01. Phantoms

I guess I just can't talk about the simple things
Something drives me further than that
Maybe like a cold desert wind
Maybe like a sinking ship

And I seem so alive in this skin
But I'm really empty inside
It's not something i like to explain
It's just the way it has come to be

What are we now?
Hands in the air like a sinking ship
What are we now?
Phantoms of progress
of time and of space

I and my own have been left here alone
Or maybe no one was ever beside us
And the ghosts we have always believed in
Are just the remains of a gypsy wind

And some days I dream of a life on the other side
But what could it's meaning conceive?
Heaven and hell are just names of a suffering
Maybe it just starts all over again

There must be something I'm missing
Something I just cannot find


02. Only This (And Nothing More)

We all fear the word extinction
So we bite the hand that feeds
The same teeth that clean our neighbors
Father pery we eat

Drifting in the hollow heavens
It's always more than we can see
And all the children scream to someone
starving on defeat

Only this and Nothing more
Only what we care to see
Only this and Nothing more
Shall be lifted evermore

What are the names they call you?
Copulation short of steel
Like parasites we hate to shelter
Mother pray we heal

Feel the burial in my chest
Kiss the unborn skin
Words like fucking helter skelter
Lonely razors in the wind

Have we finally gone too far?
Nothing more to bleed
And now these daggers lay before me
All I'll ever need


03. Midnight Dreams

Welcome to this world
Transformation supreme
I am sleepless from the power in my veins

My past is gone
Incantation serene
Entering the threshold of a pure disease

These Midnight Dreams
Stolen from god
Just to make you believe
In these Midnight Dreams

No longer pain
Damnation in me
My body fits the guise of infamy
Cleanse myself within
Discard this bitter skin

you here at my side
Look into these lupine eyes
It can't be so far away
Nothing can keep me chained

Nothing left to hide
Alienation complete
What I am is all I'll ever need

The time is short
Humans are weak
Breaking down the doors inside of me


04. Together And Wither

The only answer is annihilation
Everything taken from the eternal fountain
Ungrateful beasts
Demanding more than should have ever been given

Blind to our own transgressions
We've condoned this atrocity
The problem only multiplies
Darkness begetting darkness

We've lost our hold
Giving Up is easiest
A sea of Hatred

Apprehension and fear make our decisions
Allowing innocent lives to be lost
Searching for harmony
We stick to our own
While others try to divide

I'm afraid that now it is too late
The only thing left now is to huddle
Together And Wither


05. Elysium

Slipping forward
With a propensity for madness
Tethered but taut
Reality at the tip of four fingers
Or is it insanity?
Yesterday was my tomorrow
But today is my problem
Do i know what i know?
Do i think what i think?
It has never left my side
Nor ever left me alone
But always eludes me
My elysium


06. These Are The Nameless

It's devastation that we've taken
Shaping form with faceless smiles
Laying to waste all the miles
And hours of memories like fading bells

Soil and sodden we kiss the ground
Below the nameless tears of trees
Weeping in their forgotten willows
The eyes that cry like wishing wells

These are the nameless
Better beware
These are the nameless
Faces we wear

And know that we are ever there
Inside the room you lay your bed
In everything you've ever said
And every fire you've ever fed

Secrets hidden from the light
Buried in our children's hearts
Immortal now they dream the dreams
That no one thought they could conceive


07. Chapel Of Burning

Alive here be another's choice
I return the gift to my maker
Relinquish the pain
Of the intimate stranger

Sing with golden tongue
For my brother's eternal rest
He was me and I was he
In these halls of sorrow

In this chapel of burning
Whisper to me

Worn out memories burn
He's calling to me again
Like a passing friend
bowing at my window

In this chapel I burn
My soul's true dark home
Beckoning endless tears
that mystic figure i fear

The autumn dance of fire
the faces laugh alone
To meet me tomorrow


08. Concern

Losing my grip on concern
The endless circle mocks my existence
Only sparks of beauty bind me to this plane

The simplicity of doing-drowned
And now you know why I die
I've found the fear deep inside

Motivation no longer a factor
Only sparks of hope push me away

Cretins of wishful thinking
We delude ourselves
Aspirations reaching no fruition

Where is it that we go?
What is it that we seek?
What is it that we want?
Why do we receive what we receive?

Trying to exists within the walls of reality
But what's the point?
the universe revolves alone

Talking to myself the words get lost
Shimmering sparkles catch my eye
And slowly fade
