Track Name: Masquerade
What are you hiding behind your flesh mask?
Even if you decide
to close your eyes,
You can't hide away, can't hide forever
because feelings don't lie,
words don't die.
and the mask will fall off.
Track Name: Carry a Torch
A focus on myself, a reason for my loneliness,
This desert of solitude scares me
My tears had a bitter taste
When you were gone, when all my friends left me alone
I’m looking for a reason to burn, like a torch without its fire
You should hate the old me who hurt you and focus on the people who care about you
Can you hear, the silence in my head,
Can you hear the violence in the sand (x2) of the beach where you lost me.
I need you, I miss you, I feel you and I'm going to, work hard on myself I SWEAR, to be the best I've ever been I SWEAR! (x2)
No trees in the sky, on my face there's no smile.
My house is not the worse, but the saddest, full of old stuff.
Old pictures, old stories, between you and me there is more than a movie.
A focus on myself, a reason for my loneliness,
This desert of solitude scares/frightens me me.
My tears have no taste anymore, I take it upon myself but it’s so hard in the morning
I have no reason to burn, like a torch without its fire.
Track Name: Plane Crash
I feel like I’m in a plane crash,
There’s only one way ahead of us.
Our common love becomes a common sadness
When everything is dark, when you’re caught in a whirlwind,
Nothing can save you, no one can see you

Your hands were cold but I couldn’t warm them
You were here but I felt so far away
Am I too weak to move?
Or do you just weigh me down on purpose?
Do you want us to take the fall together?

Sadness fills me to the brim but still I feel empty
I feel like I’m in a plane crash, there’s only one way ahead of us
Track Name: Proxémie
The cold hits my skin, freezes my head and eats my bones.
My flesh and my blood seem to be made of stone.
The final thoughts before becoming blind
Like a hollow shell, I'm empty and dead inside.
I clear my mind, I feel nothing, I feel nothing.
Am I still a human being?
He showed up on a land he doesn't own.
This destroyed place where he doesn't belong.
This destroyed place where my soul broke down.
My voice was trapped in a cage.
There might be a link with my age.
I was only 5 years old.
And I already felt the cold.
Track Name: Sparkles
I glimpse the sun behind the rainfall.
It's too thick to cross the wall
My smoke-filled head is full of clouds
My ghosts catch me again.
I wasn't so close to the end.
Tied to my ideas
I can't find the keys
To lock up unfairness
you thought you were the king.
But there wasn't any realm
You burned the forest
(But) you didn’t wear any real helm
Tears don’t shed from my eyes but my voice sounds very tight
'cause I heard some whispers:
"there's no cure from the doctors".
Track Name: Void
Little feather, why do I feel like I'm carrying you like a burden?
Little feather, your sweetness turned into nausea, my parched heart can't drink on it
And the mere thought of us being separated from you makes me sick.
The dreaded moment when the questions to ask came up
As I'm about to have my wings cut off
I make the choice not to fly away, not to keep you,
Time has been on the run, but I'm moving in slow motion.
Because my decision must be made quickly but not hastily.
my body will remember the consequences
They interfere in my life
But this feather is mine, I'm the one on the edge of the knife
the consequences will be remembered by my body
Time has resumed its course. I never thought the absence of your lightness would be so heavy.
Little feather I feel like a bird that can only pretend to be
I will not forget and I will no longer suffer.
