Lyrics from “Permanent Funeral”

Shattered Glass (Lyrics: Jacques Saph – Music: Jacques Saph)
Love words whispered between your legs
Broken heart, mirrors in shreds
Hold me with your nails forever
Don’t let me see the morning hours

Love’s like shattered glass
Caress my skin
Drain my veins dry
Love’s like shattered glass
Shattered glass

Cherished seconds, make them last forever
Breaths fade away like snow in summer
Smoke and shadows, we’re closing our eyes
And who cares if we die tonight

Love’s like shattered glass
Caress my skin
Drain my veins dry
Love’s like shattered glass
Shattered glass

Serpents (Lyrics: Suzi Sabotage – Music: Jacques Saph & Suzi Sabotage)
Hatred rains on us like serpents
Gripping each with their teeth
Venom seeping through the dents
The loveless wrath that they seethe
Can we ever bring down, defeat
A monster that’s guarded so well
Salvage the masses it wants to eat
Can we ever break the spell?

Oh how I long for the day
Oh how I long for the day
Oh how I long for the day
When the serpents are chased away

That beast still lies in repose
But they wish to rise it from shadows
Unleash your own Shangri-La
A totalitarian brutopia

Oh how I long for the day
Oh how I long for the day
Oh how I long for the day
When the serpents are chased away

Kiss/Kill (Lyrics: Jacques Saph & Suzi Sabotage – Music: Jacques Saph)
And I am your nightmare
Close your eyes, I’m everywhere
Ripped fishnet, black hair dye
I want you as much as I wanna die
The snake of Eden veiled in black
Slits on wrists, furtive attack
Come with me to ecstasy
Trapped forever in this lunacy

Kiss! kill! Dragging you down
Kiss! Kill! From dusk to dawn

I’m the sound you hear at night
This twisted thrill, love at first fright
Cold blade on your skin
Lacerating from within
Nothing matters, we’re dust and shadow
For lust and pain know no tomorrow
Love whispered in your last breath
In the midst of life, we are in death

Kiss! kill! Dragging you down
Kiss! Kill! From dusk to dawn

Ventriloquist (Lyrics: Suzi Sabotage – Music: Jacques Saph)
An incandescent iron
Pressed against the flesh
The incandescent wrath
Makes my wound fresh
You always pull my strings
Make me do vicious things
Stir my precious sufferings
My pendulum mood swings

You’re my ventriloquist
You’re my puppeteer
You make me twist
As you whisper in my ear

An incandescent iron
Pressed against the flesh
The incandescent wrath
Makes my wound fresh
You always pull my strings
Make me do vicious things
Stir my precious sufferings
My pendulum mood swings

You’re my ventriloquist
You’re my puppeteer
You make me twist
As you control my fear
My fear

You’re my ventriloquist
You’re my puppeteer
You make me twist
As you whisper in my ear
You’re my ventriloquist
You’re my puppeteer
You make me twist
As you control my fear
My fear

Darkness at Noon (Lyrics & Music: Jacques Saph)
Another voyage another walk
Melodies spat like blind rage
Evil eye, evil glare
Dead man hanging on a violent stage
Split-second stuttering thoughts
Dreams are blood on fingertips
Washed out in cold water
A fleeting look as the future slips

Lost – under city lights
Lost – no fate on sight
Lost – another day
Another night
Threw the dreams away

Blade on flesh, skydiving
Into the void of our times
Shattering illusion
Swallowed in a silent whine
And I fall down as I walk alone
Torn between love and dirt
One mind, two souls, twin mirrors
Lonely wander where the nightmares convert

Lost – under city lights
Lost – no fate on sight
Lost – another day
Another night
Threw the dreams away

78 Nightmares (Lyrics & Music: Jacques Saph)
Lost without words, lost in my mind
Mental concrete poured over at night
I could have tried, I could have lied
Awaken dreams, stoned and crucified!
A madness descent and inner fights
Torture witnessed by the enemy inside
Hands are held, anguish fever
Let us wake up and sleep forever

Into the Abyss (Lyrics & Music: Jacques Saph)

Self-Destruction (Lyrics:Suzi Sabotage – Music: Jacques Saph)
Burning bridges wherever I go
Wrecking them like a tornado
I bite the hand, the hand that feeds
I bite it hard until it bleeds

Under the spell of self-destruction
Fallen for its seduction

Swallowing jagged razorblades
Their edges protrude through my veins
Cutting you, the one that I need
Cutting you hard until you bleed

Under the spell of self-destruction
Fallen for its seduction

Severing ties at any price
Slicing short all lifelines
Warped out of recognition
I’m on a kamikaze mission

Under the spell of self-destruction
Fallen for its seduction

Still Life (Lyrics & Music: Jacques Saph)
Drowning in this icy air
Nothing moves anymore

Still life

Creeping silence, distant voices
I hear the darkness breathe

Still life

Blurry reflections
On a broken mirror
Still life is fading
I can’t see nor hear
I can’t help but feel
I can’t see nor hear
I can’t help but feel
