The Labyrinth of LifeAudio version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZupoXb-okU
I have walked the painted pathways of the labyrinth of life
Seen its coruscating corridors of light
But in cold, abandoned alleyways of misery and strife
I have touched the secret shadows of the night
In the eyes a world once gave me, as an infant, as a child
Boundless wonders fought to fascinate my gaze
Signs and symbols, clues and crossroads, rich and radiant and wild
Thrilled my senses as they led me through the maze
Though the path was mine to follow, what young mind can take control
Of the labyrinth of life before his eyes?
Strange enchantments and illusions stirred the centre of my soul
Every door revealed a glittering surprise
Jewelled palaces, their gardens filled with butterflies and bees
Castles, carnivals and sleepy afternoons
Waves of peppermint and jasmine on the shores of summer seas
Quiet places bathed by melancholy moons
Gilded windows shone and spar

Sleep soundly, my young one, sleep tight
Sleep safe in the sheltering arms of the night
Set the worries of wakening free
See them drift on the swell of a star-painted sea
Feel the mantle of darkness envelop your bed
As a hunger, a dream, fills your head
What yearnings, what wishes are these?
What words did you whisper on trembling knees?
Did you plead with the shimmering sky?
To that infinite emptiness, what did you cry?
Is it knowledge you covet, or wisdom, or truth?
Or a coin, in exchange for a tooth?
A legend has led you to this
A fairytale, sealed with a mother's sweet kiss
Words of wonder, excitement, surprise
Words to paint with bold colours the light in your eyes
And the circle of sleep softly spirals and spins
As the marvel, the magic, begins
A spirit of glittering light
With silver secures what is perfect and white
For the mouth of this innocent child
Flitting FormsFlitting Forms
Standing in the shadows that evening,
Trying to concentrate on the tasks at hand,
The vision from the corner of the eye is fleeting,
We can barely understand.
The objects that flit past us then
Resemble shadows, nothing more,
We turn to look more thoroughly,
But they vanish some time before.
Were they specters of the ones we once knew,
Or merely illusions of sight?
They weave in and out of eyes' reach
And then disappear in the dawning light.
Oft I have seen such shapes
From the corners of my eyes,
But they are gone from sight
Far too soon for me to realize.
Science lacks an explanation
And so it claims they are illusions.
Any attempt to explain or comprehend these things
Only adds to the confusion.
Ghoul NightWe watch quietly in the night
glimpse spirit light
breath of cold air
chilling dark stare
Pale phantom make us her slave
dance on the grave
hear the ghouls howl
out on the prowl
The hungry ones begin to rise
with blood red eyes
laughter of crows
the Devil knows.
The King of MadnessMonsters live
inside your head
they eat you up
until you dread
Fight off your demons
is what they say
if it was that easy
You'd done it that way
You know the issue
goes far deeper by now
and the words that you scribble
will be your last vow
You swore to protect
you swore to save
you swore to be a king
but never a slave
A slave of your mind
that's what you are
and now you regret being that ignorant
when they said: Madness goes far
Above and belowThese are my words so here the well
This is my cry in this flesh cell
In life and death I curse your soul
I speak this curse and pay the toll
You trapped me in this mortal flesh
You burned my wings and spread the ash
Left me for dead in mortal skins
Uncounted lives to pay my sins
Enchained in this world left behind
To give immortals peace of mind
I scream for my peace all alone
No ears to listen but my own
I curse you angles, damn your grace…
How dare you show light has a face!
Your wings will rot and fall to dust
Your swards and trumpets…scattered rust
I was not worthy for your light
Left with the dammed to share their blight
No eye was open for my grief
A second’s mercy…only if…
A demon’s fate? Such lunacy
Hell is like Heaven don’t you see?
You demons ride on wings of night
Like insects drawn to flame in sight?
You vile creatures of the flame
I curse you in this endless game
To fight and loose…to win again
Never to see it’s all in
dark confessionspill it all
such a waste
I may still
crave a taste
will I won't
until I might
if I still
want a bite
truth be told
lies were said
a little became
spread my wings
fly the night
died of fright
FreedomThis slavery is hell, and the gateway is this earth. Your life, your love, your flesh and bone, all sold for little worth.
This deal with the Devil was shown off to bring a feast. But now instead we live in dread, and labor for the beast.
No choice have we, to be inept, we must conform, we must accept.
If not their penalty awaits. To them death is too sweet a fate.
So when it comes unto their eye,they simply will not let us die.
Their help comes not from care,nor woe. They simple want one final show.
You cry and scream,a sickly mess. They tell your loved, its for the best.
They laugh and mock your pain and fear. No more I say, I'll end it here.
So here is your show, from a dying slave.
Sit back masters, and watch the stage.
For once I exit that stage door, you can not hurt me anymore.
These rags you gave me will do fine,to fall closed on our story line.
This sturdy base is quite well kept. I'll lay the blocking step by step
Just walk up now and take my place. In moonlight, so they'll s
Dead Inside Dead Inside
Words or sayings going at a fast pace,
But not hearing what the persons says,
Dragging through the sands of time,
Slowly waiting for your time,
Hollowness settled in your chest,
Where a heart had once been,
Not responding, not reacting,
Just going on like an empty shell,
Not bothering to pick yourself up as you fade away,
Not living, Not even trying,
Gave yourself up with no warning,
And now you’re not even alive,
You’re just dead,

Over the EdgeI walk and walk over ground
Strolling through the endless plain
nothing sounds, nothing heard
except the sorrow of my pain
My feet are cut, bloody, sore
I refuse to stay a moment still
My struggle's end is coming near
The cliff of mine is of my will
I Stand upon the world's edge
Looking out into the dark
Wonder what the light could bring
I spread my arms, reach for the spark
The silence calls me, I obey
I fall forward, step off the cliff
A free fall through my nightmares
The horrors touch me with a kiss
I am waiting for the dawn
I'm floating in liquid night
No breath stirs the air around me
I have given up the fight
The space around I can see
Light cascades in many flashes
The night is gone and with it me
I float and turn to ashes
The KeyAudio version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isyXsXBCt3U
Stolen by a murdered thief
Lost in centuries of grief
Deep within a burning tree
Lies the sacred, secret key
Taken by a crippled hand
To a barren, broken land
Here, in cities paved with pain
Live the shadows of the slain
Locked behind the darkest door
Memories of plague and war
From these torments none are free
Death alone can turn the key
