Track Name: Bracelet
you’ve found yourself alone
in a world that I don’t wanna know
but you tend to complicate all the strings of the bracelet

we’re drinking water on fire
but there’s no evidence
decisions out of line
they threw you in

tonight kiss your wish goodbye
but you keep it so alive

you free your soul it turns you on
you feel like one of them
well, but try as I may it will not go away
unless you let me explain this is not it

you’ve found yourself alone
in a world that I don’t wanna know
but you tend to complicate all the strings of the bracelet

we’re staying up all night
but there’s no evidence
incisions all around this farewell

tonight kiss your wish goodbye
but you keep it so alive

you free your soul, you don’t wanna know
it’s all just your world
well, but try as I may it will not go away
unless you let me explain this is not it

I can’t be the one you would like me to be

it’s just a moan
you don’t care about the word of denial
it ain’t less than you thought

it’s a mixture of accidents from the past
nothing is happening for real
just like the strings of the empty bracelet

I can’t be, no I can’t be the one you would like me to be
Track Name: Retrace
I’m sure everybody’s gonna turn their heads or look away
or just ignore the facts that lead to this inquisition
of the unforgiven ones against the innocence

retrace what you’ve got
don’t remain the one that you’re not
I stumble out of a place so cold and unbearable
got a ticket for the last ride
let me take it and I swear I‘ll leave this place
I don’t want your future just take it away

and now in this triggering of just another blinded action
I can see the dirt behind it all
and I can’t stand it anymore
just show me the door

retrace what you’ve got
don’t remain the one that you’re not
I stumble out of a place so cold and unbearable
got a ticket for the last ride
let me take it and I swear I’ll leave this place
I don’t want your future just take it away

I stumble out of a place so cold and unbearable
got a ticket for the last ride
let me take it and I swear I‘ll seek a new life
I don’t want your future just take it away...don’t chase it, replace it or just take it away
Track Name: Back to Nowhere
self-addicted pieces of a blinded memory
infested by an acrid worm
looking for the past, ignoring any savories
dumbfounded in a verbal storm

designated promise of eternal unity
terminated in the deepest hole
don’t lose your head, you know what’s there
could you ever ask for more?

the waves are still flowing in the odd brain’s insecurity
the shallow dimensions protect the light on its way back

capture it all
‘cause the remains of what used to be a bright and overwhelming youthful dignity
keep being sore and just denied by almost every single shade that creeps below the rambling memories
behind the walls there is an undetected life without the ability to neutralize the upcoming end of the neverending plague
it’s just going back to nowhere
I keep on falling back to nowhere
the waves are still flowing in the odd brain’s insecurity
the shallow dimensions protect the light on its way back
Track Name: Untitled
I hope you‘re more
you‘re more than them all

I don’t know why it’s always the same
I don’t know why I keep playing the game
without a beginning
in the end I just hope that you’re more
I hope you’re more than them
Track Name: Tribute
I thought about the will to fight against an odd enemy
that has rooted out deep inside the bones and brains
ferocious blow of faith is hard to swallow
but if roses bloom with thorns, it doesn‘t make their odour counterfeit
compassion may seem alright, but admiration is even more
just remember - no one can escape the night if the morning’s been secured

awakening from a bad dream is such a relief

bleeding hearts could tell you whether
this is the real nature of this game
so don’t confuse yourself and praise your health
you don’t need to bleed

it’s so unjust, it’s so unfair
that not all of us come here the same
despite the grief and suffering
there can be a smile shining through all the stains
all the stains can feel so worthless then
Track Name: Self-Surrender
what’s wrong?
after all, the banishment from the thoughts I left aside
whispered to me that night when you let me obtain your smile
if only it survived the daylight, broke all restraints
and just became a part of my life

those who drown in misery from what they’ve never done
shall be deprived of something that could have healed their sight
so why do I follow them? why?
is this what I‘m about?

afraid of seeing the way to go...to go
falling into a strained self-surrender
never being the one to hold...to hold
the reins of my self-surrender.
Track Name: Burnout
looking for attention of an empty crowd is just as dumb as unfamiliar
burning down the bridges is harder than it seems
I am my worst enemy

I lose control of it all
but nevermore
we’re trying to just hide it inside and your lying is my dying
come here again, explain it all

burning down the bridges is harder than it seems
I am my worst enemy

burnout...every day
burn out...it’s all you say...just burn
salvation

the way of your salvation is to get me here
I can’t believe that I’m aside, forgetting all your portraits
and it’s way to clear that I’m a reject
why did I use to be so eyeless?
to feel this infliction is like I’ve only been a victim of your doubtful mind
Track Name: Shooting Stars behind the Clouds
if tomorrow is a totally different day
I will still be thinking about what yesterday delivered me

a heartbreaking fever
tell me what to do
when I see your changing mood
need to make sure that you’re alright
so what should I think tonight?

