1.
The god of time What music he makes An odd rhythm To live and procreate to We dance proudly Or stumble in shame To reach so much But lose it all the same Can't you hear the spirits? They call you from beyond the shadows “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust We are many, and you shall be one of us Keep on dancing from the cradle to the coffin!” Can't you hear the dead? Oh, they call you from beyond the shadows “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust We are many, and you shall be one of us!”

Spirits that I called Keep on haunting me Mistakes that I made Golden memories What a time we had But what a bitter end I regret all the times I fooled you Every white, every grayish lie And I regret the pain I caused you All the tears I made you cry But it was intense And it was unique And just for a while We were all we needed But I should have left before I broke you What a time we had But what a bitter end I regret all the times I fooled you Every white, every grayish lie And I regret the pain I caused you All the tears I made you cry Spirits that I called Keep on haunting me Mistakes that I made I regret all the times I fooled you Every white, every grayish lie And I regret the pain I caused you All the tears I made you cry

Every new day's the death of the last Our time's running, running so fast And you want to maintain what we've got But our time is running, running out so fast There is nothing to hold on to In this ever-changing world There is nothing to rely on And it hurts Tears are falling As the sun's going down And you say that you love me That you need me But you wouldn't, my dear If you knew me better If you knew me well There is nothing to hold on to In this ever-changing world There is nothing to rely on And it hurts The deeper I dig into you The less I seem to find The more I get to know you, love The less I adore you Yes, all pleasure wants eternity But affection fades You wouldn't love me either, love If you knew me If you knew me well Tears are falling As the sun's going down The deeper I dig into you The less I seem to find The more I get to know you, love The less I adore you Yes, all pleasure wants eternity But affection fades You wouldn't love me either, love If you knew me

The Reaping 08:22
And now the scythe is set to reap Because to live's to die a million times And all of me that loves you Is writhing in pain Vicious circle of routine Love burns off like gasoline Time is cruel and takes its toll The lover's never in control Merely driftwood on a stream Everything must fall apart ash to ash, heart after heart Time is cruel and takes its toll The lover's never in control Why is nothing meant to last? I adored you But now the scythe is set to reap Because to live's to die a million times And all of me that loves you Is writhing in pain We're breaking Breaking apart Time is cruel and takes its toll The lover's never in control Merely driftwood on a stream I loved you so But now the scythe is set to reap Because to live's to die a million times And all of me that loves you Is writhing in pain A part of me loved you I really tried To save it But I've let it die You're my dearest My favorite shadow of the past

Vanitas 04:04
Oh, from beyond they call you Whenever you're alone When you're weak “Let it go!" Oh, all the pain and trouble "Let it go!" Misery and fear "Let it go!" Oh, the continuous struggle "Let it go!" It's futile, give in to the urge Life is cruel and uncaring “Let it go!” It's a hell that we're sharing “Let it go!” It's so easy to end it “Let it go!” Oh, how much more pressure before I break? Oh, from beyond they call you Whenever you're alone

We bleed from different wounds But we share a common pain We're haunted by our past Life will never be the same Often it's unbearable But sometimes it's incredible I have also been trough hell Believe me, I feel you I didn't ask to be born And still I'm breathing But I choose to keep it up every day anew Oh, the wounds never heal but I keep bleeding For the moments of bliss That contrast the pain Blood is life To live's to spill it If you've never bled Then you have not lived The heart may be sore But for now, it's still beating The mind may be tired But it's still awake We bleed from different wounds But we share a common pain We're haunted by our past Life will never be the same Often it's unbearable But sometimes it's incredible I have also been trough hell Believe me, I feel you I didn't ask to be born And still I'm breathing But I choose to keep it up every day anew Oh, the wounds never heal but I keep bleeding For the moments of bliss That contrast the pain When life knocks you down again Look into your past Remember what you have bled for You can bleed some more And you will bleed more And you'll stand it 'Cause it's worth it Because life is a gift Spill your blood

I fell for the idea of you Your cold, indifferent attitude Don't be so cruel, please care for me So I can lose interest and be free Yeah Come, fall for the idea of me Ignore my instability I'm beautiful and eloquent I need you to love me 'cause I can't Hell, no I need to learn to let the person go that I imagined you to be Learn to let the image go that I've internalized The Devil guides your every step Oh God, I want my backbone back A cat that's playing with its prey Won't you get bored and swallow me? Come on, do it now I need to learn to let the person go that I imagined you to be Learn to let the image go that I've internalized I need to let the image go that I've internalized Let the person go that you've never been That you'll never be That I don't deserve
8.
I always find a way To ruin what is precious To burn what I have sown And hurt the ones I love Intimacy is hell When it's no longer heaven Solitude's a hydra Come on, chop off the head Let's soothe our pain for a while With affection and saliva 'Cause nothing lasts forever In pieces we shall rest Baby, won't you include me in your midnight prayers? I'm bleeding to death from my chest And I already know that I'll ruin this, darling But hard it's less hard to forget I always find a way To ruin what's precious To burn what I have sown And hurt the ones I love I am a mess indeed Emotionally crippled I crave for love so badly I bite the hand that feeds And all I ever need is something Unattainable to desire I guess it's kinda funny It almost makes me laugh Baby, won't you include me in your midnight prayers? I'm bleeding to death from my chest And I already know that I'll ruin this, darling But hard it's less hard to forget I always find a way To ruin what's precious To burn what I have sown And hurt the ones I love

Apocalypse 03:25
Can't you see that I'm drowning? Can't you feel me drowning in your heart? This is too much to handle, darling Too much for me You're so addictive You make me feel so young You touch my skin And the world is dead and gone Your lips My lips Apocalypse Can't you see that I'm drowning? Can't you feel me drowning in your heart? This is too much to handle, darling Too much for me Give me all your love tonight I want to hold you close and feel your heartbeat I need your love tonight I want to hold you close and never let you go Give me all your love tonight I want to hold you close and feel your heartbeat
10.
And thrown into this world We start to dissipate Security goes by All constants start to crumble What gives you hold wears out What eases gets used up And chaos breaks free Every embrace, every kiss Roots in a yearning to be whole Is an attempt to feel complete At least together If not separately Just for a while Oh, I don't want do die But if I could have chosen I am not quite sure If I'd have wanted to be born What gives me hold wears out What eases gets used up I feel my decay Every embrace, every kiss Roots in a yearning to be whole Is an attempt to feel complete At least together If not separately Just for a while
