    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
