Bloodcurse 04:16
In this world that time forgot I am lost again I lie awake somewhere alone Forever in a dream, a dream And the feeling in my blood I can never let it out This heart of darkness This night of pain It all becomes so far away In this space when I have gone You will be found again And the ties that bind me here Never let us go And the danger in my blood Is this who I am? This heart of darkness This night of pain I can't make it go away And the feeling in my blood I can never let it out This heart of darkness This night of pain It all becomes so far away and the feeling in my blood I can't make it go away

Yearning 04:49 video
Watching you closely Only your naked skin Every movement Pulling me in Could you ever hold me this way Will I ever feel safe again? Desire in a single heartbeat Every breath a sacrifice Nothing will stop the yearning Everytime you look away The distance will kill me Every moment I give in I'm still yearning Desire in every heartbeat Every breath a sacrifice The image repeats, the scenery changes The scenery changes the image remains the same To die with you now
3.
Defenseless 04:43
On the path that you have tread Where others try to follow When the ravens fly within your grasp The images of yesterday will tell the truth again No one can escape the pain of knowing how it ends You rendered me defenseless Images held out for ransom You rendered me defenseless When I needed your protection All the weapons that you choose And the fortresses you've built Is no security inside your mind When logic seems to fail Keep the secrets to no avail Oblivious behind these walls No structure can remain forever Forever And the games that we have played We knew the rules so well Every battle that we chose Broken by entanglements Stand above it all Til the figures fall again

15 Minutes 04:21
The world becomes your stage The performance is just beginning Who is watching Eye of the beholder Move towards another day In the stillness In the silence One lasting impression is taking you away Just another 15 minutes Just another second hand I am running faster Just as fast as I can Just another 15 minutes Between the hands of time The clock is ticking faster When will my life unwind? The hands of time going wrong Taking another life Meaning disappears After the lights go out Observing you Save a photograph Posession of what never can be My own reality Just another 15 minutes Just another second hand I am running faster Just as fast as I can Just another 15 minutes The second hand unwinds When the clock is ticking Another life you'll find The direction is wrong tonight My blood screams Just another 15 minutes Another second hand When the clock is ticking Run as fast as I can Just another 15 minutes See the hands entwine I am running faster To find another life

Colder than the September Moon This is where it ends With a kiss in the rain And then you turn away I will stand here waiting for another year Pictures fade and drown a memory Colder than the last words you said This is where it ends And we wander like ghosts When the leaves have fallen down Time will be waiting for us On the this night again Looking up to the heavens We were meant to be I will still be waiting for another year Pictures fade and drown a memory Colder than the last words you said This is where it ends Colder than the last words you said This is where it ends Pictures fade and drown a memory Just a kiss in the rain We were meant to be This September Moon

Your desperation No hesitation A shallow nation never satisfied Anticipation Cheap imitation Lost generation And there's nowhere to hide No matter what you say or do You know there's no escape this time The price is paid The stakes are high But I can't give you anymore And now you've gone and fooled yourself There's nothing better that you will find And all the time it makes you blind But I don't care I'm not the belonging kind This devastation No expectation Over saturation Playing with your mind Imagination Inter-relation Lost motivation Someone's dying inside Push it, shove it Take a close up Make you blind
7.
Until 04:04
Even when it falls away Then the words escape me Every night it seems like murder You wander in the rain I look into uncertain eyes And I see it all Avenue of broken dreams Watched it from afar No more sleep Out of focus Until Can't even stay in character Can find no resting place Until This avenue of broken dreams I can see it all Look into uncertain eyes Watched you from afar Until
8.
11th Hour 03:52
This beating heart A stolen breath And then you say Our love is dying A darkened sky And devil moon Those clear blue eyes Long to taunt you Now there's no pretending Everything you knew is ending At the eleventh hour Who's going to save you now? At the eleventh hour Who's going to save you now? A razorblade A sharpened lie The secret room This desperate cry Now there's no pretending Everything you knew is ending Who's going to save you now? This is the 11th hour This is the 11th hour

Fighting on the line Between justice an damnation And they believed for centuries But we'll never know If it was meant to be How does it show? Fighting on the line Between justice an damnation Will the fire never stop How can anyone die For another's foolish thoughts? When you breathe your last breath Must the rage still linger on? Belief can make you strong Belive can give you something But not without love You only breed contempt Belief can make you strong Belive can give you something Just to carry on This is not love When you only breed contempt Why must the rage still linger on? Fooling ourselves again

Buried Alive 08:12
I am buried alive Lying within this grave Night falls on every embrace Burniug for one more kiss Take a taste of this All that's left to give Never had a reason to go Buried alive You had no reason to go You had no reason to go Never find a resting place Hold my breath until next time Next time I am lying upon my grave When night falls Burning for one more kiss Take another taste of this All that's left to give Left to give My funeral Until the next time Until the next time Holding my breath Buried alive Alive!

about

Psyche is dead - Long live Psyche - Info from 2005

After 20 years and ten official albums the Psyche everyone thought they knew has ended. Today they've reached their 11th Hour.

It's the time when one finds themselves in an emergency situation.
Everything screams for hope of survival, open to all possibilities. Instinctive.

This is not a continuation of Psyche's past releases - this is the purgatory and the revelation. Not really "Pop" music but songs nonetheless, a collection of raw nerves, desperation, adrenaline, and erupting passion.
The lyrics and soundtrack are of fitting intensity. This album, the swan song enabling rebirth.

Bloodcurse - The curse of inheritance, of the flesh and bone, and thought that makes us what we are. What does one do with these abilities? What are the limits, the fears, and how does one go beyond the path they have tread?

Yearning - when obession tears the fabric of your soul, but the sensation itself becomes your pleasure.

Defenseless - You are finally aware that you are powerless, you can't move. Naked in the battle, you search for a meaning to hold on to.

15 Minutes - the horror and disgust at obsession with recognition, the questions you ask yourself after losing the moment, again and again.
The senselessness you find on the dark side of Andy Warhol's prediction of "15 Minutes Of Fame" for all.

This and more are the emotional turmoils represented here. A life in question, a question of life!

Despite the unpredictable, there are melodies, rhythms, and the unique emotional vocals of Darrin C. Huss that guide you through these rites of passage. It's an album, that even without understanding the words, one will feel what it's all about. This earnest symbiosis is what makes Psyche as prevalent, and extraordinary as ever.
