Track Name: Contemptible
In the reflection of false mirrors
Painting of paltry soul
How ironic your image looks
When you smile
There is nothing, nothing behind you!

Bright image, histrionic motions
Let`s go! Joking on a huge arena
We are now, who you are
A little human wearing a kilo of make-up

If you thought that I have no emotions
Let me show you life behind the stage
Sleepless nights, tears on pillow
If you don`t believe me
Just a little more and I`ll go insane

You are blocking the way to my asylum
I`m lost in the space of huge arena
I`m escaping the shining of spotlight
Don`t want to be humiliated again

Don`t try to change your direction
We`re looking your every step
Our unmoral hunger
Waiting for you to fall again

From performance to performance
coat of paint hides my pain
I don`t see the difference between life and stage
I`m the clown, no one who gave me a choice (to be someone else)
Even if I try to erase my mask

I don`t want to satisfy your hunger anymore
I`ll never play this game again
I`ve run out!
Goodbye desirous men who want to see me falling?
Goodbye! Go to Neverland!
I`ll forget your image the next day!
At this moment I feel that I can do something more

The sky drawn beneath
Now I can touch the Sun
Rays don`t burn my palms anymore
I destroyed your implicit faith

The sky drawn beneath
Now I can touch the Stars
Whose light will heal my scars
The last word against your laughter

Humanity left their eyes long ago
Savagery in their eyes doesn`t fade away
I`m not the one who can heal them
They cannot save their selves
Illusion of acme on someone’s fall
Lust for blood when someone is alive
I`ve run away from your intoxicated souls
Just hear my last Goodbyes!
I don`t care, that I am contemptible!
