Track Name: Triangles
Change your shape
trine divided
we are three
your sharpened angles point to me
our lives collided violently
our trine divided into three
change your shape
time decided
side with me
your pain in love
it’s plain to see
our lives collided violently
you carry her
she buries me
Track Name: Shadows
In the shadows, the shadows
all I know is dark /in the shadows, the shadows
crows wings guide your heart
in the shadows, the shadows
truth will turn to lies
in the shadows, the shadows
forlorn spirits rise
in the deep
blackened trees
shrouded figures stealing dreams
frosted peaks / crumbling leaves
decay of a wild beast
and I don’t remember the burn of the sun
and I don't relate to the light up above
and I am a shade of a future that’s lost
in the shadows
beyond the shadow, the shadow of a doubt
beyond the shadow, the shadow of a doubt
Track Name: Safe From Me
Cage the heart so wild and free / it will never be what you want it to be / from the dim light in the room on you and me / for a second I thought I could see / and you were mine in the blink of an eye / so I tried to meet you by and by / but I can fall in love a thousand times a day / I can fall in love a thousand times a day / so I’ll keep myself away / and I will stay home / and I will fall apart / stay away from conflict / stay where I can’t reach your heart / keep you out of harm’s way / safe for another day / from the law of destruction / of what I wanted to say / and if I am faking / I’ll never be free again / and it’s what I’ve chosen / because I have fallen / and when you’ve fallen you should stay down / and I will fall in love a thousand times a day / with every answer from the ones who wanted to stray / stay /and if I am faking, I’ll never be free again / from the large destruction of what I wanted to say / ‘cause you were mine and I want you to see / ‘cause you were mine and I want you to see / and I will try to keep you safe from me
Track Name: Sleeping Giant
All around the things I've seen
Poisons of humanity
All the things that we have known
Never ours, never own
The world can only take so much
Before it rises from the dust
Extinction, Annihilation
A sleeping giant

Oil fires burn the seas
Poison's in the air we breathe
All the things that we have known
Never ours, never own
The world can only take so much
Before it rises from the dust
Extinction, Annihilation
A sleeping giant

And so for the things we've done
Humankind has come undone
All the things that we have known
Never ours, never own
The world can only take so much
Before it rises from the crust
Extinction, Annihilation
A sleeping giant
Track Name: Starseed
Starseed, wonder
Where are you?
Where are you?
Family sent me far away
Far away
Can you hear me over the surd sound?
Am I still here on the flat ground?
Track Name: Invaders Alley
In the dreaming I am
The ghost of darker figures
The void that draws us in is dark and cold

Do you speak with the dead
Those runes filled us with such dread
Ease the pain of absence in your soul

Eternity of time between us
You were once a fallen star
Track Name: Axis Mundi
Come to the center of our world
Start from the center of our world
Have faith in this
Track Name: Rusted
Rusted up with lead paint chipping
Sitting next to a chemical spill
Radiation clouds keep growing
Turning plants and dirt to shit
Animals and birds stop calling
Dry lakes with oil stained fish
Soft mattresses are wrapped in plastic
Green rivers with an orange tint

Brown liquor and a box of matches
Rations for a burned out building
Free bullets and expensive water
Tar, plastic and razor wire
I'll have a few more drinks
Track Name: Brighter
We are, we are brighter
Our love, our love is ether
Our waves of radiation are brighter than the sun
Forget the shit you thought you knew
Forget the lies you thought controlled you
Forget the shit you thought that you knew
Forget the lies you thought controlled you
Fear no darkness
Fear no darkness
Track Name: The Verge
My relief comes to me
When I’m broken down and weak
Voice of doubt, my disease
Screams when I can barely speak
It’s alright, I can see
In the place I need to be
I’m alive, I am free
When the night comes over me

All the things that you said
Always rolling around my head
Twisting heart, a lonely dance
Call me deep into your trance
It’s alright, you are free
In the place you need to be
What I want is what you want
What you want is all I need
Track Name: Bee
Flying high
Glittered wings reflecting light
Dance with air
Sure as torture it’s pure delight (Theia)
Come you star
Run and chase me for your life
Come you star
Buzzing sweetly
Say it right
Comb
Sweet as honey
Hive
High and I am pure honey
Track Name: Insoma
By the sea I saw a skeleton
Rocks point up, right through it
I saw a reflection of emptiness
Lack of foresight, ambition
Track Name: Alice
Oh little Alice
Tell me why you are so sad
Please tell me why you don’t talk to me anymore
You turn away and you brush me off
When I’m the one who should be closing the door

You brought it on by yourself
It’s all make-believe
I swear I’m telling the truth it’s you who tries to deceive
You sit there in your pigtails and you point at me
I’m not the enemy

Oh little girl
I’m sorry to have ruined your life
I didn’t think I was doing anything wrong
You seem to have gotten in the way of my design
But I never knew what was really going on

You brought it on by yourself
It’s all make-believe
I swear I’m telling the truth it’s you who tries to deceive
You sit there in your pigtails and you point at me
I’m not the enemy

Stop chasing the rabbit he doesn’t exist
There’s no cat in the tree
You painted the roses stop blaming it on me
I’ll soon escape from this place just a small piece of the past but you will still be trapped inside of the looking glass

You brought it on by yourself
It’s all make-believe I swear I’m telling the truth it’s you who tries to deceive
You sit there in your pigtails and you point at me
I’m not the enemy
Track Name: Seasonal
She wants the sun / we’re gonna stay home / get down beside the fire and lay low / when it’s so dark, it’s so long / cold design / so dull / seasonal / creeps into my heart / keeps it cold / freezing desire / cold design
