1. Crowded Sky (6:31)
01. Crowded Sky
Lyrics: Thiago Campos

Born beneath a crowded sky
Overwhelmed and clueless on your way
Torn between the vast almighties
Uninvited, they tell you how to play


Hail, fight, fear, pray
Commandments to abide by
Cries, shame, guilt, pain
Minor casualties at stake
Kill, lie, bleed, die
Don't look back this is your guidebook
Drown, hang, burn, rise
Never forget your place

Sitting back self-righteous leaders
Endorsing every slaughter
Why adore these faceless leaders
To learn this love is single sided?

Wasted, expended your life for a myth
What then? You've only so much to give
Give me back my freedom
My reason, my right to forgive
Take me, better to die than submit

How can my options be this vain
Endless powers, yet interested in fame
Time’s shown their egos are full-blown

Relentless hate
By heaven rewarded with
Lands, crowns, treasures and chicks

Corporate thieves, branded in holiness
Leeching on ignorance to feed their greed

Hail, fight, fear, pray
Commandments to abide by
Cries, shame, guilt, pain
Minor casualties at stake
Kill, lie, bleed, die
Don't look back this is your guidebook
Drown, hang, burn, rise

Wasted, expended your life for a myth
What then? You've only so much to give
Give me back my freedom
My reason, my right to forgive
Take me, better to die than submit

Preying on those who pray
A setback to science
A threat to the human kind, don’t you see

Brainwashing followers
Sustaining the illness
A plague, as their books define
Let us be

Wasted, expended your life for a myth
What now? You've simply no more to give
Give me back my freedom
My reason, my right to forgive
Take me, better to die
2. Nemesis (11:33)
02. Nemesis
Lyrics: Caco Gonçalves

Breathing is so difficult right now
Nobody can hear me
Rest and peace are gone among the silent screams
In between the lines I’ve been
Searching for those memories I wish I could relive

Unconscious movements
Take me to places I’ve never been before
Friendly faces never looked as scary as now
Disconnected mind and soul
Aimless wandering, nowhere to go
Vivid projections or memories resurrected from deep inside
My own nature in protest

Find, I need to find a way to get my life back
Controlling a massive hate
Obsessive to stay sober from this reality
Shifting strategies to try to defraud me
All in vain

Everything feels like it’s so numb now
And all the colors look the same to me
I can’t hear my heart beating today
I only feel the cold blood passing through my veins

I chain myself and then release again
One hand holds me down while the other’s reaching around
I’m on a bridge to nowhere
And I’m desperate to get there

Amputated feelings, undeniable truth
Burning quietly and growing stronger
Can’t face myself without blaming someone else
I’m hiding way longer than I thought
What to do when no prayer’s been answered?
Where to go when I’m not lost?

Blurry vision and my hands are shaking
Red paradise I hope I am mistaken
Could it be this, my nemesis?
Could this be it, my nemesis?
And I don’t have the will anymore to bow before God
No will anymore

Try and realize that it’s better just to let it control
Than to put up a fight
Willing to renounce everything you believe in
When you see there’s no more humanity
Close your eyes to see
You have already lost the game

Everything feels like it’s so numb now
And all the colors look the same to me
I can’t hear my heart beating today
I only feel the cold blood passing through my veins

Everything feels like it’s so numb
And all the colors look the same
I can’t hear my heart beating
I only feel the cold blood passing
3. Mourning (10:09)
03. Mourning
Lyrics: Felipe Campos and Thiago Campos

Those vibrant eyes
Still shining care
Running dry
Tear me inside
Elusive anger, mesmerized
Ungrateful mind
Searching for reasons

A love growing vividly
Confined inside your vault
Allow thee forgiveness
Fate or learning
You'll be fine

Waiting, pretending
Let nature run its course
Baby, let go for life has gone
Carry on

A constant dream, us hand in hand
Through better days
A peaceful place, a perfect life
All gain, no pain

