Track Name: ANHEDONIA
-LYRICS-

DO YOU REMEMBER THOSE BLISSFUL DAYS?
INOCENT LAUGHS WERE OUR WALLS
NO WORRIES COULD BREAK 'EM THROUGH
EVERYTHING WAS EASY
WE USED TO SIT AND WATCH HIM GROW
THE SEED BY WHICH WE LIVED FOR

BETRAYED BY TRUST
TO FIND YOUR BETTER HALF
THE SHINE IN THE EYES OF MY CHILD
HER LAST BREATH
FEELING HELPLESS AND NUMB
HIS VOICE TAKES ME HOME
THERE IS WHERE I BELONG
AND MEANS NOTHING, NOTHING TO ME NOW

WHITE SHINING WALL
BLURS INSIDE MY HEAD
TURNS AROUND
I CAN SEE MYSELF
LYING IN A SILENT PLACE
COULD IT BE A CHILDHOOD MEMORY?

NOW I SEE IT'S REAL NOT JUST AN ILLUSION

MEANINGLESS LIFE IN ISOLATION
RAVENOUS ENVY
SOLITUDE

IT WAS LATE WHEN I REALICED THEY WERE GONE FOREVER
AND I'M LOST IN MYSELF
IT'S TOO SOON TO BE ALONE AND I'M LOOSING MY MIND
AND I'M STRAYED WITHOUT YOU


HEY BROTHER, WHY THE HELL DO YOU CARE?
HERE I AM, FROM NOW ON I'LL TAKE THE REST
LET YOURSELF GO

I LOOK, AND MY REFLECTION IS EMPTY
ONLY THE STRANGER IN ME STARES BACK, IN SHADOWS

I WILL BE KING, JUST LET ME IN

I EMBRACE THIS DEAL, WHO COULD REFUSE?
I CAN BE HIM, AS HE CAN BE ME
A THREAT TO THE I

I WAS WAITING FOR THE WORLD TO END, BUT IT NEVER ENDS
WHERE DO WE LEAVE OUR MARK?
WE WERE MENT TO BE TOGETHER, FOREVER
WE CHOOSE TO EXIST IN THE LACK OF CHOICES
SOMETIMES YOU LEARN THE HARD WAY
THERE WAS A TIME WHEN LIFE WAS SIMPLE, THEN THE STORM

BETRAYED BY TRUST
TO FIND YOUR BETTER HALF
THE SHINE IN THE EYES OF MY CHILD
HER LAST BREATH
FEELING HELPLESS AND NUMB
HIS VOICE TAKES ME HOME
THERE IS WHERE I BELONG
AND MEANS NOTHING, NOTHING TO ME NOW


BETRAYED BY TRUST
TO FIND YOUR BETTER HALF (AND THEN NOTHING)
THE SHINE IN THE EYES OF MY CHILD
HER LAST BREATH (AND THEN NOTHING)
FEELING HELPLESS AND NUMB
HIS VOICE TAKES ME HOME (AND THEN NOTHING)
THERE IS WHERE I BELONG
AND MEANS NOTHING, NOTHING TO ME NOW
Track Name: CIRCADIAN DISRUPTION
-LYRICS-

What can you see beyond the shades (of grey)?
Stare at the mirror. It's you, just you, awake!

I am not able to clearly see a path, the path of reality.
Sleepless i cannot reach those blinding lights.

Will you face the beast holding on your dreams?
Locked within. It's me, just me, asleep.

Cold sweat sliding down the spine
Trembling hands stroke my arms
The splitting sound of grinding teeth, pierces my mind again.

You cannot drive you life
I own the night.
Don't try to come this side
I own the night.
No, you can't disguise
Cause I own the night.
Don't expect an easy ride
I own, i own the night.

Where do your demons dwell, waiting to prevail?
Swallow the poison. Hear'em calling from the deepest dale.

Together we can walk as one, infinitely multiplied
Bound to a shattered realm of ache.
Undivided.

You cannot drive you life
I own the night.
Don't try to come this side
I own the night.
No, you can't disguise
Cause I own this fucking night.
Don't expect an easy ride
I own, i rule inside.
I rule inside.

Track Name: OBSOLETE (Feat. Leo Jiménez)
-LYRICS-

NO LAST SHOT, I´M INVINCIBLE
CAN´T BEAT ME, JUST TRY ME
I´LL CRUSH YOU DOWN TO THE FLOOR

MY HEART PUMPS SWEET ADRENALINE
ONE LAST CHANCE TO BLOW IT
LET THE SHOWDOWN BEGIN

“YOU´RE DEAD MEAT”, FUCK OFF CRAZY BITCH
MAN, I CAN´T BELIEVE HOW I CAME HERE
OH DAMN YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING

WALLS START TO FALL, SHADOWS GROW
HOLLOW EYES THAT DRILL TO THE BONE
COME ON, THE HUNT IS ON, PREPARE FOR MORE
IT´S ME WHO´S HEADING THE RUN
I´M HEADING THE RUN

I KNOW I´M RUNNING OUT OF TIME, DRIFTING AWAY
I´M ALWAYS DROWNING INTO JUNK
DON´T YOU DARE TO JUDGE ME
I KNOW I´M RUNNING OUT OF TIME, BITTER INMATE
I´M ALWAYS DROWNING, I WAS KING, NOW I´M OBSOLETE
I´M OBSOLETE

LIFE MAY DECAY BUT THOUGHT STILL PREVAIL
WILL BE MY HAVEN FOR TOMORROW

I KNOW I´M RUNNING OUT OF TIME, DRIFTING AWAY
I´M ALWAYS DROWNING INTO JUNK
DON´T YOU DARE TO JUDGE ME
I KNOW I´M RUNNING OUT OF TIME, BITTER INMATE
I´M ALWAYS DROWNING, I WAS KING, NOW I´M OBSOLETE
I´M OBSOLETE
Track Name: WHAT LIES BEYOND
-LYRICS-

NEVER SEEN COLORS FILL PERCEPTION
ENDLESS OCEAN OF DEAFINING WHISPERS
NOW THE RELISH OF A MILLION SCENTS,
SCRAMBLE AGAINST THE ITCH WITHIN

*DENIAL *
“I AM ALIVE IN THE PRIME OF LIFE
I OWN THE NIGHT, THIS WORLD IS MINE,
AND I DON´T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THE CONSECUENCE”

*BARGAINING *
“HOW LONG, HOW LONG I HAVE?
CAN YOU PURGE MY SINS IF I PLEDGE?
TURNING BACK MEANS IMPROVE TO ME
I USED TO DIVE IN THE RIPTIDE”

EMBRACE LIFE SEIZE TIME
ASSUME WHAT IS TO COME
TAKE A BREATH, THINK TWICE
ASSUME YOU ARE NOT ALONE

*ANGER *
“WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?
GNAW, TO GNAW YOUR BONES TO DUST”

*DEPRESSION *
“NO MORE BRIDGES TO CROSS
THERE´S NO LIFE WITHOUT REGRETS
EXISTANCE IS JUST A WORTHLESS ENDEAVOR
NEVER MIND THE CHOICE, FOR IT'S SET TO FAIL”

EMBRACE LIFE SEIZE TIME
ASSUME WHAT IS TO COME
TAKE A BREATH, THINK TWICE
ASSUME YOU ARE NOT ALONE

*ACCEPTANCE *
“TRANSITION. DEAD LINE.
WHO KNOWS WHAT LIES BEYOND?”
