Track Name: The Musings Of Your Heart (A Path Illuminated)
Every living creature has a guardian. Whether it is the ocean current or the waxing moon, there is a path illuminated, seen or felt. But some paths are not what they seem. Just observe a streetlight on a summer night, the hordes of moths pulled off course. They are doomed to knock against the glass until their wings disintegrate. You have a choice to rid yourself of distractions before going down this path. This is not a casual endeavor – you will need open ears and a focused mind to hear the musings of your heart.
Track Name: Don't Forget You Can Breathe
Breathe. It’s ok. You can breathe again. I can’t tell you if this is a dream or a nightmare. That is for you to decide. It is ok to be uncertain, to not know. We are all infants here, born reaching, grasping, wailing. You wish for joy, but there will be hate. You wish for water, but there will be fire. Don’t forget you can breathe. We are so much more than we could ever dream.
Track Name: Omens
I've been here before.
In distant dreams I've cried to help wait out the storm.
I've been defeated.
Smoked out and mistreated.
My eyes are blurred in pain.
The tears begin to form.
I've been defeated.

Can we just separate the hate created?
Begin to place the blame on those who made this.
Difficult. Difficult.

Go and judge me now.
Based off of yourself.
Down, down in the dirt.
Black as night we come to earth.

Fast asleep with memories.
Begin to wake the memory fades.
I can't believe and won't restate.
Is this a dream, or a nightmare?

Blistered by secrets we've burnt. (I'm letting them inside).
Blistered by people who've hurt.
Let me go. Go.

Begin to end this tonight.
Or be forsaken.
Begin to face hell tonight.
Track Name: Pure Kinetic Energy (Inside The Labyrinth)
You want to see what is ahead, but smoke obscures your vision. You take a few halting steps one way, then turn back. You take a few steps another way, but it is no use. Your breathing becomes ragged, your heart rate increases. You know what’s happening, but you can’t fight the panic rising in your throat. So you run. Your feet pound against the concrete, your legs churn the air. Your body is pure kinetic energy. But it is not enough. The smoke doesn’t clear. To escape this labyrinth, you need to fly.
Track Name: Voices Emerge
The sun will warm my hollow bones.
I leap off the roof, free of fear.
The wind will blow me far from home.
No one will ever find me here.

I soar in silence above it all.
I need some guidance before I fall.

I'm seeking out the highest point.
The eye of the storm, the clearest view.
I'm leaving all the endless noise.
I'm finding my voice outside of you.

I soar in silence above it all.
I need some guidance before I fall.

I'll find the words when I quiet down.
Let my voice emerge
Let my wisdom out.
Track Name: Grand Design (Outside The Labyrinth)
Wings erupt from your back. A kaleidoscope of reds, yellows, greens, blues; the feathers shine brightly as the wings take you above the smoke. Joy fills your being as you twist and tumble out of the labyrinth. You look down into the maze one last time to understand its grand design - and that is when you see the others. Thousands upon thousands of bodies chained to walls, locked in cages, blindfolded and beaten. Your brothers and sisters hover besides you, weeping, while others fly onward, refusing to look back.
Track Name: Stolen Lives
We know the price of the ticket.
But we still want to ride.
Slave catcher named prison.
Black bodies packed tight.

Who dreams this never ending war?
Are we ready?
Are we ready to wake up?
This nightmare's rotten to its core.
Are we ready?
Are we ready to wake up?

Blood flows from the river.
Drank up by the roots.
Southern trees ain't the only ones
That bear strange fruit.

Who dreams this never ending war?
Are we ready?
Are we ready to wake up?
This nightmare's rotten to its core.
Are we ready?
Are we ready to wake up?

Stolen land and stolen lives.
Slavery and genocide.
What was born must one day die.
Will you stand and take a side?

Shutting it down shutting it down.

We're here to return.
The nation its soul.
Cause no one is free.
We can't wait.

Who dreams this never ending war?
Are we ready?
Are we ready to wake up?
This nightmare's rotten to its core.
Are we ready?
Are we ready to wake up?
Track Name: Sulfuric Fumes Of Fury (Enter The Dark)
You rocket downward. You are a falcon, a missile, a meteor. The wind screams in your ears. You can see electricity, smell sulfuric fumes of fury. And in the center of all this chaos, a strange and welcome sensation: peace. To bring light to the abyss, one must enter the dark.
Track Name: The Space Between Calm And Catastrophe (Approaching The End Of Time)
This wasn’t supposed to happen, but here you are. You always thought there’d be more laughter, more love, more light … but none of that matters anymore. You are approaching the end of time. What are you going to do, knowing that soon you’ll be gone? Words like “before,” and “after,” have no meaning. There is just now, the space between calm and catastrophe. Look up and see the windshield smashed in, smoke rising from the car, and know that you have arrived.
Track Name: The End Of Time
Won't someone save me?
For I fear I've gone insane.
Are you still listening?
Will you help me get away?
I can't see what's coming.
And I've made a grave mistake.
How could I know that I'd
Be the one who'd let you die?
I should've known.

I saw my life flash by.
But in the end I still had mine.
Well in time I'll see the light.
Thought I know I won't make this right.
I've tried, to get you out of my mind.
I apologize to all the ones who've lost this soul tonight.

You've cast your shadow.
I've seen your face a million times.
Who decides who survives?
You've cast your shadow.
And I'm too late to make it right.
Who decides who survives?

Who survives?
Who will die?

All in vain.
Such disdain.
I won't be brought to life.

Covered in the ashes.
The memory runs past us.
I'm choking.

If I go will you survive?
Can I go, then you'll be brought to life?

Your hand weighs heavy on your heart.
Your hand weighs heavy on your life.

I won't leave, I won't leave you.
I won't leave, I won't leave you now.

You cast your shadow.
I've seen your face a million times.
Who decides who survives?
You cast your shadow.
And I'm too late to make it right.
Who decides who survives?
Track Name: A Short Dream
It may seem like you have no escape from the chaos. It may seem like you have no way out. But no matter what happens, you can always take refuge in your dreams. You will find peace.
