1. Feeding the Machine

An overwhelming thing that couldnít be
That could be this voice, controlling me
Iíll sit alone, not without company
Thoughts that donít pass they reside inside

Feed Feed
Feed Feed

Can it be the voice inside me
Taking control of all that will and will not be
Hopes will be feeding the machine

Always fighting through the days
To make the chance that I must take
Donít live back in yesterdays
For time wonít wait to lead us the way

Iím choking on thought, it flows without sympathy
Driving force from within, no stop
I cannot deny this thing thatís a part of me
So I work for the cause, it just must be

Feed Feed
Feed Feed

Can it be the voice inside me
Taking control of all that will and will not be
Hopes will be feeding the machine

Always fighting through the days
To make the chance that I must take
Donít live back in yesterdays
For time wonít wait to lead us the way

As I look back upon all this in front of me
I understand why it made my mind

Feed Feed
Feed Feed

Can it be the voice inside me
Taking control of all that will and will not be
Hopes will be feeding the machine

Always fighting through the days
To make the chance that I must take
Donít live back in yesterdays
For time wonít wait to lead us the way




2. Contagion




3. No One Can Tell You

Lost - a life thatís lost beyond the hope of turning back
Fate Ė you chose your fate when you walked blindly down that path
Never heed the voice of reason ringing in your ears
Cost Ė youíll pay the cost when the reckoning draws near

Never listen to the truth that stares you in your face
You look and you donít see, but weíll soon see whoís laughing last
Always make the same mistakes
The crime is self deceit, you learned no lessons from your past

Blind Ė you never see the truth before your eyes
Fear Ė youíll feel the fear that keeps you running for your life
Never faced reality but now youíre gonna see
Hate Ė you breed the hate that slowly brings you to your knees

Never listen to the truth that stares you in your face
You look and you donít see, but weíll soon see whoís laughing last
Always make the same mistakes
The crime is self deceit, you learned no lessons from your past

No one knows what you believe
No one can tell you what to see
No one knows your mind like you
No one can tell you

Lost - a life thatís lost beyond the hope of turning back
Fate Ė you chose your fate when you walked blindly down that path
Never heed the voice of reason ringing in your ears
Cost Ė youíll pay the cost when the reckoning draws near

Never listen to the truth that stares you in your face
You look and you donít see, but weíll soon see whoís laughing last
Always make the same mistakes
The crime is self deceit, you learned no lessons from your past

Blind Ė you never see the truth before your eyes
Fear Ė youíll feel the fear that keeps you running for your life
Never faced reality but now youíre gonna see
Hate Ė you breed the hate that slowly brings you to your knees

Never listen to the truth that stares you in your face
You look and you donít see, but Iím the one whoís laughing last
Always make the same mistakes
The crime is self deceit, you learned no lessons from your past

No one knows what you believe
No one can tell you what to see
No one knows your mind like you
No one can tell you
No one knows what you believe
No one can tell you what to see
No one knows your mind like you
No one can tell you




4. Epoch




5. Deconstruct

Been least 40 days and 40 nights since Iíve been found
A dark and empty place that holds one thing and itís me
Held up in this frozen state, Iím stuck and I wonít move
I think but donít think anymore, not anymore

Recently Iíve fallen
To my knees Iím falling

Deconstructing everything that would become of me
Killing any chance that I might have
A chance that I will be the one, the only one to stand
To stand atop my destiny, come laugh with me

Recently Iíve fallen
To my knees Iím stalling

Deconstruct this life
Broken dream is mine
Deconstruct this life
Broken dream is mine

Recently Iíve fallen to my knees, Iím stalling
Taste the fear, itís calling out to me, Iím wanted
Recently Iíve fallen to my knees, Iím stalling
Taste the fear, itís calling out to me, Iím wanted

Been least 40 days and 40 nights since Iíve been found
A dark and empty place that holds one thing and itís me
Held up in this frozen state, Iím stuck and I wonít move
I think but donít think anymore, not anymore

Recently Iíve fallen to my knees, Iím stalling
Taste the fear, itís calling out to me, Iím wanted

Deconstruct this life
Broken dream is mine
Deconstruct this life
Broken dream is mine




6. Odyssey




7. Through Your Eyes (Distant Mirrors)

I canít lie, I see why you are this way
Your feelings released, now youíre blinded by hate
I donít know if youíll change, thatís just your way
Unbearable existence, life in chains

Looking through despair and pain Ė canít you see, canít you see
Looking through your eyes again Ė youíre so blind, so blind
Looking through despair and pain Ė canít you see, canít you see
Looking through your eyes again Ė youíre so blind, so blind

You divide, deep inside, living in vain
You rationalize and you believe all your lies
How can you feel what itís like inside your cage
Unbearable existence, life in chains

Looking through despair and pain Ė canít you see, canít you see
Looking through your eyes again Ė youíre so blind, so blind
Looking through despair and pain Ė canít you see, canít you see
Looking through your eyes again Ė youíre so blind

It wasnít me, still reflecting the walls
It got me going when distant mirrors bent the angled halls

So whoís judgement is right...
With which excuse am I selling tonight?

The more I seem to know, judge and jury
The less my image grows
I may have caught a glimpse of myself in error
Or was it your reflection

Well, thatís what I think
Thatís what I said
Thatís what I meant
So get over it

You beg to differ
So make your case and make it now
The truth is not our own
To twist and spin around

I want to learn from my own reflections
I need to know itís not obscured with your intensions
Not even for a moment

Well, thatís what I think
Thatís what I said
Thatís what I meant
So get over it

I canít lie, I see why you are this way
Your feelings released, now youíre blinded by hate
I donít know if youíll change, thatís just your way
Unbearable existence, life in chains

Looking through despair and pain Ė canít you see, canít you see
Looking through your eyes again Ė youíre so blind, so blind
Looking through despair and pain Ė canít you see, canít you see
Looking through your eyes again Ė youíre so blind




8. Race With Devil on Spanish Highway




9. Visitors

After all these years discoveryís not blind
Unsubstantial fears twisted in my mind
In my mind...

Through my darkest hour, spectral plane empowered
Incandescent light... astral beams at night

They want to take you Ė and try to break you Ė examinate you

Visitors in the darkness
Carry me into the light
Visitors always around us
Have they invaded our lives
Our lives

After all these years discoveryís not blind
Incandescent light... astral beams at night

They want to take me Ė they try to break me - examine, rape me

Visitors in the darkness
Carry me into the light
Visitors always around us
Have they invaded our lives
Our lives

Through my darkest hour, spectral plane empowered
Incandescent light... astral beams at night


They want to take you Ė and try to break you Ė examinate you

Visitors in the darkness
Carry me into the light
Visitors always around us
Have they invaded our lives




10. In Lingua Mortua
