Track Name: Calculated Obsession
Drawn to desire
The control of a cultivated hive
Cease to control the extravagant ways of their own creation
Intractable fascination

Idiosyncratic existence has allured me
A computation of love and greed
It’s in our nature to want things from the other side
Leave me to my own devices

Its obsession with the steps I take
Planted seeds, growing need to forsake
Deep down it is known there’s no escape
I still deny

Do not take me from the things I seek
Though you can try, if you feel the need
I’ve trapped you here
There’s nothing left to say

My walk with the beast is creating all of my enemies
Out lashing at a voice with the absence of form
Jealous machine, has pushed me into gear
Driven to the threshold by the color green
The rage diluting the mind and masking the state of unreason

Free me from this realm, free me, free me from this realm

My walk with the beast has created all of my enemies
Out lasting at a voice with the absence of form
Compelling demands pushed me into gear
Driven to the threshold by a vain machine
Seduction controlling the mind approaching the brink of extinction

Strangely we are never satisfied
We are always yearning for more, greed empowering ambition
Our appetite equals existence
Happiness for too long we are afraid we have died
Free me

Take me to the side of acceptance
Inquisitive minds, boundless perception
Track Name: Smoke and Mirrors
Simple to fall from its embellished grace
Seemingly sincere matriarch is luring me
Within deep sleep there’s a looming presence of death
Dreaming in chapters as the powers cast out your greatest fears

You can’t conceive deceit
Seducing dancer
Shape the moments as you dream

You can’t conceive deceit
Seducing dancer
Shape the moments as you scream

Perception leaking from the other side as I drown
Observe your surroundings there are no boundaries
The rush cuts in like a knife
The matriarch is luring me

Suddenly the mirages unfold
Your mind clears the smoke and mirrors
Clarity reveals strings of control
Forebode
Impulsive, the desires to evade
From the unknown, the demons they give chase
Nominated as the victim here
Hopeless

The, the disbelief, of the unraveling of everything believed

Convulsions induced by the phobias
The realms had crossed resulting in confusion
Realize the ending is near
A Grand finale, smoke clears for the collapse
Track Name: Elude the Sun
Calefaction is the direct reaction to our carelessness
Fiery - Heated

Endangered by the rays, devastated by the sun

Still sodden air, fever breaks through
We’re handed a death sentence
Irrational state, declining in faith
Rise dominant star, rise again
Pitiful souls panicked and broken (scorching)

The sun we won’t elude from
Our time is borrowed, fall on knees to cast shadows
Dehydrated hallucinations, segregation of the nations
I feel this reality, in disbelief
We hang our heads and grieve

No authority no order, falling victim to physical torpor
The air too thick to breathe, burning sensations through our being

The sun we won’t elude from
Our time is borrowed
Fall on knees to cast shadows

How we have yearned for the soft silver light
Casting diamond blankets across the sky
Blistering, the painted sphere
A curse in our nightmare
In our nightmare

Copious song, bleeding over the masses
From the confident star
A morbid display so relentless
Despise the sun

Leaving our solace behind
Atmosphere declination
Awaken to a frozen atrocity
Acrid polar tragedy

The Sun we won’t elude from
Track Name: Transcending One
Algid winds breathe onto me
Faint cries, dampen the air
Spectral sound within the void
The darkness is breeding the bleakest illusions

Disbelief, it strangles, it taunts me, disbelief

Walls control, the lines of our perception
Feel the loss of an absent love
The panic induced by those of the flesh

Fog consumes me
Feel the strain of vertigo
Lead with a voice
The space it, alters my senses

Rising, this light as bright as the sun
I'll breathe it in, surrender me to the transcending one

Take me through this place for I am not
Well guided, come take me in and free me from this burden

In my arms, here together, at last
You're in my arms again
Is it all a lie?
Are we still alive?
Track Name: Ropes of Time
Seconds escape to the end of his journey
Short dance several feet off the ground
Shuffling towards the burn of a rope
Admission of guilt sparking rage from the crowd

Transported to the borderline
Between the known and imagined
Extracted by the ropes of time
The future has been casted

Welcomed into a spectrum
Polar opposite from the past
Gazed his eyes on broadest illusions
A protest in his belief
Forced into accepting the theory
A new world to scrutinize
The veil is lifted, a kiss of light to his eyes

Enraged by advancements
Senses far from adapted
Overwhelmed by foreign sensations
The theory of it all proves to be too vast

Lost in dual realities, no measurement of time

Regardless of the evolution
Some things never change
In Justice seek validation
Abide by human law
The essence of
Realized moral belief

If consequences are to be avoided
Common sense is to be applied
Some things will never change

The rope inherits a strange innocence
Lost in dual reality, no measurement of time
Track Name: Lights in Elevation
Control and manipulate the selected dead in a dream
The interaction is near emerging to strange dimensions unreal
In the skies
Lights in elevation are clear
Go Insane
The truth will never be a fact to them
Let Go Now

Paralyzed Conscious
As I become, a mere Pawn in the scheme of a monitor trance

Gather Around
Bare down of the prey with machines made of shadows
Lucid Dreams
Breathing walls to conceal a reality
That escapes us all

Control and Manipulate
The observant pressing their needs
A rigid veil creasing over by those
Suppressed by superior entities

Beyond the lines
A sound of thundering force leads the trail
Will I survive?
If I return, things will never be the same
My words lead on a delusional tale
One of many who’ve become the afflicted
Systematic assault
Where do I go from a place like this?
Maybe just move on
And await, the Calling

Lights in elevation are clear
Track Name: Beauty in Mystery
Longing for a time of sanity
I’d give my life, for a single yesterday
Never will I be satisfied with these troubled years
Romance of a falling dream

Like clockwork, the sequence never changes
He dwells in a fabled time
The spell of youth, a fabrication
These eyes will see, before they are seen

I only wanted to tell you
This is your time, now and here
I come from a long way and a long time
Take in these moments and capture the essence of you

Creating this graveyard of memories
Strange wish is granted with cold intent

Sympathize with the way of life

I am your straying shadow
I am not anything more
I wander through this place and smile at a laughing ghost


Constant lingering thought, derailed

Infatuation, obstruction, I cannot breathe
No, no, no tranquility
The years have moved on, my chance is gone


These sites and sounds
They swallow me whole
I’m listening, though cannot see, the changes in front of me

We learn as time goes on
To stop and see
The beauty in mystery
Track Name: Embellished
Encapsulate this pain
A sphere of torment
I created this meek existence
A product of my own doing

The eyes reflect a hollow soul
A longing desire
To reveal my shadows
Release this hate, take the weight

Take the weight, bear this on your shoulders
Relieve me of this burden

A longing desire, I want it
Watch my spirit digress
With every indulgence
A longing desire, I want it

Pick up and walk away
My ignorance, will be, my bliss
When will it end, will I forget?

Go within and find a true calling
Return to the depths within
The darkness is a home
Sustain this undying pain

Sustain the pain, observe it, observe it
Embellish the one who dwells within

A longing desire, I want it
Watch my spirit digress, with every indulgence
A longing desire, I want it
