Track Name: Darkness Rising
Then he came by himself and
he came from nothing, a defect

My darkness rises now
A cancer to never heal
There's blackness in my life
Impairing and depraved
Now causing a great stir
A sickness to never heal
There's blankness in my thoughts
Malevolent I am...

My struggle rises now
A torment to never ease
There's grayness in my sight
Aggrieved and deathlike
My wrong line, just for once?
A failure to never cease
There's pressure on my breaths
Worthless I am…

…but life is in vain, a defect, my pain
I am… but life isn't grand, it's fading in my hand

Languages that won't be understood
Pictures of a soul-destroying crowd
Moments to mix up the periods of my life
Rapid deep red eyes, so come on, slow down

The dark thought, left alone
And so wrong, I'm so torn, torn

A struggle for oneself
Phrases exchanged for deeds
Plains paved with huge stones
All colours in grey shades
Then he came by himself
He came from nothing
A defect in process
Nonviable I am...

… but life is in vain, a defect, my pain
I am … but life isn't grand, it's fading in my hand

Then he left by himself and
he vanished, his dead march
Track Name: Ghosts
Well-known issues put me to the test
The unliving bar my way again
Indisposition, I am under the delusion of keeping the balance
Cut and run

They lead me astray, treat me with contempt
Much as I sympathize, I can't do that
The pros and cons, no longer in balance

What is left of me?
Living for the last days
To lead a plain life and I see

May I bring up the question of killing you?
May I ask why I'm already dead on arrival?
Its existence can't be denied

What is left...

This is real-life, this is melancholy
Ghosts without form, without a soul inside
This is real-life, this is treachery
Ghosts pass by, pass in black and white

Egoist, don't I know that
Anti-social, I should say so
Philanthropist, don't you know that
Way off the truth, I should say no... No!

Antipathetic to all those hollow shapes
Splitting headache causes thought derangement
Just hate

What is left of me?
Living for the last days
To lead a plain life and I see

I don't trust anyone but the course of life
Try to hinder the ordinary run of things
Aversion equals A-Life, boredom rules
Deep-dwelling and no dissipations, my red rag
Track Name: Abyssal Fall
Slay!

Gather all your strength and break through the gate
Make out what you're into here, abyssal fall
In emptiness, only a faint light left to dream for
Despair gets closer and fear and hate explode

Right, I run into my worst letdown, yet a lonesome tragedy
False, you think I am in contentment, yet a distended lie
But I feel and bleed in parted worlds, yet a sharp thinking away

No, you critized all the wrong things - harassment
Ignorance splitted – blandness indulges ire

I am floating, right now we're drifting apart
A new life rising, beckoning and ensnaring
I am raging, attaining finite relief
A new death rising, how much can I bear in this life?

Solich

A trigger to raise your voice
Against the big words, so choose
Honor all my resistance
Honor all my rage

Solich

No, you critized all the wrong acts – discussions
Intuition splitted – restless but weakening

Inside them twisted thoughts
Woeful, but existential
Don't bother me, I am lost in this strife
Thanks for the ugly time
Confusion kills my sanity
Rationality blurs, choose among life...
