The silent curtains of black are being Drawn upon the shades of heaven Your celestial body projected on the welkin Of my dreams, are dreams meant to be broken? Afraid to close my eyes, should I glimpse your skin I may not be able to open them anew To prevent this one dream from dying So you may haunt my existence, so I may live in you In my visions, the sun awakens Heating your presence After a warm night of shared romance Laid aside, we start to glide On the streams of bliss Within the warm embrace of a kiss Burning inside we collide Our ashes drifting In the fields, free as the wind The night sky has this knack Of letting you fly so high Until the silent curtains are drawn back Revealing the scars in a crimson sky

Unfathomable strange paradox Wanting to live in the lies of darkness The cruel and double-edged sun unlocks To a naked eye, all that's flawed, all that's flawless Truth is a thing we are bound to search for While reality is sometimes too much to afford I should have foreseen the outcome That loving but a myth that spawned from A mirage in my desperate and sore heart As distant as an illusion From the start, it has torn me apart Pushed my soul further into seclusion Sick of loving you, craving for you, I'm Sick of waiting and wishing for something That seems destined to never happen Sick of dying every morning Sick of these chains, this heart prison Sick of living in hopes of tomorrows For you and me, hiding in the shadows Sick of self-destructing forever Sick of being light years away from her Every dreadful morning, everyday I collapse under an unbearable pain That draws in when the stars all fade away The sun reminds me of how far you are, and in the rain I can finally hide the tears on my face Seems like I've retained them for too long Feels like I was born in the wrong place Feels like here isn't where I belong They try to take you away from me And I am so confused About reality, they say that I refuse To admit that you're a lie, am I crazy? Are you real Or my imagination? I reach to hold you into empty space Only to wake up in this lonely place Somehow, I don't wanna heal Don't want no medication Are you real Or my imagination? Tell me why I feel So much pain and desolation You soothe and crush my every bone I hate to say it but leave me alone You soothe and crush my every bone I hate to say it but leave me alone Sick of falling in ruin for something That is destined to never happen Sick of dying every morning Sick of these chains, this heart prison Sick of losing all hopes of tomorrows For you and me, fading in the shadows Sick of self-destructing forever Sick of being light years away from her Every dreadful morning, everyday I collapsed under this unbearable pain That draws in when the stars all fade away The sun reminds me of how far you are, and in the rain I can finally hide the tears on my face Seems like I've retained them for too long Feels like I was born in the wrong place I know that here isn't where I belong

Everything feels deaf now I’m trying to touch the sound of expression Everything so empty now Searching the words for meanings that are gone I can't even express myself I wanna shout, though nothing's coming out Emptiness surrounding me, entwined To the limbs of my mind Everything so pointless now I'm pouring ink of nonsense, insanity Everything looks blind now Just trying to grasp a sight of my reality Time sits idle in withering space So tired of feeling so out of place Another day, merging with a blank sheet Obsessed with unrevealed feelings That too many times I tried mending Another night, rambling over a blank sheet In the desert of a purposeless existence Can't you hear the echo in the distance? The whispering waves of an ocean of dust Is what remains of the ones that were lost Vanishing in sub-consciousness It's not long before madness consumes us Walking down a never-ending hall A thousand empty frames Hanging on the walls Finding the door in the end Won't fix what has once been broken Won't fill the abyss in your soul Won't fill this enigmatic hole Time sits idle in withering space So tired of feeling so out of place Another day, merging with a blank sheet Obsessed with unrevealed feelings That too many times I tried mending Another night, rambling over a blank sheet I don't know where I'm going anymore I don't know what I'm doing anymore Don't know who I am anymore Don't know why I'm here anymore Don't know when I'll rise from the floor Don't know how to open the door, home Don't know if I exist anymore This must be what they call the blank sheet syndrome Don't know what I'm doing anymore Don't know who I am anymore Don't know if I exist anymore This must be what they call the blank sheet syndrome Cannot cut the string of time When the hourglass flips, you can't hide A thousand days, waiting for a single line You keep falling while never landing Higher and lower with the tide A thousand nights, drifting out of your mind Of your mind

