02. Beyond Within

"Welcome to the fall"

Welcome millennium, the fall of planet hate
Welcome the end my friend, all the world's the stage
Welcome to the future, the world is black no turning
From the consequence of ignorance
Welcome to the fall

Beyond within, enact, enable
Create the past, nonexistent fables
Welcome to the fall

Tension, delirium, growing everyday
Another suicide shocks the world again, I watch in apathy
Bleed until tomorrow, whosoever does not believe in me
Welcome to the fall

Beyond within, enact, enable
Create the past, nonexistent fables
Welcome to the fall

Can I bring you down again, can I make you feel?
Can I lift you up into the dreaming trip surreal?
Can I taste the future shock, spit out all the games?
Do you know my name, do you know my number?
Cracking under strange constrictions, Mr. Ordinary Visionary

Welcome millennium, the fall of planet hate
Welcome the end my friend, all the world's the stage
Welcome to the future, the world is black no turning
From the consequence of ignorance

Beyond within, enact, enable
Create the past, nonexistent fables
Beyond within, enact, enable
Create the past, nonexistent fables
Welcome to the fall of one man's sanity


03. The Death Of Passion

"Time has no meaning for me. She is gone,
and the void speaks to me"

You paint the sky in obsidian lies
And come what may never will I know how you changed time
The riptide lies ahead, all my passions now are dead
I can see the path you never thought to follow
I feel so hollow

I stand before you, a shadow of a man
Behind these eyes self destruction swims through my mind
I'm confusion and contempt, I am the void
You are the emptiness of black tomorrow
I feel so hollow

You paint the sky in obsidian lies
And come what may never will I know how you changed time
The riptide lies ahead, all my passions now are dead
I can see the path you never thought to follow
I feel so hollow
You are diseased
You are deceiver


04. I Am The Dog

"The darkwave came again last night.
I want it all to end, I want the world to end"

Every night the dream is the same
I sit here waiting for the world to end but it never ends
And everything I used to be has spiraled into insanity
Every night I sweat and bleed in her name

The darkwave comes, sanity slips away
She screams from the alcove "I am the dog"

She was born in the year of the dog
She never would betray the world I never saw
Blinded eyes that never see shattered into infinity
Every night the dream is the same

The darkwave comes, sanity slips away
She screams from the alcove "I am the dog"

Every night the dream is the same
I suffer wading through the endless waves of empty disdain
And everything I used to be has spiraled into insanity
Every night I sweat and bleed in her name

The darkwave comes, sanity slips away
She screams from the alcove
The darkwave comes, sanity slips away
She screams from the alcove "I am the dog"


05. Dreaming Neon Black

"Again it poured over me in waves.
When she left with them she said I must
break free from the dark. I tried to tell her
of their poison, she chose not to hear.
She was never seen again"

Sometimes when I'm alone I still feel you
Your breath on my neck, you're still with me
And I'm still dreaming neon black
I wait for you, to taste your unknown world
The clock spins to time that must mean nothing

Meet me in the dreamtime water, drown
Shifting shaping currents flow in memory
swim through me
Meet me in the drowning pool of tears
And wash away my innocence and fear

Sometimes I wonder where you are, can you feel my tears?
I never knew what changed you
Did they paint your dreams in pale shades?
I wait for you, you know you cannot hide
Division from within invalidates suffering

Meet me in the dreamtime water, drown
Shifting shaping currents flow in memory
swim through me
Meet me in the drowning pool of tears
And wash away my innocence

I am a child of light living in your mind
The pain, the unknowing washes away in time
Until then will you meet me whenever I call to you?

Meet me in the dreamtime water, drown
Shifting shaping currents flow in memory
swim through me
Meet me in the drowning pool of tears
and wash away my innocence
Meet me in the dreamtime water, drown
Shifting shaping currents flow in memory
swim through me
Meet me in the drowning pool of tears
And wash away my innocence
Meet me

My only cure won't you meet me?
In the drowning pool of fate the moon and the sun still wait
Won't you meet me?
I suffer silently for our love, the jester has lost his dove


06. Deconstruction

"My perfect reflection swims
through the drowning pool. The sky is gone.
My world is in deconstruction"

The fallen that dreams suicide
Takes the needle, instead of the gun
The victim who self crucifies can't realize
Christ is a weapon that chisels at our lives
Deconstruction
The martyr takes his aim and wounds the holy man
And on the eighth day God made the art of war
And laughing planned the end

Who will tend the garden when the snake swallows the light?
Who will eat the decay when the worms have lost their sight?
Who will rape the weak when there's nothing left to gain?
Who will till the soil of these barren black remains?

Deconstruction, deconstruction

Who will lick my wounds when they take away my speech?
Will you stand in line while the shepherd hunts his sheep?
Could you see tomorrow if I took away your eyes?
Can you crawl from under new age prophecy's despise?

Deconstruction, deconstruction

Deconstruct my reality and let me slip away, I am the dog

Who will tend the garden when the snake swallows the light?
Who will eat the decay when the worms have lost their sight?
Who will rape the weak when there's nothing left to gain?
Who will till the soil of these barren black remains?

