Track Name: All Seer
Look into my eyes. Tell me what you see.
Do you see rage or serenity? Do you see destruction or solitude?
Clouded eyes conceal an esoteric soul.

Chorus:
Tell me what you seek, and I will provide a path.
If you are blind, I will show you light.
Show me how you feel, I'll show you heart.
Wisdom comes from the wise. Progression from an open mind.
Gaze and feed your hunger.
I am thee all seer.

Stellar intellect with universal capacity.
I've seen conviction fail, and beasts evolve.
I've seen empires rise and societies crumble.
I've seen hateful love, and compassionate evil.
I've seen the forgotten past, and the end of humanity.

Chorus:
Tell me what you seek, and I will provide a path.
If you are blind, I will show you light.
Show me how you feel, I'll show you heart.
Wisdom comes from the wise. Progression from an open mind.
Gaze and feed your hunger.
I am thee all seer.
Track Name: Unique Mind
Open your eyes. Come to the light.
It bears reflection into one’s mind.
Push forward in times of struggle.
Better to feel pain than nothing at all.
No need to blind acceptance.
Seek the way to complete liberation.
Destroy Delusion, to reveal the reality.

See things for what they really are, there is nothing static.
In this life it’s sink or swim. You got to want it, you need it, you love it, you live it.
Open up your heart to a world of pure empathy.
Cultivate Consciousness; unify, purify, strengthen your mind.

See things for what they really are, there is nothing static.
Find a place where you feel alive. You’ve got to make it your passion, your everything.
Open up your mind to a world of possibilities.
Promote progressiveness; unify, purify, strengthen your mind.

Push forward in times of struggle.
Better to feel pain than nothing at all.
No need to blind acceptance.
Seek the way to complete liberation.
Destroy Delusion, to reveal the reality.
Unify, purify, strengthen your mind.

Open up your heart to a world of pure empathy.
Open up your mind to a world of possibilities.

Open up your heart!
Open up your mind!
Open up your heart!
Open up your mind!
Track Name: Flourishing Illusions
This is the memory, to live life as a mystery.
Create.. Inspire.. Looking deep within my heart.
These mirrors of confusion, flourishing thoughts of illusion.

These thoughts of grandeur.. for what is worth, is a stepping stone to what I’ve become.
So dip into the unknown. The thought can be paralyzing, but eager to see the other side.
As it all unfolds; everything is green, everything is gold.
Hear, see, feel stories untold.

This life is meant for us.
--So Come As You Are!
Get lost with us.
--And Live It Up!

Wake Up!

Clear your eyes to see this world shimmer.

--So Come As You Are!
Get lost with us.
--And Live It Up!
This life is meant for us.
--So Come As You Are!
--And Make A Change
Track Name: Self-preservation
A place that you call home.
Desperately clinging to hope,
but you have waited too long.

Lifeblood I've provided for aeons, taken for granted.
food, water, medicine, shelter.. Vitality to keep on living.
An epoch of rapid transformation, millennia in the making.

I choose what lives or dies, what evolves.. what survives.
I breathe the essence of life.
I spew inconceivable devastation.

Eradication of what plagues the surface, to start over new.
A singular age of mass extinction.

A place that you call home.
Desperately clinging to hope,
but you have waited too long.

A place that you call home.
Desperately clinging to hope,
Longing for reformation,
but you have waited too long.
Track Name: The Collector
Cold, dark, and alone.
All I have are my thoughts and my collections.
Specimens of knowledge. Specimens of nature. Specimens of life.
I am superior. The one you seek.
I travel from distant worlds, through a vast serene landscape.

From the hottest stars to the most desolate terrain.
In constant pursuit of intellect and mind.
Nothing can be done. The motion is set.
I am the beginning, in search for the end.

Studying terrestrial consciousness of emotion and reason.
Everlastingly intrigued by the fabrics of mind,
and captivated by the strings of the heart.
One's inner desire to live or die, these things I've come to feed upon.
More knowledge than any other being. Yet I always crave, starving for more.
Track Name: Dark Woods
Through the dark woods, we will go tonight.
Everything will be fine, as long as we keep our heads down.
Pushing forward with haste.
Dusk has nearly fallen.
Shadows take new life.
Will we see the light again?
Failure is not an option.
This is the only way.

The path is worn. Air is heavy. Smell of decay. Its presence is near.

Through the dark woods, we will go tonight.
Through the dark woods, we will run for our lives.

Through the dark woods, we will go tonight.
Through the dark woods, we will run for our lives.
Run for our lives..

Failure is not an option.
This is the only way.

Sleep child, your time has come.
Track Name: Ego Death
Waves of energy wash over
A Soothing ebb and flow
Holding on to your last breath
Holding on to your last memories
What do you see?

I see my world, and it's beautiful
All shades of color
What I feel, so overwhelming, an awakening of myself
Falling into the sky

Broken barriers. Creative constructs. Everything Surrounding.
Exerting energy. Becoming one. Tears fill my eyes.

Waves of energy wash over
A soothing ebb and flow
We all see an end. No need..
No need to be afraid

I see my world, all shades of color
Broken barriers. Creative constructs. Everything surrounding.
Exerting energy. Becoming one. The world fades away. Falling into the sky.

Come see the brighter side
Come with me, walk with me.
Come see the brighter side.
All shades of color.
Come see the brighter side.
Track Name: My Brother Was Eaten By Wolves On The Connecticut Turnpike
Could a room be so evil? Hiding in plain sight.
At first appearance seems so harmless.
My mind is twisting, warping through time.
Things I thought were lost now haunting empty spaces.
Corrupt pure thoughts are racing back and forth, back and forth!

My life escapes me out the window on the ledge, a view a long way down.
Come to my senses desperately clenching to the last inch of life.

Snow flies, chilled to the bone.
My will is severely challenged and my mind thoroughly explored.
Gruesome images of self infliction.
Close my eyes, but the likeness remains.

The fire burns, it blisters my skin.
Gasping for air, I struggle within.
Suffering, the rain is relentless.
I may not make it through the night.

I must stand strong against these insanities.
Waiting for the breaking dawn.
Energy expelled with a fragile mind.
Something follows, it creeps around the bend.

Alone on this road, I have no choice but to run.
Stone and clouds beside me, demons behind me.

I have become prey... Here Comes The Wolves!
