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?

Amygdala 20:19
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...

Astrophe 06:16
... 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?

Coruscate 04:33
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.

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...

Šamaš 15:54
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.
