Track Name: Velocity
Into another day
Dull from consistency
I can see only one thing
I am losing velocity
The whole world's gone mad
My head sounds just like that

Like a tree left without its leaves
On another dirty city street
As the earth moves slowly
Under my feet
I am losing velocity

We've forgotten what we had to be
It was so important then
Now they're numb to you
And you to me
We found the flower
But cannot find the stem

The curve is too controlled
The water's getting colder
Where do we have to go
Must I patiently atrophy
As I watch you watching me
We are losing velocity

I don't care for your complacency
It all remains to be seen
I can't guarantee anything
But I do feel the mystery

And I know it was meant to be
But how do I know I'm still alive
Cause I'm losing velocity
If we stop moving
How do we survive
Track Name: Mercury
Mercury
I see visions of galaxies
Where you are
Is where I'll be someday

And you puzzle me
Am I made of you
Are you made of me
Cause I'm so confused
Mercury

How you gaze into me
With your vast display of constancy
You enchant me
Mercury

I have found
Something in your eyes
That you have found in mine
Mercury
We don't have time
Mercury

Everyone has their day
But I pray
Our worlds collide
And form strength tonight

Mercury
I see visions of galaxies
Where you are is where I'll be someday
Just another piece of history
From far away
Track Name: Story Of Us
Listen up
You don't want to hear this
Ignore me if you must
But I’m trying to tell you something about
The Story of Us

Another one born
Another one dies
What's the cost
Of one man's life

As our differences divide us
Must I listen here in silence
To what is becoming
What never was
It's the Story of Us

No one knows
Who started the war
No one knows
What we've been fighting for
Watch our history unravel
Thread by thread
Watch us all
Go down in the end
What will become of
What never was
It's the Story of Us

Six degrees is all it takes

Buildings and bridges
Connect all the dots
What's the cost
Of one man's life
Watch the mystery unravel
Thread by thread
Watch it all
Go down in the end
What will become of
What never was
It's the Story of Us

Water and power
Power and land
What's the cost
Of one man's life
I'll bury it inside my capsule
And open it in fifty years
Maybe then
There will be some answers there
As to what has become
What never was
The Story of Us

Six degrees is all it takes
Six degrees is all
Track Name: Strange
The sun has set
The ground is cold and wet
And I still haven't left
And time
She let us rest
For long enough
But we're growing up
Things are different
You used to listen

Isn't it strange
How can we go on like this
Flies in the dark
Looking for a spark
But something's gotta give
‘Cause if it won't change
How can we go on like this
How can I live

It's just a dream
It's just a silhouette
That hasn't happened yet
But the Earth is moving fast
And if I'm gone
Before the dawn
Take all that there was
And make it live

Isn't it strange
How can we go on like this
Flies in the dark
Looking for a spark
But something's gotta give
‘Cause if it won't change
How can we go on like this
How can I live

‘Cause it's just another moment
I could've played the game
I could've done without this
But I didn't
Why can't I acknowledge
The more things change
The more they stay the same

Isn't it strange
How can we go on like this
Flies in the dark
Looking for a spark
But something's gotta give
‘Cause if I won't change
How can it go on like this
How can I live
Track Name: Nexus
The outside opens
Behind the ground
I'm coming down
Through the nexus

And I see flurries
Of energy
And I see visions of Damascus
Of our last kiss
I'm coming down
Through the nexus

I thought I'd buried the hatchet
Between the moons of Aria
Then I became your reaction
To us
And I couldn't give it up

Let’s suppose you were
Just the answer for
What I was looking for
What I had lost before
What I've been searching for all this time

Just in case the world rejects us
I'm coming down
Through the nexus
Track Name: Sky Is Falling Down
Dark isolation binds us
We're all twisted up in clouds
Hellbound
The Sky is Falling Down

The beast inside of all of us
Is dying to get out
To stealthily kill
And live within the trust
That we give it

There's the beast inside of all of us
Let it be let out now
Let it roam free among us
The Sky is Falling Down

Can we stop
Just for a moment
Look at the ocean
Don't look up
The Sky is Falling Down

