Vortex

Perception, what have I become
Ever seemed so different but accused, this is my perception
Conception, the vortex drags adapting minds
Always seemed so different and refused, this is my conception

This is my conception of all that’s bothering me

Seeing clear, reflecting about what’s inside
They are here, the ones who won’t understand
That their lives are more than this, pitiful
Get out of this corset of counterfeit

Release me from the shades of gray
Something is haunting me, sets free all inner weakness
Turns my inner self into a stranger
Release me from the shades of gray
Something is haunting me

Seeing clear, reflecting about what’s inside
They are here, the ones who won’t understand
That their lives are more than this, pitiful
Get out of this corset of counterfeit

Release me from the shades of gray
Something is haunting me

Stream Of Deceit

We are addicted to fake reality
Manipulation of the cleansed minds
A Certain picture evolves to conviction
No look beyond, no look beyond

A second world built up on lies
A place where every trust dies
The separating border will blur more and more

We are lost forevermore

We seek together
It’s getting sick forever
We’ve had enough to be duped by illusions

Heard a story, was it real and true?
Was it imagination, can I trust you?
Every thought is suspicious to be fake

A second world built up on lies
A place where every trust dies
The separating border will blur more and more

We are lost forevermore
In this endless stream of deceit

Stories Of Modern Ache

Long term exhaustion and diminished interest
Neglecting one’s own needs and inner emptiness
Denial of emerging problems, cynicism rules
Withdrawal will rise
Depersonalization, cynicism rules
Withdrawal will rise

Depression
Burnout
You need to be resistant
Depression
Burnout
This can`t be everlasting

Revision of values
Nothing else in mind
You’re acting completely different
The burnout makes you blind
You can’t see the cause of the distress
It’s blinding your perception
You can’t see the cause of the distress
Cause cynicism rules

Depression
Burnout
You need to be resistant
Depression
Burnout
This can`t be everlasting

Behind These Broken Feelings

You won’t get this to critizise
Until you start to realize
That your fake behavior is a mess
You’re totally helpless

You change your face everyday
Grounded in deepest fears
Someday you’ll only fade away
So don’t hide behind

This building made of fears
It`s longing for you
You need to escape to feel the life

Becoming a wall of stone
For others totally unknown
The inner fury against yourself is turned outside

No more of this anxiety
Looking for something to feel free
The inner fury against yourself is turned outside

This building made of fears
It`s longing for you
You need to escape to feel the life

Behind these broken feelings there is only an empty shell

Drowning in sorrows
Drowning in tears
We’ll leave you alone to fight the fears

Limited Horizons

Limited horizons, close-minded
There’s more than one point of view
To look on something, to handle something
Why accept other opinions
When your own is the only truth
Your word stands for itself
Like a statue poured in concrete

Do you believe yourself
Do you know that you’re wrong
Stand still, don’t move
One step forward means danger

Unreflecting words in search for acceptance
But nothing will remind your point of view
Neverending lies, limited horizons
There’s always one standing next to you

Do you believe yourself
Do you know that you’re wrong
Stand still, don’t move
One step forward means danger
Do you believe yourself
Do you know that you’re wrong
Everything and everyone else means stranger
Take a look around

Confined To Ignorance

Regarding the world as a snowglobe
Ignoring what’s behind and around
Trapped inside a cage
Regarding your life as a unique path
Ignoring the surrounding population
Locked inside your imagination

We are nothing more than what we can see
We are nothing more than what we can feel

Despising when someone’s different
Not accepting the will to change
Being your own idol

Despising other ways of live
Not accepting comparisons
Being your own god

We are nothing more than what we can see
We are nothing more than what we can feel

Like the people in platos cave
Stare blindly at bare reflections
Never grasping it’s true nature
Forever unable to escape this confinement
Cleanse yourself of all ignorance
Digest this venomlike mindlessness
Break out of this tame entity
Perceived distinctions are but illusions

Created by our misguided minds

Anger Inside

Never forget what they’ve done to you when you were helpless
Never regret all the things you could have said

Revenge is all that is left in your life
The day will come when you can strike back
Revenge is all that is left in your life
Out of nowhere out of sight
You will strike back – they will take back
You will strike back to take revenge

Being beaten rises something they can’t await
All the laughter brought you to this giant hate
One day the time is right for you to find revenge for your life

Ripped from the chest and leaving a big hole
No longer there would be pride
Ripped from the chest, it’s the truth they stole
Out of nowhere out of sight
You should get back what they reject
you should strike back to take revenge

Being beaten rises something they can’t await
All the laughter brought you to this giant hate
One day the time is right for you to find revenge for your life

Loss

Always struggling, expecting the worst that could happen
Fighting with words to describe my thoughts
Keep it close, don’t let anyone come too near
Struggle with the anguish to let everything fall apart

Loss of all reliance
Loss of all I cared about
Loss of all reliance

Blind trust has disappeared at last

Every new day I’m more withdrawn

Odd reasons collide with fear of treason
Always betrayed, never esteemed
Behind these mask of lies there is nothing
Behind these face of lies there is nothing

Loss of all reliance
Loss of all I cared about
Loss of all reliance

We’re Drowning In Oceans

What is the question about this life on earth
When we don’t care and get what we deserve
Blowing up ashes and fueling our water
Envenom animals and grazing our fields

Why there is no understanding that one night this world is ending
We can’t fight this destructiveness but one night this world is ending

The ones who could stop it are simply looking away
The ones who suffer are reaching their last day
Blowing up ashes and fueling all the water
Envenom animals and grazing everything

Why there is no understanding that one night this world is ending
We can’t fight this destructiveness but one night this world is ending

There is only some time left to make it all reversible
We don’t have to drown in our own fault
There is only some time left to make the world invincible
We don’t have to drown in our own fault

Why there is no understanding, that one night this world is ending
We can’t fight this destructiveness, but one night this world is ending

As Centuries Collide

When there is nothing left and it’s pointless to hope for a change
Mankind is filled with bitterness

Withered leaves on burned grounds
The smell of ashes surrounds us
There is no way out, simply deny our mistakes
Reveal the state of this century

Twisted minds and missing conscience
Leading to the final disguise

As centuries collide
There’ll be no place to hide
As centuries collide

No light between the clouds
Smiles and faith are not allowed
Mankind is filled with regret

This is a dead end
A one way trip without solutions
If there’s a way out I suppose we’ll never know
The flood of soulless beings will carry us along

As centuries collide
There’ll be no place to hide
As centuries collide

The suffering is gone, there are better times to come
We try to arrange ourselves with today’s situation
Events that branded our thinking are over
On the way to new horizons
But still the elegy remains
