Track Name: Struggle
Time again, you took me
Into realms you guarded so
And it's true, take the table
You're falling time and time again

Time again, my hollow friend...
Track Name: Madness
Fires of laughter
You take from her legs
Shadows are aging
Science has begun to fade
The structures you made
Find their way to the rivers
Shadows are aging
I trace away all your notions

Tears of Orion
Strong and in vain
Arrows of madness
Fires return to sing to me
Swallow the night
with your fleeting silence
Take me over
The fires are on their way
Track Name: Eyes
A feminine shadow
creeps from above
Fevers degrade you
Curtains of a different color
Your eyes they dictate
the past insecurity
A woman is aging
She'll never find her way

A masculine figure
destroys all reason
With his ancient fires
His arrows they manipulate
His eyes they reek
hiding his desires
Eyes of intentions
Tradition calls his name...
Track Name: In Empty Dreams
Your strange eyes are falling through the floor
In a sea of lies it's hard to find the words
I want to take your hand that I yet not know
And drown in the river of understanding.

I'll take you over here..

So long I've looked at people come and go
Silence has made a fool of me
I walk down to your house of steel
But I never know just what i'll really feel
Track Name: Chasing Shadows
I see you standing away
Severed by the dust
Rivers come to aid you
They take you away

I find solace in you
Chasing the shadows
Science can't take you
Fevers come and go
Track Name: Over You (I Follow the Dead)
A fire inside me
Takes me down
Into your motions
Silence is not for
the weak of heart
So drink the wine
In silence

Over you I follow the dead

The light are forever
In this place
Aging inside
the steel doors
Silence is not for
the weak of heart
So drink the wine
In silence
