Track Name: Mammoth
Hold me tight
As I fall asleep
Hold me down
As I try to leap
(Everybody wants to tease me
Everybody wants to free me
Nobody wants to see me
Nobody wants to see me now)

Pass out, you know it's good
Feeling, weaping
I would pass out, you know so well
Under, sunder
How can you tell?

You sell me lies
You tear my eyes
You greet me cold
I'm someone to hold

Touch the sky
Feel the rain in your hands
Never lie
Have it all by yourself
(Everybody wants to tease me
Everybody wants to free me
Nobody wants to see me
Nobody wants to see me now)

Pass out, you know it's good
Feeling, weaping
I would pass out, you know so well
Under, sunder
How can you tell?
Oh baby, hold on please
I could be the one you wish to see
Forever, I will find
The piece that has fallen behind
Track Name: Outbound
Tonight the house is mine
Tomorrow I’ll be fine
Empty, but alive

You know this emptiness inside
Better than anyone else

Funny how you always want me
When you're in need
Funny how you always want me
Lady gotta let you go
And set you free

Set you free

Funny how you always want me
When you're in need
Funny how you always want me
You gotta let me be free

Funny how you always want me
When you're in need
Funny how you always want me
Lady gotta let you go
And set you free
Track Name: Wonderchild
He was a child
With wonder in his eyes
Left it all behind
For a bitter peace in mind
Alright
Facing the unknown alone
Creating a mind of his own

Youth forever

(I don't wanna do
I just wanted to
Breaking out of you
Just because I knew)

It felt so good

With fear for currency
He left home
His mother had no hope
The stars guided him
To a place where no one
Should be
The time was right
But the land was bleak

I wish he knew
The mistake he made

Youth forever

Alone forever
Youth endeavor
Youth forever
Playing, so clever

I wish he knew
The mistake he made

Youth forever

Let me help
To find your home
Please let me
Help to find 'inside'

(I don't wanna do
I just wanted to
Breaking out of you
Just because I knew)
Track Name: The Ascension
The grains of sand
Falling side by side
The echo of a distant time
We wish we had
The inside of a fallen tree
Casting the shadow of ourselves

As spirits we go down
Our path
We walk a thousand miles
With wrath

How we're going to deal
With the devil inside
Devil inside
Howling outside

Tell me how you feel
With the future insight
Future insight
Holding upright

How you're going to heal
If my hands are tied to my bedside
Bad sight

Fade and disappear
Let me tell you about my body
At the lakeside
Come outside

How we're going to deal
With the devil inside
Howling at our precious time
Outside

Let the essence of your soul go out
Let the angels sing for me

As spirits we go down
Our path
We walk a thousand miles
With wrath
I never said to much
About the other times
I've had a sad goodbye
And a last glimpse at the sky
Track Name: Effervescent
Release the hounds at me
I'm more scared than you are
Scared of what comes after peace
The wolves will tear me apart
I'm waiting, I'm shaking
I'm hiding from the gods

You know we go away
Like creatures in the night
So why should we pretend it's all fine?
I never danced alone
I only knew how to sing
I never walked a mile for anything

The only time I feel safe
Is when the sirens go off

You know we go away
Like creatures in the night
So why should we pretend it's all fine?
I never danced alone
I only knew how to sing
I never walked a mile for anything

Beware my mind
I never washed away
Beware my life
I could never go this way
Forever
Track Name: Deleted Scenes
You're touching the eye
I'm covering lies
You're in for a surprise
I'm falling in line
Killing me now
Is my treacherous vow
There's no holding me back
Waiting for your attack

Don't close the door
I want to see
The world outside

I don't want you to remember me
All the time
I just want you to remember me
For a moment

Take back your ring
Take my hunger elsewhere
Take this gun and kill me
Take back all my mistakes

Don't close the window
I need to see
The world outside

I don't want you to remember me
All the time
I just want you to remember me
For a moment

Close your eyes
I was never here
I know I won't let you go
These eyes see
The color red
Please don't mind my empty head
Track Name: Dipsomaniac
I'm crossing
You're crossing
We're crossing
We've made it
We're fading
You're dying
I'm crossing
Track Name: Young Storm
When we grew up we learn to fly
As a kid I pass them by waving goodbye
I pick my shoes so I can learn to tie
I never learned about simplicity
I always flew too high

