Track Name: Reflections
Right off the same track
We've had enough, don't take that
We live in fiction 'til we open up our eyes
A false reality, lap it up with our TV screens
Hey I've been there but now I see
One by one come awake
They sure put on a show
The more control with the less you know
We live in fiction 'til we open up
To live a frequency coloured
By waves sent, uttered
Hey I've been there but now I see
One by one
See what we're taught not to see
By one, come awake
This life is your own reflection
Can you trace this point to somewhere in your mind?
Coz you know this life, it started from inside
Can you see your world, just an echo of what's in your head
Can you see your world, just a vivid reflection
The old way it doesn't fit
We've got it all here at fingertips
We live in fiction 'til we open up our eyes
Believe it and it's so
Take a chance on yourself, you know
Hey I've been there but now I see
One by one come awake
What we're seeing here
Uniquely yours to define
What we're feeling here
Is making yours and making my reflection
Can you trace this point to somewhere in your mind?
Coz you know this life, it started from inside
Can you see your world, just an echo of what's in your head
Can you see your world, just a vivid reflection
Track Name: Get Out Alive
Satellites will fade in unfamiliar skies
We've set the destination so the path will light
We're evolving right before their eyes
Here we are, treading the new
In the ether, it's me and you
With just one question of: Will we get out alive? (Will we get out)
Will we get out alive
Out alive
We're taking leaps beyond those old past painted lines!
External rearrangement to mirror the inside!
Can we tell me will we get out alive? Out alive!
Here we are, treading the new
In the ether, it's me and you
With just one notion of: Will we get out alive? (Will we get out)
Will we get out alive
Hold on tight, we'll see this through
The colours hit a brighter hue
Will we get out alive
We're treading the new
It's me and you
Together
Will we get out alive
Hold on tight, we'll see this through
We're on to something new
Will we get out?
Track Name: Don't Break Apart
Something happened but I'm still the same
Nothing's different, yeah but something's changed
I'll try to figure it out
It's like I know the lines I'm supposed to hit
Only there's static stuck on my lips
This time, I just can't play along
From the corner I see you left a light on
And it's calling me to sleep
Just sleep it all away
But my head is swirling
With these recurring thoughts
That seem to want to stay
Don't break apart, break apart
Don't break apart, break apart
Don't break apart, break apart on us
Something happened, how can I explain
It's like I tapped into that side again of me
That I thought I left behind
Shrug it off, let the pulse persist
Stop and see it all for what it is
And claim yourself out of this
From the corner I see you left a light on
And it's calling me to sleep
But I've never been more awake
Don't break apart, break apart
Don't break apart, break apart
Don't break apart, break apart on us
We've come too far
Ignore imposing noises, hear your heart
We've come too far
Be what you are and don't you break apart
Head is swirling with these thoughts
Don't break apart
If you could see yourself
For who you really are
And not the distortion
No, don't you break apart
If you could see the truth
For what it really is
Not the distortion
No, don't you break
Track Name: Spectrum
What shade are you today?
When I could say it's all too much
Then I just kick and bring it back to love
Coz everything's within our touch
So just keep on holding on
You said you want it to be tonight
I say it's alright - just like you
You said you want it to be enough
I say it's over

Let me hear you run
Let me hear you scream
Let me hear you paint your name on this destiny
Make your move
It's only yours to choose
From the spectrum of this life

What shade are you?
I contemplate through starlit mind
Collecting through the moments of my life
Through all the things we've done
Here's to what's next to come
You said you wanted to touch the sky
I say it's always there for you
You said you wanted to leave your mark
Forever

Let me hear you run
Let me hear you scream
Let me hear you paint your name on this destiny
Make your move
It's only yours to choose
From the spectrum of this life
What shade are you?

Yeah
Do you believe that you're enough?
Coz I swear you are
You said you want it to be tonight
I say it's alright...

Let me hear you run
Let me hear you scream
Let me hear you paint your name on this destiny
Make your move
It's only yours to choose
From the spectrum of this life
Track Name: Align
The words you send
Loop and embed
Re-arranging all these reflections
Thought can become
A loaded gun
So where are you facing your crosshairs?
As soon as you believe it then you're allowed to see it
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
So where are you tonight?

