    01 new element

    Flash of fire, illuminate the sky
    Penetrate the pupil, burnt into your eyes
    Flash of fire, illuminate the sky
    Rise and shine from this trance, you've been sleeping

    Falling from the heavens
    Splendour of the starburst
    Lifeless in the static
    Fraction of the formula

    I've become a new element

    Cos it's where you're standing
    And you're never ever moving
    Cos it's where you're staying
    And you're never ever moving

    Flash of fire, illuminate the sky
    Directionless you fly
    Flash of fire, illuminate the sky
    Rise and shine from this trance, you've been sleeping

    The fundamental - "EVOLVE TO SURVIVE"
    It's instrumental, without it we die

    Feel it running through the *wires*
    Setting me ablaze and then dispersing
    Leaving just a piece of *wire*
    Sending me away, never returning

    02 drag

    What makes you think that all this time's for wasting?
    A broken link between the thing's you're doing
    Things that you're saying
    The line is straight, I know what I am chasing
    I've never been a one for waiting or procrastinating
    And the time is right NOW!

    Superficial, beside the point - a loss of time, wasted opportunity
    When you're through will this satisfy you?
    What I want is something more absolute
    No reason to try at all
    It's some kind of joke cos I'm hearing you talk the talk
    Believe more when I see the walk
    What I want is something more absolute

    And you talk about your action
    Do you really mean a word that you say?
    This is more about direction
    No it's not about the easy way (taking the easy way)

    What makes you think that all this time's for wasting?
    A broken link between the thing you're doing...
    ...things that you're saying
    The line is straight, I know what I am chasing
    I know exactly what I want
    The time is NOW, the time is now for us to go

    03 witness

    Witness - did you see, can you tell me?
    Witness - was it everything you dreamed about?
    Witness - did you hear, were you listening?
    Witness - (your) reality is up against the wall

    Witness - if nothing moves, nothing changes
    Witness - if nothing changes then we fall apart

    And nothing moves but everything is coming apart
    The lights on, is that better?
    Do what you say you will, no news is great news but...
    Is this equal? ARE WE EQUAL?

    It's all the same
    What's a place if it's not right here?
    And you don't want to be blamed
    It's easier if you just say nothing
    It's all the same
    Everything used to be so simple
    You just want to go back
    Back to the way things used to be

    I hope i'm wrong

    I'm scared to take myself to pieces
    And try to understand what goes inside
    I have so many sides I've lost shape
    And I don't even notice or feel the wall that I've run into

    Silence is the plague, spreading suggestion
    Simply isn't true that you can't open your mouth

    Have I seen before?
    It must be deja vu?
    Or is this a vision off the end?

    It feels like a recent regret?
    But I really hope I'm wrong
    I can't take my eyes off it
    But I hope I'm wrong
    Take it slow, reach out my hand


    08 veil

    Tracing back the steps I took to get to here
    Hidden in the back and forth it's never clear
    Counting all the times I stumbled and fell
    Given everything I know that this won't end so well

    When we're apart it's easy to think "I'm done with it"
    I'll be masquerading
    Feels like something is weighing me down
    I'm sinking so deep there's no escaping
    When you are here, it all disappears
    And really then I don't need persuading
    Feels like something is weighing me down
    I'm sinking so deep there's no escaping

    So have I changed? Am I out of range?
    Did we lose our way (or) did we just lose each other?

    So are we just repeating, no real end or beginning
    Our foundations are creaking, why wo we carry on?
    So are we just repeating, no real end or beginning?
    Sick and tired of misreading. It's time to call it off

    The broken things I left in my way
    Promises, bones and the hearts that I
    Should really really really have kept out of harm's way

    Do you think I'd care if you really meant
    Nothing at all?
    The time that we spent, it was everything
    But now it's all gone and there's nothing left
    We're no longer one - you're gone

    04 ape

    God sent us up from the animals but hey
    I don't know what it means
    I'm just a monkey swinging
    Oh oh ay, oh oh ay

    "Stay cool" - not an easy request but hey
    Ask the question, ask the question
    Your bent rules got me dazed and confused but I'm
    On the money, on the money honey
    "Stay cool" - not an easy request but hey
    Stay cool, ask the question
    One day I swear it's all gonna fall into place

    Now now, it's just a rock that's spinning around the sun
    Now now, it's not like we can change it
    Now now, can we unfold it all before we're done?
    Now now, we'll never rearrange it

    "Stay cool" - quite a tricky request but hey
    What's the answer? What's the answer?
    You're no fool but you're miles away from being
    On the money, on the money honey
    "Stay cool" - not an easy request but hey
    "Stay cool" - ask the question

    No, nobody knows
