Track Name: Meanwhile in the Forest
Hypnotized at moonlight,
levitating through the woods
Heavy fog all over, repeated,
knocking in my head

Forest mystic place,
embrace this sinful shape

I should’ve never drank that last remaining drop of wine
That night!
I should’ve never slept between her legs again
Empty feel!

A blackout then, the smell of humid soil
I realize I'm naked and lost in the woods

You're here for me, please sing to me

I'm paralyzed and floating straight above the ground
Looking up!
Suddenly a burning heat runs through my spine
It builds inside!

I'm forced to open up my mouth
and throw a beam of radiant light
directing it to the moon

Forest mystic place,
embrace this sinful shape

You're here for me, please sing to me

It fills my bones,
The forest enters my soul,
it makes me embrace my faults

So slow, it's so slow
Track Name: Stolen Bullets
Ever since I heard you talking to the crowd
I knew pretty lies were being nurtured
Then I met you waiting in that public line
I saw fire smoothly flowing through your veins,
pumped again by your rotten soul’s heart
Brilliant ways of sneaking past their minds,
but not mine, I will find
such a pretty way to swiftly stop you

Waiting for the nightmares
Waiting for the night to fall

I stole the bullets from your gun
I stole the bullets, lock and load

Everyday I see you smiling at the crowd
I see pretty faces being nurtured
You will feel the venom freely flowing through your veins,
pumped again by your rotten soul’s heart
Brilliant way of sneaking past your mind,
I will find the blazing fire
such a pretty way to swiftly catch up

I stole the bullets from your gun
I stole the bullets, lock and load

Brace myself

I stole the bullets from your gun
I stole the bullets your loaded gun

I stole the bullets from your gun
I stole the bullets for my twisted soul
Track Name: Wall (The March of the Inept)
If I stay more time here,
I would be giving up on me
Surrounded just by sheep,
an aberration to creativity

A huge wall arises obstructing direction to move ahead
The greatest intention to break through
and make my own rules!

A nation that does not believe
in its own art, in its own faculties
Excuses everywhere
and massive media ignoring all of us

A huge wall arises obstructing direction,
contention
The greatest intention to break through
and make my own rules!

A huge wall arises obstructing direction,
dissension
The greatest intention to break through
and make my own rules!

A hindering wall arises in front of me
I must break through
Track Name: Hello Fool
Enters home, says hello, she knows he’s alone
shares a kiss, holy gift, whispers “listen to me:
do your job, take this gun, the address is written down here”

He’s amused, so confused, breathing through that look,
does the math, gets it right, he could lose her heart...
Drives away, finds the place and we know he does not hesitate

She fools him again

I’m inside, lights are out, I feel a cozy warmth,
there’s no time, for desire, for another lie
Underneath spotless sheets goddess’ dreams get pierced by my bullet’s fire

As he looks, he starts to lose and despise the mood,
smells of blood and metal join, like a perfect drug
He gets a rush, feels the cold and the sweat that’s rotting through his soul

I think I can keep away the pain
The truth is that only you reign

You fool me again
I’ve been trying to restrain

Shattered thoughts, nature’s lost, she devours his moans,
in that mist, he nestles
Does his job, takes that gun and we know he will not hesitate
Track Name: #thegame
I can see the prey approaching,
it’s a place she’s never seen before
Out of options… she will not control a thing at all

I know my game,
it will only leave some scratches
I must take her,
it will only leave a broken life

Tales so sick inside my head
failing ‘cause she’s stalling

Find her waiting for your passion’s ways, always ready to disrupt this game
Falling from my soul, falling as she stalls
Find her waiting for the smoke to fade, always ready for this game
Falling from my soul

I’m escaping as I travel
to a place I’d never seen before
Out of options… I cannot control my very own thoughts

I know I’m failing,
but I’m trying to maneuver
I must take her,
but I can barely stay afloat

Tales so sick inside my head
failing ‘cause she’s stalling

Find her waiting for your passion’s ways, always ready to disrupt this game
Falling from my soul, falling as she stalls
Find her waiting for the smoke to fade, always ready for this game
Falling from my soul

Feel the mist now, come on, feel the mist now
Feel uncommon, press on, feed the dark fog
Feel the mist now, come on, fear this normal love

Find her waiting for your passion’s ways, always ready to disrupt this game
Falling from my soul, falling as she stalls
Find her waiting for the smoke to fade, always ready to destroy your game
Falling from my soul, playing from below
Track Name: Strikeout
Today nothing makes sense, not for me
Today I asked myself, why am I here?
No arguments to set or to plead
Just like an eidolon, turquoise mist

What's my purpose in life and in this world?
Depressing state of mind,
of body and soul

As the colors of my life keep losing strength,
I completely lose my sanity and faith
hoping lies persuade me all again

Strike out the light!
I'm gradually fading
unable to fake it lately

With nothing left inside, view in blank
With nothing left to share, what's the point of going on?

