Lyrics


THE PRISONER

He never prayed, never kneeled before his master
Sentenced to death, he never dropped a tear
The world outside is so much worse than he is
Writing its own history

Shadows appear on the red walls
His weary eyes are watching through the doors
He feels the presence of his friend
But solitude in this world never ends.

Maybe he should follow them
And never try to raise his hand
He should turn his back and let them all die
And let them all pass him by;
He’d rather die than loose his honor
He will never loose his thoughts
Now he has to watch his own body slaughtered
As the owl starts to sing.

His weary eyes are watching through the doors
He feels the presence of his friend
But solitude in this world never ends.

Traitors are there full of cowardice
People who scream without a language
Who knows where to go, how to find peace
And freedom is locked with a key
The fearless man has been for them
A lesson of life.

Money and glory
Crimes and betrayal
Terror and prayers

His weary eyes are watching through the doors
He feels the presence of his friend
But solitude in this world never ends.
Maybe he should follow them
And never try to raise his hand
He should turn his back and let them all die
But the injustice drove him mad.


HIDDEN

Somewhere, a sparkle of life
An invisible light
I know it’s still there
Remember, the cypress tree
But where could it be
I know it’s still there

Long ago, when the stories were written
You have called them to meet you
You have called them to see

The figures on the walls
The symbols of a world
Kept for so long
In secret and blood
He tries to explain, but it’s hard, it’s in vain
Colors and shapes they dance full of grace

Sometimes, a beautiful memory
From a different century
Awakens inside
Remember the ancient tree
When we used to hear
The song of the wind.

Long ago, when the stories were written
You have called them to meet you
You have called them to see

The figures on the walls
The symbols of a world
Kept for so long
In secret and blood
He tries to explain, but it’s hard, it’s in vain
Colors and shapes they dance full of grace

Inside the walls, you’re reading the old scripts
Another tree is shading your wish
You won the prize and you shared it with others
But still you don’t remember the place

You suffered too much
It’s over now
We’ll find it once more
We’re leaving now

The figures on the walls
The symbols of a world
Kept for so long
In secret and blood
He tries to explain, but it’s hard, it’s in vain
They don’t understand, the darkness still remains.


CONTRADICTION

Heat and dust and smoke and thirst,
Feel them how they conquer you
Everywhere, they will chase you
You might run to your corner.

Look, around you and decide
You, should never wonder why
Everywhere, they will chase you
You might run to your corner.

I need just one desire
Are you the one to offer me?
I feel awake
I understand
The sounds are fading
It’s not the same;
Feels like you’re in control,
Go now on the sharp edge
You feel it in your dreams
It’s there, it’s holding you
The choices hurt so bad
Essence of sorrow, of us;

Surrounded by some walls
I guess they’re my home
Infected with a sweet worm
My only friend
Separate ways meet in silence
When the hours break
Will you, stay beside me
You, should run.

Screams and words will feed your flesh
Don’t deny, the rest has passed
Everywhere they will chase you
You might run to your corner.

I need just one desire
Are you the one to offer me?
I feel awake
I understand
The sounds are fading
It’s not the same;
We played our game like fools
The comedy has no end
Let’s change the roles again
Let’s keep them satisfied
Desire hurts so bad, essence of sorrow, of us.

I feel a sort of calmness
It’s like a gentle wind
That moves the leaves in summer
But then the storm begins.
Still in my head, your words
Haunt me all the time
You made me feel the burning thirst
I’ve seen the kingdom of deceit.