Gave me a chance to see the rain
But in the comfort of my bed, I'm in pain
The cloud gave me a chance to see it again
But I can only see the blood
That pours out of my veins

Touch the sky
Feel the rain in your hands
Give me up

Touch the sky
Feel the rain in your hands
Never lie
Have it all by yourself
Give me light
Haunting me is your ghost
Distant sounds
Hiding in the dark

Young I am
Track Name: Ravenous
"What did that make you feel?
A little bit uneasy
Any ideas?
Not at all
Anger has a place in all of this
I'm aware of that
I'd like to know how you dealt with it
I abandoned everything and everyone
Stopping it
The only way
Stuff you watch
Stuff you see
Defending yourself
Do you have a plan to attack me?
Yes I do
Why?"

Only one time
Lonely we are
A deal with time
Return to crime
Track Name: Slaves
Are we slaves in heaven?
Should I smile for him?
Should he smile for me?

I run with the wolves
I breathe with the wind
I'm lost

Are we slaves?
Track Name: In Romance
I trust my own kind
I can't say more
Follow the white horse now
I'm the one

Treat me like a creature
And I will fly
Fill me with the poison
And I will lie and die

Better alone
I'm better off alone
I'm better off with myself

Touching the walls
Filling the halls with water
Hunting the monster
The voice makes me stronger
With my servant eyes
No big surprises
With pitchforks and stones
They break more than bones

Better alone
I'm better off alone
I'm better off with myself
All my life I had the sun
By my side
Track Name: The Morning After
"Hello mom, hello dad.
I'm writting this letter to let you guys know,
That it's not your fault.
It's my fault.

I've made some mistakes,
And avoided some more.
I've enjoyed my fair share of pain and sorrow.
More than I could handle.
More than anyone could.

I feel the pressure inside my head.
I can't take it anymore.
Nothing feels right.

By the time you find this letter,
I may be already gone.
I don't know where I'm going
But I hope I'll go to somewhere nice.

All I can think about right now,
Is how much I love both of you.
I'll miss you.

Goodbye."
Track Name: We Are The Echoes
He knew them, a friend
Nothing seemed wrong to him
A pure soul destroyed
Only a void

And if the guilty mind had medicine
Everyone would want to take it
No one would feel any empathy
He chose to touch
We chose not to judge

With the voice of an angel he said
"So pure and innocent
Come a little closer
I'll show you what it is to be human"
With fire in his eyes
No compassion
He pulled the trigger
We heard the echo

He was human
So was I
We choose what we want
Not what we need
Free will
He took the pill

If the guilty mind had medicine
Everyone would want to take it
No one would feel any empathy
He chose to touch
We chose not to judge

We let them roam free at night
We let them see our soul unfold
We let them look into the mirror
We let them be who they want

And if the guilty mind had medicine
Someone would take too much
And if the guilty mind had medicine
No one would hold a grudge
Track Name: Blackout
Silence
Track Name: Sunshine's Over
Time comes for all of us
How long could this last?
The lies you tell to yourself
You never greeted with a cold hand
Don't ask for silence
You'll never hear again
And if they give you a hard time
Just nod your head and go away

Don't ever let them touch you
Don't ever let them see you cry
Don't let them crush your soul
And never suffer in silence

Where will you be
When the sunshine's over?

Your dark desires
Listen to your tune
In the dark there's no moon

Where will you be
When the sunshine's over?
Track Name: Blood Rack
Don't jump into the river
Never swim in sorrow
Don't light the room
We can taste your blood

In shadow we stay
Forever hiding away
(Carry the rock with your name on it)
Should this be the end
We can always be your friend
(Clean your hands on our tears)

We watched you as a child
Sleeping, a somber vibe you had
(Fly through the velvet clouds)
Wrong time to cross
No point should be sharp
(And never look back)
Track Name: The Wrong Path
No one said it was easy
No one said it was fair

How many angels have to cry
For you to see
That you're on the wrong path

It's time to cry
Watch the birds fly
On their own accord

Two birds flying high above the clouds
For a brief moment there was peace
As they flew over a storm
The sky was black

Will you die for me?

