*******






Gravitysays_i...
The figures of enormous grey and the patterns of fraud





















 THE PATTERNS OF FRAUD

Let-down with all the virtues
of the majority
The casualties of greed
And those who have no integrity
to show
Terrified men are crushing
each other
Breeding
Quite awful needs for quite
awful power

Uncertain truth
The cross i bear
And your point of view
Considered all,
We are
Misguided souls in the patterns of fraud
And i can't withdraw
myself from the battles i'm into
Brutal the fact
as brutal the culture




 


THE UNSHAKEABLE ALIBI

Behold!
The king of all
Embrace
The Pattern, the unbearable
Trading on
The Fear we share of dying

And everyone glorifies
the Holy Words
Delivered By Unholy
Minds
Little by little grew the fraud
of the Ages

What is hovering above?

The obedience will be treated
like royalty
And
The royalty shall be rewarded with
 eternity




THE ''ALL THINGS DECAY'' NEBULA 

The dreaming came out
of nowhere
Craving
Merging by deliberating
 





THE FINGER OF BLAME

Unwritten law
The mud we're all in
The fraud of institution
- A slavery of ego

How would you call the '' Modern Man ''?
Who's intrigued with his own icon
And the tendency of modern living
I call him coward
Who's settled down in hin unawareness

Are the infants fated to follow?
 




THE FIGURES OF ENORMOUS GREY

If it were in my power
Yearning to gratify
She'd gain her freedom
And he would arrive in time

Drowning in the grief
Of our unfulfilled dream
Grey turned our figure
Loose turned our belief

Γκελ, γκελ κα'ι'ξή...
γιαβάς, γιαβάς...







THE FAREWELL LETTERS

I'm tired
Of all your tricks
The cannibals you breed
Are heading my home


Oh you. Dreadful Monster
I can't change the world
Although
I wish I could just rip your heart off
Farewell, you Triumphant One




'Cause I don't have to put up with
The panic and
The horror
And your majestic cruelty

In the battles of acceptance



I don't preach...
But all we know is what we have been told
- A false tradition?

Misguided...
Our degenerated race will get what it deserves
- A Great Downfall?

Nothing shall ever come back
The years
The beloved ones
-Who all had died like Martyrs in the patterns of fraud-

The world,
The stars
And everything between us







 The Patterns of Fraud
 The Unshakeable Alibi
 Delusions Of Grandeur
 The "All Things Decay" Nebula
 The Finger Of Blame
 The Urge of Identity
 The Figures of Enormous Grey
 The Paradox of Youth
 The Farewell Letters

..We lost the skyline
We stepped right off the map
Drifted into black space
And let the clocks rellapse























ουρανός και θάλασσα
και τίποτα άλλο
ανάμεσα..
μόνο
το χαμόγελο 
του ήλιου
 να ζεσταίνει
τον ορίζοντα
της ψυχής
καθώς 
οι πρωινοί ήχοι
ακουγονται
στο νωπό τοπίο













warm inside
i float
knowing
that
the sea never rests
nor can the sky
be subdued

Night Bird



I cannot say
I was not expecting you

Sometimes we can smell the rain
In a cloudless sky

And there are so many paths
Through these woods

That your approach
Drifted in and out of my windows

With the birdsong
And the lilacs

So I was never sure
It was not the fickle breeze

Turning my head
And touching my heart

But when you did appear
Silently bearing gifts

Like a night bird
Come with snow

Beauty and abundance
Fell from your wings

And covered the land
