01. The Lie

Illusions running down my throat
Your eyes get lost in the thick white smoke
I blow into your face
...Why are you so afraid?
We're all standing into a meaningless eternity...

Tell me why can't you see right through me?
Why can't you see that I am only an illusion?

...Aren't you scared that you'll lose yourself in me?
Aren't you worried... That I'll lose my dreams in you?

'Cause darling we are all living a lie
We've risen above the depths of our love
And now there is nothing to hide our real world behind
We can deceive ourselves no more...

When will the hourglass break?
Do I have to tear out your bleeding heart
From deep inside your soul
For you to let me in?
...Lying ourselves into a meaningless eternity

Tell me why can't you see right through me?
Why can't you see that I am only an illusion?

We've risen above the depths of our love
Can we accept illusions are all that we have?
Is there a truth worthy enough?
Is it really worth waking up?
Indulging in lies...
Reality might just tear us apart?


02. Mirage

Hush now, the morning's near
Her crystal light will wash away all your fear
Your teary eyes she'll blind with hope
She'll make you believe
There's meaning to reveal
Make you believe yesterday couldn't be real

So wipe your eyes now and be brave
Let that false hope lead your way:
This frail mirage might just warm your frozen heart

Brace yourself...
There really is nobody out there
To hold your hand when you are ready to fail

Darling hush now...
The night is near
To bury your pain in darkness and fear

And on the dusty roads we ride
With nothing but our foolish pride
Trying to find the way forward
Desperately searching for
Who we really are

So close your eyes now and be brave
Let those dreams stand in your way
Their frail mirage might just want warm your frozen heart

...If it's all for the happy days
Don't turn around don't look ahead
For meaning you will have to face
The demons you've erased


03. The Glory Of A New Day

Could I ever lose my way?
Leave behind all that's been

Would the world seem the same?

Void of memories
Those broken moments
Never fading,
Aching smiles and tears

Deep inside I feel
It's so insane, so surreal
But I know I can't forget
And I know I can't forgive

Some things just never change
Some just fade away
No matter how we want them to stay
No matter how we try to hold on they're just gone
And we have got to keep on living
Try loving the moments while they last
Leaving dusks behind
Reborn in the brave new light of dawn

Even if every smile, every laugh
Is screaming, aching, bleeding inside


04. Inside The Hourglass

Sneaking, lurking inside the mist
Of our screaming ego
A lonely, a faded echo
Eagerly counting down the days
Until we're done with it all
Signalling an end to all of those hopeless dreams

'Cause we are so far behind...

It's time to realise the here and the now
It is the moment we'll miss when we look inside
Searching for all that could've been
That could've been...

We are crawling inside for dreams
That will never mean as much
As we thought, as we hoped
They'll just fade like a lover's touch
But fear not, 'This too will pass'

Chained down but alive
Blinded by the weight of time
Slipping away like clouds...

A thousand lies, a thousand fires
Burning inside broken hearts
A thousand times we fall and rise
Aghast at our final demise

It's time to realise the here and the now
It is the moment we'll miss when we look inside
Searching for all that could've been
That could've been...


05. A Sorrow To Kill

Woken by lifeless moonlight
Abandoned by dream and night
All awake but still inside
Trapped behind words too sublime

Desperation is long dead
I am lost and I am damned
To watching the world go by
Without a trace, without a smile
...Wake me up...

My voice drowns in tears
As I left go of your hand anf tell you to leave
Still I'm choking on unsought thoughts
Shapeless ghosts of old memories

Desperation is long dead
I am lost and I am damned
To watching the world go by
Without a trace, without a smile
...Wake me up...

...I need to break away,
I need to break away or die
This pain is too real and alive
Suffocating from the inside
I wish I knew another way out
Another time and place
Another life to face

Suddenly it all became so clear
It's so easy not to care
So easy to let go...

'Cause it's in my blood
Flowing through my veins and I've no way out of this now
But maybe just maybe the other side will welcome me
Into the darkness I yearn
Into a frail infinity
Void of self and memory...
But you my darling will stay and realise
That you are so lost now
Just watching the world go by
Without a trace, without a smile

...Wake me up


06. Asylum

Living inside a world of reflections
Feeding off shadows cloaked as happiness
Wrapping delusions in silky webs
Stuck to our chests like the meaning that'll make us a whole
A noble goal to live and die for

Within our cocoons in cosy and warm
Sliding off reality into a rabbit hole

Waiting, hoping, screaming for love and lust
For our flesh to turn to dust

In the midst of our fragile flames
We burn and rise
Lost in our great demise
Ignorance delights inside our little broken hearts
And we decide
That we have now arrived
To a great end that just wasn't worth the ride

Waiting, hoping, screaming for love and lust
For our flesh to turn to dust


07. Fallen From Grace

Anxiety embraced my days again
Trapped by your voice I've lost all my strength
So close and still so distant

How can I live this lie for you?
Though I might have been lost for a while
I see clearer than ever now

'Cause I'd speak but there's just nothing more to say
Words never sounded so in vain
You're chasing dreams only meant to break
Burying yesterday's mistakes

For you it's all the same
Never known to doubt just to obey
Inside four walls, safe never mind the chains
To break free is to lose your possession
It's so much easier to live each other's delusions

'Cause I'd speak but there's just nothing more to say
Words never sounded so in vain
You're chasing dreams only meant to break
Burying yesterday's mistakes
Delusions outdated
Failures unaided
So afraid of changes
We'll fall again

There's no denying that your words warmed me up inside
When I lay awake at night, in the darkness that just grew far too dark
But then if you had lied that everything was all right
I never would have thought to fear the dark

There's just nowhere to progress from here,
Your inept conviction slowly wears me away

So lost inside the might of our horrid past oh so glorified...
Lost inside stale fables of men
Made to terrify, control and bride
Our hearts filled with love
Hands covered in pagans' blood
Oh when'll we take the fall?
For all that's been
So we can rise with meaning newly found
Inside our own hearts...


08. Temptation

A stolen glance in the moonlight
A subtle touch and I believe again
Trying to feel our wary steps
In the darkness that is sweet
Like the red wine on your lips
Just like the illusions that I'll miss
When finally all this slips away...

Dreaming under torrid ruins
The embers fade into the mist
And I could scream but I must pretend
The world hasn't changed
And I'm the same

But I know the distance will slowly withdraw
And dreams will fade away

...Still the shadows of hurtful doubts
Of they fill my sleepless nights...

Finally adrift in the shelter of dreams
All I see is the deceitful eyes of love...

Still your lies are sweeter than any truth I've heard
And so, for now, I don't even mind
Dreaming under torrid ruins...
