Circle 1
Limbo
 
"Where I End and You Begin"-Radiohead
 
there's a gap in between
there's a gap where we meet
where i end and you begin
and i'm sorry for us
the dinosaurs roam the earth
the sky turns green
where i end and you begin
 
i am up in the clouds
i am up in the clouds
and i can't and i can't come down
i can watch but not take part
where i end and where you start
where you, you left me alone
you left me alone
 
X will mark the place
like parting the waves
like a house falling in the sea
 
i will eat you all alive
i will eat you all alive
i will eat you all alive
i will eat you all alive
 
there'll be no more lies
there'll be no more lies
there'll be no more lies
there'll be no more lies
 
Circle 2
Whirling in a Dark & Stormy Wind
 
"Somewhere I Belong"-Linkin Park
 
When this began
I had nothing to say
And I get lost in the nothingness inside of me
I was confused
And I let it all out to find
That I'm not the only person with these things in mind
Inside of me
But all the vacancy the words revealed
Is the only real thing that I've got left to feel
Nothing to lose
Just stuck
Hollow and alone
And the fault is my own
And the fault is my own
 
I wanna heal
I wanna feel what I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain I've felt so long
Erase all the pain till it's gone
I wanna heal
I wanna feel like I'm close to something real
I wanna find something I've wanted all along
Somewhere I belong
 
And Iv'e got nothing to say
I can't believe I didn't fall right down on my face I was confused
Looking everywhere only to find
That it's not the way I had imagined it all in my mind
So what am I
What do I have but negativity
Cause I can't justify the way everyone is looking at me
Nothing to lose
Nothing to gain
Hollow and alone
And the fault is my own
And the fault is my own
 
I wanna heal
I wanna feel what I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain I've felt so long
Erase all the pain till it's gone
I wanna heal
I wanna feel like I'm close to something real
I wanna find something I've wanted all along
Somewhere I belong
 
I will never know myself until I do this on my own
And I will never feel anything else
Until my wounds are healed
I will never be anything till I break away from me
I will break away
I'll find myself today
 
I wanna heal
I wanna feel what I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain I've felt so long
Erase all the pain till it's gone
I wanna heal
I wanna feel like I'm close to something real
I wanna find something I've wanted all along
Somewhere I belong
 
I wanna heal
I wanna feel like I'm somewhere I belong
I wanna heal
I wanna feel like I'm somewhere I belong
Somewhere I belong
 
Circle 3
Mud, Rain, Cold, Hail & Snow
 
"The New Flesh"-NIN
 
i can take it
sideways
sometimes
some things
feel like
i'm on the other side
waves
of every feeling ever felt
...screaming
hold it close
so i can taste it
 
i've watched this scene a thousand times
and in my head
this is how it all begins
yes, i am becoming
and this is how it all begins
what did you expect?
this is not an exit
this has begun
 
i can almost see
the blackest eyes
the new flesh
a new disguise
...welcoming...
 
please
give it to me
i can take it
 
give it to me
 
i can take it
 
Circle 4
Rolling Weights
 
"10 Miles High"-NIN
 
I'm going to get so high
You'll never get inside
I swore I'd never turn into you
I'm closer all the time
 
I made it 10 miles high
Can't tell my truth from my lies
I swore to god I would never turn into you
I'm getting closer... all the time
 
tear it all down
tear it all down
tear it all down
tear it all down
 
Circle 5
Stuck in Mud, Mangled
 
"Dream On"-Depeche Mode
 
As your bony fingers close around me
Long and spindly
Death becomes me
Heaven can you see what I see
 
Hey you pale and sickly child
You're death and living reconciled
Been walking home a crooked mile
 
Paying debt to karma
You party for a living
What you take won't kill you
But careful what you're giving
 
There's no time for hesitating
Pain is ready, pain is waiting
Primed to do it's educating
 
Unwanted, uninvited kin
It creeps beneath your crawling skin
It lives without it lives within you
 
Feel the fever coming
You're shaking and twitching
You can scratch all over
But that won't stop you itching
 
Can you feel a little love
Can you feel a little love
 
Dream on dream on
 
Blame it on your karmic curse
Oh shame upon the universe
It knows its lines
It's well rehearsed
 
It sucked you in, it dragged you down
To where there is no hallowed ground
Where holiness is never found
 
Paying debt to karma
You party for a living
What you take won't kill you
But careful what you're giving
 
Can you feel a little love
Can you feel a little love
 
Dream on dream on
 
River Styx
 
Circle 6
Buried for Eternity
 
"My Way"-Frank Sinatra
 
And now the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I've travelled each and every highway
and more, much more than this
I did it my way
Regrets I've had a few
But then again too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption
I planned each chartered course
Each careful step along the by-way
And more, much more than this
I did it my way
Yes, there were times
I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all
And I stood tall
And did it my way
I've loved, I've laughed, and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside
I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way
"Oh no, oh no, not me
I did it my way"
For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way
Yes, it was my way
 
River Phlegyas
 
Circle 7
Burning Sands
 
"Nobody's Fault But My Own"-Beck
 
When they catch all they wanted from you
And they find that's all you knew
Pack your bags from another town
It's time to move
 
I bet you were far to find
Electrified in all this life
Now you find that you're almost dying
And all alone
 
How could they be so cruel
Pointing a finger, throw the book at you
And who would want to dance with you
Say it's true, I know it's true
I know it's true
 
Tell me that it's nobody's fault
Nobody's fault
But my own
It's nobody's fault
Nobody's fault
But my own
 
When the moon is a counterfeit
Better find the one that fits
Better find the one that lights
The way for you
 
When the road is full of nails
Darkened jails and garbage pails
And the paper's full of heartless tales
Of faceless clowns
 
Who would ever be so cruel
Fall into the residue
Who would ever dance with you
Say it's true, I know it's true
I know it's true
 
Tell me that it's nobody's fault
Nobody's fault
But my own
Tell me that it's nobody's fault
Nobody's fault
But my own
 
Circle 8
Immersed in Excrement
 
"Mad World"-Gary Jules
 
All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places
Worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
Going nowhere
Going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression
No expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrows
No tomorrow
No tomorrow
 
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
These dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very very
Mad World
Mad World
 
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday
And they feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen
Sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me
No one knew me
Hello teacher tell me whats my lesson
Look right through me
Look right through me
 
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it's a very very
Mad World
Mad World
 
Enlargen your world
 
Mad World
 
Circle 9
Frozen in Ice
 
"And All That Could Have Been"-NIN
 
Breeze still carries the sound
Maybe I'll disappear
Tracks will fade in the snow
You won't find me here
 
Ice is starting to form
Ending what had begun
I am locked in my head
With what I've done
 
I know you tried to rescue me
Didn't let anyone get in
Left with a trace of all that was
And all that could have been
 
Please
Take this
And run far away
Far away from me
I am tainted
The two of us
Were never meant to be
All these pieces
And promises and left behinds
If only I could see
In my nothing
You meant everything
Everything to me
 
Gone fading everything
And all that could have been
 
Please
Take this
And run far away
Far as you can see
I am tainted
And happiness and peace of mind
Were never meant for me
All these pieces
And promises and left behinds
If only I could see
In my nothing
You meant everything
Everything to me
