lyrics

I. Inconstant scales

Barren room
Eyes are shut
Stay inside to last

Got no name
Got no face
As anybody else

Locked in time
Black and white
Grieving for my past

Light is dim
I won’t join
This homogenous mass

Deprived of emotion

Constant "learning to live" echoes from the walls
I am caged within the tragedy of perfection
Constant pressure heating up with no remorse
I am caged within the tragedy of perfection

Looking down
Unbanning depths
The fall’s a step away

Nighttime falls
Eternal black
Still eluding day

Stagnating pulse
No belief
Got no need to stay

Mind control
Prescribed ideal
I have lost my way

Deprived of emotion

Constant "learning to live" echoes from the walls
I am caged within the tragedy of perfection
Constant pressure heating up with no remorse
I am caged within the tragedy of perfection

Down and out
I feel the walls crumbling down
My head explodes
I need to get out now

Another senseless day
I cannot carry the weight
Anymore

Inconstant scales of Life,
always vacillating, how rarely
does a facile weight dare
announce itself to the soon vanishing
opposite load.

On the other side, the peaceful
scales of Death.
Space enough on both
of the kindred bowls.
Equal space. And beside it,
unused,
all the weights of Equanimity,
shining, in ordered rows. *


II. In the Still of the Night

I break down on the inside
My light begins to fade
In the autumn of my madness
Where the sky is turning grey

The last time all the colors of the fall
They blind me and they pierce while I crawl
Like your shadow stabbing your own back
Constant scales of nothing’s what I lack

At the end of my escapement
There’s only way out
I’m staring into coldness
My cries in vain are drowned

The last time all the colors of the fall
They blind me and they pierce while I crawl
Like your shadow stabbing your own back
Constant scales of nothing’s what I lack

In the still of the night
I lay all hope aside
I’m the one
Who ceases dreams
