[THE MIND AWAITS]

Remind me why these eyes are mine
The lies I've seen
The past that will remain
You know the past will stay the same
An empty world that's lost its love
The passion's gone, yet the sorrow still remains
Yet the sorrow still remains

You need some time now to find your way
To find an answer, the mind awaits

You know the past will stay the same,
and yet the sorrow still remains
Misunderstand what I'm going through to find
Deep inside, the reasons that I try
I will fly through the end of time
I will fight to answer all the questions of the mind
Mystery of the soul

I need some time now to find my way
To find an answer, the mind awaits

[TO WALK AWAY]

Now that my time has come to walk away
from this empty lie I've lived
Forced to take the path that leads astray
Nothing left to leave behind
The world's at my fingertips
Don't you fear, 'cause we're one

Will they remember me?
Will my name be carved in stone?
You'll find out soon why you are here
and what you're meant to be
You'll find the key, it lies within

Where do I start, where do I begin?
I must unleash the spirit within
I get a feeling that tells me
someone awaits across the sea
All is disintegrating as I look into the sun

Will they remember me?
Will my name be carved in stone?
You'll find out soon why you are here
and what you're meant to be
You'll find the key, it lies within
I've arrived

"Words are inert. They're just symbols. They're dead, you know?
And so much of our experience is intangible.
So much of what we perceive cannot be expressed. It's unspeakable.
And yet, you know, when we communicate with one another,
and we feel that we've connected, and we think that we're understood,
I think we have a feeling of almost spiritual communion.
And that feeling might be transient, but I think it's what we live for."

[NEW HORIZONS]

Finally, I feel at ease
My mind was wearing thin
The wind whispers around me
in this unfamiliar land I'm in
Walking by the water
The scent of summer breeze
I walk alone, but not alone
This presence comforts me
A man stands in the shadows
A stranger with an honest face
His gaze ignites a fire
and I start to understand
He shares his thoughts and wisdom
He knows so much about my life
I need to open up my mind
and broaden my horizons

I need to go away
to a place where I can change my way
Spiritual sanctuary
Meditational peace and salvation
Take me away - Take me home

[CARVED IN STONE]

Now that I've arrived in this land
The people, they greet me with welcoming arms
Footprints are left in the sand
After the tide, they'll still know who I am (I am)
Within these walls, I learn who I am
Calm through my body, the mind I command (command)
Strengthen my soul day by day
The key to enlightenment not far away
Away - so far away

"The main character is what I call 'the mind.'
Its mastery, its capacity to represent.
Throughout history, attempts have been made
to contain those experiences which happen
at the end of the limit where the mind is vulnerable.
But I think we are in a very significant moment in history.
Those moments, those what you might call
liminal, limit, frontier, edge zone experiences,
are actually now becoming the norm.
These multiplicities and distinctions and differences
that have given great difficulty to the old mind
are actually through entering into their very essence,
tasting and feeling their uniqueness.
One might make a breakthrough
to that common something that holds them together.
And so the main character is,
to this new mind, greater, greater mind.
A mind that yet is to be.
Yes, it's empty - with such fullness that the great moment,
the great life of the universe, is pulsating in it."

Divine - The wisdom that you wish you know
Your arrogance won't let you go
Your consciousness needs time to grow
The lies you say won't make it so
Goodbye - No matter what you preach to me
Nothing will change my destiny
A greater mind for all to see
I cast away all my misery

Don't try to make your way all alone
You'll find it harder on your own
Your name has not been carved in stone
Look further and step off your throne
The mind - This journey's come to an end for me
My dreams have become reality
I've captured all that ran from me
Entity's reached divinity

[IN THE SHADOW OF MY MIND - Instrumental]

[DOWNFALL]

Engulfed in darkness, swallowed by my pain
Stumbling through emptiness and chain
I look to the sky and realized I've failed
I feel like giving up on myself

My mind is clear now, I need to turn away
The answer incomplete, the question obsolete
I lower my head and submit to the truth
The entity returns
His presence comforts me

You need to change your ways
You forgot all that you've learned, my friend
Concentrate, learn from your mistakes
Don't give up, try again
You haven't met the end
Take my hand, reach further for the answer

"The quest is to be liberated from the negative.
And once having said yes to the instant, the affirmation is contagious.
It bursts into a chain of affirmations that knows no limit.
To say yes to one instant is to say yes to all of existence."

[ASCENSION]

I have returned
Questions of the mind - Mystery of the soul
They have been answered

Now that I've emerged, I must admit I learned a lot
The ancient winds of wisdom carried me
Severed from the world, I was alone or so I thought
I've finally found the strength to spread my wings

Time, it seems so soon
Our senses back in tune
Universe (Universe), awaken light in you

You would not believe what I have seen throughout the years
The amnesty and sympathy within
I've conquered all my pain and walked along beside my fears
Repent once and for all for all my sins

Remind me why these eyes are mine
The sky is grey, the colours drained

Time, it seems so soon
Our senses back in tune
The universe, awaken light in you

So comfortable at home
My feet back on the ground
My mind is put at ease
Serenity is found

[A NEW MIND FOR A NEW WORLD]

So nice to look into your eyes again
(It's been so long, my love)
Been gone for what it seems like a moment of infinity
You and I were meant to touch the sky
We must remain without each other
We must remain alone 'cause all is gone, all is lost
(Don't leave me)

Mother, you were the one who gave birth to my dreams
Father, you taught me all that I know and I do
And now your name is carved in stone
and finally you've been set free
Goodbye

Expose a new mind for a new world
Smother the flame of our greed
Embracing all that fate has brought to me
Accepting death
The voices within my consciousness
have lit up a path to a mind at ease
All that I've learnt and all I've become
was for humanity to unite as one

We unite and now we see we've been misled throughout the years
We've drifted through the days and now we've found our way
Through his sacrifice, he is a martyr for us all
A brighter future lies ahead, and now I will transcend
