Track Name: Prelude
Prelude

It can happen to everyone, maybe you or me and us
It really is an unexpected feeling that you can’t trust
You begin to feel worried, alone and attracted to the ground
Hoping that if you pass out you will be found

Sallow stained skin
Yellow is my sin
Paranoia in my entire body
Oedema makes my fingers chubby

Some jelly-like swellings between my mucus and my skin
An increasing inflammation of my eyelid
Now it’s time for the decadence to begin
It’s already happened, I’m kind of invalid

Now I feel my turn has come, my head is lashed
Track Name: Losing Control
Losing control

What have I done?
It fossilized my brain.
Where should I go? Cause I am lost
What should I do other than crawl in the dust?
Dropsy of my cellular tissue, spongy and far became my issue
I’m losing control worse than if I were stoned
My eyes can see a hole that I will fill up on my own.


I’m losing control
Beginning to fall apart
Now I see the hole
It stands beside me
Just behind these walls
Losing control
Beginning to fall apart
Now I feel the sickness
I’m overwhelmed by something inside

In a box
Under watchful eyes
I think a lot
And I wonder why

Something tries to take over me
A voice inside is beginning to groan


Stay away from me
Stay away from myself
Stay away from me
Stay away from myself

Try to resist
No I cannot resist any longer
Try to subsist
I can try to subsist longer
While I…
Track Name: Something possesses me
Something possesses me

Something is in my mind
Something that is not mine
Something makes me blind
Something I can’t define
Something that’s hard to tell
Something I cannot spell
Help me and
Read, read in me
Don’t be afraid to try
Sleep, sleep with me
Don’t be afraid to fly
Talk, talk to me
Don’t be afraid to cry
Stay, stay with me
Don’t be afraid to be happy
Track Name: The Link
Interlude (The Link)

Now I have this new friend
He looks just like me, ten minutes ago.
Where am I? Who is he?
Where am I? And who is he?

It’s as if we’ve died together
Alone, together,
It’s hard to explain…together
Alone, together…

On his ship he swears he’ll bring me back
Then we will live together as one just as before
But I feel a change is coming
I really want more
Something is still missing
I cannot solve the puzzle yet because there is a missing piece in the puzzle of my life

It’s as if we’ve died together
Alone, together,
It’s hard to explain…together
Alone, together…
Track Name: Both of me
Inbë I - Both of me

I reach the sky, too many angels
Walk on earth, too many people
I come down in hell, quiet and warm, well
This place is perfect
This place is perfect

For you and I
Jumping on burnings rocks (surrounded by flaming lakes)
But there’s a gap between us
And I don’t need fake friends
Fake smiles, fake happiness
Or some fleeting joy
That I now have with you

Sometimes I sit, staring into the void
Just let me drown, instead of taking me back to the shore
Running out of time, weak as a broken violin string
I’m a red curtain and I will remain closed

A friend’s story that seems frozen
Silence is what we had before
True words unspoken
Heard miles away from the shore

I used to walk round and round
Before you showed the way out, the underground
Security, for you and me
Life will never be what I’d expected it to be
But don’t worry, I’ll miss your cruelty
I will suffer from your distant eyes

I finally found out, that you are not the one
I was aboard the wrong boat
I should have searched from coast to coast
I wasted my time counting your black waves
A life-vest made out of stones
What a fish I used to be, alone with myself
Track Name: The drowning crank
Inbë II - The drowning crank

Becoming invisible, you begin to see me disappear
And under the waves I saw you smile
Too bad for you but I’ve got no fears
In the worst case I will die

I finally found out, that you are not the one
I was aboard the wrong boat
I should have searched from coast to coast
But I wasted my time

You can laugh at me my pretty twin
But you are not yet the winner
You’re in deep shit, my dear brother
Cause you forgot that I know how to swim

After days of floating in my sickness,
No wonder I turned into the one my body now owns
The terrific flood was finally drained from my head
Then I lived a peaceful moment, realizing I wasn’t dead

