Have you ever counted the stars?
All those shiny little dots
Nailed in an almost neverending
And always so majestic blackness

Into the garden of my misery
Sunk into decline
I’ve abandon myself
For all my nightmares like crows to feed

Taste me! Everything I dream is buried under those lusty failures!
Unimagined desires are the hatcher of my new flesh
Questions never answered becoming answers never questioned
Don’t fear me, see, It’s still only me!

Pointless decisions for a safer tomorrow
Comically illusions to hide my sorrow
Ignoring all the patterns in a game I won’t play
Just drinking and wishing a s(h)iny new day

Try me! Find your way to the bottom where lies my forgotten self
Wake me! Or leave me rot till I erase all those things that worth and
See behind me eyes, a world waits to rise, under my skin
I breathe, myself is buried under me!

Caught in this Iless storm!
Lost in means where I can' t hold
Caught in this Iless storm!
Destroying the places that I call home

Absent-minded travels
Deep into my mind
Where it was all that I once knew
Distorted images, twisted view

Trying to change the facts
The new beginning is threatening me
Laughing at those that never change
But always lost in this maze

Search for me! Collect this unreal puzzle that I couldn’t solve and
Trade it, with everything that will make you see what you always wanted to
BE! Misery stuck like swash, and declinefull deeds are
All those fears that I never beat!

Collecting me, searching for me, tasting me
Answer those questions you don’t dare to
Visualize- Ripping this suffocating skin
At last, myself escaping me!

Caught in this Iless storm!
Lost in means where I can’t hold
Caught in this Iless storm!
