1. INTERDIMENSIONARY

(Instrumental)




2. THE 42ND EGO

Freeze frame aperture
Tells me of my singular
Virus to the world
We came for you and you alone
Projects seize to fear
Stories of faith melt with the day
Choke
I'll imagine toxic shock
Therapy in my better dreams
But this place
Grows weary of the looks of me
A beautiful encounter
With the lotus tree
I can feel my thoughts
Wretched from me
Hung to bleed from
The new world marquee
A thrifty gamble
I'll take advantage from here
Let the fools think
I hold nothing dear
I've only got this
My last relation to
This fucking rock
This lucid sphere
A weakness has held
Onto the last fabric
I tear at it madly in fit of
Fury forced earthward
A battle of closely held secrets
For a weakness opposed
Holds one to a blistered degree
I've been predisposed
Only in the bloodline
Is this terror exposed
A knife to the eye
Of modern day times
Exactly what you've worked for
A price for the pride
I can feel the distance coming
The holes in my lungs
Won't let me take this anymore
Only in the bloodline
Is this terror exposed
A knife to the eye
Of modern day times
Exactly what you've worked for




3. MY CUPS HALF EMPTY

The hunt is over now
You've almost made it out
It took us several days
To remove your tumor thought benign

Bracing for it
My how the tables have turned
I said my how the tables have turned

Don't look down
I hold in my hands the answers to life
Six heads to a neck, and I know
They try to survive in the night
Thick are their wits, they have many names

They reach for a kiss and end
All of those with alloy and aim
Trust us, they'll say this won't hurt a bit

Pain has the worst taste in its mouth
Anger will deliver you into the deepest of mind

Hate condemns a man of trusting his love
Time knows truth is only saying I

In The Empyreans
I wake to the sound of your voice
The thought of you
Being gone tears at my insides
Tossing and turning every night
I cling to memories we have lived in our lives
I wished all our moments last forever
Take back time, take back everything

As I tell what has happened
It appears to me that this is
What it will be like from now on. Stare at change
Filled with questions, take myself on. I deploy the ways
It was meant to be
And the ways we dreamt to fear
On our shoulders
Its weight stays and grows
As does my heart when I notice you
Watching us

Never forgetting what you stood for
Taking chances, overcoming fears
Whenever in doubt
I turn to you for the answers




4. SKIFF FOR THE SUITS

I'll just get the oars
And push myself right off
How could I hold myself liable
Under such madness, do pray tell
Faces of bottles read through the night
Swaying in context, warning light
Yet another patron is dedicated
To this last jam
It's only 40 seconds till the show begins
Watch the screaming squabble of drunken state
Son, another grayscale of apathy in such a place
Not much time for reaction if one is wake
For fear of contracting such vile taste
This has been the last time
He'll leave here almost deadly undone
Pre-empt of fear
10 seconds now till the curtain is raised
Cold sweat seeps from his liquored brow
No one to throw the ring
One foot of water now
In panic stricken reigned he forgets how to swim
I'll scratch another from the cleansing post
It's almost a rush to reach for the blade
It goes from shame to shambles in less than days
Natural selection with a shove I'll take it from here.




5. IN THE EMPYREANS

I wake to the sound of your voice
The thought of you being gone tears at my insides
Tossing and turning every night
I cling to memories we have lived in our lives
I wished all our moments last forever
Take back time, take back everything
As I tell what has happened
It appeared to me that this is
What it will be like from now on
Stare at change filled with questions
Take myself on, I deploy the ways
It was meant to be
And the ways we dreamt to fear
On our shoulders
Its weight stays and grows
As does my heart when I notice you watching us
Never forgetting what you stood for
Taking chances and overcoming fears
Whenever in doubt I turn to you for the answers




6. SATURNINE

In sepia tone I rush through these closed doors
Botching every attempt I make to keep wheezing
Time gnawing at my ankles through the sinew
With frantic eyes I pose a turbulent threat
All at once you're spreading disease
Infecting everyone that comes in contact
I was sleeping before any of this even happened
The ebb and flow has pasteurized this blood of mine
Panic rushes through sentient thoughts of fight or flee
I can offer no aid but the hand that strangled me
My eyes lead me to possible escape
Intercepted by a figure with a mirror head engaged
Opening his mouth I came to hear him speak
I see you have had an encounter with
It's tearing me to pieces
Keep it togeth- The pressure is crushing me
Don't stop breathing- Nerve endings are screaming
There's no antidote for this ailment
No end to potential perpetual chaos
Your world of black and white has never seemed so small
No end to potential perpetual chaos
Quickly now we haven't time
For utter mundane thought process