Erasing myself as I draw my past
To try to better understand what I really am at last
Deleting memories of my previous being
To make sure nobody will ever see this awful drawing

Angels lured me to decay and thought I was blind, but
Evil was the choice of my mind
Humans for their part
Into hypocrites have grown
And I know in my heart
That I should now go on my own

So I was wrong all along because the earth is not that bad
We just need to enjoy the present moment, those we will have and have had…
Track Name: It Means
It means

I don’t care, doesn’t mean that I don’t understand and
I’m not fair, doesn’t mean that I cannot give you my hand
You feel bad, doesn’t mean that you should feel ashamed
You scream hard, doesn’t mean that they will do the same
He seems lucky, doesn’t mean that he really had a chance, and if
She seems worried, that doesn’t mean than she couldn’t get into the dance, or jump over the fence

It means everybody is so different, so why try to give just one answer
It means even if we’re all humans there’s a lot of ways and doubt
It means psychologists and doctors lose their time trying to go further
It means it’s up to everyone to find his own way out

We’ve been here for millenniums, that doesn’t mean that we know how to live, if
We shed tears because of what they’ve done, doesn’t mean we will not have love to give
You are very kind to me, doesn’t mean that’s the way I should be
Your mind seems really empty but it doesn’t mean you’ve got room for a part of me
They are in their shells, doesn’t mean they can’t invite someone in
They read more than they spell, doesn’t mean they mean to mean what it means

It means everybody is so different, so why try to give just one answer
It means even if we’re all humans there’s a lot of ways and doubt
It means psychologists and doctors lose their time trying to go further
It means it’s up to everyone to find his own way out

And will life ever be what I was expecting? Yes, cause at least I’m creating it…
Track Name: AügmenT
AügmenT

Shy and tiny, I’m not alone
Locked twice inside, keeping your fears
Am I again in a dream?
Or will my act now have an impact?
Now I see
We’re all back in the game
Here we are
We’ve both come back
Now I see
We’ve both come back
We’re all back in the game
Now I see

What to do? Should I give him pain?
What to do? Should I make him suffer?
What to do? Should I be insane?
What to do? Refuse his bait
What to do? Maybe unleash the hate?
What to do? Maybe just complain?
What to do? I think I will give him pain
What to do? Unscrew his brain

I woke up, am I wet for real?
Tired, cold and three days without a meal
Watching around to find my way back
I see myself on the ground, bruised but intact

Am I again in a dream?
Or will my act now have an impact?
He stands up to regain my esteem
And tries to convince me by pounding me with facts

You’ve got it all wrong pal
’Cause you don’t have power
But now I realize I’m wrong


With that stupid solution
To make him disappear

Violence is probably a pleasant way of doing it
But I’ve got to purge my frustrations
Because he owns this part of me
Without this evil side, my mind will be released of the plague

You take precautions building a relationship
With someone you see as a friend
In the final concoction you put in
Some trust, connections, and a magical collusion.
Then you need respect, and that’s what create sensations

I don’t have it now, can’t possess it
I don’t have it now, can’t possess it

Now I know
What to do: Release the anger
What to do: Tame the viper
What to do: Learn to overcome the wall
What to do: Just be yourself, stand tall!!
Just be yourself, at all!

Never take anything for granted
Being betrayed once is the same
as always having been cheated
Never take anything for granted
and always go further and further
rather than being constantly brought back to the beginning

What to do?
You and I know it!
Track Name: Face Reality
Face reality

Face reality everyday again
Being conscious makes it seem harder
But if you’re able to tame the system and then,
Take the good parts of it, a change will probably occur
And stay forever

There were sharks in the sea
They were against my true beliefs
No one ever understands me
Now I must see clear
And get this problem to disappear

Reality’s nothing more than what you see
And what you feel can’t be a conspiracy
My mind must be fed but I’m not going to pray
And I hope my problems will just fade away

