Track Name: A loose end in time
“Time is that in which all things pass away;
it is merely the form under which the will to live —
the thing-in-itself and therefore imperishable —
has revealed to it that its efforts are in vain;
it is that agent by which at every moment all things in our hands become as nothing,
and lose any real value they possess.”

Time will bury our hopes
Our dreams collapse
Our hearts degrade
With pain and other pleasures
Track Name: Nepenthe (ft. Emi Path)
I’ll ease you mind
I’ll hide your thoughts
All the voices will fade
Feel my lie don’t be afraid

I will collect
All your desires
Lock them in a silver cell
I’m just trying to make you well

Memories here could never harm you
I’ve built this maze for you
There are no whispers in the dark
You are safe here with me
Stay asleep

You are the one who harms the memories
You’ve built this maze for you
You are the whispers in the dark
You’re not safe I’m not here
You’re not here

- How am I supposed to feel?
How am I supposed to live?