How many angels have to cry
For you to see
That you're on the wrong path

It's time to cry
Watch the birds fly
On their own accord
Fishing wishes
For a brighter future
Unexplored
Track Name: Seventh Orchid
Holding your hand I give in
We sail together as the night falls
Red eyes watching over you
Feeling hopeless, we undo

Let me help
To find your home
Please let me
Help to find 'inside'

So fragile and helpless
A trigger happy person
No one to blame, what a shame
What a shame

You helped me through
Let me help you
Track Name: Turn Your Light On
Colored television
Selling lies to me
Fear and insanity
Brings me to my knees
With new clothes
I'm closer to the other side
Faking emotions
Walking with pride

He was me
When I wasn't sure who I was

Turn your light on me
Feeling roses
I found grace through fake lives

I'm spending money
On things that I don't need
I got twelve knives
And a suicidal tendency

I believe in other smiles

Turn your light on me
I know that they gave me some to see
Even though I thought my line had died
Feeling roses
I found grace through fake lives

He was me
When I wasn't sure who I was
Track Name: Razors
You grabbed that kitchen knife
And started cutting yourself
You know how to go down this road
The end for you is just a game
You dance with the devil all the time
Unified with love and death

Forgiveness is what you seek
Redemption is what you need

You grab that bottle of wine
And chug it down like water
Like your problems will go away
Feeling insecure about your future
While you throw it in the ground
Grab a cloth and clean the mess

Forgiveness is what you seek
Redemption is what you need
Compassion is what you yearn
Reaction is what you learn

Define the cause and effect
Pretend that you respect
Define the cause and effect
Defend every aspect

Forgiveness is what you seek
Redemption is what you need
Compassion is what you yearn
Reaction is what you learn
Mutation is what you want
Creation is what you taunt
Track Name: Travelling
Pack your bags and leave
Take what you can and please leave
Pick your shoes
Pick your hats
Pick whatever you have
Pick the brightest t-shirt
And the darkest jacket
Take what is yours
And what is mine
I don't care if you leave the light on
Just be out of here as soon as possible
Grab the nice glass that I know you have
Send me a postcard
When you go to hell
Track Name: Departure
Time
Was too kind to your soul
Fight
To regain your control

Open eyes
Dead by night
Feeling sober
Should be over
Prison skin
Mortal sin
Take my knife
Take my life

Time
Was too kind to your soul
Fight
To regain your control
Track Name: Numbers
By the time we realized
We were getting older
Seasons pass
The pain was on my shoulder

Do you remember
The time we drove away?
Do you have numbers
From every night and day?
Everything we sow
And what we throw away
Remember that night
Never felt afraid again

Hang the map on your wall
So you'll never be lost
Rotting in silence
While dreams go to waste

The fading sun left a mark on us
We will never be the same again

Do you remember
The time we drove away?
Do you have numbers
From every night and day?
Everything we sow
And what we throw away
Remember that night
Never felt afraid again

The fading sun left a mark on us
We will never be the same again
Track Name: Tired Of You
I lost all my faith
That sunlight we choose to bathe
Ask me about the other day
The answer you'd never say

You pray for eternal love
You pray for eternal lust

I'm tired of you
I wish I could repeat myself
But I'm tired of you

Each day we spend layed back
Closer to something really good
We open a hole beneath our feet
Leave my heart as I fall

I pray for eternal life
I pray for eternal peace

Go away
Stay away

I'm tired of you
I wish I could repeat myself
But I'm tired of you

Please leave me alone
Take these noises with you
Grab your coat as you leave
I'm not going to miss you
Track Name: Another Rapture
See the light in your way
People around your grave

Hope, take me
Around your arms
I want to go
Hope, will you take me
For a ride around
Where the moon can glow

I live for today
I live for another day
I'd kill for another day
Track Name: Heart
My dearest one, here's a song
Sing with me
I hope that you can at least understand
It's been too long

I've got some great news to you
I'm in peace
I spend my time thinking
I can wait

We never had the heart to tell
That when we cry, we fly away
And when I go, I want you to see
My smile, and live a day

Two years is a long time for you
To say goodbye
You may think it's not fair to you
It's okay to cry

We never had the heart to tell
That when we cry, we fly away
And when I go, I want you to see
My smile, and live a day
We never had the heart to tell
When we cry, we go
That when we cry, we go home

