Track Name: Submarine
There's nothing here with me, I'm simply forgotten.
I wonder if they wrote about me, when I was going under.
Trying so hard to stay afloat, will I find another?
Silence keeps me from my sleep and I am going under the dark.

I told them I'd find another way, the road I deserted.
I feel like, I'm in a submarine, I didn't find the surface.
Trying so hard to stay afloat, will I find another?
Silence keeps me from my sleep and I am going under

What if it is another dream? My own kind of illusion.
I can't get out, I can't get out!
What if it is another dream? My own kind of illusion.
I can't get out, no I can't get out!
Track Name: Voyager
It's been a while, since the last time he saw stars
Just a fluorescent light, that's lighting up this night.
A target never found, only one mistake,
now he's drifting endlessly, there is no escape today.

It is pulling him in right now, a sight to behold
He feels the gravity of it
All the planets he left behind, floating away
Just a blank display

Then one day, the signal suddenly
Came knocking on the door, of his disbelief
A target now aquired, forcing him that way
The stars reflect on his dark mind, there is an escape today.

It is pulling him in right now, a sight to behold
He feels the gravity of it
All the planets he left behind, floating away
Just a blank display
Track Name: 1233
They follow me, I collect
Their seducing voices, keep guiding into their traps
Filled up with hate, to the brim
This world has left me, I feel my reality growing dim

The way I'm corrupted, I'll return the favor
There's no reaching out, I'll teach him any sickening behaviour
This is not my fault, This wasn't my choice
They made me do it, I need to scream, disguise my mind with noise
Track Name: Fingerprint
Every smile erased from the face of mankind
It happens every day, for corruption is blind
Ink filling up gaps, bloodstains create the human
Maps tracing us everywhere, it's a burden that we must bear

Our collective stalked, defined by law and order
Archive of the DNA, kept prisoner till judgement day
Track Name: Critical Mass
A song comes raining down, when I tell the earth of my plans
to scrape away, to find a place

Caress those finite hours, the pressure is rising amongst
the closest of my surroundings

They'll scream, but not as loud, as the heat of my fires,
until time will put them out

Forever

I'll leave a trace, when I melt down today

Should we be here and complain?
When solemn and suddenly
The voices start boiling in me
And everything is blast away
As they just wait for me
They are killing me
Track Name: Paper Plane
What it feels like, to don't care,
A soul flying away with regret
Never believed I, would give damn
about my life

Now I feel like, I do care,
About the things that I never said
I'm drifing down,
I'm drifing down

It will drag me down, it will take me now
I am fold forever
Like a paper plane thrown out in the rain
I am lost forever

It will drag me down, it will take me now
I am fold forever
Like a paper plane thrown out in the rain
I am lost forever

Take my hand, you'll be in my care
Listen to my voice, my final closure
Just take my hand, soaring through the air
Let my close your eyes until its over
Let us face the time, and understand
Let me bear your face upon my shoulds
Forgive my insolence, we should never give in
Just face the light, and I'll be there,

Forever...
