Track Name: Abstinence
It's just a matter of time 'till my mind starts tricking me

It's dark outside and I'm so afraid of my own mind
Pleasant times and dreams are gone
Life slips through my fingers
And time is not passing anymore

The battle against desires is unfair, the forces of addiction will always be stronger
Darkness seems deeper, while brightness fades away

No!

All I want now
Is to finish
With this life
Unbearable pain
Crossing my body
And my mind

Suffer, sorrow
Agony
I don't want these lies
Desolation and despair
Without end

After the storm
A brief moment of clarity
Is there hope in me?
I need to break free from this burden

Is there a way
To get out of
This god damn misery?
I long for an end
A new beggining

What is this?
All this fire
All this chaos
Why does she seems so afraid of me?
Feel my fury
The disgrace, this hell
Surrounding me
Oh my memories

All I want now
Is to finish
With your life
Unberable pain
Crossing your body
And your mind
Track Name: Aberration
Searching for a key
I realize there is no way
And now I stand
Here in this hell without hope!

Numbed by regret, it's my own fault,
Look what I've done!
My hands are trembling,
her body fell and now she's gone

All the pain that I left behind
Is coming after me.
I beg for your forgiveness,
I've become an aberration.

All the pain that I left behind
Is coming after me
I beg for your forgiveness
I've become an aberration

Now I face my test
Now I search for peace

So dark outside,
I'm so afraid to die
Pleasant times and dreams forever gone
The water is dragging me
To the deepest part of the sea
I'm beneath the weight of the oceans

Now I lay to rest
Now I rest in peace
Track Name: Absurd
Inhumanity still persists
Despite of all disasters we've passed through
The anger surrounds the hearts of men
Lost in time!

Time is changing and so is society
Ignorance among us
Blinding the masses, obscuring their minds
Keeping the violence, setting us apart

Hypocrisy and fear
Are these the values of our developed society?

Fear is growing, infecting our kind
Hate among us
Blinding the masses, obscuring their minds
Keeping the violence, setting us apart

We kill in the name of god
We kill in search for power
We die for our ideologies are vain

Lack of empathy blind us from
Reality, preventing us from seeing
The suffering of humanity

Chaos above us, darkening our skies
Violence below us
Blinding the masses, obscuring their minds
Keeping the violence, setting us apart

Divided and disgraced.
Is this how we will find peace after all?

We are fading in eternal war
Hell among us
Blinding the masses, obscuring their minds
Keeping the violence, tearing us apart
Track Name: Absorb
Life is a river
And through its course, we flow
Streaming across the edge of time
And then we fade into the sea
But can we stand the turbulence?
Water rages against us

Absorb the impacts of life

Desing your way
Stand against the watercourse

Absorb the impacts of life

Realize the pain you feel can make you stronger

Find in your weakness, paths for your own strength
Deconstruct your fears, overcome
Heal the scars, face the rough embrace of existence

Find in your weakness, paths for your own strength

Life is like a river that flows eternally
Streaming across the edge of time
We fade into the sea
Overcome the waves you face
Overcome the pain you feel

Find in your weakness, paths for your own strength

Absorb!
Absorb the impacts of life!
