1.
Waiting in a room full of sorrows The tinier the room becomes, the smaller I am, the smaller I am. The window, shows light. Through the window I can see outside. The tinier the window becomes, the less light I see. The less light I see. The warmth of the heart has fled, with the birds to places far away. There is nothing here but drops of flesh. Swimming in a frozen sea at last.

The Body 05:44
I am moving, towards the bleak side, through you. Moving inside, all around but through you. Claim the light, that’s what darkness will do. I’m a ghost in this world. That’s one thing true. Release me, Robot heart pleases me. Release me, Your shape, it heals me. Attached by veins. But still losing you. I am not me. Not myself but more you. Claims your life. Game over when he chooses. I’m a ghost in this life. That’s one thing true. Release me, Robot heart pleases me. Release me, Your shape, it heals me.

Estranged 05:01
Estranged one, in oblivion. The disease has sprung. Wear the mask of Cain. ‘Cause you still haven’t learned to exit the dream. And I still feel numb. Estranged one, in oblivion. Symmetry gone wrong, infertile brain. ‘Cause you still haven’t found the exit of life. And I still feel numb. I still feel numb.

We all stare. Happiest in your eyes. We all smile, one amongst the others. I found my way, trying to get lost. I found sanity, trying to get mad. Drifting off, like we know Please take what’s mine Crush the urge, will we know, What’s space and time? I mean this cynical Pat on the back, tells you there’s no meaning, but there are consequences. Drifting off, like we know Please take what’s mine Crush the urge, will we know, What’s space and time? Drifting off, like we know Please take what’s mine Crush the urge, will we know, What’s space and time?

Frail as smoke, grass sighs. So that you can be the light. Listen to the beat of time. Watching as stars collide. Let us choke, run and hide. So much temperature rise. Wed to misery and might. Watching how life has died. Let the abyss come. Let the ground crack. Let myself undone. Lost in a deep stare. Let the abyss come. Let the ground crack. Let myself undone. Lost in deep stare. Two roads bend, left or right. So put yourself aside. Worries of the ancient times. Culture of death or life. Grass waves, wait a while, until I am satisfied. Markings of a bygone tribe. Left over lovers fight. Let the abyss come. Let the ground crack. Let myself undone, lost in deep stare. Let the abyss come. let the ground crack. let myself undone. Lost in deep stare.

Crowned on ocean’s waves. The skin falls into the soul. Death waits inside our bones. I’ve seen life and after. That selfish burden. Death awakes inside our bones. In the thin air, gently breathes a last voice. The river always flows. We wait for the last turn. In the thin air, gently preaches a last word for solace and comfort. It sinks into the core. No steps to go up, with a nervous scare of being trapped in the gap of the void

Strangers 04:37
Down in the old valley, where drunken ghosts dragged themselves through grasses. Where the scent of newborn sorrow sunk. Like cold whispers in the wind. A river where blood still runs. Cold and deep in roots it runs. In a lifeless spawn, dragged for an eternal, fiery suffering. Dusty words remember a lost cause. A feeling of a half filled glass. Half poison, half wine. Half bitter, half sweet. some steel, some rust, some victory. Somber sign awakes, like a mist rising. Dressing itself for the sun. Hoovering over fields, loneliness the enemy All alone until it’s gone. it’s gone. In a lifeless spawn, dragged for an eternal, fiery suffering. Dusty words remember a lost cause. A feeling of a half filled glass. Half poison, half wine. Half bitter, half sweet. Some steel, some rust, some victory.

What a desolate planet. The sand , unmovable. The smallest molecule is indifferent to all of you. The sky is out there. I just can’t see it from behind this great nothing. It’s just another reality. It’s not enough.
9.
Honestly, I never knew. How much is it worth? How much is it worth to you? We weigh and stir in nothingness. The pain is shapeless. How much is it worth to you? How much is it worth to you?

Farewell 05:20
Tired eyes softly gaze into the light. Neon gambling brain eats you alive. What a nice war in my mind, but I think too much. Why would anyone fight, if you can choose to be numb. And all I ask is where I’ve been? Weep to the beat. Always a burden to share in that tainted dream. I’ll wash my eyes but I’ll still stay blind. I’ll wash my mind but it’s still a lie. I’ll wash my thighs, but I’ll still stay dry. Wasted sequence of life. All that I ask is where I’ve been? Weep to the beat. Always a pleasure to serve, in that tainted dream. I’ll wash my eyes but I’ll still stay blind. I’ll wash my mind but it’s still a lie. I’ll wash my thighs, but I’ll still stay dry. Makes me cruel but refined.
