Track Name: Isolation
I know of a place
Not far from here
Where the world fades away
And everything is silent

A place of surreal beauty
I often go there
And I isolate myself
From the world

In isolation
Bathed in emptiness
Quiet contemplation
Utter hopelessness
In isolation
So intoxicating
My inspiration
Is ever fading

Solitude, my cunning friend
I have nothing
There is no hope, no despair
Only quiet reflection

The bleak, baleful designs
That I fashion
May someday come to pass
should I have my way

In isolation
Bathed in emptiness
Quiet contemplation
Utter hopelessness
In isolation
So intoxicating
My inspiration
Is ever fading

The weight of the world
Crashes down
It brings me...
It brings me down
I have drifted
So far away
From everything
From everyone
In quiet solitude
I will fade away
I won't look back
I won't look back
Maybe someday
You will understand

Please forgive me
Please forgive me
Track Name: Emotionless
A black banner
The groaning winds
A distant time
A forgotten path

Vast indifference
Dolorous hope
A treacherous mask
The truth hidden

Blackened inside
Void of emptiness
Oh sweet death
How I crave thy kiss
Death would be
Such a relief

(Oh, please take me)

The black birds fly
Above leafless trees
A gray sky
A cloudy landscape

Blackened inside
Void of emptiness
Oh sweet death
How I crave thy kiss
Death would be
Such a relief

(Oh, please take me)

Deep and cold
I can't feel you
I keep pretending
Trying to understand
The end approaches
The ever black
Closer each day
Without care

Blackened inside
Void of emptiness
Oh sweet death
How I crave thy kiss
Death would be
Such a relief

(Oh, please take me)
(Oh, please take me)
Track Name: Suffering
I feel nothing, yet I am suffering
How is it possible to be this way?
Lost in a forest of countless shadows
I can't keep them all at bay

They are always reaching for me
Offering hope and compassion
Their desperate faces ever changing
Betraying the deceit they fashion

I know deep down inside
Their embrace offers only suffering
They will lead me into the darkness
where deliverance lies slumbering

There is no coming back
I will be confined for eternity
To wallow in pain and grief
Forever suffering...

I can sense it deep down inside
Their true nature may be concealed
But they were once just like me
In their eyes the truth is revealed

My mind is slowly breaking down
I can feel them surrounding me
It's getting hard to breathe
It feels like I am suffocating

I know deep down inside
Their embrace offers only suffering
They will lead me into the darkness
where deliverance lies slumbering
There is no coming back
I will be confined for eternity
To wallow in sorrow and grief
Forever suffering...
Track Name: Resignation
Living a life such as mine
Is it living at all?
Pain, sorrow and misery
The only constants I know

In the void of my soul
There is nothing left to give
No emotion to speak of
Isolated from the world

Like a leaf on the wind
Drifting through time…

I can't remember the last time
I shared an honest smile
Or felt the tears roll down my face
I would welcome happiness and sorrow
Just to feel something again
Oh I would love to feel

Deeper I fall into the abyss
Shades of black and gray
Overwhelming emptiness
Hides the light away
You will never again
See the light
Shinning in my eyes

Distant voices echo
Fragments of the past
Fading into nothingness
The hope that will not last
I see it clearly
In their eyes
Oh how they worry

My resignation
To accept my fate
I will resign to live
The life that I create

My judgment
To live within this shell
To live within the confines
of this mortal hell

They have tried to help me
Make no mistake
All I know is that
For me it is too late

So let me live my life
In my own way
I will live out my days
Until I fade away

Selfish indulgence
A much needed escape
An everlasting journey
Take me far away
Oh I will go there
Willingly
I welcome the change

Emotionless
The darkness which confines
Within this dead void
My empty shell resigns
Trapped in a dark and
Cold abyss
The essence of my life

My resignation
To accept my fate
I will resign to live
The life that I create

My judgment
To live within this shell
To live within the confines
Of this mortal hell

They have tried to help me
Make no mistake
All I know is that
For me it is too late

So let me live my life
In my own way
I will live out my days
Until I fade away
Track Name: Soulless
I once felt the sun, warm upon my face
and the gentle caress of the wind
I once breathed in the mountain air
and felt the tall grass upon my skin

I vaguely remember being alive
'neath the clouds and open skies
It feels like a time long since gone
Remembering through someone else's eyes

Now days have grown dark and cold
Those memories buried down deep
Dreadful longing has replaced emotion
putting my hopes and dreams to sleep

The daunting urge to push ever forward
Driven by a need to fill the void
Any resemblance of who I once was
Is completely and utterly destroyed

As time slowly passes, little seems to change
The world around me seems dull and grey
My senses are numb to my surroundings
As my body drifts aimlessly through the days

I'm uncertain of where my path leads
And I care little for what lies behind me
The ones I love have long since gone
Their minds and their souls graciously set free

My fire lies dead upon the cold stone
and I am but a soulless, empty shell
Condemned to wander throughout eternity
Trying to escape the confines of this mortal hell
