1. Citizen (4:24)
[Intro]
Save us

[Verse 1]
If you thought you knew it all
Don’t shift your view, you might slip and fall
A long way down and down this rabbit hole
If the tunnel runs any deeper
You might come out the other side of the world
Maybe upside down you’ll be able see this isn’t what it seems
We are far from free

[Chorus]
We’re caught in the undertow
Deeper and deeper into the unknown
We’re caught in the undertow
Follow the leader down with the undertow

[Verse 2]
Action floats in limbo like driftwood in the sea
Under CCTV, so dig down deep
The more you uncover, the more you disbelieve
The more you will discover
We are far from free

Heroes exposing corruption in who we obey
Blow the whistle from a burning stake
The whistle blows from a burning stake
Corruption won’t keep revolution at bay

[Chorus]
We’re caught in the undertow
Deeper and deeper into the unknown
We’re caught in the undertow
Follow the leader down with the undertow

Spied on, lifelong, collection 24/7
Archives of all we’ve done
Satellites track our lives beyond the skies
Not even your mind can hide from big brother’s eyes

It’s time to take back our home
Thank you Mr. Snow
2. Colourwave (3:41)
I am what I create

Lashed by tongues of electric fire
Shimmering rivers crystalline
Run though frozen glimpses in time
And I just can't ignore this sight
Pouring down on me relentlessly
I just can't ignore this feeling
Deafened by rolling waves of realisation
Frozen, mesmerised in the rain

[Chorus]
In my darkest days
I only saw the shades of grey
In a world that drips in colour

Droplets of life form in freefall in convalescenece
They hammer into the soil
Carving new streams of essence, through turmoil

I am just as fluid, as immortal and lucid
As the Earth that morphs, in the violence of a thunderstorm

My life is what I make of my trials and mistakes
My life is what I make, I am what I create

I am what I create
I am what I create
I am what I create

[Chorus]
In my darkest days
I only saw the shades of grey
In a world that drips in colour
3. Savage (4:39)
Rise up

Rise up
Break free as one
See through the eyes of the sun

Witness the bitter end of all
We peeled our stares from the mysteries of the universe
And drew them down onto each other
A waterfall of knowledge cascaded into bullets for our brothers
Led to our deaths by providence
When we were born to discover

We were born to discover
Humankind, seek the sky
That we were born to discover

Wash away utopia with the tears of the undead
Slipping, sliding, fighting our way down the steepest descent
We'll meet our fate
Spellbound primates bathed in red
Witness the bitter end

Told to be a delusion
We cast and sealed our seeds of evolution
Wisdom age old, dormant inside all
Until it's time to break the mold

Break free as one
See through the eyes of the sun

Break free as one
See through the eyes of the sun

Look down at our earth
Through the eyes of the sun

Humankind's lines don't divide
Through the eyes of the sun

Rise up
Break free as one
4. Solar (3:16)
In an age where stars only draw us in
Gaze is swept from our mother who birthed us here
She's stormy, doubted and over-relied on
Take a good long look at that horizon

We bleed it dry
We multiply
And soon we'll say it's time to fly
So scorch the host

Silenced by the solar wind
Forests evergreen wither to sand
There's still shade in this wasteland
Shadows of towering glass span
As far as you can set your sights on
Take a good long look at that horizon

We bleed it dry
We multiply
And soon we'll say it's time to fly
So scorch the host

She's stormy, doubted and over-relied on
She's stormy, doubted and over-relied on
She's stormy, doubted and over-relied on
Take a good long look at that horizon

Open your eyes
Two worlds collide
Open your eyes

We bleed it dry
We multiply
And soon we'll say it's time to fly
So scorch the host

Watch it die
5. Heartmachine (4:04)
I'm breathing just to pass the time
I forgot to eat tonight
Just running down the clock today
With hope the ache will go away

Body starts to shake
Head begins to spin
Leaves me in its wake
I'm paralysed with pain

We suffer in our heartmachine
Unstable
Feeling everything
Pins and needles stitching up my skin
We suffer

Hope is strange, sometimes it leads you on
There's no exception when you're halfway gone
The second chance flash of light that brought me to my knees
A burning vision etched in memories

Body starts to shake
Head begins to spin
Leaves me in its wake
I'm paralysed with pain

We suffer in our heartmachine
Unstable
Feeling everything
Pins and needles stitching up my skin
We suffer
Trapped in a heartmachine

Time heals the wounds, it builds up strength inside
Fixing the truth is nothing left to hide

Suffering, unstable
Pins and needles
We suffer, trapped in our heartmachine
6. Intuition (3:51)
Why
Do we subscribe
To a universal thread
That weaves the fabric of our lives
Ask why
Without batting an eye
We're so accepting
Question everything
Question everything you know

