(Per)version of a Truth

When everything is lost (peel it all away)
Haunting us with questions (asking)
Will we...
Ever find the smile inside (no), is it hidden
Behind the sweating eyes (bleeding)
Dead inside a scream that's pouring from me

I'm planted in this skin, (constricting and pulling me)
This dirty filthy skin(rancid and stinging me)
I burn behind the walls,(that have become my world)
The bearer of a gift, fuck your gift

Truth does not exist,
But the lies do......

They're buried in the skin,

Evolved

Perversion of a truth I'm stuck there,
(Inside of lies buried in me, why)
Alone
Born into a world never asked to be here
(Try to forget truth doesn't exist, truth)
(It doesn't exist, it doesn't exist, truth)
Daath......

always inside a tragedy (things never seem to go away)
A room that I remember, (portraits I carry)
Try letting go of this space (bad habits can't kick me)
The fool that fell from heaven, heaven...

Perversion of a truth I'm stuck there,
(Inside of lies buried in me, why)
Alone
Born into a world never asked to be here
(Try to forget truth doesn't exist, truth)
(It doesn't exist, it doesn't exist, truth)

Maybe we're all the children of a star,
Misguided in direction, our misdirection
Pardon me while I pray for light

I'm not the only one,
that walks between the rain, there are many.
I'm not the only one,
When everything is lost that doesn't surrender

Perversion of a truth
I'm stuck there (Inside of lies buried in me, why)
Alone
Blind walking through a world
I never asked to be here

Versions of the truth...
I'm not the only one...
Lies!

A Key to Nothing

killing
murder... murders in the hands... of motion... as
it seems to be
i'm washing my hands, of everything...
of everything we are

Goodbye

Pendulum stops and falls away
Life sifted through like sand
Storms of summer rain
Flooding lifelines in our hands
Our skin of blood and bone
Gently close to dust and blows
Our home of blood and bone
Pulls through the ground and so....
Unstoppable
These feelings of loss
So unstoppable
Egging through to the marrow of bones
Just let it go
Pain willing in your eyes
Just let me go
Dry the tears that fall

And remember
When everything is typical
Ill be the wish upon a star
I've found a place so magical
Goodbye....

See you another goodbye
I..See you another goodbye
See you another goodbye
See you another...

Peeling killers rise
Precious circle is mended
Sense vertigo in you
So Ill be your halo
So unstoppable
My love for you
So unstoppable
Memories of you

Just remember
When everything is difficult
Ill be the wish upon a star
I've found a place so magical
But still please.

Someone, Help Me, Grab Me, Save Me Now,
Distrust, Darkened, Daylight, Ive lost sight
Someone, Help Me, Grab Me, Save Me Now,
Distrust, Darkened, Daylight, Ive lost sight

Remember
That nothing here seems typical
Ill be the wish upon a star
Ive lost something so magical
And gone so far
Just remember
When everything is difficult
Ill be shining from a far
When it feels like things have gone away
Ill see you again

Ill see you again, Goodbye
Ill see you again, Goodbye
Ill see you again, Goodbye
Ill see you again, Goodbye
Ill see you again, Goodbye....

Mercy, Severity

We've come here, from so far away,
I can save you,
If you leave it all behind
This suffering's, been far too long,
Would you take a trip with me
On the back of a star,
I feel like earth's gravity is just here to pull us down.

Mother of creation wait, embrace the souls of a lost world
Carry them away,
Darkness negative receptive,
Pour firmament between our waters
Separate the space
Mother of destruction wait with a belt of
Skulls strap me down
And send the ship away,
Progress with the process, mine the souls
From their casts
Pour form and reshape

This dark womb,
Wraps and covets me,
Redefining understanding, if you open
Up the heart,
Nurturing, this phenomenon,
We can carry you on our wings, our wings
Through the dark
Lightning flashes of insight,
Into the mirth of a dark sky,
Pain of division is nothing,
Joy of dissolution is everything

Mother of creation wait, embrace the souls of a lost world
Carry them away,
Darkness negative receptive,
Pour firmament between our waters
Separate the space
Mother of destruction wait with a belt of
Skulls strap me down
And send the ship away,
Progress with the process, mine the souls
From their casts
Pour form and reshape

Portal sits deep within the eye,
The eye of yin's severity,
Rewards understanding
Portal sits deep within the eye
The eye of yin's severity,
Rewards understanding

Blackness consumes body comforts core of
Nothing...

