Track Name: From Dust To Form
From dust to form.

Oh, I look upon this world only to realize that it's not the same.
What used to be important to me is dead and gone.
But I will recreate, I will rebuild it all again.

I will rebuild, I will restore, I will reshape this world.
I will create what used to be important to me.
I will rebuild, I will restore, I will reshape this world.
I will create what used to be, what was important to me.

From dust to form I will rebuild.
From dust to form I will restore.
From dust to form I will regenerate.
I will reshape this world, I will create what used to be.

Lies!
That's all they're full of anymore.
Fake people pulling the strings for their own gain.

But they will never take our hearts, our minds, our souls away from us.
Oh, they'll take all that you are.
They'll bend you to their will.
They'll crawl inside your mind and make you theirs.
They will make you theirs.

Oh, they want to take your memories so the only thing you see is the ruined imagery of what you once had.

Let them fade away back into dust.
Oh, the only thing they want is for you to turn on them.
Don't give them a reason for war.
It's better just to let them fade away.

And they will fade when the truth is revealed.
So let them fade.
Let them fade.
Let them fade back into dust.

Lies!
That's all they're full of anymore.
Fake people living in fear of when they'll disappear.
Track Name: Feature Creep
Wait, this must be a mistake.
The year is not the same but only a few days have passed.
What planet is this?
No, this isn't the same earth that I call home.

What's happened to me?
Am I dreaming? Am i dreaming?
This is all just a lie.
A bad joke of my conscience and soon I'll wake up to find that I'm back where I was three days ago, not ten thousand years, right where I left you.
But I cannot escape the thought: what if I'm already awake?

What's happened to me?
Am I dreaming? Am i dreaming?
What planet is this?
No, this isn't the same earth that I call home.

This must be a mistake.
The year is not the same but only a few days have passed.
I'm back where I was, right where I left you, but there's no one here.
There's no one here.

The dust is filling, oh, the dust is consuming my mind.
The visions have faded, leaving nothing behind but ruins.

Oh, there must be a reason for it all to have faded away into dust.
Left to wander for all of time.
Lost to the dust for all of time.

What's happened to me?
Am I dreaming? Am i dreaming?
This is all just a lie.
A bad joke of my conscience and soon I'll wake up to find that I'm back where I was three days ago, not ten thousand years, right where I left you.
But I cannot escape the thought: what if I'm already awake?

Oh, there must be a reason for it all to have faded away into dust.
Left to wander for all of time.
Lost to the dust for all of time.
I can't wake up from this nightmare.
I can't wake up from this nightmare and now I walk through this world alone.

The dust has filled, it's consumed my mind.
My vision has faded slowly over time.
(Everything has faded away)
I will rebuild.
I will restore.
(Everything has faded away)
I'll regenerate.
I will reshape this world.
Track Name: Greater Good
Wake up!
Don't you see what you're doing?
The fates of many hanging in the balance between what you do and what you say.
That in the end it will all be okay.

There's nobody listening to you, 'cause everything you say isn't true.

Whoa!
You say things are better off this way, but how can that be if you insist that we all vanish and turn back into dust?

There's nobody listening to you, 'cause everything you say isn't true.

You say it's all for the greater good.
Hurting a few, saying it'll fix the world.
What happens when the world disagrees with you?
Turning their heads just to spit back at you.

It doesn't matter what you say if you hurt everyone, 'cause when they've had enough you'll be on the run.
It doesn't matter what you say if you hurt everyone, 'cause when they've had enough you'll be on the...

Run from the past and it'll catch up to you.
Run from the past and it'll catch up to you.
Run from the past and it'll catch up to you.
Run from the past and it'll catch up to you.

Run.

You say it's all for the greater good.
(The past will catch up to you)
You say it's all for the greater good.
(And then you will pay your dues)

Whoa!
You say things are better off this way, but how can that be if you insist that we all vanish and turn back into dust?
Let this world we built crumble and rust without the help from our hands, which could easily rebuild it all again.

You say it's all for the greater good.
Hurting a few, saying it'll fix the world.
What happens when the world disagrees with you?
Turning their heads just to spit back at you.

You say it's all for the greater good.
You say it's all for the greater good.
You say it's all for the greater good.
(The past will catch up to you)
You say it's all for the greater good.
(And then you will pay your dues)
