LYRICS

ABANDON

The universe is just a controversial theory
A wrong point of view, subjective rules, a scale issue
Human beings simply will never see
Beyond the shades of light
Inside the pale essence
That you left behind
This is the moment of your life
See the years passing by
All that great things that you’ve planned are now irrelevant
The inevitable end of dreams
Hey! Wake up! It is time to your real birth
Clean the unwritten fate
Send your old regrets so far away
Burn the religious concepts that you’ve once learned
A lot of useless words
Writing by unwise men a long time ago
There’s a place you must forget
The planet that you used to live
A new direction is the only way to choose
It is not a mystery
The story has just began
Take a look to yourself
An endless shadow to surround you
Breathe the time and share your soul
Free your mind and let your temple
Eat your pride and drink your dreams
A drowning feeling to remember
Put yourself together once again
You must need all your senses
But it is not enough
In the end of life, in the end of life.
But we will never die
Take it away, take it away
It will blow your mind
Take it away, take it away
Don’t you realize?
Throw it away, throw it away
You don’t need anything
Throw it away, take it away
It is just your destiny
A wonderful relief
A beautiful belief
A growing distress
An indistinct progress
But we will never die…
We will never die

EXILE

This being in my old hands is the missing key to eternity
I am alive again; please close the doors dead poetry
Trapped inside a glass dome
For decades I've been longing for my life,
You cannot sleep until my liberation
You think it's just a nightmare
But it's my sanctuary
I am so far away, so far away from home
Lost in time and space, waiting for too long
It is a huge mistake my revenge will be strong
I don’t know what to do
It's too late to avoid a tragedy
Take a deep breath
You must forgive my ignorance
Trapped inside a glass dome
For decades I've been longing for my life,
You cannot sleep until my liberation
You think it's just a nightmare…
Give me back my sanctuary
I am so far away, so far away from home
Lost in time and space, waiting for too long
It is a huge mistake my vengeance will be strong
Take me away from here my kingdom waits for me
I am so far away, so far away from home
Lost in time and space, waiting for too long
It is a huge mistake my vengeance will be strong
Take me away from here my kingdom waits for me

RECOVERING

I am free
The curse is over
Feeling some
Mental disorder
Now I don't have time to heal the pain
My missing tools
I will recover
Despite the weight
On my shoulder
I'm going down to last circle of hell
The devils dance
Sleep my child, your time is coming
Cut the flash my own blood is flowing
Revenge is poisoning my judgment
Believe my friend I am now stronger
I will defeat my enemies again
To die alone will be your future
A painful death will come to us

REALM

Dreaming, broken pieces
We lost it all
Dying, distant mirrors
We show our fear
Suddenly the time is over
But we can't run a handful of dust
Nightmare, singular visions
Now we can fly
Falling, they take our wings away
A bitter taste remains
Bleeding (there is no meaning)
Unlock the door (the end has just begun)
A living kingdom
Where everything is possible and we can fly
Where we belong briefly sometimes
There's a kingdom of dreams
A dangerous place in dangerous times
An abandoned house a dramatic side of the truth
It will be destroyed
Hear the voice of reason
Redemption is what you cannot expect from them
It’s too late to regret the emptiness is growing up deep inside
The hall of mirrors
Swearing a false oath, a retribution in self cursing
I can't find my secret place, somewhere beyond the eyes of this destiny
BLOOD – REVENGE - YOU WILL PAY
(YOUR) PRECIOUS LIFE - IS THE END
Give me back my sanctuary
It is done good people will come
I’ll find my peace
There’s no more pain indeed
Nothing can save me
A curse it's my own blood
A consequence
It’s my destiny
Nobody can rescue me

BOOK

Beyond the time before the first one
The oldest being who keeps the future
The book of life and death lies in his hands
Around the fate below the knowledge
Indifference, feel no emotion
An endless burden a painful curse indeed
It is time to change and it is time to feel
Beside the mist among the old gods
The past is lost into a moment
Day by day the facts repeat themselves
The rise and fall it is all the same
The time of death and no one to blame
You realize, we are alone
Nobody cares; nobody will save your soul
A labyrinth where we used to live a meaningless life
Above the clouds under the tree roots
An eternal witness a perennial figure
A silent viewer who cannot change anything
Behind the hell, over the mountains
This little world: a boring experiment
Turn the page your life is just a foot note
The life and death it is all the same
The future the past just crossing ways
You realize, we are alone
Nobody cares; nobody will save your soul
A labyrinth where we used to live
A meaningless life
Free will is a false promise
A red tower behind the mist
On the stones that we walk
Step by step closest to eternity
Feeling what you will never feel
Bleeding like a pulsing star
Nothing is sacred nothing is forbidden
Nothing is useful nothing is everything
We will never belong here
Our existence is elsewhere
Life is just an imaginary solution
The side effect of an empty evolution
A comedy of certainties
Where we used to live
A meaningless life
Get used to the loneliness
Because tomorrow
Can be a trap (eternally)
Face the pain that lives inside you
The days of sorrow
Leave them behind
You realize, we die alone, nobody cares
Nobody will save your soul
There's no escape, your fate is done...
Try to understand

OUT OF PLACE

Sometimes we just need to mess up the universe
Sometimes we need to spice up the magic truth
I hear colors and I see a lot of sounds
I will keep my sanity inside my mind
Nothing is absolute
Nothing is relative
Drowning in reality
I am feeling completely alone
Let me be who I am
Sometimes the world becomes a place where you don't want to be
Sometimes the people are so annoying confuse
It’s time to change the world and it's time to lose control
It’s the wrong way you choose, the dirty place you go
Everything is possible
Everything is lost
Drowning in stupid dreams
I am feeling so much stronger
Show me the way
Tell me the truth
Bring me some flowers

