bld_deathbythousandcuts_etukansi_600px

LOOK AT ME NOW

Look at me now
I’m somewhat broken And misplaced

Look at me now
My mind was stolen By your games

Look at me now
I’m somewhat broken And misplaced

Look at me now
My mind was stolen By your games

There’s no helping hand
There’s a deal written on the sand There’s no hiding place
The devil works in mysterious ways

Now you need to know
That things are buried but not erased There’s no hiding place
The devil works in mysterious ways

Well look at me now
I’m far away been broken I’m not broken anymore

Look at me now
My mind is not stolen It’s not stolen anymore

 

ON FIRE

Walk me through the broken glass – I’m not bleeding
Toss me to the fire and to the sun
Drag me through the nine circles of suffering
Feed us to your demons as they come

Your words are paper leaves on fire
Can’t you see how they’re eating us alive?
I’m the flames in need to get higher
Nothing can smother it this time

The sun goes down so that we can see the stars

Come closer to the fire and let us get lost
into it’s movement on the walls
We can not deny this feeling of warmth
as we watch things dissolve

Your words are paper leaves on fire
Can’t you see how they’re eating us alive?
I’m the flames in need to get higher
Nothing can smother it this time

Walk me through the broken glass – I’m not bleeding
Toss me to the fire and to the sun
Follow me through the five stages of grief
Lead us to the death by thousand cuts

Your words are paper leaves on fire
Can’t you see how they’re eating us alive?
I’m the flames in need to get higher
Nothing can smother it this time

THE WAY WE WANTED

Don’t you feel the fire?
The devil’s dancing on your left and right shoulder
Can’t you hear the sirens?
They play those damned notes over and over and over

Now what is left
will never disappear
But what is dead
will not be compensated

During these countless hours
You feel like nothing matters
Are we unpowered?
Could there be something better?

Tearing down the memories
Holding on to what matters
Ripping off the misery
Holding on to what matters

What to say to a man who has it all?
How to fight against the forces that are making him fall?

The way we wanted
This is not the way we wanted
The way we wanted
You know this ain’t the way we wanted

Don’t you feel the fire?
The devil’s dancing on your left and right shoulder
Can’t you hear the sirens?
They play those damned notes over and over

During these countless hours
Are we unpowered?
During these countless hours
Are we unpowered?
Could there be something better?

Now what is left
will never disappear

 

UNDER THE KNIFE

Words – Spat out in anger
Hatred – Now let it linger
Bitter – Is the taste in my mouth
Disaster – I need to let it outAll this time I was boiling over
Contemplating the things that I’m afraid of
And tonight I am showing thunder
Recreating the world of hurt again

Fighting against myself
Cutting you out, out of my mind

All that I had was desire
It’s gone under my knife
And where we were
was a place much higher
It’s all under my knife

And what is left is our world on fire
It’s now under my knife
Now where are you? I am so tired
All has gone under my knife

What I had was desire – It’s gone
Under my knife
Now where we were was a place much higher – It’s all
Under my knife
And what is left is our world on fire – It’s now
Under my knife
Now where are you? I am so tired – All has gone
Under my knife

Knife, toss yourself under my knife
Join me under my knife
toss yourself under my knife

FIRST SIGN

First sign of weakness
First time I saw you there
broke my image of perfection

First sign of helplessness
First time you did not care
shattered the feeling of protection

I’ve seen your heavens fall
and watched you in a moment of despair
I’ve seen your heavens fall
and watched you broken and praised
I’ve seen your heavens fall
and watched you been swallowed by the flames

First sign of weakness
First sign of weakness

First sign of weakness
When we had nothing to spare
Made us hunger for more and more
The time for selfishness came with signs of end
And did tear us apart again

I’ve seen your heavens fall
and watched you broken and praised
I’ve seen your heavens fall
and watched you been swallowed by the flames

First sign of weakness
First sign of weakness
Broken and praised

I’ve seen you heavens fall
And watched you in a moment of despair
I’ve seen your heavens fall
and watched you been swallowed by the flames

