about

16 minutes of madness,
Created over the course of seven years.
For you,
All for none.

--!-- SHIPWRECK --!-- KARTOUM --!--

lyrics

Sailed the seven seas
And preyed treasures on vengeance
Under deck they hid
Patrons of resentments

Bound to be your compass
Needles point at your grave
Chained there is no way back
For your sins you never regret

Our sails will show the way
To your failure
Close yet far away
Stitches of their tailors

Shut your mouth you're fake
Hollow shell made of clay
With a sword in mouth waiting
For a chance to betray on me

Went the long way down
And preached it's wonders, lies
Kept beneath the ground
You're severed from your gain's price

So chitter back on land and
Boast as if your great (as long you can!)
Scared won't say you're tasteless
Distant off the sea's face

No will to reach the destinated
Patient stay to rob the desecrated
All blind to feel your heart right
Ever in anger you favor flight

And now you're free to hang
Upside down as it's meant
Pendulous your skin teared
Draping our ship's sails

Seems like them lost treasury keys
Were in your own hands
Evil seems embellishing
So does the rest feel
Kept this desperate last way out

Take a glance out of your sight
Try to fly like time
Change this meaningless direction
Closer to the inside

Tell me how it feels
Bleeding off the skies high
Your inner life's displayed
A lair for lies and prejudice

Sown the seed of hatred
Of broken mirrors you will fail
Future plans past
Visions that you saw didn't last

Figurative, vain
And literally dead meat
Shattered as you wished
Gone in the MAELSTROM!

The winds will carry salt
Swallows, crows, and an albatross
The kraken tear you down
Sharks and cancers guts out

Sold sanity, lost your face
Left a trace on your reflection
But not on your self

Take a glance out of your sight
Try to fly like time
Change this meaningless direction
Closer to the inside

Ask the siren, ask the sea
Ask your tendency
Silenced by illusions
Closed eyes, nosebleed

Insist rules
Initiative down
Changing nothing
Divisible guilt
Invisible chains
All for none

Lodges for the high
Spades for the low
Crave, crawl, crave more

Down to sea depth's ground!

Last remains
This violent sleep
Screams of silence
Divisable guilt
Invisible chains
Altar of pain

Seems like life means
To trust instincts
To choose directions
Seems like these affections
Keep a link alive
Keep this silent connection

Take a glance out of your sight
Try to fly like time
Change this meaningless direction
Closer to the inside

Ask the siren, ask the sea
Ask your tendency
Silenced by illusions
Closed eyes, nosebleed
