Track Name: In The Twilight Hours
I'm called Joachim de Tristero
Perhaps a madman, perhaps a honest hero
I fashionned a livery of black symbolizing
The night, the night, the exile

And I styled myself El Descheredado, The Dishenerited
This secund America, reflecting poverty
Undergroud world, intellectual dead-end
I'll give a sacred dimension to your existence

Latent content of loneliness can't compete in its base
Has your walk into the sea something to do with it?

The Whitechapel Edition is hardly to be trusted
That version is corrupt, some kind of virus entered it
True paranoia or real Tristero
In the twilight hours, all is ringing like an hoax

Get along with me
Psychological disease
Another tragedy
And if someday you reckon me
Time will lose its basic meaning

Endless pursuit of happiness, & W.A.S.T.E. & D.E.A.T.H.
Retinal persistence, shining the darkness

Alone in your head, still under rapid eye movement
Trying in vain to contain the madness of your brain
I can't fill the whole since you got cold
Pain, treshold, no one to hear your desperate calls

Get along with me
Psychological disease
Another tragedy
And if someday you reckon me
Time will lose its basic meaning
You will wake, muted late at night
Intruder of, intruder of your own mind
____
Track Name: D.E.A.T.H.
Another shoot pierced the silence
Dunno who got the ticket, it's just nonsense
In a while, I'll be better
In a while, emerging the blur
But for the moment, forget I've seen Death
Yep 't will be alright, but for how long left?

It's no use to lose my hold
It's not time to, it's not time to fall
But I'm falling
The next warning, I know, will ease my body

Lot died on the way, are they to blame?
After all, they knew the game
They laid down their hands
Mc Vries seems to hold tight
Stebbins is in tempered-steel
I guess I don't yearn for Death
Where comes that desire of living from?

Acclamation of the crowd
It's no use to, it's no use to call
But I'm calling
For help, can't you see we're all dying !!...
Pearson, Parker, and Baker, Olson
All dead, all dead !!

Mc Vries retires
Only stay Steb & I
God-damned crowd acclaim
Yet I lose my only last friend
A walk along that tunnel
But oddly I know it's not hell
They're all here, waiting for me
The long walk is nearly beginning
____
Track Name: Queer Streak
Have a mental suffering
You couldn't have stopped it
Is it a phoebia, a recurrent tendancy ?
Disease me, slightly
I'm an easy prey for your spirit
I loved the way you shoot me down
My little sister I've never had

My characters, my problems
You're my good presage
Maybe we could dive hands in hands
Forlorn hope, breach in fault
What I supposed was to be lost
I loved the way you shoot me down
My little sister I've never had

My heart is still bleeding
But it doesn't mean nothing
I'm diving, I am blinding
You haunted the most frustrated of my dreams
My little sister, my Queer Streak
I'm diving, I am blinding

Have a mental suffering (four times)
But here it comes, I'm just an orphan
Dancing on a parade
Unable to forget your smell
Are you dead? Are you far?
Are you just some other star
Cold shivers, sharp my spine
I loved the way you shoot me down
My little sister I've never had

My heart is still bleeding
Did you ever see something
I'm diving, I am blinding
Idleness, only that word remains
On your grave, the silence is rest

I've never had
My sister I've never had
I have never had

Track Name: Guinea Pig
My name is Charly Gordon
I used to work at the bakery Donner
All my life I've wanted to be clever
I go to lessons for retarded persons
It's very hard the be brainy
I forget a lot when I learn things

Dr. Strauss and Professor Nemur
Say they're gonna use for an experiment
To increase my intelligence quotient
Soon I'll be able to defeat Algernon
Wish it will work then I'll
Clever as everybody is

My mummy would be so proud of me
I realize she actually didn't love me
Help me please
I have never asked my being a guinea pig

Yesterday I left the hospital
I don't know if I am another man
Have to do the best that I can
To store up millions of details

My friends at the bakery seem to be afraid
To notice their Charly isn't the same
I developed a super brain
Years turned into days
I fidget, what an heroic deed

