Track Name: An Ocean Without Surface
one single moment
a shiver crawling down the spine
it has twisted me inside
yet it feels just so strangely cold
it seems like dying deep within

feels like I am suffocating
I have lived only for you

breaking down to pieces small
one hundred dreams
decay to nothingness
waiting for the phantom pain
the sweet demise
prelude to bitterness
waves are clashing over me
I’m sinking deeper, sinking deeper

you are here one breath away
I see your face when I close my eyes
so many things I couldn’t say
I miss your voice becalming me until I sleep

just one moment
has taken all the happiness
taken everything inside
seems like something pulls
me so deep down
it’s so hard for me to breathe

feels like I am suffocating
I breathed only for you

breaking down with just one fall
and seven years erased emotionless
anticipating without fear
the strangest thoughts
leading to emptiness
waves keep clashing over me
and it pulls me deeper, pulls me deeper

you are here one breath away
I see your face when I close my eyes
so many things I have to say
I miss your voice becalming me

until I sleep
Track Name: The Moment Of Silence
Reading through the pages
it's the diary of a madman
the beauty of his words
through thoughts of the insane

I analyze it, I compromize it
depraving it, preparing it for you

cutting it down to smaller pieces
cutting it down with rules and duties

peaces sorting, meaning dwindles
with razorblades through the mind

what the mind erases
put silence to the scene
filling up the empty spaces
disrupting the stream

ripping out the pages
once the diary of a madman
killed the beauty of his words
with the norms of the sane

I steralize it, I cauterize it
tissues of the brain
creating it for you

cutting it down
with razorblades cold through the mind

what the mind erases
put silence to the scene
filling up the empty spaces
disrupting the stream
what the mind erases
moments in between
filling up the empty spaces
changing the scene

cutting it down to smaller pieces

what the mind erases
put silence to the scene
filling up the empty spaces
disrupting the stream
what the mind erases
moments in between
filling up the empty spaces
changing the scene
Track Name: Voices
I'm painting the world in black and gray
I use the colours that I need
listening to what they have to say
can't get enough of what they teach

I'm holding my course
set to the uncertain
they're feeding on remorse
nothing leads the way

drifting through a space
where time completely lost its meaning
lost in there for days
the only thing that I'm still hearing
are these voices in my head

I've painted the world in black dand gray
I used the colours that I need
I've held my course
set to the uncertain
they're feeding on remorse
nothing leads the way

drifting through a space
where time completely lost its meaning
lost in there for days
a year maybe one life
drifting through a space
where time completely lost its meaning
lost in there for days
with voices in my head
Track Name: Dance Of The Scarecrow
fingers of lightning
they bind black to the green
it's so scaring while it's so beautiful
like a nightmare dream

it's moving so kindly
I'm watching it sway
to the waltz of the wicked
I am carried away

If this is a nightmare then I never wish to wake
leave the body leave the world so far away
this place it fills my soul with peace
I feel the warmth in me
so I never want to wake again, I wish to stay

it's shaking and it's turning
to the thunder sound
I hear it cheering, see it smiling
as it goes round

it's moving so kindly
I'm watching it sway
to the dance of the scarecrow
I let myself slide away

If this is a nightmare then I never wish to wake
leave the body leave the world so far away
this place it fills my soul with peace
I feel the warmth in me
so I never want to wake again, I wish to stay

an orchestra of flash and blast
lightens up the stage
storm and rain fill up the cast
conductor must be rage
I never want to wake again
I'll never be awake again
I never want to wake again
I wish to stay

I never want to wake again

If this is a nightmare then I never wish to wake
leave the body leave the world so far away
this place it fills my soul with peace
I feel the warmth in me
so I never want to wake again, I wish to stay
Track Name: Marking The Few
you see the dawning of a new age
in every prophecy I cast
smash the locks, destroy the cage
you believe that it will last

driven by a power
you do not yet understand
you climb the highest tower
for the love a god may grant
but I'll

give you
a pain that never ends
believe me
I'll create a place
without the human race

I pull
your puppet strings
and with a smile
I watch your dances for a while
you're free when I allow
I am forever and you are just now
for now

you are pathetic and naive
your sheer existance is disgusting
your growth, I say it brief
needs attention, needs adjusting

you're the puppets I am playing
in any way I may see fit
I hate your hopes, the endless praying
so right now I put an end to it

you're climbing higher
you can't understand
to meet your true messiah
means the stairs won't end

so I pull
your puppet strings
and with a smile
I throw your bodies to the pile
you're free when I allow
I am forever and you're just now

for thousands of years
I've affected your fate
first with love
and then with endless hate

I brought you all your wisdom
brought you death and war
I gave your minds a freedom
they never had before

I look into your eyes
with all my hate

I pull
your puppet strings
and with a smile
I throw your bodies to the pile
you are free when I allow
I am forever and you are just now
you should know
I've marked you all
you're on my list
I'm sure your race will not be missed
you're not free I won't allow
I am forever, forever
Track Name: The Breed
a darkness
disturbing
bluring
my mind

crawling
deceiving
growing
my fear

heartbeat
controlling
falling
behind

faster
screaming
running
from here

this panic's a killer
I'm eaten alive
my fingers are shaking
I'm frozen to ice

I woke what was sleeping
a fright without name
I'm frozen to ice
with glut in my veins

no one hears me
no one believes me
I'm not alone
I'm not alone in here

this panic's a killer
I'm eaten alive
my fingers are shaking
I'm frozen to ice

I woke what was sleeping
a fright without name
I'm frozen to ice
with glut in my veins

hiding
breathing
moving
in here

attacking
alarming
staying
alive

this panic's a killer
I'm eaten alive
my fingers are shaking
I'm frozen to ice

I woke what was sleeping
a fright without name
I'm frozen to ice
with glut in my veins
Track Name: Breathing Fire
splitting days off
off the glas
the lights turn black, we were
dividing moments
from the mass, we'll never be again

the past
I'd make it new
If I knew how

carving lies out
of your words
the way we were

the heat it crawls into my mouth
down the lungs and bursts back out
I'm breathing fire
breathing fire

damn the voice that
tells the truth
and drives the knife deep in
kills the old man
steels the youth
will never be again
will never be again

the heat it crawls into my mouth
down the lungs and bursts back out
I'm breathing fire
breathing fire

I'd make it new
if I knew how

splitting days off from the glas
dividing moments from the mass
like breathing fire
like breathing fire
