Track Name: This Is Our Life
Let’s have the time our lives
We can’t just waste it away
They say that time is money so
Let’s spend it on something great


Come out and join us we'll celebrate the fortune
Of our lives as we know them


Are you with me now?
Can I ask you how
You see me?

Forget the times you’ve cried
You’ll be by my side
Next to me

When I stray from the pain and the harm
The closer I get to your love and your arms

When we share a kiss
I will know that this
Is our life


Dreaming of our paradise
That seems to be in our grasp
Moments and memories come and go
Lets make the ones that can last


Come out and join us we'll celebrate the fortune
Of our lives as we know them


Are you with me now?
Can I ask you how
You see me?

Forget the times you’ve cried
You’ll be by my side
Next to me

When I stray from the pain and the harm
The closer I get to your love and your arms

When we share a kiss
I will know that this
Is our life


Are you with me now?
(Finding paradise)
Can I ask you how
(You see all I have to give)
You see me?
(We will stay on our rails, we will tell all these tales)

Forget the times you’ve cried
(It is far behind)
You’ll be by my side
(I hope to see you there)
Next to me
(My next trick brings us closer to the life we always hoped for)

When I stray from the pain and the harm
The closer I get to your love and your arms

When we share a kiss
(I hope I never miss)
I will know that this
(You are the one I hoped for)
Is our life
(When the curtain brings us home, we will never be alone)


Seething with pride on the outside
Setting and getting what we had our eyes
On
Unstoppable, improbable that
We will not make the best of what we hold, since
This is our life
Track Name: Up There
Listen
Listen to the everglade, up there, waiting
Blowing winds are flowing through, combing, grazing
Up there

Breathing
Watching with a thoughtful eye, how mysterious
Trying not to come off shy, please don’t fear this
Come here

Tranquil, where our eyes meet
Engrossed in the grove of my sinful defeat
Secure, safe from the space down below
Waiting for this kind of right
Unraveling peace with the moon and its light
Our home, revealed by the shine of its glow


Circumstance dancing with beauty
Just as they should be
Hold on

Child-like eyes like the moon plea,
“We’ll be as we could be”
Stay strong

On a portrait a god would
Envision
The music is radiating grace


Come up and thrive with me
You'll feel alive with me
This is what I wanted
This is what I need


Achieve
Conjuring the best of dreams for the dreamless
Conception
Of the best of things, thoughtless, seamless
Up there

Will you please stop
Your unsettled mind?
Notice the past and present combined

Calling up there,
"Open up the gates"
Lock us inside, keep us safe


Circumstance dancing with beauty
Just as they should be
Hold on

Child-like eyes like the moon plea,
“We’ll be as we could be”
Stay strong

Purple twilight shining in the
Distance
On our world that exists in our own space


Come up and thrive with me
You'll feel alive with me
This is what I wanted
This is what I need


So unclear
The mysterious ring of the birds and the things but
Its so pleasant

I forgot, for a moment I thought that
I would stay here forever but I must
Take my presence

Back to where I belong
Please stay
Wait for me to come back
But as a matter of fact
I'm not for certain this journey I'm currently in has a care of the area I End up at

Ain't it a shame
I may not see this whole world again
I may not ever learn your own
Name

How do I know, back homes, where I belong
I think I got it all
Wrong, wait

The things that I've seen
All of the unbelievably serene
Makes
Going back home feel

Obscene, makes
A nightmare appear from a dream
Listen, you know what I mean

I've made a mistake
Mistaken the weight of our choices I chose them and now its too late
Give me a chance

Swear to God this circumstance vanished
Before I knew it was gone

So damn speechless
Thought there was at least this
Neatness in the design
I thought I knew

Trying not to fear this
Steering away now
I don't wanna hear this, come on
It can't be true

Stay with me
We can make our old home like this
If you really want to try this, with me
You'll feel free
We don't need to try to fly, just
We can make it down here, come on, why don't you want to


Come down and thrive with me
You'll feel alive with me
This is all that I wanted
This is all that I need


Come down
Come down
Track Name: Antarctica
Out on a glacier, and feeling the scene
Losing himself to the divine serenity
Sky-tearing rays of light through the clouds
God only knows what he’s planning now


Cracking under the pressure
Crumbling with fatigue
Rolling down on the mountain side
Have you seen what I’ve seen?
Mountain caps pierce the sky
Nowhere left to hide
Is it just all the snow?
Or is his hair turning white?


