Track Name: Strain
Be just and fear not is what you said to me,
But anxiety follows me with every step I take.

Desires on my back – which I cannot fulfil on my own.
No understanding from your side – no nothing.
Effort meant nothing although I tried.
I’ve had enough – how on earth can I please you?
Self-determination lead astray. Give voice to my thoughts.

I’m not saying I pushed myself to extremes,
But I would never neglect a thing that shapes me/creates me.
You say you listen, but you don’t seem to care.

It’s like I speak right through you.

Nothing cuts deeper than fear,
And discussing these things won’t change anything.
Don’t make me go through this again.

Don’t you judge me.
Don’t you level my actions to the ground.

I’ve had enough, your corruption won’t harm my ways,
But despite all of my failures, I know I will see some brighter days.
Track Name: Narcis
You spend life without a purpose,
Preaching the same old morbid lies.
I won’t follow your delusions,
I won’t let my conscience sink away.

Descend from your throne and query your deeds.
Is this a life worth living?
You’re chilled to the bone, possessed by your needs.
It’s time to turn this around.

Pure selfishness is in your nature,
You reckon your view on life as superior.
If only you’d see that this could be different,
Then you wouldn’t be afraid to face yourself in the mirror.

You always took your life for granted,
It’s sad to see that you won’t chance your ways.
Pure joy can’t be found in something physical;
Just think it through, you’re caught in your own maze.

Your truth is a fucking lie.

I tried to put myself in your shoes,
So I would finally understand,
Who you are and what you have to lose.
Just get a grip, your future is in your own hands.

You spend life without a purpose,
Preaching the same old morbid lies.
I won’t follow your delusions,
I won’t let my conscience sink away.
Track Name: Second Wind
Trial and error, I believe I've learned some tricks of the trade,
Trying to cope with this situation.
I've trusted you more than I've trusted myself,
Is this how you return the favor?

Not a day goes by without thinking about you and wondering how you could ever be so cruel.
This is my goodbye, I catch my breath and leave all this behind,
Please let this be my second wind!

Day by day, I cannot find satisfaction in things, always trying,
But you cannot fly with crippled wings.
Just stop torturing me, I have nothing left to say to you.

Will I ever know 'trust' again?
Will we ever make it through?

Trying to cope with this,
It's true: ignorance is bliss.

Lately it seems, that I managed to get through,
And I can finally feel the prescence of change.
I never thought that I would disclose my heartache,
But you never gave me what I deserved.

Not a day goes by without thinking about you and wondering how you could ever be so cruel.
This is my goodbye, I catch my breath and leave all this behind,
Please let this be my second wind!

You will never know how much pain one person can endure.
Nor will you ever find satisfaction in life.
And I know these things to be true: never happy, always searching,
'cause at the end of the day, I am just like you.

I swear I will find, why it is that I'm alive.
And a love without lust is what I'll strife for.
Track Name: Credulity
Making those who love you think that you're freehearted,
Acts of selfishness, conscious that wanders.
When was the last time you didn't fake a thing?
Just remove the mask that withholds you to be 'you'.

Wear a mask of pride while drowing in your own shame.
(Call it hypocrisy, don't you lie to our faces.)
Wrap yourself with lies, this way you'll never take the blame.
(You're not fooling anyone, you will sink without traces.)

All you ever say is premeditated,
I know you'd exalt everything you've always hated.
Most don't notice your self-righteous nature,
But I see right through it all, you're god's most beloved failure.

When the curtains fall and you're done pretending,
Think about a sad and tragic ending,
Of the man whose life was just a lie,
While the world turned a blind eye.

Justify the reasons for your actions,
Explain just why you always run your mouth.
'cause all the words you say and think are twisted.
That's why you'll always live in endless doubt.

Wear a mask of pride while drowing in your own shame.
(Call it hypocrisy, don't you lie to our faces.)
Wrap yourself with lies, this way you'll never take the blame.
(You're not fooling anyone, you will sink without traces.)

The more that we estrange, the more I start to see,
where it is you're stuck, and where that you could be.
If I could change your mind, I'd teach you how to live,
A real and honest life, where you get what you give.

We both made our mistakes, this I can't deny.
But this just isn't you, give up your beautiful lie.
