Reaching for the mystery in me, The one alive but unaware Of what’s controlling me The force we cannot see, we cannot flee In service to an illusion of control That is just a disguise for the world A fantasy, I’m living in a false reality Can’t scream, cannot wake up Pushed down and forced to crawl Bound to fulfil your every command Can’t fight, cannot rise up Just cannot make it stop I am the marionette A life enslaved, a soul in chains A million tries to break the strings That for so long have held me tight The time has come for one more fight Against the power that you wield Over my every move I cannot hide You are the eyes tearing through my helpless mind Can’t scream, cannot wake up Pushed down and forced to crawl Bound to fulfil your every command I’ll fight I will rise up To somehow make it stop To kill the marionette Feel the tension on the strings That jerk my limbs, that pull my thoughts Pull me, shape me, set my sight I'll fight you, I'll beat you I want my control back Your commands will mean nothing to me As I pull myself away I scream, I’m waking up My fingers climb the wall My form obeys my every command I stand, I’m rising up Your voice chokes to a stop I slew the marionette

Time is all you had and it’s fading Mourning for the loss of memory And do you recognise me when you're dreaming? Close your eyes and see me For mine are reddened and streaming For the time that's flown Hold my hand and feel the moments we stood By each other, silent, side by side And we laughed and swore we'd never forget these Memories we were sharing As I'm watching you wither, Now I know they're gone Why don't you remember my face? Why don't you remember all our years together When you held me near? As you're drifting onwards to the sunset, I don't want to have to watch you die And I say goodbye to you As you lay there, knowing now that I was fading out of your mind's eye, I died long ago

Whispering hair As grey as the mountain Only a burden in time of need Carry me there A future less in doubt with One less mouth to feed Remember me In the way you see When you return alone A path of leaves Between the trees To find your way back home There was a time I carried you inside me This is the night you carry me I spread my arms wide To clear a path behind me To pull the leaves from the trees Remember me In the way you see When you return alone A path of leaves Between the trees To find your way back home Don't look behind Don't stay here waiting Don't regret what you had to do The stars are aligned The moonlight is fading I've cleared the way for you Remember me In the way you see When you return alone A path of leaves Between the trees To find your way back home

A sigh A tear A wake for another passing year The chance that I threw away In search of the perfect words to say All the things I can't forget From a past that's always set The season of regret Have we reached it yet? My end My start The images are burned into my heart The voices of those I passed by Still speak to me no matter where I hide I can only look behind All the shadows of the mind That's all that you will find With my path still blind Don't look for me Just ignore me Broken by the time Don't speak to me Just look through me Burning in a hell that's truly mine Falling to my knees I pray Shut me down, take me away from me I burn my eyes, my sight destroyed The images I can't avoid I see These wounds These scars A prison with the past in place of bars The pain returns to me yet Eternal is my season of regret

Night falls once again, chills the fear in her soul An endless forest so lost, so cold Home, a reverie lost inside her mind Those fading memories let her feel alive Fate had made her stay away Rage and anger made her stray Pleads to mother in tearful cries Fading memories were her only guide "Mother, father, take me home!" She pleads into the dark all alone "Hold me tight, in this night" Not an echo responds Alone and starving Why do they not search for her? Lost for so long She won't belong Would they still cry If she died? She tries to escape, But doesn't know her fate Just a phantom with no memory Of the night she died

Waking frozen, bonded still A living dream I can't depart I'm only looking into me The places that my thoughts can dart Should I lie in wait until I scream and pull myself apart? A hundred eyes that I can't see That locked the iron around my heart A shattered shell of broken dreams Stripped and bleeding on the floor Wounds that never will wash clean A rusted dagger through my core Chains of iron hold my being To face whatever is in store The pain and anguish I have seen The rope still hanging from the door I am the weight that holds you down Silence you without a sound Your mouth is solid, frozen still I am the iron that fights your will Get your hands away from me Your freezing fingers on my spine Speak to me as if I care Speak to me like I was there Remove these bonds and set me free Alone and hungry all this time I am the freedom you can't find Because I'm only in your mind Get my hands away from me My freezing fingers on my spine Shackled to the Fear Shackled to the Fear

Cerca de ti Ya no estoy, Ya no estoy Bajo tu luz, Quiero soñar Que no existe más El sufrimiento Contra el que luchas Día a día Te hieren más, Sin importar Lo que das sin pensar Y ahora estás distante Vivirías sin dolor ni rencor Si no hubiera poder Parte de mi ser, Dejaste tu marca en mi piel Parte de mi alma Te volveré a ver mi amada Venezuela

Can you hear a scream of pain if echoes just remain? Can you smell the burning if you cannot see the flame? The meaning in the silence, the words behind the page Walls alone are not a cell, nor steel bars a cage You couldn’t hear the tears that were whispering your name Standing there, waiting for the words that never came Even in the widest space The walls were closing in The look upon your pretty face Reflected in my skin Look at me, please look at me, please catch me as I fall I’m pleading with you for my life, yet you stay in my thrall Don’t follow me, don’t follow me, I needed you to lead The tighter that you held me, the more my wounds would bleed Your arms, a place of solitude, a meaningless embrace Glancing past the agony engraved upon my face Two souls are brought together Remain so far apart The warmest touch of love can be A dagger through the heart A smile and a pirouette, the inside fades to black A meeting of two lovers, cold and standing back to back Caught in the aftermath Your empty eyes just staring through me Watching as I fell The last thing that I saw as I Descended into hell

Don’t seek, for someone near you Don’t weep, no one will hear you Don’t speak, your worthless mind makes Only those empty words with a Voice that makes no sound Forced to turn your eyes down And gaze upon the ground To hide your shame, you’re Faceless, We can stare right through you, you’re Faceless, The blackness speaking to you, you’re Faceless, Without recognition, you’re Faceless, Just an apparition Why do you play at living or Try to find us forgiving I do not want to see you Cry to me seeking love with a Voice that makes no sound Forced to turn your eyes down And gaze upon the ground To hide your shame, you’re Faceless, We can stare right through you, you’re Faceless, The blackness speaking to you, you’re Faceless, Without recognition, you’re Faceless, Just an apparition Faceless Faceless Be gone from my presence, You don’t deserve a name Pathetic and disgusting Cowering in shame You just demean us by Dragging your problems here Bleatings of a no one Nobody wants to hear Faceless, We can stare right through you, you’re Faceless, The blackness speaking to you, you’re Faceless, Without recognition, you’re Faceless, Just an apparition Faceless

Flying under the silent stars The freedom of release A burden lifted from the heart A troubled soul at peace Flying under the silent stars The moonlight on the sea Passing on to places far Wherever they may be Flying under the silent stars Alone, unburdened, free. The cries of pain, the shouts of war Will speak no more to me Flying under the silent stars The ocean underneath A message back to where you are To shed no tear of grief
