the nothing i feel

The nothing I feel The nothing I feel consumes from inside Some unknown pleasures that now are deprived Every time you reject the stranger within Don't know how to connect or how to begin No trace of it as I look into your eyes Each time that it happens a part of me dies What hard forged steel can force though your hide? The nothing I feel can never be bereaved How could you ever allow It to disappear? From forever, together It withered with a sneer My mind refuses to recall My eyes are dim, no sight at all I long to eradicate it all Just like a phantom limb It flowed like waves Throughout my soul It misbehaves, Not to control It tossed and turned Inside my mind Pleasures discerned Though not confined Can someone find the missing part? And quickly shove it through my breast All stars aligned Here in the dark I stand forsaken without words On the side o the piké Standing on a house of cards Reaching nothing but dislike For quite a while, trying hard To become just like you Yet Edens gate is ever barred Leaving me yearning for something true Don't want to feel The nothing inside me...

Forgotten How come my dreams are in color? my life in black and white I search my mind to discover What made the stars ignite Looking back after memories although I've seen it before Feels like it's been gone for centuries so nothing left to deplore I can't remember your face I can't recall your embrace I can't think of anything that makes it fall into place How could I possibly foresee not able to reminisce Just like a rerun on TV they never make'em like this Haunt me! Stalk me! Make me perceive Who you are Want me! Shock me! No make belief From afar

The Pink & the Black I try not to listen to what other people say Though I may be fucked up not in a threatening way No good in condemning what you don't understand and there´s no point pretending you're lending me a hand I'm trapped inside a smoky haze I see you move in mysterious ways Although my eyes try hard to gaze I still reside in this fatal maze The future The past Each day shall be our last The Darkness The light We'll dance all through the night So call it false addiction yet I can never leave Perhaps a quaint description of what I'll never achieve Call it a contradiction Or am I out of line? It bites me like affliction and starts the sharp incline Some people call it boredom I prefer to call it fate If I should determine the fear should start to abate So I put on some make up and I smile a fake goodbye The path is paved and cleared up No way of telling why

Independence Tonight, free at last Demands, all in the past The line has finally been crossed And I'm looking for my paradise lost As the cross is ever lifted off Seeing whoever I choose For, Hey, what's there to lose? Tell me Mister, what have I to lose? Tonight, alone again I'm out here, looking for a friend This hurt, you see, striving to apprehend Only with you, will I let the dark descend

Your lying virtue You took me to a distance place where nothing ever grows Told me there used to be some grass But where nobody knows And while you sung a song Of nights without a cause They said "all animals are equal" Yet covert matters may best not be disclosed You told me righteousness was more than I could afford And that in these days Some things are best to be ignored You promised me glory And remarkable rewards And spoke of pleasures That I never ever dreamed of before Tell me you jest Tell me they lie Make me believe in virtue Let me stay gullible for a while Remember how we shared a life through the gazing of our eyes Depending on technology then no one lives, yet nobody dies - You told me we're more alike than I could ever realize- and whispered that a new civilization is swiftly on the rise
