Track Name: The Way It Ends
Just a thought
To add suspense
To all the games
Of discontent

Fear is real
But not self-taught
You let others
Be the cause

There we go racing towards the sun
Ignoring all the noise
Striving for the grace of man
People play this great charade
And always miss the point
Never fall for prophecies

You say it draws near
That it will be clear
You act so convinced
A fortress you’ve built
Remember the doubt
By which I now stand
You write the book
On the way it all ends

Tear down
Those mighty walls
Reinvent
The way you talk

Look ahead
Not down below
Or high above
Where angels flow

There we go racing towards the sun
Ignoring all the noise
Striving for the grace of man
People play this great charade
And always miss the point
Never fall for prophecies

Waiting to see
Our kind disagree
You draw the line
And stick to your pride
Remember the doubt
By which I now stand
You write the book
On the way…

It ends


(Solo: Kragen)
(Solo: Vince)
(Solo: Kragen)

You say it draws near
That it will be clear
You act so convinced
A fortress you’ve built
Remember the doubt
By which I now stand
You wrote the book
On the way it all ends

It ends
Track Name: Probe
Take me to your silence
To where the end begins
(The beginning ends)
Circle through my mind
And spread my psyche thin

Let’s tear through space and time
Peer at the null and void
(Infinite mass)
Etch the skin with piercing cries
Until the heart explodes

Probing you
Damaged you
Probing you
(Probe)

Immortal wicked flesh
A taste, to never die
(To die forever)
Evasive mortal coil
The spiral that unwinds

Probing you
Filtered you
Probing you
(Probe)

(Solo – Kragen)

The end is near, the path is clear
One tainted soul
We drain the sweat, sidestep the fear
Beyond the mold

Probing you
Damaged you
Probing you
(Probe)
Track Name: Devotion
Say my name
Now try in vain
Welcome the swarm
Spirit forlorn

Violent capture
Haunting you
Far from heaven
Faith untrue

Taste my soul, faint
Change this child’s shape
Reminds me
Devotion

(Solo: Kragen)

Keep that cross
Sign of loss

Led by torture
Crazed sky
Blame my mother
Failed cry

Take thy strength, rape
Change this blind faith
Reminds me
Devotion

(Solo: Kragen)
(Solo: Vince)

Craving death
My last breath

He has power
He I crave
Take me father
Now I’m saved
Track Name: With Vision
Remember the times past
A will of fire, a new book cast
To feel mystified, in turn, tried
The slate concretized, in all its might

Remember…

With vision
See your fate, emancipate
With vision
Watch the flow of seeds you sew

(Solo: Kragen)

Exchanging vast ideas
Repeating poems as wonder nears
To feel realized, your goals right
The truth formalized, a rare sight

Remember…

With vision
Tides will turn when fires burn
With vision
If you know that it is so

(Solo: Kragen)
(Solo: Vince)

Impending broad event
Can justify this time well spent
The chill in my bones, my senses shine
What was made of stone is now a rhyme…

(Solo: Kirk)
Track Name: Synthespian
I am too real
I assume all of your dreams come true
The anger you feel
Is so common to you

You are all the same
I’m a new miracle
Never stop me

(Solo: Kragen)

I am the new generation
Synthespian my name
Bound to perfection
Control I sustain
Control I sustain

Calling out my name
In your eyes, powerful
Always beneath me
Track Name: Transcendent Velocity
These worlds
All for you to seize
Countless plains
A place for you to breed

Europa
The moon you shall not touch
Growing lifeforce
A diamond in the rough

Transcendent velocity
(In) which we spread idolatry

(Solo: Kragen)

Monolith
Symbolize the truth
God is this?
Another sun to prove

Transcendent velocity
(In) which we spread idolatry
Track Name: Seed
Learning to fly in skies
That fail to persuade my soul
Has shattered my mind

So helpless I bleed
Emptied nest of creativity
The silence no longer my friend
Or my seed

Found myself holding on
To something that was so untrue
Trying to make up for all
That was gone

Reversing time and fighting the tide
Impregnating fate with my pride
I will not compromise

(Solo: Kragen)
Track Name: Undying
(Solo: Vince)

A somber portrait fills my heart
The feeling of remembering
It makes it so easy to forget
Until I pass you by

The thought of watching you not seeing me
And erasing all that was
Portraits fading, the memories end
Replacing this time

I’m undying to forget you
This time
It’s undying that I’ll turn to

(Solo: Kragen)

And now the fog begins to rise
I’ll return to a cold, cold place
The pain concealed, now tossed away
Just like before

I’m undying to forget you
This time
It’s undying that you’ll burn to
Track Name: Heart Machine
Encoded lines of energy
No limitation of technology
Create a shell to house the soul
Emotion engine reigns a being whole

Once again
Breathing to
Transcend

Pre-evolved
Heart Machine
Re-absolved
Heart Machine

Mechanic feeling synergy
Digitizing new biology
Inspiration fusion mold
Manufactured intellect behold

Once again
Breathing to
Transcend

Pre-evolved
Heart Machine
Re-absolved
Heart Machine

(Solo: Kragen)

Pre-evolved
Heart Machine
Re-absolved

Heart Machine
Track Name: Cold Is This God
What will I say in misery?
Whom will I ask to be my advocate?
In times of need I scream to see my enemy
I feel the knot inside of me
Set me free

Kneeling in pain
Condemned to the flames
No! I did nothing wrong
I'll never be ashamed
Oh just lord of vengeance
Be true to thy name
End this prophecy
Please now let me be

Into the night, out of the skies
Eternal light, shine upon my eyes
The rain of angels, storm of lies, idolize
Turn the page and find out why we're
Scared to die

Kneeling in pain
Condemned to the flames
No! I did nothing wrong
I'll never be ashamed
Oh just lord of vengeance
Be true to thy name
End this prophecy
Please now leave me

(Solo: Kragen)

Dead is the hill that I must climb
Cold is this God
Not alive

Kneeling in pain
Condemned to the flames
No! I did nothing wrong
I'll never be ashamed
Oh just lord of vengeance
Be true to thy name
End this prophecy
Please now let me be
