Starsign

Like a bolt from the blue, descending from the sky
My brain collapses in the dead of night
Too much for my psyche, another crack-up
If you’re awake,please join me
All the things you see, the same as what I see
We listen to the sound of nervous breakdown

A death wish blends with a will to live
One of the things that freaks me out

I’m waiting for a sign, have to leave this place behind
Where no one knows my name
And later we come down, we both break down and cry
(And say) our last goodbye…

I break the chains, I’m out of line
I’m living on my nerves, last days of ninety-nine

Nightmare, conspiracy, depression and lunacy
I need to feel more love inside
Locked up, messed up, maybe there is no tomorrow
All this thinking does me no good
I’ll miss you my love, but it’s about time
That this world goes up in flames…

Eclipse

As we dwell inside the safe zones that we’ve made
Where nothing but earthly pleasures seem to matter
The only light we see is from the screens
No will to feel or explore the forgotten dimensions

Some day we’ll catch a glimpse of eternity
As the world stands still, for a moment
And I guess we will be making history
When we all join hands just to watch the sky

(For a moment…)

Our selfish lives have made us all go blind
One day we’ll awake by a bright light on the horizon
In one second every eye will see the same
And this blinding light will draw all our attention

Some day we’ll catch a glimpse of eternity
As the world stands still, for a moment
For the very first time and it’s meant to be

We’ll forget about ourselves and share the moment
(For a moment…)

Help me!

I saw you take the first lingering steps away from me
Towards something, maybe towards someone

I hear you say the words that once changed me

I hear you play that 12-inch I bought you
I hope you feel the same way now as you did then
But you probably don’t feel anything…

I hold your hand so you won’t steal anything
I take your drugs so you can’t feel anything
I hold you tight so you don’t lose everything
But I can’t hold you like this forever
So I guess I’ll lose you…

Kathy’s song (come lie next to me)

Oh my love, it’s time
You know how it feels
You read between the lines
And know me better than I do
I lost again, my friend

You know I’m not a saint
You´ve known it all this time
Still you’ve been waiting for me…

Oh my love, it’s time
You know how it feels
You read between the lines
And know me better than I do
I’m lost again my friend

You know I’m not a saint
You’ve known it all this time
Still you’ve been waiting for me…

Come lie next to me
Know why you and me are one
Come lie next to me
No lies, you and me are one

You know I’m not a saint…

Moment of tranquility

I turn around to talk
I face your eyes
Pride replaces fright
To my surprise…
I feel as I’m falling, and I see

Your soul in your eyes
As I die…

I try to stand tall
You roll your eyes
You feel the same way I do
To my surprise…
I feel as we’re drowning in the deepest sea
You die, you’re gone just like me

Her eyes are starring at me
Empty as the sky
In this moment of tranquility
I realize
This is goodbye…

Fade to black

Life it seems will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters, no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

No one but me can save myself but it’s too late
Now I can’t think, think why I should even try
Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye

Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can’t be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel

Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me but now he’s gone

Paranoia

Chew the pill that tastes like hell, but gives you strength

Embrace the drug that makes you mad, cause still it turns you into
Something else
Feel the need for love grows stronger!
Swap your mind for a mirror-search, and shake until the break of day

One day you’ll realize that you were wrong
And you’ll regret that all this happened
Did it (all) happen? Some day you’ll realize that you were wrong (You’ll be)
Left with paranoia, (as your only friend)

Your mind is full of enemies, the room is full of energies
That want to take control
They’re all around you, and you’re all alone
Your mind is full of enemies, the room is full of energies
Haunting your soul They’re all around you, and you’re on your own

One day you’ll realize that you were wrong
You’ll regret that all this happened
Some day you’ll realize that you were wrong

To be left with Paranoia

Soultaker

You don’t scare me much
By the things you say
Want me to be like you
I choose to live this way

You try to rule my world
And hurt me every day
I want to live my life
You want to take my soul away…

It doesn’t cost me much
To share my thoughts with you
I know you’ll never share
Share my point of view

Its not that easy you know
Not even if you pay
I want to be myself
You want to take my soul away…

You dont scare me much
By the things you say
Just want me to like you
Live my life my way

You try to rule my world
So what can I say?
I want to live my life
You want to take my soul away…

LNDP3

Saw you looking so sad

Like everything is gone
So you left them all
Just leave them all behind
Just realize the water is way over our heads
I don’t worry much, cause I’m halfway dead

So why are you crying?
Why are you crying?

Can you tell me why, can you tell me how?

Can you tell me why aren’t you happy now?
Whatever it is, it’s really over now
Can you tell me why, can you tell me how?

We took them by surprise
By leaving this place
Some thoughts we left behind
Some good and some sad

You should know

I hold you in my arms…

You should know
That I hold you in my arms…
