Metaepitome 19:19
The games behind, the wise man said, is played. Behind the curtain veil his eyes can't see What his mind won't recieve his time is out The rain must fall to put out the fire like any dying man would agree forgiveness is a mighty power, ..it finally occured to me how dark. IT can be in the shadows. The war. Cries are deafening darkness. Death. Lies and deceit. Oh heavens rain on me.. And he remembers: 1. A time before he was 2. A part he had 3. A scheme But time it fades his memory --> it changes. When tomorrow comes. The rain must fall To put out the fire, like. "Any dying man would agree forgiveness is a mighty power!" -it finally occured to me. How dark? It can be in the shadows! The war cries are deafening, darkness, death, lies, and deciet. Oh heavens rain on me.. Lately he has been seen in his garden Plucking the flowers Desperately wasting his time with: -"How could I go back to yesteryear?" -"Now look. Please understand. it's not like actual time were talking here. It's just that.. you know.. those things you leave behind.. ..Have a tendency to sneak up on you Mind you its not all bad, like, some of it is, well, positive and that's what I'm going on about!" The world in his hands is twisted To emphasize this twist of fate A projection of what he sees no longer sufficed to him a remedy, a fix to feed your head. Like the doormouse said: -"Tomorrow rain must fall" He looks around with a passive frown At the rotten streets of this unholy town The distance is a million miles His sight is weak, and he cannot see The greener fields and the calmest streams And the winding road leading straight to it He is coming to his senses Now the awakening is so surreal to me A co-existence of all things real and all things unreal clear as it can be So brace yourself the time has come To climb the wall down, down, down.. Yeah to climb the wall To see it falling down To look in to the future Yeah to climb the wall To see it falling down To look in to the future In the silence of the heart where no prying eye can see wait.. there's something down there? and if there is, it is not of me, and thus cannot claim dominion but it does, over me There's movement in the dark ears ringing of fear the bells sound a warning of news that came too late the ground begins to shudder as the enemy awakes I am lust and fear and hate I bring lies, unjustice and death the age of war is at hand so pick your side! run to the hills if you will, but know that you cant hide an enemy inside not on your own with me by your side you might have a chance come along for the ride -I promise a good one. so (I) began the fall so (I) began the falling down no looking to the future The way it turned out is never quite what it seemed to be a way out to war ride on a storm god knows the poor need ..a new morning

Lead me through to emptiness Hear me now I take my final breath All in all I'm quite amused Petrified but in a happy mood Rest assured it's still alive Through the lives it left behind and locked inside Though it's cold and lonely now In a while the sun won't have a chance to hide No more You caught me in a hole again Compensate the difference and descend Lift me up I'll start again Even though I know I'm still the same I confess I haven't been so sincere I've been lost and I've lived in fear All the times that I was given a choice No I would not hear no ones advice Despite I knew the price Crazily I thought there was another way All the paths seemed to lead away Now it's over there is nothing to say Just leave it blank and call it a day Despite I knew the price A lucid dream of silent skies is all that's needed for a beginning A wretched lie or is it truth instead? Reason fails to answer this Lead me out of it or leave me in 'till the sun is dead and only dark remains Still it's more than I understand But I can't admit defeat 'till time is gone Time can heal a wound or take away Everything depends on time ticking away Time can stay

My eyes are burning for what I see I can't believe what forces are at work here if I see why should I believe once again I'm standing at the crossroads and I sigh why can't I decide my sweet vision of freedom is a butterfly's cry from the realities of life my heart was yearning for the feeling of enlightenment but when I'm immersed in it is it real or foul deceit once again I'm standing at the crossroads and I sigh why can't I decide my sweet vision of freedom is a butterfly's cry from the realities of life no it won't be the last lost illusion dis-enchanted I am defending no it won't be the last impending the ending in the sweet days of spring just as the sun was starting to kick in yes I was a fool and I always imagined it so that all the cards I needed would be in my hands but time it flows through our hand like sand just as I identified the moment as a beginning well that was when it already started to end and a feeling was growing inside of me no it won't be the last lost illusion dis-enchanted I am defending no it won't be the last impending the ending no it won't be the last lost illusion dis-enchanted I am defending no it won't be the last impending the ending I must be learning ah yes, because it's fading once again I'm standing at the crossroads and I sigh why can't I decide my sweet vision of freedom is a butterfly's cry from the realities of life

A Method... 04:30
I really shouldn't feel bad after all So I'll keep on smiling At least I never lied to get along We're still fine so I hold on When driving through the dark is all we know Oh headlights please guide me home But home is just a dark and empty room Why try at all? It seems to me that dreams are all we own Now that we're older I can't believe the time where has it gone When was our moment? Time couldn't even pause or stop or rewind So I close my eyes and sleep Sleep through a day or two and find Another reason why I never knew quite where I failed To see in front of me Suddenly I'm blinded by the sun Infinity laughs at me How can I breath I'm blinded by the sun A million possibilities, never me I'm blinded by the sun Borderlines of sanity and reality What have we become?

