Track Name: Metaepitome
The games behind, the wise man said, is played.
Behind the curtain veil his eyes can't see
What his mind won't recieve
his time is out

The rain must fall to put out the fire
like any dying man would agree
forgiveness is a mighty power,
..it finally occured to me how dark.
IT can be in the shadows.
The war.
Cries are deafening darkness.
Death.
Lies and deceit.
Oh heavens rain on me..

And he remembers:
1. A time before he was
2. A part he had
3. A scheme
But time it fades his memory --> it changes.
When tomorrow comes.

The rain must fall
To put out the fire, like.

"Any dying man would agree
forgiveness is a mighty power!"
-it finally occured to me.

How dark?
It can be in the shadows!
The war cries are deafening,
darkness, death, lies, and deciet.
Oh heavens rain on me..

Lately he has been seen in his garden
Plucking the flowers
Desperately wasting his time with:

-"How could I go back to yesteryear?"
-"Now look.
Please understand.
it's not like actual time were talking here.
It's just that.. you know..
those things you leave behind..
..Have a tendency to sneak up on you
Mind you its not all bad, like,
some of it is, well, positive
and that's what I'm going on about!"

The world in his hands is twisted
To emphasize this twist of fate
A projection of what he sees no longer
sufficed to him
a remedy, a fix to feed your head.

Like the doormouse said:
-"Tomorrow rain must fall"

He looks around with a passive frown
At the rotten streets of this unholy town
The distance is a million miles
His sight is weak, and he cannot see

The greener fields and the calmest streams
And the winding road leading straight to it
He is coming to his senses
Now the awakening is so surreal to me

A co-existence
of all things real and all things unreal
clear as it can be
So brace yourself the time has come
To climb the wall down,
down,
down..
Yeah to climb the wall
To see it falling down
To look in to the future
Yeah to climb the wall
To see it falling down
To look in to the future

In the silence of the heart
where no prying eye can see
wait.. there's something down there?

and if there is, it is not of me,
and thus cannot claim dominion
but it does, over me

There's movement in the dark
ears ringing of fear
the bells sound a warning
of news that came too late
the ground begins to shudder
as the enemy awakes

I am lust and fear and hate
I bring lies, unjustice and death
the age of war is at hand so pick your side!
run to the hills if you will,
but know that you cant hide an enemy inside
not on your own
with me by your side you might have a chance
come along for the ride
-I promise a good one.

so (I) began the fall
so (I) began the falling down
no looking to the future

The way it turned out
is never quite what it seemed to be
a way out to war
ride on a storm god knows the poor need
..a new morning
Track Name: Butterfly's Cry
My eyes are burning for what I see I can't believe
what forces are at work here
if I see why should I believe

once again I'm standing at the crossroads and I sigh
why can't I decide
my sweet vision of freedom is a butterfly's cry
from the realities of life

my heart was yearning
for the feeling of enlightenment
but when I'm immersed in it
is it real or foul deceit

once again I'm standing at the crossroads and I sigh
why can't I decide
my sweet vision of freedom is a butterfly's cry
from the realities of life

no it won't be the last lost illusion
dis-enchanted I am
defending
no it won't be the last impending
the ending

in the sweet days of spring
just as the sun was starting to kick in
yes I was a fool
and I always imagined it
so that all the cards I needed would be in my hands
but time it flows through our hand like sand
just as I identified the moment as a beginning
well that was when it already started to end
and a feeling was growing inside of me

no it won't be the last lost illusion
dis-enchanted I am
defending
no it won't be the last impending
the ending

no it won't be the last lost illusion
dis-enchanted I am
defending
no it won't be the last impending
the ending

I must be learning
ah yes, because it's fading

once again I'm standing at the crossroads and I sigh
why can't I decide
my sweet vision of freedom is a butterfly's cry
from the realities of life
Track Name: ...to the Madness
March, march knowing well certain death awaits us
Onwards, onwards
The masters yell from their ivory towers
Cowards!
Blind men lead the blind men
dreaming of arrival, of asylum, of revival
Seek, seek and seek you shall
'till flesh and bones are rot and mould
Stake, stake, stake your claim
Rape your land I'll do the same
The same!
Cogs and wheels of blood we are
mechanised, baptized in fire
Sacrifice your inner self
for the greater good, for the common wealth
For greed and lust we march
We march for fear 'till death we march
The world commands us to

