Track Name: Old Soul
I am, just an old soul Wandering, to find my home Many lives ago Knowing the sun will not rise, on this hole My old soul Walking in my own footsteps Following the same path that I've left in this sand One thousand times before How did I get to this point again? I've spent lifetimes trying to find The answer to these problems of mine And I question when it's my time When it’s my time? Now deja vu seems like a daily occurrence Watching my life unfold before my eyes, unfoldingThis out-of-body experience, has taken all of my reasoning from me The closer I get the harder it seems, (the harder it seems) That this reality is pulling on me. Is pulling on me Is it deja vu or just a dream? (just a dream) Have I been here before or is it all make believe? And how could it be? I am just an old soul wandering in the dark to find what was my home, What was my home And when I'm lost, I close my eyes and let the memories take lead Back to that familiar place, the place I long to be. To feel so elated, while placed in my home, that I’ve known for so long I need to embrace it, but I doubtlessly know, I’ll aimlessly roam More than just some impressive imagery, That led me here without, any true – Without any true memories
Track Name: The Balance
With the sun above our heads Open your eyes to the reality That we, are nothing more than guests In this place we call home So often we take for granted The earth that we see The air that we need In order to live these fragile lives We are powerless against the forces of this world Our whole lives spent thinking that we were in control The earth has a grasp around our throats We are now in its control. After today, the world will start to change As the tides shift, our lives will never be the same How could we let this slip between our finger tips?We will witness the fall of humanity Our Lives will fall With the earth, Grasping around our throats We are now in – in its controlWith the moon above us Look to the sky and see That we are so insignificant Balance will be restored This starts the reconstruction of a now lost world We must now watch, as the tables are turned Towards the rebirth of a planet and the destruction of our home A new beginning, apart from our own The plates divide The asphalt erodes While the mountains subside Allowing her roots to show Balance will be restored We’ve worn out our welcome
Track Name: Gaia: Reconciliation
Separated at birth Torn from my mother’s side To live in an unknown world Grown accustom to this life Never knowing she waits for me, She waits for me Never knowing she waits for me, She waits for me Sheltered from the only thing I needed Kept from the truth of who I really am What am I supposed to be, not the man you see Disconnected from nature Grown apart, over years Contradicted on what we find value in Committed to be with her again Disconnected from nature Committed to be with her again Off of the beaten path That I have wandered on nights, just like this Feeling as the moon, is watching over my every step As the wind breaks the silence And I feel my mother's touch Blind, to a world, veiled in torment led astray, Ably forced into a life, guided through our ignorance, leading us where – Where we were the heir of her life. For my time spent deprived, of who I am inside I’ll reshape our design, and fend for her in spite, of our world Clouds gather above, taking us back to where we started from Clouds gather above, bringing darkness to all and engulfing the sun
Clouds gather above, taking us back to where we started from Clouds gather above, bringing darkness to all and engulfing the sun Down on my knees Humbled with my face in my hands Raindrops descend on this broken body Ears deafened by nature’s cries Violent light, projections Violent light casts her silhouette, projections on the tree line Violent light as the light casts her silhouette, projections on the tree line She’s returned She has returned Off the beaten path, that I have wandered on nights just like this Feeling as the moon is watching my every step The wind breaks the silence, and I feel my mother’s touch Separated at birth, torn from my mother’s side To live in an unknown world, grown accustom to this way of life She has returned to me
Track Name: Aokigahara
Branches hang low in this sea of trees, Along with hope and our heads. This was a place of life, of beauty Now a shrine full of misery and regret. Branches hang low in this sea of trees, This was a place of life, of beauty May it rot Feeling my way through this dark forest, To find a place to rest my head With only my hands to see The deeper I find myself, the silence grows I think this is what it means to be alone The deeper I find myself, the silence it grows The deeper I go, the silence grows The deeper I go, it grows Just like the world around me is muted With only my heart and my thoughts to hear I think this is what it means to be alone. My weathered hands press against this motionless body Searching for a pulse, searching for any sign of life. How long have I been rotting? How long have I been rotting? How long have I been rotting for? How long? Bury me at the base of my family tree Let the soil consume me Take me back to the start Back to the beginning Back to my roots
Back to my roots Bury me, at the base of my family tree Bury me, let the soil consume me Soil consume me
