  • blood on the tightrope

    don’t look down
    don’t hesitate now
    just so you now
    there’s no return

    halfway across
    high above the fractured city and life
    soon it will all be over
    but you have to move forward

    don’t look up
    don’t daydream too much
    just so you know
    there will be blood
    even if you stay neutral

    no matter how hard you try
    to shut down you your feverish thoughts
    they hunt you down with no regret
    cause you have to fix it all

    so you did fairly well with the goals you set for your pride
    and even though you’re like a tightrope walker with a fear of heights
    and your legs wobble and your arms helplessly flail around
    you strive to maintain the highest level of not giving up

    but no matter how hard you try
    to shout down your feverish thoughts
    they hunt you down with no regret
    cause you have to fix it
    you have to fix it all

    every day
    every night
    we walk the line
    trying not to fall

    every day
    every night
    we’re getting close
    then we lose control

    we rise
    we shine
    then we fall down
    in love with the moon
    waiting for the sun

    every day
    every night
    we walk the line
    trying not to fall

    every day
    every night
    we’re getting close
    then we lose control

    with shattered minds
    with broken hearts
    in love with the moon
    waiting for the sun

    for the sun we are waiting for the sun we are waiting
    for the sun we are waiting for

    anymore

    i want to tell you about something
    you don’t talk to me anymore
    want to share my innermost desires
    you don’t talk to me anymore

    i need to show you what i’m like
    what i’ve achieved
    what i have understood
    then you might tell me you are proud of me

    but you don’t talk to me anymore
    i want to show you my words on paper
    but you don’t talk to me anymore
    just want to say that i am sorry
    but you don’t talk to me anymore

    i need to show you what i’m like
    what i’ve achieved
    what i have understood
    then you might tell me you’re proud of me

    but you don’t talk to me anymore

    crumbling teeth and the owl eyes

    sleep on tight
    my little girl
    please do not wake up
    i am selfish
    for i need
    something from your dream
    a little patch
    that will cool me down

    there’s no land of unicorns
    and no rainbow stars
    you are growing up so fast
    but you still believe and fly so high
    without falling down

    stay with me now
    all my dormant fears are coming
    back to my mind
    it seems that you’re the only one who can
    help my heart get through the pain

    and the sound
    like far-off drums
    hammers in my head
    i can hear them getting ready
    i know they’re coming for
    what’s left of my soul

    let me steal a part of your
    childish innocence
    let me sit down by your side
    pull myself together
    and deny
    that i’m falling apart

    stay with me now
    all my dormant fears are coming
    back to my mind
    it seems that you’re the only one who can
    help my heart get through the pain

    sleep on tight
    my little girl
    please do not wake up
    i am selfish
    for i need
    something from your dream
    a little patch
    that will cool me down

    you came to my gloomy world
    lightened up my sky
    thanks to you i’ve realized
    what i am still afraid of
    i’m afraid for you

    stay with me now
    all my dormant fears are coming
    back to my mind
    it seems that you’re the only one who can
    help my heart get through the pain

    red light escape

    i’m locked in a room with no escape
    no description key
    no clue how to begin
    the countdown clock is on the wall
    4 red digits have invaded my soul

    soothe the pain
    my body hurts
    just take away
    what lies within
    help to forget
    unlock my true addiction
    set me free

    borderline is crossed again
    i can get beyond myself
    two years of sobriety
    i know i gave up
    but i have to feel

    just put me to the test
    it’s time to play our game

    soothe the pain
    my body hurts
    just take away
    what lies within
    help to forget
    unlock my true addiction
    set me free
    borderline is crossed again
    i go beyond myself

    just put me to the test
    it’s time to play our game

    fractured

    through your stormy waves
    through your crumbled walls
    through your broken sky
    through your fractured soul

    a thousand shards of heaven

    you can say that i belong to
    all the moments
    that i couldn’t let
    sink into my oblivion
    you can say that i’m yearning
    for something that’s already gone
    but i’m not a prisoner

    i want to feel what it’s like
    when sorrow turns into strength
    i want to feel what it’s like
    when there’s no screeches in my head

