Lyrics

Dark Matter

The bitter pill is so hard to swallow
I can not make it here on my own
The light that used to dwell in me
Even the stars will fade out one day

There is dark dark dark dark matter within me
Won’t you keep keep keep keep it from growing
There is dark dark dark dark matter within me
Won’t you keep it from growing

And while life beats me down
It is us against the universe

A mass too inhumane to bear
Far beyond the weight of the world
And we are like freight trains without brakes
Or like planets on a crashing course

There is dark dark dark dark matter within me
Won’t you keep keep keep keep it from growing
There is dark dark dark dark matter within me
Won’t you keep it from growing

Lyrics by Tuomo Laulainen

Left on Read

We evolve
Just backwards
We’re the masters of procrastination
Making history in repetition

To mistreat or to retreat
Your god only lives in deceit
The faith in humanity
Restored to the obsolete

Can’t you see the world burning?
It’s the one we left on read

We heard the prophets
What did they tell us?
We saw the writings on the walls
Swipe left to ignore it all

To mistreat or to retreat
Your god only lives in deceit
The faith in humanity
Restored to the obsolete

To mistreat or to retreat
Your god only lives in deceit
The faith in humanity
Restored to the obsolete

Our world was built on greed and lies
Na na na na na na
Na na naa naa naa
Miscarried dreams as compromise

Lyrics by Tuomo Laulainen

No Riddance

I wore mine on my sleeve
I guess I was naive
And chained to my believes
Vulnerable and gullible

Unstable
Unable
Unwilling to let go
Derailing and aching
Broken beyond repair
Stubborn piece of flesh
From muscle memory
Pumping poison through my veins

For as long as it beats your name
This story remains unchanged
For as long as it beats your name

What led you to find mine?
Were you lost, out of your mind?
Did my demons scare you away?
Or did your demons lead you astray?

Unstable
Unable
Unwilling to let go
Derailing and aching
Broken beyond repair
Stubborn piece of flesh
From muscle memory
Pumping poison through my veins

For as long as it beats your name
This song will remain unchanged
For as long as it beats your name

Lyrics by Tuomo Laulainen

If These Walls Could Talk

Vulnerable
Facing the blade on the edge of trust
The blame is on me
If I am to open my mouth
Trust you with my words
The weapon

As I learned to scream
I was crying for your help
But Somewhere along the way
I quit sharing it all with you
Now silence screams
Messages unclear
The loudest words unspoken

I should have known
My words were like daggers
Now thorn in my flesh
You never kept your words
I should have never trust in you
You took my words
And with them stabbed right through me

If these walls could talk
I think they’d share my pain with you
If these walls could talk
Words would pierce right through your soul
And If these walls could talk
Daggers would fly towards you
Make your world crumble down

As I learned to scream
I was crying for your help
But Somewhere along the way
I quit sharing it all with you
Now silence screams
Messages unclear
The loudest words unspoken

Now my walls are crumbling down
Walls are crumbling down
Now my walls are crumbling down

Lyrics by Tuomo Laulainen

Lullaby of the Ill-Fated

Born without a voice
Under foul stars
This story was pre-written a tragedy
Set to bear this burden
When two blackest hearts entwined
Stained at birth
Ill-fated child

Born without a choice
Under the bleakest skies
You were delivered
Swaddled to a grave
It is in your blood
It is in DNA
What you inherit
You’re destined to carry
And bury

My ill-fated child
Made of hate to deteriorate
My ill-fated child

From the cradle
To the grave
Doomed by heritance
Under these foul stars
Frail by Design
Doomed by heritance

From the cradle
To the grave
Doomed by heritance
Under these foul stars
Frail by Design

Lyrics by Tuomo Laulainen

Burden

Witnessed my collapse
Saw my downfall
Struggling to find a grip
I’ve been looking everywhere
No direction
Nothing to lean on

I tremble in the wind
Shuttered before life
I’ve learnt to cherish the burden
Well enough to become one
And the choice now
Is to unlearn or to die a martyr

When
Life
Shatters
Us
Even further
Can
Not
Find
A grip
The pain still lingers
The
Shards
Wound
Me
As you slipped through my fingers

When
Life
Shatters
Us
Even further
Can
Not
Find
A grip
The pain still lingers
Did
Shards
Wound
You
As life slipped through your fingers

Is it too soon?
Is it too late?
How much more can I take?
Will it this time be
Any different?

