"...unquestionable pleasure...which transports us out of reality..." - Stephane Possamai, clarknova.org

"If you feel like drowning yourself in late-night melancholia and you're out of absinthe, The Aurora Project should be your poison." - Michael Toland, highbias.com

Track Name: Looking Through Glass
our heads are wet from the cosmic flow
our faces lit with an electric glow
our heads are filled with decisions and rhyme
our ship sails off from time

we're setting fire to the minds of the strong
your heads on fire and you push it along
we're setting fire to the minds of the strong
come along

our heads are wet from the cosmic flow
our faces lit with an electric glow
our heads are filled with delusions of time
our ship will cross that line

we're setting fire to the minds of the strong
your heads on fire and you push it along
we're setting fire to the minds of the strong
come along
Track Name: Into The Night
turn on
drop out
it's taking its toll
not what
we feel
it's what we see
they want it all
we're letting it go

into the night
and we will take the road less followed
get lost in streams of consciousness
and we will take the road less followed
fall in through the shadows
and see through what we hide

turn on
drop out
it's taking its toll
not what
we feel
it's what we see
they want it all
to debate
we're living in a world
that teaches us to hate

into the night
and we will take the road less followed
get lost in streams of consciousness
and we will take the road less followed
fall in through the shadows
and see through what we hide

all we create destroys us all we create destroys us all
Track Name: Isis Unveiled
my precious queen, my venus rise
and pull away your pale disguise
your word is flesh
it's living here
when all is done, there's none to fear

we'll sail away across the sea
and find a place that's safe and free
we'll take our will into our hands
and crush this maze we're stuck within
Track Name: The Procession
hey
my dear
hey
wanna go for a walk with me?
its so lovely when you're along

i'll meet you at the edge of town
when their heads come crashing down
and we're gone
so run away

hey
my dear
hey
come go for a walk to see
where the dream has come undone

hey
my dear
hey
wanna go for a walk with me?
we'll take our vows to the setting sun

i'll meet you at the edge of town
when their heads come crashing down
and we're gone
so run away
so run
run
run away
Track Name: For Tomorrow
feeling so low these days
life upon the riverbed
sometimes we fall so hard
i know it's inside you

and i walked along the shore
i walked along the end of time
i saw your face in the sea
washed along with the waves

feeling so far these days
i stole an empty sky
i've seen the world crumble away
like nothing
in your eyes

the sun has come today for tomorrow

(as surely as the sun rises, icarus flew higher)

the sun has come today
for tomorrow
i know that you know its true
Track Name: When I Have Fears
if i could take you there
would you even care?
would you see my point of view?

if i could grasp your dreams
and hand them to you
what would you do?

if i could see inside
what would you hide?
what would stay the same?

if i could recognize
the lies in your eyes
would you speak the truth?

on the shore of the world
i stand as one
thinking of love and fame
as they sink to the bottom of the ocean
taking everything
away

if i could take you there
would you even care?
would you see my point of view?

if i put my trust in you
could i believe in you
or would you go the other way?

what would you say?
would you turn your back
and run away?
far from your mind (your mine)

on the shore of the world
i stand as one
thinking of love and fame
as they sink to the bottom of the ocean
taking everything
away

everything they took in this world was mine
you're all i had and now you're behind me
i want you back
when i have fears
Track Name: Lost
i fly above
the sea of blue
i touch my dreams
and think of you
on white wax wings
we ride this haze
find another way
to escape from this place

i would open up to you
i would see things so new
i would open myself up
spread my wings
and fly away

you were here
but now you're gone
out in the cold
i'm on my own
fly away
towards the sky
racing the sun
i die

i would open up to you
i would see things so new
i would open myself up
spread my wings
and fly away
Track Name: Diverge
darkness
displaced by fire
dancing on water
disguised desire

i've seen the light
it's getting very bright
sun explodes within
i'll sail these seas until the end

i've seen the light
it's getting very bright
sun explodes within
i'll sail the seas until the end

i've seen the light
it's getting very bright
light up for the world
"don't be afraid, little girl"

i've seen the light
it's getting very bright
my sun explodes within
i'll sail the seas until the end

i've seen the light
it's getting very bright
my sun explodes within
i'll sail these seas until the end

take me away
across the sea
take me away
to islands waiting for me
take me away
across the ocean
all i demand...
devotion

diverge
Track Name: The Comedown
if there's a chance
if there's a way
out
if you find a way
take me by the hand

if you ever come
if you ever come down
look out for the ground
i've been waiting
i'm waiting
i've got to find a way

oh, love

if you feel like i do
there's a fire inside of you
if you find a way
grab my hand and take me away
for all that i have
i've thrown into the sun

and it's all coming back
it's all coming back to me
coming back
Track Name: A Song For All And None
i lost you
above the clouds
and i'm clouded now
i touched the burning sun
and now it's done
i've fallen down

but i'll be by your side again
my long lost friend
i'll be waiting here for you
i hope you make it through

i'll be waiting here for you
to make it through
i'll be by your side again
my long lost friend
i'll be waiting here for you
to make it through
i'll be by your side again
my long lost friend
i hope you make it through
i hope you make it through
i'll be waiting for you
i'll be waiting here for you
Track Name: St. James Infirmary
i went down to st. james infirmary
i saw my baby there
she was stretched out on a long white table
so cold, so fine, so fair

"let her go! let her go!
god bless her soul
wherever she may be"

she can search this whole world over
and never find a man like me

when i die, oh, lord
please bury me
in my suit
crimson and black
put gold coins over my eyelids so that
i know im going back
get six crack shooting pallbearers
six chorus girls to sing me a song
and but a jazz band behind my hearse wagon
to raise hell as we roll along
get sixteen coal black horses
to pull that rubber tired hack
theres thirteen men going to the graveyard
and only twelve coming back

so now you've heard my story
now have another round or two
and if anyone should ever ask you
i got the st. james infirmary blues
