PRAGMATICA LYRICS

EMPTINESS
Heart of stone, blackened soul,
this poison infects my blood.
I run away from this crowd
counting the days until my fall.
These are just my words,
that I've never said in this love.
This voice's calling my name,
locked in a shell full of blame,
noises resound in this cage.
I close my black shining eyes,
I scream your name to the sky.
All my mistakes collapsing on me,
burying all my shattered dreams.
Run away from this deadly crowd.
Weigth of the old lies carry me down.
Carry me down.


HOLD FAST
Another day brings other pain.
Another fail, another grave.
I'm so afraid in these times.
Trails of what I left behind.
There's just regret, my heart's for rent.
My soul is lost in the land of the worst tragedies.
My life's for sale. I've felt this pain.
Still the same, I'm so ashamed.
Mistakes become disgrace.
I've waited a train that never came
I'm walking roads I've never crossed.
I feel the stench of my wasted breath.
I've waited a train that never came
I'm walking in roads I've never crossed.
Trying to cheat on this end.
So let me, so let me, let me die in this sea.
So let me, so let me, let me sink with my ship.

CONFESSION
What I've done, what I've said,
What I've screamed, What I've paid,
What I've left through these golden days.
What I've learned, what I've leads,
What I've hoped, What I've dreamed,
stopped like a breathless scream.
What I've breathed, what I've needed,
stopped like a breathless scream
Hey brother forgive me
Hey father forgive me
I'm sorry for everything.
Forgive me for all my blame,
Forgive all my mistakes,
trapped in this fucking cage,
without a way to escape.
I'm still hating you all...Fuck !!!

UNKNOWN
Just shadows reflected on a wall,
held in a room without a door
slaves unaware of being lords,
scared by the greeds of this world
So now I understand,
ready to fall apart again.
Can I continue pretend?
Can I wait in vain the end?
There's no more time to waste

STILLBORNS
So dark the goal of men..
Their actions speak for them..
Can we save us from ourselves? Reborn....
We feel the death inside, ask to yourself why.
Born, grow, obey and die 'cause truth has been denied.
So many lies to erase our crimes that we've left behind.
So young to die, too sad to smile.
We're our worst nightmare..
We feel the death inside, time has passed by.
Born, grow, obey and die 'cause truth has been denied.
Darkness became a light for this endless night
silence broken by desperation cries
We're our worst nightmare..
We are the worst plague..
Death of everything..
New sun is rising..