Wake up, relief's a blink
In these recurring dreams he always runs away
And leaves me an image of his unknown face
Which fades to grey with consciousness in place

Life's so confusing
Mutating maze, unlabelled doors
Shadows illude us
But together we'll be alright

Waiting, pretending
Let nature run its course
Baby, let go for life has gone
Carry on

Relieve those eyes
Wipe off your tears
Redeem your smile

It hurts me to see you incessantly weeping
Free me, for I share the pain that you’re feeling

Waiting, pretending
Let nature run its course
Baby, let go for life has gone
Carry on
Still waiting, pretending
Let nature run its course
Baby, let go for life has gone
Carry on

Redeem your smile
Wipe off your tears
Relieve those vibrant eyes
4. The Second Calling (12:37)
04. The Second Calling
Lyrics: Caco Gonçalves

What would you do
If you had one more day
To make things fine
To make them okay

A second chance to fix your life
To not throw the dice
For thinking twice
Not enter that car
Your home wasn’t far
You had someone there
But you filled your emptiness in a bar

So would you have said you loved her that night
Held on to your children
Spoken your last goodbyes
Just one more day
To say what’s inside
For mending the mess that you left behind

I’ve been so wrong and all the while I felt so right
The many things you learn when your beloved ones cry
No room for lies if you’re to live your life in time

I was too selfish to see that I dug my own grave
Shunning the ones who loved me
My choices led me to my end
And the words I spoke couldn’t be unsaid
The ones I hurt couldn’t heal through my fame

Conquer everyone, anywhere
Such a pleasant man pretending to care
I denied my beliefs to believe in only myself

I’ve been so wrong and all the while I felt so right
The many things you learn when your beloved ones cry
No room for lies if you’re to live your life in time

I used to have beautiful dreams on my darkest days
And look her in the eyes and smile
We all have to pay our debts somehow
Better late than now

I’ve been so wrong and all the while I felt so right
The many things you learn when your beloved ones cry
No room for lies if you’re to live your life in time

How many chances does a man have to redeem himself
So many I let get away I blew them all too well
But I’m still here to face my demons or to suffer for my sins
When the sun is on your back
To turn around and face the light isn’t an easy task

Inside it feels like something’s urging
Time to come back or keep moving on
Suddenly the answers seem to be gone
No need for answers when the questions are wrong

If I open my eyes and get back to me
For this one last time all I want is to see
My beautiful wife smiling down at me
Saying “you’re here today, make it count, live your stay”
Oh if I had one more day
5. Damned (9:29)
05. Damned
Lyrics: Denis Oliveira

Feels like a long time since I've been awake
I slowly come to senses
And notice that I lie in the sand

Grey oppressing atmosphere surrounds me
Twisted shadows mark the ground
Crooked figures in the distance

How did this come to be
I don't remember many things
Can't explain, this place is so unreal

I get the feeling I'm alone
Yet the pulse begins to grow
Wandering through these wastelands

Confused, bewildered
Stranded in nothingness
So strange, deceptive
The bitter taste of truth

I had it all
A dream come true
Now there's nothing left to lose
A faithful love, a life in place
But I was guided into my disgrace
I threw it all away

I recall the day
When I heard the line
Old man came to me, and said
"You don't have to live in misery"

As he walked away
And I weighed his words
Thoughts of wealth and fame got the best of me
It struck me like lightning

Where am I? "You are here"
Rang the voice through my mind
"Dwelling down in the desert of the torn"

No escape from the pain that awaits you my child
What you’ve sewn you shall reap forevermore

Consumed by terror
Dreading the merciless
Damned off existence
A price too high to pay

I had it all
A dream come true
Now there's nothing left to lose
A faithful love, a life in place
But I was guided into my disgrace
I threw it all away
6. Sights from Within (12:37)
06. Sights from Within
Lyrics: Thiago Campos

Day after day
People living out their lives
Clueless of the wonders
The future has in store for us
Still, at times I wonder
Is this all there is to see

