BONES AND FLOWERS

Get on my way, Iʼm not leading anyone
Yes you can stay, cause all youʼve got is what Iʼve lost
I’m walking through miles of dust
And my tongue is full of rust
You bring the water, you bring the smile
Then I can go on for miles and miles
Yes, close my eyes as I drown into the water
Yes, amongst the bones, grow the flowers
You hear my prayers, youʼre on my side
Youʼll find me a way to seek the light
When things are turning cold, when everything has gone
You put a bit of shine and itʼll be fine
Something low, something lost
But I wanna try to love again
Something broke, something bored
But I wanna put a little exciting on it
Iʼm walking through the desert
With hellhound on my trails
But youʼre pushing me faster
The mirage is in my head
The heat is beating me down
Down harder on me
But Iʼm climbing to the sun
Iʼm gonna win the race
The ground seems to stretch
Forever
Iʼm reaching out to the sun
Iʼm pushing the ladder away




ACID RAIN

here we go again, time to put it on eleven
never a complain cause we know this ainʼt heaven
playing and digging, never gonna stop
true sincerity, looking at the clock
the song remains the same, the same old story
we are not insane so donʼt be so sorry
we donʼt need no cure, we donʼt give a damned
thereʼs one thing you know, it is just the game
" wait for acid rain
7 weeks of faith, 7 weeks of sound
try to let the sun come into the ground
let the dead walk with the sun on their faces
let the dead play with a hand full of aces
one last prayer to the electric god
one last glance to the counterfeit squad
we donʼt feel no shame, we just feel so right
need another shake, need another ride
" wait for acid rain
end that sleeping day
and start another one
inhale the haze
the acid rain is taking over




CARNIVORA

canʼt you see that your world is gone?
in the trap we donʼt take you on
the higher youʼll get the harder youʼll fall
in a constant pressure, violent and real
you donʼt even hint whatʼs the real deal
like mice in a lab we shiver (and squeal)
you cannot run or hide
cause the sick tigers wonʼt let you go
your face is drawn of waiting till dawn
when theyʼll snap fingers, weʼll get on the board
there is no issue but scar tissue
ask no question, donʼt draw the attention
cry in silent, closed session
and pray for your neighbourʼs turn
you cannot run or hide
cause the sick tigers wonʼt let you go
now you see your world is gone
no one will take you on
because
carnivora tear flesh harder than expected




GHOSTS ON THE SEASIDE ROAD

I met a man on the seaside crying
had lost his daughter, he himself was dying
I heard the sound of his soul rising
whispered by wind on the seaside walk
then a girl made me stop in
a lost house close to the seaside walk
she took my hand and started talking
I couldnʼt answer she was blinding
I drove all night with my ears listening
for the sound of waves on the beach crashing
the moutains could ever be crumbling
into the seas that I would be denying what I saw
I tried to leave, I would have been flying
Cause beyond the seas the sky is falling
But I’m doomed to roam in the mist
Where only ghosts live




DIARY -DAY 7 –

Iʼm the fallen, Iʼm down
Iʼm hiding in the crowd
just two faded eyes trying to get back to life and shine
feeling that the only way to stop the pain is
tearing your entrails out and watching them throbbing
your god is dead, has he ever, never, existed?
do you know how deep I went?
to the center to the core, to the deepest place I found
from the deep purple I moved to the infinite black
that is not a dream, not a different me
it fits perfectly like bombs fit with ruins
Iʼve gone so far, Iʼve seen the inmost depths
now letʼs reach to the surface and start again
fallen from heaven
down to hell
Iʼm hiding in the crowd
Iʼm crawling on the ground
on the seventh day, the day I tried to break away
when did something go wrong?
when did the child get lost?
faith is false and god is not enough
the crown of thorns is piercing your head
like remembrances are piercing your life
faith is past and past is an illusion
a slavery condition
my slavery condition
fallen from heaven
down to hell
Iʼm hiding in the crowd
Iʼm crawling on the ground
on the seventh day, the day I tried to break away




