World · Lifting of the Veil · Cleanse · Primitive Circuitry · Men Like Gods


World

Steeper · way in; sinking · way in; drowning · I set my sail for a higher plane, but I may give up · I may give up my only hope · I have gone away to a place of darkness · I may give up my only hope · a journey gone wrong · this is my new home · here at the edge of light · here at the edge of life · I fade away in silence · I may give up · I may give up my only hope · I have gone away to a place of darkness · my path gets steeper

What I Leave · from lifetimes past and evils vast we're fleeing · existence bled from cities dead, unseeing · but I want to leave this place · restore our breath · outlook embrace · the blackened sky is cracked by broken silhouettes · in dreams we see them · we should have known that it would never last · what have we done? · you have a lost look in your eyes · we are all lost, cast out · I must learn from what I leave behind

Dividation · you reminded me of a life I once had · what I once thought trivial and lost is now in the open · if we speak of days past · it is only to ignore the present · I found you hiding in the corners of a lost world · a divided world · I'm trying · a heavy air rides above you · suffocating · we are awake among the sleeping · you are falling toward them · falls our judgment · you don't recognize me anymore · I am nothing to you · I'm not proud · do I seem proud? · I'm not proud · I'm distant · I'm trying · a heavy air rides above you · suffocating · we are awake among the sleeping · you are them · falls our judgment · you don't recognize me anymore · I am nothing to you · don't resist the change · we are all broken now · lost in the setting sun

World · finally we are coming home · stranger shores we have seen on our journey · we have paid our price when we remembered what was · and what could be · we missed you all · missed you all · we have returned · here we are at the end of the world · we crossed the bridge · and when we burned it · the whole sky lit aflame · is this truly the end · or is it a new beginning? · we see a light of hope for our dying world · everything here is seen anew · like a dream that will not end · these are the beginnings of our days


Lifting of the Veil

Tyrus · goliath · the tower looms · a temple to what should never have been · tyrus is coming to bring the end · hallelujah · and we wait · are we wasting our time · keeping our gardens of treasure · our gardens of waste? · come see the lifting of the veil · the burden we are · lifted from the earth


Cleanse

Syzygy · careful when you come to reap · insolence breeds impurity · sacred bodies shift into line · what you were becomes charred · as phoenix rose so you will rise · a rebirth of renewal and ruin · you're holding it away · tears from outside mark scars inside · tears from outside keep you sane · you're stumbling into the cycle that was your downfall · there's no real in this reality but what chains us · shame in the new light reveals the true self · that's how we are

Solace · we met in a fever · two lost in oblivion · crouching under rain of debris and hate · the clouds all turn disease · litters of those who fell cannot touch us as we transcend · pray that everything will be alright · pray that it will be alright · lift your eyes to the sun and know · you will never see it again · if only we could recall · we would find solace · it lies in the simple things that we so often forget

Tidal · I am coming · I am coming down · this is for you · this was always for you · when it came · it came in waves · it crashed down on me · in you I saw light · in you I saw myself · you were only a dream · now I can't forget the way you looked at me · now we will see it as it really is · oceans below us · but we will never fall in · not now · not anymore · I am coming · I am coming down · I am coming · I am coming around

Voyager · we move along the spokes · sailing outward · tethered orbiting each other we drift · Andromeda is dim on the horizon · our souls stream out to it and we dream of light · like a lonely pathway · I am home with you · in time what I have done will clear · my broken promise will disappear · in time what I have done will clear · I do all I can to save you

New Truth · when can we find the reason for all our faults? · when can we find the new truth of this Earth? · when can we disappear into ourselves? · when can we find the new truth of this Earth? · the reason lies at the beginning · the truth lies at the end · have mercy on us · we know not the cost · have mercy on us · we are the lost

Immersion · I have become immersed in you


Primitive Circuitry

Cast of the Revelation · step into brilliant light · after all this I will just melt away · the swarm encapsulates my body · devours my essence · is one touch all it would take · is one touch enough · lying naked, forgotten · the sky has never looked so blue · Walking empty streets · all I think of · all I think of is you · I do not know pain · I do not know death · I do not know pain · I do not know your graceful hand · I will become those who left us all behind · I do not know pain · I do not know fear · but I understand everything

Lockout · millions poured into the machine · millions, but they never saw me · as I listened · hundreds threw hungry hands to the sky · together we cursed the machine · there was so much we couldn't see · and what we didn't understand we never could · get on in · no looking back · we've come too far

