Track Name: It Must Not Rain

No more pain in vain
I can feel it burning
Hey! You’re just insane
You moving picture, you’re not alive

No more, illusions,
Abyss, ahead
Fake smile, assumption
Your life is merging to the end!

He looks at the sky
Fears the horizon
A dark brushstroke
He may not return

He runs and runs in circles
Trying to find a way out
A well known exit Since long ago
Nothing’s for sure, nothing’s certain, but now
Behind the wooden shell awaits…

his(her) life

“Panic, I need to get the hell out of here, this can’t be happening, (…) I know that light doesn’t lie, but – this can’t be for real. (…) I’ll go higher, looking for a so-called peace, outside this haze (…) I-I think I can move.” “I can feel the shades, their ignorance, their indifference, it all turns back on me. Is this a lesson? Is this life? I can’t get the meaning! (…) it’s like the darkness is aware of this state of mind, and somehow (…) this is my dawn, not her dawn.”

The tempest stalks
The final need
To wipe the sky
Covered with tears of deceit

His short journey
Turns into a eternal nightmare
It all turns black Aching black, Deadly black

Nothing’s for sure, nothing’s certain, but now
Once more enslaved by his own…

It must not rain
The purity’s compromised
Will I break the spell?
For an illusion of life

Don’t be me, or feel me,
It wouldn’t be worth it
It must not rain
It wouldn’t be worth it, no

Time is shown, in this cell,
Endless, feared, suppressed,
“I need to get the hell out of here, Free my self for God sake and fly”.

Something’s here don’t let me down
My friend.
Bring me down I don’t have time to
fall again.
Track Name: Freak Show

We're getting close to the next stop
We're getting right to the core
Where reason fades into ashes
and impulse takes control

Freak Show at midnight

A light blinding the present
Feel the lust passing that door
An insufficient intrusion for illusion takes its toll

Freak Show
Surreal warnings

Four big steps down to the floor
A way back home I could deploy
A fast retreat of body and soul

Hate! Greed! Scars! Need!
Blood! Flesh! Die!
Gain more disillusions
True smiles, assumptions
Your life is merging to hell!

Take me away It’s all your pain

A Sun that shines in front of my eyes
A new breaking dawn guiding me
The calm trace of the sea healing my skin

Though I feel these burns
dying isolated,
right here inside myself,

Delusions will end,
a future’s ahead
No More!

No answer was left
no disillutions at all
at last his mind, will shine again
Track Name: P`re (Carnival Of Lies)

There is no tomorrow
Only a distant
passed yesterday
fading me away

I moved dust and fire
even forced the poet, to step aside
from my own fight
I won't escape
you're my strength

I've been fulfilled
I had been asleep
I’m gonna lose my mind
Down this carnival
I'm just a clown
From this unfaithful lie

I'm crawling near...

but then...

(Go) I need to try
(Now) No matter Why
(Follow) Follow my Faith
(no) I'll never break

(Fear) I won't give in [Feel destiny, you will succeed]
(Closer) I feel it near [Go now my friend, Fight now be brave.]
(Vision) Life is too short [Look at her smile, strength you must find]
(Future) Don't lose control [Deep in this haze, love will prevail]
I can feel the madness in your eyes
touched by an intrinsical indecision -for what?-
Frustrating any attempt of intrusion
in your life -I try but I can't-
release this inhibition

Words arrive in Vain (Vanishing unheard)
Thoughts remain unknown
forced to resignation

I Have reached the point of no return
no longer afraid
Won't take any pain

I've been fulfilled
I had been asleep
I’m gonna lose my mind
Down this carnival
I'm just a clown
Am I?
From this unfaithful lie

I've been fulfilled
I had been asleep
I’m gonna lose my mind
Down this carnival
you let me down
see you later good bye
Track Name: Reliable Fate (Ft. Denis Kormakov)

I can feel the evilness, but I can’t read her eyes,
Ancient ways to hide the truth behind the lies,
Only the believers shall remain and will arise,
Now! Heaven and Hell unite!

The door is already locked and there is no turning back.

Mirror from the eternal light,
Help me to discover my life,
I have wasted too much time,
There is no place to leave behind.
Trapped in a senseless fight,
Hard to recognize what is right,
I am in the shadows,
Face it right now, open your eyes,
Open now!

Hear me falling (I hear your screams)
Keep me breathing (Now!)
I am calling you (Answer me, answer me!)
I am going down…

Her unconscious words danced with terror in my mind,
My word’s echo filled the silence of the night,
“Try to understand your future and you’ll learn your past”
Silent hopes, into a crying sky,

The door is already locked and there is no turning back.

