Track Name: Clay Heart
Machines, but we are flesh
Machines, but we are flesh

With no tolerance for errors or time for mistakes
We're born into an era of contempt

For what are we all?
Pawns in another man's game
For what are we all?
Clay awaiting another man's hands

Will you settle for the simple truth or dare to question the very structures and rules?
Set to keep you in place
Break free from your earthly bounds

Enigmas, isn't it what we all are?
Unique and diverse from the start
Enigmas, isn't it what we all are?
Enigmas, isn't it what we all are?

No acceptance, simply arrogance

For what are we all?
A blank script awaiting ink and words
When the question is asked were you an author or the beholder?
A canvas awaiting the strokes of time
When the question is asked were you the painter or the beholder?

We were born to fight, not to follow
The state of life is only contemplated by the fear of death, of death
Were you a painter or a beholder?

Enigmas
Enigmas, isn't it what we all are?
Innocent and curious from the start
Enigmas, isn't it what we all are?
Enigmas, isn't it what we all are?
Track Name: Earth Destroyer
Polluters, destroyers
We're mortals, yet we kill everything
Exploiters, predators
In denial, we harvest every grain

Mother, life giver, restore hope for the hopeless
Blessed are we, the children who ignore
Rejuvenator, earth healer, pray for the faithless
We chose fire and brimstone


I've made my choice
I've made my choice

Everything our hands touch turn to stone
Drowning in quicksand, have you made your choice?
The only way out is to conform
Rise and see the sun once more

Bearing a crown of thorns
Our touch is violent as the ocean tide
A voice fierce as a lion's roar
We're vicious as desert storms

Flawless creations
We hold ourselves in such high regard
Minds as mountains
We can't tell right from wrong
Minds as mountains
We can't tell right from wrong



I've made my choice
I've made my choice

Everything our hands touch turn to stone
Drowning in quicksand, have you made your choice?
The only way out is to conform
Rise and see the sun once more


Earth destroyer
We're all earth destroyers
Earth destroyers
Track Name: Eye To Eye
Hollow-eyed glare
Dead eyes gazing deep into my soul
Words of sorrow spill from the mouth
A face without courage, a face without hope

Faithless, this man he is ruthless
An empty persona drained of dreams
Faithless, he carries a frozen heart
Ruthless, his mind is poison

And so, I face him eye to eye
And so, I tell him these words
That have been lingering for so long

I am not dead
Thoughts of giving in
But I want to feel
Sing my song to make me live
For every ounce of doubt I carry
Sing with me until I bleed no more

The road I walk seems to lead to nowhere
A heavy heart and broken thoughts
So this is how I feel without the support of light
Day or night is a worldly thing
When the gift of sight is taken from you

The pitch black is my only companion
It guides me into the unknown

I am not dead
Thoughts of giving in
But I want to feel
Sing my song to make me live
For every ounce of doubt I carry
Sing with me until I bleed no more

I refuse to drop dead
Thoughts of raising up
Because I want to live and feel
Sing my song to make us live
For every ounce of doubt we carry

We sing together until we bleed no more
We sing together until we bleed no more
Track Name: Dusk/Dawn
When darkness creeps near
And night looms above
At the edge of the horizon
And the gloom stalks every shadow
We cover near our well-known light

We are blind and frightened
Of what the darkness might hold
What defense do we have against the terror of the unknown?

A flickering flame
Our hope, our shield
That’s what keeps us warm
From dusk till dawn

Are lives set in stone?
Is fate our only path?
Are we free, how do you know?
Tell me, how do you know?

A web of questions
Glimmering in the night
Moonlight’s touch
On a philosopher's mind

A gentle wind blows
The leaves speak in tongues
The mist lies deep
And thoughts go mad

Fearful of the dawn
Another day of mistrust
But we carry the small source of warmth
That’s what keeps us all warm
From dusk till dawn

Have you listened to the words I bring?
Did you take them to heart?

There is no sadness
No sadness in love
You can’t have the key to every lock
The key resides deep down in your mind

The true source of life is those close to you
And the song of passion pulsing in your chest
Take heart!
Take heart!
