Track Name: Visitation
"We continue down the path of solemn resolve
Determined to prove our own insanity
Instead of facing reality
An ominous fog descended
And our way was lost to the haze of nightmares
Fictitious and natural
Dancing like tribal madmen
Through the undergrowth of my mind
Ethereal drums speak transient rhythms
The end is near
The end is near"

Out of a flash
I saw you beckon me in
A window into your plight

The greatest sorrow
There's no help to offer
These symbols transcend
Comprehension

This ghostly friendship
A recurring memory
I've misunderstood you
Completely

The greatest sorrow
There's no help to offer
These symbols transcend
Comprehension

A lonely call leads us down the lane
Her figure roaming out of range
You draw the lens
Take careful aim

Pull the shutter
A flash of light reveals nothing
Eyes open wide
All the while we see nothing
Change approach
A captive entity
Truth exposed
A negative reality

You've seen this before
The trees give way to the moor
The spirits bound to the land
An ancient plan
To fuel this evil evermore

Oh, you never saw it
Blind, they told you nothing but lies
Oh, you always felt the pain
Now you'll never find solace again
Who will take the blame for this ending?

Lunar rays light the way
These darkened clouds dissipating
As the scene fades away
Moonlit figures led astray
Track Name: Premonition
With bombs and ammunition
Silence those with better visions
Replace them with our own
Under crowns and thrones of declaration
Kings and gods destroying our nations
Replace them with their own

Profit reigns, but our throats run dry
We feed the wolves, but ignore the voice inside
We hold a gun to our own head, yet we still point the blame
Never asking why

We march into the darkness of the future
With our heads held high
Refusing to see these visions in our minds eye
Because they say it's alright

The country's warfare
Is always justified
The lying, the sinning
Paints another scene
The starving, the dying
Never get to see the light
The greedy, the scheming
Will always be alright

Profit reigns, but our throats run dry
We feed the wolves, but ignore the voice inside
We hold a gun to our own head, yet we still point the blame
Never asking why

Who made you king to rule our lives?
Aren't we all free?
To live to die
To understand our visions
And build a better world
Or are we blind?
We are all blind

Profits reigned, but our throats stayed dry
We fed the wolves, and we killed the voice inside
We held a gun to our own head, always pointing the blame
Never asking why
Blind with pride, we ignored the signs
We cast the stones, but never looked inside
And in the end we were consumed by our very own game
If only we'd stopped to ask why

Lucid visions show the truth
Track Name: Isolation
Illusions dance in the fading light
Of a listless, winding regression
Distractions from their course of action
Never changing, never fading
Forever demanding compliance

Captivated by the daunting gaze
Of the static waves
It manifests my fears, whispers in my ear
Telling me everything is okay

A windowless refuge
An omniscient light
Is the true bane
Of this delicate plight
Self preservation
False condemnation
All put to fame
By this incandescent light
Sleep, sleep

Captivated by the daunting gaze
Of the static waves
It manifests my fears, whispers in my ear
Telling me everything is okay
Blinded by the veil, this dark shroud of breath
It crawls down my neck
I'm trying to break away, but I can't escape
While I'm fueling my atrophy

We are merely receivers
Slaves to our perception
Bound to those who control
Deceptive transmissions

Can't look away
Entranced by the waves

As I'm here fading away
Isolation lingers
Attempting to conceal me
As my sight begins to fade
My soul is buried
And sanity slowly drifts away
Convincing me it's the only way
Deprivation aids us
In turning empathy to hate
Track Name: Revelation
"Neither awake nor dreaming
Cognizant nor unwitting
Desperately clinging
To a world in need of healing
Waiting for change
Yet initiative is fleeting
Running from that
Which gives our life meaning"

Disconnected
Broke and defective
Are we too far gone?
We're all looking in
We care just to fit in
Only to turn our cheeks

Can you feel the coma taking hold again?
Are you tossing, turning
Yearning just to break the ties?

We walk this road with ourselves in mind
But once we reach the end we too will be thrown aside
So cast the veil and drink the wine
Stray the path less defined
Or stay in line

You're asleep...
Wake up
Wake up

Can you feel the coma taking hold again?
Are you tossing, turning
Yearning just to break the ties?
Are we so out of touch
We've lost sight of the only thing
That keeps us whole
Now we must find another way to fill the void

There's a light at the end of today
Pull me out, pull me out
Yet it seems so far away
Pull me out, pull me out
We will wait idly for aid to our plea
Pull me out, pull me out
While already we hold the key
Pull me out, pull me out
Track Name: Salvation
We cling to the feather
But care not for the bird
We find comfort in our ignorance
That aids us in our decadence
Only because we're afraid

We are all searching for a savior
But only to console
Our fear of the unknown
Gripping the throats of our brothers
Too set in our ways
To see we're all to blame

This foreign entity
Brings us prosperity
And new eyes for us to see
A knowledge beyond our reach
But all too consumed with greed
And worthless commodities
We forsake our abilities
And voraciously feed until the earth depletes

In this frozen empire
We cast ourselves into the fire

We are fueling a war
Over broken translations
Repeating the cycle
That shadows the truth of creation

Taking all that we can gain
Claiming the tide for a single grain
We seal shut this open door
And leave no room for the rest of the shore
More, more, more, more...
And still we wonder why we are forsaken
Left to roam with no direction

Oh, show me the way
The road to sanctuary
Bestow upon me release
Oh, show me the way
So that we may find peace

Salvation comes not from the skies
But from the key we all hold inside
We must mend the bones
Broken by our selfish crimes
Redemption lies not in paid tithes
But between ourselves and our makers eyes
We must cast ourselves aside
Cast yourself aside
Track Name: Ascension
When all the trees are burnt to ashes
And all the seas have turned to acid
The universe will keep on turning
Our universe will keep on spinning

The land burnt red, pollution falling
All our oceans evaporating
The time in space will keep on turning
All of time and space is spinning

All that's matter never lasts
The form for us is ever changing
The time for us is temporary
The time for us is temporary
