  • The cries of all the weak
    I'm the lies
    The lies that feed you (for) years
    I'm the dreams
    The dreams that fade as time pass

    I'm the drug
    The drug that fondles your grief
    I'm the hope
    The hope that never lived
    I'm the storm
    The storm you fear to deal with

    In your minds
    The death of sanity
    In your lifes
    The misery always reigns
    In your eyes
    The total absence of light

    Death is my
    My reason to exist
    Time is my
    My worst of (all) enemies
    Life is my
    My doom for (the) years to come

    The cries of all the weak
    The lies that feed you (for) years
    The dreams that fade as time pass
    The drug that fondles your grief
    The hope that never lived
    The storm you fear to deal with
    The death of sanity
    The misery which reigns
    The total absence of light

    "We are like certain senses scattered wide
    That have no hope of ever reuniting
    All nature in our nerves falls in confusion

    We ache in both our body and recollection
    All things reject us, and all poetry
    Fills us with envy as our last asylum"

    [Poetry by Kostas Kariotakis]
    [translation by Kimon Friar]
