Track Name: Journey
Within every journey lies discovery and spiritual growth; yet, there is so much we will never understand or come to discover for that matter. All the same, we go through our pains and gains as we can only grow with the hardship of “blood, sweat, and tears.”
But we all know it’s damn hard to stand tall, and sometimes we fall down. And think that can’t get up.

Is this the right way to do it?
Leading me to nothing
Leaving me with nothing else
That could make this life worthwhile

Face to face with the world
You say there’s still so much to learn
I’ll carry on, but I don’t know...

So, where should I go now?
You keep on telling me
I don’t know what is freedom
It’s something that I have never felt
I have to ask you
What’s your intention?

[Solos: V.H. Targino / D. Rufino]
Track Name: Refugee
Run and run and run before I contaminate myself.

No. Too late.
Track Name: Voices of Me
Doubts feeding my head with despair
Voices unheard, starting to appear
Who am I now? Who is inside?
It fills me with fear

Hold your mouth, bite your tongue
It should have passed by now
Why is it taking so long?

Realize you’re a threat to yourself
A living danger of death
Cry it out, don’t keep it inside
It may hurt your sanity and corrupt your mind

Shut your mouth, I don’t know you
Get out of my head!
I cried and I cried
But the worse of it all was realizing that
I was talking to myself

Static fear drains my strength
Come back, make it disappear

Once silent voices of me started to talk
I lost the control of reality

[Solos: V.H. Targino / both]

EGO!
Track Name: Dispersed
Your consciousness is a dark place
Full of hate and disgrace
You try to disguise
But you can never realize

The fight against yourselves
Yes, you can never know
That life evolves
Life is a burden

Bringing you a realm of pain
And there isn’t anymore to gain

Hear the whispers of agony
She disturbs, she dwells in your mind
Feel the weight
Perpetuate your soul

Look at the calm sky
Within the universe
You are alone, displaced and dispersed
So you ask what’s the meaning of it all
No one hear your desolute fall
Silence fills the hearth of your mind
There’s only you
Track Name: Broken Home
“Look at the madness that goes on, you can’t prove anything that happened yesterday. Now is the only thing that’s real. You can try to prove that Columbus sailed on an ocean, but it’s not the same ocean; it’s a different ocean, it’s a different world. Every day, every reality is a new reality. Every new reality is a new horizon; a brand new experience of living. I got a note last night from a friend of mine; he rise in this note that he’s afraid of what he might have to do in order to save his reality, as I saved mine. You can’t prove anything! There’s nothing to prove. Every man judges himself. He knows what he is; you know what you are as I know what I am. We all know what we are. Nobody can stand in judgment. They can play like they’re standing in judgment. They can play like they stand in judgment and take you off and control the masses with your human body. And they can lock you up in penitentiary and cages and put you on crosses as they did in the past; but it doesn’t amount to anything. What they’re doing is: they’re only persecuting a reflection of themselves.”

[Charles Milles Manson]
Track Name: A Dead Resource
Honesty is a dead resource
And trust: it can no longer be
I can’t recall the first time
I saw your hypocrisy

It became a pitiful display of the living
A shameful parade
You bastards, you liars
Our lives are not a game

I despise you all
I can’t stand the thought of you

Despite of all the words once said, you are not what you claim to be
You make believe what you live is true, but the truth is away from your fantasy
Your morality is but a lie; your causes can no longer justify you
And once and for all I will never submit myself to you again

Live a play, live a game
Live a lie, justify
It’s for a greater reason

All you say, all you do
All you cry, all this time
And yet this treason

Fraternized, baptized
Anesthetized, hypnotized
Immortalized

You don’t see, you can’t see
You have been all this time
Commercialized

Open your eyes- look around
You defend all this hate
All those lives you desecrate

With your words, with your say
But yet you dismay
Get out of my way!

[Solos: V.H. Targino / D. Rufino / both]
Track Name: Beyond Infinity
Questions with no answers
Perversions with no measures
Seeking for truth among lies
Feeling cold as the fire dies

The wind blows on my face
As I fall onto the ground
Will someone hold my fall?
I just want to end it all

Someone hold my hand
And get me out of this shell
Although freedom is just a bigger cell

So I look to the sky
And wish to fly away
Wish to see the end
And what's beyond infinity
Life is a burden
But I'm scared to put an end to it
‘Cause cannot understand
All these concepts of eternity

What have I been? What have I seen?
What have I done? What have I conquered for me?
Turn to the sun and hope to see light
There's only hate! There's only greed!
There's only pain! Only sorrow I see!
Turn to the sun and wish to become blind!

[Solos: V.H. Targino / D. Rufino]

Run and run and run before I contaminate myself
No! Too late! You're now one of them too!
Run and run and run, again and again, you'll never stop!
Cry, you will! For whom you are and for whom you'll never be!

