Track Name: Nihil Est
Buy your life or die
in a strife for hollow pride
while real life I denied
you're watching it all through a filter of irony

Now love dies as the hammer hits the caskets final nail
who cares it’s just genetics anyway

Consume
And walk the earth as living dead
Reproduce
No matter how your life is lead

nihil est
So stand in line
nihil est
Fill your empty chest
nihil est
Feed an endless hunger
nihil est
And wait for death

in truth your world falls apart
there's no blood in your heart
as you keep bowing your head
when will you realize your praising the dead?

Now humanity dies in an unintended suicide
When all that is of worth has no place left to hide

Hope
Is a false conclusion
Life
Is a delusion

Buy your life or die
in a strife for hollow pride
as you keep bowing your head
as you keep praising the dead

Now all dies in paradoxical pride
So don’t question living death, just join the ride

Attach
Your every lust
Detach
From every trust

nihil est
So stand in line
nihil est
Fill your empty chest
nihil est
Feed an endless hunger
nihil est
And wait for death
Track Name: State of Nothing
Meeting you has forced me to
See myself in different shades
To see the ugliness of innocence
Innocent no more

I unwillingly leap into a faithless state
I anxiously arise into a new unclean slate

Condemned by your actions
I take the fall
Your past shoots into my future
And the ricochet pierces my heart
I am left nothing at all

Out of nothing I’m created
Apatheia, free from hatred
Yet unclean
Yet unseen
now Projektiled
into a new state of nothing
Emptier than before
Devoid of ideals
Devoid of hoping
Empty, pointless , sore

bleeding my life through the wound
from the thorn in my side
screaming out cries
that are muted by your hollow lies

bleeding my life through the wound
from the thorn in my side
drifting away from what once
was my entire life

Without pride we die
Pointlessly fragile
With a new shade of hope
That nothing is enough
Track Name: Senseless
There I was, in shards
as you embraced me
but the shards cut through your flesh
and I became your agony

as I saw your pain I wanted
wanted it so I could be a martyr
as a regress of reaction, regretted
the pain wasn't there to endure

I dream away
and fall asleep
I hope, in vain?
for a dream where I'm alive

I became celestial to you
just to be defiled from my
face of incoherence I got
I got redefined

You tear a frozen heart
enforce a soulless core
with life just to rip apart
you tear without touch

I dream away
and fall asleep
I hope, in vain?
for a dream where I'm alive

While you tear my limbs I sleep
I sleep and dream of sense
I'm absent while you reap
that is my painless sentence

So I dream away
and fall asleep
I hope, in vain?
for a dream where I'm alive... for I'm not
Track Name: Connect to Disconnect
we're all lotus eaters drowning our selves in pseudo pleasures
as leaches suck us dry
we are as well the leaches feasting on others
to survive

wing clipped and caged by our own accord
we escape into a state of hibernation
denying our pain leaving nothing but feelings
of alienation

we're all strangers
entangled
in a still force, a catatonic storm of violence
drifting further and further away
into a cold growing distance

in our sleeping state we build glass cathedrals
as fragile monuments of our damaged perception
feeding us with dreams and
perfecting the art
of self-deception
self-deception

in between our isolated catacombs
their is a ghost in the machine ripping children from their womb
"tabula rasa" in reverse
a twisted longing for the hearse

so disconnect and disappear
into a cold distance
let your damaged perception lead you to
diluted existence

let you colours fade
into an empty page
alone, desensitized
in apathetic rage

we ascend into a virtual mind
a pseudo active effort to leave the pain behind
an we become hollow
letting our blank screens show only the shallow

we project an empty self
onto virtual reflection
pushing our pains and hopes onto
the other side of the connection

connect to disconnect

tread down punch up
push it all away
don't let the phantom pain
stand in your way

tread down punch up
push it all away
don't let your true self
stand in your way
Track Name: Enigma
Barely standing and ablaze
When did I lose my pace?
Who tore me up and smashed my sight
And lead me into this maze

Is it you that has taken my eyes,
Shredded my heart,
Silenced my voice
And torn me apart?

