Lyrics

The Wonders At Your Feet

deeper shades of red descending
smear our names, the stains unending
turn forgiveness,
break the lens distorted
crush the infidel and turn about
famine in our hearts, bring up the silence louder
eradicate the lungs and take us higher

these are the wonders at your feet

weighed upon a wider scale
afraid to see what takes us down
sing destruction, sing of unfullfillment
search abandoned, let the blood be fevered
ridden of the self provided things get easier
ignite our minds and let´s burn brighter

these are the wonders at your feet

Static

nothing of a man was he
his true face of sleep a deception
fell through all the way to the bottom
learned to hold

again we vowed not to hold sacred
but to damn that hollow gaze
unsteady on these shorelines
mute to an unthought scream
another word fell silent
like the static in their eyes
against all fleeing logic
we let our minds go
blank

why define ourselves by misguiding light?
how can we receive the static in their eyes

each blink of light an accuser
each unlit shape an assassin

crawled the outer rim
with his back exposed
the shadows unending
fought off the stares

again we vowed not to hold sacred
but to damn that hollow gaze
unsteady on these shorelines
mute to an unthought scream
another word fell silent
like the static in their eyes
against all fleeing logic
we let our minds go
blank

nullify the ego, stay right back
stay right back
how can we receive
the static?

fear that strangles spirit
denial speaks the truth
fear that strangles spirit
crushes me and you

wicked are the senses, wicked are the words
give me the static

again we vowed not to hold sacred
but to damn that hollow gaze
unsteady on these shorelines
mute to an unthought scream
another word fell silent
like the static in their eyes
against all fleeing logic
we let our minds go
blank

The Poison Well

unless another wall is breaking
nothing can come of this
elusive
against our better judgement
(allow) our image to stand ground
turn around and

break the path and let´s get going
to the place where nobody ever goes
break the path and let´s get going
to the place where nobody ever goes
nobody ever goes

with ideals as infestations
hinder the radical mind
retune our aim
now it´s time for hiding
for it stabs fear in you
so coward

break the path and let´s get going
to the place where nobody ever goes
break the path and let´s get going
to the place where nobody ever goes
nobody ever goes

a thought to infect you
an idea to perfect you

a flesh to restrain you
no heart to forgive you

the poison well
i dried

break the path and let´s get going
to the place where nobody ever goes
break the path and let´s get going
to the place where nobody ever goes
nobody ever goes

The Treason Wall

Let me tell you about the loss of all
The failing of all that we hold dear
Wrapped up nicely in ourselves

Chaos resolves
That which order defiles
Worthless lives
Are ordered blind

I don´t believe
Taste and you will see
That all belongs to me
I don´t believe
I won´t believe

I raise my hand against it all
For those who don´t recognize the call
Will the sense to overcome these nestled walls
Going to break it down

Let me nail you to the treason wall
Stab the night and the day from your sight
And set the thought to flame

Feeble devout
Nothing resides
Break it to pieces
That obstinate mind

I raise my fist to hold the line
Against those who set themselves on high
Going to break it down

Hedon

Enter Suicidal Angels;

How hungry we´ve become;
like animals naked in shame
Fed with the hooves of apocalypse
that galloped down, disordered worlds behind

From word to a word I was led to a word
that spanned over cultures in rage
Crimson masses, sleeped in decadence
holding our tongues to the thirsty sun
So, it the future still open?
Then enter, hornet, from our hive-dark hearts
to draw down the end from within

We need not the horns
that emanate from our warty, haunted bodies
severed and numbered they are

Nihilist, Hedon
the priceless art of their lives
Sorrow is a wing laid atop their heads.
skin deep, we carve our immeasurable sorrow
in the fold of your shivering arms

Hedon,
Your chindren wild
and filled with death

# Jupiter in our unforgiving eves:
a pandemonium of bodies and gold
Eager, as a part of your face
and the sickness attached to your skin (stone)
as the wine-rush,
changing from androgynous wombs
to open free the lid of pain #

Hedon,
rinsed in post-human shadows
a monument scorned by the teeth of time
Stale-faced keeper of secrets,
loaded with implosive fire
the whore that carried the apostle
to the mating point on the graves of giants

