Track Name: Light my way
Light my way in this night- I'm giving all for this.
Can I run far from here across the fields?
I've given all my faith to you so I can reach a star,
But when it seems my eyes are waiting for my tears
I'll be gone.
Now my voice is clear enough for you to hear.
Broken words I saved through all the years.
Believe in things I never should I never should have done,
But when it seems my eyes are waiting for my tears
I'll be gone,
I'll be on the run.
Then who you are when you keep hiding from everyone?
Do you still feel pale?
This is your warning sign to find another way.
I've been good for many years, but then I felt blue.
I have seen my dreams just in my dreams.
Memories are grain of dust, or maybe I'm just lost,
And the only word I tell you is the only word you never want to hear.
My fears are leaving me for now.
Then who you are when you keep hiding from everyone?
Do you still feel pale?
This is your warning sign to find another way.
Many roads in front of me and it might take long.
Many ways to be free,
But I'm scared, but I'm afraid
To lose all this affection for you.
I have no more confessions, no hesitations - it's you.
I never had you for myself.
It's just my tears.
Then who you are when you keep hiding from everyone?
Do you still feel pale?
This is your warning sign to find another way,
But now you have no one to call to.. it's just my tears.
I'm waiting for my tears.
Track Name: Crush
I always thought that I would know
How to react when I get slow
When I crush into the stones.
I used to think I can reveal
The secrets of my hidden drawers,
But now and then I'm not so sure
Then I become so insecure
I wish I knew myself.
Is it the rhythm of my life
Or is it something else instead?
There is no king and there is no crown,
There's not so much of what I found,
And there's no rainbow, no.
And if there is, I want to know,
But if there isn't let me go.
This place is crazy, and so am I.
I find it hard to define.
I always need to go.
Oh what a shame this is for me
There is no place that I can be.
Track Name: Nothing but Miracles
Whisper without a sound, leave with no warning.
Claw your way to the sunset until the evening takes a hold of you.
No, you will see no landscape, but your mind is opening a window
To the ocean with it's hidden sun.
But the eye sees nothing but miracles so inconceivable you'll see
There's a beautiful place to be, and I wonder if you'll see it all.
Now you're hiding beneath the sky and you walk on the water
Stepping through the shadows, and the silence nearly gets you.
But the stars are still shining and the sun is rising.
When it sometimes seems the days end way before it's dark,
But the eye sees nothing but miracles so inconceivable you'll see
There's a beautiful place to be, and I wonder if you'll see it all.
But somehow revenge was lost in this confusion
No one seems to brace it
They got tired of illusions,
But the land is empty, and the roads keep changing.
When you look back you see nothing but a cloud of dust.
But the eye sees nothing but miracles so inconceivable you'll see
There's a beautiful place to be, and I wonder if you'll see it all.
Now you're dreaming of love to come aching for feelings
To pull you out of madness out of sadness for a while.
But in the end of all these crazy days you'll see no children play here.
It's just the silence hidden everywhere.
But the eye sees nothing but miracles so inconceivable you'll see
There's a beautiful place to be, and I wonder if you'll see it all
Track Name: Fool
Pull
YOUR HEAD
YOU FOOL STOP PLAYING DEAD
YOU LIVE ALONE
YOU LIVE WITH AN INNER VOICE THAT KEEPS patting ON YOUR BACK WHEN YOU'RE THROUGH
WITH THE HARD TIMES
THEN YOU CHOOSE TO OBEY
THE GOD YOU CREATED FOR YOURSELF
YOU FED HIM WITH YOUR HANDS
AND HE'S THE ONE YOU CREATED FOR YOURSELF BUT NOW HE'S PUSHING YOU AWAY
YOU FOOL
Track Name: Farewell
Do you want to live?
Do you want to breathe?
Do you want to give me your soul?
Do you want to be with me?
Do you want to be at all?
Cover my face with your hands,
Cover me all.
Why won't you stay?
Why won't you turn away?
Take me up,
Take me back.
Track Name: The man in my head
THE MAN IN MY HEAD
Someone lives in my head
I don't think that we've met yet
We have no communication
He moves it in his own way
I want to meet the man in my head
I want to see the man in my head
Cynical words he says are causing me a headache
He's forcing me to behave like I shouldn't behave
Who is the man who sleeps in my head?
And who is the man I should be afraid of?
Track Name: Maze
It's a never out maze
It's a never end piece of art
Lies, in a safe we can't break.
It's not giving us time
To take the turn from the start,
And to prepare for the long lasting night.
We are getting close to the end of the light.
It's a critical phase
It's the meaningless ways we have tried
To become something good,
To feel when we fight
Until the end of this ride.
As if it really makes a difference
Which might
Turn us all for a different kind.

Untie my hands
Unleash the crowd, don't drop the bomb.
We have lost all the power and trust
We are kneeling on the sand now
We're moving fast towards nothing
We can have,
But instead we're forgetting everything
That we had.

And I know how you feel
Yes, I know how you feel about this,
And how you truly believed
There is no way turning back.
"Are we there yet?" - you ask,
But the look in your eyes makes a crack on the floor that I'm standing on.
It's a critical phase
It's the meaningless ways we have tried,
To become something good
To feel when we fight
Until the end of this ride.
As if it really makes a difference
Which might
Turn us all for a different kind.

Will we ever rise again
before we'll find our way back home?
Track Name: The treatment
I'm burning like a burning man
I'm floating lighter than the air
I'm counting every fucking minute
Is this the life I'd choose for me
Is it the truth or is it me?
I'm carefully committed.
I can confess just to myself
I can't refuse to who I am
But who I am is who I am
Perhaps it's time to come clean, to move on
The treatment might be painful.
Dreadful.
And where is my blue sky?
And through the dark it's you I see into the night
We'll have no fear.
I'm getting easily diminished
I'm giving up on you my friend
I'm letting go 'cause you won't stand
I'm not asking your permission.
I must reveal the golden egg
Before my luck closes its gate
I'm asking for consideration.
This twilight zone is not for me
I move on
The treatment might be painful.
Dreadful.
And where is my blue sky
Give me some of this life
Let me be
Let me fly high
Track Name: Hold on
HOLD ON
I'm waiting for the black coated man
To take me for a long walk.
For so long it has seemed there's nothing real.
How can I love myself this way?
How can I be the ghost I am?
The furious winter is on its way,
And I need someone to save my day
Hold on.
I'm waiting for the black coated man
I'm waiting until there's no one,
No one to show me how it ends.
I'm curious where I will end up,
And how many soldiers have I lost.
Maybe I'm locked inside my cage
Or maybe I'm digging my own grave
Hold on.
