Lost in my mind and what do I see A face in the mirror, a mystery No one can help me in the dark of night Nowhere to go, no place to hide There is nothing like a cure There is no escape for me There is only one thing to do Dance and sing the song with me Ring-a-ring of roses A pocket full of poses We all fall down C-G Lost in a mirror, when will I be found Look for the answers in the underground There are lost the souls, banging on my wall I can close my eyes, but still hear their call I'm waiting for the black flag, come and get me Waiting for the dark night, to surround me Dance with me Sing, sing the song Then die Ring-a-ring of roses, A pocket full of poses We all fall down I'm waiting for the black death, come and take me Waiting for the plague to come and get me Dance with me Sing, sing the song Then die Ring-a-ring of roses, A pocket full of poses We all fall down

Bodiam 04:39
All at once The cold comes in I can sense something strange as if something happened here happended here as if something happend here But covered in mist and haze you can only wonder what The air seems heavy with sadness and feelings of loss As if something happened here I felt like icy fingers touching my arm But no one was there I'm all alone In Bodiam Are you and echo of the past I'm inside now Within these ruins of bygone times and I can feel The unease as if something happened here I felt like icy fingers touching my arm But no one was there I'm all alone In Bodiam Are you an echo of the past A lost soul that can not rest On top of the tower you appear Dressed in red and looking east The full moon casts no shadow The storm in your hair and torn gown You cry out loud As if something happened here Are you an echo of the past ? A lost soul that can not rest Never leaving from your post you will always be the ghost of Bodiam

She had one wish To marry the man she loved On the day of the wedding In the church She waited endlessly in vain In front of the alter When she heard the news She couldn't believe it Jim had left town just before the bells And fallen in love with someone else Alice stood there Only whispering You're mine she said If not in this life Than in the next Remember my words You're mine Alice, looking lovely in her long white dress And soft wedding veil Turned pale, broke her heart And was dead before she hit the floor Alice was buried in the churchyard Still dressed in white You're mine she said If not in this world than in the next Remember my words You're mine Years later Jim's father past away When he went to see the grave He saw something rising Up from a grassy mound Only yards away from him A figure in a long white gown Moving towards him The wind whispering You're mine He shook and turned pale And was dead before he hit the ground You can still hear the wind whispering You're mine it said If not in this world But in the next Remember my words You're mine In Echoland

He thought he was clever Knew how to trick the people believing he could talk to ghosts He was so good at it Even made it with a show on tv And made lots of money telling people that their beloved ones are in heaven and there is nothing fear Never ever once he saw a ghost But that was not what mattered To greed on the loss and pain of others and not care about their feelings He could afford himself to buy a big old house and live in luxury He thought he was clever Misleading people pays after all Can you see my hand? Can you help me ? Can you finally lay my soul to rest ? But he was blind And he was deaf But what he didn't know, this house was haunted A sanctuary for the ones that didn't pass through And one night he made his first encounter But he thought his mind played tricks on him Can you see my hand ? Can you help me ? Can you finally lay my soul to rest ? But he was blind And he was deaf Then slowly but surely the voices were all around Until finally the men in white came in and took for the rest of his life to the asylum at least he could speak with ghosts after all

Nothing to forgive Nothing to forget Nothing to remember Nothing to regret Nothing I can feel Nothing I can say Nothing I can touch now Nowhere I can stray And all I do is haunt you There's nothing to fear Nothing left to love See me Nothing left to lose Feel me Nothing left to leave behind Touch me Nothing left to choose And there is nothing I can do the make this go away It's not easy to be a ghost anyway Nowhere left to go Heal me Nowhere left to run Love me Nowhere I can wander Help me Hiding from the sun Nowhere in this house Forgive me Nowhere in this town Forget me Nowhere in the whole world Remember me No tears left to drown And all I do is haunt you There's nothing to fear And there is nothing I can do the make this go away It's not easy to be a ghost anyway And all I do is haunt you There's nothing to fear Nothing to forgive Nothing to forget Nothing to remember There nothing to fear

I like to walk in the night Feel the darkness around me Being all on my own And never hearing a sound That's when I feel the rain And the wind in my hair And even when it is cold I find I don't really care 'cause everything's black where there is light there is violence I'd rather stay here outside Only surrounded by silence That's when I'm me That's when I write About the things you said And the tears I cried But when the morning comes That's when I realise I need you close by me It is so hard to describe But when I open my eyes And look for love to be found I am searching in vain You are nowhere around Just a letter to me Saying I live the day But if you choose the night I can no longer stay So now I'm alone And not only at night Just the silence in me and the poems to write

It's been almost a week now I hardly know you I know I miss you Not a day goes by Without thinking of you Not a night goes by Without dreaming Do you feel the same Do you feel a hurting inside Like I feel the pain 'til there's only love I can see you only at night But I can't touch you I'll be kissing the thin cold air I'm living a dream I'm in love with a ghost Do you feel the same Do you feel a hurting inside Like I feel the pain 'til there's only love In love with a ghost Never ever will I kiss you Never ever will I fuck Never ever I touch you Never ever I hug Never ever I kiss you Never ever I fuck Never ever I touch you guess you could say I'm out of luck

