The Cimmerian Years

1. Broken


2. My Precious Unknown

The growing of lifeThe change I could feelThe hope for a turningNot yet to revealThe power of lifeIs within mij reachSoftly awakeningA newbornNot for me to seeAnxiously waitingFor the big dayAnticipating your comingFulfilling our dreamsWe try to pretendOur minds are presetTo a happy endLife will never be the sameHope's taken from mereliving the momentThat came to beBut now there's a painWhere my heart used to beA million blank pagesAre staringRight back here at meAll I ever had is fadingLike a leaf drawn to the groundStill I feel my heart is yearningSince that daySince that day of hope and dispairI knew life would never be the sameAll the aching all the painCome stay with meSomeone please help meWhy don't you stay with me?

3. Second Mirror

Daily life, an inconvenient burdenA winding road we all have to takeSorrow, stress and numbing fear are overwhelming meGuide me through these cloudy days so I can regain controlEmbrace your soul to regain controlTo silence your fearEmbrace your soul to regain controlThe moment is nearYou drag yourself through dark and anxious placesYou blame your god for mistakes nobody madeQuestions asked, answers hiding in plain sightDoors they close, reflections of a truth once so brightCry so lonely / I tried so hard to pleaseTry so slowly / I try to find my peaceFearing these moments of confrontationCleaning my mind to avoid my frustrationGive up your contaminated disguiseDisinfect your intoxicated eyesLook through the mirror of ilusionsLook through the mirror at the man behind

4. No Regrets

Distorted spine and legs of lead, Unbearable silence and a spoiled stenchI cry dry tears, and hope with sudden fearsI try to hide my shame for you... this timeI close my eyes and try to hideI blame myself for all the painWill I regret my life on the other side? Is it worth playing this gameI won't even bother to explain so don't ask me to share my burden againPlease, don't judge me nowfor I must leave all of this behindI hear the sound of absent voicesdeep inside my headWhat made me behave this way?How could this happen? I thought I've left this behind, I'm cold insideLost in search for the answers, I'm lost this timeI'll try to hide my shame but it's me I'll betrayI'm cold now, I'm going back, tomorrow I'll find another way
Today started as a promising dayBut my grief has taken controlIt's too late now, all harm is donePlease don't cry in compassionI thought I've left this behind... I'm cold insideLost in search for the answers... I'm lost this timeIn silence I fade awayThis time I can't find myself in here

5. Fare Thee Well

No more vengeance, no more painI know your soul bleeds againI know I've lost the game this timeBecause your fear is mine...Somewhere between night and dayI witness your light fading awayThat look in your eyes is trying to reach meWhile the demons tear you awayPlease... come back... againI'm lost... without youPlease come back into the lightWe'll embrace your soul tonightWe can still make things rightAll grief will fade awayNo more vengeane no more painAll hate is quiet againAnd as my soul yearns for peaceI know I've lost you again

6. The Carnival of Miscreation

Welcome to the obscene A carnival fest you've never seenFille with desire and comfort in painwhere no man can resistconvince yourself and step right inComfort yourself for you know it's a singive in to your most selfish emotionsAnd enter a world of oblivionMisfits and freaks are welcoming youInto this brothel filled with decayWhere all hope for salvationIs just fading awayBrace yourself And step right inThe trip of a lifetimeIs about to beginWhores and Gents, please cast awayYour last bit of pride and decencyLean back and enjoy the rideYou're the one we'll sacrifice tonightYour most perverted skillswon't satisfy your greedy mindAll is set for you to leave it all behind this timeMy insanity is growing inside meIt's the delight of failureAmorphous creatures are laughing and dancingLeaving their marks to defeat meThe stench is draining my sense of realityThese images burn insideSilhouettes of pure demiseAre roaming through the nightEchoes of insanityThe splendour of evil insideYour most perverted skillswon't satisfy your greedy mindAll is set for you to leave it all behind one final timeLadies and gentlemen step right inAnd embrace yourself for the trip of a lifetimeGive in to your most intimate desiresAnd enter this realm of lustUnlike all others placesWelcome to the carnival of miscreationWhere pure sensation is quite a lie

7. Inner Voices

Narrowed down the voices in my headTo those who speak in silence'Cause all the others loudly shouting outResorts in utter violenceFeels like a storm is gathering inside my chestBecause of all your silenceHow can you do what you have doneWith sich a childlike innocence?Seems like it's just me who never knewWhat you were hidingSo what am I to do with all those hopesLife seems so very frighteningFeels like I'm draining myself insideOblivious and silentshuffling feet come slowly towards meDeadly and defiant

8. Unhealed

Caught within these dark and foul daysWe chose to go our seperate waysIt all seemed right and justifiedBut the sickened feelings were growing inside of meA years flew by and things were growing dimTwo unseperate souls each went their way in sinNothing more to discoverThe passion's gone but the guilt still remainsI know this gesture wasn't meant to besome unhealed scars between you and me ... I'm losing youWhen the pain emerges and strikes my heartand the longing for your touch carves in my mind... I'm begging youAnd as pain strikes my heartAnd the longing for your touch still standsI know this wasn't meant to beAs nothing's more destructiveNothing's more relentlessAs the bond between you and me

9. A Glance of Misperception

I looked myself in the eyes Perhaps a glance of misperceptionthe weary twilight in my soul I long for comforting wordsI'm scared but I try to smilerepentant for all my sinsWill I ever be the same again? I'll wait to face the prison of my lifeThe remnant of old and painful memoriesImperceptible to come, yet so harmful to allI taste love and hateA blindfold for a clear insightIncomprehensible delusions and denial I agonize my self-hatredI reminisce the endless afterbirthI fall on my kneesAnd surrender to my demiseI conceal myself right nowJust in case your darker half should try to get outIs it all woth while?'Cause near the end we all long to die...
