Track Name: The Infinity Circuit
Fear in the face of change / Led us to betray our progress / Hold your tongue and risk losing your voice / Or raise the call for revolution / We will stand tall again / We are the ethereal / We are the unfindable / Beneath a burning sky / We watch our heroes die / Why can’t we find a new way there? / Can you save us from ourselves? / You saw us rise and fall / You stood and watched as we lost it all / My own reflection is poison to me / We are the unfindable / Beneath a burning sky / We watch our heroes die / Why can’t we find a new way there? / Can you save us from ourselves? / Redesign our broken lives / Now we’ve found a reason to live
Track Name: Architects
No-one was searching still it has been found / It shows we are alone / An overwhelming urge to succumb to fear / Never leaves me / Now we know the price of giving you our trust / And now it's though / I have been born for a second time / Let the river cleanse your mind / Let the fire purge your soul / Let the screaming offer comfort / Let me consume you / The architects of our time / Never won the hearts and minds / The artefact that I found / Was never lost / Disguise your pride / So we can become enslaved / I will protect you / And guide you through this never-ending hell / Can you really take my side? / If I am good then you are evil / Do you really want to know me / As I know you? / Go tell the master we’re not listening / Show him your chains are no more / Go douse the fires that are burning / You will be victims no more / Give up your life to walk with me / The architects of our time / Never won the hearts and minds / The artefact that I found / Was never lost / The architects of our time / Never won the hearts and minds / The archetype of my design / Is of a god
Track Name: Of Man and Stone
Know that I've been cast aside / From the things that I achieved / And I've been so unsure / Of what it is that I believe / I have come back from a desire to be destroyed / Because of the threat that I won't be remembered / I would be purged from the memories of my loved ones / I refuse to give in so easily / The siege of darkness breaks upon my wall of light / Light that burns / A fuel of man and stone / Father, Mother / I want more than you can offer to me / Don't allow yourself / To fall beyond my reach / Don't believe yourself / It's only truth I teach / Dry your tears / I can save you from your fears / And this sorry pit that man created / To escape duty and power / Power resides where men believe / It's but a shadow on the wall / You will follow where I lead / You will rally to my call / I am nothing but a shadow watching my reflection / Jealous of the colour and perfection / Hoping no-one noticed my changing perception / My reality cannot keep up with my dreams / I am my own desire / A man of love and hate and fear / You cannot quench this fire / Burning your sanctuary of rest / Don't allow yourself / To fall beyond my reach / Don't believe yourself / It's only truth I teach / Don't command yourself / I will lead you all / I am all you need
Track Name: Sanctuary
Run to the darkness / Don’t remain blinded by the light / Run to the darkness / Searching to be found / We pushed ourselves too far / Left stranded by our own ambition / We pushed ourselves too far beyond the limits of our dreams / (Can’t) Won't give up / (Hear) I will find a way / (The) To return / (Truth) To whatever end / (Won't) This prison / (End) That kept me alive / (The) Will wither / (Doubt) And I will not survive / Embrace the silence / Don’t remain smothered by the night / Embrace the silence / Running from the sound / We pushed ourselves too far / Beaten by our clouded vision / We pushed ourselves too far beyond the limits of our dreams / (Can’t) Won't give up / (Hear) I will find a way / (The) To return / (Truth) To whatever end / (Won't) This prison / (End) That kept me alive / (The) Will wither / (Doubt) And I will not survive / I watched this world collapsing / I saw the pieces fall away / I watched my time elapsing / I saw that little still remained / A sanctuary burning / Fiery embers still persist / Still the engines turning / For the yearning to resist / We are, all of us, so alone / Take one last breath my friend / Reach for the end / I watched my time elapsing / I saw that little still remained / We are, all of us, so alone / Take one last breath my friend / Reach for the end
Track Name: Rebirth
Take me away / Take me somewhere new / Give me away again / It is my right to leave / Lifting myself into a dream / And this is my burden / Not to make those same mistakes / We won't fall again / Fall into the sea / As we fell before / One and all / I know we’ll fade away / And I can take that in my stride / And all we want is change / And all we want is life / I will rise above the lights of this life / Don’t show me the way back home / I will rise above the sound / Don’t show me what I don’t want to know / The way back home / I'm stuck in time / Lost in my mind / Without a sign of others / I will not wait to get away / We’ve passed my final day / Still no regrets, I won't look back / On the life that abandoned me / I will rise above the lights of this life / Don’t show me the way back home / I will rise above the sound / Don’t show me what I don’t want to know / The way back home / I will breath again / (Breath again) / My mask of sanity was slipping it's time for a new start / My compulsion to acts of vanity would leave me in the dark / My insecurities prevented me from achieving / My vulnerabilities destroying my potential / Wake up from the dark
Track Name: Hollow Moon
Instrumental
Track Name: Atrophy
This is over / Time to stand shoulder to shoulder / It's not too late to break free / You have no choice / So come stand with me / We still stand tall / Everything we've done we've done for now and not forever / We thought we had the truth that we could live with no plan for the future / Everything we build we build for us and not for others / Now we’re at the mercy of a past that will find and destroy us / I won’t take that thought away / That our panicked reactions led us to this grave / And so we suffer / Tormented and repressed / We struggle against ourselves / And so the prophecy is left in tatters / It's up to us to fill the space / And the delusions that we had are shattered / And so I will forge a way / The sun sets low in the crimson skies below / I won’t wait forever for a saviour to find me / I won’t be the hero / Only then will I be free / (Will I be free) / I won’t take that thought away / That our panicked reactions led us to this grave / And so we suffer / Tormented and repressed / We struggle against ourselves / We still stand tall / Now our plans have failed we are drawn into a state of war / A state of social degradation / I betrayed myself and I betrayed you all / A state of total confrontation / I won’t take that thought away / That our panicked reactions led us to this grave / And so we suffer now / Tormented and repressed / We struggle against ourselves / It’s all just a game
