Track Name: A Perfect World
My life has been a living lie,
Mankind has lost the will to try,
Everyday is getting out of hand
And I'm losing my mind

Spending everyday
Knowing that I'm just like all the others,
Leaving no time
For any other man but me

My picture of a perfect world
Has faded away with age,
What used to give me hope
Has now filled me with rage

Inherently selfish is the man
Who does not wish to understand
That those
Who have a purpose, have everything to lose,
We all think and act for those we love
Without thinking of what they truly feel

My picture of a perfect world
Has faded away with age,
What used to give me hope
Has now filled me with rage

My picture of a perfect world
Has faded away with age,
What used to give me hope
Has now filled me with rage
My picture of a perfect world
Has faded away with age,
What used to give me hope
Has now filled me with rage
Track Name: The Stranger You Became
Your warming gaze breaks this murky haze;
Your gentle laugh brings good memories back to mind
But there's something about you that I can't deny,
And every day it breaks me down inside

Every day you bring me closer and you drive me farther away
It's not the way you are it's just the things you choose to say...
That kills me every day...

I've reached the breaking point
'Cause I don't know who you are anymore
I used to know your name,
Now I only know of the stranger you became

Every day you bring me closer and you drive me farther away
It's not the way you are it's just the things you choose to say...
Track Name: The Traveler - Part 1
I. The Wasteland

Meandering across the barren wasteland of his life;
His eyes are filled with darkness and he longs to see the light,
His heart is un-conformed by those who see with narrowed sight,
He moves in endless circles to escape his cornered fight

Desperately he longs to flee, escape this battered land,
To leave behind the people who could never understand
He stands alone against the tide,
And he has nothing left hide
He chooses not to be without a choice,
To follow now the guidance of his voice;
The world is new, he’s ready to be free

He travels now to unknown places, eyes are filled with light
The world is suddenly renewed against the blackest night
He’s living in the world that he had always dreamed,
But suddenly he finds out that nothing’s what it seems.

And all at once, the world is filled with emptiness alive,
The world he thought would save his soul has sent him back to die
“You’ve torn down all these prison walls and yet you were misled,
For all along the prison walls were deep inside your head”

Desperately the Traveler runs away from stranger grounds,
And suddenly he finds the raging tides have pulled him down
He is traveling empty roads,
Seeking out his empty home
He chooses now to be without a choice,
To live in fear and sacrifice his voice,
And nevermore, the Traveler will be free
Track Name: The Traveler - Part 2
II. Paradise

He closes his eyes one last time
As he prepares to die,
All feeling's gone as waits for the end,
He's finally ready to transcend

When the moment finally arrived,
He was freed of his troubled mortal life,
And he never felt so alive
As he did the day he chose to die,
As he did the day he closed his eyes

When he opened his eyes,
He could finally see for the first time
Forgetting the mistakes of his past,
The Traveler ran through the golden fields of the afterlife
And the air was filled with the warmth
Of a thousand rays of light
He was is paradise,
Living life at last

When the moment finally arrived,
He was freed of his troubled mortal life,
And he never felt so alive
As he did the day he chose to die,
As he did the day he closed his eyes

III. The Void

Standing on the edge of his existence and the void,
His mind is filled with memories of the life he once enjoyed,
His heart has finally found its way; the path is straight ahead,
The final chapter of his life is waiting to be read

He travels now to time a space; the stars have turned to black,
And running through his memory, he longs to journey back
To distant lands, to spirit skies; to things that light could show,
But tall before him is the blackest night he's ever known

He travels now to time a space; the stars have turned to black,
And running through his memory, he longs to journey back
To distant lands, to spirit skies; to things that light could show,
But tall before him is the blackest night he's ever known
Track Name: A Puzzle
I feel so lost, even though there's no reason
All alone, but I don't know why
Each day passes with the same empty feeling
Getting nowhere, even though I try

The world that we live in is so practical and hurried,
So we hold on to things we think are true
But we are unwilling to search for other answers
In the dark; down unfamiliar avenues

But I've seen the light in the darkness;
Now I see what was impossible before
The time has come to stop wasting time
Now I know that holding on is letting go...

Don't hold on to anything
'Cause nothing ever lasts
Live life while it's happening
'Cause mistakes die in the past

But I've seen the light in the darkness;
Now I see what was impossible before
The time has come to stop wasting time
'Cause now I know that holding on is letting go...

But I've seen the light in the darkness;
Now I see what was impossible before
The time has come to stop wasting time
Now I know that holding on is letting go...
Track Name: A Search For Reason
I stare across these barren seas;
The sunlight path, alight
It glimmers with insistence,
As my soul gives way tonight
Along the 'luminating trails,
I venture for the key
The answers hidden deep within
Defy mortality

This longing for a purpose and a meaning in this life
Has occupied the corners of my mind
And though my mind has wandered far, I feel that I am still
Struggling with an ever-fading will

And maybe all we do will have no meaning in the end,
But life is not defined by life alone
And if all that we do is confined within our minds...
Then I'll carry on...

And doubt is the enemy
Against the strength in security
And reason is a foolish friend
When there's no reason at all
And in this great affinity
For fabricated reality
When knowledge can provide no more
Will hope become our cause?

Maybe all we do will have no meaning in the end,
But life is not defined by life alone
And if all that we do is confined within our minds,
Then I'll carry on
And maybe all we do will have no meaning in the end,
But life is not defined by life alone
And if all that we do is confined within our minds,
Then I'll carry on...

And in this great, delusional dream,
My soul has found its way
Against the odds of the unknown;
My ignorance remains
And solace comes from hidden truth
In all that I don't know
The seeds of life are planted in me,
Waiting now to grow...
