Les paroles

Can't you read the patterns, can't you see the
end what goes around comes around, here
we go again yeah.
Can't you read the patterns, can't you see
the end what goes around comes around,
here we go again yeah. Can't you feed your
senses enough to realize to see just how the
story goes, the way the pendulum strikes.

Rest my head on the mushroom dust
spending vacuum time. Mark her turns with
silver brush watching from the sky.

And there is no difference no rich and open
minds. No change no further evolution, no
wisdom earned by time. Where's the point
in racing endlessly when it's enough by far to
blow us clean. It takes the day when stars fall
from the sky before our hearts gets wider than
our pride.

I can see tomorrow with my rearview eye.
Our past will twist and turn again, I see the
mushroom smile



So call me the bitter man cos I do no longer
care. Tear off my skin, look deep in my soul
and I'll show the scars I wear. I'm not crying,
I'm not crying, I'm not the crying kind but
you're dying yeah you're dying cos you're the
dying kind.
And I've been to the end and I'll take you
there so don't make me think cause I don't
even care.

And I'll be happy to pour some salt in your
wounds cos I'd love to see you cry. So don't
trust my smile and don't trust my eyes cos I
promise you I'll lie and I won't waste my time
to prove you wrong cos it would take too god
damn long, take too god damn, take too god
damn, take too god damn long.

You wish you'd be once again the one that
wins in the end. Don't hope too much now my
friend. Don't hope too much now my friend,
let it go!

The words I'll never speak still echoes in
my mind just gaze into these empty eyes and
tell me what you find



Your time means nothing, a journey for the sun
A change of wind and weather into a different
kind. It's like you never passed upon this
golden plains. Your life was just a flash, I wish
I'd remember
The morning breeze threw sand in my face
But I will meet the day with dignity. I know
the secrets buried in this place. But I can't

I watched your father, I have seen them all
Owe the treasures of our land, I have seen
them fall and now the screams have died into
a distant world a place of joy and pride I still
can't remember

My limbs are carved in stone on the ground
I'm gonna stay awake forever. I know each
move every single sound but I can't remember

I've seen the centuries slowly pass me by
They may have marked my being but by god
I'm still alive. Days passed in dust of sand
against the crimson horizon. I feel the touch
of our fathers hand, I wish I'd remember



Scream to me, make me see why you are
crumbling. Build a grave one brick each day,
the beast is rumbling. Is it way too tempting
to rape that crying child?Is it so addictive to
tell another lie?
Suck the space in million ways, the fools
collision. The super rush, eternal buzz, the
freaks affection now I'm counting snowflakes
and the cattle herd makes my head start
spinning and my senses burn

Can you ever be forgiven for giving apathy
a prize. Can I ever turn my other cheek when
you kill before my eyes

I'm just a floating zombie. Don't wanna live
your life. I need to touch some substance
not just sugar for my mind. Now I'm counting
snowflakes and the cattle herd makes my
head start spinning and my senses burn



Tell me who I am. Look what I've become
what I've turned into. I'm not longer me
the one I used to be. I am made of stone
and you better believe it's true
Try to stop from falling down. You'll be in
hell much faster than you know

It's just not enough that I've killed myself
oh so many times, now I hardly exist
I am drained from blood cos you're in my
veins. I need to be set free from chains and
burdens, free from all that's old and crippled.
Won't try to keep warm what is dead. You're
on your own much faster than you know

Hey, I'll keep myself away. Hey, hey, just
keep myself away

Can't you see that I'm dying, fading away
I can't fight all your demons. You're too full
of pain.



I feel the touch of your hand sweeping across
our land. I see the work of your hand
spreading across our land
I know the changes, they are temporary
waves and they're never here to stay
but hurry now cos patience just don't live
forever and I feel like 100 years today

And when I die if I do. I've seen a hundred
of you and when I die if I do. I know just what
you do

There are days when I can reach up to the
sun days that couldn't go too slow but today
I'm at the bottom of the world yeah today I
feel so low

Yeah-It feels so hopeless in my grave
Yeah-It's like I'm mouldering every day
Yeah-I need a blizzard through my blood
Yeah-to drown my veins into the flood



I turn my face to a different place to taste the
air they're breathing there. I race with winds
through time and space to catch the marks
they are leaving. Raging screams from killing
streets. Their toxic wounds are bleeding
I drink your rain and sail your wave. The
black gold's in my face. A fire's burning in
my eyes. I've had enough of your ways

Take me home, take me home. I'll leave
your sins and dirty whores. Take me home,
take me home. I've seen the pain, her aching

I fled the southern hemisphere. I ran upon
the sea. I felt the tradewind through my hair
not for a second loosing speed

Take me home, take me home. I'll leave
your sins and dirty whores. Take me home,
take me home. I've seen the pain, her aching

I have travelled the world. I have travelled
the world. It's like the fate of humanity's
decided by my words

I climb the wall so afraid to fall, smell the
breath from the ground. Each grip I take every
move I make, you always bring me down

And I can't replace if you keep the pace
killing is for sale
The right hand steal and the other feed
we're running for our tail.



The shadow still remain. Reminds me of the
pain. It's shallow yet it's deep. But it's nothing
we can keep



I can't ignore the highway, I've got it in my
dreams. It's right beside my palace and just
above the sea. I have the stars around me,
sometimes I feel the world. And from the top
of his lighthouse we touch the universe
The western sky is bleeding, our view is
open wide. The sun is burning the city, this
valley is divine. I am the king of the hill now,
my senses are aroused. If I maintain the
balance my head will reach the clouds

I look upon my kingdom. I can't hold back
my pride. A perfect situation.

We're making 0 3 5



Peel away the skin that hurts. Peel away the
skin that burns. Turn away from all you know
turn away to save your soul
Peel away the skin that's cold. Peel away
the skin that's old

Will I ever touch the sun again. Will it blind
my eyes and ease the pain. Will I ever burn
my hands again nothing ever stays the same

See through the lies. See that nothing
ever dies, nothing dies, nothing ever dies



Crush the dreams within and do away with all
the joy and pride. Leave the past behind just
leave it all and heal the wounds inside. But I
will never hear, I'll never see. I'll never ever
trust again. But do you know and do you
care, to me it's all the
Crush the one that speaks. Just go ahead
and tear the world apart. And let them pay
just let them pay for tearing out your heart.
I will be the one that steals the smile that
steals the smile right off your face. And trust
me now that I'll be here, be there to count
your days

Can you feel the pain. Can you feel the
silent suffering. Can you ease the pain. Can
you make me wanna come alive. Can you make
me die

Don't let me ever hear your voice again
Don't let me ever see your face again
