Track Name: Interception
Wake up from your peaceful dream and be the first to see
That we are the ones who cast the shadow
When in reality we’ve just built a vivid framework
We hide the reasons why we’re all crawling through life
So we mourn the loss we suffer
Our life is a tragedy and we are all just sitting ducks

Infinite raw subconscious
We lost sight of what is real
If you think you were given an option
You’ll be in for a rude awakening

The truth you once knew your mind will surely forget
One simple idea is spreading like a plague

Infinite raw subconscious
Crush the castle built on fear
Expand beyond every limitation
It’s the only way to a true awakening

The truth you once knew your mind will surely forget
One simple idea is spreading like a plague
The truth you once knew your mind will surely forget

Your house of cards has finally come crashing down
So pick up the pieces and move beyond your mind
And leave your selfish life behind

The truth you once knew your mind will surely forget
One simple idea is spreading like a plague
The truth you once knew your mind will surely forget
One simple idea is spreading like a plague

Your house of cards came crashing down
Move beyond your mind and leave your life behind
Track Name: Fictional Constructs
And even if you are wrong it's undeniable
That every word we say just makes it worse
Did you think that we could have it all?
I've done nothing wrong

I just can't let it go
No I've done nothing wrong

"Greed has poisoned man's souls, has barricaded the world with hate
has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed
We think too much and we feel too little
we have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in..."

I'm falling - I am done
I see myself - I see everyone
This bareness is not what life's about

We are all just words with sanctions
We are kneeling - we are god

And even if you are wrong I'm still miserable
Every word you said just made it worse
Did you think that I would let it go?
I've done nothing wrong

"The machinery that gives abundance has left us in want
Our knowledge has made us cynical our cleverness hard and unkind
More than machinery we need humanity
More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness..."

We falter - we are numb
In petty terms we cloak our lives
Limits are the fraud set by our minds

We are all just words with sanctions
We are falsely proud
We are kneeling - we are god

We are all just words with sanctions
We are falsely proud
We are kneeling – we are god

And even if you are wrong I'm still miserable
How far can our grasp reach if we are fictional?
So tell me what have we become
Are we so trivial?
We are so miserable...

And even if we are right there must be something more to this life
If we’re the construct where is the motherfucking architect?
Track Name: Antecedent
Here is my explanation
I'll bring chaos to your routine
What you love and hold sacred
Never meant anything
The fault you cast upon us
The guilt and burnt in scars
Pictures and memories
All taking sides now

All the turmoil...
All the tears...for nothing

Your smile so familiar
But it's so fucking wrong
To think that's all it takes
To turn my head and walk along
The road we've paved
With silence and regrets
Too many things that we hoped to forget

All the turmoil that we collected
All the tears...for nothing

(All those years...)

For so many years we've let our lives slide
Emotions we've bread
Barely kept us alive
If there ever was a point of no return
We've left it far behind
Our hopeless days and jaded nights

All the turmoil that we collected
All the tears you cashed in for nothing
All the turmoil that we collected
All the tears you cashed in for nothing

(All those years...for nothing)

I see a picture torn of what we once had
All the healing words that could have been said

I see a picture torn of what we once had
All the healing words that have never been said

All the turmoil that we collected over the years
All the tears you cashed in for nothing
All the merits that you hold dear (so dear)
All the fault you pushed upon us will never leave us
Track Name: Method and Manner
Our lives are sealed and kept unfulfilled
Through methods that keep us corrupted
The mindset that is feeding on attention and eating us alive

Depressive emotions and we keep pretending
While trying to help we destroy everything we touch

All the noise that keeps piercing
Our ears no longer will listen
Dreams we used to shape our lives have now imprisoned our minds
Left us with nothing and screaming in silence as we are falling apart

(You left us with nothing…now we’re falling apart)

We keep striving and hoping and lying
Till the moment when the roof caves in
All our hopes fly out the windows
Instincts got buried under wasted years

Depressive emotions and we keep pretending
While trying to help we destroy everything we touch

All the noise that keeps piercing
Our ears no longer will listen
Dreams we used to shape our lives have now imprisoned our minds
Left us with nothing and screaming in silence as we are falling apart

We are the ones who have tightened the ropes
We are the ones who imprisoned us all
We are the ones who have slayed our own kind
We are nothing….

