Track Name: red queen
why do i have to pay attention
why do i have to say stop
waiting for the day when i will be free
why do i have to say stop

wait till i burn to
wait till i turn to
wait till i plan to stop

raise up to the maximum height
temper brings us to the core that never stops
Track Name: egolution
you know it would be wise
to find shelter in disguise
you know it would apply
to find an echo of your mind

reciprocal – changing sides
blurring the hand in front of your eyes
well, it all will go away someday
but not now

old as souls can be
misguided hidden in sulci

raised to be kind and shallow
aged to deny and fall

kinda hard to be the one to say: “i told you so”

lightning splits some stones
bruises muscles, bruises bones
concussion damage acts as relief
finally you will perceive

brain tissue debris adjusting to gravity
forming an amniotic cavity
fane denies – so it will be denied
close your eyes until the anchor is aweigh
until movement strikes
until everything is flowing again
all but uneffected by the intermediate step you tried to accumulate
Track Name: off sound mind
timid sensations enthralling me – fall for me
cross over – cross out
keep your eyes low
don’t cross me
the quintessence of what is meant to be

a flicker in your tired eyes
the proove that you have seen it too
a spark transcending all the gloom
a glimpse of what is bane and boon

the faster you run
the harder you burn
scars you earn
things to learn
always concerned

you don´t want to turn around to face your fear
the look in your eyes would impact fine on my mind

noises in my head
a wish for silence is wearing me out
i tried to turn them off
but they went back on again
i run as hard as i can to get them off
to get them out of my head
i want them dead
i want them all gone

time for transition
breaking free – breaking thee
snap fingers – snap bones
violent thoughts – let it be
is it worth it? let it be
a notion that’s still coming back to me
question norm, question authority
the mantra that keeps crashing down on me

the faster you run
the harder you burn
scars you earn
things to learn
always concerned

you don´t want to turn around to face your fear
the look in your eyes would impact fine on my mind

noises in my head
a wish for silence has taken my youth
i tried to turn them off
but they went back on again
i run as hard as i can
to get them off
to get them out of my head
i want them dead
i want them all gone

the sun comes up
still aware of thee
with her rays in my eyes
it cracks down on me
the sensations so strong
i can barely breath
as i run
toward the light
inside my mind
my pace is getting steadier
when all the sudden
pain blooms in my head
i falter as
i feel the synapses snap
the hive’s agony
echos through my brain
without turning back
i go on until
all collective awareness fades away
i can feel the loss of the newborn
while catching my breath i feel a new sun
dawning inside my skull
it´s done
i’ve escaped from my own sound mind
Track Name: error-prone
i like to see clear
you say
always always
too much
on the mountains of pride

you got plenty of teeth to bite
one and another fist to fight
lips to make ‘em moan
a tongue as stick and stone
may your words stand on their own
may someone realize what you’ve already known

error-prone

ask anyone who might reflect
ask anyone who might consider to
ask anyone who might have listened
hit anyone who might reflect
hit anyone who might consider to

so i stay

without bones it’s easy to rest
so dig a hole – maybe up in the sky
and throw your shit down at false believers
don´t you dare to enter my square
don´t want you anywhere near
after all i´m consigner
and you’re receiver
error-prone
without bones it’s easy to rest
so dig a hole, maybe up in the sky

i still stay
so I stay

you say too much
on the mountains of pride
on the mountains of shame

one day maybe
there will be clarity
the illusion of life disappears
is there light in the fields of the void
a former moon millions of miles away
and i always say nothing
on the mountains of pride
Track Name: edaphon
i run ashore (over and over again)
but i see all
the familiar cracks
all these dots moving
slowly seizing around
where I lay
still
ready
to wake up somewhere above you
but i subside where i belong
if i focus my mind
i can still hear the sound
of my heart beating
now, where am I?
