1. NO CONTACT

We’ll sear away together,
you won’t escape
Keep on tasting my blood
Have a next bite, don’t hesitate
For me, there’s nothing at stake

When I fall, I’ll destroy
Next of your kin, to feel the joy
I have tried, a link to make
There’s no contact, so here’s my rage

Another moment it takes
I follow you
Still, you bleed from my wounds
Poisoned by self-conceit

Open your eyes,
For a second to rise
For a second to mute the voice of
blind corruption
Spreading inside

But now it makes no difference


2. STRANGER FACES

Entering a terrain where
All the stars are shedding tears
Silence of their weeping calls
In a mire of deaf ears
A question echoes within
“Now, tell me why?”
The answer lies all around you
Just listen to your cries

(They bear your demise)

Faces, transparent shades of grey
Strangers, they blind the light of day
Features distorted to the core
One crush is all you need to break down the terror

Deep beneath the memories lie
Never shall they be revealed
Hollow figures left to stay
So familiar, yet so weird
Beyond the spiral edge
in frozen arms’ embrace
Dim reflections tell the story
Of a suicidal race

(They bear your disgrace)

Faces, transparent shades of grey
Strangers, they blind the light of day
Features distorted to the core
One crush is all you need to break down the mirrors


3. CRUST OF EGO

No chance to contemplate
No chance to smell your reek
You’ve arranged it all in time
Before I could even speak

Coercion Invisible
Hearing the same words on and on
How pleasant, how perfect
Singing the songs of pure repulsion

The crust of your ego asphyxiates, I can’t defy
That’s how you keep me forever mentally torn and blind

I’ve never known what it’s like to choose
I’ve never known what it’s like to find the clues
I’ve never known what it’s like when I decide
Bereaved is all I’ve ever been, choking in your pride

Drag me into this shell
Don’t let me fall astray
Impose your fate on me
And spare a life of disarray

Pretending delightedness
Consciously groping for your words
Descending to numbness
Tell me how it could be truly worse


4. ONE MINUTE SILENCE

Dying away inside of me
your beacon I watched helplessly
Taking everything away
Among the tears unshed I see
The frayed memories sunk down below
You knew them all, but you had to go

Now everyone is missing
Now everyone is dead
Silence suffocates
And makes me dream again

Just to tear me up into pieces
The hope for me it still remains
To feel in dreams I cannot feel
When awake i am, is so unreal
When dawn calls me to see the day
Only absence of your sight brings the pain

It suffocates…


5. WAVES

I have left behind the world
Of sounds I failed to hear
I just looked into the Sun and
An open door I saw beneath
Time has stopped and let me enter all alone
Nothing helps to find a way, in darkness will I roam

Seas without water, I see your glow inside
The eyes of the past and the rigid walls behind

Passing on a wave by memories I’ve never seen before
Twisted forms emerge, but the swamp of the blue sky
Faded my opaque horizon, when the years caught up with the Light

We are submerging
It’s drifting to us
Through the vast oceans
Of ever passing gods

Step through the walls
Like a ghost to kill the pain
When all the worlds we dreamed of
Now seem to be in vain

7. OTHER SELF

Time to face the fragments of the
Mind that was a part of you
Escaping from the slow decay
Dissolved into the darkest hue
Take a look at the face you had
The spark of hope in your eyes
Dreams abducted, instincts choked
All my visions paralyzed

Pain and pleasure showed the way
How to love or how to hate
We used to be one entity
Heading for a common fate
Emotions dried like wastelands
A drained and soulless body
A brand new wheel began to turn
In your divine machinery

You had my trust, but you needed their sympathy
You were my voice, but you let it be taken away

Born as one we were, the chains were never seen
Still the rust of conformity has eaten everything what you Have been

Contempt is my only fate, nothing else I can possess
Still I can hear you howling inside our mutual emptiness

Locked-up in a secret room
Behind the gate of sane design
I saw the filth soaking the walls
No matter how hard I defied.
The shield is torn asunder
The other self forced to its knees
They’ve infected all your thoughts
Through the screens of their disease

Fearing from the consequence
Of resisting the persuasion
Now you get what you have longed for
Enjoy your sweet deprivation
Nothing left to be afraid of
You will never be alone.
Among the selfless mob we are,
Rejoice now in the void you own

You had my trust, but you needed their sympathy
You were my voice, but you let it be taken away

Born as one we were, the chains were never seen
Still the rust of conformity has eaten everything what you Have been

Contempt is my only fate, nothing else I can possess
Still I can hear you howling inside our mutual emptiness


8. HOLD ME, THRILL ME, KISS ME, KILL ME (U2 COVER)

You don't know how you took it
You just know what you got
Oh Lordy you've been stealing
From the theives and you got caught
In the headlights
Of a stretch car
You're a star

Dressing like your sister
Living like a tart
They don't know what you're doing
Babe, it must be art
You're a headache
In a suitcase
You're a star

Oh no, don't be shy
You don't have to go blind
Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me

You don't know how you got here
You just know you want out
Believing in yourself
Almost as much as you doubt
You're a big smash
You wear it like a rash
Star

Oh no, don't be shy
There's a crowd to cry
Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me

They want you to be Jesus
They'll go down on one knee
But they'll want their money back
If you're alive at thirty-three
And you're turning tricks
With your crucifix
You're a star

(Oh child)

Of course you're not shy
You don't have to deny love
Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me
