Passing off into the lost voids afar My loneliness forever made these stars Which is unclear to all and most will see The roots cave in from beneath the tree Distorting smoke drifts up so high Only to reveal the true colors of the sky Which has only made my eyes see That those colors have now faded away An epidemic placed in the sky The colors are now black and white The vibrant energies all around me Has made me feel incomplete (Solo: Anthony Delorenzi) (Solo: Sean Murray) (Solo: Anthony Delorenzi) (Solo: Sean Murray) The dark has a passion for fear It is vital like a flawless kill With the fire to inspire your will Lost is the light Failing to maintain the dark vital flame As I lose myself within the strain
The deceit within my life Vital tethers sever From ignorance, and draws a new line to volition Trained to be naive It reveals the space Between the sun and I When I witness further stars I question just how far they are Each season passes by just as time ceases to mind Making me experience insignificance Portraying divinity paradox, wrapped in deceit Making a striking gift for all to receive Straying catatonic eyes formulate a haven Where belief becomes reason Astral bodies fill the space in front of me All too human within this state of being To remain on this earth and realize that I will never understand My eyes have betrayed me for the last time I will seek the truth For this universal connection Convection of the stars No destination, no longing, no hope The grass grows and the water flows Yet I still feel alone In this universe where I accomplish nothing So secure with a meaning A question drops, and the definition fades Into a lacuna where dreams may rest For nonsense is the soul And character is nothing more Than a meaningless representation of our ego In my empire of shadows where night and day are both false No life dwells here as loneliness feeds on me In my empire of shadows On my throne of regret Where the sun bleeds Where life is obsolete (Solo: Anthony Delorenzi) (Solo: Sean Murray) My darkest days were given to me By the ignorance of others who could not see That my path is grandeur in the eyes of god And the heinous deserve the loss of their heart For putting me on this throne of blood The last offering I see as I reach for the stars When I can finally leave, and have a new start
A lost idea provides exposure to a consciousness unknown Can finding a lost thought, bring peace of mind? So lost and wrong with my life... Struggling for my vanity Has only made my uncertainty To lessen the longing that I’ve had before ...I’ve lost the thought We need our original definition A premonition from the stars Will the architect help us? A journey through time and space To make us realize our fate Mankind lost all meaning Our thoughts are decaying Nothing left, no hope remains Still pondering what he was saying We have come so far it seems Only to, lose our minds this way Our instincts have grown dull Just like our barren dreams (Solo: Sean Murray) Too extreme are our needs To fulfill pointless conceptions No one understands the full-life connection Disconnection complete Come down from the heavens Come down and save humanity While we are living to die Come take me away from this place No truth holds here Only the premonition Which is still unclear Will our bones crumble beneath the fall? Or feed our fevered likes underneath it all? (Solo: Sean Murray)
Fallen... 07:36
I closed my eyes and lost the day Engulfed by earth, I began the rain That draped the sun And masked the moon With its infernal tears Fallen, where flowers once bloomed A nightmare conquers the sun As it takes another one Beneath the soil To suffer the turmoil And as I turn within my grave I loathe the haze that clouds the world Sleeping with the fallen ones To track the stars That my blinded eyes can't follow To gain the universe Endlessly merciless as it begins The storm never ceasing as it rots my skin My soul will never rest Among these mindless dead That steal my heart Like a flower fallen from its tree I'll find my end Lost faith in the sky Because the tears never dried That soaked the earth around me What dragged me down with the sun? (Solo: Sean Murray) Then on my darkest day You came and saw my grave A stranger with a name Of whom the storm had not stained You brought a new light Life reaches through earth and touches the sky Then when I looked around I had found you were gone I opened my eyes and found the day Released from earth, you ended the rain Now the sun can shine And the moon can see With its longful tears Fallen, where flowers surround me I slept with the fallen ones And I gained the world Now I have a new faith Hoping the story will be told... (Solo: Marlon Jeffers)
