Track Name: Collide
You think you’re safe in the shadow of the monolith
Can’t seem to find your way out of it
You think you’re safe in the glow of your self-created myth
Can’t see these paths of ours are closely knit
Can’t see these paths of ours are closely knit

If you give in to your addiction
We’re bound for collision
These aeons that I’ve been watching you
I can see you
I can feel you
Best you lurk in the shadow still
I can see you and I know if you will

I think I’m through with the soul equivalent complete
Can’t shake the feeling my counterpart’s a counterfeit
I think I’m you and you’re me and we share a common wit
Can’t tolerate such a hypocrite
Can’t tolerate such a hypocrite

If you give in to your addiction
We’re bound for collision
These aeons that I’ve been watching you
I can see you
I can feel you
Best you lurk in the shadow still
I can see you and I know if you will
Keep to your shadow still

What if it’s you
What if it’s always been you
Or is it me
Watched and kept and captivated by you

What if it’s me
What if it’s always been me

If you give in to your addiction
We’re bound for collision
These aeons that I’ve been watching you
I can see you
I can feel you

If you give in to your condition (Your addiction)
We’re bound for collision
Track Name: Phobia
I can see me from a distance
I can feel me from afar
I think I need your guidance
To get back to where we are

I can see me slip away
I can hear me scream
I think I’ve gone astray
To some cold and distant dream

The voices around so weak
The pathways around so bleak
What’s left of sanity creaks
The way to the light I now seek

I can hear you from a distance
Even though I know you’re gone
You escaped your own existence
Still you keep me crawling on

You keep giving me answers
I don’t know the questions to
Your voice a thousand cancers
Won’t be asking what to do

The voices around so weak
The pathways around so bleak
What’s left of sanity creaks
The way to the light I now seek

The phobia clutches on tight

The voices around so weak
The pathways around so bleak
What’s left of sanity creaks
The way to the light I now seek

What’s left of sanity creaks
The way to the light I now seek
Track Name: Brother Mine
I fell down from your arms
I fell down from the stars
And I don’t know who I am anymore

How can you lay down your arms
How can you count the stars
When your oxygen is applauds

If I would call you brother mine
Could I call you to see my horizon
If I would call you the bother of mine
Would I fall to rhyme or to reason

You kept me safe from harm
You kept me tame and unarmed
And I don’t know who you are anymore

You said no foul, no harm
I know I fell for your charm
When you’re the last one to adore

I should have been alarmed
When you said reach for the stars
And all the while I was there to ignore

How can I lay down my arms
How can I count the stars
When it all goes down as before

If I would call you brother mine
Could I call you to see my horizon
If I would call you the bother of mine
Would I fall to rhyme or to reason

Let me get through
Let me get over you
If I can’t get to you
How can I bow to you

I fell down from your arms
I fell down from the stars
And I don’t know who I am anymore
Track Name: No Signal
Now that I’ve lost you for good
It’s finally understood
There is no me without you

I feel I should mourn for you
Yet I fail, it’s too soon
I’m drifting right after you

There were thoughts always left unsaid
At the monolith of the undead
Dire difference in point of view

It’s my final turn around the Sun
All alone, I come undone
My deliverance from your residue

Black noise fades into grey
A dead channel without a light of day
No signal, no will to turn back

Your silence is my retinue
It’s guided me hitherto
No signal, no chance to turn back

You’re gone, I must follow through
Together we’ll get what’s due
No signal, fall into the black

Stay awhile, stay forever
Keep still, keep together
Track Name: Made of Stars
Stare into nothingness
Glare into emptiness
You can’t rise from the dark
Bear me, I must confess
Unheedingly nonetheless
I can’t say I’d miss your spark
Stay confined just where you are

Hear the howling of the Rings
Your impending doom they sing
Viciously flouting your scars
And here you think, here you think
You are made of stars

Spare me to be betrayed
Share opulence decayed
You have made your mark by far
Err to correct your way
Wear out your welcome, stay
I have come too far
To return to where you still are

Hear the howling of the Rings
Your impending doom they sing
Viciously flouting your scars
And here you think, here you think

You are made of stars
And still you think you are made of stars
And here you think you are made of stars
And still you think you are made of stars

We were one
We were fire
We were waves
We were whirlwind
We were thunder
We were dancing on our graves

Hear the howling of the Rings
Your impending doom they sing
Viciously flouting your scars
And here you think, here you think

You are made of stars
And still you think you are made of stars
And here you think you are made of stars
And still you think you are made of stars
Track Name: Of the Undead
The lines have been crossed many times
A consensual distortion of our minds
A match made in the outer rim of hell

Here we are in the eye of the tornado
Two black holes denying all we know

How can we be alive
When we've already died

Fear of death holds us in place
Or the thought of changing constant pace
White noise turns into black

Still we are in the eye of the tornado
Two blind souls afraid to let go

How can we be alive
When we've already died

Under a sky turned red
At the monolith of the undead
Beneath a ground deep red
At the monolith of the undead

