Track Name: Balanced
feel the weight
tip the scale below
proportioned powers where the light was meant to grow
cast aside
left behind

now, we all demand achievement for our hard work
the sentiment, you'll find that it's too hard to ignore
and without reward, you'll find it's hard to motivate at all
but if we ain't hungry, why cannibalize the poor?
left to die
let the strong survive
yeah right

you feel the weight
tip the scale below
proportioned powers where the light was meant to grow
now you know, with a lack of balance
caused by those who would tip the boat
it takes it's toll on the world that strives to stay afloat

too far to one side
you'll find the greedy and the selfish thrive
polarized, well, you'd find outright denial of it all
when all in all, when it balances
we find the peace of mind and the life will carry on and on

let it carry on
spent all your life
in adoration of the golden mean
with the fears below
so rock the boat in moderation
till the counterweight gets heavy, take back control
set us back on course

'till you feel the weight
you know
proportioned power's where the light was meant to grow
now you know, with a lack of balance
caused by those who would tip the boat
it takes it's toll on the world that strives to stay afloat

too far to one side
you'll find the greedy and the selfish, they thrive
polarized, well, you'd find outright denial of it all
when all in all, when it balances
we find the peace of mind and the light will carry on

beauty is truth
truth is beauty
that is all you'll know within this world
and it's all you need to know to save your soul
Track Name: Villain
step back

is this the nemesis of what I bleed to be?
I fight the good fight in every day
you walk around like you're not due for a reckoning
I'm here to help you to rue the day

'cause you're not seeing it our way

stand down

well I've tried to pride myself on holding integrity
but God I hate watching you succeed
pullin' knives from backs with horror in disbelief
as you pay no mind to the ones betrayed
that's why I'll say

that you're not seeing it our way
having honour is key
but I can't stop thinkin' I'm not where I deserve to be
unlocks the cell and breaks out the villain in me

feed on the wrong prey
step back, stand down, you've had your day
turn the tables, turn another page
my white into grey

turning over tables in the temple's not the way I was raised
but even righteous men have moments of rage

you're not seeing it our way
having honour is key
but I can't stop thinkin' I'm not where I deserve to be
turns out the villain in you churns out the villain in me
muhuhahahahahahahahahahaha!
Track Name: Être
I've been watching the world
felt the heat of the after burn
the black bridges behind you
burn reminders of what you'll learn
when you drown on your return

'cause in the air
there's a quiet sense
I see right through you
and I'm better than this

hope you're havin' a ball
I hope you're clinkin' your glasses while they're full
cause in the end what you deserve, it's comin' full circle
and you'll get what you deserve

you and I are opposed
your intentions are yours alone
you are entangled in all you know
I think it's high time to let it show
cause in the end it's all you'll know

and in the air
there's a quiet sense
I see right through you
and I'm better than this

hope you're havin' a ball
I hope you're clinkin' your glasses while they're full
cause in the end what you deserve, it's comin' full circle

it takes time... karmatic intervals...
and you can sleep in the bed that you made
it takes time
you'll be reaping what you sow
when you find out the hard way
I'll be watching from afar
well you know you'd be honest
if you were true to who you are

'cause in the air
there's a quiet sense
I see right through you
and I'm better than this

hope you're havin' a ball
I hope you're clinkin' your glasses while they're full
cause in the end what you deserve, well it's all comin' full circle

and you'll be having the time of your life in the afterworld
yeah... you think you've figured it out
but in the end you'll get what you deserve
Track Name: the Hourglass
when I began, the world, it gave me little time
left in the womb, well I would be left to die
time was slipping through the hourglass
and I can't deny it, I owe my life to disrupting that

well... timing's everything
it's everything
but though the moment comes and goes
believe
if the time was right for you to meet your ghost, you would

throughout this life I've been asleep inside of time
I cannot fight it, I've ingrained it in my mind
time is slipping through the hourglass
right here, right now
I just can't wait for the time to pass

and well... timing's everything
it's everything
but though the moment comes and goes
believe
if the time was right for you to meet your ghost, you would

you'd find your hard earned soul
as one within it all
you'll see beyond our "dimensia"
I believe there is a plane above our minds
past the constraints of time
connect to the divine
see it live, (at the same time, while you) see it die
and ask yourself why