Deconstruction, deconstruction
Deconstruction, deconstruction

Our world is in deconstruction
Our world


07. The Fault Of The Flesh

"Sometimes bitterness is all you can hold on to,
and within the bitterness I realized my weakness"

To see the fault of unrequited love
There is no truth, there is no purity, there is no love

Flesh is the weakness, flesh is the fault
We are embodiment of all the world's wrongs
No time to look back we are gone
No time to regret the seeds we've thrown away

Man is the parasite, man is the cause
We are destroyers and creators, our precious flaw
We are the architects of fate
We are impure for we burn all we berate

We are but flesh and flesh is the weakness
We are born of blood sinew and bone
We're all just spinning in this useless hole in time
On our way into the black unknown

Man is the parasite, man is the cause
We are destroyers and creators, our precious flaw

Flesh is the weakness, flesh is the fault
We are embodiment of all the world's wrongs
No time to look back we are gone
No time to regret the seeds we've thrown away

We are but flesh and flesh is the weakness
We are born of blood sinew and bone
We're all just spinning in this useless hole in time
On our way into the black unknown

I am but flesh, and flesh is weak
I am but flesh, and flesh is weak


08. The Lotus Eaters

"Why is this happening to me? Why have
I been forsaken? Nothing numbs the pain
any longer......please....I'm slipping away"

We fall into the spaces blind, the puzzle so unkind
The lotus eaters fly
we watch the random pattern form, insidious and cold
And bloom into the unknown

Please God why can't you hear us?
Please God why aren't you listening?

We take the hand of fate in vain, and wonder why your will
Seems cruel controlled and illogical
Do words fall on deaf ears, are we just too small?
Please make us understand

Please God why can't you hear us?
Please God why aren't you listening?
Please God why must we fear you?
Please God why did you take her away?

Please God why can't you hear us?
Please God why aren't you listening?
Please God why must we fear you?
Please God why did you take her away?

Are we your children?
Are we lost?


09. Poison Godmachine

"I know what it wants now...the void
has swallowed the light and the machine
wants my soul"

The media machine knows what to do
It knows how to feed the poison to you
Useless information for your useless little lives
The tv lies and pacifies

Do you believe everything you see?
Children of the void come follow me
Denounce your faith and penance the savior is unseen
I am the new drug, your poison godmachine....poison

Poison godmachine

Poison is a word, God is a word used for fear

In subtlety we obey through ink and broadcast wave
The doubts and fears that shadow media decay
Deprogram this affliction and the cathode ray unclean
I am the last nail, the empty soulless screen.....soulless

Poison godmachine

And we eat the poison, we created the poison godmachine


10. All Play Dead

"I know she can hear me still.
I know she can feel me. The velvet sleep
has stilled her, for they are feeding, while
time is ever shifting"

You are the wine of intoxicating faith
You are the axis of time, I am so blind

Bear witness to freedom's fall
Tomorrow kiss goodbye a little more, as they watch us all
All play dead

I'll sleep in this quiet room where no one sees, I'll play dead
All play dead

Play dead never speak, just assign the blame
According to their game and chase them down the drain
All play dead

I'll sleep in this quiet room where no one sees, I'll play dead
I'll just sit here quietly and watch them feed, all play dead
All play dead

Bear witness to freedom's fall
Tomorrow kiss goodbye a little more, as they watch us all
All play dead

I'll sleep in this quiet room where no one sees, I'll play dead
I'll just sit here quietly and watch them feed, all play dead
All play dead
All play dead
All play dead
All play dead
All play dead


11. Cenotaph

"And I will build this in her name.
The dream will not allow failure,
only servitude, for I am it's slave"

Foreboding fear trickles down the spine
Into the pool, resonating
Behind the wall the dreamer lies in velvet sleep
She must be still, never make a sound

Awake....... awaken the dreamer
Awake....... awaken
Awake....... awaken the dreamer
Awake....... where are you my love?

We build our walls around our games
We decompose, dreamers never really die
She lies unknown, the cenotaph in her name

Awake....... awaken the dreamer
Awake....... awaken
Awake....... awaken the dreamer
Awake....... where are you my love?

She lies unknown
She lies unknown
She lies unknown
She lies unknown
She hides


12. No More Will

"For some there are no choices"

No more will to live, I see the world fade
No more hope inside, my life means nothing anyway
Just shades of gray, I slip away again

Feed me from the heart of your denial
The velvet sleep is conviction only fools know
Dry your own eyes, I can't sympathize
Plague your own dreams, I won't be following

Free me from this sphere of confusion
These tears of dust are the tears from one who knows why
Dry your own eyes, I can't sympathize
Plague your own dreams, I won't be falling

Fly beyond the dreaming, fly beyond our being
Turn and face the mirror, the answers come, clear as glass

Fly beyond the dreaming, fly beyond our being
Turn and face the mirror, the answers come, clear as glass

I still feel you now, you are the falling rain
The voice that stills the pain, I am the lover gone insane
I must be strong, for love burns ever long


13. Forever

"What has been put asunder
shall again be whole"

In this neon black gloom I still see her face
She comes to me bringing darkest hour, I am forlorn
The pain is reborn

You are forever in my heart you never died
You are forever I still wonder where you are

I know you're dreaming, I know you're at peace
I'll meet you in the dreamtime
Whenever you call me I'll go under, I'll swim through you

You are forever in my heart you never died
You are forever I still wonder where you are
I know you're dreaming neon black

"As the curtain calls, and the cast recedes,
I am all that ever was and all that ever will be.
In wither and repose this frayed chapter
now does close, and fade into neon black"
