In the morning when I awake The room spins ´round my stomach ache That leads straight to my head The curtains are closed The room is cold And there´s nothing left but my memory Scratching the air Another body falls to the floor And a disfigured face waits at the door As the brain collapses And you couldn´t ever call this living When you´re just physically going through directions Trying to avoid the obvious dead end I don´t want to see the obvious dead end As the brain collapses

MR.EYEBALL OOZE His hands Clenching cold steal mirror bars Pulsate muscle and blood React to the echo worlds His lips crack like baked leather as he gags The glass between his eyes is breaking Mr.Eyeball Ooze Wailing in the background, breakdown As someone screams Liquid scenes of trench warfare Pour down the black interior Of his perfectly inflated eyelids Eyelids! He doesn´t know if he´s screaming His ears are nowhere to be seen Mr.Eyeball Ooze His hands Clenching cold steal mirror bars Pulsate muscle and blood React to the echo worlds Collide at a glance He hears voices Do you hear voices? I can´t get them out of my head! I can't get them out of my head! Mr. Eyeball Ooze In a factory workstore He becomes a machine!

Wrench 03:48
WRENCH I´m learning what I like about myself By knowing what I hate about you You´re on the one up I´m on the down But what makes you so sure? What makes you so sure? There´s a wrench in your plans There always will be Until you can stomp on Everyone like me The bible tells me what´s right or wrong The government tells me what´s right or wrong My mind tells me What´s right or wrong But you tell me my mind is wrong My mind is wrong Wrench in your plans

The saint became a lush Dipping into fortune´s dreams He never understood There are forces beyond belief Expensive lessons to be learned Memories are calling He walked out on the balcony Looked out over the den of sin Wondered where this madness leads to Grim purpose left no stone unturned Absorbed too much The saint became a lush

THE CRAWLER Look at it's eyes I see it's eyes look straight ahead They're looking straight ahead It's picking up trash, picking up trash As it moves along Keep moving, keep moving It slides into the bump and grind When the time is right, it will unwind Crawl, it's going to crawl Until we can't do a thing at all Nuclear powered, it advances now It's growing, it's growing It creates the body of our minds When we least expect, it will unwind Crawl, it's going to crawl Until we can't do a thing at all Crawl like maggots into earth We will crawl from our birth We are the crawler!

CAUGHT IN THE ACT I know the situation That you´re the contact man It´s all falling through your fingers It´s time to score a better plan Move on out tomorrow night We ain´t got time to kill If you think you can´t get caught in the act I can guarantee you will Look out for the white lies They´ll just get in the way Don´t get too impatient We can´t afford to waste another day Waiting for all the parts to fit Time to make the clocks stand still If you think you can´t get caught in the act I can guarantee you will

NOCTURNAL PASSENGER The night so dark whispers in my ear Words so cruel shower me with fear The bloodskinned man is waiting near Nocturnal passenger The moon´s eyes sharpen time´s detail Charcoal trains break system fails A vision in my window begins to wail Nocturnal passenger The shadows move out of their binds The discourse of the night unwinds I race to reach daylight in time Nocturnal passenger

CHILDREN CARRY KNIVES You felt me kiss you like a punch in the face Your soul is damned by several sins Just trying to get by You believe in your lies Ignorant to the truth Children carry knives Noise in the background Only the hungry are free But we fight and love With false chivalry Everything is clear as babies cry And children carry knives And you scream and yell At the violent offspring But it´s a shallow attempt at making sense When you live with sadistic intention Our defence is our destruction And our laws for protection Are sometimes enough to kill Frustration builds with everything You try to hide Leader of organisation Growing in anger with all we learn The code of ethics is changed When our backs are turned Strength is the answer Passive protest starts to weaken But before the fall Children carry knives Children carry knives!

UNVEILING THE SECRET The words made flesh And I could touch their skin A landscape of desperation No great army, no soldier of fortune Could get me through that day The action was so revealing That the feeling will never go away Hold on to me and I´ll give you my pulse I find the need so appealing Untie the knots in my soul Until I feel the secret unveiling I reach up for any face I was never good at concealing But I have the nerve I´ve pushed before If only to bury the fear You wear a coat of armour I´ll take the chance And break through that shield Hold onto me I´ll give you my pulse I find myself reaching too far

SCREAMIN' MACHINE Take you down the rocky road All the way to hell C'mon let's go for a ride I'm an easy one to handle Green eyes on the dashboard Watching you from every angle C'mon let's go for a ride I'm an easy one to handle My mechanical dream is a screamin' machine Corpse riding in the backseat You've got the keys to my heart My motor runs on your soul My mechanical dream is a screamin' machine Don't stand in my way now I'll wipe you right out of the road! My mechanical dream is a screamin' machine

Misery 04:06
MISERY From my sleep at night to when I wake I see things that make me afraid On the other side of the darkness A body that doesn't feel quite like my own I don't know what it really means To keep my dignity I was blind but now I see I'm trapped by misery Cities I don't recognize And people that I cannot place I followed by an angry vision A past i know I cannot erase I don't know what it really means to keep my dignity I was blind but now I see I'm trapped by misery Don't know where I'm going Because I can't see the end of the road Without the truth of the story I'm afraid of what I've been told

INSATIABLE I close my eyes to try and forget All the things that you said I should have known it wasn´t right To force the blame on you Memories will fade away Along with the passing time But I can´t seem to let you go From my dreams at night Tears that burned in my eyes Leaving me the wretched soul I´ve got to fill this emptiness I am insatiable Insatiable

PRISONER TO DESIRE I walked along the ocean´s breaking waves I think I opened the wrong door And now there´s no room for walking And I can´t hear you talking Now that you´ve locked me in You take me out of my mind But I can turn around anytime I´m just a prisoner to desire And when I touch you Can you feel the fire? Cause now I know I don´t want to escape I can never be lost if I see you tonight You always take your time to hold on Now I know you will be running But there´s nowhere you can go Now that I´ve touched your skin You take me out of my mind But I can turn around anytime I´m just a prisoner to desire And when I touch you Can you feel the fire? Cause now I know I don´t want to escape
