Track Name: My Misdirected Life
I opened myself up
But nothing came out
I tried to find the strength
But the well was all dried out

To come this far and find
Your smokescreens fading out
The years alone, the lives unled
The disappointment and the doubt

Behold the past as it unfolds
In ever-changing ways
The patterns are left unrecognized
And too few are the days

To come this far and find
Your smokescreens fading out
The years alone, the lives unled
The disappointment and the doubt

This unit has potential
But lacks the proper frame of mind
There is no retrofit
To fight the slow decay of time
Track Name: Alone and Lonely
When you're all alone and lonely
No one by your side
No one to console you
All the times you cried

When you're all alone and lonely
No one by your side
No one there to tell you
When you died
Track Name: Circumstances
I would be here
She would be mine
If not for circumstances
If not for time
Track Name: The Tendrils of Time
Watch the past go racing by
To snatch the future from your grasp
Those tomorrows you remembered
An echo of a future's past

In the meadows of my mind
Among the tendrils of time

The things you struggle to forget
The years you barely misremember
Some things are bigger in reflection
And we look forward to beginnings

In the meadows of my mind
Among the tendrils of time
Track Name: First On Land
We emerged from molten oceans
We divided and we spread
From a microbe to a tadpole
From millipede to man

We grew eyes to sense the sunlight
We stood to reach the heights
Once our tongues had tasted pleasure
There was no way to slow down

The night arrives
in time to see
our lives' demise
our rise and fall

When the first of us ascended
We could barely comprehend
All the wonders of the sky world
All the dangers of the land

We emerged from molten oceans
We divided and we spread
From a microbe to a tadpole
From millipede to man
From a microbe to a tadpole
From millipede to man
