The Cause 05:11
The Cause It’s in the modern myth of normalcy these hypocritical daily routines have I been hypnotized lobotomized they mutualized our brains and the more it breaks my heart the more I drift apart from what I aimed at the start If we get out alive we’ll be defined defined as the living proof of all we’ve sacrificed and all we are and all we were account for us anonymous Hold your breath and count to ten as slowly as you can one blink of the eye and your world starts to burn your blisters remind you that time has turned it will not return There are things inside of me that you will never see so close your eyes the dark the somnolent embrace a rhythmic clatter the sound of a new day it will not come back The delusion worked until that very day have you ever thought it would end this way I came along to take the blame and it hurts when darkness falls I fail to see when the sun shines brightly it’s blinding me the truth lies where we never seek it has always been that way We are the cause anonymous
Obstacles 03:43
Obstacles “Occur. Emerge. Evolve. Stay.” We build dreams always the obstacles in our way they dissolve and come undone A nocturnal try to take it all away how did we get lost here anyway did you weigh my eyelids with your pain It’s our share of the lies and feints out there we fall over and over again we take everything we need then we run and hide it tears me out of nothing don’t take it out on me Is it a place designed to take it all away how we did we get lost here what we’ve called home it’s a search in vain We’ve come back and now we wonder will it ever be the same I try to let it go again “Stay.”
Vision Loss 04:18
Vision Loss A sad event a cruel scene a ruined place it’s disastrous it’s what we’re longing for it shook our minds and winced our limbs and now we witness our demise we’ve been right here before The sum of our faults it rates our lives the long forgotten goals redefined It’s your joke my behalf I’ve learnt to deal with it but still I won’t laugh cause laughter makes me choke as I toss and turn the pages that I’ve burnt to no avail when tragedy strikes Our time is running out it’s the end of our days when hope has gone and slipped away despite our mutual vision loss there’s truth along the way for one moment in time will I see you again The weight of the world we moan it cracks our bones a cramp of a heart made of stone alone so don’t lie to me
Sleep.Deprive. A twist of the twitching thighs perpetuate phantom pain dark circles empty eyes this double vision made me blind it dissolves in black all of which I’ve lost track will come to the fore don’t come to the fore Come to the fore you’ve been fading like you’ve just been waiting for a chance to shake my core in sight of the shore I’m drowning a slow-wave tide devouring all my dreams forevermore Within my earshot a muted voice consolidation the delusion I’ve had a choice realization of the guilt of my disguise the shame of truth inside will come to the fore don’t come to the fore “Choose wisely what you dream don’t lose grip on reality it’s a trap it’s just a lapse in memory”
The Unfamiliar Your wisdom is nothing worth here where the instincts reign a totem you hold the strings but don’t fill in the blanks dominion of the past rewound I’ve given in to you there’s nothing I can do I’ve given in to you You took a bow for the last time time to resign taking over getting closer to an unfamiliar place Forfeit all that I’ve hold dear it’s a vein endeavor I never know I had to stop you’re the time giver cycles of what I’ve once repressed it’s forcing its way through no matter what I do it’s forcing its way through Their prying eyes rapidly moving before they all turn to stone you’re petrified cause deep down inside you are all alone You’ve gazed and gazed into the abyss now it’s gazing into you You tiptoed in the dark and stumbled on what you’ve missed nothing hits harder than your life and you’ve tried so hard but you stumbled on what you’ve missed and nothing hits harder than your life
I. Lucidity Leaving limitation lines I’m drifting away my perception’s colorblind I just want to stay all these facets become different shades of grey is there a new way we’ve come from the same direction now we build another fortress to secure beloved delusions suddenly I wake is there an intrusion to the fake comfort of this place Reclaim your innocence that you have lost when there was nothing left to lose before we start again reclaim your empowerment before we confess that we are blind Moments come and gone we anxiously await the things to come for all I know the devil’s rising up from your windowpane while you are watching the sky We are blind It’s so cold I freeze I’m hiding like a monster a shame a monster in shame
II. Continuum I’m nobody else though I’ve tried hard to be there’s always just a stripped down version of me time tricked me causality and our belief in progress made us blind A fine lied tied to sacrificing all I am in the midst of trying to convince the world I’ve changed the unknown takes you out and leaves you there I’ve been here before though I’ve climbed up and down these stairs I’m caught in a loop defying nature’s laws a new layer of skin doesn’t mean a new beginning it just covers up old scars One flaw a hint that was ignored a hole in the wall a bloodstain on the floor I am ascending down the world has changed its pace I know I shouldn’t have let you go
Falling Sensation I try to put meaning into words how could I if I can’t find meaning in life vacuity and memories romanticized just to please full of restraints embrace what we have I live in the past The thoughts of all missed chances catch my sleep promises I didn’t keep We cannot feel all worked up heads in different spaces we couldn’t stay true to ourselves we’ve been put through paces boundaries the boundaries remain the same Don’t let go whatever it takes I’ll stick to my aims I might have given some up let some of you down I pass them as I fall I don’t dare to write what I feel it’s all been said before the fear of becoming a cliché what you’d call a phrasemaker boundaries these boundaries remain the same fall feel the ground as we touch down below we are the fallen we will prevail somehow we managed to make belief but now we have gone all the ways to go a whole generation doesn’t know (we don’t know) who we are (we don’t know) where we go
The Somniloquist “You collect ideas ideas you wouldn’t let them know about images you wouldn’t show you put them aside to live your life but they come back when you close your eyes you keep telling yourself your dreams aren’t real” Down in yourself where the odds are your muses redefined and reframed what you thought you’ve known I’m done keeping it in from now on I’ll scream it all out I never got anything from drawing circles in the air coming down on me Downstairs the direction that our road is taking so follow me our end has just begun I cannot stay where I don’t belong I cannot sleep when something is wrong let me get lost inside the fountain lost inside the fountain of your thought Deep down below the solitude it grows
Breach 04:04
Breach Coming to your home you’ve invited me so let me in purify your hopes quietly it’s done so clandestine unlawful entry calls for a victim forced my will upon you chose for yourself Sleep now my child with eyes open wide sleep now my child when you wake your youth has died You don’t see me I’m outside your window You don’t see me I’m standing there You’re outnumbered outgunned old-fashioned to use your mind a cancer spread in your veins the virtual kind Reaching out from here when you wake there’s nothing there reaching out from here when you wake there’s no one there run away from here (choose your nightmare) it’s your illusion your private prying (choose your nightmare) Choose your nightmare
