The Ghost I am Vers 1 Down the road Where no one goes I know you’ll wait for me But I know, I won’t come your eyes are soaked in blood I cannot turn away REF What am I to fight for When I have nothing to gain What am I dying for I was never alive I am the ghost That no one knows You became the darkness That drowns my soul VERS 2 I am the only judge The sentence is my death My dreams are empty All I see is your shattered face The laughter died forever Silence will prevail BRDG And I fall with you Every night we die And I wonder what you saw When I left you behind to fall There are voices inside my head That cannot be silenced
Predicament 03:09
Predicament VERS 1 Screaming out my senses – is this me dying? All I’m having disappears - what fore am I fighting? Still you decide about the life that I live – I am a fool A plaything, waiting for you punching again – I’m not for free Nothing can excuse – I know your game Uprising has begun now REFRAIN Close your eyes for one moment, we can still believe One deep breath, get your focus – with the gun at your head You don’t own me, you don’t fool me, I am burying your bound This war is mine When you’re bringing me pain VERS 2 Absence of clarity is clouding your eyes. you can’t deny That the truth you are fighting, and I am trying to forgive – oh god, these lies I will not listen, you … BRIDGE The war – is on now And she – decides The whore- has spoken And I’m - alive
Mirror 05:23
MIRROR VERS 1 You fell for your own darkness Silence was all you had left The path you followed is lost And all the flowers wilted long ago The wind will never sing again To me your name is lost REF I am death and life The black mask will fall to shards and scars And all that’s left of you Is the face in the mirror VERS 2 You broke all your promises But you could not leave me behind As long as I ran I was The shadow waiting Never to let go The mirror has gone so stale You have become my ghost
My Friend 03:49
My Friend VERS 1 Once again, hello my dear friend Have you come to see me bleeding, again Your thirst for blood seems unquenchable Are the sources still not deep enough for you Are the sources still not deep enough for you? Thought you could help me out of here But all you do is using me REF This blood is running just for you Still you’re not satisfied Selfishly you take more and more of me But still you are my most true friend In the darkness, where my home is You show no mercy for me I will not fight for myself you know what is good for me VERS 2 Even though the others say you’re not good for me I will stay here with you You’ve never betrayed me You know who I really am And every time you’re there, I feel free So incredibly free BRDG I thought I’d love to die beside you I’ve lied so many times for you But losing my fear of you I’ve gone too far…so much to far Blood on my hand – can’t remember why With you my friend – I can’t see the sky Rest in peace – my innocence A smile on my face – but I cannot pretend
Lost Battle 04:54
LOST BATTLE VERS 1 And this path will never end As long as your voice lingers inside my head This is the perfect storm As I crash against your ice And drown in your soul – so cold VERS 2 And the bottle will drown your sorrow And the knife will ease my pain Dreams that mock me night by night My shivering hand holds your picture Your scent still lingers in my room And my world breaks down As the walls fall upon me And your thorns pierce my throat REF Another battle is lost for me The bitter stun of defeat Throws me to my knees again Bitter cries that paralyse my brain BRDG And this time I can’t find a reason To pick up the remains and start again Death has lost its sting And I laugh into thy face As I bleed As I break As I fall As I close my eyes
Face Me Down 04:50
Face me down VERS 1 I am the cancer of my life Cut me out to heal my blood Toss my demons into the void Bring the sun to darken my face Let me leave this earth in peace Don’t hate me for what I’ve done REF Bless me as I am bleeding Heal me as I am leaving All behind that I have ever been in my life Far away from anything To believe in In my heart there sticks a knife VERS 2 The sickness inside me is marching The ache is controlling me lost before the first blood’s drawn The final frontier fell long ago My hand reaches out in vain My fingers are broken And you will hate me for what I’ve done BRDG Let me die, heal the cancer in me Burry me alive, hide my shame
