01. Broken Leaf

You are nothing but a broken leaf
Fallen from the tree of life
Shriveled up and scorched
Ready to be cracked
You are nothing but a broken leaf


02. The Shepherd Of Sorrow

Sunshine rays on his face
The breeze carries away his stress
But clouds appear in disgrace
His mood will change I guess.

Moodswing-day, black and white,
Shadows dance in the light.
Moodswing-day, voice inside,
Brainwork conquers his night.

They have called him the shepherd of sorrow
The one who doesn't believe in a brighter tomorrow.
The one that feeds his own depression
The shepherd of regression.

When the widow starts dying
When if it's branches are drowning
When the child starts crying
At the border of the black pool
Staring into the mirror of his soul

Moodswing-day, black and white,
Shadows dance in the light.
Moodswing-day, voice inside,
Brainwork conquers his night.

But every time (when) he looks into his self
He must admit there is a little light
At the end of this road
There has to be a way out
A sparkle of hope, a shiver
Perhaps it is the grim reaper's blade?


03. Silent Nights

Dear child
Why don't you cry tonight?
Dear child
Where did you go last night?
Dear child
Where are you sleeping tonight?
Dear child
Where are you sleeping tonight?

A softspoken ancient man
Took you far away
With his choking silent breath
And his crippled cruel hands
To the lands far beyond
The shadows of the moon

These are the lands, I dare not to travel
These are the borders, I dare not to pass
These are the nights, I stay awake
This is the silence, I wish to fade

I prayed to the heavens in vain
But this spiteful god
He loves to see man suffer
Loves to behold our bleeding

I look at the moon
And hate the silence
I look at the shadows
And curse the silence

These are the lands, I dare not to travel
These are the borders, I dare not to pass
These are the nights, I stay awake
This is the silence, I wish to fade

I prayed to the heavens in vain
But this spiteful god
He loves to see man suffer
Loves to behold our bleeding

I look at the moon
And hate the silence
I look at the shadows
And curse the silence

It feels like deities love to open scars
Pouring salt into bleeding wounds
Knowing some sears never stop
Hoping these woes will never end

Dear child
And so it came to an end
On the first of many restless, sleepless nights
Untouched by the lashes of life

Before the first light of a new day
You went forever away
Into the silence of this night
Of that terrible, cold night


04. My Damnation Deep

Nothing in the world could harm me more
Than the loss of all hope and the bite of fear
Nothing in the world could break me more
Than this state of catatonia

Unfortunately it happened to me
As if I must drown in this pool of misery
If I tried to breathe calmly
Would it serve me on my quest
If I tried to roar deeply
Will my lament thus be heard

My damnation deep

Nothing in the world could lynch me more
Than the voice of my inner self
That screams like a lamb
Ready to get slaughtered
Nothing in the world could cleanse me more
Than a peaceful mind free of pain
Nothing in the world would heal me more
Than purest love so deep

If I'm able to find that balance
Would it harvest its fruit
If I start to love you
Will you answer my dreams?

A reason for living
A goal to achieve
A reason for living
A goal to achieve

Nothing in the world could hang me more
Than this damnation so deep


05. The Soilseeker

Like everyone's so tired of this world
The routine of being and the lack of time
Hate and envy, exhaustion and fear
It becomes time to evaluate ourselves

A constant motion turns like the wheel of torture
We are the victims of the new world
Saddled up with stress & depression
Over-charged psyches can no longer handle

Intolerance, egocentrism & isolation
Subconscious phobia & hyperventilation
All finally leads to the final station
It becomes time to evaluate ourselves

And blaming society would be easy
It you're not part of it
And spoken words are easy
It you're not practising what you preach

The cause is you, living like haunted cattle
Struggling through life like if it's a final battle
We could travel back to the primitive state of savage man
And be sensitive to the powers that be
And break the tension and restoring the broken chain
And feel connection with the soil, the source.

We could feel the warmth around us
The flowing energy through our bodies
But we don't as there's no time left
It becomes time to evaluate ourselves

The cause is you, living like haunted cattle
Struggling through life like if it's a final battle


06. Her Dark Smile

Her dark smile is just a mask
She is a terrified little girl
Fearing a stern world outside
Fearing the dragon she might find
On her wretched path of life
A sad tale yet to be told

Her dark smile
Covers her pains inside
Her dark smile
Deceives the greatest minds
Her dark smile
Hates to unveil what hides inside
Her dark smile
Forever in our mind

Can you hear her cry?
She is screaming inside
Can you smell her blood?
The blood she has lost
It's not her knife, that cuts
It's not her wound that bleeds

She fears all daylight brings
Flees in the safety of a dark summer's night
The sun brings her greatest fears
The stars sing of her tears

It's her smile, that cuts
It's her heart, that bleeds
The white dress, she wears
Grows redder every day
It's her birth curse, to bleed forevermore
It's sad to see, what light can't breed
And that all life needs

She is just a terrified little girl
Fearing a stern world outside
Fearing the dragon she might find


07. The Burden Of Doubt

Another bitter tear is falling
Yet it's better to keep crawling
Then starting to slide away
In the abyss of decay
We would have never reached the top
It was really time to stop
No, don't you ever take my hand

You won't lead me to the promised land
And liberate me from this feeling
Stop pardoning and stop kneeling
Our decision has been made
So leave my thoughts and fade
No, don't you ever take my hand
You won't lead me to the promised land

I can hear it in your voice
The torture of that difficult choice
And I can see it in your eyes
The twisted truth and the lies
What's that scent in the air
Is it the odour of despair
I can feel it in your skin
The cruelty of your sin

Kiss me now goodbye
But please don't let me die

It's time to make up your mind
Believe me you're one of a kind
I can hear it in your voice
And see it in your eyes
I can smell it in the air
And feel it on your skin
The cruelty of your sin
So kiss me now goodbye
But please don't let me die


08. Vilest Of Men

Do you feel my wrath?
Fiendish, yet angelical
I deceived the world
With honey-soaken words
I raped our essence
With what I have done
As you bleed shamefully
I shall rise gracelessly

I am the vilest of men
A morbid shadow you see
I am the vilest of men
A fallen angel in me

I am what you dread
the dream that wakes you at night
The demon on your chest
Choking you in a hex

I am the vilest of men
A morbid shadow you see
I am the vilest of men
A fallen angel in me

I ride the chariot of lies
In a nebula of sin
I blind with deceit
Raping honour in a heartbeat

I am the vilest of men
A morbid shadow you see
I am the vilest of men
A fallen angel in me

See me as a magician of deceit
Forever finding new ways to mislead
For I possess the blackest of hearts
And yet I blind more than the brightest light

A radiating sun of damnation
In you, Eden of desolation
A cold-hearted vision behind these blue eyes
The sparkle that could have saved our world