We look at you, afraid
to see what we really are

In Sight

we are to be something here again
we are to play soldiers now, pretend
we are born inside these endless halls of shame
we are jaded by the error-ways of man

it doesn´t make us strong
it doesn´t make us strong
the things that i find stranger here
will not let us in
will not let us in
show me, i won´t tell
and even if i go today
i won´t understand
understand

we are to be something we are not
we are to repeat our faults my friend
we are taken down from sanity´s lonely heights
we are shown the downward spiral ways of man

it doesn´t make us strong
it doesn´t make us strong
the things that i find stranger here
will not let us in
no, they will not let us in
show me, i won´t tell
´cause even if i die today
i won´t understand
understand

Misery In Me

we no longer support ourselves
we live through each others tears
we no longer caress, no longer take hold
til this will be over again
the dream is over when all this begins
the past not part of the deal
the failing words i once said to you
you turned and walked out the door

gone
over
i said it´s fine
you burn them bridges
and you turn around
around

can´t you see the misery in me?
can´t you see the misery is me?
don´t you know the fear i feel inside?
the misery in me

we no longer sustain ourselves
we live through each other´s wounds
let´s no longer detain, no longer suppress
pretend to be something we´re not
the world is over when all is the same
a companion always there
but you have deceived
when all this is gone
you took back what you already had

gone
over
i said it´s fine
you burn them bridges
and you turn around
around

can´t you see the misery in me?
can´t you see the misery is me?
don´t you know the fear i feel inside?
the misery in me

we no longer care if it breaks
it falls on belated pride
we keep on heading inwards
so this might be our only chance
to turn it around

can´t you see the misery in me?
can´t you see the misery is me?
don´t you know the fear i feel inside?
the misery in me

White Noise/black Silence

Time in argument will end
Flames of preparation
Fingers felt the whipping
Hand that feeds the flame

Escalate the drought
Itching to join the fray

Wishing darkness was sound
Shutting desires out
Wishing darkness was sound
But as moths to the flame...
...We go

You the ignorant
Take sides in these three dimensions
Nullify importance
Confined within the page

Scan for raoture again
Look for an instant save

Wishing darkness was sound
Shutting desires out
Wishing darkness was sound
But as moths to the flame...
...We go....

Mere moments pass and still it seems
Detached from insight, thought and word
Ever since it lost its edge
Lost in the noise forever be
In the blur of information
The nail that never sticks
The nail that never sticks

White Noise
Black silence

Venting a foul stench
Purging the fevered self
Behind a traitor´s name

Face the consequence
Taken back in the eyes of fairness
A nobody forever
Hidden and locked away

Working the boards again
Giving the wrath away

Haven

now as the lights go down
deeper now it seems than long before
there are no noises here
just a silence gone bad
something I will never hide
this urging need to

invite the darkside in
into my haven

if there were words for this
would I sing or should I scream?
I´d give my blood to stay
my blood just to stay right here
something can never share
this urging need to

invite the darkside in
into my haven

Cornered

there never was a night like this
how could there ever be?
through sweat and velvet misery
the fever-race in me

cornered in symmetrical design
spherelike chrome on a sea enraged
hatred

what the mirror sees
is the clutching at straws
taking us under
the storm of the ocean
this velvety crush
ringcorners, firm in the outrage
synoptic patterns
waves contort
break into these cellular walls

globes of disease
infest my dreams
burning the ends of my veins

pattern and form
the squares cling fast
dance the tide now

could never bear another night
although i know it will come
the freezing ends of what is me
the icing rages free

cornered in symmetrical design
spherelike chrome on a sea enraged
hatred

take hold of the boundaries
on this perimeter sea
burn, enflame the oppressor
and if four was one
in a corner alone
recovering, licking the wounds
delirium coming
the weakness kicks in
reforming, cornered within

No-one

uncontrolled spaces
lifeless til provoked
deep uncharted oceans
nonexistent til claimed
great raging fires
silent

when there is no one
when no one is mine
the no one is me
the no one is me
me, me, me, me

tall reaching branches
pointless to even try
countless flaming cities
measured without cost
all-seeing eyes
without stories to tell

inside the orchard there´s a scent of devilry
as was in my heart
...the sweetness overripe...
rancid in attempt to overcome the shackles
if only the soil could hold

when there is no one
when no one is mine
the no one is me

when there is no one
when no one is mine
the no one is me
the no one is me

when there is no one
when no one is mine
the no one is me
the no one is me

the wide open wound
won´t heal without purpose
it never stops
the wide open wound
that never heals
the no one is me
the no one is me

Punish My Heaven

We are the outstretched fingers
That seize and hold the wind...