7. VIOLENCE IN FLUID: TRICERATOPS

Three spikes of fury
I can't depend on this
Deadly hesitation
Just watching from a distance
Makes you feel like hell
Fear of detection
Left in overnight
A thought can quickly disappear
None left to ration
She left me for dead
Because I have interfered
Dreams of resurrection
I have wandered into the red zone
Lines quickly alter the state of physical shape
It's a thrash of more than one lifetime
But I couldn't stand to think of
A more dignified way to die
To be smiling at the end of one's life
Fragmented I'll hang
From her as a trophy
In the line of defense
I'll promptly agree
Pushing forward everyday
Trying to escape this maze
Pushing forward everyday
When will we find our way




8. PORTALS

Heaps of Frozen Ions
Bled Dry of Timed Restraint
NO Memory to Forget
With Less Eyes to See

I've Fallen Victim to
A Subtle Hypocrisy
I thought My Word Counted
In the Mass Scheme of Things

It's a squandering Fate to Notice
Time Lost
With the Knowledge of was
We A r m Ourselves for then

My Frame of Reference
Has Been Flanked
It's a Closed mind setting
Chains Unveiled
(x2)

Change of Pace, Rate of Change,
Time Collapsed. To gateway
I Stood In, Light of My, own Eyes

I feel numb...I feel numb

Blasts Of Colour Broken Light and Dead Sound
Two Dimensional Lines Manifest Solid Ground
I'll Take That Step Into Darkness Divine
Pieces of me, Underlining, The Bonds of Life
This Surreal Blanket Of Emotion Has Masked The Truth
Reality Sets in For Momentary Lapse
I'll Take That Step Into Darkness Divine
Pieces of me, Underlining, The Bonds of Life

This is not the End!
This is not the End!
This is not the End!
This is not the End!

It's A Strange Sensation
Knowing I've Traveled Distant
Worlds Of Space And Time,
Quasars Alike Greet With Light

It's A Strange Sensation
Knowing I've Traveled Distant
Worlds Of Space And Time,
Quasars Alike Greet With Light

It's a Squandering Fate to Notice
Time lost
With the Knowledge of was
We Arm Ourselves for then




9. I LOST MY LOSS OF RUIN

It can't be
It can't be here already
I've traveled too far
Much too much has dissipated into air
For it to have caught up
I'm coming back stronger than before
I'm coming back with a vengeance unknown
It might have caught me at the right moment
For I can feel the anesthesia
As it treads in water of distance
It made it clear
I knew I wouldn't make it out alive
I never, I never, I never had one at all
Love waking tears rather cause I can't remember
Where I put mine down




10. TO PLAYACT IN STATIC

In a breeze from this young morning's breath
Comes a message I have been waiting for
It comes from the south
With a chip on its shoulder
Images of wind cut the strings
Let me fall
As reasoning took command
This has been over for miles
I just needed an excuse to plunge
Into the fields of static
I can't feel it in atmosphere
Dramatic ties charge white noise
Comprehend by gas leak
Contradiction bleeds from the wounds I have sustained
From this degree of gravity
I've never been subjected to this before
Marks line the track I walked
Let static engulf those lungs of yours
Cause it's been too long
I was right there, I was right there
For the whole fucking thing
I tried to save you and once did
Well it's a little bit of a party change don't-you-know




11. TEA TIME TIBBONS

Why don't you sit and entertain yourselves
While I lay it down on you
When a day comes to make itself
It knows to die before it makes it's prime
All this bullshit I can't understand
Why would you fake your phobia
You won't prescribe me my smile anymore
"I fought in a fucking war"
He would scream bitterly
As if the age hadn't affected him at all
It's the nay of victory
Had given him the blindness
To all things contrast to focus
A continuous drown of all
Deafly loud enough to scoff at
His years now have to tiptoe around him
He still cowers
To tibbons
Somewhere in there may be will to remember
We'll see you next week
A new addition to your old one
Don't you fucking dare
My memories keep me company
