Track Name: Baron in the Trees
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
Track Name: Agonizing Hours
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
Track Name: Withered Away
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
Track Name: Doubts Have Grown
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)
Track Name: Reminiscence of Fragility
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