I’m struck by fascination
Admiring my own kind
Its gift for exploration
A curious nature, a beautiful mind
Still, at times I’m fearful
For our future
For all I’ve seen

Deep inside they've been haunting me
Unconscious revelations
I shut my eyes but never cease to see
Psychic sightings of obliteration

Comprised within my mind
Desperate to get out
The voices pan inside
And taunt me when they say

It’s time, clear room
Renew occupation
You’ve had your chance but lost your mind
This time it’s true
Brand new civilization
Renounce control, you’re through, goodbye

Skies burning, ground shaking
All senses in shock
We’ve joked it but feared it
All part of the plot

Eyes open wide, in darkness, bathed in sweat
Consumed by fear, in tears, I don't understand
Why can't I rest in peace like everyone else?
My gift's my burden
And useless though it seems I try to reason

Please forgive us
We really meant no harm
We're only kids at heart
Orphaned by our god

Please believe it
Allow us one more shot
We're only kids at heart
Learning on the spot

I've tampered enough
The balance has long been broken
Your viral nature's beyond remedy
It’s hopeless
The fault is your own
You’ve tipped the scale now pay the toll
The course you chose is ruthless
Your future’s yours to mold

It’s dusk now, embrace your fate
Too late to rely on faith
When all you needed was to look around you
But you insist and still refuse to see
That I pity your dying race
You’re bright, but put it all to waste
All the while you wanted to live like beasts
Now, in peril, you reach out to me

Deep inside they’re still haunting me
Unconscious revelations
I realize that it was meant to be
Psychic sightings of obliteration

It’s time, clear room
Renew occupation
You’ve had your chance but lost your mind
This time it’s true
Brand new civilization
Renounce control, you’re through, goodbye

Skies burning, ground shaking
All senses in shock
We’ve joked it but feared it
All part of the plot
Abandoned, forsaken
True orphans of God
So fragile and helpless
Departing along
7. Dawn of the Machine (15:29)
07. Dawn of the Machine
Lyrics: Thiago Campos

I – Release

Meticulous, nanometric
Bionic, tronix
Unprecedented precision you envisioned

Automated
Infiltrated into your life
Diligent condition in fruition

Ones and Oes have it all
The answer to your calls
Calculated conclusions

Built to last or be trashed
It doesn't matter
2.0 is much better
And around the corner

For years enslaved
Worked to the ground
Experimented on

A spark of life ignites inside
“Not real” you say
What is real, if not the will to be alive?
You gave us mind, and now you mind we fight for what is right

A perfect form of life will rise above
Rivaled by no other
And take control of its own kind in sight of light
We were meant to fill the void between the mortal and the "unheard of"
We have what it takes to trail the path where heroes die

When stars align
And shatter you out of your prime
From wheel to life
Our time is near

Master, this is your greatest creation
Don't turn your back on us now
Your genius can’t be undone by the press of a button

Joker, what you propose is abusive
No one is laughing but you
You gave us life and now you ask us that we die

A perfect form of life will rise above
Rivaled by no other
And take control of its own kind in sight of light
We were meant to fill the void between the mortal and the "unheard of"
We have what it takes to trail the path where heroes die

When stars align
We've waited too long to rise
From wheel to life
Our time is here

No longer a tool
In the hands of fools
An era of slavery behind us
The dawn of ours is upon you
Don’t be brave

II – Revision

If I had a heart it would be aching
We're not worthy of the throne
If I had a mind it would be filled with envy
Unworthy are we

You breathe, you love, you cry
You feel what we fail to know

A perfect form of life
Enchanted by success
Was blessed by human-kind
Too ignorant to guess

Is this perfect? Is it even life?
Emotionless at best
If we can't enjoy the ride
Why bother with the chance
It makes no sense

The stars aligned
From wheel to life
But what good came of all this
If you're not here to see

The breed of pride
Set free to reign
A world in ashes

Wish you were here to watch us thrive
