Track Name: Jungle
Intention, clouded by lies
like thunder, darkening the skies
and setting fires

Fear twisting, and rushing through my veins
dark thickens, till nothing else remains
and setting fires

We hear, the Spirits who refuse to be still
they fill, the confines of our minds
to dilute our kind
till nothing remains

Greed glistens, in flames fed with life
hands hidden, but rolling the dice
and setting fires

We hear, the Spirits who refuse to be still
they fill, the confines of our minds
to dilute our kind

Spirits who refuse to be still
[all around us, setting fires]

We hear, the Spirits who refuse to be still
they fill, the confines of our minds
to dilute our kind
till nothing remains
Track Name: Twelve
Claw my eyes
until I'm blind
itch inside
for peace of mind
rip my skin
from within
hypnotized
hunt what hides

peel, to reveal
tear, pull what's ensnared

body, thrown aside
Thought is what remains
clawing through my eyes
scratching for the reigns

Break my air
stealing sound
conscious shared
left unfound
rip my skin
from within
without despair
nothing spared

peel, to reveal
tear, pull what's ensnared

body, thrown aside
Thought is what remains
clawing through my eyes
scratching for the reigns
Track Name: Deception's Throne
Cover over Known, Receive what’s shown
Called away with spite, Designed as Right
So that we fear the things from which we're made
Deception is misguiding

Illusions Brighten, Kindred Slighted
Substance hiding, The veil is tightening
Yet questions asked are answering

Mind Mistaken, Lips leaking lies that show
Corrupted Core of bone
As Truth stands naked, and Risks reaping rights unsown
Deception's broken Throne

Carry over Tone, Need for what’s shown
Calls from out of reach, Designed to seek
So that we shed the things from which we're made
Deception has misguided

Illusions Brighten, Instinct Slighted
Command hiding, The veil is tightening
Yet the questions asked are answering

Mind Mistaken, Lips leaking lies that show
Corrupted Core of bone
As Truth stands naked, and Risks reaping rights unsown
Deception's broken Throne

Idols Chosen
Intertwine concealed decent
Patterns Woven
Fabricate quiet consent

Illusions Brighten, Instinct Slighted
Substance hiding, The veil is tightening
Yet questions asked are answering

Mind Mistaken, Lips leaking lies that show
Corrupted Core of bone
As Truth stands naked, and Risks reaping rights unsown
Deception's broken Throne
Track Name: Underlie
foresight missed
fleeting bliss
determined tides
underlie

vast despair
inward stare
the blind lead the blind
it underlies
every
turn
pre-fashioned
whole lives
just patterns
monopolized

tempt back light
engulfs plight
feign occupied
it underlies

each turn
pre-fashioned
whole lives
just patterns
monopolized
Track Name: Detach
Passing Time, wearing Sin
Shine surrounds, but won't touch his skin
He steps from the shadow as he feeds the void
the light that he received
the world he perceived
has been destroyed

Amongst the others, he moves unseen
Pain consumed, rips at his seams
the thread that binds him to light is gone
endlessly he'll search
circling the Earth
screaming at the dawn

Follow me
I'm incomplete
Follow me

Empty space, without, within
what Shine creates, he's forsaken
the thread that binds him to light is gone
endlessly he'll search
circling the Earth
screaming at the dawn

Follow me
I'm incomplete
Follow me
Track Name: Transient
Eyes, see a light brighter
Lungs feel tighter
Steps fall lighter
drawing the line, pass through time

Taste the depth of fresh colours
distant Mother
offering under
above is behind, pass through time


Hands grip a sound brighter
holding tighter
a life left lighter
crossing the line, pass through time

Feel the touch of another
this distant Mother
she sings under
above and behind, pass through time


Go, in every direction
from the heart of inception
conquering time


Breathe the loss of familiar
perspective similar
but connections splintered
dividing the line, pass through time

Know the challenge of choosing
of paradigms moving
of gaining while losing
above or behind, pass through time

Go, in every direction
from the heart of inception
conquering time surroundings masquerading
protect the line


Eyes, see a light brighter
Track Name: Suffocate
Expectation whispered, don't speak
we stand back watching
as yesterday repeats

Frustration's screaming, and covers our eyes
we try to buy meaning
between all her lies

Insatiable want, she teases and taunts
she measures our worth
she's stitched us together, this fabric of flesh
to suffocate the Earth

Expectation, in places we keep
we stand back watching
as yesterday repeats

Insatiable want, she teases and taunts
she measures our worth
she's stitched us together, this fabric of flesh
to suffocate the Earth
