Track Name: We Are Not Machines (feat. Lectro Dub)
The wires are live
The lights are on
I'm in the system
But something's wrong
I'm losing control of my head
Subconscious is dead
I'm logging out
I'm shutting down
Let this machine rise
From the ground
Unleashed I'm awake once again
At the start of the end

Break the rhythm
Fight the system
Let go of the chains
Before we go insane
Breathing human
The illusion
Disappeared to me
'cuz we are not machines

I'm losing sleep
Because I'm cold
I'm shining chrome now
From what I'm told
I'd call this a state of alarm
The link does me harm
I'm cutting cords
I'm setting free
The human part that's
Left of me
We're all in a spiral here
So throw a wrench in the gears

Can't you see the truth
The machines are using you
I won't bend
I'm not a mindless fleshling
They take hold
But my heart keeps on beating
I'm alive
But they are not what they seem
Listen now
And know we are not machines
Track Name: From Oceans to Skies (feat. Tarby)
Just leaving footprints in the sand
I built with my own hands
The shores of my despair
I can't believe there's nothing more
I'll struggle 'till I'm sore
To find escape somewhere

Nobody's supposed to feel like this
One's chance to shine with so much risk
It's a game of chances now
And the odds aren't on my side
Drowning, I scream for someone's aid
No one can hear the noises fade
I need the chance to rise
From darkness, from oceans to skies

I'd rise above the waves and storm
And find help to reform
The pattern that I'm in
I built this cage around my life
Gave my enemies a knife
But I won't dare fall again

Give me a chance for one last try
Play the game or we all die
The water here is rising
We've all been down and out before
So join me in the war
Against the self-destructing

Letting go of hopes divine
Giving in to dreams of mine
Spreading wings and taking flight
When the past still lies in waste
The future's something to embrace
Moving forward, shining bright
Track Name: Wicked Wicked World
The darkness
Lends an heartless drone to the endless wailing
Forgive me
For so very long I've been blindly sailing
Across your sea of broken dreams
Your darkest days and saddest scenes
Our glass house cracked
So don’t look back
It’s too late now

Here I can see you
The bitter side of me
Those whispers seep through
The evil they can't see
Sick, twisted brother
The plans have now unfurled
Vile like no other, set me free of
Your wicked, wicked world

The balance
Is thrown by your deception
I see this
In your twisted, dark perception
Don't look to me to be your guide
I'll drown you in the rising tide
So set me loose
I'll tie your noose
And bring you down

Sometimes I need to believe
That you're a separate side of me
Even if that's not true
I have to silence you
Your poisoned words infect my head
So I'll paint your black heart red
And then your wicked world
Will turn to something new
Track Name: Dragonheart
Moments pass like photographs
Like pages filled with our own pasts
You're the happy ending to this tale
And now I can't fail
I'm reckless without a plan
You know that I'm no superman
But I can keep you safe if you hold on
I know this can't be wrong

Can't do this without you
Together we can make it through
These roads around
The battleground
Chapters closed, on a new start
We're getting to my favorite part
'cuz you're the only one
Who can tame my dragonheart

Despite my strong desire
You sometimes feel my breath of fire
It doesn't mean I'm angry, just confused
I don't know to choose
Between my bitterness
And the ending that comes after this
I know I want you though it's hard to change
So let's just turn the page

Never feel like you are alone
In the midst of the fire we found home
It's our happy ending
And no one's gonna stop us now
I'm a beast with a heart that's frozen
But with you, now my eyes are open
I see the struggles coming
But we will strike them down somehow
You're the savior of
My ability to love
I found the will to change in you
Though I'm still ashamed
If how I start the flames
You accept me for what's true
Track Name: Ignorance is Bliss
Don't raise your voice
The yelling stops if we have no choice
We're using borrowed time
When no one's talking
This feels just fine
It's not ideal
But this is better than the fighting feels
I don't wanna hurt
Facing our issues
Stings so much worse

Nobody cares
If we sit and stare
At pictures of
A time we loved
But now that love ain't there
So blow me a kiss
The hurt won't exist
We can pretend
It's not the end
'cuz ignorance is bliss

Maybe it's best
To let this love die without the stress
Of shouting names and lies
Let's skip the pain
And just hold tight
Please hold your tongue
Pretending to like you is so much fun
It's fake and I know it's wrong
But no one's hurting
So play along

No, I won't let go
Just one last show
For old time's sake
You'll love me fake
Someday we'll lose
But now I choose
To believe
What I perceive
Track Name: We'll Never Know
I'm afraid we'll never know
The paths we didn't choose
I'm too scared to let it go
So long we've been confused
You hated
The way I
Never made a move without a plan
But no more
Now I'm
Just moving whichever way I can

Turning tides and
Days gone by
We'll never know
The time we wasted
Don't look back
I'm far behind
We'll never know
How far we've faded

Some would think we're still in place
But this place isn't home
I've stopped trying to show my face
Because we're so alone
I hated
The way you
Never made an effort towards tomorrow
So will you?
We know now
There is no time left to borrow

I've never known someone like you
But I hate everything we do
Nobody cares anymore
With all the secrets out the door
We'll never know what we had before
Track Name: This Means War (feat. SlyphStorm)
We are
The war's all stars
Fighting off the villainy
Of our own epiphany
No, we won't
Let our goal
Of a better system
Drive Earth to darker vision
It's a mistake
But this we can take
Race to the finish and now
We're gonna win it
Never outmatched
The best are dispatched
Avoid this cold extinction
Our world's programmed affliction

It's all coming together
The countdown's at an end
Gods and men fighting as equals
As allies, not as friends
But all it takes
To raise the stakes
Is a world worth fighting for
You've crossed a line
For the last time
This means war

