Well you talk to me in circles as you’re hanging from your strings So blinded by the poison of your lies Slide in through the back door They led you by the hand We never seemed to see it in your eyes And all the love you’ve lost, the dreams you cost a thousand lives Won’t even start to slow our fall, not this time And all the blood we spill, our sons who’ve died ten thousand times Won’t see the eyes behind the wall Don’t wanna see the eyes behind the wall Told you from the first time you even tried to crawl That you were born to save us from ourselves White sheets and red crosses Broken skulls and bones They chose you to deliver us from Hell And all the love you’ve lost, the dreams you cost a thousand lives Won’t even start to slow our fall, not this time And all the blood we spill, our sons who’ve died ten thousand times Won’t see the eyes behind the wall Don’t wanna see the eyes behind the wall Please Mr. Nightmare Won’t you take it all away?

Capricorn 04:40
It’s the nature of existence, the circling of time A man within his castle sings the songs within his mind A thousand winking magic stars A thousand tales to tell Commanding them with quickness Sits the wizard in his shell You move these feelings from the mind into the soul You guide the madness from the blind Oh Capricorn The meeting of the madness Machines reflecting love Spiraling in colors down from something held above The memories of children lost Their kings they froze in stone These fools of reconnection try To sit upon their throne You move these feelings from the heart into the soul You guide the madness from the blind Oh Capricorn

Sitting on borrowed time, yes it’s true Man in the highest chair says you’re through Clock on the wall ticks screaming in your mind Devils stand waiting, laughing, you’ve arrived Slipping into the grey, stealing your breath away Hourglass out of sand, Feeling the cold dark hand Black funeral Feeling your body fading from your mind Falling in darkness leaving your life behind Now is the time you answer for your ways Living eternal darkness for all days Slipping into the grey, stealing your breath away Hourglass out of sand, Feeling the cold dark hand Black funeral As your last breath slips into the future Is it true? What they said about the prophecies pretending That they knew Your energy is slowly slipping Hands are gripping round your eyes Who knows where you’ll go when you are ending Ending all your time Black funeral

People don’t need the answers To the questions in their minds Sleeping in the darkness Lays a world of mad design Turning from the truth inside your mind The deaf unto the call Marching to the war drums of the dead The masters of it all Masters of it all Kill the future Masters of it all Waiting in the shadows Is the future of the blind Mother is slowly dying All that holds us shall soon unwind Turning from the truth inside your mind The deaf unto the call Marching to the war drums of the dead The masters of it all Masters of it all Kill the future Masters of it all Kill the future Waiting for the warning As we hide away from what we feel inside Looking for the morning From the end time we know we cannot hide Killing all the dreams we hold inside The masters of it all Holding on the leper’s hand The devil’s plan The masters of it all

Evil men defeated by mankind Satan’s knights shall leave this world behind Wizards of destruction set their plan Escape into the core under this land They travel on - Down into the Earth They travel on - Down into the Earth Building flight machines from cosmic folds Stellar war technology they stole Carving through the ice into the Earth Waffen monsters agonizing birth They travel on - Down into the Earth They travel on - Down into the Earth Down into the darkness their disks of silver glide Carrying the messengers of doom Cast out kings of hatred and Aryan royal Look to find new life within this tomb Silently they fall into the shadows down below Looking for a new home for their kind Working in the darkness, their cities slowly rise Of steel and subterranean design Watching and learning, silently burning Hate and revenge in their minds Resurrection, thought detection Science of devil’s design Waiting, watching Biding the turn of the days Gears of destruction silently turning Rising them up from the grave Blood it is the soil of the madmen down below Blood it is the soil of their birth Burning through their veins as the madness slowly grows Running Down, running down into the Earth Down Into the Earth

Gaze of steel and stride of thunder All that stands comes crashing under He does wander like a spirit lost Burning soul for he shall know no other He walks but nobody sees him He talks but no one hears his cry, oh no He who walks alone Like a shadow moving unseen Last of his kind endless searching He shall meet his end upon this Earth No one left to tell his lonely story He walks but nobody sees him He talks but no one hears his cry, oh no He who walks alone He is alone in a world that he never can feel No one to touch to be real, searching in darkness again All who he sees shall not ever smile into his eyes No reason to live or to die, he is the last of his kind He who walks alone

I fall through space and time Motion I cannot slow Astral projection through worlds that I have not known Facing my true self at last I’m locked in my mind Drowning in visions released in circular time My eyes wide open, for the first time The light is falling through the trees The faces smile at me, colors surround I am the Cosmonaut of Three Three is the number who have chosen this night To step through the doorway embracing portals of sight We cannot know where this strange journey will end Ingesting cybin our bodies slowly transcend My eyes wide open, for the first time The light is falling through the trees The faces smile at me, colors surround I am the Cosmonaut of Three Twisting and turning Night turns to day Facing my true self once again I am the jury Judgment to hang Riding the darkness to the end My eyes wide open, for the first time The light is falling through the trees The faces smile at me, colors surround I am the Cosmonaut of Three Cosmonaut of Three

No one knows what lies within your brain Son of greed, construct of worlds of insane Wires vibrate heartless thoughts that tell you what to do Watching every moment of the game It seems those who pray to you are sightless It seems those who worship you see nothing of your plan Electric Father Watching from the sky Floating in the silence as our freedom slowly dies Electric Father Cold collecting eye Will you still be watching when we’re through? Watching when there’s nothing left to do High above your sleepless shadow turns Synthetic super nova’s fires burn Secret lives of twisted men Who tell you what to do Child of paranoia slowly learns It seems those who pray to you are sightless It seems those who worship you see nothing of your plan Electric Father Watching from the sky Floating in the silence as our freedom slowly dies Electric Father Cold collecting eye Will you still be watching when we’re through? Watching when there’s nothing left to do You watch with super sonic sight Your eyes see everywhere There are no secrets in our lives Cannot escape your stare Collecting, detecting No love within your heart The bastard son of paranoia The watcher in the dark Father Hears my words Spinning and counting Watch everything that I do Father Hears my words Silently listening Waiting to tell about you

Albatross 05:54
We ran Into the sky On silver birds We built to fly And We So very few Left it behind For something new On the world We knew as home The fires burned And water rose Foolish man Made dust of sand Oh Albatross We fell Out of the stars On Martian soil We tilled our hearts Four hundred moons We lived as one Until Earth's men Put out the sun On the world We knew as home The fires burned And water rose Foolish man Made dust of sand Oh Albatross Waiting out the coldest days on Mars...
