Track Name: Beginnings: Put To Sleep
I watched through closed eyes as the world I knew began to fall apart.
The lines blurred together and the ground gave way.

I fell to my knees as it consumed me.
I could not speak a word.

It was as if I had fallen asleep watching myself die.
With my life before me, I couldn't turn away.

Oh what a sight to behold, the passing.
I felt my lungs collapse under the weight of the waves crashing on me.
I will forever dream beneath this sea, put to sleep.
Track Name: Elegance: The Wavering Light
With such profound elegance, she danced between the rays of light.
Fluid movements captured the nuance of every moment.

I stood in awe of her beauty.
Her eyes reflected the wavering light.
The words seemed to slip between the grasp of my tongue

(and) Yet with each turn and twist she made, the room grew cold.

Such profound cold danced within my grey eyes.
Fleeting motions lost, one last chilling moment.

(and) Yet with each turn and twist she made, the room grew cold.
(and) In that last shivering moment I never felt more alone.

Fall before the emptiness reflected by my eyes,
(and) Stand in awe of my death.

(and) Yet with each turn and twist she made, the room grew cold.
(and) In that last shivering moment I never felt more alone.

Fluid movements captured the nuance of every moment.
Track Name: Beauty: To Become The Sunset
I watched as the clouds passed from before the sun.
The hillsides lit up as if set ablaze.
Are we just moving for the sake of motion?
Have we forgotten?

May I never forget that day…

I’ll dream forever of that moment.
The blades of grass exploded with such brilliance.
That scene burned into my retina.
May it be the last I ever see.
I’d like to remember the beauty of this earth,
And forget the pain we have tarnished it with.

And yet as each day ends, with it brings a different sunset.
Same sun, but the picture is never the same.
Let us capture the beauty in this variance.
Ever changing skyline, always a perfect picture

I have become that perfect sunset.
May I be the last you ever see…

And yet as each day ends, with it brings a different sunset.
Same sun, but the picture is never the same.

Are we just moving for the sake of motion?
Have we forgotten?

May I never forget that day…

I’ll dream forever
Track Name: Time: The Inner Workings of Autumn's Murder
Time, always will be the end of us all
This year is coming to a close (and)
Truth be told, I never thought we’d make it this far
Today, no one knows my name, but come
Tomorrow and I will never be forgotten

I, the creator of all
I am the architect
I’ve taken her life once again
If only to prevent the coming equinox
I will destroy
I'll use my hands
I'll bring what I've created to an end

My blood runs cold
Making my dreams come true
Making your life a fucking nightmare
Malevolent thoughts turn to a racing heartbeat
Murder, blood on the sands of time
My hands manipulated by the coldest of winters
Making only for an even colder grave

Every night I can hear the whispers
Each voice a melody, in this cacophonous chorus of the dead
Eating their way into my dreams
Enter into the veil of my sanity
End of days
End of Time
Track Name: Amnesia: Anatomy of a Breakdown
It seems I have forgotten my own name.
I am a number on lists, a percentage on a chart
What was it that I came here for?
You don't know either...

Strange... my life had meaning only minutes ago.
But, my memory betrays me.

I'm losing my mind. Forgetting how it works.
But no one understands.
Comprehension is not a state of mind,
It is a state of being.

Can you remember the days when we knew who we were?
Tell me why we're here.
What purpose does your existence serve?

It seems I have forgotten (my own name.)
What was it that I came here for? (You don't know either.)
I'm losing my mind (keep it alive.)
Forgetting how it works.

A single number is insignificant by itself (on its own).
Comprehension is the difference between one and one thousand.
Follow your own path, and you'll find your way back to stability.

Ward off the wonder with humility.

As your life disintegrates before your eyes,
Remember how you got to where you're standing.
The black holes in your eyes were not earned from sleep.

You can't simply die without weeks of dehydration.

(But) "Simple" is a word unheard of to you.
You are not alone. Not a crow in a flock of doves.

Can you remember the days when we knew who we were?
Tell me why we're here.
What purpose does your existence serve?

It seems I have forgotten (my own name.)
What was it that I came here for? (You don't know either.)
I'm losing my mind (keep it alive.)
But no one understands.

All of the birds are dying.
Wings clipped beaks chipped, flightless and distressed.
Track Name: Lifeless: Left in the Wake
(I became) Lost in the silence of these empty hearts.
My mind grew weary with the thought,
of truly knowing what my voice would sound like.

Trapped between my tongue and my teeth, I remain frozen.
A silent symphony beckons from behind these walls.
I beg for a sound to escape my lips, I am left to wait.

I never thought I could remain for more than a moment.
Every second is a struggle to keep my mind from falling apart.

Left in the wake of these days, I’ll never be found
(At least) Not by the ones who abandoned me without my eyes.

Taken away, I will never return here. This place is evil, with every night it grows.
Beg me not to leave; you’re taking away my eyes.
My lungs betray what was never to be seen.

I never thought I could remain for more than a moment.
Every second is a struggle to keep my mind from...
Your heart can’t forget what your mind has dreamed.

WE ARE THE BROKEN; our eyes are lost and stolen.
WE ARE THE FROZEN; our eyes are lost and stolen.
WE ARE FORGOTTEN.
Track Name: Parasomnia: Bow Before The Coma
True life, true living
Is embodied in the shadows we pass
Without so much as a second glance

For what is my life worth,
No more than what little living I have done

So I will become the dreamer,
The speaker of truths, my truth
So I will become the dreamer
So I will become the dreamer

I will bow before the coma
The never-ending sleep
Kneel before the dreamers,
The architects behind this collapse

We shall lie hand in hand
As our dreams intertwine
We shall lie hand in hand
As our dreams intertwine

Forever I will dream
And so will you sleep within my dream
Forever I will dream
And so will you sleep within my dream

Fingers interweaved, we will become the coma
We will become the truth, neither yours nor mine
Fingers interweaved, we will sleep and dream our truth

I will bow before the coma
The never-ending sleep
Kneel before the dreamers,
The architects behind this collapse

Our dreams are our truth
Track Name: Revelation: Perceived Existence
The memory escapes me of when I first realized I had become lost.
Maybe that moment never really did reveal itself to me.
I have yet to see how far I have truly wandered from the road before me.
The path was never really clear; I never believed it was even there.
My footsteps became increasingly clearer as I strayed…
As I turned and walked away.

My path is the one I choose.
Unclear ahead, uncertain behind.
I will only know my destination when I get there.

At a loss for words, my breath took refuge within melody.
A poem without words, restless voices found resolve; save for the broken minds.
They may find peace within the haunting brilliance of a single distant note.

So shrill, the dissonance of my thoughts became deafening…
In the confines of my own reality.
(so) I closed my eyes and listened.

Breathless, I faltered as my mind revealed the true nature of this place. Enslaved by the dogmatic beliefs of existence,
(and) Unable to see beyond the scope of their own perception.

This planet is lost.

Amongst the music of the spheres I cried, “Oh Eidolon, reveal yourself to me!”
