Track Name: Retrospect (Interface Remix)
How did I get here, why did this happen and when will this torture ever end?
Do I deserve it, am I a victim or is it all just part of the master plan?

Would I change anything if the hands of time would allow me to?
And if I could change everything what kind of world would I wake up to?

I think of the places, all of the spaces that I used to fill back then
All of my family, all of my enemies and all of those who I could call friends

Would I change anything if the hands of time would allow me to?
And if I could change everything what kind of world would I wake up to?

If I could turn back the page to those chapters of my life
How many times would I change my mind and what would I write?
Sometimes I wonder - does destiny have a plan?
And when will I ever understand who I am?
Who I am

Who I am

You do realize that this is all your fault
Every decision that you've ever made has brought you to this moment
You know how you got here
You know why this happened
You know you're not a victim
And you certainly know you deserve it
So why should your torture ever end?

Track Name: Mask (Simulator Remix)
Everybody told me that I was so naive
To have trusted you, but I did not care
Because I wanted so much to believe
What you said was true

But everything I thought I knew
Was just another lie behind the mask you use

And that's what you do with that mask you use
That's what you do with that mask you use

I tried to give you everything that a woman could want in this world
And then I gave some more
But now it's almost as if that doesn't matter at all as you walk
Walk right out my door

And everything I thought I knew
Is just another lie behind the mask you use

And that's what you do with that mask you use
That's what you do with that mask you use

After all of these years now all I'm left with are tears
Of regret and confusion
And I cannot believe these things are true

Everybody told me that I was so naive
To have trusted you, but I did not care
Because I wanted so much to believe
What you said was true

But everything I thought I knew
Is just another lie behind the mask you use

And that's what you do with that mask you use
I hope that someday somebody else does exactly the same things to you
Track Name: Foolish Slave (Vaylon Remix)
I'm not going where you want to lead me
And I'm not taking in the poison you would feed me
'Cause I'm not your fool
And I'm not your slave

It's time you knew I don't believe a word you say
I won't be a pawn in these sadistic games you play
'Cause I'm not your fool
And I'm not your slave

I won't kneel, I won't beg and I won't crawl
I'm not going to give you anything at all
'Cause I'm not your fool
And I'm not your slave

I'm not your foolish slave

I think it's time you realize that you are mine
You're my foolish slave and you'll serve my needs until the end of time
'Cause you are my fool
And you are my slave

You're my foolish slave
Track Name: iGod (Pretorium Remix)
Instant messages and chat rooms too
Whatever happened to you know who?
They think they've found a perfect paradise
But it's just a world made up of digital lies

The more connected you think you are
You’re an iGod now
The further you’re actually drifting apart
You’re an iGod now

It's time to crucify your iGod - join the real world

You spend your whole life online under all of your different screen names
And all of your friends exist as zeroes and ones
But can you even tell me when was the last time you walked outside and looked at the sun
You said the sun is always shining on your PC - on your HD LCD

Log on to your other life
Where you have no children and you have no wife
Friends are electric yes I guess it’s true
But no one knows the real you

The more connected you think you are
You’re an iGod now
The further you’re actually drifting apart
You’re an iGod now

It's time to crucify your iGod - join the real world

You spend your whole life online under all of your different screen names
And all of your friends exist as zeroes and ones
But can you even tell me when was the last time you walked outside and looked at the sun
You said the sun is always shining on your PC - on your HD LCD

You’re on facebook and myspace too
Thousands of "friends" are connected with you
You blog and Twitter everything you do
But no one knows the real you

The more connected you think you are
The further you’re actually drifting apart
Kill your iGod now! Kill your iGod now!
And join the real world

You spend your whole life online under all of your different screen names
And all of your friends exist as zeroes and ones
But can you even tell me when was the last time you walked outside and looked at the sun
You said the sun is always shining on your PC - on your HD LCD

Join the real world
Track Name: Deception (A Modern Effigy Remix)
I can't sleep
There's something troubling my mind
And I fear
That there's a secret you're trying to hide

I can't breathe
Thinking your love for me has changed
I believe
There's something you don't want to say

It's in your eyes
It's in the way you call my name
You can't deny it
Our love will never be the same

As I look outside
I see my whole world fade to gray
And I wonder why
Was my love for you in vain?

I can't believe
That I was the last one, the last to know
But it seems
You put on quite an impressive show

You deceive
When all I ever do is love
I believe
There's something you don't want to say

It's in your eyes
It's in the way you call my name
You can't deny it
Our love will never be the same

As I look outside
I see my whole world fade to gray
And I wonder why
Was my love for you in vain?
Track Name: Always Around You (The Dossier Remix)
In this silence there is no solace
There's no comforting a wounded heart
When only time will heal

I know you need me
I know you miss me
If it was up to me I'd still be there when
You open up your eyes

Remember now...

Even in those moments when I'm not there
My arms are always around you
When you're tired, sad and lonely
My love will be there to surround you

When everything in your life has turned sour
When you find yourself struggling through your darkest of hours
My love will be there to surround you
My arms are always around you

I know you're crying I know you're trying
I know you're doing the very best that you can
In an overwhelming time
I know you need me
I know you miss me
If it was up to me I'd still be there when
You open up your eyes

Remember now...
Track Name: Worthy (A Modern Effigy Remix)
You can try to tell me I
Mean all the world to my favorite girl
But I can see how she sees me
I mean no more than the dirt on her floor

No more

I know I'm not special in her eyes
She might think I have nothing important to say
Although I don't mean anything to her
I'm still someone worthy of love

In her mind she thinks she's kind
She thinks she's as fair as the color of her hair
But she can't see how she treats me
I mean no more once I've walked out her door

No more

I know I'm not special in her eyes
She might think I have nothing important to say
Although I don't mean anything to her
I'm still someone worthy of love

She can tell me that she
Doesn't want me
I know I'll find someone who thinks that I'm
Worthy of love

I know I'm not special in her eyes
She might think I have nothing important to say
Although I don't mean anything to her
I'm still someone worthy of love

Track Name: Bowman's Odyssey (Lux Remix)
Heading off into the great unknown
Discovery's flying where no one has flown
There's a secret that only HAL knows

I'm on a mission far away from home
I never thought I'd wind up all alone
Now I follow this signal
Across the universe

As I travel through the skies
I'm lost somewhere in space and time
I hope I'll find my way home soon
Don't leave me cosmically marooned

Flying through the blackest of night
My instruments failed I'm flying blind
Please help me find my way home soon
I'm somewhere near Jupiter's moon

Oxygen's running low I fear
I can scream as loud as I want -
Across the vacuum of space no one hears (me)

I'm on a mission far away from home
I never thought I'd wind up all alone
Now I follow this signal
Across the universe

I want to go home
I want to go home
Take me home
Take me home

I wanted to go there, I wanted to see
If there was anyone else out there besides you and me
But as I've grown older and space has grown colder
Now all I want is to go home