    you can say that i’m chasing
    something that is unattainable
    so you know my way to survive
    you can say that i’m surrounded
    by the ruins of my previous life
    but i am not a prisoner

    i want to feel what it’s like
    when sorrow turns into strength
    i want to feel what it’s like
    when there’s no screeches in my head
    i want to feel what it’s like
    when dreams of mine don’t leave a mark
    on my battered heart

    you can say that i belong to
    all the moments
    that i couldn’t let
    sink into my oblivion
    you can say that i am yearning
    for something that’s already gone
    but i am not a prisoner

    i want to feel what it’s like
    when sorrow turns into strength
    i want to feel what it’s like
    when there’s no screeches in my head
    i want to feel what it’s like
    when dreams of mine don’t leave a mark
    i want to feel what it’s like
    when what i lost comes back to life
    to heal my battered heart

    a thousand shards of heaven
    staring at the stars

    a thousand shards of heaven
    drinking coldness from the night

    i collect my story
    under the fragmented sky
    traveling through my wasteland
    praying for the rain to come

    i need your every tear to save my life
    i need your every tear to save my life

    battlefield

    when i had to kill
    for the first time
    and most of them just went away
    i fell into your arms
    my sweet-lipped goddess of indifference

    memories were leaving me
    one by one
    slowly dying out
    a few of them
    like the stones
    stuck on a battlefield in silent cry

    the wind was blowing
    and the song that he sang to me
    was so beautiful and so fragile
    all i have left alive
    was crying out my name
    wanting me to come back

    when i had to kill
    for the second time
    and all of them just went away
    i got up from my knees
    and became a man
    standing over the boy’s grave

    shadows were trying to get inside
    while the vultures were circling in the air
    the dust has settled
    and the field
    uncovered part of me
    i couldn’t recognize

    i’m learning to live
    with phantom pain
    trying to get used to the brighter light
    i’m taming the ache
    new scars on my face
    the days when everything inside of me collapsed

    dreams that have gone
    and my weaknesses
    hounded and scared
    rebuilt their barricades
    on my battlefield
    they got a second chance
    feeding on my remorse
    dwelling on the past

    the fiery red cracks in the sky
    what has gone to pieces will not take hold of me
    standing upright
    with open eyes
    when tears have turned to fists
    feel my time has come

    and the broken hearts will not break through my mind
    and the broken hearts will not break through my mind
    and the broken hearts will not break through my mind
    and the broken hearts will not break through my mind

    moving on

    we
    have
    taken our world apart

    lost our faith
    sealed inside the plastic life

    intimidated and resigned
    we wait

    turned away from each other

    we failed
    for we did nothing about us

    promises
    empty
    and full of lies

    i have a chance to save my last
    shreds of time

    follow my instinct
    i’m not afraid to try

    done with your failures
    you blame me for

    i’m moving on
    i’m moving on
    i’m moving on
    i’m moving on

  • Shutting Out The Sun

    Confided inside
    Every night/day
    Locked in the shell
    Desolate self

    Lost track of time
    In fanciful life
    Locked in the shell
    Desolate heart

    Prison of my own making
    Self-imposed solitude
    Fortress of my own making
    Within my soul
    I'm fallen

    Cold

    Cold illucid world outside
    Dim, amorphous silhouettes of hope
    Trying to retain their shades
    By praying to the sun

    I press my face against the pane
    Stuck inside a container called myself
    Watching all these blurry faces yearning to be sharp
    Hiding from the sobbing noise
    And resounding laughs

    But there’s something beyond that draws me in
    I abandon my shelter when the crowd thins out
    I go there when the warm night falls
    Stay behind the yellow line
    Insecure

    Maybe one night
    I dare to forget
    I dare to try
    I know you are waiting
    Somewhere at the edge of us

    There’s something beyond that draws me in
    There’s something beyond that draws me in

    Gutter

    They crawl out from the dark
    Permeate through my door
    Float in the hallway
    Slowly blend into the walls

    In the shadow of my grief
    I can hear whispered sounds
    Feel a cold breath on my skin
    Here they come
    To assert their rights

    The fear is what I need, what I need to believe
    The fear is what I need, what I need to feel

