Track Name: Alone
With no home you're alone
There is nothing to reach out to
We have only what we're staring at tonight
Now that nothing's turned to something
Don't you feel like you can't stand still anymore?

It's hard to find the reason why
Alone in my head, I'll take my time

The new way has arrived
I have given into my heart
It is in your hands to open up the door.
We have reached the end of our path
And I can't fight these feelings anymore.

It's hard to find the reason why
Alone in my head, I'll take my time
Track Name: Seasons Change
Days will come, Days will go
See it all pass by, through my window
Season's change, before my eyes
Never knew that one day, he would die

Stay now, through it all
You wonder, you wonder
Escape with me

Easy come, easy go
I see it all pass by from my window
The setting sun in your eye
I never knew that one day we would die, we would die

Stay now, through it all
You wonder, you wonder
Escape with me

You wonder escape with me
Escape with me
Track Name: Ellie's Big Adventure
What we can do, with our biology
Is going to shape our future
We're talking about changing ourselves
Modifying
Our genetics
And altering
Our biology
Adjusting these things
Our power to control biology
Track Name: Language
My eyes
None of these five do all i need
So trust not the outsider
Fly high
Into outer streams across the sky
Of the night

Do it not for nothing but for the high
Do it for something inside

Language I want it visible to speak to you
To show you all my mind
Language i want it visible to see you
To show the other side

Fly High
Into outer streams across the sky
Of the Night
Hold tight
Sinking old decreasing outer wings
For the flight

Do it not for nothing but for the high
Do it for something inside

Language I want it visible to speak to you
To show you all my mind
Language i want it visible to see you
To show the other side
Track Name: Keep Your Peace
Keep your piece, by your side cause you don't know what or who might
Keep your piece by your side cause you don't know you don't know

Watch your step anything can happen, you better watch yourself 2x

Keep your piece, by your side cause you don't know what or who might
Keep your piece by your side cause you don't know you don't know

Watch your step anything can happen, you better watch yourself 2x

If i could find a way, then you would be alone,
but I dont' have a choice, you stole my life from me

If i could find a way, then you would be alone,
but i don't have a choice, you stole my life from me

Well find a way x4
Track Name: Journey
I'm going to take you on a journey
Human journey
Voyage

The journey that you and I have been on
To understand
Something of our origin

I'm going to take you on a journey
Human journey
Track Name: One of These Days
One of these days I'm gonna lose it
One of these nights I'm tearing up all your dreams
I drive you away in the morning
Tomorrow comes and you will be back with me

Oh now baby couldn't shake it or break even if I tried
Let me lie to you honey say ill be right there by your side

I never even tried to lay amongst your things
I always knew that you had replaced them
Strange sensations amongst those feelings
The well is dry there is nothing left to give

Oh now baby couldn't shake it or break even if I tired
Let me lie to you honey say ill be right there by your side
Track Name: SFX
Special
FX
Machine

It challanges
The assumptions about
Conventions of space

Feeds or has been feeding
Appetite
Visual Stimulation
Track Name: Project Yourself
Immediately project yourself
Into that experience

Project yourself
and explore lots of things

Experimentation
Exploration
Creativity
Experience
Track Name: Surrender
Where did she always go, I dont care
We drifted our seperate ways, I remember those days
The fleeting glimpse shall remain, in my soul
I will always long for her, until the days of old

Only the scar remains, taste the fire and flame
Dreams that were never the same, only the scar remains

How did she never know, I'm not sure
It always puzzled, throughout eternity
I break free from her grasp, it all unfolds
My broken body hit the ground, never to be found

Only the scar remains, taste the fire and flame
Dreams that were never the same, only the scar remains
