Track Name: In Dreams
It's easier to sleep than to awake from this dream
Where everything is roaming the landscapes, within.

Do I re-live scripted feelings

In these dreams?

Where our memories confuse the seams of reality

In dreams we see inward mirrors

Of an unknown self

Sifting through the corridors of the mind

We can exit in dreams

We're all gradually awakening...
Track Name: Naked and Terrified
Born into this world
Naked & terrified
Underneath florescent skies

Given a fear
Given a lie

I wear this uniform of false allegiance
I'll never comprehend
Oh how we pretend

Continue along this narrow path
Naked & terrified
Oh how we'll continue to pretend
Track Name: Hands of Time
I watch your hands move

Second by second
Hour by hour

You dictate my movements
You sew the eye of every last sun

I still struggle to grasp
The powers we give you

Oh how it controls
Oh how it alters me

We'll step away
And forget about the hands of time
