01. Continuum Shift

Until the last light goes out in the distant night
My greedy thoughts won't let me rest
Ere the letters have spilled onto the white
This affluence of emotion bursting out of me

Now I feel what it's like
To lose daylight by the hour
Unable to make sense of the bane
Of this sordid generation

If all else fails
I shall claim the pantheon of my sacrifice
For this play is set so far beyond all logic
But my will in disregard of order
Is yet to be broken
I'm not giving in (I'm not giving in)
To the harrowing surge of apathy

Apathy

These words are shaken from a restless mind
Fathered by virtue at loss for life
By a fate set in motion
Their rapier's gleaming blade pointed at your heart

It'll show you fear
In a handful of swirling dust
For I wish my words were free
In the onset of your denial

If all else fails
I shall claim the pantheon of my sacrifice
For this play is set so far beyond all logic
But my will in disregard of order
Is yet to be broken
I'm not giving in (I'm not giving in)
To the harrowing surge of apathy


02. Telltale Notion

In time these majestic doorways will crumble
Insidious faces carving their names in stone
Desperate not for the forgotten
A token of their vanity

Nothing but a little lamplight in the coming storm
To digress its emptiness
No perspective
And no greater matter at hand

No, this is not the end of the world
(This is not the end of the world)
But you can see it from here
(But you can see it from here)
Awaiting it in prospect of expiration

Slow-motion progress led by time-lapse machines
An eclipse of sudden
Yet crawling in on us for ages
To cover up this deceit

The air is filled with the smell
Of fear and distress
It is all too emblematic
For this lasting state of emergency

Go

A cause so vain
Admonitions born from guilt
Living in a constant crisis
We're all caught in a loop

No, this is not the end of the world
(This is not the end of the world)
But you can see it from here
(But you can see it from here)
Awaiting it in prospect of expiration

This is not a telltale notion
This is fiction, a mere equation
Until one day you see with unclouded eyes
The genuine rapture of human nature

Sometimes I feel like
The end of the road is just one step away
Yet it is only another chapter to be told in time

No, this is not the end of the world
(This is not the end of the world)
But you can see it from here
(But you can see it from here)
Awaiting it in prospect of expiration


03. In Kingdoms Of Rain

They said we don't belong here
Only dreaming our lives away
So let all dreadful feeling subside
And sustain the loss while suffering

It is all just a means to an end
So while these days hardly pass by
This is all that is left of us

And so we returned home
To a place where the rain never ends
To find shelter in this sorrow
No, I'm not worth a single tear you cry
'Cause there's nothing left to say but goodbye

I feel so broken and old
Oh, so empty inside
Throughout all this misspent years I've lived
All those wasted years yet to come

The veil of conjuration
Slowly wearing thin
For hours on end we ran
And now I can feel we're just losing touch

And so we returned home
To a place where the rain never ends
To find shelter in this sorrow
No, I'm not worth a single tear you cry
'Cause there's nothing left to say but goodbye

With tired eyes
I see your smiling face
Slowly closing my eyelids
To shut out the blight

Suddenly the world I sense around me
Feels so black
As we're drifting apart by time
I still linger in the wake

Without words
And without screams
Without meaning
And without heart


04. Damaged Beyond Repair

A mere fallacy leads to despite
Obliteration of matters and feelings
A blurred border you do not dare cross
A forgotten sanctuary you cannot claim
The smoke of neglect slowly disperses
Emitting submission to the society

Questioning
All that is given to you
That gathering swarm of bliss
Ebbing in no time
It's the end
Of that promising road
For it has come
Your final end of days

Enclose an extending dream of emptiness
Lose your way
Redefine your patterns of life
Unforetold promises
Will lead into oblivion
Your weak heart
Damaged beyond repair

Burned out spirit
Still smoldering in the dark
Forever to be kept
In this desolate state

Your gleaming skin
Chilled by steady rain
Slowly dissolving
Into the endless chaos of evocation

Questioning
All that is given to you
That gathering swarm of bliss
Ebbing in no time
It has come
Your final end of days
For your weak heart
Is damaged beyond repair

It was a simple blink
That turned day to night

Pathetic
Frail
Broken and defeated
You cannot live


05. Beauty In Passing

The world ends with you
Or so I thought
The forfeiture of light
And darkness at hand
Moving on past rapture
Takes courage
For I've yet to see
Beauty in passing

A weary heart held captive
Where a distant memory
Of you still remains
Now in clear sight
Right before my eyes
I see you drifting away
Cutting ties with the earth

To no avail
I stand in shackles of your departure
Henceforth I scream to the sky
No peace for your shattered soul
For your journey
Has not come to an end
You shall find our place of destination
Beyond the confines of this world

Yeah

You did wander
Where nobody dares to tread
And threw yourself
Upon a frail tether
To smother
What was left of life
To feel a sense of closure
In the palm of your hand

Slowly leaving hold
Of your faint notion of venture
The lucid rain steals away
The remainder of my torment

For now I see
Beauty in passing
For now we see
Beauty in passing

To no avail
I stand in shackles of your departure
Henceforth I scream to the sky
No peace for your shattered soul
For your journey
Has not come to an end
You shall find our place of destination
Beyond the confines of this world

