01. Old Days Born Anew

With the old days born anew
A massive gathering of onlookers
Sending birds to shelter the shipwrecked
With feathers of dust and wind
Emerging from the fiery fields

We're all being stepped on like insects
A million minds weeping
This boundless energy
This synergy
it's better contained

We are so free
And what a superb absence is our soul
Desire is a liar
Blueprint of mankind's weakness

Absolute absolution
Criticize criticism

We are weighed down every moment
By the merciless sensation of time
This is an epidemy
Without remedy
It's better contained

Evolve, so free
And what a superb absence is our soul
Resolve this mirroring, wondering
We believe in the signs

Into the depths of the unknown
Only there you will find something new

What are you running from?
Obsession? What are you running from?

There are moments of existence
When time and space are more profound
And the awareness of existence
Is immensely heightened

This is the war of creation
And time becomes a murderer
Murderer!
Bring me consolation
Then we'll talk
Inconsistent copy
Abductor of every art form
Eyes can't see what's beyond
And the wind is silent

So from the mould
Scarlet and gold
A bulb will rise
A newborn
Bring him consolation
Then he will bless us
Give him a Judas kiss and
Face the consequence
Eyes can't see what's beyond

So long, my serenity
Lost in a conversation
Build these towers upside down
Lost in this constellation
And the wind is silent

This is the war of creation
And time becomes a murderer
Murderer!
Bring me consolation
Then we'll talk
Inconsistent copy
Abductor of every art form
Eyes can't see what's beyond
And the wind is silent


02. The Sun's Architect

I've met my past
And my shadow just followed me home
He screamed at the sun
The piercing light would undo him

True wanderer
Only thrive when you're inside
Behold the transformation

I've struck a nerve here
I'm caught adrift on a lonely breeze
Unable to swim ashore
Boundless thoughts will carry you

Daylight glints through every seem
And paints upon my skin
Sunburn, burn me, sunburn

Between the lifeless and senseless
Between these gray mountain peaks
Beneath the frozen ground
I'm lost

Contract to seclusion
From sigh to storm
I'm born again
Walking backwards
Towards my sins
Black hole brother
Catch me

Whisper away
These rivers of doubt
I'm kept awake by sound
Of mumbling mouths
Speaking of the true you

And landscapes, scarred and ravaged
Shiver, scare away the crows

Burn away the sun
Burn away the center
Burn away the sun

The dusk is near
My eyes paint black lines
Upon the horizon
A grim sight

While needles of light
Pierce the face that lies face down

I try to stand up
And face my shadow
But he's hidden
By the light

I try to stand up
And face myself
But I'm hidden
In the shadow

True wanderer
Only thrive when you're inside
Behold the transformation


03. Awake

Man down
This hardened shell is broken
My fate
Is bound to what I've done
Regrets
I shuffle down the hallway
Precious time
It's all gone overboard

Here is your calm down
Here is your calm down pill
I'll never be the same
It'll never be the same

With eyes wide open
My body's floating down the river
This life
What have I confined you for?
It's all inside
It's all in silence

When the raven gets its way
A million thoughts are swept away
And then you leave it all
You leave it all behind

And maybe next time we'll meet again
And maybe I'll be less of a bitter man
When I feel more

I refuse to pay the ferryman
I'm so attached to my temple
He has to burn it down to get me
Ebony demon, shriek all you want
I'm not tagging along

The shade, the burning blackness
It is my protector
Fear before the fall
I can't grasp it all
But at least I'm trying

A light, a smoldering cinder
Getting colder, ashen
And letting all this go
I'm not letting go
I'm not really done here

I won't let
I won't let go

Life's to short to be wrong

And maybe next time we'll meet again
And maybe I'll be less of a bitter man
And if I could do it all over again
I'd be the same man all over again
When I feel more


04. Laments Of An Icarus

Now it's always been a riddle
Misanthrope, you always pursued a valid reason
You know, to be wrong with a reason
You are what you are
But your ever present subliminal self bends the black
You sleep so tight but dreamless
Facing forward