Crawl through this earth
'till darkness us devour
Don't leave me out

Fear of darkness
Illusion
Crawl with me

I'm lost
I'm getting colder

Grind, grind into dust
From whence thou came return thou must
Decay!
A Morbid Mistress and Father Time
molest their offspring: You and I
Self inflicted wounds of hatred
transform us into drones
Faceless censors keep us all in line
The screaming beast of eternal lies commands us to

Crawl through this earth
'till darkness us devour
Don't leave me out

Fear of darkness
Illusion
Crawl with me

I'm lost

Step forward and show yourself
Oh you who can claim to be free
of bondage and other such things
Share with us the wisdom of your ways
Or stay hidden for the rest of your days
Away, be gone, can't you read the signs?
Were you not told to question the lies
you we're taught as a child
Or do you cling to a utopian view?
If so, I should very much like to witness this delight
A sweet delusion of senses quite extraordinary
Where one might bask in the light of innocent child-like cruelty
Awake, awake! The authorities arrive
This will not do, they cry
Where is your freedom now?
Will you not fight?
Will you fall in the hands of your peers
or fall back into the cave you left at first light

Crawl through this earth
'till darkness us devour
Don't leave me out
We crawl through this earth
'till darkness us devour
Don't leave me now
I'm lost
Track Name: Haydenspark
A revelation to start with the upside of:
Nature's a part of the outcome

Haydenspark, in name
But not quite as easy as it used to be
When time's got hard
Haydenspark

Though it's a world away
It won't be long now
These godlike exponential machines will wake me one day

The moon/sun it seems so precious
Every man living in stasis
Overcrowded good Victorians
Advocating for a cleaner energy

A revelation to start with the upside of:
nNature's a part of the outcome
There is your path
taken apart by secret inconvenient undercover human beings

Take us off
the blame forgot
When the days would turn a week to years
We need time
Take us off
Track Name: Last Broadcast
We're flying in machines
but crying in our sleep
Now falling like a stone
I lost the dial tone

As all must come apart
and I'm a broken heart
No more to be abused
It all just seems too soon

Electrified
Or to not let go
To softly say no
Electrified
Like I'm always lost in snow
Gone

It's time that we depart
This is the last broadcast
A flying solid tube
that fire will subsume

And you must be immune
'cause life ends fairly soon
So I was sacrificed
No warning or advice
Track Name: Gone Too Far
Still waiting I know I'm still here
Still hearing about the future
Revolutionary way
and now I don't even know what they're calling it
Destined to fade into the dark
When your time is up, your time is up
Like when you're saying you're sorry
Your situation is anything but
It's the opposite of
It's a chance to go

Far ahead
With an out-of-control amount of motion
Calling out to all the innocent ahead

Gone too far ahead
we'd be out of control without emotions
Still waiting for the end
This is overhead

And we're not there
We're not fit enough
Not big enough
Taking damage for nothing
Believe it or not
We're already on top
Made of steadier stuff
Maybe ready for nothing
Thinking I was but I froze that thought
I'm frozen up
Instead I take a vacation
Take away 9 from 99
Like a father's child
It's a chance to go

Far ahead
With an out-of-control amount of motion
Calling out to all the innocent ahead

Gone too far ahead
We'd be out of control without emotions
still waiting for the end
This is overhead

Gone too far ahead
Let the meters tell the numbers
Scan the readings
Read your comments
Earn your dollars
Eat it up and drink a lot
Ain't it hard
Waking up
Take your time
You're really dreaming
Only teasing
Don't believe me
All I've done is gone too far
Track Name: 21st Century Schizoid Man
Cat's foot, iron claw
Neuro-surgeons scream for more
At paranoia's poison door
Twenty-first century schizoid man

Blood rack, barbed wire
Politician's funeral pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
Twenty-first century schizoid man

Death seed, blind man's greed
Poets starving, children bleed
Nothing he's got he really needs
Twenty-first century schizoid man