Please come hold my hand
And get me out of this shell
But, know, freedom is just a bigger hell

So I look to the sky
And wish to fly away
Wish to see the end
And what's beyond infinity
Life is my burden
But I'm scared to put an end to it
Because I never will understand
All these concepts of eternity

I look to the sky and never see what’s beyond this infnity
What is eternity?
Track Name: The Ties of Ignorance
Corrupted by the masses
The ties of ignorance
Just hold your traces
Denying the self-confidence

The lessons were frustations
Nothing learned at all
Time didn't signify place
You as creator, your conduct

And all your creations fall in disgrace
The rotten systems have failed
They have fallen but you have felt
Oppressors completely forgotten

Feel the inner flame awakening again
It makes you face them
The will that once has been denied
Has never died
Those bounds no more
Feel the inner flame awakening again

All these methods they create, they destroy
They corrupt the heart, they corrupt the soul
Creation itself becomes deplored
From nothing comes something
The new turns to this most repenting
Unknown life onto its ending

[Solos: V.H. Targino / both]
Track Name: Inside
There is only me.
Track Name: Strength Within
It’s hard to take
When sometimes you feel the grief of being alone in the world
Hard to admit
That like everyone you feel loneliness and sorrow

As for me I can’t take the fact
That no one is watching over us – no!
Isolation seems like an escape
I try to understand it all

Fire is burning high in my mind
With fear, desire and hate
Consuming my thoughts
Destroying my soul
Darkening my vision to ashes

I cannot stand up to this – not anymore!

Where were you? (When I called your name)
Were you by my side? (I couldn’t feel you with me anymore)
Was I blinded by fear? (I’m afraid)

Please, help me (Watch over my steps once again)
Help me see (Make me see it’s real)
The best way to live again (Oh, need to live again)

Stay with me
Give to me
All I need
Strength within

Sorrow, loneliness
Desire, fear
Anger consuming my every thought
Oh, how can I get out of this maze?

[Solos: D. Rufino / V.H. Targino]

I still cannot take the fact
That no one is watching over us
Isolation is my escape
My try to understand this all
Track Name: Thyresis
Break thy resistance.

“They are sneaking in the county jail. Looking under the door to see if the man is there. Sneaking like little children out of town. Sneaking all around the court house. Sneaking in and out of the ventilators, sneaking everywhere. Everything is sneaky up around Sneaky Ville. Everything we have to do is… to get to the truth has to be sneaky. It seems a shame to sneak to get to the truth, to make the truth such an evil dirty old nasty thing.
[…]
The truth! They can’t stand to look at the truth in themselves, they persecute themselves. They’re butchering themselves every time they go on the freeway; they hate themselves! Look at the signs: stop! Go! Turn here! Turn there! You can’t do this! You can’t do that! You can’t! You can’t! You can’t! This is illegal, that is illegal, everything is illegal! The police used to watch over the people, now they’re watching the people. The president doesn’t represent the people; he should be on the roadside picking up his children, but he isn’t. He’s in the White House sending them off to war. And you’re saying I have to pay for this again? And again and again I’ve gotta pay for your sins. How many times have I gotta pay for your sins? I’m getting tired. I’m getting tired.”

[Charles Milles Manson]

Track Name: Still Alive
Inside of me absence of trust
Corroding all my thoughts
And I can feel it taking over me
The dust of my anger is not down yet
And I see a storm is coming fast

I have to open space for self control
Before it's too late and I don't know
What to do and don't know what will be
The fate of those who I am living with

I'd give myself to death before I'd give
Death to someone else!

Raging
On and on, it's starting to become
Too late
To turn back, please come back to me
I don't know what's happening inside my head
That's not me, the kindness in my heart:
Is it dead?

I'm alive and I will rise
From the ashes of my soul
Like a firebird, new and whole
I won't give in to my rage
I cannot stand still hand in hand with disgrace
Give up on this isolation
Before all come back to me
And become only my damnation
I don't know if it's all a lie, but all I want now
Is to come closer to the sky

[Solos: D. Rufino / V.H. Targino]

This admission is the first step to change
Before my life falls apart
I have to give away all this hate
It cannot be too late!

I have to open space for self control
Before it's too late and I don't know
What to do and don't know what will be
The fate of those who I am living with

I'm alive and I will rise
From the ashes of my soul
Like a firebird, new and whole
I won't give in to my rage
I cannot stand still hand in hand with disgrace
Give up on this isolation
Before all come back to me
And become only my damnation
I know it's not a lie!
I want to come close to the sky!
Track Name: Risen
Darkened scenes smoke and mirrors
Flows inside a river deep
Step outside existence
Leave behind those tainted memories

For a while believe
The color of the sky will never change
Caught within a spiral
Consciousness will now expand its range

I have always been by your side
When you could walk no further
I carried you in my arms

Wake up and see you are not all alone
Distrust you gave and made your own fear grow
Embraced the darkness and hid from the day
You felt so lost but was not given away

Rise from your hate, my friend!

The taste of dirt, the smell of death
So deeply scarred and wounded
Have been hunting down
All trace of hope - no more!

Embrace the love I once denied
Swallow the tears I have cried
Risen from ashes

[Solo: V.H. Targino]

Wake up and see you are not all alone
Distrust you gave and made your own fear grow
Embraced the darkness and hid from the day
You felt so lost but was not given away

Rise from your hate, my friend!
