Track Name: Essence Of Greed
Adrift in a sea of confusion
Against the tempting delusions
I'll try to find myself tonight
Oh those deepest depths of night
Deep thoughts attack the mind
Trapped in the constant lies of your kind
The face of the world has turned
All fucking existence burned

[Chorus]
I'll give it all
To watch you fall
Essence of greed
Tonight you bleed

Time calls forth to the creature living deep inside of me
From my heart you will cease to be
My trust lies on the ground broken and abandoned
The day that I'll rest is the day I get revenge

[Chorus]

Solo - A. Pevny
Solo - D. DeCicco

Adrift in a sea of confusion
Against the tempting delusions
I'll try to find myself tonight
Oh those deepest depths of night
Deep thoughts attack the mind
Trapped in the constant lies of your kind
The face of the world has turned
All fucking existence burned

[Chorus]
Track Name: The Delusionist
Placed here, gloomy atmosphere
Salvation near, No No
Left here, ponder the despair
Certain? Not anymore
One day, I'll leave this place
This place so timeless
I gave, and you brought me here
But still I feel, no, not anymore

What is the origin of this
This ancient wasteland
Descend, I know I must fall
This end will come for you all

If you saw me at the edge of the earth
Would you save me?
Would I be saved? No

Solo - A Pevny

Betrayed, one day I'll return
All remorse now torched and burned
Slander, lies, embers will rise
Asperse my name for your own gain

If you saw me at the edge of the earth
Would you save me?
If you saw me at the edge of the earth
Would I be saved?
So you brought me to the edge of the earth

Solo - D. DeCicco
Solo - A Pevny

If you saw me at the edge of the earth
Would you save me?
When you see me at the edge of the earth
Just say goodbye
Track Name: Beyond Earth's Shadow
Distorted world my eyes tell me what I see
Why does my mind portray things differently
Can't make sense of this life I'm confined inside
The shade from sunlight longing to find
Change is in the air and everyone has had their share
A road untraveled is calling me
The door is open wide and you can see the other side
One step away

I reach out this one's for you
With life you can't be through
The guilt is seething, the scars re-bleeding
I'll look out for you

With danger approaching
lurking all around you
A constant battle day by day against the truth
Entombed in the hands of your disease
Like an insect trying to break free
This world as you know it now runs black and cold
Where the fire that burned went its unknown
Days and weeks now merge into one
Lost, but you still head on

[Chorus]
My friend, illuminate
Subside the grief and sorrow
My friend, others shine
You’re not alone, beyond earth’s shadow

Solo - A. Pevny

I reach out this one's for you
With life you can't be through

[Chorus]

Solo - D. DeCicco

[Chorus]
Track Name: Without Wings
Hold on, I can find you there
Another night I am spared
This life, so demanding
Lost dreams, fade, collapsing

Deep in the woods you can find me
Under the stars

[Chorus]
Moving on, you've closed your eyes, night skies are hollow and so am I
All this time passing by, without wings we'll learn to fly
Summer winds, take my mind
In worlds parallel I am alive
These thoughts of you won't subside

Hold on, I will find you there
Another night I lay impaired
Sudden change of terrain
From your mind will i ease away

Deep in the woods you can find me
Under the stars

[Chorus]

Solo - D. DeCicco
Solo - A. Pevny

[Chorus]
Track Name: Deadheart Of Winter
Echoes travel through desolate lands
My desperate pleas for an escape, Frigid blood won’t cease this heart, My soul you cannot
suffocate,
So enticing seduction strikes
A game goes on inside your head
Unable to perceive deception
This unforgiveness won't break or bend

The air is cold...just like you

Choke upon your lust
As my hand lightly surrounds your throat
I've wandered through this broken trust
The dark inside has been provoked

Running through my tribulations
Should have known to heed the sign
Tunnel vision, the end is near
I was just the next in line

Oh and this river is now running dry
Oh and your world is running out of time

[Chorus]
Cold, damned, broken, disappear
Blinded now by the glare
Let the snow fall through the air
Let it fall through the air
Let it cover my despair

As I wait for the coming solstice
These trails all lead me back
To the grounds where I've been stranded
I see you through a sky of white
You laugh at my every move
My pain is your entertainment
These glass walls I'm imprisoned in

Oh and this river is now running dry
Oh and your world is running out of time

[Chorus]

Solo - A. Pevny

The air is cold...just like you

Oh and this river is now running dry
Oh and your world is running out of time

[Chorus]
Track Name: The Code
Miles of silence, but teeming inside
Elemental fracture, yet a flourish of life
Evolution seen through windows of the past
Forged in the mountains, into the vast

