A Line of Scars

change came and rang the doorbell
charged a brick wall as I ran to answer
fresh wound in a line of scars
a ground level sight to the stars

what a painful reminder
a not so subtle suggestion
that mind barred and eyes closed
are the key and the way to

black belt in the art of failure
ass kicked by a revolving door

guess it's gonna hurt
trying to change my ways
when there's syringe full of fear
suddenly injected
straight into the spine

I was told to find another way
to get past the obstacles I have set
but in this room and on these meds
I'll either dislocate a shoulder or
spend a lifetime in a straitjacket
the party never starts without me

guess it's gonna hurt
trying to change my ways
when there's syringe full of fear
suddenly injected
straight into the spine

with terrible certainty comes painful reality
a realization of a brooding premonition
I searched for a soul but I could only find
spoiled flesh in a cage of rotten bones

guess it's gonna hurt
trying to change my ways
when there's syringe full of fear
in my spine injected

I searched for my soul
but I could only find
a statue of spoiled flesh
held upright
fear injected rigid spine

Last Mistake

Can you hear it, the sound of the rebel
turn it off, and you feel nothing
Can't stand him, the man on the mirror
My reflection just wont fade

In slow-motion, we crawl
Pain and anger, in store

I had you, around my finger
but you left me, in solitude

to the outside, I'm stone
Escape the daylight, remorse

Sometimes, when I'm all alone, I stand by the moon,
hoping my soul companion to take me home

Can you hear it, the sound of the rebel
turn it off, and you feel nothing
Cant stand him, the man on the mirror
My reflection just wont fade

Days just go by, so slow
They watch as I die, I'm torn

Sometimes, I feel I'm all alone, among these fools,
who try to be like me, and more...

I've seen it fall, I've seen it drown,
it happens there's no way around
fight for more to lose it all,
I rise again to see me fall

You can't save me, I control
Bits and pieces, of my broken soul
void surrounds me, pressure overload
life rejects me, lost my self control

I have crossed a borderline, accomplished nothing in my time,
passed the window, this lonely shadow needs a light.
I have passed the last line, caused damage with my rhymes,
crash the window, time to break out!

Doombird

Melody through the haze
Sound of wisdom,
Is it pass my... time?

Sing the final pray
It's the last one
Melody of my...life!

Can you see me?
Now I'm naked?
But on the outside
I'm just faking

I cannot take this anymore
Body is bruised, mind is torn
I'd like to pull this through
Even if it is my last move

I'm misbelieving,
I've been forgiven
I'd like to be the one
Who catches all the stars

Face your demons
Close the loose ends
Make the doombird
Fly away

Can you see me?
Now I'm naked?
But on the outside
I'm just faking

I cannot take this anymore
Body is bruised, mind is torn
I'd like to pull this through
Even if it is my last move

I'm misbelieving,
I've been forgiven
I'd like to be the one
Who catches all the stars

In time all things will decay
And everything, turns to gray

I cannot take this anymore...

Financial Sacrifice

When you crossed the line, did you look at the sign
Did you read what it said, stay off or be dead

It's coming to get you

Screwed up big time, still dont know why
From high I fall, that I recall

He's coming to fetch you

When reaching high, you can touch the sky,
No guarantees that you're alive, after the dive
Waste your life, for the first time
When the reaper knocks on your door, you don't exist any more

The machine you feed, rewards you in time
But when does your greed, becomes a crime

Got to have I all

Humanity, means nothing to thief
Who takes it all, from the poor

Let the losers fall

When reaching high, you can touch the sky,
No guarantees that you're alive, after the dive
Waste your life, for the second time
When the reaper knocks on your door, you don't exist any more

So fast you got so high, now go and say goodbye
Money that was your pride, has now gone to the sky
You never though you will, dwell in the pool of filth
No turning back this time, when you have sacrificed your life

When reaching high, you can touch the sky,
No guarantees that you're alive, after the dive
Waste your life, for the last time
When the reaper knocks on your door, you don't exist any more
you don't exist any more, everything is gone

Hearts, hopes and silver threads

Just gimme one good reason
Why I would tear down my prison

god poured her fire unto this wine
turned earthly liquor into a vintage divine
spirit tainted by the brothers in brew
stronger in numbers, the filthy few

Just gimme one good reason
Why I would tear down my prison

thoughts of crystal skies vanish in thick air
memories gone as they never were
true ordeal waits amidst the first rays of dawn
bright morning in stench of death

I have become my own worst nightmare
drunken bastard, destroyer of worlds
I sever silver threads in dozens
and swallow hearts and hope by gallons

How do I wake up, as I know I've died?
Where's my god, where's my king
Where's his prime?

I have become my own worst nightmare
drunken bastard, destroyer of worlds
I sever silver threads in dozens
and swallow hearts and hope by gallons

the one who captivates, gone
the one who consolidates, gone
the one who destroys, who wants to know?