Dawn's edge, the supplement to destiny's ender
You smother all the words you have never said
With a mouth filled with empathy
Words can be an enemy
You can never say you're sorry 'cause you're a pretender

Unpretend
Fall from grace
Unconcealed
Just a phase

Summer's bruise
Turn a wrench
Bottled thoughts
Blind eye stare

Look out of the window
You stare in the face of a widow
Drink up, like a lover
You recreate all that's over

The turn of the tide
You're used up
Just take it like a man,
All you must do is confess
The truth is a knife
You are but one

One straight answer

What is it?
Sculpture of an obsession
A sound so profound it sings you back to hell
The system's architecture
Frames the antidote's gift
Winter
Summer cycle moves erratic
Follow me, Aphrodite

Faithless
The one broken
The one who can bend a spoon with his will
Bow down

Here's my antidote

Priceless
Honest
Reaction (come on, come on)
Take it
Take it
More

Just another day in the rain
And a sure shot inside the game
Walk the dead man directly to his grave
Without mourning, without nothing
Be the same

Divide by numbers, all uncovered
Narrowed down from three to none my brother
And the nearest beacon cries "I'm sober"
But the truth remain unspoken

Cynic without anger
And a lover without passion
And a fighter with a complex

Worship your own cancer
And a lesson without meaning
It a lesson for the feeble

Branded by all-in-one frights
Antagonist, become my downfall
I'm just a man and I can't grasp it all


05. One Eye For A Thousand

Eyes
A thousand eyes waiting below the waves
Because above the rain burns
My past becomes a lie

Goodbye sense of awareness
I drink adrenaline

Like mother's milk
It soothes me

Remove all that I trust
All I'm ashamed for
State of remission
I feed of the vulture

I'm left breathless
The battle is lost

One step takes a thousand miles
One black circle where I expected sun
One blind spot
One eye for a thousand eyes
Where I begun
Underwater
I'm reborn

I got stuck in the nether on a lonely cloud
While the heat burns my feathers
We're all homeward bound
With a roar I dive down and I greet the seas
With words from an opiate verse

I am waiting for
One hand to raise a thousand fists
One moment caught in a thousand times
One blind spot
One eye for a thousand eyes
One place to long for
And I surrender to my pride

I got stuck in the nether on a lonely cloud,
While the heat burns my feathers
We're all homeward bound
With a roar I dive down and I greet the seas
Goodbye

These eyes have seen the abyss
This mouth has told a thousand lies

My hands are washed in guilt and
I face my own reflection's flight

What are you waiting for?

You are left with
Nothing


06. State Of Disobedience

Meet your shadow-self
Your dynamic demon side
Pleased to meet you
Are you the rebel or the fool?

Inspiration or regression?
These dark waters are treacherous!
'Cause you never run, never will
Never dream fast enough
To beat the runner

Jester's chronic laughter
Static discharge failure
Violence
Failsafe system running erratic
Cleanse me,I'm filthy
Heartbeats sing a song of change and
With sleep come the spoils
The nearing dawn yawns
With glistering teeth
My body shakes like the rattlesnakes tail

Hear the bones
They rattle and shatter the silence
with words of comfort
Hear the spurs
The breathing of the nameless horse
Spewing breath like fire
A momentary stirring of this poisoned air

Like machines
We march in line
And fight our shadow
In the dark

We are scattered and bewildered
Lights flicker in the eyes of the beast
We're all teeth, all primal, all hungry
We've never been so awake

The moon is turning red you see
We're impatient
I'd kill for you

Uncontrolled visions
Of seconds ticking away
It's not today
Like a lover you wait
I'm so tired, so damn tired
Dark is the moon
Clouding judgement

Hear the bones
They rattle and shatter the silence
with words of comfort
Hear the spurs
The breathing of the nameless horse
Spewing breath like fire
A momentary stirring of this poisoned air

Take the best of what's to come
And cast it away
To never look back
Cloven hoofs echo in the dark
I'm bound to this dream

I'm so afraid
To break down and dissipate
I'm awake.