So what's the use of well-begotten talents?
What's the contribution to this silence?
As time goes by everything goes to hell

Strike out the light!
I'm gradually fading
unable to fake it lately

Tired, sad and lonely

Strike out the light!
I'm gradually fading
unable to fake it lately

Today nothing makes sense, not for me
Today I asked myself, why am I here?
Is there's a truthful light where we go?
We've built a massive lie,
hell, you know
Track Name: Icicle
I met a girl who could freeze your heart for years,
yet she was also the best shipmate at a stormy sea
I was unprepared to fly as high as planes above us,
and when winter came up I was already an unknown

She said:
"These wounds you made, I’m hurt, I'll put an end to this,
this time I'll freeze your heart in order to remove you"

At that moment she turned into solid gleaming ice,
since then I've been walking through lonely glacier fields

Breathing hardly,
freezing anguish
Wander silence,
free my will!

"A foolish boy intrudes into my life as morning winter melts between my hands,
unpleasant voice echoes beneath my prideful frigid life"

"I have not the time for this, I no longer recognize you either,
just stop imposing your love"
"It wasn't me who ruined things, it wasn't me who was immature,
all you feel is something meaningless"

Breathing hardly,
freezing anguish
Wander silence,
free my will!

Breathing hardly,
freezing sorrow
Wander silence,
free me of this pain
Track Name: Kerosene
Kerosene essence I’ve got since craving days
just about to explode with all that’s in its way,
Paraffin figments, I've got the nerves,
non success events, finally choked
Unpromising scenario,
it's driving me insane

The older you become, the harder it seems to dream
I'm barely holding on!
I´ve been trying to overcome, I guess that I'm not good enough
I´m barely holding on!

Been persisting for too long,
frustrated nature,
boiling soul
You live, you die, you miss the point
and this goes on and on and on…

Mistakenly I think I'll leave my footprint here,
but truly no one gives a fuck of what I've got to say,
Hephaestus strength I'd wish to dominate,
to forge a dense metal, a life proof vest
Breathlessly I feel I ain’t got more time to live

The older you become, the more skeptic you result
I'm barely holding on!
I've been too long in the dark, my inner fire is almost lost
I'm barely holding on!

Been persisting for too long,
frustrated nature,
boiling soul
You live, you die, you miss the point
and this goes on and on and on…
I've managed to survive,
but seems I'm destined to fall through
The time is right,
inflame myself in blueish, funky kerosene
Track Name: The Blast
The blast that makes the big things go on,
a blast to tear a hole through my thoughts

Breaks inside,
comes, takes all
Follows itself into its own course

Inside out ...
Explodes just to implode again,
cracks the shell way over my head!

The blast that shreds the things I know,
a blast to tear a hole through my thoughts

Bursts inside,
comes, takes all
Follows itself into its own course

Wake up floating, this is more than I can stand
All my memories and even time and space they fade away
It’s a void inside of me
and it fills me up with something I can't contain

Inside out...
My head is a bombsite
cracks the shell way over my head!
Turn it off…
This fuse burns too bright now
cracks the shell of my head!

So strong I get sucked by a wormhole
Redeem my dreams and let me go now

Inside out ...
Explodes just to implode again,
cracks the shell way over my head!
Turn it off…
This fuse burns too bright now
cracks the shell of my head!
Track Name: Monclova
Do you remember where we met?
Northern place
A blazing sun delights my sense, baby...

A balmy rhythm through my veins as I stare
Unforgettable love thirst

Childhood dreams per everywhere
Glorious place
Reminds a pleasant movie scene...

And I'm feelin' fine and inspired
and I'm feelin' fine!

Monclova!
I wrote these words in a letter,
so that just maybe you read them

As I dance with you…
As you spot my eyes you can see my soul,
and as you see my soul you can feel my flow
What if I take you in my arms?
What if I say I'm in love with you?

Let me whisper in your ear
Marvelous girl
This is driving me insane

And it's sweet to understand
That’s Monclova
The place of our olden days

And I'm feelin' fine and inspired
and I'm feelin' fine!

Monclova!
I wrote these words in a letter,
so that just maybe you read them
Track Name: Poison 23:59
Pitiful when I’m lost
virtues dissolve,
I find your memory completely torn and dying
from the poison
Torpor seems like æther,
freely grows then eats through me
merely faking normal feelings, silent
as it poisons me

Just an hour…
Too much
In an hour I may leave
and I’ll find comfort
Just a minute…
Pull through
In a minute I may inhale
and I’ll find comfort

With the skyline stars outside,
how foolish have I been
to call you soulmate while I’m being shattered
by your poison?
So full of you I’ve always been,
pure gleaming light once dwelled within
Now you’re blackened cancer slowly spreading, burning
like a poison

Just one minute left,
then I will stop and I will leave
and I’ll find comfort
Just a minute…
Pull through
In a minute I will exhale,
and I’ll find comfort

I’ve poisoned myself enough
