Track Name: TRS
Open your eyes, See them falling
Down from the skies, it's such a tragedy
So many lives, Walking a straight line
Determined not to fall
Fighting against destiny
Tell me what you want, I won't listen
I'm so high
No need for your permission
 
Picking up faster, this sultry disaster
I'm giving up reason, for an unmangled season
It feels so right, to be in flight
So take the plunge,
Into the tight rope sky
Into the tight rope sky
 
Balance is a lie, fed at birth
Gravity abound, Lacking self worth
Alone we start to sweat, fear no tomorrow
Letting no one in, leads to constant sorrow
Tell me what you want
I won't listen
I'm so high
No need for your permission
 
Picking up faster, this sultry disaster
I'm giving up reason, for an unmangled season
It feels so right, to be in flight
So take the plunge,
Into the tight rope sky
Into the tight rope sky
Track Name: Colourblind
Sands of time
Don't make me wait another moment
Maybe I'm
Destined for something greater
I'm hopin, I'm hopin

It's no suprise
You've got me hynotized
Another try
And I'll be on my
wayward motion, void emotion

Signs of the times
They're gettin oh so sour
Here's our chance to save a life
Pump the heart, ignite the fire
Seize the spark
It could be over in a minute
if you close your eyes

Colourblind
Black and grey is all I've known
Now here you are
Technicolor and devotion, devotion

It's no suprise
You've got me hynotized
Another try
And I'll be on my
wayward motion, void emotion

Signs of the times
They're gettin oh so sour
Here's our chance to save a life
Pump the heart, ignite the fire
Seize the spark
It could be over in a minute
if you close your eyes
Track Name: Sailing into the Unknown
Rotted wood with-in weak walls
The frame forms a crack
Defective sincerity
Shown only from the back
Tearing it down like breaking bones
The splinters cause real pain
It's not the fall
that hurts at all
Can anybody hear me?

Listen, Closely to the water
Quiet, down and take a breath
Focus your eyes on the black storm
Take heed, turn back until the storm is set

Shaking madness, trembling hands
the structure starts to sway
Blowing from omnidirection
Wind it strips the paint
Sinking deep into the ground
The earth now forms a shield
Fault evasion
No foundation
Can anybody hear me?

Listen, Closely to the water
Quiet, down and take a breath
Focus your eyes on the black storm
Take heed, turn back until the storm is set

Take heed, turn back
Take heed, turn back
Take heed, turn back
Take heed, turn back
Track Name: Hearts of Glass
We have such strong souls
And such frail bodies
Bullet-proof determination
with hearts of glass
hearts of glass

Stone flying through
Windows of glass homes
Ceilings collapsing
Falling Thru the floor

Haven't been here in so long
Wasn't there a reason?
Wasn't there a spark?
Wasn't there once a spark?
Like a light bulb
Like a light bulb

You've become an island
surrounded by a moat
we call the sea
Nothing to help you
No one to attack
When help's what you need
what you need

Stone flying through
Windows of glass homes
Ceilings collapsing
Falling Thru the floor

When did you become
Afraid of happiness, making misery
Misery an old friend
Was it a se-ries of events
Or just natural selection

Stone flying through
Windows of glass homes
Ceilings collapsing
Falling Thru the floor

Haven't been here in so long
Wasn't there a reason?
Wasn't there a spark?
Wasn't there once a spark?
Like a light bulb
Like a light bulb

Struggling to turn on
Flickering violently
Refusing to give up
Wasn't there a? Wasn't there?
Hello?
Track Name: The Silent Ocean
At the present time
I'm beside myself
Nothing seems to be as planned
So I am moving on
You had your chance before
You took too long the clocks run out on you

When the time comes to decide
I hope you'd wait a second longer
These feelings never will subside
My strength lies with my hunger

I'm under
Your secret spell
And I wander
Along the silent ocean

It's hard to hear the song
You never let me write
It hurts to know what could have been
The waves that crash along
An empty beach in motion
Make my aching heart feel numb

When the time comes to decide
I hope you'd wait a second longer
These feelings never will subside
My strength lies with my hunger

Don't you give in and hurry up (Don't You Give In)
Don't you give in and hurry up
Don't you give in and hurry up(Don't You Give In)
Don't you give in and hurry up
Don't you give in and hurry up(Don't You Give In)
Don't you give in and hurry up
Don't you give in and hurry up(Don't You Give In)
BEFORE I'M IN TO DEEP
Track Name: The Mountain's Myth
Plagued by insecurities
Surrounded by the doubt
Nothing existed yet, the clock goes BOOM
It just can’t keep, going on and on
So I climb the mountain, to find the myth

19 hours on a crystal ball
Through torchlight and forest
The shadows seemed to cry
Was it the evening air, the fog rolled in
It covered the depths, left the high shallow
Part of a process, reveal the result

Branded by a new taboo
Baptized into shame
I held a vision that, remains in vain
So I keep on seeking the mountain’s myth
Proceed to fall apart, part of a fall

(Instrumental)

I took a bite and with all of my strength
I was fighting for life then I sang
Take me away

Searching for something, forgetting the cause
It was over before it began
Keep pushing uphill, drive the grave

Eyes on horizon the ball then appears
An old masquerade, a facade on parade
Drift a day

Dancing on lies full of death in disguise
I'm fooled by the one I despise
Break the cage, tear the body

Raising a chair, now all full of despair
I prepare for the landing and pray
Let there be light, let me stay!

Everything shatters to pieces at once
as the colors all fade to erase

At the top, there was nothing
Nothing but lies, and promises empty
At the top, Just another beginning
Another mountain, Another myth
No openings or doors
No portal or way of escape
Free of thought
Neither free to return or to stay
Track Name: Great Betrayer
What have I done
Tasting the faith, lost in the moment
So out of touch, with the voices
I'm hearing steering
Out of myself, out of suggestions
Questions all I have
How is this love when it's only
One sided, decided

Blame it on the father
Blame it on the guilty ones
Take this lamb to slaughter
Sacrifice the holy one
Lay you down to face your fate
Thrusting down the Sakin's blade
Don't cry my son
Your almost on your way

So blame me, the foolish father
The great betrayer, I'll take the blame
Take the blame!
Take the blame!
Take the blame!
Take the blame!
Take the blame!
Take the blame!
Wake me up, Wake me up, Wake me up father
Wake me up, Wake me up, Wake me up father
Wake me up, Wake me up, Wake me up father
