Shroud Of False
We are just a moment in time,
A blink of an eye,
A dream for the blind,
Visions from a dying brain,
I hope you don't understandback to top
Fragile Dreams
"Tonight your soul sleeps, but one day you will feel real pain,
maybe then you will see mee as I am,
A fragile wreck on a storm of emotion"

Countless times I trusted you,
I let you back in,
Knowing... Yearning... you know
I should have run... but I stayed

Maybe I always knew,
My fragile dreams would be broken for you.

Today I introduced myself,
To my own feelings,
In silent agony, after all these years,
They spoke to me... after all these years

Maybe I always knew...back to top
Empty
Empty vessel under the sun wipe the dust
from my face another morning black sunday
coming down again empty vessel empty veins
empty bottle wish for rain that pain again
wash the blood off my face the pulse from
my brain and i feel that pain again

im looking over my shoulder cos millions
will whisper im killing myself again maybe
im dying faster but nothing ever last i
remember a night from my past when i was
stabbed in the back and its all coming
back and i feel that pain again

i abhor you i condemn you cos this pain
will never end you got away without a
scratch and now youre walking on a lucky
path i have to laugh but youd better watch
your back

theres pathetic opposition theyre the
cause of my condition ill be coming back
for them ive a solution for this sad
situation nothing left but to kill myself
again because im so emptyback to top
Lost Control
Life has betrayed me once again,
I accept that some things will never change.
I've let your tiny minds magnify my agony,
and it's left me with a chem'cal dependency for sanity.

Yes, I am falling... how much longer till I hit the ground?
I can't tell you why I'm breaking down.
Do you wonder why I prefer to be alone?
Have I really lost control?

I'm coming to en end,
I've realised what I could have been.
I can't sleep so I take a breath and hide behind my bravest mask,
I admit I've lost control.back to top
Re-Connect
The fragments of connection died
Some things just won't fade with time
Hide behind a transparent eye
You can't see me but I can you...
Betray without a moment's thought
Regret nothing but getting caught
Your time has come and here I stand
Why should I hold out my hand to you...

I could never turn to you
Silenced by that look in your eye
Feel I'm slipping back again

Black cold night I toss and turn I'm sinking, feel so
...drained
Shroud me, blind me, sick, weak, empty, drag me
...into pain
I tried so hard, don't drown me, bound to me,
self indulgently ...crazed
Black as coal, my sunken soul, will it ever be
...saved?

Come on and twist that knife again
Well I'd like to see you fucking try
Never going back again

An answer won't come from me
Confront your own worst enemy
What does your mirror see
Is it time to face up to me?back to top
Inner Silence
When the silence beckons,
And the day draws to a close,
When the light of your life sighs,
And love dies in your eyes,
Only then will I realise,
What you mean to me.back to top
Alternative 4
It's killing you, you're killing me,
I'm clinging on to my sanity,
All I need is a short term remedy,
Come and hide me from this terrible reality...

Dreaded memories flood back to me,
But there's still a wilful mind behind these cold,
psychotic eyes,
Now I tread this path so differently,
I've opened my mind and darkened my entire life.

I'll dance with the angels to celebrate the holocaust,
And far beyond my far gone pride,
Is knowing that we'll soon be gone,
Knowing that I'll soon be gone...back to top
Regret
As I drift away... far away from you,
I feel all alone in a crowded room,
Thinking to myself
"There's no escape from this
fear
regret
loneliness..."

Visions of love and hate
A collage behind my eyes
Remnants of dying laughter
Echoes of silent cries

I wish I didn't know now that
I never knew then...
Flashback
Memories punish me again.
Sometimes I remember all the pain
that I have seen.
Sometimes I wonder what might
have been...

Visions of love and hate
A collage behind my eyes
Remnants of dying laughter
Echoes of silent cries

And sometimes I despair
At who I've become
I have to come to terms
With what I've done

The bittersweet taste of fate
We can't outrun the past
Destined to find an answer
A strength I never lost
I know there is a way,
My future is not set,
For the tide has turned
But still I never learned to live
without regret.back to top
Feel
I've feeling I may not be coming down from this,
I was searching through the heavens and somehow I slipped,

I feel, I'm seeing so clear

Trying to forget tomorrow and all that's happened,
This is not the way, the way I was meant to be.

I feel, I'm seeing so clear,
I thought I was never going to die.
I feel, I'm seeing so clear,
We need more time.

Slipping away, I think I'm gonna crack,
Misplaced trust, loyalty stabbed in the gut.

I feel, I'm seeing so clear,
I thought I was never coming back,

I've been down for awhile,
And now I'm coming back...back to top
Destiny
I tried to murder the lonely,
Contemplate our mortality.

Into infinity,
Frozen memory

Wipe the tears from yesterday,
A time for change, take the pain away.

Angel, my destiny,
Can you feel me?back to top
