Lyrics

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

The New Build

A human force stronger than logic
beyond the focus and the grander ideas
one microcosmos in this wretched piece of h**l
distant memories of what empathy we felt
no revolution in what they must overthrow
in on a secret we all know
the need that is our enemy

I don´t even want to see you
doing all the same things as me
don´t ever let this be you
knowing what it is that drives me

it´s all in the future
said with one foot in the grave
all in the plan of what we never could achieve
no satisfaction
we excuse ourselves from progress by post-altering our motives
stories set to match whatever beat that drives the impulse

whatever tune that carries through
what´s in a soul that rattles empty
in this one reality, too few

our reach is never wider than the depth of what we grasp
a vicious curse on all that we partake in/side the conflict
where no one is the wiser
a space invaded
a face evaded
my space invaded
selfish dosn´t begin to cover the sense
in this utopia of one to escape the argument
to put another filter on

Focus Shift

I think I just forgot
To pick up the shells
From my recent discharge
And you took the blame
Explanations falter
To ears fallen deaf
Wherever I go I get lost

A reference to something
That both of us knew
Nothing that favors the few
In the darkness electric we see
That silence has spoken tonight

I think I have lost my language
Whatever I´ve said I deny
I think I have lost my way
Whatever was missing is gone
I let my focus shift

Your face is a map
I fail to discover
Drowned the sounds
Lost in the order
It´s the look that stayed my words
The unblinking knowledge
Interlocked and holding
No stalemate to break
Take hold of the flame that unites
In the silence that speaks to me now

I think I have lost my language
Whatever I´ve said I deny
I think I have lost my way
Whatever was missing is gone
I let my focus shift

I struggle to find the words
That negate my meaning
I fail to comprehend
What message is given

I decline the steady hand
That leads to rejection
Tempted by the closure
With no sense of pride
Drown the fury and swallow the fire
Drown the fury, swallow the fire

I think I have lost my language
Whatever I´ve said I deny
I think I have lost my way
Whatever was missing is gone
I let my focus shift

The Lesser Faith

Dreamt up a new word today
In my ignorance I gave it meaning
Who was I to know
To say it is to know it
To hear it is to believe, is to believe

I dreamt the world would end
I was not wrong
To doubt, to discredit
The words I´ve heard before
From inside a shell pretending

It´s all you´ve shown your faith
And what you´ve always known
So lay your trust in the unthinkable
It´s time to justify your lesser faith

It´s all your faith has shown
And all you´ll ever know
Why do you matter, you´re insignificant
How can you justify your lesser faith?

To know it is to fear it
To fear it is to say no, is to say no
To the blazing highs and lows
I know I´ll fail
To break, to cast it down
You take your lead
From a staff that must be broken in two

It´s all your faith has shown
And all you´ll ever know
Why do you matter, you´re insignificant
How can you justify your lesser faith?

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

Lost To Apathy

The unsaid tone of weak despair
fail to resonate
frayed ends of our binding
threads will disintegrate

By laws our physiques state
failure to communicate
none too sentient hear no,
see no works its magic against all function
ongoing choices the trials will end
filter the nonsense and laugh at what´s left
indecision / nonvision
what matters taken away

Look at the shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak
Soon the battle is over
Lost to apathy

So overcome with pointless tears
to test pain receptors
nothing matters ever here
put up a nonreaction
these eyes will never see
covered up from reality

The unknown world that you deny
no priority
cannot fail if you never start
how predictable
i want to know where did it end
for madness to start
always the skeptic and never be part
introvertive/nondescriptive
it matters not
not

FreeCard

set against these hardest hours
anger paled, for in this fear
the theft of privacy
we all see it break sometimes,
see it tear us apart
that which left behind
screams out loud this night
so much is asked in silence
expect not and you´ll find
thousand miles
from the nearest truth
rotating, entangled
- I continue not to heal

another no-night
waits its turn
so I call upon
my freecard
to postpone

if time was one with many faces
which one would call to me?
where all our paths in one now end
that with the power to gather the mislead
now will lead them all astray
so push it ever further
to unsuspecting dark
build that second layer
for the hours to take fast

a rest from the giving
like a heart between beats
greater than the need
for community
the need for the right solitude
come to know

that an outrage is inevitable
through many try
an escape is unsuccessful
in the midst of a nerve-night
the victim of soulkill
true self is mere torture
death rides these nerves

