Track Name: Metamorphose
As his final moments drew near.
All the flowers in his garden,
Were rotten.
The moon shed it’s third
And final tear.
But his path would never,
Never be forgotten.

Evolve or descend from your path.
Track Name: Holding Back
Prepare yourself, to be boarded
Strip yourself, inhale it all.
‘Cause you know, it’s the good life
the right way.
As gradually as darkness
Turns all to gray
All these bright colors
Soon will fade away.
‘Cause you know, it’s the good life
the right way.

We shall destroy the self image. Unsteady,
Wavery, bewildered, full of desire.
Destructive, confused.
When the self concept thinks,
This is I & that is mine. He binds himself
And he forgets the great self.

We are in fact holding back.
Track Name: The Conduits Lead
Picture yourself,
Our minds in a circle
The conduits lead
from societies mouth.
With this we become
an entity. A color pallette,
wich once consisted of
beautiful bright colors,
will have turned to gray.
In these cold days, our primitive ways
bring us to our knees.
(right) towards the end.
(wrong) we shall pretend
Track Name: Red Silence

in a thick black dream,
caught in a sea,
a shapeless substance,
realizing its existence

with no limbs to move with
and no mouth scream with
with nothing but a red melody
to set me free
(I am just a shapeless substance
realizing its existence)

with graceful movements
in a synchronized dance
the waves of the sea
are swallowing me
(a shapeless substance
fighting for its existence)

I transcend the dance
Of the thick substance
The transition is hard
And violent
It is the end of eternity
And the beginning of ‘me’
it begins with a
a red silence
I am a shapeless substance
realizing its existence

Is this me?
My eyes are open now I see
Is this me?
I’ve got a voice still I can’t scream

Is this really me?
Under a tree

look up and see
skeletal trees
I try to scream... (lost, in a thick black dream)

A motion less dance
Slipping into trance
It wants me to let go
So graceful and slow
Waves without sound
Pull me down
I need you...

dream of a ‘you’ and ‘me’,
different beings, soft and free (so soft and free)
dream of a ‘you’ and ‘me’
speak our minds, and what we feel (and what we feel)

...I look around me
and see others just like me
the waves of the sea
trying to become free

...its movements are graceful
we should be thankful

Red silence, I try to scream
Red silence, lost in a thick black dream

in a thick black dream,
caught in a sea,
a shapeless substance,
realizing its existence

it begins with…

…a red silence
Track Name: As the Skies Break
Define us now
We creep inside
Are we ever coming out.
Our withered minds we must explain.
Torn apart and rearranged
We fall silent.

As the inner eye escapes our head
Life’s unsatisfying path gives a taste of the future.

Damp they dwell deep inside
Expressing all we aim to hide
They watch, as the skies break
His hope consists of what might be
Track Name: Prosthetic Sea
In this prosthetic sea
It’s hard to find

The brightest colors that
Feed your mind.

To use our head
We must go out of our mind

Grab your thoughts, make them real
Ride the wave, the way you feel

The eye that leads the way.
Track Name: The Eye that Leads the Way
The eye that leads the way
Would you be where I am
Track Name: Inspiration
She gives , inspiration
Her fluid, intoxication
Religious, dedication
I need her, persuasion
Looking, from a distance
Her presence, feeds my existence
Her eyes, that I still can’t see
Will eventually, find the best in me

This is, hard core relaxation,
I’ve found a way to be, now I can’t live with out her poison

That’s realization,

She is life, to me
She will poison me

She’ll be my first and last temptation
First and last temptation
My religion


Track Name: Fixation, at Rest
A red portrayed , desserted world.
With fingers crossed, it bites it’s tounge.

Leaves withered with time to kill.
Giving birth to the hand
That seeks the thrill

Bound together, they grow appart

The chessboard crossroads
Offer different ways
To a desired destination
