Track Name: Rememory
Try to breathe under the water
Try to live under no sky
Breathe the ashes, smoke and cinder
Bow to hegaiamas

The kings of old, they bleed through my skin
Bleed through space and time gone cold
A crown of stillness burning through the aftermath

Designed to suffer in silence, is this the life that you’re asking for?
Our voices caught in the distance
Bleeding, screaming, cynical
All I can see through this madness
In desperation forevermore
A warning call for resistance
Hoping, crying, take me home

I can feel it haunting me, I can feel it haunting me

In darkness we bleed the fear of loneliness and what is yet to be
In dreaming we see that from a window to a distant memory we fly

We’ve been trying to live in peace
Beyond this blue horizon
All I ever tried to build
A kingdom for our souls to dream

And yet we suffer in silence, it’s not the life we were asking for
Our voices lost in the distance
Bleeding, screaming, cynical
We’re living trapped in this madness
In desperation forevermore
And now we long for resistance
Hoping, falling but still

In darkness we bleed the fear of loneliness and what is yet to be
In dreaming we see that from a window to a distant memory we fly

In the darkest corners of my mind
There lie the shadows that keep pulling me inside
And I can see them every time I close my eyes
The lights won't open and their voices keep on calling me
Haunting me
I can feel them haunting me forever

Rememory

In darkness we bleed the fear of loneliness and what is yet to be
In dreaming we see that from a window of a distant memory we fly
Track Name: Alltribe
I woke up inside an unspoiled land
The air was clear I stared into the sun and I felt free
Had a dream of when it all began
Blackness all around me stars like little grains of sand
It felt so real
Like coming home

We're flowing under the tides of starlit skies
We’re glowing under a light that keeps on

Pulling us to the ground
In space and time we’re floating and what we’ve found
A land where we’re all one

It keeps on pulling us to the ground
In space and time we’re floating and what we’ve found
A land where we’re all

You were there we’re lying side by side
Try to hold my breath and take it all inside
So much to grasp, so much to learn
Felt the world was pumping in my chest
Like I’m giving birth to all that is and all that ever was
I saw it clear
I saw it all

We're flowing under the tides of starlit skies
A light keeps spinning, so near and yet so far

Far beyond the past we left behind
There lies a distant field where light will shine so bright
Waiting for us to arrive

We're flowing under the tides of starlit skies
We’re glowing under a light that keeps on

Pulling us to the ground
In space and time we’re floating and what we’ve found
A land where we’re all one

All is one is all is one is…
Track Name: Therianthrope
We want to live in your head
We want to see freedom dead
You can’t decide on your own
There’s no one there you’re alone

Dreams burst in my eyes
Time explodes
Life is passing by
Blow by blow

They keep calling calling in my skin they’re crawling
Little people preaching from their pulpits all made of lies
No escape and no release
Now this void of nothingness wants me

No, don’t scream in my head
Your voice is killing me
Leeches feed on my brain
Take your rotten filthy show
Can’t take it anymore
Just set me free

Lost this fight so long ago
Long before I opened up my eyes
No one told me when the lines were drawn
Yet no one contemplated our demise

Nothing more feel I pumping in my veins
Left alone
Will you ever get away from me
Who am I just a number in your fucking game
Lost in time, I hate everything you stand for

They keep calling calling in my skin they’re crawling
Little people preaching from their pulpits all made of lies
No escape and no release
Now this void of nothingness wants me

No, they keep crawling in my skin
No, they keep haunting me forever
This void of nothingness just pulls me in
There’s no escape, there’s no escape for me
Track Name: Riverthane
We build these thorns round our heads
And we hold on tight to our kingdoms
Deep in solitude we do confide
And now apathy becomes our god

Endless nights that lead to endless mornings
Filled with words from poets of the fall
Even though the water gave its warning
We were blind to heed the call

A cry for mercy from the bottom of a burning, bleeding heart
And who would know this, where we turn to in a time we yearn for change
A cry for freedom from the cruelty of this world we’re sinking in
And who will tell us where the hell we go from here

