As a desolated subway As an empty city street It takes me away Towards oceans of concrete A grey walk into the void Through faceless humans Nauseating melancholy Suburban distress Lifeless as my jaded eyes... Pitch black misery Dead leaves in rainy afternoons Cold - Cold sidewalks at night Frozen by bleak neon lights Lifeless as my jaded eyes... Our sight is broken by a train This time I know it will be the last one A reflection of the subway (Inside your eyes) Waiting for the last train of this endless night Lifeless as my jaded eyes... To fade into the dark To run away towards another grey Another grey suicidal day Subway Apathy crawls in me Blackness Pale grey walls Dark landscapes of iron Deep inside my soul

Last night I walked again that soil, places in my mind Remembrances as cold pieces of glass Blood red stained mirrors lie broken upon the floor A time so far - Something we can’t recall I'll take your hand towards the night within the realms of the unlight You won't forget the day when you cross the solitude ways Deserted houses - Haven of mine Tombs under eternal fog and frost The pool of blood is turning cold, as I watch my reflection becoming red as December's dusk I'll take your hand towards the night where feeling dead just feels alright You can't avoid the day When you reach the solitude ways You're gonna live the meaning of departing To die alone in the night as tears flow with the rain Loneliness, coldness and bloodlust Alcohol, razorblades and the same old places Blood, tears and semen the only human things will be left in me? I love the night and its loss of life Joy rots inside the wastelands of my heart To roam alone towards the nothingness To a sunless place where silence dwells
3.
Sickness inside of me, another night to dream your killing Unpunished- Filled with self-esteem My Goddess will be grateful Naked bodies hacked to pieces Sweet women' faces twisted and mutilated Tied to a rope in the dark of these rooms Force-fed with blood and cum My vision of heaven is the vision of hell itself A raving point of exit, the destruction of every dream and hope Today's youth discomfort - Fuel for the Propaganda engine I'll slaughter your future and rape your new-born children You don't exist, you never existed My art is made of gore and entrails Paintings of cruelty to design your unexisting lives Your breath is dying out frame after frame This movie is no more blue We painted blue with black and flesh with blood-red You suffer your hell on Earth To jerk-off as they cut you to pieces To zoom on your agonizing desperate eyes To stare at your now eternal looks of terror Your lives never meant anything to me. To look at your empty faces dressing your own dead-skin masks To think of your dreams I butchered at birth No one is innocent No one is innocent Now I finally consumed my dish best served cold You fucking die, I become God.

Lying in a dark corner The black candle light is dying out Trying to refuse this suffering As coldness burns your pale naked flesh You faced your fears a thousand times Endless doubts - Life of paranoia You try to find a way out From this state of suicidal urge You watch with empty eyes the blade As tears begin to fall down your face Another night alone with yourself At one with melancholy and depression Loneliness arises from the past You will not bear this torment longer As you try to hide the painful tears Frustration increases in your soul Reminding when you felt so high Feeling nausea in your lungs, suffering You try to sleep to ignore this madness But this bed now feels like it's your own tomb Now you know it's all too late to save you You keep on dreaming of past years You can't feel this warmth anymore They turned your existence in a terminal disease You know all you once called life ends today As joy disappears forever, flying far away All emotions inside of you are dead and gone You can't stand this silence, but now you're alone You are alone Where did they go when you needed them? Never again Steal my corpse, motherfucker

I watched into the burning sun. My eyes filles with obsession. An eternal walk towards nothing. An empty road, as long as my eternal sickness. I watched into a dead horizon. My blood falls into the sun. My thoughts drown into emptiness. Stench of death in the air. The sickness of a summer afternoon. My sticky flesh covered by insects. A dream of naked bodies dying on meathooks. The smell of your slaughtered whore-meat rotting under a painful sun. Your last stop - Dead end. My twisted visions revealed to you. You'll never understand this ravishing desire for demise. Hanged dolls, sing-song. Bones swinging endlessly. Hot winds of a funeral day. I walked through the same old walls. I smelled the same old dust. Dust of forgotten times. Dust of shallow lives.

