Track Name: Into the Mind's Womb (Overture)
Instrumental(Overture)
Track Name: Hall of Mirrors
In this lifeless room I walk
Wonder in this soulless hall
Look upon a mirror but I can’t see my face
Just a fainted image that slowly fades away
I move away and try to look again

In a moment I realize this hall is just my own life
All the mirrors represent each and every single change
In this Hall of Mirrors, I don't know who I am
I look for my reflection, but I see another one.

I try but I can’t seem to find myself
A shadow of what once i really was
I hide behind this mirror; can you see my reflection?
Or do you see what truly lies behind?

Hearing voices everywhere trying to lead me their own way
Still as empty as I can be, but these whispers still haunt me
I must break and end this hollow lie
Walk away and follow my own path

When I gaze upon this barren room
I realize all that I’ve lost
I will escape this hall, can’t take it anymore
It’s time to run away and find myself

I try but I can’t seem to find myself
A shadow of what once i really was
I hide behind this mirror; can you see my reflection?
Or do you see what truly lies behind?
Track Name: What Lies Beyond
Blind!
Unaware on what's around you
Living under your lies
Deceived!
By your sense of self regret.

Controlled!
By a false sense of reality
Binding all your thoughts

Wake up!
You are completely unaware.
War, Lies, Destruction
Is the air that we breathe
What has this world come to?
We destroy humanity

Break out of your hollow shell
and take a look around
Life goes by in the blink of an eye
Make sure to leave your mark


If you look at all else
What do you see?
Your life is just a fragment
Of a wider reality.

Stare!
The problem in the eye
and regain all control
Look!
Beyond your own world and you can hear the cries
We are architects of destruction
We are free but we still live confined.


Rise Beyond
Awaken from your narrow truth
Beyond your World
Break Away
From a path that leads to your demise.
Life can change.

Why?
Do we fathom mediocrity.
Turn from the truth
Rise up!
We corrode each passing day

Now see!
That as hard as it may seem
No reason to weep
Realize!
What we sow is what we reap.

Hypnotized by senseless problems
Mask away the lies
Surrender to ignorance
Walk down the easier path


There is no more time to waste
Submerged in meager thoughts
You must make your time worthwhile
Realize what lies beyond.

If you look at all else
What do you see?
Your life is just a fragment.
Track Name: Orogeny
When the truth has fallen.
To the darkest of our thoughts
It will shed into the standards
Through the pages falsely written

In the windows of our eyes
Shimmers the blinding heat
When flying leaves leave nothing
But color

Feeling, Breathing
Grinding floors uncovered
Finding, Meaning
In the indescribable image
Of our own errors

Chorus:
It’s time to get lost
In the open where we can see
Through the eyes of those who can stand
Those who could be
Our Witness, For Together
We will rise
Orogeny




(Our) broken hands come together
Making a stronger bond
Between a gaze that never quite met before

When vast distances of ignorance
Kept us from knowing
We were right here
Hiding our tears
We (just) take a glimpse of the unknown
Where will it take us?
Down or up

Without the blindfold of innocence
It’s carefully
How we tread
And win or lose
We live today
Track Name: Hollow Hourglass(A Beautiful Lie)
Open my eyes. See what awaits me today.
Set to comply. Ready to manipulate.


Exempt from a life
Again, and again
The tides of time turn
And all that I seek is the path that will lead my escape.


I can’t believe that this is my reality.
Running away from the unescapable truth.
Time drowns away as I run from this endless maze.
Confined in the walls of this beautiful lie.
The cycle never ends.

Merely a tool. Pawn in the grand scheme of things.
Disposable. Follow without questioning.



Endlessly falling into an abyss.
Garden of Remembrance. Autumn reigns free.
Walls have been shattered. Life has decayed
I keep on searching for something that will change my world.


The hourglass of life keeps moving on
Misled by the lie we call purpose
Lose grasp of my reality
Enthralled in this endless dream
Where all my hopes keep hanging by a thread



Is this the path that has been laid ahead?
Will all of this be worth in the end?
Are my foundations built from hollow truths?
Or did I see through this beautiful lie?
Track Name: Horizons
At times I’m afraid of going ahead.
Memories linger in the back of mind.
Sometimes I am lost
Confused, Overwhelmed by my foolish past.
I have no regrets the time has now come for me to rise back.

The Horizon far awaits I won't waste another day.
If i fall I'll rise again
Never turn from what's ahead

For all those of you who stomp on my will.
I’ll tell you one thing
I know who I am get out of my sight
Stop holding me back

The Horizon far awaits
I won't waste another day.
If i fall I'll rise again
Never turn from what’s ahead

Even in the darkest of days
The Horizon far awaits

You must understand and realize
What does not kill you makes you stronger
You only live once and time flies by
Rise up from your grave towards the horizon.
Track Name: Vanishing Illusion
Through the ashes of my youth
I linger upon my past
Look at my reflection
and despite what I’ve become

Submerged in a timeless void
As my years now drown away.


Fade... Fade... Fade away....


I've forsaked my dreams
for an illusion
I Destroyed my youth
for reality.

Tarnished my essence
Tore away my world
If i could run back
Would follow my voice



I've been trying to justify
the way i am
Drowning sorrows in an endless sea

I've been trying to hide away
From how i feel
Crucify my own humanity


Conformed by the boundaries of life
A cycle that will never end
As my clock runs by
Eternal Nothingness


The joy and the dreams that i had
Are now a complete mystery
A selfish ordeal
Destination Nowhere


A mirage fortress trapping me
imposed by this society
When did I stop to hear my soul?


Now that my years have drained away
Can't turn to repair whats unchanged.
Was all my life a worthless game?


As this chapter comes to an end
My story hasn’t finished yet
I will rewrite all that remains
And dare to take a chance again.


Reflecting upon the day that my tides were changed
Felt once more my life had purpose
As I lay away now for eternal rest
I vanished from that illusion.
Track Name: Delicate Violence (feat Nichole Carrasquillo)
Let me tell the story of a girl
Who lost her life to tragedy.
What used to be a person full of life
Slowly lost her will to live.

Woman: Ive never thought this day would come
My soul has become hollow
All the wonders in my life
Have faded into shadows



As the years went by
their love became a memory
replaced by daily anguish

Their souls drifted apart
as he revealed his true nature
Destroying all she ever knew.


Despise, sorrow and pain
became the center of her world
Was she lost now??

Woman: Why didn’t i see?
Deceived by this farce
Now I am drifting
My world falls apart


Drown
Into an endless sea
Of never-ending pain

Waiting
As my soul vanishes


Her thoughts became distressed
Lost within herself
As words took all her essence

Destroying what remained
A shadow was revealed
Take my hand now.

:
Woman: Take me from this place
Away from this world.


Woman:
As my body is taken down.
I sense all the confusion.
Cries of angst are heard at night.
A final retribution.
