Track Name: Illusion-O
Cats inside walls
So hard to see
Cats inside walls
So hard to see
Their eyes are made of what they have seen
I can’t see what’s right in front of me
Right in front of me

Transmuted souls
So hard to see
Hearts beating slow
So hard to hear
Still haven’t found a drug that works for me
I can’t see what’s right in front of me
Right in front of me
Right in front of me

Illusion-O
How did life become so cold?
Illusion-O
How did I become so bored?

Lost at sea
Track Name: Glorify-me
Silence to mourn
A star was not born
Won’t you make way
For glory and fate?
I’m sorry I’m old
And so tired of hope
I can’t cease the day
No time for today

By design
Every second is a waste of time
And high hopes
You think I’m so
Delusional
One day you’ll know you have always been wrong
Is it too late to be myself?
Dead albatross hits the ground
Another empty shell

Glorify-me
In your presence
By the blood red sea
Resignedly waiting
It’s my throne what I claim
Renounce it for me
Raised above shallow graves
Resign and retreat

Delphi dead wrong
A covenant you broke
My summer’s play
My calling is belated
Should Saturn return
And devour his son?
The burden of grace
For public display

By design
Every second is a waste of time
And high hopes
You think I’m so
Delusional
Always relying on the kindness of ghosts
Is it too late to be myself?
I want a better world
But not for every one

Chorus

Let me be what I will be
Unbury me, enlighten me
Respect me for what I am about to become
Three wasted wishes
Co-star bereavement
Rejected gold
Forever unknown
Track Name: Fay Wray
Crazed starlet, learn your part
Through my veins straight to your heart
The world is such an abyss now
But I won’t let you fall apart

She screams and shouts again
Stolen soul, brain wave disaster
Just can’t shy away
From such a wrong way to heaven

I have to save Fay Wray now

In this asylum, all is well
'Cause you’re the one that I can help
They won’t be given access to your padded cell
You’ll be famous to me and nobody else

Beauty out of frame
Stolen soul, brain wave disaster
Just can’t shy away
From such a wrong way to heaven

I have to save Fay Wray now
Track Name: Darkness Wins
Thousands of windows close
And darkness wins

I won’t be a witness
Because I’m going to close my eyes
I’d better refrain from having fun and fall
Into the hands of heavenly angels
and vanish
along with all those splendid days
That won’t come back

Thousands of windows close
And darkness wins

Bats and seagulls
Flying side by side
Every night
We come home
And pretend the world
Is not the place
For disheartening
Souls

Thousands of windows close
And darkness wins
Track Name: Knife Or Gun?
Should I get rid of your love
Baby, baby
With knife or a gun?
Baby, baby
Should I say something first?
Baby, baby
Or should I listen to your last words?

Oh, I hope you’ll
Take this like a man
You’ve got the right
To fall and crawl

Should I get rid of your soul
Baby, baby
With a smile or a somber look?
Baby, Baby
Should I forget what you’ve done
Baby, Baby
And let a bleeder dishonor me so much?
Baby, Baby


Oh, I hope you’ll take
This like a man
You’ve got the right
To cry and fall
I hope you’ll take
This like a man
Tonight you’re mine
I’m right and you’re wrong

Oh, my darling
Goodbye, farewell
Words can’t stop me now
Pray there’s somebody
Pray there’s somebody
Who will know who you are

Oh, I hope you’ll
Take this like a man
You’ve got the right
To cry and fall
I hope you’ll take
This like a man
Tonight you’re mine
I’m right and you’re wrong

Oh, my darling
Goodbye, farewell
Words can’t stop me now
Pray there’s somebody
Pray there’s somebody
Who will know you’re gone
Track Name: You Were Loved
She’s ascending
She's ascending with a smile
Feels a presence
A resounding angels choir
Here they come
They can see what’s on your mind
In this chapel
All the shadows left behind

You Were Loved

Hear me, Alice
We’ve been waiting for a sign
Now descending
Electricity in your heart
Life goes on
Just embrace what lies in store
All is sadness
But your sadness is uncaused

You Were Loved

You’re mine
Your soul is mine
Track Name: 8 Billion Bastards
So good for the world
And so bad for me
Don’t tell me you know
What is best for me
The lowest common
Anonymous denominator
Bored human-like demonstrators
Supporting grand old smiling dictators
Mirrors online
May the natural selection begin

Listen to the flowers burning
Listen to the rifles loading
Listen to the shadows crawling
Listen to the lemmings falling
Raise the death toll
8 billion bastards running

Destitute of shame and fortune
Resolute to fake and forget
Desperate for disgrace and glory
Destined to be enslaved and sorry
Same drugs, same thoughts
8 billion bastards swarming

