One thousand lies carved to these walls
A riddle called life is soon to be solved
This humankind will never retrace the reason
This room, the space that haunts me
Whispers the cries that make me bleed
The eerie voices of rainy season

Destruction yearns for this place
Its gentle touch sweeps the surface
Afraid of life you pray for extinction
Walk this empty planet and see it through my eyes

Without words I speak
Can you sense the atmosphere?
Drown in empty glance and feel the story
Don't give me the answers
I already know the truth
Forever insane inside six walls

Signs of my collapsing mind
A man's figure in the dark corner
Singing its psychedelic lullaby
The room begins to shatter
The stroking man believes his matter
Incapable of reconstruction
Terrorize the remains
Circled by the laughing faces
Your chance to crush the final wall

Breathe their toxins
Breed your madness
Crown yourself and bring it to a close
Seal your isolation

The solitude maintains my sanity
Awareness of the outworld breaks it down
The colours of my days are so dark
On the wall I paint this nation burning down

And cast my shadow over those flames
This view takes my breath away
The plaque of this earth has cremated
And the world is beautiful again
