I haven't got more than this, maybe it's totally wrong, I 
haven't played more than the beginning, that part sounds 
quite good. 
The rhythm guitar plays very weird and unfinished
lines, the rhythm varies between 4/4, 3/4 and 5/4:

Phew, that was a tough one! How can they remember all this
parts?

Here is the lyrics:
Verse 1:
Never hunger, never prosper
I have fallen prey to failure
Struggle within, triggered again
Now the candle burns at both ends
Verse 2:
Twisting under schizophrenia
Falling deep into dementia
Chorus 1:
Old habits reappear
Fighting the fear of fear
Growing conspiracy
Everyone's after me (last time: Myself is after me)
Frayed ends of sanity, hear them calling me
Verse 1:
Birth of terror, death of much more
I'm the slave of fear, my captor
Never warnings, spreading it's wings
As I wait for the horror she brings
Verse 2:
Loss of interest, question, wonder
Waves of fear they pull me under
Chorus
Verse 1:
Into ruin, I am sinking
Hostage of this nameless feeling
Hell is set free, flooded I'll be
Feel the undertow inside me
Verse 2:
Height, hell, time, haste, terror, tension
Life, death, want, waste, mass depression
Chorus

That's it lads!
