Track Name: Deep Space
Calling any base
This is Alpha Centauri
What's it gonna cost
To come and rescue me

In case you haven't heard
I've been lost in deep space
And if you didn't know
I'm the leader of the human race

I'm floating out here
For a hundred years or so
While time goes on forever

Forever is what they said to me
Forever is your friend
Forever will set you free
But this black hole in my mind
Has left me blind to see
Just what a waste of time
Forever turned out to be

And now I'm floating out here
For a hundred million years or so
While time goes on Forever

Forever is such waste of time

And now I'm floating out here
For a hundred million years or so
While time goes on Forever

Forever's what they said to me
Forever never bends
And Forever never bleeds
But this black hole in my mind
Has forced me to concede
Just what a waste of time
Forever turned out to be

And now I'm floating out here
For a hundred million years or so
While time goes on Forever

Forever
Track Name: New Sunrise
It's a brand new sunrise
And we've both got our own plans to make
You have to let the past die
But it's such a hard habit to break

If you play your cards right
Then you won't have a life filled with hate
You better let the past die
But it's such a hard habit to break

It's gonna be alright
Nobody lives tonight
Nobody dies tonight
And we all sleep tight
As we await the light of a new sunrise

If the mirror don't lie
Then we all have an image to fake
So let the sleeping dogs lie
But it's such a hard habit to break

It's gonna be alright
Nobody lives tonight
Nobody dies tonight
And we all sleep tight
As we await the light of a new sunrise

It's a brand new sunrise
And we've both got our own plans to make
You better let the past die
But it's such a hard habit to break
Track Name: Weight Of The World
When the weight of the world is coming down
And the weak are buried under ground
We will run straight to the fight
And we will rise up to new heights

When the weight of the world is coming down
Every building burning to the ground
We will keep our eyes on the prize
As we ascend up through the skies

Weight of the world

When the weight of the world is coming down
And the weak are buried under ground
We will run straight to the fight
And we will rise up to new heights

When the weight of the world is coming down
Giant Beavers rise up from the ground
We will keep our eyes on the prize
As we ascend up through the skies

Weight of the world

Weight
Track Name: The Halocline
Inside the halocline
There's no concept of time
There's nothing to fear
Except why we are here

We are forever floating
While above the scientist consulting
There's nothing to love
Except the things we dream of
And we dream all day

Inside the halocline
Everything is useless but this heart of mine
Apathy is my favorite state of mind

The forces that love you
Are the same forces that also judge you
They're caught up with time
Because they haven't learned about our state of mind
So they're left behind

Inside the halocline
Everything is useless but this heart of mine
Apathy is my favorite state of mind

Inside the halocline
There's no concept of time
There's nothing to fear
Track Name: Rosemary
She says rosemary won't let her pray
She lays in bed and turns her head away
She exhausts the world in her own special way
Will she find the time to let us in her day

The race to grow up has suddenly dropped it's pace
Slowed by memories that we cannot erase
In search of a more creative space
We discovered emptiness in it's place

She can't resist the pull of the world
Tired of holding on

In the ties that bind there lies a subtle fray
Before you speak your words please watch what you have to say
What we once wanted to hear now sounds so cliche
But everything that feels is subject to decay

She can't resist the pull of the world
Tired of holding on
With so little to hold on to

Her tired heart can't shine
On just a flutter
Ten thousand stories high
We die

She says rosemary won't let her pray
She lays in bed and turns her head away
Well she exhausts the world in her own special way
She never found the time to let us in her day
Track Name: Company Of Strangers
Violent whispers
Have such violent rings
The company of strangers
Waits in the wings
While pulling the strings

The suffering won't end it
You need to bleed it out
Conspire to hide it
Deep in the crowd
Where it's loud

I can't wait any longer
Send me on my way
While they grow stronger
Everyday

Violent endings
Feed our future doubts
Multiplied by envy
Amplify the sounds
Of shivers in the clouds

I can't wait any longer
Send me on my way
While they grow stronger
Everyday
Track Name: Gone Too Far
There's a star in every night
And I think you've just found yours
While just a flicker in it's light
It survives unlike any force

Now what will you say
When your starlight burns away
What will you say
When your starlight burns away

You'll say that it's no good
You'll suggest we should just forget it
And we'll say it doesn't mean shit
Worthless coming from a critic
Track Name: Mach 10
You're screaming at mach ten
I can't understand a word
And I'm driving through your bullshit
Ninety miles an hour in the curve

So are you gonna come with me
Or are you happy still
Because you're running in circles
Like you've got so much time to kill

I know how you love to kill

If you're gonna come with me
There's no time for dramatic scenes
Spitting out your cliches
Metaphors only hide the things you mean

Well a simple change of heart
Has me leaving you here
I should have known right from the start
It's all ringing in my ear

It's all ringing in my ear