Inside The Particle Storm

Inside the particle storm
Where clouds of napalm shimmer
With the promise of one final dawn

Inside the particle bliss
Where ages collide into nothingness
Obliteration´s one final kiss

A claw in the garden of eden
Clogging the bloodstream of birth
Tearing a hole in the fabric of life
The horizon enriched with scars

Inside the particle blaze
A chamber of dissolution
Proclaiming the end of days

We leave now
Nothing will follow, nothing at all
The cleansing flames of entropy
To devour us all

Our lungs are filled with sarin
Our children drowning like dogs
Handcuffed to the weight of cold dark matter
Without purpose, meaning, or name

Inside the particle storm
The poison gene of humanity
Nullified

This is the moment
When black ships anchor to the sky
The heavy hands of chaos
Descend in merciless demise

Nothing To No One

Force it to begin
Spark the flame
To firebursting sin
Doctrine denied
Over and over again

Keeping death of all things private
Expose this failed creation
What is done is dead
What is done is dead

To be content, an abomination
Are you satisfied
Are you done with this

The ultimate rebellion
The sacrifice is endless
The ultimate rebellion
Be nothing to no one

What´s in a true life?
Behind the crumbling walls
Of dream and infant illusion
Action without movement
Desire without heart
It is over and done
It is over and done
To crave for touchless objects
And fathom without eyes
The fall of all things personal
That no one sees

The ultimate rebellion
The sacrifice is endless
The ultimate rebellion
Leave nothing to no one

Awaken to the screams
Of unresolved
Demands and accusations
Words are free

These are the outer symptoms
Of inner detonation
Will force us to inaction
Rid us of resolve
Take the burden off me
Lead me to my grave

The ultimate rebellion
The sacrifice is endless
The ultimate rebellion
Leave nothing to no one

Edenspring

Time conceals itself in error
When all is turned to lie
Oh blissful rapture flee from me
The liquid light shares its grandeur
The spring of Eden shall never run dry
Creation holds its breath

Tomorrow is no friend of mind
Drench logic - Drench judgement
Awake - Every sense is new

For we know no tomorrow
And yesterday appears in fragmented form

What now must burn
Shall with newfound strength emerge
Drift my eyes
Bacchi gates bid me welcome

Drench logic

Drench judgement

So drink from the fountain everlasting... drown

With these eyes the land can no longer deceive us

He cried into nothing with the voice of his soul
New logic brought upon the remains of his land
The land deceives
Bacchi gates bid me welcome

Drench logic - Drench judgement
Awake - Every sense is new

For we know no tomorrow
And yesterday appears in fragmented form

Insanity’s Crescendo

Gently hold our heads
gently hold our heads on high

Aimless time in fear new hide
overthrow the plan
confusion lies in all my words
mad is the soul

We barricade ourselves in holes of temperament
this is the dawning of a new age
A heart that beats the wrong way
insanity´s crescendo

Windcolour - second sight
a touch of silence and the violence of dark
Illusion span - the aroma of time
shadowlife and the scent of nothingness

Infinite fall of instinct
order of one spells deceit
Infinite lack of trust
order of one obsolete

Oh escaping time is all we lost ahead?
When it´s found, can judgement make amends?

From force-fed impressions
let us mortify the mind
each soul to violate
each instinct to be rendered false

Torn asunder be the conventional forms and frames
now for the blood of heaven
Unlearn and the cleansing comes

Fell a tremor in the pillars of the senses
Cursed victim of a distance near
The first dreams - the clearest vision

Aimlessly steer towards our night
we belong to thee
Oh dearest bliss, unnerving silence
entangled within

Dimly begotten in clarity found
virginlike tears for impurity bound
Beseech he who darken the stars and the sky
to greet now this vision an emerald dawn

Empty the sun - carve out the wind
Insanity´s crescendo
tear out the blinded eye

Lament of thunder - take comfort in fear
lightning veins in crude exterior
Voice the oppression - voice the hypocrisy
lay down the law that made instince fall

Escape now and revert
this cleansing rebirth
torn asunder be
Affect me not; darkened vision
insanity´s crescendo

Grimly tread the footsteps torn
rebellious stand the seeker tall
The thorn of insanity´s hand
take this darkened vision from my sight

Nailed to the image of ignorance
Each soul to violate
for the blood of heaven

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.

