Track Name: Mirage
Somehow

I always knew I wouldn’t be myself

I know I let you down

But someone inside me felt so scared



And I saw your pain

and all the marks they left along your face

They said it’s part of the game

So on your nightmares stayed the same

Through all the times they made you fear

I pretended it was not my deal

I wanna say I’m sorry

I didn’t help you out


Sometimes it all seems hopeless

But if we stand against it

the tears have chance to dry

And no, it’s never easy

But the bruises fade away, don’t they?
Track Name: Certainty
The end began so suddenly
I was numb for misery
Disease blighted my freedom

Everyday I gaze same dot
What I've done or what I've not
My head is full of thoughts and pain

Being upset everyday is agony
I repay the price of my casual life

Finally I realize
How brief my life was
If I'd vanish today

Avoiding the truth, refusing the facts
I know that I'll die with certainty
Every time I close my eyes I fall within the silence
I'm afraid of my passing

Silence
Track Name: Attitude
You were young when I found you
You were scared too
Do I really need these eyes
to show the scars in you?

You were so suffocated
and amputee
How cruel this wicked life can be?

Close your eyes
Cradle yourself to disguise
Close your eyes
Your attitude helps you to rise

You had an obsession
To live like hound
I saw your siblings
The bodies on the ground

I came with true salvation
To pick you up from hell
I saw it just in place you dwell
I did
Track Name: Inside
One day I began to sense tremor
Now I don't know when I'm awake
Life is only blurred disturbance
I would like to open my eyes but I can't

Inside me grows a new kind of distress
When I realize that all this is true
I don't know when I slept last time
Or when I was conscious, have I ever been?

Am I alive?
Am I here?

I have no protection, sometimes I don't know
If I'm breathing or not
Over pounding darkness
I need to consolidate myself - Inside

Darkness deprives my mind
Senses fall behind
Ominous noises turn to truth in my head
My throat suffocates so I can't take a breath

The corrosion of my mind is ruining me
A sudden change with no reason
I'm uncertain of my existence
That consumes me from within
Track Name: In the Place Where I Belong
Life ain't always easy
You can never be sure
There are too many diseases
That do not have a cure
Be ready for tomorrow
From clear sky it may rain
I think that I belong here
Where the truth is in vain

This is the countdown to the war
Wrong kind of rebound to us all
Your deeds just became undone
In the place where I belong

Lie more, you are higher
There will be blood and sorrow
Lets pick up the berries when they're ripe
Practice of tomorrow

This is the countdown to the war
Wrong kind of rebound to us all
Your deeds just became undone
In the place where I belong
Track Name: Black Lakes
We thought that we could live like this
Waste resources and create crises
Only the strongest survive
The billow of frostbites

Collecting the remains of our culture
Suffering from the cost of our greed
Why does our every try
End up in agony

As the witnesses of collapsing world
We should see our weakness
Why does our every try
End in this destiny

We have only proceeded backwards
From the culmination of mankind
Once we had a chance to live
No one did remind

Eclipse

Thoughts in the past
We assumed that it would always last
We breathe in the frost now
Shrouded by the haze of the end
