Track Name: Mirages
If it’s true that blood is thicker than water,
Your veins must be an ocean of treachery.
White lies, no, they mean nothing to me,
As you coax me into false fraternity.

What are you trying to prove?
And who are you trying to fool?
What are you trying to prove?
And who are you trying to fool?

If I had time to wipe the dirt off my eyes,
I wouldn’t have walked so blindly.
Your love and care
Was what you wore, a mask you wear.
I see your shade,
I hear your voice,
I walk the sand with no choice
To find the love you showed me
To find the love you owe me.

And one day, I won’t turn back,
Burn all your bridges, and bury the past.
You’re wasting time and you’re wasting mine.
You have left me behind.

Count all of your mistakes on the fingers
You have left, you thief.
As I’ll cut everyone off for all the things
You tried to take from me.
I am a mirage; you can't feel the
Water rushing down your throat
When your lungs Are filled
With the lies you spoke.

In a world of my enemies,
I stand alone.

In a world of my enemies, I stand alone.
Never fearing what the future has in store.
If the sand swallows me, I’ll pull you under.
Blood will always outweigh water.
Track Name: Tom Foolery
This lifestyle will be the death of culture, 
Long for the past, live for the future, 
never stop to take the moment in, 
never stop to take the moment in, 
Instant gratification, no long term goals, 
just a quick fix till the next distraction comes along (along), 
In-stant gra-ti-fi-cation, no long term goals, 
just a quick fix till the next distraction comes along (along), 
I won't remember the present, 
it will pass me right by, 
This lifestyle will be the death of culture
Track Name: Candidus
Shapes and objects start to melt into
A kaleidoscope; in gray scale
No matter how tired I may be
My mind, it is constantly
Darting into the depth
Of my imaginiation
Shapes and objects start to melt into
A KALEIDOSCOPE
Prolonging this strange state
Of self reflection
A state that soon will be forgotten
As I drift away
Track Name: Smashing
how could you lie right between your teeth
contempt of my life, I now resent
everything you are, and why you left
I will never forgive you

your nothing special,
so ordinary
used to value your opinion
now your too used up to mention

chorus
------------------------
the current pulls me under
your eyes will watch me fade
you lie through your intentions
ill never be the same

you kill me with your silence
i pushed you far away
so ill just disappear now
and hope its just a dream
-------------------------

you made me close my mind
turned it to a shelter
covered in vines
you made me close my mind
turned it to a shelter
covered in vines
Hope it will haunt you!

all my stupid friends
think this will pass me
tell me to move on
pain everlasting

trying to succeed
hoping i can fight through
all of my regretful thoughts
wish i never met you

through the past i wish i could
go back and just deny you

so tell me why, don't tell me lies
just tell me why, tell me why you didn't even try

chorus
------------------------
the current pulls me under
your eyes will watch me fade
you lie through your intentions
ill never be the same

you kill me with your silence
i pushed you far away
so ill just disappear now
and hope its all a dream 
-------------------------

no i wont give in
I will not give in
Track Name: Hyperion
(First Verse)
And you taught me what I was truly born for.
I would’ve never thought I’d come this far.
I knew that this could be something more
I looked through the glass at the man in the mirror,
and looked deeply at the face we share.
His eyes are wrought by the weight of restless nights,
Trepidation keeps haunting his mind.
Is there a way I can silence his qualms?
Is there a way I can silence my qualms?
(Second Verse)
I'm so scared to lose my humility
All my life, I’ve been fed by complacency.
Swallowing my words has only purged my life,
Until you came and showed me the light.
Removed the clouds in a world so dark
I am now a grain of hope
On a shore of black sand and rocks.
(Chorus)
The road before me has no path,
Should I risk walking on unmarked lands?
[Illuminate the way
Show me colours in grey]
I can’t feel the ground beneath my feet
The water’s rising, and I’m almost neck deep
[Shine the hope that is left
Inside of me]

(Second Verse)
And I never thought I’d change,
But I never want to stay the same.
Who I am today refuses to be afraid.
I won’t let my past define me,
But I’ll always remember my history.
This hope that you’ve given me
Gave me the strength to keep fighting.
This is my conviction, and I’ll say it loud
I knew that I would make proud.

(Breakdown)
Even though I was born in a world of hate,
I followed my dreams and adopted music.
Fostering this passion with every note I play
Is a love that they’ll never take away.
They fake their fate because they are blind.
I don’t bother with them; they’ll fade with time.

(Bridge)
Shine lights
Polaris guide me
Thank you for all you've given me
