Let’s wait for the Big Rip in silence There’s no goal or faith to stop the end. It’s silence. The Big Freeze will come whispering gently There’s hope but not for us*, just silence. *quote attributed to Franz Kafka

Please me , I’m your answer Could you please stop this nonsense? I’m just trying to believe in something Feel me, I’m the only one Could you please make lights even brighter? Burn my eyes with strobes and flashes You don’t need eyes while you’re sleeping Could you please erase my hard disK? I just need to rest from who I am There’s a way to make it hurt Could you please stop this nonsense, I’m just trying to believe in something There’s a way to make it hurt Could you please erase my hard disk, I just need to rest from who I am There’s a way to make it hurt Now I know that you know how to make me greater than the others There’s a way to make you hurt Now I want you to give me power There’s a way to make it There´s a way to make it hurt Now I know

The future is here I don’t belong I don’t believe In this new world Where are the flying cars they promised? Yeah, it’ coming Like a movie Yeah it’s coming Before sundown Yes, it’s coming, it’s a movie Yeah it’s coming The future is here I don’t belong I don’t believe In this new world Where are the flying cars they promised? Yeah, it’ coming Like a movie Yeah it’s coming Before sundown Yes, it’s coming, It’s a movie Yeah it’s coming The future is here I don’t belong I don’t believe In this new world

Any rustle Will disrupt this dream Anything will turn sundown Into darkness It’s time Any hustle Like a beating Have you heard your inside downs? Like a string? It’s time And i don’t know where to go And i don’t know what to do And i don’t know where to go I don’t know what to do My secrets are gone I only see suffering Here everything’s coming back, so… Here, patch your rags Find your will Rich soil Settle down It’s time But i dont know what to do I dont know where to go And i dont know what to do I dont know where to go And i dont know what to do I dont know where to go And i dont know what to do

Set on fire Every creature Like your old gods Left stories Set in flames Your beliefs Every angel Broke a trumpet to avoid the fire Like burning signs on pages Words have fallen to pieces A secret sound is glittering It’s lying to you The preacher’s away “I’m your new master “. he said “They lied to everyone” New murks, trees and dawns All bodies will transform into waters And sinners Will turn to sound I’s a lie They lied They are lying They will lie It’s a lie Burn papers Buy data Invoke thunders To keep safe yout very own fictions Your Word is a lie Your faith is a lie Your comfort is a lie Your life is a lie Your love is a lie Your kindness is a lie Your ease is a lie Your death is a lie

I can hear the sound of war With its trumpets and its big drums It is banging my head Every muscle is ready for the frey Is this roar only in my mind? Is it like thunder without clouds? There’s no King to kill I’m the only enemy to fight I can feel my inner water boiling That steamy voice whispering “Take your helmet, take your spear This battle’s at hand, don’t you hear?” Is this undertone only in my mind? Either way I’ll lose if I try There’s no throne to siege There’s no enemy to fight This pain is all we’ve got This pain is all we’ve got This pain is all we’ve got This pain is all we’ve got This pain is all I’ve got

We won’t die We’ll be light We were fear Now it’s gone This is the end, again But we won’t die Death is not enough To kill all this light/life *lyrics inspired in the titles of the photos of Silvia Grav