Your heavens fall

FREAKED

That wasn’t joke
I tried to hold on
And Im going on
Still without fate

Days are burning marks
Marks of my life
Just take your time now
Im still alive

Understand what is missing
Scandalous – is it charming?
In Murdello we live
The place for the freaked ones
‘Cause of Murdello we feel
Eyes blind evermore

That wasn’t joke
I tried to hold on
And Im going on
Still out of my mind

And days are burning marks
Marks of my life
Just take your time now
Im still alive

Time washes the time
Days as seconds
Face the sky that cries you free
That cries you free

 

 

ELECTRONIC

Electronic manufacture
Gives us the license to
kill by pushing the buttons
And our hands stay clean

Virtual sexuality
Keeps us from meeting our soul-mates
by deleting our desire to find
A new race is born
Electronic

By Watching their faces you can find the vision
By searching the meanings you will find the way
Which is, electronic

We kill our darlings and reject our past
We kill our memories and reject the truth

This is, electronic

Virtual sexuality
Keeps us from meeting our soul-mates
by deleting our desire to find
A new race is born
Electronic

Electronic manufacture
Electronic sexuality
Electronic way to live
Electronic universe
Electronic way to disappear

Upload me into outer-space
Show me a shortcut to the grace
Keep me away from this nonsense
Cause I prefer something else

HELL IS AROUND THE CORNER

At this hour of deception
The world just got black
Oh I can’t see the sky

No truth, no dimensions
Just fill my mind
With your lies, lies, lies

At the moment of redemption
The sky was still dark
But I could follow the stars

They got my attention
I broke from my path
And reached for the ones too far

How deep is the sea that keeps on drowning me?
How thick is the ground crumbling under me?

Hell is around the corner
It keeps on waiting
And will never sleep

I know I must be stronger
No time for drowning
As I beat the hell out of me

Hell is around the corner
It keeps on waiting
to crawl inside of me

Inside of me, Inside of me
While it keeps on waiting
Inside of me, Inside of me
Hell is around the corner

How deep is the sea that keeps on drowning me?
How thick is the ground crumbling under me?

At the moment of redemption
I could follow the stars
They got my attention
I reached for the ones too far
At the hour of deception
I couldn’t see the sky
No truth, no dimensions
Keep feeding me with lies, lies,lies
How deep is the sea?
How black is the sky?
Why won’t they let me be?
How deep is the sea?
They’re crawling inside of me

AFRAID OF TOMORROW

In our eyes can be seen the color of desperation
Our posture hides the marks of submission
We are pushing ourselves to the limit of devastation

Look around
Where are you?
What have we done?

What happened to the world we once embraced?
What happened to the changes we used to face?

What happened to the world we once embraced?
Do we miss those times or are we afraid of tomorrow?
What happened to the changes we used to face?
Do we miss those times or are we afraid of tomorrow?

Look at their ways
Look behind their eyes
Don’t their actions seem too synchronized?
You know that something must have gone wrong
When we’re singing that same old song

It tells about our mistakes and buried rage
It’s the anthem of the long-gone race
About who was wrong and who was right
Where to find the next thing to fight

Back against the wall
No way to turn
You should have never opened that door
One more day to come, one more hour to pass
We could not find a way for this moment to last

Back against the wall
No way to turn
You should have never opened that door
You know that something must have gone wrong
When we’re singing that same old song

THE TIME IS NOW

Running to the edge of this world
Unable to carry nothing with us

Believing we won’t crash and burn
Together nothing will hurt

Searching until unable to go on
Watching light after light fading away

Crawling until unable to hold on
There always seem to be things we are still yearning for

The time is now
Now, our time is now

Running
Our time is now
Believing
Our time is now

SYVIIN VESIIN

Sinua katselen
Taas veitsen terällä astelet
Piikit lävistävät rintasi
Silmäsi huutavat lisää

