Once I would think “I choose my destiny” Shields against the pain I began to rise I swore nothing would hurt me anymore Cold walls, smooth like gold, I began to grow Behind these walls I faded My fears held deep inside But still the world remained outside Though I had closed my eyes Though nobody knows the cross I bear And I cry with no tears The darkness is my only guiding light HIDE the scars that never show Now nothing gets through me anymore The feelings I denied, distant dreams in my mind Once I would think “I can rule everything” (I) was such a fool hoping to feel no pain (I) swore to the world “nothing will hurt me anymore” Cold, vain like gold, I threw away my days Behind the walls put up the fears bestowed far away But still the world remained there, Although I had closed my eyes It Was like dying !!!! HIDE the scars so they won’t show The lies don’t get to me anymore The feelings I denied, now laid on my bed When darkness was my only light I longed to feel my pain The pain that tells you you’re alive A feeling denied This creature inside I know what I am breeding I’ll be here to hold it with my lies A fiend to be tamed By sipping its bane I know on what I am feeding I believe I’ll show you through my eyes Behind the walls I put up, the fears bestowed far away But still the world remained there Although I had closed my eyes I’m the one who knows the wounds are there Thought covered with this hate The darkness is my only guiding light HIDE the scars so they won’t show The lies don’t get to me anymore The feelings I denied, now laid on my bed… …laid on my bed

In my night, There’s a sudden clattering A brand new voice, Coming up the stairs to find me Wakes me and pours on me Some daylight Burning through my sleepy eyes But warming Warming up all my frozen feelings There is no rest ‘cause now the call is loud My reason flooded By your face Fire grows inside my dried neglected heart Breaks my shell Now the light Throws some shades behind Just a brush stroke of night Still endless pit to fall without end (There was) No lack of fear In my endless nights Like an illness you can't cut out She made it end And still I’m sad I can’t tell you why There is no chance My foresight disbanded My reason fooled again Shield me Help me You own me (You’re) The first thought at dawn (You’re) The last thought at night You’ll never, never let me drift away Hold me Save me I plead you Let me have some peace Let me taste full love Let me see the closure of my void

Walk Now to reach your home Will she wait for you? Wait Till the end of night Until you bend down All (my) mistakes Every dream Could all this be wrong? I can’t breathe now As I need you I can’t live...no more Victimize Play your part Could all this be right? Can’t you feel this Strain that tears The remains of us? So many thorns tied Around my white limbs You’ll never trust me Empty dreams Fragile hopes See what we are all just living for Climbing over What we trust Just a step to fall Time after time all the words, all your lies sound in my ears piercing me Tied to a dream we should reach out a new form to let us be clouding fear is all I perceive I’m standing here but I sink Losing the world I belong to I can’t stand or walk no more Would you fly with me, or just flee Fearing the thing inside of me Don’t you see this? Won’t you be with me? No, don’t tell me That now all is fine... Will you let me Crumble from the sky? Tied to a dream we should reach out A new form to let us be Clouding fear is all I perceive I’m standing here but I sink Losing the world I belong to I can’t stand or walk no more Would you fly with me, or just flee Fearing the things, fearing what we can give Can we live our life Can we live Living all without Any hope

I – TABULA RASA Scream aloud The way that I harmed you Show me how you’re feeling Without me And I lay down Counting the tears licking only memories I can’t live Please save for me Now all the things You didn’t give… me Please bury me With all our dreams... Pathetic hopes I gave my soul You gave only coldness I feel injured I long to erase my feelings Break the nerves in me Kill my weakness I won’t need you (I’ll) Never crave your touch Anymore I won’t need you No more turning back It’s too late To heal these wounds Forged sorrow (I) don’t believe your act Dreams that grew behind you Turned to stone Help yourself with All that I wished, Everything you didn’t Share with me So can’t you see This winding path Entrapping me Spite grows inside (Now) I feed myself With unknown banes I gave my soul You gave only coldness I feel injured I long to erase my feelings Break the nerves in me Kill my weakness I won’t need you (I’ll) Never crave your touch It’s too late To heal these wounds II – ILLUSION FOR A NEW MIND Now That I'm a projection I can hide >From the things I can’t foresee No dreams inside my head And no grief for your lost love ‘cause when you close your eyes The world goes on to be It’s just you that Cannot see I go back in time To when I didn’t feel at all Now I can deny All the love you had from me Healing all my wounds With my woven pain This time I’m dripping blood for real You lied (to) me I know that look Contemn me The silence holds the storm Silence comes To fill the void The scars are gone, are mended And the cries, The shouting nights between us Are now over My control is my pride... III – FAILURE IN REINVENTING MYSELF I cannot fight My rage The treason burns under my skin I cannot soothe The ache The struggle grown inside of me I want to taste Your sorrow The same you drove inside my life I want to kill The pain That you gave out You try to tame me And what you say Is like a whip beating my face I plead But you are crazed Who will demand For your offence I’ll never trust some else to try I will, I’ll have my vengeance I can’t lead my life to rest She won’t sing the words for me Of tender lullabies My dreams are so deranged I cannot fight my rage The treason burns below my skin I want to kill the pain That you gave out Treason burns through my skin

