Track Name: Stuck In Stasis
I'm frozen in time
With no way to thaw
This mask reveals what I cannot recall
Comatose
In a cocoon of ice
I'm laying dormant in this frigid device
Unable to wake
And unable to breathe
Now I can't be released
Isolated
Locked In machine
I cannot escape, so leave me in this dream

I'm stuck in stasis
But I'm still here with you
Look towards the sky
As years go by, my dear
You'll feel it to be true
I'm stuck in stasis,
But I can't face the truth
And though I try
If I still die in here
I'll only have my youth

The world goes by
In inaudible sound
Forgotten and lost;
I'm cryogenically bound
Resonation
Feeding on bass;
I'm conscious
Yet, I cannot make out your face
Unable to live
And unable to die
Unable to smile
And unable to cry
So now I wait
Hoping to find
A viable reason to escape my mind

I'm stuck in stasis
But I'm still here with you
Look towards the sky
As years go by, my dear
You'll feel it to be true
I'm stuck in stasis,
But I can't face the truth
And though I try
If I still die in here
I'll only have my youth
Track Name: Predetermined
Sometimes we hate our own reflection
Situations break us down
Lost with no sense of direction
Sinking fast, prepared to drown
Still we rise and face the day
We keep distorted thoughts at bay
And though we want to just surrender,
There is something we convey:

Nothing in life is predetermined
But our times retreating
We're waves that crash along the shore
But the tides receding
Disrupt the barriers of consciousness to see
That life was never predetermined
We control our destiny

Sometimes we find ourselves in darkness
Light escapes from every rift
Cold and blinded by emotion
As the lifeboats sale adrift
Still we navigate the way
No matter what our demons say
Let Polaris guide you home;
Just remember come what may:

Nothing in life is predetermined
But our times retreating
We're waves that crash along the shore
But the tides receding
Disrupt the barriers of consciousness to see
That life was never predetermined
We control our destiny
Track Name: Fallen One
You fell the victim to my darkness
You played the part I knew you would
You tried to find a way to save me from myself
I preyed on you, because I could
Now:

I'm looking towards the sky for nothing
Silence echoes in my mind
I cannot face my own salvation
But I'm glad you're doing fine
I just wanted to apologize
For everything I've done
I wasn't born forsaken,
But I'm still a fallen one

I am the one to blame for your mistrust
A monster that you called a friend
So many questions left unasked between us
That I will answer for in the end

I'm looking towards the sky for nothing
Silence echoes in my mind
I cannot face my own salvation
But I'm glad you're doing fine
I just wanted to apologize
For everything I've done
I wasn't born forsaken,
But I'm still a fallen one
