A Trick 07:44
A TRICK the angel wings you gave me they led me to the sky then you took my eyes and threw them away, made me blind and no one noticed the passers-by trod on me, tearing my skin do you care 'bout people dying? do you wonder if they're lying? I can't live but I'm still trying I can't stop now so weak and helpless lying on the ground frozen and still the stones I'm throwing are heading for me breaking my will it's snowing in paris people scream for nothing, over the words we said revelations leaking - a price that must be paid decadence is coming, they get what they can steal all will be revealed still misled by false convictions hypnotized by televisions I fall from grace your hands on me, that's all I feel night is falling like a shroud on the firing lines in this land of mine you took my eyes, then tears fell silently diamonds and shining gems to reach and damn, reaching none of them incantation, conjuration a trick of passion I've been told it's snowing in paris I float in your sea it's not letting me drown is this an unaware farewell? I fall from grace your hands on me are all I feel night is falling like a shroud on the firing lines in this land of mine you took my eyes, then fears came silently is it snowing in paris?

WHEN I FELL OUT OF THE SKY things you find wandering like a flower that you’ve never seen before right behind a verdant hill I am lying (e)motionless and cold as stone climb up these woollen walls change your point of view fall down into my mouth I was pink, now I’m blue eyes wide sad, but that’s okay stay here peaceful while my body gently warps bodies die, rot away you love feeding on my sweet decaying corpse stranded, marooned (when I fell out of the sky) in my fine decay (still I did not realize) maggots in my soft wound (I was going to fall apart) taste me, (I was going to lose my heart) then get their wings and fly away when I fell out of the sky still I did not realize I was going to lose my heart….. (when I fell out of the sky) won't you tell me where you've been? (still I did not realize) happiness is here today (I was going to fall apart) I love you and you love me (I was going to lose my heart) but you get wings and fly away...

THE DOOR TO YOU real is a tower buried in the sea and the sea inside the town steel, dust and smoke and clockwork machines rusting where sunbeams break down run away from redemption ground running through the traffic lanes the sounds of flowing life drown out the sound of a thunder without rain see a shiny garden full of blooms and trees where once were white stones feel inside a singing of happiness and glee and a sense of being home as I walk in again and stay a while like I never did before to spend the night where the dark can’t reach you anymore the road is long, you have to go ain’t gonna follow you I'm not starting from this room who locked the door to you? overcome, you gotta go but I can’t get to you I tried to break into your room who locked the door to you? you're a clear blue sky in a cage of steel watched by hard days with no eyes that should make us feel so blind everybody's trading sentiment and bliss for new days of vanity spirits of the sunrise all come out and speak then the proud ones will see reality is the new idea of light reality is everywhere a fly killed by the spider a car that killed the rider, everywhere we are clear blue skies in a cage of steel watched by dark days with no eyes that should make us feel the road is long, you have to go ain’t gonna follow you one last song to leave this room who locked the door to you? overcome, you gotta go but I can’t get to you I tried to break into your room who locked the door to you? the road is long, you have to go you chose to follow through the song you sang, the gun you drew who locked the door to you? on the floor a man is sleeping, I can’t get to you on the floor a man is sleeping is the door still locked to you?

SHOOTING STARS stay for a moment enjoy the streets alight they're so bright they hide the milky way tonight that's what they gave us but storms are breaking through clouds of endless rainfall uprisings have begun peace will be our goal even when, one by one the stars fall down like men.

A DYSTOPIAN TALE what if I shut your blue eyes with a blindfold made of lies? don't tell me you'd never do this, 'cause we all have a price you can't move, you cannot even say a word you can't say a word you try so hard to speak but you will not be heard you will not be heard, yeah your mouth is full of sand and your hands are tied so tight you thought that you could mess with masters and their neat vermillion ties but you are their scapegoat and there's nothing you can do you should know they were created to give you life to then take it back from you (you) should know storms are still breaking through flesh is slain with knives what if you could see through mirrors and maybe find the truth? you can choose but nothing matters - yours is just a point of view you are just a shadow floating in the night, you're out of sight so who are you to say that you are right, right, right, alright you're a wave lost in the ocean, an answer in the wind but no one recalls the question, so be more disciplined now you're in this game where every day is the same but you know they were created to give you life to then take it back from you (you) do know storms are still breaking through flesh is slain with knives (now you know) they were created to bless our lives (so well) but they cursed us all (they please you, then take your life) now you know (now you know) storms are still breaking through (so well) flesh is slain with knives

