Page One 02:57
Hear my soul call out, call out your name You feel it cut deep and nothing's ever the same Don't try to talk and try to scream, still I can't feel your breath I'm spiraling down without a sound into the valley of death Hollow, scarred and chained, roaming dark streets of fears Never secure and never so true, behind my wall, frail and sheer While waiting for a call, a knot hung on the wall And an empty scream alights the air, I slip and fall, no strength at all Here behind my wall, I crawl as I bleed Concealed inside it all, I fall as I breathe Trapped inside this page, a boy lost in a haze To rid of the worms inside his brain, the rustling sound of a burning page And when the fire burns out, distant faces will leer All frail and alone, but hand in hand, they flicker his soul a touch so dear Here behind my wall, I crawl as I bleed Hear my fragile call, I fall as I plead
I feel I've been brought down to the nether When the hell did we lose our forever You left and marked your scars on my body Made me feel like I was just somebody You hate. You crave. You slaved. You made Don't come to me in dreams and shed a smile Dumbfounded, I'll believe you like a simple child Now the scene's left dark, cold and bloody But in the end, I'll always be somebody You lay. You pray. You raised. You saved Let me out of this vivid nightmare I found myself, but you're gone, I can't believe it You are mine and I am yours You are mine and I am yours You are mine and I am yours You are mine and I am yours
Lock Thyself 04:32
I drowned in a world that I've created Drawn with pencil ink that can't be faded Don't dare the devil without a fight While chained down and gambled like a pair of dice, in this hell they call paradise I wanted to show you the words that I have written But they're all about you and that can't sink in What were you thinking, when my loved ones were sinking? Awake, a storm is pouring in Stop whispering my name so slowly Locked in a cage, my vision impaired Bottle of poison chugged and still no sleep Missing little Jane and Bowie, I calmly weep No power, no courage, to begin the trial It'd be much easier if he were just to die
Enigma 05:53
A lover's gone, a soul is torn A doctor warns, a mother mourns A longing curse that cannot be reversed A burning page, a flaming rage A rusting boy stuck in a cage Page by page, deserting all my fears Ashes of a once lost memory Burning like a cold immortal fire Ashes of my once felt sorrow Rising like a storm in the sky A sure demise, on a sunset, lies An endless trial, an empty smile Forever lost in a homeless isolation A hopeless try, on a corner, cries an empty shadow A battle of worlds and demons in disguise
Here we've arrived onto the final page After all that's been tried, after all this time To see your lovely faces for one more night Heaven knows if it brings me more sorrow or more joy Until we meet again, my dear Tears fall like raindrops from my face Painted with poems and stories never told before And it feels just like a dream Memories of faces come rushing And I don't know where it leads But I know we'll meet someday again my friend For now, the walls are closing in The final page is burning Afraid and alone, my feelings unfold Until we meet again, my dear
