I haven’t played with fire but it feels like I have / I like the burn, is that bad?

Consequence

The mistress, her lips coil in understanding / But her frown lies in discretion beneath the surface / The surface beneath my bare feet, whi…

Fire

Take my hand, let me lead you in to the fire / Let us be swallowed by the burning desire

Poison

You’re slowly killing me once so that I can kill you twice / You’re like poison, coursing through my life

My world

The trees rustle and whisper in the wind, the lake cries / The stars glisten and make love to the sky

Hell in society

The angel throws soil till the graves are closed off, kissed with sin / She shakes hands with the demon and together they grin

REALITY

The magic reveal and the secrets spread? / When did my imagination escape my head?

Seconds

I am a mythical creature with two necks / A Siamese twin with two heads / I’m a wonderer with two minds / A soul with two shadows / A…

Walking dead

I may walk but my heart’s not beating / I may heal, but, I myself am leaking / I may be alive but I’ve always been dead / My gu…

Don’t forget

It’s cold and lonely, lying on the ground / Your feint footsteps being the only sound / I’m rotten, forgotten, my body stiffens…

Not prone to mourn

What grows beneath us will soon explode / No more cat and mouse / I hope it corrupts the road / Where stands our little house

A business deal

Only a deal, a gesture, a handshake / Of which you may regret when you awake / Because this is more than just a signature, a business deal …

So now, the others walk sorrowfully hand in hand / They know they’ve got to make do as there’s no second chances, no promised l…

So small, so tall / It happens so fast, / that you don’t remember what happened last / But I can guess what happened… / All the…
