Track Name: The Astronomer
It feels like forever
An eternity spent on a fruitless search
I have seen so much but the meaning is lost
A witness to a grand illusion

Why do I continue?
My age advances but discovery holds
I wish to join the others amongst the starts

Even if we are alone
It will only bring us closer
To search for something yet unknown
We need, only to reach farther

I feel the presence of another
No
Free me from this delusion
We are completely alone

With only light to follow
A guide in this black sea
If only I could reach it
If time would preserve me

Now witness
Your transient nature
A victim of decay

Submit to the reality that you are going nowhere fast

Do I walk this endless road again?
Knowing I will die alone
I can't stand to wait so I will be
A giant for those have yet to be

Don't let mortality stop your ambition
Let it push you further
I want to see us live among
The divinity that I have chased

Even if we are alone
It will only bring us closer
To search for something yet unknown
We need, only to reach farther

With only light to follow
A guide in this black sea
If only I could reach it
If time would preserve me
Track Name: Continuum
Get me out

I the first of few to break free
From the shackles of mortality
A glimpse of divinity
I shall stare at its face
And demand my answers

Demand my answers

With each instance I lose myself as I fall deeper down
I have lost all I was by seeking who I'll come to be
This continuum has taken me
This deity will rise me up
Through this pain

GO

Trapped inside an endless loop
He has bestowed upon me a gift I cannot keep
I only wish to rest
I asked for this, I begged for clarity, yet all is obfuscated

A means to an end
A proof of concept for a flawed design
Witnessing perfection is a burden masked
In cathartic release

These creatures are so blinded, invalid I deny them
A haven and a harbor
*blegh*
Fighting the desire to pass on
I am not dead but merely silent

GET ME OUT

A means to an end
A proof of concept for a flawed design
Witnessing perfection is a burden masked
In cathartic release
Track Name: The Maker
Finally I stare at the faces of those who wish to know my name
Look at me I am here
The creator of all

Laying witness to these false prophets
Turning men into martyrs

For he who brings the flame
By its light, will be enslaved

All mater is helpless to the call of time
Creation is a defiance, see what lies behind
The cold approaches from afar, this is an act of desperation
You have grown to fit this world, yet I have provided another

So far they've come in such short time these children of the stars
Ethereal affinity all reaching from afar
I am the one that puls the string, the tailor of the ties that bind
I only wish they saw each other as divine
I only wish they saw each other as divine

Move on, take flight toward the endless night
In silence I will guide you on
As I am, you will become
If only it could last

Each generation the same
I am unable to protect my creation
What is this curse of fragility
Hopeless
I've done all I can for them
Smothered by my failure
Please forgive me

So far they've come in such short
Time these children of the stars
Ethereal affinity all reaching from afar
I am the one that puls the string,
The tailor of the ties
I only wish they saw each other as divine

So far they've come in such short time these children of the stars
Ethereal affinity all reaching from afar
I am the one that puls the string, the tailor of the ties that bind
I only wish they saw each other as divine
Track Name: The Preserver (feat. Chris Wiseman of Shadow of Intent)
A glimmer of defiance
Shines in their eyes
Despite the looming darkness
They continue on in spite

Although they are alone
They are far from safe
I can only do so much
To stall the cold embrace

The sand will always fall
No matter how tight the grip
My arm outstretched against the tide will snap

An infinite, an endless scape
Only growing larger
Farther away from a central fire
The light of the others growing fainter
The light of the others growing fainter

To see how hopeless this all is
I am losing hope but to whom to I yield?
A non-viable construct
There is a greater force that I cannot see

What deity, would draft an imperfect existence?
Are we destined to die?
This cannot be the end.

As with the maker, I share her strife
A struggle against destruction
Obstinate the coming end

Caught within the fall
Able to proceed
Preserve that which will perish
A goal I cannot achieve

*clears throat*
Track Name: The Ender
Claw at all that breathes
Consciousness of one so low
A wretched form of autonomy

My blithe reaction to
All that gathers
Is to strip it from itself

Arrogant humanity
Suspended alone
in disbelief of their mortality
Compulsion ruled by instinct I roam
Your precious Earth will die your life is not your own

For I will have my way
A fixation I cannot shake
I have my questions but I remain silent
I am slave to my existence

Oh

Blind and senseless
A harbinger that's always present
I am bound to my role a
Titan maddened by its sentience

Frail minded sheep will worship
The Shepard and his dagger

Fading into darkness
A start that's lost its flame

The light will end, the cold will gather
Lyra will play a final note, as we lay in Acheron

So delicate is life
Yet as I blink it ends
A short-term defiance to
The void that approaches

Gravity itself will decay as our cosmic continues to expand
We will all be left with nothing, and I will strike and end this forever
Yet I feel....
Like this cycle is infinite

I am forced to push this stone
Only for to fall again
I am collapsing under this strain

Forced to fall
Collapse
To ash

I am not your savior
I will crush all that there is
You are a means to and to my torment

Fading into darkness
A start that's lost its flame

The light will end, the cold will gather
Lyra will play a final note, as we lay in Acheron

As we lay in Acheron

As we lay in Acheron
Track Name: Reticent(feat. Tomás Baptista of ROME and Evan Swanson)
Reticent, Serenity
A blessing comes before the curse

An austere surrender
Humbled
The pain that comes will signify

This moment
That you curse
This patience of mine is giving up

If only, hope was enough
To warm our gentle sun
Come mourning

An unfamiliar scape
A darkened shadow
This home it feels so strange
Yet there is nowhere else to turn

And there is nowhere else to turn


Our we destined for this end?
Our lives made to rescind
Is there someone out there?
Who will send

Some comfort when, twilight ends

The gift of the moment
An austere surrender
The curse of the next
Serenity
I remain reticent
The gift of the moment
The lanterns are growing dim
The curse of the next
Serenity

I remain reticent
The gift of the moment
An unfamiliar scape
The curse of the next
Serenity

I remain reticent
Track Name: The Death of Beauty
Entropy
Chaos quelled
Inactivity
Forced upon all that remains

The living nature of this material existence
A testament to the myth of forever
The end of beauty
Reality itself has brought itself to this final stillness

Forced upon all that remains

Reality itself has brought itself to this final stillness


Recombine, what's left
Bring back its lost flame

Forcing water out of stone, the struggle between the three
It has left us in perdition
A stalemate between enemies


Recombine, what's left
Bring back its lost flame
(Bring me to the flame)

A last resort, for we are lost
We must clear away the debris
Bereft this land of its failure
Bring on destruction

Matter must be brought together
We will face an unknown consequence
But we entrust our self to death

You have given me all I need
To snap the reigns on this lifeless husk
Something deeper is taking over
I feel as if I am losing control

Go

Decimation of this quasi-void
I will cut the dead flesh away
In an effort to save myself
There is so much to cleanse
I will bring it to a center

I am watching myself fade away
Celestial instant overpowering me
The realization of my goal of destruction
I was blind that I too was a taget

We will all collapse

Entropy
Chaos quelled
Inactivity
Forced upon, all that remains

Forced upon, all that remains
