?
(It's not shining bright).
It won't be long
before the flame is gone.
Will I ever know the reason why?
It's not a truth anyone can find.

I took
my will for granted
and I'm not losing control again.

Standing at
the edge of an endless pit.
I wonder what would go through my mind,
then leave me wondering...

How can I see the light?
(It's not shining bright).
It won't be long
before the flame is gone.
Will I ever know the reason why?
It's not a truth anyone can find.

Say what you want
and this will be forgotten.
It's just a state of mind
with no exit in sight.

With me, this mindset is my prison.
Left to rot, this was my decision.
With me, this mindset is my prison.
Left (left) to rot.
