Track Name: On The Quiet
You're a star
A true light in the darkness
The fire of passion
The spikes of envy
You're a mystery in a silent movie
You're the death in a romance
An agelong predator in the infinite sea
An everyday disappointment
You're nothing... like the rest of us

The fake image of yourself shines
The fake image of yourself shines
While the real you crumbles on the quiet
While the real you crumbles on the quiet
Track Name: To Old Endings
Body flies over soul
Body aches and overflows
Couldn't find
Couldn't hear
You were drifting out at sea

May the water give you peace
May you come back
May you never sink

What is ours?
What is lost?
Who's to blame now?
Battle won?
I don't hate you anymore
I just hope that you return

I'm a junkie in the sun
I'm an orphan, a renegade god

When the tide will fall
we'll recover everything
Not to grieve or mourn
but to hide inside our sleeves
Can't you understand?
None is lost, not you, not me
Just our hopeless cause
and our dreams in agony

Nowhere, none and forever
I don't mind
Faces in the material world
never smile
A monument of carnivores
All in time
Will vanish into oblivion
All in time
All in time
All in time
All in time

Fucking sharks (fucking heart)
They don't sleep (stubborn pulse)
Always waiting (memories)
Out at sea (I can't ignore)

I'm a junkie in the sun, I'm an orphan
I'm the equal of my wrongs,
A forgotten, degenerate god
Track Name: A Gore Fantasy
I wanted to know why
the dogs always bark around you
I wanted to know why
you darken and cover your eyes
A rickety bar plays
some moody old sixties hit-song
But no one will dance along
and no one will sing

It must be all fake
I must be imagining things
Am I out of bed?
Woke up in a gore fantasy

Or did I just blink?

I wanted to know why
you dress in the latest fashion
to help you forget that
you really are dead to us all?
I wanted to know just how
you're able to recognize me
Is something left deep inside
of your beating heart?

Is there?

It must be all fake
I must be imagining things
Am I out of bed?
Woke up in a gore fantasy
Hands over your eyes
before the next innocent bite
you hate and despise
but then again you shouldn't mind

Cause nobody does
and nobody tries
It's how we evolved
to fungus from mice

Wait, did you cover your eyes?
Just wait, you should really stop crying
It's strange how you cover your eyes
It's strange for a zombie to cry
Track Name: Ages Since
I hold on
as I promised you
and I buried
all the ghosts of truth
But the rain goes
and uncovers them
It's all over
It's all over

“What are you waiting on?
Someone else to show you that it's been
ages since you could appreciate
what your hands could hold?”

“There's nothing wrong
There's nothing wrong”

And I fall back
as you knew I would
and I reach out
where there's no one to
It's a false sun
It's a backwards sky
It's a memory
of an unconscious mind
It's a whirlwind
In an empty room
It's a drainage
Of an empty womb
Could it reach you
When I need it the most?
Could it reach you?
Could it reach you?

“What are you waiting on?
Someone else to show you that it's been
ages since you could appreciate
what your hands could hold?”

“Go back to your empty room
Sleep tight in an empty womb
Burn out in a backwards sky
There's nothing wrong”
Track Name: The Bipolar
Have I led you astray?
Ever held your tongue?
In the shadow of us
You must learn how to walk on your own

In the blank of the world
We will add our thoughts
“Was it worth all the pain?
Does something ever fills the void that remains?”

Despite of my faults
and my impotence
I carried your cross,
Digested the spikes and I felt it all
begin to dissolve
Should I crawl back to bed?
Should I start making sense?

What if everything's just
an unpleasant dream?
If I were to wake up
would I choose to just go back to sleep?

