lyrics

Here I am unseen, unheard
I just left behind the world
With my memories and fears
Locked in my own stream of time
I can feel things passing by
I can see all but I'm not here

There is nothing more to gain
No more pleasure, no more pain
Only aloofness and ennui
No more colors, no more taste,
Only rest of life to waste
Slowly falling from the acme

I am used to live this way
I'm just spending day by day
Doing little things for no one
Yellow dusk and icy stars
Treacherous weakness, hidden scars
That's the only world I know now

But a part of inner self
Still awaits for something else
And keeps trying to arise
But its an unequal struggle
Direct threat and dirty juggle
Always force it to remise

Then thirst rises up again
Then thirst rises up again
Maelstrom's in the sky
That's engulfs my mind
There's thirst rises up again

When I slake my deadly thirst
All around drowns in the mist
And relief comes for a moment
I can spread my withered wings
I can cope with anything
I'm a god until next morning

And I run delusively free
Canopy of dying trees
Covers me from hostile glares
I have just the rest of night
To forget my constant blight
‘till the sunlight brings despair

Then thirst rises up again
Then thirst rises up again
Maelstrom's in the sky
Dead soul last desire

Is this the occasion
To make the self donation?
The gates are open wide for a slave.

I spurn this path
I have my pride and wrath
Another golden way I pave

I don't cry
See my grin
Here I am
to stay in

"You haven't got a place among the living
You are not welcomed in this world
Your mistakes are not forgiven"
Said me the the angel with flaming sword

You don't care about me
So I will never beg you
I'll just take the place that's mine

Deny me, betray me
I spit upon your favour
I won't remain inside this shrine

There's the world we maintain
I'm a link of that chain

"Son of a bitch, next time try harder
But anyway now we are done
Trees are like horsemen in your garden
Leave with them before the dawn"

Then thirst rises up again
There's thirst rises up again
Maelstrom's in the sky
A prolonged dying
There's thirst rises up again
