Track Name: Abstract Connections
We strive to own perfection
We’re still waiting for applause
But its only on reflection
We will see we are the cause

The cycles never ending
We’ve lost our train of thought
Societies transcending
And the picture it distorts

Welcome to a world that never holds enough for us
Where the waters gone for good and where the earth is dead and dry
Will you find your comfort in the concrete and the rust?
Welcome to our world destroyed, to the death of you and i

The bond is parasitic
For a world we think we own
Our species never understands
You reap what you have sewn

The cycles never ending
Do you think we’ve lost our minds?
There’s no use in comprehending
All the damage from our time

Welcome to a world that never holds enough for us
Where the waters gone for good and where the earth is dead and dry
Will you find your comfort in the concrete and the rust?
Welcome to our world destroyed, to the death of you and i

Now that the baron earth lies bare
And all known life is in decay
This fucking world’s in disrepair
The dawning of our judgement day

All of the signs don’t correlate
All will be lost to recreate

Why do we fail to understand?
That we’re the virus of this land.
We will consume and lay to waste
This world, our final resting place
Our species won’t know when to cease
We’ll hold this grip and won’t release

Welcome to a world that never holds enough for us
Where the waters gone for good and where the earth is dead and dry
Will you find your comfort in the concrete and the rust?
Welcome to our world destroyed, to the death of you and i

Now that the baron earth lies bare
And all known life is in decay
This fucking world’s in disrepair
The dawning of our judgement day
Track Name: Solaris
The horizons fading fast
And the skyline seems so faint
Although this earth is destined
We will break free from constraint

A lunar landscape persists
The stars will decease and fade
The human race grows fearful
Of the world that it made

Ignore the signs heading straight for despair
I know it’s a struggle but we’re almost there
Because what we’ve got is ephemeral
We don’t know how long it’s going to last
Just close your eyes, wait for the light
Hold your breath and wave goodbye

As the planet grows weaker, showing signs of disrepair
Watching this fall before me, while the sun blisters as it burns

I know I’m sick of placing my trust in the lord
Tell me what can your faith bring?
Can this wasteland be restored?
I know that this might be my last chance to see this imperfect place
An unknown force grows stronger
And in death we embrace

This is the end
Where the sun is blacked out of the sky
A world where the heavens descend
And we are left with the fear and dismay
From a solar demise
Where the planets collide and in turn you and I
Will be saying goodbye
To the world we once loved we will wait for the darkness

Ignore the signs heading straight for despair
I know it’s a struggle but we’re almost there
Because what we’ve got is ephemeral
We don’t know how long its going to last
Just close your eyes, wait for the light
Hold your breath and wave goodbye

This is the end
Where the sun is blacked out of the sky
A world where the heavens descend
The apocalypse turns into chaos as we fall

Im out of time and so are you
These times won’t turn
Won’t you please break through?
Because what we’ve got is incredible
And we have to make it last
Close your eyes, change these times
We watch the world meet its demise
Track Name: Mystic Revelations
I’m losing focus
So many pictures in my head
An overwhelming lust
For memories that should stay dead
What do these visions and spectacles mean
The views of the future the problems foreseen
Reach to the inside to ask myself why
Tell me what’s real and what are the lies?

In my mind
I see mystic revelations
Won’t you show me the truth?
Won’t you show me the end?

My head is vacant
My sanity is fading fast
A harsh reminder that
I know where my own fates at
I awake from my nightmares, the truth now revealed
In sweat from destruction that my minds concealed
I look to the sky where the planets assemble
They show me the reason I sit here and tremble

In my mind
I see mystic revelations
Won’t you show me the truth?
Won’t you show me the end?

Decide the way we are
Although the age of man will fall
Will you remain to carry on?
Remind those fallen few
Our species wasn’t meant to last
I’ll never dwell upon the past

As darkness comes
Into my dreams I fall
Tear down these broken walls within
Show me the meanings origin
Won’t you listen to the dreams?
In the echoes of my screams

My time is fading
These pictures show of my demise
The worlds collide and end
All that of which we do despise
The shouts and the screams as the earth starts to crack
Our lifeline as past as the skyline turns black
I look to the heavens and ask myself why
With a future of promise where we left to die?

Decide the way we are
Although the age of man will fall
Will you remain to carry on?
Remind those fallen few
Our species wasn’t meant to last
Our species wasn’t meant to last
Track Name: Requiem
So, here it is
Blown wide open plain for all of you to see

The time has come, I’m sick of
Running circles
Tired of playing games
I strike the match
The fire burns
Only hatred, echoes through your veins
Your demise
Is the dream that chases me
Our reprise
We decide who holds the key

Look where we are and what we’ve done
You think you’re right you’re fucking wrong
You’re words, the message that you send
They made us stronger in the end

Reject the lies
I’ll reach the skies
Not held down here
For when I rise
I’ll reach those highs
I’ll end up right where I belong

This time, I deserve my own ascension
This time, I deserve to be the one
These words sound of hate and retribution
This time, it is mine, my requiem

Now, we are still here, we still remain
Through all the searching, through the pain
And though the actions you contrive
We are alive, and still we thrive

And here we are
You’re burning down
I’ll walk through the ashes, to see
You will believe
I’ll rise like a phoenix
And leave you for dust
From the flames

This time, I deserve my own ascension
This time, I deserve to be the one
These words sound of hate and retribution
This time, it is mine, my requiem

Reject the lies
I’ll reach the skies
Not held down here
For when I rise
I’ll reach those highs
I’ll end up right where I belong

This time, I deserve my own ascension
This time, I deserve to be the one
I deserve to be the one
