all Edge Of Sanity lyrics



Hell Is Where The Heart Is
In the strangest world of formlessness
I am reaching out to expand my mind
No more echoes and reflections
The future is now
I am the first in line

Because I am alone
Here with my fantasies
Inside my cocoon
A self-constructed galaxy

And hell is where the heart is
But I'll never understand
The fact that I am
And hell is where the heart is
I have lost the concept of life
Is there another to find

Gotta ticket with
a microsynthetic design
For chemical dreams
To fill up the dead spot
In the bottom of my eyes
and welcome the big sleep

Injected with silence
Fading in a sleepy confusion
A beautyful entrance
Into a higher dimension

I was about to explore
The Exit
The Door
Out of my labyrinth
A mind-detonation
the easy solution
Out of my labyrinth

Between midnight and twilight
I leave my shell
To enter the dream-light
The final farewell

In the strangest world of formlessness
I am reaching out to expand my mind
No more echoes and reflections
The future is now
I am the first in line

Because I am alone
Here with my fantasies
Inside my cocoon
A self-constructed galaxy

And hell is where the heart is
But I'll never understand
The fact that I am
And hell is where the heart is
I have lost the concept of life
Is there another to find

And hell is where the heart is
But I'll never understand
The fact that I am
And hell is where the heart is
I have lost the concept of life
Is there another to find

Between midnight and twilight
I leave my shell
To enter the dream-light
The final farewell

Helter Skelter
Awakening
All victims gathered
One happy family
"I am your father"
"I am your friend"
"And you are my children and shall be to the end"
On the verge of insanity
Manipulated
Blind they follow his every command
Stimulated love of a madman never ever rusts

Go now my children
There is work to be done
The pigs must be slaughtered
Our battle's begun
Leave them a message that they never seen
Helter Skelter
Anarchy Supreme

Washing her hands from the blood she has spiled
Stabbing her to death for the father
Through the hands of his children he murdered them all
Without ever lifting his finger
No powers are needed when leading the blind
But powers are needed to kill
A mastermind with intentions for chaos
Carnage
He murdered through will

Go now my children
There is work to be done
The pigs must be slaughtered
Our battle's begun
Leave them a message that they never seen
Helter Skelter
Anarchy Supreme

No powers are needed when leading the blind
But powers are needed to kill
A mastermind with intentions for chaos
Carnage
He murdered through will
On the verge of insanity
Manipulated
Blind they follow his every command
Stimulated love of a madman never ever rusts
Never ever rusts

Peace
Love
Murder

15:36
Let me invite you to my netherworld
I'll show you sights you're never seen
You still my hunger
You're an easy prey
Your flesh is ripe
Your mind is weak

And dark is the path where I'll be you guide
And there is no turning back
Don't you try to run
Bacause you're in my grip
And your soul now fades to black

I am the one who will leave you behind
when I have used all of your mind
I am your incarnated fear
I have no soul
I am cold in my heart
I will always haunt you down
Where you're dead you'll dream of me

Let me invite you to the other side
Feel the presense of the dark
You scream and cry as I show you my world
Then I crawl into your mind

I am the dream you have when you're all alone
I am everything you fear
I am the one who'll make you loose your mind
As the end draws near

I am the one who will leave you behind
when I have used all of your mind
I am your incarnated fear
I have no soul
I am cold in my heart
I will always haunt you down
Where you're dead you'll dream of me

And now... your time has come
Let me have your fading soul
Restless eyes watching you
I am crawling all around you
Face the darkness in my touch

I am the one who will leave you behind
when I have used all of your mind
I am your incarnated fear
I have no soul
I am cold in my heart
I will always haunt you down
Where you're dead you'll dream of me

The Bleakness Of It All
Sunrise burning holes in this dead earth
No chance to live
No chance to rebirth
The rain shall fall as the sun still burn
Uncoloured rainbow
Grey

Stay your soul
Lead astray
The inferno will not end this way
Burning black
Stars will crack
The world you know will change
Today

Running waters
The boiling rivers of desert lands
World lies slaughtered
This earth chose its own suicide
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Our weakness made us fall
It wasn't even our call
Do you see the bleakness of it all
The bleakness of it all

Strangulation
The death of a planet
When the world chokes itself we will die with it
There is no escape from total extermination
Nail by nail
Grind them it
Your coffin closed
The air grows thin
Useless fight
Got no chance
When sikness rages
It's sure to win

Running waters
The boiling rivers of desert lands
World lies slaughtered
This earth chose its own suicide
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Our weakness made us fall
It wasn't even our call
Do you see the bleakness of it all
The bleakness of it all

Running waters
The boiling rivers of desert lands
World lies slaughtered
This earth chose its own suicide
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Our weakness made us fall
It wasn't even our call
Do you see the bleakness of it all
The bleakness of it all

