1. Gates of Horn and Ivory (3:25)
Craving possession
Material obsession
You function solitarily
On lower brain transmission

You want it, you need it
You're never gonna get it
Cause really what you're chasing
Is a lie to begin with

Paralyze
Manufacture aspiration
Design the ideal outcome
Would you like to hear your story?

All this time you've played the part
A part that was chosen just for you
Bite down on the painless
Enter the gates of Horn and Ivory

With fire at my back
I will tame the waters
I will learn to swim
Fear is not my master

How do I Breathe?
You will choke
How do I walk?
You will fall
Instinct to the extinct
Paralysis by analysis

Trapped in delusions
Ghosts are out to haunt you
The world you've grown to love
Is slowly crumbling

You need it, you want it
You're never gonna get it
Cause really what you're after
Is a fictional desire

With fire at my back
I will tame the waters
I will learn to swim
Fear is not my master

Enter the gates of Horn and Ivory
2. My Witness, Your Victim (4:47)
Confess to your sins
Immorality's my witness
The search for redemption
A never-ending trial - your victim

The battlefield has transformed
Blades unto bullets
Killing is easy but Ruling is key
Strike millions of targets at once
Bullets unto light

The means for authority imposed upon mankind
False sense of security interacting as your guide
A woven fabrication as a radiant design
Enclosing all written access, there's no place left to hide

We bare ourselves
To the eye of the sun
Take all you need
In the name of

Killing is easy but ruling is key

Confess to your sins
Immorality's my witness
The search for redemption
A never-ending trial - your victim

A saint-like figure you demand
Take a look at your reflection
The world's not your own to command
Imperfection staring right back at you

Anytime
Anywhere
With five eyes watching
We bear witness
Anytime
Anywhere
With five ears listening
We will attend
The eye of providence

Thus, I present my final words
A moment is all I ask for
My greatest fear, eternally
Is that nothing will ever change

Confess to your sins
Immorality's my witness
The search for redemption
A never-ending trial - your victim
3. Danse Macabre (4:01)
Fools, out of desperation
Cursed to repeat this ancient hand
While all their friendly gestures
Are just a part of your grand plan

No cause for celebration
Your self-destruction lies ahead
Weakened, frigid from the terror
No absolution shall be fed

It's time to play with fire
Chase the visions from the past
And never stop till the very end

From the womb and through life
We're born and bred just to die
Can we redeem for our crimes?
Tangled and swollen in lies

OBEY!
You are a servant to my will
Part of the system
Swear your loyalty to me
Or pay the price

Please can you forgive me?

No, I won't let you disguise
All the schemes that you tried to untie
There's no way out now from the pit
You must realize

Please won't you release my soul?

From the womb and through life
We're born and bred just to die
Can we redeem for our crimes?
Tangled and swollen in lies

It's time to play with fire
Chase the visions from the past
And never stop till the very end

From the womb and through life
We're born and bred just to die
Can we redeem for our crimes?
Tangled and swollen in lies

From the womb and through life
We're born and bred just to die
Can we redeem for our crimes?
Tangled and swollen in lies
4. I Endeavor (4:08)
Describe the ability to feel...
A reality far from real.
Give me the meaning behind this touch.
Yield speech to the vibe that you clutch.

Grant me the truth I’ve longed for a lifetime
and liberate my soul from my now elapsed crime.

A tear to cause not liquid to draw from my eyes.
A hallow’s beginning to now sever my ties.
For a smile so warm I endeavor to retrace my heartbeat.
To grasp a cure for the disease condemning me to my defeat.

It burns, it penetrates my very flesh
To devour it whole... it reeks,
it torments my poisoned flesh.
To savour it all...

Feelings reviving.
There’s not denying.
Is this a blessing or a curse?

What is the remorse?
This sensation inside me.
Give me the meaning behind this curse.

A howling echo binding with magic.
An ever-recurring process in ceramic.
A tranquilizing scent densely growing to play its role.
To delicately disperse through every poorly patched hole.

It burns, it penetrates my very flesh
To devour it whole... it reeks,
it torments my poisoned flesh.
To savour it all...

Can you explain this?
Give me a reason.
Feelings reviving.
There’s no denying.
This is a blessing, not a curse.

Describe the ability to feel... a reality far from real.
Give me the meaning!
5. Faceless Messenger (5:00)
Truthful words are rarely beautiful.

Throw on a weak disguise.
Sugarcoat them with pride.
Facts remain the same.

And beautiful words are rarely truthful.

Tales of fiction lie on your tongue.
Let the sweet poison unravel.

Free to associate the bonds that we create.
With pretense at stake, exceed our limits.

You are the image.
We are the construct.
An edited society.

