01. Absolution (Element Of The Ensemble III)

As I am following your footprints in the dead of night
The fog is thickening the air and as the rain falls down
I feel your presence nearby and as I search the grounds
I see you trembling with fear lying on the ground

I walk up to you, look into your eyes
I see pain and sorrow and that you will never rise
Regretting all events that you have lived 'till this day
There's no turning back, nothing you could do nor say

The understanding of certain decisions
May sometimes be difficult
A fear which could last all eternity
I enter your mind, see the world from your eyes

I reach out, touch your soul: I close my eyes to feel
The rumbling pain that runs within you, which now cannot be healed
Our minds are correlated in space of tranformed state
Your body levitates by my hand, I read your thoughts at infinite rate.

The understanding of certain decisions
May sometimes be difficult
A fear which could last all eternity
I enter your mind, see the world from your eyes

You seek forgiveness from God and people surrounding
You've just realized the pain and sorrow you have given
Love was something you were getting, never giving
Now your soul is forever scarred and weakened

Soon, you will understand the time has come today
For you to learn from your mistakes, for you to learn the ways
Willing to see through the heart, beauty and brightness of the mind
Knowing how to use the sight, the ability to find.

The understanding of certain decisions
May sometimes be difficult
A fear which could last all eternity
I enter your mind, see the world from your eyes

Chemical sorting and pair creation
Intervention takes place, memory to ashes
The mind reborn, you seek your true purpose
It lies within you...
I feel peace within as your soul meets a new world
A world where you may step up to a higher learning
Take my hand and walk down the path of forgiveness


02. Dysgenics

Think you've got the control?
A string of words I've heard before
Tread the path, walk the line
You let yourself believe the lies
Your whole life is just an empty shell
Abandoned soul, angel from hell

Eyes fixed on you
I see your thoughts pierce the darkness
Words flow from the wounds
Bring to life the lifeless
No image can replace, the dark fall from your grace
Dreams last as long as it takes to remember
They always fade

When all is said and done
You'll see that there's still only one
Pain you caused, hate you filled
There's not much left of you so called will
So now you look, and now you find the truth in a cesspool of lies

Wake up, you're in disorder
Wake up, you've got nothing to give

Eyes fixed on you
I see your thoughts pierce the darkness
Words flow from the wounds
Bring to life the lifeless
No image can replace, the dark fall from your grace
Dreams last as long as it takes to remember
They always fade


03. Hunter/Killer

On the twilight of life, the sky shed tears
Knowing too well of what lay ahead
Fate revealed

Pale shadows danced as the night caught fire
No turning back, one glance ahead
What was void now turns to red

Responsiblity discarded
A snake always sheds it's skin
Push away the pain we cause
Live to sin, we are

Hunter/killer
Blinded by our hate, deafened to cries
Hunter/killer
Only one has the right to survive
Hunter/killer

Faith in conviction of lies
When all that's left is a sigh
Then we'll wonder why no one asked why

A truth that cuts deeper than the lies that bind
Souls hardwired to serve one god
Backbone made of fear tranlates to lack of control

Responsiblity discarded
A snake always sheds it's skin
Push away the pain we cause
Live to sin, we are

Hunter/killer
Blinded by our hate, deafened to cries
Hunter/killer
Only one has the right to survive
Hunter/killer

Faith in conviction of lies
When all that's left is a sigh
Then we'll wonder why no one asked why

Torn apart who can we look to for answers?
One more loss will bring is closer to the edge
Unwritten chapter, a final tale
Are we the only one's who cannot comprehend?

Can't you see we've only just begun
No second chance, there's only one
No turning back, what's done is done

Look into the eyes of madmen
Pools of blackness lie beyond
Drowning the soul, drowning cries

Ties that blind, lineage that's last so long
Must be overcome before
Time is revoked, curtains fall


05. Let It Burn

So many things are hidden
A question that has no rhyme
Walking in a circle
Too many things we can't define

Wandering thoughts
Wonder what thet must mean
Mind finds no peace
The whole keeps going, can't be seen

We try to find our way out
There's no escape from a mixed up life
We keep trying to push on
Just gotta let it burn

Let it burn
We gotta keep trying to push on
Let it burn

Existence lined
With diligence it should make sense
So simple it cannot be
So empty it ends up dead

