When the sky burst inward

The clockwork’s running, the die is cast,
No wonder for the present, nor the past.
To cross the River of this paradox
I destroyed the temple and I shook the rocks
Into the nothingness,
the chaos and loneliness
I’m falling, I’m falling down.
The path is drawn, there’s no return
there is a sentence written for the fool.
Into the nothingness,
the chaos and loneliness
I’m falling, I’m falling down.
Screaming for vengeance
Vengeance for the souls...
There is no Return!
Into the blessed gears,
I’m dripping bloody tears
I’m falling, I’m falling down.
And now I’m a prisoner of vicious lust,
a blind man running in a trap of rust

A puppet in your hands

Look at the world I loved as a dreamer
you can see my rotten brain
Whyfore cry you now?
Look at that grotesque world Ya Ya Ya
Dusky reasons bring me away...
Bring me away!
And now you can
breath the world I loved as a poet
Can you feel yourself in me?
Whyfore cry you now?
Look at that weeping world Ya Ya Ya
Dusky tears on my wires, again!
My wires of pain, My wires of puppet
I’m a puppet, a puppet in your hands
Smell the world I loved as a killer
you can lick my bloody hands
Whyfore lie you now?
Look at that heartless world Ya Ya Ya
As you draw back my wires, again!
My wires insane
Cause you’re my curse, a poison in my goblet
My unforgettable anguish
as a puppet, A puppet in your hands!
It’s just a toxicant darkness
that can dismember my freedom
As a puppet, A puppet in your hands!
I’m a puppet, a puppet in your hands
Profane the world I loved as a sweetheart
you can drink my lifeblood
Whyfore love you now?
Look at that shamed world Ya Ya Ya
You can kiss my darkest desires!
My dark desires
Cause you’re my curse, a poison in my goblet
My unforgettable anguish
as a puppet, A puppet in your hands!
I’m a puppet, a puppet in your hands
Cause you’re my curse A poison in my goblet
My unforgettable anguish
as a puppet, A puppet in your hands!
It’s just a toxicant darkness
that can dismember my freedom
As a puppet, A puppet in your hands!
I’m a puppet, a puppet in your hands

The fabulous experiment

He felt the nighmare knock at his the door,
when he was alone,
like a swallow in the storm.
Was it the gear that killed the man?
Ah ah ah... I don’t wanna know.
But he let the nightmare cross the door.

Oh Oh Oh
Since what I am to tell is far from the lies,
anyone can witness for me.
You should believe this nightmarish fable
Listen to the truth I know.
Evil got him! Evil got him! Evil got him!
He felt the nighmare knock at the door
when he was alone,
like a swallow in the storm.
Was it the gear that killed the man?
I don’t want to know.
He let the nightmare cross the door.
Oh Oh Oh

Rusty dreams filling my horizon
there was nothing that I could do
You should believe in this nightmare fable
Listen to the truth I know.
Evil got him! Evil got him! Evil got him!
He felt the nighmare knock at the door
when he was alone,
like a swallow in the storm.
Was it the gear that killed the man?
I don’t want to know.
He let the nightmare cross the door.
He felt the nighmare knock at the door
when he was alone,
like a swallow in the storm.
Was it the gear that killed the man?
I don’t want to know.
He let the nightmare cross the door.
Ah ah ah! Evil got him!

Loser

I look in the mirror the masquerade of myself
and what I see is darkness.
My dirty confessions are painted on my face
with little drops of madness
I’m lost in a cage of illusions.
Will my juggling trick be revealed to mankind?
I’m a dreamer, I am
I’m a lover, I am
I’m a killer, I am
Prisoner of myself
I’m a liar, I Am
I’m a phantom, I Am
I’ve been tricked by myself
I’m a solitary man
Because I’m the truth six feet underfoot
I’m a tyrant, I Am
I’m a deadman, I Am
I’m the worm, yes I Am
The priest of my own end
Because I’m the truth six feet underfoot

The human machine (part II)

Torn is the soul of the poet
bitten he cries, those tears become rhymes.
Behold where lies the father of himself
In a rusty cage of gears and steam
The Lord of desolation is returning
Kneel down to the prophet of sin!
A fool believer and a brainless lover
buried in the ash of dreams
A Human Machine. Dusty poet, Human Machine
Remove the cinder from your tired eyes
and let the tears run through the soul
You’re not allowed to dry them
They will not return upstream
Nothing else for the crows.
Nothing will save your soul
No more tears for the rose
when the morning light froze
A Human Machine. Dusty poet, Human Machine
Remove the venom from your bleeding mouth
and let the silence be your fate
Dust off your best attire and lift your hat
take a breath and wear it for the grave.
Nothing else for the crows
Nothing will save your soul
No more tears for the rose
when the morning light froze

