THREATENING CALM
Music by Jouni Koskela (October 2011)

COGNITIVE DISSONANCE
Music by Jouni Koskela (July 2012)
Lyrics by Jouni Koskela (October 2012)

Bring me the reasons for the thoughts that weigh me down and
subsequently expose me to the guilt of forbidden allure
Tell me the origins of the behavior that has set the tone
for the altercations with my conscious identity

For I am nothing short of human
Therefore I'm prone to indulge these tainted conceptions

Returning to portals of my psychotic inertia
How crippling was the time when the house of cards fell apart
This time it was I who burned the structures to the ground
Unveiling the travesties derivative of my flaws abound

For I am nothing short of human
Therefore I'm prone to indulge these tainted perceptions
Fighting the urge to comply

I feel like I'm drawn down to the depths of emotional weakness
And I feel I can't help myself by negating the thoughts that draw me down to the abyss
I feel like I'm run down by the chaos of redefinition
that'll sweep all the rules around to constitute a striking fear of myself

Against the absolute values I previously cherished
This mockery of justice just is nothing I can rationalize
I traded the purity of my soul at the hour of weakness
However humane, such decadence of the mind I cannot sustain

For I am nothing short of human
Therefore I'm prone to indulge these tainted conceptions

I feel like I'm drawn down to the depths of emotional weakness
And i feel I can't help myself by negating the thoughts that draw me down to the abyss
I feel like I'm run down by the chaos of redefinition
that'll sweep all the rules around to constitute a striking fear of myself

Not to mention the questionable extents to which
I'm capable of veering the choices I make
But at the end of the road lies the only thing
That cannot be redeemed by any voice of reason 

AGAINST THE ABSOLUTE
Music by Jouni Koskela (March 2012)
Lyrics by Jouni Koskela (May 2013)

When you are bare naked before the surrounding world
the insecurities translate to turbulent, paralyzing fears
Dictating everything including your thoughts
That foreshadow each and every single one of your deeds

The path is wide open for the terrors that come in great numbers
Clad in psychotic misconceptions of perpetual abandonment
Deteriorating the defensive mechanisms furthermore
until the self has no other way but commencing destruction

What you are able to do when you're going against yourself?
To betray your righteous self or fortify your inhibitions
And then you know the doors are shut as you've closed them all by yourself
While the depression peaks at yearning for full redemption

This vivid imagery of deception dominates all levels of thought
Blurring your perception of reality to a point of delusional distraught
Feel the locks build upon one another, layer after layer
Until you feel safe enough while enabling the manic, reckless behavior

What you are able to do when you're going against yourself?
To betray your righteous self or fortify your inhibitions
And then you know the doors are shut as you've closed them all by yourself
While the depression peaks at yearning for full redemption

L'ESPRIT DE L'ESCALIER
Music by Jouni Koskela (January 2013)
Lyrics by Jouni Koskela (June 2013)

I remember the time everything was meaningful
All challenges to overcome with a dash of hand
This pact of divine alliance was to never decease
And we imagined nothing could destroy such peace

While temptations became the flesh of our enemies
The fear of loss overthrew all the reason
that was to uphold the grounds of our laws;
I foolishly gave in to the terrors of my flaws

This world breaks the best of us
and we find it out when it's too late
To all the love, we grow oblivious

This world takes the rest of us
and rewards them with the balance of mind
The depths of our suffering remain equal

True, I will ne'er be able to overthrow this disdain
emerging from the righteous path of succumbing to endless pain
However yours must overpower the depths of my contrition
so would the downfall of my sanity suffice as sufficient perdition?

This world breaks the best of us
and we find it out when it's too late
To all the love, we grow oblivious (like it was never meant to be)

This world takes the rest of us
and rewards them with the balance of mind
The depths of our suffering remain equal (and we still fail)
