about

Composed of songs written between 2001 and 2004, as well as demos dating back from Paul and Marko's previous band Retina, "Forgive(n)" was originally released on the mp3.com website in 2003.

We like to consider it as an early attempt of making music together that somehow found its way to the public.

Track Name: Angel And The Beast
As I stare into space, you see my fall from grace.
A madness slowly takes me, is this to be my fate?
Like famine before the feast, I'm waking from my sleep.
It's time to make a choice, between the angel and the beast.

Tell me it isn't so, just feel the ebb and flow.
You madness slowly drowns me
I smile and let it go.

As day turns into night, and wrong takes place of right
I see your motive clear. My love gives way to spite.
I drank up all your tears, and fought to wipe your fears
But your illness, it kills me, And so the end is near.

Tell me it isn't so, just feel the ebb and flow.
You madness slowly drowns me
I smile and let it go.
Track Name: Das Licht
And so I woke, into the light.
To touch your face, it felt so bright.
But after light comes dark, and after laughter tears.
I ate my cake to swallow my fears.

I saw it dim, I saw it flicker.
I pulled the plug, to make it quicker.
In trying to give, I took it all.
Flew into the light, and now I fall.

I adore the light until it wanes
I got so close I burst into flames
I sought the light at every turn
I held you tight, until it burned.

In trying to give, I took it all.
Flew into the light, and now I fall.

I adore...

I adore the light until it wanes
I got so close I burst into flames
I sought the light at every turn
I held you tight, until it burned.
Track Name: Liebling (Du Bist Ausgezeichnet Version)
I cast her into the void with a glad heart.
She’ll never know the pain I felt from the very start.

I’d like to feel the rain, soaked through, once again.
I start to feel the tears, I remember only pain.

I turn to face the sun with a glad heart.
We never know when to run, until we fall apart.

I cast her into the void with a glad heart...
Track Name: Straight Down
I've done it now, don't ask me how.
I wonder why it always has to die.

Are we men or mice when we throw the dice?
Now my fate is bound, gonna go straight down.

Got my head up high, as I watch the sky
All I need is hope, and for my neck more rope.

Are we men or mice when we throw the dice?
Now my fate is bound, gonna go straight down.

We knew from the start, you'd rip out my heart.
So with my submission, I taste your derision.

The pain in my soul, can never be cured.
The voices in my head, never endured.

Are we men or mice when we throw the dice?
Now my fate is bound, gonna go straight down.
Track Name: Forgave
I just can't wash your taste away,
I taste you, night and day.
I try hard to close my eyes.
It helps ignore your lies.

I taste my tears again,
and now I need your rain.
And so, I forgive you now.
I pay the price, I know how.

I forgive you all the time, I just can't draw the line.
The truth will light the way
The rain will clean, or so they say.

A piece of me I cast aside.
Something hardens, deep inside.
I can't wash your taste away.
I feel your presence, night and day.

I forgive you all the time, I just can't draw the line.
The truth will light the way
The rain will clean, or so they say.

Sit back, enjoy the ride.
Pointless to try and hide.
I know you can't be found.
I listen hard, but there's no sound.
Track Name: She Says
She says, "Just let it" - She says, "Just let it hurt"
She says, "Just let it" - She says, "Just let it hurt"
I say, "I'm nervous" - She says, "you're perfect"
I say, "It'll hurt us" - She says, "just let it".

No words we're just dancing
Uncertain of what we're chancing
No chance of romancing
No touching, just glancing.

Can't talk, I just listen - Just look at how she glistens
Don't move, or people talk - don't stop just walk
I stare hard at her lips - Lips I must not ever kiss
My body, her fingertips - Contact, some bliss.

No words we're just dancing
Uncertain of what we're chancing
No chance of romancing
No touching, just glancing.

She says, "Just let it" - She says, "Just let it hurt".

Can't talk, I just listen - Just look at how she glistens
Don't move, or people talk - don't stop just walk
I stare hard at her lips - Lips I must not ever kiss
My body, her fingertips - Contact, some bliss.

