Track Name: Lost Empire
I still remember when the light shown down on us
I held my mother’s hand and through all the fuss I watched her go
Into the sky she went and I didn’t understand
She had looked down on us, guarding our ancient land
These new arrivals could help this tired land
10000 years and I don’t understand
Though time advances on, we stay in this globe of life
I sensed a new dawn when he and his crew arrived,
I did not know they sought the power source
they watched it take me in
A powerful life force, they sought to harness it
These new arrivals could destroy this tired land
10000 years and I don’t understand
Track Name: Infinite Eyes
You’re putting on a show today
and I know you shouldn’t care, but it’s true
We break apart your body 'til we can’t see you
Everyone does it, so now you know
And if you’re not the subject, then tough luck
But then some go too far and stalk you to your car
And if the subject you are, then once again tough luck
We’re putting on a show today
and If you so much as not care, then how dare you
We can’t help but feel brave
We’re animals in suits
People yell at you 'cause you exist
and Watch you live your life, it’s a can’t miss
How do you leave your house without a hazmat suit?
To protect yourself from the toxic pursuers
It must be pretty hard being a threat to who you are by being yourself
It must be pretty hard being a threat to who you are
and they say it’s your fault
You’re taking all the blame today
for things out of your hands,
It’s on you
The things you’re victim to, they say are done by you
You’re your own person not a dessert
But no one really cares, take off your skirt
Track Name: Heroes with Guns
I have to make the right moves,
I have to watch my step and what I do,
'Cause heroes with guns are on the loose,
If I die young, make sure everyone comes to my funeral,
If I get shot down, try to get them found responsible,
They could strike me down at any time they choose,
I should stay indoors and hope they don't break in,
They act on a hunch and end you now,
If I die young, make sure everyone comes to my funeral,
If I get shot down, try to get them found responsible,
I'll walk around in a bulletproof suit,
And maybe then I'll survive when they shoot,
He'll go home for dinner after he ends a life,
His family swears he's not a bad guy
Track Name: Desiderium
This world is a trap and I can't seem to leave its brace,
All that I want to see is the stars as Earth drifts away,
I can stay in this troposphere prison if I must,
I will wait one thousand years until the right time comes,
I'll watch Earth become a dot,
But a memory that I'll skim the rim of,
If I ever don't feel grateful for the present situation I'll be in,
I will wait one thousand years until the right time comes,
But if you'd seen what I'd seen,
you'd be yearning too because the world is not enough,
I remember a thousand years ago,
I was caressed by a nebula's glow,
Now it's starting to fade, It was so long ago,
But you'll see it too, I'll make it so,
You'll skim the rim of infinite belts,
I'll see to it,
You'll float through a newborn system,
And sing with a choir of your otherworldly brothers and sisters,
You'll never need to question your existence,
Out there's where we belong
Track Name: Hypnotist
We watched as he transformed them,
They gave up their wills to absorb him,
They became their own shadows,
Never to remember except within their dreams,
We watched them express pleasure at a profound level,
at his command,
Something that I'd never seen,
We wear consciousness like a coat that we take off every night,
Our dreams become our realities,
then they leave us when the day arrives,
We watched as he transformed them,
They gave up their wills to absorb him,
They became their own shadows,
Never to remember except within their dreams,
Isn't it sad?
I can barely remember, but some at such values to me!
And now they're faded images,
memories of memories.
