Track Name: Nyctalopia
Reborn into a brighter shade
With hopes to never touch the ground
Fight your way through a jungle of thorns
The worst is surely behind us now
But where is the way?

Lay down to rest the night away
Contemplating where to turn
Dreams of the end transcend boundaries
Lost in the moment and the way
The stars disappear

You've been shut out
Denied life
Running through time

Your dreams ran away

Traverse the unknown in the dark night
Followed by shadows cast by moonlight
Running for your life
Desperate for the sunrise

But it just set
But it just set
But it just set
For the last time

Closing in
This is it
Swallowed whole by
Nothing at all

Your dreams have run away
Track Name: Glow
It's the nothing hour
Pale world outside my window
Storm clouds invade my head
Crushing the plans of a new day

Nothing has changed
My worlds still spins
In blissful freedom
My mind can't speak
But my soul can breathe
In this empty space

Nothing to do or say
But drink the wine of life
And as I drift away
My dreams evolve into the next day

Concern is dead
My worlds still spins
In blissful freedom
My mind can't speak
But my soul can breathe
In this empty space

All that has kept me sane
Is what drives others insane
My own life
My own time
My own mind
So far away

My own life
(All that has kept me sane)
My own time
My own mind
(Is what drives others insane)
So far away
Track Name: Waking Adrift
I wondered why they disappeared
I never thought I'd see this day
She always knew their seperate ways
Living in the world of yesterday

I saw it all and walked away
No one is the same
It's gonna fall in favor's way
It's all inside you

Overthink, overcomplicate
Let chance take control over you

Look downward to the waking eyes
Fall victim to aching hours
I knew tomorrow and yesterday
But not today
Contradicting moments in time
All over the ways
Of doing nothing at all
Condescending
Track Name: Motionless
Complications bring words of
Remembrance to the ear
Although the motions are silent
They've only just begun

Visions of sunsets
Are smothered by sunrise
What has begun must resolve
In an ending that forgoes and forsakes a world of
gloom

Severed clean, you are now free
From the desperate grasps of a drowning soul
none other than your own
The sight gives light to three degrees of sorrow
fear and joy
The soul submerges and you are reborn into a
motionless snapshot of gold
Clocks without a time

The weight of broken dreams will be lifted off
your shoulders
If footsteps follow their own tracks
And never turn around
The world will remain forever motionless
But you will rest with content
As the clockwork slowly winds down
Never to make a sound

Never to make a sound
Track Name: Angelina
Velvet eyes shining right through me
As she softly whispers into my ears
I'm at peace when she speaks to me
Yet her words are incomprehensible

Lost, falling through violet blurs
She will find a way to save my life

She walks closely distant by my side
Invisible to all the others
My mistress is one of a kind
Ethereal, invading my dreams
A mystery left alone

Lost, falling through violet blurs
She will find a way to save my life
Even though she's the danger
She will find a way to save my life

This could be the last time that I ever walk the earth
I will dissolve into her flesh
Forever lost within another universe
Content with just the two of us
Track Name: Coda
Can I ever see
What it is to me
That screams aloud through the hour
We all want to know
Can't we ever lay
Down for a rest once in a while
Impossible to say

It couldn't ever be this way
Who would want to hold out for this fate

We parade through the streets
On nothing but a whim
Just to get our minds off it all

A moment the insane
Would want to go away
Within the blink of an eye

I tried
I tried

It still went away

And I have seen
All I could imagine
Run away

Exhausted effort
Sleep it all away
To pass the time

No one at all
Could fathom every call
Of authorities
Climbing over the walls

In the cheerless cries
Of the overwhelmed lives
They have found a way
To finally escape
To finally live
To finally catch some rest

It couldn't ever be this way
Who would want to hold out for this fate
I've wandered around for days and days
Only to return to the start

The end
The end
The end
The cycle repeats now
