Track Name: Unicorns
I’m walking here
Between the crystal lakes and shining skies
The view is just so wondrous
Am I invited
To stay here in this place?
I question this fantasy
And then I’m forced right back to reality

*I have reached the line
Breathed the air sublime
And I’ve just run out of time
Now I cross the line
And I’ll always find
That it’s just a waste of time

Nobody out here
Only beings mythical
And imaginary
I don’t truly belong here
But it’s just as well, I can always tell
And it’s forcing me right back to reality

*I have reached the line
Breathed the air sublime
And I’ve just run out of time
Now I cross the line
And I’ll always find
That it’s just a waste of time
Track Name: Farsight
I look away
From the shining light
And I don’t feel
Anything at all

The silence reigns
So stark and loud
I never heard any call
And now I fall

*On the darker side of life
I walk alone in shadows
Accompanied by solitude and strife
Come see the fire
That once burned deep inside
But now - it’s so cold
The fire has died

No matter what
It’ll never be enough
It’s far too demanding
And I’m far too small

The laughter echoes
From high above
I will never heed their call
Even if I fall

*On the darker side of life
I walk alone in shadows
Accompanied by solitude and strife
Come see the fire
That once burned deep inside
But now - it’s so cold
The fire has died
Track Name: Divine Deveined
Waiting for the chance
To end this foolish circumstance
It’s not like we don’t know
But something always disrupts the flow

We can’t go back in time
With how it’s gone, that’s perfectly fine
‘Cause the stars are all out of place
And the lies spill forth from every single face

*Well, I’m sick of actions
And I’m sick of words
And I’m sick of silence
Could I ever be heard?
And I’m sick of lies
Even if they’re true
And given time
You’ll get sick of me, too
Just you wait till the end of it all
Just you wait till the end of us all
Track Name: Drowning Sun
You feel so cold tonight
The world looks stranger in this light
You’re laying down on liquid ground
And slipping away on this final day
