1. Samadhi - Prelude Can't move an inch
But for the act to
Solve mentem Leave fingerprints
A molestis Freedom farewell
Mentem ad concretum dirige Look in the lens
Unum e jhanas intra Answer the questions
Will you behave as required?
When we think the end is here
2. Resign To Surrender - A New Age Dawns - Pt. IV
With nearly all faith gone
Can't move an inch There is hope along the way
But for the act to And there a new age dawns
Leave fingerprints
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those
Freedom farewell who falsely believe that they are free
Look in the lens [Goethe]
Answer the questions
Are you a threat? Nobis victoria
Nec plus ultra Non plus ultra
After all the grabbing, it's time to bite the dust
Leave behind the breaches of my trust Now that all hands are tied
Cleaning up the mess is up to us We're panic stricken
Non plus ultra Wealth out of sight
Now that all hands are tied Demolition, the damaged pride
We're panic stricken The Price of Ambition
Wealth out of sight
Demolition, the damaged pride Access is now denied
We're panic stricken
The price of ambition Wealth out of sight
Nec plus ultra Intuition, forgotten guide
The current system leads to profit seeking deeds The price of suppression
Leave behind the traces of our blood
Now the course for change is up to us Can't move an inch
Non plus ultra But for the act to
Leave fingerprints
After all the grabbing Freedom Farewell
It's time to bite the dust Look in the lens
Leave behind the breaches of my trust Answer the questions
Cleaning up the mess is up to us Will you behave as required?

Access is now denied When we think the end is here


We're panic stricken With nearly all faith gone
Wealth out of sight There is hope along the way
Intuition, forgotten guide And there a new age dawns
The price of suppression
Terre eos vi Chasing our addictions we're stunting our growth
Augearis Once we get rid of this ballast we'll be able to
Perde eos vi Restore the balance and distribute our wealth
Nobis imperium
3. Unleashed Awareness and perception
Something we can never repair
Declining, all color fading
Defining, time coming for me Cure me, free me, help me, see me
Rescinding, my inspiration No more worry, no more losing
Receding consciousness Save me, near me, help me, hear me
No more heartache, no misery
Back in the day, I can recall that, Cure me, free me, help me, see me
My thoughts were unclouded and sage No more worry, no agony
There was no black staining the walls of my memories Save me, near me, help me, hear me
Now there's a haze pushing me sideways No more heartache, no despairing (We despair)
And leaving me nothing to gain Cure me, free me, help me, see me
Taking me back, locking me cold in disparity No more worry, no repairing (No repair)

Where was I meant to be? Freedom for me is all I'm really wanting, needing
I feel I'm lost in a dream Give me power to break out
Long for the day I can be myself I can't hold on for any longer
My time has come to end it all
When I'm free
When my sun has set No one to blame, fate's only random
Released my soul forever It's nothing we'll ever explain
I'll have no regret So it remains
To be free
I'll exist again Where was I meant to be?
No more lost endeavors I feel I'm lost in a dream
Nothing to contend Long for the day I can be myself
When I'm free Free

Color declines, all that defines me When will I be unleashed?


Is falling away, far behind It's not the way it should be
Nothing to keep me with the time, the here and now Yearning again only to be myself
When I'm free
Where am I meant to be?
I feel I'm lost in a dream Unleash my consciousness
Yearning again only to be myself
When I'm free
When I'm free When my sun has set
When my sun has set Released my soul forever
Released my soul forever I'll have no regret
I'll have no regret To be free
To be free I'll exist again
I'll exist again No more lost endeavors
No more lost endeavors Nothing to contend
Nothing to contend When I'm free
When I'm free

Time is just a concept


And always the first thing to fade
Agony and weakness
Nothing we can never evade
Years are cruel, they break us
Bringing on decay and despair
4. Martyr Of The Free Word I will do what I say
When liberty seems out of reach
Speaking interpretation We'll fight for our freedom of speech
A conversation can take a sudden turn
And reaching the point of violence
Because your silence left you without a hand to hold 5. Our Destiny