Sinua katselen
taas syviin vesiin astelet
kylmäksi itsesi valelet
etkä tunne mitään

Ainoa tietäjä on kääntänyt päänsä
Tästä vääryyden hyhmästä täytyy nyt päästä
Et anna itsesi elää – Olet pakotettu löytämään
Kapina, tuska ja häpeä – taas oksennat märkää hiekkaa

Ajasta ahdinkoon
Ja isästä itään
Kaivoit hautasi häpeään
Etkä saavuttanut mitään

Taas hukuit varjoihin
Katosit alle pinnan
Takaisin pimeään
Syvään veteen kylmään

Ajasta ahdinkoon
Takaisin pimeään

minua katselet
taas syviin vesiin astelen
kylmäksi itseni valelen
enkä tunne mitään

 

 

AGAINST EACH OTHER

bld-AEO

AGAINST EACH OTHER

Keep a distance because this rage is increasing.
Fall back, your will is never going to happen.
Keep a distance because this rage is increasing.
Step aside because I will lose control.

Hate, annihilate, exterminate with a drop of ignorance.
Banish, irritate, eliminate for your actions you are innocent.
Blame it on the current moral. Blame it on the system.
Blame it on a will of your god.
Blame it on a will of man and his creations.

We against the world.
Me against you.
They against the rest.
Us against each other.

Your success results from the lack of my will.
Your happiness is a needle in my flesh.
Opening the wounds that are unable to heal.

Agitate, dominade, invade.
Turn all positive things to negative.
I refuse to leave, I refuse to stay.
Anything, against your best interest.

Blame it on the current moral.
Blame it on the system.
Blame it on the current moral.
Blame it on the system.
Blame it on the will of your god.
Will of your god.

WALLS INSIDE US

Push back beyond the need, the thing you want to be.
You’re trying to break us down.
Glitter, shine, Overrun everyone.
The only thing that matters in your twisted mind –
success at any cost – ongoing fight.
I wanna have control.

Cold, so cold and distant is that goal of your dreams
(Inside us – walls inside us).
In time you’ll face the menace that will demolish your life in bliss
(Inside us – walls inside us).

Lay down. Hide yourself. Hold your breath.
You built a wall around yourself.
Feel the burden of the stones.
Mind is secured and sealed.
Oblivion forevermore.
The only thing that matters in your twisted mind,
admiration at any cost ongoing fight.
I wanna have control.

Unstoppable oblivion.

Im not gonna take it any- more.
You’ll never have control.
You’ll never see us fall.
You’ll never make the rules.
You’ll never have it all.

 

RED RIVERS

Tamed is a man without a will.
Holding a void too wide to fill.
Subside to serve was the way he chose.
Dropping on his back with his neck exposed.
Authorities dragging him through the halls.
Red red rivers dripping on the floor.
Unable to stand but capable to crawl.
With only thing in his mind is “I want more”.

Sinking deep into mediocrity.
No way out, he’s unable to breath.
Sinister things in a form of a thrill.
The thing he knows best is how to stand still.

Best not to move, nor to enjoy.
You know that temptation is not a toy.
Best not to move, nor to hope.
You know that free will is not allowed.

Best not to move, nor to enjoy.
You know that temptation is not a toy.
Best not to move, nor to hope that free will is not allowed.
Best not to move, nor to enjoy.
You know that temptation is not a toy.
Best not to try, nor to win. It is written that jealousy is a sin.

Red red rivers lead us away.
Dead is the water under us.

Best not to move.

Silenced is a man without a chance.
Running away as fast he can.
The only real truth is what has been told.
For him the happiness lays in a chokehold.
Silenced is a man, silenced is a man.

Silenced….Silenced is a man.

FLIES OVER THE WRECK

Hold, keep it down.
Swallow the colors.
No sound mouth to mouth.
Look into terror.

