Track Name: Perfect Clock
Anxiety is burning me inside
I'm staring deeper with eyes opened wide
The laws are set, the movements scripted, the variations are dismissed
But if the chance has been restricted, then does the choice itself exist
Is there a way to live in peace being a part of the machine

We never cared to see we are the smallest cogs
Rotating endlessly inside this perfect clock

We churn each other up in ruthless fights for oil
The movement never stops, we kill to get the spoil
The gears are turning on not letting us to see
That we are not alone, just trying hard to be
I'm just a part of the machine, who would confide this world to me

We'll never care to see we are the smallest cogs
Destroying everything inside this perfect clock
Track Name: Natural Selection
It started without a reason
And now the competition is on
Only the strongest survive
Taking lives to stay alive

Keeping in my chest pieces of the Sun
Anxious for success, what have I become

From species and to the nations
Deliberate extirpation is on
Sinking teeth into the bone
Trying to reclaim the throne
Is this the right way to move on
Feeding on the weak
Crushing everything on the path
How long the world can let it last

Spreading like a pest
Bringing this world down
What will emerge next
Fighting for the crown
Track Name: Pale Blue Dot
All the arrogance ceases with a glance from a distant point
Indiscernible, everything we've ever known
Enemies and friends make their foolish plans sinking in the pride
Wasting breath about how much do we think we own

Faintly it's shining through the night
It's almost out of sight
We've made it out this far
All of the beacons will subside
It gets too dark outside
To find out where we are

So what the consequences are going to be if
The short-time thinking and conceit prevail
This is our last stand against the vanity
No one could save us from ourselves
This is our last stand against the vanity
There is no one to save us from ourselves
In the end we stare at the skyline where we can't define ourselves
Waiting modestly for a sign
Track Name: Satellites
We've built the cities and the walls to mark the place where we exist
We've said that Sun sat down and rose and to this day we still persist
But how does it feel to see ourselves on another scale
Where all this greatness dies and where we don't prevail

I don't think that we could last so long to leave a solid trace
From all of our hopes there isn't one that time could not erase
And everything moves along these rings as history unfolds
And we'll take our rest on solar winds that carry us home

That's shifted to the outskirts, cast away from the spotlight
We've been holding on to this place like it's firm
But it's moving 'round in circles like a satellite

We move in circles as ages pass like grains of sand in the ocean waves
Being a part of something so vast is to us nothing but a disgrace
So we grasp whatever hands can reach trying hard to show
That we are the masters of this tiny place that we call home

As I reach out for tomorrow I feel today slips right though my fingers
Track Name: Gravity
So this is how it feels to breathe in and this is how it feels to be alive
We were always safer than we thought until now so
Stay with me until the night covers us both
Hold your breath, we are imponderable
Satellites wander around far from home
We can finally lose this burden and heat of day
Watching as planets go 'round
With a light-speed we crash into every moment of our lives
For the first time we can see each other with wide open eyes

What if the gravity just stops holding us
Would we still be together as one
What if I don't believe that I have to stay
As close to the ground as I'm now
What if the gravity is gone, would you still hold me just as strong

Here in the middle of nowhere without all the blinding lights
I can see that everything looks different and now we've got nothing to hide
Now we can feel what was once imperceptible
Now we can fly as fast as we want
Now there is nothing left unacceptable, as we're close enough, if we're close enough

I thought we could never leave this place but now it seems to fade away
Only in the open space we can feel the gravity between you and me
