02. Architect Of Fortune

Conscious all day
Cautious in my own way
Coincidence seems oh so
Strange and my actions
Are estranged
Unconscious but still awake
Things that are by chance
Seem to always break

"I Mever knew I could map
Out my life
Destined to live each and
Every day
Aware of what will come
Deep down inside I do have
All the answers
My misfortune
My burden in life
Is to know what will come
Nothing comes undone
Predict and prevail
That's me...."

A skilled mechanic
The artificer of destiny
An inner panic of knowing
What will become of me
Predict the Future and my
Eyes the only ones to see
A heavy burden of endless
Possibilities
Misled by god, endowed
Immense Qualities

Imprints of guilt, A repenting
Soul inside of me
My own misfortune
A lack of capability
A great success
Or a minor Probability

A wound that will never
Leave a scar
A pain that won't go away
You still don't know who
You really are
Wise words gone astray...

Every choice, every thought,
Every step, stumbling in my
Own feet
Every word, every sentence,
Every line, everyone comes
Undone


03. Namaste

Carelessness at war
You follow your own orders
With no regards
You trespass all borders
You grind whatever flesh
The War-Mill requires
As you take off your mask
My sympathy expires.

Salutations!
I greet you, I plead to you
My Nation!
Now I bow to you
Our Religion!
Deny it or succumb to it
One decision!
It's always up to you

We witness the stronghold
Of double standards
With the whole world in
The front row seats
Tune in to your favorite
Channel and watch the
Ultimate defeat
When we are in that place
We are one

Namaste
Bow before me brothers
Show your respect
Then create devastation
In the name of peace

Here I stand before you
I'll bleed for you
And die for you

Namaste
Bow before me brothers
Show your respect
Then create devastation
In the name of peace
Show me your strength
And together we die
Forever we will live


04. Game Of Life

If we could sense each other
In the presence of another
Just for one day
Would it make a difference anyway
If I knew what you were thinkin'
I wouldn't bother wasting my time
I'd spend my day being out of harms way

There's no success without will
What you gain ain't free in life
It isn't where you come from,
It's where you're going that counts
You get back into the saddle again
Ride alongside lifes rain
And walk out as the winner
When you own the game

Would you live with it or let it go
Will you remember it all
With only one goal
When time catches up with you
Then I'll know what you'll do?
You'll keep living a lie don't you know?

Now place your bets on this game
And never let the scornful doubts
Of disbelievers
Have your spirit put to shame
You know what you have found
So close your eyes for the second round

Live it or let it go
Remember it all, if only one goal
Then time catches up with you
And there is no more to do
In the life that was you


05. Reach Within

Don't live a life caught in shadows
Our eyes will miss out on what's here
For us
That colors our minds with intensions
That leads us to choose and take the
Path less traveled by
Just reach within and shed your skin
Don't be afraid if it leaves a scar
Sometimes it might take you far

Stand your ground
It's time to face your fears
Now become the one You've locked away
For years
Looking back you've always found
A reason
For the easy way out
Your life in a reflection

There comes a time when we need
The answers
There comes a time when we're
All alone
Although we're bound to this together
You'll have to walk the path alone

I never told you that it would be easy
I never told you I would be around
To save you from yourself
Now you see all the whys
It's time you make your own decisions
And let me go

There comes a time when we need
The answers
There comes a time when we're
All alone
Although we're bound to this
together
You'll have to walk the path alone
I never told you that it would be easy
And now you see all the whys
It's time you make your own decisions
And let me go


06. I Am

I'm searching for a place to land
You have my life unguarded
Like the deserts miss the rain
I feel the pain

I reach to you my weary hand
A petty man so blinded
Can't wait for you to understand

It's just who I am...
Reaching deep, and if I can
The I will know...
Underneath my skin it will show

Although I've have been wounded
I know that time will heal
The scars we bear
And that we'll make them our own

I reach to you my weary hand
A petty man so blinded
Can't wait for you to understand
I need to know...

