Track Name: Despair
Inviting incandescence
Inciting dreary essence
Colliding intense emotions
Confiding, frantic notions
Dividing, untimely fashion
Subsiding, forsaking passion
Reciting poems of confusion
Igniting fires of delusion

Despair
Savor the bittersweet
Just stare
Broken beneath our feet
Don't care
Play into the hands of fate
No fair
Love we eliminate
Can we repair
The only thing that brings us together

Consorted efforts wasted
Distorted, cut and pasted
Assorted surreal sensations
Aborted all real elation
Restarted shared affection
Rewarded deep infection
Bombarded, endless thinking
Departed, slowly sinking

Despair
Savor the bittersweet
Just stare
Broken beneath our feet
Don't care
Play into the hands of fate
No fair
Love we eliminate
Can we repair
The only thing that brings us together

Track Name: Remembrance
Call me gently in my dreams
Awake to my own lonely screams
Once again, vicious cycles start spinning endlessly
Lost our bond six years ago
Was it real, or all for show?
Either way I still feel I've been punished relentlessly

Through passing years I find
Your presence haunts my mind
So callous and unkind
(No way to rewind)

Drifting off into a haze
Precious time on wasted days
Still I wonder what I could have done to end this race
Aching ego left to bleed
Blind my eyes from what I need
Win or lose, I'm still here alone, can't forget your face

Through passing years I find
Your beauty haunts my mind
It kills me, so unkind
(No way to rewind)

Branded thoughts of hurt and shame
Was it you or me to blame?
I do all I can to add fuel to this dying flame
Burning photos by my side
Cherry embers won't subside
Your face never faded, my love for you never died

Track Name: High
Slowly walking
Trail along the palisade
Deeply talking
Purge what you can't handle
Calmly flowing
Visions blur and memories fade
Softly blowing
Hold a melting candle

Stare yourself in the heart
Dare go back to the start
Stare yourself in the heart
Tear yourself apart

Too high above town
Too high to fall down
Too high to fly around
Too high to hit the ground

Hopeless thinking
Holding on to razor fences
Helpless sinking
Self-destructive duty
Careless drinking
Pull the chain and flush your senses
Lifeless blinking
You still have your beauty

Stare yourself in the heart
Dare go back to the start
Stare yourself in the heart
Tear yourself apart

Too high above town
Too high to fall down
Too high to fly around
Too high to hit the ground

(Go back to the start
Tear yourself apart)

You will only walk so far
You will only wait 'till it ends
You will only try so hard
You will never stand and defend

Too high above town
Too high to fall down
Too high to fly around
Too high to hit the ground

Track Name: Gravity
Water smashing rocks
Sunlight hits your face
Standing far above your destiny
Feels like you can fly
Gliding with the sky
Dancing full of love with gravity

Gazing from afar
Your wings begin to spread
A leap of faith is all it seems to be
What if you should die
And all before your eyes
Is lost in time because of gravity

Cry on this lonely shore
Why do you swim no more?
Cry on this lonely shore
Try, or do you care no more?

Eternal seconds pass
Just like thirty years
Is it victory or tragedy
You never wondered why
Or bothered to defy
The ever-longing pull of gravity

Cry on this lonely shore
Why do you swim no more?
Cry on this lonely shore
Try, or do you care no more?

Track Name: Farewell
Torn and shattered, betrayed by new reflection
Ego scattered, scarred by self affection
Bruised and battered, shades of your complexion
What once mattered, now detours your direction

Did you ever think for a second that you'd get away with murder
Ever since the day you hurt her?
(She never called me since that day)
Did you ever wonder why you were ashamed to love my daughter
It never phased you when your fought her
(She never came home since that day)

Now you've no one left to bid you farewell
I locked you up and left you to die in this cell
Now you've no one left to bid you farewell
You're all alone until your final cry for help

Lost and wasted, misunderstood by many
Cropped and pasted, a slave to every penny
Days you've wasted, and lonely nights are plenty
Death you've tasted, the tender age of twenty

Did you ever think for a second that you'd get away with murder
Ever since the day you hurt her?
(She never called me since that day)
Did you ever wonder why you were ashamed to love my daughter
It never phased you when your fought her
(She never came home since that day)

Now you've no one left to bid you farewell
I locked you up and left you to die in this cell
Now you've no one left to bid you farewell
You're all alone until your final cry for help

A barely burning candle flickers
Won't make the seasons change much quicker

Track Name: Rain of Mercy
Your hazel eyes penetrate my astral being
You hypnotize, watch me float this placid stream
In paradise, renewal of my energy
I crystallize visions of a perfect dream

Rain of mercy, I watch your shadow face me
Rain of mercy, I feel your ghost embrace me
Rain of mercy, vivid thoughts come racing
Rain of mercy, cherishing the gift I'm taking
Ascending, descending, transcending time
(forever and ever)

Tranquility, feeling warmth against my skin
Stability, fulfill my passions deep within
Ability, to shed new light on where I've been
Agility, flying to a new dimension

Rain of mercy, I watch your shadow face me
Rain of mercy, I feel your ghost embrace me
Rain of mercy, vivid thoughts come racing
Rain of mercy, cherishing the gift I'm taking
Ascending, descending, transcending time
(forever and ever)

Track Name: The Meaning of Life
Vague reminders floating by
Raise unanswered questions, shall I wonder why
Sullen whispers, voices in my mind
Grant me some direction, I'm the only path I find
Basic instincts are my guide
Destiny not seen yet, assured that I've still tried
This endless distance, I've come too far to escape
Honestly I realize this paradise is a dream I shape

Savor sensations until I'm feeling great
Assemble a world that I create
Thirsty for pleasure, a salacious state
I don't live until I choose my fate

Intriguing waters in my sight
Watching graceful rapids, putting up a fight
Barred from sunlight yet guided by the moon
Comfortably impatient, I'm arriving very soon
Thoughts of loneliness subside
Eagerly daydreaming, at night our worlds collide
Brightening visions, exhilarating scenery
Energy replenished, everything is as it seems to be

Savor sensations until I'm feeling great
Assemble a world that I create
Thirsty for pleasure, a salacious state
I don't live until I choose my fate

Thrown into a universe, alone I will remain
Nothing lasts forever, not even what's left to gain
Only give it meaning, branded with a name
No one truly wins if it's all treated as a game
Abandon shame, my life is my own that I'll always claim

Savor sensations until I'm feeling great
Assemble a world that I create
Thirsty for pleasure, a salacious state
I don't live until I choose my fate
