The Solace System
Razor lights on the path of progress
To gain new insight
Lose control, give in to your senses
To reach brand new heights

When a grandeour of scenes arrives with the night
Revealing the author of fear
The reason why all of my virtues are shut down and hollow

If the light that sinks in is changing all shapes
And magic is brought down to it's knees
Will not be the one
To lose it all over again

We will take you to the mire
We will show you shattered rhymes

Far from the distant shores
Lies another paradise unlighted
Unlock the hidden heart inside
See the wonder of my world
With true transparent eyes

Razor lights on the path of progress
To gain new insight

If you trying to see when all lights are have gone
A silhouette without a face
Imprinting a vision that opens my eyes to creation

It's identity will reflect what I see
Control is the way to prevail
And lift up the shadows that keep me from reaching the bay

Shadows bring the night to life
Anguish harbors depth of fright

Far from the distant shores
Lies another paradise unlighted
Unlock the hidden heart inside
See the wonder of my world
With true transparent eyes

All that is real
You alone welcome the other side

Far from the distant shores
Lies another paradise unlighted
Unlock the hidden heart inside
See the wonder of my world
With true transparence

Deep within forlorn stream
Lies the wonder of my world
In a true transparent dream

I make progress
I walk
The path of self-mastery
Let go of all agony
 
 
Fight Your Demons
Defile and comply

We will have to take control
Sanguinary rules will never abide
We're at the mercy of the ways
If we keep denying our true nature
Face you challenge

We stand and fight until the end
Turn your demons into shadows (into the shadows!)
We shall exhaust all that you fight
Fight your demons now
We've got no other way than to hide (your darkest side)

When our destinies collide
Our intrinsic fires cry out for action
Only emptiness remains
If we can't get rid of our frustration
Judging someone tells you who you are

We stand and fight until the end
Turn your demons into shadows (into the shadows!)
We shall exhaust all that you fight
Fight your demons now
We've got no other way than to hide

So slow
So low
Face your fears

A vision from another life
Will change our world forever

Waiting someone makes you face your challenge

We stand and fight until the end
Turn your demons into shadows (into the shadows!)
We shall exhaust all that you fight
Fight your demons now
We've got no other way than to hide
Our cruel thoughts won't escape, fight until the end
Turn your demons into shadows (into the shadows!)
All judgement, this madness breeds all that you fight
Fight your demons inside
We've got no other way than to hide
Fight your demons now!
 
 
Architect of Light
Somnia cum clamoribus
Linquite corda plena ravoris
Videte pompam horroris
Paries scaenae perditorum

Within the corners of a waking mind
(Awaiting the count)
Distant dreams are not too far behind
It is the architect of light
(That's shown in the night)
A passage through a sleeping mind's myriad dreams

Somnia cum clamoribus
Linquite corda plena ravoris
Videte pompam horroris
Paries scaenae damnatorum

Forever guided by the great design
(In moonrise we drown)
Crystal circles will create a sign
Tangled streams of endless energy
(Unseen enemies)
A mosaic of insanity a million fears

Approximate the minds debate
In the night your eyes are blind
The wicked beasts are well disguised
My inner wounds will never heal
The dark of night has now arrived
Within the corners of my life
Lift up the shadows of the heart
Prepare for what your eyes will see

What we cannot see
We should not believe
What lies beneath the gravity
We all see the architect of light
That pulls you down
What we cannot hear
We no longer fear
Nothing is ever what it seems
We all see the architect of light
That pulls you down

As now devotion will unfold
Take in the fear of truth untold
And now the diamonds are aligned
We'll wear jewels of the night

Approximate the minds debate
In the night your eyes are blind
The wicked beasts are well disguised
My inner wounds will never heal
The dark of night has now arrived
Within the corners of my life
Lift up the shadows of the heart
Prepare for what your eyes will see

What we cannot see
We should not believe
What lies beneath the gravity
We all see the architect of light
That pulls you down
What we cannot hear
We no longer fear
Nothing is ever what it seems
We all see the architect of light

