Track Name: The Burning Sun
the edges of eternity
guide my neverending journey
through this lifeless unreality
distances far beyond infinities

for aeons after aeons
I've searched for what cannot be found
stars born as my silent companions
I'll keep on reaching forevermore

been distanced from your kind
once set in motion
the fall would never end
and what was never there
will never be missed
I'll be the last to accept my fate
sum of the past, the now
and the future
still balanced on my shoulders
and you will never see
the burning sun in me
I'll be the last to accept my fate here

closer, further
the drifting pulse
of the universe
peaceful, endless
the silent noise
fills my heart
and you will never see
the burning sun in me

for aeons after aeons
I've searched for what cannot be found
stars born as my silent companions
I'll keep on reaching forevermore

talk to me
am I the chosen one?
come set me free
so many years have gone

talk to me
am I the chosen one?
I need to hear
my solemn work is done

sacrificed
all for life
infinity
opens before me

evolutionary progression
through this relentless defiance
redefining the human mind
while eternity spirals on and on

been distanced from your kind
once set in motion
the fall would never end
and what was never there
will never be missed
I'll be the last to accept my fate
sum of the past, the now
and the future
still balanced on my shoulders
and you will never see
the burning sun in me
I'll be the last to accept my fate here
Track Name: 0
what would you say to a man
who knows the night promises no morning
drawn from the failures of humanity
he seeks no beginning nor the end
Track Name: Downward Spiral
what would you say to a man
he seeks no beginning nor the end

a man with no heart feels no loss nor gain
as life with no purpose sees no completion
a stagnant mind will bind the perfect soul
again you fail, every day you're less

with wings built for a downward spiral
downward spiral
and I refuse to look the other way
the other way

I refuse

with wings built for a downward spiral
downward spiral
and I refuse to look the other way
the other way

now look inside;
the truth cannot be perceived from the outside
for you are a god
the limits set for you are nothing more than a crafted illusion
disconnect and discover your true potential
and the universe will be merely a projection of your consciousness
embrace your singularity and let go

this time around
there will be no
burning bridges
for I built none

nothing in this world is forgotten
you'll prove your worth, justify yourself
revelationary euphoria
you're on your own, find your inner sun

with wings built for a downward spiral
downward spiral
and I refuse to look the other way
the other way

closer now
to the light
not too late
for my way

now that you are gone
no one holds me down
reassuring me
of my destiny
Track Name: Conclusion
it is the pale light in the distance
drawing you closer
it is pure silence down to an atom
not looking back

it is the burning sun within
guiding the way
it is a hopeful hand reaching out
pushing the veil aside

it is a halo of bliss
trusting in you
it is the eternity of existence
joining future lives

it is an evolutionary bridgehead towards creativity

endlessly fueling the war of self
a punishment from god to another
forever reaching, never satisfied
it is a door being closed for a lifetime