Hands too sore
To hold on
Unable to let go
Of the chains around the bleeding heart
The pain is strong
My heart’s wide open
Are you blind enough to be hoping?

Lyrics by Tuomo Laulainen

Empty Canvas

Layers building
Cannot erase
Cannot purify
Cannot leave behind

Another chapter
a new story
Different people
with scars alike

Colours fading
Traces hidden
Painting over past forbidden
an empty canvas
Even slightest marks
are unforgiven

Colours fading
traces hidden
almost forgotten
an empty canvas
purify me

Blurred meanings
the brush is worn
Missing fragments
of entity

Another chapter
a new story
Another traitor
with scars alike

Colours fading
traces hidden
Painting over past forbidden
an empty canvas
Even slightest marks
are unforgiven

Colours fading
traces hidden
almost forgotten
an empty canvas
purify me

Colours fading
traces hidden
Painting over past forbidden
an empty canvas
Even slightest marks
are unforgiven

Colours fading
an empty canvas
purify me

Painting over past forbidden
Colours fading
traces hidden
an empty canvas
purify me

Lyrics by Tuomo Laulainen

Relapse

Numb
I need to numb myself to feel the pain
For what you brought hurts way beyond all the pain
All the pain

Done
I am so done going through this all again
My life keeps repeating this same circle
Over and over

I am waiting for you here
Where the light of hope faded away
Alone I’m waiting for you still
Although I know you won’t return
Invain I strife to cure myself
To find out what is it that’s killing me
Is it you or is it me?

I am waiting for you here
Where the light of hope faded away
Alone I’m waiting for you still
Although I know you won’t return
Invain I strife to cure myself
To find out what is it that’s killing me

Lyrics by Tuomo Laulainen

Drown

That’s the way it goes
Again I shattered myself
And when I try to grab the rope
I can’t get a hold

The fear in my soul
Too hard to overcome alone
I need you to be by my side
And let the sorrow drown

Grab my hand and off we go
Into the river freezing cold
Below the surface
We will find the final peace
To end it all
Don’t try to fight against the stream
Just let it take
Our lives and these days of pain

As your cold hand let mine go
I was where I once started from
And again my fears are growing on my soul
Thats the way life goes
I could suffer all alone
But still I need You
By my side and let the sorrow drown

Grab my hand and off we go
Into the river freezing cold
Below the surface
We will find the final peace
To end it all
Don’t try to fight against the stream
Just let it take
Our lives and these days of pain

Grab my hand and off we go
Into the river freezing cold
Below the surface
We will find the final peace
To end it all
Don’t try to fight against the stream
Just let it take
Our lives and these days of pain

Lyrics by Lassi Pollari, Tuomo Laulainen & Mikko Ruuska

Live to Regret

The pain
Has come to stay
No words
Can portray

The things I did
And what I did not
Regretfully I’ll tie the knot
And take the plunge to where I regret no more

Live another day
The pain will fade away
That’s what they all say
The lies that they have told
Are the words I learned to know
The ones I carved into the stone

I live
To regret
I live
In debt
Wasting my life waiting for nothing
Wasting away I keep on falling
Your disregard is the only thing unconditional

The things I did
And what I did not
Regretfully I’ll tie the knot
And take the plunge to where I regret no more

Live another day
The pain will fade away
That’s what they all say
The lies that they have told
Are the words I learned to know
The ones I carved into the stone