Chaos reigns, robotic fury. Heresy in change.
Implement dogma to duties. Blackened days of haze.
Necromantic arcane frantic. Serenity in change.
Reproduction, comprehension, derelict and drained.

Hold, keep it down.
Swallow the colors.
No sound mouth to mouth.
Look into terror.

Hours left, to sleep is to get wet.
Turn towards that nodding head.
Exclusion, retribution, vitality now the thinnest tread.
Misused freedom of creation.
Drunk hell spitfire and death.
Woe forever until together. Decimate the liars debt.

Hold, keep it down.
Swallow the colors.
No sound mouth to mouth.
Look into terror.

The purging takes courage.
All different stories reminded of abused intestinal pits.
All mirrors are mocking. Stomach is twisting.
The last drop should have been enough.
No more I see flies over the wreck.

Hold, keep it down.
Swallow the colors.
No sound mouth to mouth.
Look into terror.

WAITING FOR THE RAIN

Walking through the path of sorrow.
So steep, so cold and so dark.
We got lost to this place so hollow.
We will live and we will die.

What if? what if?
What if our words could bring some hope?
Still waiting for the rain.

Tripping on this road we follow.
So steep, so cold and so dark.
Cold-hearted was the fight against unknown.
We did live and we did die.

Watch how Im walking through the fields.
Ripping off everything I’ve ever seeded.
Blinded by the things that could have been.
Just let the circles flow.

What if our words could bring some hope to these days?
What if we’re walking pass those moments, still waiting for the rain?
What if the happiness could be summoned and show us it’s face?
..and we are stuck in our old ways.

SERENE

Aspiration and tragedy behind the pounding hearts.
Wealth and property they did push me far.
Worlds made of plastic filling our hollow minds.
Destinies too tragic passed by with closed eyes.

Wake up in the heart of hastiness.
Breaking from the path they built for us all.

World, make me a noise.
I’m serene – serenity.
Gods, raise me a hell.
I’m serene – serenity.
Leaders, leave me no choice.
I’m serene – serenity.
Cultures eating each other. I’m serene – serenity.

Serenity – The Weapon of mind.
Serenity – A perfect diversion.

Aspiration and tragedy.
Wealth and property.
Behind the pounding hearts.
They did push me far.

BEING & ENDING

An overdose of things yet to do becomes the fuel to determine the reason to choose.
When the queen of choise is waving goodbye.

An overdose of things yet to do becomes the fuel to determine the reason to choose.
Holding me down with unknown powers.
The queen of choice is waving goodbye.

Unison with long gone hours.
Being and ending – wilted and dead.

The queen of choice is waving goodbye.
Being and ending.
Being and ending – wilted and dead.

AGGRESSOR

Show no fear behind that smile.
Show no feeling inside those eyes.
Fear no evil, fear no pain.
Fear no tomorrow, fear no flames.

Choose your colors, make no sound.
Raze their power to the ground.
Fear no evil, fear no pain.
Fear no tomorrow, fear no flames.

World is an aggressor.
Exhaustion and rage bursting to flames.
Show no weakness.
Don’t lead ’em to the prey.
World is a transgressor.
Frustration and hate bursting to flames.

And this world won’t make us fall.
We bang our fists against these walls.
We need to see them crumble.
And this world won’t make us crawl.
We throw ourselves against closed doors.
We need to see them crumble.

And this world won’t make us crawl.
We throw ourselves against closed doors.
We need to see them crumble.
And your words won’t make us small.
We throw ourselves against closed doors.
We need to see them crumble.

World is an aggressor.
We are the transgressors.

CLOSER TO THE SUN

Closer to the sun. Closer to the sun.

I look far above the skyline. I feel it when it hits the sun. You look far above the skyline. You feel it..

See it as a nemesis revealing you the crevices delaying the ability to make you move. Limiting, reseting, eradi- cating within. Supernatural enducing fear to choose. Harmonise the balance in the current ambivalence where the common nominator is only you. Possibility to accept an opening curiously, utilise it as a tool.

