Anamnesis 02:05
I trusted you never never again You can't hear me when I speak of you the sky darkens We know in passing of time no heart mends Silently at water's edge in the end as in the beginning
2.
Frontera 05:47
In our space-time continuum continually redefined Assign the greatest fault as mine You're everlasting, ever passing by But I've lost you again I've lost you again Error made an era's end Now the bitter medicine In a grand flight from your decisions The mission of a misguided mind I recognize you not the slightest You are not as you describe I've lost you again I've lost you again Error made an era's end Now the bitter medicine Cruzando la frontera I've lost you again I've lost you again I've lost you again I've lost you again Now you can retract your every promise Nothing left to keep you honest
3.
Avenues 06:03
Sun light and sun dark Hollow eyes and harrowing heart Try to start over all over for naught All our efforts And what you brought will follow me for every time I fail to forget So cold and so hot either way exactly what you're not Altered guise and guyline stretching ever so taut All our efforts wasted Perish the thought that fades away in time in the time you let your mind rot Great avenues await your name In your long game it's a long way Coming from high altitude In your long con till you're long gone Silhouetted sleek and stark at speed of great magnitude till you make your mark on great avenues Great avenues await your face In your long game played the wrong way Coming from high altitude In your long con till you hit concrete Silhouetted sleek and stark at speed of great magnitude till you make your mark on great avenues

Sepulchre 04:42
(narration from a speech by Pope Urban II, A.D. 1095)
5.
Cipher 06:10
I never understood the way you are raise your fist when you should raise the bar and when you find yourself neck deep in tar keep drilling I never understood the way you are I never understood the way you are I never understood the way you are Live for your self-interest cause nobody else can make you see the difference

Proteus 05:20
I'm awake I'm awake now I'm awake I'm awake now Through this great cumulus cloud Dissipate as we fall out Square one, square one, square one, square one (Sometimes it takes the thing it takes) Square one, square one, square one, square one (Sometimes the bottleneck must break) Square one, square one, square one, square one (Sometimes you must bypass the vein) Square one, square one, square one, square one (Sometimes you must sever the leg) Sometimes it takes the thing it takes sometimes the nuclear option Sometimes the bottleneck must break open to spill the solution Sometimes you must bypass the vein to get around the obstruction Sometimes you must sever the leg to save the rest of the system I'm awake I'm awake now I'm awake I'm awake now Silence ear-splittingly loud Let the sound drown your voice out Let the sound drown your voice out Sometimes it takes the thing it takes sometimes the nuclear option Sometimes the bottleneck must break open to spill the solution Sometimes you must bypass the vein to get around the obstruction Sometimes you must sever the leg to save the rest of the system

Zeta 07:41
What your function is, hard to say You arrive on the complex plane Washing out in striated gray But we can't balance out this way As we search for primes Factor down one more time Factor in one more mind Let Riemann remain unsolved Through brute force no course resolved Let Riemann go on unsolved We burn time, run blind, free fall Delta x approaches theta Sigma must converge to zeta Can we stop when the logic's gone and the statements can't pass review Where the critical line is drawn Can't accept what you cannot prove As we search for primes Factor down one more time Factor in one more mind Let Riemann remain unsolved Through brute force no course resolved Let Riemann go on unsolved We burn time, run blind, free fall Delta x approaches theta Sigma must converge to zeta

Inflexus 04:25
I never noticed the suicide explosive handlebar concealed in your grasp I never noticed until the moment you inhaled the breath that would be your last gasp I never noticed the ox entrails you strung and nailed across the corners of your wall The lazy way that they spun and swayed and spelled my name I never noticed that at all This is not a message to you No one gets a message through Stop Why? Kid, why can't I? I never noticed the thing I knew and understood and thought was good and I was wrong and now I know it, now I own it now I can relive each moment all year long But this is not a message to you No one gets a message through Stop Why? Kid, why can't I? Stop Go Why? I think you know. Stop Go Where? I think you know.

Make your sad escape take all this as yours take another shape freeze in phantom form Slide through the autumn Make your sad escape take all this as yours take another shape freeze in phantom form I trusted you with my lack of life with my open arms I accept your knife Skein and skin entangled all over this room Scared of life without you all over too soon Slide through the autumn Slide through the autumn Transparent it's apparent you're see-through Who are you? Call me collateral damage excess freight dead weight Make your sad escape take all this as yours take another shape freeze in phantom form I trusted you with my lack of life with my open arms I accept your knife Skein and skin entangled all over this room Scared of life without you all over too soon Make your sad escape take all this as yours take another shape freeze in phantom form

Rotating cast never stops never lasts Now please hold on for your life Rotating cast never slows for disaster only spins faster Ringmaster Standing in the center you can't enter this mind Divided by a fault line cinematic in scope A fraying rope to bind disparate parts together for a dwindling time Rotating cast face of future and past Watch and hold on for your life I'm the mishandled freight I arrive once it's too late and stand by for all time Standing in the center you can't enter this mind Divided by a fault line cinematic in scope A fraying rope to bind disparate parts together for a dwindling time One more One more infinite loop An infinite loop An infinite loop that wraps around you Standing in the center you can't enter this mind Divided by a fault line cinematic in scope A fraying rope to bind disparate parts together for a dwindling time So tired, so tired, so tired, so tired Rotating cast I'm so tired, so tired, so tired, so tired Rotating cast Never lasts Never lasts Never lasts Rotating cast
