It puts me against the greatest monument of perfection just so I could attempt to match it
Try, just go-ahead try
To compare with the devilish beauty of the songs that flow from your words
I have no choice but to sway with your rhythm
Even your trips have grace that swell higher than the expectations of man
But hear me when I say I do not love you
I could not love you; it is not light on my heart or sweet on my mind
It is something much heavier and dark
Weighing down on my lungs, holding me to earth
Something deep that dare not reveal its name
For whenever I even imagine my lips forming the frame of your reference
I tear at my soul, rage at my flesh,
Rip away the simple human existence that I bare
I would gash away every last morsel of me if it were to compare to you
You and the monuments you leave behind you as you play through this world
Treading through this existence
Waiting to get back to where you must have come
To tell of tales of those who carved

Aus Nordlands Weiten schwebt alsdann
ein weißer Schatten still heran.
Vom End' der Welt zieht er landauf,
ein bleicher Pfad folgt seinem Lauf.
Die Augen jeder Farbe bar,
der graue Blick gnad'los und klar.
Zwei helle Schwingen rascheln leis',
wohin er kommt, dort treibt das Eis.
Ein Blütenmeer aus Frost gedeiht,
indess' es sacht vom Himmel schneit.
Das schwarze Land wirkt unbelebt,
sodass ein Tuschebild entsteht.
Entwin, der Herr der Winternacht,
zeigt keine Freud' an dieser Pracht.
Nach einem asche-grauen Blick,
lässt er die Welt erstarrt zurück.

Abre los ojos… detén un momento el tiempo
Inhala un poco de aire y retenlo en tus pulmones
Añora aquello que no regresara y que jamás existió
Aquello que recuerdas en tus más profundos sueños
Aquello que se convierten en tus más profundos deseos,
Deseando que el tiempo regrese a una época que jamás volverá
Desgarrando tus ropas, arañando tu piel al sentir la desesperación
De querer volver, sin poder hacerlo.
Grita… Grita con todas tus fuerzas…
Mientras el mundo sigue caminando a tu alrededor
Sin siquiera darte una mirada, sin notar tu presencia,
Sin escuchar tus gritos de desesperación.
Llámale… hazlo con todas tus energías,
Con la fuerza de tu corazón…
Siéntele reaccionar a la lejanía de los mundos,
Percibe como él mismo desea llegar hasta ti sin lograrlo.
¿Puedes sentirlo? ¿Puedes captarlo?
Su olor, su piel, su calidez, su aliento, su mirada…
¿Acaso puedes sentirlo?!!!
¿Acaso no es como antes?!!
Cierra los ojos

I hate you.
I hate you.
I hate you.
I want you to hate me back.
Forget the past
Wish for my death.
Not a single prayer
is to come off your lips
unless it's for my death.
I want a fire to burn in your heart
with a passion too strong to be
I want it to be
But not because
I hate you.
But because I deserve
to be hated.

I'm not fit for the title of saint
For...I thrive with guilt and shame
I feel related to the fallen
I'd...be better off forgotten
Because it's growing on me
This...abomination of self-centered pity
I beg for the removal of my existence
Father...I don't wish to be a disappointment
I can't stand my broken flaws
I'm unlike any other angel of god
A soldier, a warrior- is what I am not
So allow me to let go of my cross
Even though it's all I've really got
But I realize that I will always be a lost cause
Emptiness fills every single thought / Hopelessness is what I have wrought
A clouded path I now walk / Reassurance can not be sought
Sorrow enveloped me
The pain inside just got too heavy
And grief overpowered me completely
I've been feeling so disconnected lately
Haunted by my memories
If only you could see
These wings were too much to carry
Maybe...it was meant to be
I did everything I could have
With...the little courage I had
But I am one who really d

Cries become faint! / Lies become replaced!

Idle No More
Scattered bravery can and will unite!
Come together and let us stand up for our rights!
Let our voices ascend from this condescending lament!
Rise up and fight against the bitter injustice to the very end!
Generations have come and passed
But here has come a time
Where this bloodline may be the last
This is what we call life
Choked by the government's grasp
And abiding by the lies they hurl in a mass
Promises were disguised / Words were lies
We couldn't cross that line / A law where corruption aligns
A home that I can't call mine / A reservation to silence the mourning
A place for the shame they hide / A destruction that is considered fine
An agreement made into a mistake / Our relations were falsely created
Your smiles were feigned / For our own sake
There's countless victims of your crusade / Can't let history repeat this way
Rebuttal the decisions you made / reinvoke the culture you stripped away
Children that don't get to be

And now I finally see-
The true face of faith that I once held so dearly
This sensation is somewhat familiar-
My thick tears become entangled
I clench my trembling fists-
As a regretful prayer exits my tainted lips
Blindly lead down this beaten path!
Reaching the end forces me to despise the past
Hymns of comfort have left me feeling torn!
This flawed cross can't protect me anymore
I always reached for what wasn't even there!
The darkness becomes clear as the light disappears
I kiss the welcoming abyss / Closing the rift I once lived
Clouds drift / Body lifts
Winds wisp / Tears twist
My pain and peace quickly shift / The overpowering memories are swift
You were only a dreaming act!
And you managed to slip through my hands
Let the halos and golden gates be erased!
I shouldn't fall if there's no such thing as grace
It was all just a metaphor to help

