Track Name: River rise
The ocean of silence, baby, is what I'm looking for
To see the fat pigs wash up at the shore
I've had enough of this haunted place
Grab the keys we're leaving soon
Leave to let the river reach the moon

Let the river rise
A thousand miles high

I've had enough of this sellout, baby
We swam too long with the crowd
Let the river swallow all our doubts

The ocean of silence, baby, is what I am looking for
To see the fat cats wash up at the shore

Let the river rise
A thousand miles high

Will we lose our path on our way into the sun
Will we lose our past or fuse it in the sun
Track Name: As the days go by
And the days go by
We're almost gone but still alive

And the days go by
We're almost gone, gone but still alive

Almost gone, almost gone but alive
Almost gone, almost gone but alive

We synchronize our hearts
We synchronize our minds
We synchronize our lives
and we'll shine on 'til the end
We are the guiding light
and synchronize our minds
Let's synchronize our hearts
and we'll shine on 'til the end

As the days go by
we're almost gone but still alive

We synchronize our hearts
We synchronize our minds
We synchronize our lives
and we'll shine on 'til the end
We are the guiding light
and synchronize our minds
Let's synchronize our hearts
and we'll shine on 'til the end
Track Name: Millionaire
Create a black hole for the poor, suck them in, erase them all
Create a black hole for our love, disintegration for us all
Pretenders gather by the fire, kill the drones and leave the hive
I kicked the dog and said goodbye, now shoot me up into the sky

I am going to wrap myself in a million dollar bill, millionaire
I am going to wrap myself in a million dollar bill, millionaire
I am going to wrap myself in a million dollar bill, millionaire
I am going to wrap myself in a million dollar bill, millionaire

Millionaire
Millionaire
Track Name: Inner sanctum
I'm sleeping wide awake
and something caught my eye
a cool jeweled moon outside and I turn
to watch you in that light

I've seen my face in your eyes
it looked like someone that I knew
a wild ocean's calm now
and I sway gently on its waves

the kids are fast asleep
and I wander back in time
moving through the years and I hear
your soft voice in my ear

stay, don't fade
stay, don't fade

I've seen my face in your eyes
reflecting someone that I knew
a wild ocean's calm now
and I sway gently on its waves

stay, don't fade
stay, don't fade
stay
stay
Track Name: Slowly backwards
Back in my home town
the children cry
in the merry-go-round

where I learned to look beyond the clouds
to where the vultures fly high

where time moves slowly backwards
then passes on without a sound

Back in my home town
the mindless ones are shuffling through the streets

where I broke up with the one girl
now kick the sparks to start the fire

a river runs through it
a dreaming snake that I would want to wake

And I wait
for the big wave
I wait
for the big wave

We're going to the place to where we started from
a river runs through it
a snake that I'd want to wake

a snake I want to wake
a snake I want to wake

We're going to the place to where we started from
a river runs through it
a snake that I'd want to wake
Track Name: Like a dog
The night crawls in, the land is dark, the lonely people roam
Another night face down on the street, I'm always on my own
I bend my neck and I start to howl at the pale and eerie moon
Welcome to the rubber room, it was made for me and you

Like a dog without a home
Like a wolf without a pack
The crows fly high

The face I see reflecting in the black eyes of the crow
looks like someone that I knew but someone that I don't know

Like a dog without a home
Like a wolf without a pack
The crows fly high
Track Name: Hekate
Dig deep in your mind my friend
will you find somebody there?
You're a weapon of mass destruction, that's clear
there's no denying there
You were taught by the ancient beast, indoctrinated
never to evolve
but there's a billion of other lives out there
that you will not command

Skies are giving birth to a raging thunderstorm
Will our shelter hold when the night evolves

You're trapped in a cage of doubt and fear
you know something is not right
but you're beyond repair, cure, redemption or solace
for that it's much too late
You're a weapon of mass destruction that's clear
there is no denying there

Skies are giving birth to a raging thunderstorm
Will our shelter hold when the night evolves
You'll leave a long trail of dead along the way
You'll leave a long trail of dead along the way
Track Name: We feed the fire
I tried to climb into the crowns of the trees
I could feel time close on my heels
I told us lies we would believe so we're free
Try to stay above the waves

With our heads up in the clouds, we forget
how the soil under our feet got spoiled
The blood of aeons on our hands, on our minds
Boil some fear from the blaze in your eyes

We are not two
We're not three or four
We're one
but whatever we are
We feed the fire
It's cruel and it's natural
and it repeats again and again

Our names were written in the sand by our hands
See the words crumble away through the waves
Life's an instrument we play more or less
out of tune bending strings into tune
There's a spark inside us all, to ignite
before it dies by the force of the tide

We are not two
We're not three or four
We're one
but whatever we are
We feed the fire
It's cruel and it's natural
and it repeats again and again

We feed the fire
We feed the fire
We feed the fire
Track Name: Broken piece of light
We shoot our leaders down and join the underground
We find ourselves a home between lava lakes and stones
We speak of love and truth, of friendship come what may
but the only thing that remains is destruction and decay

I hear them scream our names that we are the ones to blame
for a war where no one wins and all remains the same
We build up all those walls and hide under our beds
It turns out in the end it's just a shelter for the dead

We leave you behind
in the shadows of our minds
Glistening in the dew
a broken piece of light

We make our move today, remember to be brave until all colors fade
in destruction and decay
and the walls are caving in to bury everything
and the brainwashed horde outside is about to win

Release your fear

We leave you behind
in the shadows of our minds
Glistening in the dew
a broken piece of light

Broken but alive
Broken but alive
Broken but alive
Broken but alive
Track Name: One last time
Feels like I am travelling back in time
spotlights of things I've done
and now I realize
I have to end what I've begun

One last time I'll speak to you
One last time I'll come to you
One last time I'll listen, too
One last time I'll be with you

There is a lie in every truth
that's a lie anyway, are we really true?
One small thing will grow on you
one small thing can kill you, too.

One last time I'll speak to you
One last time I'll come to you
One last time I'll listen, too
One last time I'll be with you

One last time
For the last time