What I can recall Is the pain from those cold words And all my dreams turned into grief And you, you knew I'd rather die Now, inside my dream your lips are still Your eyes so kind no spite behind in death you're lovely once again Now speak to me tell me what is love The love you killed without a reason You can't have forgotten this Now feed my hate pour salt in my wounds Now There is no life There is no hope, no reason You were so distant You gave me lies and sorrow You walked away Confirming all I've thought You gave me coldness I'd like you stiff and mealy I want to have you cold, in glass And exposed for me I can't fulfil my dream I'm lost inside my wish I know who told you lies who darkened your vision I can't obliterate The struggle in my head Through pains and penalties he'll pay all his dues

(The) Hour Is coming In which you'll hear the voice You'll be judged (And) for your sins condemned I see the inner features behind the handsome light She was mine... Ancient Serpent who leads the world astray I'll stretch my hand and strike his flesh and bones He's the liar She's a vessel He speaks through her His the words Her the mouth My hell on earth Where fire never shall be quenched Where worms never die I'll take you who stole my loving I'll take you who lied If your hands offended me I'll cut away those evil things If your eye offended me I'll pluck it out your the pain shall be I am gonna read aloud The words of prophecies You are gonna hear the words because your time is near Written on your flesh The law shall be You who steals the souls and feeds on dreams Ancient Serpent who leads the world astray I'll stretch my hand and strike his flesh and bones He's the liar She's a vessel He speaks through her His the words Her the mouth My hell on earth You Serpent! You spread of Vipers! You cannot escape the damnation of hell

Now I can see the fragments of your weak emotions Not the darkest of passions like this hate that grows in me. I’ll turn your life into an empty place A beast will rise, a child of a frightening mind I’ll delve into your deepest soul, reaping I will get to you. Nothing left to spare when you’ve lost it all, your certainties will be consumed Spirals of whispers thundering my brain, and for this he shall crawl This pain... Now, you remain hostile and don’t listen (to) my wisdom Multiplying your afflictions seven times for each of your sins You can just die, the vengeance is nearly mine God give me the strength to be the reaper in this game You’ll fall into the deepest hole, digging I will drag you down Nothing is left to spare when you’ve lost it all, my sickness will become your home Take you down will be my pleasure now just to know I’ve come to ruin and to swallow all. Got to start from what you have and love sucking down your broken heart tearing down, tearing down your world. I only have to scythe your world. I only have to scythe your soul. I will raze your world You’ll fall into the deepest hole, digging I will drag you down. Nothing is left to spare when you’ve lost it all, my sickness will become your home. I’ll delve into your deepest soul, reaping I will get to you. Burning all around, burning all around, your certainties will be consumed

Victim lies here, naked and battered Just for me Bound with bracelets, chains, and laced To fit my needs You try to understand The way that brought this end I'm pleased to tell you To taste your fear Maiming You! Praying me, this helpless beast To spare it's life Wicked thoughts, perverse, forlorn I'm here alone I've never been this close To try and kill the cause Of my damnation And cut it's throat Killing this Hungry beast! Some lost thoughts find their way To the dome where I hold my rage Words of wrong and right of peace and fight like a beam Trying to show the way Behind the screen Of my dream In this place I see that something's lost And my plot Is somehow like a ghost Now I face the things I have done Bring the blade To taste my very flesh

These tears that clung to me Cannot wash the sadness This void that fills my brain Omen of close darkness Let me be in a different place Let me run away So, you were there My old nemesis Lying on the ground With only a few Chances to live In your eyes my reflection Never seen before Showing a face I didn’t know I can’t go that way There are shadows that crawl Up to me Where to run Where to flee There’s nothing left for me Sneering life mocking me Now I’ve lost all my games and self-esteem. In my heart In my soul (There’s) nothing to seize this time But pain Run away From those scary eyes If you think you can But if you turn back The beast runs with you Can’t outrun that... I can’t go that way There are shadows that crawl Up to me Where to run Where to flee There’s nothing left for me A lonely run from here I flee through the night Burying me In my heart In my soul I can’t forsake all this Can’t forsake all this Leave your hate behind you to conceal The beast inside an empty place of darkness You can’t fight forever (but) I can’t tear An inner part of me ...I’m falling down I’m falling down... down Leave no trace! Leave your hate behind you to conceal The beast inside an empty place of darkness You can’t fight forever (but) I can’t tear An inner part of me I’m falling DOWN
