Track Name: Deaf house
I've been putting myself down comparing
My own senses to yours complaining
I've even thought that I should quit
You said "don't give me too much credit"
Still I felt the goose bumps growing
Upon my body even when you told me

Welcome to my house
Where your eyes see greener grass
We are all as deaf as you
Every key hole has an eye to be seen through
Track Name: Walking around the block
I've been walking around this block one thousand times
Electric wires and sidewalks another desert ground
The streets mumble every day
Complaints and whispers never stay
All my neighbors are zombies
I feel like being carried away


Cause I've been blinded the day when I opened my eyes
I started dying the same day when I first cried
And now I'm waiting for someone to come around
But no one ever shows to the underground

I'm on a terminal status timeless TV screen
This pathetic living is senseless unless you understand the means
It all turns out so predictable
You got the goods you're reliable
Instead of taking a fair step out I'd rather stick here with my doubts

Cause I've been blinded the day when I opened my eyes
I started dying the same day when I first cried
And now I'm waiting for someone to come around
But no one ever shows to the underground

I've seen this scene so many times it seems this time I'm in between
The choices made would not combine one took the road, low self esteem
Has settled clearly on the screen, the self destruction of the scheme
All that came out was just a scream
Track Name: Stones hardly move but they can always think about it
I'll find my way back home
But you cannot make me move
I will focus on the picture
So I won't move
I've been myself for way too long
For you to expect to make me move
So I'll stand still won't go no further
No I won't move

If we're pushed it reveals only crummy worms
Crawling back into dirt where they can't get hurt

The frame we live in….Will break our bones
We're so close to dying….We keep on digging
Shoveling stones

Stones are what we are made of
Changing takes quite some time
We all know time won't surrender
We wait in line

If we're pushed it reveals only crummy worms
Crawling back into dirt where they can't get hurt
We're told so many lies
A static walk rimes with pride

Let go, my friend
What slows you down is my static hand
Move on, don't stop, I know, I trust you
To unchain the gates, escape

This frame we live in…. that breaks our bones
I'm so close to dying…..I'll keep on digging
Shoveling stones

Flower my grave, I've been buried for decades
I speak and I pray, all I've been taught for decades
Track Name: Heart and Faith
I live a promise which I can't cheat
The sky upon us will witness me
Heart and faith cannot wear out

I have a secret I cannot tell
My very spirit's under a spell
Heart and faith cannot wear out

All the darkest demons burn within
(In short time) Consuming all soon you will know too
(Free minds) Stories told and ours will know differ
Here comes your fairytale, farewell

The spider's knitting to prepare the feast
I will keep quiet, wait for the beast
Heart and faith cannot wear out

All the darkest demons burn within
(In short time) Consuming all soon you will know too
(Free minds) Stories told and ours will know differ
Here comes your fairytale, Farewell
Track Name: the Darkness Comes
The darkness comes
And I still wait
The secret is
You cannot leave

Under my feet
The threat of lightning's power is escaping from my sight
I'm kind of lost
Everything's upside down and I'm lighter than I thought

You'll hear the silence from ahead
All you've been or done or said
Doesn't matter
What's yours anyway? Please enjoy your stay
Stick to whatever you might play

The darkness comes and I still wait
The secret is you cannot leave, you can't retreat

Under my feet
The threat of lightning's power is escaping from my sight
I'm kind of lost
Everything is upside down and I'm lighter than I thought
Track Name: Side of the lane
Who's the most glorious
Now that there's no more us?
Who has the greatest brain?
Who doesn't get wet when it rains?
Who had the final word?
And when that time occurred
Who has the biggest pain?
To me it's all the same now

That I stand on the right side of the lane
You stand on the left side of the lane
I'll stand on the right side of the lane
When you stand on the left side

Who didn't care enough?
And who cared a bit too much?
Who was the most sincere?
Who didn't get two bleeding ears?
Who was too paralyzed
When feelings were real hot inside?
Who was the most to blame?
To me it's all the same now

That I stand on the right side of the lane
You stand on the left side of the lane
I'll stand on the right side of the lane
When you stand on the left side

What do we care who's right or wrong
All we need is to get along
So if we can't stand each other
Let's not play it dumb and dumber
Separate the fire from the bomb

What do we care who's right or wrong
All we need is to carry on
Quit lying to each other
Make the longest story shorter
Separate the fire from the bomb

I'll stand on the right side of the lane
You'll stand on the left side of the lane
You'll stand on the right side of the lane
If I stand on the left side

I'll stand on the right side
Where you can let go of the pain
You'll stand on the left side
Comfort yourself against the grain
Who stands on the right side?
Who stands on the right side?
Track Name: Our greatest times won't disappear
I've heard that sleeping's just an exercise for death
So maybe days are kind of testaments
The sadness is a drag
But you'll get to feel the breeze tomorrow

All that I ask for when I'm gone
Is that you all just sing along
Our greatest times won't disappear
Unless you drown them all in tears
And I will miss you all as well
As long as you miss people in hell
Our greatest times won't disappear
Unless you drown them all in tears

It's just a feeling we all get from time to time
When all our precious minutes are passing by
The sadness is a drag
But you'll get to feel the breeze tomorrow

