Track Name: Sphere
Through all time and space
Thoughts through a never-ending maze
Beyond the measures of mind
Within, nothing to find

In oblivion all seems fair
Are there thoughts left in the air?
No, the grass, the green, even the sea
It's all history

Gathering mass and density
Creating infinite gravity
Our remains nowhere to be
Swallow the galaxy

Around the sphere
Our remains all disappeared
We won't be back
Swallowed in black

Every particle completely torn
Never to reform
Morphing into unity
The singularity

Gathering mass and density
Creating infinite gravity
Our remains nowhere to be
Swallow the galaxy

Around the sphere
Our remains all disappeared
We won't be back
Swallowed in black

Into the sphere
Track Name: Last World
Staring at the mental horizon
With eyes towards the past
Inside there's the sun
Long gone since the last war

Living life like a "lower" being
Beneath the surface of the Earth
Trapped beneath, never feeling
The sunset's escaping warmth

Nothing left but memories
The children will never see
Track Name: Surreality
Things can fall into place
But there's still confusion in your face
It's hard to tell this way
But you don't need to understand
To live another day

There are things above us all
No, your mind follows the fall
It's too far, too odd
No, I'm not talking about a god
Just keep following the flow of your thought

Rising above, not after death
Rising above your very own head
Impossible to many of our kind
Impossible is nothing, or everything?
Life, just another paradox
Filled with endless locks
Without the keys
Without we live, without we have to see
Wake up in surreality

I know we may not go down the drain
Today or tomorrow, but someday we will
We seek the need that we don't need
We drink from the chalice of greed
That we think is the chalice of life
To reach the tops unreached
Only to find new lows reached
Not gained immortality
But mastered immorality
Wake up in surreality
Track Name: Sculpture of Flesh
Echoes, the screams of pain
Blood flows, such an evil reign
The innocent, all died in vain
Hell-sent this blackened rain
Signs of life amidst the death
Like a knife every breath
Cuts death into its form
Bodies lay ripped and torn

Sculpture of flesh
Incarnation of evil
Bringer of death
Possessor of free will?
Sculpture of flesh

Toxic waste, Earth decayed
Blind haste, time to fade
Extinction, all alone
Destruction all around
One race, once so divine
No space, out of time
Once bored, now in pain
The final war, the final game

Sculpture of flesh
Incarnation of evil
Bringer of death
Possessor of free will?

What kind of god all-seeing
Would create a human being?
Track Name: Spiritual Killing
Promises, through faith
All is within reach
Hypocrisy, hate
Against other's beliefs

Practice what you preach
Dream of what you teach
Sorrow and pain you feed
It's how you gain your need

Lies, financially fulfilling
Lies, spiritual killing

Ignorance, close your eyes
You don't want to acknowledge
Perseverance, blind leads the blind
Holds tight in his bind

Practice what you preach
Dream of what you teach
Sorrow and pain you feed
It's how you gain your need

Lies, financially fulfilling
Lies, spiritual killing
Lies, hope for the willing
Lies, spiritual killing

Can't sleep?
Count the sheep
Endless flocks
Behind locks
Blind delusion
Like confusion
Leading with laughter
Into the slaughter
Track Name: Trapped In Infinity
Asleep
Awake
Asleep
Awake

Day and night like a dream
Dream and life without seam
Another sunrise, another day
Will it be just the same?

Sunrise
Sunset
Sunrise
Sunset

Spiraling slowly
A circle is what you see
Life's orbit narrows
Not prepared, hollow

Trapped in infinity
Limited to what we see
Potentially anything
Probably nothing at all

Sunrise
Sunset
Sunrise
Sunset
Track Name: Cosmic Horizon
Give me the key to see the mystery
Allow me to be a part of infinity
Make sense in what doesn't make sense
Break through the bends and the ends

Realms, never in our grasp
Trapped, we need to adapt
Always reaching to the unknown
Never knowing will it be shown

Beyond our fantasies
Beyond the galaxies
What could there be
Beyond the cosmic horizon?

I want to touch the sky
To see the unseen light
To do the impossible
To understand every particle

Beyond our fantasies
Beyond the galaxies
What could there be
Beyond the cosmic horizon?

Beyond our universe
Track Name: Out of Place
Searching for supremacy
Predicting the unpredictability
Top minds dedicated to see
Something that shouldn't be seen
Something that could've been

Curiosity, all things we have to know
Questions, nothing can be left unknown
Time, break the limits of protection
Foresee, prevent with drastic solutions

Motions of the essence of time
Unveiling, leaving the future behind
Deceiving, all reason lost in fear
Prevent war with war
Wisdom? Nowhere near
Lost in fear

Curiosity, all things we have to know
Questions, nothing can be left unknown
Time, break the limits of protection
Foresee, prevent with drastic solutions
Information is far from wisdom

Take a look, kill the meaning of life
When you know what you think is right
You will alter the way of your fate
You ignore true life until it's late

It may be that there is no meaning
But even knowledge can be deceiving
In the end you can't find the truth
Even if you kill what life is worth

We have time to waste
Why bend time and space
When things are most in place
When they're out of place

Some things are better not to know
We'll still mess it up somehow
Track Name: Spiral of Decay
Still ruins, no sounds
Time stands still
Nothing left
Just the wounds
Written in history

Take a journey deep
Into the forests and you will hear
A dead nation weep
A whole nation disappear

Through the forests of rain
You can hear the violence and pain
Smothered, everyone falls deceased
Killing with ease, spreading disease
They are now civilized

Life's full of coincidences
Full of beginnings and endings
Unsolved mysteries
Dark prophecies

All this just comes to show
Nothing's fair, and you don't know
How you come to lose your breath
Take a look at history and you know
Our end shall be, inevitably

Cyclic time, eras fading away
Cyclic time, spiral of decay
It's time to pass just like predicted
It's time to face the final sunset
