Track Name: On My Own
"On My Own"

A new taste shall commence when you transpose
Intending to... begin
Giving In
To those who've passed before and died upholding
A faith
For more
Inside they've tore

Just keep my mind burning strong
Into the gaping, emptiness I'll go
On my own

This place disgracefully tied to perversions I'd much
Rather... leave
Behind
Or set aside
The honor brought by those has faded slowly
On... its way
To now
As if it were in vain

Just keep my mind burning strong
Into the gaping emptiness I'll go
On my own
Track Name: The Eyes of Tomorrow
"The Eyes Of Tomorrow"

[Intro:]
Here I stand,
Tranquilized.
In this little white room,
Of mine.
There I go,
On my own,
In this redifined world,
Of tide.

[Verse 1:]
So why do you take this,
Conquer and dismay this,
Peaceful sanity of mine?
Your attempting bore me,
Shatter and destroy me.
It's worthless,
It fuels my gain.
Maybe we're all insane?

[Verse 2:]
There you stand,
Ignorantly.
Just a monotone pallet,
You see.
If there was a color,
Created for me,
It consists in shades of three.
I see you enjoy this,
While I exploit this,
Brief insanity of mine.
Perceive and understand you,
Is far more than I can do.
Perceptions left far behind.

[Chorus:]
Maybe we're all insane.
The way that we live,
Reminiscing over head games
What if we're all insane?
I'm feeling so damn hollow,
Staring into the eyes of tomorrow.

[Verse 3:]
Coming around again,
I'm feeling much better my friend.
The doctor says,
I'm sorry you must attend,
To your little white room again.
To my little white room...
Track Name: The Scar
"The Scar"

[Verse 1:]
Illiteracy,
For those who can't see,
The gates that untie avid arrogance.
Your ground felt so farm,
I short handed myself.
Never again,
Will I give in.

[Pre-Chorus 1:]
Right into hate,
Right into lies.
Right back where we've been before,
A privilage no more.
Now that we've lost-

[Chorus:]
The scar,
Buried within man-kind.
The will that defines all of right from wrong,
Now fight,
Unless you're willing to die.
Only the obvious state this.

[Verse 2:]
Struck with the punishment,
That would last for an age.
Finally,
It's all black and white.
Much more simple to answer.

[Pre-Chorus 2:]
Heroes will rise,
Enemies fall.
Right back where they've been before,
A privilaged regained.
A gift that you own.

[Chorus:]
The scar,
Buried within man-kind.
The will that defines all of right from wrong,
Now fight,
Unless you're willing to die.
Only the obvious state this.

[Verse 3:]
Pay no more mind,
To the agony from the burn.
Let yourself cimb,
To a height never reached before.
Open to find,
A path to the pure inside.
Now is the time.

[Revised Chorus:]
The scar,
(The scar.)
Buried within man-kind.
The will that defines all of right from wrong,
Now fight,
Unless you're willing to die.
Only the obvious state;
The scar,
(The scar.)
Buried within man-kind.
The will that defines all of right from wrong,
Now fight,
Unless you're willing to die.
Only the obvious state;
The scar
Track Name: Unfolding Time
"Unfolding Time"

[Verse 1:]
This is the moment,
I have been waiting for.
Obscured,
Distorded,
And left to explore.
In a world of tragedy,
In search for release,
So I may leave.

[Pre-Chorus:]
My whole life,
I've been prying inside.
But all this time,
The answers appeared in,
My whole life.
Inhaling frame after frame,
All this time,
I've been waiting.

[Chorus:]
To find a way to reach inside,
To wield the hands,
Unfolding time.
The higher I am,
The better view I find.
As I lay down,
Observe it all,
Unwind.
No doubt or fear,
My view is now clear.

[Verse 2:]
I've never felt so alive,
Looking in from the outside.
And watching whold life pass me by,
Through the descendents of my eye.

