01. Take This Life

It's not so much the pain
It's more the actual knife
Pretending the picture is perfect,
I cut myself to sleep
I close my eyes for a second
And meet a fragile soul
I scream to hide that I'm lonely,
The echo calls my name

If I ever... if I never...
Make me understand the thought whatever
Make me see... make me be...
Make me understand you're there for me

Take this life
I'm right here
Stay a while and breathe me in

Take this life
I'm right here
Stay a while and breathe me in

The water drops
Just beg to hit me
Why now?
Haven't rained for days
No time to play hide and seek
I call upon you to take me on
Break me down to pieces
Put me back,
Do it right this time
Struggling to fill this empty stream
Burn my efforts in the end it means nothing

If I ever... if I never...
Make me understand the thought whatever
Make me see... make me be...
Make me understand you're there for me

Take this life
I'm right here
Stay a while and breathe me in

Take this life
I'm right here
Stay a while and breathe me in

These thougths burn a hole in my heart
These thoughts will keep me feeling

These thougths burn a hole in my heart
These thoughts will keep me feeling

If I ever... if I never...
Make me understand the thought whatever
Make me see... make me be...
Make me understand you're there for me

Take this life
I'm right here
Stay a while and breathe me in

Take this life
I'm right here
Stay a while and breathe me in


02. Leeches

Leeches
Like leeches
In Ignorance we trust
If you say this way, I'll take that way
Fuel for the fire on which I thrive

Spit me out
I'm glad I don't belong
Save me the speech [I know]
You'll be forgotten and gone

It burns, it rips, it hurts

Leeches, they preach to us
Words of wisdom from blocked minds

Spit me out
I'm glad I don't belong
Save me the speech [I know]
You'll be forgotten and gone

It burns, it rips, it hurts
They make you belive your turn
The chance of a lifetime,
How does it fell to be alive?

A tear for the poet that can't be heard
(And) praise the artist that steals

Spit me out
I'm glad I don't belong
Save me the speech [I know]
You'll be forgotten and gone

It burns, it rips, it hurts
They make you belive your turn
The chance of a lifetime,
How does it fell to be alive?


03. Reflect The Storm

Shot for shot
Let the bullet penetrate me
Embrace me
Tell me stories of golden gods
The precision in your voice
Pierce the walls that I've build
Your eyes reach deep in me

Take a chance
They don't come much bigger than this
Dark star, spend another day with me
A dead surface that doesn't reflect
The storm underneath
Take a chance
Bring me the calm

...And it leaves nothing

Expose the dark side,
Aching and emotional,
Expose the dark side,
Impossible to tame

Away from the light of the sun
Away I find what is really me

Throw yourself into the eye of chaos
Infiltrate me
Sneak out before I awake
Take out the trash and burn it
Try to find a beautiful place to lay
These fragile bones of mine.

Away from the light of the sun
Away I find what is really...

Away from the light of the sun
Away I find what is really me

...And it leaves nothing

Expose the dark side,
Aching and emotional,
Expose the dark side,
Impossible to tame
Impossible to tame

Away from the eye of the storm
Away I find what is really...

Away from the eye of the storm
Away I find what is really...

Away from the eye of the storm
Away I find what is really me


04. Dead End

Save all your prayers
I think we lost today
There's no morning after
No one's around to blame

I'm not afraid to bleed
But I won't do it for you
A star among hypocrites
The melody of our time

So say goodbye to the world
We are the dead that walk the earth

Scream your lungs out
Wait for laughter
You don't have to wait for ever
Here's the next disaster!

What decides when you've lost a war
When the first man falls
Or when they've erased it all

We're to numb to feel
The downfall starts right here
Hold your breath and swim
Swallowed by life's tear

In times of make believe,
No one really seems to care
Maybe I should care less
Cause I will die too

So say goodbye to the world
We are the dead that walk the earth

Scream your lungs out
Wait for laughter
You don't have to wait for ever
Here's the next disaster!