Choking
Seething
We suffocate ourselves in shame
Running from our dreams

We try to find our way out
There's no escape from a mixed up life
We keep trying to push on
Just gotta let it burn

You feel that there's no way out
That there's no refuge for you
You feel that there's no way out
That there's no end in sight

To win you've got to shine
Taste the life inside
No holding back

Past regrets can't breath
If not allowed to seize
A lifetime full of promise

Exquisite painting hides
Mistakes and first drawn lines
The colors that have run
The canvas that has turn dry

Never do
Never cry
These are the words of those
Who never had the guts to try

We try to find our way out
There's no escape from a mixed up life
We keep trying to push on
Just gotta let it burn

Let it burn
We gotta keep trying to push on
Let it burn

Time has a way of forgetting
All the times we took wrong turns
No need to keep on reliving
Ready to burn

Take a chance

Just gotta keep pushing on
No need to keep on reliving
Gotta let it burn


07. On The Shores Of Ithaka

In our minds eye...
Certainty, all powerful
Beyond blindness and fear
Confident fused with vanity
Arrogant, propelled by scorn

Foresight, relegated to beg in the streets with despair, caution, forever lagging behind the horizon

As we sail from day into night's web
Tich with deceit of a tender embrace

And a knife to the heart!

Blurry eyed we strain
Seeing a different reality

Each visions at odds with the truth
Never again in reach so obvious to the ones
Less myopic

Each vision as our minds blind to The impending doom
Guided by our misguided way

We plow on, sight hollowed out
Visions blunted by web of deceit

Thick with contempt with most vocal burn blessed, with scorn
Others hope it goes away and...

Let it happen
Word collide, worlds shatter
Opinions are cheap
Fed by ignorance

And there is the paradox

How do we reach utopia
Our shores of ithaka

If we move in the opposite direction
While trying.

On the shore, of ithaka..


09. I Believe

One belief that gave rise to a nation
Etched in our history
A future carved in stone

Foundation of what was
Yet to come to light
A people reduced to slaves
Never given the right to say

I believe
I believe you can never take that away
I believe I cannot lie blind
To fight for a right to be
I will give my life
Believe

With dove amongst a murder of crows
A martyr in disguise wearing a robe of gold

Outstretched arm hides
Cracked smile lies
Pleasant words try
But no one can deny that

I believe
I believe you can never take that away
I believe I cannot lie blind
To fight for a right to be
I will give my life
Believe

Beneath the star, the battle lines are drawn tonight
A child runs for cove, holds his mother tight
To take a life comes too easily
How can one live when you must die for your beliefs

Can't control myself
I see something else
Gotta control myself
Take me away

Gotta speak my mind
Too many walking blind
Gonna have to speak my mind
I believe


10. Mute Requiem

Over there lies the body, of false hopes and unfulfilled desires.
It inspires only loathing

Silence, irony, becomes it's only testimony,
Contrary to the envisioned outcome and the desired result

Pity, this final outcry for sympathy
Committed with such self-indulgent finality, is doomed to failure.
So pathetic, unreversable and blind...

Irony and contempt
For the failed life
Seems fitting of this Mute Requiem...

Emptiness cries out my name!
Emptiness cries out my name
In vain

As I turn my back and walk away
Maggots assemble
To begin their song


11. Cadences Of Absonance

Here I stand

On the shores of abandomnent,
Waves quietly at my feet.

All I see is venom!
Venom is all I see, surrounding me!

Venom!

Oddly it sooths me, quiets my needs
New answers rush at me.

With hateful vengeance, I throw my soul away, conclusions might as well be carved out in stone, In a flash of clarity from exiled sanity
My mute witness and detested consort with singularity of my purpose

It quiets my mind!
Sinful ecstasy feeds my skin!
As I throw my soul away!
Twisted logic of foul play

Here I stand of sound body and foul mind
Composing my manifesto of silence.
A twisted requiem by the mute for the deaf.
A lunatics symphony of absonance
Discordant cadences of a chaotic mind.

It quiets my mind!
Sinful ecstasy feeds my skin!
As I throw my soul away!
Twisted logic of foul play.

I threaten the universe with murder and rape
In hope of obtaining some sort of reaction.
Lucidity purged
By fever thick with hate, chaos, deceit and other peoples pain

Here I stand throwing fists at the sky
Ready to claw back
What is rightfully mine
Amidst the ignorance of the stillborn world about me.
