  • Beyond The Eyelids

    We are none of us…

    If I still believed in me
    I would lie
    If I had another chance I would try
    If I lost my dreams I would blame myself again
    If I were myself I would be someone else

    If I didn’t want to feel
    I would stay
    If I were myself I would be someone else

    Cause I can
    See the truth in the photograph
    And with all that’s mine
    I need to look back inside

    And this day
    New life raced through my mind
    So with all that’s mine
    I need to look back inside

  • Rainbow Box

    Medication Time
    My favorite part
    Hello Rainbow Box
    Need you to survive

    White is for my health
    Blue for happiness
    Thanks to Red I live
    With a shade of smile on my face

    Alpha waves appeared
    I’ve crossed a line
    Sea of memories
    Feel I’m going down

    Achromatic day
    Got choked by colored pills
    I thought that I could
    But the icy water closed over me

    You know
    Want to feel alive
    Need you more
    Anytime

    You know
    Want to feel alive
    Need you more
    Anytime

  • 02 Panic Room

    Used to be my Panic Room
    The other side of me
    Where I slept and woke by turns
    And nothing seemed real

    I was feeding on your life
    Peering through the hole
    And it scared me out
    Someday
    You would knock on my door

    Sweet shelter of mine
    I’m freezing without
    Sweet shelter of mine
    I’m dying without

    Cover up my twisted thoughts
    Shattered all around
    Muffled sounds
    Recurring dreams
    Melatonin smile

    Used to be my 302
    The other side of light
    Trap of my own
    That helped me deal
    With what I lost inside

    Sweet shelter of mine
    I’m freezing without
    Sweet shelter of mine
    I’m dying without
    Sweet shelter of mine

    ***

    I’ve tried to make self-portraits before
    But they always turn out so contrived
    I’ve spent too much time
    Correcting light and shade
    Hiding wrinkles
    Blurring scars

    I’ve tried to make self-portraits before
    Through my eyes
    Just see myself
    Now I know
    I’m not in denial
    That I need someone else
    To see me

  • Schizophrenic Prayer

    So afraid of rejection
    Hide inside ourselves
    Acting like strangers to avoid the pain

    We collect our phobias
    Our sicknesses
    Feel so good only when we can complain

    In your arms
    Feels like a better us
    In your arms

    Dancing around the fire
    Getting drunk with the night
    Nobody is ever who they seem to be

    Hypnos give us your hand
    We so tire of this life
    Need to rest and finally disappear

    In your arms
    Feels like a better us
    In your arms

  • Parasomnia

    Lying here on the floor
    Starting to come around
    What you did Mr. Hyde
    What you got me into this time

    There’s blood on my hands
    Emptiness in my mind
    I don’t remember my name
    Don’t recall who I am

    What’s wrong with me now
    I’m shying from the light
    I start to realize
    Feel I’m falling down
    Every inch of my skin
    Feel the pain I saw
    The self – I was running away from – just back!

    Lost the light of day
    Lost my picture of you
    This nightmare I was afraid of
    Just becoming the truth

    Oh no
    What have I done
    Can’t just put it all behind me
    Can’t afford to lose my mind

    Oh no
    What have I done
    You don’t know how much I need to
    Find a way to bring you back

    Lying here on the floor
    Starting to come around
    What you did Mr. Hyde
    What you got me into this time

    Drugged from sleep
    In front of the mirror
    Shrugging off the darkest fear
    Keep asking myself the same question
    When did I turn to this side of me
    When did I turn to this side

    I need to find a way
    To bring you back again…

  • Through The Other Side

    So welcome to the No Man’s Land
    Where you can finally face yourself
    Fear of feeling something real
    Is your friend now
    There’s no need to run

    So welcome to the No Man’s Land
    Where nothing is as it seems
    Mysteries hidden from you
    Six feet under
    And six feet above

    And to feel your heart this way
    Before it gets too late

    The moon began to split in half
    And the darkness could be touched
    Blindfolded
    You’re trying to find a way
    To the bottom of your soul

    But I can see all your scars
    That you wish you could hide
    And I won’t let you remember
    What it was like
    When you were here before

    And to hear your voice again
    And to feel your touch this way
    Before it gets too late

  • Embryonic

    In a mood like this
    Don’t want to pull away from you
    Don’t want to hurt you
    Shutting you out
    Or pushing you away
    In the mood like this
    I want someplace that is just mine
    And nobody else’s
    Just mine

    Complete indifference
    TV life instead of talk
    We’re drifting apart
    Lipreading
    And so distant now
    I miss what we had
    I miss someplace that was just mine
    And nobody else’s
    Just mine

    Place for me to hide
    Inside of me

    For you
    I will be
    For you
    I will escape again
    Wish to see in your eyes
    That you want us back

    That there’s hope for us

  • Cybernetic Pillow

    Last time I made you up
    You looked so bright
    I was about to believe in angels

    Searching my lucid dream
    Came up against
    Pictures of your imagination

    Feel the pain…

    I’m looking for you now
    Somewhere far-off in my mind
    I wish you told me…everything
    There’s no way I can get around that

    But if this is only a dream
    Does it follow
    One day must we wake up
    But if this is only a dream
    I can just…

    I feel no pain…

  • Ultimate Trip

    Even if I had my life to live
    Over again
    Even if I had my life to live
    Over again
    I would keep coming back to the same place
    Waiting on the shore for me to return

    I’m nourished by
    Your day’s residues
    Seeing through the veil
    Unclose your mind

    I’m the reflection of
    All your waking lives
    Narcoleptic sins
    Unclose your mind

    In the depth of me
    Can control your life
    With your shell around
    Unclose your mind

    I’m your amber light
    Way of passing time
    Movement of your eye
    Unclose your mind

    I’m your better life
    Hidden desire
    Never Neverland
    Unclose your mind

    We could be so good
    Broken looking-glass
    So much left unsaid
    Fearless on top… Fearless on top…
    Fearland at heart… Fearland at heart… Fearland at heart…

    And now you will be my soul mate
    I’m going to make you up again…
    It’s ok now, but…
    I don’t know how long it needs to last Sooner or later
    I will need you to come and get me out of here
    Sooner or later
    I will need you to come and get me
    Sooner or later
    I will need you

    Sooner or later

    Closed inside
    I have my life back

    Trapped inside
    I give my life back
