Track Name: Thanatophobia
We are born to fade into the nothingness.
As time passes by so do we

I try to deny it, Deny this inevitable eternity.
Unlike most things in life, This is the only thing that is guaranteed

This fear controls me from within. Cortisol is rushing through me,
The only Saviour ignorance. Into the grave, I'll remain

You try to tell me that there is a god and a place of eternal bliss.
All we know is we think so we are. This is all we have

Thoughts are rushing through my head
About my ignorance to this impending doom.
Is this reality? Have I not slipped into a lucid dream?

This fear controls me from within. Cortisol is rushing through me,
The only Saviour ignorance. Into the grave, I'll remain

Life is eternal
Track Name: Universal Consciousness
We create our own realities, yet no two are the same
But life is fundamentally one universal consciousness
Excommunicate awareness from the filters of your senses

We are all

Open your eyes and read the signs
All your knowledge of the world is trapped inside your mind
If you shut down your left hemisphere
Then the answer will be clear

"The cosmos is also within us, we are made of star stuff.
We are a way for the cosmos to know itself." - (Carl Sagan)

13.8 billion years ago
Was the origin of all that we know
All of life and consciousness was made of exploding stars
Evolving to all that we are

We are all
Track Name: The Superiority Complex
We are all being who walk the earth believing our knowledge makes us superior
When our lives end we're all alone rotting flesh and bone

We are but a spec in the vastness of the cosmic universe
Yet we proceed to think we Matter
Has evolved into a conscious, selfish ego
And it won't miss you when you're gone
When you're gone

Some day we will all become all but nothing
Just like we have already been
Yet this concept still invokes misery
Track Name: Finite
We ignore the eternal void for strength to carry one
Forgetting the end
Inevitable eternity

This life is finite

This life is finite

What is the point of this short existence in forever?
What is the point?
In the end, we all lose
Track Name: Numb The Pain
Numb the pain of my inevitable death.

I fall down to my knees and pray oh god save me
I think as I kneel in the sun there is no one
No one.

It's certain my day will come
Decomposing transcending this body of mine and becoming one
Once again a part of the cosmos

I pick myself up off the ground no help can be found
The concept that death is inevitable is fine for we are one and all

Numb the pain
Track Name: Eternity
I despise this chain of lies offering selected few salvation
The human mind was not designed to last forever
So pray for your Saviour and I'll pray for none
Take bliss in your ignorance for the Divine


Divine


Eternity among the worthy devoting my life to being a slave
I'd rather die than live in the sky I am my own master

So pray for your Saviour and I'll pray for none
Take bliss in your ignorance for the Divine

In the end, we all fall down
Track Name: Darkness Swallows
Outside the lifeless vortex is the event horizon
All of light and matter pass the point of no return
Asphyxiating blackness feed upon the light
The ignorant observer falls victim to its might

Darkness Swallows, Gaea follows

Life extermination of cancer on unconsciousness
Following the laws of time complete irrelevance
Behold the cosmic void behind the genocide
One last breathe for mankind then everybody dies

How self-obsessed were we to think we had a meaning
Everything we ever knew was on the pale blue dot
Suspending in a ray of light

Darkness Swallows Gaea follows
Darkness Swallows Gaea follows
Track Name: Anesthetised
Taken from my senses the thinks that make me real
Instruments are coming out of me as I fade away

Fade away

What if I don't awaken, where will I go?
What if I don't awaken?

As I fall asleep, I feel relief
No backing down, no pain
I feel strangely content with this
Perhaps I won't return

As sirens are wailing I see a bright light
My pineal gland believes it's my time
The surgeons are rushing to preserve my life
but I am already gone
