forgotten Belgium

Conceived in solitude whilst staring silently at the wall of an attic.

Track Name: sounds of a striking clock
i’m too afraid, afraid to see,
to see the truth that defines me
mirrors show what might have been
the skin-deep smiles are lost within

before dawn, a woman crawls like a vision in my sleep
her purpose unclear
distorted reflections of an ending yet to come
paralyse the soul, dazed and numb

i wake up to the sounds of a striking clock
dreadful tones hit me like a rock
you are near me, lead the way
name the price, ‘cause i don’t want to stay

no, i don’t want to stay…
take me away

the curtain falls, she comes forth and whispers in my ear
'as you wish, look away and don't fear
it's artistic redemption, your body left behind
for eyes unfolding blind'
Track Name: destiny
the distance towards destiny
is the path every human walks
not knowing the short-cuts are blocked
and the side-roads are off

as protagonists of our lives
we have been given a choice
whether to succumb or survive

this inevitable course of events
is the fruit of the random choices we make
as living beings on this earth
for choosing our own sake

as protagonists of our lives
we have been given a choice
whether to succumb or survive

consider suicide,
according to one's state of mind;
a cowardly act or a short-cut found
Track Name: forgotten
a sight, so beautiful it makes me dream
of places only my mind can reach

aside; my thoughts, ideas as fragile as they seem
my utopia, no one is authorized to feel

at last, inner balance, i am free
free from the burden called life

i close my eyes, this isn't a dream
any moment now, i'm sure

the silence begotten
once forsaken and now
forgotten