Mother I can remember, a vault of security,
Can you take me away,
Would you take me away,
Won't you take me away
...Away

Not Falling

Always, known in, all my time,
A little left of center now
Reflect as I realize,
That all I need is to find the middle pillar path to sit like the sun by a star in the sky and
just be.
Sinners, casting stones at me

I... I stand, not crawling, not falling down
I... I bleed the demons that drag me down
I... I stand, (for nothing), not crawling, (the center), not falling down (of calms within the eye)
I... I'll bleed, (for no one), The demons, (but myself), that pull me down (for me and no one else)

Goodbye, sunshine, I've put it out again, sad
I'm over, personalities, conflicting, I don't need you, or anyone, but me, I'll just be, living
my own life
I feel my glowing center grow, infecting
I feel alive
Shovel dirt over lime, plant it in myself to sit like a seed under covers of earth and just be
Sinners, pointing fingers at me

I... I stand, (for nothing), not crawling, (by myself), not falling down
I... I bleed, (for no one), the demons, (but myself), that drag me down
I... I stand, (for nothing), not crawling, (the center), not falling down (of calms within the eye)
I... I'll bleed, (for no one), the demons, (but myself), that pull me down (for me and no one else)

Come play kill
Refuse my body, refuse my shadow
Stond cold will
Refuse to lead this, refuse to follow
Bitter pills
Refuse to feed this, refuse to swallow
I'm fueled godless

Come play, come play
KILL
Just be, just be

I... I stand, (for nothing), not crawling, (by myself), not falling down
I... I bleed, (for no one), the demons, (but myself), that drag me down
I... I stand, (for nothing), not crawling, (the center), not falling down (of calms within the eye)
I... I'll bleed, (for no one), the demons, (but myself), that drag me down (for me and no one else)

On The Move

Pack up my shit I'm on the road like Kerouac (whooo)
Found tranquility in the cover that holds me (down down)
People I've query I'm always on the move (get more)
Set it up pack it up giddy up giddy up, whooo!

I love it, whooo!
I hate it

Rolling Stones gather no moss, so lets go
Not a life, not a love
Not a motherfuckin' minute to spare (god damn)
3 65 24/7 on the move (hey)
Gotta go gotta go gotta hurry up and get there (now)

I'm living' the life (whooo!)
Without the life (god damn)
Gotta make it today to live up on the stage (hey)
So I'm blowing it up like a high school game

I know my place is on this road, my sad story
Reflect on all the things that fell behind, can't be sorry
I will follow my life and all the curves that it throws me
Just when I think that I've found my home - I'm gone

When my worlds only gonna P to TM
We'll be choppin' him dead inside, until I'm dead (yeah)
Keep my hat on my head can't hang it without a home (god damn)
Gotta push it more and this way I am alone (hey)

I'm living' the life (whooo!)
Without the life (god damn)
Gotta make it today to live up on the stage (hey)
So I'm blowing it up like a high school game

I know my place is on this road, my sad story
Reflect on all the things that fell behind, can't be sorry
I will follow my life and all the curves that it throws me
Just when I think that I've found my home - I'm gone

This circus cycle family
If faces aren't so strange
Faces becoming more familiar
Day by day
Sharing becomes closer
Day by day
The world becomes our home

DAY - we'll turn up with nothing
NIGHT - but we'll be back sometime
DAY - if its ready I'm ready
NIGHT - I've lived a life today
DAY - I'm healing the bleeding
NIGHT - dead now to back alive
DAY - I've been through another
DAY - I'm living the life, yeah right

I know my place is on this road - I can't be sorry
Reflect on all the words that fell aside - my tragedy
I have followed my life and all the curves that it's thrown me
Now at least I know I've found my home
Where I belong!

