Track Name: Union
Consuming fear is part of the equation
Your reckless days are the cause of their creation

Waves delayed, the greys change
And I could go anyway

Encased in skin too fragile for your purpose
Emotions crumbling, falling from the surface

Waves delayed, the greys change
And I could go anyway

Grey decayed, the waves change
And I could go anyway

So come what may
You’ll see tomorrow
It’s okay to fall apart you’ll see
We’ll take our bones and start again
You’ll never have to search the stars alone

Pale and grey, the waves have changed
I thought I’d know, when you’d fade
Out of phase, our bodies dissipate
But I could go anyway

Bring us union
Tear our hearts out
From the centre
Of our spirit
Track Name: Reanimate
(Eyes that watch the stars fall)
I'm losing my sight, surroundings fade
(Hands that break spirit walls)
Aggression endures, a twist of fate
(Thoughts that lead to disgrace)
A kingdom collapsed under the weight
(Called into this new place)
Plateau in the clouds, we've earned these chains

The chamber comes alive,
Sparks fly, defying the elements,
Faults show, Erasing the image
Could she be a part of the problem
A dream world lost up high,
Death near, devoid of solution,
Pain grows, attacking the system
Is this not the point of letting go?

Time after time
We both tried to appear so
Empty to disguise our lies

An Eclipse of the sun, reanimate,
regain control
We've come too late to sing,
and now the universe can cry

A tear across the sky,
Stars die, the night is awakened,
Crossfade, another existence
Are we changing the melodies in the
Gateway's cosmic signs,
Restart, we're crossing the line again,
Unknown cries from the other side
Have we gone too far to stop the change?

Time after time
We both tried to appear so
Empty to disguise our lies
Tell me what it was you wanted
To fade away? We'll fade away
Forever alive
Track Name: Starseeker
Today, I have seen
The endless reach of the mirror
Hunted for all my life
I should have stayed away from you

Inside, questioning that day,
I couldn't bring myself to go
It's too late to take what's been said,
I guess we'll have to start again

I caught the moonlight that was falling from your eyes
The colour fades away, it's showing me the stories that you hide

Starseeker
Moonchaser

But after all we've seen I feel it's for the best
Count the scars on me, it seems there's not a simple way to rest

Skyhunter
It's over

The words escape me, just how broken I can feel

I'm tired of waiting for someone else to save you
It's time to break apart the shell
And piece together the broken heart and mind
Save the memories, don't forget

I caught the moonlight that was falling from your eyes
The colour fades away, it's showing me the stories that you hide

Starseeker
Moonchaser

But after all we've seen I feel it's for the best
Count the scars on me, it seems there's not a simple way to rest

Skyhunter
It's over

The words escape me, just how broken I can feel


The sky's alive with you, your sun has gone with me

Tears in your eyes and I am Calling you to me

We're Born to die and yet we make the darkest light shine

We die alone
Track Name: Hollow
Cold again, fading in
Caressed by the pain
But I'm not done yet

I'll come alive and pull it together
The minute you say you need this from me

Take that moment, reach back to that day

You'll find me again

Broken by the night
Aggravated to the sight
We are lost among the roots
The echoes in our head

So take that moment, reach back to that day

Find that feeling deep inside the grey

Controlling, confined and cold again

Over and over again
Lost in the haze we pretend
It's more than we are

Don't go there
Don't leave me behind
On the inside
Track Name: Triumph
So you've found your calling, break down the line

So you've found your right to stand down, break down the line

Standing in triumph
You feel alive
Your sun's gone with me
Fading out
Track Name: Parhelion
Paradigm controlling me
Systematic sharp refrain
(We're still waiting for the dawn)

Coloured by uncertainty
Hiding away
It's all I know

Take away
The heart of something that you hate
It's never been too late
Come alive
And you'll be home again

You see, you're something to me
Weighing me down
Paralyzed by comfort

Breathing out
I'm sinking in
To the ground
Below

Take away
The heart of something that you hate
It's never been too late
Come alive
And you'll be home again

My sun burns bright
I'm home again
Track Name: Coalescence
Colliding together
The colour lost all shade
Pillars rising
Broken and decayed

Facing down the root of your dismay
Alone
It hurts to know that

I came so close to the edge
To find you weren’t there
Hands bound you walked away
Somewhere else in time

Wait

Suspecting the worst memeories make us run
And we try to stay alone
But it gets worse to hear the melody that’s running through your head
We are stuck in our ways
The pain that we wish to own
Rest assured it’s a lie

Go your own way
There’s always something to say
Colliding with the comfort of the grey
Let go of them, the tie that bind you to home
Know that I

Came so close to the edge
To find you were there with me
Hand in hand we walked away
Somewhere else in time

Wait

Suspecting the worst memories make us run
And we try to be alone
But it gets worse to hear the melody that’s running through your head
We are stuck in our ways
The pain that we wish to own
Rest assured it’s a lie

I realised there's nothing left in me
The poison in my head has taken root
And I'M SORRY to say
I've taken a stand
Said all I can
Burnt by the flame
And there's nothing left in me
