Track Name: Endeavours
A purpose is key
Who am I supposed to be?
A product of impulse
Interior self defeat
Understanding, repurposing
As worthless as I've been
I'm prepared for what uncertainty brings
Track Name: Pursuit
Secrets, be honest
Where are they hidden?
Are they locked away in a recess of your mind?
I'll uncover the truth
Whether or not I like what I find
I'm looking to rebuild an altered scene
What will I find if not my wildest dreams?

Creation
Begging me to indulge

And if I leave, a part of me is left behind
If it weren't for following paths left for wanderers
I would die by design

Don't question every step of the way
Interpretation of fear

Navigate to the center
Don't question every step of the way
Losing the grasp of sanity
As I watch the everything change
To find answers
My mind will question what is right or real
But after all is said and done the truth must be revealed

I've only been wasting away

Time is wearing thin
I'll never know how correct my choice is
A purpose is key to enhance the way we live

I'm looking to rebuild an altered scene
What will I find if not my wildest dreams?

Creation
Begging me to indulge

And if I leave, a part of me is left behind
If it weren't for following paths left for wanderers
I would die by design

Interpretation of fear
Track Name: ARBTR
Mastery, simplicity, chaos and order in harmony
Mind set, memory racing, without a clue of who to be
So far I've felt no need to reach for strength
Stricken with opportunity
My end is drawing near, but I fear I can't complain

Arbiter, my judgement calls for deepest concern
How would it feel to be cast and left astray, knowing you cannot return?

Understand, my plight bears heavily on me
I ponder the depths of torment aimlessly

Well, this has become a wasteland
One I've wandered time and time again

So far I've felt no need to reach for strength
Stricken with opportunity
There is no difference
From fact to uncertainty

I'm calling to reason with doubt
My mind is set
My memory is racing
And I don't know who I am or who I'm supposed to be

Merely hanging by the edge of my conscience
My mind will change, I don't know what my response is
Time and time again, I cannot decide
Whatever happens I will show you
Signs of life

So far I've felt no need to reach for strength
Stricken with opportunity
My end is drawing near, but I fear I can't complain

Arbiter, my judgement calls for deepest concern
How would it feel to be cast and left astray, knowing you cannot return?
There is no difference between us any longer
We return from uncertainty only to make ourselves stronger
Track Name: Transparency
Seeking for what was promised
Only to maintain a regret for my choice
In panic, forced to remain
All this time, I was misguided
A turn of events, indeed
A product of impulse

Picking up where I began
Too distraught to try again
Where has common sense retreated?

Inaccurate viewing of oneself
A picture with no reference
Undoing passion, narcissistic energy
Eliminate disease

Impersonal
Discerning words
Be honest, are you prepared?
Connect within
Maintain direction
Is it your desire to be scared?

All this time, I was misguided
A turn of events, indeed
A product of my impulse
A chance to see the wrong in me

Seeking for what was promised
Only to maintain a regret for my choice
In panic, forced to remain
All this time, I was misguided
Track Name: Process
Slumber is labored
Strength is abolished
Persistently hindered
Delaying the progress
Counterproductive
Progressively honest
I'm a reduction
Born from the chaos

Defective modern machine
Interior operation is self defeat
A laceration, a repercussion of
Determination, across a void of incognizance

In sleepless labor, I find myself growing weaker

It takes a lot to wait
And I am willing to negotiate
What have I become?
I'm nothing to anyone

In denial, yet I'm ascending to grasp at closure
I'm struggling inside my head
Will I desert the road I've chosen in lack of comfort?
Or will I continue to regret?

Mechanical intrigue
Memories fade fast
A fire within me
Burning my own path
I've become stranded
Without any patience
An altered mind space
Practically eyeless

I fail to grasp
The energy inside of me is almost worthless
Matter over mind

It takes a lot to wait
And I am willing to negotiate
What have I become?
I'm nothing to anyone

In denial, yet I'm ascending to grasp at closure
I'm struggling inside my head
Will I desert the road I've chosen in lack of comfort?
Or will I continue to regret?

