Track Name: Ion of Ares
I see your heart
It beats just like mine
But we're conditioned to see differences in life
We cling tight to an archaic design
And propagate beliefs without a single shred of foresight

It's easy enough just to believe that you're right
Without ever even admitting you might
Not have all the answers to the questions in life
Just for once admit there's more to this than meets the eye

Take all I have
Give nothing back

Burned
To the ground
I won't tell a soul
I won't make a sound

I see your heart (I see your heart)
I see your heart
It beats strong with the blood like the rest of us
But your intentions are wrong
You hold on to hate and let go of love

(This) this is all we have
Time brings us all
to the inevitable end
It's all we have (all we have)
The wasted seconds in life
That we can never get back

Take all I have
Give nothing back

see your heart (I see your heart)
I see your heart
It beats strong with the blood like the rest of us
But your intentions are wrong
You hold on to hate and let go of love

I can tell what you're thinking
I see it in your empty eyes
Its in the look on your face and the sound of your voice
It's the thought that keeps you up at night
Track Name: Thought Experiments
Look closely, what do you see
A tiny glimpse of a vast eternity
What you see, is only
Just a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of everything

You can't trust what you perceive
You can't trust reality
Nothing is real

There are no answers to the questions you ask
No inherent meaning in consciousness
The only voices you hear through the veil
Are the echoes of cries for help

There are no answers in the ancient texts
Visions distorted by a fractured lens
Biased perception of existence

Look closely what do you see
A single thought that becomes infinity
What you see, is only
Just a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of everything

I feel a shift in perception
I feel a calm like ive never felt consuming me

We are outdated a dying breed
The final gasp of a system that's failing

An ever changing perspective
I'd forfeit all ive been given to truly see

I'm not your fucking slave

We are outdated a dying breed
The final gasp of a system that's failing
Track Name: Terminus
I've seen where this goes
And I know it's coming to an end
I've seen this all before
And I see it even if you cant

This system was designed for failure
Flawed from the start, the foundation made of paper
And still you think you can buy your integrity
But that currency is weak, and in the end will stand for nothing

A self important state of apathy
A sickness stemming from cognitive thinking
A turning point or a fork in the road
I've been this way before, I know where this goes

I've seen this all before
And I see it even if you cant

This system was designed for failure
Flawed from the start, the foundation made of paper
And still you think you can buy your integrity
But that currency is weak, and in the end will stand for nothing

We're all lost
But are we so far gone
We'll never find our way back (from here)

A turning point is reached the cycle repeats
The mind succumbs to its fight with disease
(And it repeats)
Track Name: Occam's Razor
Each day moves seamlessly into the next
But still progression stagnates
Each breath exhales to begin the next
We think we’ll live forever

The unending cycle has us trapped
And we don’t even realize it
Or maybe we do but we’re just expected
to feign indifference

I won’t be trapped in the is cyclical state of consciousness

Electrical impulses firing
uplifting me
Into a new level of thinking
Break free!

The unending cycle has us trapped
And we don’t even realize it
Or maybe we do but we’re just expected
to feign indifference

Our perspectives of our lives are so misguided
We expect so much without ever giving in return

I won’t be trapped in the is cyclical state of consciousness
i have set myself free and broken the cycle that seemed unending

In a sea of mindless digital vessels
Carrying out their preprogrammed existence
I hold on to the ultimate gift of consciousness
The ability to think for myself
The freedom to make my own decisions
Learn from and adapt to the consequences
I will never be what you perceive me as being
Because my identity is my own to define

I won’t be trapped in the is cyclical state of consciousness
i have set myself free and broken the cycle that seemed unending

Each day moves seamlessly into the next
But I’m finally making progress