What we cannot see
We should not believe
What lies beneath the gravity
We all see the architect of light
It pulls you down
What we cannot hear
We no longer fear
Nothing is ever what it seems
We all see the architect of light
That pulls you down
 
 
Wheel of Destiny
You will get demonized
All actions have their price
(Choose well and carefully)
We can not tolerate intractability
(As you will see)

Drown
Tonight
But I'd rather hunt you down
We'll strike
Know
Your pride
That I'll never let you go
Stands in your way

We have to bear the weight of truth
We have to deal with our own moral sense
That is how life has to be
Let's spin the wheel of destiny

You cannot prove those facts
We'll cover all out tracks
(Choose well and carefully)
If we can't obviate
That you will tempt your fate
(You'll need to bleed)

None will restrain us here
We'll drive a bargain now
(Choose well your enemy)
And justice will be done, the righteous will prevail
We will proceed

Drown
Tonight
But I'd rather hunt you down
We'll strike
Know
Your pride
That I'll never let you go
Stands in your way

We have to bear the weight of truth
(Have to bear the weight of truth)
We have to deal with our own moral sense
(With our own conscience)
That is how life has to be
(How we need this life to be)
Let's spin the wheel of destiny

As we will bathe in silence, dreaming
You can keep going on
Meanwhile the gravy train keeps rolling
We will not rock the boat

We have to bear the weight of truth
(Have to bear the weight of truth)
We have to deal with our own moral sense
(With our own conscience)
That is how life has to be
(How we need this life to be)
Let's spin the wheel of destiny

We have to seek the source of truth
(Have to mind the source of truth)
We have to face our sphere of influence
(With our own conscience)
That is what life means to be
(How we need the world to be)
Let's change the wheel of destiny
 
 
Immortal Melancholy
Wander, there's no return
Keep moving on as the paradise burns
Leaving your trace in the sand
Harbor my soul for the final descent

Feeling alive, we are free in the silence
We have lived our lives, no hope in your eyes to find

Join me, come join me
Dancing in melancholy
Join me, won't you join me
Enter this chapter, infinitely

Choosing to give in to fate
Standing together as death allocates
Sorrow evaporates
Now our ties are an endless embrace

Join me, come join me
Dancing in melancholy
Join me, won't you join me
Enter this chapter, infinitely

A union in life, breathing silence together
Walking the stairs that have led us this way
Thinking of how to return to the page
Now that our times run out
 
 
Decoded Poetry
Watch as the world turns around
While your blink your eyes
(Time to awaken)
Abandon trivial laws you abide
They hinder fulfillment and purpose of life

Crusading dreams
Fantasy
Reality
Dark clouds will overthrow
A silver line will show
Search for you destination
Judgment fly by
Decoded poetry lives in anthology
Reveals severed visions of agony secretly

Imagine the face of the earth will lift up the veil
No more pretending
The only idols that fill you with hope
Should not be the ones that will vanish in smoke

Crusading dreams
Fantasy
You are the one behind the wheel
Dark clouds will overthrow
A silver line will show
Search for you destination
Judgment fly by
Decoded poetry lives in anthology
Reveals severed visions of agony secretly

An inner war that weighs you down
Take fate into your own hands
And face the fury burning within
This entity is your device
You have to pay for your sins
Summon your mind and you will prevail in the end

Tempus solum esrt quod nos possidemus
Ut ad praeteritum recedarmus non fieri potest
Diem carrere mandatum nostrum est

The present lives in you
Memories created
Venerate dedicate
The time to live life and realize

Extend your mind
Accept defiance
Ipse facis consilia
Chasing ideals bound to be ruined
Persequere imagines optimas

Dark clouds will overthrow
A silver line will show
Search for you destination
Judgment fly by
Decoded poetry lives in anthology
Reveals severed visions of agony secretly

We can be
We can see
Everyone will fight to find their way

I'm here to survive
I'm stronger now and will fight
(Never hide)

I'm drawn by the light
And will never run and hide

Do not you believe in tainted trust
(You're blinded by the light)
The root of hate turns into dust

Animus a quopam iuvatus
Omnia effecit
