Track Name: Loveless
I can not see the light around me
this emptiness overwhelms me
you've thrown me out of your life.

You see the scars on me,
the scars of this pain.
Track Name: Eternal Sleep
Deep forgetfulness
forgotten by everyone I am now nullity
the eternal sleep.

Cold and desolate
this is the place I deserve
no one will call me
no voice I'll feel.

Lost in a world with no beginning neither end
caught into darkness
I no longer exist.
Track Name: Lost Moments
For every time i took your hand
for every day i spent with you
in this world i walk alone
i'm drowning with noone near me.

My mind is lost
I will never forget those moments, I can not, I need them
another day comes
it is another empty day, it is a hell.

For every time, for every day, for every moment
now I'm drowning.
Track Name: No Destination
Where I am going?
why fatigue myself, why growing hopes
when one day it will all end?
I don't see a reason for this world
I feel lost, I look far away but I see nothing.

Help me,
my life has no meaning

I look in the mirror and i see a person like many others
wandering spirits, empty inside but they smile to the world.

We are always looking for something
we miss, which fills us inside
but we don't find it, and never find.

I feel lost, I look far away but I see nothing.
Track Name: As Time Goes By
Deep night, everything around me is shadow
thinking about what is my meaning in this life,
under a starry sky I reflect on the futility of human actions.

People running always busy, full of problems,
people crushed by the impositions of the world we live in.

My memories follow me, and what I see is just a person sentenced to run to resist this reality
my memories follow me.

One day the end will come and we will not have anything with us, only a cold grave,
as time goes by
I think back to all my moments, now I can no longer live them, I can no longer touch them, see them, feel those emotions that made me alive
but I also realize that my life was just a scramble, keeping up with the times
and I did not have enjoyed it.

My memories follow me, and what I see is just a person sentenced to run to resist this reality
my memories follow me.
It isn't better to live on this night?
In this eternal night.
Track Name: Withering
Like a flower that wilts
my body falls in the void
it's only darkness at the end
and I am falling inside it.

I can't turn back.
Track Name: Pointless
I walked with hope
I faced every day with that force of my heart
but now I don't keep anything in my hands.

See the past and realize that everything is in vain
now I'm leaving, without leaving any signs.

The dream of every day,
waking up to every morning
looking back to gaze the deeds done.

Realize that everything has been pointless
the faces, the people, are no more.

Now I'm leaving, without leaving any signs.
Track Name: The Lump In My Throat
My life is so empty since you left me,
my day is so empty.
I find myself staring at nothing thinking back to that time that never comes back.

My way will never see joys again, neither sunshine
I fall into despair, with this lump in my throat.
I don't have anyone to turn to, no one would understand my pain
I have to bring it by myself.
Track Name: Waiting Time
I've waited for long time
finally this day is here
goodbye sorrow, goodbye illusions
now I am free.