We live estranged from our brothers
Because all is mine and mine is all
Now the battle rages on and will go on forever
Until there’s nothing more to die and there is nowhere else to go

Darkest skies that lead to darker mornings
And there’s no one there to stop the fall
Who can see the light in years of scorning
Who erased the writings hammered on the wall

A cry for mercy from the bottom of a burning, bleeding heart
And who would know this, where we turn to in a time we yearn for change
A cry for freedom from the cruelty of this world we’re sinking in
And who will tell us where the hell we go from here

I can’t recall those words that lead to nothing
These times when we feel small
In tears the answers flow

Moments wasted in anticipation of a brighter future that will never dawn
Still it echoes in me, loud as can be
The only truth that
Alone we stand and fall
Cause no one heard the call
Track Name: Tilikum
A lonely nature’s cry, a silent warning
A bloodless murder right before my eyes
With no one asking why we bleed for the fallen
The noise of guilt is echoing inside

Why did we come down to this?
Deaf, blind, sedated
How is failure now the norm
We should all be locked away left isolated
Now humanity has failed
We all have failed

I will destroy this mortal flesh that stands before me
I will avenge the years of suffering
Grey, the shade of light when you stand near me
Black is all that’s left when I am gone

Why destruction is the core of our existence
How can’t we all understand the way it ends from here
Hate has broken us inside with no resistance
Hope’s been proven nothing more than notions obsolete

And still the noise of guilt it echoes

I will destroy this mortal flesh that stands before me
I will avenge the years of suffering
Grey, the shade of light when you stand near me
Black is all that’s left when I am gone

I will destroy (I will destroy)
I will avenge (I will avenge the years)
Grey be the light (the years of pain and)
black all you’ll see forever
Track Name: Hegaiamas
We come from planes afar
What makes us who we are
Remind us what we are
In dreams we’ve gone so far
Hegaiamas

Try n breathe under the water
Try n live under no sky
Breathe the ocean sail the rain and drink the stars

Slowly there’s sunrise in my head
Thoughts inside without me there’s nothing
Building the bridges I once dreamt
One command that screams loud, I AM

Dig deep, far beyond the dreaming
Dig deep and tell me what you see
Dig more, kill your thoughts and feelings
Your truth is what you need to find

It is all a game, and it never ends it’s all in vain
Tired and weak of trying
Still I’m moving on and there’s nowhere yet that I belong
I keep on fighting

Standing alone, I still remember longing for home
One thousand years ago

No fear, learn to obey
don’t cry you must fight
Don’t run, live through your past
You don’t die, we don’t die
I’m scared, darkness in me
The battle carries on

Who knows us, who knows the place we come from, the origin unknown
Who falls down, who loses ground when all is said and done I stand alone
I stand alone
Dreaming of a place we called our own

Where we go I do not know don’t stop don’t ask
The wheels keep turning as the earth keeps spinning
There’s no beginning there’s no end it’s only here and now
This moment is forever, forever

Don’t stop the fight is never ending
Don’t stop for life is now your own
Though wind and snow we’re marching onwards
With eyes ablaze and no time left to lose

It is all a game, and it never ends it’s all in vain
Tired and weak of trying
Still I’m moving on and there’s nowhere yet that I belong
I keep on fighting

Standing alone now I remember I found my home
One thousand years ago

Die every day, be reborn every day. Deny all you have every day. The ultimate virtue is not to be free but to fight for freedom. There are two forces in the universe. One that drives us downwards, wants us to be still, to stop, to die. The other wants us to push upwards, to breathe, to live. And here we are, standing between those immense voids and all we can do is dance and cry and sing.

A song for freedom, a song for freedom we will sing.

I would spend forever and a day, I’d pay the price I’d have to pay
to find a tiny piece, a fragment of truth in this world of illusion
this life of confusion there’s got to be more than this,
I could be more than this I.
So I’m pouring my eyes out, I’m pouring my heart out, just for a chance to sing.

A song for freedom, we will sing a song for freedom.

Try to breathe under the water
Try to live under no sky
Breathe the ashes, smoke and cinder
Bow to hegaiamas
