1. Shroud Of False

We are just a moment in time,
A blink of an eye,
A dream for the blind,
Visions from a dying brain,
I hope you don't understand




2. Fragile Dreams

"Tonight your soul sleeps, but one day you will feel real pain,
maybe then you will see mee as I am,
A fragile wreck on a storm of emotion"

Countless times I trusted you,
I let you back in,
Knowing... Yearning... you know
I should have run... but I stayed

Maybe I always knew,
My fragile dreams would be broken for you.

Today I introduced myself,
To my own feelings,
In silent agony, after all these years,
They spoke to me... after all these years

Maybe I always knew...




3. Balance

Glad to see your wide awake
this is the great escape
from a life that tried to mould you
and the lie it sold youWhat would you do?
what wouldn't you do?
what would you do?
what wouldn't you do?
what would you do?
what wouldn't you do?Did you try to reason why
look yourself in the eye
what you are is all you have been
what will be is all you do nowWhat would you do?
what wouldn't you do?
what would you do?
what wouldn't you do?
what would you do?
what wouldn't you do?Spill a tear as your sense of self slowly
melts away
melts away
melts awayUntil death's mirror reflects
the meaning of our lives
we wander aimless and mesmerised
as the fear starts to rise




4. Closer

Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
to be trapped

Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
to be trapped inside
to be trapped inside
to be trapped inside
All your life

Shine in time
Shine in time
Shine in time
Until you find

Your closer
Your closer
to the truth

Within you
Within you
Within you
Is the truth

That your dream world is a very scary place
That your dream world is a very scary place
That your dream world is a very scary place
to be trapped inside
to be trapped inside
to be trapped inside
All your life

Your closer
Your closer
Your closer
to the truth

Within you
Within you
Within you
Is the truth




5. Lost Control

Life has betrayed me once again,
I accept that some things will never change.
I've let your tiny minds magnify my agony,
and it's left me with a chem'cal dependency for sanity.

Yes, I am falling... how much longer till I hit the ground?
I can't tell you why I'm breaking down.
Do you wonder why I prefer to be alone?
Have I really lost control?

I'm coming to en end,
I've realised what I could have been.
I can't sleep so I take a breath and hide behind my bravest mask,
I admit I've lost control.




6. Empty

Empty vessel under the sun wipe the dust
from my face another morning black sunday
coming down again empty vessel empty veins
empty bottle wish for rain that pain again
wash the blood off my face the pulse from
my brain and i feel that pain again

im looking over my shoulder cos millions
will whisper im killing myself again maybe
im dying faster but nothing ever last i
remember a night from my past when i was
stabbed in the back and its all coming
back and i feel that pain again

i abhor you i condemn you cos this pain
will never end you got away without a
scratch and now youre walking on a lucky
path i have to laugh but youd better watch
your back

theres pathetic opposition theyre the
cause of my condition ill be coming back
for them ive a solution for this sad
situation nothing left but to kill myself
again because im so empty




7. A Natural Disaster

It's been a long, cold winter
without you
I've been crying on the inside
Over you
You've just slipped through my fingers
So life turned away
It's been a long, cold winter
Since that day..
And it's hard to find, hard to find, hard to find the strenght now
but I try
And I don't wanna, don't wanna, don't wanna, don't wanna to speak now
of what's gone by

Cause no matter what I say, no matter what I do
I can't change what happend, can't change what happend
No matter what I say, no matter what I do
Can't change what happend, can't change what happend
no matter what I say, no matter what I do
Can't change what happend, can't change what happend
No, no, can't change
You've just slipped through my fingers
And now I feel so ashamed
You've just slipped through my fingers
and I've paid




8. Inner Silence

When the silence beckons,
And the day draws to a close,
When the light of your life sighs,
And love dies in your eyes,
Only then will I realise,
What you mean to me.




