Track Name: Altercation
Crippled by design.
Shadow of entropy.
Lucifer beckons me one step closer to the void.
Eternal visions of a reoccurring dream.

I am a burden draining the life from you.
I am a burden draining the life from you.
You are my anchor unable to pursue.
I am a burden. I must leave you unburdened.
The abyss that you pull me through.

I hide from the world but never you, you’re breaking through.
Oh what I’d give to be visible. I’m atypical.
Alienate, suffocate, we hallucinate together.
Lacerate, detonate, we hallucinate forever.
Track Name: Freedom Of The Conscious Mind
Awaken my soul. Relinquish control.
Abandon morality. Trapped within duality.

The Freedom of the Conscious Mind.
Deceptive voices intertwine.
Eternal nightmares plague and combine.
Oh sweet requiescence; I cast thee aside.
Forced into exile.

Awaken my soul. Relinquish control.
Abandon morality. Trapped within duality.

Floating, it beckons me closer.
Hypnotise me into the unknown.
Allow me to guide you into my world.

Keep your truth inside. Bury it deeper.
Liberated from the empty void.
How I crave lucidity.

Time to let the monsters out.
Track Name: Panic (Feat. Kaan Tasan)
Clinging to my fading grasp of reality.
Constantly falling in a perpetual cycle.
The forest knows my secret. Vultures eye up their prey.
Run and hide from the agents of atrocity.

A conscience infested by the dissonant mind.
To sink or drown. Nauseous from the vertigo.
Intrinsic is my lust for ignition.

A figure emerges, whispers gently in my ear: bury your son.
Please tell me I’m dreaming.
Bleeding hands of the gravedigger.
Temptation to pull the trigger.
Free me from the parasite.

I obeyed the commands of the shadows.
Swallowed by the soil I feel them crawling.
They’ve colonized my mind, I’m overpowered.
When will it end?

Foreign energy sedates my blood.
Slithering snake, why d’you laugh so violently?
Terror slits my thumping heart.
Why do your bones crack so seductively?

Sinking into quicksand. I gave into your twisted game.
Trees stare at me with green eyes of menace.
Prisoner of paranoia.
Track Name: The Difference Between Drowning And Sinking
I confess to the ocean, a monumental epiphany.
A dark premonition my mind could not escape.

Get this insect out my head. Wiring malfunction.
Nothing more than damaged goods. My conscience fluctuates.
Fight it, we can always fight it back
But there will come a time, when everything else shatters
On a knife’s edge we will sway. One will betray.
Who will evade? Escape to the shade.

When will I crumble into pieces. Is it inevitable?
Both live in fear of their counterpart.
Are we deadlocked forever or is collapse inescapable?

Follow your heart, never your vile instinct.
Cling to all inner tranquility.
Reject the control of the depraved. Who have I become?
I can’t be saved.

Pull me out of this trench, I’ve dug for myself.
What is the difference between drowning and sinking?
So many lost pieces of a jigsaw I’m trying to build.
No end in sight, no hope for flight.
A broken mind of guilt.
There’s an insect in my head, pulling the strings.
I’m a ticking time-bomb, floating to the edge.
Suffocation, asphyxiation. The final salvation.
But if I can arise from this struggle I can do anything.

React, Evolve.
Collide, Betray.
Destroy.

Follow your heart but never your vile instinct.
Cling to all inner tranquility.
Reject the control of the depraved. Who have I become?
I can’t be saved.

This is the moment of collapse.
