Track Name: Reality Rocks
Mayday, last day
Maybe it's a drop of water
Reality rocks baby
Blood of heart - it's tear
Without fear
Message to my dear

Before I wave good-bye to my pain
I want to say that I lad lots to gain
Eyes with tears streaming moving forward
Sorry, never want to go backward
Let me solve this puzzle we call life
Just want to go for a quick dive

Burn up the words inside that hurt me
I will live through lessons taught to me

No comment, no question but, why me?
Let God just for once try me

In the deep ocean made of tears
I dive smiling, 'cause I have no fear

Reality Rocks!
Track Name: Minstrel's Rise
The flame ignites
The path is right
So take the flight
Know I will try
Won't stop until I reach the sky

I've felt the end
I've questioned friends
The lonely trend
It's not in vain
There's been advantage to the pain

Lessons I've learned
From the absurd
The Truth is heard
Brings but a glimpse of hope
Seek guidance where it can't be spoke

Magic I've seen
You can't believe
Unless you're me
But know it's true
It's also something that's within you

Now you'll witness
The change in tides
And view the Minstrel's Rise

Ride through the waves
Go insane
Such is life

Wake up you'll know
Darkness goes
Feel the light inside

Now hear me sing
Raise your wings
Learn to fly

Now you'll witness
The change in tides
And view the Minstrel's Rise
Track Name: Reject
Intro (spoken)
Hey welcome to my head
Looking better than it's ever been
A bit cluttered, but I still get
Around because I barely let people in

Verse 0
I've always been this way
Live a life where nobody is okay
An inner struggle which I fight to prevail
A life-long quarrel which I will not let hail

I stand, and I observe
With a doubt that I will ever be heard
Never feeling justified in my skin
I force myself to be an optimist

Verse 1
I shine so fucking brightly
I look around, people feed their misery
Taking miles when they're given an inch
Cause they don't use the tools to scratch the itch

Before the void can pull me down
I step back, and listen to how it sounds
Try to piece together all that I know
Not everything has come to show

Pre-chorus
Here I go again, outside looking in
Alienate
Watching all of them acting ignorant
I turn away

Chorus
I Reject, I detest
Everything you have to say, so
You can just fucking go away
I reject, I deflect
All of your conformities
Society's normativities
I reject, I regret
Having to fall into line
What a giant fucking waste of time, you
Try to change me, I will reject
Try to tame me, I will defect
I cannot fit into your box
Don't even think to try
Fuck off and go,
I like to be alone.

Pre-verse
Oh shit, you're back again!
Don't expect me to hold on to your sins
I could suggest a better way to live
But there's no point, I know you won't listen

Verse 2
Actions speak louder than words
But patterns scream beyond the minute behaviour
Just shut up a second, can you hear
Or does the song make you want to jeer?

I won't take it anymore
I have no problem pushing you out of the door
If my noise is too much for you to take
I will rejoice at the distance I will make

Pre-Chorus

Chorus
I Reject, I detest
Everything you have to say, so
You can just fucking go away
I reject, I deflect
All of your conformities
Society's normativities
I reject, I regret
Having to fall into line
What a giant fucking waste of time, you
Try to change me, I will reject
Try to tame me, I will defect
Try to change me, I will reject
Try to tame me, I will defect
I cannot fit into your box
I thought by now you'd know
If you don't learn
You're just a fucking worm

Verse 3
You witness, here I hold
I don't care what you think will unfold
I'm driven here to give it my all
No shame if I have to crawl

Don't have time to be fake
Cause in the end, it doesn't matter anyway
So take your fucking head out of your ass
And take a long look at the beautiful grass

Pre-chorus

Chorus
I Reject, I detest
Everything you have to say, so
You can just fucking go away
I reject, I deflect
All of your conformities
Society's normativities
I reject, I regret
Having to fall into line
What a giant fucking waste of time, you
Try to change me, I will reject
Try to tame me, I will defect
I cannot fit into your box
I'll freeform on my terms
So don't ask why
And let me fucking fly
Track Name: Welcome to Eternity
Back to dimension

One
Start off with a single flat line

Two
Stack 'em up and make a flat plane

Three
Stack them up to make a cube
Physical space
There's so much more

Four
Every cube a quantum frame
A tube is made
A time line is gazed upon
People use it to look to the past
A future that lasts
No present to grasp until

Five
Here's a plane of probability
Has been, coulda been, all that has yet to be
Here's the place in which I like to dream
I strive, gonna thrive, and make it a reality

Six
This is where our universe it embolds
All the tales that go forever untold
Halted by the physical laws that we know
A multiverse of wonders we hold

Seven
Electromagnetic waves
Get distorted through incomprehensible ways
Each change another multiverse is obtained
Another realm of consciousness reigns

I think I see a pattern here
Am I making it clear?
I've thought of all this shit for years
Now it's time that you hear

My Theory of Everything
I live by this philosophy
What you get is what you think
So train your mind and you will see

That the choices made
And the lessons gained
They won't be for nothing
Tides are coming
Like a tidal wave
It's the force of change
So stand up for something
Just stop watching
Out for something great
You can pick a state
If you choose your actions
Wisely track them
You can find a way
You will be amazed
But you have to fucking go

Back to dimension

Eight
A plane of realities
With different obscurities
Fictional meets the real
Suspending the disbelief

Nine
Here we have the motherland
Absolutely everything unfolds
Anything you comprehend
It has crossed the mind of God's head

Ten
Everything that you hold dear in your brain
Memories imprinted to make you a slave
To the habit, a programming deeply ingrained
Since birth, a frequency that you made

Alternate
Response to the consequence
Go create
Absolve all the nonsense, I know
It's Insane
But cycles they speak for themselves
You have what it takes to tell

I think I see a pattern here
Am I making it clear?
I've thought of all this shit for years
Now it's time
To

Wake
Wake up
It's time to fuckin wake
Wake up

And Go
I said to fucking go
What are you doing? Go!
Come on and do it, go

Right now

Welcome to eternity
Immortalized through a
Thoughtform with integrity

Span out to infinity
You can't contrive the chaos
Flow with it's absurdity

Understand just what it means
To go unite with this
Information energy

Live your life with honesty
But do not fight against it
Show some flexibility
And you will find some peace in

Stacked dimensions
Mind's transcension
Show compassion
God's possession

You just heard
My Theory of Everything
I live by this philosophy
What you get is what you think
So train your mind and you will see

That the choices made
And the lessons gained
They won't be for nothing
Tides are coming
Like a tidal wave
It's the force of change
So stand up for something
Just stop watching
Out for something great
You can pick a state
If you choose your actions
Wisely track the
Path you start to pave
You will be amazed
But you have to fucking go
