Track Name: Another Life
Transposition into a new dimension
No one to trust, all alone to question
Where to paint my presence in vicinity
Contrasting scenery, clashing color schemes…

Will I fight, or swim against the tide of
Conformity overcoming me?
Or leave behind and betray my own identity?

CHORUS:
In another life, in another time
My mind’s displaced, I can’t abide by commonplace
I keep my faith alive, keep my head up high and
Never lose myself and never let myself die

Regression into a time unknown
Afraid to stand my ground alone
Disquieting not knowing where to turn

CHORUS:
In another life, in another time
My mind’s displaced, I can’t abide by commonplace
I keep my faith alive, keep my head up high and
Never lose myself and never let myself die
Track Name: Steadfast
Ready to take on whatever is to come to try to stop me
Nothing in this world can keep me down
Never putting down my guard to let them get the best of me
They will never let me hold my own

I will fight my way through every trial thrown in my direction
Nothing else can ever slow me down
Never putting down my guard to let them get the best of me
They will never let me hold my own

Chorus:
Hold my head above the current threatening to
Drown me and take my life as I know it from me
Set my sail over thrashing waters threatening to
Drown me and take my life and I know it away from me

Ready to take on whatever is to come to try to stop me
Nothing in this world can keep me down
Never putting down my guard to let them get the best of me
They will never let me hold my own


CHORUS
Track Name: Undying Dream
Torn between forsaking what I love, an ardor for what keeps my head above
What eats me alive every day, you say I need to come back down to Earth
It’s nothing to you, it’s something I breathe,
You’ve chosen to disbelieve one can gain by giving up everything
In the name of an undying dream.
You’ll find a way to take it…

Chorus:
I’ll wrap my arms around it
So close that I could grab it
You’ll never understand it
I’ll find a way to make it
Background vocal:
(I’ll dream forever ‘til I’m gone…
See me fail but never watch me fall…)

Torn between putting up the fight
Embarking down a vacant path with no end in sight
Not knowing the price I will pay
I’ll compromise my wealth, but not my worth
It’s nothing to you, it’s something I need,
No outcome is guaranteed
When giving up everything in the name of an undying dream
I’ll find a way to make it…

Repeat chorus 2x
Track Name: Collateral Destruction
Forever rest while we wonder and wait
For the answers we may never obtain
Forever hide from your selfish repercussions
Take parts of us we will never reclaim
Never be the same…

Chorus:
Watch over and guide those
Caught in the path of your destruction
Misfire of your weapons meant to take you under
Take us all.

Help no one and do no favors
Try to help us understand the reasons
We were better off without you
We will find a way to live without you.

Chorus:
Watch over and guide those
Caught in the path of your destruction
Misfire of your weapons meant to take you under take us all.
No second chance to find a way around your only option
Misfire of your weapons meant to take you under take us all.

Can’t bring myself to follow
I’ll brave a new tomorrow
Won’t resonate your fall but I’ll reflect a newfound hope.

Watch over and guide those
Caught in the path of your destruction
Misfire of your weapons meant to take you under take us all.
No second chance to find a way around your only option
Misfire of your weapons meant to take you under take us all.
Track Name: Insight Disguised
Misguided by empty insight disguised as your way of life
Artificial answers for the questions that keep you awake at night
Remedy confusion with a safety net,
a perception that leads you away from truth
Forsake the quest to find your wrong and right
And you'll have no idea who you are

Chorus:
Will you walk right through an open door?
Will you take a chance on what could be in store?
Your future lays before you now
No one else can write your story for you how you’d write your own

Deluded by vapid advice directed by simple minds
Artificial answers for the questions you’ve been asking all your life
Pave a path down a taken road, you will reach the end and find
A light that's shining bright for somebody else.
And you'll have nowhere to go from there.

Chorus
Track Name: Never Again
Fighting the sound, deafening accusations
Shutting them out
Seeking refuge, calamity abounds
Running around, escape the madness turning me upside down
Rid me of these demons, let them out…

Never again, be broken or corrupted
Not caving in, to fear or self-destruction
(2x)


Never again be corrupted, be victim of immolation
Resist and rise above my insecurity
(2x)


Where can I hide where they won’t find me and
Reach their hands inside,
Infiltrate the center of my mind?
Regaining my sight, resounding reason
With all of my might,
I will face the music and fight…

(Chorus)
