Track Name: The Great Escape
Finally I'm able to process
What I sense
Jaw hit the floor
Life's colors cloud my brain

Human offers me so many abilities
My ideas will come to life instantly
Seeing bright lights shinning from everywhere
In this temple of wonders I'll find myself

So many surrounding me
They smile and they wave their hands:
"Come here...
I'll show you so much more
Far beyond what you could imagine
What's this you're waiting for
Come to me and take my hand now!

Look at those
Just like you
Can't wait for the ride
Witness all the phenomenons of mankind

Feel free to entertain yourself as much as you want
Got plenty of time before you are on your own
I'll take care of you all..."

Oh, human! Where have you been before?
I'm so happy to just realize myself

It's so overwhelmingly exciting
To be in the spotlight of the world's attention
Catching all those loving glances

Am I really more than just a piece of meat in their eyes
A simple untouched empty page
Oh, please just fill me up with something
Give me this treasure that you own

Out of eternal void
Into the endless joy
Gulping with curiosity
Can't wait to try it all

Stepping on every rake there could ever be
Got no other choice
But to pull the bull by the thorns
Track Name: Don't Eat Nails
Tastes like rusty steel
Just yet won't conclude anything
First impression's usually misleading
Guess I'll just keep swallowing

Gulping
Choking
Gonna have to change something
But what if those few are different?

Spin them slowly in my hands
Two shiny silver, two virgin nails
So perfect and almost identical
Will check them both out just in case

Shove them
Deeper
Won't stop until it starts bleeding

Then lick them both and try not to throw up
It hurts like hell but how can I interrupt
This
It has to be done

It hurts so much
They cut and stab

Still frustration hurts even more
And curiosity drives me to hold on and on and on and...

Carved those few out of a mammoth's horn
Hope now, somehow, it's gonna work

Holy shit
I think I'm gonna have to admit it
Don't eat nails, better save yourselves
Lock the doors, hide underneath your beds

Kill the lights, crawl in your comfort zone
Track Name: The Shattering Shell
My little precious thing
How come you laid to waste
So unfamiliar and pale
What's happened to your face

It stares at me through your eyes
This crystal fortress, so cold it's become
It speaks to me with your voice of an angel
That used to to sing me to sleep

Look at me now, what do you see?
A lunatic soul lost in it's sick dreams
Urging to find it's only retreat
My precious thing, where do you hide?
Are you still here or have you died?
Forgive my sins, replace the alien

Vanish, you sleazy plague
She must be somewhere near
Reborn her in this shell
Leave you disgusting freak

How come so suddenly
You have become what I feared the most
One alone I ain't worth a thing
Somehow I need to do something

I'll beat you to death, I'll burn your lips
I will dig inside and chew the meat
And don't you dare to cry her tears
Get the fuck out, you parasite,
She may be gone but the shell is mine

Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter
Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter,
Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter, crumble

Your true beauty lied between it's golden walls
Your lullabies came out of those rotten lungs
Your true love poured out of those cloudy eyes

Finally here you are
So fragile
One gentle touch and I lose you...
Track Name: Of Japanese Astronomy
Hold on
Do not leave just yet
Stay here
I'd give it all I've got
If I had something but
This sick delusion
Just let this end a moment later

So I could carve out your face
With precise details
In the clearest spot
Of this dirty old canvas

Hold on
Wait a little longer
I'm forgetting what you taste like
Something's changed since your last visit

Your image keeps on haunting me
A blank emotionless eidolon that
Temporarily gifts me some peace of mind
It's gone as the morning sun kicks me out of this

Sweat dream
So cold in this hollow real thing

I'll drown in your eyes again
Embracing this idolized illusion
Hiding in between the thoughts I think
I'm finding comfort in this blurry vision

I'll drown in this again
Promising this time
It's gonna be for real

Hurts so much to
See you thrive
As my consciousness dies in this body
Trying to hide
From regrets
Of the childish dreams
That won't ever come to life

I think I need to sleep a while
And I swear that as soon as I close my eyes
I won't ever be back again
Track Name: Within The Brain Drainery
I've gone too far
Now it's time to slow down or stop completely
Come, set me free from my past, from my story
It's been quite a ride though now I'm sure that I belong in here

Disassemble me until the smallest piece defining what I am remains
And keeps me in this state of a peaceful innocent sleep
No emotions to disturb me in this lovely painless paradise
Where time stands still and nothing moves,
Within here I want to meet my true self, my true nature

Come, drain my thoughts, clear my mind and let my essence go away
Crack my bones, rip my skin off and suck my dreams out of my sick head
Pull my nerves until my senses numb

Come, set me free
Free me up from this
Cure me in here within
Within the brain drainery

Disassemble me until the smallest piece defining what I am remains
And keeps me in this state of a peaceful innocent sleep
No emotions to disturb me in this lovely painless paradise
Where time stands still and nothing moves,
Within here I want to meet my true self, my true nature

Come, set me free
Free me up from this
Cure me in here within
Within the brain drainery
