Track Name: Until Grief Disappears
I am alone in this world of slander | live like a ghost and solvent in the fog | all that pain around me | it eats me up from the inside | the empty souls on the streets

I don't want to see | I don't want to hear | I don't want to taste | I just breathe in the hate | that is the decision between to live or to walk in isolation

my lungs are filled with soil and I sink into the sand | I fall into oblivion and let myself drift from the current | the saving waves can not reach me | I drift further and further away

this life makes me sick | there was never a hope for my existence

I don't want to see | I don't want to hear | I don't want to taste | I just breathe in the hate | that is the decision between to live or to walk in desolation
Track Name: The Veil
see the truth through your own eyes | and do not trust the shadows | I can get you on the right path | there is a place where no dark exists | only the light gives us our forgotten memories back | people standing with their backs to each other

they do not know anymore | they do not want to remember | they hide in their dreams | they have no redemption | no redemption

I find my memories in you again | keep them | I see the truth in your eyes and not the shadows

they are the last things I have left | keep them forever | they must burn in your thoughts | keep them forever | it will burn | keep them forever

they hide in their dreams | they have no redemption | and the veil will disappear
Track Name: Avoid The Light
I am the curse | I count the days | I‘m still awake | it never ends | when will I get this poison out off my vains | I feel like a stranger | I want to leave this body | my skin burns like fire and I want to drown in the water without pain

I will never wake up from this nightmare | I have stopped counting | the days go by | the years eem to me like seconds | the moon is my best friend | I avoid the light on any occasion | this is my inspiration

I am losing my perspective and I sneak through dark alleys | until I find a way out and can relieve myself from suffering | the night takes me into the abyss | the night takes us into the abyss

avoid the light | it will not give you salvation

I am the curse | I count the days | I‘m still awake | it never ends | when will I get this poison out off my vains
Track Name: To Have A Dream Is To Be Cursed
I just want to see the sun | but no matter how hard I try | I m not reaching my goal but I can't rest | 'cause this is missing to feel alive

this isn't the life I was supposed to live | these endless waves of hope crush my chest | with such powerfull strength | until everything is silent | until everything is silent around me | I just want to see the sun

It seems like everything I touch falls into pieces | I just want to see the sun | but no matter how hard I try | I just want to see the sun | it seems like everything I touch falls into pieces | I just want to see the sun | because I am too desperate | I just want to see the sun | no matter how hard I try | everything is gone

this isn't the life I was supposed to live | these endless waves of hope crush my chest with such powerfull strength | until everything is silent

Do you know how it feels | to follow a dream you will never catch? | to have a dream is to be cursed
Track Name: Drowning
this nightmare in me | tries to drag me down | ripped into parts | forever sunken in this ocean | it's like suffocation | losing myself in this moment | I built this wall around me | to keep myself up again | but it pulls me down

this island that is me is threatened to drown in this storm around | the waves pull me down | this wall will soon be a sunken rock in this rough kind of sea and the thunder in me

I struggle for air leaving a trace of life | seeking for help in a hopeless world

I can't hope to pick myself up | it seems like my last breath has left my lungs | I prayed for absolution | to learn how not to die | to swim | to survive

this island that is me is threatened to drown in this storm around | the waves pull me down | this wall will soon be a sunken rock in this rough kind of sea and the thunder in me
Track Name: Shards
I see this world crushing on me | it‘s like burning in hell and heaven is so far away | I breathe clean air to get the dirt out of my lungs

a faint whisper is blowing through my mind and I close my eyes and reach for the emptiness

I walk through the dark valley up to the infinite flows | from there I let myself carry on this ship, until the end of my hopes and dreams

close my eyes | the ghosts in my dreams are only shadows and I will never wake up | will never wake up | I will not loose anything | I‘ll never be able to assign correctly | so I just have to dream

I see | I breathe | I crawl through the shards of my own dreams
Track Name: The Abyss
I feel it hard in my bones | I can't stand it anymore | I can feel it in my lungs and vains | I can see the shame about myself in your eyes | the fear comes over me and my blood is pumping | I dissapear into nothing

father I broke with myself, the belief in me is gone | forgive me my mistakes | mother I am so hopeless | can you give me my heartbeat back?

I burn down all the bridges I have built | I tear down all the walls I have bricked | I flood every angle of my belief

I loose my soul with every step | the sky turns to black | clouds disappear |
my fear returns | my memories are gone

we will never see the sun | my memories are gone | we will never see the sun | all light will perish | I burn down all the bridges that I have built | I tear down all the walls that I have bricked

father I broke with myself | mother I am so hopeless | forgive me my mistakes | can you give me my heartbeat back?
Track Name: Lay My Memories To Rest
the times I remember will never come back | I can't stop remembering | I can't forget the tears i've cried

It comes back anytime | I remember all that has changed and all that went so fucking wrong

you turned your back on me and I went down | I remained silent in myself |
you turned your back on me and I went down | I remained broken in myself

Oh please let there be someone who carries me home

I have to get over everything that meant something | and get over all these remaining memories

I have to lay my memories | I have to lay my memories to rest | I found so many people who can

take me back | take me back home | I set sail for a new future without you | this is my perfect vision of silence
Track Name: The Longest Days
who will share this way with me? | who will share my choice? | I will be the light in the dark | I will take you away from the bleakness

would anyone keep listen to your voice if they knew you don't tell the truth | would anyone keep look into your eyes if they knew you show them darkness |
no one will listen to your voice if they know you don‘t tell the truth | no one will look into your eyes if they know you don‘t tell the truth

the longest days have to change before we begin to cross our swords and fight against these ways | digging graves for those liars and their stories

we know it's worth keep fighting for | we can not accept defeat | it's hard to say our hearts will fall and our souls will be swallowed

there is no hope | there is a reason