The strangeness of awakening
In an oh so silent world
Breathlessly waiting
For the first proud beams of light
As the hours grow longer
And the shadows never fall
My sky has forsaken me
My desperation grows

Bring me the light
In the darkness that never ends
The dawn will never come
Punish my heaven

We have arrived
At the outermost crossroads
The charge of cosmos
At our atmospheric skies
Will cause our fall

If I had wings, would I be forgiving?
If I had horns
Would there be flames to shy my smile?

Hymns of loss are heard
From the masses in the streets
Praising the last of days
I punish

Bring me the night
In the fires that never end
The dawn will never come
Punish my heaven

The charge of cosmos
Charging at us from unearthly distance
I challenge the universe
It´s the choice between heaven and hell

My soul bears all the weight of mountains
As mankind weaves its silent end
Can there be no forgiveness?
I curse the heaven above me
As the light sinks through
My outstretched fingers
Fading in my open arms

Make each tear in my bare hands
A lifetime in hell

On this last day of light
When our autumn leaves fell
And as heaven itself commands me
Out of its lair
I fear not
My face lined for darkness
I´ll go!

Monochromatic Stains

There is this face in the still water
I can´t remember ever wearing
Like fingerprints on your heart
Reading out the last lines of code
To the untrained eye a secret
I bled away the last of you

Sought trust in shapes of combined results
That trickles from a less than solid case
Fought off attacks of resurfaced l**t
Burn the gracing grounds

What will give in first
The body or the lash
Monochromatic stains
Who will cave in first
The leader or the fake
Monochromatic stains

This pile of ashes of a soul
Informant pokes abound
These sickly little fingers
Get away from me

Tread not the path of least restraint
Each piece of evidence a lie, a lie
The body, the face all items in place
I don´t remember a thing

A sacrifice made to the loss of mind
Folly a man´s demise

Track now the stains that allow my fall
Sickening, the sight of it all
Never shall I claim my innocence
I just was not there

Exposure

rise, i say, yes rise above
´cause evil is as evil does, what evil does to me

down you go to lands below
´cause evil is as evil does, what evil does to me

they who reign in sand
take this brightest strike
in their so called castles
now with walls of glass

i can see, i can see, i can see
all your deeds, all your needs, on your knees
so i´ll crack your feeble shell

can you even see the works of what you fear?
´cause evil is as evil does what evil´s done to me

further inside, til all you have is mine
evil is as evil does, the evil done to me

dreams, he said
dreams he wore
dreams he wore
dreams he wore
hope, he said
hope he wore
love, he said
and evil he wore

i´ll strip you down
i´ll tear you down
i´ll burden you with tears
i´ll bring you down
til nails come off
i´ll turn your bed of lies
dreams upon a night
dreams upon your thoughts
dreams upon your fears
and dreams upon your love

blind to your eyes, blind to your mind
´cause evil is what evil does, what evil does to me

taste and you´ll see the fruit you took is foul
evil is what evil does, what evil´s done to me

you who turn to others
with everything you lack
a face that bears not seeing
then i´ll turn my back

i can see, i can see, i can see
all your needs, all your deeds, on your knees
so i´ll crack your f*****g shell

Yesterworld

Over the moor of mist and through valleys of fate
I fly on my voyage through this moonlit landscape
of re-emerged figments of imagination
I am aroused in sleep....aroused in sleep

Far beyond the gate which reflects in the closed eye
reveal that a dreamscape lies therein
A yearning for a world
where the everlost find their peace
In the pearly gates of dawn
on the astral feed of minds
- envenomed to the bone
forever cleansed from all called wrath
as slumber sneaks upon
and steals the thought of man
all ridden from inner aggression...
A voyage beyond this world
In this paralell to real life
- access lies in dreams
Unveil hidden secrets in our sleep
- the key to what´s beyond

In the wake of man we see
essential dreams unfulfilled
Enhance the value of life
engraved words on the page of man

In the presence of the moon
an owl awakes and calls a name
tells a story of a world
accessable only at night...

"This ain´t no dream..."

