Holy Ossuary (Jean-Pierre Mercier) Whispers and wishes Link them together Your dream's a silent order To confess yourself when your heart burns Descending to a turn Beside the same lesson I can't learn You sign a song I never… I never heard before In a Holy Ossuary My heart's my enemy But this time I need you to bring it… Back to me In a Holy Ossuary My heart's my enemy But this time I need you to bring it… Back to me Express yourself through us When there's no one else that you can trust You can't find your way But don't think you're lost You try to read this book for hours It remains the same 3 million words later I think I've lost it… Forever

The View (Jean-Pierre Mercier) When voices lie to me I lie And if they laugh at me I smile Well, I try Where should I look this time? Tell me, where should I look this time? To find a wall behind a wall To find a door behind a door And maybe the walls will never stop to grow And maybe they won't and maybe we will never know I fly in my dreams But I don't get really far Enough to see Just who you really are Maybe the walls will never stop to grow Maybe they won't and maybe we will never know I fly in my dreams But I don't get really far Just enough to see Just who you really are Where should I look this time? Tell me, where should I look this time? To find a door behind a door To find a flag behind a flag

A Short Story (Jean-Pierre Mercier) Yes, there are paths we should never take Like there are mistakes that must be made Yes, there are games you should never play Like there are words you should never say How come there is blood on this page Guess it's too late to rearrange There is no need to draw a line Guess everybody here is blind They'll wait until they hear you call To come with knives and kill us all Then they will go without making a sound No matter what you try no matter what you say They hide in places where they'll never, never be found Their life is no an open book Your not allowed to take a look Some of us thought we could read their minds But we realized it was a waste of time So we just sit and look around And watch everything falling down I hope you see what's in their hands It's just the next part of their plan To wait until they hear you call They'll come with knives and kill us all Then they will leave without making a sound No matter what you try no matter what you say They hide in places where they'll never, never be found

Face to Face (Jean-Pierre Mercier) The flags lay on the floor One dead conquistador The air we breath's so cold Home of tormented souls Hide your mistaken fears Hide all your desperate tears Yes, something here must die It keeps warning me way down deep inside Birds from the sacred land They could sing and they could fly and die for you I sent those flower for you Open your eyes I look at I won't cry for you I won't died for you You can send your message from your hiding place But you don't say the same things when were face to face I got the scars on my hands I wear a shroud on my face Why don't you try it again? Now, we are face to face Face to face Blood falls from paradise Another human sacrifice The Christian sinking boat The truth stuck in their throat Desert winds dry my eyes Is this our last goodbye? Yesterday's not enough But I'm afraid tomorrow's much to much

The Keep (Jean-Pierre Mercier) The feeling that I despise Somehow you make it last Those things that you still hide They're a part of someone else's past You stop before I do I do something sinful You better stop before we do We do something cruel Say you don't Say you won't You won't keep it away Say you don't And I'm begging the world to let me see I'm begging my heart to let me breath Until I break your skin Until you let me in Until you give me everything Wait, dear wait Heaven's on my way If I give you my hands will you Just guide me through that secret place? Who knows what's on your mind Who knows how you feel Those things that you still hide They're a part of someone else will You stop before I do I do something sinful You better stop before I do I do something cruel
