Track Name: Falling of the Gods
Been banging my head on the wall
Trying to make some sense of it all
Years and years of this growing affliction
A big imagination against a brick wall

I feel it coming
I can stop running

I’m oblivious to your pedestal
It’s the falling of the gods
And you’ll go down with them

I cry to the sound of your blade
Only your fire could purify my name
Truly believing in this false aggravation
A whole new stage to your mental rape

Hear me calling
My tongue is burning

I’m oblivious to your pedestal
It’s the falling of the gods
And you’ll go down with them

Please purify my name
My rage is taking shape
Please come now and purify my name
Track Name: Sick of You
Waiting for you
I’m here waiting for you
I’m still here, in my blue
Death will come
You will rot on the ground
And all that you had will be unbound

I’m so so sick of you

I’m your slave
Promise I’ll behave
‘Til I cut you with my blade
Let it all bleed out
Giving you a second sight
Sickening me with secret delight

I’m so so sick of you

The endless shade
Of this sad parade
Nothing else could ever be saved
Coming from the past
Dream again and time has passed
There is peace in your eternal rest

I’m so so sick of you (can’t deny it)
Track Name: Sleep
Hate, I’m holding on to hate
Afraid I could relate
To the monster that’s inside of me
I can’t forget
What you said I wouldn’t do
Right then I did to you
Clueless of the love I left behind

Once again
Every word is just a word that covers up the dirt
So this is all you’re worth
Not me, I’m dead under the sea of lies and deceit
What can you see when you shut your eyes to…

Sleep, sleep, lay your head down, lay your head down

Stay, I’m begging you to stay
While time drags away
The happiness inside of me, it’s a disgrace
How… it’s easy to be mean
As cold as a machine
Spitting in your very pretty face

Once again
Every word is just a word that covers up the dirt
So this is all you’re worth (you filthy little whore)
Not me, I’m dead under the sea of lies and deceit
What can you see when you shut your eyes?

Sleep, sleep, lay your head down, lay your head down

Careful with the broken glass
The mirror’s gone, we’re alone at last
We’re finished now, there’s nothing left
You’ve put a bullet right through my chest

Sleep, sleep, lay your head down, lay your head down
Track Name: Accept
This is my way of being a poet
A beggar, a thief and a judge
This is the way I become better
At self-pity, hiding in my shell
This is the way my life is tamed
My heart has peace and I come clean
This is the way I can explain
You evolve and I’m always the same

This is the way I become something
In everyone’s eyes and ears
This is the way I justify
The vague and empty passing of the years
This is the way I pass the test
I look straight down to all the rest
This is the way I keep on running
Instead of just giving up this craving

This is the way I can feel shame
This is the way I can blame zeus
This is the way I can breathe
This is the way I’ll accept, I accept
Track Name: Crystal Ball
Here’s your candlestick baby
Now you can light it up
It’s worth every tear shed upon it
Go and find the problem

You need to solve
So we can evolve
It’s hard to think inside this crystal ball
I’ve said and done
And bought the sun
I’ve been the same
I’ve cursed and blessed everyone
Cursed and blessed everyone

What’s your reason for living?
Where’s your sweet little home?
I’m becoming exactly
The one I’ve set out to burn

You need to solve
So we can evolve
It’s hard to think inside this crystal ball
I’ve said and done
And bought the sun
I’ve been the same
I’ve cursed and blessed everyone
Cursed and blessed everyone

Oh my, what have we done?
What have we done?
What have we done?
Track Name: Clocks
You can actually go screw yourself
‘Cause I’ll survive without your help
I almost drown in all my debt
And all I get are deep regrets

All my strength is my own
Can you just leave me alone?

I gave all my blood, gave all my sweat
All you cared about were your benefits

All my strength is my own
Can you just leave me alone?

Clocks tic tic tac
Clocks tic tic tac
When do you need payback?
When’s it due?
Track Name: Broken
I’ll be quiet
I’m a shadow of dust
Hours, hours
Forgotten Promised Land
Have I gone insane
In this hollow show of ours?

‘Cause I’m broken, I’m so broken
Have I really sold my soul?

Pick me up
Lay me in the dirt
Hours, hours
Take my heart out
Hit me to the floor
In this feeble love of ours

‘Cause I’m broken, I’m so broken
Have I really sold my soul?

