Track Name: Chemistry
Unsure of your identity
Uncertain of your culture
Caught between the high tech and the primal
Their patterns of behaviour
Inflexible in their nature
The kings and their advisers
The cautious and the warriors

Their inclinations
Cause alienation
Perpetuation of formulae
The battle's uphill
But you must fight still
Life's not construction
It's the subtlety of chemistry

Meteor storms bombarding
The surface of this planet
Don't let this be your personal mass extinction
Their patterns of aggression
Preach stereotype behaviour
Just let evolution
Leave them in its slipstream

Their inclinations
Cause alienation
Perpetuation of formulae
The battle's uphill
But you must fight still
Life's not construction
It's the subtlety of chemistry

DNA is not a blueprint
DNA's not architecture

Unsure of your identity
Uncertain of your culture
Caught between the high tech
And the primal

Their inclinations
Cause alienation
Perpetuation of formulae
The battle's uphill
But you must fight still
Life's not construction
It's the subtlety of chemistry

Their inclinations

Track Name: Comparatively
It's not right
It's not right
To fall apart so easily
Comparatively
We have much more than those
Who've gone before
We never know our fortune

We see it
We feel it
The time slips through our fingertips
Comparatively
At least we have that luxury
We have the energy to know it

It's all right
It's all right
To fall apart just sometimes
The grass is lush and green
Across the way
But that is all in your mind

We see it
We feel it
The time slips through our fingertips
Comparatively
At least we have that luxury
We have the energy to know it

Comparatively
We have much more than those who
Comparatively
We have much more than those who
Comparatively
We have much more than those
Who've gone before
But that is all in your mind
Track Name: Earthbound
Take your pure white dreams
And add a sense of realism
Then watch all you take for granted
Fade away to dust

You're as fragile as the rest
Just as prone to make mistakes
But I know you won't
Because I know you'll never fall

Despite what you might think
You are earthbound
Just like everyone
Despite what you might think
You'll be earthbound
When it all goes wrong

Take your pastel shades
And add a sense of cynicism
Then you'll see the world
That most of us know very well

Life's not as perfect as you think
But who am I to put you right
When you're the solar source
Within the system that you rule?

Despite what you might think
You are earthbound
Just like everyone
Despite what you might think
You'll be earthbound
When it all goes wrong
Track Name: Symbiotic
Are we symbiotic, sympathetic
Am I the only one that gets it?
Is it all illusion, childish delusion
To lighten the weight of this world?

Are we lead and rhythm, flotsam and jetsam
The answer to an unspoken question?
Are you yang to my yin, are you just past caring
We'll ever be more than we are now?

Don't say that it's so, don't say that it's so
Don't say that it's so - I can't let go

Are we symbiotic, are you apathetic
To the possibility to progress this?
Am I fooling myself, to offer my help
In getting you through all life throws at you?

Are you yang to my yin, are you just past caring
We'll ever have more than we have now?

Don't say that it's so, don't say that it's so
Don't say that it's so - I can't let go
Don't say that it's so, don't say that it's so
Don't say that it's so - I can't let go
And I miss you so
Track Name: Oblivious
Undone by transparency
You can always see right through me
Cold as ice? From your eyes
Working you out ain't so easy

Long are the sleepless roads that I roam
Trying to crack your code

When will you, will you start seeing?
When will you, will you start feeling?
When will you, will you start seeing?
It's so obvious - you're oblivious

Confident, intellectual
Which of these do you respond to?
Have I sufficient in my system
To get closer to you?

Long are the sleepless nights that go by
Hoping you'll open your eyes

When will you, will you start seeing?
When will you, will you start feeling?
When will you, will you start seeing?
When will you, will you start feeling?
When will you, will you start seeing?
When will you, will you start feeling?
When will you, will you start seeing?

It's so obvious - you're oblivious
It's so obvious - you're oblivious

Long are the sleepless nights that go by
Hoping you'll open your eyes

When will you, will you start seeing?
When will you, will you start feeling?
When will you, will you start seeing?
When will you, will you start feeling?
When will you, will you start seeing?
When will you, will you start feeling?
When will you, will you start seeing?

It's so obvious - you're oblivious
It's so obvious - you're oblivious
You're so devious - I'm ingenuous
