Track Name: Eon (Au5 Remix)
(Now I'm pushing, I'm pushing)
(Now I'm pushing through)
(I'm pushing through face)
I'm pushing through facedown
I'm pushing through facedown

I'm pacing inside this empty room
Told to wait til my life's withdrawn
Uneasy, I'm waiting here anxiously
It's a waste and I won't wait another Eon

Endless night
Long for light
My head against this tomb
And pushing through
I'm pushing through
Face-down and pushing through

Trapped and isolated
Time is dislocated
Eternity is what a moment seems
When I can't feel anything

Erasing my final memories
They won't stop til my whole life's gone
Uneasy, I wait for normality
It's a waste and I won't wait another Eon

Endless night
Long for light
My head against this tomb
And pushing through
I'm pushing through
Facedown and pushing through

Trapped and isolated
Time is dislocated
Eternity is what a moment seems
When I can't feel anything

When life is gone without a trace
And hope is lost in time's embrace
I won't wait or hesitate
'Cause I'm pushing through facedown
I won't wait or hesitate
'Cause I'm pushing through

If time's a song, I won't wait for its reprise
I am done wishing farewells and goodbyes
I won't let this place overshadow my birthright
I won't wait another Eon

Impatiently, I'm cutting through the earth in front of me
Bone on stone, blood and sweat married
Can't hear the voice that whispers fears when my heart is pounding in my ears
All I see in my mind is not what I've left behind
But all the things I've been missing in that lost Eon

Endless night
Long for light
My head against this tomb
And pushing through

Trapped and isolated
Time is dislocated
Eternity is what a moment seems
When I am lost inside this dream
When I can't speak and I can't scream
And I can't feel anything

Facedown and pushing through
Track Name: Louder Than Words (Neonlight Remix)
Actions speak louder than words do

Actions speak louder

(Shut up! Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!)

So here we go again
You're opening your mouth
Before you think
Your insincerities
Are clinging to me like the stench of your last drink
(Shut up!)

Did I really hear you say you're sorry?
Hard for me to believe
I don't get how you're buying your own story
You're piss broke emotionally

I'm watching
Listening
The volume's always the same

Actions speak louder than words do
I don't want to hear dead words from you
Actions speak louder than words do
I just want to see what you will do
Shut up!

So here it comes again
A deafening parade of duplicity
Birds falling from the sky
The air is poisoned by the breath
You waste on me
(Shut up!)

The thought of you's become so disappointing
Hard for you to believe?
You never seem to fail to change the stories
You so effortlessly breed

I'm watching
Listening
The volume's always the same

Actions speak louder than words do
I don't want to hear dead words from you
Actions speak louder than words do
I just want to see what you will do
Shut up!

(Shut up! Shut up!)

Shut up!
Actions speak louder

It's time to play again
Deception is your game
But why would you want to wear that shame?
It speaks louder than words

Shut up!

Actions speak louder than words do
I don't want to hear dead words from you
Actions speak louder than words do
I just want to see what you will do

The thought of you's become so disappointing
Actions speak louder than words do (So here we go again)
Shut up!

The volume's always the same

Actions speak louder
Shut up!

(Watching and waiting)
(Watching and waiting)

Beyond the reaches of our galaxy
Three figures watch over us all
As suns are rising on a distant planet's shores
They are watching and waiting, always orchestrating

Celestial covering of humankind
Perfectly hovering in space and time
A world that turns when they're in control
Means we're bound to stand on ground that's unshakeable!

Unshakeable!
(I am beyond) Unshakeable!
They are watching and waiting, always orchestrating

Beyond the reaches of mortality
Three figures watch over us all
As suns are setting on a distant planet's shores
They are watching and waiting, always orchestrating

Celestial covering of humankind
Perfectly hovering in space and time
A world that turns when they're in control
Means we're bound to stand on ground that's unshakeable!

Unshakeable!
(I am-m beyo--) Unshakeable!
They are watching and waiting, always orchestrating

Unshakeable!

Track Name: The Best It's Gonna Get (The Anix Remix)
Your perfect world
Has been upset
And this is the best it's gonna get
This is the best it's gonna get
And this is the best it's gonna get

Sit down and shut up I don't want to hear a word come out of your mouth
Why won't you listen to me?
(You're dreaming) Outside life's great but inside you're screaming
It's not how you thought it would be?

