Track Name: The Grand Delusion
("Captain's log:
Captain Vadis Day 2 of the mission. We've reached and stabilized at a safe distance from Earth to prevent re entry of the pods once ejected.... *sigh* I wanna make it very clear that I do not agree with nor condone the actions decided upon by the council; These are people !, Regardless of their mental stability.....Yet the council fears them otherwise I wouldn't be here, about to jettison these human beings into the cold void.......To their certain Doom")

Fragments of time swirling and twisting, sublime ramparts of existing scenes
Played out before my eyes then torn from my sight shrieking screams,
illuminating thoughts and dreams

As reality peels away
I no longer know this place or date
Entering a world lost to humanity
Dwelling in my own absurdity.

Listen to my insanity
Grand delusions of actuality
Let me place this fear in you
So you feel the pain I go through

Haunted every minute not knowing if I'm alive, inescapable despair and pleasure through cataclysmic fears

Haunted every minute not knowing if I'm alive, inescapable despair and pleasure through cataclysmic fears

Here I experience love and hate
Each door I open changes my fate
Emotionally distraught ending ties with your lot.
Envying your existence.
Lost in my partitions.

Fantastic visions, terrifying aural transmissions
A voice that soothes my wounds,
Surging through me, it cracks and booms
Destroying myself on every plane
As I eat my own shame
Track Name: Ghostly Emanation
Reflections from this shuttle window
that shows me inside
I have felt for so long
The emptiness of this grey life
Eating away at my soul
Plaguing all hope
No survival destination zero.
Can I accept this fate
The effects of my hate
A doomed trip
Wandering in and out of sleep
Strangeness getting steep
Sinking into an ever darkening
Hole I await
My own arrival below....

Here I am to watch me die
Emanating from this shell I leave behind
The ghost I am, the human I was
Lives no more
Shall I survive or die !

Drifting through this infinite dark ocean of stars
Dead weight I see myself yet can't awake my body
Deep dread filling a dead heart and pulse I hide ?!
Sleep no more ...death take me away fear burns me inside

Visions growing strong swirling black
Dimensions beyond sight and sound
Filling me with life unbound I can't come back
I've passed a veil
An energy a blessing a power enormously rife, sickening agenda universally haunting and alive

Here I am to watch me die
Emanating from this shell I leave behind
The ghost I am, the human I was
Lives no more
Shall I survive or die !

Drifting through this infinite dark ocean of stars
Dead weight I see myself yet can't awake my body
Deep dread filling a dead heart and pulse I hide ?!
Sleep no more ...death take me away fear burns me inside
Track Name: This Black Expanse
In a void no life no light blinded ....clarity in hindsight

Pulled in by this abyss.

Feeling the darkness.

(A) spirit longing, so far from home
Contradiction howl as I spin amongst particles of everything

Split myself transformed
Fearing an end

Darkness surrounds me! (Vostry)

Seeing all through the vision of my mind (Hall)

Anger embodies Me! (Vostry)

Awaking a rage of passion burning for life (Hall)

Death devours me ! (Vostry)

Numb to emotion, escaping light (Hall)

Swallowed by Oblivion! (Vostry)

Turned inside out my world collides with reality (Hall)

Can you feel the sinking into this Black Expanse ?
Worming its way inside warping my mind to advance
Blinding stars absorbing my soul
I can now let go of this meager existence/resistance

Emptiness of this shell
An imagined physical pain
Frozen universal spell

Cosmic rays filling all thoughts
A poisonous sickening plot
Hidden in a cold womb
Awaiting my bloom/doom

Can you feel the sinking into this Black Expanse ?l
Worming its way inside warping my mind to advance
Blinding stars absorbing my soul
I can now let go of this meager resistance
Breathless I renounce my whole,
Dark nebulas clouding this existence/resistance
Falling into a contorted form
Living misshapen swarm

Fluttering
Aching
Trembling
Attempting a breath I choke

Scarce emotions twitching me
Emerging now
Having opened the gate
Pandorum is my fate.