Unrequited love
For mankind within
You don’t tell me I’m wrong
You don’t lie to me
I’ll guide all the asteroids towards this planet
I’d lead the big black stork to all nations
This world is nothing without decemation
Mirrors online
May the natural selection begin

Sometimes I feel compassion
For the creator of all truth
Scream with me, your highness
Life like all life: doomed
Track Name: Under The Effect Of Blood
Just say yes to her drugs and
They’ll close their eyes so that you can smile
High speed train, all doors open
Here we are
Under the effect of blood

Open your arms
Lower your guard
Let the sky in
Windows cracking

You
Can always feel
Something else
You’re the passer-by
Just count the Suns
in the Sky
And let the wind
take the lead
Be someone else
Someone you are not
Follow your bliss
Up to the abyss

Secret battles, hidden castles, walls are ready to fall
Your body is changing your soul
Your thoughts are under control
Life’s the nearest death experience
That you’ll ever have
Your body is changing your soul
Your thoughts now under control
Live transmissions from the past, your future is falling apart
Your body changing your soul
Thoughts are under control
There’s a prison inside the prisoner
but there’s time after life tonight

Sleep persuasion, the dream amnesia
We’re in control, we’re the soul uploaders at night
Be transformed by the renewal of your mind, we’re the puppeteers
Weaving all of your morning thoughts

Climb the ladders we show
Hide the diamonds we stole
Learn the dharmas we know
Catch the knives that we throw
Fight the demons we owe
Kill the flowers we grow
Witchcraft in space, the session is done

If you wanna feel your pain
If you wanna play your part
If you wanna bleed again
If you wanna see your scars

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Open your eyes and come alive

And please remember on your way out
there’s more to life than
the hardships
the anger
the mourning
the anguish
the waiting
the longing
the sadness
the darkness
there’s more to life

Open your arms
Lower your guard
Let the sky in
Windows cracking

There’s no end in sight
No way to escape
Don’t let me awake to make the same mistakes
Track Name: Body For 2
This must be a sad occasion
Because everyone I love is here
They stare in desperation
Is his past inside of me?

Been sleeping all the time
Headaches all day long
A victim with no crime
Forgetting every word
Any God would have long intervened

Would you mind
Being quiet for a while
So I can hear myself?
Would you smile
And deny that life is not as we had planned?
Would you be as kind as to try
Not to cry for all the help I want?

Didn’t know so many things could
Be destroyed inside of me
Now everyone is a stillborn
What was I going to think next?

Neurons in the dark
Dead end for your blood
Vessels explode
Brain to hell first
And my mind is boring me

Chorus
Track Name: She's One Of Them
She’s one of them (4x)

When she was young and hopeless
Stars aligned for the surrogates
She claims her mind got filled up with voices
And prayers from the outer space

Trapped demons, lost composure
A lion mask for the vulture-faced
She said she wants this world to explode
Just so God could be left to himself

She’s One of Them (8x)
Track Name: Once Beautiful
I know it’s their turn to be the young
It’s now their turn to be in love
All life is cursed and then bestowed
Destined to be once beautiful

There ain’t no master plan
Oh, where are you, Adonai?
Aloof and a thousand miles
Apart from my over-soul
Apart from my over-soul

I know I’ve been blessed for just too long
My time has passed, my moment is gone
Another day might be enough
To wreck a lifetime of good luck

There ain’t no master plan
Oh, where are you, Adonai?
Aloof and a thousand miles
Apart from my over-soul
Apart from my over-soul

There will be no other world
There will be no other start
There will be no one to hold
There will be no one to love
There will be no other Earth
There will be no other start
There will be no other love
There will be no other life
Nothing ever lasts forever
Track Name: Just Like That
Back into her arms the roses for the dead
Buried deep inside this land with everyone
We can hear the soldiers plunder all the same
Cells in veins conspire and we hope it won’t be long

Just Like That
Dandelions find their way back to the Sun
Track Name: YHWH
One day the saddest day
The saddest day will come
When no one’s left to love
And a stranger is everyone
A Moon without its phase
Abandoned Sun in space
Smile three times a day
And they will never know
You’re sad and disgraced
Silence and pain
Wishing good memories would go away
In a sad world only sadness finds the truth
And I am the one who can cry over this
God at a glance and
We are scared at the view
This only happens to those
Who wait (Yah Vey)
Starve and pray
Fall and praise
Sob and say
Amen

If you won’t love what you’ve made
If you can’t show me your name
A threnody is sung for the sake
Of all those that you will forsake