[Pre-Chorus:]
My whole life,
I've been prying inside.
But all this time,
The answers appeared in,
My whole life.
Inhaling frame after frame,
All this time,
I've been waiting.

[Chorus:]
To find a way to reach inside,
To wield the hands,
Unfolding time.
The higher I am,
The better view I find.
As I lay down,
Observe it all,
Unwind.
No doubt or fear,
My view is now clear.

(So clear.)

[Chorus:]
To find a way to reach inside,
To wield the hands,
Unfolding time.
The higher I am,
The better view I find.
As I lay down,
Observe it all,
Unwind.
No doubt or fear,
My view is now clear.
Track Name: Beautiful Girl
"Beautiful Girl"

[Verse 1:]
Woke today,
Another memory passes of you.
Shades of gray,
From those three broken words,
That unfold the truth,
But-

[Pre-Chorus:]
I'll never forget those eyes,
That beautiful smile.
I still remember,
The way you said goodbye.
No matter how hard I try,
I can't forget about-

[Chorus:]
Beautiful girl,
On top of the world.
Don't fall down,
Because an angel,
Should never touch ground.

[Verse 2:]
Last embrace,
Forcing you away,
Before it's too late.
I end this day,
In a most bitter way.
A regretful state,
But-

[Pre-Chorus:]
I'll never forget those eyes,
That beautiful smile.
I still remember,
The way you said goodbye.
No matter how hard I try,
I can't forget about-

[Chorus:]
Beautiful girl,
On top of the world.
Don't fall down,
Because an angel,
Should never touch ground.

[Verse 3:]
Here I lay,
I drift away.
You come in,
And lay beside me.
It's got to be,
A memory that feels so real,
But just beyond me.
Mesmerized,
In you I find what I had,
Was unrealized.
But emptiness settles in,
As I awake.

[Revised Chorus:]
Beautiful girl,
On top of the world.
Don't fall down,
Because an angel,
Should never;
Beautiful girl,
(Beautiful girl.)
On top of the world,
Don't fall down,
Because an angel,
Should never touch ground.

[Revised Pre-Chorus:]
I'll never forget those eyes,
That beautiful smile.
I still remember,
The way you said goodbye.
No matter how hard I try,
I can't forget about...
Track Name: Where Butterflies Never Die
"Where Butterflies Never Die"

[Chorus:]
Float on
To the painted sky
Where dreams will be unified,
As I
Slip inside.

[Verse 1:]
Multiply humanity,
Harmonize insanity.
Shedding light of remedy,
Pulling tides of clarity.
Shattered glass,
In flower beds.
Humanize,
Inhuman ends.

[Pre-chorus:]
It's all the same for the dreamers,
It's all the same for us.

[Chorus:]
Float on
To the painted sky
Where dreams will be unified.
As I'm swept inside,
Where butterflies—

[Verse 2:]
Utilize surrendering,
When silence falls,
To you it sings.
Sterilize your mentality,
Compromise your reality.
Restful mind
And peaceful eyes.
When sound is gone,
Then you will find—

[Pre-chorus:]
It's all the same for the dreamers,
It's all the same for us, for us.

[Revised chorus:]
Float on
To the painted sky
Where dreams will be unified,
As I'm swept inside.
Hold on
To the painted sky
Where we will be unified,
As I stand inside.

[Outro:]
Where butterflies
Never die.
(We'll never die.)
Where butterflies
Never Die...
Track Name: broken Inside
"Broken Inside"

[Intro:]
Until the end of me,
You'll be the death of me.
I dare you to cross the line again,
Cause deep down inside,
There's something that waits to be-

[Verse 1:]
Broken Inside,
Feeling alive.
Forced to defy,
Who casts me aside.
I'm waiting to be,
Broken Inside,
Losing my mind.
Gasping for life,
Crashing through tides.
That drive me to find,
The darkness behind,
Will never run dry.
But all still stand.