You look far above the skyline. You feel it when it hits the sun. “Same me”.

Go around the globe, you are closer to the sun. Come back where you began, you are closer to the sun.

You’ve made a circle, nothing’s the same circle has grown. You’ll feel it when it hits the sun. Somewhere where you can see, you look at the same lights far above the skyline.

I look far about the skyline. I feel it when it hits the sun. You look far above skyline. You feel it when it hits the sun.

Some say distance is measured in triangels. In this mo- ment everything’s close to me. If there is a triangle between us it’s moving circles around us. Somewhere where you can see, you look at the same lights far above the skyline.

Closer. Now I’m closer to the sun. Navigation signal is lost.

EMPIRE

 

Empire

FOR ALL YOU HEAVY-HEARTED

Listen – Learn – Believe – Obey – Watch – Deny -Reject – Hate

Observe – Neglect – Despise – Be afraid – Watch – Deny – Reject – Hate

Where would you go to
How’d you survive
What would be your plan?

Believe
Be afraid

Who’d you rely on
Where’d you bow to
Would this get out of hand?

Deny
Hate

Are we really this lost?
Are you as afraid as I am?
We are using our time waiting for closure

Are we really this lost?
Are you as tired as I have been?
I’ve never seen a man walking on water

Watch – Deny – Reject – Hate

Where would yo go to
How’d you survive
What would be your plan?

Believe – Be afraid

Who’d you rely on
Where’d you bow to
Would this get out of hand?

Deny – Hate

Are we really this lost?
Are you as alone as I have been?
We denyed our needs, and hoped to be chosen

Are we really this lost?
Is your spirit as drained as mine has been?
Our free will was a wall built to be broken

Who made us this way?
Their stories are overrated
Who created these needs?
I know you want your way out, don’t you?

Long-gone theories for all you heavy-hearted

Are we really this lost?

Observe, neglect
Despise, reject

Neel down, repent
Observe, regret

Did this get out of hand?

TIDES

Come storm, come fire, we stride in thunder sea torn asunder now wears the crown Lust, loneliness, unearthed rejection
soul resurrection in forms unknown

New fiend swept off the stains of time On a course to a destination Earthbound yet undetainable
defiant to ride with the tide

Soulflight to a realm beneath the soil Do you deserve a compensation? Lost hope in a maelstrom
still drifting with the tide

Come storm, come fire, we stride in thunder sea torn asunder now wears the crown

Faint recollection, beconing disaster obey the master who sings of doom Asured demise but who’s going under possessed to plunder the virtue in truth

OUT OF THIS PLACE

Take a deep breath World is on a march
turn your back my blood is boiling trust me i won’t be joining them Take a deep breath think about it
walk away, my fists are burning hear people screaming

I have got to get out of this place
I have never made sense of your ways

D’s for divine, E is for elegy A-T-H we both will face with fear in your eyes and my head high
For all your life you wanted to leave this place

Atheists, wars and false beliefs
anything goes as long as it bleeds
come to me, get together and follow
ideas and answers you can always borrow

Leaders, fanatics, fundamentalists built-in-answers and worn-out beliefs
In sickness and in hell, all the things that they tell I know you were watching when their empires fell

Answer that you seek is not the one that I need
I refuse to be a part of your greater plan
I’ve learned by my hands
People with their needs and selfish deeds won’t go away

SAME STORY – DIFFERENT PEOPLE

lines of people coming to me grazed eyes, in need of care keep coming, my arms are wide sanctuary open all night

victims of puring the nation blackmailing, human indignation

same story, different people come to me, faceless people

I see you back in the line hidin’ in the crowd they`re coming for you expiration date is today

crowds, look at me heads high i give you hope to get by in the end i smile you`re leaving today for life

stamp a reclamation post it before expiration wait for salvation in form of a donation

ON THE STARS

My ears are hurting from the sounds of life
Too tired to hear what’s so good in it
My eyes are aching, I can not close them
No need to see other people’s success

