Scar Of The Sun – In Flood

Among Waters And Giants

Predation

I breathe no hope

The beauty was a foe

Their lethal blow

 

Damnation

I’m fed a rope

There’s nothing left to lose

Nothing to choose

 

And while I face the orders

My back’s against the wall

I’m crushed by lands and waters

Wake me from this coma

 

How long we’ll wait

The flame was lost through these moving walls

For years we bare this torture

The strands won’t give in to the waterfalls

 

Assailant

Obscure the war

Spiritual genocide

Resistance died

 

So violent

Face on the floor

A victory drenched in blood

The world in flood

 

Among waters and giants

My destiny’s to fall…

An Ill-Fated Wonder

A work sublime

Success was so complete

The flock of grime

Became the drover

 

Wrapped in a ray

The masses on retreat

We fade to gray

The story’s over

 

Hope and pray

Long the day

That your lie turns asunder

Pure dismay

Gone astray

From this ill-fated wonder

 

A spreading daze

The black hole knocks my door

Trapped in a maze

I dive in terror

 

Can’t stay afloat

They pull away the shore

I rocked their boat

My biggest error

 

We gaze the destruction

And wait for a dawn

That will never make it

 

We fade to gray

Versus The World

Would I deny this kind of air I breathe?

Would I regret for stepping on this soil?

What makes expression measure cheap?

Your different language can’t deride my toil!

 

I never fed your absurd prejudice

I’m the survivor of your killing spree

You do connive and I insist

Behind denial there’s too much to see

 

And now I have to follow,

Like puppets, make me hollow,

And hope a light will shine on me!

 

Inferiors on the border

I’ll get your mess in order!

I got that light inside of me!

 

You need my face to grow your size

But I can live without you!

You’re just a thing that I despise

You’ll never get me down the drain!

 

Eternal walk-ons judge the men that bleed

The tribe of Rocking! goons are still at large!

Chasing the lightning for a glimpse

A string of pointless issues to discharge

 

And you’ll shut and you’ll hear what I say!

 

Versus the world

 

That light will shine on me

I got that light shining on me

Sand

Dropped at the sea,

had the waters to subdue

I had no choice, I had to stay

 

Seems like a prime,

but decline is what is true

Consecutive ends parading in front of my eyes,

making me feel numb

 

Think why you care

What is to gain?

Such a struggle to endure

The sense of rising’s gone

 

Nothing is fair

Fighting in vain

Only one thing is for sure

At the end we’ll all turn into sand

 

Feed me with lies

I’m rejecting the deceit

Far from my sight the light of the day

Searching the ground

That subsides under my feet

A violent constraint is triggering bursts in my mind,

How could it heal?

The Truth About The Lies

I’ve seen elation die

My world’s defeated and I grieve

An endless downward spiral

 

Your triumph, my demise

You crushed me till I cannot breathe

Another twisted rival

 

Some things will never change

You brought collision to its prime

And now you reap disaster

 

For years just out of range

Now I will do it, ain’t no crime

We’ll reach the target faster

 

This time you’ll be the one to suffer

Decimate yourself to feel

The truth about the lies

 

Profaned in every brutal way

But you can’t touch me now

I love the fear that’s in your eyes

 

One sided endless frown

Your ways were always my debris

I’m fed up to the back teeth

 

And if I’m going down

You will be going down with me

You will be going down with…

 

This time you’ll be the one to suffer

Decimate yourself to feel

The truth about the lies

 

Profaned in every brutal way

But you can’t touch me now

I love the fear that’s in your eyes

 

You thought you were invincible

But now you stand to watch

The horror coming from the skies

 

No mercy for the damn intruder

This will end your flight! You’ll learn

The truth about the lies

Enemies Of Reason

This game has lost its meaning

All rules are broken

There is no room for morals anymore

 

Your ‘golden’ glance is so demeaning

And hollow

I should have known that your nerve ends are dead

 

Numbers are failing

As leeches prevailing

No inhibitions, I feel so devoured

 

Struggle the nation

To avoid strangulation

Throw some discord, spread the news, you’re a coward

 