Legend tells of a yesterworld
a dreamscape of strange light
"It´s your dream coming true"
Transcendance of the soul
All by the sign of the moon

I am eaten away in mouthfuls by flames
that burn in the errors of our ways
In a night when the sky floats blue
as touquoise, and the stars of silver are twinkling
in their outmost pride

Now from dimensions fallen from the skies
- like the flow of a stream
From my sleep I continue onward
- sleep is just a shape of destiny

Weak sunlight of dawns to come,
dancing swiftly in the shadows
Shimmering, shining in a landscape of dreams

...landscape of my dreams
Dim reflections of the pale
a shade of grey in mind

In the presence of the moon
an owl awakes and calls a name
tells a story of a world
accessable only at night...

"It´s your reality..."

Legend tells of a yesterworld
a dreamscape of strange light
"It´s much more than a dream"
Transcendance of the soul
All by the sign of the moon

Soon these worlds will be one
and mankind feasts on the sights of it all
I yearn for things to come

Still wrapped in the thrall of slumber
as the mist slippes away to reveal...
And the wind tears a scream from my lips
- I am there....

In the dreamscape I adore
(a moonclad reflection)

Indifferent Suns

and although it can be argued
whether time will ever come to end
there is an overcoming sense of failing
if you never can see the end
in the giving of our hope eternal
we stumble blindly and forget the way
is there ever time for answers
when the world comes tumbling down

all along we keep staring at the sun
closing our minds
saying we´re the ones
all along we keep staring at the sun
blind to see it when the day will come

and even if in days of wonders
a glance that may stray from the fold
cast aside in the spirit of ignorance
a mere nuisance when it?s time to pay
come undone now the strive and the passion
giving under to the forces that be
can you even think of questions
when the world comes tumbling down
we shut our eyes and turn away

all along we keep staring at the sun
closing our minds
saying we´re the ones
all along we keep staring at the sun
blind to see it when the day will come

Format C: For Cortex

Mental Blindfolds on
Early on the fascination intense
How to discern just where right belongs

Something has got to give
These things I just don´t want you to see

There is no need for you to start revolutions
I don´t want you to talk to the minions
Just show me a brand new face
An open mind against a dying race

Something has got to give
These things I just don´t want you to hear/feel

Cannot fail in this the era of losers
Burnt the shell of those that once held the torches
Cannot give you the senses anew
Nor will you know innocence again

Something has got to give
These things I just don´t want you to know

In time all your questions will be answered
Not what you hoped for, not what you dreamed
All preconceptions crumble

Something has got to give
These things I just don´t want you to learn

Won´t hold up to the standards you keep
Never came from the formative years
Just show me a brand new mind
Keep in what you left behind

Something has got to give
These things I just don´t want you to be

Unfurled By Dawn

Time and space unite
era of darkness - we mourn
Times of sorrow despite
our preach is put to scorn...

In ways like these I shall be reborn
to my words I conform
To seek the path of knowledge through time
In a life in a lack of rhyme (or reason)

Subconcious powers flow
- we burn the ways forlorn
Am I in time with forces I am born
Are those disguised
Excuse is being dumb
In spirit fails...

Self realization in supreme conciousness
Explore the self - within a millenia of peace

Reach into the soil of humankind
Bury secrets beneath this hallowed ground

Feel the wind of time now changing
Hear the voice that whispers near

Explore the inner strength within you now
seek deep in your soul - it´ll show you how

Join us - in this quest to satisfy
Join us - and none shall mortify
I´ve seen the light unfurled by dawn
I´ve seen the blackest ways we scorn
We shan´t conform - we shall remain...

"I´ve seen the void that echo fear"

Fly into this void of inner consioucness
we seek eternally

Greet enlightned ways...
I spead out wings of knowledge
is essential in mournful times like these
Words I repent

Voice from inner self shall lead my way

Former ways of life I repent
to inner consciosness I´ve ascent
Mortal way of living is the key
Key to the secret it beholds

Come to seek the path with me
in unfathomable harmony
the way life is meant to be
enjoy and just adore life...

Burning desire in thee
letting your soul fly free
No sould shall be the same
burn with a different flame
Sowing the seeds of man
proving the things your can
Seeing the things that´ll be
the priors in life I can see

Each of mankind is a star
that will keep on shining eternally

Unveil the hidden unknown things in mind
enchanted over things that you will find

Join us - in this quest to satisfy
Join us - and none shall mortify
I´ve seen the light unfurled by dawn
I´ve seen the blackest ways we scorn
We shan´t conform - we shall remain...