[Chorus:]
Until the end of me,
(I swear.)
You'll be the death of me.
(I dare.)
I dare you to cross the line again,
Because deep down inside,
There's something that waits to be;
Cross the line again.
Because deep down inside,
There's something that waits to be broken.

[Verse 2:]
The thinning line between,
You and my sanity,
Is quickly fading.
Takes just a breeze to cause a storm,
The thinning line between,
You and my sanity,
Is quickly fading.
Takes just a breeze to cause a storm,
Takes just a breath to cause a scream,
It takes me to cause a tragedy.

[Chorus:]
Until the end of me,
(I swear.)
You'll be the death of me.
(I dare.)
I dare you to cross the line again,
Because deep down inside,
There's something that waits to be;
Cross the line again.
Because deep down inside,
There's something that waits to be broken inside.
Track Name: The Ripple
"The Ripple"

[Verse 1:]
Strike with the strongest hand,
Search from the sharpest eye.
Pull from the greater side of your mind.
Tear down the wall that's stuck,
In between soul and mind.
Watch as the worlds collide,
And leave your shell behind.

[Chorus:]
Just when ocean waves die upon the shore line,
From which we stand.
It's amazing how beginning,
Comes from ending.
Now that's too much to take.

[Verse 2:]
Did the Ripple breathe the Breather,
Or the Breather breathe the Riple?
Madness starts from where,
This story ends.
Nothing from the past,
Ever happens quite the same.
Induce only forward,
And leave your shell behind.

[Revised Chorus:]
Just when ocean waves die upon the shore line,
From which we stand.
It's amazing how beginning,
Comes from ending.
Now that's too much to take.
That's just too much to take,
In.

[Verse 3:]
Wont you,
Take in this old shell,
And trade it for some understanding.
You're bound to find out that,
Infinite is one.
Just one thing.

[Outro:]
The Ripple breathes,
The Breather breathes.
The Ripple breathes,
The Breather breathes.
The Ripple breathes,
The Breather breathes.
The Ripple.

Track Name: A New Hope
"A New Hope"

[Chorus:]
To your grave I spoke,
Holding a red,
Red rose.
Gust of freezing cold air,
Whispers to me,
That you are gone.

[Verse 1:]
Always,
Always asking the question,
Why life is overrated.
But I never,
Never expected that I'd,
Underestimated my love for you.

[Chorus:]
To your grave I spoke,
Holding a red,
Red rose.
Gust of freezing cold air,
Whispers to me,
That you are gone.

[Verse 2:]
Always,
Always just out of reach from my,
Over frustrated,
Shameful hands.
And I never,
Never expected that I would ever,
No never take for granted your precious time.

[Chorus:]
To your grave I spoke,
Holding a red,
Red rose.
Gust of freezing cold air,
Whispers to me,
You're gone.

[Verse 3:]
Spent a lifetime of holding on,
Just to let go.
I guess I'll spend another lifetime,
Searching for a new hope.

[Chorus:]
To your grave I spoke,
Holding a red,
Red rose.
Gust of freezing cold air,
Whispers to me,
You're gone.

[Repeat Verse 3:]
Spent a lifetime of holding on,
Just to let go.
I guess I'll spend another lifetime,
Searching for a new hope.

[Outro:]
A new hope.
A new hope.
A new hope.
A new hope.
Track Name: Were Not Alone
"We're Not Alone"

[Verse 1:]
At sunrise,
Open your eyes,
Take a good look outside,
And wonder.
"Is this right?"
Because deep down inside,
There's something that's left to discover.

[Pre-Chorus:]
Is your grand design,
Hand-woven nor divine?
As right as the rain smells,
When it hits the ground.
As safe as an infant feels,
In Its mother's arms,
Sleeping peacefully.

[Chorus:]
We're not alone,
Softly she whispers.
As out of control,
As this world seems to be,
We're not alone.

[Verse 2:]
When day turns to dusk,
And you close your eyes,
Finally realize as you ponder.
At the battling storm in the sky.