We lose this brutal war

The sidekicks dropped their guise

And turned to vultures

Evident’s out of season

 

The sharks will crave for more

Descendants of a such demented figure

The enemies of reason

 

Bring on extinction

And get your distinction

Feed your machine with new flesh

I’m so long departed

 

And the game is over…

Walking In My Shoes

Music & lyrics by Martin L. Gore

Taken from the Depeche Mode album “Songs Of Faith And Devotion” released in 1993

The Raid

I’ve seen the hill

Saw the bullets storming

View to a kill

Reason’s final warning

 

And the scapegoat to take all the blame

Ashes blown in my eyes

 

Facing the siege

Onrush concealed

It’s a dolorous turn of events

Nothing’s impulsive, in their conscience

We’re the fallen

 

Lies by the sea

Caught the twins’ submission

Self made debris

Down by demolition

 

In an instance they’re throwing a name

Let perdition arise

 

Facing the siege

Onrush concealed

It’s a dolorous turn of events

Nothing’s impulsive, in their conscience

We’re the fallen

 

Burn every bridge

Never to yield

So relentless, you’ll hear no laments

There’s no escaping, they’ll rage till they see us

crawling

In Flood

Tame me

Come on and tame me

This was always your aim in this world

For this is your sole role in this world

 

Frame me, blame me

Wipe me out, never let me go

Maim me to the final point

That my hate will grow

 

The keys were given to the golden claws

A game of balance

That’s long forgotten

 

A constant battle for the helm control

Updated warfare

The order’s lost

 

A new religion in a paper form

Descending icons

The Wall Street ‘prophets’

 

I know no homeland when the gain’s ensured

Withdrawal syndrome

I want it all

 

Flail me now, more than your daze can do

Tear me down, my will you can’t subdue

I’ll survive and I’ll learn to pretend…

 

Superior substance in a carton box

Prosperous figures

Decline, destruction

 

The non compliant is portrayed as foe

They own the terror

I loot by law

 

‘I’m using matter at a range so close

The winds I planted

Became tornados

 

The way of nature I at ease oppose

Defy the judgment

I’ll never fall’

 

But you will fall…

The Ghost Peril

A seeming conquest

Concealer on the scars

I feel the pressure’s coming ‘round

 

Convey the tremor

They’re praying to the stars

Burned is the shelter to the ground

 

Veil me

Assail and erase

Reign a world divided

 

Tear down the walls

Set me free

From the world in me

 

No regrets, reign a world divided

 

The norm’s demolished

The mystery’s in our eyes

I’ve seen the symbol falling down

 

From caves in distance

Ten thousand miles afar

They pose a peril to my crown

Scar Of The Sun – A Series Of Unfortunate Concurrencies

Disposable

“Go!
Released from your mortal touch of taint!
A flick of a switch,
Dismissal complete!”

 

Breathless corpse!
A tag on my toe to certify my status,
The words were engraved on:
“Subject of the past”!

 

Time
Has failed to heal the pain,
And nothing keeps me sane,
This war’s I was the only hostage!
Still
Your ghost is in my brain,
Your needle’s in my vain,
My sanity’s a distant project!

 

Gone!
And stranded among these faceless clones,
It’s not gonna work!
The fire got no pulse!

 

This crues guise
Is sqashing my face beyond control,
And flays all my skin without mercy
Grinds my essence down!

 

Time
Has failed to heal the pain,
And nothing keeps me sane,
This war’s I was the only hostage!

 

Still
Your ghost is in my brain,
Your needle’s in my vain,
My sanity’s a distant project!

