Stasis 05:31
You can make it true, go on and see it through One great wonder leading to another kind of mystery A sense of urgency to create something new This passion within drives the desire for the answer There's no limit to the power of the mind Concentration restrained, foreshadowed this day would come Sacred were the ways bestowed upon us This desecration will remain Infused it will never change Every thought, every vision will be controlled Unknown to all Lamb before the wolves The clerics prophesied You're working endlessly to bring forth a dream that isn't even your own Deconstruction of a false reality unfolds Sacred were the ways bestowed upon us, this desecration will remain in stasis Lamb before the wolves The clerics prophesied You’re working endlessly to bring forth a dream Chaos will follow once the spell has lifted These twisted ways will be just a memory Powerless against the shadow's grip Chaos will follow once the spell has lifted
Centauri 04:23
Always in search of information, the deprivation eating all that's left inside The final hour approaches, the unknown arrival Just one chance to live, now These symptoms arising, twisting the mind Oceans will collide when the meltdown strikes So, stop bitching for help and start trying to save yourself The cerebral deviation will bring each one to their knees The end solution will only be futile Brave, hope, holding on One step from oblivion Brave, hope, holding on Just one step away… Abandoned, left here to rot and die Infected and awaiting the breach inside this fluid-filled shell Fearing isolation, that endless thought there is no going back Inhale, with this last final breath One by one, their light will fade Fright grips the life left in you, afraid to die alone On some planet so far away One will stay behind, a failed attempt to stop the pressure from rising All is lost… Hide from the blast Keep running, don't look back Go, and save yourself
Hyperacuity 03:59
“Obviously, the time continuum has been disrupted creating this new temporal event sequence, resulting in this alternate reality.” Injection streaming a residual reality Only his eyes see this infection bring forth destruction Visual fantasy from hyperacuity Down the drain, these lies shall pour In a sheet of searing flame, the portal expands Evil travels through the obscure gateway from a parallel universe This threshold expands beyond imagination Acute senses align the frequency and expose an image Mistaken as a sickness, overlooking the possibility of an alternate reality Down the drain, washed away his reflection An echo repeating over and over Leaping into the next time line Leaping into fathomless divide The universal wave function keeps ripping through, over and over Slowly gaining ground
Dissolve 03:41
A century of dreaming about a future that is lost Days turn to years, these words falling on deaf ears Shaping the world to come Constantly moving forward, the cutting edge of technology Survival is the only option Why? Has this all been for nothing? No way of knowing until we try Dazed and broken, a silence falls upon Feeling helpless, but still will carry on Now the final page has turned, yet still no lesson has been learned From vision to design, the race for information Civilization will fall, these final words spoken before the journey to the traveler Forever unknown Are these our last hours? No time to waste! “Go ahead Sir Knight, slay me! You won in fair combat, strike! Let rivers of blood wash away the stain of my disgrace. Go on! Spewer the field with my dishonored guts.” Dissolve
Astral Plane 03:32
Awaken to a new beginning the tide has turned now The voyage contained a message - the ambiguities of life A new breed is born, genome enhancement for a better world This plane is that of will and life spirit The illusion of good and evil will manifest through the fourth dimension Time travel, karma, magic Psychic surgery, reincarnation Grey, polarized, housing the forces of light and darkness Forms naturally morph through the astral plane Like an etheric flow of energy, it is not confined to the brain By contacting the higher strata of the mind We shall gain inconceivable knowledge With no hesitations, in this magical state you can become the enchanter And re-create a new conquest to master Omnipotent victory over matter, like an etheric flow of energy It is not confined to the brain Transcended into this existence Earth vibrations will snap the threads of recollection Grey, polarized, housing the forces of light and darkness Forms naturally morph through the astral plane
Transience 05:28
From science fiction to reality A post-apocalyptic remnant left behind in the sand Desolation from the creation leaving just a barren wasteland Evidence of life is before us, no need for a chorus to make you understand The truth of what can happen Under the surface they hide, waiting for their time to rise Concealed before your eyes - the power of deception From the heavens they descended, our way of life now infiltrated Without a clue for what's intended, society will be degraded These unknown artifacts lay in ruins scattered across the planet Landscape eradication leads us to build underground cities to survive our destruction Leaving illusion to the perception of your mind Out of sight they observe us from the anomaly that orbits the sun “How do we kill them?” “However you can.” “Let's find a way off this fucking planet.” “That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” What you don't know doesn't hurt you now But how will you be ready for when they attack? Beneath the surface lies a key Through the looking glass we found the answer, but kept it a secret from the public For the fear that it may shatter the foundations of humanity No! A greater power is amongst us from the skies We're just insects, discarded rejects Specimens for their microscope slides Down from the skies they came to enslave us To do their work for eternity “Earth. Man. Woman. Sense. Science. Fluid. Flight. Mars. Manus. Verse.”
