Oscillate 04:25
I see a glimmer, nothing but blurry edges. I see a way out, but I cannot take it. And there I am, head bowed, praying on my knees at the white ceramic altar, sacred, pledged to keep within the soul at least, the headache will tell if I did. First and last of my kind/ proud and pointless. The confession of a madman/ sincere and unheard. A dusty puppet handled by the ghosts. We're all tightrope walkers above our personal ravine will i fall? am I falling yet? so thanks for this defective wings I have. will I fall? Am i falling yet? so thanks for this defective wings I have. We all have an own pain therapy, no exceptions. You're not different enough to judge. You're none to judge. I'll find fake and temporary relief, just to sink again. And like the tide, I'll swing and balance, for the same reason of being. As the tide.
Time to wake the wake the fuck up Days spent in darkness If only we could paint over the pas a new future Leave the questions behind Close your eyes and witness the dark part of your being Where all the shadows are hiding Open your arms to eternal damnation Destroy Searching for something that doesn't exist Here we all feel alive Here we all see wonders surround us We are slaves to ourselves All these lights got us blind Release the demon hiding beneath your skin And when all hope is gone And every door seems locked You have to force your way through It has begun Dry the tears from your eyes We can only see as far as we think The horizon falls The sky and the sea becomes one No more limits for you Now you can fly Perfection neutralized
Mechanical 04:08
Mesmerize me with your chant Kill me with your voice I'll fall as everyone I'll be the first to rise in torment Fingers glide on me so real they seem to sink into this skin of mine and vanish within blessed be the poison that runs through my veins I am back from depths I can hear the scream of this world Why don't you make your own move? Staring at this wall Carrying the screams of them all Standing in balance Out and away Reset your eyes Erase your mind You are the plague that infests your own flesh Realize it will never be the same again Reset you eyes Erase your mind Running away from a place where everyone is exiled Trapped in their week mind, hampered by stereotypes We are our own obstacle The hidden daylight above the laden clouds glare of gray, chew and spat in a far and cold desert The dying rain carves on my face thousand names of thousand victims Make your own move Become a machine