In affection we loom - a reflection of time
Walless prison, consumed - ignore irrelevance (a rule)

Search the inner self - find the self within
Finding things I´ve seen in dreams (seeing evermore)
things that´ s left unsaid
Surrending to this inner force, feeling no remorse
nothing to forbid

In the empty eyes of the last of mortals
those songs they echo as in halls of the enlightened
Before this dawn of eternal light we stand
once more now as darkness belongs to the forgotten

...to the forgotten

Internal sadness cured through the light
to reach the sadest river in sight
Whispers of molten souls in my ear
on wings of twillight I am born....

Now enthrone thoughts of the past
the embryo of time
Your life lies yet unfolded
´til enlightened ways we see

In my dreams I´ve seen repention
as in tales that were never told

Join us - in this quest to satisfy
Join us - and none shall mortify
I´ve seen the light unfurled by dawn
I´ve seen the blackest ways we scorn
We shan´t conform - we shall remain...

Midwinter/beyond Enlightenment

Now oppression stalks the remnants of compassion,
brewing hatred to surface in wicked actions
Cloaked in peace and mercy, force their false confessions
Sentenced am I dying, cleansed from all salvation

"Defy our accusations and a certain death you´ll meet
A fool denies the obvious, and fools we shall defeat"
All sanity now vanquished, ever mould beyond control
My guilt stands yet unproven though they still demand my fall

Demand my fall

Blood runs beyond enlightenment at inquisition´s hands
Vicious burn the fires swiftly out of hand

Now my fate lies in their "hands of liberation"
forming law and justice into obscuration
leading lies ensuring my life ceased in fire,
In the name of peace, to cleance my dark desires

"You stand accused of herasy and all what that implies
With darkened minds you summon those who´re fallen from the skies"
Envenomed bleed their poisoned hearts, the power they´ve abused
A deadly game of envy in which my life I´ll lose

Blood runs beyond enlightenment at inquisition´s hands
Vicious burn the fires swiftly out of hand

Shackled, fettered - choking as I drown
Fooled and tortured - confess comitted crimes
Shackled, fettered - choking as I drown
Fooled and tortured - confess comitted crimes

Sentenced by superstition - my innocense denied
Truth is strange than fiction - religious genocide

Alone in blind desperation, I face my mournful death
In flames I meet termination, but my memory will be left

Hours Passed In Exile

What if:

A) some things are destined to failure
B) some things are never meant to be
C) someone never sees
D) someone never opens
E) somehow we are different

Though I never claimed to be right
Give to me the benefit of doubt

I brought you fires
That you put out
I brought you fires
For I cannot be without
I came with sadness
But this my shattered heart can´t bear

What of the times in exile
What of the hours passed
What if touches seem too trivial

You can never tell me I´m wrong
A song I´ve heard so long

So what if healing takes forever
So what if time is meant for others
So what is left is but a shatter
And what is broken can´t be whole

Vernal Awakening

Enthroned through this age of confusion an urge,
the weakness and flooy since aeons emerged,
Created life in fetters from cradle to grave
A future in darkness with mankind enslaved

Trail of life decayed - wasteland whall prevail
Hatred lies in store - chaos evermore

So runs the spiel from where lives are found and lost:
"Learn from past failures - prevent to pay the cost"

Sunlight fades as nightfall rises in shadows formed in clay
What once dwelt shall dwell no more when darkness sees the day
A bleakwinter of enmity and terror shall take form
What man created will be ruined when hate conjures the storm

When our time spells an end to our ruling of this earth,
will a wasteland remain?
Will all life cease to be by the wicked ways of man
- his enfeebled domain?

