Track Name: Vampire Blood
well the sun disappeared
when we woke up this morning we had all grown beards
and the sun wasn't there any more
everyone looked so pale
we'd been searching the seashells for food everyday
now there's no chance to survive
we just waded in waters under pale moon light
while the universe was folding back it's skies
now Weíre left in the reflection of a starless tide

all of the time
all of the time
all of the little tiny piece of time
that's left

are you longing for breath?
are you counting the hours of sleep that you lack?
have you kept the belief in your dreams?
will you die? Will you know?
will you feel the trancendence when you're letting go?
will you hear the distant cries
of the life on the other side?

all of the time, she's screaming
all of the time, she shouts
all just to finally find some peace of mind
she asks:

"are you never, never ever
alone enough to feel me down here?
am I never, never
never ever close enough to touch you hard enough
or deep enough so you can hear yourself screaming?"
Track Name: Eurynome
when you fell
serpents got cut their wings
burned to ashes
and buried with sacred sins
now they crawl all
under the earth and pray
may the wave rise
heaven will show the way

yesterday you were so happy
as happy as you never were before
you thought that all the pieces were finally

I've been lost
who am I lying to?
I've been searching
lost art of missing you

since you were born, you've worn
the sorrow behind your eyes
now you can't hide
the tears that you've locked inside

yesterday you were so happy
the darkness couldn't scare you any more
you thought that all the pieces would finally

when you fell
serpents got cut their wings
burned to ashes
and buried with sacred sins
now they all crawl
under the birds of prey
may the wave rise
heaven will know the way

yesterday you were so happy
the darkness couldn't scare you any more
you thought that all the pieces they would finally, finally
yesterday, you were so happy
as happy as you never were before
you thought that all the pieces, they would finally

Since you're gone
I've been alone a lot
under stones
and up on a mountain top
now what
what am I doing here?
I meant to follow
Track Name: How She Disappeared
I'm not there
everybody's wondering why
searching everywhere
I might have found a better lie to live
no I'm not anywhere
because you wouldn't miss me then
or could you?
yeah life's so very very unfair
you're very right, it ain't hard to understand

between heaven and hell
a place I found to go
when I don't wanna be here
it's how to not exist
it's how to disappear

just step out of the full moon light
don't ever let them see your face
there's recognition at first bite
there's never been a sweeter taste of blood
now she tumbles down the stairs
after everybody came on her
the love that she'd deserve
lies fucked up in the mud somewhere

but she's lost in the dark
the only thing thatís with her is the beat of her heart
shouldn't they know better than to tear it apart?
between heaven and hell
a place I found to go
when I donít wanna be here
it's how to not exist
it's how to disappear
Track Name: Things That Happen
come on, say goodbye to everyone
it's your last day on planet earth
the things that happen while we sleep
don't happen, they don't happen
the things all happen while we sleep

you travelled far enough
reminding scars and dried blood

come on, tell us where your smile has gone
it's one last chance that we deserve
the things that only you perceive
no one ever understands

then she lay down
then she lay down to
then she lay down
then she lay down to die
the drugs don't work, no
the drugs don't work no more
then she lay down
and I lay down, too

you don't need to go
no one said you'd have to
when will you come back home?
when will you come home?

let it rain down
let it rain down soon
set the sails now
let us sail to the moon

they don't need to know
no one's gotta tell them
that we won't come home
or will we?

you travelled far enough
remaining scars.
Track Name: Naga
"hail us!"
out of the window
Naga in the shape of man
screaming "hail us!"
jump off the rooftops
my head's the one of the snake you damned

in ever fading colours

our cadavers
dance on the water
to echoes of a bell that rang
"nail us!"
flood our dead bodies
with rivers from the breaking dam

halos
rape under moonshine
blown-out candles, stories to tell
of headjobs
it's bite or get bitten,
we wander with the wolves of hell

to be one of the others

if you guide us to the carcass
it might free us from the hurt
yet the bruise was cut to mark us
as new children of the earth

if we break our incognition
we're reborn as parasites
to avenge the corpses missing
dirty secrets that you hide

I always wanted to be one of the others
the others had wings and the others had colours
but I should have listened and stayed here imprisoned
with no one to follow and nothing to doubt

I always wanted to be one of the others
the others knew things that I've never discovered
but watch - I'm crawling back home, I'll return no more
wrote you down in a song - you can't hurt me no more
whatever you came for
but to make me suffer
what do you aim for?
what else but to hurt the one
Hurt the ones you love?

now you're only a scar, you won't hurt no more
what a whore you are - I'm gonna tell the whole world
