Mankind 04:39
We still represent the up-side-down world! WE ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH! denial towards reality; our arcane sanity! I, RISE! If I play my own role, substitute myself: a broadcasted eclipse, a downfall of all! It controls me and they will control you! A constant praise to our sanity, providing darkness over reality. Living under predetermined circumstances, provide the feel that we still not handle everything! I, FALL! Denying my own role, substitute another self; here they are: "Let them go underneath!" Let they see what you've been always feared off! We still represent the up-side-down world! WE ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH: denial towards reality; and praising on our own sanity! "Evidently one endures anything, provided one has a goal." We teach ourselves for the silence! WE TEACH OURSELVES FOR THE SILENCE! WE MASK OUR HEART - in front of the loved ones! WE FADE OUR EYES - not to look in the inside! WE IGNORE THE TRUTH - to vitalize a fake world! WE GATHER OUR FORCES - to throw it astray and to fragment all away!

I am so sorry for your loss! Now we are on that, a compound fades into darkness: What if I know? If I’ve found that: a circulating mindset. No reason to wake up, because a spider is weaving in us Crawling through a mirror, while its web - withdraws us all Wait, I’m not bleeding, there’s a slit on my forehead and I’m dripping away through a profound scar of the reasons, why I still believe in fictions. This why it tears me up, ignoring lies through the vague lens of rust This is not me enough, adequate scratches on a hollow past, while spiders are weaving in me! There is a moment when we all fade away! A fracture on time when, we’re able to break the breach: Rewinding, a sacred life from the start, A heartbeat recreates a spark on divine lights! While we all sing on our own: I can measure the weight of the soul, it’s the darkness minus the ghost In me or was it our life? Left behind from the start I can measure the weight of the soul, it’s the darkness minus the ghost In me or was it our life? Left behind from the start I can measure the weight of the soul, it’s the darkness minus the ghost Reverse the frame our life The wave inside brings dusk into light “Weaving spiders come not here…”

Oppressed 03:14
We are bringing plague to our pharaos! We are the oath to the nobody! We are bringing new doctrines to the world! We are saluting over the edge! This egocentrical world failure made into the state of what we call a human annihilation. I’m praising, I’m fading. We are bringing plague to our pharaos! We are the oath to the nobody! We are bringing new doctrines to the world! We are saluting over the edge! In my dreams a monster cries: because humans are complicated beasts. You believe comforting lies, while knowing full well the painful truth that makes those lies necessary. In the end, it is not important what you feel. It is only important what you have done. Yes, what we have done: OH LORD, A PARASITE IS LIVING IN MY MIND AND IT'S PREYING UPON ME!

Resonate 05:43
‘Floating in the cosmos, waiting for a wave... I’m waiting to resonate!’ And here we are standing at the frontiers of life: are we facing on our future or its just all inverted down? Now breathe in the life, heal your constant duel with the time in the name of those who we love: it’s time to resonate the world! We are heading in a war! Time to reverse what you see and hear: a moment of clarifying your dreams! Are we making no progress? Let me swing between the frame and the aspect! MIND AWAKE / BODY ASLEEP Is this the truth? Or I’m still not awake? MIND AWAKE / BODY ASLEEP I keep controlling my fears, but they are following me! MIND AWAKE / BODY ASLEEP I am the reason, I am the vain. MIND AWAKE / BODY ASLEEP Wish for an escape from the hell what I seek. HERE I AM TO CONFRONT WHAT I AM I AM THE BREACH OF EXISTENCE ANTIDOTE FOR THE MADNESS WE ARE THE CURE FOR WAKING UP ON OUR OWN AND TO REALIZE REAL LIES CONTRAST IS WHAT KEEPS US TOGETHER! Surrounding silent void of all eternal forms, haunting living past is not what I wanted to feel! Silence tears me up despite of all the trust, that I have done with it I know it’s much more than I am able to cope with! I am the reason we hold it, who is the symptom of all this? Carrying the weight, carrying it further! Encountering: witness the full scale remedy! Repeat the same thing over and over again: I’m breathing, yes I’m breathing, exhale what I have done! Exhale everything we’ve done, exhale the past until it’s all gone Exhale it, repeat it until we resonate the world!