How can we be alive
When we've already died
Track Name: Cydonia
Tell me what’s to gain
In dealing with your selfish pain
Tell me what to reign
Bleeding out for you in vain

No matter how hard I tried to please you
There was always something strange I couldn’t see through
There was something unspoken, so unreal
There was something with I just could not deal

I can’t get past your cold Cydonian stare
You blame me still but I will soon be joining you there

(Cold dead stare) Tell me what’s to gain
(Cold dead stare) In dealing with your selfish pain
(Cold dead stare) Tell me what to reign
(Cold dead stare) Bleeding out for you in vain

Tell me what’s to gain
In dealing with your selfish pain
Tell me what to reign
Nleeding out for you in vain

No matter how hard you tried to seize me
There were always fouls obstructing the almighty
There was something foretoken yet I feel
There was always something for you to conceal

I can’t get past your cold Cydonian stare
You blame me still but I will soon be joining you there

(Cold dead stare) Tell me what’s to gain
(Cold dead stare) In dealing with your selfish pain
(Cold dead stare) Tell me what to reign
(Cold dead stare) Bleeding out for you in vain
Track Name: Counterkarma
Every sound you’ve ever heard
Every sentence, every word
Every scene you’ve ever seen
Everything you’ve ever been

Every hurt you’d ever feel
Every time you’ve yet to kneel
Every molecule of pain and agony
Moves around in cycles
Never tearing free

I can’t wait to figure out finally
What counter-karma has in store for me
The force of fate will do me in with certainty
No one else deserving such a destiny

Something’s crawling back
Something I thought lost

Every lie you’ve ever blurred
Every false excuse absurd
Every single time you’re mean
Everyone you’ve ever been

Every sting you’ll never bear
Every venture still undared
Poetic justice sits and waits to be redeemed

I can’t wait to figure out finally
What counter-karma has in store for me
The force of fate will do me in with certainty
No one else deserving such a destiny

I can’t wait (Something’s crawling back)
Force of fate (Something I thought lost)
No one else (Something’s crawling back)
No one else (Something I thought lost)
Track Name: The Uninvited
Should've known this place would tear us all apart
Coming here has made us fear us from the start
Might have known this face can't hide a shattered heart
All the secrets sworn deterring our depart

Don't let them take me
Don't let them in
Don't let them fake me
Don't let them win

Now the time has come to strip away our masks
In a dying light of lies the fake me basks
The false familiar will ridicule and reave
It's very clear they'll never let us leave

Unnerving masquerade
Fake faces in a sham far too well played
They'll never let us leave
They will not let us leave

Don't let them take me
Don't let them in
Don't let them fake me
Don't let them win

If you see it in the corner of your eye
Then it's all to late to even say goodbye
If you see me taken by that bloody thirst
Do the merciful and see that I die first

Unnerving masquerade
Fake faces in a sham far too well played
They'll never let us leave
They will not let us leave

Should've known this place would tear us all apart
Coming here has made us fear us from the start
The false familiar will ridicule and reave
It's very clear they'll never let us leave

Don't let them take me
Don't let them in
Don't let them fake me
Don't let them win

Don't let them take me
Don't let them in
Don't let them fake me
Don't let them win
Track Name: Them
They're closing in on me
They're catching up, they're drawing near
They're creeping up on me
As they do you need to see
It was never meant to be

Here they come
Here they come
Here they come
Here they come

They're moving in on me
They're coming close, they're almost here
They're surrounding me
It's impossible to flee
Far too late to bend the knee

Here they come
Here they come
Here they come
Here they come

Here they come
Here they come
Here they come
Here they come

Your every cell is screaming where the trail of dead will lead
There is a time to run, there was a time to heed
Your private hell is seeing where those bailed of dread still bleed
The time has come, hope to die before they feed

Your every cell is screaming where the trail of dead will lead
There is a time to run, there was a time to heed
Your private hell is seeing where those bailed of dread still bleed
The time has come, hope to die before they feed

Here they come
They're closing in on me
They're catching up, they're drawing near
They're creeping up on me

They're moving in on me
They're coming close, they're almost here
They're surrounding me
It's impossible to flee
Far too late to bend the knee
Track Name: Dreaming of Dying
Everything good dies here
Even the stars
The misunderstood lie here
We won't get far

Never the truthful fear
Go hide your scars
Everything you hold dear
Gets torn apart

Torn apart
Torn apart

Weather me just this once more
Please let me stay
Never again or before
Please let me stay

Tether me down to hold
My drifting away
Whether down or up
I'm shifting astray

There will be times
Once fallen, you stay beat
Forgetting how
To get back on to your feet

I'm dreaming of dying
When there's nothing to lose
I'm dreaming of dying
When I've used my last excuse

I liked the ripe feeling of her kiss
Especially as she was dead to me
Oh what bliss

I'm dreaming of dying
When there's nothing to lose
I'm dreaming of dying
When I've used my last excuse
