Track Name: The Brain Collapses
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
Track Name: Mr. Eyeball Ooze
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!
Track Name: Wrench
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
Track Name: The Saint Became A Lush
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
Track Name: The Crawler (Dark Side Re-Edit)
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!
Track Name: Caught In The Act
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
Track Name: Nocturnal Passenger (Exclusive Mix)
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
Track Name: Dreamstreet
Instrumental
Track Name: Children Carry Knives
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!
Track Name: Unveiling The Secret
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
Track Name: Screamin' Machine
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
Track Name: Misery
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
Track Name: Insatiable (Chamber Mix)
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
Track Name: Prisoner To Desire (Intoxication Deluxe)
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