YEAR ZERO

point zero year zero
put all that down and have a break
all those wasted years fighting with myself
hinting me I was the worst then told me I was the best
but Iʼm just in the middle
but Iʼm just in the middle
I wonʼt make the same mistakes, please, please me
it is stuck in my throat
so many years of roaming through life
to find a sense to frustration and hate
now I wanna peace and I wanna rest
cause Iʼm just in the middle
I wanna rest
yes Iʼm just in the middle
hereʼs my defeat and my victory
cause the things donʼt happen like they should
but youʼre brought to think they would
brought to stand when the walls tighthen
point zero year zero
put all that down and have a break




YOUʼRE SO SPECIAL

thereʼs nothing in your life so special
youʼre getting fed up with everything
and if youʼve got no conversation
Iʼm truely not feeling guilty
youʼve got all to have all to show
neglected what is so raw
you seem so cool in the pictures on the walls
seems so true just like perfect mirrors
I donʼt believe weʼre so close
youʼre talking of things you donʼt know
you wanna remove the king from the throne
but buddy thereʼs no king at all
self importance and fine fitted clothes
self portait you know how to show
how to judge how to talk how to fit in the crowd
you talk too loud and i donʼt really like the sound
youʼve got all to have all to show
neglected what is so raw
you seem so cool in the pictures on the walls
seems so true just like perfect mirrors
I donʼt believe weʼre so close
youʼre talking of things you donʼt know
you wanna remove the king from the throne
but buddy thereʼs no king at all
the world ainʼt hanging on your everyword
you ainʼt special
you boring cow




LET ME DROWN

I’m divin into the sea, I’ll feel the deep the calling thrill
That is so addictive,
you know I wish I would stain the dull, all with blue,
Let me drown with you x2
I’ll feel nauseous for a second then I’ll suppose it will be done
I only suppose cause nobody knows
Let me drown with you, I’ll feel better
Let me drown with you x2
I’m divin into the sea, I feel like drowning
I’ll feel the deep, the calling thrill
That is so addictive
I am sitting in my car, I am moving no more
All the windows are closed but the water is coming in
All I want is to be fine, all I need is something shining in the dark
All my whispers so low make this deep sound insane
Novocain into my lungs
I feel nauseous for hours now
I no more suppose it is now done
And now I know it won’t be short
But you’ll be close
Come aboard and dive, there’s something shining x2
In the dark




SHADOW RIDER

Iʼm running hellhound on my trail
I can feel their breath on my neck
their fangs are shining in the moonlight
Iʼve got to go Iʼve got to move one
no place on earth where I would fall down
Iʼm a shadow rider
no time to pray
cause everyday is my last day
my empty smile my hungry heart
I hide my feelings so deep inside
six feet under, deep, deep, deeper
I run all day and all night long
Iʼm blind and deaf I canʼt be wrong
Iʼm a shadow lover
no time to pray
cause everyday is my last day
no pain no gain
Iʼm running like hell
when youʼll see the sun falling down
youʼll meet me just look around
Iʼll be gazing up
and then Iʼll leave
Iʼm a shadow rider
oh yes Iʼll leave
Iʼm a shadow lover
and Iʼm running like hell




HIGH IN HEAVENLY PLACES

see the witch smiling on the top of the hill
waiting for the prophecy
way back deep into the safe of heat
where I feel free
Iʼm drinking dust, my fingers rust
Iʼm better off alone
I see the clouds, they come again
I used to feel the sun, it’s time to fear the storm
I wanna get high in heavenly places
swear youʼll come again
I feel the whip sliding on the back of my skin
I feel it real
my own faceʼs turning into an awful scream
a monsterʼs scene
Iʼm drinking dust, my fingers rust
Iʼm better off alone, I donʼt fear the cold
I see the clouds, they come again
I used to feel the sun, it’s time to fear the storm
the clouds turn off the brightness
Iʼm feeling oh so fine
let me dive into the darkness
switching off the lights in your head
keeping all the weirdness