Our time
Has led us to shine
The path we're on to victory
Runs with blood and misery
It's a sick game
Because death came
To the young and innocent
In this metal instrument
It's a crisis
But one we can fix
The strings that puppeteer us
Now begin to fear us
The time is now
To sort this out
A clockwork apparition
Has challenged our position

The skies are ringing with metallic singing
A binary general
The spirits are broken and the monster's awoken
Rise, synthetic devil
When the shields are shattered, our heroes battered
It seems our saviours are no more
Our magnum opus has turned against us
This means war
Track Name: The Monsters Under My Bed
It’s all in your head
He tries to say
Close your eyes
And they go away
So he locked me in
As the night begins
I see the teeth
Behind the smile
Metal ghouls
Haunt this broken child
They followed home
And I’m not alone

Don’t steal the breath
From me tonight
I’m hiding with
No means to fight
There’s someone in the hall
I can’t escape them all
I saw who killed
These twisted souls
They only haunt
The child who knows
Or are they in my head?
The monsters under my bed

It’s just a phase
They call my fear
No one can see
The evil here
A monster killed
And his victims rose
I think they want
To make me pay
For the life
That he took away
I’m not to blame
Still they play this game

I haven’t felt like this before
Nothing seems real anymore
Are they the echoes of his scheme
Or is my mind just losing steam
I’m so
Afraid
Of this feral masquerade
Take me
Take me
Let it end
Track Name: Writing on the Walls
A deadened flame
We tried to fan
But nothing can change
If no one takes a stand
They would rebel
Safe at home
But we're outside
Their comfort zone
It's all unjust
And I feel I must
Take an action towards
A brighter day
Stuck in between
The world and the screen
Life will never go your way


We're writing on the walls
But no one's looking
We're fighting for the truth
And nobody cares
We're building something new
And no one's with us
We've answered the call
But nobody's there

A world untouched
By hands that care
We live in a ghost town
And no one's scared
I'm going to try
To raise my voice
Not to strike fear
But offer a choice
So we've come this far
This is where it starts
It's a wake up call
For what's true
And I'm so betrayed
By those too afraid
To fight for the goals we pursue

Not with power
But with peace
We'll be the voice
Of the very least
So don't fear them
Just stand behind
The truth you know
'cuz you know it's right
You're reblogs, your retweets, and your hate campaigns
Don't mean anything if you just complain
Enough silence, let's band with the restless few
If the driven rise, will they rise with you?
Track Name: Promises
Just take my hand and run
Towards what our hearts have called to
The struggles that we've been through
Have made us stronger here
Broke free from those who said
We're never going to last
They hurt us in the past
But those words have disappeared

Let out a sigh
Remember the time
We fell so fast
One at a time
Our stars fell in line
And we knew we're meant to last
Mistakes we made and memories
Still with us like that summer breeze
From way back then to promises and rings
I wouldn't change a thing

I'm still a clueless fool
But you make me something better
We're more when we're together
Than we ever were apart
Now we're just gaining speed
There's so much left to do
I'm ready here with you
The one who holds my heart

So what comes next
Who knows, but I'm ready
There's so much left
We'll live, love, and carry
On with our lives
Through hard, bitter times
And hold on tight
Our memories
They made you and me
And I know we made them right
Track Name: Black Holes
I'd like to carve a hole
In my all-seeing eye
Then resurrect myself
Years after my demise
I'll be the blade that cuts
The cables from your head
Fear nothing, but embrace
The drive you feel instead


I'd like to reconcile
The conflicts in my heart
These broken lights inside
Are tearing me apart
An iron mind commands
The deeds I have to do
Black holes inside my soul
Are pulling me from you

Somewhere inside this place
You're with her, unamused
By my mistakes, the aches
Of having you to use
It's just a test, not a game
But here you've reached the end
I'm told to kill you
Though you were my only friend

Paradise
Means sacrifice
Paradise
Means ending life

I'd like to help you
I'd like to hurt you
I'd like to save you
I'd like to hurt you
Track Name: The Watcher
South winds fill the air tonight
A cold heart's lullaby
An icy figure walking
Through the city I called mine
A stream of ghastly voices
Fill the children's hearts with fear
But no one dares to harm them
For even evil left us here

Hollow paradise
A place of spirits and of ice
The lights have long burned out
But still the echoes give us light
Trapped inside a hall
With my portraits on the wall
The faces stare right back
As I hear the watcher's weary call

Still unsure what brought me here
I wander in the dust
A whisper in the wasteland
Carries through these fields of rust
He calls a boy to follow him
To a staircase up and down
He says they're moving onward
For they're sailing heaven bound

I asked the watcher
Where I'm going from this place
His faceless smile expressed
It's a journey to embrace
I'm not wicked man
But I fear the cells below
He showed me to a door
Where it leads I cannot know
Track Name: Save My Life (Bonus Track)
So much time
I had to use
What a life
I had to choose
I made mistakes, and I still do
If I only
Knew you then
I'd do it all
Over again
Just with an angel by my side

I didn't know what love could be
There's so much left for you and me
My heart is yours now
No longer empty
I was a broken, lonely soul
But you can make me whole
And you made a world of happiness from strife
What was it like to save my life?

It felt so good
Now nothing's right
Every word
Can start a fight
Feels like our love has burned out bright
I still pretend
Like we're okay
Because I'm lost
When you're away
Even though you hurt me every day

I'm sick of hurting
I'm sick of fighting
I'm sick getting up and trying
To feel in touch again
Maybe you saved me
But you won't be
The one to keep me going on
It's best to move along

I didn't know what this could be
There's nothing here for you and me
My heart is healing now
No longer empty
I was a broken, lonely soul
But now my heart is whole
Because you made a world of happiness from strife
Track Name: Dragonheart (Acoustic Version)

You know that I'm no superman

I know this can't be wrong