Your past will lead you on to make... So many days we've spent together
Trying to get ahead with our dreams
Making a final judgement Now we have come to the goal forgotten
Based on your bias will never bring you forward Hurting within left us torn
Terror should never guide you
For even the fearful can take a beating in the end The road is open
We find out way through ties where broken
Suspicion gets you nowhere So the means to the end
Was the peace that was meant
Those who denounce a way of life To be ours since it all began
Will stand alone
Left to atone their social blunders We fight to win
If you gun down the messenger
You guarantee that he will be made I won't give up, we'll fight to win
Into a saint To move along from where we'd been
A martyr of the free word I'll sing this song for you again
I'm looking up around the bend
I will say We're so much stronger than before
I will say what I think Our fraying edges on the mend
I will do
I will do what I say Life as we know would be so different
When liberty seems out of reach Had our paths continued the same
We'll fight for our freedom of speech Seizing the day with all that's offered
The good and the bad,
Requiem aeternam dona eis, The clear and the haze
Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis
To move along from where we'd been
Missing a simple context I'll sing this song for you again
A mental weakness can throw you out of balance I'm looking up around the bend
Listen, respect each other We're so much stronger than before
Then you'll discover Our fraying edges on the mend
It mustn't always end in hate
It's not too late for mercy Don't let go

Those who denounce a way of life So hard to face what we've done wrong
Will stand alone We shared a life that can't be
Left to atone their social blunders We cannot hide from destiny
If you gun down the messenger So hard to face what had gone wrong
You guarantee that he will be made We've got to make this work
Into a saint And give it our all
A martyr of the free word
Give our all and won't let go
I will say Waiting so long for an answer
I will say what I think We've been waiting oh, so very long and
I will do Now we're ready to accept our fate
[II. Children Of The Light]
Our melodies will be remembered Light creates us all
forever and ever Pride will make us fall
Our memories will fade away Life is meaningful
when the leaves have reached the soil Life delight us all

I won't give up this fight Light creates us all


The sacrifices made Pride divides us all
We gave our all Life is meaningful
And won't let it go to die in vain The soul survives us all

I'll sing this song again Misled by science


We're stronger than before Our wake up call
We have the chance of lifetime Conditioning cannot fool us 'till the end
We'll never close this door
[III. Bardo Thödol]
Guide us safety
6. Kingdom Of Heaven - A New Age Dawns - Pt. V through the gates of death

[I. Hold In Derision] [IV. Paragons Of Perfection]


Nothing here will be the same
Pioneering, big breakthroughs I'll see the world through different eyes and
Proceeded by the opposition I was given clarity
Hold in derision all that's new And the wisdom I can't deny
Afraid to lose their own esteem
All that we can never see
Scorn shall be directed at the genius Until we leave this frail existence
Represses subtle theories of the light Is just a shadow of reality
to the questions of life Death is not the final instance

Quantum physics lead us to It's not your time


Answers to the great taboos You have to go back... back!
We create the world around us Now!
God is every living soul
No, no, I don't want to return,
Science, spirituality please let me stay here, don't make me go back
Will have to meet along the way and
We need new drifts, another view Go back, you've got work to do
Expand our grip on the cryptic soul
We're not alone, we are all one.
Hope is more than a postponed disappointment
Nothing here will be the same
Non intellegens nil explicas The smallest bit is as big as nature
Videre nolens nil capies Our limited capacities
Non intellegens nil explicas Gives us trouble to comprehend
Incognita non vides
We are linked in every way
Open your Sahasrara And we're strong as our weakest fragment
Every word that we convey
Is an act with consequences
[V. The Harsh Return]
Why can't I bleed with you?
Light creates us all Forever I will be thrown to the wolves
Pride will make us fall They'll feed on all our dreams
Life is meaningful
Life delight us all I'll never let them stake you down
Take you down
Light creates us all I'll fight to find a way out there
Pride divides us all It must be hard
Life is meaningful I'll never let them break you now
The soul survives us all Forsake you now
Keep holding on and
Greed will make us fall
Light will bind us all Give me answers to my prayers
We'll never hide, we'll face the glare
You're the light I see to, raise the flame and blaze the
7. The Price Of Freedom - Interlude fire
Give me answer to my prayers
We'll carry all the weights to bear
8. Burn To A Cinder Give me sight to see
I know a way is there to keep the flame
Deep in the night, boundless violence will seethe with
the danger Why can't I bleed with you?
Our laws collide not allowing another contender Forever I will be thrown to the wolves
When the wine drinks itself, you will burn to a cinder They'll feed on all our dreams.
We're fighting time awaiting the answers

