Track Name: Shadows
LOOKING IN MY MIRROR
CLOUDED DUST LEFT MY SIGHT
ALONE AT THE WHEEL
WEIGHTLESSLY WANDERING
TRAPPED IN THE FIELD
I AM A GHOST HOLDING ONTO YOUR FEEL

I WOULD COME BACK ALIVE
I WOULD CHANGE FROM THE INSIDE
IF I KNEW IT WAS FOR YOU
I WANNA SHOW YOU WHO I CAN BE
BUT YOU’LL NEVER GET THE CHANCE TO SEE
CAUSE YOU WERE THE DEATH OF ME

I WAS ANGRY FOR NO REASON
I WAS SEARCHING FOR THE MEANING
I MISUNDERSTOOD YOUR REACTION
HOW COULD I LET THIS HAPPEN
I WAS ANGRY WITHOUT A REASON
NOW YOU’VE LOST ALL YOUR FEELING
I MISUNDERSTOOD YOUR REACTION
HOW COULD YOU LET THIS HAPPEN

DRIVING TO YOUR HEART
NOW WE’RE BACK TO THE START
I JUST CAN’T BE HERE WITHOUT YOU

SHADOWS HOWL UNTIL I FIND MY WAY
HAUNTING THE WORLD
I’LL NEVER FIND THAT FEELING AGAIN
Track Name: Time Machine
ALL THAT WE ARE TAKING
ADVANTAGE OF IS OURSELVES
NOT CARING FOR ONE ANOTHER
DON’T YOU TRY TO HIDE IT
WE’VE ALL HAD OUR CHANCE

WE’LL WATCH THE WORLD GO BLIND
WITHOUT LIFTING A FINGER
WE KILLED ALL WE COULD FIND
NOW WE HAVE TO LIVE IN DESTRUCTION

IT’S ALL ABOUT THAT POWER
WE LIVE BEYOND THE SCOPE
PUSHING CLOCKS BACK FOR HOURS
WE’LL WATCH THE LIGHTS COMBINE
SHINNING THROUGH OUR EYES
THERE’S NO MORE POWER LEFT TO FIND

THE WORLD WILL SLOWLY FADE OUT
MEMORY FLOATS AWAY
AIR IS GETTING COLD
BRINGING ON THE END
HOURS RACING
TOWARDS DARK
Track Name: Fables
YOU LOOK LIKE SOMEONE LOST
SEARCHING FOR UNDERSTANDING
FORGET THE LINES THAT YOU’VE BEEN TOLD
THEY CAN’T EXPLAIN THE FIRE IN YOUR SOUL

IT’S ALL WE HAVE
IT’S ALL WE KNOW
THE STORIES THAT WE’VE ALL BEEN TOLD
THEY CAN’T ERASE
THEY CAN’T EXPLAIN
ALL THE QUESTIONS THAT REMAIN
IT’S ALL WE HAVE
IT’S ALL WE KNOW
THE STORIES THAT WE’VE ALL BEEN TOLD
THEY CAN’T ERASE
THEY CAN’T CONTROL
THE FIRE BURNING IN YOUR SOUL

OPEN YOUR EYES
THE LIGHT ISN’T GONE
IT’S BEEN HIDING IN THE ANSWER
TO THE QUESTION THAT YOU ASKED
BUT YOU KNEW IT ALL ALONG

ALL WE KNOW
IS THAT WE’RE HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE
SOME THINGS ARE BETTER LEFT UNEXPLAINED
ALL WE KNOW
OUR LIVES MEAN MORE THAN ANOTHER FIGHT
TO SEE OURSELVES IN A BETTER LIGHT
EVEN IF THE WORLD CATCHES FIRE TODAY
WE ALL LIVE, LOVE, AND DIE THE SAME
Track Name: The Fog
IT’S LIKE THE SAND BETWEEN MY TOES
FILLING IN THE GAPS IN MY SOUL
IT FEELS LIKE I’M JUST TRYING TO SURVIVE
BUT I’M BARLEY ALIVE

