Track Name: Mantra
Who am I to decide what to make of this life so I choose to become someone I want to follow but when asking my reflection in the mirror-glass is it my conclusion when I hear myself: you must go astray you must find another way can't be looking so straight ahead you are walking on steady ground that is keeping you safe from harm make it your mantra:

I am the force at the source of all life - I make it my mantra I am the cause to the turning of time - I make it my mantra so when I now decide what to make of this life I make it my mantra and when facing my reflection in the mirror-glass I make it my conviction oh, no questions asked

I won't be led astray I'll just find another way no more losing out to the past and we're standing on the mark that is making for a better start let's make it our mantra I am the force at the source of all life - I make it my mantra I am the cause to the turning of time - I make it my mantra that is keeping me safe from harm now hear my mantra: I am the force at the source of all life I am the cause to the turning of time so when I now decide what to make of this life I make it my mantra
Track Name: Prototype: Homo Sapiens
A blank spot in time not yet defined you came here - but you're not that certain of how you arrived can barely describe you want to but there's just an empty hole a shimmering light still filling your eye or is all that noise your thoughts when (you) end up being a a prototype -

a model for the whole human kind the dna is the core design genetic code to identify where am I - the ones that occupy planet Earth so every piece is a whole lot worth to make this research secure and safe these entities have the tools to scrape among a million trillion species who's the one to come alive with flesh and bone, fully grown - and breathing waking up all frozen senses but that body keep no soul is life and death a time exchange - another side?

inhale - exhale - inhale I feel the air in my veins oh - running to my head I walk, walk into an open space embodying myself it's a rare touch, it's a short cut we have already touched this ground a familiar sound communication oh with thoughts we talk circles of lights turn in the sky - white windows - and there's not a single cloud no fog, no disguise been chosen to find this angle, where there is no room for doubts coming for more shining down on the life of a mind and body keeping a soul, shivering from the cold fast running - with words unspoken (you) end up being a a prototype -

a model for the whole human kind lead: where am I - the dna is the core design genetic code to identify can't deny the ones that occupy planet Earth so every piece is a whole lot worth lead: where am I - to make this research secure and safe these entities have the tools to scrape among a million trillion species I'm the one to come alive with flesh and bone, fully grown - and breathing waking up all frozen senses and this body keeps a soul is life - and death a time exchange - another side? ah, ah inhale - exhale - inhale ah, ah we have already touched this ground exhale - it's a rare touch, it's a short cut cause we we have already touched this ground inhale - exhale - inhale

Track Name: Make Gravity Rule Sanity
A trick of the light can fool the eye I holster my reaction for a while the very first reflection can look a little darker in the light the sentence of suspicion is turning any day into a night and we need the rules that make for gravity to be the same that rule sanity

I swear a word is a sword in a mouth that only knows a lie only knows a lie in a way the whole humanity is below its full capacity if we can't tell a pure heart from one that's on a hate crusade - crusade.... prejudices - we don't see them - inherited - when we breathe them can't get rid of - opinions that've become ours - without our knowledge a touch of a hand can change a life takes so little now, takes so little now

can make the whole difference and decide the cover and protection of anyone who dares to say it loud the complex system - of existence shedding light on any doubt and we need the rules that make for gravity to be the same that rule sanity I swear a word is a sword in a mouth that only knows a lie only knows a lie in a way the whole humanity is below its full capacity if we can't tell a pure heart from one that's on a hate crusade make gravity rule sanity make humany feel te empathy again make gravity rule sanity that's what we need, my friend a trick of the light can fool the eye - can fool the eye so I, I holster my reaction for a while nothing is what it seems, no yet - something means - what it feels
Track Name: Ritual Dance
Ritual, ritual dance the ritual dance ritual, ritual dance the ritual dance dance the ritual dance dust is dancing in the aisle of a shrine nodding heads turn the rules of time silence act as their witness as they're kneeling down onto the floor about to give away the word

Who's gonna be the first who's gonna break the curse whatever we have been we're no longer who's gonna come on through step into the view you better prove real soon that you belong here here another guest we bring seraphs of celestial wing so mote it be... (begin you) - is this an act of your own free will and accord? let us know - by the benefit of the password ritual.

