lyrics

I break reality's hold on me and escape to my conscious mind
Transfixed by this sudden trance, this shell of a man withers with the passing of time
Frozen in transcendence, I lose sight of this Earth and all those that I love
Once torn away from this world, I liberate my life to the void above

Lost beneath the masses,
I'm a prisoner bound by the voices of a dying world
Just crush this influence that's jeopardizing my mind,
I'll never let mankind steal what's mine

Take my soul
Beyond the edge of time and space
Before humanity devours me whole
Take my soul
To the vast realms past what my eyes can see,
Where cold uncertainty won't enslave me

I break reality's hold on me and escape to my conscious mind
Transfixed by this sudden trance, this shell of a man withers with the passing of time
Frozen in transcendence, I lose sight of this Earth and all those that I love
Once torn away from this world, I liberate my life to the void above

Echoes of existence ring out as my perception expands,
I'll free my thoughts to what awaits
Envelop me in vast expanses of the unknown,
I'll tear out the memories that plague the depths of my soul

I will never be the same
I will never be the same again

Beneath the veil of my most primitive desires,
The evolution of pure consciousness transpires
A moment of clarity, the final opportunity
To sever all human limitations from me

I break reality's hold on me and escape to my conscious mind
Transfixed by this sudden trance, this shell of a man withers with the passing of time
Frozen in transcendence, I lose sight of this Earth and all those that I love
Once torn away from this world, I liberate my life to the void above

Witness the extinction of my former self