[Pre-Chorus:]
Is your grand design,
Hand woven nor divine?
As right as the rain smells,
When it hits the ground.
As safe as an infant feels,
In it's mothers arms,
Sleeping peacefully.

[Chorus:]
We're not alone,
Softly she whispers.
As out of control
As this world seems to be,
We're not alone.

[Verse 3:]
It's impossible to look away.
I'm astonished,
By your absolute beauty.
Makes me smile,
Just when you say-

[Verse 4:]
Set all your fears aside,
Reveal what has grown through time.
The Overcast falls behind,
Then you'll find-

[Chorus:]
We're not alone,
Softly she whispers.
As out of control,
As this world seems to be,
We're not alone.

[Outro:]
It's impossible to look away.
(Softly she whispers.)
I'm astonished,
By your absolute beauty.
(As out of control.)
Makes me smile,
Just when you say.
As this world seems to be,
As this world seems to be,
As this world seems to be,
We're not alone.

Track Name: Colorful Mind
"Colorful Mind"

[Verse 1:]
Picture perfect,
Mutilation.
Bright to black,
With no hesitation.
All the right shades,
On the wrong page.
Makeup this colorful mind,
This colorful mind,
Of mine.

[Verse 2:]
Soothing brush strokes,
Scraping paint.
Loosen your grip,
Before it all fades.
Vibrant rays,
Eclipsed by the haze.
Makeup your colorful mind,
Much less colorful.

[Chorus 1:]
Will this be,
Another day in night in here?
The knife's not sharp enough to fear.
If I ever see you in white,
Try to stay.
The room's not lighted for a gray.

[Chorus 2:]
Will this be,
Another day in night,
If I ever see you in white?

[Chorus 1:]
Will this be,
Another day in night in here?
The knife's not sharp enough to fear.
If I ever see you in white,
Try to stay.
The room's not lighted for a gray.

[Verse 3:]
If I ever see you in white.
Try to stay,
The room's not lighted for a gray.

(Make up this colorful mind.)
Track Name: One Track Minded Age
"One Track Minded Age"

People were people
So their nightmares came through
Now our world is full of the nightmares left from you

Your screams were loud
Now you're sound
Asleep, for I, helped guide you down.

Ages and numbers
Pass all of us by
With an empty hand extended
Never satisfied

Your screams were loud
Now you're sound
Asleep, for I, helped guide you down.

Down from the throne that you're all on
Welcome to the one track minded age
Welcome to the one track minded

So sure of yourself now your self's gone
Welcome to the one track minded age
Welcome to the one track minded
Track Name: Sight For The Sore Eyes
"Sight For The Sore Eyes"

[Verse 1:]
Some have to see to believe it,
Others are blind yet,
Can feel it.
The flame burns thick,
As the wick.
Dwelling darkness inside,
Of their withering minds.

[Pre-Chorus:]
Is this the part,
Where we start our lives?

[Chorus:]
What a sight for the sore eyes
It's getting colder in here,
It's sobering.
To see them,
Shuffle to the back of the line.
While they suffer in fear,
The mark that was made it so clear.

[Verse 2:]
Quivering thoughts now surround you,
Engulfed by the ties that we undo.
The tides that hold shadows at bay,
Are bound and undone.
All but the one.

[Pre-Chorus:]
Here comes the part,
Where we start our lives.

[Chorus:]
What a sight for the sore eyes.
It's colder in here,
It's sobering.
To see them,
Shuffle to the back of the line.
While they suffer in fear,
The mark that was made it so clear.

(On the edge I stand,
Preparing to go but,
I feel I've already been here.)

[Chorus:]
What a sight for the sore eyes?
(For the sore eyes.)
It's colder in here,
It's sobering.
To see them,
Shuffle to the back of the line.
While they march in with fear,
The marks that were made,
Are so clear.

[Verse 3:]
So,
Why does nothing make us wanna try?
You're too close,
To look behind.
Just one touch,
You can change so much
