Trees 07:34
Here comes the time for a lie down It's too sticky to toil this way I haven't slept many nights but now, but now a noise from aside Enough! Bending my bones, that I've ground not for my own well Don't you dare, I grant you the wisdom you won't take away, oh, what a shame Mr. Dunce is not embracing, what a shame, even though he just had to listen Oh, it's not a fairytale for you with many scars ahead Oh, what a great shame, the generation fades out… …completely fades into obscurity and you, you and who are you to… And who are you to make the eternity end? And could it even end at all? You think of doing nothing, you're the devil-may-cry morons not worth a fight You're one eye blind hypocrites but if everything comes off, you grow out of it all There there, you're all There there, you're all alone There there, you all are… …degrading unknown will, unwilling common sense and sensing the need, denying what comes But you can’t resist all For an obvious reason that he's an odd man, that he's an oak man, well that he's a tree man And nothing like the shame of nothing And nothing like the shame of nothing to say
Figment 03:57
Illusions, very little things to believe in Mirrors so bright, they won't let you out, let you out, let you out A vision of the answer I still reject I cover my life with comparisons Many pieces of advice flowing down the drain I admit, I refuse, I complain, I am rude Distorted lights surround naked wives Tickling my eyes while my hands are tied Oh no, hold on! Acquired ideals, sparks of philosophy Plants that I have harvested too soon Still I see its face running away The pleasure of a devious bait No matter what I see, no matter what I hear and feel I try to grab everything indeed and run out of reasons to get mad 'cause this is just a figment of my mind
Intense 05:40
She fought a sleep of no peace but no one should have waken her She was so tired of her own dreams and no one could gather her strength The flickering was so real, it was outlining its shades And the shapes're billowing inside her eyelids, the pictures they comprise are incredible The red light enforces a little smile, a subtle smile, for a little while, until the sunbeam passes by, just for a little while She roused and let her eyes shut, the scenery was tucked away And everything indicated it won't be back again But she is of the opposite opinion and she is holding her ground And she is sure that her imagination can stop the rest of the world (hey) These pictures are painted by steady hands (hey) These pictures are painted by steady hands (hey) The pictures are painted by steady hands (hey) One hand is led by the other hand
I wanna realize I want to realize, tell me the secret, tell me what's your story What makes you hungry, shall I be even worried now? How come that I never get it? How come that I never win? How come that I always wonder why it's me to kneel? Down by the drain my very own thoughts have disappeared And you are the one who stands by the wheel When did you come here, what was the first sight? I can’t recall the very first deal The pills that I swallow cut like a blade Ruby cold bubbles down the well You choke, break, skin, burn, peel, drill, you know how to treat Am I your prisoner, a doll for your please or a doubt for what shall be real? Let me out I wanna realize
Stateshift 07:13
If it were fully up to me, I wouldn't talk to them at all This is my time, I have earned it all Damn freaks on their crusade against the world But I'm not quite the kind of man who wants to beg 'em to retain, yeah And I'm not giving 'em anything anyway Still I think there's much more to lose I think there's much more… to lose She didn't get it up to now There's never been soil for compassion for those with inclination of being down With their infection – the lack of ambition, it's killing them now I've seen that fall I know that she's been a part of something A thing we haven't lost so far But no one of her sort belongs there, in fact they know that They are selling their hate, the clearance day's today And every day's today, no tomorrow, no pain They are flipping the dime to survive the night All the lights are already dimmed Yet! Is anyone ordering? Is anyone ordering? Is anyone ordering anything? Hallo! Is anyone ordering anything - Her halo? They keep telling the rest it's been a bummer left upon their heads So please don't think about them, Their deaths and lives are none of our business To lay the blame on someone, to lay the blame on them, to lay the blame on someone who will disappear with them Who's gonna take charge, who's gonna bear the lack It's not a matter of concern, my friend The rest doesn't want to meet them and alone talk to them, the rest has its own way She won't deal with it and she's brainsick of it, her destiny is unfair (so unfair) She started running to somebody, a passer-by, a random guy, who pretends he didn't see her Maybe if only 'cause he really didn't see her, he could not except that I've seen the heavy landing fall I shouted to stop it I saw the picture of a hovering corpse Then the wind stole my words Don't blame me now, dear Don't blame me now It's all your fault
One step aside while holding my breath You almost felt that My certainty ran into a gap The ripples are growing into waves The oddities want me to play They know there's nothing to await, we know there's nothing to await hollow hole hollow hole hollow hole hollow hole There's nothing I should moan for They say I was deaf but I'm not sure I was Even I could hear the echo, it collided 'cause I collapsed the sound I left myself in the shell of itself Why the hell they thought that I was hiding them? I know they are looking for the tight hole, kneeling on the lawn of the shaking old man They don't belong there We need the man to hold 'em from what they are He was sick of it all then Nowadays he can turn 'em off wasting their time They don't need the old man to stand in their way to me and to rise in arms So this could be the last of the eleven shivers My skin is getting natural, my beard and hair are turning brown No longer I am a fossil, my lungs are freed from blood I blinked my eye, it was easier than before Now I can breathe out and gather'em back to the hole make'em wait more
