Track Name: Track 5
When I fall asleep
Starring blurry films
I can
Forget what’s right
Every time.

And for what it’s worth
Things will come undone
But you
Don’t wake me up
Shut up
As I get numb.

Now hush...

New seas
Of mud
Are flooding
Inside
My brain
I’m drowning
Into dreams I crawl
Once more
Refusing fact.
I’m not here
I’m somewhere else
I’m not here
I’m somewhere else
I’m not here
I’m somewhere else
I’m not here
I’m somewhere else.
Track Name: Stargazer
Our waves break
As Venus keeps crying
Its fiery asteroids
Set fire to our lies
I’ve seen Saturn dance
In hydrogen tie
Yeah its rings are cold as ice
An infinite tide.

Interstellar space
Like napalm
Flash before my eyes
Interstellar space
Like napalm
Flash before my eyes.

The universe
A nightmare of lights
Black holes filled with the trash
Of our desires
And the astral plane’s a fake
Please tell Bowie that
There’s life on Mars
Somehow.

The stars are aligned
The stars are aligned
The stars are aligned
The stars are aligned
The stars are aligned
A nova explodes and dies.
Track Name: Losing Myself Again
Losing myself again
Burning fast
I’ve buried my
Innocence inside
your shithouse
And watched it sour.
Tears of trash
Are almost dry
I feel no shame
Feasts of ash
Heal anorexy
And purify my scars.

Losing myself again
Killing time
And pretend that
Everything's alright
As I carve feelings
To help remember.
I bleed inside
I almost die
And there’s no rest
It tears inside
But please don’t bother me
'cause I’ll never be like you.

I’ve punished me
For all these years
But now it’s over
I’ve taken the blame
For your mistakes
But now it’s over
That’s why I’m exorcising
My fears
That’s why I’m screaming
Throwing all away.

Scream out loud
Scream out loud
Scream out loud
Scream out loud.
Track Name: As Everything Falls Apart
I've sterilised
everything for fear
of toxic scums
as you went away from me.
I've looked behind
'cause memories are where
I used to hide.
The mind is a shelter.

You've broken vows
'cause you knew they're trash
when every word is
stained with sham.

I've read between the lines
of poems in braille
then scratched my eyeballs out
just to try
and understand despair
is like suicide.
The body is a hindrance.

You've turned a blind eye
to your useless lives
now tell me who's
really wandering in the dark.
As everything falls apart.

You've broken vows
'cause you knew they're trash
when every word is
stained with sham.

I've crucified my youth
with nails of glass
and still I crave to
break the needle
of my compass.
It doesn't matter where
as long as it's not here.

I've turned a blind eye
to my useless life
'cause in the end
we're all wandering in the dark.
As everything falls apart.
