Track Name: Your Ruin, My Relief
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
Track Name: Breathing The Soil
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
Track Name: Behold A Burning Soul
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
Track Name: In The Wake Of My Demise
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
