This is the pinnacle of all my work. Spent half a year working on this.

2. Here Comes the Trickster Again

Here comes the trickster again
Knowing no purpose in life to find
Never living only for myself
Never leaving the friends behind

They'll come and steal my work
And I'm offered little in return
Done with being some hero thief
'Cause there's something I learned

Here comes the trickster (again)!

Everyone uses everyone in the end
Yet the lonely are the weak
Everyone abuses everyone else
What wisdom is there to seek?

If I knew what was wrong about people
Everyone who did once wrong me
Dark secrets and deep regrets
I would gladly offer therapy

4. Blood From the Finger

I'm on my way home, it's night and I'm cold
Solitude makes me be on my own
There's a star, brighter than the rest
It might be the last star to shine at its best

If I was in fiction and I probably already am
I'd forever be in this age and not this scarfaced man

Rip me open, tear me apart
Take a look inside my heart
Rend my flesh, make me defenseless
That is when I feel best
Believe that I can take this truth and twist
Everything that comes out of this
And a worthy sacrifice is blood from the finger

Cut myself on the rose's thorn
A sanguine pact that has been sworn

You want to know me, then simply look into these eyes
'Cause every other word I spit is just another lie

Rip me open, tear me apart
Take a look inside my heart
Rend my flesh, make me defenseless
That is when I feel best
Believe that I can take this truth and twist
Everything that comes out of this
And a worthy sacrifice is blood from the finger

Dare to challenge me and I won't give in
Losing half-way through is just another damned sin

Rip me open, tear me apart
Take a look inside my heart
Rend my flesh, make me defenseless
That is when I feel best
Believe that I can take this truth and twist
Everything that comes out of this
And a worthy sacrifice is blood from the finger

5. In Spite of Beauty

Everyone has suffered for being the innocent
I realize the trouble that it must have been
I'm sorry - even then I have no regrets
The goodbye - exists so we can forget
But that's life
The choice is my own
I like being alone

No matter how deep we are
It's not enough
The matter of time ticks
Sends them off
Even if I'm pretty, funny or smart
They'll never touch that part of me
I will never need anyone

I'm ignored if I am not being present
Feelings about and on my importance lessens
Matters not - if I am even there
It's right - that no one should care
But that's life
The choice is their own
I like being alone

No matter how deep we are
It's not enough
The matter of time ticks
Sends you off
Even if I'm pretty, funny or smart
You'll never touch that part of me
I will never need anyone

No matter how deep we are
It's not enough
The matter of time ticks
Sends them off
Even if they desire my kiss
They'll never touch my lips
I will never need someone like you

8. Choiceless

In the lone hospital
As he lays to rest,
The darkest night,
Infects his chest
Such questions answered,
He makes a choice,
Doesn't change a thing,
So death will rejoice

You can't avoid the unavoidable
There's no route that is choiceless, choiceless
All roads points to one point.
To the point of death.
And that is choiceless, choiceless

It is said clearly,
Hope flies on death's wings,
His death is certainly,
dancing on thin strings
There's no options
He changes his medicins
He doesn't know yet,
That death often wins.

You can't avoid the unavoidable
There's no route that is choiceless, choiceless
All roads points to one point.
To the point of death.
And that is choiceless, choiceless

No point in giving up,
No point in not giving in,
He couldn't choose the life,
As the death chose him...
Now he rests in the peace,
It was unavoidable
He was choiceless
Left behind in death

You can't avoid the unavoidable
There's no route that is choiceless, choiceless
All roads points to one point.
To the point of death.
And that is choiceless, choiceless
And that is choiceless

9. When Memories Still Remain

I alone can hear my footsteps' loud echo
It's so silent, but I chose this I know
I chose this I know
Yet I can't go
We didn't get a chance to exchange goodbyes
But we contact each other through our eyes
I think of you
Oh yes I guess I do

I wonder if you feel the same
When memories still remain
I can't wait to see you again

I'm gonna miss you
I'm gonna miss your smile
I'd like to hold you close
But it'll have to wait a while
I can't wait to see you
May you forget me never
It shouldn't have taken long
But it feels like forever

I'm wasting my time locked inside a cave
I catch myself constantly trying to save
My sanity
And what's left of me
It's such a waste of time all those days
Poor me but I know only a few ways
To kill the time
It's all mine

I wonder if you feel the same
When memories still remain
I can't wait to see you again

I'm gonna miss you
I'm gonna miss your smile
I'd like to hold you close
But it'll have to wait a while
I can't wait to see you
May you forget me never
It shouldn't have taken long
But it feels like forever

11. As the Sun Sets
Still asleep under a nightmare
Though I have no wish to wake
I am scared but entertained
It's a world that I create
There comes a breaking dawn
But I won't face the day
I've no senses but my thought
Since my senses are kept away

In hopes is where I stand
Fighting for what I want to get
Don't rush - Hold my hand!
Relieve yourself as the sun sets
As the sun sets

Still affected by a nightmare
Now how am I going to sleep
I've discarded all my thought
And let the feelings run deep
I realize I don't need wings
To go wherever I really want
So I sidetrack my plans for now
And attempt at whatever I can't

In hopes is where I stand
Fighting for what I want to get
Don't rush - Hold my hand!
Relieve yourself as the sun sets
As the sun sets

Still afraid of a nightmare
Nature life seems to bloom so
The leaves are waving gently
Before it's killed by the winter snow

In hopes is where I stand
Fighting for what I want to get
Don't rush - Hold my hand!
Relieve yourself as the sun sets
As the sun sets


I am appreciating criticism and comments. Enjoy.

I'm glad to hear it. I've talked to some IRL friends about this and I got the impression that there is way too much material presented at once. So thank you for listening. :)

Very 80s :)

One suggestion I would have is lower the volume on a few of the instrumental tracks. A good example is the violin/viola in the first min or so, it detracts from the song and makes it sound like someone playing to a separate track.

All in all it is very well orchestrated. ;)
