Track Name: Lumifactory
Whispers heard inside the storm
Talking about me, still they deplore me
When darkness sleeps inside my head
It hides something it feeds again

A sick sun eats everything
I need the dullness, I need not remind it
Sorrow machine is back in motion
Tell me I'm wrong, tell that I’ve failed

Here is where your dreams can be everything
Here is where your sins can be everything

All the nothing flakes are in the wrong place
Mistakes are made and the words collided
Please cure me now again
I need this purifying wave

My empty hands are what I have
A cherry dawn, a blinding light
Into the dark corner of my mind
Just enough to say goodbye

Here is where your dreams can be everything
Here is where your sins can be everything
Here is where your dreams can be everything
Here is where your sins can be everything

Tell me what you want again
Tell me what you need again
Tell me what tell me when
Thorns still twist back inside

Let it snow
Let it snow
Rust will arrive at the end
Let it snow
Let it snow
End will arrive in the end
Track Name: Eyelids
She was the doll in the dull house
She was the door closing in my breaths
Everything I want
Is everything I was, again
I feel your tongue sliding in my veins
Trying to feed inside the flames
Everything I want
Is everything I was, again
Even if your life is a coded pulse
Even your taste is fake at all
Everything I want,
Is everything I was
Is everything I was

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

I try to hide this gloom
at the back of my eyelids,
handful of shining bones,
Nothing less, nothing more

She was alone, just my smiling thing
She was alone, just a deaf knick-knack
Everything I want
Is everything I had, again
Tune in your senses to my filthy wishes
God with a grudge of a stolen thirst
Everything I want
Is everything I was
Is everything I was

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

I try to hide this gloom
at the back of my eyelids,
handful of shining bones,
Nothing less, nothing more
I try to hide this gloom
at the back of my eyelids,
handful of shining bones,
Nothing less, nothing more

Wake up

I try to hide this gloom
at the back of my eyelids,
handful of shining bones,
Nothing less, nothing more
I try to hide this gloom
at the back of my eyelids,
handful of shining bones,
Nothing less
Nothing
Track Name: Defiled
I think
Caught in your thoughts
confused minds and stubborn hopes
Full of voices and full of faces
waiting for a blanket of snow

So far from the sun
Everything is made just to be broken
So far from the sun
Everything is made just to be changed

I listen
I've changed to survive
only swapping time for life
Full of guilt and full of grace
waiting for the awakening
spores of life are mocking me
The war begins, it's all i get
I've still something to regret,
nothing left to corrode
nothing left to defile
Every deepest night i fall in you
Every deepest night i drown
nothing left to defile
nothing left for you

So far from the sun
Everything is made just to be broken
So far from the sun
Everything is made just to be changed

So far from the sun
Everything will be unchained
So far from the sun
Everything will be deleted

All that you had of yourself
All that you were in your head
All that you’ve forgotten to be
will lie bleeding in this space

So far from the sun everything is made just to be broken

So far from the sun
Everything is made just to be broken
So far from the sun
Everything is made just to be changed

So far from the sun
Everything will be unchained
So far from the sun
Everything will be deleted

All that you had of yourself
All that you were in your head
All that you’ve forgotten to be
will lie bleeding in this space

Will become a new race
Track Name: Interconnection G.O.D.
Give us your regret
Give us your usual sick breath
Give us your fate
Your shining bliss and your warm lie’s nest
You can’t escape from your body’s chain
You can’t
And if you are not yourself
It’s not like a suicide
For someone was an half open door in [a] twilight
from mirror seems to be a murder stain
You can’t escape from this blame

You couldn’t live before us
Interconnection G.O.D.
You cannot live without us
Interconnection G.O.D.

Give us your hands
Give us your electrical lust
Give us your eyes
Blinded by glow of amniotic dawn
You can’t escape from this (static) shade
You can’t
And If you want to be
Someone else for awhile
Why not? Why wait?
King of the land of the "sorrow-end"
You can’t escape from this (plastic) shame
You can’t escape from this shame

You couldn’t live before us
Interconnection G.O.D.
You cannot live without us
Interconnection G.O.D.

Benedici la nostra ipocrisia
Benedici la nostra lussuria ostentata
Benedici le nostre bugie imperfette
Benedici il rancore di cui ci nutriamo
Benedici la nostra rabbia repressa
Benedici la nostra stupidità ottusa
Benedici le nostre unghie sul braccio
Benedici, mentre ti calpestiamo per andare avanti
Come in un guanto di velluto pulsante mosche nell’iperspazio dei sensi
Santificati dall’unicità del tutto
Fuori dalla gabbia
Assolti per quello che siamo
Questa volta davvero perfetti

You couldn’t live before us
Interconnection G.O.D.
You cannot live without us
Interconnection G.O.D.

