Track Name: Sinøbvious
When you walk away
You don't know what you take
Sit and sharpen the blade
Lay down in the garden and play

I've seen it all come and go
But it seems to have
The same taste
The same lies
A different vision
The same look in their eye

I look directly in the face of faith
Shrouded in superstition
Slinging shuriken slices skin
Clouds rain down
Thousand of years tradition

God (less) let's be honest
Promised sacrilege
Magic tricks
Beyond this
Collective consciousness

Interpret what you will
Never fully understand
Inhaling second-hand smoke
Fortunate that we can
Fortunate that we can

The sequence sixteen secrets
Reincarnate spirits
Necromancers dance
Upon a bed of blades
Ancestors whisper escape
Track Name: Cave Paintings
The wind drifts
Pulls me gently
Out my fingertips
And swiftly lifts my spirit
A slight change of appearance

It was something I didn't realize
Until I was flying at roughly 10,000 feet above the sea
Aware, yet can't see

-

Sometimes I watch the smoke rise over the horizon
Intertwine with the stars alignment
To escape through narration

Seeking to ink the imagery immaculate
Drink the past infatuations
Sink into imagination

We absorb and reflect
Distort to see in-depth
Abhor what we reject
Collected into the core of our very being

Our anger is our affection
Inevitable danger heads our direction
If we choose not to believe in ourself
It proves we can't truly believe in anything else

-

Easily seduced by the excuses
(The truth is written on the walls)
If we chose to stop the improvements
(All we've built will dissolve)

If only you could see eye-to-eye with your mind's entropy
But time is fading, fleeting, narrow, vacant

-

It's what you make

It cuts deep and engraves its namesake
As a keepsake, as a part of heart ache
Take the mistakes

Awaken from the illusion we partake in, confusion
Break free from temptation, in an attempt at concentration

Crept through the connections
Introspection to check the intentions

Paint the portrayal
Of a zero day old fable
Based in bloody betrayal
Chased the culprit but he bailed
Hence what the rest of the story entails
Gets morbid as hell
Before most forfeit
I foretell and bid farewell

Did no one inform you of the storm that swarms through?
If we chase it we could be there by morning
Forging blades, coloring caves

Numbering days, growing number with age
Uncovering the suffering and wondering how
We could change, adapt

A momentary lapse of Eden
A monument of the consequence
Of the lost cause conceivement
Track Name: Rise
When all is forsaken
Awaiting the vacant
Call of the raven
Only then will we awaken
Strengthen the signal, station

They say the end symbolizes reincarnation
Take the time to realize our life's disguised
By a veil of complacence

If only it were all that simple...
To break the divide
Combine countless sides in the middle
With diligent deliverance

Significance, it's in the details
The instance you become one with the moment - prevail (pre-veil)

Through the torment
More foresight
Wondering what's in store tonight
Taken under the wings of the wind
Underling struggling within the

Contradiction, a running metaphor
Don't let the wisdom hide behind the double-door

Interested, forget it's a threat to previous investment
With devious intention
Relentless greed
(Self)-Centered around ineffective
Elected you'd believe if you pretend a genius said it

A hypothetical heretical spectacle
Technically integrated integrity
Definitely taking over the territory

The story format for that - special effect
Protect the temple - gentle

~ Devil's perfect the art of vengeance
Inside the hearts of those who let them
While the sunburned children
Unwilling to relieve, naive and stubborn ~

-

Are you yet intrigued?
Have you found the answers you seek
Secrets reveal no truth

-

"He heard whispers in the wind that no one else could hear but him"

I've seen the weight of the world caving in
"{subconscious voices}"

"He saw her in a dream all dressed in white, it made it seem like she was
Somewhere, not there, but somewhere - saying"

The current state of our dearly beloved // Blood has flooded
Clearly disgusted // They just do as instructed
Corrupted easily // Filled with nothing
Instill the fear // Replaced hastily
Blanketed by fake decency

-

"The rocking chair sways back in the day air"

-

"I do not see the things you see - I see no signs in my tea leaves"
What do you see? What do you believe?
^Is it all what's meant to be?^
Bleeding, instinct, sinking
Deep end, gone
Madness

What do you see?
Is it all what's meant to be?
What do you believe?
Bleeding, instinct, sinking

Track Name: Transcendence
(Open the gateway)

