Chaoskeeper Saint Petersburg, Florida

Everything starts fine, you just write music and all but then there comes the time to share and then - to say something about it, and that's when you get puzzled. Because how do you start?

Track Name: Campfires
it's like travelling from a campfire to a campfire
restlessly
lovers turn into friends and friends go
and memory fades
but there will always be another place, another day
another company to share
all your troubles and victories with
just believe
just live

time after time it's harder to go on
instead of hurting your pain just feels wrong
instead of crying your heart out
you just bleed
but there will always be some songs to sing
some roads to travel
if you survived one day, try seven
if you didn't choke on the first sip
drink the whole cup
just don't give up
Track Name: Monsterize
a single heart is fine
but having burnt it does not recover
a second heart is useful
although it doesn't feel the same
my chest has become a wasteland
infertile battlefield
i'm sorry but hardly anything human
could've survived in the cinder i am now

monsterize me
dehumanize me
it's a miracle to rise from the dead
but only monsters do it more than once

i'm building a temple of trust
a home for something long forgotten
i haven't opened my doors in a thousand years
but i'll try, i promise i'll try
my chest has become a desert
and you're the first to have walked in
and only you can plant a monstrous heart in me
and bring the desert to life

in this empty rusty cage of my chest
create a phoenix, monsterize me
i haven't felt a damn thing in years
i've sung many songs i didn't believe in
i'm the silence and you're the heartbeat
i'm the darkness and you're fire
so come on
light me up
Track Name: Blank Pages
were you the only one keeping me human
were you the only one keeping me from becoming
a hate-powered machine, pitch black queen
were you the last hope?

you wrote the last few words
of another chapter of my sick story
my dear
you were the evolution
that felt like
going over the edge

i will not forget
how you turned your back on me
and pretended that all the previous pages were blank
that we'd never shared a single thought
that we'd never shared a single dream
that we'd never shared the same sky
above our heads
Track Name: Gasoline
take me by the hand, i'm freezing cold
in my black despair i've become so bored
for something new i could trade my soul
tell me something i don't already know

i built my fortress of pieces of broken glass
filled it with a million needles
and locked myself in

all the flowers smell like gasoline
all the fruits taste like ashes and sand
all the colors fade to black and white
all the flowers smell like gas
Track Name: Side Effects
this is a pretty little curing pill
but the side effects are gonna be severe
this hate will certainly help you to hold on
but the side effects are gonna be severe

hate became the only reason why i haven't cracked my skull against the wall
it kept me going on and on, have i overlooked the moment of overflow
it became a part of me, it occupied my heart, not even like a feeling, more like some sick cult
what started with a breeze became a hurricane, what started with a spark became a firestorm

consider yourself informed of the side effects

what am i against the avalanche i started myself?
but for i sowed the wind, somehow i have to handle the whirlwind
Track Name: A Single Voice
is there any point in running from fire
is there any point in closing your eyes
does it make things better when you simplify 'em
or does it make things better when you turn away

does the pain hurt less when you conceal it
do you feel less sick when you say you're not
does it take too much to stand for what you believe in
or does it take too much to stand tall

a single voice may seem quiet
a single cry may pass unnoticed
a single step may not take you far
but that's how a journey of a thousand miles starts
if you are not afraid to try
your quiet song will turn into a battle hymn
if you are not afraid to try
you can make a single step forward and millions will follow

if you feel alone maybe you're just the first
if you feel too weak maybe that's because you've just begun
if you're afraid to fail maybe it's just one last push
just one more step

a single voice may seem quiet
a single cry may pass unnoticed
a single step may not take you far
but that's how a journey of a thousand miles starts
if you are not afraid to try
your quiet song will turn into a battle hymn
if you are not afraid to try
you can make a single step forward
and millions will march with you
Track Name: Neverfall
i will not wait for the sun to shine
i will not wait for the things to change
i will not wait for the sun to shine
i will not wait for the things to change

a kick in the face ain't gonna stop me
troubles ahead ain't gonna stop me
trouble's my middle name
a knife in the back ain't gonna stop me
nothing at all is ever gonna stop me
we will not tire, we will not falter, we will not fail

knock me down and i will not fall
set me on fire and it won't hurt
i'm unstoppable
i am stronger than ever before

knock me down and i will rise
set me on fire and i will burn
i will burn with the hardest flame
brighter than the sun
Track Name: Phryc
they say
your home is where your heart is
they say
being a wanderer is a matter of choice
they say
ain't no other place like sweet home
they say
your home is where your heart is

everywhere i had no place to be, i have been
was i really a freak or just a wanderer
did i not really belong anywhere
or is finding home more about trying to stay

wherever i set my foot
my heart feels the same
wherever i lay my head
my heart feels the same
Track Name: Eleven
if i walked to your home asleep
would you wake me up carefully
would you care to hear me out
would you call me friend

if i walked half the world
for just a smoke and a little chat
would you smile at my sorries
would you tell me it's fine

would it be okay
if i called you from the airport
telling you how much down i'd been
would it be alright
if i told you — yeah we have to go now
like the world's gonna crumble though it's not
but i am

let me take all your sorrows and share mine
mix all our ghosts and all our scars unhealed
let me spend this night talking till my throat's sore
counting stars, never counting the hours spent
rainy mornings will follow and i will stay
breathing easy but ready to get going again
restless is what i am but let me stay still for a while
counting stars, never counting the hours spent

i am followed by clouds that get darker day by day
i am sorry if this baggage is unwanted and odd-sized
if i sleepwalked to your door would you open it and say
don't be sorry, you're home, it's all right
