Memory was written, recorded, and mixed over the course of one extremely busy month as part of the "RPM Challenge." Somehow, over the course of speed-writing the first lyrics that came to mind, a sort-of concept emerged. Most of the lyrics deal with looking at the past, either with fondness ("Ideasthesia") or regret ("Hamartia"); sometimes, being unable to remember ("Aporia"), and other times being unable to let go ("Pareidolia")

Track Name: Pareidolia (Your Face in Stone)
Over time our sight is fading
Many years in passing
You are gone but not forgotten
Somewhere else but not here
Every sign is a suggestion
Thinking of you always
Nothing left here to remind us
I can't see you anymore

And yet in every image
Your face remains unchanged
Invading every memory
You won't let me forget
Track Name: Ideasthesia (Rose Tinted Eyes)
The past is gone, a better time is lost
A case we all believe in
We hide away for fear of losing more
This life that once was common

Are we hanging on to a memory?
Everything that's been felt so much different then
Now forever lost in eternity
Was it ever true or only seen through invalid eyes?
Track Name: Hamartia (Last Regrets)
Hold on, don't let me fall
Hold out away from it all
Silence, still sense of life
Keep holding on for another time

One mistake and everything was taken so soon
One regret consuming every moment
Oh, to go back and try again
No solace in the memory
Track Name: Dysnomia (Speechless)
Track Name: Aporia (Follow the Light)
Promise to stay
Will you ever know the world outside?
It all fades away
Will you remember anything at all?
If this is only a dream
What happens to me when you wake up?
If nothing is as it seems
How do we know what's real?

Fade in, fade out
Adrift along always in doubt
Only so near
A memory once clear
Darkness and light
No understanding beyond our sight
Never too sure
Have I been here before?
