I don't cry anymore
My tears have dried and my eyes have died
I don't see anymore
My eyes are blind and my magnifying glass is broken
I don't smell it anymore
I cannot smell the way to heaven
I don't understand it no more
There's no logic to anything I've scored

I don't fear it anymore
My sword is too sharp on the edge of freedom
I don't care anymore
My freedom is a jail and I am jaded
I don't scream anymore
My lungs are empty of air and my tongue is tied
I cannot raise the devil anymore
I am more than burnt-out

I've had it
I know you've had it
It's been far long since
I've felt so wrong
Now it's time to give it a try

On the edge of love
Too many times life's been broken
Now vulnerable more than ever
Can't let it be stolen
Away
Hey
With the high tide of one girl

. . .


Losing sleep, In too deep
Fading sun, What have I done
Came so close to what I need most
Nothing left here
Cut the ties, Uncover disguise
Left behind all intertwined
Lost control, Moved out of the role now
Nothing's left here
Leave it be
It was meant for me
Soul sacrifice
Forgot the advice
Lost track of time
In a flurry of smoke
Waiting anxiety
For a fair judgement deserved

. . .


The bright light beams
From her eyes
Like broken glass.
Or a broken heart,
Who would have guessed?
You'd leave me here.
Beneath my eyes I feel the tears,
I hold back.

I won't leave this way again.
I won't leave this way.

As my legs
Start to shake,
I feel nothing.
I wanted you,
I needed you,
(But you werent there!)
But you weren't there for me this time.
(I forgot!)

I won't leave this way again.
I won't leave this way.

You that I loved!
That I needed!
You weren't there.
Not this time!
You!

What can I do!
I was supposed to love you!
What can I do?!

I won't leave,
What can I do?!
I was supposed to love you!
I cannot feel you!

Last breath I feel!
Warm air intake!
Last summer's day!
Last one I take!

I won't leave!
Leave this way this way!
I won't leave
Lost it all!
All for you!
I won't leave.

When the shadows beam!
Misery remains!
I won't leave this time.

And as they say, Grief is only able to possess
The rotting body clad in ancient clothes
Is left behind with a wave of the hand
I have gone away, The bed is cold and empty
Trees bend their boughs toward the earth
And nighttime birds float as black faces
It was the hand reaching out through the mirror
Unknown and scarred by life...
The luring eyes, You had never seen
You have nothing more to find
You have nothing more to loose
The cold season drifts over the land
They huddle in the brown corners
Some would settle for less
The castles were all empty, Asleep
Long awaiting their king
Beckoning round the bend
Amidst the forest one would hear that I had been there
Draped within a fate I could not change
And always welcoming Winter's Epilogue

. . .


There's a place he knows
Where horrible stories grow old
It's in a house that mummy sold
Inside a door he knows
Where secrets are left to grow
Up from the basement and through the floor

And it's true that he doesn't believe
That a better set of days will come

Silence makes him sick
Silence makes him sick
And he wonders why it's all like this

He never leaves the playground
Doesn't wanna be seen around
Not before this ghost he knows is found

And it's true that he doesn't believe
That a better set of days will come

Silence makes him sick
Silence makes him sick
And he wonders why it's all like this


. . .


Silent dance with death
Everything is lost
Torn by the arrival of Autumn
The blink of an eye, You know it's me
You keep the dagger close at hand
And you saw nothing
False love turned to pure hate
The wind cried a lamentation
before merging with the grey
Demon of the fall
Gasping for another breath
She rose, Screaming at closed doors
Seductive faint mist forging
through the cracks in the wall
I shant resist
In tears for all of eternity
She turned around and faced me for the first time
Run away, Run away
Just one second, And I was left with nothing
Her fragrance still pulsating through damp air
That day came to an end
And she had lost in me, Her Credence

. . .


Heal myself-A feather on my heart
Look inside-There never was a start
Peel myself-Dispose of severed skin
All subsides-Around me and within

There's nothing painful in this
There's no upheaval
Redemption for my pathos
All sins undone

Awaiting word on what's to come
In helpless prayers a hope lives on
As I've come clean I've forgotten what I promised
In the rays of the sun I am longing for the darkness

. . .


Seven milestones...
Under a watching autumn eye
Contorted trees are spreading forth
The message of the wind

With frozen hands I rode with the stars

With anger the wind blew
Giving wings to my stallion
Clouds gathered across the moon
Blazing the white light

Passing the lake I know so well
I am near, yet so far away

Arrival...
I saw her shadow (standing) in the darkness
Awaiting me like the night
Awaits the day
Standing silent smiling at my presence
A black candle holds the only light

Darkness encloses
And the candle seem to expire
In her cold, cold hand
And as a forlorn soul
It will fade away

Touching her flesh in this night
My blood froze forever
Embraced before the dawn
A kiss brought total eclipse

And she spoke
Once and forever
I am so cold
In mist enrobed the twilight
She was standing...

. . .


There it was
The final destiny
A sunrise that never came
Still the night lamp that never faded away
Farewell was the word
And the afterglow was the brave morning
Rising and telling everyone
About the beauty of its Prologue

. . .


Let me taste
Let me feel
I need to know what you keep inside
No need to speak
Just let it be
Carry out this wish for me let nothing interfere
Rise to submission
I'm still beneath in the soil
Discard your clothes
Let loose you hair
We're intertwined forever and have always been
Say the word
And I'll depart
Upon your lips dwells nothing but the meaning of my cause
And so comes the dark
Vibrant as ever before
Flowers already withered
In this endless winter of souls
Outside in the park
The days move along
And nothing ever changes
They have nothing on us
And we've always knew
That nothing ever changes
Rise to submission
I'm still beneath in the soil
This is ours alone
Feeding of the warmth
Lured out from inside
Depending on the life blood
Silently
Whispering
Move in me and set me free

Cannot always get what you want
Should know that by now
Because these things are few and far between
Cannot control all my fears
It often takes me by surprise
And all the things I want to do
Disappear in the face of what i have

Why do we want more and more
It never stops
It never stops

Freedom is when I walk alone
Can tell myself what I want to
And freedom lives in me
So I do what I want to
Yeah what I want to

Why do we want more and more
It never stops
It never stops

If you could read my mind
I know you wouldn't want to

Why do we want more and more
It never stops
It never stops