Align what you feel inside to what you want and focus the why
Without reason there's no fucking way
Might appear alone
Just an overtone
Of where you are living in your head
What's next revealed
Is only as strong as you make it
You make it real
Align what you feel inside to what you want and focus the why
Without reason there's no fucking way
Align tonight
I found the reason, oh I found the reason
Oh what can you see?
Where's your frequency, my darling
There's many more realities for you and me
We create our own
Where's your frequency, my darling
Where are you tonight?
Align!
Align what you feel inside to what you want and focus the why
Without reason there's no fucking way
Align what you feel inside to what you want and focus the why
Without reason there's no other way
Track Name: Nexus (Feat JP Anderson)
It’s on tonight, the walls glitch in to doors
When life’s a mirror then get back to the source
You don’t have to believe what you’ve been fed
Coz it all starts with us!
Get with this rise in consciousness
We're living in the advent of a new horizon
Break the chains of control imposed
Filter darkness from a mind that's heightened
Why - let your own truth get numbed
From a coma, false veracity, finally we're waking up
Put together fragmented pieces
And know you're not alone
Oh yeah
There’s more than one way to go
You have a choice

Oh you’ll never see this world the same since you felt this truth
Oh you've looked so far outside for what’s been here in you
Oh it all changes tonight now we’ve lit the fuse
Coz it all starts with us
Start the chain reaction!
Point blank in the face of power
In this nexus, it only takes one move
Start the chain reaction
Their chaos is our rule, move 'em back
Focus the mind state and we can break these chains

In pieces, resisting
Links scattered across a new horizon
A vision, decision
Have the courage to step outside yourself
Havoc, stand up
Point blank in the face of hegemony
What's up, motherfucker, you looking at me?
Surveillance won't save this system
We sketch our fate
And rearrange the shape
Right here
Designed to make the earth shake

Oh you’ll never see this world the same since you felt this truth
Oh you've looked so far outside for what’s been here in you
Oh it all changes tonight now we’ve lit the fuse
Coz it all starts with us

It’s on tonight, walls glitch to doors
There's a change, the time is right it's up to us to...
Break the chains
Reclaim the mind
It’s on tonight yeah the walls glitch to doors
This life is a mirror so get back to the source
And its feeding back, to respond or react, to align or attack
It’s our shot
Every single day we have a choice
We’ve got our minds and we’ve got our voice
It starts with us! (there’s power in the design)

Start the chain reaction!
Point blank in the face of power
In this nexus, it only takes one move
Start the chain reaction
Their chaos is our rule, move 'em back
Focus the mind state and we can break these chains

You’ll never see this world the same since you felt the truth
It’s in you
Track Name: Fall
And I'll wait for you to fall in my arms..

My sweet addiction
You turn me round, you turn me on
My new fixation beckons me
Don't fight the waves, just feel the flow
My sole intention is everything that I need
Coz I won't stop until you're here with me
Here with me
Fall!
I've set the markers
Reset the headspace
I've seen it so clear
Fall!
Gotta stay in the moment
In the state you've chosen
I have done everything that I can do

And I'll wait for you to fall in my arms
Coz we live like this is ours 'til it all comes
(I'm living in the world I drew.. coz every thought and feeling creates truth)
To wake up
To wake inside
My own benedictions
Peaking the passion to the edge
The final step in letting go
Become the change in a free fall
My own convinctions
I'm phasing out of what once was
Internal tweak to make invisible come visible
Fall!
Silhouettes alluring
While the colours are forming
I've seen it so clear
Fall!
Gotta stay in the moment
In the state you've chosen
I have done everything that I can
What it is to be living our own calligraphy.
And I wont stop until you're here with me
What do you call reality?
When what you feel and touch is nothing more than energy