Fracture of doubt
Crack to a chasm in an instant
Swallowing whole
The broken bones of our broken home
Into an ocean of disorder
But my view through the water's crystal clear
And I've got something that you need to hear

We don't know who we are
We wander never knowing
Feudal stone walls stop these oceans overflowing

Virtuosos wrote your thoughts in a symphony
Paradigms, transcribed
Under the supervision of conductors
To our dissonant chorus
We orchestrate their composition
They call it order

We don't know who we are
We reap what we are sewing
Fabric of our lives catches our eyes we abide unknowing

Wander
Question
Find your obsession
Knowledge
Beckons
Find your obsession

We don't know who we are
We wander never knowing
We don't know who we are
Or why we are following
This script of reality
Where we become the casualty
Conditioned in
An intellectual prison
Fuck this system

Follow your intuition

Wander
Question
Find your obsession
Knowledge
Beckons
Find your obsession
[x2]

Question everything you know
7. Zero-One (3:57)
Comatose in the arms of Morpheus
Drifting away to a place
Where there's more than this

Blindfolded visionary, eyes lost in the black and bleak
Chasing footsteps in the dark, lost for where they'll lead
Idols and stars shower light on the sublime
Blinding your mind's eye
Bright as your dreams shine

Blinding your mind's eye

Reclaim your life

Reclaim your life
From the iron grip of social design

Reclaim your life
Your cycle around the sun is eclipsing

Like most of us I was misled into a swarm of noise and distortion
Eroding my deepest thoughts before my inner voice had spoken
To remind me I'm gifted with the power to dream
To see what has never been seen
But I handed it over, consumed by culture
Cloaking the eyes of the visionary

Comatose in the arms of Morpheus
Drifting away to a place
Where there's more than this
Hypnosis
8. Fade (3:58)
When nothing could be done
To salvage what was lost
The chosen one
A victim of passion
He feels the hate rise up
A war that can't be won
The mourning son
Survives through disaster
The soul that suffered

All that's left behind
Is a memory that fades
Like a rope around your neck
Binds you to a resting place
And the price that I have paid
When I watched you pass away
Is the everlasting pain
And a memory that fades away

When all he had was gone
A place we once belonged
The chosen one finds an existence
Second coming life
Daylight pushes on
The mourning son
No longer a victim

All that's left behind
Is a memory that fades
Like a rope around your neck
Binds you to a resting place
And the price that I have paid
When I watched you pass away
Is the everlasting pain
And a memory that fades away

The soul that suffered sleeps tonight
In the ashes of his demons
Demons
Daylight holds no salvation
From this labyrinth of desolation
The fiery hells in his mind
Will burn to the ground in time

All that's left behind
Is a memory that fades
Like a rope around your neck
Binds you to a resting place
And the price that I have paid
When I watched you pass away
Is the everlasting pain
And a memory that fades away
9. Render (3:56)
Pilot of the biomachine
Manning the controls of a babbling monkey
The circuits behind the interface can't be seen
So the truth is up to me
Is this life but a dream

Is reality
All my senses perceive?...

It tears me apart from the inside
The story we've accepted with malleable minds
Dogmatic perceptions designed
In egotistical pride have led us blind

Short of sight
Wondering why our lives feel like they're lacking meaning
We have stopped believing
This is just a ride
This is just a ride

Is reality
All my senses perceive?
Is what I touch and I see
All that lies in front of me?

We wonder why our lives feel like they're lacking meaning
We've stopped believing
This is just a ride

This is just a ride...
10. Veridian (3:25)
He saw the life slip from her emerald eyes
Confusion, illusion had soaked up her mind
She clutched his hand, whispered her soul
"I never wanted to grow so old
Life's agony, turn off the machine
Let me leave this world with dignity"
Just let me leave this world

Bed of nails under the guillotine
Wake me up when my heart stops beating
When my heart stops beating

Wipe those tears of grief away, young man
Let me leave this world
Let me leave this world in peace
Turn off the machine, turn off the machine
Let me leave this world in peace

Raise me from this bed of nails
And let the angels carry me away
Carry me
Carry me away

Bed of nails under the guillotine
Wake me up when my heart stops beating
When my heart stops beating

Let me leave this world
11. Paragon (4:23)
The last of our martyrs seeks no adoration
From his castle in the air of eternal vibration
We won't lose sight of the lasting words he wrote
We won't lose sight of what matters most

A shining beacon of wisdom
Armed to the teeth
Fearless conviction
Now that he's gone we're going to miss him

Immortalized between the lines
Conceived by a human heart inside

He once said to us, my friend hope is a prison
But the hope his chords sung only spread love
In a hollow crowned kingdom

There are no fighters left here anymore
See you on the other side
Of that open door

We won't lose sight
We won't lose sight
Of the lasting words he wrote
We won't lose sight of what matters most
