Track Name: Verglas
Is ignorance an answer to unfulfilled desire?

Atop a frozen wasteland
Anticipating an end
You pick apart every color that has faded
Keeping only a single one, to not lose yourself
Inside a box made of glass

Leaving a trail in the ice
Wondering why you can't cry
Offering your innermost thoughts as sacrifice
They are the only thing you were able to hold on to
In sin

Caught in the vacant space that was once filled
With the memory you wanted to forget
Can you find peace in shading your eyes against the pale, white sun?

As you wish upon the overbearing stars
Suddenly, it seems like they used to shine much brighter
There's no other escape from the quaking ground
As the glass begins to shatter
You secretly hope that it would break

Is ignorance an answer to unfulfilled desire?
In sin
Seeking your reflection on the delicate glass floor

Remembering the lie buried in that smiling face
It's a fever glazed nostalgia
Can you find peace in shading your eyes against the pale, white sun?

As you wish upon the overbearing stars
Suddenly, it seems like they used to shine much brighter
There's no other escape from the quaking ground
As the glass begins to shatter

As you wish upon the overbearing stars
Suddenly, it seems like they used to shine much brighter
There's no other escape from the quaking ground
As the glass begins to shatter
The refraction cuts you in half
Secretly, you wanted to break

As you wish upon the overbearing stars

Beyond this "heaven" you looked for
Beyond this "end" that you wished for
Outside the glass box, a crack appears
Track Name: Apophis
I drink these tears to reaffirm my state of being
I drink these tears to break the unbreakable bond
I drink these tears to reaffirm my state of being
I drink these tears to break the unbreakable
Steal me

The snow filling the cracks in the ground
It lets out a long sigh
In this storm of disorder, it is calm
Soon it will all break

Twisting, twisting, the serpent's tears tear the land open
Humanity's dripping with the venom of emotion

Ah, logic is lost within winter's hallucination

Chaos rules over this quiet world
Breathing a sense of false despair in confused lives
Like snow, suspended in the air
As if waiting to become twisted
And fall, gently, onto this scarred land

To break the unbreakable bond

Apophis foresaw hate
From the remains of this false paradise
An absurd happiness can finally grow
So needlessly beautiful
So beautiful

Ah, logic is lost within winter's hallucination

Steal me, heal me
If I beg will you steal my soul?

Not even given a chance to be known
The weakness revealed in the afterglow
Is soaked up by the chime of a distant bell
Rising from beneath the snow

Chaos rules over this quiet world
Breathing a sense of false despair in confused lives
Like snow, suspended in the air
As if waiting for absolution to end all things
And begin again

To understand the world is to discard all logic
Track Name: Fumigation
Straining my crooked body to the point of contraction
It is twitching like a wrinkled paper swan
The shame that lives in these poisonous fumes
The taste of salt
It is the bait that lures me to ruin

Soothingly, I am being pulled under
But can't feel the grinding dirt
Why is it that we attract destruction?
Lovely fumigation

Tension in high saturation
In the luminescence I can imagine bliss
Emptiness of stimulation
Gathering the errors you've scattered

Draining me, draining me of feeling
And as my bones begin to rust
Draining me, draining me of feeling
I lose my ability to touch

Why is it that we can only rebuild?
Why is it that we can only destroy?
Why is it that we can only believe?
Why is it that I can only pretend?

Veins that are fighting to bulge through the wrist
Cynical laughter is a dull blade

Petals that so softly land on my face
I can't feel their subtlety
The magenta clouds my field of vision
Lonely fumigation

All consuming infestation
In the consciousness that created this labyrinth
A magnet for devastation
I can only measure the distance

Draining me, draining me of feeling
Even if this world is no more
Draining me, draining me of feeling
Will you still try and find me?

Draining me, draining me of feeling
And as my bones begin to rust
Draining me, draining me of feeling
I lose my ability to touch

Even if this world is no more
This one touch won't stop my inner war
Track Name: In Melancholia
Can you remember the scent carried by that late summer wind?

Hidden within this sheltered world of your "self"
Knowing that it will someday be taken away
Deciding not to show it to anyone
As the iridescence paints your solitude in melting hues

You winnow through the blades of grass
While feeding on the doubts ingrained in them
This hunger that you try to satiate only reminds you of yourself

Somehow it's still so hard to understand
What differs nightmares from dreams
Trying to scrape off wounds that cannot heal
They've become part of you
Choking on your regret, you start breaking
Into shards of nothingness
For a few cherished moments of solace
You have erased all that you were

"Why is it that we wish harm unto others?"
Does this violated sentience show your worth?
You're only chasing the secret that plagues you
With these images so rapidly swirling inside your head

You winnow through the blades of grass
While feeding on the doubts ingrained in them
When was it that you turned into fiction?
A refuge in being alone

Somehow it's still so hard to understand
What differs nightmares from dreams
Trying to scrape off wounds that cannot heal
They've become part of you
Choking on your regret, you start breaking
Into shards of nothingness
For a few cherished moments of solace

Suddenly cemented in your place
You can't remember where to step
The sunlight filtering through drifting leaves
It shines to show how small you are
It shines to show how small you are

Can you remember the scent carried by that late summer wind?
Do you still feel it?
That same warm downpour, drenching you again
And as the river overflows, you pluck these old and withered thoughts
From the earth that you cannot let go of

Somehow it's still so hard to understand
What differs nightmares from dreams
Trying to scrape off wounds that cannot heal
They've become part of you
Choking on your regret, you start breaking
Into shards of nothingness
For a few cherished moments of solace
You have erased yourself

Somehow it's still so hard to understand
What differs nightmares from dreams
Trying to scrape off wounds that cannot heal
They've become part of you
Choking on your regret, you start breaking
Into shards of nothingness
For a few cherished moments of solace
You have erased all that you were
Track Name: The Willow and the Swamp
Between the shadow and a chime
A paper light is floating
It is gathering all the colorless waterleaves
And the willow, she is crying
Bearing souls in catkin pods
Their cradles are rocking
With the sough of a mourning euphony

Death is creeping in the darkness of the soil
It illuminates the swamp with roving lanterns
Deep in the corner of light
The waves are rooting the weeps of the wilted trees

Riven willow twigs are shivering
As they slowly drown in ebbing tears
Translucent echoes of trauma will have no remedy
Torpid mist, shading the eerie grins under a veil of placidity
Translucent echoes of trauma will meander through the infinity

There are no reflections in the swamp
It only feasts on eyelids
What was stolen has been sunk in the somnolence
The blossoms are frolicking
On the bottomless chasm’s wall
Only the subsidence can wash them back to memories

Death is glowing in the darkness of the soil
It illuminates the swamp with roving lanterns
Deep in the corner of light
The waves are flowing in a soothing coil

But the hisses are alluring the vigilance
And it’s covering all thoughts that want to fall asleep
Deep in the corner of light
A livid color is keeping a stagnant watch

Ancient forms are reminiscing
Flickering in sight, gleaning thoughts
The sorrow will indulge in harmony
Unfolding
Unfolding from the distant vales
The swamp is stolid
Swallowing eyelids

Surrounded by the gleam of the lucent melancholy
The roots are spreading on the land like throbbing webs
New secrets are molding in shyness, they breathe life in
Shuddering

The hisses are drying to a silence
And the spirits in the soil are almost limpid
Deep in the heart of the chime, a faded color is vibrating

Riven willow twigs are shivering
As they slowly drown in ebbing tears
Translucent echoes of trauma will have no remedy
Torpid mist, shading the eerie grins under a veil of placidity
Translucent echoes of trauma will meander through the infinity