    And so i dragged myself
    Into this gutter of mine
    Where shades of prey
    Feed on my soul

    I crave to commit my words
    To the book of stifled cries
    I fell down so long ago
    I don't remember now

    The fear is what I need, what I need to believe
    The fear is what I need, what I need to feel

    And so i dragged myself
    Into this gutter of mine
    Where shades of prey
    Feed on my soul

    Stars Sellotaped

    (Instrumental)

    The Fear Within

    (Instrumental)

    6. Treehouse

    I deface
    All the dreams that followed
    And deformed my mind
    When i fell into your heaven

    Now i bend the spoons
    As i bend the reality
    I warp the truth
    As i warp the time inside my head

    I deface
    All the dreams that followed
    And deformed my mind
    When i fell into your heaven

    Now i bend the spoons
    As i bend the reality
    I warp the truth
    As i warp the time inside my head

    Can you hear
    All is quiet
    It feels all right
    I guess i fell into your heaven

    Pygmalion’s Ladder

    So maybe I shine by reflecting light
    And in the world of fiction I've settled in
    Condemned myself to solitude

    Light and dark
    My home
    Despair
    Laughter and tears
    My voice and your touch

    So maybe I'm damaged beyond repair
    Asleep in my ivory-cage with shutters down
    But I retrieved my dreams of us

    Light and dark
    My home
    Despair
    Laughter and tears
    My voice and your touch

    ***

    Embraced by distorted clouds
    My lucid nightmare is back again
    First waves of the rising tide
    I run away from the flood of bile and filth
    I reach out my hands to you
    But I drown in the murk with my silent scream
    Suddenly!
    Suddenly!

    Sky Drawn in Crayon

    Finally
    I feel calm
    Anxiety disappeared
    There's no pain at all

    Finally
    It went away
    There is no regret
    I know
    I understand

    I can breathe
    A sigh of relief
    I accept the end of my
    Closed reality

    I need a sky
    Innocent sky
    I feel like i left
    My shell behind

    The room full of light
    Is tidied up
    I drew back the curtains
    And removed all my doubts

    I need a sky
    My moonlight and my sunset
    Drawn with a trusting childlike smile

    Walking on a Flashlight Beam

    Silence
    How long am I here?
    No sorrow
    Maybe just one tear
    Frozen
    Somewhere in my heart
    I close my eyes
    Please don't wake me up

    All my nights
    I lived behind the pane of glass
    With my stars sellotaped
    Above inside
    In the midst of that
    I've been searching for you
    Walking on a light
    On a man-made moon

    I now float into
    The darkest realm within
    Where time never ends
    It sleeps in the field of the evermore
    Between different spaces
    I dream where I belong
    The time will never end
    And I will not fear the falling anymore

    All my nights
    I lived behind the pane of glass
    With my stars sellotaped
    Above inside
    In the midst of that
    I've been searching for you
    Walking on a light
    On a man-made moon

    I now float into
    The darkest realm within
    Where time never ends
    It sleeps in the field of the evermore
    Between different spaces
    I dream where I belong
    The time will never end
    And I will not fear the falling anymore

  • The In-Between Kingdom

    (Instrumental)

    Otherwhere

    I am becoming
    In the realm of unknown
    Beyond unending
    Time
    Space
    And form

    I was buried for rebirth
    Casting off the old
    Born into the spirit
    From within I come

    Escape from sorrow
    No beginning
    No end
    Return to whiteness
    The new loneliness

    I was buried for rebirth
    Casting off the old
    Born into the spirit
    From within I come

    Suspended in Whiteness

    a) This Heaven
    Soon after the awakening
    I flew up in the air
    I was a snowflake floating
    Through my heavenland
    As light as a feather
    An ash
    Like a grain of sand
    From the white desert
    And the misplaced time
    I really need to find

    I was a drop of water
    From the pool of life
    Since my burden's gone
    I am the calm inside
    This heaven makes me light

    b) Don't feel alive
    The sudden flashback stirs in my head
    I see the boat
    I see the ferryman
    Recall my choice
    Recall the words he said
    So where the heaven am I now?
    Where the heaven am I?
    I don't feel alive
    I don't feel alive
    I feel nothing

    My lips are tightly sealed
    My mind is blank
    And every part of me is paralyzed
    The scattered bits of my consciousness
    Are suspended in the whiteness
    Another stage of my path

    I don't feel alive
    I don't feel alive
    I feel nothing

    Asoulum

    I can't move
    Belts are too tight
    Four bare white walls
    Garish light
    Awake!