'Cause we like to repeat
the mistakes we make
Tiny heart, words obese
and a pet snake to match our instincts

Despite of my faults
and my impotence
I carried your cross,
Digested the spikes and I felt it all
begin to dissolve
You should crawl back to bed
Until you start making sense

Have I lost you in this muddy sea?
Is the barrel looking back at me?
Have I said much i can't take back?
Have I lost you once and for all throughout the times?
Should I start making sense now?
Track Name: Comedies Of Neutral Laughter
Silent,
you abide by the shades you chose to see
and so I begin to redefine your colors
Are you still the same?
Have you forgotten everything?
Is burying your head the answer
to your ill, infected posture?

I'm hanging from a thread

Sore, bitter end
for your lone desire
Time to close down
and avoid the sun
We lost our years
growling over this
Neutral black...

Still here?
I thought that I was overstating things
The ghost face,
the kind words that we're only left with
For you to ignore,
For me to incinerate
Forget my dire attention to detail
it's unbecoming

Why don't I ever learn?

Sore, bitter end
for your lone desire
Time to close down
and avoid the sun
We lost our years
growling over this
Neutral bleak...

Come quick, push the knife
closer to the bone
We died long before
you lost all control
Why don't you ever learn?
Sometime
We were…

Sore, bitter end
for your lone desire
Time to close down
and avoid the sun
We lost our years
growling over this
Neutral black...
Neutral bleak...
Neutral Black Comedy
Track Name: Nothing Important Happened Today
Will you be there when the pill starts working?
Will you be there for the side effects?
It's so easy to unleash the monster
It's so easy to forget it all

Another endless day
Another word you bury
I wouldn't understand it anyway
Is everything a hoax?
Is that all you can say?
Is that really all you are?
A human being?

All the time we spent in your disaster
All the drinks we puked onto your floor
It's a prison in your sleep forever
and all the nightmares couldn't wake us up

It's safe for you to crave
another disappointment
another empty wish into the sea
And fair for me to ask:
Is this a rule to live by?
Is this what a human being does?

If you keep sinking
I will never save you
Track Name: The Realm, The Queen & The Lost Boy
It takes a toll
on everything and everyone
and gives permission
to safely fall into denial
A golden prize
is kept inside the darkest room
and patiently waits for
the one who'll be left standing

(Left standing)

“We love the queen of queens
and we live in her dreamhouse
Watching the falling stars
We get hungry

(So hungry)

“You shouldn't think so hard
You shouldn't try to reason
Is it the biggest crime?
Or just the simple truth?

I am a breeding colony
A guinea pig so hungry
I am the boy you guided here
I am the last one standing

Whatever you want
Whatever the price is
Just let me believe I'm real
Inside of my home
Inside of my outfit
Just let me reside here
I am a product
You keep me updated
Just let me be needed

Just let me believe I'm loved
Track Name: Shadows of Our Best Intentions
A night alone after a kill
is worth a bottle and a breeze
The illusion of sanity
I fall to sleep, I redirect
I tend to easily forget
the sacrifices on my feet

In safety of what I know
and what I don't
I choose my audience
in a search for mates
I find my pack
I follow through
I tend to easily approve
the sacrifices on my feet
And I move on...

I earn, I win, I deserve
Plastic fish, plastic teeth, plastic body bags
I love, I own, I civilize
Nevermind the voices
Nevermind their screams:

Is my back a mattress?
Is there a mark for you to shoot?
I hate the way you kill me
by building castles on my wounds

We are rebuilding
We keep our heads above water
We are surviving
Until you show us how to live

All we say,
All we do
and all we could, if we would
Shadows of our best intentions
Track Name: To New Beginnings
Let's drink
to the face you hide,
to the place you hold
for the ones you kill

Shine
brighter every night
choose the first to go
into your whirlpool ride

And if there's nowhere else to go
then this must be home

A hole
in your burning chest
swallows all the light
into nothingness

Is there
A singularity?
Should we long for hope
down this empty pit?

But you can't keep everything
Some things must be returned
And eventually you'll grow old and small
and when you do we'll meet again
On new terms
We'll meet again

Shine
on the next to go
Suck another one
into your black hole

Into your black hole...

(Falling)
