Track Name: Escape
LYRICS:

Stay close
hold on to
the things that make you real
the tension you will feel

Stay close
hold on
tonight is when it ends
a helping hand we’ll lend

The faith you have in me
more than the eye can see
a thought which you set free
came tumbling over me

The faith you have in me
more than the eye can see
a thought which you set free
came tumbling over me

Escape
the self demise
they are after

Portray
the living one
with laughter

Deny
your ill informed
disaster

Exclude
the compromised
adventure

you’re not allowed to be
you’re not allowed to see
you’re not allowed to feel
you’re not allowed, you’re not allowed

Escape
your bitterness
and learn to
deal with us

Exclude
your rightfulness
and make sure
you stay with us

forgive and forget
forgive and forget
forgiven
Track Name: The Tribe
LYRICS:

Come on down, my son
You seem to be, the chosen one
sacrifice to worship
to fight and conquer
this violent nature

to hunt or gather, it is true
mother earth, will see to you
compromise your freedom
defend your self and
this right to live here

all the fights that you begin
are fights that only you could win
rise to the top, fight till they drop
and let them worship you
as long as you reign

We are all insignificant
a spoke to the wheel
a pillar to bare this
fight for survival
we strive for our own peace of mind

And when evening turns black
nothing
nothing left
the moon watches over death and dawn
all hope
long but gone

the faith of your foes
is set in stone
their mission was useless
you send them home
Track Name: Mutate
LYRICS:

Momentum is changing
in different ways
to elevate
your sinful days

And those who wonder
and go astray
will contemplate
their lives away

Remember the time, before it all went wrong
to live and forget, it’s all just said and done
said and done

Leave this behind
there’s more to find
but, keep this in mind, we are not done with you
it’s all entwined

to flee
your life
and set
things right
to make
believe
and doubt
or greef

to flee
your life
and set
things right
to make
believe
and doubt
or greef

Leave this behind
there’s more to find
but, keep this in mind, we are not done with you
it’s all entwined

ascend on down to, wherever
you feel safe to, go over
all the lies you, brought to the
loving one, you left out to
face truth, all by herself
lost and hurt, alone again
a simple life, you complicate
confidence evaporate

to flee
your life
and set
things right
Track Name: Inertia (live)
From afar you stand tall
strong and fierce, know it all
is it a mask you wear?
it seems so hard to bare

Forgetful you are
like no other apart
from your uncertainty
always questioning yourself

The weight is on your shoulders
for you to bear alone
reach out for help just call us
the way to go we’ll show

The tears turn into wine
a mirror lost it's shine
the side effects of
losing faith and all ambition

Like a widow in disguise
afraid of his advice
the familiar sense of
leaving comfort for desire

You are acting all care free
but that just what we see
there’s an underlying
will to go and stop denying

You’re here now
so let go
and give in to your self
give in to your self

You’re here now
so let go
and give in to your self
give in to your self

Stay
with me
and let
them see

Live it like no other
time lose control
and tap into your
senses

You’re here to rediscover
it’s all yours now
do whatever
you must do

The rules there are to break
the reason long forgotten
it is your turn to shine
and don’t forget

You’re here now
so let go
and give in to your self
give in to your self

You’re here now
so let go
and give in to your self
give in to your self

WAIT

To lean against the
sense of falling
open up
it’s so appalling
reach out to us now
reach out to us now

To lean against the
sense of falling
open up
it’s so appalling
reach out to us now
reach out to us now

The secrets you hold
much deeper than this
you must go
further
in to
other
worlds and

Time to evoke
the feelings you’ve had
release
the tension
of the
passion
you’ve lost

stop this
it’s over
cut it out
