Track Name: Paradise Lost
Disillusioned mind brings chills
A smile within my daily pill
Loss of sleep makes me ill
Impossible to just stand still
Am I the only one afraid?
Why did, my mind, this thought pervade?
Fences erect where flowers laid
Is this prison one I've made?

Does God extend his hand to the wicked and the damned?
Playing mistress to trepidation, I fall further from elation
Counting all that I've done wrong, I see the list is growing long
When being jocund becomes my vice, I think I've lost my paradise

Sweaty palms with slight incisions
Curled up in fetal position
Voices whisper somber truths
Innate need to find a roof
Veil my woes in sheets of laughs
But who will write my epitaph?
Sable goddess kiss my head
When I wake up, will I be dead?
Track Name: Terrigen Mists
There's a galaxy waiting for the divine
Celestial solace beyond my grasp
there're ethereal smiles to guide your passage
I lost my ticket in my moral lapse

Ode to mother, she's a house of gold
We desecrate her love, bend her arms and make her fold
'till we see perfectly
There's no mother quite like she

There's a milky way that paints the sky
When the sun absconds for a rest
There's a pestiferous throng that's landed on mother
It's made its home on her breast

We're no children, we're executioners
Banging down on mother's chest
Wanting it to implode
Still we see perfectly

The dying galaxy
Track Name: Increasing Entropy
Temperatures rising, but people are colder still
A long way from the ashes, but still very far down hill
Ignorance blinds you blissfully, I wish I couldn't see
The ruins of your city, and those below me.

Every day, I grow jaded and exasperated
Hold me now before I fall to apathy
Every time I look into your eyes
World of black, crowned again, increase entropy

What lurks in the darkness is not as frightening as what poisons the light
Shadows across the hall, a bomb on your homeward flight
Snap back to symmetry, A suicidal shade precariously perched
A bullet from the legislative, a sanguinary sect in the church

"Don't hang on. Just let go"

Every day, I grow jaded and exasperated
Hold me now before I fall to apathy
Every time I look into your eyes
World of black, crowned again, increase entropy
Track Name: Eye of the Sun
I lull in suspended sunrise
Intervals of white within the sable landscape
Wrapped up in a blanket of space
Warmed by the heat of the sun
Vitriol has condemned the Stars
They align tonight for the gallows
Abysmal eye beckons to me
I descend into the shadows.

And I see god

Can you see the markings in the sky?
Illustrations of a thoughtless child
Dangling innocently by a noose
Repugnant is now what once would beguile
The sunset is scored by thunder
The child is torn asunder
Bound in shackles of thought
Held down by what I bought

And I see naught

Eye of the sun

Invisible to you, yet it's all I see
What's insubstantial to you caves in on me
Poisoned mind, nefarious visions I find
Found in shackles that bind
How do you expect me to climb?

I am the sun