OH NO, I’VE LOST CONTROL
CAN I EVER FILL THIS HOLE

IT’S LIKE I’M EATING MYSELF TO MY BONE
IT’S LIKE I’LL NEVER HAVE ENOUGH
TILL IT’S GONE
WHEN THE BOTTOM HITS
IT’S MY SOUL THAT I’LL MISS
CAUSE I’LL KEEP EATING AWAY
TILL IT’S GONE

ELECTRIC UNREST
ON THIS FLIGHT OF CONSCIOUSNESS
I’M LETTING GO

HOW CAN I BUILD MYSELF
WITH BROKEN BRICKS
HOW CAN I STAND MY GROUND
WHEN THE EARTH SHAKES

IT’S LIKE I’LL NEVER HAVE ENOUGH
TILL IT’S GONE

AM I KEEPING MYSELF ALIVE
IF I STOP WILL I DIE
Track Name: Spores
TEAR OFF
TEAR OFF MY HANDS
THEY ONLY CAUSE ALARM
LIBERATE
LIBERATE MY HEART
IT’S THE ONLY THING
I HAVE IN THIS WORLD

THE LINE GETS A LITTLE BIT STEEPER
YOU’LL FIND INVISIBLE CREATURES
PULLING YOU UNDER
UNDER THE OCEAN

WHEN WILL YOU WAKE UP
THIS BODY’S NOT STRONG ENOUGH
TO HOLD ME DOWN

THE TIDE GETS A LITTLE BIT HIGHER
THE CURRENT GETS
A LITTLE BIT STRONGER
CARRIES ME AWAY
INTO THE WATER
THE STARS BEGIN TO BURN BRIGHTER
THE SKY STARTS TO CATCH FIRE
I’M DRIFTING AWAY FROM THIS WORLD

WHEN WILL I WAKE UP
THIS BODY’S TO WEAK
TO HOLD ME DOWN
WHEN WILL I WAKE UP
I WAS LOST BUT NOW

TO BE HERE
AND WATCH THE WORLD
AS IT APPEARS AS NOT OUR OWN
Track Name: The Impressionist
BREATHLESS
I’M ANTICIPATING THE NEXT
MOVE FOR ME TO TAKE
BUT I’M STRONGER THAN BEFORE
KEEP IT ALL LOCKED UP INSIDE
UNTIL THE PRESSURE BURSTS
AND THE SWELLING SUBSIDES
AND I LEARNED ALL
THAT I COULD FROM YOU
AND IT ALL MAKES SENSE IN THE END
AND I NEVER THOUGHT THAT
I COULD LOOSE YOU
MY DEAREST FRIEND

HERE WE ARE THROWING
CAUTION TO THE WIND
THIS BATTLE HAS TAKEN ITS TOLL

KNOWLEDGE DOES NOT
AVAIL ME IN THIS SPACE
ALWAYS WAITING FOR ANOTHER TRY
AND I’M STUCK IN THIS PLACE
THIS IS NOT WHERE I’LL DIE

LET ME OUT
I’VE GROWN OUT OF THIS BODY
WAKE ME UP
I’M DROWNING IN THE WAKE
AND I NEED YOU TO SAVE ME

I TOOK PATHS WITH NO DIRECTION
IT’LL ALL MAKE SENSE IN THE END
I FELT LOVE WITHOUT AFFECTION
BUT NOT AGAIN

NOW I’M DROWNING IN THE WAKE
Track Name: Patience
IF I EVER STEP ASIDE, FIND ME HERE
SLEEPING AWAY WITH A HOLE IN MY BED
WHEN WILL I EVER FEEL LIKE COMING UP
TO FACE THE SPACE TAKING OVER MY HEAD
AND IF I EVER ESCAPE TIE ME UP
I WANNA BE LOCKED IN MY HEAD

I CAN’T STOP DREAMING OF YOU AND I ALONE
YOU CAN’T ESCAPE MY HEAD
I CAN’T STOP DREAMING OF THE STORM
IT’S KILLING ME
BUT I’LL BE PATIENT INSTEAD