well I believe there is a plane beyond the bounds of time

well I can't deny myself, cause I don't have the right
I search for answers still 'cause I am of the conscious open mind
time is shattering the hourglass
and I fear the change, but I just can't wait for the aftermath

yeah, well... timing's everything
it's everything
but though the moment comes and goes
believe
if the time was right for you to meet your ghost, you would
you know you would

all this time has come to pass
when all the while there was the hourglass
Track Name: Nightlights & Skylines
we're only light years away
let's get carried away
create extravagant display
when seen from beyond our world
well, the darkness perpetrates

with the power to light these skies
comes the blinders on our eyes
when all along these ancient sights have shined
where burning fires are road signs still reaching for the eyes

as the night is falling
I will watch from afar
see the glow from the city
be replaced by the stars

that great beyond
I keep asking myself
where have they gone?

in this relation, the Drake equates
the worlds beyond our skies
the wisdom of ghosts denied
then lost in sands of time

the blinding Babel, built so high
the fire scrapes the sky
for all below, we live without the right
to see beyond the bright and
feed that meaning of the night

as the darkness, it conquers the light
I will watch from afar
see the glow from the city
be replaced by the stars

that great beyond
I feel humbled, myself
I look above

well they saw us arise
saw us arrive
with God as a witness they'll see the great decline

feeling a low
to hide in the glow, below
well it'd be like denying myself the rites of old

let's get carried away...
we're only light years away... from home

I'll see you when the darkness falls
Track Name: Greener (in the Comfort of Sun)
oh, when it's all said and done, well
you know it's greener in the comfort of the sun until
when in the comfort of green
well, you'll finally learn what it actually means to

inhale perception
and feel it separate
and then the instant your misguided fear is erased, replaced
it's time to make my case

find a light in the darkest place
go slow
discover the afterglow
you know, to blindly believe
well it just shows your naivety
your need to feel the green

and oh, if I told you the truth, well
you'd probably think that I'm a liar
think what you will
cause I can see through the seams
in this pocket the world has provided for me
empowered
I've been breathing through the looking glass
so while the rest of you wait for the smoke to pass

I'll inhale perception
and feel it separate
and then the instant your misguided fear is erased, replaced
it's time to make my case

light up the darkness
go slow
discover the afterglow
you know, to blindly believe
well it just shows your naivety
the need to feel the green

well, your misconceptions are eating at me
tales of our fathers' misguided greed
your misconceptions are tales of misguided reality

so please, you've got to go slow
discover the afterglow
to blindly believe
you know it shows your naivety
the need to feel it breathe
the need to feel the green
Track Name: the Itch
beyond the edge of our exterior
the itch begins to grow
we could try and scratch ourselves
but I just can't help but feel beside myself, when I'm alone

eyes are stealing glances of you
stop, shy away when you cast your eyes at me
cause makes me feel
like a coward
and a thief

but oh, you know, beyond the edge of our exterior
the itch begins to grow
we could try to scratch ourselves
but I just can't help but feel beside myself, when I'm alone

what's the spell you've cast upon me?
what do you see when you look at me?
and subconsciously
you know I know what you need
what you need is me
stay with me

well, Lord knows I'm a gentleman
and I can be sweet
but underneath I am a beast
and I want you to come with me
I'm gonna take you home
scratch the surface of your soul

beyond the edge of our exterior
the itch begins to grow
we could try to scratch ourselves
but I just can't help but feel beside myself, when I'm alone
when I'm on my own, and

time to carry it home, yeah, you'll see
right, it was meant to be
oh, I'm on fire
I'm in need
come to me
Track Name: Method & Manipulation
well there's a strange
new kind of war
you may think that you're safe
it's already in your home
so be afraid
living in this world
never try to escape
it's not safe inside these walls

you'll feel it again
controlled by fear, fall into their service and then
with absence of thought
if you break down and let them into your head
you're already dead

now there's a plague of hypnotic horror
our eyes are transfixed
and we're the hive-mind hoard
and if you think you could be something more
you're completely insane
that's right, you're in the wrong

you'll feel it again
controlled by fear, fall into their service and then
with absence of thought
if you break down and let them into your head
you're already dead

and this is the waking of the fallen
get out of our head
walking undead
your lying has caused this unrest
this is the call of the forgotten
get out of our head
walking undead
your lying has caused this unrest
so get out of my head