We are the ones that are squeezing our necks
We are the ones who have lost all respect
We are the ones who will crumble and fall
We are the ones who will bury us all
Left us with nothing and screaming in silence falling apart…

(You left us with nothing…now we’re falling apart)

Depressive emotions and we keep pretending
While trying to help we destroy everything we touch
The constant feeling that we’re descending
Our instincts are fading but a part of us still feels alive

All the noise that keeps piercing
Our ears no longer will listen
Dreams we used to shape our lives have now imprisoned our minds
Left us with nothing and screaming in silence as we are falling apart
Track Name: Pull the Threads (Extraction)
A perfect place that we once called our own
Now lays in ruins after what we've become
You felt disgusted I thought you trusted me
But you made the tension become unbearable

I ask myself why - why do I still feel hurt inside
A perfect life - sacred vows
There was nothing sacred about us…

It’s still consuming me and I am slipping away
The thought of you getting on puts me back in despair

So ask yourself why - why do you still feel wrong inside
Now that we are done
We are still the tormented ones…

Our eyes can’t hide the demons buried deep inside
This time I won’t mind leaving everything behind

What have we done?
Where are we now?
Track Name: Realization
This is not what I've hoped for...
This is not what I've longed for...

I choose to stay just a little while longer
In hope...
In hope of a change

Leaving me guilty for your own reactions
Making me feel smaller than I already am

Will you recognize what you have done?
Cutting the line, just to make it worse...
Can't you feel what I'm holding inside?
So come and take just one look through my eyes...

We are no longer what we used to be
Why did you turn your head when I needed you to see
You are no longer who you used to be
And now it feels like I'm drowning...
Track Name: Outreach
“It's getting hard to breathe
My blood is running thin
The taste is sickening
My chest is caving in”

Mother…

“It’s getting hard to breathe
I’m slowly giving in”

You took the best of me and left me in ruins

Liar - You took your life for granted
Your eyes trade lies for compassion

“My eyes are filled with deception
My eyes trade lies for compassion”

It took your life away and left you in ruins

No - we weren’t built to last
We’re falling to pieces
No - we weren’t built to rest
We’re part of a vicious cycle

We are all just fucking liars - we were never built to last
We are all just fucking liars – we are never gonna last
Burning from inside - I feel so helpless now
Burning from inside - I feel so helpless now

No - we weren’t built to last
We’re falling to pieces
No - we weren’t built to rest
We’re part of a vicious cycle

It took the best of me
Now I’m lying in ruins
You took the best of me
Now we’re lying in ruins
Track Name: The Last Submission
“I am so tired and strung out day after day…
I have nothing left…
Lost all my faith now I'm right at the end…
They took it all away…”

These are the words of a desperate man not taking his last stand
So I swore to myself not to give up and fight - fight till my last breath

I will conquer the poisons inside me
I will unmask the face that keeps hiding
I will unveil

…wheels of time are catching on
The weight of the world keeps pulling me under

The wheels of time are catching on
As the weight of the world keeps pulling me under
All the scars that forge my skin
Remind me that I have so much to give

I will conquer the poisons inside me
I will unmask the face that keeps hiding
I will unveil

The wheels of time are catching on
As the weight of the world keeps pulling me under
All the scars that forge my skin
Remind me that I have so much more to give

The wheels of time are catching on
As the weight of the world keeps pulling me under
All the scars that forge my skin
I still have so much…
…so much more to give
Track Name: Endgame
„A lot of times the ability to see what's coming gives you the chance to do something…
We are sleepwalking through history and the consequences may be dire…
In a society which is predicated on competition…and the ruthless exploitation of one human being by another… the profiteering… the ruling ideology will very often justify that behavior to some fundamental and unalterable human nature”

This is our home…

The sun is slowly drowning
The fires are seeding black
The seas cover us with silence
Endless oceans wash our sins away

Time has proven our emptiness
The mist has covered our tracks
Life never meant anything
Just an echo from the past

If the act of violence is part of mankind we deserve the suffering
Since the age of man we have been acting like gods and the time has run out

This is our home…
The fires are seeding black
This is our home…
Endless oceans wash us away

Our sun is slowly drowning
The fires are seeding black
Our world is slowly dying
Endless oceans wash us all away…

All away…