March, march knowing well certain death awaits us Onwards, onwards The masters yell from their ivory towers Cowards! Blind men lead the blind men dreaming of arrival, of asylum, of revival Seek, seek and seek you shall 'till flesh and bones are rot and mould Stake, stake, stake your claim Rape your land I'll do the same The same! Cogs and wheels of blood we are mechanised, baptized in fire Sacrifice your inner self for the greater good, for the common wealth For greed and lust we march We march for fear 'till death we march The world commands us to Crawl through this earth 'till darkness us devour Don't leave me out Fear of darkness Illusion Crawl with me I'm lost I'm getting colder Grind, grind into dust From whence thou came return thou must Decay! A Morbid Mistress and Father Time molest their offspring: You and I Self inflicted wounds of hatred transform us into drones Faceless censors keep us all in line The screaming beast of eternal lies commands us to Crawl through this earth 'till darkness us devour Don't leave me out Fear of darkness Illusion Crawl with me I'm lost Step forward and show yourself Oh you who can claim to be free of bondage and other such things Share with us the wisdom of your ways Or stay hidden for the rest of your days Away, be gone, can't you read the signs? Were you not told to question the lies you we're taught as a child Or do you cling to a utopian view? If so, I should very much like to witness this delight A sweet delusion of senses quite extraordinary Where one might bask in the light of innocent child-like cruelty Awake, awake! The authorities arrive This will not do, they cry Where is your freedom now? Will you not fight? Will you fall in the hands of your peers or fall back into the cave you left at first light Crawl through this earth 'till darkness us devour Don't leave me out We crawl through this earth 'till darkness us devour Don't leave me now I'm lost

Meet me far far away On a dark island How did we go astray? Where were we taken? To be lost in To be caught up and found Inside I am Mortified and safe in isolation Inside I am Yes it's you who lost and left me And it's true I'm past being lonely Coming through from the outside It's nothing new there's no escape route 'Till finally the curtain calls And we're not here after all Lay me down Lay me down in the shade Silence invited Seems that we meet again My quiet friend So far divided Our bodies have caged us in Inside I am taken hostage Physics have me restrained Inside I am Even clouds fly away Even dark shadows fade Seek and you'll find again Reach out and grasp it Stay connected Tomorrow can change us all Inside I am unaffected Defiantly standing tall Inside I am Yes it's you who lost and left me And it's true I'm past being lonely Coming through from the outside It's nothing new there's no escape route So, finally I'm over board A captain on the shore Reaching for the floor The writings on the wall Find yourself alone Arrive where you belong To one and each their own We're not here after all

Entropy 08:02
These days offer nothing for me I'm settled in my ways Keep wasting away, erasing all evidence of change 'Till these days turn to silence Close the door Fade to insignificance For if we tried less to resist to preserve these days Despite all the trying entropy increases still Still everything seems to keep functioning So why all the fighting, if indeed no one wins? Since everything leads to more disorder Entropy This road seems to keep on winding leading us astray No future, no destination Uncertainty will make this world one day turn to violence, turn to war until all that was before Is divided 'till we are torn 'till we are no more Despite all the trying entropy increases still Still everything seems to keep functioning So why all the fighting, if indeed no one wins? Since everything leads to more disorder Entropy

Dawn 15:07
blinded by the vision of power i was until i defected until you see what you have become you wont know youre infected you can keep on running but you aint getting away keep on scratching but the itch it wont go is it a matter of time? no, its a matter of faith the signs are clear but they match in direction breaking thru a barrier none can see the poison is injected into your veins please leave me be, youre in its grip hey now you know that the end is near, yes and the thought of going is ever present in your head and you think they are out to own you its over the horizon hey now so if you want to break me up until im down no i wont be there wake me up when i am gone no i wont be there night until dawn but the night is still young (like your face (?)) A crisis is about to unfold, tonight im gonna prove it Alleviate the cold and then let it be, go find another fool yo Hey now you spell another problem for this human being, Set another date for the end of reality. And how can some people say life is free? and how can they give it away? Why wont anyone tell me? so if you want to break me up until im down no i wont be there wake me up when i am gone no i wont be there night until dawn but the night is still young (like your face (?)) oh how the time was spent and what it all had meant do you cast away do you block it out beyond any doubt would vanity and convenience conspire to lose it all what abomination leaves the body but devours the soul? everything under the sun is burning up come hear the call come turn it up then say the end is near enough one day the sky shall open up and rain will wash the unholy town now heed the "warning : ending" now 'tis the last illusion to ever fall you're not listening so if you want to break me up until im down no i wont be there wake me up when i am gone no i wont be there night until dawn but the night is still young warning its ending tomorrow its so real more love descending the morning is surreal
