Deaf house 01:07
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

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

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

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

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

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?

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

Broken hands 02:55
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

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…

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

Soul Dealer 04:46
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

Hit and burn 04:13
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

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…
