01. Your Fall From Grace

You've got a bewildered look in your eyes
Don't know whether I should laugh or cry
So serene but at the same time you look crazed
Like an angel that fell from grace

I remember the times when you were still innocent
Unspoiled and pure without this torment
Looking at you now is a contradiction
I still see the good through this veil of addiction

This evil is keeping you at arms length
You cannot resist, you haven't got the strength
You seem peaceful, yet in your case
You're like an angel that fell from grace

I remember the times when you were still innocent
Unspoiled and pure without this torment
Looking at you now is a contradiction
I still see the good through this veil of addiction

Your dependency led you to hell
In this misery you now dwell
Your beauty faded away
Your colourful eyes turned to grey
An angel looking like a ghost
The path to redemption now closed

Your addiction only causes harm
When you stick that needle into your arm
Your family also struck with hurt
You were their angel since your birth
This innocence they can't recall
Since you decided to take this fall
Into misery and substance abuse
Leaving everyone mixed-up and confused

You've got a bewildered look in your eyes
Don't know whether I should laugh or cry
So serene but at the same time you look crazed
Like an angel that fell from grace


02. Burning All Boats And Bridges

Things need to change
The past keeps haunting me
I need to get away
From all the memories I still see

Cut all connections
Leave everything I used to be
A logical reaction
Burning everything behind me

No one has to know
Where I'll be, where I'll go
This simply must be done
I have to leave, I want to be gone

I need to reconnect
To a new life without hurt
I surely do expect
This change will be my rebirth

Burning all boats and bridges
My past I have to delete
Burning all boats and bridges
From this life I have to retreat

Things need to change
The past keeps haunting me
I need to get away
From all the memories I still see

Cut all connections
Leave everything I used to be
A logical reaction
Burning everything behind me

Burning all boats and bridges
The purpose to fulfill my need
Burning all boats and bridges
Embracing the sting of this heat

Burn, burn, burn, burn

All boats and bridges have to burn
My life has to take another turn
It surely is in my best concern
A fresh start, what I earn

Burning everything that's my past life
I have to do this to stay alive
Nothing can keep me from living this way
There's no reason for me to stay

All boats and bridges have to burn
My life has to take another turn
It surely is in my best concern
A fresh start, what I earn

Burning all boats and bridges
My past I have to delete
Burning all boats and bridges
From this life I have to retreat

Burning all boats and bridges
The purpose to fulfill my need
Burning all boats and bridges
Embracing the sting of this heat


03. Your Heaven, My Underworld

The concept of joy within your mind
Is nothing but misery to me
You can't see it hurts me
It seems you are blind
To pain and frustration killing me
I want to break free from this cage
It only brings depression and rage
I'm on a knife's edge, a cliff above the sea
There's one final wish being free.

You push me closer and closer
To the edge until I fall over
It's time truth unfolds
Your heaven, my underworld

You push me closer and closer
To the edge until I fall over
It's time truth unfolds
Your heaven, my underworld

The concept of joy within your mind
Is nothing but misery to me
You can't see it hurts me
It seems you are blind
To pain and frustration killing me

Your heaven to me equals hell
There's no light in my inner being
Do you understand what I'm trying to tell?
Do you care about the darkness I am seeing?

You push me closer and closer
To the edge until I fall over
It's time truth unfolds
Your heaven, my underworld

You push me closer and closer
To the edge until I fall over
It's time truth unfolds
Your heaven, my underworld


05. To The Gallows

I sit here in this cell
Eating my last meal
Soon you'll hear the bell
It all seems so unreal

The noose around my neck
Staring at my death
The gallows are my end
I breathe my final breath

Punished for my deeds
Leaving you and our son
Not able to provide in your needs
It's my fault I did you wrong

The noose around my neck
Staring at my death
The gallows are my end
I breathe my final breath

It seems I've gone through a personal hell
With what I did you have nothing to do
Me hanging from the gallows tells
What pain and misery I put unto you


06. The Wounded And The Dying

Endless fields
Of hurt and misery
All way to the horizon
As far as eyes can see
The rotting smell
Of the wounded and the dying
The agonizing screams
And painful crying

Sinister visions
Of death and decay
Imprinted in the mind
Will never fade away
Filthy tactics
Of the battlefield
This defamation
Can't be concealed

Endless fields
Of hurt and misery
All way to the horizon
As far as eyes can see
The rotting smell
Of the wounded and the dying
The agonizing screams
And painful crying

Sinister visions
Of death and decay
Imprinted in the mind
Will never fade away
Filthy tactics
Of the battlefield
This defamation
Can't be concealed

Wartime heroes live on to tell the tale
Those who died cannot do the same
Those wounded embraced by shame
Left to rot by a government that fails

Boxed up
And shipped home
In the afterlife
They will roam
Missing limbs
Phantom pain
Personal pride
Completely slain


07. One With The Sea (Part II)

A stormy night on the open sea
She felt it was time to cease to be
One last glimpse, one last breath
Saying a prayer, jumping to her death

He saw her jump, and screamed to her
He couldn't imagine this would occur
Immediately ringing the ships bell
As the sea rose and fell in vertiginous swells

They tried to rescue this beloved girl
Through the thrashing water her body hurled
Disappearing and reappearing
Swept away in a massive wave

Hope was fading as treacherous waves,
were hammering on these men so brave.
Trying to find her, she who wanted to die.
Looking for her, there's no time to cry

Like a falling cliff, the wave smashes down
In the searchlight he sees her, she is found
Her skin has a blue-ish deathly pallor
A faint desperate smile crept across his face

He knows she's dead, he is jaded
His world went black, his strength quickly faded
He knows they are too late, now it's time to grief
The ocean swallowed her like a dead leaf


08. Like Atlas

I'm staring at these white padded walls
The burden of my past got me on my knees
Like Atlas bearing the weight of the skies
An internal war in a mind with no sign of peace
Never thought this would get to me
All this pain build up inside
Experiences of sorrow that cannot be
All the fears I cannot fight
I cannot cope with the past
The pressure on my soul is too much
I lost and my mind collapsed
Overwhelmed by this degrading mental touch
The strength to live disappeared
A tormented soul in a cold shell
A future filled with pain is what I fear
A lost life on its way to hell

I'm staring at these white padded walls
The burden of my past got me on my knees
Like Atlas bearing the weight of the skies
An internal war in a mind with no sign of peace
Never thought this would get to me
All this pain build up inside
Experiences of sorrow that cannot be
All the fears I cannot fight

I feel like Atlas but not as strong
This burden I cannot bear
I thought I could handle it all but I was wrong
Leaving me in pain and scared
I feel like Atlas but I am defeated
This burden I couldn't stand
By this life I was mistreated
In this cell my life will end....