 

And I felt disposable!
I felt defiled…

Swansong Of Senses

Ceased from this fading pleasure

When sober words crushed on the wall

Lights out, I still wonder

What killed the last of senses

Made all the colors go numb

And left me behind it

Facing the truth once again

 

Who’s to blame?
It’s not the light that parted

It’s not the war we started

It’s not the sun that fires blanks

It’s your senses shutting down

It’s your eyes that did shut down

 

Forced to renounce the treasure

Deaf ears worn out my piercing voice

Whatever you are worth

You don’t deserve this bleeding

Your drama this loss of touch

Soul’s in isolation

Face your decay once again

 

Blame the eclipse of the sun

Blame me, the damage is done

 

It’s not the light that parted

It’s not the war we started

It’s not the sun that fires blanks

 

Don’t chase me

Erase me

Break this thrall that

Tore me apart

ODE TO A FAILURE

Defeat in motion

Casualty of your inner war

Surreal uprising

Consequense of this never-ending state of flux

Degeneration

Betting how low you can go

Too much of nothing

Don’t even bother to retreat or hide your tracks

 

How could I breathe

When these windows are sealed!

I can’t rely on your

Foul self again!

Havoc, no control,

Could I ever decipher your thoughts?

I can’t pretend all was

Washed away by rain!

 

Urge your demons (Count me out!)

I see your breakdown’s getting near

(Getting near)

A fall unending

Haunted by your self created fear

 

Urge your demons

Chase your reasons

 

A sick disorder

Killing the light before the glow

And scars grow deeper

Watching you fight the windmills of your fairy tale

Imposed the distance

Another hand you’re dragging down,

Your failed existence

Terminates here, and those unbroken will prevail

8TH OCEAN DRIED

Dry, like you cannot believe

Not wasting time to grieve

I’ll stop obliteration,

I will leave

 

A shiver down my spine

A figure once divine

The strength of desperation

Crushed your shrine

 

This sun is fading

And time was never part of this alliance

This sun is fading

And I was not an object of definace

 

Diver of the vastness of your wateres,

Chained and prayed to set me free

Now the pores released the spite

Drained your ocean off of me

 

Thirst, consume me, show your greed

Your leeches I will feed

Until there’s no more blood

For me to bleed

 

Come wash away the stain

Elation after pain

Thus no more of your traces

Will remain

 

Water’s burning

Winds are turning

I command now

When the sun sets…

GRAVITY

“DEATH IS NOT THE GREATEST LOSS IN LIFE. THE GREATEST LOSS IS WHAT DIES INSIDE US WHILE WE LIVE”

NORMAN COUSIN

Behind your finger hides your great fixation

You can’t escape by attempting levitation

Even if you defeated pain, that solemn feeling,

It’s arrogant to think you’ll win your weight!

 

Stand on the air, but with no wings to fly

Mental deception, you don’t even try

Sky’s not for everyone, limit’s too high

You won’t believe,

You’re not immortal, you’ll die!

 

 “SOMEDAY, AFTER MASTERING THE WINDS, THE WAVES, THE TIDES AND GRAVITY, WE SHALL HARNESS FOR GOD THE ENERGIES OF LOVE, AND THEN, FOR A SECOND TIME IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD, MAN WILL HAVE DISCOVERED FIRE.”

TEILHARD DE CHARDIN

Conceive at last the fact you’re not the hunter

Surrender to the force that drags you under

If you ever upraise the crave, reality will…

…will hold your lovely feet down to the ground!

A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE CONCURRENCIES

Relinquish the vortex

And then the blind stared at the sun

Through the rubble

Wonders see so untrue

 

A later illusion,

The “golden era” has begun

All these years

I’ve been searching for you!

 

Sudden impulse

This blowing smoke deceive the eyes

Once again, adolescence

Filled up the gap with lies

 

And I was there

The counterweight

To even up the score

Painful blow, the beast within

Betray me, start the war

 

In a series of unfortunate concurrencies we lost

Curse the meaning, brush off prosperity

And the boundaries crossed

Your relentless mind motivated was,

Despite what you’ve been sold

Cracks appeared

Frail substance

Let descent unfold!

 

Moral combat

Years of distraction stole the light

Solar tense, obedience

The reason will ignite

 

And I was there

About to go

And blow the past away

Once I thought I knew it all,

But failed to save the day

 

Bound together,

This will never end!

Show’s over

When one of us die…

BURN THE MEMORY

All I express

My essence you’re sure that you know!

Another illusion you have,

Modesty’s the word, but you don’t know it!

 

Present I am,

And nothing belongs to the past!

