Track Name: Event Horizon
Stuck between the essence of Life as the Conscious grows
Wakes in space, the fabric has lifted, he shows his face
Decider bearing no boundaries
He waits to claim again

I have drifted far from my home now
I am on approach with the Great Void
Set to be the end for the conscious
Regrets will form again

This space it is nothing but darkness and endless cries
A God eating that is eating the souls of the ones who fell behind

Forget everything I used to know
It seems my life has gone to waste
Starring into a dimension
Where light can't run away
I'm crossing over now
(i'm crossing over now)

One more time I'll see the truth from this
One more time I'll live my life in an instant
One more time I'll give in. Set this straight
One more time I'll see a different perspective

I have drifted far from my home now
I am on approach with the Great Void
Set to be the end for the conscious
Why did I live this way?

This space it is nothing but darkness and endless cries
A God eating that is eating the souls of the ones who fell behind

Forget everything I used to know
It seems my life has gone to waste
Starring into a dimension
Where light can't run away
You think there's something more out there?
I know there's more out there


Bring me home.
Track Name: Relinquish (EP Version)
Endless peaks of dunes around me
Grain by grain I tread bleary
Seeking forth the pulsing light above the skyline

Back from another life
No sense of who I was before
Faint visions of an entity beyond my consciousness

Back down, you're vulnerable
Beg for your heart to hold
This life was not one to be tamed by innocence

Forefit
To the pressure of emotional pain
They know
All the things that make us whole
Blinded
By the light they cast in the sky
Control
By their power they control us all
Control us all

We cannot be so blinded by "The Man"
His only wish is to watch the world collapse
What's this mean to you? What's this mean to you?

No sense to run, no sense to carry on your grave
No place to hide, no place to keep yourself alive
In time you'll tell, in time you'll see the world a lie
I will not stop until this man is dead

I can't believe I've suffered for
What I'm told is the perfect life
Perfect lie

We cannot be so blinded by "The Man"
His only wish is to watch the world collapse
What's this mean to you? What's this mean to you

What's this really mean to you?
Rest assured, you will remember us
Track Name: Metaphysical
I am the stray
Distant from home
I am lost in this haze
They watch me so carefully
Ghost in my eye
Haunting relentlessly
Taking my life, purging my energy

(Facing my boundaries, I've come to terms with this. My soul is hurting, product of my own flaws. Each night of terror, pleading desperately)

I am the stray
They watch me so carefully
Ghost in my eye
Haunting relentlessly

I've sat awake all night
The voices say
I am the harborer
The gift of sin
They stare at me, right through my lies
These are renditions of my own distress

Just learn from my mistakes, don't wait to change at all
They lack all empathy to save another soul
I've had enough of this
It's time to change

Break Indolence
Breathe Refinement
Don't wait too long

These vices led me to insanity
Locked in a paradox
Far from this conscious life I used to have

The silhouettes appear
Their eyes, they glow
Is this the work of God?
Or something more?
I'm indifferent
It's time to change

These walls are closing in

Don't wait too long

Just learn from my mistakes
Don't wait to change at all
They lack all empathy
To save another soul
I've had enough of this
It's time to change
Track Name: Mirage
It's an instrumental, ya dingus
Track Name: Illusions
My eyes open, and I'm starring at the ceiling
It's the same old one I've seen a thousand times before

Here I lay again, where nothing is changing
I'm tossing and turning, my heart beat is racing
I turn on the lights, breathing so heavy
I'm pacing and thinking, I'm always thinking

I won't ever overcome this depression
I just want to live forever

Live each and everyday unchanged
Be there for one another
Don't be a victim of regret
Someday you'll understand

All that we have
And all that we see
Depictions, Illusions
We take them for granted
All that we have
And all that we see
Our lives have it's limits
Let's face it, embrace it

Teach me how to feel again I wanna know
'Cause lately I've been holding on, I can't let go
Take me away from these Illusions in my head
I've wasted so much time instead
