Track Name: Quiet Desperation
Quiet Desperation

Here I am
Unsteady, yet silent
Inconsistent
I’m peaceful when I’m violent

Always been
This mind is crowded
Unattainable
My consciousness is clouded

Tell me I’m a bad influence
That makes sense

There’s no use trying to control me
Believe me, I’ve tried
Track Name: Hover Over
Hover Over

Oh I
I thought we chose to part
Or was it just life?
Oh no
After all this time, all this time

Oh, still you hover over me
Like a cloud, clouding everything around me

I admit I’ve wondered, wondered endlessly
Where do we go now?

After all these years, all this time, all this time

Did I go too far?

After all these years, all this time

Did I go too far?

Oh, still you hover over me
Like a cloud, clouding everything around me

I admit I’ve wondered, wondered endlessly
Where do we go now?

After all these years, after all this time, all this time
Track Name: Goodbye Saturn
Goodbye Saturn

I foresee a tragedy
Can’t find my way back into myself
My mind is gone
I am lost and so alone

You tried to make me believe
I’d never make it on my own
But you were wrong
You were so wrong

Now I can see what I could be
So clearly, right in front of me
But still I have to wait
Cause time is not my friend

It’s just another trick
It’s just a lie, it’s all just in my head
Or just another stab in my back
Is this reality
It’s just another trick
It’s just a lie, it’s all just in my head
Or just another stab in my back
Is this a tragedy
Track Name: Tragicomic Existence
Tragicomic Existence

Every night I’m staying awake
While everyone else is dreaming away
Everyday I’m falling in love
Cause it keeps me alive, gives me something to live for

What a ride, had to lose my mind
to see myself from the outside

And I’m counting the stars
And I’m drying my tears
Cause you’re killing my dreams
But I’m facing my fears

No more wasting my time
Got a long way to go
To find the magic inside
To where I’m most afraid
to go
oh

I got my head in the clouds
Waiting year after year
There’s no stopping the rain
And I just can’t stay here

Is it all in my head
When the feeling’s so real?
Don’t believe what I see
But I believe what I feel
Track Name: Drowning
Drowning

Everything is meaningless when you're alone

Everything is colorless when life is gone

I choose to drown

Cause I can hear you underwater

I can hear you underwater

I feel like I'm lost in the dark

Trying to tell colors apart

I choose to cry

Cause I can see you crystal clear

As I shed my tears

Washing all my fears away

Everything is meaningless when you're alone

Everything is colorless when life is gone

I choose to dream

Cause I can touch you in my mind

I can touch you in my mind

I feel like I'm colorblind

Failing to paint what's in my mind

I choose to fly

Cause I can feel you in the atmosphere

I can feel you

It's as if you were here
Track Name: Lost in Translation
Lost in Translation

Hey you in the mirror, can you tell me who you are
Hey you from the future, tell me how you got this far

Cause I can’t
I can’t….

Reading when I’m dreaming, words keep changing on their own
Chasing words for meaning, I am trapped in right or wrong

And I can’t…
I can’t…

I can’t bring myself to say
what I can’t make my own eyes see
I can’t make you understand
a language none of us can speak

Somewhere someone’s reaching for me
Is it me or someone else?
Some time between then and now
I lost the meaning of what this is for
Track Name: Limbo
Limbo

Please wait for me
We’ll be together soon
And before we
know it this hell will be through

Please don’t be sad
I am always with you
Please don’t be mad
I never meant to leave you

Waiting for a sign
Waiting endlessly and I’m
Thinking all the time
Overthinking everything

Soon you will be here
I will hold you in my arms
We won’t be afraid
Of leaving the past behind

I will say goodbye
To the one I used to be
I will leave behind
Everything I always knew

Goodbye my friend
Goodbye my lovely friend
Call it a night
See you in another life
Track Name: Colors
Colors

If I fail to walk
Will the grass beneath me
Start moving
Taking me somewhere far away?

If I fail to talk
Will you look into my eyes
And start reading
Everything I wanted to say?

Time is not the same
Anywhere I go
It goes fast and slow

Colors come and go
(Cause you're the one who understands me)
Whenever I stay
(And you never judged me)
From dawn to nightfall
(And I miss you so… How could I have let you go?)

If I fail to dream
Will the stars above me
Start fading
Stealing all the light away?

If I fail to awake
I'll live through my memories
They'll capture me
Taking me towards you

And it’s sad
How it ends so soon
Anywhere I go
It goes fast and slow

I'll be
Under the sky (Either alone or with you)
I’ll be
Color my life (Either alone or with you)

Color my life
Track Name: Under the Moonlight
Under the Moonlight

Eyes always find other eyes
And you found mine
Even in the darkness

I have never flown so high
Without losing my mind
To the darkness

Time was fading
And our souls were
shining in the night

You were in me
I became you
Under the moonlight

I was reaching out to you
From the other side
Letting go of everything
with nothing left to hide

But I was scared, I was scared
of losing myself instead
As time was fading under the moonlight

And I was scared, yes I was scared
Scared to lose myself instead
But I went ahead
Track Name: A Fundamental Transformation of the Psyche
A Fundamental Transformation of the Psyche

I am on my way
I’m gone
So long

No one in my way
I’m done
I’m stronger than I thought
Stronger than I was before

Unapologetically free
You are me and I am what you see
I am you and I am what you see

I am on my way
Goodbye
Don’t cry

Nothing in my way
It’s mine
I’ve made up my mind

Unapologetically free
You are me and I am what you see
I am you and I am what you see

I am on my way
I’m gone
So long
I am on my way
Goodbye
Don’t cry

No one in my way
I’m done
I’m strong
Nothing in my way
It’s mine
I’ve made up my mind
Track Name: Rising
Rising

Walking through darkness, it seemed
Shadows lingered in your dreams

Break all the silence inside
Sing for the night and the sun will rise

Free from the burden
that was dragging you down
Bringing you down

Drown in your sorrow no more
I'm right outside the door
Left all my fears behind me

All my fears behind me
Hoping you would find me

Living too long in a dream
Half awake, half asleep

But you made me feel alive
So alive I could fly

Free from the burden
that was dragging me down
Bringing me down

Drown in your sorrow no more
I'm right outside the door
Leave all your fears behind you

All your fears behind you
I have come to find you

Sing to awaken the mind
We will rise, flying high
