Track Name: Her Fire
She shivered in the still day
Daylight cold grey
She shivers
She stares
Staring at the stagnant waters
Cloudy, dank caving in
Dark, shrouded mirroring
Mirror pools
Shadow dark cloudy eyes
Staring in shallow waters

She knows, Her Fire
She knows, it’s coming

She hears the ticking time clock
She knows the rhythm rocking
Rhythm Swaying
Rhythm timing
She hears them
She hears them call again
Time to let
Towers fall within
She, she says to
Let it burn
Fierce sparkling
Fantastic fires

She knows, Her Fire
She knows, it’s coming

She feels the need to burn
It all down

Let them all settle in
The things of no control
Let it all burn within
The things you must let go
Track Name: Who's Crying Now
I see your face now
Trying to keep face, how?
But its just slipping away
And I'm slipping away
Away from you
Away from you

Tears are falling
Now you're falling down
Who's crying now?

We used to laugh, how
We used to make up,
Our perfect worlds,
Our perfect worlds,
But it's just slipping away
And I'm just slipping away
Away from you
Away from you
Track Name: Addict
Frightful
Now it’s getting nightfall
And you’re feeling doubtful
Now you’ve got a heartful
And you’re feeling fitful
Stuffing on your mouthful
Now you’re walking careful
Afraid that you’ll be seen

Come on
Now you’ve got you’re hard on
Neurotic masturbation
Sad and sorry self pawn
In your own destruction
No one left to call on
Now too scared to move on
Lost all that you have been

Falling towards the floor
Night lifts to dawn
And if you just keep on
just say goodnight
the curtains drawn
Nothing is left to find, inside
But the shell you called yourself
Just say goodbye
Track Name: Nobody's Home
I’ve given it time, I’ve given you me
I give you my thoughts, my everything
I show you the world
In pictures and sounds
I’ve given you the taste of myself

I’ve given it time, I’ve given you me
I give you my eyes, my ears, my skin
I build you a world
We can discover and play
I paint you a sky to make your stars sparkle in

Nobody’s home
Such vacancy
A soulless stare
I cannot reach
Nobody’s home
I’m dipping in
An empty pool
I cannot swim

Nobody’s home
Nothing to see
Searched everywhere
That I can think
Nobody’s home
Such vacancy
A soulless stare
I cannot reach

I’ve given it time, I’ve given you me
I give you my dreams, my flaws, my sins
I’ve played all the games, to get you to see
I’ve pushed all the places a button can be

I’ve given it time, I’ve given you me
I give you my friends, my anything
I show you the paths that you can create
I give you a key, to your own place

Nobody’s home
Track Name: Choke
We see you hiding in the dark
We see your lying blackened heart
We see right through the games you play
We watch you waste it all away

I curse you fall and fall apart
I curse you know your blackened heart
I curse you fall and fall apart
I curse you feel your blackened heart

Mirror Mirror you see…. you'll see

Choke on the Heart
Choke on the part
Choke on the bone stuck in your throat
Your killing joke
Your piece of pie
Such cherry lies
And masquerades

We see you acting so sincere
We see your mind games played with fear
We see you spreading lies like seeds
We see your virus spread like weeds
Track Name: My Machine
Gears are grinding
Gears are shifting
Hands are winding
Click Clock
Tick Tock
Digital dialing
Levers lift me
Levers levitating
Spark plugs sparking
Sparks now firing
Hydraulic pressure
Building inside
Silicone slipping
Hyper threading
Hyper bonding
Units combine

Pistons firing
Synaptic play
Cylinder spins
Synaptic charging
Dynamic flux
Synaptic discharge
Codes are crashing
Codes are breaking
Codes cracked now
Jacking in
Unauthorized access
Tap into the MetaVerse
Infinite avatar
Wetware interface
Boiling circuts

B.I.T.M.A.P.D.I.S.E.A.S.E.
High rez revelation
Innervate
Energize
Binary verses
Miracle virus
Wired

Chuck metal
Obsolete
Motherboard
Mainframe
Time to jack in again
Aeon assemblage
Aeon flux
The flies in the eyes
The prey is caught

Fractal pie (3.14)
Synaptic sparks
Now self aware
Track Name: Love, Fate and Heartstrings
Not so much fun
The way it pulls upon my heart
I’d like to scream
From the way my life has torn apart
I wouldn’t say
This was the way that I had dreamed
I just don’t care
for the feel of ripping at the seams

And so I fall with the pull of it all
And so I fall from the pull of the call

Such a twist of fate
The way the clouds are cast across skies
The way the strings are played upon my heart

The way it tears me up
My heart is bled and raw
The way I die inside
The way I’d love to hide
And so I fall with the pull of it all
And so I fall from the pull of the call

Such a twist of fate
The way the clouds are cast across skies
The way the strings are played upon my heart
The way I can’t control
Such twist of fate
The things I just can’t know
It’s the twist of fate

The way I just don’t know
Where I even want to go
The way I just can’t see
Where I even want to be
And so I fall with the pull of it all
And so I fall from the pull of the call
Track Name: Tread Softly
For you (I am making our choice)
Of what must be, for me
To let me go
To let me free
A new path is calling
My truth I must walk

So I promise you (With our love upon my heart)
I will
Tread softly
Walk softly
Track Name: Black Ocean
Too beautiful and frail for this world
Some flowers are not meant to be taken
And fall away
Falling into the breeze
Carried by the wind into the Black Ocean

This Dream pulls so strong
A slumber of promise, peace and quiet
The passage calls from the deep
Black Ocean

I know you blossom within me
Blossom within me
Please know I swim those tides for you
I’ll swim for you
I’ll swim for you
I swim these tides for you
And one day, I’ll bring you through

My Black Ocean
My Black Ocean

Am I dreaming?
Is she breathing?
The empty feeling
Where are you tonight?
I wish to show you
Who I’ve grown into
Wish you could see me now
You would be so proud
Track Name: Unconditional
I hold your heart
Within a lifetime
All the dreams
That we share

I free your heart
At the same time
No binds or bars
Hold us here

Unconditional

I bear my heart
Ascend my Soul
I stretch my arms
And I let go
Transparent
Unconditional
I let you see me
Everything

All I am

I shed my skin
And stand in the Sun
In love with life
And so aware

We’re breaking all the rules
Embracing Love
From a place of Truth
Track Name: Trapeze
I am balancing upon
a floating ropewalk
Placing my footsteps
As I close my eyes
Feel my steps
My view I, perceive
A myriad space
Reflecting place
Not stuck in time

And yet in forms of movements
And yet in forms I’m finding
I wanted only in dreams

(pulling inside / dancing outside)

The lights reflect to me
From upon the windowpanes
I dream in galaxies
And move amongst the stars
Embraced by the night
The sky reflects to me
I dream in galaxies
And dance amongst the stars

Upon the coiled rope I walk
I see where my steps are chosen
In this sacred moment
In this space between
I breathe, I love
Perceptions of
Where I am and what I be
Living in This Mortal Coil
Living in This Mortal dream
Track Name: Guillotine
How can I find it in my heart this time to let you in?
Two many faces and closed doors,
no wonder you pretend
All the things, that you said to me,
your words they cut so deep
I’m about to lose my head, you’re a guillotine babe

Can I forgive and heal these wounds,
can I forget, can I undo
Another lie, another bruise
How could you leave me black and blue

The blade it hurts red,
your words cut me in two
I feel the cold edge

You’re a guillotine
You’re a guillotine
You’re a guillotine

The blade it hurts red,
your words cut me in two
I feel the cold edge
your words cut me in two