Nature left in flames - Suffering, now to maim
Cataclysm at hand - unveiled unto man

So runs the spiel from where lives are lost and found:
"Progression in spirit eliminates all bounds"

Sunlight fades as nightfall rises in shadows formed in clay
What once dwelt shall dwell no more when darkness sees the day
A bleakwinter of enmity and terror shall take form
What man created will be ruined when hate conjures the storm

Hallow minds start to burn with the flaming shades of fall
let disorder arise!
An avenge to be brought to the ones who graveled earth
hides now cloaked in disguise

Blind deception, mass confusion - interbreeding dark illusions
Tumbelling, falling, brings conclusions -
constant fatal life-corrosion

Autumn - beckons forth the
winter - rising gloom in hand
Raging with bleak coldness ´til
vernal light commands

Final chapter closed - world devoid of use
Failure brings despair - death reveals its lair

Sunlight fades as nightfall rises in shadows formed in clay
What once dwelt shall dwell no more when darkness sees the day
A bleakwinter of enmity and terror shall take form
What man created will be ruined when hate conjures the storm

Void Of Tranquillity

In orbit they pass around you - the memories from abandoned past
Images from within your mind bring unknown feelings into your veins

Delve into thy twillight past, a voyage done before
The borderland ´twixt life and death - existing evermore
Emerging from material guise - an ever-living soul
Thy spirit lives forever more, in spite of aim or goal

The forces of your vital mind deteriates vagely
as you´re about to pass away The darkness that
surrounds you fades...

You reach out to touch, to feel the eternal
forgivness for thy impure soul
Desperation fills your mind - approach the centre
Centre of infernal salvation and infernal death

Enter to the plain of life, to knowledge loomed through time
An ever-living certainty where life is formed to chime
Foolishness and wisdom walk gently hand hand in hand
Embraced in darkest universe as contraries blend as one

Fear fills your mind on this ongoing journey
journey to a thousand secrets untold
Credlous at first to this place of wonder
Wonder´s so real - it could be an illusion

Through dark veils of destiny - Realm of shades revealed
Through dark veils of destiny - Infinite life concealed

Your soul now levitates slowly and below your body fades
Your conciousness remains but thy skin will soon rot away
Visions from an obscure rality appear as your soul departs
This once so undisturbed and now frail and feeble world

Brought forth, the abyss now appears - foulmouthed temptations call me near
Dark visions laughing over me - if swollowed I will cease to be
Tempted to this world beyond - eager to break the bond
The sacred promise of an earthly stay - now broken as you writhe in dismay

Come to where all life descends in brimful harmony
Cautious, interlacing, they engrave what they shall be
All bounds cannot be broken or confusion will prevail
- lifeless dark eternity of chaos and despair

Indescribable light descends between spheres
Spheres that behold that nondescript fear
Thought of the sins that were done in the past
the past is forgotten and the present will last

Through dark veils of destiny - Realm of shades revealed
Through dark veils of destiny - Infinite life concealed

Floating through these halls of light, emotions burst within
Pure beauty of divinity enrobes remaining sin
Alone, enthralled, I bow this force, paternal majesty
Freed from anguish, freed from hate - into my destiny

Into the void of tranquillity

Through the rise and fall of worlds, one greater mind prevails
Conjuring new creations as it watches the old ones fail
Eternal coil of time and place - reality and tale
The answers to all questions hide within this astral vale

Passed through tranquillity - aeons now flow away
Claimants of destiny - death can no more hold sway

Forced to return - departure of soul
Material world - arrival as told

The Sun Fired Blanks

upon our evening when the sun fired blanks
there rode the sickness out of our sight
carried torches burned out long before it´s time
among these ruins where our love to be found

ambition falters when no better is to be known
cling to the unfounded pride

death to our belonging
and our ministy of two
set the higher standard
and to a greater fall descend

slaves to one another
and to others be it not
soothing be temptation
force the conscience to a halt

caused a high vibration
a tender light to be part of you
the two-way escape

Damage Done

Went inside the caves of seven wolves
Felt of the forces that lend themselves to speed
Those final words to fracture the very structure
Can´t stand this glacial pace
The damage done

It seems these days are getting shorter
Derails my train of thought

What said in hand was done
Chased unforgiveness down these corridors
Locked down the basis for the willing form
A trail far from strayed
The damage done

Set aside from eyes of others
Our frail structures can´t keep up with the pace

Brought out for all to see
The damage done
Face contradicting needs

We bring our cages home
For none to see
In vain to lessen
Responsibility
The damage done

Lethe

Give me the drink of the fluid
That disintegrates
And lend me the sweet balm and blessing
Of forgetfulness, empty and strong
Lethe [x2]

Hold me near, unravel the stars
As I speed through the heavens
Speed through the night
For you are my blade and my rope
Your are my [x2]
Lethe