Is it you my sweet enigma?
You whom I have yearned
Is it you my true enigma?
Who has left my here to burn

Left incomplete
Stained by thoughts
Unable to flee
From bruised thoughts
Is it you?
Burning my mind
Piercing through
You who unwind
me

It is you that took my eyes,
Shred my heart,
Silenced my voice
And tore me apart

My insides, black as coal
A void in me, a bullet hole

One thought left in me
One thought left to see
One thought… you

You

Enigma
Track Name: No I
Loneliness is not an issue
when you can't even find yourself
the guilt of birth will forever haunt you
as you're born again, and again, and again

mirror on the wall
what ever I am you are
help me define myself
help me break the fall

the hard fall, a new birth
I am once again
empty inside, a broken facade
with nothing of loss to gain

this curse shatters fragments of memories
across my mind
the fragments of pain from what once was
an earlier I

as the memories fade away
a moonless night grows into me
as I change into this formless state (I wonder)
is this emptiness my fate

the hard fall, a new birth
I am once again
empty inside, a broken facade
with nothing of loss to gain

one mouth / one heart
no I / in mind
one head / these hands
no I / inside


within the fragments of my memories
you're greater than before
two fold in nature
both blessed and cursed
a holy whore

the further you drift away
the holier your false image
that once were my fall
my change into the once appalled

come you / to me
no I / you see
turn away / from this face
no I / to state
cold eyes / blank face
no I / in this embrace
no more / not me
no I...set me free
Track Name: Fruset Blod
I frusen sorg
är vi ämnade att leva
där fruset blod
koagulerar

Vi bygger ett hem av döda kvistar
Vi bygger en värld av förlorade ögon
Vår skurna blick ser sanningen vissna
Drar hjärtat ur bröstet och bygger om

I fruset hat lämnar vi
vår natur
I kallt förnuft bygger vi
våran mur

Vi bygger en borg av döda stenar
Vi bygger en makt i en sorglös stat
Våra skurna lämmar bleknar
Det gror tomhet ur vårt frusna hat

I fruset hat lämnar vi
vår natur
I kallt förnuft bygger vi
våran mur

I kylan lämnar vi våra ord
Med tidlös makt av fruset blod

så lev
lev tomhet
skär dina ord
med det du vet

Så lämna mig i ett hav
av fruset blod
skapat av fruset hat
som skapelsens ord

så lev
lev tomhet
skär dina ord
med det du vet

I frusen sorg
är vi ämnade att leva
där fruset blod
koagulerar
Track Name: Essence
I wake up sleeping
Screaming silent words
of joyful rage
I feel i creeping
the feeling
of a crystal haze

In this divided entity
I stand and rise at once
Restricted by eternity
I fall into the walls

I am a purpose of the meaningless
A reason without thought
A strife which is truly willingless
in stillness without pause
I take my comfort in pain
without knowledge of nothingness
I am truth's bane
In love with apathy
I am alive

Watch me loose my victory
and walk the empty trail
and laugh at my own victory
as I still prevail

I am nothing
I am all
I am I am I am
Not at all
I rise I fall forever
I am life
Track Name: Late november
Slowly I fade as my mind is drained


The dusk closes in
darkness takes over
and reveals the state I’m in
slowly I fade

Twisted existence
the perspective is turned
into bewildered patterns
slowly I fade

Winter casts its shadow
breaks all connection,
reclaims the endowed
and casts me into oblivion

In the distance I see my reflection
stained glass clouding my Image
I feel the change into perplexion
as my mind is drained

The day darkens
my surroundings fuses in a haze
thrown into silence
as my mind is drained

Over a ground of simplicity
a cryptic net rises
a veil covers the sky
this mask has sealed my eyes

Into winter, the closure if the year
I am steered into this fear
I must endure this eternal evening sky
as November reaches its final night

Slowly I fade as my mind is drained
Track Name: Mute
liquid pushes from behind
boiling the wounds of my mind
reunited with panic,
as a mute scream passes though me
reborn in a hanged state of mind
as revenge for my apathy

a scream from muted lips
resonates through my finger tips
as I am reborn and remain
hanged once again

helpless, amputated
from a voice that doesn't fade
your absent presence, your present absence
panic once again

it deforms me from the inside
crawls in my heart and rips the tissue
this presence always at my side
it stabs at wounds, it pushes through

I am losing ground
thorn by screams without sound
crippled and defiled
struck by a relentless tide

I am paralyzed
struck by silent cries
beaten, mute and lame
panic once again

taken by this voice
a silencing noise
overwhelmed by silent pain
reborn, hanged once again
