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: Time Can Stay
Lead me through to emptiness
Hear me now I take my final breath
All in all I'm quite amused
Petrified but in a happy mood

Rest assured it's still alive
Through the lives it left behind and locked inside
Though it's cold and lonely now
In a while the sun won't have a chance to hide
No more

You caught me in a hole again
Compensate the difference and descend
Lift me up I'll start again
Even though I know I'm still the same

I confess I haven't been so sincere
I've been lost and I've lived in fear
All the times that I was given a choice
No I would not hear no ones advice
Despite I knew the price

Crazily I thought there was another way
All the paths seemed to lead away
Now it's over there is nothing to say
Just leave it blank and call it a day
Despite I knew the price

A lucid dream of silent skies
is all that's needed for a beginning
A wretched lie or is it truth instead?
Reason fails to answer this
Lead me out of it or leave me in
'till the sun is dead and only dark remains

Still it's more than I understand
But I can't admit defeat 'till time is gone
Time can heal a wound or take away
Everything depends on time ticking away

Time can stay
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: A Method...
I really shouldn't feel bad after all
So I'll keep on smiling
At least I never lied to get along
We're still fine so I hold on

When driving through the dark is all we know
Oh headlights please guide me home
But home is just a dark and empty room
Why try at all?

It seems to me that dreams are all we own
Now that we're older
I can't believe the time where has it gone
When was our moment?

Time couldn't even pause or stop or rewind
So I close my eyes and sleep
Sleep through a day or two and find
Another reason why I never knew quite where I failed

To see in front of me
Suddenly I'm blinded by the sun
Infinity laughs at me
How can I breath
I'm blinded by the sun
A million possibilities, never me
I'm blinded by the sun
Borderlines of sanity and reality
What have we become?
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: A Captain on the Shore
Meet me far far away
On a dark island
How did we go astray?
Where were we taken?

To be lost in
To be caught up and found
Inside I am
Mortified and safe in isolation
Inside I am

Yes it's you who lost and left me
And it's true I'm past being lonely
Coming through from the outside
It's nothing new there's no escape route
'Till finally the curtain calls
And we're not here after all
Lay me down

Lay me down in the shade
Silence invited
Seems that we meet again
My quiet friend

So far divided
Our bodies have caged us in
Inside I am
taken hostage
Physics have me restrained
Inside I am

Even clouds fly away
Even dark shadows fade
Seek and you'll find again
Reach out and grasp it

Stay connected
Tomorrow can change us all
Inside I am
unaffected
Defiantly standing tall
Inside I am

Yes it's you who lost and left me
And it's true I'm past being lonely
Coming through from the outside
It's nothing new there's no escape route

So, finally I'm over board
A captain on the shore
Reaching for the floor
The writings on the wall
Find yourself alone
Arrive where you belong
To one and each their own
We're not here after all
Track Name: Entropy
These days offer nothing for me
I'm settled in my ways
Keep wasting away,
erasing all evidence of change
'Till these days turn to silence
Close the door
Fade to insignificance
For if we tried less to resist
to preserve these days

Despite all the trying entropy increases still
Still everything seems to keep functioning
So why all the fighting, if indeed no one wins?
Since everything leads to more disorder
Entropy

This road seems to keep on winding
leading us astray
No future, no destination
Uncertainty will make this world
one day turn to violence, turn to war
until all that was before
Is divided
'till we are torn
'till we are no more

Despite all the trying entropy increases still
Still everything seems to keep functioning
So why all the fighting, if indeed no one wins?
Since everything leads to more disorder
Entropy
Track Name: Dawn
blinded by the vision of power i was
until i defected
until you see what you have become
you wont know youre infected
you can keep on running but
you aint getting away
keep on scratching but the
itch it wont go
is it a matter of time?
no, its a matter of faith
the signs are clear
but they match in direction

breaking thru a barrier none can see
the poison is injected
into your veins please leave me be,
youre in its grip
hey now
you know that the end is near, yes
and the thought of going
is ever present in your head
and you think they are out to own you
its over the horizon
hey now

so if you want to
break me up until im down
no i wont be there
wake me up when i am gone
no i wont be there
night until dawn but
the night is still young
(like your face (?))

A crisis is about to unfold,
tonight im gonna prove it
Alleviate the cold and then let it be,
go find another fool yo
Hey now
you spell another problem
for this human being,
Set another date for the end of reality.
And how can some people say life is free?
and how can they give it away?
Why wont anyone tell me?

so if you want to
break me up until im down
no i wont be there
wake me up when i am gone
no i wont be there
night until dawn
but the night is still young
(like your face (?))

oh how the time was spent
and what it all had meant
do you cast away
do you block it out
beyond any doubt
would vanity and convenience
conspire to lose it all
what abomination leaves the body
but devours the soul?

everything under the sun is burning up
come hear the call come turn it up
then say the end is near enough
one day the sky shall open up
and rain will wash the unholy town
now heed the "warning : ending" now
'tis the last illusion to ever fall
you're not listening so if you want to

break me up until im down
no i wont be there
wake me up when i am gone
no i wont be there
night until dawn
but the night is still young

warning its ending
tomorrow its so real
more love descending
the morning is surreal
