Track Name: Bound Of Emotions
You held my hand, abetter in my lonely games
Sanity was your fierce aggressor, anger your wings
Have you ever realized where the tears go by?
That I've always been there, in the shadows, by your side

An acute manner for an acute self-destructive kind
There's no six degrees of separation
Rebirth

Falling from grace, you and I
I can't give up tonight
Things will never be the same again
Until we embrace this denial

Have you ever wondered why this fire burns?
Run away from the paper tigers, the empty side of the bed
We'll lay together in this coral prison
And I'll finally be the owner of my emotions
Withered away

An acute manner for an acute self-destructive kind
There's no six degrees of separation
Rebirth

Falling from grace, you and I
I can't give up tonight
Things will never be the same again
Until we embrace this denial

Adapt to overcome
Track Name: This Ain't Real Anymore
You mean nothing, fucking whore

Ripe and bleed for once in your lifetime
We're all alone at the frontlines
Salt statue, attacked and raped by 10 tons of water
The bloom of grief
Aftermath of just one night of what you brought me
The end of all goodbyes we give, goodbyes recieved
Those that make us feel alive

This ain't real, let it go
It won't reach another day
I don't feel the same anymore
How hard I tried but I just can't stand the way it ends
Anymore

We're trapped into a bloody snow globe crashed against the ground
Set this world afire, watch me rise through dissonance
'Cause I never asked for anything impossible

This ain't real, let it go
It won't reach another day
I don't feel the same anymore
How hard I tried but I just can't stand the way it ends
Anymore

Realism is the killer, your silence is witness
So bring back my voice

Stop pretending, it's over
Just be brave and say "I'm sorry"
Stop pretending, it's over
Be brave enough to face it up today

This ain't real, let it go
It won't reach another day
I don't feel the same anymore
How hard I tried but I just can't stand the way it ends
Anymore
Track Name: Vanishing
You attracted fireflies to your jaws, hiding yourself behind the masquerade
As an illusionist, its brightness burns your retinas
With the fulgore of a thousand suns

Poetic justice in an eternal prose world
Scratching the box that confines you, counting the splinters as victories
When you throw light into darness, expose yourself to knowledge
Pain is part of the revelation and it crawls through you

Take the consequence, catastrophic, weakening
Look into my eyes, you're the anchor through this flood

She's never asking for a second chance to grow up
Their sickness, spread upon the shores I used to love, so far away
Drag the past for those that choose to walk alone

A distant rumour, takes me away from the numbness
Death melts with desire in an infinite embrace
When you try to touch your image it distorts the face you want to discover as yours
You only can preserve what can't console you
Die as a riddle

Take the consequence, catastrophic, weakening
Look into my eyes, you're the anchor through this flood

She's never asking for a second chance to grow up
Their sickness, spread upon the shores I used to love, so far away
Drag the past for those that choose to walk alone

To justify my means I'll bury your ends
Reignite and back to the start line
To justify my means I'll bury your ends
Reignite and back to the state of Sysyphus
Roll back down

She's never asking for a second chance to grow up
Their sickness, spread upon the shores I used to love, so far away
Roll back down
Track Name: Struggle Of One
These wounds, wide open now just to make believe
That there is no more hope I can take

This could be my last chance to come clean and wash away
Running fast and rearranging
Everything falls apart and I don't know what is right
Inside of us

So long, I have to go
Take me far from what I have become

Unified then divided, disappeared for awhile
Then returned with a brand new name, a mask of guilt
I hide myself among these lines so I won't fall back in your lies
Myself is the only thing I've got to hold onto

So long, I have to go
Take me far from what I have become

I'm forcing me down to accept this new direction
Towards the river that erodes our past
Beginning furious and lonely conversations
Denying any reminiscence of us

So long, I have to go
Take me far from what I have become
So long, I'll breathe again, I'll make you hurt
I will leave you all behind, as moths to your flame

This was my last time walking on your shoes
For what is worth
Track Name: The Last Scene
And I can hear your voice, rumbling and filled up with black smoke
You sound so desperate and alone

How can I win if we gave up already?
Just scratch the surface, transparent, cold and cruel
Feed me now, overflow me, pacify this starvation

It's alright now, you don't have to lie
You cannot see me, you don't want to see
That in the rutine you shed out of control
But you belong to the distant

'Cause from here there's nothing as it was before
The final act is now in vain
The familiar smell from the ashes of your home
Enslaves you

All the things I left behind keep resounding in my mind
Beyond the umbilical residue amplify that desire
To set us free

It's alright now, you don't have to lie
You cannot see me, you don't want to see
That in the rutine you shed out of control
But you belong to the distant

'Cause from here there's nothing as it was before
The final act is now in vain
The familiar smell from the ashes of your home
Enslaves you

Fly in spirals while the defeaning wind makes love to you
The ones you raised are not your sons
They torture you, so open your eyes

Like the lightning to the splintered tree
I take the ravaging dampness on my face
And i learn that fear can live into a handful of dust

'Cause from here there's nothing as it was before
The final act is now in vain
The familiar smell from the ashes of your home
Enslaves you
Track Name: Descent
Hurt me now, disappoint me with your best smile

Our foundations seem too fragile
This shade of pale forks in purity
Ephemeral signs for the faithful
In a spiral iris
With the sweetest kiss I die

Ablaze within
I'm forgiving you

Suddenly, all the words run down
I chained myself to live, to hide
That now there's nothing between us
Excepting the need to not be alone
Our truth bleeds on a darkened sky

Ablaze within
I'm forgiving you
Dive through the discontent once again
Idle hands bringing false hopes
From the void of my soul I believed in you
And now I'm on my own

Breathing, blinking, doesn't mean that I am alive
Leaving the descent to reach the sun

Ablaze within
I'm forgiving you
Dive through the discontent once again
Idle hands bringing false hopes
From the void of my soul I believed in you
And now I'm on my own
Track Name: Serenity
In lies I look for shelter, to catch my breath again
'Cause the rain dies before touching the ground
That ship wrecked long time ago

Waiting for a change
So what if it destroys us in the end?
Profane, naive, obssesive
We all get murdered by the lack of perspective and the tirany of pride
Whispers consume the air and soon this will be over
Captive, sullen and isolated in night's voracity

I will find a place for tomorrow
To kill all the reasons you have

You left the faint dawn as a ghost
That now only reflects timidly in the rearviewmirror
Because you're running away from it
The kaleidoscope gives birth a fragmented reality
You have nothing, just yearning, on your knees
With the head cutted off by the horizon
Soil devours your spirit and you won't be able to unearth it
Because you don't know where to look 'cause you don't even know what you've lost

I will find a place for tomorrow
To kill all the reasons you have
All hope is gone
You praise progress but you dream no more

And so my life has moved on without me

There's no great apocalypse, just an endless march
Of little personal annihilations made for each one of us
We build our homes with grey walls, giving us refuge and strength
Walls divide us, walls define us
The ones to fear the most, the ones we believe in

I will find a place for tomorrow
To kill all the reasons you have
All hope is gone
You praise progress but you dream no more
Now that serenity is back