1994 08:39
1994 come here when everyone’s gone home ‘cause the night can surround us at any time dreams are dreaming the darkened streets one of the darkened streets is mine   yesterday and for evermore 
come here when everyone’s gone home I see a shadow in your eyes maybe the lights are not bright enough distorting the truth and the lies 
(yesterday) immortal in the air scattering the fears away (and for evermore) you’ll hear music all around you 
silver and gold in your hands you open them and spread redeeming material life but your heart is still bleeding and i can see it, I can see it in your eyes 
come here when everything is gone 'cause the night is around us one more time dreams are leaving the darkened streets one of these darkened streets is mine 
yesterday and for evermore.

BEFORE THE WRATH anything that falls is unwanted as planes in flight are searching for applause and though we try to escape that we grieve and struggle red in tooth and claw the visions flow in my head tear-stained eyes all the good things gone bad tears run dry the clapping hands that smile in approval they're hard to understand they're pictures on the wall with satellite t.v. anyone can see but they don't watch at all radioactive snow's an ill omen it's something that no sun can ever melt if there's a time for sorrow it arose while we were doing something else the flames burn high in my head bloodshot eyes all the good things gone bad anger rises we don’t care about the light burning in that field so bare there’s a man asking for help fascinated by the flare a man with a beaten child inside beats a child who’ll hate the world outside with the wave comes the high tide all this fucking town will die before the wrath before the wrath before the wrath… radioactive snow is still falling it's something that no sun can ever melt we had a bright tomorrow which in the end turned into something else the visions flow in my head tear-stained eyes all the good things gone bad tears run dry

Cold Sun 06:24
COLD SUN seeking for so long a sense of right and wrong in my daydream rain is falling down blending into my bloodstream under the sun the fall has begun zeroes dressed in white captivate the light in the longest sleep I guess there's something more than crawling on the shore, at sea I've been water, I've been rainfall now I'm concrete, now I'm a dry wall still I miss the days of dreams and laughter when there was no warning of demise I tried to run away the morning after just to fall into the mud of loss and compromise drowning in the stream of countless ordinary days watch the few surviving lights slowly fade away this road is longer than before I just can't take it anymore and the shining sun won't heat me, no but I won't grow cold maybe grow old watching up above on the blue screen the biggest flock of birds i've ever seen is anything left for me of all the great things that could have been? did you ever feel in chains with nothing in your hands except your humming head? always yearning for the stars shining free and grand but the stars are stuck in the sky instead still I miss the days of dreams and laughter when there was no warning of demise I tried to run away the morning after just to fall into the mud of loss and compromise compromise (living) compromise (bleeding) compromise

Wreckage 05:06
WRECKAGE no one knows what we've seen no one knows what we'll see nothing will be the same though we dance again once more we saw the lies we chose that wrong was right drops of rain down the wall as thick as blood and icy cold running down on to the floor and no god to call violins will play one more song and sirens will be heard, we'll dance along we will float in the ocean we will dance in the sea……

NAIL IN MY HAND (Redubmix) you are my broken bones you are my blurry sight you are the tar in my lungs that makes me cough at night you are my twisted heart blind and deaf to any call you are the nail in my hand I try so hard to get out still within reach of your clutch you're stuck between my ribs out of reach of my touch out of reach of my touch you are my broken bones you are my blurry sight you are the tar in my lungs that makes me cough at night you are my twisted heart blind and deaf to any call you are the nail in my hand you are the nail in my hand you are the nail in my hand never, never, never I try so hard to get out still within reach of your clutch you're stuck between my ribs out of reach of my touch out of reach of my touch
