Lyrics

1. ASTRAY

Cleansing my soul in temples of light
Reborn with god's love, delivered from the night
Given a second chance with a new life in sight
But after a day there's always a night...

Travelling through this life
To attain the unknown goal
The quest of putting an end to the strife
That binds one to ones toll
Altering, adjusting the ways
To find the golden path
Attempting to master the maze
Mitigating the inevitable aftermath

Roaming between religions
Between different ways of thought
Seeking for the meaning of life
Is something every man has sought

Grasping for the truths of life
And what we're living for
Without the capacity to solve the riddle
We wonder 'til we are no more

Outdistancing the suns of the past
Leaving them all behind
Looking yonder at what's ahead
Hiding the dark thoughts in the haze of your mind
Following guides and signs
Utilizing the different charts
Studying the sciences
Desiring to master the arts

Roaming between religions
Between different ways of thought
Seeking for the meaning of life
Is something every man has sought

Seeking for the answers untold
Collection knowledge to forsee what'll be
After this death... shall it all unfold?
After this life... is there nothing but eternity?

Outdistancing the suns of the past
Leaving them all behind
Looking yonder at what's ahead
Hiding the dark thoughts in the haze of your mind
Following guides and signs
Utilizing the different charts
Studying the sciences
Desiring to master the arts




2. TIDINGS OF THE BLUE SPHERE

Probing... inward
Seeking new depths within myself
An odyssey through my subconscious
The deeper I venture the worse it will be
I don't know if I want to see
As I realize my view of society

Their games of power infest the air
Lost in your own world, you don't want to know
Perpetual decline is breeding despair
I questio myself, how far will it go?

Go??

And life goes on under yellow sun
As time goes by in star-filled space
And ignorant children pace the earth
All revealing in endless mirth

A fragile eco-system
In orbit around the star
Imbalance under way
It has come too far

The future is concealed by time
And lurking around the next bend on our way
Yes, you speak and yes, you act
But is your reason still intact?

Errors, mistakes
Something we make
Trust in technology
Something we fake
Yeah!

Our action past and present
Are closing in on us
Visions of our future
A world that's choked in dust




3. SPIRIT SPECTRUM

My veins begin to freeze
As I adapt to cryogenic sleep
Slowly losing consciousness
In the grasp of high-technology

I'm falling through the scrying window
Spinning through a spheric world
Confluent, psychedelic
Flashing visions clear

Holographic, schematic
Molecular, reversal
Transmutation, acceleration
Access access access to myself

I am on a journey
Through the sanctum of myself
I am searching
For the secrets of my soul
I am experiencing
The depths of my mind
I'll find entrance to inner dominion

I chase myself through the maze
Just to find what's in it
Facing the mirror of emotions
the spectrum of my spirit

Revive memories, impale oblivion
I am present, in my own mind

Seconds freeze, vacuum time
Reality denied
Collapsing mind, trapped inside
Forever I will die?

I am running mindless through the maze
As I face the entrance to the gate
Behind the gate there's just another maze
This is eternity, I am forced to face
I see the image of my spirit spectrum
Every color has turned black or grey
There are no limits to how much a soul can suffer
I will experience for an eternity




4. IVORY TOWER

Rising he who was subdued
Committing acts of protest
Their speech of lave is misconstrued
He will put it to the test

Rejecting rule that's obsolete
Their influence won't last
He won't accept to taste defeat
Their power is part of the past

Contradiction, false disguise
Abusing faith of man
He has how seen through their lies
Ignores that he is banned

Now... stop looking to the skies
No entity of light will help you
Now... who created who?
Did man create god?

No palace in heaven
No life for eternity
These medieval beliefs
Can't reign eternally?
The men in power
Suffocating wills in a society conformed
In their ivory tower
Arranging master plan for our society deformed

Rise now you who were suppressed
Think with your own minds
Don't let yourselves be oppressed
Your own path is what you must find

Religion is but a means of manipulating people
It's time we face it, we are but animals with brains
Stuck on this rotating globe of space
Life is but a random outcome to biological processes
As is the human race...
