Spring 02:48
When was the last time the wind blew so hard And what was left behind ? Maybe there’ll be another spring Sometimes you lose yourself In this noisy crowd Stop running and take your time Look around you Gaze at all the beauty You can’t make your life up You’d take the risk to miss out on it Fear fuels the best of yourself Fear fuels the worst of your obstacles Fail try retry don’t give up This is a learning process Don’t live as a reflection of yourself Stop reckoning Just exist Sometimes you lose yourself In this noisy crowd Stop running and take your time Look around you Gaze at all the beauty You can’t make your life up You’d take the risk to miss out on it

Once Again 03:28
Once again more lessons learned I wished to believe what I saw I should rather snatch my eyes I gave and did my best Believing in another story I learned nothing’s free Is the risk to big ? Slowly the last sunshine is dying I grit my teeth waiting for a new birth I know that will never happen Another lesson learned I’d rape my dignity For a glimmer of hope This is my crime I swapped my wellness for violence All doors are aready smashed But there is no end in the collapse I could find dozens of reasons to put myself down I know too well the taste of the soil I’m afraid I won’t get the taste of life back I don’t wan’t to wander slowly Like a sad dummy And I always repeat to myself Go ahead before exhaustion overtakes you I grit my teeth But this is my crime

Cliffhanger 03:05
Your words removed the veil from this years, and took me down Blindfolded, I led myself to this crash Life's sometimes tricky Where you could see the horizon, you finally end down the trail There's no easy paths Sometimes it's up to you, sometimes a hand is lent When things seem hard, doesn't mean it's bad The further you go, the stronger you become Every teaching has its price, look ahead Face your life, embrace your pain Time is the best remedy When you feel down Where you could see the horizon You finally end down the trail Sometimes it's up to you Sometimes a hand is lent

Tears are evaporating And giving way to ashes We’re all the unwanted kids Crucified for the glory of a way of life I remember the day when life lost its meaning My eyes are being washed out By the time passing by When smiles became scars There is no turning back Behind the weak shield of love There is the same inner hurting Our life is the sticky product of social determinism Then what do you think ? Once the judgement wave has passed What does remain ? I hate my world I hate myself Result of my lack of bravery And I walk, I walk With our feet we draw the path of perdition

Rumble 03:03
Walking on the edge Always on borderlines Should I jump or not, should I just sit and watch Always wandering, always wondering, my brain never stops I'm just asking for some peace A deep sleep, no more thoughts I'd like to breath, to lay down on the floor To feel the cold of the tiles, on my neck And loosen my hands I must cross the edge Answers won't fall from the sky Life won't write by itself I have to look straight ahead To forget my fears

Deserter 02:06
Sitting in the room Staring at the window Lit by the sun I’m just able to see the sky, the clouds and the highest trees I’m one of those who live eyes closed On what’s happening outside Yes i’m scared But not by the truth I don’t want to miss anything close The little things making me feeling whole I love the warmth of the sun rising on my skin I won’t step up I won’t look out through the window I have no time I can hear the clock behind me recalling me nothing lasts I’m sorry to be selfish I’m not the hero you’re waiting for
7.
Doormat 03:26
Knocked out, deceived by my rules A beacon, among the doormats Trampled, crushed, again and again More and more, again and again Be kind They’ll wipe their feet on your face Be kind A handkerchief is that all I am A choice To play the tough guy A choice When you’re cheating on yourself You will not bend me Nor your will You will not bend me Nor your deeds Walk on me you won’t hurt me No need to hide I’m not a wuss, not a wimp No need to hide My will is stronger than yours Crushed, each time a new birth My light won’t die I’m glad to be this one My light won’t die The shade’s one

Interlude 04:01

The Priest 02:12
Head Down, I crashed myself into your obstacles Love's about being able to endure the distress of past lives This is not my fight anyway I'm a dam to your ocean of despair How emptiness could be so heavy In front of us there is a cloudy sky, overloaded with tears My defeat is yours and your curse is mine The only things to share Sometimes I dream about being a kid again Finding a place where I'm sheltered from people weaknesses Day after day, my faith in you is crumbling I was in a blind constancy It's yout only present A nasty present Your the priest I'm the disillusioned child Time is like barricades against your faith Maybe you too don't believe in your own words, anymore Your sadness is my distance with love
10.
Where is your right path Your holy words are tarnished By the leeway of injuries No more promises illusions are fossilized Love and faith are replaced by guilt We’re dragging our resentments Across the floor I see the indelible trace Marked by tears My beliefs are built and cemented by shame Motionless we’re still gnawing by the faults The sky rumbles I’m too broken to find Another dummy shelter Behind my eyes there’s an old man In your eyes there’s an angry kid Too young for this shit My bones are cracked By the harassment My back has borne the weight of sins for too long I dragged my expectations My heart is full of despair Time doesn’t kill those are the faults of the world I would snatch out of my head all this memories Even if I lost everything including myself

Troth 04:47
I made the bet To put sense around me Keep calm Don’t react to apace Don’t fall into a rage and burn myself Accept my condition and others’ impacts in my life The gift won’t come from the past Go ahead let down the anguish Surely I won’t do it alone This is where difficulty begins If I wish to live with my own self I must accept the whole burden There will be no clean breaks But this is the price to keep my head up I made the bet To pick the best out of everyone And accept my best The good side of myself The only way to bear the whole burden There will be no clean breaks To be ready for love Justice is here
