As children of the digital age we are often reduced to numbers and statistics, zeros and ones. As a
result our life can sometimes seem lika a zero-sum game, a constant struggle that barely keeps us
afloat, that rarely lets us feel valued and needed. Zero son tries to capture these feelings of
hopelessness and self-doubt and, at the same time, calls upon us to resist them with the fire the
spark of hope that dwells inside us is able to ignite.

Track Name: Fury In A-Minor
leave this shell
drain the well
clear the mist
freeze your hell
rage and yell

what’s left to lose
our names, our souls
our eyes are bruised
our hearts are holes

and we’re going down
let our hearts fade away
and we’re giving in
right here, today

Rewrite, reclaim
ignite the flame
Track Name: Hope In D-Minor
the day all my days are over
the time all time is up
I want to return to dust
be undone

this pain never lets me doze off
the spiral never stops
I try to forget the past
and move on

Yet I wake to see another dawn
another day
knowing I've wasted another one
I can't repay
There's no word to speak and
no more gifts to share
I'm not there

not there to show you
not there to see
not there to hold you
not there to be

give in
give it to me
this live
give it back

And though everything's the same
When I hear you call my name
I can stand up once again
And I might avert the end
Track Name: Rupture In C-Minor
Into the silence
into the night
where black horizons
absorb all light

I go down laughing
I wade with joy
through seas of nothing
into the void

though I may say the opposite
please don’t give up on me
when I say: I’ll just watch and sit
please don’t get up and leave
you are what keeps me steady
though sometimes I can’t show
while I may say I’m ready
don’t ever let me go

who says I can’t feel lonely
just cause I’m not alone
can’t ever claim to know me
so I’ll remain unknown

I’m not crazy
I just came to say
you should erase me
and walk away
Track Name: Struggle In F-Sharp-Minor
We’re made of stardust
and light
we’re forced to live and
we fall and stumble
through life
In search of shelter
or guide

We are told to aim so high
and to burn up all our lives

And when we get there
we’ll no longer be friends
and I’ll be back where
the whole world ends

Is anybody out there
does anybody care
is anyone around me
still aware
Is anybody out there
can anybody see
is anybody watching
over me

We have hopes still
we have souls
we have dreams and
greater goals
we all want to
be a part
we still long for
peace of heart
Track Name: Insight In F-Minor
When convictions start to waver
when our blood runs dry
when the sickness paves the way for
bugs and parasites
when the friction causes neighbours
to distrust, divide, despise

When the ground begins to swallow
all our pride and lust
when the bodies build a wall of
ashes, bones and rust
then the silence forces hollow
little hearts to trust

When our worlds are overlapping
when our souls collide
when the prison walls we’re trapped in
will be pulverised
when the hopes and thoughts we kept in
will ignite the light

When all reason starts to crumble
when all wisdom fades
when the highest towers tumble
and the mountains shake
we’ll be standing calm and humble
and await the final days
