01. Faith Healer

I wanted it all, but couldn't get it all under control
Didn't realize how much I could lose this way
I'm cleansing my soul in the light, trying to get innocent
Will you lead me straight, or will I lose my faith

Faith, without faith, I will fail, without faith

Carved out of flesh, this is who you made
I have come to find I was never on my own
I'm trying too hard to claim originality
Still I'm no one new, I'm just like you

Faith, without faith, I will fail, without faith

I always wanted it to be something different
I never wanted to be something other than me

Now it's come to this and I've not proved wiser than before
Neverending struggles wear different faces

The higher I climb, the harder I fall
And I've never found a way to break down softly
But the stars explode and help me reach the other side
That takes me from, what I've become

Faith, without faith, I will fail, without faith


02. Rusty Warhorse

See this rusty warhorse, so worn out and old
Once so gallant now so pale, can you help us anymore
Once proud in harness, now proud in vain
Now restrained we welcome you
Can you save us anymore

See this rusty warhorse, it's our new warrior
A new born king, a shiny warrior
Rectify until it's sane
Rusty warhorse proud in vain
Dead old creed it won't decay
Shiny warrior

Still this rusty warhorse, fighting for its life
You better believe it, you better watch out, or you'll be surprised
Old rusty warhorse won't you hear me please
If I set you free and let you go
Will you leave us alone

See this rusty warhorse, it's our new warrior
A new born king, a shiny warrior
Rectify until it's sane
Rusty warhorse proud in vain
Dead old creed it won't decay
Shiny warrior


03. Void

Feel under my skin, these shivers run deeper than before
See it is so real, now my heart beats faster can you feel it

Longing for the sun, to bring it back to me once again
To eat it out the dark the pain
Longing for the sun, I want to be free from this void, rid of this void

This void is pain

See it is so wrong, the dark is getting darker, so hard to see
Feel empathy, the art is so much harder than it seems

Longing for the sun, to bring it back to me once again
To eat it out the dark the pain
Longing for the sun, I want to be free from this void, rid of this void

This void is pain


04. Daffodil

See her looking down at us
She's so much higher I cannot reach
Her beauty dazzles me with its power
I try to pull at something deeper inside
But my hands reach out into cold emptiness

I'm falling down, world depraved, world so strange
I'm falling down into a world so strange

She smells of daffodils
Beneath the surface a rotten stench
It spreads out all over her being
Beneath that ivory skin a thousand worms
Are feasting on all that is dead

I'm falling down, world depraved, world so strange
I'm falling down into a world so strange

The world outside seems so strange, I'm safe here
On my own I can face my fear

This body's bruised in many ways
Cause your eyes burnt holes in its structure
I want to break free from this prison
I want to change these conditions, tear off the label
That you stitched so tightly to my skin

I'm a person
Why won't you let me be a person
That's all that I am

I'm falling down, world depraved, world so strange
I'm falling down into a world so strange


05. Lullaby

When we're in the final row, what direction will we go
I once was blind, but now I see this misery
How could this be so wrong when the desire is so strong
He's been wanting he's been wanting for too long

Good night sweet child, sleep for a while
Rest as I sing you a lullaby

A little angel came to life he smiled and turned away
This is no place for me, no place for innocence

And the demons come at night to feast on every beam of light
But don't be scared it's just a bad, bad dream or so it seems

Good night sweet child, sleep for a while
Rest as I sing you a lullaby


06. Imperfect

It's not easy to avoid who we ought to be
We're sighing then we're dying

We're only human with our eyes closed
We're only children of the sun
Maybe we have forgotten or maybe it has always been like this
Maybe we have forgotten that this machine kills

Are busy sighing, then you're truly dying
Do you still pretend to hear the angels cry
Are you still suffering or is it okay now
I can't believe this one track mind
Emancipation is a two-edged sword
This is not what I call freedom

Imperfect

Come a little closer, little closer
Hear me plead

Have you seen the first dawn of a new tomorrow
Do you still pretend to stand branded by the light
Now we're still suffering and it ain't okay at all
I can't believe we're so small
Still not what I would call freedom

Imperfect


07. Little Victory

Maybe it's the sound of pouring rain that we love
Maybe it's the sound of running water

I like the way that it feels on my skin, keep pouring
What's your war about anyway
A little victory over me
A little victory over me to tear me down

Tear me down, rip me open, break me down

This is a little victory

Never try to make you happy
Never fail to make you cry

Don't close your righteous eyes, keep preaching
You're not the only one anyway
To try and change me into you
While I'm the one in power to tear you down

Tear you down, rip you open, break you down

This is a little victory


08. Karma in Flesh

Here we are again, though we lost our mother's love
Hear me, touch me, feel me, hold me, I am so alone
Never will I know when it's over, maybe it's over now
Is it too late to turn around

We run away, true perfection in the eyes of the world
We run away, one step closer every day

It still keeps happening
The karma in flesh

We're so much closer now, we keep telling ourselves
It makes us whole or hollow

It takes a lot of pain when it's all becoming clear
All the time you thought you saved is gone forever
Do you ever think it will all start when you want it to
But it's too late to turn around

The karma in flesh


09. Received a Kiss

Are we a part of it, of it all
It just seems like we're losing hope

If there ever was limited pain, you would say you had it all
If there ever was limited time, you would never make it
But there's still time for both you and me
We're still alive you and me

Even if I could understand your decisions, your demands
You would never let me save you

I received a kiss from my maker's lips
Inside frustrated, the sky was clear
I received a kiss from my maker's lips
Without the sorrow (I'll be free)

Are we a part of it, your real love
What comes first and what comes last, do we really care
It's the same old song, same sorrow we're losing
We ought to be calm and save ourselves

Even if I could understand your decisions, your demands
You would never let me save you

I received a kiss from my maker's lips
Inside frustrated, the sky was clear
I received a kiss from my maker's lips
Without the sorrow (I'll be free)


10. Ode

The morning come not a day too soon
Wishing all the best to all that's gone

See these changes in my life
The torn away pain, is replaced by new meaning
An odd new feeling of changing it all

Only you who reach so deep down inside
Only you will know my name

It was you who said run to me

See this chaos in my life
Like washed away sand
Still they're turning to face me and dogfaced they rate me
They're charged with sin

Only you who reach so deep down inside
Only you will know my name

It was you who said run to me

Waiting, calling, riding, stalling
Rise to perfection, an ode to you

Watch me rise, right before your eyes
I am all, that you knew that I could be
The doubt it gone won't leave you standing all alone