07. Storm Warning

In pain there's a lesson
In blood there's a slithering form traveling
Through the veins
Through the body
Amending
Burnt skin and broken bones
Don't deny it
We're all snakes at first
And then we change again

We are the strangers of today
Reach out, forever in the dark

In pain there's a moment
In blood there's a final story written
So the better you make me
I'm less man and more machine
Engaged in guessing
I'm lost for words
I'm never gone
I'll reach out for the serpent

We are the strangers of today
Reach out for the serpent
Washing the dirt of ages away
Reach out for the serpent

Ask yourself
Is this worth a reversed evolution?
We're acting like a tidal wave
Crushing all that oppose us
Higher, higher, higher

Face the final legendary
Terminal new world disorder
Pain has an hypnotizing voice
And it calls your name
Higher, higher, higher

So you want steady
You're gonna get steady
So you want unsteady
You're gonna get unsteady

Look away
Eyes turn black
It's raining now
It's angry now
Clawing its way out
And then I shove the sun into the light
The silence comes
My freedom comes from inside

Tension relieved

I shove the light into the sun
The silence comes
Reach out for the serpent

I shove the sun into the light
The silence comes
My freedom comes from inside

And I save myself from you
Rescue me now
And you'll find your way back home
To find what you look for

Nothing
I said nothing
I guess I've always been stuck on the wrong side
Snakehead
You can't see me
Wherever I go
You go along

Break it
I said break it
Destruction will bring something new to the spectrum
Poison
Suck the poison
Wherever you go
I go along


08. Messengers

Here I wander aimlessly
Divided like a restless sea
I remember
Messengers

Sifting through the boiling sand
Looking for a shaken hand
Wading through the mire
But never find what they desire
Hear my voice calling

A butterfly caught
Invisible wall
Keep away from light
I'm speechless
I'm fearless
I keep myself from running low on air

I'm a passenger
I'm just passing by
Walk with me

I'm a passenger
I'm not supposed to be here
Roads in one direction
All lead to where I'll be

Here I wonder endlessly
A story told uneasily
I remember
Messengers

Smell the scent of every season
How dark they might be
This old monster has its reasons
I am finally free
Stay with me now

See what you have done, creator
There's no great escape
Still hunger
I'm forsaken
I turn to the messengers


09. To Erase A Lifetime

Here's my only dream
While I breathe dopamine
My creature's cunning
It walks the road between sense and amphetamine

Clearly and ominous presence
Seraphs belong only to the ones who wait
I can feel it combine me
Merging all of my instincs with the withering beast

We dance around in a ring and suppose
But the secret sits in the middle and knows
Skies are ashen, dim summer stench
Uncontrollable aesthetics relapse this twilight as dawn

Faster, suppressor
A silent storm approaching
Behold a black-chalked figurine
It speaks to me in tongues
I resist my dislocation
Automatic integration of forgotten flaws and imperfections
Amplification of this endlessness
These words form a knife of cold
And pierce the heart of the unloving echoes of departure
My will bends as a twig in the wind

Decipher unwritten laws of coded existence
I'm naked in the cold

Strangely amused by conformity
Caught with a strange desire
I'm both promise and lie

Build to receive
Conductor of hours
A clockwork
A grim device built to undo
Erase a lifetime
Creator of ends

Now death sets a thing significant,
The eye had hurried by
Years become a second when thoughts collide with memories
The stitches stopped themselves
And then it was put among the dust

The center of self
Equation of life
The less you resist
The less you're erased

I fear the ghosts of all that would be
There is no closure
I heed the call of millions of others who fight the giant
One second alone has brought me thunder

The center of self
Equation of life
The less you resist
The less you're erased
