Track Name: Catharsis
Being stepped on by
The real head state
Found on high

Sworn off the feel
Have bound fate
Round of life

Hours holding on
Crossed up laaugh
Keeps me hanging on
If death creeps in my mind
I'll crash back down below

Is this really for my own
Is this where I want to be
Is this really for my soul

I insist on pulling back
It fails to bring peace
If ever pushed, hate results in teeth

Is this really for my own
Is this where I want to be
Is this really for my soul

Hell - I'll get used to the suffer
My fear will comfort for a while
I insist on a pillow to off
The sense of bitter lies

In a sense I've failed life
That's what they'll say
I don't need another to know
Now this is really for my own
Track Name: Revenge
I know that you have been running
Running away from me and the pain
But all your steps have been squandered
And i have found you at last

Another breath before your death
Another breath to give you life
And if you're thinking of surrender
Then I'll give you tonight

A little lesson in honor
Face up to the feelings of shame
Cause in the end you'll be stronger
Before you pay for delay

Another breath before your death
Another breath to give you life
And if you're thinking of surrender
Then i'll give you tonight

Bottled up in essence, a sense of mercy may reside
In a sea of empty guesses, you finally wept your own demise
Hope strayed I'm insane to free someone that admittedly took blame
Now heed disembody and take lead the world is approaching anatomical breaking

Go!

Another breath before your death
Another breath to give you life
And if you're thinking of surrender
Then i'll give you this one last night

Another breath before your death
This one last night
Another breath to give you life
Track Name: Aphelion
People of Earth
I come to you with horrible news
The world as you know will cease to be without our last hope
Guided by vessels of nebulous worth
A chance in a million to reclaim this Earth
Upon your departure I wish you the best
For if you'll not return we'll all freeze to death

(Home) Embracing the night
(Wait for me) I've never felt this cold
(Home) To find the light
(I will be) In everlasting gold

Wait for me
Far
I will be

If I go far
Will you wait for
I know my road
Is not toward home

Embracing the night (Wait for me)
I've never felt this cold
To find the light (I will be)
In everlasting gold
Been downed all my life
Not fit for this -- to save the human race
What's that ahead
Full blown star

In every trial there comes a place
Where all is lost and hope falls out
But now I see this wondrous place
Waking me to save the day

What was that?
Too much of the blaze! (No)
We gotta get back turn around and get on our way (No)
Get going - we will get back
Now we will repay
I will receive all i can
(No you're never - No you're never - you're never gonna go home)
I will reach you because i am man
(No you're never - you're never - you're never gonna get away)
If you can hear me I'm coming home
(No you're never - no you're never - you're never gonna fly far away)

Embracing the night
I never felt this cold
I found the light
And everlasting gold

I've seen where the stretches of sun reach the Earth
A fear of us bursting in fathomless worth
Inherent of value - expect and deserve
A fallible patron of longstanding mirth
Stretching the system with all i can do
Up howling by dawn to drive away the ice to move
It's been long and seeking but fast in return
I relish the lights warmth i will make it home

Embracing the night (Wait for me)
I'll never felt this cold (Home)
To find the light (I will be)
In everlasting gold (My place)
Been downed all my life (Grown by large)
I'm fit for this - I'll save the human race (In space)
I'll bring you there
Full blown star
Track Name: Perseverate
I whisper through the darkness to see
Holes beneath me are opening
Pride waxes and wanes
A fall to the death wouldn't be to askew
Hold for the moment will come
When pressure will pass to relieve to all your faults or you'll fall

Relics of the new day
Give heed on the rise
Raising on up to the elder
Pressing out the biscuit pride
Step back home if intent is to believe

You can pack your bag of bones
Reset your needs
Taking half the sense I've thrown
It will set you free
Sit alone and reflect on your beliefs
Take you back to the true song
Your will released

I can do it on my own
I'll Perseverate on

Rise up now to your feet flat lying on the floor
You based all your faith on the mere subside of the lore
If you had mentioned the pressure for release
You would pack your act full blown
Head west at least

I can do it own
I'll Perseverate on

Never will a world cease
Being in a world ever long crease
Open up the base of the next Babylon
Keep going up - growing
How about these steps - tag along - we're going up!

Once i know why
This mind of mine
Can't find what's right
I walk blind
To the starting line and i begin to
Perseverate

The point where i begin is never gonna end
Perseverate - redundancy - no stopping
The point where i begin is never gonna end
Perseverate - redundancy - do it all again

Once i know why
This mind of mine
Can't find what's right
I walk blind
To the starting line and i begin to...

Perseverate
