lyrics

This is suicide to try to open eyes here where I am
To lose the faith that this place is only a land of my dreams
This is suicide to try to run
Away from being aware of the punishment
I stand still between my dreams and reality
Is this place purgatory, is this reward

I've been put on the bridge, never-ending bridge
Hung between nothing and everything

Punishment, prize for every sin

I'm breathing it, it feeds me
It knows me, it's in my head
It covers me, it knows me, becomes me
I'm breathing it, it's in my head
But yet I can't stand here forever more
I must get out of the cage of ignorance
There is no day, no night here for me
Only the clouds surround me as a thickening fog

I desire memories, I desire sounds, I stay in silence
Who judged me, who stripped me of my real self
King whose sound faith was so merciless, so cruel

It's so hard to try to take the next step where I am
The previous one has overtaxed all the strength of mine
It's so hard for me to refuse
The sweet obsession to sweep through my soul
I'm drowning in dried ocean of words unsaid
Plague of the need to comprehend

I've been put on the bridge, never-ending bridge
Hung between nothing and everything

Punishment, prize for every sin

I'm breathing it, it feeds me
It waters me, becomes me
It covers me, it knows me
It's in my head, becomes me
Crumbs of the past in these perfect shades of grey
I hold them tight with me, it's all blurry now
The panic suffocates me, steals my breath
It injects fear into veins, poisons my sobriety

I dream so much about a single recollection
Which would help me to reminisce my name
Sometimes I feel like remembering it
When I've got it in my hand it disappears

I've been put on the bridge, never-ending bridge
Hung between nothing and everything
Someday I'll see the edge at the end of this way
When nothing will be left unsaid
Someday I'll see the sun hidden somewhere over the clouds
Then nothing left to hide before my eyes

This is suicide to try to run
Away from being aware of the punishment
I stand still between my dreams and reality
Is this place purgatory, is this reward

I've been put on the bridge, never-ending bridge
Hung between nothing and everything
Someday I'll see the edge at the end of this way
When nothing will be left unsaid
Someday I'll see the sun hidden somewhere over the clouds
Then nothing left to hide before my eyes
