Psyche Theme 02:48
Haunted 04:11
HAUNTED Attempts have failed Impulse leads to no avail Body weaving break the fall I'm coming through the wall Restless running Close behind you Razor eyes Coming through the wall Stretched across the sea of skin Instinct flows like a virus In my veins Teeth come flying out of darkness Hallway you just turned around Shows you no door And the leash breaks Coming through the wall It's coming through the wall I'm coming through the wall Haunting you
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
DARK POOL Patterns unresolved A car window is breathing The shapes of the trees are wrong tonight And you can't guess the illusion All the cards have been played Like a train that's leaving Faces tell a story In the dark pool
SALVATION STRANGER What did you expect to find Waiting all alone? Without a cross to bare In this haunted home I can't believe there was ever a choice But I've got to try Somedays are like magenta Colours out of time Will I ever fiond salvation In this world of mine? Dwelling like strangers In this castle of pain Feeling safe with the danger Then laying down the blame Somedays... Living In the grey world Hoping to save time Holding frozen pages Unforgotten rhymes Somedays..
The Sundial 03:38
THE SUNDIAL Sleeping alone at night In an empty house No one can hear your lonely sigh The walls are wide and claustrophobic Where will you go? To drown your sorrows The phone never rings The shadow of the night Permeates the empty space Where emotion once reside There was a time of colour And cheerful faces now like dust All becomes black and white Catatonic Like the sundial Shifting time Another day is all in motion Spring leaves to fall
Illusion 04:26
ILLUSION The inception I didn't understand But now I reason why You held the future in your hands The choice to live or die All the cards are on the table But now I see the face of death You can play if you are able As long as you can hold your breath Don't trust the illusion Where is the guarantee? Promise we forgot to lie When the sky came crashing down Before our very eyes Don't trust the illusion I chose the road less travelled by
Twilight 04:31
TWILIGHT Overcoat in the rain Waiting at the roadside Cars and trucks drive on It's almost dawn Door slams Water beating rhythms on glass Motor fuel keeping time Hypnotizing driver Where are you going? Take me with you Where are you gonig? I want to be there too Keeper of the twilight Let me spend the night Teeth sinking Eyes watching, tense After dark Smell of blood in the cold air It's almost dawn
THE INFLUENCE Time bends down on it's knees Waiting like this forever Who's going to be the next victim? I'm living without duress Forever in silence Forever in silence If I could But the clock is broken now I'm not going down Everything has it's price But I don't have to pay it Love I don't want to pay it No I'm not going down Under the influence
MISERY'S RETURN I can't go out in the cold anymore I'm afraid of what's around the corner I give to you my final breath Just to believe It will keep me warmer Misery, comfort me Unlock the key to my sanity I was blind but now I see I'm trapped by misery Why are you asking me that question?
