Track Name: Prodrome
tell me how far you want to leave me
facing alone this tragedy
the journey toward death is frantic
enslaved by a furious anxiety

tell me how far you want to leave me
facing this illness so mighty
I taste her beauty everyday but I think
this in the end will make me sick

I'm inspired by unknown feelings
I'm invited by the worst one
I'm excited by my cruelty
scared at the same time by the end

tell me how far you want to leave me
facing alone this tragedy
the journey toward death is frantic
I'd like to have their company

you think dying is the worst thing?
in bed no sleep convulsed
no name for this I know
I need their cries
I'm cursed
Track Name: Antropophobic
there's a nightmare called humanity
I'll remain behind the door
world outside and no one comes in
paralized down on the floor
I can't control it anyway
I think it's a desease
I only know that I'm afraid and
there's no way to get rid of it

I'd like to make them disappear
I fill dirty hands on me
paranoia creeps laughing
tell me why I can't be free

guess I'm not here for their judgement
thousands mouths are spitting on me
I see clearly where I'm falling

nightmare called humanity
Track Name: 300.12
here closed give me a chance
one chance to show my rage again
in this crowded room
I have nothing but my violence

keep little children safe
keep weapons in my bloody hands
he sleeps while I'm outside
safe I'm the guardian of his brain

no I don't deserve
your insults

untie my whirsts
I need to run
Track Name: Mens Rea
nothing but guilt inside me she used to bend me black dirty guilt
later that night I saw them I saw them crying they were dying
nothing but cold and darkness I slowly acted like an hungry wolf
later that night I came back to watch them dying in the red snow
nothing but a nice weakness before I get stronger and do it again
later that night exausthed I've enjoyed the breeze of their last breath

only oppressive sadness
liquid monster
running burning my skin
close to madness

silence and a portrait
on the floor
shattered as their poor clothes
as my love

fallin' down she said me
not my son
I'm sorry there's no mercy
no remorse for what I've done

then I dragged their bodies
out of the door
while an high gloomy moon weeped
she's weeping
Track Name: Folie À Deux
don't scream or we'll hurt you twice
understand it's our vice
not enough
we need to share
don't judge us 'cause is not fair
Track Name: Iatrogenesis
I've tried to speak
no one has heard
I've tried to speak
I've tried to talk about my love
how I was weak

I've tried to keep my rage inside
denying my fault
I've tried to call someone has come
please try to cure

cure this bleeding wound
do I have to pay
to live this life?

cure this poor man instead of praying
he's sinkin'
Track Name: Hybristophilia
this time I think she can't find us
are you afraid?
this time her blood red eyes are closed
won't you escape? don't be late
Track Name: Stigma
unknown subject
mocked and tortured
I'm wrong
denied raped mind confused
no never danger
if I'm with you
unknown process
brain collapses

I'm going to change my desire
I'm going to forget you
nothing to share with their minds
nothing to

lay down on an infinite field
eyes to the sky
hoping again to fly

I'm going to smash your desire
I'm going to deny you
nothing to share with your mind
to lose
Track Name: Melanie
and I dreamt to fly softly no chains
free to kiss the night healing my pain
cold hands touched me freezing my skin
and I dreamt to smile biting her lips

and I dreamt to hide fury slowly
then I watched her hair
standing breathless
once I've buried even her name
there was no place to hide her memories

then I dreamt to smile
Track Name: Wahnsinn
am I standing in this corner?
i was there
can they catch me when I'll fall there?
can I come back?

am I still the same as before?
I think I am

will they punish me if I go
can I go?

he's still standing in his corner
we think he's scared
he is sweating trembling watch him
now he seems to be dead

I'm too far from my sweet corner
nowhere to stand
I don't like their sight where am I?
why on this bed?

female voices through the white rooms
down the stairs
bringing ropes
they come to bind me
why on this bed?

patient calm now
feeble heartbeat
you bind him well

well done nurses
he's stopped trembling
we think he's
Track Name: Amygdala
In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said: "Is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter-bitter," he answered;
"But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart.”

— Stephen Crane
