The aversion cast a shadow Since the moment I realized I'm conscious, a useless animal And how life begins to shrink itself As all I could see was the abiding nature Of time... Creeping down on me Lacerated by the arrows of clocks And a fragile circadian rhythm I begin to understand How the line is getting shorter Of the cycle of being Blurred in a parody Diminished existence bound By the faculties of time
Hope based in others Can turn your back On what cannot be undone Abandoned desires Knowing that you're gone Before it makes any difference Hands and mind Raised to the sky Dull, from the iron taste From the blood on your forehead Leaving a world That would have been Better off without us Failing, writhing Falling, cowering Hands and mind Raised to the sky Dull, from the iron taste From the blood on your forehead Damn my eyes Swallow me whole
Parallax 03:54
I forgot how To roam free Under the stars 'Cause all of my Instincts have Atrophied for life I'm caught in this endless disease Subject to be an instrument of tyranny The self-deception Worshipers of greed But to say it is a noble lie Behind the glow there is a dying light And I became the prey The natural slave to the heirs For this I have kissed thy ring This love no longer feels real For I'd rather cut off my tongue 'Cause I already don't have a voice The self-deception The bottom feeders All my prayers, all my vows All my anguish, all my scorn All misfortunes All famines Come with a price And if I've shown Respect at times Down below awaits The punishment to their souls
All is not lost is long forgotten When every gallows finally sagged And the prophets meet their crosses We will be left with stones and bones Maybe one day you'll see We are not here to rule and breed We should go extinct Before we cut down the last tree The spreading disease Spawned forth the devil The curse of humanity Castles burn in disbelief to my eyes We celebrate our greatness Losing our minds While we decimate everything around You gifted me with anger and contempt Your reckless actions turned into my despair I'm trying hard To survive with a block Of concrete attached to my back You gave me the carcass
The constant dissonance Of one single voice The sound of echo caused By these four walls The static sound Penetrates my bones Isolation is never enough I hear no voice but only lies Sentenced to failure I burst from my despair Finding pleasure in pain Absolute disappointment What if I'm worthless? Blissful and numb I sunk, ignorant Take all I am The past that I will be The mind is projected on it As in a mirror of eternity An immortal being is all men A way of saying that I'm nothing Take all I am
Never Again 02:55
There is a certain feeling in the air You can see the clouds coming The tension is clear Hear the drums of despair Banging from far away Wolves from the east Planting the seeds The threat to my liberties Detriment to all your needs The threat to my liberties For one arm a thousand fists There are those waving the flag of self defense And those seeking shelter in common sense The eagle has landed, claws sharped with fear Another chapter in the book of ignorance There is a certain feeling in the air You can see the clouds coming The tension is clear Too late for lamentations Watch life repeat itself Like vultures to carrion Seizing every chance Laudation of fools Carving their way We are sworn forever I said never again!
Discouraged and alienated Without truce or plans And still the scourge Won't give any solace Even if I'm reluctant Blessed me with my miseries Their martyrs march On hollow corpses They cut their wrists To welcome me with open arms The filth consumes me As it rips out my eyes I won't be tamed Resurrected from the dust Wind sculpted my face To resemble the grace That washed away And now I stand Rotting away With what we've learned Till our obituary If I could understand What all of this meant Laid on the hands of fate Engraved in myself
Let the pleasure destroy me For I have sinned Let the pleasure take The best of me Consumers of lust The product you will buy Swipe side by side Swallowed by the crowd Give me the pleasure And don't give me guilt Give me the pleasure All what I need I will find peace when the worms eat my flesh I will find peace when there's nothing left Watch me melting Behind dirty glass Watch me destroy all we've known Let pleasure take over pain Let it destroy me slowly. I am no saint
This is the relief I've been longing for Heal the wounds I chose to have. Withdraw with me slowly Into our true nature And leave this Hell in the past In apathetic isolation All life goes away Devoid of purpose Days go by Too much too little But never enough Fed like rats, We ate from the hand This perspective Won't change any of us I wish I could go back in time To retrieve the essence of existence Before it all falls apart
Let me smell the morning rain One last time, let me rejoice Simple pleasures at last Touch the earth and feel alive Lay my fingers in the dirt To hear the beat of my heart Real truth lies in lifeless eyes Wasting away what was never Destined to any of us... Damned into the endless solitude Without chance to bear a light I'm running out of remembrance While our sight greys and fades out Our minds are running dry Now there's nothing left to recommence I swallow in guilt We weep in loss Nail the coffin The balm is now venom
Despondency 03:24
I was heading To a degree of catastrophe From the start knowing why The imperfect beings we are A road to oblivion Abysmal downfall To quiet this mind That gnawed into itself, Troubled spirits Can greet the first signs of pain And I'm relieved I reach the final breath To find comfort In the midst of memories Everything I am is bound Everything I've done is bound In consequences That began with birth Which I'm powerless To alter at will, When right and wrong Are just as one Accepting both is accepting life How many days and nights Have rolled upon me? Awake before dawn Consumed by the fear Deep hours in the dark, Play with my fateful destiny Let the sun and the moon Dig a grave for me
