Your Ruin, My Relief Verse 1: Caging myself beyond all reason Witnessing the madness within I am prisoner and jail guard I'm virus and infected Merging it all I am left a nervous wreck Losing focus and losing track Who's still preventing escape I cry Finally perceiving my tears' reflection Pre-chorus 1: Shattering the mirror This impostor made of glass I realize my foolishness And how this all could ever last Verse 2: Trading my love for mercy My self-respect for surrender Accepting my emotional suicide Dead inside I crave for salvation Crave for this hell to end All that's left is to let you feel We're done Pre-chorus 2: Shattering the mirror This impostor made of glass I realize my foolishness And how this all could ever last Chorus: Turning my back on you I return the hell you put me through Now these days will end The days you mauled my feeding hand Bridge: Your Ruin, My Relief! Your Ruin, My Relief! Release me now! Lead: Schafberger Chorus: Turning my back on you I return the hell you put me through Now these days will end The days you mauled my feeding hand
2.
Breathing The Soil Verse 1: Scattered memories on a dusted shelf Exhibited obviously only To make sure that your so-called experience of life Is displayed for people’s envy This is all your life can offer For I know these feet never hurt like mine But it makes me release all the pain from within A shape where I’m free of fear and sin Pre-chorus 1: In search for snowfields and oases And all that’s in between Verse 2: Perambulate all known terra firma From Ayer’s Rock to Cheop’s Lair Wash of the sand in Amazon River And desiccate in the Valley Of Death All the things I need to be Can’t be grabbed by mortal hands They are locked so deep within my soul Never to be taken away from me Chorus: I follow my heart to take me home Just to leave again and continue to roam Verse 3: Time after time I come back to the place Where I once left and I will leave again For I will not rest till I know What made me choose this path Nothing compares to learn the beauty of it all by yourself Chorus: I follow my heart to take me home Just to leave again and continue to roam Leads: Schafberger/Kötterl/Schafberger/Kötterl Pre-chorus 2: Still searching snowfields and oases And all that’s in between Chorus: I follow my heart to take me home Just to leave again and continue to roam
3.
Behold A Burning Soul Verse 1: Turning back is out of hand With all I dread unleashed These thought are eating me up from within As teaching my tongue to teach you Chorus: Could you ever understand me on the inside Where all the wishes grow Could you ever understand and have some insight To where all the fear takes hold Verse 2: Counting my steps on this burning ground The way back overgrown with thorns With the ghost of a chance and shivering hands I pass the point of no return Chorus: Could you ever understand me on the inside Where all the wishes grow Could you ever understand and have some insight To where all the fear takes hold Leads: Schafberger/Kötterl Chorus: Could you ever understand me on the inside Where all the wishes grow Could you ever understand and have some insight To where all the fear takes hold Behold A Burning Soul Behold my burning soul

In The Wake Of My Demise Verse 1: Surrounded by fingers pointing At the futility of my life I feel so unwelcome For my demise they strive Suffering this self-loathing I start to tie my own noose The coin gets flipped another time Heads – you win, Tails – I lose Verse 2: Paranoia is the next step on my way To a state where all I feel Are the eyes burning holes into my back The night of the unspoken rules I will take my soul and flee And leave them my body to feast on I will leave them my heart to devour Pre-chorus: In The Wake Of My Demise the world rebuilds itself Wipe me off the surface and the world rebuilds itself Chorus: Watching angels die I remember why Why the stars can’t lead me home Alone I stray Towards old Gaia’s end For all my sorrow Will soon be safe In her hands Bridge: Still this road is long and winding My path won’t seem to end But turning back I will face lies Nothing but lies! Lead: Kötterl Verse 3: Surrounded by fingers pointing At the futility that I bear I feel so unwelcome Why would they even care Suffering this self-loathing I just did not want to be used The coin gets flipped this one last time Heads – I win, Tails – you lose Chorus: Watching angels die I remember why Why the stars can’t lead me home Alone I stray Towards old Gaia’s end For all my sorrow Will soon be safe In her hands