In currents of cobalt
You storm through my heart
To sever, to puncture
The memories that burn
Let sweep through the arteries
In sharp stabs of pain
Your talonlike fingers to kill me again

Steal me, invade me and charge me again
For I burn and I shudder
Burn with each movement of

So, cleansed through a floodlight
I appear; renewed and reforged
Caressed by the sweet balm and blessing
Of forgetfulness, empty and strong
Lethe

Hold me near, my one friend and guide
As I drown through your fingers
Drown through your love
For you are the life I hate
You are my [x2]
Lethe

Drag me down, in passionate sighs
With the ocean above me
And flames in my eyes
And grant me a life I can live
Without...
Take me away...[x2]

...From the life that I hate.

Not Built To Last

what came as no surprise
to a jaded mind no less
insight comes to soothing grace
left to waiting days
..another chord unstrummed

our secret´s safe and sound
solid now unless it breaks in two
faithfully unbound
none of this was ever built to last

in the paleness of a less than life
from a corner watching old paint dry
never once a break
into the self again
an endeavour that will flat our fail
what maturity comes to end
never one to face
..another beat undone

our secret´s safe and sound
solid now unless it breaks in two
faithfully unbound
none of this was ever built to last

once again
another instant saved today
left a print that leads nowhere
never built to last
what makes it work
a part of life that makes the weak hearts grow
take it in if you?re willing to say
willing to do
prepared to lay it down
just know this
it was never built to last

Therein

gentle storm / thundering silence
inferior force / uncontrolled calm
vital unlife / logic/chaos/logic

the tone of which his birth ascend
the beat that of a heart descend
repeating in the infinite
an insight made it clear
order stormed the surface
where chaos set the norm
had there always been balance?
...surely not
therein lies the beauty

it was solid
yet everchanging
it was different
yet the same
so I starve myself for energy

the song around his soul will bend
the notes that in this hole will melt
crawl out of science
a dreamland if you dear
disorder clawed the boundaries

we´re ordered to stand clear
was it always different
...never the same?
therein lies the beauty

as there were no witnesses
there was nothing to be told
as nothing could be grasped
the story could unfold
superimposed on the elemtens of anger
/ fear / anxiety / hate / despair / remorse

so break from all that fear hold fast
exposed now turn to all you lack
let echoes be the answers
return from all the screams
wordless now the last attack
so silent it hurts to listen
was it always solid
...to never change?
therein lies the beauty

Zodijackyl Light

Crown the impulse that deliberately fall
defeat in spiritless action
Isolation - burn the greenwood
Order of the vertical path

Descendent
crawlin the remnants of one thousand lies
Restaging
torching a world that was left behind
Zodijackyl light

Cross the sharpest void
deride the embers of his fall
The bringer that on millions horses ride

Waiting for the call within, the spark of sin
ever reminiscent of the coming of storm
Can you see the cosmic face
in which disorder lies

Burning of oppression
the inventors
is the killing hand
Be that of the darkest sin
to frustrate hope and love

I shall not be blinded
I shall not be forced

Resistance
feasting on debris from celestial wars

Burning in the sky
beyond the realm of time:
Sequence if the nucleus
the glowing dust in fligh
Zodijackyl light

And they ride, they ride
the drama takes the lead
the beast of heaven their guide
Racing through the vastness
constellation disarray
that darkness could not have existed
that bares no witness to the light

Sweet endless
Perpetually plunge through interior vaults
So seamless
Joints of time cannot shackle the beast

Zodijackyl light.

Final Resistance

Disaffected, left to internal struggle
Let ring with the cries of disaccord
They told of outposts firm as trees
Whispers laid no basis for
The plunge to the chasm depths
Seen none, nor felt the safety
Perimeter alarm

I see the bearings of disaster

What can you tell me of the inside
Is it as bright as all can see?

To make a chemical stand
A final front to the days ahead
In attempt to tame their mineral estrangement
Smothered by the numeral that
Haunts each waking day

Request for countertmeasures
To state claim of this my cavern
None to take and none be given
As the window breaks to black
A process left to solitude
Is the action left undone
Answers left to echo
In the silent halls of none

Cast down the hopes and aspirations
Shut the windows tight
Everybody said No
Reset your fears and good intentions
Barred up for life
Everybody said No

This is the final resistance
