Track Name: Why am I Here? (Ouverture)
Why am I here
Have I been here before
Pathways everywhere
So many opened doors
The beauty of all things
Pulsing in one motion
With the Earth revolving
Billions of collisions

Why am I here?

To find a place
In this endless contusion
Of time and space
The human condition

Finding myself in a new age
History's newest page
For once I feel in control
As I finally escape the mold
Track Name: Something More
Another dismal episode
In which I cannot seem to fit
Life on autopilot mode
While I restlessly look for an exit

Everything changes
All I feel becomes so sore
As I read the final pages
Suddenly yearning for

Sommething more
Than suffering, blood tears and war
'Cause dying's not enough
Something worth living for
Something worth dying for

Don't know
If this life is enough
Or if the journey doesn't end in more
Nothing more
Nothing more
Than a last breath for us to long for
Don't know if dying is enough
It's not enough
It's not enough
For me at all

To find a reason to go forth
When everything is bleak at most
Repressing thoughts of loathe
And every other dark and lonely feeling that you host

Until the day we all leave
Secretly wishing to achieve

Something more
Something worth living for
Something worth dying for
Track Name: A World of My Own
Come to me moonlight
Let me bask in your embrace
Mesmerized by the vastness of your realm

Come to me sunlight
Lost in your reflections
Bewildered by the farness of your reach

Comes a time
Of awakening
And self-realization of
The infinity that stretches up above
And all around

And all around
And up above

And the moments pass you by
With all your memories and dreams
And all the reasons why
You're always hiding in the seams
Suddenly don't matter anymore

And you can't stop me tonight
As I'm creating a world of my own
Track Name: My Purpose
Times when I am lost
Into the mires
I need to free my mind
From the madness
Keeping me up at night
What's the meaning of life
What it means to be alive

What's my purpose in life
[Or in the afterlife]
Why are we born to die
[Why some so much sooner than others]

Rain falls
Like rain crashing on the walls
As I think about how we all die
So please come by my side
Let me hold you tight

Let me feel the rain
Cleasing my sorrows
[Cleasing your deepest sorrows]
Let me hear your voice inside my heart
[You're the one thing]
That pulls me out
When all I see is darkness
To remind me that I'm alive
And how you make it so worthwhile

Am I where I'm meant to be
Is this what was meant for me
Is there a single thing I've done
That will matter in the long run

And if I was to die tonight
Somehow I would be alright
As long as you are by my side
As long as you are by my side
Track Name: Losing Your Mind
Lose your mind
Can somebody please grab my hand
Lose your mind
I think I no longer understand
Lose your mind
Feels like I'm slowly losing grip again
Lose your mind
I'm no longer here, I just pretend
Lose your mind
There's no holding back my ascend
Lose your mind
Can't get a hold of myself in the end
Lose your mind
Nothing anymore can keep me around
Lose your mind
My feet slowly lifting off the ground

I'm losing it
I'm leaving it all
I won't be back
This is my heart attack

Feeling rather rad this mundane morning
I think I'm gonna buy myself an eggmuffin

Sunshine through the windshield
I can't see where I'm driving

I stop by, sing a lullaby into the drive-through
"That's pretty nice sir, but could I have your order?"

I don't want your condescendence
Just give me a glimpse of freedom
I don't need your so-thought common sense
But maybe an extra cheese and bacon

[Losing your mind]
Pathways everywhere
So many opened doors
To find your place
In this endless contusion

Of time and space
Time and space, time and space
The human condition

Don't need no condescence
Losing all sense of freedom
I don't need no goddamn common sense
I need a destination
Track Name: Crawl
Buried in silence I crawl
Rain crashes against the wall
On my knees, can you hear my call
Only you can keep
My life from sprawling
Help me learn how to fall

How to fall
How to fall
Fall
I crawl

My heart feels like solid metal
My soul is numb, I'm feeling delusional
Buried in silence I crawl
Help me learn how to fall
Track Name: Lifelong Misery
I reach for hope with tired eyes
It's scattered all across the skies
As if the stars had realized
It is not here

Cold lips and shaky limbs
I'm witnessing my very own demise
Waiting for a sign to show
From the burning scars of long ago

I've tried shaking it
Escaping it
But it always comes back haunting me
This chronic melancholy

Help me chase this desolation
[With more than medication]

I Feel like a loaded gun
A burglar on the run
[Fleeing my reflection]

I'm my own enemy
[My own enemy]
Help me from this
Lifelong misery

My ideas fall in drips
Leaking from the corner of my mind
My whole world goes into eclipse
Won't you remind me

Of shooting stars and shimmering waves
Across this sea of lives beneath the shades
Gleaming through these iron towers
Stealing away all the hours

Not a passerby
Can hear the cry
Of the spirits adrift roaming the streets
Their beautiful dark melody

Tied down by cold reality
Drowning in the silence of our dreams
There is no defeating gravity
It pulls us down, faster and faster
Spinning you round until you cannot see
There is no escape
There is no escape from the choices that we make
Track Name: Introspection
I've watched you from afar
Far beneath
The surface you adorn
Something is torn
But all you need is to accept
You are who you are
And reach the other shore
And let your spirit soar
Ascend higher evermore

Let it sink in
Feel it wreathing
Around you

The beauty of all things
Slowly breathing as one
One perfect chaotic motion
Track Name: Retrospection
(Instrumental)
Track Name: You Are Not Alone
Time to wake up
To a new horizon
Don't hurt yourself
Everything is forgiven
It's over now, a new chapter's begun
Hush now, don't you cry
Hush now, don't you cry
Whenever you're lost
Remember that it's all behind you now
I will always be around by your side
Without a sound
I will be around

You are not alone
You are not alone
You are not alone

Time to go now
But there's no need to hurry
Don't be affraid
The end's just another beginning
Everything's gonna be fine
Everything is going to be alright
Just empty your mind
Close your eyes and follow the light
I will be around

You are not alone
You are not alone
Not alone
You are not alone

You are not alone
I will be around
Track Name: Where It Begins, Where It Ends (Finale)
As we try and try again
And we fail to comprehend
That the meaning of our lives
Was always right before our eyes

Whatever comes, whatever goes
No matter how much the storm gets close
I know that we'll come through
I know that we'll come through

The stumbling, the wondering
The excuses and forgiving
But I know that we'll pull through
I know that we'll pull through

And stand together in the rain
Hoping for better tomorrows
And in a single voice
Our heartbeats like blessed drumrolls
And like the seeds of hope

We were scattered
Around the world
To rise out of the earth

For something more
Something worth living for
Something worth dying for
As we all stand
Awaiting our final ascension

Finding yourself in this new age
Its final page
It's all that you've left behind
And everything that are yet to find

Time to reap what you've sown
The future is yours to own
Nothing is wasted, and maybe
There is a reason for all the tears you've shed

And as long as you breathe
There'll be time to choose
To live like you have got nothing to lose
So why are you on the run?
Why are you on the run?
Your journey has just begun

And life goes on
Life goes on

[Where it begins]
But the hardest thing to say
[Is where it ends]
Is that you've lived your life without regrets

Until today
[Where it begins]
Until today
[Is where it ends]