now there's a violent fate that will befall us all
there's already a patsy in place, ready to take that fall
you'll never see through this blinding fog
we report, you decide
you know the sky?
it's about to fall

you'll feel it again
controlled by fear, fall into their service
with absence of thought,
if you break down and let them into your head
you're already dead

and this is the waking of the fallen
get out of our head
walking undead
your lies have caused this unrest again
this is it, the call of the forgotten
get out of our head
you're lying
and we're walking undead
so get out of my head
Track Name: deNihilism!
under the lullaby moves a silence feared by most
we shut our eyes, just to rest for a while
but the nightmare, well it's woken us up

in the end
given more than you've taken away
tried hard
we learn thinkin' of your mistakes
and save for the darkness there's no other way
for the dawn to break

our demise set the planet alight but the cycle promotes a growth
we stumbled blind for a short little while
but the fire rallied our eyes to adjust

in the end
given more than you've taken away
tried hard
we learn thinkin' of your mistakes
and save for the darkness there's no other way
for the dawn to break

you know time will make this right, it's time to go
it starts with a cycle
with a circle

now you could deny my right to criticize
cause your dominion, well it don't see to my life
but don't you dare close my eyes
we've been watching like a bird in flight
right?

a goodnight, a goodbye
we'll crowd around to see you die
when all of this time
with your pride
you've been part of churning out the wise
you've been fired
you've been catalyzed

if your failures had all been for not
would we still be your fools or what?
what's this feeling you cannot ignore?
you've revived the informed

in the end
given more than you've taken away
tried hard
we learn thinkin' of your mistakes
save for the darkness there's no other way
for the dawn to break

you know time will make this right, it's time to go
it ends with a cycle
with a circle
Track Name: Still
so if the plan is moving forward
let's cut the brakes as we roll along
you know it's tricky pulling over
watch me crash into the wall

just leave me dying on the bloody floor
they always do
things have changed
it's so much brighter than it was before
and all these things were killing me
till I decided I should let it be

and as the time was moving onward
well I've come to count on you one and all
and with the rest all safely wired
still you make me me take the fall

just leave me dying on the bloody floor
they always do
things have changed
it's so much brighter than it was before
and all these things were killing me
till I decided I should let it be

I need you to see
I'm on it
I breathe
I'm on it
perceive
I'm on it
I bleed
I'm on it, believe

in the same way we've all been dying to rest here in peace
(I'm still alive when I breathe)
in the same way they're all allying to keep you in need
(it's what I choose to believe)
it's the same thing, keeps you off your knees

I know I've seen this all before
I bleed
I know I've been here once before
and I bleed to see inside of me
I know I must be doing something wrong
but I've been dying to make you see

see me dying on the floor
the angels passing over bloody doors
well they always do
the same thing
but so much brighter than it was before
and all these things were killing me
till I decided I should let it be
I let it be
Track Name: a Scientist's Faith
well at first the faith was blind
then evolved a rational mind

and all these things we ask ourselves
will I face judgment for all the things I've said and done?
should I resign myself to a power up above?
does any facet have the answer yet?
I need to know
the unknown

and all these things we ask ourselves
if I came to find this light would it guide my way along?
should I define what's right by what others say is wrong?
does any facet have the answer?
I need to know
the unknown

but all your answers unwittingly
were lying through your teeth
this illogical blasphemy
is blinding what the truth could be
you're on your knees
you need your eyes open to see
let light in
bless your heart till it's all you need

till it's all you need

so, looking back
broken fragments of ancient lore
echoes of all through the ages
and on these shoulders stand the giants of our faith

but the rest was out of date

looking forward
moving onward the way things are
theories and reasons for everything
that doesn't mean, my friends, that seeing is belief

maybe the science is without faith
maybe the faith is blind
maybe the science answers how
and the faith is a why
while the faith is asking why

the science is how | spirit
said, the science is asking how | feel it
and we'll figure it out
said, the science is asking how | spirit asks why
let's be reasonable about this
the science is how | feel it asking why
why?

beating hearts...
and all these things we ask ourselves
if I could define this life, would I find my way to love?
should I align myself with a power up above?
does any facet have the answer yet?
I need to know

the unknown
