Track Name: Shapeshifter
Thinking about the past when all was vivid green
I want to go back and see what could never be seen
Hazy encounters with colourful individuals
Sharing myself, discovering

Shapeshifter

The skies are grey
Skies are grey
Our lives will change
Lives will change

My brief legacy
A speck of significance
In an ocean of this
This thing we call life

Others gaining witness
To sides of me I forgot
The jagged polygons of self
Flattened over time

Edging toward
Alternate outcomes
Not overstepping
Ever but once

My limbs are frayed
Under trees of shade
Track Name: The Endeavour
Truth or dare
Believe or resist
Calm or the storm
A late night endeavour

Altered state of mind
Vessels standing empty
Figures looming
Stimulus Abundance

Brushing by
By your consciousness
There's no escaping irrationality

Flutter your wings
To calm your nerves
Angles as viewpoints
Paranoia over shoulder

Chaotic imagery
Dancing caucasoids
Thoughts set you free
And hold you captive

Brushing by
By your consciousness
There's no escaping irrationality
Track Name: Verdancy Blues
And in this moment we're all the same
The situations we create, dictate
Impossible to recreate
The thoughts erupt, they penetrate our mood

When it came into the room
I could not resist the urge, a guilty pleasure
I was not prepared for what came next
A sudden change in shape, and that is how:

I lost my self that night
Never to be seen again
I lost the will to fight
I lost my way, I lost my friends, I lost my mind

Through eyes of rusted
Rusted copper
Thoughts manifest as complex machines
Complex machines

I lost myself that night
Never to be seen again
I lost the will to fight
I lost my way, I lost my friends, I lost my mind

Through eyes of rusted
Rusted copper
Thoughts manifest as complex machines
Complex machines

As my world bleeds red
I see reflections
of the past in broken glass

Intricate gears give life to infinity
A work of art for my eyes only

As a being of pure light
Not held back by the physical world
I embrace that I'm not real
And in this moment I know
I am death

And in this moment we're all the same
The situations we create, dictate
Impossible to recreate
The thoughts erupt, they penetrate our mood
Track Name: Art of Linearity
Music is no longer art
It is a calculated sound
In which our preferences
Are determined by criteria

Music is facing
A century old battle
Religion or science
Faith or logic

Religion or science
Faith or logic

The music genome
Sounds like fun
Is it a way forward
Or only back

Art says it's infinite
Science says it's finite
Regardless of the goggles worn
The figures are profound

Music is still just a speck
In the grand scheme of things
We gain egos and pretentiousness
For the miniscule art we make

The limits of audio space
Can never be fully eplored
Parameters of genre and taste
Cripple our sensory limbs

The music genome
Sounds like fun
Is it a way forward
Or only back
Track Name: Terrarium
One hundred years from now
The data race will
Transcend into a...
A new reality

The experience machine has exceeded our tangible world
It is a place of diminishing, once healthy souls
It is dependence of an abstract place
It is an addictive empty space

The Terrarium is the sweet beginning of the bitter end
Our consumption will begin to shrivel and bend
Our negelected exterior friend
The Terrarium will get the better of us

What goes up
Must come down
The exit is lost
The inside will starve
