Track Name: Subject To Change
In an age of ignorance owned by machines and their greed
Turn the page of apathy, become what you're born to be
And our mortal gods are men in suits in this dead industry
Following their trivial pursuits in this monopoly

Look you will find, this truth isn't mine
We've run out of time, the world undivined

Life finds a way, but what are we if not born to decay?
It's our culture to be statistics and figures in grey

Another loss of time, this world's unsublimed
Creation in finance, give us another chance
An aspect deranged, the constant of change
Their thoughts out of range, no prophets nor sage

Look you will find, this truth isn't mine
A spacial divide split these moments in time

Life finds a way, but what are we if not born to decay?
It's our culture to be statistics and figures in grey
This esoteric war within man in a verse of exchange
It's per-mutating, and who's to believe we're not Subject to Change?

Solo: Vollbrecht

Please believe what I'm saying. My memories fading.

Soon you will find, this isn't mine, we're out of time
Someday you will find, this isn't mine, we're out of time

In an age of ignorance owned by machines and their greed
Turn the page of apathy, become what you're born to be
And our mortal gods are men in suits in this dead industry
Following their trivial pursuits in this monopoly

Life finds a way, but what are we if not born to decay?
It's our culture to be statistics and figures in grey
This esoteric war within man in a verse of exchange
We're per-mutating, and who's to believe we're not Subject to Change?

Our era's revised, no societal ties, my mind is now clear, proclaimed by the seer
Who's to believe what they did to us here?
Track Name: Amygdala
Solo: Vollbrecht

I can see so far, the lights they’ve all gone.
An astral dawn, life is your fawn.
Astral dawn, life has become your fawn
Seasons repeating, while my time is fading
Passing like the clouds, it’s passing me now.

We’ve seen the light in fight or flight:

You’ll see intelligence in arrogance
I’ve found it all in our discontent
I’ve seen that there’s an interrupt
History says that we will corrupt.

Never accept that we are enough. We’re destined to fall from our own bluffs
To share in ignorance, is being entranced.
We will lose the light. Why is our instinct to fight?
It’s our risk to take, we were our own mistake.

We won’t take that road again, in this hurricane...

(Voices 1+2)
Lock eyes with the blind.
Secrets lost in time
Cycles in disguise
Soon we’ll see the price.
Lost in circles around the drain
Emotions born within our brain
We rely on a hive mind
Emotions drive, like shackles bind.

Solo: Vollbrecht

Voice 2:
We are our history, binded to our heresy
He told me to take us all to heaven, the sacred killer of the seven
Lacerate, Disengage, Welcome to our decay.
We came to leave home

We are our history, binded to eternity
We thrive in our pain, lost everything
That we gained.

Solo: Vollbrecht

I’ve been down below, sailed the seven seas,
begged down on my knees, It’s all part of the show.
Yes I can tell you where to go. Oh, but the people I know
Betray you with a kiss. But I can tell you ain’t down with this.
From dust to ash it’s all the same.
Caught in our repetitious-repetitious-repetitious game.
Now raise the stakes and place your bets
The Clocks will tick, they will reset.

Voice 1:
Lock eyes with the blind?These secrets lost are mine.
Cycles in disguise, soon we’ll all see the price.

Seasons give reason, repeats of the sun
Bound by cycles, forced to repeat.
All these circles bound for defeat

What’s left to take?

It’s our concern, repeat what we’ve learned
My mind enthralled, but doomed to fall

Solo: Sloppy

I’ve never seen god, but I’ve certainly seen the Devil.
In this world of absence that we say we rule
All lost in demand, we fell at our own hands.
I’ve never seen god, but I’ve certainly seen the Devil
All these lost secrets
Reach out and take it.