Lust 05:58
Forgive me Father, For I have sinned ! I have sinned ! in lust in lust Due to our fallen nature, we will have to deal with lust until we die The temptation to lust will come in many forms And when lustful thoughts become part of us we feel like prisoners to those controlling desires Lust grows fast in the garden of pleasure We know our weaknesses and what triggers them. But we can be free !!! Please forgive us and cleanse us from our sin. And please replace our lustful desires with Your desires for our lives, so that we can glorify You in everything we do. This is the law, for sin always gives birth to death. 2x This is the law this is my sin skin to skin the longing the craving the game we play the night you stay the need the hunger Tell me why I should give in When this is the best of all sins Tell me why should I break this spell For now I'm in heaven and in hell for lust is my only desire melts the ice, sets me on fire hear my words, you know it’s true Do you feel lust the way I do ? Forgive my Father For I will sin !!! Our bodies, skin to skin confess now or you’ll be damned Tell me why is this a sin ? there’s absolution in the end For lust is the pleasure I want It's the only ghost I haunt Temptations are all I need They are my drugs, they give me speed I don't need deliverance cause for me it makes no sense ! it makes no sense! Forgive my Father For I will sin !!!

There were traces of mascare around her eye This at times she would use as an alibi And I can't think of anyone who knows her name But I don't want to play the waiting game Thoughts of romance filled my head As I listened to all the lies she said "Could you ever fill the void in my heart" Were het very words right from the start She said "Love is for dreamers I'll take you away To the land of believers And some other day When we are together Who else can you choose In the waiting game You can only loose" There were traces of blood around her lips As she touches me gently with her fingertips She knows as the best how to fake a smile And I am in heaven At least for a while She said "Love is for players And you think that you're one But this game is mine You never could have one When we are together Who else can you choose In the waiting game You can only loose"

It all began a year ago I heard the voices in rewind At first I thought I'd lost my mind Slowly I came to realise The whispers I heard in my head Were messages from the undead Why am I chosen by this spook Is it the way I speak or look I really don't have a clue But no one else can hear her voice It seems to me that I'm her choice And I don't know what to do It's you ! If only I could stop here now This is not where the story ends The ghost invited all her friends And they never went away There's no more silence in my head A thousand voices talk instead And I can't talk to anyone To make this nightmare come undone I'm too afraid they lock me up Can't see the doctor anymore I leave the house through my backdoor And I don't know what to do It's you ! There is no one who can see me There is no one who can feel me There is no one who can touch me There is no one There is no one who can heal me There is no one who believes me There is no one who can help me There is no one It's you !

You haunt my house late at night I hear the footsteps in the dark The screams that tear the silence apart and keeping me awake at night left my sleeping hours out of sight White noise splattered through the room Sounds from disconnected machines Lights flashing and candles suddenly burn Fading out when I look away Fading like me, if I plan to stay You are my little ghost You haunt my dreams Keeping me awake at night left my senses out of sight All these years you've haunted my house But when you’re gone I miss you And silence is all that's left for me The emptiness I can’t avoid Makes me slowly paranoid This silence kept me from dreaming Now I long for white noise and screaming I miss the presence of you around Where are you ..... now Where are you You are my little ghost You haunt my dreams Keeping me awake at night left my senses out of sight

You came into our lives Made our family complete Were a gift of unknown value We love to have you around And wouldn’t want to miss you But you almost slipped away My ghost Never were we more frightened Then during this dinnertime How suddenly a life Can turn around and fade away Gasping for air Unable to breath something blocked your airways We had to act No panic Don’t want you to be my ghost Don’t want you to leave me I want to hold you close And want you to live forever Your brother screaming Frightened for your life Regretting all the fights you've had Now wants you to fight to survive The doctor came by car living only blocks away Helicopter in the air The lady with the lamp at our front door Don’t want you to be my ghost Don’t want you to leave me I want to hold you close And want you to live forever We all together saved you And love you even more Promise to outlive us And never shock us anymore My ghost Don't leave me Hold me close forever

Since you been gone I've been all alone A silent telephone I've got nowhere to go And you haunt me at night Since you been gone Since you been gone It's so quite here It feels so cold No one has hold me tight I can't sleep at night Since you been gone I walk the streets trying to find you there But with eyes closed I see you everywhere I've started talking to myself again I've heard the whispers every now and then Since you been gone Since you been gone The countless times I've seen your face when you're not there The endless nights I've waited, waited in despair Of all the colours I know I am feeling blue There was a time when there was no one else but you But now you're gone gone Since you been gone I've been all alone So alone I've got nowhere to go Where can I go? It's so quite here So quite So alone And I can't sleep at night
