Lights Out - NickGr (a lyric album)

Album description:
This one contains some of the darkest lyrics ever written. Some songs are personal, really close-to-heart, some are not. One thing i’ll reveal about this album: the idea came to mind in one of these moments of down…

Doom - intro instrumental

Insanity

Genre: nu-metal

Verse 1:
The night has come
Fear turns itself upon me
This is our crime: no one else to blame
Death stares from the heart of society
(Our world is doomed)

Pre-Chorus:
They spread war and death
Their megaphone makes people regress

Chorus 1:
Why have we turned away
Of our nature, killing it
Can’t we choose our own way?
When have we let the elite do it?

Verse 2:
People keep saying: "War is peace"
Getting our nation diseased
Television lies. feeding the beast
This can’t let longer, our souls hate it

Pre-Chorus:
They spread war and death

Their megaphone makes people regress
Chorus 2:
Society says that I’m insane
But they’ve forgotten the true way
They can feel no woe for our planet dying

Bridge(recitative)
The flow will eventually wash
All the money, the blood and the filth
That keep draining our nature
It will start from the back of our heads

{Guitar solo}

Pre-Chorus:
They spread war and death
Their megaphone makes people regress

Chorus:
Society says that I’m insane
But they’ve forgotten the true way
They can feel no woe for our planet dying
But I believe they will be free…
Break the chain and leave

Falling Into My Agony

Genre: hardcore

Chorus:
I’m falling into my agony
Death swallows me from the inside
Locked myself up in my fantasy
Running into my own lie

Verse I:
The world is broken in me
I can’t escape the silence
Once again I’m standing on my knees
Trying to escape the violence

Pre-chorus:
I’m locked up inside this cage and it just can’t be all the same
I’m screaming when I spill my blood in the name of vain

Chorus:
I’m falling into my agony
Death swallows me from the inside
Locked myself up in my fantasy
Running into my own lie

(screaming)
Into my own lie
Can’t see you!

Bridge:
I can barely hear you running , closing up yourself
And I just feel like choking and i cannot pretend
I’m slowly loosing you!

Chorus:
I’m falling into my agony
Death swallows me from the inside
Locked myself up in my fantasy
Running into my own lie
Falling into my own night!
I won’t make it to the light

(in a calm voice)
I won’t make it to the light

Step Off

Genre: nu-metal

Verse I:

I watch you going by
I cry but can’t pull off the mask
I stop and there’s no place to flight
Lost inside of the questions I ask

Pre-chorus:
Doomed by the darkness inside
There’s no way I can make it unwind

Chorus:
Standing on the crossroads of the dark
There’s nothing left behind
Trying to hide the pain in my larks
There’s nowhere left to hide
Disease of fear is crumbling my mind

Verse II:
Washed myself away into a cold sea
Of woe, cracking and suffocating me
I want the darkness to swallow me and leave no fear
There’s no way to break the mirror of tears

Pre-chorus
Doomed by the darkness inside
There’s no way I can make it unwind

Chorus:
Standing on the crossroads of the dark
There’s nothing left behind
Trying to hide the pain in my larks
There’s nowhere left to hide
Disease of fear is crumbling my mind

Bridge:
Left alone in the darkness of doom
Pushing my fingers into older wounds
Demons nailing my soul with pain
Crumbling into the void of vain

Chorus:
Standing on the crossroads of the dark
There’s nothing left behind
Trying to hide the pain in my larks
There’s nowhere left to hide
Disease of fear is crumbling my mind

When The Stars Fall

“… I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds”

Robert Oppenheimer
Genre: alternative

Verse I:
The fire of a thousand sins has lightened
We can’t stop, we missed the chance to predict nightmare
Now we want the time to stop running
But everything we had is colliding
It’s 10 minutes before the Judgement falls
Before we fall into the untold

Chorus 1:
I know I could’ve tried
But to myself I won’t lie
I’ll stay here and watch the stars fall
And all I feel now is cold

Verse II:
Don;t apologize - there’s no reason to
It’s not you who led us into this tomb
All of their chess plays now have no sense
As they face the Audit
They’ll have no chance