The bleakness of it all
The bleakness of it all
The bleakness of it all
The bleakness of it all
The bleakness of it all
The bleakness of it all

Damned (By The Damned)
Deathdefying son of god
Twice you died in vain
No stronger than mortal
That made you re-live your pain
And as the crown grows tighter around your head
You will die for our sins
As your own blood stings your eyes
Do you think you will ever win

Your grace shines through the peeling pain
and that will be you death
Damned by the damned
And cursed by the cursed
Deliver the kiss of poisoned breath

Infernal chanting forever after
Undying echoes of devils laughter
Self-chosen leader
You will die by your ownn hand
Cursed by the cursed
Damned by the damned
You'll be dethroned from your father
No longer god's son
Forever to be condemned
Forever banned you will be
Cursed by the cursed
Damned by the damned

Unblessed you wander with no help for your god
Unwanted in heaven
Unwanted below
So was it worth it
All the pain you suffered for your king
You sacrified your life to the righteous one
but the god of all good now denies all knowledge
on his only son
The denial
The denial of you yeah
The denial of you yeah

Infernal chanting forever after
Undying echoes of devils laughter
Self-chosen leader
You will die by your ownn hand
Cursed by the cursed
Damned by the damned
You'll be dethroned from your father
No longer god's son
Forever to be condemned
Forever banned you will be
Cursed by the cursed
Damned by the damned

(Damned by the damned by the...)
Baptised in poisoned waters
(Cursed by the cursed by the...)
Lambs leading lambs to the slaughter

Infernal chanting forever after
Undying echoes of devils laughter
Self-chosen leader
You will die by your ownn hand
Cursed by the cursed
Damned by the damned
You'll be dethroned from your father
No longer god's son
Forever to be condemned
Forever banned you will be
Cursed by the cursed
Damned by the damned

Damned by the damned
Damned by the damned
Damned by the damned
Damned by the damned

Forever Together Forever
Leaving the grind the mirror behind
Losing right then and there
Whisper it was someone else and not me
How wish I could

I keep the secret within deep inside
Grasping without reaching anything
I am alone here to seek for the truth
and your dead stare is burning me weak

I am a ghost
Dwelling inside myself

Please forgive me if you're able
I do not know what I do
The inner autumn shrouds everything
The ethereal rain that drown my soul

I am a ghost
Dwelling inside myself
I can not bare this anymore
As I am you

Together Forever
In a masquarade of life and death
Together Forever
The vision reached me from a dream
Together Forever
Everlasting scars, Soul torture
Forever Together Forever

Impossible to leave this world
Unwilling to reveal the true face
Although I reckon this path is the only
And it is true that I can't resist

The soil has turned into stone
As I turn around and face myself
So close to the end
Unable to hear
The synchronised heartbeats of my dearest

Together Forever
In a masquarade of life and death
Together Forever
The vision reached me from a dream
Together Forever
Everlasting scars, Soul torture
Forever Together Forever

The moon didn't shine that night
Clouds gave way to the blackest sky
the spoken words translated into silence
and noone was to blame but me

Leaving the grind the mirror behind
Losing right then and there
Whisper it was someone else and not me
How wish I could

I am a ghost
Dwelling inside myself

Together Forever
In a masquarade of life and death
Together Forever
The vision reached me from a dream
Together Forever
Everlasting scars, Soul torture
Forever Together Forever

Losing Myself
Losing time
counting hours
I'll never see myself again
And even though I'm alone
I can't remember what I'm missing
So I leave it be

Closing down
I expect the hopelessness
And even though I'm alone
I can't remember what I'm missing
and that's all I need

I am lost
I feel I am sinking now
like I was made of rain
Like a wave I roll into the endless night

I am not afraid
as the darkness starts
to make its way
I breathe as hard as you
as I end my day
I sigh and shelter
as I try to sink that deep
as deepas you and make sure
that I won't fall asleep

Losing days
I need no hours
I'll never be myself again
And even though it's killing me
I can't remember what I'm missing
So I leave it be

I'm closing down
I expect the hopelessness again tonight
And even though it's killing me
I can't remember what I'm missing
But it might be you

I am lost
I feel I am sinking now
like I was made of rain
Like a wave I roll into the endless night

I am not afraid
as the darkness starts
to make its way
I breathe as hard as you
as I end my day
I sigh and shelter
as I try to sink that deep
as deepas you and make sure
that I won't fall asleep

That I won't fall asleep

I am not afraid
as the darkness starts
to make its way
I breathe as hard as you
as I end my day
I sigh and shelter
as I try to sink that deep
as deepas you and make sure
that I won't fall asleep