Mirror from the eternal light,
Help me to discover my life,
I have wasted too much time,
There is no place to leave behind.
Trapped in a senseless fight,
Hard to recognize what is right,
I am in the shadows,
Face it right now, open your eyes,

In the end, ashes left, Your time will come.
Track Name: Evenfall (Pt. II)
Track Name: Mind On The Run

Cold, falling from a dream
Watching every window
Lost, I hear screams inside my head.
My cold body lies
my mind has traveled far
My life and my pride
will die within my lust

I’m so far away right now
I’ll wait for them, aside,
I might have to make this trip,
My pain’s healed I had reborn

Pain, hard for me now
I’ve led my side
It shines on my soul

Like a king
was dethroned (by his own knights)
Something knew
he would not control
Like a fool
that has won (his own fight)
Now he rules
His dry, empty heart

“No matter when, no matter how. fears will fade, Mind on the run
Day after day, night after night Angels will die, up in the sky”
Track Name: The Fall Of Men

I've seen a painting
Something acknowledged but not done.
So many fears,
Descriptions dying into one,

Feeling safe?
Ignorance should be my guest,
I'll breathe my heart out, astray,
(Nothing could matter, far beyond, so…)
High and low, the tide always falls.

Staring imperfection
I've grown to realize its price
Though immorality was chosen
For this eroding path

A sudden strike, a deadly one
Strives and whispers for control
A blurred projection once again
Distorting every single thought.

And careless it begins to rise,
Expecting me, to reach and drown,
But with my own thirst and dismay,
I couldn't wait until it drains,
“Feeling so cold”

Finally, it feels like,

Here I stand,
If I could take you by my side,
I've lost my pride,
My madness brought me were I stand.
Just in case,
I won't give up,

Here I stand,
If I could take you by my side.
I've lost my pride,
My madness brought me were I stand.
I'm scared to death
as this enclosure fades away
I can’t think
Nothing certain except for this pain.
I can’t escape from this Freak Show

(Ascending by diverging roads, intending not to loose control)
(Descending with the same old load, a segway in this inner fall)
Track Name: The Waiting Room

Times like these, can change
The slightliest thing can make too much,
And the clock’s still ticking,
And I’m surrounded in its dizziness,
The one that’s drifting in my mind.

From one to three starts the frenzy,
Clouds continue getting empty,
Guided by a single burden growing, older, bigger and Strong.
Though it feels good, it seems good,
It claims to be right,
But why is it fading?

“Thoughts, thoughts, thoughts
Not a single one I could embrace”

“This leads to nowhere and I just
Keep running in circles.”

Just want to shut down, it burns like hell’s fire.
Then everything will turn out fine, right?

Something holds my love and
what scares me the most is that
I truly believe this might be my only chance.

Do you know that feel? The void of self awareness
Embeautied in its most pure form.

Embrace your soul instead.
Did you consider the Human Condition, the Human Trinity?
Mind, body and Soul…

You cannot exist without any of them,
You are FIRE! And you are consuming.
Feel, touch, breathe, run, love, swim,
Climb, laugh, cry, feed your elements.

Take control if you want to burn like a thousand suns,
This is your only chance!

I’m not going to put up with this!
You’ve got a whole world
Right in front of you!

All those things you can do are just
there waiting for you to take control.

Did you think this might’ve been
Your only chance?

And yet you seem unable to grasp this freedom
That’s right in your eyes.

Keep me in this world,
Spinning no control,
Shadows on my soul I will destroy them all
You can’t expect silent prayers,
Reaching in and out

Lost in this place
Carried away,
No destination for my own.
I’m stripped away outside this world.
A faithless ride

“Hello, hi, how are you? Fine, okay? It’s time to unveil this lies.
Stop pretending, we need to be ourselves.
Shut up and listen for once, you know.”

I’m sick of chasing thoughts again
In every way, a new life it’s found
It’s time to move on…

Long ago, I’ve heard about this place,
Somewhere I used to go to find myself,
To breathe and die again

But now I can’t remember who I was,
Just in time to know for sure
Not always you can’t stop.

Outside this room
You cannot hide
Your deepest nightmares will arise
An Inner Fall to claim for every night.

No need to hide (I need to try)
Just one more time (No matter why)
So follow my strength
I need to believe (In something)
And nothing seems right.

No! I can’t pretend no more!
I can’t pull through this again!
In this Waiting Room
Ripples fading, scenes erased.