Are you hoping for something?
(Patiently)
Waiting for some sign?
(Mindfully)
It's time to jump in or simply get the hell out
(Finally)
I think you better make up your mind

Your perfect world
Has been upset
And this is the best it's gonna get

C'mon, get up shake it off and work your way beyond the fallout
But you still won't listen to me
(You're screaming)
Bam, the smack of the truth wakes you from your dreaming
So inconveniently

(Irony)
It sucks that it was all for nothing
(Painfully)
Your plans were redesigned
(Mournfully)
It's a shame you didn't stand for something
(Finally)
Now it's too late to make up your mind


Your life's been overrated
Hopelessly complicated
You can keep your fame and you can
Keep your money
Keep your beauty

It's a shame how long you've waited
Constantly constipated
So grab your knees and clench your teeth and
Reap your glory
Reap your glory

Your perfect world
Has been upset
And this is the best it's gonna get
Best it's gonna get

Your perfect world
Has been up...set
And this is the best it's gonna get
Track Name: The Lucky One (Fury Weekend Remix)
Payback is overdue
So much for my I. O. U.
My head is stuck underneath God's thumb
I guess that makes me the lucky one

Stupidity is a constant trend
Murphy and I have become best friends
Hooray for dreams gone before they've come
Hooray for me, I'm the lucky one

I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am, I am, I am
Hooray for me, I'm the lucky one
I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am a comedian
The joke's on me, I'm the lucky one

A sinking ship, holes in my lifeboat
I'm sorry for choking but I’ve got a wishbone stuck in my throat
I never thought this could be such fun
Hooray for me I'm the lucky one

I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am, I am, I am
Hooray for me, I'm the lucky one
I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am a comedian
The joke's on me, I'm the lucky one

I tried to push straight through the suck
Head first but now my f'ing head is stuck
I'm feeling like a stupid schmuck
Lucky for me I don't believe in luck
I tried to push straight through the suck
Head first but now my f'ing head is stuck
I'm feeling like a stupid schmuck
Lucky for me I don't believe in luck
I tried to push straight through the suck
Head first but now my f'ing head is stuck
I'm feeling like a stupid schmuck
Lucky for me I don't believe in luck
Lucky for me I don't believe in luck
I tried to push straight through the suck
Head first but now my f'ing head is stuck
I'm feeling like a stupid schmuck
Lucky for me I don't believe in luck

I don't believe in luck
I don't believe in luck

I'm feeling like a stupid schmuck
Thank God I don't believe in luck
Thank God I don't believe in luck
Thank God I don't believe in luck
Thank God I don't believe in luck

Rusted linings on my black clouds
It's raining piss, will somebody tell me what's that all about?
Wish on a blackstar until it comes
It's here for me, I'm the lucky one

I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am, I am, I am
Hooray for me, I'm the lucky one
I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am only human
I guess that makes me the lucky one

I guess that makes me the lucky one
I am, I am, I am
I guess that makes me the lucky one
I am, I am, I am
Hooray for me, I'm the lucky one
I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am only human
I guess that makes me the lucky one
I guess that makes me the lucky one
I guess that makes me the lucky one

I guess that makes you the lucky one

I guess that makes us the lucky ones
Track Name: Birthright (Biometrix Remix)
Get back up, what are you waiting for this time?
I'm over playing with this plight
But I'm still handcuffed, ball-gagged, facedown to the floor
And I'm waiting while I'm hating what I'm waiting for

It's time to take ahold of what belongs to me
It's time to walk away with no apologies
Voices in the mirror start quietly
And now they're screaming back at me!

(Don't back down!)
Holding on until my hands and mind are bleeding
(Don't back down!)
This is my birthright
(Don't back down!)
I'm so sick of feeling like I'm helpless
(Don't back down!)
This is over tonight

Don't back up, your ass is to the wall again and
Aren't you sick of wasting so much time?
And yes, it's true, you're a fool if you think you were born
To be waiting while you're hating what you're waiting for

It's time to take ahold of what belongs to me
It's time to walk away with no apologies
Voices in the mirror start quietly
And now they're screaming back at me!

(Don't back down!)
Holding on until my hands and mind are bleeding
(Don't back down!)
This is my birthright
(Don't back down!)
I'm so sick of feeling like I'm hopeless
(Don't back down!)
This is over tonight

How could have I been so earthbound
With my heart in the depths and my face in the ground?
It's time to uproot myself and move on! (I'm not gonna go without)
How could have I been making sound
When my mouth and my lungs had both fused to the ground?
It's time to uproot myself and move on!

