Track Name: DRIPPING LOW
DRIPPING LOW

Pray in the dark
For a light
But no one to lead her out
Move like a worm
Down in a hole
Weak as she’s never been before

Blessing the needle dripping low

Strange kind of less
Mark her face
I’ve wasted so many years
Treat her like shit
I admit it
I’m the one you love to hate

Blessing the needle dripping low
Cause she doesn’t want to feel no more
Tripping the ghost of her under the flood
Like an offrand to the gods
Here’s my breathing wounds
Track Name: CUT UP KIDS
CUT UP KIDS


Chasing the answers all night long
Until she forgets the questions
Tripping in these lights like a fly
The spider eats you alive

Insert the blade
Inside
Take me away
Unveil the bride

Cut after cut, burns and wounds
The scars will show you the worst
Cursing herself day by day
She can’t stand her eyes in the mirror

Crows waiting
Silently watching
This hole in the ground
Calls me so loud

She is the venom
The plague to bring me down
Track Name: REQUIEM
REQUIEM

Something is fading deep inside
In my own cage made of lies

And she creeps
To forgive you all
If it bleeds
It’s under control

I feel all ready for the last time
Hear me singing your requiem

And she left the game again
Turn off the light

Leaving in silence, a lesser patience
Wine and pills to meet the other me
The sky is low, it calls my ghost
This rusty razor looks like freedom to me

And she creeps
To forgive you all
If it bleeds
It’s under control

I feel all ready for the last time
Hear me singing your requiem
Sliding to nowhere, spit on my grave
Cause she finally falls from this chair
Embrace the doom

Turn off the lights and let it shine
Deeper through her tired eyes
She was always left behind
Track Name: YOUR STONE
YOUR STONE
I rest my soul upon the shore
My body won’t take anymore
Oh crying voices never fade
It’s cutting my ears, please take them away

And they say
Come inside...

Ravens flying all around
Spying on me, waiting for the dawn
I’ve lost my crown, the witch is done
All my words to crush against your stone

I break my bones and stand alone
All these shadows hide my own
Black feathers raining all upon the earth
The time has come to leave here, my curse

And they pray
For the end

Ravens flying all around
Spying on me, waiting for the dawn
I’ve lost my crown, the witch is done
All my words to crush against your stone
Ravens, rise above
Track Name: SAVE YOURSELF
SAVE YOURSELF

My redemption’s still so far away...
And I don’t deserve it anyway...
I've tried and I've felt...
In an endless lament...

Save yourself, run away from me ‘cause you still can
Don’t look back, let the time erase my name

I cross the line it doesn’t really matters in the end...
I stare at the flames, let their dances guide my hand...
I've lied and I've failed...
Forever chained...

Save yourself, run away from me ‘cause you still can
Don’t look back, let the time erase my name
Let it glow, the corpses mourn with fire
Animals are beasts, humans are monsters
Track Name: FLASHBACK
FLASHBACK

When all the colours turn to grey
This empty glass means to say
Nothing but a perfect fail
Oh I know I get lost anyway

Should I take my time and quietly
Try to save the last pieces of me

Cause there is no turning back
Here we are now
In my lightless heaven

God is a terrible child
Playing with us like he doesn’t mind
Here we are now
Toys broken on the floor

Sit on an ugly throne
Where the last will live forever
I'll be king of nothing down there

Teach me how to bleed without
Dying while I remain in the past
If the memories change in lies
Is that a sign?

The last traces of your body near
The last pulses of your heartbeats
Should I take my time and quietly
Try to save the last pieces of me

Flashback when you were mine
´cause I don’t think I could ever find
Another place for a presence like yours
I’m still yours...

Cause there is no turning back
Track Name: NO ONE SAYS GOODBYE LIKE ME
No One Says Goodbye Like Me

I am lies
Down my eyes you saw the reflection of my crimes

She sniffed the last one and it’s getting real clear
Everytime she tries it brings her back here

She quits and slides
Dragging herself deep down inside

I left my innocence
And create monsters in my mind

Open the door, I’ll do it my way
Give her a gun, she swear she’ll blow herself away

She quits and slides
Dragging herself deep down inside

She pulls the trigger and creates the thunder
A last roar of spitting fire
She shuts the voices in an ocean of blood
And let them drown with her soul
She quit and slides away from us...
Of all these cowards, I am the first...
Track Name: DOPE SICK LOVE
DOPE SICK LOVE

Over the troubles
Still bleeding on your tomb
Still lying, betraying but living
One more night without...
Stuck in a corner of her head
As if she could never be safe
Pale, the skin of our corpses fades to grey
On the concrete we lay

The back of her neck still sweating cold
Over the troubles she roam, alone
Tasting the bitter kisses of hell
Deception, we failed

Don’t need this razor anymore
Cut me! She left enough to a whore
Maybe she could never be saved
Her sins on a bed of regrets
I throw my heart to the lions and watch them eat it

Long is the night if you play with the angel's dust
Slow like your tongue when you possessed by demon's lust
She could not remember the sun light
We ´re all creatures at midnight
God is a pervert ‘cause he watches us do
And the fallen lead is through...
Grave's flowers bloom and her soul is gone
32 years drowned into the fog

The back of her neck still sweating cold
Over the troubles she roam, alone
Tasting the bitter liquid of hell
Frustration, we failed

Don’t need this razor anymore
Cut me! She left enough to a whore
Maybe she could never be saved
Her sins on a bed of regrets
I throw my heart to the lions and watch them eat it
