Northlane Soma

Daydreamer

Rise and shine

Daily deja vu

Yet still surprised

Watch the weary world with greyscale eyes

A millionaire in my mind

With a pocket full of lint

Confined to a puzzle where the pieces don’t fit

Stare into a broken mirror

Reflecting shards of fear

Daydreamer

Now’s your time

I refuse to die here

I refuse to die here

I see a prison of a city, destined for collapse

I see the worker bees buzzing in circles

Fighting over scraps

I see a concrete garden

Of lead and steel trees

I see the clouds swell with synthetic disease

A visionless man can’t balance the scale

The court of conscience slips secrets on the gavel

Written in Braille

Lie just beyond my fingertips

Daydreamer

Rise and shine

Daily deja vu

Yet still surprised

Watch the weary world with greyscale eyes

A millionaire in my mind

With a pocket full of lint

Confined to a puzzle where the pieces don’t fit

Stare into a broken mirror

Reflecting shards of fear

Daydreamer

Now’s your time

I refuse to die here

I refuse to die here

Northlane Leech

Follow me underwater

Until the searchlights leave the shore

Follow me underwater

Until we find what we’re looking for

Plastic oceans, plastic farms

Cover your footprints like a band-aid on a broken arm

They found the pipeline through the soul in the soil

I thought this place never changed

But now the reefs are bleeding smells of oil

And the forests are up in flames

You fell asleep, you fell asleep, you fell asleep

While your bed burned

You fell asleep, you fell asleep, you fell asleep

While your bed burned

Give me a reason, tell me why we lost our reason

Tell me the truth, not an excuse

Cause we have everything to lose

Plastic oceans, plastic farms

Cover your footprints like a band-aid on a broken arm

There’s a cancer in our lifeblood, so silently it grew

The streams of least resistance poison me and poison you

There’s a virus in the air, that drags the wind out from my chest

I don’t see a way out

All I see is a sphere of unrest

Show me a way out

Show me a way out

Show me a way out

Follow me underwater

Until the searchlights leave the shore

Follow me underwater

Until we find what we’re looking for

Plastic oceans, plastic farms

Cover your footprints like a band-aid on a broken arm

You fell asleep, you fell asleep, you fell asleep

While your bed burned

You fell asleep, you fell asleep, you fell asleep

While your bed burned

Northlane Worldeater

You think you see the world

I’ll tell you nothing’s how it seems

You think you see the world

I’ll tell you nothing’s how it seems

Organ of intuition, suppressed and maimed

Believed to be “Nothing but a Dream”

Dimethylated spirits on fire in me

Burning from the inside

Divorce from nature

Exile from Eden, confounding of tongues in a world full of lies

Why can’t we open our eyes?

You think you see the world

I’ll tell you nothing’s how it seems

I’ve seen the world with the clearest of eyes

A world of fear, it’s loud and clear and no surprise

They watch us from above

Can you feel the chaos overtaking us like a never ending plague

They watch us from above crying tears of blood

Crying tears of blood for the souls of the world (souls of the world)

They watch us from above

Now I hear the voices of an ancient race

Peering through the veil of time and space

Emerging from the void I am reborn

I see the world for what it really is

Distorted visions of heaven

I have discovered there’s hope in my heart

For I am One

I am One

I am Love

I am Bliss, I am Everything

I am Everything you fear

Everything you’ve ever known

But don’t be scared (but don’t be scared), for I am here

You think you see the world

I’ll tell you nothing’s how it seems

All your dreams

Nothing’s how, how it seems

All your dreams, all your dreams

Northlane Render

Pilot of the biomachine

Manning the controls of a babbling monkey

The circuits behind the interface can’t be seen

So the truth is up to me

Is this life but a dream

Is reality

All my senses perceive?…

It tears me apart from the inside

The story we’ve accepted with malleable minds

Dogmatic perceptions designed

In egotistical pride have led us blind

Short of sight

Wondering why our lives feel like they’re lacking meaning

We have stopped believing

This is just a ride

This is just a ride

Is reality

All my senses perceive?

Is what I touch and I see

All that lies in front of me?