But I never woke up
Track Name: No Sin
Hunting down things to do
I never noticed your black eyes
It must've slipped through my mind
Like most things do
Just as I thought I had something good
I find darkness around the corner
A blue light making shadows
Of my so-called 'friends'
From my so-called 'life'
No sinners allowed
No beggars allowed

You call me
Cold and bitter
Haunted by myself
You found me
And you allowed me
To be inside you

I still remember that night
When you stole my light
I resist the temptation
To do something wrong
No sinners allowed
No beggars allowed

A storm came cleansing the land
Washing away all my guilt
But I still have my urge to call
For I have sinned
Track Name: Above The Clouds
I'm falling through a spiral
No command and no control
Television screens
Playing parts of my life
Seeing my life
Through someone's eyes
Hope is near me
Or it could be the ground

I came close to stepping out
All the time, all my life
The desolation makes me anxious

Eternity is love
Preaching out for me is all I see
Reality is love
Reaching out for you is all I see

I came close to stepping out
All the time, all my life
The desolation makes me anxious
In my heart I'll always trust
My own game, my own faith
The answer will come soon

The shine on the green marble is fading

I know that no sinners are allowed here
But I just want to be with the ones I love

High above the clouds
A storm came cleansing
Washing away all my guilt
For I have sinned
Apologies won't turn back time
Just as you broke the glass
I'm never coming back
I'm gone

History repeats itself

I'm gone for good
Track Name: Illumination
I'm not going to miss you
Track Name: We Know About You
"I'm free falling
I have no control
I'm free falling
I'm guiding your soul"
Track Name: Evolve
Everything you say sounds so vague
Every word you spoke makes me empty
But I feel your anger
While you drive me to some place that I don't know

But I feel fine
I feel fine
But I'll be fine
I feel divine

Don't ever take his hand
He always lied to you
This time you're in the backseat
Going to your doom
Let him sink this ship
Don't look back

Free from humans
This pain will never end
Free from humans
I hope we get to see dreamland

Let him sink this ship
Don't look back
Track Name: Flood The Nation
Brain of a god
So sick of it
We're coming from
A new open slit
We rise to form
A new kind of pain
They look so feign

Tonight we run
Tonight we are the sun
Tonight we are one
Tonight we hold our guns

Killing everyone on command
Everyone is dying by demand
Killing innocents of the land
Tagging crosses on everyone's hand

Now there's no place to hide
There's no escaping the tide
No one's coming behind
Now you've gotta find a new side

Tonight we are done
Tonight we are gone
Track Name: Echopraxia
Alone we can't be bought
Did they buy?
Did you try?
Welcome dear to the days of lies
Days of life
Jump into the notion
We survive
Can survive
Damn this soul with a hellish eye
You can't be shy
Track Name: Homebound
Homebound
Stick to me
Sick for the glory
Hear it again

Reach the stars
Someone's waiting
The crowd is watching
Waiting for a tragedy
Waiting for me
Can you hear them?

Outbound force, carry the stone
Ignorant to the bliss
No tomorrow to sing about
Gather around your ashes
Smell the burnt flesh
This is your future
Track Name: Mournful Star
"It's a beautiful day in Black Mountain
The sun is shining bright
The kids are playing
There's no chance of raining today
No rain?"

The fire rise to you
With a majestic glory, you arrived
The whitest cloud is hovering above your head
Maybe this is a new beginning
We sure hope so...

Heaven within you

"In this corner we have 'your dreams'
And in the other, 'your desires'
Next fight is going to be against 'love'
This is going to be one hell of a night"

Save yourself
From the one you once loved
Demonize the eternally repelled
Hours has passed and you're still here
Bounded to a chair
He still say he loves you
Why do you believe in his golden eyes?
Track Name: Escharotic
Why?

The pure sense of corruption on his soul
He removed 'kind' from 'mankind'
And washed it all away with acid

He's not a star
He's a family killer

"We're still waiting for any statement
About the disappearance of Diane Gibson and Brian Graves
They were last seen a month ago
And we still have no clue to where they might be
We have a couple of officers searching around the park
We're beginning to hypothesize the possibility of a homicide"

Who should you believe in?