Oh, did your voice
Ever tell of delights?
For there will never be
Another waking hour in these eyes

Yet there is still
More day to dawn
Arise my ravaged heart
Don't you fall aslumber

Walk under groaning trees
And open skies
For you dare not stay too long
Where shadows
Where shadows fall


06. The Outer Rim

Tear down these walls
We built to protect

And withstand the need for resentment
During the advent of all things to come
Feel the friction of converging thoughts

Forming into emotions
Bringing us to the brink of our senses
A charade of deduction
We cannot grasp

Meet me at the outer rim
At the end of consciousness
(At the outer rim)

Perpetuate those emotions
Divulging all which defines us
A contortion of spaces
Escaping far beyond our perception

A systemic error of being
Giving birth to all of our actions
These alignments now falling apart

In order to break
The barriers we once set up ourselves
We are now (now)
Passing the outer regions of our minds

Meet me at the outer rim
At the end of consciousness
(At the outer rim)

Answer my call
For in the light we shall thrive
Come again to your senses
And set the impending inception of change


07. Temporary Loss Of Reason

A longing deep inside
Like a smoldering fire
Only to be suffocated
By circumstances and relation

Its smoke taking your sight
Blinding your eyes
Slowly your anticipation
Of the future is leaving

In winters within you
Nourishing on your pain and distress
Until one day
It eats you up from the inside

Cast aside all useless trappings you wear
And wallow in this euphoria for a moment
For soon this sensation will cease
And rationality will regain control

Set again
The perception is sinking in
Free for but a moment
Bound for a lifetime

A smile on your lips
And the taste of blood on your tongue
Ever so slightly you give in

To the apprehension
Of consequence
Weary have you become
Tired of these iron bars

Suddenly
The flames are growing higher
Swallowing the cinders
And burning up the surface
Your very substance
Bursting out
Your thoughts dwindle
And instinct takes over
Resulting in
A temporary loss of reason

Cast aside all useless trappings you wear
And wallow in this euphoria for a moment
For soon this sensation will cease
And rationality will regain control
(Regain control)

Adherent of devoid the defeat
Turns into a rancid emotion
To give birth to another impulse of rapture
Over the years and through the tears
These feelings will fester
Until the growing despair sends out sparks again
For all good things are wild and free


08. Antibiosis

Hauling the nets of death
Hoisting blindness from the deep
To feed a billion mouths who do not care
Who will not stop or dare

Devastate an environment
Formed a million years ago
Tearing a hole into the planet
After decades of decadence
Centuries of exploitation
There is not much left

And who are we
To break the chain?
Who are we to reign
What cannot be reigned?
An upcoming extinction
Our world's demise
And as the waves arise
And engulf the kings
There is still no clarity

Open up the depths
Enlighten the abyss
To realize what there is to come
As they rise up, we fall back

A collective mind lingers
In eternal darkness
And they look up to see the surface
Shades of the unsuspecting enemy

Open up the depths
Enlighten the abyss
To realize what there is to come
As they rise up, we fall back

Harvest until our very end
The sea sharpens its armory
To give up on what it created long time ago
And drown mankind in nothingness

Open up the depths
Enlighten the abyss
To realize what there is to come
Without symbiosis, we fall back


09. Luminary Ghost

Time bending itself out of shape
Merging with nothing, so nothing remains
Coordinates shifting, dragged out of sight
Devoured and deleted

A violent anomaly
Defying existence
Disabling recognition
To swallow all information

A glitch in the grid of reality
Like a ghost
Remnant of a luminary

Rushing towards
The threshold of entropy
Soon clad in darkness
Enduring till the end of time

But a shadow remains of all ontology
Only a radiation aura
Reverberating
Density growing beyond all proportions

A singularity
In universal equations
Opposing to exceed
The limitations of gravity

Rushing towards
The threshold of entropy
Soon clad in darkness
Enduring till the terminal state

Until all mass
Has perished in blackness
The ghost will remain
Feeding on roving souls

One last circumnavigation
Dissipate at the event horizon
Torn apart by the tides
Drifting, shifting

Time will end right here
Space will end right now


10. Riven

A faint clap of thunder in the distance
The Net Sphere long separated from reality
A droning sound humming in the levels below
All authority cut off from the hub

A calamity
Wreaking havoc in its wake
A gravitational discharge
Echoed through the hallways
Breaching a path
To escape this endless maze

What is life to us
Lost in these endless mega structures?
We're pilgrims on our way
To the edge of the unknown
Towards the rumored end of all

Builders randomly expanding the city
Beyond extinction of mankind
Millennia of uncontrolled growth
Resulting in a Dyson Sphere at grandest scale

Cancel the limiter
To reach the surface
To see the void
Beyond with our own eyes
A testament
To the human spirit
For death may not be
Our only freedom

What is life to us
Lost in these endless mega structures?
We're pilgrims on our way
To the edge of the unknown
Towards the rumored end of all

No way to restore the lost world order
So we flee from this hostile place
Leaving a realm welled up with black tears
Reaching out far into space

An act of heroism
A final act of grandeur
All the odem drained
All the hours used up
