Track Name: Prologue
My name and my origins are not important right now
I send this message from a planet, that I found, was once called Earth
I'd like to tell you a story about it's people
A true story
About humans
...
And as I read these ancient symbols
I can easily conclude that humans had everything that was necessary for one specie to flourish completely
And what did humans do instead?
They managed to fuck up
Everything
Track Name: Artifact
Everywhere I look I see beautiful creatures
Brought back to life by my imagination
When I close my eyes memories bring pictures
Of valleys and hills made by centuries of creation

There is no life here
In this limbo of emptiness, I feel
There is no life here

So many lives faded because of us
The universe does not care, but our God surely does
And still we're not tired of putting lambs to sleep
When one life succeeds, the others two sink

Where is my Sun now? We took the light away
Now I can hope for the better days
Where is my sunshine? It takes a long way
To understand our failure and wash away remains

Take it all, take it away
Take it all, no rest for today
Bring me desiese, bring me the rage
After all we're all locked in cage
Bring me pain and bring me fear
Deep inside lays a voice you will hear
Drill that hole, drill it through me
I can not resist, just let it be

Where is my Sun now? We took the light away
Now I can hope for the better days
Where is my sunshine? It takes a long way
To understand our failure and wash away remains
Track Name: Suffoskate
Waking up in another place
It's dark and abandoned, questions in my head
Where is my home, where is my race?

I walk down this road
They're all passing by
I walk through the cold

Walking deeper towards the dark
He's watching me
A deadly voice is mellowing the wind
Something's here
Something's here

Hide me please from this poisoned world
The song is louder in my ears
This was the place that I once called home
Now it's an orchestra of our own fears

The drums I hear, the battle is won
They rule the Earth like we ruled before
A melody inside is pushing me to move on
But no one is here, no one can help me anymore
No one can help me anymore

Our star is rising for the one last time
The sky has opened just for me to see
The glimpse of light is flowing, flowing across the dark
That final spark radiates through me

I cannot run, though I can't believe
Is this the end of the human being?
There is no place where I could go
For You, I'm just a number in a fucking row
Track Name: Supernova
Can you take the pain away from me?
I am lost in space
Can I get further away from here?
There's just the void I must embrace

Oh! I remember all these things I wrote
My divine words lost in a blow
Now I am floating here so low
Afraid of the heights I once mourned for

Destined to wander these alleys alone
A cosmic race against time
Engaged to the lights above
Still married to the darkness of mine

I remember all these things I wrote
My divine words lost in a blow
Now I am floating here so low
Afraid of the heights I once mourned for

Oh death I beg you once more
Can you take me, take me?
I am tired of being so alone

I am tired of extracting the life from this grief
I am all alone in this empty cage
Is this agony worth killing for relief?
Oh, hand me the knife please, I'm sweating in tears
Let's put some color on this shitty page
Oh hand me the gun please, I've been here for years
The grief slowly turns into rage
It's getting strong, can't really say how it feels
My guess, I've got nothing left to say
Stop thinking, just do it in your own way
My guess, I've got nothing left to lose
Yet again, whitch side do I have to choose?
And then, there is movement in the sky
A bright light exploding from the outer space
My end is near, It's time to say goodbye
I am blown away to „a better place“
Waking up in the nothingness of my mind
But the light stayed, painted my eyes in white
Again death, would you be so kind?
Even inside this hell you can't make it right

Oh death I beg you again and again
Can you take me, take me?
I am tired of being so alone

I remember all these things I wrote
My dying words lost in one blow
And again I'm standing in the cold
Blinded by the light I once mourned for
Track Name: A Footstep To Paradise
A light of day is changing
The view on the world ahead of me
My body is slowly fading
I'm footsteps away from the promised land

Could this be a dream, or a perfect reality?
Am I imagining?
I am high in the skies and no one can see me

Open your eyes and find a point of view
From there you can laugh at the people below, and they won't have a clue
No, they won't have a clue

Could this be a dream, or a perfect reality?
Am I imagining?
I am high in the skies and no one can see me

How is it possible to get stuck in between?
Among the dead I am counting the living
Oh! I'm at footstep to paradise

Could this be a dream, or a perfect reality?
Am I imagining?
I am high in the skies and no one can see me

As above, so below
These words can teach you how to let go

Let go of the heights you once mourned for
Let go of the ground you once stood on
You'll find yourself at the edge of sanity
Where rules of nature are chasing normality

Do you realize? You're at the footstep to paradise
Track Name: Red Rain
So we decide to create our own mistakes!

Yes we've forgotten that the beauty lays inside
Inside of us all, that's why we feel alive
Oh how I wonder, is this all that we've got?
You're all fucking role models, stop playing God!
Stop sucking life out of the innocent kind
As time passes by, we're dislocated in our own minds
We can not control, so we must be controlled
We're all fucking puppets hanging high in this land of ropes

It's our fault
The ape inside is warning us, it's our fault
Who let the snakes in this garden of hopes?
The venom is controlling us, it's our fault!

How do we find a way to fight?
The judges of our kind, the „followers of light“
Blind them all in the cover of the night
Cut the tongues, make them choke in their own lies

Red rain is falling down on us
We're bathed in blood, still we feel alive
Red rain is falling down on us
Erasing all the dirt we left behind

How do we find a way to fight?
The judges of our kind, the „followers of light“
Blind them all in the cover of the night
Cut the tongues, make them choke in their own lies
Track Name: Mouzess
I see them all, we're all in fear
This is not reality, I know
I see it all happening right in front of me
What can I do? I can only bow
I begged for this moment, now I can't believe
Are you the one who created me?
Open your eyes people, analyze your faith
Are they the gods who came too late?

You can run, I hope that you can
hide from it all

Where am I? Is this some kind of dream?
I can only pray for them to rise in peace
Where am I? Have I skipped reality?
I can only rest for now and wait for another thousand years

This never ending circle, I'm spinning round and round
In this never ending circle
As I move through this broken system
I see only withered faces, and there's no one to fix them

Pain, it's all I see
I am bound to my own beliefs
But judgements come from the ones above
Help Mother Earth, oh help me now

And now, we are bound to our beds
There is no time, no time for regrets
We destroyed the Earth with all our rage
Oh Mother Earth I can see you're dead

Hey, is this the end?
Is that the world giving it all back?
There is no hope in this story
They rise in all it's glory

Hey, is this the end?
Is that the world giving it all back?
I can't wait inside this corner
I cannot wait no longer

Where am I? Is this some kind of dream?
I can only pray for them to rise in peace
Where am I? Have i skipped reality?
I can only rest for now and wait for another thousand years