Dreamlore Degenerate

For thou sweepst me
in thy ribe if guill
with garments forged
in spiteful steel
No tainted pride
shall make conviction cease

None shall be unto thee proven
worthy of thy outmost fear
Let alone the silent longing
instinct shun the ones you dear

As the hunter boldly stalks his prey
intoxicated
Conviction reigns where truth might sway
intimidated

Silence the bore
Shun the ones you dear

The hunt is over
so the feast begins
What feast is enduring
when all is said and done
Everchange of hearts

The hunter´s reason fail
The hunt is treason

The hunt is over
so the feast begins
Why search for endurance
when all is said and done?

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

My Negation

It´s all this reeking ego
craves the sun to never set
why do threads of anger never linger,
why does the ember turn to stone?

To where the longing goes in
with the sins of old
a face of nothing,
to never see as blind
as free
everything I want is in the end of this
everything I need will be the end of me

My negation
Will you know my name?
And sense the danger coming
My negation
Can you see my face?
What´s to become of me?

The art of reduction
Stripped down through what seems defendable
scaled to bare revisions to stop making sense
levelling pillars of towering fear
rational instincts and insight to spare
end of falseness
end of grace
everything I fear is in this failing
nothing of what I am is in this end

The Mundane And The Magic

Seen through these dreamless eyes
Blind buildings stark to the sky
Silhouettes as dividing walls
Guarding the eternal secret
Where is the flame to haunt you
Who do you answer to
My lies are always wishes
Lies that make me
See beyond the rationale
Accept the fate that nothing is meant to be
Be the least connected
Stay true to the last original

Apply layers to reality
Things only you can see
Add a beat to normality
To tap the core of insanity

I let my dreams cross over
To days of endless gray
If I could merge the mundane and the magic
We´d forged a new unknown
I let my dreams cross over
To nothingness and back again
If I could merge the mundane and the magic
Where is the dark I came to find

In latter days as time will find you
Memories will never let you get closer
The silent sighs in useless company
Wish for darkness and death again
In the face of ignorance and fear
I cast it right back
Some things were never there to begin with
Objectivity is truth denied

Apply layers to reality
Things only you can see
Add a beat to normality
To tap the core of insanity

I let my dreams cross over
To days of endless gray
If I could merge the mundane and the magic
We´d forged a new unknown
I let my dreams cross over
To nothingness and back again
If I could merge the mundane and the magic
Where is the dark I came to find

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

Terminus (Where Death Is Most Alive)

This is a ghost town
Alive with the echoes of failures fled
Lit up by shining faces,
That parade these streets
What used to be
Of humility is gone
You walk the mounds
Of skull and bones
Where living is denied
I see more movement in decomposition
Than in those hollow eyes

It is the only place I know
Where death is most alive
It is when truth is turned to lie
That death is most alive

Set flame to the ensnarers
And pierce that ornate shield
Branded by what claims you
You wear the mark of death
Tear from loss and agony
A character defined
Stripped of all but tragedy
What life is left to find
Go now, until there´s nothing left
Go now, the dying has begun

It is the only place I know
Where death is most alive
It is when truth is turned to lie
That death is most alive

So I flee from all that is me
To hide behind this pale dead face
Whatever happened to desire, want and need
Whatever happened to integrity
Imagination is a curse in all of this
Whatever happened to the ones left behind

This is a ghost town
Bodies dragged through endless streets
Go now, to never return
I´ve seen more pitiful humiliation
Than you could never hide

It is the only place I know
Where death is most alive
It is when truth is turned to lie
That death is most alive
