The input, I get from my senses, gathered in darkness Creating a lie in my brain, persisting as true, in hollow space I fail to see, to realize, the world turns in my eyes I cannot tell a hologram, when the hologram I Am Nothing, all is nothing and empty inside Dimensions and time is a lie Nothing, every universe, empty inside And you never lived, you just died Cosmological hoax, intricately veiled, deceiving you into perceiving Perceiving as real, the cage that you're in The order of chaos, the slave and the king Reality deduced to particles, unbound by time Decode creation into numbers, to find the reason why Why the world appears for my deceit A movie of youth, played by the dead endlessly Nothing, all is nothing and empty inside Dimensions and time is a lie Nothing, every universe empty inside And you never lived, you just died

Take your human centered view of the world And cast it aside How many times did mass extinction occur? How many species did die? Should be able to see it, by now We live on borrowed time The chance is stronger (with) every day (that) passes by We'll be erased from the book of life Remember when we were the masters of Earth? We ruled sea and land But now, our ghosts will in this planet remain Masters of Earth, buried in time There are things out there Spawning annihilation That leave whole worlds, they say, completely destroyed The chances are, the age of humans shall pass A long lost memory of our lives Our whole civilization, a palace made of sand Use your imagination, what happens when the tide will come No matter what you see, you hear, or you believe Life thrives on land and sea And then all dies, like you and me Ghosts of a planet, ghosts of the Earth

Many the nights, I have spent in debauchery With sinners and brothers and friends My time in Sodom, a virtue distilled And I cannot explain it, until this day We were so drunk, then we got high Made love to whores, Gomorrah nights When I got home and closed my eyes Soon after, something transformed my mind Epiphany, I stood enlightened In the darkness of the mind Where the ideas decipher All the meanings of your life What bliss is this? This bright abyss I'll deal with whatever tomorrow will bring Alas, in the morning, it vanished like steam A phantom epiphany, vague like a dream Epiphany, I stood enlightened In the darkness of the mind Where the ideas decipher All the meanings of your life Lethe, drowned in oblivion Lethe, this memory fades Lethe, I can't recreate the state of my mind, that glorious day

Serious, old, family man, disappointed with his love life Found a younger woman to make love, behind the back of his wife And when she came, bodies in flames Pills for erection and sexual games His mind was in pleasure and she felt the same Forgot of his weak heart, that stopped when he came When the family arrived on the scene Wife and daughters shocked, but their men smiled at him The sight of daddy naked, a smiling dead face His daughters cried to the crow, at the funeral place Well, everybody knows how my daddy has died His stiff body is stuck with a permanent smile A corpse with a smile, amusing death for a while Remnants of a happy ending A corpse with a smile and the guests will arrive A face so happy, makes you wanna die Open the casket lady, let them see They’re already whispering anyway, let them wish, they also die like this What is done is done, you know and you can always take something to learn It is final, move along, remember his smile as he burns Well, everybody knows how my daddy has died His stiff body is stuck with a permanent smile A corpse with a smile, amusing death for a while Remnants of a happy ending A corpse with a smile and the guests will arrive A face so happy, makes you wanna die

All religions in the world, they think they got it right The legend tells that in the past, with God they spoke, all right! Even if they' re isolated, far across the globe Someone will eventually, speak of Gods and make the others fall Either God is a senseless beast, watch us suffer, while he feasts Or the Gods that men speak of, are tales of dogma, written to control Took some time, but now I know You' re full of shit Keep your prejudice and Gods Could they be real? Just look upon your self Someone says, he spoke with God Either crazy, or he lies No one, ever spoke with God At least while he was alive Took some time, but now I know You' re full of shit Keep your prejudice and Gods Could they be real? Just look upon your self

Hard start, with a fearful awakening As a shock wave reached in our rooms Panic rose in a moment, like lightning What happened, at first, no one understood We made it to the street and tried to look around People were screaming: run for your lives The mountain top, above the town, has collapsed And pyroclastic flows wreck havoc for miles But in this moment of doom, oh baby Yeah I got carried away Before the sunset, we saw yesterday, oh baby He showed me you, in his most gentle rays The air around me got heated and it got me back to reality As someone shouted: keep running, it's catching on us and all behind us is dying We ain't gonna make it, I know it And there is one reason why I still run Adrenaline flood, in my blood stream But luck just run out, as we hear, the roar from behind My heart wouldn't let me, to tell her the truth The scene was unfolding our impending doom This artist of fire destroys, then creates Statues of living, depict of their death But in this moment of doom, oh baby Yeah I got carried away Before the sunset, we saw yesterday, oh baby He showed me you, in his most gentle rays

Man, what a strange creature you are Nothing can fill up your heart As if you had some void inside Nothing can keep you satisfied No respect for his own kind, no No respect for life at all Even sun must die Will be gone from the sky Live your life and enjoy the ride Time runs fast and even the sun must die Man, what a strange creature you are The best and the worst, in one mind The center of everything, everything lies Where you step your feet, on the land No respect for his own kind, no No respect for life at all Even sun must die Will be gone from the sky Live your life and enjoy the ride Time runs fast and even the sun must die Even sun must die
8.
Cast your shadow on a plane Make it dance until light fades See the way they fight in vain Like our shadows we remain Bound upon this earth we strain Exchanging love and pain Bitter feelings find their way Inside our minds and hearts, they stain Until we're full and let it out In a vicious circle of pain All this bitterness is building up inside And changes who I Am All this bitterness is building up and makes me sad This is not who I Am It may be harder than it seems Should not keep chasing bitter dreams For only shadows will be there for us, by the time we reach All the bitterness gathering inside Make it go away, you made it go away All the bitterness gathering inside my head Make it go away, you made it go away
9.
We mostly act based on belief That humans are the epitome Of universal evolution But if you better think of it We are no more than clever beasts Opportunistic creatures preying on the weak A mindless mass, a talking hiss Shut the voice that disagrees Even if it's logic calling And we are all guilty of this Behaved this way, for once at least And that is why the change is coming infrequently The slaves are rising Moralizing the means they use to become royalty Hail the kings of misery The king is slain, long live the king Will stop his people's suffering Transferring it to someone else Becoming the tyrant in his (predecessor' s) place All hail the king we want to be Hail the king of misery This system is flawed, why can't you see? Hail the kings of misery All hails to the king The small living tyrant within Fooling us to selectively see See their faults, though we know, if it was us in their place In their home, in their throne, much worse we might be The slaves are rising Moralizing the means they use to become royalty Hail the kings of misery
