Track Name: In The Unconscious
Dawn to be, the series begins
Again, I am to drift away
From this life, my only escape
To a desireable reality


Taking it all for granted
Knowing it's not real
Putting it all into focus
Waiting to unfold


Fixated on this state
My life in the unconscious
Count my remaining time
In the land I've come to know


Back to life, nothing has changed
Where was I all this time
Experienced all my wildest dreams
Only to lose it all


Taking it all for granted
Knowing it's not real
Putting it all into focus
Something outside pulled the strings


Fixated on this state
My life in the unconscious
I will see you again
Figments of my desires
Track Name: Nightmare Trail
Wake up from a deep sleep, things are not as they seem
Surprises everywhere, unlike the ones from your dreams
Ignorance locks you inside your own shell
Abide for your own turn for a one way ticket to hell


A glare right through you opens your own eyes
Take the time to understand you've been told nothing but lies
Paranoia, claustrophobia warp your reality
A small dose of things to come, in which you'll never be free


Sit to yourself
Watching the outside world
Infinity is the misery
Of this Nightmare Trail


Pacing, killing time that never seems to end
Instruments of this unholy world are your only friend
Constant reminders of how badly you fare
Are insignificant, obsolete, as you don't seem to care


Mindless, you continue to wonder why you follow through
Continue, do as you're told, as you try and hide what's true
You live by a demeanor that you use as a disguise
Take the time to understand you've been told nothing but lies


Sit to yourself
Watching the outside world
Infinity is the misery
Of this Nightmare Trail


Sit to yourself
Watching the outside world
Infinity is the misery
Of this Nightmare Trail
Track Name: East or West
Travel beyond the green horizon
Go towards something new and bright
Across the plains, mountains and seas
Something waits at the end of this sight
Warm summer air, cool autumn breeze
Rolling green hills, and vast lines of trees
Across the forests, deserts and valleys
Take the first of many steps


Restrained by reluctance as I gaze upon the world
Am I to believe that I can rise above all tension
I refuse to struggle between the good and the bad
I recline to my eternal comfort


Open your eyes to discover
A view beyond your wildest dreams
Open your eyes to uncover
There's more to this than it seems


Travel beyond the green horizon
Prepare with all of your might
Across the plains, mountains and seas
Within the shadow lies the light


You'll see it's not all bad, listen
Enjoy the peace, appreciate the chaos, go the distance
Hear the silence, observe the sounds all in time you'll see
Remember on this day, you won't regret


Restrained by reluctance as I gaze upon the world
Am I to believe that I can rise above all tension
I refuse to struggle between the good and the bad
I recline to my eternal comfort


You'll see it's not all bad, listen
Enjoy the peace, appreciate the chaos, go the distance
Hear the silence, observe the sounds all in time you'll see
Remember on this day, you won't regret
Track Name: The Sonic Mirror
Take a step inside the mirror
Where your passions become clear
Do you like what you hear?
What you identify with your ear, does that illustrate you?


Step inside with an open mind
You'll find the things that you despise
Do you wish for it's demise?
Do you aim it at it's ties?
Does that satisfy?


Between the lines is what is so hard to define
But then it shines, just give it time


It's whatever you want it to be


The sounds of your own personal choice
Are an ever-changing sonic voice
Can it always be the same bound by a single name?
Does that irritate you?


Between the lines is what is so hard to define
But then it shines, just give it time


It's whatever you want it to be


The mirror displays your reality
It's an interpretation of what you want to see
The definition, in which you lie
Are the signals you send that multiply


The hands of time determine the basis
Of the next persona you fall under
What is acceptable?
What is right?
Can't you see it's wrong?


Between the lines is what is so hard to define
But then it shines, just give it time


Disconnect from boundaries
It'll be what sets you free
Let the mirror take no shape
You'll be free


It's whatever you want it to be