    Welcome to my travel berth
    It's about time
    To cleanse all those hurts
    And return

    I won't go
    Cause I'm in the soul asylum
    I can't go
    Cause I'm in the soul asylum
    I can't move on
    Cause I'm stuck in the soul asylum
    Please don't erase my name again

    Something appears next to me
    I follow it
    I am led to the edge of bright

    I watch as this place starts to change
    It takes on all kinds of different shapes
    Twisted screaming faces lash out from the walls
    Fear permeates through my soul
    I hear the moaning
    Voices from my past
    I'm sinking in the sea of returning cries
    For good

    I won't go
    Cause I'm in the soul asylum
    I can't go
    Cause I'm in the soul asylum
    I can't move on
    Cause I'm stuck in the soul asylum
    Please don't erase my name again
    Not again

    Limbo

    (Instrumental)

    Escape from ParadIce

    Thought I was healed
    Cause I felt something different
    When you took me above
    To this place
    Your pride
    The Ice Palace stood
    On the top of the mountain
    You said
    There are bars in the windows
    But a great view outside

    Help me
    Help me end my lie
    Cause I know I will not take it anymore
    Help me
    Help me end my lie
    I've got a fear of heights
    In this perfect world

    It's time to fall

    Help me
    Help me end my lie
    Cause I know I cannot take it anymore
    Help me
    Help me end my lie
    I've got a fear of heights
    In this perfect world

     

    Thought I was healed
    Cause I felt something different
    When you took me above
    To this place
    Your pride
    Everything there was so pure and ideal
    You said
    Look as much as you want to
    Only try not to touch

    It's my turn to fall

    Transition

    Swallowed up in dreams
    In an empty space
    I'm being carried away
    Into the light

    It's all hazy around
    I'm filtering through the fog
    Heading into
    The heart of what lies beyond all time

    I'm being taken along
    A course I've been on before
    I see nests of souls
    Fireflies

    Passing slowly by
    And rising up higher
    Heading into
    The heart of what lies beyond all time

    ***

    I had a lonely life
    In my safety zone
    Somewhere on the edge of the world
    I was searching for myself
    Watching all the others' lives
    Doing nothing with my own
    All too soon the life was over
    And in my sunset days
    Without love
    With no friends
    I couldn't let you come and take my soul
    So after all
    The last thing that I saw
    Were the waves crashing violently on the shore

     

    ***

    The darkness washed inside me
    I crossed over to the other side
    As my eyes adjusted to the dark
    I could distinguish distant pallid light

    So I went in this direction
    Trying not to lose my way
    And when I achieved my goal
    I saw the brightness
    Clouds
    And all those nice memories
    All those nice memories
    But this special one
    I'd left
    Behind in the shade
    In my darkest fear
    And If I don't go back
    I'll never find myself

    Gravestone Hill

    When they met after years
    One day
    They went to the hill
    Where the old gravestone stood in the shade
    Lonely
    Admiring the city lights
    They started a new life
    Their love was reborn

    The old gravestone
    Forgotten by time
    Remained in the shade

    Winter came earlier
    Than last year when they moved on
    They returned
    The whole family
    Happy with memories and snow
    Children were sledding
    So joyful
    They looked at them
    Smiling
    Embraced with love

    The old gravestone
    Forgotten by time
    Remained in the shade
    Alone

    Wanderings

    I am walking
    Through the valley of the shadow of your name
    It's been another after-life-time
    Since you left me here this way
    How about a little game of chess
    How about we roll the dice
    What can I do
    Where should I go now
    I want to look into your eyes

    Drifting In the state of limbo
    Condemned to idleness
    Listen to the sound of distant memories
    Passing through the white hourglass