Transcending the unimaginable
Transcending the unimaginable

Come into contact with the abstract truth
Extract the active ingredients
Discard distractions, disobedience
The metaphysical sequence
Spiritual evidence
I've been restless ever since
I've discovered the density of destiny
Unseen and obscene elapse to catastrophe
Thirteen when the dreams began to help me forsee
Infinite affinity, harmonized angels - tranquility
Karma's eyes trace movement lucid at every angle
Fabled melody introduces the fatal angel
Truth sings strangled, heartstrings entangled
Laced idiosyncratic straight-jacket stereo static

Immaculate fade to blackness
Balancing half-way in the shade - inadequate
Melting in the sun's rays by one (raised by one)
Wondering when will I be dazed (day's) and (end) done
Remember vitalities embers survived
And we have only begun
Transmissions, decisions, premonitions
Envisioning the composition
Calm, bomb the system
Collisions, opinions rippling ambitions
A strange change of intuition
Spawned the dawn of

Conviction - another deranged addiction

Conviction - another deranged addiction
Metacognition - walking the distance

Track Name: Spaceship
A distant form of lost origin
Consuming the oxygen
Fueled intoxicants
Slaughter incompetence
Raise monitors

They're so regrettable *illegible ;)* edible
They're so incredible: Humans
Why must I trust they'll lead themselves to ruin
It's moving

Infusion as a Lucid Interlude into you
Incomprehensible: light-years reverberation
Transmission - interpretation

Interpretation and inspiration
Seeds planet - seven monster
Breath panic. Watch them run
Like ants - Dance to take that chance

Towards advancement, unity
To become what you can't foresee

These enhancements tuning thee
To control the way you see

Detest the mess of false ecstasy
Default acceptance, sliced sections
Condescendence :: Humanity

Can it be? Steady calamity
Stand to be

The study of a familiar sense
Sounds, projections, silhouettes

Thus captured in a moment
Of twisted neuron enrollment
Toke it, evoke it

Awoke from silence, cursed - unspoken
A reign of tyrants - stained mindless
Blamed for the same reason
The evening sky left you dreaming

Dreaming, discerning
Seizing and turning - burning
Wishing it was evident as the evidence
Of all evidence of the developments

Observation of mass exodus
Telepathic manipulation
To burning the messages
Disturbing the way they
Lust for life

Steady clutch on the mic
Subconscious thrust
Words push thoughts together
Change weather - morph perception
Earthling infesting all sections, nesting
Spreading, wasting life and forgetting..

What's soon to be nothing left
A concept too complex to evaluate
Devastation and doom we demonstrate

Regenerate the knowledge elevates
Contaminates, emptier spaces, vacant t o o s p a c i o u s

Exploring
(the) Places
(in search of) Faith
(but it's) Tainted
(and they're all) Faceless

Taken
Spaceship
Track Name: The Escape
Awakening from this illusion refreshed
I found I've second guessed my surroundings
Thoughts traveling past light speed - dumbfounded

I've seen this in a dream before
I even remember the same sounds

My mind is clearing
Now I'm beginning to
Peace - together
(Location unknown)

Situation inspiration
Adjacent to jaded
Figuring out my actual placement
And the duration I was sedated

Flawed, white washed
The cause, blacklisted
Mischief, twisted physics
Conflicting within
A double-helix
This sudden subtle feeling

Arose (a rose)
Decompose
Disappearing
Growth
The cycle
Spirals out of control

The title's the goal
A violent yet vital role

Radiant of an ancient and primal soul
Crushing imagery of the idols
And burning the trinity for coal

Projecting black holes
There's no windows to see
Frozen, silent, invisible, void
Like living in black holes
Floating at zero gravity
Alien alchemy
Exposed conspiracy

All of a sudden a creature appeared in front of me
Unleashed the searing sun from the center of my souls ember
Temperature inclining - temporarily unwinding chromosomes
Reconstructing my genome
The spectrum formed an emblem
Spiraled and reconnect them

Venomous is the smile
Vile of the wretched
Versatile and perilous

Sterile is the reptiles reply
Underlying he's just a minion
Of the one who makes the decision

It all equates through the symptom
Mission escape the condition
Circumnavigated the love-hatred interrelated

Asphyxiated // execute the vanishing act
Nailed to the cross // Claustrophobic
Which of you are the chosen?

