Track Name: Of Creation
I opened my eyes today
To the power of creation
Will I see the same again?
Will I see tomorrow?

Pointless is as point remains
Until we breathe life through these questions
Don't ask me, ask the empty void
For the answer comes from yourself

Freefall through the pointlessness
Make a mockery of the rules
Open my eyes, see my vision
And see that I've saved you

Without me you
Would be too whole
Too pure for eclectic conception
An artist untenable
Me? A machine
Just another carbon copy
Of a perfect being
Another

Orchestrating brave new worlds
Transcend, evolve, believe, yet
Forever we will remain
We will remain

Pointless is as point remains
Until we breathe life through these questions
Don't ask me, ask the empty void
For the answer comes from yourself

We will remain
(Remain now)
For now forgotten
Our creation born in vain
(Creation born in vain)
For now forever
Track Name: Raven
Prophet, thing of evil
Prophet still if bird or devil
Whether tempter sent or whether
Tempest tossed thee here ashore
Desolate yet all undaunted,
On this desert land enchanted
On this home by horror haunted
Tell me truly

I implore
What is this?
Raven prophet
Dreaming demon

Prophet, thing of evil!
Prophet still if a bird or devil!
By that Heaven that bends above us
by that God we both adore
Tell this soul with sorrow laden
If within the distant Aidenn
It shall clasp a sainted maiden
Whom the angels named
Lenore

Oh Lenore
I pray for you
The raven prophet, speaks of nevermore
One word quoted I, one word said
Nevermore, nevermore in my head
Don't tell me
I am dreaming
For awoken I was
By the tapping
On the portal
To my world loss
Track Name: Virtue
Pre-formed ideas wither you
Weigh up the facts (think it through)
I know you have a mind to lose
Save yourself
Keep your eyes wholly fixed and free
Don’t take a path for its ease
I know you have a mind to lose
Save yourself

If you know the path, let others follow freely

Your philosophy in darkness won't recede
When we are all wholly void we'll realise
Our qualities
Better to be filthy
Than blank

Dig out
Recover
Witness
Awakening

I face this boldly
I Will not compromise
Even in dawning madness
I won't give in I won't die
I will fight
I may fall
What really matters
Is I fought at all

You will fight
You may fall
What really matters
Is you fought at all!
We fight
We fall
Forever

In the darkest recess
We can still find the light
When you drop the pretence
That dark is wrong and light is right
That there's power in despair
In which we wallow
I will go whole
In debt to honour
Track Name: Inertia
How can you break from the chains
The chains of this self-inflicted slavery
Antithesis, senseless
The heart of all my weakness

Staggering, gasping for breath
As I sink into a cycle of despair
Reawaken demons of old
Reawaken

If I'm insane
Then insanity
Is fucking lucidity
Never been clearer
In all my time

Sweet poison flow
Consume me whole
Comfort in addiction
Lack of control
Sight clouds over
Blind immoralities
Awaken, from
Nightmares or memories?

So I remain
In this depravity
That beckons as gravity
Never been nearer
To the line.

Silent voices fall around me
But I can’t reach beyond my own afflictions
Meaning lost, your cries are distant
But I can’t reach beyond my own addictions
Sweet poison flow, consume me whole
Sweet poison flow, consume me whole

Silent voices fall around me
But I can’t reach beyond my own afflictions
Meaning lost, your cries are distant
But I can’t reach beyond my own addictions

How can you break from the chains
The chains of this self-inflicted slavery
Antithesis, senseless
Track Name: Disconnected
Born, free
Forever regressing
To a state of total self-doubt
Searching for what it is to be

Wander, disconnected
Disillusioned, medicated
Cracking under the pressure
Mere shells of what we were born to be

There is a way, step back, start over
Open your eyes

Drown in the colour
Immerse yourself within its beauty

Crawling, mutilated
Withered, broken-hearted

This was not meant to be your fate
Your integrity is wasting away
There is still time
There is still time

Drown in the colour
Immerse yourself within its beauty
Gaze into the fires that defined you
Be one, be yourself
