1.
I'm walking away to watch from a distance The disorder resolves into identity All distinctions are lies All I see is grey I want to escape the fray There is no reason, no reason to stay The dirty pursuit of happiness leads to nowhere Though I’m lost in a maze, I try to lose my way I’m conquering the grotesque I’m dancing in bizarreness O, I want to be, I want to be like the Baron in the trees So I am walking away Conquering the grotesque And I want to be like the Baron in the trees
2.
Agonizing hours lie ahead again Time stands still as time flies by, so ruthlessly (The) repeating formula buries me alive Every day when the sun goes down I’m overwhelmed by anxiety Another sleepless night lies in front me I’ve tried everything, but nothing works this time I beg for rest, O, so desperately I can close my eyes, but I find no peace Anxiety Every day when the sun goes down I’m overwhelmed by anxiety Agonizing hours lie ahead And time stands still I beg for rest, so desperately But my thoughts They never rest, they never rest So afraid of my dark thoughts They never rest, they never rest Time stands still as time flies by
3.
The truth of a moment never dies But seasons change without lies It’s bleak December yet I remember But I ceased to understand What once was near has become strange Perfection faded as time went by The smell I loved now I can’t bear First I admired, then turned away Everything has changed in one simple night All was lost at once / the mystique deprived Forced to dissociate / I wish I could explain Wish I could explain why we withered away Maybe I was too weak
4.
The mirror’s black / I can’t face the truth Searched for the missing frames and failed The veil of haze covers my stolen face While the skin I wear fades like leaves Whispers penetrate words no one understands Behind the masks the beauty ends When the dusty wind takes the light away In the dark alcoves poison creates souls I don’t know where to go / everything’s out of reach Hidden in the gloom / doubts have grown (my doom)
5.
The wretches are crawling and the cowards cry A reminiscence of fragility Like horrible vermin they’ve surrendered and fled, Now roaming through the dark I hope they find a place to hide They call them dirty, they call them incomplete A reminiscence of fragility Real heroes are scared and they don’t want to die They don’t want to die They don’t want to die / they don’t want to die But sometimes they die / sometimes they die