Restraints broken
Confined to freedom
I am the source
Metamorphosis
Forced through a portal

Reaching a core a door (corridor) opened
Unveiling a voice which echoed throughout
What seemed the entire galaxy

You can spend your whole life running - for nothing
(There's no escape from yourself)
You could spend your whole life searching - it's worthless
(There's no escape from yourself)
You could spend your whole life trying - dying - forever defiant
(There's no escape from your self)
Track Name: Total Soul Auræclipse
The World's collective conscience caves in
At a single moment - separate components
Emotions vary in potency

Until we experience all frequencies
Experimenting with entropy
Expanding energy

No, understanding ain't everything - unsettling
Security breach the faculties of your being
Seeking reason throughout the evening
Sinking further from believing
Blur the allure for if you prefer to be cured I concur

And conquer - ponder the purity
Wander the worth of free
Animosity animated duality
Of animals and the intangible
Fantasy, curiosity

Only shifts in gravity could disturb the velocity
Of the reoccurring prophecy
Predict the conflict
Situation confrontational
Crushing the Earth to 8 bits
Eclipsed in the shadows of the Spaceship
Transfixed by a hollow tomorrow
Which doesn't exist

Zero sorrow
Finding myself slipping into
The sound of silence
A feeling that's timeless

Realizing myself wishing I knew
The way around my mind
It's healing that blindness

-

Hell bent on reinventing the present
We can prevent the events never cemented
Pressure collected, released
The oppressors content with the measure
And the spread of the disease
Settling for lesser will be the end of me
Bending dreams

Follow the stream
Swallowing screams
Apollo in Thebes
Fatigued yet I proceed
To rock a halo in

Hell bent on reinventing the present
We can prevent the events never cemented
Pressure collected, released

-

Forever

Eternity - perfectly absurdity
Searching for harmony - internally

Learning the artistreconsctructing philsopohy
With hopes to fill the empty-nest(led) the smoke within the chest

A vessel for various angels and devils
Our whole existence is special
The soul mysterious
Focus, you'll soon take notice

The black holes pull and consume
Resume the drum rhythm
In tune with the blooming transmissions

Ammunition striking the media with meteors
They're needy whores
Unforgiven the sunlight
Igniting graffiti wars

The same love at a different cause
It's not your name
It's the changes you've made
And what you've lost

Through many phases I've witnessed the gain
Put no restraints on my patience
No complaints - sustain the natural beauty

Sometimes it's actually spooky
Therein lies the collateral
Circumstances seem irrational?
Remain practical, adaptable

-

Hell bent on reinventing the present
We can prevent the events never cemented
Pressure collected, released
The oppressors content with the measure
And the spread of the disease
Settling for lesser will be the end of me
Bending dreams

Follow the stream
Swallowing screams
Apollo in Thebes
Fatigued yet I proceed
To rock a halo in

Hell bent on reinventing the present
We can prevent the events never cemented
Pressure collected, released

Forever
Track Name: Closed Circuit
Innocence
In a sense
It's the ignorance
We're limitless

With too much potential
To live like this
Don't give them an inch

You can have my seat
I wasn't that comfortable anyway

Refused, eclipsed by the light of truth
A prototype of the movement

Meant more to me than...

Dancing devious throughout the night
We'll warp the path of destiny
And in this fight now to break free
Flashback how we became

Creatures of light
Creatures of light
Creature of light
Creatures of light

Stitched up
Pretty puppet
Pull those strings up
Don't get it mixed up
What you want you've got to give up

Track Name: Curmudgeons of Mayhem
The effects are random
Unknown phantoms
Plant the probability
Resurrected relativity
Define your own destiny

Directed me toward you
Entered the current
Covered in colors
Aura leaking
As I breath in
Pandora

Subtly speaking
Without a word
Yet your sure
It was heard

Blurred by the obscurity
A moment melting away
Eternity

The effects are random
Unknown phantoms
Plant the probability
Resurrected relativity
Make up your own meaning

Wake up a drone
Dreams are fleeting
Foreseen is a glimpse
Rinsed soon after consciousness hits
Before the end of the bottomless pit

I could have swore I watched the wonder soar
Roaring thunder poured restored a number
Null and void out by that hunter

The effects are random
Unknown phantoms
Plant the probability
Resurrected relativity
Evolve your own equation

Then zone and solve with patience
The tones stationed in the bones shape-shift
Lifted from landscape - drifting
Headphone spaceship

Cyclone - psyche stoned
Psychedelic sights of velvet
Vicious, lick the blade
Superstitious

The effects are random
Unknown phantoms
Plant the probability
Resurrected relativity
Address your own death

Caressed by the blessed balance
Slow, remove the blindfold
The proof was valid
Look back to youth
Shook - spellbound

Hellhounds circling the mortal realm in the cerebellum
Walking skeleton, dwelling in the catacombs
Here to welcome you home

Smudge the paintings
Curmudgeons of Mayhem

We possess the means to progress the sanctum
Therefore all odds are irrelevant

The effects are random
Unknown phantoms
Plant the probability
Resurrected relativity
Pursue your own...
