Track Name: Zenzizenzizenzic
256 days I wept as I waited for you
to find peace of mind
to find what is waiting here for you
256 years spent looking
lost, alone
the light of the dawn
time disappears into nothing
cause there is no time
there is no waiting
there is no crying
no weeping
256 days I traveled and wandered
and ended up so far away
and as I waited and as I drifted further and further into nothing
fading into oblivion
there was nothing

there has always been nothing
just figments and illusions and stories and words
creating everything
and words of love create a world of love for you and me
and for so long i've tried to show you how to create that world of harmony
shifting our reality
into shapes of things i thought we'd never be
and as you dream your life away
through the night and throughout the day
will you discover the way
as it waits for you to find it right in front of your eyes
as it waits for you to find it right in front of your eyes
it waits it lies
it wears every sort of imaginible and unimaginable disguise
shifting hiding running crying sighing dying

and forever is a journey that I have already traveled
I am at the end waiting for me
you are stuck here wondering if you will ever see
and you are stuck here loving all that you can be

if there was ever a thing I could ever claim to do
i would wonder why you were so afraid of me to know you
and I wonder if there ever is a place
where you are not afraid to face
creation as it stands in front of you
out the window in the night
everybody's fast asleep thinking they will be alright
if only they wake up

if only they wake up

wake up!

open your eyes
open your mind
allow the constructs of the past to fade away
allow the limitations of the past to disappear
allow your mind a chance to forget how to doubt
and a chance to forever forget the fear

256 days in nowhere
256 years to forever
256 men waiting at the door
waiting wanting knowing there is so much more
and there is so much more
there is always more

and you can always find exactly what you're looking for
and you can always find exactly what you are looking for
if you open your eyes
open your eyes
open your eyes
open your eyes

open your eyes
let go of the need to be wise
because you know nothing
you know nothing
there is nothing that can be known
there is nothing that can be bought
there is nothing you will ever own
and you are not yourself
you are not your mind
you are not the one
to be left behind

and no one can ever know
no one can ever know
because there is nothing that can ever be known
Track Name: Might Be Time
one more time to get it right
one more time to see the light

one more time to let it go
one more time i let you know

might be time

one more time to get it straight
one more time now don't be late

one more time to wonder why
one more time to say goodbye

might be time

one more time to get it wrong
one more time to sing my song

one more time to get it right
one more time to see the light

might be time
Track Name: Nothing Is True Not Even You
trying to feel something i cannot feel
for reasons i cannot reveal
it's all here and everywhere i go
it's all there and I seem to know

and it doesn't really matter anyway
see it all again some other day
see it all again a different way
oh how i just want to play

don't blame me for the attack
based upon the simple fact
that nothing is true
not even you
Track Name: Make It Last Forever
i question my fate
so i look to the stars
the answer's quite clear
and there you are

i wonder again
if this really is true
i close my eyes
all i see is you

i offer my love, my heart, my soul
if you might want will i ever know

what is left for me to do
but to await your hand
or you could set me free
and i would understand

i've done my best
i have given my all
i can catch myself
no matter how hard i fall

though i'd rather you catch me
cradle me in your arms
open up to my love
i can't resist your charms

so here we are
and there we will be
i'm so in love with you
can you ever love me

my mind plays it's tricks
and your words sometimes sting
i can't ignore my heart
as i listen to it sing

and i hope you will hear it too
without questionning why
when we're next to each other
everything feels so alive

maybe it's me
a feeling existing only in my mind
if that's all this is
then i don't even really mind

cause it feels so good
like a dream so real
i'd love for you to know this
i'd love for you to feel

if we find it and feel it together
we can make it last forever
make it last forever
make it last forever