even though it’s almost always quite the same
I can’t ever try to pretend it all away
...yesterday

a heartbreaking fever
tell me what to do
when I see your changing mood
need to make sure that you’re alright
so what should I think tonight?
because I’ve lost my head
it’s getting me down
don’t understand the shooting stars behind the clouds
I can feel a heartbreaking fever
tell me what to do
when I see your changing mood
need to make sure that you’re alright
so what should I think tonight?

won’t you please just talk to me?
Track Name: Break
lying straight to complicate the way you make all effort fake
wondering why you think you’re right all the time but we don’t mind

‘cause if we break, we‘ll break the altered wires you take
we all make mistakes, but you deserve nothing

losing taste in such a waste
is that your case?
pretend your face
asking why you read their minds instead of lives
is that the price?

all I know is that we‘ll break, we’ll break the altered wires you take
we all make mistakes, but you deserve nothing...just break
Track Name: Bleeding in and out
a common disbelief of always being able to control your senses is not ever gonna be that true
embrace yourself
respect the place you take and you’d better be awake

is this my face or is there something wrong with the mirror?
someone must have stolen my body

attacks of the awkward thoughts of what might have happened are just the price I pay
erase the way they chase my drops of blood
it feels like bleeding in and out

is this my face or is there something wrong with the mirror?
someone must have stolen my body to make it shiver
I don’t remember why I got as far as here
I’m vague or whatever

wanting to come back to the inconsistent days that made me complicated
wishing I could change some choices that I made
especially those betrayed by someone that was surely not me

so don’t follow my empty obsessions with the truth
these feelings are chasing me and I’m evasive
behold, there’s a sign of faith
Track Name: Inhale the Sky
a moment of quiet reflections
of how just a second can change the life
easy to talk, hard to believe
curtain is falling, lights out

beware the words I don’t wanna hear
dreams are a weaker version of fear
but somehow we need to feel this chill
the road is too slippery for our airheaded steps
and the signs don’t show the right direction

as the glass breaks the wind feels so cold
when blowing straight to one’s face
temptation’s reward - guilt and envy
fingerprints on the forehead

all the wasted time right in front of my eyes
mute awareness of the consequences
a meaningful lie, a highlight of circumstances
watch the outcome of an empty pleasure

the price to pay for the mistakes
has been set to an unknown rate
how much longer?
...and what if never ever again?
like a bird in a cage with feathers half-burnt
like a story that’s never been told
the pressure gets low then high again
just like there’s a start there should be an end
of all the negativity
and mindless state one cannot pretend
let’s take a sip of soothing wine
let’s just look up and inhale the sky...the sky...inhale
inhale the sky

the price to pay for the mistakes
has been set to an unknown rate
how much longer?
...and what if never again?
Track Name: Cover Your Eyes and Wait
everything is passing quicker than I thought
even though a new obstruction comes to show
how a single sight of gold can trigger the will to glow

lessons of a broken heart and open soul
minutes flow but the desire gets insecure
in this neverending need ribs begin to bleed

no light of silence
no glass of joy
waiting is worse than anything else
a piece of paper with a few true words
sharpens the hook and pulls it more
and after all thank you for making clear it’s not worth it
I cover my eyes so you can’t see what it all meant to me

go on...I need to go on but I’m far from being strong
no one...no one can understand it at all
it’s better to shelter your name deep inside and never tell it anyone

now who’d hide to stay down?
anger, passion, sorrow...overtaking each other deep inside
anger, passion, sorrow...overtaking each other inside
Track Name: Lost
a calm and quiet walk across the street where I have lost my hopes
but I still need them a lot
way ahead from the end you reach to stay and ruin all my conscience
we’re in a war of chances and their goodbyes

‘cause I heard you opened the book that you once shut on a different chapter
to write a brand new plot

still don’t get the last time you freed your heart
it must have been a joke
are you so mechanical to get what you want?
...and someone’s afraid to try
I don’t know what I should do
you go where I’ve never wanted to be
I just want you to keep your light

‘cause I heard you opened the book that you once shut on a different chapter
to write a brand new plot

instead of whispering, I should have shouted
maybe you just assembled to wither
should we both care about what’s wasted?
but if you wanted to be through, tell me

and the only thing that could make me feel glad is that I know you’ll be treated well
what I do instead is that I regret so much I missed the chance to tell you the truth about your eyes
watching you...watching you and your eyes...watching you without looking into your eyes
your eyes...I get lost in your eyes...can you feel it at all?
