Track Name: Shadows
They say the broken cannot see,
the brightness in ones eyes (dont shut your eyes).
It will consume us in the end ( in the end you bleed alone).
The light in your eyes will turn to shadows,
and bring you to your knees.
But the willing will withstand the plague,
the plague of selfdestruction.
Reluctant souls be free,
but the willing will withstand the plague.
Track Name: A Story For My Funeral
A story sailing out
once you are gone!

This is the first time ever
you will speak the truth
and also last,
while i let go of your hand.

Too dense to realize
what you've lost.
Live through the days.
Imprisoned mind,
won't set you free.

Regret only hinders
what comes after.
Time shall never
stop again for this
and so these memories,
became a disease,
drowning me,
while i struggle to breathe.
-*
Where is the hope,
I couldn't get rid of?
Now that I need you,
you're not here.
Tearing apart the strength
that i've been building
all my life long.
I'm never again
grasping for your warm hand.
-*
No clear state of mind
and no amount of time
just like no person alive,
await no ease of your burden.
Carried to the grave!

Stay with me,
I want to carry you
into my grave.

Stay with me,
even when all hope
is gone you are still here.

Find a way,
out of my heart,
this nest has served
it's purpose.

Find a way,
fly high in the sky,
you should take
this heartpiece with you.

Lesson learned
the hard way.
Still I'm trying
to cover up for
one mistake.
Captured,
never free,
broke down.

This is the first time ever
you will speak the truth
and also last,
while i let go of your hand.

Where is the hope,
I couldn't get rid of?
Now that I need you,
you're not here.
Tearing apart the strength
that i've been building
all my life long.
I'm never again
grasping for your warm hand.
Track Name: Tonight
Oh!
We have no place left to go,
where can we stay?
There is no other day but today,
we'll make it our night,
no reason to fight,
we're all too wasted alright.
So with no further ado,
let's get this party started.

Drink out your fucking livers now,
you know,
so stop asking how.

Drown in, the sadness which surrounds you at this moment.
Drown in, the happiness with your friends still around you.
Submit, to warmth of booze and everyhing around you.
Be safe and kind for you don't know if you will ever...

Wake up to see the sun
or die without having fun.
That's why you're standing here
not knowing fear.
Even with your world upside down,
you stand and hold your ground,
holding your glass up high,
not being an ass tonight.

Let's party till we drop,
nobody here shall stop.
Hold your liquour
stuff gets crazy,
we're not lazy
we're just fucked.
Fuck!!!

I won't stop,
till the last drop.
You won't stop,
till the last drop.
We won't stop,
till the last drop.
Still won't stop,
only because,
we don't know
if we will ever...

Wake up to see the sun
or die without having fun.
That's why you're standing here
not knowing fear.
Even with your world upside down,
you stand and hold your ground,
holding your glass up high,
not being an ass tonight.

Scream out
or shout.
Freak out,
pass out.
Stand up.
Drink up.
Until you have enough.
Track Name: Golden Sun
Have you ever,
lived in fear.
Of losing someone you hold dear.
Relax, take a breath, open those eyes,
just to see demise in your ironic life
you tried to make it right.
Lose the tears, lose them forever,
pride shall make it happen,
just this once.

Fight away to see the sun,
just to find another cut(cut),
You found it time and time.

In a person what can you see,
other than a life of purity.
These dellusions slowly eat away and away.

A fool,a dream,a heart
wasted in these times,
a friend,a brother,a bond,
will lead you astray.

Wither away,
rose full of delight,
embrace the cold truth,
your thorns have a reason.
Coil up little flower
winter is here to take you,
always coated black.

Alone you'll bloom again,
find the missing piece
and the puzzle is complete.

Let the frozen past melt,
the water left behind
will only lend a hand.
Take this small step,
towards the end.

Accept it for yourself.
Become brighter, as bright
as you can.
Tear through the wall and escape.

Wither away,
rose full of bliss,
embrace the cold truth,
your thorns have a reason.
Why should you let go?
Your memories,where will they live?

Wither away,
rose full of delight,
embrace the cold truth,
your thorns have a reason.
Coil up little flower
winter is here to take you,
always coated black.

Another storm
coming your way,
what will you do?

In a winter night,
freezing cold
is taking you again.

You're a golden sun.
Track Name: In Vain Sanity
They reproduce their feelings,
onto the small blank paper,
like a mirror of two.

To be salvation,
at any given time.
Spoiled by kindness.

Raised like a king,
a warm circle,
created by them.

He grabs it all,
it is taken for granted,
like he never should.

Along his way,
forgetting where he came from,
corroding mind.

In this era
dominance is matter,
he is consumed.

We gave him everything,
never lacking anything,
yet he cannot see our care,
our feelings.
Shallow treasure.

You will open up,
after we are gone.
Let our last breath,
be the best present.
You are now a better man.

Search for redemption,
yet the time won't tick backwards.

Mistreating us,
will be buried in your conscience.

Even as souls,
we will always be forgiving,
towards you.

Though all you have left
are things money can buy.

They can be broken,
but they can be fixed.

We may be dead,
but we cannot live again.

Somewhere along your path,
you have strayed,
somewhere in this wasteland,
you have lost yourself,
where nothing but paper exists,
in it's allmighty power you believe.
There is much more beyond that land,
but to realize beforehand,
what is taken for granted,
can always be lost ,
that is your key that will,
that will set you free.

We are your nightmare,
the tears in your eyes.

We live in your conscience
and are burned in your heart.

You can't comprehend,
the fact that we are gone.

The words arrive to late,
they will be left unsaid.

Don't go insane because
now it is in vain.
Learn from the past,
so your future will last.
Find a meaning above
what you hold dear.
So we can sleep,
like we deserve,
so we can sleep
in peace.
Track Name: Cleanse The Present
It's time to say goodnight
to the void in my chest.
Hungry for your bliss,
I'm a monster called human.

Where is your dream?
Devoured by my lust,
leeching for your everything.

I am the comfort in your storm,
I am the knife in your back.
You will speak pure lies
inside my eyes.
for I am possessed by the truth.

Erase me from the present,
fall apart for all i care.
Did i ever mention?
I'll haunt you if you'll sleep.

One hindrance gone forever,
amuse me woman,
find the faces I carry inside.

Begone disposable slave,
you will bury these lies around me.
Find me never again,
cry to everything you had back then.

Upon a gentle breeze,
I will realize the monster
I have become.
The words in your ears
are now clear:
"Fear yourself dear".

In this moment I open up.
I feel the wounds surfacing.
Even this blood is sick of me
and I hear myself calling:
Who am I, to tear you apart?
Who am I, to send you to the graveyard?
Inflicting scars I cannot heal.
If I was gone, how would you feel?

Upon a gentle breeze,
I will realize the monster
I have become.
The words in your ears
are now clear:
"Fear yourself dear".

This world feels lonely,
I stand here with myself,
the one I could never let go.

Sacrifices cleanse your world,
until there's nothing left but you.
Now pray to yourself.

The prison you have built
will collapse under someone's mercy.
Free the pitiful being of what it has become
and the ones left behind,
will catch up to you.

Upon a gentle breeze,
I will realize the monster
I have become.
The words in your ears
are now clear:
"Fear yourself dear".

To my undying pride,
I wonder what you
took from me.
To my undying pride,
my eternal friend,
this cannot be my end.

Teach me,
the kindness i have never known.
Teach me,
to grow a heart i've never had.
To grow a heart i've never had.