Chorus 2:
I know I could’ve tried
But to myself I won’t lie
I’ll stay here and watch the stars fall
And all I feel now is cold

So now I won’t run
I’ll wait till the black sun
Shines inside and outside of me
And then I’ll finally be free

[Keyboard/piano/giutar solo]

Chorus 2:
I know I could’ve tried
But to myself I won’t lie
I’ll stay here and watch the stars fall
And all I feel now is cold

So now I won’t run
I’ll wait till the black sun
Shines inside and outside of me
And then I’ll finally be free

I fear as the cloud forms
But it’s too late: I’m into the untold

Questions {interlude}

Can I leave the darkness behind?
Can i walk into the light again?
Shall I get it off my broken mind?
And will it all be in vain?

I’m sitting in the emptiness inside
Surrounded by the questions that i ask
Can’t search for the answers in my mind
But try to search for a light in the dark

Can I leave the darkness behind?
Can i walk into the light again?
Shall I get it off my broken mind?
And will it all be in vain?

Can I leave the darkness behind?
Can i walk into the light again?
Shall I get it off my broken mind?
And will it all be in vain?

Broken Mirror

Genre: nu-metal

Verse I:
So I fall again into the silence
Dropped myself into a self-to violence
Voice is creeping into my mind again
Saying this all will be in vain
Saying this is my fault and my pain
Saying I was the one who brought this down
I try to stop but I fall , can’t reach the ground
I bleed in my silent howl

Pre-chorus:
I shoot myself down
As I fall from the solid ground

Chorus 1:
There’s nothing left to run
(Your voice consumes me)
There’s no place for me to come
(Broken all my fantasies)
I try to think right but my doings are wrong

Verse II:
Another shot, another day
Mindless, walking into the streets of grey
There’s no choice
There’s no sun
There’s no way
I can’t imagine how i felt yesterday
When it was alright and I could hear you clear
Now It’s all ceasing and i feel no fear
But stepping off isn’t the right thing to do
As there’s no escape in the upcoming doom

Pre-chorus:
I shoot myself down
As I fall from the solid ground

Chorus 2:
There’s nothing left to run
(Your voice consumes me)
There’s no place for me to come
(Broken all my fantasies)
I’ve never ruined this shattering dome
I know this place I’ve thought i’d left behind
But there’s no way it lets my broken mind

Bridge:
As I can barely hear your voice
I’m brought down: have let myself no choice
I choke as I try to scream out to you
There’s no way for my soul to find it’s own dew

Chorus 2:
There’s nothing left to run
(Your voice consumes me)
There’s no place for me to come
(Broken all my fantasies)
I’ve never ruined this shattering dome
I know this place I’ve thought i’d left behind
But there’s no way it lets my broken mind

Desert

Genre: alternative
Chorus:
I’m picking up the shards
There’s nowhere left to run
I open up my scars
And tear them to the bone

Verse I:
I’m down and feel alone
Want to run and free
But I’m locked under the dome
Running into fantasies
Making my own casualty

Chorus 2:
I’m picking up the shards
There’s nowhere left to run
I open up my scars
And tear them to the bone
I’ve teared myself apart
Walking on the glass
But there’s no light in the dark
I’m covered by the dust

Verse II:
I see you again and remember the times
When it all was clear
Maybe this will comeback someday, sometime?
But all i know now is fear

Chorus 2:
I’m picking up the shards
There’s nowhere left to run
I open up my scars
And tear them to the bone
I’ve teared myself apart
Walking on the glass
But there’s no light in the dark
I’m covered by the dust

Bridge:
Digging my own grave under the sky
There’s no storm to wash out my mind
Driving into madness and the days of grey
Knowing that I’ve left no way
But maybe i could climb on the sun ray?

Chorus 2:
I’m picking up the shards
There’s nowhere left to run
I open up my scars
And tear them to the bone
I’ve teared myself apart
Walking on the glass
But there’s no light in the dark
I’m covered by the dust
