1. Is This the Way? (5:24)
It all starts with the best intentions
Does not always go as planned
To give the way that you know how
Clear signs of disappointment
fall short
You question your worth
Don't believe it was meant to be

Is this the way you see your fate?
Do you want to leave this place?
A change will come
when you least expect
Don't give in to your regret

Lost out with the best intentions
Try to accept this
No longer a course to travel on
With choices made promises broken
Shattered and broken
Hard to see the error in these ways

Is this the way you see your fate?
Do you want to leave this place?
A change will come
when you least expect
Don't give in to your regret

Confliction
With thoughts of indecision
Reason
Lost inside confusion
Solution
The way to freedom

Cause and effect: Been through it all
Cause and effect: the way it goes
Cause and effect: the choice is made

It won't end it all
2. Both Sides All Lies (4:00)
Set aside your view as you know it
Consider those who know longer have
These lives have value to give
For us to learn and empathise
We've got to keep hope alive

They lied, their lies
Both sides, all lies
They lied, their lies
Biased on both sides

Misinformation is the key to control
Utopia banished, none for all
Expressed views are not as they seem
Where are the facts/
Not on screen

Create victory, exploiting grief
All buried truths lie beneath
Thus shaping all points of view
Tailor made for me and you

They lied, their lies
Both sides, all lies
They lied, their lies
Biased on both sides
They lied, their lies
Both sides, all lies
They lied, their lies
Biased on both sides

Where is the truth?
Where is the truth?

Are we no further in our
stance to this?

Or are we satisfied living
in ignorant bliss?

Most people have selective memories
This is such a waste
We must dispel the illusion
To expose this human disgrace

They lied, their lies
Both sides
They lied, their lies
Biased on both sides
3. This Time Last Week (4:05)
Go back and just reflect
These are the days you hold on to

This road once walked upon
Was there now been and gone
Hard to believe
To the mind's eye
Something new in front of you
A moment so surreal
Living it through your eyes
Take in all there is to see
What was now
This time last week
This time last week

Memories painted on your mind
To be revisited in future times
Cease and absorb
Picture and breathe
Trying to savour the feeling
Sights and sounds
They remind you of times
This you cannot live through pages
You come back down
Reality hits

What was now, this time last week
This time last week
This time last week
This time last week

Take with you what you see
Capturing the thought
The essence of life

Surrounds
Flowing on by
Drifting with time
Seeking your relevance

Go back and just reflect
These are the days you hold on to
Hold on to
This time last week
This time last week
4. Spirits Alive (6:03)
Now you're leaving us
Now you're leaving us
As you sit beside them
Sharing a moment in time
Looking for consolation
Through these hurting eyes
That feels the pain
Hard to see them fade from life
Leaving us with only memories

It's not that time that I've
been waiting for
To see you become a shadow
As you go on and leave us all behind
We remain to keep your spirit alive

Inside they're facing this alone
You give strength!
Upon reflections of your
life before this
With connected eyes, we cry
These emotions lie
Acceptance of this now is
so hard to take

It's not the time that I've
been waiting for
To see you become a shadow
As you go on and leave us all behind
We remain to keep your spirit alive

Now that you are free
We keep the memories
Now that you are at peace
Within me I will always see
You were there to show me the way
Now I will walk this life alone

You will always be remembered
You will always be remembered
Within me
5. Hope (6:38)
This world as we know it, has been moulded. It is happening before our very eyes. Whether you choose to believe it or not, we the people are being manipulated for total control. This is real.

The strongest persuasive action for controlling the masses is fear. Fear is used as commodity. It is brought and sold. Manufactured and tailored to an audience through the use of propaganda and slur campaigns. Fear is a tool, a disease, an infection.

It is a cancer that attacks all logical thought infecting the very essence of our humanity. Creating an illusion of hopelessness, when there is always...

Hope! Hope!

Previous generations have faced the same malevolence. History has shown a repetition of constant error and fabrication. Are we going to turn a blind eye yet again? Or take a stand? Against ignorance and man made fear? It's purely an attempt to divide and conquer, making you accept the unthinkable. Altering logic and reason, allowing the untruths to be believed.

In the modern world terror has been manufactured. A fictitious threat is born spreading epidemically on a global scale. Convincing those to give up their civil rights. Blinded to the real knowledge that such an option is to be avoided.

