Track Name: Current-Climax
This is where it begins , this is day one

I am! I am a wonderer

I have witnessed every hatred and I’ve seen every

desire , I am a wonderer of time

and time;

hunts me like ghosts of my past



No one can see that day in day out

inside I’m



Broken , everyday I’m broken

inside I’m

Broken , everyday I’m broken

inside



It’s like a burning at my back

without controll of my body and

no one to love me back

vanished like dust in the tides of time



Sedated by knowledge of an unseen world

and so we

Ascend!



I have lost faith and I have lost compassion

the only passion I have is to grow

dead inside



We are condemed , the voices never end

We’re walking in pathways

Just know that this could be it, the voices never end

We’re walking in pathways

Just know that this could be…



The end of everything

I’ve seen it

This could be it

everyday I have thought about i
t
our future is…



Broken
Track Name: Libra
Breath in , breath out

let the questions find the answers,

let the riddles of your past find the key

I have let myself life was only just a dream

Life is only about dreaming



An endless cycle of people living in regret

We are the sons and the daughters,
the children 
of the first



This is all meaningless

if you do not believe

when we’ll release the tension

without progression we’re al
l
standing like statues

like lambs to the slaughter

raised to lose our feelings

Deny this

and start living



How much longer will it take to conclude the silence

don’t give them anything



FIGHT IT!

don’t give them anything

FIGHT IT!

and take reprisal for your dreams

don’t give them anything


We are the sons and daughters

we are the children of the first

Sons and Daughters



waiting won’t give us results

for life is a train with no station

a race without course



READY, SET, GO!

absorb everything

don’t let nothing slip away from you

GROW!

Live without regrets

Don’t waste your time becoming someone else



Keep coming uncertainty

I will receive you with open arms

Keep coming uncertainly

is this the end or is it the start?



you will grow

GROW!

Track Name: In Equilibrium
Every second we live we get closer to the end

disregard your life and live on



In balance 

try to keep it in

Imbalance

trying to be insane



When it cracked, when it fell
into 
pieces that faded away 

in the end

pieces that once were me

till the end



Lay with me , lay with me gently

cause I know I’m standing on the edge



but I will

Preserve

I will descend right from wrong

find the enemy that hinders inside of me



HOW CAN I EXPRESS ALL MY FEELINGS WITHOUT
TELLING THE TRUTH.
HOW CAN I BE REAL TO OTHERS WHEN IM NOT
BEING REAL TO MYSELF.
DONT YOU WANT TO LIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST ?
TO LOVE LIKE YOU'VE NEVER LOVED?
TO CRY TO EXPRESS TO DESIRE TO CREATE?
STOP BEING PESSIMISTIC
STOP ARGUING FOR NOTHING
START TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
EXPLORE ! LOVE !STIVE ! SEEK !(AND) LIVE ON !



Unobservant 

wasted away through the cracks



We are the ones that keep you in equity

when decisions dim

We are your company when you’re all alone



keep your composure

when you’ll find yourself on the backslide



In balance

try to keep it in

Imbalance

trying to be insane

Track Name: Gravity
You still believe that you wanted

to get away

You were asleep but realised

we’re walking in



Cirlces around and around

will we ever escape this eternity

Circles around and around

will we ever escape this maze of thoughts



As individuals we are divergen
t
bizzare and deviant


Riddles that can’t be solved

so perculiar, so identical indeed

Riddles that can’t be solved

riddles that can’t be dealt with!



we need gravity to pull us into place


I am not afraid , I won’t be ashamed

I am not afraid

Gravity will pull us into place



Imagine everything is set

you’ve come to an end

and all collapse in silence



cause it’s the

Gravity that brings us closer

We’re like feathers in the wind

We’re all crawling within but we’re

alone enough to see that



Gravity that keeps us closer
Track Name: Nostalgia
We’ve turned to servants when we used to be pioneers

not souls diluted in square screens

False visions of objects in need, this is what we are indeed

we’re creating a modern


BABYLON!

We think we are gods

but we are sheep and not sheperds

Honesty as a trait is gone

will we ever know where we belong?



Fathers , where is your melody?

Are we supposed to follow?



Ancient ways and traits lost in transcendense of days

Their voices remain, their faces remain in our world


Let’s not forget what is sacred
Let’s not forget what remains

We remain
and on the edge of the world
our scars are open

Nostalgic moments are all 
unfinished dreams
When we’ll remember how we used to be?
 

Remember this elegy
remember the signs

NOSTALGIA

This is our future’s
ELEGY
