Track Name: 1. Being (disambiguation)
Being (disambiguation)

*main riff*
being means life, life, for all.
but all do not live, parallel.

focus my, conscience, on this,
then that, choices, choices.

What's your, motive to live?

Living means having, reasons, to live,
in itself.

*second riff*
Make sure you stay free,
from the burden of being.
To lose yourself in thoughts of meanings,
is a task set for those who let life it-self pass by.


*bridge-riffery*
to live is to love, to live is to lose,
in life you experience, you learn, you shape.
And all you have to do, is be there, be you.
to be is to be, being means living.

*main riff cut-up*
Being means life, live, everyone! Live! Life!
Being means seeing, hearing, everything! Sense! Life!
Track Name: 2. Earthwise
Verse 1 ph1 (Grunt)

See it grow,
watch it thrive.
conducted by,
the season's drive.
. Nature
. does not
. Kneel!

ph2

Centuries,
passing by.
Turning round,
it's axis Y.
. and then,
. man came
. knocking
. at the door!

ph3 (Clean)
From that moment
on earth fueled mankind.


Chorus-y (Grunt)
Man does, evolve, revolt, progress.
Thinking, making, futures, happen.

Man does, evolve, revolt, progress.
Thinking, making, futures, happen.


Bridge

A shift in dominion,
a change in dynamic.
Present and future colliding.
Nature's groove does not allow,
stability in the now.

Chorus-y (Grunt)
Man does, evolve, revolt, progress.
Thinking, making, futures, happen.

Walking, in front, of the, wave.
Spawning, futures, where they, walk.

Transition (Spoken, grunt, clean)
In order to get a grasp on the concept of evolution,
we must open, our minds,
to what must,
be.
Rid us of these,

Chains, which keep us safe,
hiding the real world from thought.

We. are. the. world.
from mi-cro-sco-pic to ma-cro-cos-mic
we are part of it and much, much more

Verse 2
So there it is,
the synergy,
of life on earth,
just let it be.
. life will,
. always,
. survive!

The way of earth,
is the only way.
Track Name: 3. Mort.Gauge
No. 5 Mort.gauge

*Verse*
How do you,
value death?
Does it end,
or does it begin.

*CH*
Who are we,
to play gods among men.
Will we ever cherish life.
Not to waste it away.

*Verse*
Recind your message, of war.
Recind these bounties on heads.
wasting others for your sake,
defines your mort.gauge.

*CH*
Who are we,
to play gods among men.
Will we ever cherish life.
Not to waste it away.

*Bridge*
Save yourself, accept the sanity,
of our end awaiting.
But rest assured, it will wait, until
all the grains of sands have fallen.
And sitting idly by, will never, sever
the line leading you there.
The inescapable truth, without a doubt,
worth living for.


Don't sink in a,
meaningless hole,
elevate yourself,
rise above the notion
of cessation.
Make gold of shit,
lead the better life.


*CH*
Who gave us the right,
to play gods among men.
Will we ever cherish life.
Not to waste it away.
Track Name: S...O . . . S..
No. 7 Save Our Souls

*CH*
Save Our Souls,
Save Our Souls.

Everyone passing through life,
must need saving some time.
Inherent to existence,
a need infused.

*Verse*
the Maladies, of our Entity,
Entertain, in the Symphonies,
of our Suffering, Stuttering,
Turbulent, Lives.

*Pre-Ch*
Merciless (to a point) energy.
un-Fortunate (yes, it is) synergy
this test is to see if you can,

*CH*
Save Your Souls,

Save Your Souls

Everyone passing through life,
must need saving some time.
Inherent to existence,
a need infused.

*Verse*
Reeling, for the rail,
hold on, don't fall.
Ask for help, receive it,
accept it, live.

*Pre-Ch*
Merciless (to a point) energy.
un-Fortunate (yes, it is) synergy
this, test is to, see, if you can,

*Bridge*
Saaaaaaaaave

Fight, the lows,
Ride, the highs.
Reflect, within,
and breathe, free.

Try, to see,
the freedom and the rot.
Surrender to that,
which saves you.

*Outro*
Even though there’s nothing wrong with trying,
by yourself.
Sometimes you just need others.

They will help you find out what can save you.
Just ask for help, accept it and live.
Track Name: 5. Sunscope
8. Sunscope

*Verse*
Jump, a thousand miles,
Look, around,
Be dazzled by,
the bigger picture.

Spotted black,
a warp to reality.
The sickening scale of it all,
sucking at your soul.

*Verse variation*
It astounds! It confounds!
It surrounds, devoid of sound.
leave you at sea, will the galaxy.

*Verse variation 2*
Your mind astrand, your wits have gone,
you and your sentience left,

Your mind astrand, faded to blank,
basking in the brightest sunlight.

*Bridge 1*
Eyes, so blank,
the need for life.

Taken, away,
a soul abandoned.

*Bridge 2*
Spotted black, coming to,
light it is, the life for you.

*Bridge 3*
and when you see again,
will you believe in,
these matters of life
and death and space and time.

Could, you, believe, in, life?

*Verse 2*
Jump, back down,
look around,
be dazzled by,
the sunscope.

Spotted black,
apart from reality,
gives us the necessary.
enlightening perspective.

Sunscope!!!!

*Outro*
But you, stayed behind,
Left alone,
