Haken Puzzle Box Lyrics

Latent memories forming deep inside of me

Dormant barren visceral senses now subdued

No escape. I navigate through my cave

Beneath the skin. They keep us in night and day

Parasite – Leech upon the guilt from all my wrongs

(Lead me on a pathway to the core)

Paralysed – Staring through the shadows on the wall

(Unable to solve this puzzle box)

The journey’s long, the shadows dance around

The answer lies beyond the fourth wall

My future days are etched into my skull

Hanging ever by a tethered body, mind and soul

Parasite – Leech upon the guilt from all my wrongs

(Lead me on a pathway to the core)

Paralysed – Staring through the shadows on the wall

(Unable to solve this puzzle box)

Truth or deception? I lose all perception inside

A fleeting sense of self worth evaporates into nothingness

A tepid grip on myself melts away to oblivion

Shadows on the wall dance around

Reflections in the amber to be found

A puppet on a string soon unwound

The truth inside the cave soon to be unbound

The path beyond the mountain led me here

The answer crystallised in history

But now the cracks of time begin to show

We lift the veil on what the future holds

The torture of entrapment ever grows

And now I’m waiting for the afterglow

A beast inside of me awakening

Alas the consequences of my sins

Shadows on the wall dance around

Reflections in the amber to be found

A puppet on a string soon unwound

The truth inside the cave soon to be unbound

Parasites as thick as thieves

Paralysed my golden wings

Bouncing off the walls

Latent memories erupting

Pulling at the cord

Earth beneath my feet is trembling

Lightning cracks the sky

‘Wakening the beast inside me

Rawness in his eyes

Reeking stench of fear and regret

Cause and consequence

Show me reverence

Fate or circumstance?

I feel severance

Lightning cracks the sky

Eyes intensify

I will stay trapped inside

How can truth set us free when lies are all we have?

How can time heal us when our days are running out?
