Track Name: Spineless
It all began with a ghastly feeling,
A baleful vibration from deep within,
A fire raging against my skin,
Pealing my patience, my faith is struggling
How is it possible, how is it possible to

Drift out of this mess
Dismiss every ounce of weakness
I'm ill and restless
Until I surrender my senses

Should I hold on to my dreams
I'm bound to sink with my boulders
and let the pain carry me
Waiting for echoes in...

So there it sways,
the first wind to blow
Twisting my mind it bewilders my flow
Stripped of all will, it pulls and it peals,
I’m torn apart by its tornado!

Dawn wakes me up and my guilt nails me down
Tomorrow may be I will...

Drift out of this mess
Dismiss every ounce of weakness
I'm ill and restless
Until I surrender my senses
Should I hold on to my dreams
I'm bound to sink with my boulders
and let the pain Carry me
Waiting for echoes in...

I followed you into your lair
As I
Always knew the fare

To sate this need is like filling with emptiness
I'm now aware, I'm now aware !

You'll never be satisfied, no more lies...
I'll never be satisfied, still we try...

It all began with this ghastly feeling
I should face it now before it sucks me in

Drift out of this mess
Dismiss every ounce of weakness
I’m ill and restless
Until I surrender my senses

Should I hold on to my dreams
I'm bound to sink with my boulders
and let the pain Carry me
Waiting for echoes in...

EMPTINESS
Track Name: The Game
There's an elephant in the room,
Should we talk about it?
I see you teasing the animal
Should I take it as a dare?

The further you go; the deeper I doubt
This need to cheat at the brink of a fault
It deepens our doubts, no denying:
You crave to do without

There's a poker hand with a jack and queen
But no king in between
And as faith and luck collide
A river king could turn the tide

The further you go; the deeper I doubt
This need to cheat at the brink of a fault
It deepens our doubts, no denying:
You crave to do without

Being two instead of three i want it fiercely
The way you're teasing me, the king would burry me

There's a poker hand with a jack and queen
But no king in between
And As faith and luck collide
A river king could turn the tide

There's an elephant in the room
Let's go crazy about it

The further you go; the deeper I doubt
A need to cheat at the brink of a fault
It deepens our doubts,
No denying...
Track Name: Rare Candy (Metapod)
I'm walking dumb, numb loaded
All lights and sound distorted
It breaks somewhere between my skull and I

Nobody wants to stay in a stagnant state
Forgetting the wanted fate
So why would I, Why would I

Show me how to cut corners
Show me how to reap what I didn't sow
Show me how to skip all the steps and trick the fights

If you expect me to be patient, then you forgot the world we're living in
Where results can be bought...
Another magic pill, another fullfilment
There's no more useless terms*

Show me how to cut corners
Show me how to reap what I didn't sow
Show me how to skip all the steps and trick the fights
Let me gather where I did not scatter
Bring me your file, Where can I sign? Where!?

I'm WAY more than a human I'm a Babylonian
Only pleasure matters, I want it more and more and more!
How intense...

Show me something insane,
Come on shoot me up until it's all the same
Is sane the same as insane; am I sane or insane

We're all spiders on windows laid between the sky and the void
Where there's no place for shadows and all the things we avoid

I feel helpless as the crack grows
The glass is weak, it's too weak
I'll break through the void

I'll break through unless you show me how to reap where I didn't sow
Show me how to cut corners!
Show me how to skip all the steps and trick the fights!
Let me gather where I did not scatter
Bring me your file, Where can I sign?
BRING ME YOUR FILE
WHERE CAN I SIGN

Track Name: Criminal
I wanna be a criminal
who flies from time to time
I’m becoming an animal
who glides from rhyme to crime

Barefoot in the mire,
A foggy desire,
Belvedere's strobing,
Revealing Hearts on discount...

Is it that I'm tired
An illusion so far
The Backstreet's whispering:
"Let me show you what's behind the lies you hide inside"

I wanna be a criminal
who flies from time to time
I’m becoming an animal
who glides from rhyme to crime

Let's hope one day I’ll realize That I’m like oil on fire
A spark turns me on Bursting what’s left of my mind

I found a weird family who has it all to please me
All I could do was agree to their ensnaring creed,
Keeping focus on their entertainment,
Serving the circus as a client

I wanna be a criminal
who flies from time to time
I’m becoming an animal
who glides from rhyme to crime

Let's hope one day I’ll realize That I’m like oil on fire
A spark turns me on, a spark turns me on
Bursting what’s left of my mind

Can a man be more depraved?
I’ve lost my origins, traded them for another skin
Am I the one who betrays?
In a game played like a race amongst those familiar faces!
Who gave me everything From the Craddle to the grave

I found a weird family who has it all to please me
All I could do is agree to their ensnaring creed
I've lost my focus on my entertainment
When the laughter’s reduced to silence

I wanna be a criminal
who flies from time to time
I’m becoming an animal
who glides from rhyme to crime

Let's hope one day I’ll realize That I’m like oil on fire
A spark turns me on, a spark turns me on
Bursting what’s left of my mind
Track Name: Treasure
We were born from atomic bombs
Far from a baby boom with a hippie tongue

Rushing down a mislead Highway
Blinders on, yet I can see
Through the shades of a perfect world
Made for its designers

My rise is straining at their leach
'cause they fear what I could reach
I suffocate, they're smothering me
I need to breath, I need to leave!

We'll find that dreamer's road
As we roam across the desert
Where mind and wind blow freely
There'll be no ease, we'll take our chance
Until we find that Treasure

At the edge of a new horizon,
Breaking out of the city’s gloom
I still feel sick, intoxicated
I need a cure, where should I go!?

We'll find that dreamer's road
As we roam across the desert
Where mind and wind blow freely
There'll be no ease, we'll take our chance
Until we find that Treasure

I need to keep my senses clear
In the idleness of my mind distant voices
throw back their fears

some will get lost but some will find
Their own path beyond the line

We’ve got broken chemical bounds!
the radiation, mutation
has damaged the entire human race!!

We were born from atomic bombs...

We'll find that dreamer's road
As we roam across the desert
Where mind and wind blow freely
There'll be no ease, we'll take our chance
Until we find that Treasure