Who I am...
Reaching deep, and if I can
Then I will know...
The stream of life will flow
With judging eyes
Who'll pass the test
Unlike before, distinct from the rest
I'm touching down on naked ground
Then walk away without a sound

I'll try my best to realize
All too often I've tried to change
Destination known like the back
Of my hand
And still with every time when it slipped
Out of range
The trace it left remained unchanged
A fragile trust... in faith I lust

I reach to you my weary hand
A petty man so blinded
I can't wait for you to understand
I need to know...


07. Used

I never thought I'd live to know
This feeling
A stream of emotions flowing
Through me
I Used to think that I would learn
How to forget
Please help me through
The days without regrets

Define or defeat you
Me and I about to collide
I used to hope for a miracle
Decide and fend for me
Like all hope was lost
So I'll get used to the pain of being used

Everything felt and looked transparent
I'm starving from the lack of myself
I'm suffering around my own well being
Please someone help me through
And take away the pain

I used to think that this was as good as it could get... being used

Define myself
It feels like I'm going nowhere
I used to hope for a miracle
Decide for myself
It seemed like all hope was lost
So I got used to the pain
Of being used


08. The One

I try to be what you wanted me to be
But sometimes it ain't easy
... Being me
Don't ask me where I'm going
Who I'm with and what we did
Your blinding third degree
Interrogations
Is pulling me down
Don't need a rainy day
I can hear the people screamin'
Everybody calls my name

Every now and then
I feel like I am drowning

You go down on your knees
Just because you wanna make me
Forget how it really feels
You blame it all on me
One after another
Listen "My Friend" I am not the
Only one

I tried to be what you wanted
Me to be
You thought my life was easy
You could not foresee
I'm not your leaf clover
That you carry around
I'm not a wheel of fortune
I'm not your lucky charm
I'm painted on your wall
You want me in the family tree
I can hear the people screamin'
Everybody wants to see

Every now and then
You'd see me drowning

How do we choose right from wrong
When we don't know which battles
We should end
Who do we trust when the need of a
Friend is what matters the most
Does it make it right to invade
Our lives
And breach down the fences around us
You saved the trees, the polluted seas
Still you won't be the one...
The one they'll remember


09. Burn After Reading

When did it come to this
These drained emotions
I feel guilty for not being inspired
I can see you reaching out to me
But I leave you floating
After I am free of you
I should be missing what we had
In loving memory
To whom do I turn for a new beginning
All alone do I trust with this task
Of solace
In loving memory

I have lost the power to feel
Turned to stone
My heart blackened

I should have seen what was good
Not been so easily blinded
All that glitters isn't gold

Every shimmering rock I've collected
kept weighing me down
Pulling me to the ground
All that I have left of us is a memory
A picture of you and me
Have I forsaken my destiny

I have lost the power to feel
Turned to stone
My heart is bleeding
I should have seen what was good
Not been so easily blinded
All that glitters isn't gold


10. Last Goodbye

It all came down the other day
I was waiting for the call
Hoping they would say
"Everything is gonna be all right"
And you would come home tonight
I've been having bad dreams since the
Day the "news" arrived
Been living in hope and facing the fear
Of losing you and have my life deprived

I can see the pain in your eyes
And the hell your going through
And if I could I would sacrifice
And give my life for you
No here we are at the end of our road
It's time to say our goodbyes
Last breath of life, with a silent cry

I remember the walks we had
The nights we never slept
I remember the time when you
turned and said to me

I will always love you
I will never let you go
In my heart that's where you follow
Now it's time for you to know
There were times my heart was aching
There were times I thought I'd make it
On my own... This is my last goodbye

I see the cloudless skies
Inside my soul it cries


Some say it's like autumn breeze
Some say it's just a game we play
I believe it will go away
But until that day
I would be here in my own misery
Misery

When you went away that day
The world came down on me
We've been best of friends forever
And now it is time to let you go
Your spirit carries on as my
Life continues on alone

I see the cloudless skies
Inside my soul it cries
The scent makes me remember you