When my feeding time, She pushed food through the door. I crawl towards the cracks of light. Sometimes I can't find my way. Newspapers spread around. Soaking all that they can. A cleaning is due again A good hosing down The lady whom I feel maternal love for Cannot look me in the eyes. But I see hers and they are blue. And they cock and twist and masturbate! I said so Black windows of paint, I scratched with my nails. I see others just like me. Why do they not try to escape? They bring out the older ones. They point at my way. The older ones come with lights. And take my family away. And very later I have learned To accept some friends of ridicule. My whole existence is for your amusement. And that is why I'm here with you! I said so

Lost among those waves Brought to you again A splendour of decadence Still feels like I've been here before Mesmerized, spirit-like Through dark paths at night Like a Kinski nightmare A ravishing atmosphere Melancholy enthroned When carnival is gone we're all alone In the darkness Shipways are silent, only the wind howls And the echoes of ghosts Screaming voicelessly to me Mesmerized, spirit-like Through dark paths at night Like spectres over Venice Laguna arise and take my grief away Her breeze caresses me and leaves my soul to wander forever I wonder what this cold life Will bring on my way How things will be When I'll walk through this city one day One day
8.
Love's burial ground... You abortion of life You cherish all the things you're livin' for Your only pitiful victories in your pathetic existence Drowned in your well-being Your hapiness won't be eternal My hate for you is longer than life itself A strong will to erase your earthly existence The desire of cutting your wrists And let you die bleeding Without identity- A worthless subhuman being Another waste to increase your sickening race I'm just waiting for the punishment due I'm just waiting to piss on your desecrated tomb The vision of my face in your dying eyes Your useless prayers I will not hear You beg me to save you As I put your head down into the burial ground I'm shivering down my spine The ecstasy of buried love finally is mine.
9.
Observe the snow under which I lie with empty eyes Losing life, remembrances of cries Frozen images of last sick days The forceless body hanged shows me ill-fated ways Recalling desolation, no one cried my death The acrid taste of rotting takes my breath away My violet lips covered with frost The paleness of those walls is lost... It’s fucking lost The winter grows cold It takes me into the frame of dust and old The silence in me...Please Death set me free Fallin' upon my buried coffin, the snow freezes my last smile And the tears are crystallized But the pain remains in me Still and cold and dead- My body lies under the ground A withered flower falls on me, upon the ice of my grave Entombed By Winter... Take me away, take me where I'm born Embrace me in your inhuman angst Tonight I dreamed it again The place where I constantly wander So far and wrapped in darkness It stands as the incarnation of my obsessions My soul is leaving my body once more As I enter those wretched ancient walls Corridors of post-mortem existence I breathe the evilness of dark deserted rooms The smell of distant places in my dreams Nostalgia, take me home...

Scars 07:35
Remembrances Once more you're there This life burned out fast Faded pictures of yesterday My best and worst memories Will be forever here Another night - Bleak fading lights You're growing old with them Burning grief now consumes you You're turning to dust Another day - Is turning grey Some nights you burn your pictures When you come home from these useless days And you dream of past joys Then you fall again into loneliness And your blood streams in remembrance When you grieve into darkness And your scars release blood Sometimes you would have wanted to die To leave at last good memories of you A desert inside Cold blue dust is falling on your eyes You're flying away Dreaming of those bittersweet days Now you watch these opened wounds For every cut you lose another fear All of us are painful scars, drops of blood falling in an endless sea of sadness.
11.
Right here, all by myself I ain't got no one else The situation is bleeding me There's no relief for a person like me Depression's got a hold of me Depression- I gotta break free Depression's got a hold of me Depression's gonna kill me I ain't got no friends to call my own I just sit here all alone There's no girls that want to touch me I don't need your goddamn sympathy Depression's got a hold of me Depression- I gotta break free Depression's got a hold of me Depression's gonna kill me Everybody just get away I'm gonna boil over inside today They say things are gonna get better All I know is they fuckin' better Depression's got a hold of me Depression- I gotta break free Depression's got a hold of me Depression's gonna kill me Depression's got a hold of me Depression- I gotta break free Depression's got a hold of me Depression's gonna kill me