Hollow text inside your safety net.
Faceless redirected.
Eyes are the window to the soul
Where no one can hear me.

Isolated from within.
We fail to communicate.
Grasping to my social fence.
Is anyone out there?

The medium has become the messenger.
A distorted sense of knowledge.
Intercepted meanings with no trace.
Always moving towards a new direction.

Free to associate the bonds that we create.
With pretense at stake, exceed our limits.

Explore the new dimension
Inside this generation.

(Is anyone out there?)

Hollow text inside your safety net.
Faceless redirected.
Eyes are the window to the soul
Where no one can hear me.

Isolated from within.
We fail to communicate.
Grasping to my social fence.
Is anyone out there?
6. Perpetual Notion (4:34)
Give us your potions
To conceal the decay
A never ending tomorrow
And a forgotten today

An extended stay
In the arms of security
A fear of the unknown
And the slow death of longevity

You have yet to understand existence
Tell me what's so grand about infinity

When time is defied
(a product in the making)
All reason goes blind
(to sell to the weaker)
And if we deny
(victims of nature)
The meaning of life
(to extend the lie)
What will there be left
For us to preserve

Come drown in the fountain
Submit to the water's grasp
Sleepwalking through ages
No thought of collapse

Embers glow - hanging on
Slips smoke to the sky
An act of The Futile
To blink the mind's eye

You have yet to understand existence
Tell me what's so great about infinity

When time is defied
(a product in the making)
All reason goes blind
(to sell to the weaker)
And if we deny
(victims of nature)
The meaning of life
(to extend the lie)
What will there be left
For us to preserve
With no final words
To bring meaning to death

Will we ever accept the end?
7. A Necessary Evil (3:44)
Kneel!

All must concede to her will of everlasting greed.
Kneel before your queen.
Feel the wrath of her alliance.
Bow down.

Drain the lake.
You won’t believe your eyes.
Drain the lake.
It will reveal her lies.

At nerves end, you push with full force.
A blinded intellect will suffocate the tale built in your favor.

No restraints on your tongue.
Her beautiful face reflecting grotesque imagery.

Taking action.
Wars engaged.
We are fighting to rid all past tense.
Break the bond.
Unnecessary evil

An inviting facade on a shameful foundation.
She will pull you to your knees.
Bow down!

A gift and a curse.
The savior to the nemesis.
A necessary evil.
One thing we can’t deny.

No restraints on your tongue.
Her beautiful face reflecting grotesque imagery.

Taking action.
Wars engaged.
We are fighting to rid all past tense.
Break the bond.
Unnecessary evil.
8. Architects Hallucinate (4:30)
Starlight darkens the edge of the blade
Made to perforate your true immortal state
(or will this be another cheap victory)

Raise your shield, break your arms
Today, there’s no reason to fight
So go ahead, and heal your wounds
Under artificial night skies
(You forgot to listen to yourself)

Test the waters, you will see
-dive deep-
Black eyes paralyze
- no sight -
At the foot of the bed they lie in wait
-weak mind -
Architects hallucinate.

The last one standing will be mine
I’ll swallow every piece of time

Life can bring no guarantees
Built my trenches, am I guilt free?
To forsake my harmless state
Will be my guide
I must try to find a better way

Vision blurs, senses heighten
Drowning in the finer pleasures
Architects hallucinate
Stairways to the surface
(or will the guilt keep weighing you down)

Shadows rising tall to consume you
The monster you embraced
(The monster you embraced)
Is a structure you must precipitate

The last one standing will be mine
I’ll swallow every piece of time

Life can bring no guarantees
Built my trenches, am I guilt free?
To forsake my harmless state
Will bee my guide
I must try to find a better way
9. Disconnect Me (3:32)
You!
Pull me out and plug me in
Light the brain
Start me up
Automatic we're bound
We wind up like clocks

Assimilation of perfection
My flesh and bone exists no more
Viral program in me

Am I just your creation?
Terminate this operation
Taking back the chance to feel alive

Disconnect me from the dream
You infused with reality (release me)
Cut the cord that defines you

Memories are fading
My life's disintegrating

Initiate the procedure to transform my body
Into a greater form to serve your gain
Access the brain to eliminate
The source that constrains us to be humane

Am I just your creation?
Terminate this operation
Taking back the chance to feel alive

Disconnect me from the dream
You infused with reality (release me)
Cut the cord that defines you

Disconnect us from your dream
Bleeding out the circuitry
You've got to cut the cord
Cut the cord and wake up!

Memories are fading
My life's disintegrating
10. The Perfect Embodiment (5:13)
The mind cannot dominate
When all my logic is erased.
If you repeat the same mistakes.
The soul will never alleviate .

Running against time to make ends meet.
Arguments invalid.
It’s highly dysfunctional you see.
In full retrospect.

