Track Name: Annihilated
Step in from the brink
But only to look back
That was too easy
There is no challenge worthy
Burning the bridge I stand on

Tear up my map home
Draw a new one on my skin
The remedy is easy
When you have the right recipe

Self destruction, in its most simple form
Ruin my body from inside out
Make the pain in my mind
And in my soul

Visible on my skin
A burning, stabbing in my guts
And a sadness in you as you watch
My beautiful performance made
Especially for none and al
Track Name: Beautiful Struggle
Looking back, not ever looking in
My mistakes are for others to understand
If I made them it was on purpose
A less for you
What you desereve

Was it worth it?
The pointless struggle
Against yourself

Who are you?
Who am I even talking to?
Find yourself at the bottom of a bottle
At the end of a line
On the edge of a blade

The is revenge unto myself
You cannot be faltered

They are wrong
They are weak

And you are stray

It takes courage to destroy yourself
Mindfulness as a tool
Of annihilation

The beautiful struggle
Track Name: Starved Lives
We can last today
But we cant survive this way
Wrinkled and crumpled up
Our bodies will starve

But our mines wont give up
Always aching never breaking
For the lives we are supposed to lead
Resting every night with those

Who are now resting without peace
Circling through my mind
For something I can find
A little piece of the divine

But that’s just a sign of these desperate times
Do we accept our existence like this?
Or do we leave what we once loved behind?
You were the catalyst

But now I let you go
To drift in the universe
In perfect syncronicity, in infinite perfection
Part of everything and intrinsic to nothing

Don’t give in, because they are stronger than you
Go down fighting, they’ll remember the truth
Track Name: Synchronicity
Calling for a new beginning
Burn the verses of the past
Fight through the ash
Breathe in the embers

They are the resurrection
The fire will light once again
Inside of you
Blow out a new inferno

Nothing can withstand its energy
The cycle will continue

In beautiful and everlasting synchronicity
Enter equilibrium while remaining
At the centre of the universe
Track Name: Betrayer
Like Lucifer I grew my horns, when I rejected paradise
Damn myself to a life of thorns, then maybe i'd call it even
Not deserving of that life
Bury myself under the smog
Masochistic life of pain

My betrayer
Born with sin
Yours and his

Your god is dead
We have killed him
Just for the sake
Of our selfish thoughts

Everyone born with a sin
It's yours and his
His only son
Punish myself for existing

Create a hell around me
Torture my body
With anything I can find
Close the door behind me
Track Name: Toothgrinder
I dragged the body from road to rome
Under the floor boards its carcass resides

Lying in pieces i place you inside
I stretch an image of her on me,
I beg to see that silver light dissipate

That black sermon followed me,
I predicted the most righteous act
I stretch an image of her on me
I pray to see that silver light dissipate

Every day is all the same


It's the same


Cracked ribs, bloodied and broken
The soul will rest so all can see
We're all just begging to be free
Under the floorboards, his body it rests
His body at the rest
Track Name: Eigengrau
Don’t just the perfect life
You cant see what lies behind
The time spent to forge that strength

Beauty exists only through struggle
But mine was not
Plain to the eye
Until I painted
The perfect picture

Pull myself away from heaven
Paint everything black
Grow my horns
Make myself ugly

Paint my skin with maps
Back to the old ways
Disappear forever
Track Name: Bête Noire
Do you hate me?

Trying to find
The purpose of this lesson you have left
Searching in the dark corners of my mind
To wander forlorne, is my future
Dedicate my life to find absolution


Losing the ghost inside me

Leave me to endlessly ask
The question why
What is the point of living now
Do you hate me?
I still feel you next to me.
Track Name: Victorious, Neverending
I felt like I was the one who should fix everything
The impossible weight of my conviction
Crushing my feeble shoulders
There was nothing to be done but I struggled on

Scratching and clawing myself out of the hole
Gasping for air in the midst of the black smog
The curse of the dreamer.

The torment of hope
Its much easier to fall back with your eyes closed.

Victory is never painless
Obstruction to the path leads to the new path
Find the route to glory
You cant stray if there is no defined way

Create your own morality
Only you can judge yourself
Track Name: Release
Just because we know we exist
Doesn’t lift us from the ranks of the beasts
Fighting a constant and bitter battle
With our own, overblown egos


Pointless existence

Self awareness is an illness
This merciless curse
That both frees us from ignorance
But shackles us to the
Constant contemplation of our
Pointless existence


What is man to the ape
Man is the most primitive
He does not know his place
Man exists only as a bridge
To the ubermensch

Pointless existence
Futile efforts
To bring meaning
To this empty life
True strength
Comes from facing
The truth behind their lies

My spirit will burst the shackles on my mind
And rip through the decay of form

You are not my audience
The words of the ubermensch
I will release myself from the burden
Of this life
Track Name: Portrait
The smell of cold, scent of the rain
Always that lingering feeling
I will see you again
My dreams are like torture
Every night the same
You running away from me
Like some kind of game
Alone I am standing in a crowded place
When over in the distance, I see your face

Come back

Dreams are all we have together now
So why do you run from me?
Its getting hard to bare when im awake

In a frantic panic I slip through the swelling mass
Why must you run from me, everytime this dream so crass
You said we’d be together till the bitter end
Remember our sacred pact?
That promise you did not defend.
Track Name: Through The Trees
Beautiful shimmering light
Bursting through the trees
Beckoning me forward
Into woods I have not seen

Don’t look down, that’s way they say
But these cracks say they know me

If I'd known, I'd have been
A different person

I wouldn’t be covered in scars
Or I wouldn’t have to show them

I wouldn’t show my scars
I could move on with life

Without straying I follow on
Never looking back
My life layed out before me
As I walk between the cracks

The dark is full of wonder
As it creeps to shroud the light
But it doesn’t have the strength
To beat me as I fight

This never ending battle
Of me against myself
Live to fight another day
Or stand and face this hell

Shimmering light
