Track Name: Confusing World
No more falling from black skies
I feel our souls are burning way to bright
Smooth is everything we touch
So bloody in the end when we are done

Screams and shouts won't be heard
My sun is black, yours just don't exist
Imaginations lost in a diary
Beware of memories that don't last

I don't know what's going on, too much wasting energy
I just want to kill the day, such a damn confusing world

Love is sweet, bitter, deadly
Cold, empty eyes are starring at redemption
Does Phoenix ever inspire you?
Or is it god that gives you some pretence?

I don't know what's going on, too much wasting energy
I just want to kill the day, such a damn confusing world

No more falling from black skies
I feel our souls are burning way to bright
Smooth is everything we touch
So bloody in the end when we are done

I don't know what's going on, too much wasting energy
I just want to kill the day, such a damn confusing world
Track Name: Doors To Reality
Take your wings and fly away
Can you escape from this cruel pain?
So bitter sweet is the beginning
But much sweeter is the inspiration

Ignore deception all around you
Always pet the monkey on your back
We love to sing with angels above
But it's also fun to dance with the devil himself

Open the doors to reality
See there ain't no reason to cry
There's only one heaven above
But many hells are always inside our soul

Try to describe in a different a way
Words are meaningless unless you feel
Tragic and much more is the condition
When everything's just black and white

Truth's always hidden in the beginning
Shiny diamonds in our eyes, just fake.
Love is in the air. That's great.
Now tell me how to take a breath
Track Name: No Regrets
I take a walk in a garden of filth
Oh, can't you see that our heavens burn?
We used to stand so tall in our misery
The enemy laughed, hatred actually never left

Answers just won't come to you
and they don't fall from the sky
The question is, are you ready to pay the price
and ignore all the lies?

Leaders of the blind showed the light no one can see
Our god was there but still in us we trust
Reborn and blessed with childish fear
Or ignorant enough to waste a whole life time

Answers just won't come to you
and they don't fall from the sky
The question is, are you ready to pay the price
and ignore all the lies?
Burn with me just one more time, let's steal the past
Whatever you want is what I need, no regrets
Another way to say goodbye is to slit our throats
Whatever you want is what I need, no regrets

To summon you is to sleep in a bed of lies
Only a snake's kiss can let me fall in love again
Existence now has just become a fact
Your thoughts, my prayers. Can't wait any more
Track Name: Embrace The Light
Ice cold water running through my veins.
Is there nothing you can do to ease the pain?
Whatever I might see or hear, I still don't understand or feel at all.

I guess naturally we keep our sanity, so we can pretend and hide our darker sites.
Good morning glorious world, what can I fake today to stand your cruelty?

Let the light embrace all the darkness around you
Don't let there be a hole inside your heart
Let the light embrace all the darkness around you
Don't trust anyone who ever keeps you down

I want to bleed and lose my sins.
However, there's no sins. I'm just suffering for myself.
My heroic acts are followed now by foolish failure. I am the brick in the wall that just won't fit.

Sometimes I wonder if there are other gods and powers that can tear our lives like that.
In the end, aren't we just a leaf in the wind? So quiet now, let's fly, pretend, protect.
Track Name: Fight!
Looking up and all I see is hell
No way that could lead me further down
But I met an angel and took it's wings
Obsession lead me to a place where I could save myself

Go on your knees and start to believe in yourself
Whenever you close a door, start over again and fight!
Empty your soul and start filling it with something
Just go straight ahead, don't look back and start to fight!

