lyrics

[Verse]
I woke up in my bed
In the middle of emptiness
There was only a desert
And leftovers of my home
But something strokes me
Behind a corner of damaged wall
I could feel and hear it
It throbbed like an echo in my head

Leave me – never
Help me – you´re the sinner
Voices – here we are
Despair – you deserve
Leave me – never
Help me – you´re the sinner
Voices – here we are
Kill me – not yet

[Chorus]
They came only for me
What could I’ve done
They’ve tried to break
The peace in my mind
Those voices told me:
“run away through the desert ruins
And don´t look behind your back”
This way they were still with me

[Verse]
“I am your son, so why did I die?”
Running from my stranger son
I tried to find some place to hide
Family demons waited in the back
It felt hard to slow down
In front of my eyes from the sand
Bars grew up and grabbed my hands
I saw Shadow bearing my dead son
But there´s no time because

[Chorus]
They came only for me
What could I’ve done
They’ve tried to break
The peace in my mind
Those voices told me:
“run away through the desert ruins
And don´t look behind your back”
This way they were still with me

I felt a hand
On my shoulder
While bars were transforming
Into grains of sand
Everything is flying around me
Beings are just disappearing
Now every fuckin´ misery
Is worse a thousand times

I am sitting in a corner of a cell
And realizing that I was that shadow
I feel anxious again
My family is buried and I am the sinner
I am crying there with blood on my hands
Contemplating ´bout my past
When I will commit a suicide
Who will be responsible for my life