Out on the weeping oceans Of this cold-hearted life With blood-soaked emotions Under the pouring clouds’ strife Drifting far ashore I lie In this mortuary barge Fleeing my mind’s inner war On the sea, so lonesome and large There is no running away When you play with death It decays your soul And poisons your very breath And when the black tides split broad When the sky seems to frown Before such forces I’m awed ‘Til I begin to drown Tracked down by the demons of my own Losing grasp of reality Slipping off the zone In the whirlpool of my sins Darkness has grown And invaded me, infected me While I was alone Come with me, further in the depths Of my hell, and have a seat please Enjoy your stay, don’t be afraid Of death, tonight she’s my guest So be at ease With all my broken promises, I’m a wreck Sinking down, deeper in the abysses Where I endlessly drown In the coldest waters My blazing spirit shatters Like glass, falling apart The ramparts of my heart In the vacuum of time There ain’t no turning back I’ve crossed the impassable Line, and my heart has turned Black I had promised myself That I wouldn’t be like him No matter what I’ve been through But I couldn’t forgive him Couldn’t help myself not to hate The thought of his blood flooding into my veins I could not handle the pain Could not retain the anger that led me To take the life of the one who gave it to me And now I am sinking In a journey through the waves From the cradle to the grave The waves of destiny The black tide calling me A journey through the waves From the cradle to the grave

Part of Her 02:48
She's a beautiful young girl She dreams of traveling the world She lives in a quiet town She likes to spend her time Lying on the lawn Today she's been Waiting for the sunrise But the sky is grey Just like the sadness in her eyes For she's lost part of herself yesterday Since then nothing seems to be okay She didn't deserve to be the one To be given such a burden On her shoulders And except for her prayers No one will ever know The secret she conceals About a child that'll never grow And she cannot erase this guilt she feels

Something's silently sparkling In that smoky water glass A man's heart silently boiling As he hands it to the young lass A rather bitter taste His arms around her waist Confusion, daze and blurry eyes Her aching brain, pain and raging skies Unable to cry Unable to shout Shrivelling, clutching, choking feeling Worse than fire, somehow colder He left the room and left the poor girl Crooked and shaking In the corner of this befouled chamber She could not move Trembling like the teardrop in the Corner of her eye All senses lost, in this slow Melting frost, and pitch-black shadow Persecution of body and mind Lethal poison, that fatally binds Her heart with disturbed passion Everlasting fears Nightmares of unclear memories Heart-deep scar that still bleeds Tarnished and futile reveries Behind her tainted eyes Her sullied soul won't ever be the same And she still watches the sunrise But the colours now seem so tame Uncurable misery Stolen virginity Unspoken tragedy When the miracle of life is a fatality When life and death take place inside a body Numbness and dampened cries Coming back on the sunrise In the corner of a crime scene In daybreak light, in betweens Randomly searching the floor For pieces of her now impure Stripped and weakened body Of her lost integrity Grazed, scorched deep into her womb Haunted by a death she cannot assume Besmirched, for the rest of her life, feeling deprived For a heinous act, to be forever connived

I can see, I can recall us when Everything used to shine, the world had no end The smell of the trees floating in the air As we escaped in the sun, going nowhere To the horizon and farter Father… Another lose-it-all Another broken man Who couldn't take the fall Ends up in a bar Screwing up his life For whiskey in the jar Mommy tell me why Daddy's not the same Mommy stop crying You are not to blame Always learning too soon The meaning of dying I lay awake each night wondering Staring at the moon Dreaming Wide awake, I cannot close my eyes There's nothing under the bed, I know No monster in my closet, either The monster is downstairs, yelling at her Mother please tell me everything will be fine Mother please wake up, open up your eyes Give me just one last smile Always learning too soon The meaning of dying I lay awake each night wondering Staring at the moon Dreaming Daddy, what have you done? I hate you, look what you've become Give me back my father The one who would never hurt me Give me back my mother 'Cause I need her now, more than ever

It's killing me From inside Never felt so alone before A cold that stole the light I cannot hide I don't feel so alive anymore In this social sphere Dilapidated Despite this high pressure atmosphere As I walked down The shore of life I realized There's nowhere to hide From this uncertain future There's no escaping Our twisted future 'Cause in the end A needle In my brain And suddenly Everything is vain Dehumanize me Annihilate me Until I have lost All of my sanity “Desensationalize” me Materialize me Until there's nothing Nothing left of me As I walk in the Valley Of the Shadow and Death I fear no Evil For You are with me Your rod and Your staff Will guide me, lead me To another life 'Cause down here A needle In my brain And suddenly Everything is vain Nothing is real Anymore I cannot feel Down to the core All is fake But for God's sake Where has gone Our humanity Our inner symphony When none are one And one is all Engineered All is material Rebranded In this laboratorial Society Where are we When none are one And one is all We're no more Individuals Thoughts unspoken Hopes stolen Dreams broken Love forsaken In the fleaker that is life When did we decide To sacrifice Our inner symphony