Mental vortex movements, humanity do I love or despise?
I'll burn it all down for life to re-emerge
Lost beneath forgotten plains, five
billion years of constant change
From the dark and forbidden waters life will re-emerge

Come with me, the sacred ground awaits your energy
Come with me, your altered mind awaits the cleansing
Staring into your eyes, I feel your pain
I know you can't feel mine but I'm the same

Back to life’s own origins, throw
contradictions to the winds
Mysteries bind while ignorance feeds you lies
Someday, I'll walk the ends of earth, and I will try to find myself
The origin of our spirits lay within this path

[Chorus]
Son, I challenge you to find me, the answers are within yourself
Son, before we disperse I have to let you know, One day you'll find your place in the universe

Fire, ignite the tree of life, engulfing all negligence inside
I'm sorry for breathing air in a corrupt world
Evil roots now whisper words, let every branch crash and burn
I guess the innocent never had a say

[Chorus]

And everything is running still around me
In a meditated state my mind drifts away
The weight of the world is surpassing my limitations
The stars begin to fall from the sky... Is this the final time?

Solo - D. DeCicco

Unlock the code

Son, my time has come, the threads of dreams have come undone, I am lost, I'm now cold
Son, before we disperse I have to let you know, One day you'll find your place in the universe
Track Name: Wade Through Flames
Release me from this hell
For I am far too drained
Trapped in my darkest hour
Is death my only escape?

The dawn is creeping in
Another sleepless night
The dark diminishes
Where is your guiding light?

[Chorus]
Find me, lost faith, for I have lost my way
Obscured vision burns as I wade through flames

Burning in this hell
My life deteriorates
Exalt my fallen soul
The dark saturates

The dawn is creeping in
Another sleepless night
The dark diminishes
Where is your guiding light?

My life deteriorates
The dark saturates

[Chorus]

Solo - D. DeCicco
Track Name: The Stains Of Time
Guest Solo - Anthony Gonzalez

Change of landscapes dissolving life
As fast as the years go by
Everything that I've once adored
Has all passed on through that door
Each day I seek fulfillment
In this life, forever distant
In pain I ache for a return, these memories burn

Strong winds of change have left me standing here alone
Amongst all this broken hope
Faces pass by in a hollow sky
Return each moment in this life journey
Forward into time, may the shattered pieces unearth and align

[Chorus]
Deeply ingrained are the stains of time
vast ocean of memories fill my mind
Can't help this I have to try
Now face this fear, don't let this die

How much more can you take?
How much more can you take from me?
How much more must i believe?
How much more can I be deceived?
Plagued with unsolved eerie dreams
Nothing's ever as it seems
Hourglass open your wings, soar into the night sky

Strong winds of change have left me standing here alone
Amongst all this broken hope
Faces pass by in a hollow sky
Return each moment in this life journey
Forward into time, may the shattered pieces unearth and align

[Chorus]

Solo - D. DeCicco
Solo - A. Pevny
Track Name: Eternal
Time will always bring you back to this place, a situation you can't bare to face
Reality recedes into hollow horizons
Feeling long gone, heart turned into rust
Once around the world, try to collect what remains
Fractured abound to the decades of curse, can't be reversed

I know it's unrelenting, it's ok, it's alright, unearth the key
Far beyond those doors within the ruins in you mind, the temple of dreams

A chemical process is wearing you down
A such obsession all will drown
Inside these walls I've built I will seal all my thoughts, back to me they still crawl
A whirlwind of memory's in your head
You'll chose to ignore them instead
Like whirlwinds of memories in my head, I'll chose to ignore

[Chorus]
I've watched you take your last breath
Eternity, flow through me

A name carved into the great healing tree
From above to the grave descend your leaves

Years go by, I'll be unheard, I will be unseen
The blink of an eye, the great concept of time, a depth unknown to the pandemic mind

I know it's unrelenting, it's ok, it's alright, unearth the key
Far beyond those doors within the ruins in you mind, the temple of dreams

[Chorus]
I've watched you take your last breath
I've watched you burn at the waters edge
Eternity, flow throughout the stream
Eternity, flow through me

Solo - D. DeCicco
Solo - A. Pevny
Solo - A. Pevny

Fate calls out to me
I can barely breathe
Fate calls out for me
Lost cause flying free

No
In these walls, locked inside
Strength and mind both defied
Bring me back in time