Shadow of a Man

Mirror mirror... Upon the wall I'm asking you
"Who is the most confused of them all?"
Mirror mirror... Subservient twin screams back at me "You!"
You sick flawless mime,
I want to break you
Yeah, you're a clever one...

Do you reflect me?
Or do I reflect you?
Are you inside of another world?
I wanna break through!
Yeah, you're a clever one...

Is this a tool, can I step through, to find another plane,
Or just a shadow of a man
A superficial tool, to support the vanity of weak,
When you don't love yourself

If life's as painful on your side, I'll break your
Existence and cut through mine
You're a clever one

Are you a tool, can I step through, to find another plane,
Or just a shadow of a man
Are you my brother, you look like me,
Trapped inside another world my lost twin
Just a superficial tool, to support the vanity of weak,
When you don't love yourself

Mirror mirror upon the wall, am I the reflection
Of you,
Mirror mirror upon the wall, are you staring back through
Understanding has no place within my world
On your side

Are you a tool, can I step through, to find another plane,
Or just a shadow of a man
Are you my brother, you look like me,
Trapped inside another world my lost twin

Are you a tool, can I step through, to find another plane,
I'm just a shadow of a man
Just a superficial tool, to support the vanity of weak,
When you don't love yourself

Silenced

Sticker this, censor this, ban this
We've got something to say
Police this, condemn this, damn this
We'll be heard anyway
Middle finger is the flag that I wave when I'm silenced...

Listen here...

Is it a possibility?
That we're all just equal,
Slam the power down
Abusing...
Does it piss you off to be beat at your own game
You lead us with false morals and shelter reality
No more...we're not buying your product when
You're selling
The words preaching silence

Insult me in my home,
When you were never invited,
To live life on your curve
Frustrating,
Throw sticks into the spokes,
To relieve insecurities,
Stifle all ascension and sticker our freedom
Of speech

Sticker this, censor this, ban this
We've got something to say
Police this, condemn this, damn this
We'll be heard anyway
Middle finger is the flag that I wave when I'm silenced...

Don't tell me what I want
Don't tell me what I need
Don't tell me how I need to feel
I feel, goddamn nothing
Dig the eyes out of my face and I can still see right
Fuckin' through you,
Fuck you and everything you are,
I'm me, we're us and that's all
Closed mind with a forum to criticize,
Keep your policy and I've got mine
Exploit me, fabricate your lies
We empower these cowards just to be left in
Silence

Listen here...

Stand on my soapbox,
And speak my own peace,
Whatever you may think,
It's real,
Prevail through what is me,
And step on your beliefs
Thieving spineless sellouts, robbing our integrity

Sticker this, censor this, ban this
We've got something to say
Police this, condemn this, damn this
We'll be heard anyway
Middle finger is the flag that I wave when I'm ...

Skrying

This puzzle's dead inside
Missing pieces growing eyes,
Mystery
Little girls severity,
Little boys begging mercy
Sticks break on me
Cost of life at 23
Price of pain a golden ring
All crimson
Melting body rubber world
Battle axe with locks of curls
Introverted

My cost, the price of a broken doll, can you
Remember that place
The place you would go to make things okay,

1000 points for insect stings,
Glue my spirit, break my wings,
Misery
Libido steams infectious whore,
Cauterize and forge the sword,
Remember killing.

