1. We Cry As One

A deep frustrationís running through my veins,
A dark lightís entering the church
By pale glass windows
And I feel so cold.

I canít stop looking at the wooden box placed
In the very centre of the nave.
Iím trying to imagine you...
...Sleeping.

Weíre in the home
Of life and death,
Where each being takes end.
And time flows with the sand!

We cry as one,
Your friends, your family.
Death has stained this day.
And now heís gone away.

I think you would be smiling
Listening to this priest today
Before his church.
I can still remember
Your songs about Christendom and slavery.

I canít realise!
Death before my eyes!
Listening to this sermonís lies!

Heís never seen you!
Heís never talked to you!
How can his white lies be true?

But I have to understand,
This prayer that pays tribute too
Itís not here to be true, but to help us go through
The deep pain that we bear, the way we all suffer.
Our dreams of paradise get the pain out of our minds.




2. It Can't Be!

I have just opened my eyes
I slowly start to realise...

It canít be!

How many times did you fight up to now?

For how long have you prepared your withdrawal?
I could not have predicted this outcome my friend
I had better close my eyes once more again...

(Be)cause it canít be

I have just opened my eyes (again)
But I donít want to realise.

I can still remember the sound of your voice,
You looked better, you canít have made this choice
No It canít be!

I can not stand the idea
That you have been so silent
Eaten by your own pain
You tried suicide again

My brother, my old friend,
It can not be the end
Of your smiles when your face was shining with joy,
Of these hours we spent, speaking about our great band.




3. How Could You?

Sometimes I try to realise that you are gone.
Sometimes I think that Iíll never, (Canít) go on alone.
An endless fight, to look normal, to be funny.
I can only paint deadly smiles on my poor face,
My poor face...

How could you leave us so suddenly?
How will we live?
How could you leave us so suddenly?
How will I live?

Iím so angry with you,
How could you
Hide your pain this way?

Iím so angry with myself,
How could I
Be so blind?

Every morning the same nightmare
Wonít I wake up?
Itís the worst pain Iíve ever felt:
Youíve given up, given up...

Because you hated life as life hated you.
Like a nameless disease, like an aimless torture.

I have searched for answers to explain your suicide.
Iíve preferred the version of an impulsive act.

But you knew all this time that youíd finally go.
Youíve prepared your own death with a smile on your lips.

We lost a friend,
(A) part of ourselves,
It will never be the same!

Something has died
With you this day
Weíre the orphans of your smiles!

How could you?




4. I Won't Follow Him

Canít you feel
That I have changed my mind

About my lure of death
And suicide

Iíve felt myself really ashamed
Since the time

I lost one of my best friends
And my mind

(I) Wonít follow him!

I think that I would not do some-
Thing like that to the people
Who protected me when I was younger

But I canít really feel some hate
My friend was so afraid
That he has not realised

The pain he would make me feel
The pain he would make us feel
The pain he would make them feel

This wound that canít heal up
This mouth that wonít shut up
Remembering us that heís gone

He left this world behind
To run away
From depression

But I canít really forgive




5. It's The Same For Everyone

You wonít wait a long time,
We will join you soon
Itís a fateful crime
But it the same for everyone
We live our life and then we go

(I) know you were suffering
Watching us a last time
Emotional torture
But itís the same for everyone
We live our life and then we go

Everyoneís already lost someone...

How many friends, relatives and loves
Have we lost

Will it take end, will we be able to stop,
This endless pain

But no one is prepared
To live something
Like the suicide

Of a 21 years old Friend
Who lived his life in pain
And went before his end

Now that you are gone,
Lifeless as a stone
We have learned something,
That itís the same for everyone
We live our life,
And then we go

But we canít accept
To stay without you!
A common wish to die
But itís the same for everyone
Youíve left our life
(But) they have to go on.




6. Somewhere Else

Somewhere else,
Anywhere far from this place
(I) can no more breath
While I remember your face

Today again
(I) wonít come to weep for your remains
Canít find the strength
Oh yes Iím coward, yes Iím afraid

But please donít look at me now
I think that I wonít bear
To brave this confusion
Oh yes Iím coward but I donít care

Oh please donít look at me now
(I) Wonít come to stare at the show
Of your bed made of stone
Of the worst thing youíve ever done

I canít
Come to blossom your grave
My feelings
Should fall in pieces
(And) dissolve in my veins

I donít know if one day
I donít know if one day Iíll come
To read the beloved name
Engraved on your new home

I donít know if one day
I donít know if one day Iíll come
I donít think that I will
(Be)cause Iíll be somewhere else

I canít find the words
In front of your mother
I now that Iím sad
But I feel better than her

I canít imagine
The hell sheís been living in
Since the day youíve gone
You, the younger son.

Her feelings have felt in pieces
(And) dissolve in her Veins

ďThe difference between guilt and shame is very clear:
We feel guilty for what we do.
We feel shame for what we are.Ē




7. Joy & Happiness

My friend, we canít forget you
As you wanted us to do.
This letter youíve written...
These words... Your last deed.

We canít forget, we canít forget
The one you used to be.
But we will always smile
When weíll think about...
These great moments of joy and happiness.

But there is something
That we wonít forget either,
That will always be present
In our souls and in our minds:

Whenever we smile,
We canít take away this taste
That lingers in our mouths
(The) taste of eternal regret.

We miss you my beloved friend,
More than we thought it was possible.
We miss you my beloved friend,
It will never be the same (again).

(Be)cause all this time, all this time weíve
Passed together has changed us.

All this time, all this time
Obsess our thoughts every day.

And everyday weíll have a thought
For the soil in which you lay.




8. Transition




9. Quietly Kissing Death

What should Iíve said?
What should Iíve done?
What should Iíve guessed?
What sign should Iíve read on your face,
What sort of friend am I?
Iíve been so deaf Iíve been so blind.

I didnít understand your pain
And I feel so guilty my friend
I realise that for you
We didnít count enough to

Give you the strength
To fight for life
To face your pain

You have preferred
To close your eyes and run away.
I imagine your face
Quietly kissing Death

You should
Have found the strength
To fight for life
To face your pain

You have preferred
To close your eyes and run away.
I imagine your face
Quietly kissing Death

I can imagine your face
Quietly kissing death.




10. All...

All the things let undone,
All the smiles that are gone,
All the love you wonít know,
All the places you wonít go.




11. The Bathroom Monologue

I can remember a lot of moments with you
Talking and talking again
Dreaming on music
Becoming famous, playing with our idols
Joking about Nicolas car

Yes, a lot of times
So I canít understand yet
And I start to feel very cold
In this bath that is getting empty
Just like me

Iím speaking alone
Canít you realise?
Canít you realise?
Look at me now

I think I couldnít feel worse
Speaking to a ghost
The best friend I ever lost

Look at me now
You have to realise
My friend
How huge is
The mistake youíve done

No I couldnít feel worse

What have you done my friend
What the hell heís done something like that?
Why did you hide your pain?
Why didnít you ask for some help?
Maybe he did?
I think Iím lost
Yes I think Iím really lost
I donít know what to think
Thereís like emptiness of myself

A pathetic naked boy speaking to the walls
We could call it the bathroom monologue
What do you think about that?

But wherever you are I hope you keep laughing
Yes,
Just keep laughing.