I'll never let them stake you down 9. Tides Of Time


Take you down
I'll fight to find a way You were always there to hold my hand
When times were hard to understand
Is there a way to turn the mind of a barbaric stranger? But now the tides of time have turned
Eternal days awaiting for you to awake, my avenger They keep changing
A cruel fate now condemns us to burn to a cinder
Are we too late, running on empty? Seasons range, but you remain the same
A steady heart, a sun to rain
I'll never let them stake you down You'll be the light that's shining bright
Take you down High above me
I'll fight to find a way out there
It must be hard Autumn gold losing hold
I'll never let them break you now We are leaves meant to fall
Forsake you now There's a meaning to all that fades
Keep holding on and
Freezing winds were stayed by warming words
Give me answers to my prayers To touch your healing to the hurt
We'll never hide, we'll face the glare I'll treasure every lesson learned to the embers
You're the light I see to, raise the flame and blaze the
fire Fight her face
Give me answer to my prayers Wash his pain
We'll carry all the weights to bear
Give me sight to see
I know a way is there to keep the flame
Fire fails, blushes pale Aiming too high
We will answer the call You are bound to fail
There's a meaning to all Patience is a vital virtue
That you'll never have
Seeds of eulogy to sow along with dreams
Fill the need that can leave us grieving alone Don't force me to believe
We're caught up in the greed
Frail is our beauty in the end 'cause I just care for me
But all we count is sentiment To break it, we'll need everyone
Think it through: unite is the only way
A memory stays to guide the way, and whisper
Don't lose sight, don't deny A raging tragedy ignored will have its justice, finally
We are leaves meant to fall Distress and poverty is everyone's disease
There's a meaning to all our We'll come to realise for all we've done
there is a price to pay
Seeds of eulogy to sow along with dreams Yet hope is never lost, there always is a way
Fills the need that can leave us grieving alone
A symphony resounding in our minds Trumping the game
Guides us through what we knew would come all a longIs no easy way
Enterprise and discipline
Sometimes I feel I don't have the words Will pay off in the end
Sometimes I feel I'm not being heard
And then I fear I'm feeling nothing more If we ever could look into fate's mirror
We would never have ended up here
Sometimes I feel I don't want this change We're distracted by every sin committed
I think we all have to rearrange It should always be ever so clear
And now I feel there's no one losing me
If we ever look
Seeds of eulogy to sow along with dreams We would never be here
Fill the need that can leave us grieving alone
A symphony resounding in our minds Don't force me to believe
Guides us though I'm never needing anyone
As you hear me I only care for me
As you do, I'm thinking through
As you need me And mine's the only way

Making true We are caught up


In our failure
What we knew would come all along Now our union
Is our savior
It's the only way

10. Deconstruct If we ever


We would never
If we could see ourselves, the mirror would reflect If we're clever
insanity We're together
Instead we camouflage the flaws that lie within
Condone the suffering we witness as we mingle
casually
We need to right ourselves, or else we will derail
11. Semblance Of Liberty We lost control of our greed
But now we face it all
Born to fight, and we're born to flee Face our fall
Doomed to live on ecstasy
Born to lie, and we're born to cheat Keeping all that we've created
Look in the mirror, who do you see? And consuming all that's possible
Reaching deep into temptation
Born to flee, and we're born to fight Nothing can stop us
Without your mask, you're terrified
Don't hide your personality Guarantee our hard-earned profits
That's who you are, your identity Multiplied ten-fold if possible
Reaching out for new redemption
If the virtues of tomorrow Nothing avails our needs
Cause the greed of today
We won't have a future My opponent won't rule out raising taxes.
Nor liberty But I will, and The Congress will push me to raise taxes
and I'll say no.
Born to breathe, and we're born to pursue And they'll push, and I'll say no, and they'll push again,
That's all we are supposed to do and I'll say to them:
The semblance of our liberty Read my lips
Is nothing more than slavery [George H. W. Bush]

Born to flee, and we're born to fight If the virtues of tomorrow


Is it failure that's our delight? Set the need on the way
Born to cheat, and we're born to lie We never had a future anyway
Look at yourself, have you lost your mind? We had no future 'till today

If the virtues of tomorrow Time and tide


Cause the greed of today Will not wait for anyone
We won't have a future
And no more liberty
12. White Waters
If the virtues of tomorrow
Set the need on the way I see a silhouette, liquid that moves
We won't have a future nor liberty Skin like a pearl in the sea
I cannot resist this, her voice in the wind
Private vice leads to public virtue But is it my eyes are deceived?
Is it you I see?
[Laughs!]
Lie down in my arms
Raised to think that we are free Trust what you see
Living in our caves Smooth your brow, you will be with me
Being slaves To find your relief