Children, learning the secret knock, a nickel
To enter that place,
The place you would go to make things okay,
My cost, the price of a broken doll, can you
Remember that place
The place you would go to take pain away,

Games of passion taste so sweet
Cut his throat and slaughter meat,
My secrets.
Seven heads for seven seas,
Darkened voices plead disease
Dismembering me

Children, wrestle to seal the bag, storing it deep
In that place,
The place you would go and try to escape
Children, learning the secret knock, a nickel
To enter that place,
The place you would go to make things okay,
My cost, the price of a broken doll, can you
Remember that place
The place you would go to take pain away,

Skrying through reflections in a pool,
I see death coming, mowing down,
Do you remember the bedroom,
Was it your cell or was it your tomb,

You're living through my hell

Children, learning the secret knock, a nickel
To enter that place,
The place you would go to make things okay,
My cost, the price of a broken doll, can you
Remember that place
The place you would go to take pain away

Solve et Coagula

Fire, fire
I dissolve and solidify,
Destroy to recreate,
Disassemble to assemble something pure,
Our rubic sol-ve-et-co-ag-u-la
Kill to be born again, cycled a thousand times

Fire, planetary alchemy,
Fire, the time is here now
Fire, four corners to rise
Fire rise!
Fire, there's always loss within,
Fire, the cleansing it's time
Fire, shooting arrows to the sky
Fire

I construct a new institution
Not out of bricks, iron, cement, concrete
Or steel
Our rubic sol-ve-et-co-ag-u-la
Distill to purify,
We've done it a thousand times

Fire, planetary alchemy,
Fire, the time is here now
Fire, four corners to rise
Fire rise!
Fire, there's always loss within,
Fire, the cleansing it's time
Fire, shooting arrows to the sky
Fire

Burn, bleed all the lives of life, ascend to
The sky
Burn, all the martyrs

Fire, planetary alchemy,
Fire, the time is here now
Fire, four corners to rise
Fire rise!
Fire, there's always loss within,
Fire, the cleansing it's time
Fire, shooting arrows to the sky
Fire

The End of All Things to Come

All over with,
Fuck all the flags, the greed, the world leaders
Run for the fence
We're coming, We're killing, We're changing the faces
Believe in yourself
Let go of ego strenghten within yourself all over with
We're coming, We're killing, We're changing the faces

I'm killing, every fucking thing until somebody gets the fucking point, the point I'm trying to make
I lead, the mice on parade,
Down to the river of Kool Aid, and open up the flood gates
I need a barrel of Cyanide; a pile of Strychnine untill the whole damn world is dead
Start over again

All over with,
Fuck all the flags, the greed, the world leaders
Run for the fence
We're coming, We're killing, We're changing the faces

Stop talking, negotiating,
Your feeble attempts towards world peace,
Gimme a fucking break
Need world-wide genocide, planetary suicide and when the whole damn world is dead...
there's your fucking peace

All over with,
Fuck all the flags, the greed, the world leaders
Run for the fence
We're coming, We're killing, We're changing the faces
Believe in yourself
Let go of ego strenghten within yourself all over with
We're coming, We're killing, We're changing the faces

Oxygen wasters... Come on!

We've come... to save you, to save you from yourselfs

Kill or be killed

All over with,
Fuck all the flags, the greed, the world leaders
Run for the fence
We're coming, We're killing, We're changing the faces
Believe in yourself
Let go of ego strenghten within yourself all over with
We're coming, We're killing, We're changing the faces

The Patient Mental

Patient,
Just as I am,
As always,
Watch the time go by,
Nothing left to pass by,
The minutes follow me,
Drunken little people,
Work away in me,

Why won't they leave me, leave me alone
When I don't even want me, want me

I have to, kill the words,
Before they, form my sentence,
The sentence that is me,
Judged by those that carry
The patient sits in cradled arms
That comfort me by strangling

Why won't they leave me, leave me alone
When I don't even want me,

The patient mental sits and stares
An idle mind that's empty, screaming
Staring back
Why won't they leave him, leave him alone
A passive speared ritual
Drive by our war ship...the hate driven envy

They have to kill the meal,
Before they can consume,
Consume my inner peace,
Without the understanding,
Trapped inside the works,
The hands are moving me

The patient mental sits and stares
An idle mind that's empty, screaming
Staring back
Why won't they leave him, leave him alone
A passive speared ritual
Drive by our war ship...the hate driven envy

Release me,
Let me go,
Why do they observe me?
There's nothing here to cure,
I can see the silhouettes,
That sit behind the mirror
I'm just like a clock upon the wall
Always moving, but never going anywhere