What have I done?
I fear I cannot trust anyone
Matter over mind
Track Name: Augmented
In lashing out
Discerning words create the feeling of concern
We adapt to the earth of burden
In another time
The world, recalculated slowly
I walk this earth and I move on entirely inside the world I hold

Move on freely and hold your head up high
You carry burdens piled until they reach the sky
Where hopes and dreams move on

In time, one must learn to carry on
Oh reach, find, face your fears until they're gone

As I wander, carelessly, I feed on the world
My soul is uplifted
Tragedy becomes my escape
And I will seek safety

In lashing out
My burdens will obtain a reason for their cause
My actions aren't helping at all

I walk this earth and I move on entirely inside the world I hold
Track Name: Design
So inaccurate, so mistaken and so blind (I'm lashing out)
I can see past the reflections of my deeds
Finally come to terms, engage in sanity
And breathe in the freshest air
And I'm becoming calmer, day by day
Embracing purpose to redesign again

We evolve into a state of higher beings to transcend
All expression will explain the solid structure built within
Whatever happened to strife? Whatever happened to understanding?
The answer lay inside all along, but I'm alive somehow

A newer path is unfolding now
So, I'm taking steps to relax
My mind can rest from exposure to stresses
And I can finally get back on track
Weakness is no longer a factor
While learning to react
Douse my regrets in forgetfulness
And begin to pick up slack

Maintain a distance from a haunted dream
Lock into a new goal and rediscover what purpose means

A tattered plane, resolved and clean
Understanding, repurposing

Order remains evasive, to say the least
Yet I've wandered long enough to recognize defeat
Closure explains creation of clearer skies
Obtaining the truth inside

Disappointment is merely a rhythm involved in the creative process
Filter all emotion, re-examine and discard of the excess
I'd rather move on than writhe in nonsense
Adequately equipped in consequence

Order remains evasive, to say the least
Yet I've wandered long enough to recognize defeat
Closure explains creation of clearer skies
Obtaining the truth inside

I washed away a part of my reflection
Just to see clearly what I must decide
Somewhere within me I found a new direction
When I viewed myself with unbiased eyes

I'm sick of waiting
Track Name: Reflective
With one erase, I'll be whole again
Until then, I'll mutter my longing and regret
A continuous cycle of ridicule
I'll be haunted by what I cannot forget

What do you have to do with me?
Or am I you while you are free?

Seeing is believing
I'm aware of myself again
Maybe I'm not so distraught right now
Or maybe I am

Maybe I am

Worthless as I've been
Mistaken for perished
Disaster has stricken me
And all that I cherish

Take one look at yourself and grip reality
What's your excuse now?
Where is it you're hiding this time?

Prove your worthiness to be all that I strive to become
Understating, understanding what actions must be done
Redirecting your purpose
Don't trust secrets, be honest
Within your being you're holding the rumored ache of feeling

But, again, what am I to the deafening roar of the universal mind?

How many of my questions go unanswered by deafened ears?
The past is gone, yet I have come to find myself across the years
I will not sleep, I will not rest, until I hunt and face my fears
My thoughts dissolve, the trail is cold, the ghosts won't even disappear
Unless I've changed my mind again the truth will be so sweet to hear
Involved in my insomnia, the block is gone, my ending draws near

I can't stand the fact of where I am
My self-awareness strengthens
Maybe I'm not so distraught right now
Or maybe I am

Maybe I'm just another struggle
A statistic in the machine
Regardless of status I burn through solutions
Until aware of what purpose will come to mean

Take one look at yourself and grip reality
What's your excuse now?
Where is it you're hiding this time?

Seeing is believing
I'm aware of myself again
Maybe I'm not so distraught right now
Or maybe I am
Track Name: Desist
I'm parting ways, dissolving through deceit
And, if I may, I'll correct the incomplete
I'm asking myself to deny
One instance, a chance to redesign

Where was common sense? Where was my mind when this began?
I've waited too long to identify this difference

Unable to decide
When did I begin to lie?

I'm facing choice to act upon disease
To destroy the part that feels defeat
Why do I feel so alone?
My mind prefers to roam

I thought I'd take time to erase your existence
But when have I been fine living in ignorance?
Disaster follows me where I go
I thought that you should know

I'm facing choice to act upon disease
To destroy the part that feels defeat
Why am I trapped, why am I alone?
My mind prefers to roam