He's not a star
He's a family killer
Track Name: The Gathering
Take the sea as it is yours
Flashing lights on the new horizon
Swim in agony as his soul floats
The surface is a carcass in catharsis

All we are is dust
All we are is just a face

Devotionless you might fight
Frictionless you might cry
You are my child, come to me
The gathering is waiting for you
The understanding is within us
You don't remember being sad
Track Name: Alone With Colors
I sit alone in this room
I see the white tiles in bloom
I breathe in name of salvation
Salvation, no nation
Release the angels I keep
You'll live to see another leap
Who dares to be courageous?
Courageous, contain us

On my way downtown
All I see is the crowd
On your way out of town
All you see is me
Padded walls all around me
My body falls down to the ground
Hanging on to an illusion
I am alone with colors

I had my scar stolen
I had the chance to be free
I can't control who I am
Control, my own soul

(Reset)

Tearing off my own flesh
They told me it was fun
They lied to me, but I can't stop
I can't stop, I won't stop

On my way downtown
All I see is the crown
On your way out of town
All you see is me
I have my own set of friends
And I know I can count on them
To make me feel complete again

Now I am alone with colors tonight
Now I feel alive with colors that fade

On my way downtown, I lie
On your way out of town, you die
Track Name: Blue Rose
The creatures at night reminding of peace
Protecting each other as the common way
Humans are cruel to each other no matter what
Passing by doors and closing them shut

We are exposed to harm from the day we're born

Ooh, ooh, watch me dance alone
While you're set in stone
Watch me dance alone
And the king sits in his throne

While you're awake, I think about you
Decision to face, another break
You fake and I take
You bite while I write

The blue rose on top of a casket

Ooh, ooh, watch me dance alone
While you're set in stone
Watch me dance alone
And the king sits in his throne
Watch me dance alone

Watch me as I connect to your universe
I'm eager to learn your place in all of this
Go away to somewhere else
You seem fine without me
Faces shifting while you're in pain
Even after all this time
Track Name: Shining One
Are you scared of who we are?
Do you mind if we turn the light on?
Care to join us on this journey?
Do we have to know the time?

Even in your darkest night
You still believed in me
Even in the cold design
You found peace
Even in the heart of light
You're not blind
Even after all this time
I care about you

Your body is old
But your mind is so young
So pure, so delicate
I'm sorry

Soon you will be
Right next to me
Don't worry my child
We will take care of you

Even in your darkest night
You still believed in me
Even in the cold design
You found peace
Even in the heart of light
You're not blind
Even after all this time
I care about you
Track Name: Resolutions
It was the night
That she always feared
Closing in to a dead halt
He made his mind
The end is set
It will never be your fault

When the time comes
Don't sell your soul
When the offer is high
Never sell your soul

Fight the confusion and contemplate
Breathe for just a second before dawn

When the time comes
Don't sell your soul
When the offer is high
Never sell your soul

He only had one bullet
For both of them

And at that moment
She felt so alone
Abandoned by her angel
Look behind these walls
He pulled the trigger
Bounded with her
And at the last second
She had a vision
And that vision was

It was a girl
With wonder in her eyes
Taken from mankind
For a selfish peace in mind
Wearing white
Facing the harmony alone
Creating a memory of her own

Youth forever

I don't wanna do
I just wanted to
Breaking out of you
Just because I knew

She was smiling

Smile
Track Name: On The Outside
We sleep
We dream
So we can't scream

Who we are
Who we need to be
Track Name: Young Storm (A.A.E. Version)
When we grew up we learn to fly
As a kid I pass them by waving goodbye
I pick my shoes so I can learn to tie
I never learned about simplicity
I always flew too high

Gave me a chance to see the rain
But in the comfort of my bed, I'm in pain
The cloud gave me a chance to see it again
But I can only see the blood
That pours out of my veins

Touch the sky
Feel the rain in your hands
Give me up

Touch the sky
Feel the rain in your hands
Never lie
Have it all by yourself
Give me light
Haunting me is your ghost
Distant sounds
Hiding in the dark

Young I am
Track Name: Wonderchild (Short Piano)
He was a child
With wonder in his eyes
Left it all behind
For a bitter peace in mind
Alright
Facing the unknown alone
Creating a mind of his own

Youth forever

(I don't wanna do
I just wanted to
Breaking out of you
Just because I knew)

It felt so good

With fear for currency
He left home
His mother had no hope
The stars guided him
To a place where no one
Should be
The time was right
But the land was bleak

I wish he knew
The mistake he made

Youth forever
