Track Name: Viva Decay
Everything is so fake and so unkind.
I've got the message.
There's another shame, another light.
My shadow grows around me.

There is no place where I should go.
These blades are close to my mouth.
Where have all those feelings gone?

Into the ground, into the unknown.
Too weak and scared to die now.
Where have all those feelings gone?

A state of grace. No setting sun.

Viva decay.
Enjoy this mess and take another break.
You're barely breathing.
Viva decay.
Enjoy this mess. There's no love, no harm,
no chemistry.
Track Name: Since My Shadow Became Warm
I've never felt these feelings
crawling on my own floor.
Identifying myself
with these thousand roaches on the wall.

Here fake smiles are so unkind.
Hell's like that hospital.
For me and for what it's worth,
take this soul but never let it go.

Emptiness is what remains to show.
Why did you go?
Desperation is my new front door.
And no key hole.

It seems I lost it all.
Homesickness gave me comfort
since my shadow became warm.
And, what remains for the one who remains?

And everybody's gonna die.
And I don't even know your secrets.
And there's a light that never shines
and It's cold as my ceiling.
The void I left behind
it's just a lie 'cause I can't go on.
No more bright eyes
since my shadow became warm.
Track Name: Breaking Bad
I walked into the mud.
I needed to pretend.
I don't remember anything but you were here.
It's not a cruel reaction. So, let's see how it goes.
Go away. Something bad grows when I have got nothing to show.

I took the blame. I choose the fire and the flames.
It's everything I need to set me free.
It's not a cruel reaction. So, let's see how it goes.
Go away. Something bad grows when I have got nothing to show.

I'm not afraid to sink for this moment.

Give me more than you could say.
Just something bitter, full of pain.
Give me what you gave to me
and I will give it to you everynight
I'm burning down this cage and I'm burning out alive.
I claim my own cries.

Take it slow and be afraid.
Take it slow and be afraid.
Just take it slow.

Give me more than you could say.
Just something bitter, full of pain.
Give me what you gave to me
and I will give it to you everynight
I'm burning down this cage and I'm burning out alive.

There's no time
to search another way.

There's nothing left to say. I swear,
There's nothing I can share.
I wore these crooked lines over my face every time.
Time after time.
Well, I burn it all away.

I'm sober and out of control.
Track Name: In Ruins
Dear mother, did you feel alone?
There was a time I never loved but it was so kind to me.
I'm having trouble facing fear today... Today...

I've hurt myself that easily
and then I've walked in silence.
It wasn't difficult to me. That's why I never found a home

Dear father, did you lose your words
on that hospital bed? Bad news were everything.
I'm having trouble facing truth today... Today...

I've hurt myself just losing sleep.
I've always thought in silence.
It wasn't difficult to me. That's why I never found a hope.

And days go by and I need to disappear.
And all I've got is in ruins. And all I've got is just a wreck.
It's not the gift that's scaring me but what bleeds inside.

Dying just to find out what it takes to feel the breeze inside.
With every shortcoming and with every shame.
Everything should be going well.
I came back from the murder's place.
and what is dead is part of me.

Everything should be going better.
Everything hasn't been that better.
Everything could be going worse.
I came back from the murder's place.
and what is dead is part of me.
Track Name: Long Time Ago
Forgotten neighborhood.
Another place for every new coward.
I couldn't wait. I had to go.
I fell asleep into that fog that's made of stone. London.

Like a war cry while everybody sleeps.
Did you cut another giving tree?
I don't wanna give
another scrap
of what is left of me. Correct the tale.

Another bad wound
you cannot see but it's all I've got.
Don't you believe? I wanna show
you another feeling that you might already know. Sorrow.

I need a damn prize from anybody here.
Did you put another spell on me?
I just wanna kill
and run away.
Well, nothing gold can stay. So, enjoy the crash.

And everything turns black upon your face.
Today,
It's not easier to clean what's dead and gone.

You'll never fly again. You know what it takes
to be
less brilliant than just a common worm.

You'll never smile into these flames again.
What a shame...
You were prettier six years ago.
Track Name: Is Disgust In Our Genes, Or Acquired In Childhood?
Have you crossed and broke your fingers?
A bitter lesson learned before its time.
There's no whisper to comfort me now.
Now that everything has fallen down.
I keep on wondering how.

There's no knife with cruel intentions.
Just a certain fact I left behind.
There's no building made to last. This test
has taken everything from my own rest.
How could I repair this hole?

Hearing loss is the last symptom.
Speaking less to let my eardrums safe.
I can not hear a goddamn scream.
How could I repair this hole?

This ceiling and these stains. Despair, despair...
It's pushing on my neck.
If everything has gone bad in my sight,
where is the last good thing of my kind?

I scattered all my organs on the ground.
I cannot find the difference between my heart and my bladder.
That's nice!

Where is the last good thing of my kind?
Track Name: No Mercy
I came to lock this pain outside
but I found it sleeping.
Into the night it came to life
reminding my own secrets.

I don't wanna hear no demon
whispering "I'm not sorry".

For what it's worth, to be alive
is just like falling to pieces.

I've found my place into the night,
where memories are bleeding.
Sometimes it's hard to testify
how dreary was your leaving.

I looked through the key hole
and my mind shouted "Don't you dare!"

The biggest loss of every kind,
a shout in a whisper.

I wake up knowing
I'm falling like thunders while you rest in peace. And...

...Hey! I need you more than ether.
It's something strong that's choking me.
A brand new thorn. My ego
is useless and helpless.
You know what I'm aching to be.

With you I've found a way to come back home,
but now I'm stuck in a dead end road.
No brand new hope.
I'm useless and helpless.
You know what I'm aching to be.

I'm sorry, but at least I tried.
Now I'm waiting for your calling.
This utopia keeps me alive.
A never ending drowning.
And everyday I'm feeling colder
realizing that there was no mercy for us,
for you,
for me.