We wonder why our lives feel like they’re lacking meaning

We’ve stopped believing

This is just a ride

This is just a ride…

Northlane Obelisk

Time in constant motion,

Like the shifting desert sands

Slipping through my hands

Chasing down the minutes,

That turn into days

Seconds get shorter,

As years fall away

Chasing down my dreams

Under borrowed light

A mirage in the distance,

Escaping my sight

Driven to live or driven apart

What’s inside us when we depart

Driven to live outside of regret

Time is finite, the clocks are set

Driven to live or driven apart

I realize my flame is burning away

Starward searching I will find my way

The power of the mind ready to combust

I will show you fear in a handful of dust

Combust

My flame is fleeting,

But I will live and learn

Rise and burn, Tick and Turn

Rise and burn

Time in constant motion,

Like the shifting desert sands

Slipping through my hands

Driven to live or driven apart

What’s inside us when we depart

Driven to live outside of regret

Time is finite, the clocks are set

Driven to live or driven apart

Combust

Northlane Transcending Dimensions

All my life I’ve been searching for something to put my faith into to give my

life to you. and I will love you in this world and if there s a next. Among the

chaos of this world and the overwhelming tide of responsibility. I remember how

long it’s been since I’ve felt warmth within my heart. A cold world where love

would transcend this dimension. A continuous source of inspiration. And I’ve

been waiting for all of my, all my life. I’ve been searching for something to

put my faith into. To give my life to you, and I will love you in this world

and if there’s a next. All I want is to remember what it’s like to love again.

This blistering cold, I’ve grown so fond of left me in a heartless state. And

after all these years I’ve finally realised that maybe I was never meant to

love, or be loved. And if you want to run away I can take you there. I can take

you somewhere beautiful and it can be our world.

Northlane Windbreaker

When the wind breaks before our very path

We are swept away (swept away)

I hear the wind howling my name

When the wind breaks before our very path

We are swept away (swept away)

I hear the wind howling my name

Leaving behind me everything I thought that i should be

Everything they told me was right

Leaving behind me everything I thought that I should be

Everything they said about life

We have made the sacrifices

We have been patient for long enough

It is our chance our time

Our time

Our time to rise the fuck up

I will break the wind

This road it leads so far away from home

I breathe in the air down a road to nowhere

Streams of oxygen soothe our forms

We long to breathe in the air around us

I feel the kiss of the breeze against my face

We long to feel the air around us

I’m packing up

I’m leaving here

Don’t know when I’m coming back

Close your eyes and I disappear

I’m packing up

I’m leaving here

Don’t know when I’m coming back

Close your eyes and I disappear

Floating free throughout this life

Reshaping my thoughts, time does wither the mind

And in due time

The life I thought I wanted I never seem to find

It might be dark, it might be cold

So if I ever feel like turning back

I just breathe and remember

Where I am (where I am) inside (inside) the dream

I will break the wind

When the wind breaks before our very path

We are swept away (swept away)

I hear the wind howling my name

When the wind breaks before our very path

We are swept away, swept away (swept away)

I hear the wind howling my name

Break!

I will break the wind

Northlane Node

You can be the change

Pain is the elixir that keeps us entertained

Flowing through a looking glass

Numbing stinging eyes of shame

Absence rinses guilt away

But our conscience is still stained

You can be the catalyst

The ripple to the wave

You can be the change

One small step will shake the earth

We’re sedated into submission

Apathetic addicts

Hooked on tunnel vision

Mindless progress is a dire setback

Humanity is slipping through the cracks

Let the pathways through our hearts guide us

To a universe where love survives us

You can be the change

One small step will shake the earth

Let the pathways through our hearts guide us

To a universe where love survives us

Northlane Veridian

He saw the life slip from her emerald eyes

Confusion, illusion had soaked up her mind

She clutched his hand, whispered her soul

“I never wanted to grow so old

Life’s agony, turn off the machine

Let me leave this world with dignity”

Just let me leave this world

Bed of nails under the guillotine

Wake me up when my heart stops beating

When my heart stops beating

Wipe those tears of grief away, young man

Let me leave this world

Let me leave this world in peace

Turn off the machine, turn off the machine

Let me leave this world in peace

Raise me from this bed of nails

And let the angels carry me away

Carry me

Carry me away

Bed of nails under the guillotine

Wake me up when my heart stops beating

When my heart stops beating

Let me leave this world

Northlane Exposure

I’ll tear the memories out of my subconscious and piece together where I went

wrong. Sewn together with the strands of lament I’ll cloak myself in a veil of

remorse and regret, that keep me bound to a world that will never forget. So as

I walk through the street eyes and voices consume my mind, they stare

ambiguously. here I am with my insecurities, all my imperfections, crying out

to a world that just wont listen. Lend me your ears, your hearts and your minds

and discover what’s missing. These words are the only thing keeping me from

falling into the darkness where my thoughts are no longer my own in the arms of

my kin my family in the hearts of those sincere in the face of adversity here I

am free from hindrance from all doubt from all the voices calling me out here I

am pouring my mind and heart into a world that doesn’t listen. For those who

remember, for those who care remember your are not alone. Here I am. Here I am

stuck in a world that never listens. Here I am pouring my heart out I am not

alone. I am not alone.