The patient mental sits and stares
An idle mind that's empty, screaming
Staring back
Why won't they leave him, leave him alone
A passive speared ritual
Drive by our war ship...the hate driven envy

Trapped In the Wake of A Dream

Do I deserve these beatings?
Hating me,
well then,
Cut, cut the noose
and let me fall away...
I'm, growing weak and tired
of you
and your little shoving games
fucking...
pushing me.
You pulled the trigger,
trapped in,
the wake,
of your

Dream
You're all killers.
Always fucking pushing me;
insulting me;
I've overcome;
I have found the strength of gods in me.
Crushing
All unwilling;
This is so unstoppable.
Hard as nails,
hook that holds,
reach down and find the strength of many in you.

My sanctuary...
calling my name,
so I run through...
to the light,
weeping through a cloud.
Darkened,
by a tainted dream,
of me,
being pummeled by the tide,
crushing,
killing me
But I can't wake up,
trapped in,
the wake of a

Dream
You're all killers.
Always fucking pushing me;
insulting me;
I've overcome;
I have found the strength of gods in me.
Crushing
All unwilling;
This is so unstoppable.
Hard as nails,
hook that holds,
reach down and find the strength of many in you.

Call it;
call a truce.
I'm believing
in it more and more.
Comfort;
purge the truth, I'll belive it.
I'm so weak and sore, shadowed
Hide and seek,
but you never looked.
I wait behind the door
call out;
bite the hand that is feeding...
Compassion no more.

I hope I never wake up.

Dream-sewing, filters, distort reality of what is mine through light this mind awakens
I draw the line from then and now, awake and dreaming, forgotten past future becomes mine.

Throw the chains,
all away,
take control,
of your life.
Powers known,
this is my...
Throw the chains,
all away,
take control,
of your life.
Powers known,
this is my...

Dream
You're all killers.
Always fucking pushing me;
insulting me;
I've overcome;
I have found the strength of gods in me.
Crushing
All unwilling;
This is so unstoppable.
Hard as nails,
hook that holds,
reach down and find the strength of many in you.

World So Cold

When passion's lost and all the trust is gone,
Way too far, for way too long
Children crying, cast out and neglected,
Only in a world so cold, only in a world
This cold
Hold the hand of your best friend, look into their eyes
Then watch them drift away
Some might say, we've done the wrong things,
For way too long, for way too long

Fever inside the storm,
So I'm turning away.
Away from the name
(Calling your names)
Away from the stones
(Throw sticks and stones)
'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

Keep your thorns
'Cause I'm running away,
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
Away from the space
(Hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold

burning whispers, Remind me of the days,
I was left alone, in a world this cold
Guilty of the same things, provoked by
The cause,
I've left alone, in a world so cold
Fever inside the storm,
So I'm turning away.
Away from the name
(Calling your names)
Away from the stones
(Throw sticks and stones)
'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

Keep your thorns
'Cause I'm running away,
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
Away from the space
(Hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold

I'm flying, I'm flying away,
Away from the names
(Calling your names)
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
The circumstances of a world so cold

Why does everyone feel like my enemy,
Don't want any part of depression or
Darkness, I've had enough
sick and tired, bring the sun, or I'm gone,
Or I'm gone

I'm backing out, I'm no pawn,
No mother-fucking slave to this,
Never lied
Never left
Never lived
Never loved
Never lost
Never hurt
Never worry about being me, or anyone else
Not a care, no concern, don't give a shit about
Anything

Backing out, giving up, no mother-fucking
Slave to this,
Never lied
Never left
Never lived
Never loved
Never lost
Never hurt
Never worry about being me, or anyone else
Not a care, no concern, don't give a shit about
Anything,

I need to find a darkened corner,
A lightless corner,
Where it's safer and calmer,

I'm turning away.
Away from the name
(Calling your names)
Away from the stones
(Throw sticks and stones)
'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

I'm running away,
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
Away from the space
(Hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold

I'm flying, I'm flying away,
Away from the names
(Calling your names)
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
The circumstances of a world so cold
