Track Name: Clouds
Susan Catherine:
Get out from under these clouds before it's too late
Remember what it is that is burning to hold them and all of this up in the sky
Our fall is long and will last a lifetime

[I care only about the blue skies beyond]
I know I'll get there

Our shadows are eaten by the blackness above
Do you think that your footsteps will ever be seen?

I know that they will

I will break through into clear skies
Track Name: Rust and ruin
Broken in twain are the bonds that bound us to
all that which makes us true
Our sight is obscured by the effigies we have built
O'er the fount that we did spring from

Ever faster we run in pursuit of a golden age
That does not lie on this course
This progress we make only takes us farther along
the path that leads to the edge

Rust and ruin awaits

My mind's eye can see our temples crumbled to dust
As our march comes to a halt
The wilderness we have fought so long and hard
will engulf them all in the end

That we may again forge the bonds that did hold us
to the earth that we trod upon
And if the cycle restarts I hope our progress will only be
our means and not our end
Track Name: Closer
Soft are the curves that Meadows drew
Soft are the bell's tolls as it tolls for you

Heavy the rain fall, more so than before
Heavy is my heart when I think on this

Great the confusion is among all and one
Great thus the culling beyond the edge
Track Name: The search
I search for a silver lining that would guide me to where these clouds open unto clear skies
I'd rather close my ears to your words but they echo loudly as the heavens darken above

Will I ever find a way from this falling skyline threatening to crush me
A glint of sunlight there somewhere farther ahead of me holds a promise of some fresh air
I fear that this search is beginning far too late but I still have hope for us
Our ingenuity may still see us through to the blue skies beyond these dark clouds above

Susan Catherine:
The sun rays of his dreams have faded away
But his youthful ambition does not let him see the truth

Ikaros, Ikaros, I know you've heard my words
But I see they have not been understood
Track Name: Spilt in vain
Soon it will all be gone
Will its like be seen again?
I can already hear
its echoes fade away

Our blood, sweat and tears
Were they spilt in vain?

The sands in the hourglass
Are draining ever down
Full circle we now have come
Ouroboros eaten alive

Our blood sweat and tears
Were they spilt in vain
[Our blood spilt in vain]
