The Facade

When I put on the mask, what do you see?
Is the person behind the facade still me?
Is the disguise something you can even believe?
My identity, what does it even mean?

When I change my clothes what do I become?
The person under the robes, are they just for fun?
Is the costume something that can fool everyone?
My identity, when is it undone?

When I put on the mask, what do you see?
Is it the face that makes me?
When I change my clothes what do I become?
Can I blend in, or be no one?
Can my disguise ever truly deceive?
Escaping my identity, does it set me free?

SCREAM

CAN’T YOU SEE THAT I’M BREAKING!
I CRUMBLE AND FADE AWAY!
EVEN IF I PRAYED TODAY!
I WOULD JUST DISAPPEAR!
ERASED FROM MEMORIES!
LIKE A BAD DAY!
I’M JUST FORGOTTEN!

CAN’T YOU HEAR THAT I’M SHAKING!
I SHIVER AND BREAK AWAY!
EVEN IF I SCREAMED YOUR NAME!
I WOULD JUST BE SILENT!
MUTE TO YOUR EARS!
SILENT FROM THE START!
LIKE AN ANNOYING FLY!
I’M JUST NOT WORTH HEARING!

CAN’T YOU JUST NOTICE ME!
I’M NOT SO HARD TO SEE!
EVEN IF I STOOD BEFORE YOU!
I WOULD JUST SEEM TIMID!
INVISIBLE TO YOUR MIND!
MISSING FROM THE ORIGIN!
LIKE I’M DEAD TO YOU!
I’M JUST NOT BEING!

Can’t you just accept me?
I’m struggling to be worth something.
Even if I tried my best.
I would just look like a failure.
Inadequate for your soul.
Incomplete from the begin.
I’m not enough for you.
I’m just not good…

The Departed

Problem stays and problem goes
Problem moves and problem flows
Problem me and problem you
The problem is real and the problem is true.

Broken here and broken there
Broken blind and broken stare
Broken me and broken you
Heartbreakingly real, heartbreakingly true.

Empty out and empty in
Empty stop and empty begin
Empty me and empty you.
The emptiness is real and the emptiness is true.

Losing sight and losing mind
Losing soul and losing time.
Losing me and losing you.
Losing the real and losing the true.
Losing everything, over and through.

Sorrow in

Sorrow in word.
Sorrow in writing.
Sorrow in reading,
All of the tears I am fighting.

Sorrow in mute.
Sorrow in sound.
Sorrow in speaking,
All of the misery I’ve found.

Sorrow in love.
Sorrow in hate.
Sorrow in feeling,
That this is all fate.

Sorrow in happiness.
Sorrow in all.
Sorrow in the moment,
Before the splashing fall.

Sorrow in the vivid.
Sorrow in the bleak.
Sorrow in the place of,
The happiness I seek.

Sorrow in the river.
Sorrow in the depth.
The cold water taking,
The sorrow in last breath.

Love for Alkaid

Crimson waves to catch my stare.
Eyes burning bright with passion.
Content to just breathe your air.
I want to scream “I like you!”, but my soul is too shy to say. I’m too quiet to confess my love for Alkaid.

Brighter than the brightest stars.
Content to just be in your light.
I could only ever be with you from afar.
I want to scream “I want you!”, but my soul fights to say. I’m too weak to confess my love for Alkaid.

Beauty in human form.
Spark my feelings and ignited my heart.
To be by your side, is my destiny sworn.
I want to scream “I need you!”, but my soul fails to say. I’m not good enough to confess my love for Alkaid.

The sweet call of your voice.
Lure me in like Soren’s song.
To follow, I have no choice.
I want to scream “I love you!”, but my soul cries instead. I’m realizing now, Alkaid is dead.

Crimson waves of passions flare.
Burning bright in darkened air.
Beauty not forgotten.
An eternity born.
Sing from the heavens
Give all your grace.
Hear me now.
I love Alkaid.

