Track Name: Signs
My mind was sifting
Through the sands of history
When the desert swallowed everything
Revealing a Sphinx in my dream
She was singing a melody called Encke
Like a warning of something...

We gaze at the same stars
For different signs
But the answers were never out there
They were inside the whole time

On common earth no common eye
Is set with a lens to better the soul
But its vital, if we'll survive
So you question why so many stars are falling lately?
But you're still pleading with the sky for idol fame

We gaze at the same stars
For different signs
The answers were never out there
They were inside the whole time

They say: 'if you bring forth what is in you,
then what you draw out will save you...'

We gaze at the same stars
For different signs
The answers were never out there
They were inside the whole time
Track Name: In Stone
In the darkest corner of the temple,
theres a pattern cut into the rock
It's a lesson I know I've been avoiding
That I may rise up
From death before I fall

The past becomes an echo
Time, a corridor
I'm just trying to hear the reflections
Singing from the wall

All we know we will carve in stone
For all we know we're just shadows
Dancing on the wall
So if another age seek to find out
Then a younger age can find out
Will another age seek to find out?

Can I set an alarm with a message
That'll wake in time for the future
Or sleep through centuries of dynasties,
Tragedies and floods
The past becomes an echo on the wall

When I try reading the lines
Read in the lines
Am I a shadow of something more?
When I try reading the lines
Read in the lines
I'm a shadow of them I’m sure

All we know we will carve in stone
For all we know we're just shadows
Dancing on the wall
All we are we will carve in stone
Track Name: Gravity Calling
Feathers for the win
You flew out of this 'prison town'
You said you'd never come back again
Until you'd conquered all the sky,
Or looked down on all the world
With dizzying pride

Listen to the warning in the wind
The reapers hand is not confined to land or status
So the higher you soar, to the roar of your ego
A greater force is reaching from below
It's the sound of gravity calling
The sound of gravity calling

I've seen so many feathers in the sea before
and I know you need something to live for,
Something to strive for
I don't want to drag you down,
I just know you need to be grounded

Finally high enough? Feel yourself burning up
Is this the heat you've been aiming for?
Feel your wings melting of

Dreaming of descending, you are falling, spinning back to earth
But the damage is in the distance
You insist to exist apart from us
Icarus, learn to land once in a while
You're living like a star
I've seen so many falling and burning lately
I know theres more to you than just wings
Listen now, or the last thing you will hear
Is the sound of gravity calling
The sound of gravity calling
Track Name: No Evil
Humanitarian love-bombs cut deep
A village bleeds out into the sea
A girl survives, without a family
Tiny dirty hands, just five years old
Receives a simple toy,
Softest thing she's ever held
up to her face,
I crumble

(We wanna see no evil)
So I shut my eyes and carry on
(We all wanna hear no evil)
So I block my ears and carry on
(We don't want to swallow evil)
Well, I shut my mouth and carry on
(Sit around and wait for time to yell)
What side of history I'm on
What side of history I'm on

Of all the triggers of empathy
Is it her innocence I see within me?
Or is it that I'm a part of this machine
Somehow contributing to all of this…

Have you heard of that line that runs through every heart?
Its that shadow of the Gulag, the Auschwitz prison guard
Do you feel no evil? Do you fear no evil?

One day I'll have to explain
How we let the villains run the show
As the grandkids ask the question
Why we caged up those
Who had nowhere else to go...

Well I covered my eyes and carried on
I blocked my ears and carried on
Will I shut my mouth and carry on?
Just to carry on?
Track Name: Age of Outrage
Is this what you wanted?
I float in my shame
& I know I’ll never untangle my heavy name

I'm just trying to get my head above water
I only wanna get my head above water
In this tidal wave of outrage 
This is the age of outrage - It’s all the rage
This is the age of outrage

So have you heard about that vicious bird?
Scoop you up, drop you deep into that social sea
You can drown yourself with eleven words
While the strawmen hold you underneath

I'm just trying to get my head above water
I only wanna get my head above water
In this tidal wave of outrage 
This is the age of outrage - It’s all the rage
This is the age of outrage

It’s the era triggered dancing thumbs are waiting
For the chance to be offended 
This is the time maladroit opinions propagate
From ripples into tempests
They don’t care if you apologise
Just want to see you destroyed

I'm just trying to get my head above water
I only wanna get my head above water
In this tidal wave of outrage
This is the age of outrage
This is the age
Track Name: Lie Detector
That little twitch in your eye
The way you look left, then to the right
Scattered holes in all your story lines, and I
Really should have really seen the signs

Who's gonna test you every day?
I'm not a lie detector
Who's gonna test the things you do?
I'm not a lie detector for you

That interrogating light you used to shine on me
Has twisted 'round now and blazes back at you
So go and preach all of your alibis,
Entangle somebody new in your alternative truths
I'm cutting you loose

Who's gonna test you every day?
I'm not a lie detector
Who's gonna test the things you do?
I'm not a lie detector for you

I'm not about to waste one more minute of my life
I'm not going to waste one more second of my life
On your alibi

Who's gonna test you every day?
I'm not a lie detector
Who's gonna test the things you do?
I'm not a lie, a lie, a liar,
Liar