What will it take for us to realize
The more we provoke,
Winter will come twice

Save all your prayers
I think we lost today
There's no morning after
No one's around to blame

Scream your lungs out
Wait for laughter
You don't have to wait for ever
Here's the next disaster!

Scream your lungs out
Wait for laughter
You don't have to wait for ever
Here's the next disaster!


05. Scream

We are ordinary people,
We all live different lives
In the end we're pretty much the same
We're just living in different lies
We just live in different lies!

They scream, You scream, I scream
We scream but no one listens

Abuse to feel superior,
Is it working for you?

They scream, You scream, I scream
We scream

Abuse to feel superior,
Is it working for you?

We are ordinary people,
In a world build on stress
When we build walls around us
We end up in a mess

We end up in a mess
We end up in a mess

They scream, You scream, I scream
We scream but no one listens

Abuse to feel superior,
Is it working for you?

They scream, You scream, I scream
We scream

Abuse to feel superior,
Is it working for you?

We must live in different lies
We must live in different lies

They scream, You scream, I scream
We scream but no one listens

Abuse to feel superior,
Is it working for you?

They scream, You scream, I scream
We scream

Abuse to feel superior,
Is it working for you?


06. Come Clarity

Rushing through 30
Getting older every day
By two
Drawing pictures of innocent times
Could you add colour inside these lines?

I want you to lead me
Take me somewhere
Don't want to live
In a dream one more day

I want you to lead me
Take me somewhere
Don't want to live
In a dream one more day

Sure it would change my perspective
I'm certain I would change today
I'm certain it would change our ways
Would things fall into place?

I want you to lead me
Take me somewhere
Don't want to live
In a dream one more day

I want you to lead me
Take me somewhere
Don't want to live
In a dream one more day

I want you to lead me
Take me somewhere
Don't want to live
In a dream one more day

I want you to lead me
Take me somewhere
Don't want to live
In a dream one more day

Take me somewhere
Don't want to live
In a dream one more day

Take me somewhere
Don't want to live
In a dream one more day


07. Vacuum

The yesterday we loved.
Speak of tomorrow.
The burden of man is that time never takes a pause
We live from monday to sunday
But we forget what it means
Then a ghost comes to visit
And we tell stories from tabloids.

Call all your friends,
Watch fake photos
From a made up vacation.
Speaking in tongues about ancient artifacts.

We steal from beggars
And ask for understanding
Lie, rape, steal and murder
To make tonight's headlines

Trust the system.
Make your contribution.
Smile, applaud, love, hail.
The weaker you get, the stronger they become.

Listen in silence.
Hear her voice.
How far are we ready to take this?

Listen in silence.
Hear her voice.
Before it all crumbles.

Lie, rape, steal and murder
Smile, applaud, love, hail.

Gather in front of the TV.
Exploding sympathy.
The weatherman, our trust,
Our punctual company

We steal from beggars
And ask for understanding
Lie, rape, steal and murder
To make tonight's headlines

Trust the system.
Make your contribution.
Smile, applaud, love, hail.
The weaker you get, the stronger they become.

Lie, rape, steal and murder
Smile, applaud, love, hail.

Listen in silence.
Hear her voice.
How far are we ready to take this?

Listen in silence.
Hear her voice.
Before it all crumbles.


08. Pacing Death's Trail

Compassion.
Confession.
It's all a compromise.

Dedication.
Domination.
Please define the lines.

Irritation.
Innovation.
Pair up to succeed.

Totaliation.
Termination.
Fake smiles and greed.

Surrender to nothing.
Or run, as far as you can
I'm trying to hold on to what I believe in,
But my heart is in a coma!

Aggression.
Attention.
A need to be seen.

Directed.
Disrespected.
Stand in a line to be thankful
Obscene

Surrender to nothing.
Or run, as far as you can
I'm trying to hold on to what I believe in,
But my heart is in a coma!

Surrender to nothing.
Or run, as far as you can
I'm trying to hold on to what I believe in,
But my heart is in a coma!