A Grey Cell · when we turned out the lights · in your empty room · we won't look back · we won't look back · I asked myself why I came here even though you had been there all along · lost in two oceans · a sea of remembrance · I'll never drown · only for your sake · it won't seem too long · when we turn the lights back on

Pyramid Lies · the words of the old gods were nothing more · the worlds of the new gods will set us free · when thousands of tiny lights are all it takes · it seems so wrong when thousands of tiny lights are all it takes · it's gone too far · I open myself and let it all flood in · I open myself and a new life begins

The Rhetoric Drain · on hands and knees · everything looks different · on hands and knees · the result is the same · he tried to speak but only a harsh whisper escapes his gaping jaw · he'd known it all along · waiting to be emptied · he tried to speak but only a harsh whisper escapes his gaping jaw · and as it happened · he dreamed of a different world · find you inside · why do you sigh?

Primitive Circuitry · I had a dream about you · as we lay beneath the blazing sun · engulfing our bodies · I realized that there are things that last forever · I had a dream about you · I had a dream about nothing · I had a dream about you · soon I'll sleep again · rewiring our circuitry · rewiring, it can't be done

Inheritance · today I saw a nation fall · today I ran from all I'd known · I saw the sky turn black · I saw misery in the streets · I saw fear · I didn't care · soon this will all be yours · the land of mediocrity · do not weep for them · for they brought it on · do not weep for them · they brought it on themselves


Men Like Gods

Watching the Lid · it was your fault · this copper-fueled nightmare · I pulled off your mask · how putrid · as the flakes fall · and I crept through the sludge · a tiny beam · entered our minds · I pray one day I'll be cured · I pray one day we'll be pure · you forgot I can see right through you · I can see right through to the sky · burning · seething · retching · dying · hoping · forming · breathing · lying

Dead Revolution · all of these people, trapped in their fantasy · I built my fortress with these wooden arms · it won't take long to burn it away · the last dance of my descent · it won't take long to melt it down · it was never real anyway · this time – it's lies · grabbing hands and jealous eyes radiate my lust · breathing? I don't need it · I won't take the world on my back · this time – it's lies

Replicant · stepping over broken glass · stretched into a nerve · falling into the grinder · twenty-two and I can't take any of it back · the more I learn, the less I know · between the lines, it's draining, I can't take it · the more I learn, the less I know · what I wouldn't give to be alive again · one hundred seasons, a memory · unless it's now that I'm asleep · now there's no such thing as innocence · bathe in ultraviolet · come and see dissolution · we will be wilting

Everything Is Alright · if there was one day · I could clear my mind · if I knew a way · I could breathe in deep · look on my works · already I am the one who despairs · with a heavy hand · I wipe the dust and tears away · that I may live · that I may go on · that it could shine · as bright as you · seeing, being alive · it's not what has come through · dying, wasting this time · I don't believe in you · "everything is alright" · that was a lie · "everything is alright" · every word is a sigh · every song is a whisper · grant me peace through all of this · grant me a piece

Crawl Space · red tongues taste the air · come and watch it with me · drops of bullets on the ground and in your mouth · it's in the air · we don't know who we are · who we'll never be · spark hunger · sunburnt eyes · spark hunger · grey lights fill this space · all is sanctified · come with me and fall from grace · as english dies · the dust cakes thick · blank eyes · in a crawl space · terrorized · I won't die this way · I can't die this way

Behind Red · satisfied in my scheme · but you came and threw it all out · drowning in my immolation · comforting consonance slipping away · rusting in the womb · drowning in your spite · choking on this debt · kill in contempt · tearing the skin back · can't make me whole again · tearing the skin back · won't make it right with you · I want out · take me out · come move me · I'll be I · satisfied in my scheme · but you came and threw me away

Men Like Gods · shelve it; the world has moved on · it's all graffiti and fading billboards · you see how it can turn from one day to one day · it's time to shut the gates, it's time to close yourself · we could stand up · we could show ourselves · we could hold on · we could... but why? · I don't know you anymore · maybe I don't know myself · I'll pull you down, I'll make you feel again · it's been so long · for all this time, you've been dreaming · it all went wrong · a single hydrogen blaze · washes out my eyes · it's just a cycle of "create and decay" · it's just a cycle · it's all so violent · we'll put all this to rest · we'll bury it in stories and moments · I'll tear out the scars · I swear I've changed, I've grown · we are both older than these words and these sounds · we are both younger than this life will ever be