Fear is everywhere. What has become of our society in which reside? We must make a change and show we don't fear our neighbours but accept them for who they are.

Hope! Hope!

Sadly today, equality has become a myth. We are not encouraged to speak our minds of let our voice be heard.

To succumb to this, is a corruption of our very existence. Awareness is the key in paving a better way out. With knowledge the realisation will elevate you to a new level of understanding our current fate.

Given all that you've heard and all the reasons for change brought forth, the time is now to wake up and speak up! Wake up!
6. Confusions Way (5:23)
Anxiety burns, burns you inside
Hot, feel connected to this world
I intensify
This is an age of mass illusion
Virtual shameless face
It intensifies
Speak now or forever hide your piece
Tell me, will it make a difference

Break the mould
Soul against the flow
No thoughts have I
to make sense of it all
Show me a sign of who I am to be
Go it alone
Go it alone

So much is going through the mind
It's you and your thoughts alone

Under watchful eyes
Fail to identify with others
Lost yourself in the midst of it all
It still intensifies

Break the mould
Soul against the flow
No thoughts have I
to make sense of it all
Show me a sign of who I am to be
Go it alone
Go it alone

Pushed back into the corner
What makes you who you are
Somewhere alone the line
You feel this change
With all those expectations
find your place
In this world
Your daily struggle
continues on

All alone the way
The fear is inside you
All alone the way
No one can solve it for you
All alone the way
Misunderstand life's view
You failed to see it all
You're just confused
Lost and afaid

Have I confused my way?
Have I confused my way?
Have I confused my way?
Have I confused my way?
7. The Internal Dialogue (6:13)
Unknowing who this person is
Could be me but I do now know?
Don't recognise myself
Don't recognise my own
reflection of me
This image portrayed before me
Is it just a fallacy?

What does the mirror see?
What am I supposed to be?
What lies inside?
Why do I need to hide?

In the ways of being
Where does one fit?
Where does one belong?
How do I know if I'm on
the right track?
This I need to know

There's not a soul to see
What am I supposed to be?
What lies inside?
Why do I need to hide?

Holding back takes its toll
Through all the years
what have I done?

Look back did I ever achieve
anything for anyone?
Blank stare in front of me
Broken vision, my life undone
Does it show what's truly inside
Can the truth lie in disguise?

With my head in my hands
My stomach tied in knots
This panic stirs my thoughts
Will the silence ever come?

So immersed in self-misery
In a world I have divised
Begin to understand
My thought's a will
to achieve
Allowing thought control
Don't see what's truly real
With many a distraction
Takes the mind off the mind
Off the mind

With my head in my hands
My stomach tied in knots
This panic stirs my thoughts

Will the silence ever come?
Tell me what I'm supposed to be?
Tell me what lies inside?
What does the mirror see?
Why do I need to fucking hide?

Just a panic in thought
Watch it all disappear
This anguish I once owned
Is not for me to adhere to
Peel away this self made crisis
Shedding the skin of doubt
Was in such a state
We must embrace who we are

I know who this person is
Recognise myself, my face
The voice now ceases to exist
I am free to be
8. Lessening Life (5:08)
Led to believe in a system that's
taken the wrong direction
One flawed formality
always follows another
The mind filled with corruption
through useless information
One wrong decision
always follow another
No preparation for what
life can deliver
Lost is the human value
in our modern day world

We fall apart at the seams
Is it all so meaningless?
Enduring a life of worthlessness
Missing the point and direction
Taking all you can
Giving in to the greed

So superficial, so conceited
You make your life so complicated
Prioritise the need
for the unnecessary
The time and energy spent on
something so easily forgotten
Nothing could be further
from the truth
Question of fulfillment
through materialistic means

We fall apart at the seams
Is it all so meaningless?
Enduring a life of worthlessness
Missing the point and direction
Taking all you can
Giving in to the greed

Have we become numb?
To know what's wrong
Fail to see we're undone
Fail to see we've undone

Have we become numb?
Have we become numb?
consuming weighing us down
Consuming weighing us down

Some youth are bored and jaded
with countless options
than ever before
In dire need of acceptance
Losing their lives through the screen
Creating a self identity crisis

True values fading away
True values wasting away

We fall apart at the seams
Is it all meaningless?
Enduring a life of worthlessness
Missing the point and direction
Taking all you can