The voices in my head have all begun to sing
(The voices in your head have all begun to sing)
And they sure as hell hope I am listening
(I sure as hell hope you are listening [echoing])

It's time to take ahold of what belongs to me
It's time to walk away with no apologies
Voices in the mirror start quietly
And now they're screaming back at me!

(Don't back down!)
Holding on until my hands and mind are bleeding
(Don't back down!)
This is my birthright
(Don't back down!)
I'm so sick of feeling like I'm lifeless
(Don't back down!)
This is over tonight
Over tonight
This is over tonight
(Tonight!)
(This ends tonight!)
Track Name: Blackstar (Sebastian Komor Remix)
Blackstar
Blackstar

You must have wished on it
Because I saw them riding in on a Blackstar
They'd rather chew than spit
And they're full of piss and vinegar

There's no way to persuade
To give up their crusade
They've come to grant the wish
You should have never made
Sing Hallelujah 'cause you can't change anything

They'll let you try
To reverse everything
Don't waste your time
Sing Hallelujah 'cause you can't change anything

(Ah-ah-ah-ah)
(Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
(Ah-ah-ah-ah)
(Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)

They move without a sound (Ah-ah-ah-ah)
And their eyes will paralyze who gaze into (Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
They'll leave you gagged and bound (Ah-ah-ah-ah)
To the whip of the wish they've granted you (Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)

There's no way to persuade
To give up their crusade
They've come to grant the wish
You should have never made
Sing Hallelujah 'cause you can't change anything

They'll let you try
To reverse everything
Don't waste your time
Sing Hallelujah 'cause you can't change anything

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Halle-lujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Halle-, Hallelujah Hallelujah-ah-ah!
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Halle-lujah (-lujah, Hallelujah-ah) (yeah yeah, yeah yeah-eah)
Hallelujah-ah-ah! Hallelujah, Hallelujah (Hallelujah, Hallelu-) Halle-, Halle-, Hallelujah Hallelujah-ah-ah-ah-ah!

Looks like they're over it
I saw them riding off on a Blackstar
With nothing left to chew, they split
Because it makes no difference who you are

They'll let you try
To reverse everything
Don't waste your time
Sing Hallelujah 'cause you can't change anything
They'll let you try
To reverse everything
Don't waste your time
Sing Hallelujah 'cause you can't change anything
Sing Hallelujah 'cause you can't change anything
Sing Hallelujah 'cause you can't change anything
Track Name: Tainted (Entropy Zero Remix)
It's not a question of why and if she'll make it
It's more a question of when and how she'll take it
Standing out there alone completely naked
Another secret's been kept and left her tainted

There's nothing more she can do to make them change it
She does the best that she can to rearrange it
There's still the question of how she's grown so tainted
A tattered canvas unfurls, watch as they paint it


She's at the edge of the world
She's there standing alone
She's the loneliest girl
And now she finally feels like she's coming home


Slowly fading and decaying
Please ignore what they're saying
Slowly fading and decaying
Please ignore what they're saying
Slowly fading and decaying
Please ignore what they're saying
Slowly fading and decaying
Please ignore what they're saying

She fought them bravely until defenses caved in
Pressing their teeth to her neck until she gave in
Now there's no question this girl is well acquainted
With suffering in a world that's left her tainted

She's at the edge of the world
She's there standing alone
She's the loneliest girl
And now she finally feels like she's coming home

She's just done what she’s been told
Her heart is turning to stone
Here at the end of this girl
This time she finally feels like she's coming home

Like she's coming home
Like she's coming home
Slowly fading and decaying
Please ignore what they're saying
Like she's coming home
She's at the edge of the world
Like she's coming home
Slowly fading and decaying
Please ignore what they're saying
Like she's coming home
She's at the edge of the world
Like she's coming home
Like she's coming home
Slowly fading and decaying
Please ignore what they're saying

She's coming home
Track Name: The Seven Sisters (Voicians Remix)
"Look up at the stars son", my father was saying
"Now go wish upon one, then spend your life waiting"

The Northern Lights could hear me whispering
Hunter Orion are you listening?
The rings of Saturn circle endlessly
And I'm still waiting

