Got a bad feeling, I’m trapped, I’ve got no air Paralyzed, I’m bleeding Floating over your head Ground is torn open Swallowing my flesh No color in your eyes We never should’ve died If we live a little death will Our hearts beat again Burying our sins with Our skins graced in sweat Guilty for I’m kissing Fancying our mess Lover in my bed Our roses will be red Our roses will be red Our roses will be red Sour colors in our chest Ghosts in closets of your bad dreams, They treat like I am one of them I’m a black river flowing in the bed Of your erotic night I’m drifting and looming Wishing we were never dead Praising our lost star for it rise, To lift you in my hands I am piercing your skin, to let me in Battling our sexes Our ghosts are playing kill Matching through the bruises That brought us to this end The devil on your fingers Our moans of regret No color in your eyes You never should’ve lied Funeral of our desire Blessed our love tonight We silently admired And carried on our fight Reaching for the daylight Abandoning our life We never should’ve bothered Our coffin is a liar Our coffin is a liar Our coffin is a liar Bitter prison in our chest

Drop 03:47
All these secrets you keep And these moments you miss Like a kiss with no love What’s the sense in it all I can’t worry for this Knowing you don’t exist Fucking fantasies ‘til I come for you Follow me and you’ll see How this emptiness feels When the distance is clear And the love you can’t hear Is calling All the words you can’t say And your promise in vain Like a kiss with no love What’s the sense in it all Let me bury your name Erase memories when Like a meaningless bliss You came to me

You broke my shield And kissed my flesh and blood You shattered all the bones Engraved my stone heart You’re all I need Nothing compares to following A path to parts of you You found a road and I found you My beloved hunter You guided me when I was lost You’re here for now but will you ever stay At all I had no town I had no house but yours You built it in the dust You found a rose where I found you My core is a broken land No shelter from the cold You’re here for now and you shouldn’t leave *** If I could take you home Would you just follow me And would we take it slow Would you think twice or know What’s enticing me And would your doubts just go And if you say You care to stay I’ll build you a throne No need to fear For you my dear My princess is gold And if you say You’re home I’ll build you a throne No need to fear And fold My princess is gold I never knew how to run but we could walk it slowly Finding our own pace

Slowdisco 04:52
I don’t know why I cannot stand And I cannot stay with you here by myself And what is this for I try and bond I still feel as if I’m here but I’m gone Rock me slowly Spend me quick Tonight I feel I want to die on your hips Push me now Turn me on I’m still weak… You say you love me so But your body’s telling me to go And your touch is carrying me so low Your heart is dying out I know But make it slow I’m not ready just to watch you go I still need you in my nights so don’t Close your eyes on me before dawn I don’t know how What can I do? What’s this game for To win or loose? My legs won’t hold up And I cannot stand, Porcelain bonds Still in your hands Drop me slowly Don’t move too quick Tonight I feel I want to die on your lips Push me now Don’t turn me on I’m still weak…

Hold on to me tight Cause you’re no longer with us Say my name So in the depth A sound remains If I could hold your hand Soften all the pain I would, but in your cage All I can reach Are thorns and spades For I am silent scream A light that can’t be seen A rusty armour made of roses I came here for nothing I wonder as your troubles blur my truth If you’ll let go Can’t you see me falling slowly? With your heavy heart You’re broken you can’t heal Sight darkens, cannot see, my chest trembling, light it crashes here on me I’m trapped I cannot flee, my mind is a spitting tide For I am silent scream A light that can’t be seen A rusty armour made of roses I am fading with Your gentle loneliness Your heart is shaking me to pieces I came here for nothing I came here for nothing But you
