When I open up the door
and I step into a floor
See me running down the way
to another place I'll stay
In this room there is a door
from another endless floor
So I walk it 'til the end
Am coming back where I began

Then I fall into a dream within a dream within a dream
of the murder from "The Silence of the Lambs"

Silently, deeply creep in my heart and soul
Silently, deeply creep, all my love has gone

In my private picture dome
after 1000 days alone
I am meeting depardieu
and he asked me here to stay
An ambiguous sequel in many ways
Concerning my own situation
The translation "de son nom"
implies that all the gods are gone

And I'm falling into the scenes inside my movie gathering
Living timeless in a "casket irony" here

Silently 1, 2, 3, see the hours flow
Silently 39, 40 nights ago
Silently, days and weeks slowly counting by
Not a second, not the years reign our measured time

Silently, deeply creep in my heart and soul
Silently, deeply creep under skin and bones
Say why minutes take one life but years run out of hands
Here I play "capture time," try to understand
Silently, deeply creep in my heart and soul
Silently, deeply creep, all my love has gone

    General CommentThis song is set well after Christ-0 has escaped from jail. It signifies his descent into madness; fueled by nothing but hatred and revenge, his alter ego '0' overwhelms his consciousness once more.

    His 'private picture dome' refers to the collection of old horror movies he has, his only companionship. The booklet that comes with the CD describes that here, he "sees the ghosts of the movie characters and finds he can join them in their world, becoming a shadow of himself and melding into the darkness that is no longer just a hiding place, but his home."

    X doesn't make an appearance in this song, but he does in the next (Shadow I Am), in which he explores the theme of shadows.

    General CommentDoes X really not make appearance, or isn't he the one who does all the narrating, and where 0 appears to be talking - isn't it actually X reading what 0 has written?
