looking at myself - i never felt that weak before through eyes of compassion i see a bitter old man, who is trying to adore the young lovers, the young beautiful i keep on trying, it will break me down one day this old body is ready to face the pain digging into my last remains of self-esteem howling at the dead moon, departed ego digging my hole, burying myself it's coming closer, i can feel my own decay bleeding dry, dying restless emptiness embracing its loyal son staring at nothing, replacing my life with solitude this fragile laughter is killing me - it's killing me light-hearted minds, red flesh, blue eyes it's killing me - this fragile laughter is killing me
your city is dead! i used to believe their whispered lies i used to believe their stuttering your city is dead! burnt down, overflowed your city is dead! cripples are rising up tonight dead end girls, dead end boys tonight we are going underground behind drawn curtains we will outlive the fall of mankind trapped and tied up, keeping step with our fate trapped and tied up, seething with rage locked out from the outside, born to be the victims we die from our own past we are all born dead
we came in numbers and left in a haste facing a wall of jealousy and greed our priorities are changing day by day how can you deny? how can you ignore? how can you deny? take back the ravens, send them through troubled air the hatcheries are waiting, fill them with your despair take back the ravens, take back the ravens the hatcheries are waiting, fill them with your despair i'm counting my teeth, sure i'm gonna loose them all armed with desperation, blessed by my broken dreams ready to bring it to an end all we have left is a memory of better days a spark of hope remaining to burn down soon walls falling down crushing my so-called life we start to question our actions, question ourselves in the end we're questioning the whole entire world their eyes are fixing our failures forming our words into weapons and through my bitter eyes i see everything that i loved so much turns into the counterpart of my gentle memories words can't express my hate fists can't release this anger we're going down together and forever my beloved fellow, we are losing heart my beloved friends, we are losing heart
i just can't spread my arms as wide as i still love you and for gods sake i have to admit it's just how the wise and old say love's not dying it's thick water, pouring into all direction but when the tide goes out i just can't stand that silence here i lie with no emotion eating up myself all night as i try to interpret every single word you wrote it's a constant fear, a constant state of selfishness miles to go to find myself mountains to climb to overview it all ages left to stick to sincere ideas on top of nothing, it's hard to see a light on top of nothing i was born, i was raised under a star of eagerness walking with my fellows faith and aspiration take back what belongs to me
i feel the same for you, the same as you do for me a storm is rising up, it's closing in on us through all the stormy times we defy the bitter days bold hearts will find a way to resist and there might be days, i'm sure there will be when trust seems to burn off slowly we are gonna walk this road twice as sure as we are now no hollow words, blind trust in what we are blind trust it's the confidence of a man who believes in you with honesty and a genuine heart it's a promise made it's no compromise to care no waste of time to dare for a heart that's beating next to yours counting hours, counting days it's the hard way to go it's a promise and this promise is made to you it`s no compromise to trust regardless the burden of the past it's no compromise no compromise and sure the fists of time will harm you in uncertain moments try to beat the courage out of you try to pull you down, take all your will you find yourself distracted with pain in a world of questions and self-doubt but if we only move along if we only trust in ourselves if we focus on the essence of "you and me" and in "me and you" then we are ready to fight for our cause to defeat time and routine
