Late at night when I can't sleep My mind wanders around my room, and I dream about my shattered emotions, the loss of what you took away...
Walk on hot coals Until you fall on your back Eyes ablaze Put me in the shade Your emotional overkill Makes everyone a slave Bodies burn in ice A knifeblade to your neck A wasteland of guilt But who can convince you You´ve started talking to yourself And you live off everyone else With a temperamental strategy A mind with no ambition You make others feel the need To live with hedonism Living in a cage Holding out your hands Screaming at a wall And no one understands As the echo eats away At your pride and dignity And no-one really cares You´ve got the nerve To offer sex as consolation For all the things that you´ve taken You´re a psychic vampire! Using others´ guilt as your control When you feel the grip is sliding You´ll crush the ego Leaving empty souls in limbo Crying for your help Voracious laughter The devil´s vice...
Maggots 04:25
Always looking for an insult Well I can´t talk to you I´ve got something on my mind Something on my mind And like a maggot It´s eating me up inside Watch out for the heartless Waiting for the kill And as the violins sail To quote the virtues of despair Quote the virtues of despair Ooh like a maggot It´s eating me up inside Eating me up inside It´s crawling inside my flesh Crawling inside my flesh!
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!
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
Suffocation 03:09
Now I can´t be sure of my feelings Whether they are right or wrong Whether thay are right or wrong I´m running off in all directions And I´m hoping that it´s not Going to take this long And there´s a price you pay for pride But who can I trust? Now who can I trust? I´m surrounded in a light opens all arond me Thundershowers in ivory towers I see the rain coming down It´s coming down on you When the sun comes up I´ll leave this place And start looking for another life to live It´s all in the dreams you´re dreaming It´s all in the amount of time you give People will come back and people will go away But the ones you trust are not the ones who wish they stayed I see the rain coming down It´s coming down on you Thundershowers in ivory towers Coming down on you But what´s important is experience And by that time you will know Over and over they´ll come back again But what´s important is experience And by that time you will know