 King of ragamuffins

From emotion comes these words,
From the deepest depht of my soul
Like a retching unrestained,
merciless cruel and stronger!
Rides the king of Ragamuffins
creeping in this empty speech
Trust me baby it’s so hurtful,
that’s how I got a bloody nose!
Sanctuary of my greatest love
Beggar in the grave, here I’m the king.
I’m the king of Ragamuffins
I can see that clearly now, falling down the pit,
how the blades of my mistakes
turn out the moonlight
Should I disregard myself for being so blind
or should I be really proud of this jester king?
Sanctuary of my greatest love
Beggar in the grave, here I’m the king.
kill ‘em all, all my loves. I’m the king of Ragamuffins
Sanctuary of my greatest love
Beggar in the grave here I’m the king.
kill ‘em all, Life is afterlife

The prophet’s worm

Every wish will make you blind.
Every dream has got a price.

Tell me what you want
Tell me what you want
Yours is the answer, not mine!

No return, nothing to hide
Every wish will make you blind.
Every dream has got a price.

Don't let my madness return
I'm the prophet's worm.

Look at the mirror of the wise;
See your fear comes in disguise.

Tell me what you want
Tell me what you want

In your heart lost deep inside!

In the forest tied in chains;
feel the blood inside the veins
Only music will remain.

I'm not the deamon of lies
I'm the prophet's worm.

Is a blasphemy your crime
Your desire to give the life

Tell me what you want
Tell me what you want
No, I can't. This is your time

Seven bloody nights,
musical delights,
until the beauty sparks and shines.

Seven bloody nights,
musical delights,
until the beauty sparks and shines.
With your desire to give the life

Neuralectricity

Machines in motion, turn the gears
Close your eyes, Mesmerized
Lost in the ocean of my tears
Are the wise so disguised?
Push the connectors into the brain
Look inside or outside
Life magnetic and electric strain
Task Assigned, genocide
Neuralectricity
A cable in your mind
looking for new life
It’s just a mysterious secret design
Drink your potion face the fear
Close your eyes, Mesmerized
Lost in time of thousand years
Are the wise so disguised?
Neuralectricity
A cable in your mind
looking for new life
It’s just a mysterious secret design

Run through to the other side
I’ll be your father, I’ll be your mother
Magnetic Q-device
Another soul, another life.
Blasphemy project, electric blend
Look inside or outside
Life magnetic and this is the end
Task Assigned, genocide
Neuralectricity
A cable in your mind
looking for new life
It’s just a mysterious secret design
Run through to the other side
I’ll be your father, I’ll be your mother
Magnetic Q-device
Another soul, another life

Inspiration Recall

Thirst of dreams
Ride the storm of my desire

Running in the labyrinths
The labyrinths of gears
Toothed wheels in motion
Perturbation of my brain

Thirst of dreams
drops of pleasure, Inebriation

Running in the labyrinths
The labyrinths of gears
Toothed wheels in motion
Perturbation of my brain
Inspiration’s call
Echo of my human soul

Sight of dreams
Through the sweetest pulse
of lovers

Ladders of my human gears
moving my metallic limbs
Toothed wheels in motion
the journey will begins

Sight of dreams
Through the candy kisses of lovers

Running in the labyrinths
The labyrinths of gears
Toothed wheels in motion
Perturbation of the brain
Ladders of my human gears
moving my metallic limbs
Toothed wheels in motion
the journey will begins

Numbers decrypt my future
Dreams will crash my shades
You are my sweetest lover
Numbers
Poet
Sinner

Father, specter in the fog
You are my sentinel
Mother, until i’m back to life
the rain will wet my soul
Brothers, sisters
wherever without you
my rain rising from my heart
Sight of dreams
Through the sweetest pulse
of lovers

Running in the labyrinths
The labyrinths of gear
Toothed wheels in motion
the journey will begins

Thirst of dreams
drops of pleasure, Inebriation

Running in the labyrinths
The labyrinths of gears
Toothed wheels in motion
Perturbation of the brain
Inspiration’s call
Echo of my human soul

Numbers, decrypt my future
dreams, will crash my shades
You are, my sweetest lover
Numbers
Poet
Sinner
Again
