Track Name: Atlas
Coming up fast
Atlas is buckling down
From the new weight of the world
A mother load enemy
Fighting gravity itself
You and I...dare to try...

Out of control
Harness the heavy feel-ling
I have left long ago
I feel eighteen hundred strong
Fighting gravity itself
You and I...dare to try...

There's no wonder
There's no mystery
Euphoria, is it my Mecca
Euphoria, the scene is blown

Coming up short
Atlas is falling down
From the new weight of the world
A mother load enemy
Fighting gravity itself
You and I...dare to try...

There's no wonder
There's no mystery
Euphoria, is it my Mecca
Euphoria, the scene is blown

You and I...dare to try...
Track Name: No Phantom
I'm feeling you, you don't feel me
Loving's easy when you don't see
I'm no phantom

Scatter them out
Settle them down
These itchy feeling of excess
Now what if I were to tell you blow by blow?
It's a lack of conscience I know too well to know

Somewhere outside, far from myself
On a plate glass window
There's a bit of me yet
It's no phantom.

Tapping into you lets me see
What part of you is inside me
What if I were a bullet in your gun?
With nothing stopping you...you better run.

Somewhere outside, far from myself
On a plate glass window
There's a bit of me yet
It's no phantom.
Track Name: Oppenheimer Eyes
I can see where we'll go from here
Thrown down, pent up words we could not say

You come. You come to me.
I'm holding up your Oppenheimer eyes
I didn't want to let you down
Roots lain to bare
So deep...so wide...so sexual...
From the movement

There's no answer, only the searching
And we even let that slip away

You come. You come to me.
I'm holding up your Oppenheimer eyes
I didn't want to let you down
Roots lain to bare
So deep...so wide...so sexual...
From the movement
Track Name: Jetsam
Peacefully released
Peacefully released into your soul
Time is to be felt, not held
Death and destruction, kills itself.
Track Name: The Restoration
I won't be there still
I hold on to the golden image
A residue that can be so tragic
It will not undo.

Tomorrow will not be the one that's gonna save me
Tomorrow won't be the one that'll be my hero

Building a way back
Back to the beginning seldom will work
Don't look back on a few bright lines
It's all here for you.

Tomorrow won't be the one that's gonna save me
Tomorrow won't be the one that'll be my hero
Tomorrow's the opium for the static hopeful

I won't be there still.
Sometimes I can't put asunder yesterday
Forgetting where it is can be so tragic
It's all in the now.
Track Name: Sucker Punch
The majestic white, white sheets
Slowly fold
Nothing is lost
Except the gift we gave to ourselves

Like a shadow on the ground
That's fading darker without a sound
Gotta watch out for the sucker punch.

We are sons and daughters of the "no solution".
Here lies the love, kicking...

Against all resistance, I hope this flies
But I've got memories in my eyes
Walk on...invisible.
Throwing back and few, I wait...
With might and main, I'll wait for you, but...
I gotta watch out for the sucker punch.
Track Name: Deep In The Mystery
Blind me in my ghostly lust of the
Flickering nova lighted dust
Become my thoughts, become my blood
Into the night, below and above
You can only go to places that you let in
Losing control is how we begin
Finding solace deep in the mystery

Deep in the mystery
I beat you my heart in the silver sea
Filling in the space, by filling the time
Goes beyond our depth and beyond our minds
I twist and turn through the memories
That lie like kisses from the Siren Furies
Is it too late, or is it too soon?
A codex of the dead, of the rune
Intangible fruits, that we descend
Shattering the truths, and waking the dead
Solace in the deep mystery

Deep in the mystery
Track Name: Acrophobia
Acrophobia

We can hold the line
Or we can let it go
Leaping in a single bound
Forty stories high

I'm coming in like a boomerang
Yea, I'm coming out of this death spin
Say goodbye to the screaming
Angelic voices

Calm yourself

Feeling life impact is arching back and letting go

Hold on to nothing

Open your eyes to hitting bottom
Open yourself to the possibilities
Open up to the king-size certainty

Hold on to nothing

Calm yourself
Track Name: Anywhere
I return to hear the thrushes to sing
They take me anywhere out of this world
More than one sun burns
Take wrapper off it's better that way
Anywhere out of this world

To be or become?
Unexplainable, unobtainable love
Old enough to forget, but young enough to want to remember
Anywhere out of this world
I'll begin
I'll begin to begin again
Anywhere out of this world
Take me anywhere out of this world.