She knows that she scares me - I can't breathe, just barely
Does she feel the hurting - That comes with all the flirting?
Then it happens, we're kissing - Now we know what we were missing
I say, "I'm nervous" - She says, "you're perfect".

No words we're just dancing
Uncertain of what we're chancing
No chance of romancing
No touching, just glancing.
Track Name: Ephedra (BDC Version)
I need the beat to hit me where it hurts!
I need the beat to keep me going on!
I need the beat to feed the fear that grows!
I need the beat to beat me, all night long!
Track Name: Wet Dream
I breathe your air, I taste your lips
I bite your kiss, your finger tips
I feel you close, I take your soul
Don't stop me now, so close to home

Your lips on mine, I'll push inside
You take my smile, I'll take your eyes
You hear me laugh, I hear you cry
I'll cut you up, you'll ask me "why..?"

Just ask me why.
I'll tell you why.

We know you would, I eat your sighs.
You give me blood, I'll give you lies.

Just give you lies.
Give me blood, I'll give you lies.

Pushing...
Rushing...
Crushing...
I breathe your air...
Track Name: The Fall
I saw you standing there, on your own.
I had to stare, if only I'd known.
I was so scared, I felt a fear.
Would you care when I was near?
I stared so hard, all I could do.
I couldn't get that close to you.

My hands were cold, my heart was pounding.
I felt so old, where I was standing.

You danced with grace, my feet are lead.
You touched my face,
my world stopped dead...

I need to talk, I need to cry.
You'll be the answer when I ask why.
Someone to hold until the light
when nights are cold, you'll do it right.

My hands were cold, my heart was pounding.
I felt so old, where I was standing.

I need to talk, I need to cry.
You'll be the answer when I ask why.
Someone to hold until the light
When nights are cold, you'll do it right.
A beating heart, a gentle hand
A place to make my final stand
To feel your lips, to touch your skin
To hear your heart, the life within
With sun in the sky, how can I fly
When my world stops dead?
Track Name: The Slightest Sound
Should we sleep, for a while?
Will you weep, or spit your bile?
Drench me like the rain,
Wash my tears away again.
I can't resist my only fate,
Why are you so easy to hate?
You lift me from the floor,
So easy to adore.

Tearing me down anew,
The same old thing you have to do.
I'm the one you really need,
Why do you want to make me bleed?
I know I'll fail your little test,
I feel you pulling at my flesh.
Your passion holds me like a storm.
I need your breath to keep me warm.
The slightest sound, can drag me down.
Your sweetest smile, like a distant isle.
You're the light in my dark.
But your shadow leaves its mark.

I'll give you my control,
Feel my pulse and taste my soul.
Your hands are cold, around my heart.
Slowly pulling me apart.

The slightest sound, can drag me down.
Your sweetest smile, like a distant isle.
You're the light in my dark.
But your shadow leaves its mark.

Take the place next to me,
I'll take your fears and make them cease.
I close my eyes, I need your kiss.
There's nothing more I need than this.
Track Name: Our Scars
She takes me down, into her world.
She takes my breath, my scary girl.
She licks me up and spits me out.
She takes it all, except my doubt.
She saw through me, my empty lies.
It took one smile to seize my eyes.
My body’s free but my minds a chain.
Tied to a dream till I see her again.

Taking chances and stealing glances.

She saw through me, my empty lies.
It took one smile to seize my eyes.
My body’s free but my minds a chain.
Tied to a dream till I see her again.
Far from eyes and the light of the sun.
To hurt a soul you don’t need a gun.
Feeling the rush, tasting the thrill.
Looking for an emotion that’s harder to kill.

Don’t need a reason, it’s all in the mind.
Look for a motive, just ask the blind.
Can’t hide the truth from her x-ray eyes.
Hunting for gold between her thighs.
I’m holding her down but I’m on the rack.
Her sighs in my ears, her claws in my back.
We like what we do, we know what we feel.
We live with our scars, they’re all that is real.

I’m holding her down but I’m on the rack.
Her sighs in my ears, her claws in my back.
We like what we do, we know what we feel.
We live with our scars, they’re all that is real...
