The hangman in the mirror

lyrics

I can’t 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
