Track Name: The Declining Crasis Of Ditrysia
Sunday Morning
It’s always Sunday morning here
I’ve been roaming for 23 years
Monotony is tearing at my skin
Lingering

Self-medication
Only doses of caffeine and some packed nicotine
Momentarily remove the film that covers my eyes
Just long enough to see that color still exists
In my shades of gray world


The Awakening I
I can’t spend more days like this
Caught up in this whirling winding cycling clone

Blame and Reason
Chemical controlled actions that can’t be suppressed
Societal influences and pressure ingrained in every movement
Stealing individual identity - The power to be oneself
Shifting us into one giant production machine


The Awakening II
I can’t spend more days like this
Caught up in this winding whirling cycling clone
It’s not only destroying me but all that’s in my path

Buoyancy I
Alter routine - Inspire - Ignite and leave this loneliness behind

The Resistance
The rain of downbeat feelings is flooding my brain
And inescapable pressures pin me down
Some days I struggle against the force
Some days I sink into compliance

Buoyancy II
Alter routine - Inspire - Ignite and leave this loneliness behind

Relapse and Rumination
Chained and sinking further down
Submerged in a dingy lagoon for time without an end
I watch as bubbles break the still water and raise to the surface
Lend a hand to me - Save me - Bring me back to life

The Awakening III
I can’t spend more days like this
Caught up in this whirling winding cycling clone
It’s not only destroying me but all that’s in my path

The Light
Like a metamorphosis shattering the chrysalis - Breaking free
Virgin eyes first glance towards the sun - Breaking free
