lyrics

Confusion is here to stay; a cold sweat blinds my eyes
Darkness devours my mind’s clarity
Scepticism and questions, the answers remain hidden
My steps don’t seem to make sense
They move me away from reality
Like a ghost with no sentence
With no burden to be carried yet
I prowl around this strange stage of suffocating surrealism.

My senses own my body again
The old scars and the memories burn so hard
The afterlife is a proof of this tricky trap
The afterlife is a proof of the oblivion’s lie

Is this the consequence of a loathsome life?
A proof, a punishment, a sentence
Or a chance to rectify my deeds?

My hands are shaking, they cover my eyes
Fear devours my guts
My conscience was never stained with blood
¿So do I really deserve this?

A barren paradise, it seems a point of no return
My life has been taken to be in this place

It’s time to begin the journey; it’s time to face the truth
I must know the origin of this wretched fate of mine
I drift away from all I love, from all I once won
The weight of darkness make so hard to reach the shore
One second feels like one billion years

My senses own my body again
The old scars and the memories burn so hard.
The afterlife is a proof of the oblivion’s lie.

Refuse it, deny it, avoid it
Feed The Fire!
It takes us, betray us, it fakes us
Beat The Liar!
