Deprived (Into Darkness) Imagine... space... Vast desolateness... The attraction of light, starlight In an ocean of black, the sun You Space… I’m drifting, drawn Towards you My sun in dark times Brightening my heart The warm glow of love Haven of hope Heaven Like Icarus – I dreamt of light Like Icarus – I came too close Like Icarus – I dreamt of light Like Icarus – my melted dreams Heaven within reach Soul mates collision A black hole instead A collapse of faith Heaven burnt to ashes I came too close You, my supernova, so near No laws of nature could capture Our mutual attraction, so pure Our dreams of love – in vain Like Icarus – I dreamt of light Like Icarus – I came too close Like Icarus – I dreamt of light Like Icarus – my melted dreams Imagine… it would have worked But you could not… no… no… A galactic implosion instead My sun cast me into infinity A massive black hole Devoid of you, I drifted… Deprived - I drift Deprived from the light I drift… into darkness Deprived from love I drift… into nothingness Deprived from you I dwell… into darkness Dreaming… of you Dreaming… of light Dreaming… to end… This night... eternal Deprived - I drift Deprived from the light I drift… into darkness Deprived from love I drift… into nothingness Deprived from you I dwell… into darkness

Capital of Rain Welcome to the place we all know Where we all feel home And no one likes to stay Meet those who fade to grey Cette pluie éternelle, qui érode le corps, assombrit l'âme Dejection – falls from the sky - eternally Relentless tears shroud a city Like mist from ages of dread Grey skies untouched by sun Host an empire of sadness Cette pluie éternelle, qui érode le corps, assombrit l'âme Dejection – falls from the sky - eternally And in this capital of rain There's comfort in tears And in this eternity of mist Eyes can see no light And in this lightless place All have faded to grey And all this pouring misery Mirrors their soul... Darkness blinds all life and light She is the Universe

Uneven In a world of black and white Simplicity is King and order his Queen In a world of black and white All questions answered by yes or no In a world of black and white An existence of duality Simplicity is King and Order his Queen An existence of duality In a world of black and white The binary order of life All questions answered by yes or no The binary order of life All there is, was, and will be Count to two - All you can do Bring an end to this illusion of false hope Dark Ages’ logic obscuring the mind's eye All Uneven Bring an end to this illusion of false hope Options multiply without binary chains All Uneven Reject! Refuse a world of binary simplicity There's more than heaven or hell Accept complexity - an eternity of colours There's more than black or white Exist! Release the ties of the past Be one - free from this doom of men Oh, vile desire for order Our world drowns in manmade rules Deny these simple lies - Overthrow and grow Now open your once covered eyes Truth no longer hides All there is, was, and will be More than a mind can see

Lullaby of Insanity Here, where clouds paint the sky A canvas of pitch black darkness All voices silenced, except those... in my head No nightmare can compete This sick melody, my lullaby The last thing that I need A sickening melody... of insanity Here, where night is all and everything And sleep is so much desired, so much... To shut down the voices... in my head Hear, the voices arrived... again A panorama of ghosts and ghouls On an ailing parade... in my head Hear their cries, calling my name... again Tragic echoes of my dire past When silence is all I need... in my head Shut down! End this masquerade of pain Shut down! This call to the insane Shut down! I plead, I beg, I crawl, I crave Shut down! End this lullaby of insanity To sleep is to live We need it like air To live is to die First rule of life And I ... I die to sleep... Every night again Yet these haunted moments When we sail away When we empty our head These dreadful moments... Take my breath away And panic rules When the hour is nigh As for me To go to sleep is... to die End this masquerade of pain This call to the insane I plead, I beg, I crawl, I crave End this lullaby of insanity ...and sink into oblivion

The Garden of All Things Wild I have come from the valley This track runs deep Darkness overcome Still the hill grows steep I’ve believed all my demons And the filth they’ve preached I’ve awoken from that sleep Now the summit I will reach And see the field Swarmed by scarlet light I enter these novel meadows Brimmed with vanes and folk Praised by harlots and jesters As a king foretold Ruling over morrow and yester I possess all but gold Malignant or benign All who lived would align To feast and dine, Drenched pyres with wine In the garden of earthly delights A place for all things wild The garden of earthly delights My Eden Love and lust be my guide Who’s this creature before me Known unto none Sister of nightly moth She worships the sun With the beauty of a goddess And wings fiery red She stared into my soul And awoke what I thought was dead Her flight took to the sky But in time she would be mine From that moment on, I did yearn Deeply prayed for her return Ever did I seek her trail By the flowers she kissed One early dusk she sat sail This time my grip did not miss I poured her into a vessel cold As her wings struck glass Accepting the bold threshold We both found rest, at last The dawn was filled with regret For morrow had brought death From my queen all life had gone Oh my poor sweet child Now my own heaven’s denied Oh my god, what have I done I buried her in my hands With the pity death demands My tears fell unto her flesh A motion, an act Her wings moved, death was cracked Forgiveness was mine In one last kiss goodbye To love you I must set you free Never fully close my grip Hope you return, come and rest with me In my life of all things wild To love me you must choose the sky Along with the wind you need to fly But come rest close to me, And captivate me In our garden of all things wild

Lost in a dream, I long… for you Your eyes… haunt my nightly shade Lost in a dream, I long… for you Your voice… whispers in every corner So why? Why did you step… Out of the dream and into my life? Resistance was futile Surrender with a smile A sort of homecoming In your house and arms Never experienced and unexpected Turning life upside down and inside out In the house of doom My heart has its place For my entire life, alas I can find no room Lost in a dream, I long… for you Your scent… calls my inner nature Lost in a dream, I long… for you Your touch… will shiver my skin Lost in the house of doom My heart desires to stay Lost in my house of doom Exit through the back door In the house of doom My heart has its place For my entire life, alas I can find no room I’ll put out the lights So I don’t have to see I turn my back And go back… To my life – without you To my past – without us