This ain’t all that’s left for me
This ain’t my sight of sorrow

My mind’s not focusing on the tasks at hand
My body is weakening, I can not help it
I had no intention to stop my own development
Years ago we already had our lives planned

Our names will be carved on the stars
We’re watching from the sky
Our names will be carved on the stars
You are here just to worship them

Our names – on the stars Our names – on the stars

WORDS HAVE A MEANING

May this be an indication
to paralyze a strife
retrospect a world of “has-beens”
and trust the knowing eyes
some words still have a meaning
echoes and weakened sighs
Rebel to exile the tyrants rule over sedated lives

Ignite the frozen hearts as time departs world only grows so much older redeemers praise over last remains Atlas grew weak from his shoulders

Undeniable projection, Undeny the tool of reason

Expire aims for domination hollow heads been put to slumber Sleeping beauties came together
to hear the sermon, wake to the death of light

HEY BOY I KNOW

Hey, these days I’d need liberation but what have I got Stay sober to recognize what went wrong right from the start Out on a prowl to find the regulations but what I found Is this pile of dirty soil on my hands and that’s what i’m about

Hey boy, I know you’ve got your toys but how about a dream Hey man, you have had your choice, no need to be mean

I raise my voice to be seen but not to be heard State how well I know that my path is already burned I’ll carry out my own execution I will go under

CONFESSION EQUALS SALVATION

fortune tellers, witches, voodoo dolls and people with many faces hypnotics, all our gods, meditation and stories with an unhappy ending

occultism, mind expansers and out-of-body experiences spiritism, body modification figuring out the process of creation

money makers, prophets, works of art many people with disgusted faces destinies – wrapped together soulmates never met each other

still we are spending this time in silence when all time will stop you think we’ll be content? still we are spending this time in silence

confession equals salvation experiments and human creation sosiopaths and bestsellers human suffering creates the thrillers

wars as a conclusion of nothing still arguing about the evolution living all as one wasn’t working they tried to find a final solution

still we are spending this time in silence when all time will stop you think we’ll be content? Here we are blending to this decadence Civilized methods of survaillance

THE SONG BY HEART

seven days see eye to eye feed mouth to mouth synchronised sighs If I grew strong would you watch me glow

seven days to look behind to peep inside to get it right would it be so wrong if I grew strong

The secret is for you to keep one soiled sheet lies in between Farewell to Mr. Daniels I know the song by heart

keep persistence on its knees hopes and dreams beyond the need procrastination often ends only in grinding teeth

rinse the burden off my back I’m wearing out until I crack suit yourself with any means to get you where you please

 

NO PERFECT PLAN

Burns, we have in common backfired means for release relapses mark out my way these days

Found, something familiar pride unites me to you my deeds are like empty words in your ears

No perfect plan in some situation it might sound like that like a perfect plan No perfect man in his heart he could seem like that like a perfect man

Show me a place with room for errors
Forget the one who thought he’d last forever Teach me a way out of the circle
Never mind the man who could not go further

Change, your ways and listen mould me into something new try to distance me from my past

Strength is what you spoke of but now I’ve come to realize this captive mind no more is at ease

SO MUCH BETTER

I was watching you ‘cause I could not find a place to stay watching you – and every movement that you made
I was watching you ‘cause I was not in a place to speak watching you – every waking moment of our time

anguish, bitterness and pain, they were all swept away
I ain’t coming back, this is so much better
waiting hours and lies to tell, they were hurting me like hell I ain’t coming back ‘cause now I know much better

so much better I ain’t coming back so much better It’s not worth all that

I left that behind See all this space
I left that behind Some things need to break

I was watching you with my mind on a leap of faith watching you – and unintentional fear of change
I was watching you and I fell off from the dream of security watching you – every waking moment of our time

anger, doubt and heartaches, they were far too much to take
I ain’t coming back, this is so much better
Loosing control and turning stones, going through it on my own I ain’t coming back, now I know much
