Track Name: Admission of Guilt
Wait for the breakdown of mankind

Ambition and innovation was the key
Essential for progression to succeed
We’ve gotten ahead of ourselves to the point of no return
Eminent destruction to inherit, inherit the earth

The growth of our intentions
It will lead to our regression

A slow descension built upon power and greed
Forgetting the basics of human need

Were falling through the cracks, I never thought I’d live to see the day
We cannot take it back...will you stay or will you run away?
WIll you run away?
What is to come?

Finding solace in this grand illusion
In this grand illusion
Track Name: Right to Remain
Mysterious lights swiftly descend
People scatter to take defense

Bodiless vapor, retreat to night
I’m here to stay, I’m here for the fight
Strength in numbers they take a stance
An epic struggle of hand to hand

I have the right to remain

Misconception of deception
Shaking spears up towards the sky

Challenge yourself
Determine your worth
Tear them apart
Avenge with all your heart
Avenge with all your heart

Right to remain...
Track Name: Survive
The thought...
Reminiscing of times empowered
Effortless denial of what would come
Please don’t give up

We’ll try to stay alive one more night
Survive another perilous night, one more fight

Experience brings new meaning

We'll try to enjoy our time

We’ll try to stay alive one more night
Survive another perilous night, one more fight
Track Name: From The Bottom of Your Soul
Do you feel?
Can you comprehend
Can you feel me?

Deep within darkness
A Creature lurks within
Awake and be known
From the Bottom of Your Soul

I remember
The way if felt to feel

The turning point
Look deep within yourself
A broken animal
Design with flaws

Broken Animal
From the Bottom of Your Soul
Track Name: The Forest
Into the forest, further we must go...
Searching for knowledge, secrets unknown...
Further....further into the unknown...

Mother darkness tends to all her kin...
From her cloak, feeding creatures within
There is no turning back, they’ll sense the fear inside
Pressing onward to reach, to reach the other side...
To reach the other side

Lurking beyond the twisted oaks;
A shadow figure with flowing cloak
The twisted oaks...

What was I thinking?
To leave it all behind...
I’ve paid my life for this
a journey set in stone...

What was I thinking?
To leave it all behind...

What was I thinking?
Track Name: The Way Things Should Have Been
Parallel to my existence
I see you through this glass
Envy is my right as I’ve seen what has become

The way things should have been...

Distortion of my reasoning
Veering to and fro

I remember the very moment
Where paths divide

Weaving space and time to create duality
Track Name: I.D.
Expansion of the stars to dream
Spatial tethers
Connecting one another
Further reach

And their all defined
Intelligent design
Developing through time
Intelligent design

Esoteric process...
Define mass & thought for space between
Grafting life sometimes means death
Cosmic experimentation

Through a vast array of planetary seeds
Fueled by stars producing Interstellar life

In the further reach
Track Name: Astral Projection
Sailing through eternity

Forces combine
Projecting throughout time
Failing to see beyond the void

Projecting to the dawn of new age
Silent approach to bring new life

Mission objective for cultivation
Destined to bring new change

Preparation for destiny
Creation from astral planes

Descend into atmosphere
Dawn of new age
