Track Name: Midori
I have come this way before,
It is a path without an end.
The further you go,
The darker it gets.
Ugly flowers give off a strange smell,
The graves in the cemetery have given up their canaries.
A small insect clings to my foot,
It lights up my skirt with its blue beam.

Who are those people down there?
They are waiting for me to break down in tears.
I want to remain a child,
I want to remain a human being.

Although I have taken off my red shoes,
Although I have ran without looking back,
I have gotten lost in a labyrinth.
I have never found the path of my dream.

I have come this way before,
I have come the other way, too.
I shall never see you again.
Track Name: You Feed On Poison
There's no one to call now, tired birds dream by the beach
You feed on poison, her temperament is your relief

You breed in darkness, not to reveal your deepest flaw
Contaminated, the city ruins lie afar

They feed on insects that populate the empty streets
You bathe in anguish, she has not met your primal needs

Infatuated, you're only concerned with your skin
Granted asylum, only in the deepest caverns of your dreams
Track Name: Truth In Pain
light sparked a candle in the dimming room
the warmth i felt, it turned to pain
as the exposure overcame
my dulled sense of desire
your body, mind set me aflame

lust burned through any reason i had left
and all the reasons to forgive
were lost that blasted night
i fought the thoughts, i fought the light

and as the gross caricature became
all that you saw of me, i realized
there's truth in pain, and nothing on my mind
but thoughts of you

your chill resolve
that brought me to my knees
i crumbled into broken bones,
i fell beneath
succumbed to the bewitching spell,
i thought of nothing more, than to obey
than to perceive the smoldering decay
as you instilled the lovely, bitter pain
that burns me to this day
Track Name: Time Capsule
Sand burns under your little feet
You were told that nothing's real,
But you tried so hard to protect
That tiny, fragile space within your head

Summer fades into a blazing, orange flame
Your purple flowers still fill my brain
Try to retrace my way back home
But find it burned out, faded, I'm alone
Track Name: Requiems
He's got a mouth like a damaged machine
and it won't stop repeating,
until it has finally expelled all possible meaning,
listen to me just for a moment,
do you sense any sentiment from this end

Just waiting for your chance to respond
to spew out more meaningless bullshit
You can't expect to make connections this way my boy,
you can't expect me to give a fuck
Oh but you don't, the pleasure's in the act itself

I have no say, my hands behind my back,
face down in a pile of your empty words

I have no say, my hands across my face
broken down in a pile of your empty words
Track Name: Gateless
Have you ever felt an empty chasm within yourself?
Have you ever felt an emptiness bigger than yourself?
Have you ever felt a growing void within yourself?
Do you ever feel like there is nothing that could ever bring you back?

Can you almost taste a new beginning, just out of reach?
Do you ever feel the rising pressure of your old life seeping in?
Are you going to stay here forever, my old friend?
Could there ever ever be a future, is this all pretend?
Track Name: T-Girl
we are fishes in the sea
never restrained, never free
live forever here with me
I won't ever let you be
left alone here without me

bridges crumble to the sea
and we never knew how fast this would end
until time caught up with us again
it didn't give us a warning
and now we're sitting here and mourning
those days that felt like they would never end

we are dying in this sea
never restrained never free
we'll live forever you and me
i promise you, i promise you
don't believe them, don't believe
we will lie here dormant in eternal embrace
until the universe explodes
Track Name: Panthea
In here snow falls nonstop
I thought we might
jump in the radiant crystals,
free from love, hate, temptation

just one of them

transparent, glowing
with millions of lights
all connected to each other
stretching out
like dust we fall

this is where i'll be
this is where you'll find me now
this is where i'll be
this is where i'll wait for you

the left disconnected
we flow into an endless sea
gather ourselves together
flow outward into infinity

this is where i'll be
this is where you'll find me now
this is where i'll be
this is where i'll wait for you
Track Name: The Final Request
Help me, I deserve everything
But you told me
I won't feel a thing, I don't
Free me from this machine
I've bled the last drop

Shut off
Your gauges point to the ground
Leaking oil
That seeps through faulty lines inside your chest
The final request