We lost control of our lives Gazing at whitecaps, coming so close


At the mercy of the waves Everything's suddenly clear
Massive waves Numb with the aching, and still I am waiting
The water is pulling me near
Blind to see what's going on Would you welcome me?
Conditioned as we are
And we are
Lie down in my arms While their own success is in their reach
Try not to breathe Don't forget you're able to
Quiet love, you are now with me Design your own universe
You need no words to speak Find your balance, sink into rumination
Ipsum te reperies
For my mistakes, I am to blame Potire mundorum
Never believed that it was all meant to fall Potire omnis mundi
I'd give my life, to have you near once again
Take me away, would you forgive me?
14. Incentive
[Bonus track]
13. Design Your Universe - A New Age Dawns - Pt.
VI How can we conduct
Symphonies of our destruction
We're blind and eager Without having a clue
Avarice will set us back to blank How to interpret the darkest notes?
Those who wager all will have to name a reason
If you can't let go, you will end up empty handed There is no need to feel so depraved
If you can't control, you'll live your life in vain A spotless disease is what I am
Who decides about my time to come? All those fools that I have enslaved
Who is able to break through the circle of life and Were so long ago already damned
doom?
Don't look back There is no need to be so engaged
Keep on track to break the curse The master of the stash is what I am
Take the chance All this distress is what I have engraved
Design your universe Is forming the path that I defend
We can't undo what we have done
So show us now what we've become Come with me, acquire the key
Confront us with our viciousness To unlock forbidden doors
And our weakness Come with me, be finally free
We can't evade our destiny The incentive, you decree
So show responsibility
For we all surely have a sense There is no need to feel so alone
Of our consciousness When your white guide knocks at the door
To take for taking's sake Don't you disappoint her, no don't you dare
Will leave a path of loss and strain She'll destroy you to the quick, to the bone
And endless breaking of faith can warrant acts of
treason Come with me, on your knees
If you can't let go, you will end up empty handed The celebration ends
If you can't control, you'll live your life in vain Come with me, never flee
Who decides about what's true or false? Save me from this
Who is able to sift through the treasures from the
flukes?
The time has come, we have to see
That total wisdom is in reach
The time has come to colour in the lines
We must identify the signs
So many people are full of hate
While love and light are in their reach
So many people will harm themselves
But life can be so beautiful
So many people will idolize
15. Unleashed (Duet Version) Time is just a concept
And always the first thing to fade
[Bonus track] Agony and weakness
[Feat. Amanda Somerville] Nothing we can never evade
Years are cruel, they break us
Declining, all color fading Bringing on decay and despair
Defining, time coming for me Awareness and perception
Rescinding, my inspiration Something we can never repair
Receding consciousness
Cure me, free me, help me, see me
Back in the day, I can recall that, No more worry, no more losing
My thoughts were unclouded and sage Save me, near me, help me, hear me
There was no black staining the walls of my memories No more heartache, no misery
Now there's a haze pushing me sideways Cure me, free me, help me, see me
And leaving me nothing to gain No more worry, no agony
Taking me back, locking me cold in disparity Save me, near me, help me, hear me
No more heartache, no despairing (We despair)
Where was I meant to be? Cure me, free me, help me, see me
I feel I'm lost in a dream No more worry, no repairing (No repair)
Long for the day I can be myself
Freedom for me is all I'm really wanting, needing
When I'm free Give me power to break out
When my sun has set I can't hold on for any longer
Released my soul forever My time has come to end it all
I'll have no regret
To be free No one to blame, fate's only random
I'll exist again It's nothing we'll ever explain
No more lost endeavors So it remains
Nothing to contend
When I'm free Where was I meant to be?
I feel I'm lost in a dream
Color declines, all that defines me Long for the day I can be myself
Is falling away, far behind Free
Nothing to keep me with the time, the here and now
When will I be unleashed?
Where am I meant to be? It's not the way it should be
I feel I'm lost in a dream Yearning again only to be myself
Yearning again only to be myself When I'm free

When I'm free Unleash my consciousness


When my sun has set
Released my soul forever When I'm free
I'll have no regret When my sun has set
To be free Released my soul forever
I'll exist again I'll have no regret
No more lost endeavors To be free
Nothing to contend I'll exist again
When I'm free No more lost endeavors
Nothing to contend
When I'm free
