LAW OF SILENCE

Looking at you with empty eyes

Mind wide open, down shut sight

You’re not quite what you once were

Always tied to my mistakes, all the wrong turns and clichés

In this prison called my life

Malformed anxiety is heavier than air, its everywhere

Malformed anxiety is heavier than air, reserving every chair

No matter what you say relapse is on its way

How on earth can I stay sane?

How on earth could I stay sane?

PRETTY PERFECT DIES

Oh, pretty baby, tonight’s the night

Hush, little birdie, you’re gonna die

Oh, such a happy joyful day

It’s perfect for you to go away

Hush pretty baby, tonight’s your night

Up to the heavens we’ll see you fly

Oh, little darling, you’re gonna see the light

In your illuminated, eternal night

Won’t you walk with me, my love?

‘Til there’s nothing left to walk past by

Come walk with me, my dear

I’ll help you face the truth, your end is near

ALIVE

In this life the grief and sorrow takes their toll

Feeling misplaced, insecure

There are thoughts that are too dark to be pulled out

Yet another day has come

But this keeps me alive

Keeping my head over ground

There are days you’ll feel your soul is a waste

A noonday demon conquered heart

And there are days you’ll find it harder to breathe

But if there’s a will, then there’s a way out of it

Cause this keeps me alive

Keeping my head over ground

This is the moment of our truth

And I’ve lost my faith, my trust in you

All of those days so insecure

Is there anyone out there who’ll help me out?

DECEMBER

All those years gone by

Not even once, no you never asked, do I cope?

When will this loneliness and shame fade away?

Those concerns you held, you say

There were no ways to help me out, either way

Humiliation, anger and shame

Don’t know how long I’ll take this charade of shame

When will this loneliness and hate fade away?

Don’t know how long I’ll take this game

I’ve already lost my fate

What did it ever become out of me, I fade away

Can you not free me from this charade of shame?

 HOLY CHARADE

You ask me out and hook me up, I do not know you, I don’t mind

You hold me up so tight I cannot move, still I’m not scared

My mind tied up of all this messed up crap, I’m so fed up

You lay me out just like a roll up map, but I don’t fight back

I feel you crawling up against my skin, With a strength from within

A handmade marionette is all I am, I don’t feel a thing

These are the days of our charade

I won’t let go of this marvelous parade

I won’t fight back

You hold me up against the wall and say, you won’t feel a thing

Not long before you turn your head away, that’s when I see you smile

I hear myself I’m screaming out my mind, out my broken mind

This is the moment when I lose control, You got me entwined

These are the days of our charade

I won’t let go of this marvelous parade

I won’t fight back this glorious day

I won’t let go of this marvelous parade

I won’t fight back

 BLACK LODGE

She sits there by the window

Gazing out as storm takes rage

Lighting her cigarette

Keeping her hopes high while she waits

Well the minutes they turn to hours

And the hours they turn into days

As her withered wishes tangle

Grabbing steady hold of the plans she’d made

Not letting go, no not letting go

By every burning minute

The loneliness keeps chasing

While her house burns up in flames

The loneliness keeps choking

Relapsing her into eternal haze

The yellow curtains tangle

As the flames start rising up high

Her illusions keep on storming

Inside her burning, raging head

And then she lays the table

Carefully sorting the cutlery out

Screaming “Dinner for two is now layed

Wreck on the table for all of you who stayed”

And again, she waits

By every burning minute

The loneliness keeps chasing

When her house burns up in flames

Her loneliness is choking

Relapsing her into eternal haze

WON’T GET BETTER

Been inside my house for a week

Air getting thicker, it’s hard to breathe

Can’t go out, but I swear, I won’t make the same mistake again

It won’t get better

Unless you open up your eyes for the enemy

Cause it is much easier

Going down that same old road once again

Once again we are back

Back to the square one of our track

Everything’s all gone, that once was mine, Your laughter vanishes with time

We fell much deeper

To the end of our road

Now I see things clearer

Everything’s all gone, everything is all damn gone

It won’t get better, unless you open up yourself for the remedy

Oh it gets much easier, once you open up your eyes 

ABSURDIA

We’re drifting high up over the moons

They shine bright and pass the light for us

There must be something wrong up here

It is too bright and cold

I wonder where you’ve been,

Back in those days when the stones were alive?

Was it your Siamese twin

Conjoined to, Attached to

Your every sin?

The wall of sound is breaking in

Is this really happening

Is there a savior

That’ll save us from the sun?