What I’ve become VERS 1 You spend your days in light While I rot in shadows And you drift apart from me Have you forgotten that I love you, how did you Grow so ashamed of me Where have we lost it REF You’re reigning down on me Give me all your lies I’ll believe them Your voice inside my head Being myself became something scarring me You came into my life overthrowing me And turned my life into wasteland’s elegy You took so much of me This is what I’ve become VERS 2 The sun downs your days As I drown the night I’ll hunt you in my dreams The horror will gush through Your eyes, your red rimmed eyes They will watch me die The plague of your night BRDG Drown my thoughts deep in the bottle Fight for something long gone Keep me warm with pity in your eyes Press the fingers to my open veins Hear the Lies that I’m better Your face, my grace Turned into scorn and hate The night was young We came undone
Posession 05:40
Possession VERS 1 Do you think this is a game? Dices falling now in vain Me the puppet in your hands, wax to form, you playing god Does my own will not count anymore? Do you think this is a game and you can play with me? I don’t need you, why don’t you just get lost Oh I forgot you are nothing without my broken eyes I wonder what you’d do if I lose them REF Free- one day I will be free Swimming with the clouds Free from you One day I will close my eyes A world of shadows right behind my doors No limits anymore VERS 2 You called yourself my owner Didn’t pay any price My right, my gift to welcome you But all or nothing is how you deal your possession is what you see in me You came without an invitation; how did you just get in? Be sure, I never wanted you around But now you breathe through me, thinking you can take me As your new victim More selfishly you cannot play BRDG You say you do me a favour And I can’t stay alive without you You only see what you want to see But I am stronger than you think And I will survive But sometimes I cry Oh no please go away I ‘m not that special So please take another one No, please leave me be I’m not that special Just stop calling my name
Blinded 04:31
Blinded VERS 1 You feel alone you haven ‘t met yourself and you wish upon a star That everything goes by endless and bleak, are your nights Drunk you tell me I am scum But beg me to stay you cling on me, tell me why? Then you tell me I should leave Everything is through You are the one who’ll stay alone I DON’T CARE REF Tell me I’m lying! The wrong one was I But you’re the one who’s blind And you scarred me deep inside Tell me I’m lying! Do you care? Do you dare? VERS 2 You have gone astray everything went by You are the fool – I don’t care When you tell me what to be Telling me that you have me blinded I don’t care BRDG THE PATH FORETOLD I know it’ll be too late YOUR LIES SO COLD Finally I know myself THE DARKNESS I AM Facing the game of blame NO MORE TRYING At least I will know myself -In the end-
You are the light VERS 1 Tears you are fighting As the night is bleeding Your dreams are frightening it’s the fear you’re feeding The rope is tightening It’s your mind I’m reading You are so tired of fighting REF A violent winter in me I’m fighting a war I cannot win I’m fighting for nobody The enemy is within me No one will remember who I was And I will die alone VERS 2 You looked so tired You’ve been running for so long The violence in your heart Did tear him apart Cold faced you did let him fall In his blood he did crawl BRDG The doubt tore the love apart The grave was cold the night was dark The skin separated in the silver shine The blood was gushing; this death was mine You are the light – You are the voice You are the light – You are darkness You are the light – You are silence You are the light – You are violence
Time you waste VERS 1 I can’t feel you I can’t fear you Now that you have left for yourself All left to blame is my own face Shards are all that remain Wishing away all that I am REF Time you waste wilts the grace Lost in haze, drained ourselves Once I settled for your hatred We still are but all is lost now Every night I am waiting for you to come VERS 2 I have begged you I have cursed you Coming to a point where I don’t Care if you care Care if you’re there Wasting away myself for you nevermore BRDG The lies we told were never true The worst was to believe in you At least you got me through the day Unechoed screams that never fade A promise that I never made At least it kept me sane BREATHE IN – drown me in silence BREATHE OUT – drown me in silence BLAME ME – drown me in silence BREATHE ME – drown me in silence now Scars will bleed inside my head Scars will bleed inside my head SCARS WILL BLEED INSIDE MY HEAD
