Peering through a window
Eyes open shit
Breath turns into crystals
Stuck in a rut

Out cast from the living
No place to crawl
Disturbing comfort
Surrender to all

Long lost of innocence
A sadness falls
Somber yet unforgiving
Endless walls

This fear of dissension
Won't bring me down
Words without meaning
Don't make a sound

A saint of pretension
Streaming with lies
This crooked halo
Gleams in his eye

Sliding through the screen
Fingers turning blue
Worn out shoes
Perverted view

A savior is there
The end is near

. . .


I haven't slept in four days
Something here just doesn't feel right
This eerie place keeps me up all nights
So tired now i'm losing my sight

A yellow sky
Turning blue
Dead planet

I look around and see no end
Signs of extinction appear everywhere
This place called earth
Is just a burning shell
An inner outer living hell

We have come so far
Just to lose it all
This winding road
We call life
So civilized within our frame of mind
Never having learned
To be kind

What is up with this hole i'm in
No one here can hear me tell
What is up with this place
Someone get me out of this scene

. . .


Breaking all those rules
You made for me
Running through all these mind fields
Set for me
Burning in the fire
You fueled for me
Laughing at all the anger
You've thrown my way

I know what's real
I want to feel
The full effect
These open wounds
Will never heal
There's no respect

The anger will fuel the fire
The flames get higher
Backlash

Breaking all these rules
You made for me
Running through all these mind fields
Set for me
Burning in the fire
You fueled for me
Laughing at all the anger
You've thrown my way

I know what's real
I want to feel
The full effect
These open wounds
Will never heal
There's no respect

The anger will fuel the fire
The anger
The flames get higher

. . .


The filth, the greed, immoral needs
The shameless urge of consumption
A lustful motive against a fool
One's will by force to be ruled

Vengeance is mine now

Impulse to destroy
This anti matter
Contaminated with promise of belief

This catalyst
A tour de force
A smut peddler with no redemption
Immortal and unclean
Infected and obscene
Ill-defined objection

Swimming in a world of creeps

. . .


Through the smoke i see the trees
No one left for us to please
A perfect world where no one dies
Go to heaven with you lies

Wasted and confused
I walk around with a shortened fuse
A fire burns inside my head
Is this living or am i dead?
In my dreams i see the end
A perfect circle never bends
As time and hope erode our gears
I close my eyes for one last tear

Tomorrow may never come
Mountains clash in the sun
The freezing snow starts to melt
A quiet moment to myself
Reflecting somewhere in the past
I hope this feeling will always last
A paradise we stand alone
Forgotten king without a throne
A bird takes flight
Now out of sight
The sun catches its shadow

Above the air there is no despair
We are waiting for the moment

A darkened shadow hides my face
I hope i won't forget this place

This burning sky that we call home
In the end we stand alone
Come alive
Come alive
Breath

. . .


Deep inside
My forgotten world
This restless soul
Washed away

Anticipate
For better days
A hopeless world
Slipping away

Blurs of serenity
Hate forever burns
Crucified from above
Despite it all we never learn

So fragile, so faint
So damaged, yet so stained

Underneath it all hurts
Despite the calm
It all went wrong

Disappear in an empty hole
A darkened void to fill a space

A raging storm
Churns below
Final moments
To erase

. . .


Enter this corridor of light
Envision the loss of your sight
Daydream when it all seems right
Hallucinate division of the perilous flight

Break, break, break it down
Push up, push up the tempo

Incarnate the shadow of your soul
Incision a spiritless life to hold
Pacify a tranquil state of need
Compromise fulfill this righteous seed
Impassive within our selves to lead
Suspicious contentious life of wealth and greed

Close your eyes
And you will see
This target
This emotion
This conspiracy

Travel though the stars
Universe so large
No answer here
Just fear
And buried dreams

. . .


Protection from the cold
Isolation within to hold
Reflections of a long lost day
This universe a state of grace

When you rise
Above the clouds
When you see
A light of eternity

Remembrance not so kind
This storm leaves you blind

Answer you will never find
A dream you will never see
A hand for you to hold
A life forever grows old

The mirror of truth and time
Sadness when we fall
Wisdom you learn through time
Honesty within us all

When you rise
Above the clouds
When you see
A light of eternity

Remembrance not so kind
This storm leaves you blind

. . .


The silence of your voice in me
Immortal severance
To be free
Cold skin breaking
Question burn
Are you falling
Will you ever learn

The flood begins
No one wins
You feel like drowning
In a sea of bliss
A fleeting moment
You chance is gone
Self-manifestation
Right from wrong

Find the target
Who's to blame
Pull the trigger
Then take aim
Psychotic warfare it's all in vein
The price you pay
For glory and fame

There's murder in your eyes
No one gets out alive
Somewhere a human cries
No one gets out alive

Casting shadows
Of our selves
Your body is trembling
Within itself
Stabbing statements
Feel the pain
Find the gun
Then take aim
(Who's to blame?)

. . .


Unearth the vile of anger
Inside surveillance begins
Abide the urge you want
To breathe from within
Exhume the will of saint
You cannot ever prevail

We pass away but want to stay
To be born again
(On this remembrance day)

Absolved from the lesson
We watch the living fall

Existence finds no shelter
Embodied from resolve
The army that you needed
To lead a certain way
Now, don't look behind you
Cause nothing's here to stay

Out cast from the shadows
Drawn within yourself
Where no one else can find you
Lost within yourself
And as your breath slips away
I have to say
Could it ever have been right
Banished to extinction
A prayer for us all

Transparent and demented
Waiting for night to call

Unearth the vile of anger
Inside surveillance begins
Abide the urge you want
To breathe from within
