Track Name: The Struggle to Maintain
I see the world
As it's meant to be seen
I see the world
But the world does not see me
Alone
I'm losing my faith in humanity
Stoned
I realize there's not much left of me
My mask is broken into fragments
My insecurity is my reality
To integrate into society
Leaves me helpless and exposed
The door cracks open and all eyes are on me
Suspicious outcast in a world of drones
They can see me struggling to maintain (the status quo)
Disorientation
The Realization
I can not open this door
Track Name: As Humanity Falls
An apes mentality bred into society
The ills of modern man that desecrate us all
Fall into depravity as we wallow in hypocrisy
Another modern meme for your fucking facebook wall
And as we go farther
We are lost of all control
I must stand my ground and move forward on my own
Blinded by deceit and lies spewing from the giant's throne
Inch by inch we're getting closer
To the point of no return
To the point of hope collapsing
To the sound of fear contracting
Lash out in a spiteful rage
Swallowed by the churning madness
Segregate ourselves in madness
Pave the road in blood and hate
I recede into darkness
Search for solace in my mind
Tormented by my fellow man
My only hope is to hide
Deeper I dig my way
As humanity falls
Deeper still is the way
Into madness I crawl
As humanity falls
It's the darkness that calls
There is no way to forgive
Track Name: The Illusion of One
Inhale the Smoke of the shaman
Brain waves dance to a different tone
Skin peels away I am chosen
To bare witness to these worlds unknown
The arrival of the crystal beings
Reality shifts and perception is fleeting
I've become a celestial vessel
Projected into a chaotic level
It's impossible to maintain
Recollection of self is only adding to my pain
Am I alive, dead or insane?
The universe declares that all existence is in vein
Swimming through collective knowledge of eons
The elder ones adrift a towering cosmic throne
Gaseous specter amidst a never ending seance
They gaze upon the radiant light deep within my soul
The illusion of one
Pretending to be relevant as we gaze upon the sun
We cannot hide we cannot run
A timely death the price we pay
For breathing air into the lung
I dissolve
Into the illusion of one
I resolve
Cast away the illusion of fear
I enter another dimension
Chaotic mind with the full blown intention
To change my reality and alter my perception
Another hit to the brain
I dissolve
Into the illusion of one
I resolve
Cast away the illusion of fear
The illusion of one
Pretending to be relevant as we gaze upon the sun
We cannot hide we cannot run
A timely death the price we pay
For breathing air into the lung
Inhale the smoke of the shaman
Exhale the smoke of illusion
Bring me back to reality
Drag me back to insanity
I am falling
Track Name: I See The World
I see the world
As it's meant to be seen
I see the world
But the world does not see me
Alone
I'm losing my faith in humanity
Stoned
I realize there's not much left of me
Return to breathe
Back to reality and Understanding
Return to see
The not everything is everlasting
Track Name: Mental Walls
I’ve traveled astral to escape the human blight
I’ve tried to disassemble reasonings inside my mind
And yet they fail to see
It’s not what’s wrong with me
No one can see me
When I’m lost behind these mental walls
No one can find me
When I hide behind my mental walls
No one can see me
When I hide behind these walls
I am hidden from all
Fading (I am fading away)
Evading (Evading the world)
I’m changing (I am changing the way I live)
I’m blaming (Blaming everyone but myself)
I am the prisoner, the warden, the keeper of my crypt
Pessimistic of my future
Enough to make me sick
And as I stare out my window
My life is passing me by
They are immersed in daylight
Embracing life
As I hide from my window
Away from staring eyes
Put out the fire that’s inside you see
Reality it brings to me
I am lost behind these mental walls
Standing alone
I have tried to see the insanity
That life and love can bring to me
But I am lost behind these mental walls
To die alone
Track Name: Astro Incision
Blood boils from the stars
Human Decay
Another system of reality
The morning dew sets the stars start to fade away
We find comfort in the things we cannot see
Astro incision
A struggle to believe
I cannot breath
My window theaters a world of disbelief
Industrial chaos oblivious to reality
A civilization driven mad by greed and delusions
The ignorance forced on me pushed me into solitude
Fearful ingenuity
Creates my weapons of war
Run
A dark crypt of wood and steel
Preserving thoughts and unique ideals
All the slaves of the modern world
See me as heteroclite
Can you see me, I am lost behind my mental walls
Can you find me, I am hidden away
