Lyrics

Zero distance

Heeey
What is your life about today?

A pit of emptiness
A close resemblance
To what you thought was right or wrong
You don´t belong
The face you hold is false

Drawn to the darkest emotions
Sworn to the vortex of grief
Disguised as empathy
It´s not supposed to be
I know you´re faking it
So take a look around

[Chorus]
Zero distance
From where do you see yourself?
Zero distance
How far are you willing to go?

A broken perspective
That you impose on the innocent
Your fallen set of standards

You go beyond what is decisively human
Take from others what you do not have
What you cannot own
Wear the mask
Be the mask

You hide behind
You´re not supposed to see
I know you´re faking it
So take a look around

[Chorus]
Zero distance
From where do you see yourself?
Zero distance
How far are you willing to go?

Zero distance
Can you see what I see?
Zero distance
How far are you already gone?

To the end of what you fear
Take a hold of that outmost misery

Oh!

I want to see you show
Disgust for sympathy
Honour and bravery
I know you´re faking it
So take a look around

[Chorus]
Zero distance
From where do you see yourself?
Zero distance
How far are you willing to go?

Out of gravity

Each and every night
My heart shoulders the armour
And charges into the dark
To slay what took you from me
But there in the eye of the prey
I see my reflection
The armour now shatters to pieces
Until I hear the call again

Alone I set out to find you
Below the timeline
Alone and far from the stars
I walk out of gravity

As lightning scorns the night
And conspires with the sunken seas
Out there are hunters of the invisible
Tacking mere dust for days
On cracked soil now they walk
On ground that has lost it´s hold

Alone I set out o find you
Below the timeline
Alone and far from the stars
I walk the nether paths

In void-like silence
Through veins of man
A new disease breaks our ground
By venomous sorrow´s hand

It caught me by surprise
The sudden weight of my own blood
Gravitate towards the end
A pull that offers no option

So steep my longing
I give in to vertigo
Whipping of cold black tongues
Poisons my wounds

Alone I set out o find you
Below the timeline
Alone and far from the stars
I walk out of gravity

To where fires cannot feed

We throw ourselves
Like rocks against the heavens
To call to us attention
And set our sights for higher ground

Weaved within the nervous system
Of our planet and the vows we keep
The dormant fragments
Of self-destructing code

Into the emptiness
Where fires cannot feed
No way to hold
The burden of love alive

We nod at each other from across the open plain grave
And go to memories to visit our own lives

We hide in the bodies of greater beings
Together as one in the face of endless trials

You carry my life
Inside you my only witness
Our hands held against
In suffering

Into the emptiness
Where fires cannot feed
No way to hold
The burden of love alive

The bow and the arrow

the print you left
bear just witness
to the forceful push
with which you thrust yourself
out from this world
your own very being
launched away from this
temporary hold

you are never gone
the letters of your name
a scar that never heals

so be the bow and the arrow
be the rope and the angered scream
as time now eats away
at the unmarked graves
and indifferent winds take speed
over lands of uncertainty
to hold what can be held
against the coming dark

in the minds of the hollow
hollowed out
your words rang once so true

you are never gone
the letters of your name
a scar that never heals
you are never gone
for you are ours now
we hold you in our hearts

there are still tremors
the occational sparks
a voice unheard
from the empty void (you left behind)

we can still feel it
your body turned loose in the darkness
grief as the razor
within these walls of skin
to the end of forever
to the end

you are never gone
the letters of your name
a scar that never heals

so be the bow and the arrow
be the rope and the angered scream
you are never gone
as indifferent winds take speed
over lands of uncertainty
you are never gone
