No Lovers 02:43
“In the heat of the night Evaporate Before the shadows rise Don’t fight, let it go The blood knows Where the current flows So do as you please Alone and free Like a whisper in a breeze” Such pretty thoughts With grace imbued “The sun should wander in solitude” We could have been lovers any time But you preferred a life of crime You sent shivers down my spine Your touch went deep Your words into my mind “Break the morals and the walls There is only beauty in a star that falls” And you led me out of these dead ends I let you fly at my expense I owe you more than I could give Cause after all you’ve made me this I’m no more scared of standing still There is no emptiness to fill You hung the king and killed the queen Greatest thing I’ve ever seen We could have been lovers any time But we preferred a life of crime

Funny Lights 03:15
These funny lights climb so high And speak to me in many shades Can you hear them whisper? Can you hear them scream? I’m stuck between Devotion and disgust Craving for pleasure Bleeding from lust I can’t escape myself But I can run away from you Someday in another life I’ll prove it’s true The blurry lights must be destroyed They let me see the void They make me feel so weird They make me feel so cold I can see the night ahead of us And the lines I’ve never crossed Are we getting closer Or am I getting lost? I can’t escape myself But I can run away from you Someday in another life I’ll prove it’s true These funny lights Climb so high
3.
Avalanche 04:19
And while the clouds conspired The world was sound asleep And when the snow began to fall No one cared at all And the horizon disappeared Lights vanished from the sky And underneath the avalanche We began to dance Cause our gift to tame and taunt Made us feel so safe and sound As spectral gleams withered away Neon lights concealed the grey We rose above like little gods In a city reigned by dogs The violence that held us down Has become our own Below the silver chaos We are sunk in dreams The organs of the sky resound Unheard on frozen ground We celebrate the innocence Buried six feet under sins The violence that held us down Has become our own
4.
A never-ending hunger haunts our souls Hear the midnight hour mourn the golden peace Hunted by a constant fear of steadiness The dusk means nothing, when no one ever sleeps Who knows what tomorrow will reveal? We all feel this strange appeal So we roam the streets And everyday repeats In the City of Unrest (of Unrest) Great perfection always fades away And in the end the paradox alone has to suffice Why do we hesitate to compromise When everything we touch corrupts anyway? Who knows what tomorrow will reveal? We all feel this strange appeal So we roam the streets And everyday repeats In the City of Unrest (of Unrest)

Perceptions 04:37
Wish I could see me through your eyes To lose myself in the mirrors on your wall I’ve never seen me after all And when the curtains fall I just feel like a ghost upon the stage I know there is no god at all But I still can’t believe in me Wish I could touch me with your hands Because I can’t take off my skin To make me tangible at last; Or at least unreal to run away from this ordeal And I know you tried your best to help, But sadly words are weak, When it’s a language you don’t speak Time and again little wounds have grown Grown and claimed totality Your gaze will never penetrate my skin I’ve seen a light that glows within Burning inside, falling apart From the flesh, your mind departs Shards fly like feathers Mirrors turn into dust Too many colors Too little trust

Gravity 03:28
A gleaming fog conquered the galaxies Between you and me With silver lights it shaped the fallacies That led us to the dark Where gravity has failed And time has run away Where mysteries got bent And came to an end Where gravity has failed And time has run away Deep in the heart of the ether Explosions whisper Through a yellow haze But they always come to late So wherever we may walk We just delve into the dark Where gravity has failed And time has run away Where mysteries got bent And came to an end Came to an end
7.
He Smiles 03:29
Beneath the dirty sheets Beyond the golden glare From nowhere to despair He will take you there Those who crave for the sky Will fall from his lie And with the saddest sound They will hit the ground (Hit the ground) He crawls into their souls And destroys what he controls With the rotten beauty of the vile He looks in the mirror And he keeps his smile Chaos he creates Like god he degenerates The moon drowns in the lake The nightmares are awake With the rotten beauty of the vile He looks in the mirror And he keeps his smile Cinders will dance Through eternal nights And then turn into blood Cinders will dance Through eternal nights And vanish in the mud
8.
Let’s shake the night away And make this the longest day Let’s turn the world around And dance to the strangest sounds Take my hand and run with me Maybe we can make it through But the night falls ruthlessly And we are falling too The midnight veil of the dark Is like a coffin made of glass It reveals more than it hides Like the magic ocean tides In the abyss of the night We would shine so bright A relieving sacrifice But I’m too scared to pay the price For all the secrets that I keep I can never let you see me sleep See me sleep
9.
Angry Rivers 03:10
I’ve never felt this way I’ve never felt this fear Where do we go from here? And who will take us there? Will we fall prey to those Who pray for us with hate? Or will we bring the stars Down to earth at last? Under grey-clouded skies The angry rivers rise And close the windows to the night Under grey-clouded skies The angry rivers rise And in the ruthless gloom Their ugly sermons bloom Who has the answers now? What did we even ask? I hear familiar words From a stranger’s mouth They treat me like a child, But that I’m not Under grey-clouded skies The angry rivers rise And close the windows to the night They close the windows to the night They close the windows to the night

Echoes 05:28
Sweet poison escapes From dark and heavy lungs Touching deep what melts away Golden leaves left to decay When the clouds eat the moon And dead shadows loom Hear them howl, hear them sing Hollow echoes in the wind The sludge will pile up in their veins I’ve seen these ties turn into chains In the shelter of the night Far away from hungry eyes Where ivy cannot grow I remain to save my soul When the clouds eat the moon And dead shadows loom Hear them howl, hear them sing Hollow echoes in the wind The sludge will pile up in their veins I’ve seen these ties turn into chains
