Track Name: Dark Energy
My heart is bleeding.
Why are you receding?
Repulsive, wanting more, dark energy is knocking at your door
Your door
Don’t answer it.

Cosmic catastrophes have brought me down to my knees.
Forgive the dark deeds I have done.
I hate the man I have become.
Such a terrible one.
It’s my depravity.

The truth is, I’m but a man built on lies, fear, and hate.
I need you. You’re my gravity.
Without you my world would cease to be.
It’s too late for me.
So, save yourself.
Save yourself.
Save yourself.
Save yourself.
Open up.
Open now.
Track Name: Celeritas
Chaos floating through the air
Such a deadly stare
I know it runs from me
My only friend
Oh, sweet revenge
Come, unbury me

You, you’re just what I need
For my galaxy
To suppress the thirst of the soul sucking black hole
No, you’re no damsel in distress
You’re no better than the rest
You want it all
And you’ll take it.

Supernova, explode
Your body is electrical
Gamma ray, crime wave
Let my body be your slave

Temptation is my medication
Physical reaction
Nuclear attraction

Supernova, explode
Your body is electrical
Gamma ray, crime wave
Let my body be your slave

Temptation is my medication
Physical reaction
Nuclear attraction

Temptation is my medication
Track Name: Protostar
Remnants floating through the void
Possess the incentive
Asteroids kidnapped
I don’t want to lose my sanity
The terror burning a hole inside of me

Rise from the ash
Protostar protostar
Ghost of the past
Protostar protostar
It brings back the pain
Protostar protostar
It cuts me again
Protostar protostar

I never thought I’d fall again
inside the event horizon
kidnapped
I don’t wanna lose my sanity
The terror burning a hole inside of me

Rise from the ash
Protostar Protostar
Ghost of the past
Protostar Protostar
It brings back the pain
Protostar
It cuts me again
Protostar

Rise from the ash
Protostar protostar
Ghost of the past
Protostar protostar
It brings back the pain
Protostar protostar
It cuts me again
Protostar protostar

Where are you?
Protostar protostar
Track Name: Doomsday
binary star system is set to collapse
so let it relapse
because we’re in love
we’re in love

no chance for survival
dead on arrival
this is the way things end forever
at least we’re together

I wanna hold you close, hold you close
just let me hold you close, hold you close
as we decompose, decompose
no need to diagnose, diagnose
cause we’re die

The rumors are spreading that I’m the reason we’re getting
pushed away in outer-space
baby, don’t believe all their lies
I know there’s evil in my eyes
but I got it under control

I wanna hold you close, hold you close
just let me hold you close, hold you close
as we decompose, decompose
no need to diagnose, diagnose
cause we’re die
Track Name: Gloom
these treacherous roads
they’re ready to blow
lock and loaded
I trust my faith will wait for me
don’t break my soul
don’t take my heart
let’s grow old till the universe falls apart

so seductive, my mind can’t handle it
I tried to walk away, but it’s so hard to quit

invading my spine
invading my mind
grey matter dripping away one memory at a time

open your eyes as I hypnotize you
I’m not the one, I’m not the one, I’m not the one
feed me your lies, I know you want to
believe me when I say I’m not the one you’re looking for
one way path to your cerebral cortex
gonna get inside your brain, you and me, we are the same
I really think I have lost myself

reverse the curse
I’m trapped inside
reverse the curse
I’m trapped inside, my mind
reverse the curse
I’m trapped inside
I’m trapped inside
Track Name: Omega
Vortex encompass the ground that you walk on.
I'm trapped inside a tunnel of undecided time.
You're lost now, you're fading, your voice is degrading.
Confounded as they lift me up, up, up, up.

Oh no, they have taken over. Our time is over.

A reason, no meaning, while lost in this feeling
of pyrrhic victory while I'm stuck against these walls.
I'm tired of seeing my own body bleeding.
It purges me as it forces me down, down, down, down.

Oh no, they have taken over. Our time is over.
Oh no, they have taken over. Our time is over.
Track Name: Bones
Oh no, I can see your bones. A delusion gone wrong, far too long.
Precision vision of a dream escapes my subconsciousness. If I had a dime every time.
Let's see how far this rabbit hole goes. Lose yourself in the ebb and flow.
False realities create the daze. Break the chains, escape the cave.

Did I ever tell you I can feel you caress my bones?
They're brittle yet built strong. My chainmail protects them all.
Into the darkness. Down to the depths we go.
I feel so much better, but that's when I lose it all.
Yeah I paid my bills, just to give you chills.
I see right through you.

Fire drip dropping from the sky. I don't wanna die, wanna die.
Falling down a wormhole, a black hole, that's where I go but nobody wants to know.
Let's see how far this rabbit hole goes. Lose yourself in the ebb and flow.
To a place where no one knows. Neither do you, yeah it really shows.

