Track Name: Kismet
I could use so many words to tell you
That we kept the flame alive and made everything eternal

I chose a path and made it mine
I chose a path and made it mine

Like our idols, we created stories in our images

The inkwell cries for nothing
We wrote the tragedy, we wrote the signs
The inkwell cries for nothing
Because we were too blind to read between the lines

As brief as a sigh
As familiar as a story you've always had in your mind

We shiver every time we remember that everything has an end
We lose time forcing destiny

The inkwell cries for nothing
It will always cry
Track Name: Nilaya
Without knowing when
Without knowing where you stand
How could you be what you need to be
Surrounded by threats
Inflicted by desires
I could place some bets
While your heart is pierced with spires

Raise your head and find a purpose
Amid a mist of grunts and sobs
If your senses are doubtful then know
That the only truth reigns in your sorrow

Velvet and emerald
The fate of abundance stays ephemeral
In hell or in heaven
You will get what you're given

I'm not blaming you
For putting wrong names on what you don't understand

Raise your head and find a purpose
Amid a mist of sweets and words
But in the end, as you'll be nervous
You'll run through those wards

You'll run in a circle
You'll crawl on marble

Let them stroke your hair
Nothing could be easier
Oh if your eyes could only see the best in you
More than pride, cherish your sins
This is what you've decided to do

Here is no innocence
Only a feast of ignorance
Here is no penitence
Only a beast in your presence

And if you're seeking for a foe
He's hiding in your mind
A bastard born in you
An instinct moving down your spine

Let them stroke your hair
Nothing could be easier
Oh if your eyes could only see the best in you
More than pride, cherish your sins
This is what you've decided to do

Now run
Track Name: Cambiares
Refresh yourself under a cascade of bodies and sweat
Let's play through a swamp to watch the moon set

I live when your blood runs like hunted deers
I live when the aftermath dies in your tears

Keep taking me as a saviour
Since violence is your favourite flavour

Lie to others, lie to yourself
Watch me, burning your candle
Lie to others, lie to yourself
Watch me build a truth that you can't handle

The veil is dancing with the wind of substances
My whispers are creating devotees
Eyes of the world can now admire who you really are
A rotten fruit devouring itself like a dying star

Keep spinning around into my web
Let it impede your vows

Lie to others, lie to yourself
Watch me, burning your candle
Lie to others, lie to yourself
Watch me build a truth that you can't handle

The veil is dancing with the wind of substances
My whispers are creating devotees
Eyes of the world can now admire who you really are
A rotten fruit devouring itself like a dying star

I am three, three trees that have grown
In a garden beneath your skin
I am the light in the shadow of the unknown
I am king in the realm of sin [2x]

I am king in the realm of sin [2x]
Track Name: Lamina
We've seen this once before
We broke the olive branch, broke and hoped to make our spirit soar
We dug deep into this trench, dug deep to meet our own grave

Sing me another moral fable and teach me how to walk
Straight in the eye now tell me, now tell me…

What's the point to salt this earth?
Your flaws destroyed your mother
What's the point to take an oath?
Another decoy to play the beggar

Tell me, are you concerned?
Tell me, oh tell me what you learned
Lie to me, once again my brothers

I know, I know that it doesn't make sense to you
I will enlighten our lands and discern what were true

We were gods, we were exiled
When the moist air wrapped us like his child
Now bring us back our smile

Let's see how our limbs hold up down in here
Be fair and let us make one more thing clear

What's the point to salt this earth?
Your flaws destroyed your mother
What's the point to take an oath?
Another decoy to play the beggar

Tell me, are you concerned?
Tell me, oh tell me what you learned
Lie to me, once again my brothers

From one human to humanity
I'll try my best, I'll die without any rest
I'll ravage the hate and restore the decayed
To feel at peace
Track Name: Saddhu
Under the ground where creatures lick my wounds
Before I run down, blurred by some sounds
The Ariane's thread in the palm of my hand
Lead me out of this maze where I can't stand [2x]

No lights, no exit
Sun's warmth is what I covet
Holy spirits, holy corners
Make me juggle from tears to anger

Left or right, I don't know what to fight
Up or down, now I see my own legs drown
My claws have to hang on to the crest
Cause I still feel strength deep inside of my chest
Track Name: Akhil
Tell me why isolation means nothing to me
I don't know how to express
That I appreciate every time air fills my lungs

Look and watch but don't interpret my smile
Because nothing could capture my feelings better

Maybe you're seeing empty hands
Cause your soul is white and mine is full of colours
But they lived to pull my head out of the sand
Maybe one day your sky will be clearer

Learn the difference between used and worn
The world is ancient, where simplicity rhymes with utility

Erase it all with open arms to the world
Through the keyhole you've only seen some dust and stones

I could lay out the unknown in your mind
Erase all the doubt that makes you blind
I'm no more a bird than you're a creep
Could I be heard before you fall asleep?

This is my path, my way to be happier
Don't call me fatalist because I accept death with life

Erase it all with open arms to the world
Through the keyhole you've only seen some dust and stones
Fulfil yourself, don't stay alone
Jaded and dazed
And create your own wealth

May the wind parch my tongue
May water stop feeding me [2x]