Now I'm brought in medical meetings
Expected my science to exhibit
Recollections from the past
Avoid me to sleep at night
It goes too far, it reopens scars
Lost in some part of my brain
Lost somewhere, anywhere

Last night I didn't remember where I lived
I have the feeling that this already happened to me
I know he's here, him the former Charly
Lurking within me, waiting for my dying

My name is Charly Gordon
I'm still working at the bakery Donner
I know what happens to me
But there's nothing to do, to do with me
And if you get the chance
Put some flowers on Alergnon's grave
Track Name: Crystal Clear
It's been long cold winters
Thousands years or maybe just a secund
Drifting thru the past
After having spent so much time
After having looked forward
Changes are required
Sometimes we met up & down
Just as the darkness filled the whole

Years of growth, millenium faults
Atomic fallouts, chloroformed environment
But we don't weigh much
How credible are our words?
Maybe you can see us as simple troublemakers
Sometimes we met up & down
Just as the darkness filled the whole

Now it's crystal clear to we
D'you think we're crazy
Whatever may the distance be
One of these years
You'll join the struggle against them

Cancel the prescritions
Switch off the drip-feeding
But you won't fob us off with bullshits
Shrink, we're about to win
Sometimes we met up & down
Just as darkness filled the whole

Now it's crystal clear to we
D'you think we're crazy
Whatever may the distance be
One of these years
You'll join the struggle against them
Track Name: Outside In Cold
This pale reflection isn't mine
Cynic deadlocked blind
I know exactly where's my mind
Livid flesh, recurrent nightmare
I didn't act, I just sustained
Control a smidgen of yourself

Inside out, I'm so cold
Let's turn to the next generation
Outside in, you're so close to me
I'll fight, without you

Rain streaming on the pavement
Blood running out the crying walls
Tortured souls need shields of love
4,5,6, you're outside in
And yet you're not so close to me
2,3,4, you're inside out
I will fight without you

Remember all the gore
Outside in cold
And now you're gone

I'm going to count up to 10
Then you'll wake up & forget
The man in black takes the road again
Turn it upside down as wishes your soul
But mind the Seventh Floor
Turn it downside up, if you're able
But I doubt

There's no damage
But watch the cage
Do never contain your rage
There's no damage
But watch the cage

Remember all the gore
Outside in cold
You're fucking with my head
____
Track Name: W.A.S.T.E.
Retroactive conscious-
Nestling close to senseless pain-
Full network of neuralgic centers ente-
Ring like a bell-
Yache, elated with sleeplessness

Saturation, exhaustion
Weariness, it's a mess
Emergence of parties
It's an emergency
15% minds disconnected

Failure to succ-
Esperanza de los mayor dias
I'm waiting, you're waiting, but they're lying

Who the fuck was that girleen?
Narcotics were another dealing, yestreen
Anyway, I'm tired enough, to feel it

Radio-active power-ty
Party-ficiali-
Till darkness ran thru your
Vain's the day when we first met
Crash, trash, trust
To dust, the flesh shall return

Failure to succ-
Espérance de jours meilleurs
I'm waiting, you're waiting, but they're lying

Who the fuck was that girleen?
Narcotics were another dealing, yestreen
Anyway, I'm tired enough to feel it

And I'm tired enough to feel it
Let it flow, let it, flow in it
Truly awaiting Tristero's Empire
Let it flow, someday
We'll feel better
____
Track Name: Grim Reaper's Laugh
Another life has gone
To blank everything out
How could I get this way
Something is missing
Something is disturbing
Screeching cold blade, seering flesh again

Watching out for Grim Reaper's Laugh
Feel its presence along the corridor
Shall it still follow me?
Shall it allow me to breath?
Something worse having
Your view is not worth a lot to me

Gotta face in silence
But it just ain't right
I stare, all vanished like a dance
But it just ain't right
Maybe you know I'm too fragile
But I care 'bout the color of the night
I guess I do too much
But now it's pretty much different
Endorphin makes its work
It doesn't make sense when you're ready to burn

Cars crashing on a tree
But maybe you're a lot like me
