Track Name: Sea of Pain
The seed of life will end,
This road that leads nowhere;
The world begins
Evolution once again;

Time is lost, annihilated
A fear you can’t forget;
The wolves returning;

I can’t explain the sea of pain,
Above all, there are things with the sense of faith

If you really, really want
To save us
Wipe the tears, from your face
And see the painful truth

Time is lost, consecrated
A fear you can’t forget;
The wolves returning;

I can’t explain the sea of pain,
Above all, there are things with the sense of faith

Run to the edge, the clock is ticking,
Don’t be afraid
Track Name: Grace & Infinity
I try to escape my emotions
For I witness my final fate;
I face the truth before me
And I refuse to see…

You’re my darkest angel… deep within…
Just trying to clip my wings
Just trying to be free, just trying to be me…

Voices that echo in my mind
Just keep trying to push me away;
The things that raised me above you
Are now leading me astray

I can’t see clear ahead, deep within…
I believed the things you said,
A taste of reality, for grace and infinity…

Is this the only way for us?
Are you afraid of what might come?
Of what might come?

For grace & infinity…
Track Name: Defying My World
In these seas of ruin,
I cry out to your God,
In search of an answer;

The sun keeps burning up my eyes,
Fulfilling me with the will,
Defying my world;

My dying swan, fly me in your wings…
My dying swan…

Drowned in my own words,
Please sear my heart,
From threats of mankind;

Reunite me with myself,
Show me the safest path,
Back into my reality;

My dying swan, fly me in your wings…
My dying swan…
Track Name: Schizo-Psycho-Phernia
Sometimes I crave feelings in my head,
Sometimes I see my life behind a shred,
I am my only enemy,
Hate everything about me,
I’ve been torn & raped,
Loved & hated by your side…

I am what you don’t care to see,
I’ll be what you want me to be,
Inside this twisted mind,
There’s nothing left of me inside,
I cursed my anger and hate,
Why can’t I make my own fate?
I’ve been torn & raped,
Loved & hated by your side…

Sometimes I make excuses for your mistakes,
Sometimes I wish to burn in Hell’s lake,
I can’t get up and be strong,
And I can’t wait here no more
I’ve been torn & raped,
Loved & hated by your side…
Track Name: Beneath The Sin
This crazy world is smaller than what I had in mind;
An end to all my sorrows;
I know that I won't find this wall that brings me down,
Comes back again, goes round and round…

(It) keeps me blind…

I can’t show you right now the Hell where I have been
You’re my piece of Heaven caught beneath the sin
I won't ever feel again,
This emptiness, the endless pain;

(It) keeps me blind…

I'll drown in my own fears,
Of time passing bye;
I’ll protect the memories,
I’ll meet you on the other side.
Track Name: Everything's Broken
Lonely, sitting upon a bench,
Flying much too fast;
Time is waving around me,
Trembling my past;

I’m not there to witness it,
And everything is so much better now
There’s nothing left for me to save
All hell was broken, but your… vow;

Sun’s burning me down,
Blowing up my head;
Love is dying on my veins,
Seeming so unfair;

I’m not there to witness it
And everything is so much better now
There’s nothing left for me to save
All hell was broken, but your...
Track Name: Shattered Trust
I was feeling helpless,
Trying to escape the pain
I was feeling so lonely
With you once again

But now I know what to expect from you
But now I grieve for you’re gone
I’m shattered…

I’ll keep on standing
Like I’ve always did
I’ll keep on searching
Afraid to recede

But now I know what to expect from you
But now I grieve for you’re gone
Trust, shattered…
Track Name: Transience
Every life has its steps, that we all need to take;
From the innocence of a child, until the day we fade...

Every day is the same,
Who is left, for me to blame?

Future lies upon our path, destiny lays in our hands;
You see today as yesterday, for tomorrow that never comes;
In the end, there’s just one way, built by your own decisions;
No strings left to guide us… life’s but a losing game;

Every day is the same,
Who is left, for me to blame?

I’ve tried to forget you,
Haven’t you understood?
You bring me down,
I stand my ground,
Dead to the world we face...

Just take your brightest day, maybe there is no tomorrow;
The transience of time that makes us feel no sorrow;

Every day is the same,
Who is left, for me to blame?

I’ve tried to forget you,
Haven’t you understood?
You bring me down,
I stand my ground,
Dead to the world we face...
Track Name: Sleepless In Secrecy
“Abashed the Devil stood, and felt how awful goodness is, and saw virtue in her shape how lovely, saw, and pined his loss; but chiefly to find here observed, his lustre visibly impaired”

I rest, but the rest of me is breathing...
I prey, but the pray in me is hunting...

Calling all dreams, I’ll no longer be afraid.
Sleepless, silently, surely will be my decay,
And I will always wonder alone...

I grieve, but the grief in me is gone.
You better kill me
I don’t know.
I don’t know where I’m going.
Don’t want to be like this.

Calling all dreams, I’ll no longer be afraid.
Sleepless, silently, surely will be my decay,
And I will always wonder alone...
Always wonder alone...

There is no place for you to hide,
Nowhere else to go;
I wish you better step aside,
Better keep it low...

Calling all dreams, I’ll no longer be afraid.
Sleepless, silently, surely will be my decay,
And I will always wonder alone...
Always wonder alone...

* - “Paradise Lost: Book IV”, John Milton
Track Name: Face To Face
I miss the times we laughed,
Never worried, the hours passed,
We believed, no regrets, time would just stand still;
All is lost, forever…

Now I can see,
Life fading away…

We all took our separate ways,
Can’t stand to be face to face;
But we tried to pretend that it’s all the same;
All is gone, forever…

Now I can see,
Life fading away…

All the masks will disappear,
We will never be this near…

Now I can see,
Life fading away…
Track Name: Black Over Gold
