lyrics

deep inside my heart
candle of rage is kindled
shady motives circulating ’round my mind
waiting for a chance to sneak in
as I'm trying to get through

seems like every step further
only doubles the burden
every move closer
creates a sharper illusion

scavenging my mind
rediscovered the ire
which ones of these tangled thoughts
were supposed to be mine?
what could quench the desire
of another pathetic liar
or extinguish the fire
that is burning at the bottom of the ocean

living in the shadow world
I'm waiting for my luck to turn
living in the shadow world
some of us will get burned

we can change names and faces
habits, addictions and places
but can we change our nature?
cutting wounds like a razor
fishes in the deep waters
we will never be found
an underwater volcano
someday will burst out like hell

we form societies of our own
in honor of our great escape
in the end we’ll all be alone
someone’s got the future on tape
hiding behind our masks
for a false eternity
completing our useless tasks
That have no real dignity