Instigate all of our thoughts
Teach us all that you have taught
Obsession of you supplies
Is all we see


Now he is the one
Standing up against it
Brutal terrain but its not hopeless
Fear hot as the sun
Tired of it all
But he can’t to escape the fall
Go to him, know who’s grim destiny festers away
He will protect with the warmth of an ice’s decay


Searching through all the pieces
Looking for what is lost
Can he find what he’s looking for or
Is it engulfed in frost?
Who can the man look up too?
All who need help seek him
No help for he, the helper
His destiny appears grim


Instigate all of our thoughts
Teach us all that you have taught
Obsession of you supplies
Is all we see


Now he is the one
Standing up against it
Brutal terrain but its not hopeless
Fear hot as the sun
Tired of it all
But he can’t to escape the fall
Go to him, know who’s grim destiny festers away
He will protect with the warmth of an ice’s decay


I cant
Take it anymore, we can’t watch him fall, he’s the beacon of peace
We’ve tried
Going on our own, break from what is known, we are fearing release
Don’t stop
Separating now, disbelief will shroud, the tears the old man hides


But he is the one
Standing up
Its not hopeless
Fear hot as the sun
Tired of it all
Cant escape the fall


Go to him know who's grim destiny festers away
He will protect with the warmth of an icy decay
Now he is the one
Standing up against it
Brutal terrain but its not hopeless
Fear hot as the sun
Tired of it all
But he can’t to escape the fall
Go to him, know who’s grim destiny festers away
He will protect with the warmth of an ice’s decay
Track Name: Shooting Down Satellites
Contort the orbit
To change your mind
Why ignore it
If they must ignite

Break down barriers
Fire away
It doesn't matter now
Or that's what you say


Shooting down satellites
To better us all
Watch as they crumble
And we grow tall

We can not expect to stay the same
Change is the way to stay sane


On the fringe of existence
This is your judgment call
Should we burn it to ash,
Leave it to fall?

Keep your wits about you
Don't let them get thebest
Fight back against it
We never expected less


I cannot
Follow this
Anymore

This is
All I
Can see

I cannot
Do better


Shooting down satellites
To better us all
Watch as they crumble
And we grow tall

We can not expect to stay the same
Change is the way to stay sane


To stay sane I must
Change my ways
Forget the day
Forget my name

To stay sane I must
Contort all logic
Take my memories
Forget I thought it


I am not the one who wanted
This to turn into a destructive

Rhythm that will alter my mind
Risking it all just to say I'm fine
(I am the one who wanted
this to be something more)

This is not ideal it's shattering
All I know, left me exasperating
(I am not content with this anymore)

I cannot live like this now I'm
shaking and breaking to turn this around
(Shoot them down, to change your life)
(Stopping them to save my life)

Shooting down satellites to stop my fall

Watch as they crumble and I grow tall


Shooting down satellites
To better us all
Watch as they crumble
And we grow tall

We can't expect to stay the same
Change is the way
To stay sane
Track Name: An Infinite Loop
This is where the wandering leads us
Through the winding road
Is it our minds that are calloused?
Or is it our souls?

Explain what makes this pointless
'Cause I have been mystified
By the man who makes it worthy
To carry on with our stride

Don't repeat
Don't repeat
Don't repeat
Or else we can't move on


We all have failed
To understand our ways
Moments linger
Throughout the rest of our days
Slowly our chances drip from the tips of the cups of our lives
Spilling what is divine


It goes on and on
Forever we won't understand
But when time goes on
The moments will slip through our hands

Time's not done
Time's not done


As days repeat
The hands of the clock create a
Vortex of fate
And as everyone knows its
Consuming, constricting, controlling, conflicting
Yet nobody tries to stop time
It makes a linear motion of lies.


It goes on and on
Forever we won't understand
But when time goes on
The moments will slip through our hands

Time's not done
Time's not done


Your teardrop gleams
You are the picture between my dreams
Cascading softly
Into perception
Becoming apart of my infinite collection

While time has strayed
You were the dawn and the dusk of my day
Orbiting calmly
Peaceful disguise
You are my avoidable demise


Nothing we've seen
From the gathering clouds suggests
That we should frown
At the gathering crowds as they
Point and they stare
Searching for a sign
Too see beauty


Your teardrop gleams
You are the picture between my dreams
Cascading softly
Into perception
Becoming apart of my infinite collection

While time has strayed
You were the dawn and the dusk of my day
Orbiting calmly
Peaceful disguise
You are my avoidable demise


While time has strayed
You were the dawn and the dusk of my day
Orbiting calmly
Peaceful disguise
You are my avoidable demise