Ritual dance the ritual dance ritual. ritual dance the ritual dance what you do to get into what you do to get into the inner circle introduce somebody - never lose nobody - ritual, ritual closing doors - only heaven knows what's been understood what's been undertaken here - stays no report, no explaining facts you come - you leave - alone
Track Name: Ruins of Babel
Letters make a language rhyme make way for a troubled mind by the sound we know -- what's being defined if it's for the intended one - in its spoken mother tongue no borders in lack of words to describe with monuments to glorify our pride -

the goal - only to satisfy the hunger of our eyes - a passing victory disorder in the ruins of Babel we still reach for each other then again we can't speak about the same when we fail to understand the most common sense in the aim to reach God we can't talk to our neighbour! travelling beyond the horizons passing each other in starships ja - nej oui - no si - non nein - ja no

yes people of a distant land waiting to be shaking hands with a man of a name promising a change about to touch the ground with their eyes towards the sun, about to touch the ground a stranger
Track Name: Origin
Past present history an endless mystery creator of destiny never ending infinity beginning believe in origin now being in oblivion no revealing of secrets and dreaming once upon a time we were magnificent and innocent - and in some sense - think we still are but we've come too far away,

too far away from the beginning the origin not seeing the meaning of living we give in then failing to notice the chances, the choices ah-ah-ah-ah so blinded find her! beginning believe in origin now being in oblivion no revealing of secrets and dreaming once upon a time we were impeccable , sensational and in some sense - think we still are but we've come too far away, too far away from the beginning

the origin past present history an endless mystery creator of destiny never ending infinity we've come too far away, too far away oh - from the beginning the origin past present history an endless mystery creator of destiny never ending infinity

Track Name: A Given Oath
Solemnly declare, forever be aware of this promise turned into letters on a stone engraved for eternal life these echoes of a lullaby a haunting whisper that just cannot be denied eye to eye -

you and I we're filling the hole we need to rely in our souls making it unforgettable not to remember that: a given oath, a secret hold, that thou swear to keep untold never once ever utter a single quote of hush keep in mind at all times break no pact keep in mind at all times with just one breath keep in mind at all times oh we can throw it all away keep an open eye every waking hour not to miss out any signs of subtle change steady on the guard ready - close and far never laying down the arms. to rest this case

Track Name: Sacred Sacrifise
Three holy eastern men were meant to live to tell were chosen before time to be ready for the sign There - under a starbright sky they found this babyboy And already they knew why he had to be born outside

born with a mission that had to different the Strongest conviction another opinion that had to be carried out no matter what sacred he came to be sacrificed sacrifice for his views, for the thoughts that he got sacred a sacred sacrifice he was falling to rise a sacred sacrifice sacred oh.. and every century has its share of agony who would have thought that we were to be so many that had be conquered, slaughtered and abandoned

There – under a heavy sky heads down, eyes on the ground flames burning them to the bone 1st stone’s already thrown where dark fears light the most someone's returning back its ghost Torn to pieces beyond recognition at any suspicion – hunted down for confession no matter the cause - always bending the laws they had to be sacrificed for their views, the fact they were standing out sacred a sacred sacrifice - when becoming too wise hated, blamed for telling lies no mercy - no compromise no! destined to become a sacred, a sacred sacrifice where dark fears light the most someone's returning back its ghost
Track Name: Tales of sin and virtue
In a haze - but she's awake sees them pull away white dresses in the doorways, can't tell which side yet - of heaven's gate behind her heavy eyelids life's repeating, choosing dear clips soft focus sound of laughter desperately holding onto a past and remorse ain't no friend only a shadow of the blame, a life for a life regrets don't pay for: Tales of sin and virtue good and evil too - the guilt of deadly sins - are fighting over me and you anyone without it would pass unnoticed here there's no need to shout it we're doomed to hurt - once we care

Lust - Anger - Pride - Sloth - Envy - Gluttony - Greed the mind's a battlefield but in possession of all the keys so redemption, absolution in fact can be achieved when life returns its light it's every color - in the skies beyond time - no more plans peacefully coming to terms with the end but the thoughts interfere so a pause is just the same a life for a life forever stained with... forgive me for I have sinned - sinned - sinned - sinned Lust - Anger - Pride - Sloth - Envy - Gluttony - Greed