It's enveloping my heart
And tainting my soul
I've been corrupted by the dark
A new power to behold
I'm too far gone already
Just give in
Accepting my tragedy
A new path will begin
Transform into what I dreamed of
No longer afraid
The road to peace will be victorious
A triumph so great
I closed my eyes for the last time / I watched it all disappear
I left behind my old life / I've become what I've feared
I know this path is one that very few desire
But what's done is done
Never again will I look into a mirror
For my darkness and I have become one
It's what I've always wanted
So I tried to cast aside my guilt
But I will always be haunted
From the innocent hope I killed
It's blinding my morals
And embracing my greed
I left behind my sorrow
And gained a new kind of belief
I've done it, I've really done it
Dawning this new dusk
I've made it into the darkness
The light was never enough

Dreaming Of Tears
Weakened to the very core
I can't endure this anymore
I'm going to black out
And be transported to a realm
Where my screams don't make a sound
Hate keeps me bound while I leave my fears to drown
I loath the days without rest
I despise the nights of endless stress
Though I can't settle for anything less
Because lower than this is death
It's like living and sleeping within tortuous realities
Even though I'm unconscious- there is no such thing as rest for me
No one knows how powerful my dreams can be
No one knows all of the graphic images I've seen
Dive into the ocean! / Swim through the thorns!
Let your pain open! / Allow your skin to mourn!
The memories start to fill
Then time stands still
A level of this kind of guilt
Is more than enough to kill
I don't know whats worse- my dreams
Or all of the secrets that I keep
It's hard to believe
This is what I call 'sleep'
In these impure waters
I bathe in the pools
Those of a coward

itself should be well-made and suited to
the purpose. Take an epaulette where both
the twill and perfect corners lead you through
a military primer. Red or white
or blue are best, no-nonsense colors: take
no prisoners, never smile, and might makes right.
A button holds the tab, a sash will make
a drape, a softness which belies the mad
and futile march of war which rips the cloth
of skin, the one true cloth that makes us glad,
whose rips, beyond repair, create the loss
that finds no purpose in that epaulette.
What wasted buttons, twill, and yet we let.

starring into a mirror.
She has never seen what she is worth.
Believing that she is fat and ugly,
She starves herself,
not caring what it does to her health.
She just wants to feel perfect.
She is picked on for being so thin,
so now she resorts to making marks,
in her skin.
As she makes the permanent marks,
she feels her sadness bleed out of her.
The feeling she gets makes her want to do it
more and more.
But as the marks multiply
people pick on her more.
She never lets others tell her how important she is.
She never wanted to deal with what she does,
sick and tired of the names and words that hurt her
She decides to end it.
End the pain and torment she knows so well.
To escape those that made her lose hope...
She never believed that everyone is beautiful,
no matter what others say.
What people don't know is...
Words stay in you mind forever.

Simple lies, now grown too big to hide;
Busy hearts, a tight-rope or a thin line;
Busy minds, unclear what's left to find;
Stereo apathy has gotten a hold of me;
"Does the sun yet rise?"
I don't know.
We're holding on to grudges we gave up long ago.
Tick tock, a new defect;
Don't knock, there's no one to direct;
Re-do, the same indecision;
Dulled senses, a religion of incision;
Commonplace anxiety has gotten a hold of me;
"We're all broken"
Mistaking "truth" as a label for bullshit.

Don't want to come together
I refuse to feel weakness
Oppress the confessor
I will defy the defeat
Of my body and mind
And my tears will freeze
So I...will never cry
I was once told
That I have to be strong
But a child can never grow old
When reminded that every action is wrong
I didn't need to know
That strength was everything
I would have given up a long time ago
Because that is my hollowed instinct
Take back every single breath / Take back those moments I lived
I am not some stepping stone / I am not meant to have a torn soul
You can only push so much / I can choose to give up
You're the only one who's the judge / I can define who's the fraud
I once believed
That resolve was protection
But all forms of relief abandoned me
I crumbled upon the footholds of absolution
I never knew
Of exile or despair
Or what has gotten me through
To the point where I need to disappear
My broken bones weep

It seems like every love song comes on;
now that you have come and gone.
It makes me feel lonely and hurt,
like I'm only a grain of dirt,
unimportant and unwanted.
Really, I'm quite disappointed.
I thought we could have lasted longer,
but it seems I couldn't have been wronger.
It thought you loved me; I thought you cared,
but it turns out your love was shared
with other women, well, just one;
the one who dumped you, and claimed to be done.
You took my heart and ripped it to shreds
and now, inside, I am dead.

Faces Of Mine
A smile once so true
It changed direction over time
I knew it was there because of you
But it was just belief based from a lie
Hope cannot be granted
And then stripped away
You have left my core tainted
With these wicked games that you play
May it be a lesson
Or turn it into fact and truth
Love won't be as important
As I use these scars as my proof
These eyes were once so hopeful
It was considered the rise after the fall
But my tears became unfaithful
As pain plunged out of my skull
No passion for the heart / No light for the dark
No love for the liars / No guilt for the defilers
No truth for the corrupted / No solace for the hatred
No burden for the betrayers / No shame for the usurpers
An innocent outlook on life
Once so pure and whole
But now it's twisted to survive
There is no caring anymore
Forced to adapt to cruelty
I injected ice into my veins
I changed my perception of reality
I will be the one nightmare you have made
Human nature is to blame