Hollow
Depression ain't the reason why everything turns grey
When my mind's been drained through the stream of frozen minds
The hollow one
And thousands have walked this narrow way
But I'm not that kind of man
I wanna stay in my old me
Not leave this peaceful space

But every step brings me further and further away
Away from the man I used to be
I'm hollow
I'm cleaned
All fantasies erased from the sleepless dreams
I'm empty
I'm blank
Lost in an ocean where my soul's been sunked

Confusion greets me when I awake
I'm feeling restless inside
Not even raised from bed I wanna scream it all up
My artifical joy
From a mouth not mine
My hands are shaking of rage
Soon the last peace of me is gone
And nothing in my world
Can stop the hate inside from growing strong

I'm hollow
I'm cleaned
All fantasies erased from the sleepless dreams
I'm empty
I'm blank
Lost in an ocean where my soul's been sunked

What I not know
I am not alone
They are all around
The hollow ones
all erased inside
I ain't here no more

Depression ain't the reason why everything turns grey
When my mind's been drained through the stream of frozen minds
The hollow one
And thousands have walked this narrow way
But I'm not that kind of man
I wanna stay in my old me
Not leave this peaceful space

But every step brings me further and further away
Away from the man I used to be
I'm hollow
I'm cleaned
All fantasies erased from the sleepless dreams
I'm empty
I'm blank
Lost in an ocean where my soul's been sunked

Inferno
Inserted soul denied
No choice but staying alive
Left hand path laughter
The grin strengths up my heartbeat
So where am I to turn
Here where the daylight burns
I'm left for living path
I've been denied the right to die

I feed of sickening
Your pain unpuzzle the inferno
I am the labyrinth
My shadow brings you to your death

I'm placed to walk this earth
I'm sent to stop your birth
Stillborn miscarriage
I'm the reason
I'm to blame
I spread my blackened wings
Our city's doomed in war
Death is my employer
Abdomination non-divine

I feed of sickening
Your pain unpuzzle the inferno
I am the labyrinth
My shadow brings you to your death

So if you see me lock away
Or never again you will see the light of day
The bringer of torture
The bringer of pain
never to die
but always bloodstained
Bloodstained

This earth I walk alone
Trapped in the twilight zone
Murder and sickness
Like the hunter, hunting for no pray
I spread my blackened wings
Our city's doomed in war
Death is my employer
Abdomination non-divine

I feed of sickening
Your pain unpuzzle the inferno
I am the labyrinth
My shadow brings you to your death

I feed of sickening
Your pain unpuzzle the inferno
I am the labyrinth
My shadow brings you to your death

Burn The Sun
So what is life
Don't we all dream of dying or when to die
Mesmerized we try to find the answers we rather keep inside
Se what are we on our knees and image of all that used to be
Straight forward death campaign
Let's go where the dreams shall always reign

So what is death
No need to die
It's a power we can deny
Leving dead a way of life
:aid to rest is this a lie
Forever turned backwards
Break the circle
Hypnoticed
Insanity
Universal
Invert the starsign in the sky

Hang on
Our jorney's begun
Survival means failure under this black burning sun
Be strong your walk has been long
But these wings of fire will cary you on

Hang on
Our jorney's begun
Survival means failure under this black burning sun
Be strong your walk has been long
But these wings of fire will cary you on

Murder one
Race is run
Killing spree is life undone
Are you dead before you live
Do you have to take before you give
Day of time yet to come
Your clock is ticking by your dream-drum left for dead
Left to life
Will you overcome the circle strife

The skeletons in your closed world
awaits the angel of a world that burns
The dream begins
No need to repent your living sins
Nevergood
Nevermore
You're free to hate the ones before
Wordly devastation is nothing compared to altered mind

Hang on
Our jorney's begun
Survival means failure under this black burning sun
Be strong your walk has been long
But these wings of fire will cary you on

Hang on
Our jorney's begun
Survival means failure under this black burning sun
Be strong your walk has been long
But these wings of fire will cary you on

Burn
Burn
Burn
Burn

Hang on
Our jorney's begun
Survival means failure under this black burning sun
Be strong your walk has been long
But these wings of fire will cary you on

Hang on
Our jorney's begun
Survival means failure under this black burning sun
Be strong your walk has been long
But these wings of fire will cary you on

The Last Song
An empty paper in front of me
and the pen that is supposed to be
The link between my thought and the written word

I always believed that I
coould write about anything
But I am always wrong somehow

Wrong somehow
And I can't find a way
To release the poetry I hide
In the closed deep inside

And why do you hear these words
When I have nothing to say
I am only trying to complete this song

So you can see
See that I don't know
That I don't know the way to find these words
I'm given time
Time to find a rhyme
But all I do is write these empty lines
Though I wish that I could