All that I ask for when I'm gone
Is that you all just sing along
Our greatest times won't disappear
Unless you drown them all in tears
And I will miss you all as well
As long as you miss people in hell
Our greatest times won't disappear
Unless you drown them all in tears

And I'll keep singing out this song
To all my friends those who are gone
For Jack and Timmy for the good times
You're forever in my mind
And I will miss you all as well
As long as you miss people in hell
Our greatest times won't disappear
Unless you drown them all in tears
Track Name: Broken hands
Come all on board
Guess what, I'm sure
New face, new life
Feel fine, it's alright

I'm not alone
See for your own
Too late, thought twice
You slipped on thin ice

It's not that pleasant
To stand still where I am
You live in silence
Now I'm left with broken hands

Feel proud we're on tracks
Good ones, not last
Don't feel oppressed
We'll deal with what is left




Hello machine
Where is my old friend Tim
Insane madness
Invades my wrists

The greatest violence
Is not within my hands
To burn our bridge down
Burn it down with who I am

To burn the bridge down x4

It's not that pleasant
To stand still where I am
You live in silence
Now I'm left with broken hands
The greatest violence
Is not within my hands
To burn our bridge down
Burn it down with who I am
Track Name: My Shrink (has got a lot to deal with)
Well my shrink says really cool things
I just can't help myself repeating every word he speaks
I really feel like he's my best friend
How dare you doubt his magical lips when he says

You haven't cured from half of your pathologies

I sense a hyper active phobia
Your life sustains a drama
It's probably your parents
And the fact that you've been lacking friends
On my sofa every minute is a dollar
'til I say you're alright, alright

My shrink has got a great couch
It's really comfy and I get to use it every time
I come to say I'm feeling better, better, better, better…
Still I get dizzy from the hammering words in my head

You haven't cured from half of your pathologies, no Sir
Why have I studied all these year but to decide the way you feel, and when you'll heal?

You know my parent chose my job….so I would fit into the mob
Myself I could have felt real better….I would have loved to be a writer
You know this office makes me bitter….I hate this city from fall to summer
I hate you and all your problems….Behind the mask I hit rock bottom

He's far from cured…

He's got a hyper active phobia
His life sustains a drama
It's probably his parents
And the fact that he's been lacking friends
Schizophrenia has taken his brains over
And it seems he's got a lot to deal with…
Track Name: Attack of the tooth pics
My eyes are bleeding,
This ain't no disease
Although it seems
Increasing actions,
The treat I seek
Ain't on the couch or on TV

They keep attacking
A constant fight
And I keep on running

I'm feeling dizzy
I'm feeling weak
But I got to finish this before I go to sleep
Attack of the toothpicks
Within my eyes
I mighty have to take some rest before they take my life

My eyelids are shaking
Saying "you should cease,
Relentless late activities"
But I'd ignore
And switch on, 24
Images per second

So they keep attacking
A constant fight
And I keep on running



They put me under arrest
My legs, my head and my chest
The tooth pick brigade was released
Still I try to resist…
Sleep is work that's been missed
I ain't done with my list
Still I try to resist from the broken bones and blood shot eyes

I'm feeling dizzy
I'm feeling weak
But I got to finish this before I go to sleep
Attack of the toothpicks
Within my eyes
I might have to get some rest before they take my life

Attack of the toothpicks within my eyes
Track Name: Soul Dealer
I played my part you got the fame
And from the very start you were the only one to blame
I gave you glory and power when you were weak and a coward
Now I decide when you die

And I'll keep playing on with you
And I'll keep playing on with you
The sweetest souls, my precious gold
And you'll keep smiling to the crowd, tonight

You'll play you're part they're all the same
They grow a bitter heart but still all have felt the flames
The mark is stained on your shoulder now that your soul's mine it's over
Now I decide when you die
Now I decide when you die

It's never coming back
And the wind blew just a little too hard for you to hear it coming
Now you're my little brat and there's no way to break our agreement

And I'll keep playing on with you
And I'll keep playing on with you
The sweetest souls, my precious gold
And you'll keep smiling to the crowed
You're mine and it will stay that way, tonight
Track Name: Hit and burn
You are not immortal, I've been through many lies
A bullet full of anger, has come across my mind
To slaughter you I'm crazy
I'm sick of all this shit

Another day another hit, bruises on my chest
I feel like they were always there, ever since we've met
I've been through many colors
I've been purple blue now I'm red
I've been lying to the others
Pretending we were both… Pretending we were both ok

So my tears would hit the floor
But you would never listen to a single word I said
And I tried to save our souls
But you were always rough and now we're both kind of dead

You begged so I stayed …But you keep coming
And I'm still bleeding
It's grown I have got a plan….I'm just warming
You'll be burning

And we're so far away from what we used to be
And I'm so far away from what I dreamed to be

So my tears would hit the floor
But you would never listen to a single word I said
And I tried to save our souls
But you were always rough and now we're both kind of dead
Track Name: Deaf house (tambien)
You've been talking lovely words about me
I can't remember all but it made me happy
I know they were not all quit fit
You gave me too much credit
Still you gathered letters and wrote some notes
And kept spreading all you spoke as I thought

Welcome to my house
Where your eyes see greener grass
We are all as deaf as you
Every key hole has an eye to be seen through
I really hope to do what I'm supposed to…
