Donau 04:43
With heavy hearts On these frozen shores we stepped down From these bare remains, hollow as caves We stand dead Me and the ground It's gonna be the last time A winter's sham Resilience to bitter cold Soldiers and machine guns Roped us in three, shot the middle one Just like sacks we tumbled down Floating through big slabs of ice For all I did, all for nothing All my life fading before my eyes The end is just a shot away Kill three birds with one stone Donau Inside your womb A graveyard beneath the murky waves Do you remember Waters turning red Loglike bodies Afloat under the dead sun With heavy hearts From these frozen shores we depart Watch these bare remains, how they escape Becoming dead Donau Inside your womb A graveyard beneath the frozen waves Do you remember Blue giving way to red Lifeless bodies Afloat under the absent sky

Corridors The vaste seaside Watch the waves break We're swept away And reabsorbed by the tide The tide we yearned for That no one seems to recall The shores The night The moon Consumed by mistral I lie awaiting I lie awaiting the chime Of seabirds flying about And rise above Cold is the tide We're buried and soaked United we sink Into the ocean Still there was a time We used to be gods Those times are dead Tide against us With no direction We walked the same shores The cold bit like fire Tide against us Chaos, our last chance To be carried away by the storm Cold is the tide We're buried and soaked United we sink Into the ocean Still there was a time We used to be gods Those times are dead Tide against us The shores The night The moon Consumed by mistral I lie awaiting I lie awaiting your eyes

Concealed I'm sitting there Numb, unable to react Unreal Abandoned there Like a spectre in the dark I was born a quiet man I was lured into a trap Swallowing pills every day I don't know who I am Unsafe I'm dying there Eating my very own heart out Rabid souls We become taint Too taint to see the light  Cries of torment, cries of pain Pierce through the city They would never go away Time has come to realize we're condemned We'll die screaming inside the house of cries Altered  I see you there Tying my feet to the ground I'd wish To see the chains break And vanish out of sight I would scream if I had voice left I would tear my chords apart Nothing heals, all deteriorates Am I left here to die?

A slow procession to the burial Dressed up just right for an early ceremony Every day we celebrate the funeral of mankind Years of reveries gone down the drain We have been taught to follow the prints To reach the edge of human stupidity We break the coherence we tend to keep The future is a torn up black dirty drape One day I'll be reaching home A whole life to reconstruct All our dreams are gonna hang so high Bitter taste, nothing but a rough sorrow Will we remain when everything will fall? Dead end maze, are we the ones to follow? Black drapes for tomorrow We have been taught to see it differently And to imagine a blooming future Yet we are blind to a greater movie All we can see are these black flags waving One day I'll be reaching home A whole life to reconstruct All our dreams are gonna end sometime

This valley of ashes I'm walking alone Night has flooded my road Soon it will be dawn I can see the enemy Just the two of us The battle's in action And it rages on Like a sick god puts his children on hold I would rejoice to watch my enemy go I'm a stranger to this valley unknown My desire is to grieve no more All my fleet has drowned Symptom: castaway How long will I endure? Carry on, my tiny hope I'm roaming alone Till my feet will guide me I'll pretend to survive I can't beat the enemy I fought and I lost A war can't be endless We're born to succumb Like a sick god puts his children on hold I would rejoice to watch my enemy go I'm a stranger to this valley unknown My desire is to grieve no more Sick is the world we'll leave behind  Carry on, my hope

All the ships have sailed  From the kingdom carved out on lies So sick of giving in Feel the sunrise Share the same fall May the downfall be eternal May the landing be so sweet Will we be colleagues in despair? May the fragile be the strongest May the hopeless be the judge Of your life consumed by tragedy Falling Crumbling We ain't ashes We chose fire Beating Burning  We ain't ashes We chose fire May the unsung be remembered May the wretched be the king A grief's empire May the mountains be the flesh May the branches be the bones Our bones Freedom to fall As the heaviest teardrop gushes Feel these smothered flames How they long to be fired up Dreams of stars aloof I want you to stand by me For the tears that we swallow For the true black that we cry After all, stains will stay For the routine, for the logic For the days left undone Burn them down, let them burn

Her Majesty Life Please help me to hold dear my inner grey And always to reveal My common glee Born into a thousand storms Clung to affliction I witnessed a dozen falls Altogether His Majesty Woe Please help me to believe in misery And never to reveal Every fear lying within The blue tinged cold light will keep us alive We'll be neighbours to the stars The limit is the aura I can't explain why Read between the lights Stare into the void As the earth keeps spinning Born into a thousand storms Clung to affliction I witnessed a dozen falls Altogether Countless times  A path to hell and back And whenever we return We'll kiss the soil Save a tear for the living We will rise again In joy and woe Cold days ahead Will help me to release my darkest soul Long days ahead Will never take the reins of my cursed soul

Bound to ice and snow Foundations groan as I pass by World's longest graveyard down my toes The longest one of all I will see you go I will see you go On the sullen route of silence and cold I will see you go Gusts of wind will blow Death's white cloak meets the eye Mourning a man at every step Every step I take I will see you go I will see you go On the trodden road where memories hurt I will see you go I am about to cross emptiness I'll take you on a ride on the road of bones To see the thin line beyond which every soul falls apart Never healed, deeper scars never gone Bones exiled laid down in gravel offer no resistance I'll take you on a ride throughout the memory lane To revive all hearts who dwell in permafrost Come meet me below, below the ice Streams reclaim the road Yonder where blood used to run Whereas you think no one could ever live It is actually impossible to leave Thus we survive On the road of bones I can't look back Journey to the world's end A sad tale of white A pole of cruelty and winter Few steps away to none A prison unassailable This prison of mine Call it a day, returning from war Wounds leak again, defiling the snow Guide me away till my heart will thaw Nothing here melts away How deep is the snow
