Track Name: Nibiru
I feel my intuition calling
To look beyond the sky
Knowing something is coming
Something I can't define

Lo & behold;
It's gravity, insanity
Still light years away
Closer every day

With blind faith observation
To myriads of stars
From another constellation
Found you in a far &
Distant endless run
On your orbit around my sun
Now casting the shade
Of doubt out of way

Arise & Behold
Arise & Behold
Arise & It comes around the sun

Take me into the arms of your love gravity
Break me with the power of your gravity
We'll be gone in a heart beat

Arise & Behold
Arise & Behold
Arise & It comes around the sun

Celestial confrontation
Turn my poles upside down
Inner combustion
As the body complex drowns

The floods begin
They wash away all within
& mind finds a place
In another time and space
Track Name: Hollow Promises
Well it blows away
All the fear and shame
I convince myself
Time to play my hand

The chills go down
And the wind kicks in
As I send adrift
Another shivering lie

Hollow promises, they fade away
Fall upon deaf ears, into decay
To be covered in the rain

Silent affliction that goes on and on
Everything is said and nothing done
The sun will rise again

Now, words don’t weigh
But they can grow someday
Speaking, how they say
Actions louder than words?

The slumber comes
And the darkness falls
This fear, I swear
Will not be my grave

Loyalty and trust they sink into oblivion
As I numb myself and stare into the setting sun
Have I lied to myself so much I believe it's true?
Waking up I hear you saying "I believe in you"
Track Name: White Flags
Who set the standard high and why the ends they never meet
Dreaming beyond the sky with disappointments on repeat

Mouth full of not enough I’m choking on this self-deceit
Hungry and overstuffed I cannot swallow my defeat

Throw it away, inhale
Call it a day and exhale

But I feel I'm never letting go
Cross my lines, now that ain’t nothing new
And I feel my power running low
Raise my white flags and wave them at you

Strip down to emptiness, release the pressure from inside
Admitting life’s a mess makes all the wrong decisions right

But I feel I'm never letting go
Cross my lines which ain’t nothing new
And I feel my power running low
Raise my white flags and wave them at you

Raise your hands towards the sky
Smile as a winner, fortified
What you have, not what you chase
This is a party, this is for you to embrace

But I feel I'm never letting go
Cross my lines which ain’t nothing new
And I feel my power running low
Raise my white flags and wave them at you
Track Name: Evolve
EVOLVE

Take me away
I need to medicate
Myself out from this world
Escape into space
Is a heavenly craze
& the stars they illuminate

Mind divided
Out of control
Shattered self remains
The more I fight it
More I forget
Was it something that I ate?

Open wide is third eye
Stargate inside
Change won't be left
for tomorrow
Shine and evolve now

In silence I'm drifting
as I shift in 4D
Here I come
Levitating
as I bathe in the sun
All is one

Into unknown
Right into the void
Fragmented soul arrives
Puzzle of self all gathered as one
a picture all done
Track Name: Dysfunctional
Breathe in
Make your dim light go black
So soothing
Until it turns you its back

Through the days
I'm walking in my sleep
In the haze
my inner demons creep

Just like the first blow
It felt heaven sent
Now grey are my rainbows
Nothing in the end

From both ends burns the torch
Can not move a bone
I am dysfunctional

Too far have I gone
To lift this heavy stone
I am dysfunctional

Both ends burn the torch
Dysfunctional

Seasons change
I can smell the scent of spring
Rays of light
My eyes they only sting

Never felt this way before
every cell full of ache
& The world outside the window
Feels all fake

Where's my magic device
To turn back the time
Once lost in mindless obscurity
One more time for old sakes
Today tomorrow can wait
Track Name: P.D.M.
Low does our road go
Mockery out of sobriety
Lets go, can you hear it call
In a form of debauchery

How does our life show
when gazing through the half empty bottle?
Brakes won't stop the flow
And all that is left is the throttle

All that I touch
Will turn into dust & fall
I'm a wrecking ball

Perpetual destruction machine
Give me anything to waste my head
It fits me
I use it as a gun to harm!
& To kill the light
that shines from inside
& as this feeling dies
I crawl right back to dark!

Braindead & borderline
I'm still alive so pour me another
To raise my ass up from the top
Of my private stash I won't even bother

Into my bottomless pit
I swallow the hit from the bong
It's a judgement gong
Track Name: Mellowhead
Switch my surround off
Tune my inner radio
Frequencies in my head

All the shit people say
My brain don't compute
My mouth is silent & dead

Beneath the smile
I won't be seen
Way too shy
To make a scene

Our comprehension is unknown
For everyone around
Is there a pilot on control?
Are you ready to fly?

Mellow head
Is anybody there
Mellow head
We believe in Fellow head

I wear my tinfoil hat
So I won't be
Brainwashed by TV
I expand & explore
The fractals in my head
With fellow Forteans & E.T.

Beneath the grin
I won't be seen
Way too kind
To make a scene

We will take you far away
We will love you all the way
Track Name: Karmageddon
Pair to make an empty home
Dialogue in mono
Alone in stereo

In all of our seasons
That I caved in my head
Maybe you were the reason

And the truth that I was always
Running away from the pain
Of my own mistakes
Shut you out while our love was growing older

I just wanna get over
This shit I feel in
I just wanna find a reason
To go on & never to astray again
This is my Karmageddon

In the memories I shall dwell
Once more then never again
You I won't repent
Wan't you to know that
I only wish you well
& be assured our secrets I won't tell
This is the end
