Track Name: Nebel
die enge
treibt
mich weiter
nach vorn

die masse
gibt
keinen
raum

und jeder blick
nach hinten
bleibt ohne hoffnung

die berührung
lässt mich stoppen,
doch ich bin taub

in diesem nebel
liegt das,
was ich versuch' zu finden
kein schritt zurück

der graue boden
kennt mein starren
das leid und
die angst

in diesem nebel:
ein einsamer weg
Track Name: Oubliette
all dark
but one
who seemed
familiar

sunken
ribs
kneel
on
floor

they took
me back
they say
i'm theirs

they say
that this is
home

i will
never
leave
Track Name: Grau
risse
in
mir

diffus;
ein schmerz
zieht sich
durchs mark

das grau
zersetzt mich
nimmt mir
die kraft

alles was bleibt
ist das elend vor mir
der ekel vor mir

langsam; zehrend geht es vorbei
Track Name: Asylum
scarred skin
covered
with branches
countless
threads
of stories
untold

shelter
opens

echoes
fall silent
hope begins
to thaw

these winds
take the fear
these winds:
calamitous fear

fall into
layers of soothing

abandon
these doubts

abandon
and be free
Track Name: Vessel
sudden scents of new surroundings
the air is damp and thick

no second sight wakes
remembrance
my eyes are tired
opened wide

yet; no
memories
come to mind

it seems as if
the river's flow
is reversed

fading
consciousness
a body; a vessel
falling unharmed

endless; anxious
Track Name: Shiver
tremble
as the clouds
pass us by

time has
no value
where they
remain

somehow alive
hollow inside

tremble
in motion
Track Name: Monolog
in the
full glare
of hope
hopelessness
stumble blind
across these rocks,
without fear
falling down to the
sea

wake in false light
the landscape changed,
a current
flowing constantly;
dredging black
inside my bones

hold the hand offered
down this well

everything conspired
to manifestations;
monologue