I don’t know why I should forget,

You got it wrong, so you should forget it!

 

I see you falling…

 

Progress you claim,

I’ve moved on is all that I hear…

Another attempted escape,

Typical try to avoid reality!

 

Pompus I sound,

I meant every word that I said!

You think that I’m wasting my breath,

Patience a virtue and you don’t have it!

 

So you lost the plot

And I had my share in that!

But I’ve crossed the border now!

Crossed the border…

 

Burn, burn, burn,

From the ruins rise,

The disaster is by your side!

Burn, burn, burn,

In oblivion dive,

cause I have to restore my prinde!

A PAUSE IN THE DISASTER

What I see debris you see a mould

 

Jaded by the blow

An instant calibration of my head

All the given’s lost

Treated like a foe

A total cancellation of myself

On your serface frost

 

What I see debris you a see a mould

 

No need to pray

No words to say

Your eyes are blind

I’ll run away

I found the way

My sea, your bay

I think this time

I’ll pull away

 

While you insist in living life

In your bubble

I’m leaving traces of my skin

On the rubble

 

I’m falling

I’m crawling

Appalling

Nothing’s the same

I’m falling

I’m crawling

Appalling

Everything’s changed

 

No need to pray

No words to say

Your eyes are blind

I’ll run away

I found the way

My game, your play

I think this time

I’ll get away

 

I’m sick of the words

That make everything nice

I can’t justify

furthermore any vice

And there’s only one

That can wipe out the shame

Whatever I do

It will stay just the same

DISCIPLE OF THE SUN

Why are you asking me to profane your icon,

Destroy the flesh and the bones of this still?

I can’t remain translusive, hiding in vapor,

Injecting life to a such foul will!

 

So long to this endeavour, I’ve streched my sensors

Discern the one and I keep my track clean

Frantic image but flawless, your contradictions

Won’t mystify me and make you obscene!

 

Failed to discourage my faith,

I still remain the disciple I was ages ago…

 

…until the time that these eyes’ll restate their presence!

…until your poisoned soul’s total convalescence!

…until you get that these days weren’t just a number!

…until the wake from your never ending slumber!

 

I still remain…

 

Failed to discourage my faith,

I still remain the disciple I was ages ago…

 

All through the years

I was searching truth through madness,

Absent, I only saw

Fragments of your aptness,

I’ll be devoted

In happiness and sadness,

Until the rays of your sun

Will enlighten my darkness…

I LOST

Another day with my obscure reflection I’ll survive

An image so grotesque, from dreaming myself I deprive…

 

Spreading the disease,

Through my lungs I blow to please

The necessity to state

That I won’t let you down!

 

Tendencies concealed,

Got no armour nor a shileld,

Still on crutches try to stand,

I can’t afford to frown!

 

Glasses on the wall,

Scattered splinters on my flood

Like a custom made machine

That will inflict the pain

 

Wether is my foe

And my cloud is hanging low

Broken shelter over me

I can’t escape the rain

 

I scream but you don’t hear,

I’m far but always near,

Excuses I had none,

In denial I ran

 

Elusive to your ear,

Confusing words now clear,

The justice isn’t done,

My evil side has won!

 

A burden of my own, my dreadful past I can’t defy!

A nail in my flesh for every time I made you cry!

 

Spreading the disease,

Through my lungs I blow to please

The necessity to state

That I won’t let you down!

 

Tendencies concealed,

Got no armour nor a shileld,

Still on crutches try to stand,

I can’t afford to frown!

 

You thought it’ll disappear,

But clearly so severe,

The stain was never gone,

It just can’t be undone!

 

I whisper in your ear,

The tragedy of fear,

The justice of the gun,

Carved this scar of the sun…

 

A nail in my flesh for every time I made you cry…

 

…and that may sound strange to you

But that’s exactly what I see…

 

…and what I see is what I feel!

…and what I feel is what counts!

…and it’s far beyond you can conceive!

…it’s far beyond you want to believe!

 

Behind every window of my memory!

Oover the every day survival!

In every corner that the eye can catch!

Above everybody else!

Above everybody else…

 

I lost!