The Devil is Man...
Track Name: Astrophe
... and these old eyes will dance
the truth will remain
When our nature's been reborn
We all hide in our own shame

This sudden urge-the tip of the syringe
I can feel the balance tilt, on a rusting hinge
The sudden urge-we've never been free
What had been and what's to be

We fell asleep
We're in too deep

This uneasy operacy
Lost in translation, it babbles me
And I was awake that day
The path we were always meant to take

I hope
I hope you'll see (in me)
The cycle that we've never been free
(And) what has been and what's to be

Our history
is rewritten
illegibly

Solo: Vollbrecht

Find your clarity in disaster
Feels like time moves faster

We fell today
Lost between birth and decay

To share your blood
A life dragged through the endless mud

I feel awake
What's left to take?
Track Name: Coruscate
Rise above all these lies that you’ve so grown to love
Synopsis of a hell below and your skies above
Enlightened me, planes collide in a staggering syzygy
Soon we’ll all see that the deeper thoughts are what will set us free

Skies resembling reason
Symbiotic to treason

Won’t you see my way?
We found the truth and threw it away
Wait for the day
When Saulė, Goddess of Life, Birth and Decay
“It’s okay today,” The message, the game, that we won’t play.

Can’t stop now. Lost our minds but survived somehow.
Break the crown. Hypocrites lead but they will never Bow.
Light of Dawn. What cloud level do you think you’re on?
Wait for response... Just how far have we all gone?

In subliminal lesions
In a psychotic region

Won’t you see my way?
We found the truth and threw it away
Wait for the day
When Saulė, Goddess of Life, Birth and Decay
“It’s okay today,” The message, the game, that we won’t play.

Can’t stop now. Lost our minds but survived somehow.
Won’t stop now. Lost our minds but survived somehow.

Solo: Vollbrecht

No we’ll survive
This is it we won’t quit
We’ll show you how, we won’t Bow.

Won’t you see my way?
We found the truth and threw it away
Wait for the day
When Saulė, Goddess of Life, Birth and Decay
“It’s okay today,” The message, the game, that we won’t play.

Our Coruscate
Bring the light before it’s too late
Eradicate
The Darkness
A thousand years left to date.
Track Name: Abstract Thoughts
These voices in my head keep talking down to me
All these choices, all in vain
What we’ve claimed but we’re to blame.

It restrains us, inebriated trust
Sovereigns in the rust, all that’s left is dust
Sacred Killer, Ionic Pillar, keep talking down to me

And I want to forget, and I’ll never regret.
We know we’ll see this one through,
And we’ll always be missing you.

Voice 2:
Fuck this bullshit, incoherent, belligerent. We will reset
Lost in simplicity, our mediocrity Birth and Decay
They won’t listen to me,

These voices above my head guide my choices
How can this be said?
Listen to me. We are not free. We are our history
Fading into memory.

Voice 1:
And I want to forget, and I’ll never regret
You know we’ll see this one through
And I’ll always be missing you

Solo: Vollbrecht

And I want to regret, and I'll never forget
I know we'll see this one through
And I'll always be missing you

I want to regret, and I never forget
You know we'll see this one through
And I'll always...

Track Name: Šamaš
Glacial sheets once a thousand miles thick
Humanity’s self absorption makes their gods feel sick
Infernos burning in infinite wastelands
Turning kingdoms of ice to seas of sand

We’ve seen the errors in our ways
The god that Birthed us is our Decay
I’ve seen the maps of our dueling fates
Conceived in sorrow, consumed by our own hate

A fire lost in this realm of frost
Ending life at every cost
Take a look at our crumbling past
And take your seat. Look through the glass.

Desolation lost in indignation caught in separation
Forced Immolation
Igniting our temples and melting the steeples
Erasing the secrets, our history’s regrets.

Voice 2:
“He told me to take us all to heaven”
Sacred Killer of the Seven
Orbs of light, your spinning fate
Endless nights of incinerate.

Voice 1:
My comprehension: deformed destruction
Our isolation, a new creation
And this disaster keeps moving faster
At gates of Peridot, I speak in the tongues of fire.

You’re not god no you’re no god.
(I’ve seen this before, no more lies)
I’ve seen this before in previous lives
(Killer be killed, eternal knife)

Solo: Vollbrecht

Cycles repeat before my very eyes.
Death from above now in vacant skies.
I see the face of the sun as it Decays.
But I already know what he’s got to say...:

Voice 2:
“You foolish man it’s only just begun”
Ten thousand years
You will all forget
Life is a castle made of the sands.
The clocks will tick they will all
Reset.

Voice 1:
Again we will grow and again we shall fall.
Again we will freeze,
And again we shall burn.
Repeat the story, The cycles, they call.
For dust we are,
And dust we shall return.
For dust we are, and to the dust we shall return.