    Just wandering around

    Looking for the way to my home
    I've lived someone else's life
    Waiting for the perfect moment
    I've lost all track of time

    What can I do
    Where should I go now
    I want to look into your eyes
    Listen to the sound of distant memories
    Passing through the white hourglass

    In the middle of light and darkness
    In the middle of bright and shade
    I was trying to avoid your kiss
    I was trying to escape

    Now I'm the soul
    Banished to everlasting wanderings

    The New Beginning

    I thought you wouldn't come
    I have been waiting for you
    In the back of beyond

    Out on a Limb

    I don't know what I become
    Floating softly
    Flying up
    Like there's no more gravity
    Body and mind
    Different things

    I don't know what I become
    But I feel so good this time
    From far-off I hear your cry
    Floating softly
    Split in two
    I'm flying high

    Summerland

    Black procession in the rain
    Lovely brand new hearse
    Everyone cries
    Everyone cares
    Or maybe just pretends

    Oh, it's your big moment, by the way

    Cold at heart
    Indifference
    Thought they were your best friends
    Tears & flowers
    From the one
    You never would expect

    Oh, it's your big moment, by the way
    Would you like to tell them something?

    Do you remember what you said
    When I looked into your eyes
    For the first time
    I know you're not quite ready yet
    But there's nothing to be afraid of
    In your Summerland.

    On the wall
    In the waiting room
    Still life in a frame
    At the end of the corridor
    Someone screams your name

    Oh, it's your big moment by the way
    Would you like to tell him something?

    Do you remember what you said
    When I looked into your eyes
    For the first time
    I know you're not quite ready yet
    But there's nothing to be afraid of
    In your Summerland

    Lunatic Soul

    I can't describe what's going on with me
    A different nature moving rapidly
    Being halfway here
    And halfway somewhere else

    My whole life starts to flash in front of me
    I'm overwhelmed in joy, quiet and peace
    All words I know are three-dimensional
    I feel all troubles are gone
    I feel all troubles are gone

    Timelessness,
    Ineffability
    I glimpse the spirits of my relatives
    I see the others
    The being of light
    Shifting through a tunnel, long and dark

    I regret all those things that I had left undone
    And I wish I could fix everything that was wrong
    I wish I could tell you how sorry I am
    This is not the end
    It's the start of something that I'm really scared of
    That I'm scared to life
    I'm scared to life
    I'm scared to life
    I'm scared to life

    Where the Darkness is Deepest

    Adrift

    I know we're passing by
    See the shadows of our own
    Apart from where we are
    We still believe
    And raise our hopes
    We're locked up alone
    Going nowhere
    Waiting for the dawn
    And just like shooting stars
    We sleep in flames
    Until we burn up
    Until we burn up

    How many lives we live
    Poised between all heaven and earth
    How many times we die
    Trying for rebirth with a different mask
    No matter where we go
    Souls adrift never say goodbye

    The Final Truth

    So easy to forget
    Remove from consciousness
    All instances
    That used to be significant
    I never thought those things
    Would have such meaning
    Until he asked me to
    Give them back

    What will survive of me
    A cardboard box with thoughts inside
    What will survive of me
    My little escapes from real life
    What will survive
    And what will I take
    To the land of endless ones

    If I sever the past
    It will be so dark here…

    We want to be loved
    Loved for what we are
    We want to be saved
    But our final truth depends on time

    So what will survive of me
    A cardboard box with thoughts inside
    What will survive of me
    My little escapes from real life
    What will survive
    And what will I take
    To the land of endless ones

    If I sever the past
    It will be so dark here…

    When I met The Ferryman
    He smiled to me
    Could swear I saw this smile before
    "You have to choose" – he said
    "And then you may return
    You'll get another chance to revive
    If you decide to keep
    Your memories from the past
    By all else, you must be forgotten
    If you let me take your mind
    If you let me take your soul
    In their hearts you'll stay forever
    Your choice

    The time is now
    At the crossroads of your afterlife
    The part of you must be lost
    Make up your mind
    Choose the side
    Pick the card
    Throw the coin from your mouth
    Cause the time is now
    I'm calling you again
    Let's see what color your rising sun will have this time"

    Waiting for the Dawn