Burned to the ground, no hope for resurrection
I reached for the stars, they just pierced my eyes
I killed myself in a bubble you created
And finally the hand of reason drowned me in wisdom

Chorus

Deepest pits of hell were my playground and home
For too long I've had too many wrong believes
But then an ice cold fever overwhelmed me
A demon heart I stole as well and it started to beat

Chorus
Track Name: Pieces Of Sanity
Black roses inside my heart, can you tell me where truth hides?
An angel cries and I die, this world almost broke my will.
See the light before it's gone, adapt to darkness while you can.
Tomorrow comes, no matter what. And so does death my friend

Don't look back to insanity, don't say goodbye to soul and mind
Try again, it's not in vain. At least pretend it'll be alright
Step forward to sanity, heaven won't wait just for you

Each time I try to pray another seed is planted in my heart.
And I walk the line in a frame of good although the devil stares
Please me girl, I wanna try but nothing works to satisfy
Illusions, just made up in a way we can all live and hope

Chorus

Black roses inside my heart, can you tell me where truth hides?
An angel cries and I die, this world almost broke my will.
See the light before it's gone, adapt to darkness while you can.
Tomorrow comes, no matter what. And so does death my friend

Everything fails, don't ask why you must stand
When all is lost you needn't fear to lose again
Track Name: Left Alone (Or: I Hate God)
Yesterday was just like the day before
Nothing new, same old stuff, same old shit
The way people look at me just bothers me
Sarring at the ceiling and I hate god

I turn my back on you and give you one last hug
Tomorrow I'll come back and stab you twice
Can't you see, today's lesson was just enough for me
But still I want more, just wanna see all your pain, so ...
... Just burn in hell! I will visit you there soon!
And screw your god! I will tear him down as well!

I used to know a pretty girl
Our love was sweet before she left
I used to know my best friends
Always around, yet still alone

Chorus

Today was just like yesterday
Nothing new, same old stuff, same old shit
I always hated the way people looked at me
Feeling mad about the way people treat me

Chorus
Track Name: Frown
Just wait a little longer, 'till the pain is all gone
Illusion eyes stare at me, take me so far away
Just wait a little longer, 'till you can fake a frown
Illusion eyes stare at me, take me so far away

Burning down all memories like smoking cigarettes
Such cruelty too keep track of our hope
I take those bottles all too serious, just for fun
Swallowing down whatever I could never achieve

Standing with my face to the wall, but not alone
My force within, my will outside and no denial
A broken fist is still better than a broken soul
Mind control. Not with me, not any more.

Just wait a little longer, 'till the pain is all gone
Illusion eyes stare at me, take me so far away
Just wait a little longer, 'till you can fake a frown
Illusion eyes stare at me, take me so far away

Wish I could find the things to appreciate
No need for reason, all I must save is time
No useless help, everything I use I will abuse
My wounds will heal whenever I'll be taken down

Just wait a little longer, 'till the pain is all gone
Illusion eyes stare at me, take me so far away
Just wait a little longer, 'till you can fake a frown
Illusion eyes stare at me, take me so far away
Track Name: Breath To Midnight
I'm looking out the window, but not like other people do
I wonder if the world is so afraid, or is it just me?

Superior taste of loneliness, a thought I started to like
Just when will be the day when I'll grow up and sigh

Escaping from reality every Friday night
The day after just reflects the decadence of my faith
Killing myself on Sunday afternoons
But actually dying in a thought on Monday mornings
So long, farewell, goodbye, one last breath to midnight

Such a beautiful day. Thunder, lightning and a sunset
My name is chimera, will you come to haunt me down?

Abbreviate my mind, enhance the devil in your soul
I wonder if the world is so afraid, or is it just me?

Escaping from reality every Friday night
The day after just reflects the decadence of my faith
Killing myself on Sunday afternoons
But actually dying in a thought on Monday mornings
So long, farewell, goodbye, one last breath to midnight
Track Name: Tortured Mind
Woke up shocked tonight, a feeling of delirium
That ugly spider crawled on my bed room wall again
Was it just a dream or fantasy or maybe real?

Another beast, another feast
of mental cruelty and it goes on and on
Kill it father! Kill what's wrong with me
My proud tortured mind, no easy way out!

No angel took my hand, no soft kiss calmed me down
Just holy water, bringing back my sanity
Just a cold touch of horror welcomed me tonight

Chorus

And so I pay the price of being a dreamer
The sort of people living free and poor.
My proud tortured mind, no easy way out!
