Track Name: I Don't Understand
Out in the darkness - your thoughts infect my mind
Look out - the sky is falling - your kind will not survive
There will be a day when you regret
The time you and I had met
Out in the darkness - I light my cigarette
Track Name: Running Through My Nightmares
I can hear the ocean call - runnin' through my nightmares
In a place where shadows fall - runnin' through my nightmares
Step down through the depths of my inner self confusion
Back down through my past expressions without conclusions
Track Name: Somewhere Nowhere
Well I see her face everywhere I go
But when I look for her I see she's nowhere
In this world ain't where I want to be
When I know she's waiting somewhere for me
Track Name: Trip Through Tomorrow
Blueprints of double yellow lines with patterns of rainbows in reverse
While the nerve spasms control my conscious mind
My decisions dispel depression
I'm lost in a time warp of painted air
You don't know how it feels to know how it will end
The black plague rages through the burning spots on my brain
The membranes I can smell are slowly dissolving
Into a dissident steam of spraying pink gumdrops
Track Name: Transparent Life
I see through shattered glass and
I see through walls of stone
I know the world's behind me
I find myself alone
It's alright-you know no one can see my eyes I said it's alright-you know I live a transparent life
Track Name: Death Is The Only Real Thing
You just found out that your world of stone was made out of powdered glass
Now you try to save your soul but it's too late-your time has come
Track Name: Disconnection
I don't mind if I gotta dropout-cracks running down my walls
I don't mind if (the) voice scream - I hear the Dark Ages call
I'm used to being alone
My thoughts and I are on my own
I finally made my scene
I don't mind if I stay in the light-what I said is what I mean
Disconnection's the state I'm going through
Track Name: Stems And Flowers
Technicolor dreams living in my eyes
Not a world of hate or a world of lies
I can't come back I met this girl
She took me to another world-a world that's built 'round stems-stems and flowers
Track Name: Flashback
Flashback-in the morning staring out at the sun
I get a flashback-the wallpaper on the wall is starting to run
I don't know why I hear a dead princess a calling out my name
Her reflection follows me-it's a flashback
Track Name: Memos From Purgatory
I'm on the outside-I'm looking in
A man without eyes has seen where I've been
The man with no face is a lot like myself
Like books without pages that sit on a shelf
I face time now I face myself
Track Name: Mystery Trip
Fallen idols crumble into the ground-venetian blinds are hanging upside down
I see the final curtains fall-where crimson patterns dance on cardboard walls
Frostbite falls on my paralyzed mind-I'm gonna take a trip-I'm gonna take a trip right now
Track Name: Non-Entity
Now I've gone out into the mist
My external strucyures can not exist
Ya can't calibrate my DNA
Psychoto-genic life has gone away
I am now a non-entity
Fading out into infinity
Track Name: Endless Circles
Through your eyes-the rain is falling an inside out design
Reactions from the other side tey drag you from behind
Through your eyes-you demonstrate you walk an endless line
Track Name: The Fading Of My Mind
Silent screams around me
Depression fills my time
Because I can't take it much longer and my mind is not getting stronger
The fading of my mind
