about

Just some tracks that have been created between 2007 and 2009, but have never really been finished until now. So basically, in the same time I wrote most of the tracks for "The Great Pretending". In 2013, I finally wrote lyrics for the tracks that had none yet, recorded all of them and did a bit of additional production.

Due to this fact, this EP should be regarded as a part of a trilogy including
"The Great Pretending", "The Great Deception" and this very release, "The Remaining Fallacies".

That's it. So, please don't expect those tracks to sound much different from what you've heard on the latest album. Actual new tracks are in the making... :-)

Track Name: We Try To Fail
if we just try to fail
will we succeed?

we will always be here
and we will always fail

with every step on our bleeding feet
we will regret our words and deeds
this whole thing fails before it begins
so we go on and try to fail

we copy and paste our own mistakes
adrift in this pattern called life
where all the good things seem to be hiding
while all the bad things are colliding

there's nothing that could take our unrest away
we are living our lives to no avail
but we will go on trying day by day
because we have the ability to fail

we copy and paste our own mistakes
adrift in this pattern called life
where all the good things seem to be hiding
while all the bad things are colliding
Track Name: My Head Is Full Of Ghosts
empty faces all around
empty lives that keep me bound
my head is full of ghosts
my head is full of ghosts

you are not here
you have never been there
and the worst thing is
that you don't even care

after all the things I've seen
I can finally say
nothing's like it should have been
and I'm not here to stay
after all the things I've seen
I'd like to say
the world has turned to gray
but it has always been this way

now it seems
things have come to an end
I've lost this game
I've lost my name
my whole identity
I am not who I thought I'd be

and in case I break, just throw me away
I can't be fixed, I am astray
and in case I break, don't contemplate
to mend, to eliminate - 'cause this is the end

after all the things I've seen
I can finally say
nothing's like it should have been
and I'm not here to stay
after all the things I've seen
I'd like to say
the world has turned to gray
but it has always been this way

the world hasn't turned to gray
it has always been this way
nothing's like it should have been
and I'm not here to stay
Track Name: Living On The Surface
what is this life like...?
what does it feel like...?
what is this life like...?
what does it really yield..?

all your stories, all your lies
accumulate, they summarize
they start to bleed out of my ears
out of my nose, out of my eyes

superficial friendships and a dirty grin
and you try to hide the next little sin
a hundred hugs and a thousand faked smiles
carry you away one thousand miles

you are living on the surface
you refuse to see the darkness below
your pretty face in disgrace
you can't understand the anger you evoke

what is this life like you're living on the surface
what does it feel like to celebrate this affection
what is this life like you're living on the surface
what does it really yield, this superficial entity

underneath your exterior you might have to admit
that you don't really give a shit
you're on the run from your own disgrace
don't let anyone come so close to see your true face
Track Name: Suffering In The Brightest Light
you plan to live your life the wrong way
you ruin your life intentionally, all day
you amass your pain to show it to the world
searching for the brightest light to present your hurt

yesterday was gruesome but today is just worse
this is your life till now, from birth
your problems seem to increase every day
but the truth is: you don't want them to go away

you're suffering in the brightest light
smash a mirror to reflect your pain a thousand times
you're suffering in the brightest light
everyone can see your pain, this makes you feel alright

every day is such a mess
and every day you seem to feel less
every day you seem to cry louder
and every day you seem to die harder

you're searching for the brightest light
to present your suffering
you're standing in the brightest light
and it's scorching you

wake up! now! WAKE UP NOW!
Track Name: Enemy: Reality
you're so busy ruining your life
the truth has gone astray
you're shifting reality away
so far away

you're locked-in in your self-created cages
[you're caught in delusions for ages]
your life, destroyed at various stages
[you don't look back, you just turn the pages]

you're so busy ruining your life
you celebrate it day by day
you're shifting reality away
so far away

locked in and caught - you can't look back

and in the blink of an eye
this pale shadow
of what you used to be
is fading away

you're locked-in in your self-created cages
[you're caught in delusions for ages]
your life, destroyed at various stages
[you don't look back, you just turn the pages]

the world around you will not change
[no matter wherewith you blow your mind]
the world will not adjust with you
[you have to adjust with the world]
Track Name: Blunt Retreat
you were supposed to self-reflect
so, I thought, you could
start seeing some mistakes
but you just kept moving on

I guess sometimes
that's the right way
but if you always keep moving
and don't look back
you'll simply forget who you are
there is no chance to self-reflect
and to muse about the past

no reflection
you deny the past
no change at all
you can't go any further

you were supposed to self-reflect
so, I thought, you could
start seeing some mistakes
but you were running away

I guess that can never
be the right way
cause if you always keep running
and don't look back
you'll simply forget who you are
there is no chance to live your life
if you're always on the run
