Track Name: Grounded
Held and bound
Feet on ground
I hear you call me
To the sound
Of higher life
A new beginning
A separate form of
Greater being

A host of moral size
And humanity
A reminder of the most
Embodied life in me
We don't remember
The hand that holds you
The one that held you
High above the ground

How do we remember
What it's like to be alive?
What's reminding us?
What's reminding us right now?
Embodied
Embodied deep in me
Embodied deep in you
It's the hand that holds you
High above the ground
Track Name: Winter
You are laid down
To be, stolen
In mind of time
You will hold it

The grasp of winter holding me down
Sense seems to fade away
I could not find it

Outside and tired
You will hide it
So why did you take me
Inside your floral vine

You would (you see)
Unspoken (in me)
Holding (onto)
Hoping (for you)

The grasp of winter holding me down
Sense seems to slip away
I could not find it
Track Name: Eterna
Standing tall, amongst archaic
Not seen by those, undeserving
The sacrifices must be made
To keep the holy happy

This tree of Knowledge
The Tree of Life
Bathe in the water
And relive you past

Being thrown into open skies
The fear and awe
But an underlying sense of wondering
Consumes my every thought

Sailing, slowly, the astral glade
Seeking unknown
For the dying star
With xibalba life from death
Will bloom again
Track Name: Event Horizon
Distorted by time
Obscured by perceptive
The duality of being

Existential and sublime

Seeking context
From ancient text
Of the universal realm
And the current that connects us

The home of thought
The branches of contingency
Accessed by pineal eye
My essence no longer trapped

I have achieved my end
At last from within
All paths laid out
Passing by this presented future

Seeking context
From ancient text
Of the universal realm
And the current that connects us

Trapped in time
No way to go
All paths laid out
Track Name: Eterna Part II
(Instrumental)
Track Name: In White
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Release
Once more, again and again
You will tell me what you meant
You will lie and look in my eyes
Tell me of the whiteness of your eyes

You know hard ends start again
You know what you meant to have meant
You know you lie, you lie
You know your pretend intentions show

Release, breathe
Only when your pain subsides
Release, slowly breathe
Only when your pain subsides

What you had was in your hands
Didn't you mean what you meant
Couldn't you hear what you are to me
Couldn't you care to care for me

Release, breathe
Only when your pain subsides
Release, slowly breathe
Only when your pain subsides
Track Name: Metanoia
What I know is what I hold true
What I believe I justified
I left to see the world unfiltered
But what I saw I did not believe

I became the sun but then I died
My life, my body, but not my mind
The heavens peeled and the sky grew stale
I was chosen but I failed

Stripped of flesh and stripped of sight
I don't understand but I don't mind
Separating life and matter
A living souvenir, a life in pattern

What I know I justify
I became the but then I died
The heavens peeled and the world grew stale
I was chosen but I failed

But I failed...
Track Name: Cistern
Detached from any sense of reason
Reality does not match what I see
The consonance bereft in me
Runs back and forth and in-between
Disequilibrium manifesting in me

Pulling the balance of my temple
Like a black hole collapsing from the core
Beating this darkness in my head

Equilibrium collapses in me
This dark void filled with uncertainty