Frozen: Immaculate Burial

Shadows over the frozen wilds of my heart. Vast expanse of taintless hills bound in ice. Freezing memories of misery, trapped forever more in their glacial prison. Dead hands numb in cold, numb in expression, numb in all. Null to all. No warmth, no life in endless snowfall. All to null.

Burdened by blankets of untouched frost white, alone, no others in sight. Forgotten in the storms of harshest winter, embracing solitude in the the eternal wintry abyss. Void to all. Chilling stories never told, never spilling the contents of heart. All to void.

Bathed in arctic wrath, crying hopelessly into the skies.
Begging for light and a way to break Forever’s Night. Abandoned all.
Bleak grounds encase, desolate heavens ensnare. All abandoned.
Grim life put forth to death’s stare. Weighed and evaluated fair.
End to persistent despair.
Immaculate Burial.

Give into Dream

Lying silently in a pool of falsities,
I cast my soul away.
The world holds nothing for me now.
I forsake the day, and give into dream.

The body weeps, the heart screams.
But it’s clear what all the signs mean.
Reach not for the stars, take from the earth.

Lying silently in a pool of falsities.
I throw my heart away.
It’s weak and knows nothing about me now.
I forsake the day, and give into fantasies.

The Memory Remains

Why can’t we coexist?
I stand here,
Seemingly betrayed by the feelings that persist.
Bound, tied, forevermore.
Fleeting memories of pain fading away.
Yet we stand on opposite sides of the door.

Destiny broke what was pure.
A soul defiled, a soul insecure.
What is real?
How can a heart heal?
Time, past, forgotten.
Endlessly chasing the never again.
Crushed eternally by sin.

Reanimate, and kill.
Forever haunted by innocent blood spilled.
Despite it all, there remains only one thing I feel.
A heart does not lie.
It refuses to change its ways, even as days go by.
Bound, always tied.
Even in the belief of severing chains.
The memory remains.

Maiden of the Shadows

Raindrops fallen on hallowed grounds.
The night is still, no lights, no sounds.
Blessings sent, everlasting in the night time fire.
Maiden of the Shadows, granting rest to souls who tire.

Raindrops fallen on hallowed land. Here, where no men stand.
Blessings sent, feelings of heart in hand.
Maiden of the Shadows, granting rest to souls who solemnly demand.

Raindrops fallen on hallowed earth.
The end of days brings true beginning’s birth.
Blessings sent, trinkets to spirits that bear little worth.
Maiden of the Shadows, granting rest to souls who thirst.

Raindrops fallen no more.
In the center of death, its heart, its core.
Blessings unsent, forgotten pledges, at time’s hand unsewn.
Maiden of the Shadows, denying rest to souls unknown.

Atarashii Yoake

The sun is rising, ushering in a new day.
The light shines and chases night away.
I look up to the skies and say,
I look up to the skies and say.

Don’t tell me we are all so small
Not when I want to fly,
Not when I want to see it all.
The world is full, the world is new.
There’s so much to see,
And all the things I want to do.

Let’s write a story, one we never heard before.
A story of changing fates
One of new sounds and shapes.
A story that never ends,
No matter how far we go once our journey begins.

I want more,
I want more.

The sun is rising, ushering in a new day.
The light shines and chases night away.
I look up to the skies and say,
I look up to the skies and say

Don’t tell me the sky’s too far.
Not when I can reach out and touch the stars.
There is no limit only beyond.
Let’s forget the world and who we are and let infinity take us.
Let adventure fill our minds,
Let adventure fill our minds.

The sun is rising, ushering in a new day.
The light shines and chases night away.
I look up to the skies and say,
I look up to the skies and say

The sun is rising, ushering in a new day.
The light shines and chases night away.
I look up to the skies and say,
I look up to the skies and say

I want more
I want more

The sun is rising, ushering in a new day.
The light shines and chases night away.
I look up to the skies and say,
I look up to the skies and say