Face reality everyday again
Being conscious makes it seem harder
But if you’re able to tame the system and then,
Take the good parts of it, a change will probably occur
And stay forever

But there are some rules in life
I’m the one who tries to keep


Equilibrium and good vibes
A little bit of respect, that’s the highway to happiness

You are gone and here I stay
You showed me the way
You are gone and here I stay
You didn’t tell me how to reach it anyway
You are gone and here I stay
So my problems didn’t go away
You are gone and here I stay
Once again waiting for you to say

Face reality everyday again
Being conscious makes it seem harder
But if you’re able to tame the system and then,
Take the good parts of it, a change will probably occur
And stay forever

So it’s up to me, I must find the answer
Even if in this case I’m always tied to money
Never giving up will help me go further
My wallet is open and my mind is ready
My mind is ready, my mind is ready
I am ready
Track Name: Hyper1
Hyper1(extended senses)

The extension of my senses
Are my snuffling hands, my listening glance
I smell to taste, the vision of a mouth
I hear to taste, the flavour of all sounds
I smell to taste the vision of a mouth
Now breathe and taste the flavour of a song

Ten fingers to smell, to touch the stench
Eyes to listen and see the silence
A nose to taste and breathe some colors
Ears to touch and listen by an act
Having been in a rush makes me conscious of that

Recovering sensations
Overwhelmed by emotions
See the sun and smile
Smell the smog and cry
Recovering sensations
Overwhelmed by emotions
Flowers make me laugh
Children bring me love

Insignificant things became useful
Forgotten tricks now emerge from the past
Old values destroyed by simplicity
Stop being tired of the rules
Judge referential attitudes of the mass
But never compromise your integrity
Who you are, what you feel
Go far and be real

I see the wind staring at me
Blowing until I disappear
Your visible hacks don’t make you a fool
But give you reason to use new tools
To behave in a way that
Lets yours senses take you away
Track Name: New Wave
New wave

I’m imbued
I’m a sponge
Constantly diving
Not already drowned

I’m in me
In being with you
In between, with who?
Try to figure out
Try it figure it out

I’m not depressed
Stop telling me lies about me
I’m conscious now
Maybe more than you are

I’m not depressed
Stop telling me lies about me
My new wave
I taste what I behave

I’m imbued
I’m a sponge
Constantly diving
Not already drowned

I’m in me
In being with you
In between, with who?

In my experiences…before
I’ve been sick, watched, frail, bored
Now that I know how to deal with it
Don’t come and tell me what I’m not
Try to figure out
Try to figure it out

I’m not depressed
Stop telling me lies about me
I’m conscious now
Maybe more than you are

I’m not depressed
Stop telling me lies about me
My new wave
I taste what I behave
Bottle of freedom
Projects in mind
The chance to dive
In my new wave

Imbued
sponge
diving
drowned
me
you
who
out
out
out
Track Name: Leitmotiv
Leitmotiv
Line up the pieces
Kinds of species

Check up all faces
Warm up the freeze
Check up all pieces
Link up the themes

Line up the pieces
The ones that make up
Your kind of species

Picking up the pieces
Messing up the thesis
What makes you fair?
Construct the puzzle
Drain out the faith
Build up your mind
Unleash the hate
See what you’ll find
Erase your troubles

Line up the pieces
Line up the pieces and see all faces

Line up the pieces
Align them on the crowd
Realize all vices
Of which humanity is proud (bis)


Line up the pieces
The ones that make up
Your kind of species

Picking up the pieces
Messing up the thesis
What makes you fair?
Construct the puzzle
Drain out the faith
Build up your mind
Unleash the hate
See what you’ll find
Erase your troubles

Line up the pieces
Line up the pieces and see all faces

Line up the pieces and target the middle or the left side or the top or wherever else, they are all middles of something, somewhere for someone

Die out, stick to, give in, take off, bring back, work out…
Buy up, dry up, throw up, clear up, stir up
Calm down and fade away…
