lyrics

I’m condemned by these words
Which are written on these inscrutable stones

Caught in a roulette made of stones
This labyrinth is built with my own bones
It never follows to what I say
Always fooling me by leading me astray

The greater happiness is just the lesser agony
Still I can’t find the real bliss in me
It seems reality's a whore
And I keep loving her forever more

My walls become transparent
Appear to be a dam ponding night
And it’s breaking in front of me
Now midnight's crushing
In merciless, giant waves into my soul
While thundering clouds are chasing away
The stars from the sky

Burning dolefulness and crackling fear
Is this what it means to be a seer
It means everyone else is blind
While I see the restless frigidity in mankind

Am I the only one to resist this beast
To fail at finding cure for our disease
Or maybe we abuse me as a sacrifice
A scapegoat for our cocky lies

My walls become transparent
Appear to be a dam ponding night
And it’s breaking in front of me
Now midnight's crushing
In merciless, giant waves into my soul
While thundering clouds are chasing away
The stars from the sky

The curse is the loneliness
What if I never opened my eyes
I'd still dwell in this grey mess
And still deem it the best for me
So I chance to be a coward
And take a sleeping mask
May it erase every little spark
And may the acid leave nothing to ask

But when my eyesight was gone
And tears of joy couldn’t reach the air
I broke as I noticed there were still shadows
Screaming as shrill at me as I do
As I do

My walls become transparent
Appear to be a dam ponding night
And it’s breaking in front of me
Now midnight's crushing
In merciless, giant waves into my soul
While thundering clouds are chasing away
The stars from the sky
