I’ve lost the will to try My soul burns out inside I’m crawling while I cry I smell the leaves left behind I whisper all the time My fear, it kills my mind I’m asking why I cry My thoughts, they twist deep inside I’m craving for the truth I’m trapped within a lie I’m asking why I try A failure all the time I whisper all the time My fear, it kills may mind I’m asking why I cry My thoughts, they twist deep inside

From what it was to what it is From a cruel past to a creepy now From all that’s been & done to our days Nothing changed They were strange fruits, hanging from the trees They were forgotten hearts & rotten meat Now they are sentenced to death by a hanging judge Nothing changed A moving murderer, a noose from the sky Gravity claims the right to happen The weight of a sentence on a innocent corpse Nothing changed

A crowd and the solitude glass A meadow and the soft lights Music is over, night is on Three steps to oblivion grounded on grass, Equinox through the solitude glass The smell of moonlight, the shining’ so bright A silent agreement through the solitude glass Three steps to oblivion grounded on grass, Equinox through the solitude glass A far away mourning crawling under skin Filled with scorn, emptiness worn

You could have been my last hope Maybe you could have been, nothing at all And now you’re the truth from which I hide I’d rather stay by your side If only I knew that I could fail again, with you The other one, a lonely game Within my mind The other one, a lovely play Within my brain You could have been my worst dream Maybe you could have been Between a cup & a wreck My heart is stronger than my thoughts I want to tell you something you don’t wanna know … The other one, a lovely game Within my brain You’re going to die & blow my mind Without any pain And now you’re the past that will not last, that won’t come back I would not stay by your side … ‘cause now I know it wouldn’t be wrong to fail again, trying to stay with you … The other one, a lonely game …

Now the whole stage is yours While I will take my place Through the gates of eternity This is the tail of a tale I will tell you after all You’re goin’ on playin’ the same fucking shit … ‘cause everything’s been said Better than you & me & ever than before. Now the whole stage is yours And you will write your songs About how all the world has gone This is a take of the tale I was tellin’ before You’re goin’ on playin’ the same fucking shit … ‘cause everything’s been said Better than you & me & ever than before. Ever than before … I’m telling you, you’re so useless, but the damage is done !!! You’re goin’ on playin’ the same fucking shit …

Raw suns & grim moons As they flow overwhelmed by thoughts As they crawl no way if they fall Raw suns & grim moons Jackals & werewolves barking at night A black spot brightens the air They cause daze through the sad glass They cause pain on the bad glass And it’s dark outside, the gloomy dark you’ve ever seen before … They stand over all and all and all and all and all … Raw suns & grim moons As they crawl no way if they fall

I’ve lost love, Now I only wear a velvet glove I’ve lost love, Many feet underground The pale moon brightens the tomb While I dig, she’s alive In the deepest ground Now she’s only skin & bones I’ve lost love on a day like today Her breath was deep Her beat a drum machine Life is a poison to swallow We embrace the night, we lose our fight You choke & die, I laugh & cry One last kiss to say goodbye …

You’re the only one for me Yeah, there’s no one else, my love And our souls deep inside they are tied You take my hand while I die I remember our love Born like a rising sun And we wrote our names On a blank page You & Me, under a sparkling dawn You & Me, embraced in the snow You’re smile’s my strength, you enlighten my days You’re the perfect half of me I remember our love Born like a rising sun And we wrote our names On a blank page I remember our love Born like a rising sun And we wrote our names On a blank page We filled it up with our lives And with our newborn love You came to me like a buzz And warmed up my cold, cold heart

A scar is born inside my heart It’s running blue through my cold blood A scar is born, you told me your lies A scar is born, while my heart dies A scar is born, when I lay down with you If I feel alive, please If I feel alive, please Just tell me why, please Just tell me why …

about

Dreamy, melancholy, surreal, ironic, this album is above all, lucid. We don't sink in bloody wounds, not plaintive cries within the walls of our house, no broken windows or broken dishes or pain lost en route because of suicide; rather a radiant consciousness oozing sounds of detached redemption. An atmosphere of unreality seems to cross all the album without, it would seem, any sorts solutions. We are facing the inner landscape of a loving post-apocalyptic world with metallic reflections. In the solitude of the artist dimension, where we enter a little 'time, conscious of a common experience as a scar itself, there is no room for sadness nor resignation. We find, however, all the beauty and the lightness of a lucid detachment, of a scar-won strength, as well as the 'irreverent and ironic treatment of himself (or his double ...)