And I'll wait for you to fall in my arms
Coz we live like this is ours 'til it all comes
To wait for you to fall
Track Name: Monochrome (Feat Roman Marisak)
I say goodbye to all of these reasons
That we built so high to keep us stranded
'Cause the starlight shows the monochrome for what it really is
The pseudo prophets preach again, live in HD, they weave their webs
You never doubt a single thing, the absent stories you believe
Oh it might be tabboo to you to shift your gaze an inch
With arrogance they swing, making all your decisions
The starlight shows the monochrome for what it really is
I'll take this chance
And I won't look back
Let's say goodbye this time
Explosions ignite the black and white

Tonight I'll take this chance
Tonight I won't look back
Have you ever stopped to clear the lens, the pantomime can scar but never mends
If you open up your mind, you'll find, things are really not so fine
If you could only see anew
You would understand
Their arrogance is sick, Yes you would start to care
The starlight shows the monochrome for what it really is
Such fear porn for the masses, bleeding on the fresh canvas of a fashioned mind
Oh so quick to believe it, simply 'cause they have screened it, black and white
Swear that the sky is falling, misdirection, distorting, 'til you give yourself away
The starlight shows the monochrome for what it really is
I say goodbye to all of these reasons
That we built so...

Tonight I'll take this chance
Tonight I won't look back
Tonight I won't look back
I won't look back
Track Name: Creations (Feat Natasha Cox)
There's loaded words
Avert your mind
You attract where you set your eye.
In all these turns
This is your life
You choose what you let inside
You and me colour the night

Creations

Yeah
Why live tomorrow
When we can live today
Let go, let go, I know you'll find your way
Blank psychic martyrs
That love you to waste
Leave your ghosts, let them fade away
Coz we all live in our own creations
Live inside our dreams
Coz we all live in our own creations
Connect to source

Here we are in this now
There's nothing else
Who we are, what we allow
It all comes down to yourself
We long for truth
But how do we get there?
If we live in love, all else will fade out
You and me colour the night
Any shade we want

Yeah
Why wait tomorrow
When we're here today
Let go, let go, I know you'll find your way
We really own this
Let the noise drift away
Leave your ghosts, let them fade away
Coz we all live in our own creations
Live inside our dreams
Coz we all live in our own creations
Until it's over
Until we've made it safe
Manifesting everything
Side by side with you
Looking on
All that we create
Track Name: Authors
This narrative is getting old
Still we get it pushed in our face
On the day to day
Haunting airwaves
New models but the same is told
"Focus on the lowest vibration we point you to"
They say:
Don't think for yourself
Don't love in yourself
Don't try to change anything
They say:
Don't think for yourself
Don't love in yourself
Don't question anything
It's exactly as it should be
You're a fool to disagree
There's no other answers 'cept the ones we give
Or so they say

Faux icons; paper thin
Spotlight anywhere but within
Designed to lead astray
From what's really happening
New models but the same is sold
"Worship the superficial, praise the hollow dolls"
They say:
Don't think for yourself
Don't love in yourself
Don't try to change anything
Don't question anything!
There's no other answers 'cept the ones we give
Or so they say
There's no other reason to go deeper in
Or so they say
There's no other answers 'cept the ones we give
Or so they say
We rise
We are
We want truth
Oh there's a war being waged on consciousness
We gotta raise and break the spell - of anyone that says:
You shouldnt think for yourself
Or love in yourself
Or try to change anything
To think for yourself
Or love in yourself
Question everything
There's no other answers 'cept the ones we give
Or so they say
Track Name: Quasar
Familiar resonance
Perception can be reborn
I've held long to this picture
Now it's come fully formed
Now I've become..
Quasar
Moments etched forever
Reflections
A time we wore
I've held long to this picture
Now it's come fully formed
Now I've become..
Every time, born of microcosmic eye
From inside to a physical reply
How it comes to save you
How it comes to save you
It's on you, come and widen up your sight
It's your life, Yeah it's your choice tonight
How it comes to save you
How it comes to save you
Quasar
With the flick of a thought
I saw my life flash, I saw it all
Quasar
With the strength of intent
All our wounds will mend
Quasar
Right here with open mind
I've found who I really am
We framed ourselves in now
And it's become
How beautifully complete
How it formed
You and I
Quasar