If we are blessed
To witness it again
For the betterment of man
All we can do is
Cherish the sound
The Sky is Falling Down
Track Name: Be What You Wanna Be
I've walked along the edge
I've seen my death
It came before my eyes
Blinded by the light
I realized
Too long I've been without
The feeling of alive
Lost inside the fog
I've been lost inside my mind
I forgot that I am free
I can be what I want to be

Live
Find the means
Be what you want to be
You can exist
Find your reality
Be what you wanna be

Dancing on the shards
I found pain
I found the feeling of awake
Isn't it serene
How we can behave
Our paisley brains
Numb inside the daze

Can't we be
Can't you be
Be what you want to be
You can live
Find your reality
Be what you wanna be

Powered by illusions all around
I have made the choice
To find my voice
And let it ring throughout the cave
And end this
Happiness in slavery
I won't go down that way

I will be
I can be
Be what I wanna be
I can exist
Within this reality
And be what I want to be
Track Name: Paradise
All that I wanted today was to be let out
And I'm so tired of these cages
I'd like to burn them all down

Why can't you separate your mind
Why can't you separate your mind
We could call this paradise
You can call it what you want

And I'm feeling all these pains
Inside my head
That I could do without
And they are messing up my guidance system
Blocking out the signal route

Why can't we separate our minds
Why can't we separate our minds
We could call this paradise
We can call it what we want
Paradise

It should be in
Then out
Not the other way around
I found god
It isn't what you thought it was
It's just as empty
As the cause

You can call it what you want
But if we separate our minds
Separate our minds
We could call this paradise
If we can separate our minds
Then we can separate these lines
Separate our minds
We could call this paradise
Track Name: Walk Away
Take your feet and walk away
You're no longer welcome
Some little voice inside of me
Said take your feet and walk away

Count to ten
Take it slow
It's as though
It's no one's fault at all
Don't turn around
If you do
There will be hell to pay
Just walk away

Walk away
How did I hurt you
Let me make it all ok
Before we part
And we believe
That this was all there was to say

Will you be guest
Make the change
It's as though
It's no one's fault at all
Put on your walking shoes
See you the next time
You pass through
The next time
I will have to ask you to
Walk away

And I never said
This would be easy
I can hardly stand
We just keep spinning around
Spinning around it

I wish you well
You can take your bow
I'll take what's left of me now
And walk away
Track Name: December
You are the one
Who must go on
Go and tell them
There could've been something better
I don't have the answer

Beyond the wind
There lies a star
It's waiting for a world to start
No one can remember
We may not see
December

Are we enough
To end the sun
Like my vision
Ending in our self-destruction
Shattering our selfish prison

What can we do
History has taken over
The same mistake
A million times
We're buried in the dark forever
We may not see
December

There's blood beside the river
There's murder in the minds of all of us
The sign has been delivered
There is no trust above
Only darkness in the things we love

What can we do
Now we have to start all over
The same mistake
A million times
And all the signs
Are moving so much closer
No one wants to live forever
We may not see
December
Track Name: Orchids
We're flowers
You and I
We share a light
I need you
We're Orchids

But I long to love you
Like flowers do
Just to feel your sweet perfume
I want you
We're Orchids

Will we never get to be
Will I ever get to be
Will I ever get to feel
You in me

The seeds lie unaltered
But on some planet
On some other moon
We bloom still
I love you
We're Orchids
Track Name: Great Wide Open
I often dream of the ocean
Misty with salty perfume
As I take to the sea
The night goes with me
By the light of a crystalline moon

Into the great wide open
All of the stars become Her
Into the great wide open
Space we go

Out here I seek understanding
Just a place for myself
In the whole
We have lost all control
A warm west wind blows
Let us go to explore the unknown

Into the great wide open
All of the stars become Her
Into the great wide open
Space we go

And I think I have found just the answer
But can you let it unfold
When you can't live up to
The highest plateau
You can come with me
We can go

Into the great wide open
All of the stars become us
Into the great wide open
Space we go

Into the great wide open
All of the stars become us
Into the great wide open
Space we go

Let's go
