Track Name: Escape:Return
Nothing but a sense of crude entitlement overall
rain will never stop pouring
this forest cries for justice not vengeance
(not vengeance)

Escape from the rising sun
return at the sight of the moon

Feed your ego with the loss of yourself

Nothing but a sense of crude entitlement overall
you will never feel like yourself
until you reach awareness of what surrounds you
(of what surrounds you)

Escape from the rising sun
return at the sight of the moon (X2)

Escape:Return
Track Name: Silent Light
Curious child with an endless dream
watching across the narrow sea
a light that stops you with no need to speak
as far as the eye could see

He walks in spirals towards the sun
Screams and hymns that echo through the seams
He walks in spirals towards the end
"Close your eyes, there's nothing here to see"

Curious soul so far from home
dancing together with the unseen
Oh son, they told you to keep away
Now you slip away from me

"Father you were right, there's darkness behind this light"

He walks in spirals towards the sun
Screams and hymns that echo through the seams
He walks in spirals towards the end
"Close your eyes, there's nothing here to see"
Track Name: John Doe
Streets filled but still alone
company a fine word but not as lonely
as the devil and me

Maybe I'm mistaken
a broken soul walks empty streets
but now I'm free
my misery belongs to him

John Doe signed with blood
No black nor grey
Just a deal, a fine trade
All the knowledge in the world
Twenty four years before I'm claimed
Oh, what have I done?
Am I nothing but skin and bones?

Maybe I'm mistaken
a broken soul walks empty streets
but now I'm free
my misery belongs to him

What have I done
Am I nothing but skin and bones?
Track Name: The Naked Flame
Rest assured
hope vanishes like ashes in the air
betrayal from fire as the wind carries us
don't trust anyone in this plane

Now carry me into the edge
and let the flames devour me
Now carry me into the edge
where dreams become reality

Hope for a quick run
embrace your fears or let them burn
clever as it ignites and only weak in it's absence
like leaves giving into gravity

Now carry me into the edge
and let the flames devour me
Now carry me into the edge
where dreams become reality

Cleanse us all
Track Name: Dead Ends
Machines speak for me
just badges and titles pursue my well being
entangled tubes occupy my pain
mechanics of illusion consume me

Why did you leave me in this bed?

And even if you knew what to do, you couldn't possibly know
(You couldn't possibly know)

Conversations from a mile away
ill news they can't wait to break
the world went and left in a hurry
not a grain of sand in the hourglass

Why did you leave me in this bed?

And even if you knew what to do, you couldn't possibly know (x2)
(You couldn't possibly know)
