Track Name: Edge
See the cracks in the glass, unbroken
With half a mind of sense, unspoken

Into abyss we'll stare, hope for a gaze or glare
Right at the edge of hope is where we're standing
From distance hear them shout, shout out our names so loud
Right at the edge of hope, we'll either rise or fall

It calls through the halls of a broken heart
While silently waiting to fall apart

Mind the cracks in our heads, unheard of
With half a mind of mad (choir: but we are still alive)

Into abyss we'll stare, hope for a gaze or glare
Right at the edge of hope is where we're standing
From distance hear them shout, shout out our names so loud
Right at the edge of hope we'll either rise or fall

It calls through the halls of a broken heart
While silently waiting to fall apart
With all of our heart, we came so far
Left there in the dark is a fire that sparks
Track Name: Hope
Blinded by the light of fire
Thinking this might be the answer
Screaming, tearing, leaving shelter
Knowing this might lead to all we fear

Give us conclusion
in the way we can
deal with illusion
of undying hope

too far away
to find a way
and all our means
may fail today

Strength in arms but weak with numbers,
Walking through the field of crossing fires

Give us conclusion
in the way we can
deal with illusion
of undying hope

too far away
to find a way
and all our means
may fail today

for all we know
we're done today

we'll leave this and take rest today
Track Name: Wings
"Through the darkness, bring us the light
to any chaos, we may find." (Hindi)

Rise now,
Smell the scent of certainty
Or the sense of liberty

Either way, this strife is over

Rise again,
With the eyes of clarity
But the ears of sanity

Tell the world, this strife is over

We have wings and we should fly
To the boundaries of the sky


Airily,
We can sort out chaos now
May our hearts be rested now

My regards to all those lost friends

Then again,
We can be at peace again
We can be with hope again

That this darkness now is over

We have wings and we should fly
Up to the boundaries of the sky


Following spirit gave us understanding
In light of a darkness which lies far behind

We have wings and we should fly
To the boundaries of the sky
Beyond the boundaries of our minds
Track Name: Outpost
Every night we go to sleep we lay to rest all that we are
Every morning born anew, where old shells become part of new

Blight this,
Rebuild us
Put heart into bold expressions

Facelessly speaking
The deaf
They will understand it


Why do we let go of art that nurtures us, refines our hearts
Why can't we let go of love that kills us, runs us to the ground

Blight this,
Rebuild us
Put heart into bold expressions

Mindlessly painting
The blind
They will understand it