Please give me the keys to antiquity.

Did I ever tell you I can feel you caress my bones?
They're brittle yet built strong. My chainmail protects them all.
Into the darkness. Down to the depths we go.
I feel so much better, but that's when I lose it all.
Yeah I paid my bills, just to get my thrills.
I hardly knew you.

See the armies as they're marching down.
Single file row through the middle of town.
Wearing nothing but a suit of bones.
Cast iron robes via post death row.
Insanity running through my veins.
13 crystal skulls cut against the grain.
Interdimensional beings are near.
Slipspace rupture, feel the fear.

Oh no, I can see your bones.
Track Name: Transmission
the dark side
I know exactly what you’re trying to hide
so hollow inside
access denied
transmit your negativity on me
making me crazy
lunatics on the run
you really know how to turn me on

so bad
you’re so bad when you control me

so mad
you’re so mad cause you’re controlling

subliminal
you’re just a criminal
so cynical

so bad
you’re so bad when you control me

living in a fantasy
all I see is dark energy
lunacy has begun
you really know how to turn me on

so bad
you’re so bad when you control me
you’re so bad when you control everything i know

annihilation, eradication, extermination
it starts coming around

elimination, assimilation, acceleration
It starts coming around

evacuation, origination, perpetuation
it starts coming around
Track Name: Odyssey
alone and confused
broken and used
I’ll sing you a song
peace forever long

some way, some how
one day I shall
mend your broken bones
you’ll never be alone

never ever never ever again

infinity
change what I used to be
the world has gone so wrong
when you feel you don’t belong

scared and disowned
lost in unknown
wanted to belong
death consumes us all
Track Name: When You Wish
When we were young we drowned ourselves in love.
A hopeless suicide.
We traded hearts and put them inside.

Don't mind them, they don't know what goes on inside our hearts.
A fusion that starts.
No, they can not comprehend that there was never a beginning.
It was always there and it will never ever end.

Girl if it meant so much to you why the hell in the world would you give it up?
Please, tell me why.
Cause, girl if it meant so much to you why the hell in the world would you give it up?
Please come back to me.
Was I that wrong to defy the world?
No, because you are my world.
Forever my star, forever my light, forever my heart belongs to you.
Track Name: Paradise
this is my last goodbye so don’t sacrifice today
all that you have worked for
all that you have built
on me

is this paradise or a hell that will suffice?
tell me
living in a world that subsides
reaching for the other side
could it be?

when you see me you’ll be dreaming of what you used to have
don’t you cry

once upon a time there was a boy who cast his dreams away
he couldn’t fight another day
he wouldn’t go out this way

don’t you quit on me
don’t you shed a tear
I’m here to make it all better
I’ll sing you a lullaby
just close your eyes

when you see me you’ll be dreaming of what you used to have
don’t you cry
when you see me you’ll be dreaming of what you used to have
don’t you cry

it’s not apathy I just can’t make you see what I believe
you’re too naive to conceive what’s going on inside of me

is this paradise or a hell that will suffice?

tell me what was I meant to be?
Track Name: Cosmic Crystals
try to resurrect the past
un-solve the aftermath
it’s too late for that
the time has come to open our inner eyes
to reveal the spies
so never compromise because they move so smooth

swimming in space with the cosmic crystals
fabric de-laced, spinning out of control

I see you standing there
consciousness impaired
no need to be scared
you are not alone
join the rebellion
combat extinction
the war has begun
we can’t afford to lose

swimming in space with the cosmic crystals
fabric de-laced, spinning out of control

warriors of the night, answer me
our riots must rewrite the laws and break the walls
they’ve built to hide the truth from us
it’s all a lie and i’m prepared to die
and return to you

destroy the reptilians
they’re bred for pure destruction
hidden beneath a veil of frequencies
beneath the hollow earth
beneath torrential seas

beware of the shape shifters
defy the all seeing eye
soon my love, we will be reunited

the prophecies foretold of a blood so cold and bodies that mold
the story unfolds
soon they will feel death’s kiss
no more hiss
sic semper tyrannis
we gotta gotta move

swimming in space with the cosmic crystals
fabric de-laced, spinning out of control

warriors of the night, answer me
our riots must rewrite the laws and break the walls
they’ve built to hide the truth from us
it’s all a lie and i’m prepared to die
and return to you

destroy the reptilians
they’re bred for pure destruction
hidden beneath a veil of frequencies
beneath the hollow earth
beneath torrential seas

beware of the shape shifters
defy the all seeing eye
soon my love, we will be reunited
death is not the end
it’s not the end
we must destroy the reptilians
