Track Name: Descending Dunes
Drifting along, face this plain
Feeling stoned, and it's just another day
Visions flash, must be true...
The answer waits beyond the dunes.

Storm enclosed, light erodes
Impending doom, descend the dunes.

Tower standing in the distance gleams
Feel the roses start to sing
The chimes of time skip a beat
Could just be this relentless heat
Will this place never end
Seems I've forgotten your face, my friend
The only thing left to do is buckle down descend the dunes.

Resting under a blinding sun
Boil breaks there's another one
Water's running scarsely thin
But still I can't escape this grin
Will this place ever end
Seems I've forgotten your face, my friend
The only thing left to do is buckle down descend the dunes.
Track Name: Psychic Powers
Psychic powers in the future
The evolution of mankind
Kept a secret by the government
To conceal the evils they find.

Once awakened in the wrong hands
Mind too young to understand
Starts to turn on his fellow man
Cheats death, god complex.

"We're all in trouble," the oracle said to them
Power of god in one man's hand
His hate inside clouds his mind
Bringing destruction.

This is a new being, unlike anything we've seen
Change the future, the only possibility
He left the chain of his brain
Became the next step.
Track Name: No More Barricades
Taking a stroll through the mind of man
Looking for something to redeem them
I find it's a lie nothing left inside
And as I start to cry a voice comes to me:

Given a chance, no more romance
Ran out of mine, there's no use in tryin'
Give me a reason, sick of this treason
Blocked off conscience seems to give it way
The pride of their heart, where should we start
As time ticks away, no more barricades
Now that I see what's in thee
How can it not be guilty?

Lire fighter
Can't you see that we are buried
Hide out, find out
Still a way, not too late
Fly and die
And take a look into a book
How come you don't run?
Retaliate and there's just more pain.
Track Name: Suspicious Bag of Lollipops
Who's to say what's the right way
Gonna find my namaste
Suspicious bag of lollipops
Time will glow and time will stop
Well I can't just look away
World is melting before my face
Falling far from reality
Clouds are speakin' to me.

There is hunger inside
A figurative hole we hide
Some fill with material things
Try to live life as kings
Well I can't stand it
Pulls me deeper in.

Well I'm gonna try
To tap into the third eye
Break from reality
Well I'm gonna try
Get in touch with an inner side
Finally realized.