I won’t accept the incompetence.
Rotting in the weaker side of me.
For all my wounds to be healed,
I concede to the greater part of me.

The perfect embodiment,
My inner victim.
Let all the flaws regress,
With mind in balance.

As far as stories go we’re a wicked fairytale.
The bumps and twists too rough to settle for a lesser deal.
Threw the weight on granted terms to hide my worst downfall.
A lesson well earned, the unexpected outcome.

I won’t accept the incompetence.
Rotting in the weaker side of me.
For all my wounds to be healed,
I concede to the greater part of me.

True opposites collide.
In this fragment of an entity.
I am one, forever incomplete.
Imprisoned in my own defeat.

My reflection, mortal challenge sinks
In the depths of regret.
Failure to consent, no will to fight.
In full retrospect.

Running against time to make ends meet.
Arguments invalid.
It’s highly dysfunctional you see.
In full retrospect.
11. A Gentle Disease (3:45)
The gift of poison
I'm the right mistake
Cruel words can heal me
Touch - a gentle disease

Where skies are green
The grass burns red
Terminal youth outlives me
Sight - an abstract sense

I'm the worst theory
Your downfall, my majesty

In this restless syndrome
I'll drown the flavours
Such an innocent crime
Taste - my ascending demise

Step outside your comfort zone
Come to meet your best downfall
12. Follow the Crossed Line (4:11)
Would there be a sign to save me from my sins?
Can you find the will to fake a bitter grin?
Eyes wide shut and I’m sinking in too deep,
Cause I’m stigmatized by all the lesser human beings.

Empty shells rising.
No disgrace - no remorse.
Absently intruding into thought, into mind.

Faith is the fuel for your survival.

You are condemned to their mockery.
Giving purpose to the deceased.
Forgiveness I shall grant.
In your your defense you must repent.

Follow the crossed line.
Follow when all senses will transform to logic.
Mass consumption of the thirst for power.
This illusionary key’s my ticket.
To as simulated freedom.

A reflection greatly outlived.
Seek permission for desires within.
Blindly trailing towards the path prescribed.
Your free will equals misconception.

Bound in chains, never cease to deny.
Wicked presence alluringly divine.
Fall to make peace with your ill defeat.
Stand tall and claim for amnesty.

When all senses will transform to logic.
Mass consumption of the thirst for power.
This illusionary key’s my ticket.
To a simulated freedom.

In the name of the temple, you rise and fall,
Burn the savior to honor the scribes.
Silence! Mass has begun.
Originality shunned by religion.

Faith is the fuel for your survival.
13. As Above, So Below (7:57)
A breath — a moment couldn’t take it.
A smile — your face couldn’t fake it.
A dream — a vision couldn’t make it.
We are all particles of life.

Extend your hand to reach the obvious.
The image planted in your eyelids.
A second guess, a need to focus
To find the secret deep inside.

Our wheels forever stuck in motion.
Disoriented human notion
Won’t satisfy your own devotion
To all the particles of life

Identic figures are inverting.
The mind’s perspective is a strong point
Connecting purpose to the Yang and Ying.
Unlock the mysteries inside.

Clocks ticking, sounding harmony
From left to right in perfect union.
The rhythm softly manifesting
Inside all particles of life.

Is presence all that really matters?
Strongly posed — no face, no gender.
Basic human interaction
Revealing mysteries deprived.

You hit the floor, a wound will grow.
You tell a lie, the truth will show.
Deserving fate as cause unfolds
Within the particles of life.

She falls down, down, down.
Through the earth and out the other side
Among the bodies that walk
With heads downward to the sky.

Return to the earth,
Away from tangled nature.
Down down down again.
She searches through her mind for her garden.

Take the answer’s failure to describe
Simplified delusions.
Taste the yearning underneath her skin.
Liberation within.

As above, so below.

A proposal in reverse!
Consume the flesh of progress.
She contemplates surrender
At the bidding of the conclave.
She falls back into herself.
Down down down.

Take the answer’s failure to describe
Simplified delusions.
Taste the yearning underneath her skin.
Liberation within.

The words from all your stories bind me.
A selfless mirror used to blind me.
When no reaction can deny me
The secret deep within your mind.

Your very weakest bone I’ll follow
To fight the reason of the hollow.
Self-loathing creature of tomorrow
Inside the particles of life.

A breath — a moment couldn’t take it.
A smile — your face couldn’t fake it.
A dream — a vision couldn’t make it.

Clocks ticking, sounding harmony
From left to right in perfect union.
Identic figures are inverting.

Our wheels forever stuck in motion.
Disoriented human notion.

You hit the floor, a wound will grow.
You tell a lie, the truth will show.

As above, so below.
