Track Name: Seven Ages
Look at me. Speak to me. Tell me something real.
This faceless wave of dialogue is losing it's appeal.
You make a noise, it resonates but doesn't reach it's mark.
Humanity we emulate begins to fall apart.

You would be naive to think that what you think means anything.
When all you do and all you say amounts to nothing at all.

Offer up our sentiment with artificial heart.
The world around us is the stage, content to play the part.

Seven Ages.

You would be naive to think that what you think means anything.
When all you do and all you say amounts to nothing at all.

I've got better things to do than read about your point of view.
When all you say and all you do amounts to nothing at all.

We're so connected now but never been so far apart.
When everyone knows everything and no one's ever wrong.
Look to a time when things were better.
You could change a life or save the world.

You would be naive to think that what you think means anything.
When all you do and all you say amounts to nothing at all.

I've got better things to do than read about your point of view.
When all you say and all you do amounts to nothing at all.
Track Name: Meteor
looking to London from 42nd street
the sound of the ocean, the cure
initial shock that knocks me off my feet
this wave of emotion is pure

it hits you like a meteor, crashing down to the earth
you never really know for sure where to go

actions leave a trail and consequences fall
reaction to the sun the same for everyone
mercy will prevail to find redemption
it cannot be undone

it hits you like a meteor, crashing down to the earth
you never really know for sure where to go
Track Name: One of Us
Here is someone new. He doesn't look like us.
An archetype of long ago.

His plating's soft and warm. His wires drip red oil.
He's delicate and beautiful.

We don't want him here. He's come to steal our jobs.
He's human. Human.
His extinction was justified.

He's not one of us.
He's different.

Their kind went out of style back in 2044.
Extinguishing all traces of the past that lie before.

Why would they do this to them?

Capable of love and war a creature of extremes.
Their highest aspirations couldn't satisfy their dreams.

How could they do this to them?

Now we have a specimen to study and adore.
Let's cut him up in tiny bits, examine him some more.

Cut him up good.

He's not one of us.
He's different than us.
He's not one of us.
He's different than us.

Radiation burns the skin.
Separation, life from limb.

Why would we do this to them?

We can give or take away.
Just like they did everyday.

How could they do this to them?

He was someone new.
Track Name: Dark Side of the Girl
Sunday morning, the atmosphere was different.
He was gone, she could see it in his eyes.
Left alone, it wouldn't be the first time.
By Sunday evening she knew it was goodbye.

It's nothing new. It's hauntingly familiar.
We've heard this story a million times before.
She's the victim. He's the rotten apple.
She obsesses. He can't take it anymore.

And then the feeling comes.
It makes her numb.
Makes it easy to get along.

And soon the darkness finds
her fragile mind.
She tries in vain to leave it all behind.

There's a deeper meaning to the world.
There's a darker side of the girl.

Sunday morning, she was acting rather distant.
That familiar glaze had seeped into her eyes.
Run away, it wouldn't be the last time.
By Sunday evening he knew it was goodbye.

And then the feeling comes.
It makes her numb.
Makes it easy to get it wrong.

And soon the darkness finds
her shattered mind.
Maybe this time she'll leave it all behind.

There's a deeper meaning to the world.
There's a darker side of the girl.

And she feels it's deeper than her
and she wakes alone.

She knows that life is bigger than her
and she wakes alone.