AND IF I EVER STEP ASIDE, FIND ME HERE
BURNING MY BONES IN A GLASS WITH MY FEARS
WHEN WILL I EVER FEEL LIKE COMING UP
TO FACE THE TRUTH THAT YOU’RE NOT HERE
AND IF I EVER ESCAPE TIE ME UP
I WANNA BE CHAINED TO THIS BED
AND IF I EVER CLIMB OUT OF THIS HOLE
STOP ROTTING IN THE PLACE THAT YOU STOLE

AND IF I EVER ESCAPE TIE ME UP
I WANNA BE LOCKED IN MY HEAD
AND IF I EVER ESCAPE TIE ME UP
I WANNA BE CHAINED TO THIS BED

LAYING NEXT TO YOUR HOLLOW BONES
BUT THEY CAN’T KEEP ME WARM
I LEFT ALL MY FEARS AT THE DOOR
BUT I’M STILL WAITING FOR
Track Name: Vagrant
CRASHING TO MY HEART
IT’S ALL I’M WORKING FOR
UNTIL IT ALL DRIFTS APART
FALLING FROM THE MOON

WITHOUT A SOUND FAILURE
CAME AROUND
TO TEAR APART MY INSIDES
WITH NO WORD IT’S ALL THAT I HEARD
THERE MUST BE ANOTHER WAY

CAN WE FALL IN LINE
CAN WE FALTER THIS LINE

CAN WE FALTER LINES
THAT BIND US IN OUR MIND
WE WILL BREAK AWAY
AND FIND OUR PLACE IN TIME

LOOKING BACK I SWORE
I KNEW IT ALL ALONG
BUT NOW I KNOW
THAT MISSING PIECE
WAS ALWAYS GONE
Track Name: Transcendence
LOST MYSELF AND I’M AFRAID
WE’RE BALANCING THE ROLES WE’VE PLAYED
PERMANENCE IS HAUNTING ME
WILL I EVER BE FREE

DON’T MEASURE LIFE FROM TIMES HELD BACK
FROM LETTING GO OF YOURSELF
DON’T MEASURE LIFE FROM TIMES HELD BACK
JUST LET IT GO

I’VE FOUND OUT
WE’RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME
DON’T SEARCH FOR THE ANSWER
IT’S ALL RIGHT THERE

STOP THINKING YOU’LL BE SAVED
KEEP AN OPEN MIND, OPEN SOUL
KICKING UP COALS
YOU’RE AT THE END OF A ROPE
SO LET GO
I’LL NEVER BE SAVED
I’VE KEPT AN OPEN HEART, OPEN SOUL
BEEN AT THE END OF IT ALL AND LET GO

LATELY I’M FINDING MY HOME
NOW I CAN’T WAIT TO
UNLOCK THE DOOR

LET YOURSELF GO
TAKE A SECOND TO FIND IT
YOU THINK YOU’RE FREE BUT YOU’RE NOT
Track Name: Borne of Fire
SOMETIMES I FEEL I HAVE BEEN STRANDED
BEGUILED FROM THE WEIGHT OF IT ALL
DREAMING OF A DISTANT PLACE
TOO HOT TO STAND THE HEAT
BUT ENOUGH TO DISSIPATE

I’M FLYING TOWARDS THE SUN
I’M LETTING GO OF ALL MY FEARS

FLOATING ABOVE ALL THE CARELESS
INDIGNATION IS PULLING TOWARDS THE SUN

MY JOURNEY HAS JUST BEGUN
I’M FLYING TOWARDS THE SUN
IT’S BURNING EVERYONE
BUT I REMAIN DETERMINED

THE GENTLE WIND HAS GONE
AND WITH IT EVERYONE

MY PERSISTENCE WILL NOT SUCCUMB
AS I CLIMB TOWARDS IT
MY FEAR IS GONE

I’M LOST IN THE MOTION
I FEEL MY TIME HAS COME
BUT STILL I REMAIN CLIMBING
CLIMBING TOWARDS THE SUN
