I can feel it deep inside my mind The air is hard to breathe, the price we pay for the human race Pressure is growing, burning wings Sidestepping leads, leads to the wrong side I can’t feel it deep inside my mind As vanishing point is coming, no gleam of way out Sometimes when I wake up, I don’t feel burden of time Coercions seem to have been buried New perspectives, clean sweep of past A sudden ache in my head brings me back to reality Veiling my visions into grim shades, ruining that seed of naivety Every time the same process occurs A mysterious signal inside my brain prevents from thinking otherwise, catches my dreams and freezes them All I’m supposed to do is looking straight ahead Numb in my work, far from strife, self strangling is my way of life I can’t find the reason why this fucking pain is gnawing me As the crisis’s getting over, a smell of guilt takes hold of me The border between good and evil haunts me again I know I blurt out the real questions But the less I search what controls me, the less I suffer I resign myself, undergo time running out I find comfort, numb in my consensual thoughts I resign myself, undergo time running out I find comfort, numb in my consensual thoughts I’m adrift I can’t find the reason why this fucking pain is gnawing me I’ve lost control of my brain Whatever I do, I feel so paralyzed This sickness embodied by a straight jacket, these better tomorrows I expect, are illusions All is fake Paralyzed (x4) The only thing I’m able to control is the moment when the stimulation crops up This pain is my secret sin, the proof that I’m alive Even for a few seconds, my futile existence’s getting sense I know I can die for it, but anyway it doesn’t frighten me I know I will die for it I know, it frightens me no more

Raindrops 05:55
Cracks through my skin, veins in the ground The sun is falling and I feel alone In a split of second, the blinking of an eyelid All that remains will be erased Time’s fading the colours of my feelings Burning my unsatisfied dreams Time’s spoiling the bonds I’ve woven Converting love into a smell unknown Best moments mixed in a weak breath I know I can’t deny my fate Facts and dreams, utopian or real Suddenly fixed and absorbed by nil Time’s fading the colours of my feelings Burning my unsatisfied dreams Time’s spoiling the bonds I’ve woven Converting love into a smell unknown Curtain’s falling, hope is buried So many ways, just one way out I won’t get the fruits of what I’ve sown The weight of our lives like gathered in raindrops Intended to fall following the wind one by one The weight of our lives like gathered in raindrops Intended to fall to their final destination Hitting the ground, the gates of beyond Feeding the land, the heart of the womb

I see it in your eyes I hear them from your mouth They mean nothing for me I know you won’t stop my way down All these words, stroking the crowd Selling safe illusions, demonizing to make consent Power belongs to the elite, the people who can see afar Trophies and liters of sweat reveal how brilliant you are How many hands did you shake? How many knives did you jab for high stakes? Staying on top of the fold requires some sacrifices I wonder how long this roundabout will work in our minds Any waking sign? You search new ways to seduce Obsessed of being trusted, as you trust no one, don’t you? They’re given laurels when we bear the scars We blurt out the meanings, absorbed by shooting stars Why should we search for a remedy when hope is on sale? Feel them dealing with your soul See them building blinding walls Feel them dealing with your soul See them building blinding walls We live between the flames, without seeking the culprit Swallow the soap they serve, don’t smell poison in it Don’t search for new ideas, it’s all been said We fight for our survival, but we’re already dead

Shining dawn then nice days keep visions made of grey away from ill-omened birds Just close your eyes and prey Light things I’ve ever heard Magnetic waves flood the streets, guided by voices I can’t get Crowd without face dressed for success Let’s find the sense on rainy days Take the distance Long time since I’ve not answered to a life that doesn’t speak, doesn’t speak for me I feel it gnawing me from the inside How long ‘til it carries me away I can’t wait for better tomorrows Why should they come as I keep on dying alone I’m still waiting, or just resigning Where are the dreams I’ve shaped? Should clean out my pockets full of regrets When I turn my back, I see what I’ve failed I’m looking forward Does future rhyme with fate? Throw me, throw me away Unleash my soul, feed my brain Show me, show me the way Forget my fall, and I’ll find an escape plan Bent in the wind, I lead out my scars where they won’t be suffered by nobody else I lead out my scars far, that place where light’s not supposed to fade

Vacuity 05:22
Waste of sincerity, never thought it could turn that way I’m losing my ability to believe the idea of better days My mind is strewed with corpses, my own dead bodies They’re flying above my head, Damocles sword-made I try to chase them away but they always come back, anyway, ready to transfix my heart when I’m straying My pride gives the illusion of being saved, but I lie in a thick smoke from where I can’t get out My marks, ephemeral and naïve, collapse as I shape my reasons to live Sick of those things I’ve trusted, left by meanings unreal, down in my shell, I’m still looking for a way to heal Sometimes I dream of a brainwash Emptiness seams painless I’d get rid in a glaring flash of these keepsakes Need to fall asleep find the vacuity Leave my ego trip for a lullaby My marks, ephemeral and naïve, collapse as I shape my reasons to live Sick of those things I’ve trusted, left by meanings unreal, down in my shell, I’m still looking for a way to heal Behind a mask, I’m filling with hate the wounds of the past The rests of my soul follow rivers leading to black holes, in search of oblivion Whether I reject my past or not, I fall prey to my troubled visions Maybe I’ll forget the facts or not, but I know the flaws in my perception My quest is vain, I can’t read between the lines I’ll be lured again like the first times Behind a mask, I’m filling with hate the wounds of the past The rests of my soul follow rivers leading to black holes, in search of oblivion There’s no way out