Surrender to nothing.
Or run, as far as you can
I'm trying to hold on to what I believe in,
But my heart is in a coma!


09. Crawl Through Knives

The dark black hole forever mine.
I need the fear.
Push me out
All be brave
Show me signs
Should I feel shame for the questions that I have with you?

If you could be
The things I need.
(I'll crawl through knives
An inch per tear.)
These knees, they bleed for you.
(Let the colour persuade the hate
That you fear.)

Feed the lie.
Force the reason.
Leave me in doubt.
Need some motivation

It's in my hands.
The sky, so bright.
It's burning.
It's for me to decide.
If flames will reach heaven tonight.
It's in my hands.

Nailed to the floor
Paralyzed
Emotions drifting
Searching the new

If you could be
The things I need.
(I'll crawl through knives
An inch per tear.)
These knees, they bleed for you.
(Let the colour persuade the hate
That you fear.)

It's in my hands.
The sky, so bright.
It's burning.
It's for me to decide.
If flames will reach heaven tonight.

It's in my hands.
The sky, so bright.
It's burning.
It's for me to decide.
If flames will reach heaven tonight.

It's in my hands.
The sky, so bright.
It's burning.
It's for me to decide.
If flames will reach heaven tonight.
It's in my hands.

It's in my hands.
The sky, so bright.
It's burning.
It's for me to decide.
If flames will reach heaven tonight.


10. Versus Terminus

When all is said and done
We'll know what's right, what's wrong
But does it matter then
When all is said and done

When all is dead and gone
We'll know who lost, who won
But does it matter then
When all is dead and gone

See everything go
End of all things
The life that we know
Shift your point of view
You've been warned
This one way ticket is for you

When all the lights go out
We know what life's about
But does it matter then
When all the lights go out

When all the laughter dies
We'll see nothingness and realize
But does it matter then
When all the laughter dies

See everything go
End of all things
The life that we know
Shift your point of view
You've been warned
This one way ticket is for you

When all the laughter dies
We'll see nothingness and realize
But does it matter then
When all the laughter dies

See everything go
End of all things
The life that we know
Shift your point of view
You've been warned
This one way ticket is for you


11. Our Infinite Struggle

In a disaster story
A central confilct of primal rage
Usual sort of desperation
Characters remain the same

Never cut you out,
I cut you in

Feeding on life leftovers
I am writing to you
You should realize
It hurts in me, too

Walk on broken glass
Is the pain safe at the end?
All the elements in life's complexity
Make our struggle infinite

Never cut you out,
I cut you in

Feeding on life leftovers
I am writing to you
You should realize
It hurts in me, too

All the elements in life's complexity
Make our struggle infinite

Never cut you out,
I cut you in

Feeding on life leftovers
I am writing to you
You should realize
It hurts in me, too

Feeding on life leftovers
I am writing to you
You should realize
It hurts in me, too


12. Vanishing Light

Vanishing light
The end of a compromise
In fury, in rage
A dream will diminish

Behind enemy lines
Learn to survive
Find a way to clone
Make friends and place a to call home

Take a picture and jump before we crash
Take a picture and jump before we crash

Slide away
Learn your ways and fire when ready
This is a race
To no mans land
But who knows the direction?

You're on the easy route
Money up front?
There's no doubt

Take a picture and jump before we crash
Take a picture and jump before we crash

Slide away
Learn your ways and fire when ready
This is a race
To no mans land
But who knows the direction?

It's so sad
But pay no mind!

Take a picture and jump before we crash
Take a picture and jump before we crash

Slide away
Learn your ways and fire when ready
This is a race
To no mans land
But who knows the direction?


13. Your Bedtime Story Is Scaring Everyone

Find time and play with innocence
Like you ever would
I don't see you make any sense
I guess you deliver misery
Just like you should

1 o'clock and you paint the skies grey
It's not your fault
We're the ones who betray
But how can you say it with such ease
You want to take a stand or just wanna please

Your bedtime story is scaring everyone
But you make me understand
The evil that man do
The evil that man do
