    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

    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

    Walking on a Flashlight Beam…
    Walking on a Flashlight Beam.