9. One Last Goodbye

How I needed you
How I grieve now you're gone
In my dreams I see you
I awake so alone

I know you didn't want to leave
Your heart yearned to stay
But the strength I always loved in you
Finally gave way

Somehow I knew you would leave me this way
Somehow I knew you could never stay
And in the early morning light
After a silent peaceful night
You took my heart away
And I grieve

In my dreams I can see you
I can tell you how I feel
In my dreams I can hold you
And it feels so real

I still feel the pain
I still feel your love
I still feel the pain
I still feel your love

Somehow I knew you could never, never stay
And somehow I knew you would leave me
And in the early morning light
After a peaceful night
You took my heart away
I wished, I wished you could have stayed




10. Judgement

The inequity of fate
The pains of love and hate
The heart-sick memories
That brought you to your knees

And the times when we were young
When life seemed so long
Now you are left alone
Where did it all go wrong
Day after day
You burned it all away
(and it's too late)

All the hate that feeds your needs
All the sickness you conceive
All the horror you create
Will bring you to your knees




11. Panic

You know you ain't going nowhere you're stuck inside
while the mind is flying you said you'd help
me in the morning twisting on pins into my
eyes and we driving on the ceiling below
you... facin' up the walls with your crocked hands
while you're miles away I don't think at all
end up like this there's spiders on the
wall and they stink of piss dead heads
lying in the corner staring at me making me
feel BAD I put my hands up to my eyes
but the holes in my palms let me find a way
to corner you
I can't feel my chest because it ain't much
sucking through my skin into my BRAIN
oxygen pushing on the window cracks in the glass let it slip away
I start to cry and I keep on laughing
I close my eyes at what's left inside
and then i'll ran away

For all the time this land
for all the time in my hand
slip around
(...
...)
once again

Razor blades floating in the warm bath air bubbles in your veins turning
my hands black whispers coming from the next room
window cleaner keeps on SPYING I put my hands up
to my eyes but the HOLES in my PALMS let me find
a way to corner me twelve (12) hammer for

My breakfast slipping of the edge in catatonic
blood multiple decibel inscriptions trying all they
can in miles an hour ... face
grey and looming downwards
sniffing ALL THE TIME for a ounce
of silence screaming all the way numbers
counting down inside me
solar system thoughts circle
round my HEAD false teeth hanging
from the ceiling feet looking of the goms
of the 2nd son I eat
my hands cos my legs are crying you
BROKE my neck cause i
snapped my spine I wish you would
die away to all the time in this land
and all the time in my hands circle
round in depth found calmness
fall once again




12. Flying

Started a search to no avail
a light that shines behind the veil trying to find it
And all around us everywhere
Is all that we could ever share if only we could see it
Feel there's truth that's beyond me
Life ever changing weaving destiny

And it feels like I'm flying above you
Dream that i'm dying to find the truth
Seems like your trying to bring me down
Back down to earth back down to earth

Layers of dust and yesterdays
Shadows fading in the haze of what I couldn't say
And though I said my hands were tied
Times have changed and now I find I'm free for the first time
Feel so close to everything now
Strange how life makes sense in time now

And it feels like I'm flying above you
Dream that I'm dying to find the truth
Seems like your trying to bring me down
Back down to earth back down to earth
Back down to earth back down to earth
Back down to earth back down to earth




13. Angela




14. Comfortably Numb (Pink Floyd cover)

Hello
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone home?

Come on, now.
I hear youíre feeling down.
Well I can ease your pain,
Get you on your feet again.

Relax.
I need some information first.
Just the basic facts:
Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant shipís smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I canít hear what youíre sayiní.
When I was a child I had a fever.
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I got that feeling once again.
I canít explain, you would not understand.
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.

Ok.
Just a little pinprick.
Thereíll be no more --aaaaaahhhhh!
But you may feel a little sick.

Can you stand up?
I do believe itís working. good.
Thatíll keep you going for the show.
Come on itís time to go.

There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant shipís smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I canít hear what youíre sayiní.
When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone.
I cannot put my finger on it now.
The child is grown, the dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb.