Somewhat brilliant but erased
The catch is better than the chase
I believed in all this shit
Just to see it’s made of tears
Where’s the dignity in all of this
Shall I kiss, shall I kiss, shall I kiss, it all goodbye

‘Cause I’m broken, I’m so broken
Have I really sold my soul?
Track Name: Crazy (feat. Vítor Franco)
I belong to this dark world
Where you cannot reach
Your lips cherry blossom
Your hair dipped in bleach
The cross on your chest
Burning deep in my skin
As we lay down to rest
My nightmares so grim

And I’m crossing over to the otherside…
I’m crossing over…

Crazy, you know I’m crazy
Don’t wanna mess with me
Crazy, you know I’m crazy
These hands could part the seas

A mind full of hatred
The putrid insides
From something so sacred
There’s nowhere to hide
Completely disgusted
Just thrown off your feet
The nos and the whys
At the moment we meet

And I’m crossing over to the otherside…
I’m crossing over…

Crazy, you know I’m crazy
Don’t wanna mess with me
Crazy, you know I’m crazy
These hands could part the seas

“We all wear masks, and the time comes
when we cannot remove them
without removing some of our own skin” *

Darlin’, I’m crazy
You don’t want to mess with me
Darlin’, I’m crazy
These hands could part the seas

Crazy, you know I’m crazy
Don’t wanna mess with me
Crazy, you know I’m crazy
These hands could part the seas


*Quote by Andre Berthiaume
Track Name: Receiver
You can say whatever, whatever you damn want
Nothing will make me see
Try to make me over and over again, again

They can do whatever, whatever they hell want
This ship has sailed…
This bridge has burned, has burned

I’m a receiver, I’m looking for relief
Sitting in my throne
I’m reborn
Leave now, leave now

I’m unique and perfect, as far as meets the eye
I’ve joined the confusion, I’ve made up in my own mind
See me please just see me, don’t interrupt me
You mother… lover.

I’m a receiver, I’m looking for relief
Sitting in my throne
I’m reborn
Leave now, leave now

Cross your fingers and hope to live
I’m a receiver
Cross your fingers and hope to live
I’m a receiver, I’m a receiver
I’m a receiver, I’m a reliever
Track Name: Incarnate
Hoping, leave it, come here, incarnate
Endless argue, I can't stand you, leave me alone

So deep, so deep

Sit here, gently, keep me, safe and warm
Instant silence, holy violence, hearts turn to stone

Slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly

They worried and lied and protected our minds
They sinned and they cried, afraid to leave the line
They loved and they died, and they tried and they tried
They loved and they died, and they tried and they tried

So deep, so deep
Slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly…
Track Name: Shoot Them Down
Take care of yourself
It’s a crazy world out there
All those enemies around you
They wanna see you fall to the ground

What can you do, what can you do if they come for you?

Hide, open your eyes
They can tell lies, they can tell lies
Search for a friend
A friend who’ll heal you in the end

But in the end the only friend you’ve got is you

They’re comin’
Get your gun
You gotta, gotta, gotta shoot them down

But in the end the only friend you’ve got is you

Shoot them
Shoot the motherfuckers
Down, down, down
Track Name: Bed
I can’t find the words
To say what’s swarming inside
I can’t explain the naked influence
Of your cold deep eyes
While waiting for a better day
Between decades of decay
I win the courage to think everything’s ok

Still you make me jump off the chair
Still you make me want to stay in bed

You’re an inspiration
To dramatic substance
Unwilling to solve itself
I really thought I could beat myself

Don’t want to get up
I’m done I give up
Don’t make me wake up
I’m so fed up

Still you make me jump off the chair
Still you make me want to stay in bed

Stay in bed, stay in bed…
Track Name: The Apprentice
If I could I’d try hard to survive
Inside this side o’ my life I’m surprised
Since I entered the skies in your eyes
Silencing the sighs within my spine

God, I’m deranged and I feel so mistaken
God, I’m insane and I feel so awaken

If I could I’d change and be so nice
Instead I’m sincerely mystified
Without a place to hide all my might
Begging for a swift and sweet reply

God, I’m deranged and I feel so mistaken
God, I’m insane and I feel so awaken

I’m an apprentice, I’m learning to fly
I’m swinging between the hurt and the lies
‘Cause I’m an apprentice, I’ve studied both sides
Inspired to live but yearning to die
I’m yearning to die