You couldn’t live before us
Interconnection G.O.D.
You cannot live without us
Interconnection G.O.D.
Track Name: Similar Flow
Glance at the sky
Suddenly come shapes always new
Boundless sheets and vallies
Hide and magnify

Serial blocks
Creeks and slopes
The oldest skin
Alive and free from this tough aesthetics
Which rape it
Save it, Rape it, Save it

Try and see
This time you'll need,
this road will lead you away from here

Your inner self falling apart
Rebuild the roots and start again
That road is changing you so much
About the time to say goodbye
Track Name: Not Numb Enough
I'm liquifying myself

Rag doll, in your own cage
Breathe, eat, shape, die
Rag doll, just a cog afraid
Breathe, eat, sleep, die

Drops, hung on a barbed wire
Thrown in your personal void
Drops, hung on a barbed wire
[they said] Keep you safe from the grief

Another dose of insensitivity
Another dose of invisibility
Erase myself and feed my coma
Another pill and another soma

Rag Doll, another little shade
Breathe, eat, ache, die
Rag Doll, not numb enough to be blind
Breathe, eat, bleed, die

Drops, hung on a barbed wire
Thrown in your personal void
Drops, hung on a barbed wire
[they said] Keep you safe from the grief

Another dose of insensitivity
Another dose of invisibility
Erase myself and feed my coma
Another pill and another soma

Are liquifying myself
I'm liquifying
Track Name: Something Sick
I’ve something wrong, you know
I’ve something growing slow
I’ve something i need, you know
Thorns are still bleedin inside me
I’m something wrong, I know
I’m something sick, too low
All the pain that i have inside, I know,
Is something unfair you can’t ever fix

Just leave me down
And let me flow
Lay me in darkness again
The colour is me or what I am?
White drips away from black
Just leave me down when I will fall
Drag me in darkness even more

I’ve something wrong, you know
I’ve something like a lack
Closed inside a box of pins
Something waiting for something more
I’m something wrong, I know
I’m something fake
The emptiness I’ve inside, I know
Is something you cannot ever fill

Just leave me down
And let me flow
Lay me in darkness again
The colour is me or what I am?
White drips away from black
Just leave me down when I will fall
Drag me in darkness even more, even more

Something wrong, something wrong
Track Name: Perfect Nothing
I could be so tired and slow
I could be such a liar and so lost
I could be so hurt, feeling so bad, not realize that Iwas mad
It's an empty awakening without memories
I'm waiting

This is my perfect way to be
This is my white and this is my sea
This is my perfect nothing free
This is my stage and this is my key
I don’t want anything more than this
This is my perfect way to bliss

I could be so full of noise or sick
I could be so full of pain so weak
I could be in a perfect world in chains
Perfect walls and perfect veins
It's an empty awakening without memories
I'm waiting

This is my perfect way to be
This is my white and this is my sea
This is my perfect nothing free
This is my stage and this is my key
I don’t want anything more than this
This is my perfect way to bliss

Anaesthetised
This time you cannot close your eyes
This time you cannot run away
This time you cannot hide
This time you cannot close your eyes
Anaesthetised
This time you cannot close your eyes

This is my perfect way to be
This is my white and this is my sea
This is my perfect nothing free
This is my stage and this is my key
I don’t want anything more than this
This is my perfect way to bliss

I don’t want anything more than this
This is my perfect way to bliss
Track Name: Don't Let Them Fall
There was a small bald man
He wants to save the world
He wants to show the way
There was a small smiling man
He wants to heal the blain
Do it in a better way

And this is ok and this is wrong
Just to fix the broken things
This is ok and this is wrong
They don’t need to be free

Don’t let them fall, don’t let them fall
They need a law
They need control
Don’t let them fall, don’t let them fall
The need for blame
They need control

He was a small bald man
In his perfect clothes
With his shining chances
He was a small smiling man
With his perfect words
In his perfect world
There is a small blind man
And we are the monkey toys
We’re the monkey fleas
There is a small crafty man
And we are the monkey toys
We’re the monkey fleas

And this is ok and this is wrong
Just to fix the broken things
This is ok and this is wrong
They don’t need to be free

Don’t let them fall, don’t let them fall
They need a law
They need control
Don’t let them fall, don’t let them fall
The need for blame
They need control
Don’t let them fall, don’t let them fall

They need control
Don't let them fall
Track Name: Thorns
The only thing I know,
Surrounded by shades,
Is my slow breathing fear
Is the only thing I know?
What I’m looking for?
What I need?
Killed by my own thorns
I can’t simply neglect it
What I’m looking for?
What I need?
Come on, come on, whoever you are!

Everything around me, everything is dying
Everything around me, everything is changing yet

All I have of myself
All I have in my head
All I have in my hands
All I have of myself
All I have in my head
All I have in my hands
Lies bleeding in the rain

The only thing I know,
Crumpled on my mind,
Is the black ink of my thoughts?
What I’m looking for?
What I need?
Killed by my own thorns
I can’t simply neglect it
What I’m looking for?
What I need?
Come on, come on, whoever you are!

Everything around me, everything is dying
Everything around me, everything is changing yet

All I have of myself
All I have in my head
All I have in my hands
All I have of myself
All I have in my head
All I have in my hands
Lies bleeding in the rain

All I have of myself
All I have in my head
All I have in my hands
All I have of myself
All I have in my head
All I have in my hands
Lies bleeding in the rain

Do you know the meaning of my chains?
Do you know the meaning of my pain?
