Track Name: Revelations
We stopped believing in what we should really do
A profit nation can’t see these lies all through
The gates are closing, day becomes the night
If no one will believe in us then who will win the fight?

Hearing what you say, I can’t make up my mind
You’ll believe it when you see it when the planets have aligned
The end is drawing near, our cataclysmic fear
I’m so lost in superstition I could make it my career

You’ll all see, it’s not just me, that eventually, it’s catastrophe

The world is changing, we’re all changing too
Our caustic kinship will soon become our doom

Yeah, yeah yeah yeah
our impending doom
Every day and every night we sing songs joy we sing songs of fright
All the walls are closing in, how can we crush our mortal sin?

Soon the beasts will rise with a fire in the skies
Our demise will be short and swift, a carnival of cries
Politicians, activism, little fish and who will kill them
Delusions of the mind, I hope this can subside
Calibrate, substantiate, illuminate our cosmic fate
Contemplate the notion, give in to devotion
Origins of space entwined, our allegiance to all of mankind

Seeing all I’ve seen, I can’t be undefined
All the reasons for the seasons til the end of time
Our purpose here remains so unclear

Our lives prolonged, but who belongs in the tides of grace and the human race
All that we fear, and all we’ve confined will leave us empty with nothing inside

All that we mean, and all that we’ll be… will lead us home

Stories told, life in the fold
The autumn shade passes by
Looming clouds overhead
Our worlds aligned, lost in rewind
A world sustained, stuck in refrain
The world will never be the same
Track Name: Blissful Mystery
You find your woman, you’ll find a way
Can’t find your woman she’s gone astray
You find your woman, you’ll find a way
Can’t find your woman she’s gone astray

Well when’s the first time you realized, you had both apologized, reconciled the fact that you can never retract this and that.
This is all our history, our lives a blissful mystery
So when you hear fate’s truthful call,
You gotta rise to the occasion even if it's a crawl

She’s gonna reach out to your soul
She’ll make you lose control
It’s all in front of you
It’s all right in front of you

Can’t find a reason, can’t find a way
Can’t find a reason to my dismay
Can’t find a reason, can’t find a way
Can’t find a reason to climb away

So you say that he’s not all that bad, you’re only sad because all the times that you had,
Can’t let go of what we know, don’t show your face, conceal it without a trace
Individual identities defining reality
Soon displaced, erased from this disgraced state of grace, uneven pace, invaded space
She gives in for that cold embrace

She’s gonna reach out to your soul
She’ll make you lose control
It’s all in front of you
It’s all right in front of you
And all that you held on to
It may all just seem so untrue
It’s all in front of you
The lights have gone out and there’s nothing else that we can do
Nothing that we can do
Nothing we can do

This is the analysis of the missing
A contradiction that we’re living
So relentlessly we whine and cry
Deny all the convictions that are supplied
Dual enamored in this state of manner,
Glitz and glamour, in this pageant of the latter
Not that that it matters, cause it’s all up to her
You can’t blame me if the puss wants to purr

It’s all up to her
It’s all up to him
It’s all up to you
It’s all up to you
Track Name: Struggle Along the Way
Why do you let them treat you this way?
Why do you let them treat you this way?
Why do you let them treat you this way?
Why do you let them treat you this way?

And when you're struggling and falling down
I'll call your name from the crowd
and when you're struggling and still falling down
just turn around and I'll catch you, catch you, I'll catch you

Well how can I just stand by, watch your problems multiply
I don't buy your alibi seeing you with that guy
He's just lyin' to you face to face
and I know you're just trying to find a place to feel safe
so you say that you're struggling everyday and you say that's ok
well you can call on me from in the crowd
and I'll catch you, catch you, I'll catch you

Why do you let them treat you this way?
Why do you let them treat you this way?
Why do you let them treat you this way?
Why do you let them treat you this way?

and I ask you why do let them treat you like they do
when there's nothing better than me loving you
and I ask you why do let them treat you like they do
when there's nothing better than my love for you

Why do you let them still treat you this way?
Cause no one got very far, without a struggle along the way

You hold brighter days
Track Name: That Moment
Gotta believe, gotta believe gotta believe in order to leave you gotta order to keep
Those lines untangled, or else leave the world in shambles
Gotta relive, gotta relive gotta relive that moment the one that you started with
It’s the one that’ll tell you which way to go

You sit there waiting for the call, but do you believe any of it all?
The reason for this time-changing rearranging, this tithe-binded bribe, this hive mind prescribed
Salutations from the grave we’re glad to see you’ve all been saved
This proposition will not fail, cut the ropes and then set sail,
Illustrate the things you love, the things you hate, don’t hesitate
Delusions of our mind keep us trapped in time
It’s our grand illusion false allusion that keeps these cogs aligned

You have all this love to give, don’t be afraid to forgive
The world is anew, become what it is that you love to do
Though harsh and tough it seems, the wheel still turns for humanity,
Our values remained unchanged, exchanged for the life we’ve prearranged

All our lives, we’re all the same
The stage set for life actors playing this game

Gotta believe, gotta believe gotta believe in order to leave you gotta order to keep
Those lines untangled, or else leave the world in shambles
Gotta relive, gotta relive gotta relive that moment the one that you started with
It’s the one that’ll tell you which way to go

All our lives, we’re all the same
The stage set for life actors playing this game
All our lives, we’re all the same
The stage comes to life

Don’t leave the world behind,
all that reminds us of better times
The choices you made, won’t leave you alone
Your soul is free, those things you’ve outgrown
You’ve found your way
It’s the world at bay that leads us astray
We’ve seen this episode run on, and on, and on, and on

Gotta believe, gotta believe gotta believe in order to leave you gotta order to keep
Those lines untangled, or else leave the world in shambles
Gotta relive, gotta relive gotta re-live that moment the one that you started with
It’s the one that’ll tell you which way to go

All our lives, we’re all the same
The stage set for life, actors playing this game