I cast my hope upon The Pleiades
The Seven Sisters who would come for me
They'd fall to Earth to grant a child's dream
But I'm still waiting

Alone in this darkness there's a dream still worth saving
I cling to a promise, and I am still waiting
Track Name: I Can't Wait (The Qemists Remix)
This flame is coalescing
This fire's burning bright
I know I'll get burned but it's alright
(Waiting anxiously)

It's too late to change direction
I'm fixed on her in my mind
Trade sense for sensation this time
(Takes control of me)

I can't wait

I want to be with you right now anyway
Reckless, so what? I can't wait to be around you

Take me, break me, right now - Why wait til "hell to pay"?
So dumb, so what? I can't wait to be around you

Her skin is laced with poison
Her words are laced with lies
Affliction is waiting in her eyes
(Take them willingly)

I can't control this compulsion
Like a moth into the flame
Her fiery embrace completes my shame
(Don't let go of me)

We bathe in this denial
Lay bare the secret place
For just a little while
Submit to this embrace

Pain unfolding
Shame beholding
Don't let go of me
Track Name: Gift For You (3D Stas Remix)
Hello again
I still try to remember how this all began
You can't undo
It's okay though because I've got a gift for you

Poison in the well, I've got a gift for you
A special place in hell, I've got a gift for you
The perfect place to dwell, I've got a gift for you
And though they're not as nice as the ones you gave to me, I hope that they will do

Hello again
I still can't remember how this all began
One thing left to do
So I'm here now and I've got a gift for you

Poison in the well, I've got a gift for you
A special place in hell, I've got a gift for you
The perfect place to dwell, I've got a gift for you
And though they're not as nice as the ones you gave to me, I hope that they will do

Sickness for the skin, I've got a gift for you
A cancer for within, I've got a gift for you
An ending to begin, I've got a gift for you
And though they're not as nice as the ones you gave to me, I hope that they will do
Track Name: So Long Sentiment (Raizer Remix)
Under this crushing wait, I'm sinking
It never goes away, the thinking
Echoes in empty rooms decaying
Alone to face the rest of me

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now

What the hell is wrong with me?
Why am I torturing myself?
Inhaling all these memories
Like a breath of fire sent from hell

Lead in my gut, not in my spine
I feel distracted all the time
Well lucky me I'm finally all alone
I'll miss you

So long Sentiment
It doesn't matter now

What the hell is wrong with me?
Why am I torturing myself?
Fixated on these memories
Like a prisoner inside a cell

With nothing useful to say and no one to listen to it
Filling the deep with the pain, I slowly sink into it
Consider questionable things to try to get me through it
I've tried to push it away but I always give into it
Long for the taste of the rain that finally helps subdue it
And washes this all away

Under this crushing wait, I'm sinking
It never goes away, the thinking
Echoes in empty rooms are saying
“Time to erase the rest of me”
Track Name: Against The Tide (Gydra Remix)
I finally get what you've been saying
Now that we're knee deep side by side
The storm clouds are circling above us
As we struggle against the tide

I feel your grip firm on my shoulder
But this fear in my head won't subside
They patiently circle around us
As we hold out

Oh father, why have they forsaken me?
You warned me that they would
Because it's passing down the bloodline
It's spoken and misunderstood

We're losing light
And strength of will
The darkened depths beckoning still
And we hold on against the tide

Beneath the storm you're left to fight alone
Remember son, you're reaping what you've sown
Under the waves and sinking like a stone
I'm sorry son, you're reaping what you've sown

Beneath the storm you're left to fight alone
Remember son, you're reaping what you've sown
Under the waves and sinking like a stone
I'm sorry son, you're reaping what you've sown

You're reaping what you've sown
You're reaping what you've sown
You're reaping what you've sown
You're reaping what you've sown

We're slowly losing ground
And hope is harder to maintain
When all the prayers we prayed
Feel lost like tears in the rain

The water's pulling down
The moon's eclipsing the sun
The ending that we knew would come
Has finally begun

You're reaping what you've sown

It's finally begun

You're reaping what you've sown
You're reaping what you've sown
I'm sorry son, you're reaping what you've sown
You're reaping what you've sown
You're reaping what you've sown

This sorrow weighs down on my shoulders
This fear's getting harder to hide
You'll leave me alone in this darkness
Left to hold out
Against the tide

Means we're bound to stand on ground that's unshakeable!
