The Light That Blinds
- these lyrics are exactly correct they are right from the album cover-

A crack in the foundation
Fault line through your defenses
Illuminating the essence
Once clouded by a myth

Store bought conformity
Force-fed duality, I warp reality

The comfort, that you will find
As you remain hidden
The light bertrays,
casting your true self away
They remain blinded

As vanity posesses me
I am turning further away
gripped by a belief in empty words
Driven by a need to prove

The shell may wither
But the fire burns eternal.

you hide behind
The light that blinds

will never find
what burns inside
you remain blind
behind the lightback to top
Enlightened By The Cold
Shadows Fall
The War Within
Enlightened By The Cold

When you never know
Is when it's always there,
It seemed so clear...

The slightest tough
To catch the breath,
It turns all around

Single path that i can see,
Emptiness devours me.

Enlightened by the cold
It overcomes the torment
(What if i could bring you back?)
Enlightened by the cold

Enough to burn through walls
Built on anguish
Can I be revived?

Let it hit with force
Strong enough to blind,
The numbness heals.
My worth is only defined
by the next disasterback to top
What Drives The Weak
this time released secruirity
controled dose of tranquility
forgetfullness washes over me
put to rest the voices of insanity

only the cinders remain
as another night
becomes a yesterday

COME ON! anesthetize the panic
it is what drives the weak
YOU'RE GONE! anesthetize the panic
putting all uncertainties to sleep

not an altered state of mind
but a safer place in an unsafe world
within the nearness of death
rapture in the skip of a heartbeat.back to top
Impermanence is always swift
Treasures of this world are fleeting
Our eyes blinded from the gift
Within the way there lies the meaning

All natures are pure
All apperances are empty.

Shrouded in sensation and delusion
Consumed within the unknowns
Shrouded in sensation and delusion
All iwll collapse and fall

All wisdom is tresured
All wealth is a shadow

Inexspressible in words
Embrace the stillness
Endless source, Eternal bliss

Absence of the mind is liberation.back to top
Inspiration On Demand
Where has it gone?
Have all of the words escaped?

Inspiration on demand
Emotions all displaced

'And i will wander endlessly
Seeking all the answers the I let slip
through my fingers.
I will wander endlessly
Seeking all the answers that
I let slip and fall away.'

Turn it all around
It melts into sound
(Unfolding...ever growing)

Torn from my rest
Though I still fight to stay.
The images dissolve
As the day invades

A second to react
The mind too slow to act
(Unfolding...ever growing)

A vicious thirst to know
The answers dreams may hold
(Unfolding...ever growing)

Drown the voices of restraint
Make them choke to silence

Incinerate the ropes
And embrace the hope
(Unfolding...ever growing)

Splintering the doors
Free the mind to soar
(Unfolding...ever growing)

Turn it all around
It melts into soundback to top
The Power Of I and I
we are givin the gift of creation

we are givin
all of the light
and purity of the universe

we are ones
who will create
the snarling beasts of human nature

the world within myself
the power of I and I

True piece of mind
Is not bestowed
upon us by the heavens

hiding the purity that flows
from the root of which we rose

ALL IS ONEback to top
Ghosts Of Past Failures
The ghosts of past failures

Facing the reality
Of our own imperfections

The waves crash without warning

Overwhelmed and short of breath
Never able to escape
The bloodstans upon your hands

I AM! Still bleeding you
From wounds you've never known.
I AM! Still bleeding you
From wounds you've never known.

The core of our being
Torn out and cast aside

I never looked this far away
Never saw what lies agead
I the midst of false comfort
The scars were hidden but never healedback to top
Eternity Is Within
Man has programmed himself to die.
A death wish has been ingrained.
Almost with our first breath,
We are taught to expect our last.

Science has done its best to choke off
The true instincts of mankind
Death is impatient and thoughtless
Mortality is a disease of the mind

Embrace the gifts before you.
Paradise is underfoot
Eternity is within.

Lost site of the bounty before us
Boundless resource of pleasure and pleny
Living for an intangible

In a future clouded with doubt.

One step forward is one step deeper into the grave

Breath... breath of life.back to top
Those Who Cannot Speak
Scream out against the glass
The sound reflected unable to escape
Desperate to connect
Lashing out at words that fail to appear

Bound in silence
The failure of sound (never learned)

Instinct urges on
As the mind creates its own obstacles
Waging internal war
Between the objects and the abstract

Eloquence of the inner voice
The poetry of the condemned
A stream of consciousness
Never to be understoodback to top
