Track Name: Maskros - Praesto//Petrichor
Das was ich bin, rührt mich um deinetwillen
Denn gegen meine Ordnung fühl' ich mich übertroffen
In meiner Sucht nach der reinen Form -
Verissen in die Rich-tungen, die ich mir selbst erschuf

A fain scent stirring up my mind
Distance in this makes no difference
Don't let go
Make it turn out different
I can't hold on

Acceptance
Being back in this place again
The shadows cast on the ground all point to you
I'm losing control
I know what I'm about to do
Track Name: Kaji - Lesion Season
Father!

How's the stench?
How's the feed?
Left in sand, you've wiped me clean
Hear me out, keep me quiet
You've seen my company
My ghost just weaves in, so effortlessly

Your daughter's hand is absent
But my room door, it's left open
The ceiling light casts a patient indulgent in my cessation

You're trembling now
Faster and faster
I'm wearing you out
Faster and faster

You told me yesterday that you'd be there for me
But I keep you company, such quiet company
Put the bottle down, find another muse
Relieve yourself without abuse
In the mirror glass you see the truth, my body's aging
But Dad, I'm coming home soon

I wear my red lips uneven
The harvest of the season, your painting in lesions
This season I'm coming home
I hide in the dark and sleep beneath your feet
I am the voice that you hear, a whisper of your deeds
This season I'm coming home for you

Don't hide from me now
Father oh Father
Comfort me, comfort me now
In death and forever

In death and forever
In death, forever
Track Name: Astrid - Forgiving Is A Choice, Forgetting Isn't
Lit cigarettes dance through our fingers
Like our thoughts - prancing more than it ever should
And the silence between our words spoke more than we ever could
A clash of black and white, of hate and love
Of so much guilt and pain tainted on the white sheets we can't erase
Stark memories tucked between creases

More chilling, interlacing
Never escaping and it wrecks our nerves
And it wrecks our minds, our bodies, our conscience
So tell me how can we dance now
How is it possible that our feet are in sync like we've always known each other
How do our fingers interlock like vines intertwined
How did the stars align, how is that we're here again?

Take me away from this place
Take me away from my mind
Take me away from myself
Take me away

(Erase, erase)
Cause my mind's a wreck and my body's frail
(Unsee, unsee)
These ghosts are forever haunting me
(Save me, save me)
Cause I have been struggling to grasp on anything
(Erase, erase)

Like sand running through my fingers
The end has been written in stone
And I'm giving up scribbling on these walls
The number of times that I've tried
But lost anyway

There is no one else in the mirror
There is no one else in the mirror
There is no one else in the mirror, but me

It has always been easy to push the blame on me
So I can carry the weight of perception
Of never trying hard enough
But there comes a point where your knees buckle
And you can't feel your shoulders
And you admit defeat
You admit defeat

You swallowed the bitter pill
You were never in control
Never in control of anything
Track Name: This Too Will Pass - Meat Wagon
The stench of fear keeps crawling under the skin
It's breeding inside like cancer among flesh and bones
These cold dim eyes are staring out of dark holes
Once can see their mind is longing for something outside

We don't have the courage to leave this way
We are dying slow, we are dying slow
This yearning keeps burning
The cogwheels keep turning
There are no dreams left to fill this void
We are dying slow, we are dying slow
This yearning keeps burning
The cogwheels keep turning

Are we here by choice or for the want of possibilities?
Placed on the market, we are nothing but abbatoir waste

We don't have the courage to leave this way
We are dying slow, we are dying slow
This yearning keeps burning
The cogwheels keep turning
There are no dreams left to fill this void
We are dying slow, we are dying slow
This yearning keeps burning
The cogwheels keep turning

Get in line, just waiting for something
That's a concept we call hope
Get in line, just waiting for something
That's a concept we call hope

We drag ourselves to the grinder
The body is being severed from mind
Track Name: A City Sorrow Built - Mimpi#1
Jika ingatan empat tahun itu adalah angin
Ia akan menyerbu sudut-sudut kelam dunia dengan ingatan tentangnya
Berputar pada ruang sanubari dan lenyap karena berlalu
Sesaat ia dinginkan panas ketika jiwa terkuras

Lewat apapun makna dari yang ia punya
Ingatkan selalu pada waktu yang singkat itu
Katakan bahwa kita pernah membeli mimpi
Epos yang kita bentuk dalam harapan sendiri

(Ku tinggal raut pecah di semayam malam
Rasa rindu takkan pernah bisa menghidupiku)

Tinggalkan perih langkahmu
Menghitung jejak jarak mundur
Menyambung setiap inci mendekatimu
Kini sampai sesak nafas mengejarmu

Prajurit memori berteriak padaku,
"Saat-saat ketika kita tidak menjadi suatu saat
Biarkan ia hidup dan berbisik pada ragamu
Mimpi seorang anak ada ketika mata terbuka"

(Ku kubur raut jeram di padang kenangan
Rasa rindu menghentak kaki melangkah maju)
Tinggalkan perih langkahmu
