Intro 00:44
Chasms 03:45
Floating on the sea of unconscious Hold your breath and look down to the bottom Like a cracked and leaking wall of sound Streams are flowing through the chasms, split the surface into plates Take a bottle drink it down, wish you emanated less Void and dissonant vibrations Dive deep enough to reach the streams Flowing out of inner chasms Draw and drink it from the source and Your aura vibrates in unison The sensitive may dare, the sufferer was there You have nothing left to lose, you have nothing left to fear Face the darkest chasms, drink from the stream Light's pulsating in the core, blinded by surrounding dark You are held back by the fear of obscurity Tied hands are striving for the source Leave the empty bottle floating A muse is chanting your way Share your wondering with the wanderer and Feel auras vibrate in unison
Outcast 04:06
Consumerism foundation Capitalism in control Society Hollow hypocrisy You spend your days in self-exile Locked in your self-forged golden cage At times it feels More like rusty cocoon Loner, not misanthropist Years spent as a recluse Lack of communication Die from social starvation You need to be a part of it If you want to survive Obey the rules to some extent To reintegrate yourself You'll never fully conform But you have to come to terms Any achievement of yours is Only real when it's shared Wake up in your life's changing room Buried by piles of dismissed clothes You can't remember What you look like when you're naked When you have nothing left to lose Can tear away the clothes your wear To play your role In this life's fucking lie
Lighthouses 04:47
Lighthouse, out in the darkness Bearer of delightful gifts Loner not meant to meet Outsider Supposed to see not one other light Makers spread them away Preventing them from crossing their beams If ever rays should reflect Lighthouses Would become aware of each other's existence Terrified at first Have never seen a light Before their own What they were kept away from is here Inspire each other Project away their fear Mutually urge Creative escalation Lighthouses, sooner or later Sadly resign to seclusion Emanate for no one else Lonely Eventually they turn off their light Earthquake, displacing plates Floating over the tide Bump into each other Lighthouses Meet and can barely believe their own senses Their engraved reflections Holograms of their love Becoming one Makers who could create themselves Their chains now broken Shadow away diseases When lighthouses meet The gods themselves contend in vain
Aura 04:08
How do you feel? Boat How old are you? Dog If this is real I refuse to believe it Purr the cat woman Pollution in her bowl Resentment and bottles Coffee cup, cat, sun Where is your god now? Away from here Creating sinners Too busy suffering to death Set himself hanging from a cross Away from here He doesn't love us Just like a parent does I would have never let this happen To you, my son Dark empty room Down on my knees Your hand on my shoulder Puke light to the ceiling Glide on the woods Chop trees throwing lightnings Adopt match-headed kids Coffee cup, cat, sun Where is your god now? Away from here Manipulators Try to persuade us We must be suffering to death  Driven by fear Mass fancy vision Either I don't know what love is Or he does not love us at all Away from here
Mirror 02:57
The man in the mirror talks despite my lips He continues moving, though I just stand still Laughs at what I do and preaches what I should I reach out hands to his neck, only punch the glass Take the mirror off the wall Lift it up, then drop it on my head Unite my two selves Drip blood on splintered glass Wish I felt the mirror bend and fit my shape Melt down, wrap my body, penetrate my lungs At last I meet my man and we become one Or shards will cut my throat and I will bleed to death
Destination 03:30
Strive to understand What is significant to me What I once was Is just a dream Where do you want to go? Where are you going to? You, do you know The reason why? You feel out of your place Change keeping the pace Just wait until Your destination finds you What is the whole point Of spending your entire life Trying to grasp The point of life? I wondered for a while In the alcoholism's lair Escaped with the help Of my white friend What difference does it make? You don't have the time it takes Just wait until Stop searching pointlessly You will be lucky if Your destination finds you
Scraps 05:55
Persistent feeling of ill will Though I resent no injury Open wounds and scars So many tales to tell the world, but no one listens Together we contribute To universal beauty Too bad it won't last Nature creates its self-destruction weapons Under the shower clairvoyance Tentatively reanimate Love dying Balls aching Watch TV Against melancholia Lethargic turtle, curlew's nest Hand-feed me, change my diaper My happy pill please! Dare not, don't praise me, masturbate my ego Drunk till the ocean, got lost Scum feels attractive when it lures flies Don't rub your breasts on me Your cock is not with you, not here, tonight
Sevle 05:06
Through the ash That my clear eyes Obfuscate and conceal You alone Could enthuse The elf of future worlds Beyond the infinite Nouns and their opposites In which we have declined Behind the distant Transmutation In which we've transfigured We strive to hide the love that remains I know, you know Though years have passed Still sometimes nothing signifies without you Sparks at first touch Fire blows up Burns us down 'til consumed Being attracted Then repelled Nearness annihilates Ash and mud Hazy shards My best friend your fallback Hope bled out Disaffection I beg you let me go We had to learn to live apart We know, he knows Charming bud of summer morning blossomed When your blond angel perched on your lap
Organ 03:44
Among my fields Of gold and green Sticky bounds are marked by silkworm-eaten rows of mulberry trees Concrete pipes are growing from the ground Scattered ranks Of different heights Every concrete pipe contains another one of transparent glass Inside each glass pipe stands a naked man Bodies lacking motion Sunk in amniotic fluid Their underdeveloped eyes can't see Still they look up to the skies And they sing Till the skies are blue No matter what They sing Despite everything They keep on singing out No air streams Through their nostrils Not one bubble rises up through the thick fluid from their lungs The emanation is a flow of melody Through their substance They carry impressions The pipes of the organ harmonically vibrate alive Drawing melodies from their deep common ground And they sing Till the skies are blue No matter what They sing Despite everything They do nothing but They sing They don't give a damn If no one listens They sing If you're there or not They're not singing for you
Fugue 07:06
In my twisted inner city Till the darkness' eyes are shut, I see I don't want to spend much time aware, for I could feel All the vacuousness surrounding me Swallowed up, where everything connects Stuff myself within to compensate Hear your footsteps getting closer in the corridor Play my music louder over it Identities conflict My altered memories Dissociate myself from me Disorder rises Pulses to escape I don't want to run away Please don't let this be again Take my hand and make me stay Tell me it's going to be ok Still remember how it burst Now I freeze when you get close to me I'm too scared to take a deeper dive into myself Where nothing is forever anymore Stiffening time by jerking it is vain You cry away your makeup, red-eyed cloud When your perfume burns like flashes knocking on my door I pretend I'm playing too loud to hear
