Track Name: Evolve
We can see the stillness
Of the world's resolve
Closed off to transcendence
Oscillating in a closed loop

My intentions dry the flood of permanence
By pulling all the entropy so close
It seems I can finally see
Through the mirage

My vision clears
Enter the unknown
I see a place
That we can humbly dwell

We believe the universe is at our fingertips
But until we conquer ourselves
We're the spawn to a greater entity

We thought we'd change the outcome
Caused by an illusion
As our mind consumes itself

We push all our drive away
Forgot how to ignite our intent
Stop reverting to a dependence
That you've clung to a thousand times

We can see the stillness
Of the world's resolve
I can finally see
Through the mirage

Don't forget the reason we've spawned here
With the capabilities to shape and evolve

You must dictate to find your purpose
It's a task impossible without guidance

Keep in mind that we'll be here x3
We'll be here until you bloom

Until you bloom x4
Track Name: Confining Thoughts
Why can't I see
What is meant to be
How do I define
My own destiny
I fall with the force of opposing mindsets can I try

To break free from confining thoughts
And let my will
Find the path I've sought
The path I've chosen

I'm about to be broken down
We're all going to be broken down
A failsafe comes in proximity
But my heart cannot comply
A failsafe comes in proximity
But my heart cannot comply

To break free from confining thoughts
I must let my will find the path I've chosen
This burden
This ambiguity
This path of life
Is not for me

I dichotomize from pushing and pulling
My instincts fall through the cracks every time

Close my eyes to practicality
Expose my mind to sentimentality
Will I be forced to take this road

To break free from confining thoughts
I must let my will find the path I've chosen
A failsafe comes in proximity
But my heart will not comply

Will not comply

Close my eyes to practicality
And expose my mind to sentimentality

(Will I be forced to take this road) x2

I will search onward
In dubious hope
A failsafe comes in proximity
But my heart will not comply
Track Name: Masquerade
The man that contradicts himself
Can never find solace
Outlawed from contentment
By his own denial

(Whispers)

Afraid to confront the shell
You've created for yourself
You force yourself into a
Loose fitting coat

When you fall you will see the light
I can't imagine such a tragic disaster
You better latch onto something familiar
Or you'll never understand what's right

Pick and choose some of us will lose
Take your fucking mask off tonight
You better ask yourself one question
Am I ever going to be alright

Where's your esteem gone now
You've lost your disguise x2