FLOWERS

Out of this place, living inside a surreal painting
Breaking the rules, giving the best I have for free
Remember the root of your concerns
Beware the normal life is the prison
Nothing is permanent
Everything changes
We are dust
The balance is fragile
Wake up, you choose your side
It’s hard to read your eyes
My heart is locked inside
An old and colorful safe
Bring me more flowers; I have a lot of things to do
Trying to understand, the time of your life is coming soon
Believe me, eternal fear will come
Eternity in a frame of conclusion
Nothing is real
The balance is fragile
There’s no more pain
My precious time
Wake up, you choose your side
It’s hard to read your eyes
My heart is locked inside
An old & colorful safe

EMPTY ROOMS

Do you remember the time?
When hope lied inside
The sickness unto death
Is your despair
Do you remember my name?
When I was young and alone
Sorrow was my only perspective, the only way
The tension of infinity
The height of mortality
Will prevail
If you don’t know who I am
You should stay where you are
In silence
Do you intend to achieve
The highest ground at the end
Countless mirrors in my labyrinth, you are lost
My musky shadow in the air
The sky on grey you see inside my eyes
My nudity
Feel these empty rooms where we are (in darkness)
There’s a reason you must take on your shoulders
I need to tell you it is a road to nowhere
Nobody will be able to help you, no more
Feel these empty rooms where we are (eternally)
There’s a reason you must take on your shoulders
I need to tell you it is a road to Despair
Nobody will want to help you, no more

CREATION

Eternity (endlessly) it's a dream
Destiny (silently) is taking my soul
My heart is broken. The visions are closer
Watching my last hope disappears
I bleed
I walk alone through the fields
All I see is a devastated land
Sadness is spreading around
Humanity with all its greed
Is taking a dark path to death
The evil is winning this war (I give up)
The world is becoming a pool
The chaos will drive the rules
We will see
All that things I’m leaving behind
Useless burden and no one will cry
I am done
Eternity endlessly it's a dream
Destiny silently is taking my soul
My heart is broken. The visions are closer
Watching my last hope disappears
I bleed
I stand in front of you don't pretend
All I see is sorrow in your eyes
Your loneliness is not solitude
I’ve been learning everyday in this road
The nature of human needs
And love is losing this war
The world is becoming so poor
Misery will drive the rules
We will see
All that things I’m leaving behind
Ways of destruction it's a matter of time

ENOUGH

Will to live,
Temptation stares deep into your thoughts all the time
What do you want?
This is just a human need that you will never satisfy
It is not enough (it will never be)
It is not enough I want it all
I am not free (you will never be)
I will never be free until exhaust my soul
Emptiness
At the end of the way everything is simply illusory
Giving up
Achieve your desires is virtually the same distress
You want more (forever I will)
You want more and you want now
It’s what I want (it's not what I need)
Contemplate the failed promise of achievement
Tell me why
Tell me why I am broken
Tell me why I am falling down
There’s a way to reach a brief relief
Listen to the song that the mermaid sings
Consume all you can

THEORIES

Κύριε, ελέησον
Θάνατος, ελέησον
Face the fear, are you ready to leave?
I don’t mind who you are, what you do what you have
Disconnect the broken piece
There’s no cure, there‘s no disease
(divina comedia - canto III)
Per me si va ne la città dolente,
per me si va ne l'etterno dolore,
per me si va tra la perduta gente.
Giustizia mosse il mio alto fattore;
fecemi la divina podestate,
la somma sapïenza e 'l primo amore.
Dinanzi a me non fuor cose create
se non etterne, e io etterno duro.
Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate.
Here we are, I will show you the way, the hardest way
Don’t worry, my friend, there's no more pain
memento homo quia: pulvis es et in pulverem reverteris
And the rest is silence, a meaningless waste of time
Because one day everyone who you love
Every single person that loves you will go away, fade away, forever
See how your concerns are completely futile
Each aspect of your precious life will become dust
Nothing really matters at all, vanity, greed, power, life
Poverty, starvation, misery, love, love, love is just meaningless waste of time
See the world, god is dead and nobody gives a damn
It’s the end, it's the end, and it’s the end....
You, face the truth. You, reach the end.
Mors Omnia Solvit
You must know
'cause the existence is faulty and fractioned
Life’s but a walking shadow, poor friend
Realize how small your presence in the universe is
A chaotic misunderstanding all the time
Can you see the uselessness of suffering?
The insanity created by men, all the rules, religion, war, god, death
You, face the truth. You, reach the end.
See, human beings and their dreams - See, deny nature, Earth’s nightmare
Just meaningless waste of time - Meaningless waste of time
All you see, all you hear - Domination extinction
Just meaningless waste of time - Eventually we will die
Meaningless efforts behind - Meaningless lives
Strangeful thoughts inside - We create our own reasons to live
Eventually we will die - Meaningless worries to deal with reality
Meaningless waste of time - Meaningless ways to escape from misery
Meaningless waste of time
Destiny does not belong to you
Your dreams will not come true
You can't cheat death, no turning back
Hate consumes your hope
An iconoclastic delirium, a suicidal desire
Despair fills your veins, destruction begins
I will make you understand
The fragile essence of life
A meaningless waste of time
The fragile essence of life
Tell me the last words you'll say
Remember good times
I will lead you in this way
Abandon your hope
Is Death the end ????
