Loathe! 03:01
LOATHE! You know I've been right here before On my knees begging at your door Your eyes - On me So full of misery Still keep me coming back for more Help me - Understand Help me! Caught in the crossfire once again I can't remember where or when I felt - The shame You've cast on me the blame In every single way you can Help me - Understand Help me! I'm bent and broken 'cause of you Can't find the words to see this through Your words are cutting through my soul All my self-loathing born anew Feels like I'm floating in thin air I'm at the point where I don't care I know no matter where I go The shame of you is always there

MAN IN THE MIRROR Just one look in the mirror Reflecting all that could be My own face full of contempt Staring back at me, Back at me I used to have my ambition Now I'm wondering why A big fat lie in a suit and tie Is replacing me, Replacing me Deep down I know the future holds my destiny And I'm walking the thin line between fantasy and what is real Just take my hand and lead me through, I'll keep you safe You must leave it all behind The man in the mirror What's true in the long run What's right and what's wrong History shows that nobody knows If you really see, you're truly free Just one look in the mirror Reflecting all that could be A big fat lie in a suit and tie Staring back at me, back at me Deep down I know the future holds my destiny And I'm walking the thin line between fantasy and what is real Just take my hand and lead me through, I'll keep you safe You must leave it all behind The man in the mirror Just one look in the mirror Reflecting all that could be Deep down I know the future holds my destiny And I'm walking the thin line between fantasy and what is real Just take my hand and lead me through, I'll keep you safe You must leave it all behind The man in the mirror

Bittersweet 03:47
BITTERSWEET Lift me up and let me go Fade away and let it show In the brilliant summerhaze By your beauty and your grace Endless waters flowing sweet Fresh new start, but so complete Lift me up and let me down Left unturned I turn around Just a distant memory Another you another me Fill the emptiness inside Never ending joy for life A head so crowded I could cry From the bottom of my soul Try to give, and give my all Just a distant memory Another you another me Fill the emptiness inside Oh how bittersweet the taste Of your sweat upon my skin By your endless, endless grace I shy away, you pull me in Unexpected, yet so sweet Sweep me senseless of my feet As I stare into your soul Endless, dark and empty hole Just a distant memory Another you another me Fill the emptiness inside

POETRY IN PAIN Stranded on an empty shore Washed up, wasted as my mind You gave me all, but I want more Tangled in my foolish pride And you mend my broken soul Only you... And you make me feel whole You Left alone in my own shame Crawling emptiness inside Feel the poetry in pain Nothing left for me to hide And you mend my broken mind Only you... What I've lost I know you'll find You You make me feel alive You mend my broken pride You help me make it through Only you... All the pain I felt before All the agony inside All that was, is here no more Peace reflected in your eye And you mend my broken heart Only you... The thought of you when we're apart You

ANOTHER TWISTED DREAM I stare into your eyes A window to your broken soul Through perfect shades of gray Your colors still shine through So blinding to behold A broken memory - Another twisted dream I'll give you all I can I can't carry you through So empty and afraid And with your every word Your memories unfold You're trapped inside your mind Deep in your eyes I see - The pain is real A broken memory - Another twisted dream I stare into your eyes A window to your broken soul I know the pain you feel This pain is yours and yours alone A broken memory - Another twisted dream Through perfect shades of gray...

CRACKS A SMILE Waiting, waiting for you Watching your every move See you as you stagger on Knowing, soon we'll be one Feel your body getting weak As your mind is soaring high You inject me in your veins Death cracks a smile Feeling the warmth in your vein Calming, negating all pain Inviting you to join in Running a race you can't win Feel your body getting weak As your mind is soaring high You inject me in your veins Death cracks a smile See me, I feel you go numb Muted, deaf, blind and dumb Reality dawns for a while You're watching as death cracks a smile Feel your body getting weak As your mind is soaring high You inject me in your veins I'll drive you insane Feel your mind getting weak As your body's soaring high Feel the noose around your neck Death cracks a smile
7.
GIFT OF FAITH You fall and I catch you That's how it has been Unknowing I let you Suffer for my sins A given promise meant to break Another soul caught in your web What's left is clearly yours to take A gift of faith is all I get As the fog grows thicker As you fade away I'm standing beside you Leading you astray A given promise meant to break Another soul caught in your web What's left is clearly yours to take A gift of faith is all I get

TRUTH AWAKING A creature of habit - Predictable soul - So simple and true Asking for nothing - But giving her all - To carry you through You know the hands of time They've treated her ungently You can see it in her face So soft and so gentle - Her hands used to be - Her velvet like touch So open and giving - Forthcoming and free - Her eyes full of trust All the colors of the sky Turning black in her mind's eye Her dreams slowly fade to gray She lifts her gaze up to the sky, suddenly she sees All that ever was before, what will ever be All those prayers left unheard, write her destiny Fight the demons in her head, suddenly she's free A creature of habit - Predictable soul - So simple and true So used to obeying - Used to being told - What to think and do A life not worth living - She's locked in her chains - Provided by faith The words of the holy - By ignorance bent - And twisted by greed Open up your eyes Feel the truth awaking Feel it building up inside She lifts her gaze up to the sky, suddenly she sees All that ever was before, what will ever be All those prayers left unheard, write her destiny Fight the demons in her head, suddenly she's free

PULL MY TRIGGER Feel the fear inside you swell with every scream Press the barrel of my gun against your skin Take my aim and slowly press against your head Feel my hatred for you slowly running red I feel you shivering inside I see fear in your eyes I smell the panic on your skin I pull my trigger Broken, feeling of humanity in me Left with a twisted little dream of being free Knowing nothing's ever gonna bring you back Close my eyes my mind is riddled with regret I feel you shivering inside I see fear in your eyes I smell the panic on your skin I pull my trigger Feel I can't go on with all this pain inside Dreams of the dead and lifeless blackness of your eyes I feel the shivering inside I see death in your eyes I smell the panic on my skin I pull my trigger

A MILLION LITTLE PIECES A million little pieces lying on the floor A broken soul inside, that just won't fit no more Stuck between our destiny and what is real A million little reasons to break away from you A million little problems, a million little truths Stuck between our destiny and what is real A lost and lonely mind, reflected in your eye I've asked for your forgiveness and given mine to you A million little pieces are burning through and through Stuck between our destiny and what is real A lost and lonely mind, reflected in your eye

about

Collective Reykjavík, Iceland

Collective is a 'thinktank' of musicians with extremely diverse backgrounds, from metal to ambient to jazz, these guys have pretty much been all over.
