Track Name: Quiet Assassin
don't waste second thoughts
be your own savior
all the options
line up in front of you
but you get high on pure white
you desperate seeker
red lipstick
on a mouth full lies

now she's pulled you in
and sucks you dry
"just a little more
faith in god"
it's a make believe
a bitter seed
that won't grow a tree
one life
no respawn
time flies
and you're afraid to be
here
beyond all thinking
where bodies 're melting
you're the same as me

you've lost all ambitions
in this shared room
your friends are fading
fast and way too soon
stop the sentimental talk
it's irrelevant
let us form an end
out of something true

she's a quiet
quiet assassin
she's a quiet
(do you think you know?)
assassin
(do you think you it's real?)
she's a quiet
(do you think you're in control?)
you're in her fucking palm
do you think you're in control?

one life
no respawn
time flies
and you're afraid to be
here
beyond all thinking
where bodies 're melting
you're the same as me

she's a quiet assassin
Track Name: Body Tracks
this is a warm welcome
I'm utterly surprised

but I can't suppress the pressure
that's building at the base of my skull

what are we waiting for?
get it on
what are we waiting for?
let's get it on

you're not really interested
all this drivel leads to nowhere
paralyzing ostentation of yourself

you'll find my body tracks

I can't fight the feeling
the floor becomes the ceiling
I'll bleed it out
a self-explaining tragedy
an homage to cain's heresy

you're not really interested
all this drivel leads to nowhere
paralyzing ostentation of yourself

you'll find my body tracks

you're quite a doll
perfect cut-out
splendent whore

covered my eyes
buried the hope
now I'll neutralize pain
this place smells like hell
you'll have to force me to inhale

you were never interested
all this drivel leads to nowhere
paralyzing ostentation of yourself

you'll find my body tracks
Track Name: Fragment I: Membrane
all the noise
all the pain of life
collides right here

pounding hearts
pulsating flesh
full of gracious fear

black eyes
stare into a
vicious grin

the shame of a lifetime
slowly digs its way
under my skin
Track Name: An Answer too Complex to Question
pain
you offer
yet I refuse
but sooner or later I'll accept the laughter

mistress
come on
sentence me
question identity
I'll come up with an answer too complex to question
suck it

pedants eyes shall fall from the sky
while your careless irreverence's peeling my skin

and who I am
nor who you are
matters in this game
you order
I obey

never underestimate
the destructive power of change
lately, all my precious thespian talents fail

pain
oh, let me suffer
it's the sweetest disguise of all

well, you're the obsession I'll never overcome
a twelve-part confession
seals: we all fall down
sometime

my tongue is an awful friend
misery my only company

regression
Track Name: Portrait of Gala
I'd do anything for love
she said

the limitation in your mind
is one you've set yourself

the walls are getting closer
this home's become my cage
she yelled at me

the more i try to focus
the more we blur away
she knew I was lost

no I can't stay around here
I've grown out of this skin

I'll do anything for love
I scream and shout

I've broken the limitation in my head
too late - she's gone

there's no more time to focus
it all just slips away

now
in sepia I see her majesty
hail to the queen

in sepia I see her majesty
hail to the queen

how close is the end?
oh I'll stop to breath
how close can I get?
no you'll never leave
how close?

in sepia I see her majesty
hail to the queen
Track Name: Hybris
all in all
it's just a payback
for the mess you have left
for the mess that I'm in

all in all
it's just a paycheck
I now wander with god
into the wild I belong

I can't find my feet
Track Name: Fragment II: Anima
silence
we'll bail you out
this is what we stand for
the meaning

you've turned us inside out
now we're well prepared for
the ending
we won't compete
Track Name: Permanent Transient
Oh, I bit my tongue Oh, I faced a zillion standoffs
faceless
traveled endless miles
with every step in search of answers
well, the answer is that
I cannot keep up with you
sacred eye
I cannot smother this emptiness
no more show

bones, they break
as time fades
away these streets have cleared my view
I'm wide awake

take a look at this house
it's full of broken hearts
and every room's a proof
for what I am not
seems like I've been growing old in timeless space

you and I - we'll make it through the night

it's really worth a try
I'm sick of my sleepy eyes
we'll run away

a house doesn't make a home

I caught a glimpse into the gloom
and realized that I'm a permanent transient
Track Name: Drift Away
you could take the action now
you could take the action
but you frown and fall to pieces
sad testament of a life doused with lies

head for the exit now
head for the exit
but you freeze and get replaced by others
the captain sinks with his bottled ship

but I guess that's what you do
that's just something that you do
remain in silence

there she stands and lingers on
her whole life is just based on
these few minutes and thoughts
oh, I thought I know her
I'm anxious and striving to get away

I must center myself
it's a waiting game
how to stand all this shit another day?
no empathy my father fails I sense
whatever I say
she'll drift away

we owe you something
we owe you something real

you could take the action now
you could take the action
but you frown and fall to pieces
I'm driving out there
I'm striving to get away

I must center myself
it's a waiting game
how to stand all this shit another day?
no empathy my father fails I sense
whatever I say
she'll drift away
Track Name: Lusca
this eloquent elegance
sings me to sleep every note an ode to what I'll never ever be

tranquilized head
weighs heavy on her chest
breathing deep
her softest scent fills me with the warmth I've missed

make your way
through to me
something pure
is ours to see

time took me here
to search and pick up the parts of hundreds of hearts you once possessed
I guess they're still beating in your chest

make your way
through to me
something pure
is ours to see

make your way
honesty
nothing lasts
nothing's safe

from what once was
to what will never be
there's a bridge
there's this bridge

where are you ?

all I can see is
eight arms
widely stretched
into
the sky
all I can hear is
three pounding hearts
screaming goodbye

Lusca's here
Track Name: Fragment III: Closure
we washed the core
we built an end
another mime
a false pretense
you think it'll preserve us from time

a secret voice
invites us in
another game
another win
no - you can no more decide on what's right

farewell my dear friend
I'm not supposed to speak out loud
that I am what you've made me
it's the only truth I know
but still I try
and still you lie to me
Track Name: Cliffhanger
seven more feet
just seven more feet there's the edge
take a drag and gaze into the chasm of perception

seven more feet
just seven more feet
you've found
the path of escape
a firm route out
tell me, how high did you think 'd you get?
how far did they drag you away?

It's still you I feel here
the same old rush

you're a bird
flying up high
you chose the saddest way of saying goodbye
you're a mystery that reveals the unexpected
lord I twist 'n' turn and hope it all makes sense in the end

seven more feet just seven more feet there's the edge
an insight in pure isolated noise

tell me, how high did you think you'd get?
how far did they drag you away?

you're a bird
flying up high
you chose the saddest way of saying goodbye
you're a mystery that reveals the unexpected
lord I twist 'n' turn and hope it all makes sense in the end
for you

you're a bird
flying up high
you chose the saddest way of saying goodbye
you're a mystery that reveals the unexpected
lord I twist 'n' turn and hope it all makes sense in the end

you're a mystery that reveals the unexpected
you're a sign in the air

you're the sound in the air
the colors I bleed
the symphony I feel

you're the sum of all signs
