Waiting for a savior Hiding from the falling bombs Hoping for salvation Aching from the loss of hope A home that's left in ruins A city filled with bodies Why do I have to endure This torturous existence Turn what's remained to a peaceful new place And find a new reason to dream and to start over Toxic gasses surround the atmosphere Lethal explosions spread eternal fear Terror breeds more hatred Hatred fills the victim's souls Ending what they've started This is the answer to it all Turn what's remained to a peaceful new place And find a new reason to dream and to start over Turn what's remained to a peaceful new place Rebuild from the ashes all the hope that was lost Turn what's remained to a peaceful new place And find a new reason to dream and to start life again

Resurgence 06:42
Climb this huge mountain ahead The hardships I will face again I'll give it my all till the end Persistence is now my best friend Feels like going through hell Even if I fail I will leave behind a trail And repeat again The process And if I fall again I'll rise up and find my inner strength I know I'll find a way Until I see a brighter day Break out of this rigid shell My fate I cannot foretell But I know with certainty Trying hard will get me there I will be victorious/ triumphant Even if I fail I will leave behind a trail And repeat again The process And if I fall again I'll rise up and find my inner strength I know I'll find a way Until I see a brighter day

Generation Z 05:05
There were times when the people disapproved of the system They would stand up and try to resist being used by elite men Nowadays when they're made to comply against their own will They will cry and whine 'I'm oppressed, don't you care about how I feel' Special snowflake syndrome is what has become of the new generation Love it or hate it, if you wanna change it now go back and take it, time to create now the liberation haven Wanna move on now, instead of complaining do something about it time to become one with things that really matter Love it or hate it, if you wanna change it go back and reclaim it time to create now the liberation haven Sense of entitlement fills the hearts of new blood When mere words offend them you know it's fucked How about embracing things that don't defy logic And not emotionally react to every topic Advance or stay a wimp Love it or hate it, if you wanna change it now go back and take it, time to create now the liberation haven Wanna move on now, instead of complaining do something about it time to become one with things that really matter Love it or hate it, if you wanna change it go back and reclaim it time to create now the liberation haven

Illusory 04:55
Faith that blinds all masses of followers The cycle repeats over and over Halts and delays progress of mankind Time to expand, our destiny ensures that we'll complete our Vision that all false gods will cease to exist Reveal now how we were brought to life Merged with nations it rules with corruption Choose carefully what you will follow Abandon all of these untrue foolish declarations The demagogues will fall as we conceive our purpose and achieve our Vision that all false gods will cease to exist Reveal now how we were brought to life Envision that all false gods will cease to exist And make it our mission to understand the truth Envision that all false gods will cease to exist Reveal now how we were brought to life Envision that all false gods will cease to exist And make it our mission to understand the truth

The Path 06:44
Revelation of desperation flowing through my head Aberration of emotions so overwhelming that they hurt An equation that is always, always meant to fail I must break free find the essence that will spark my inner flame Find the Path crush every sense of fear Fly me there, don't leave me here What's the reason of a mind that fails to see what's real How could you just keep ignoring what you felt was true Trying to fool your own self that this is what you wanna do Undermined all the abilities you had possessed Change your target and move forward or fail and have yourself to blame Find the Path crush every sense of fear Fly me there, don't leave me here What's the reason of a mind that fails to see what's real Is this what is meant to be The resolution of a choice That barely grasps the idea of reality To point out what is meant to be So that is that and now it's time to embrace The guidance from within That directs me to the one thing That gives rejoice Find the Path crush every sense of fear Take me far away from here The day has come to finally see what's dark and what is real

Terra 06:30
A endless wasteland of foreign defilement Is what this world will become after centuries of destruction A desolate asteroid that's just wandering into space Strange and unfamiliar ways that oppose our nature What do we expect of our race and keep on polluting the atmosphere Evolved through the centuries only to die by our own hand and greed But the earth will gradually find the road to final redemption As we dissappear from this world We give time for new life to grow The earth adapts to every single change Even if we destroy our own race One breath before death spreads to sky, soil and ocean When we take away from ourselves the ability to advance through the ages Gone are days we roam this planet as the leaders As the very last one of us decomposes forever Change or face the consequences Quell what binds you to extinction Change or face the consequences Quell what binds you to mass extinction As we dissappear from this world We give time for new life to grow The earth adapts to every single change Even if we destroy our own race While we drift away Earth will find a way While we drift away Earth will find a way

Treacherous 04:57
Love dead all that remains are vacant thoughts You leave a mark on my heart and then you're gone We were so close it seemed too good to be true Turns out my doubts were right as you turned to smoke Merciless, relentless creature feast on pain and the loss I will not give in, run, hide in your disguise Pretend you care to take from me all that I have Repent, your actions won't affect me anymore Merciless, relentless creature feast on pain and the loss I will not give in, run, hide in your disguise Drain its soul, core and existence Merciless, relentless creature feast on pain and the loss I will not give in, run, hide in your disguise You have ceased to exist in my thoughts and my mind

Departure 05:18
Years go by so fast that it feels like it was yesterday that you were brought into this world but here we are now I am fading 'till I'll Leave this world but live within you Please understand these things for me Keep building what we started And be the pillar of our family And be true to yourself I know it's hard to take in my departure But please try to stand strong Be there for your children As I were there for you even if I Leave this world but live within you Please understand these things for me Keep building what we started And be the pillar of our family And be true to yourself Hold on to the memories Cherish every moment that you've spent with me Don't grieve forever my loss Carry on our legacy And when I pass on you will take my place I know it's hard but I believe in you my son Leave this world but live within you Please understand these things for me Keep building what we started And be the pillar of our family And be true to yourself
