Track Name: Better Place
Better Place

I will give up myself
I will bury the light
I’ll turn every stone
I would go for the longest ride towards you
Hold on tight, I'm giving all I can
Can I hope it will be just as good as it was?
This terrible need is getting me awfully mad
And now I'm suffocating

I must find a better place for me and for my loneliness
And I'm the observer who always keeps an eye on you when you're
gone, I'm the only one
Oh I've made it again
I’ve destroyed the whole plot
The heroes are here but I cannot see the crowd
How lonely some of us can get when lights are off
It is getting so clear I got nothing to lose
The things I am hiding are digging beneath my roots
I’m folding all my dreams and I can't stand it
And I must find a better place for me and for my loneliness
And I'm the observer who always keeps an eye on you when you're
gone, I'm the only one

And it's hard to admit
I'm in charge of my faith, in charge of the venom that's sneaking into my veins
I’m choking
Cut my throat, I need to get some air
Little sunshine beware of the dragons you hold
Beware of the harvest you're bringing into your door
Remorse is out of question, and I am left without an answer
Track Name: Long Line
There's a long line
And everyone is waiting for the whole time
But fear is heading faster than we all do
We have no choice
We’re taking all we can and getting on the train
It's a long walk, an endless road to nowhere
It's the wrong plan
Who’s leading us into the blue with no signs
Forcing us into the ground while we surrender with charm
So what do we do now?
What on earth is left for us to do now?
And could it be that all we see is fiction
And could it be that all we ever do is hidden from our minds
Did we lose our minds?
Track Name: All Going Down
I don't remember how dark it was
They took over the lands and the seas
The dark side of humans
Is about to be proven
And soon they’ll pay all of their fees

The treasure was stolen so secretly
So no one could see a thing
Their power is endless
And mostly they're shameless
And they don't really care for a thing
We are all going down
We're sinking together
Without a savior
Perhaps now forever
Let’s make it clear
We are one-of-a-kind

But we’re losing our kindness
Avoiding the brightness
That's longing to get in
That longs to get in

All the men and the women are desperate
All the old ones are trapped in their past
And the poor little baby
Fights with demons and fairies
Will soon find there's no one to trust

The animals' cages are open wide
They are getting prepared for the fight
The earth is in danger
Cause everyone’s a stranger
Now who will carry the light

We are all going down
We're sinking together
Without a savior
Perhaps now forever
Let’s make it clear
We are one-of-a-kind
But we’re losing our kindness
Avoiding the brightness
That's longing to get in
That longs to get in

The ground is still burning in paradise
Heaven's merging with hell
The good and the bad
In a box full of mud
Stuck inside of an old ancient shell

While a few men are struggling for the sake of all
Most of us are still standing still
We're handing our future
To the hands of the butcher
And now it is time for the bill
'Cause
We are all going down
We're sinking together
Without a savior
Perhaps now forever
Let's make it clear
We are one-of-a-kind
But we’re losing our kindness
Avoiding the brightness
That's longing to get in
That longs to get in
Track Name: Through The Woods
I want to be a part of a mission
I want to be a part of the system
I want to be ruled by a king who cares for me
I want to be loved by my queen
I'd give her all that she needs
I want to protect my kingdom

I want to be treated the way I deserve
I want to be treated the way that I love
So don't you put me down no more
Won't you grab my hand, peel the pain
Heal my wounds and lead me through the woods
I want to be a part of this
I want to be a part of you
You choose me the way I choose you

And how strange it feels to be hunted
How sad you took me for granted
I pledged myself to you
But you give nothing to me
I kept on tracking you down
You kept on hiding away
How can I protect my kingdom

I want to be lifted by millions of stars
I want to forgive you
But you turned your back
And now you've let me down again
The token wasn't paid

You dropped the blade
You cut the thread and sent me to the woods

I want to be a part of this
I want to be a part of you
You choose me the way I choose you
You lose me the way I lose you
Don't want to be a part of a mission
Don't want to be a part of the system
Don't want to be ruled by a king
Who doesn't care for me
Don't want to be loved by this Queen
I'd take back all that she owes
Don't want to protect my kingdom, any more

I want to be a part of this
I want to be a part of you
You choose me the way I choose you
You lose me the way I lose you
Track Name: Time To Leave
Show your face, it's time to leave
Say goodbye, you won't miss it at all
You won't want to come back
Lay your fears, dare to roam
Find a road and walk for a while
You stretch when you get up

And when the rain is falling you raise your head , you raise your head up
And if your wounds are filled with pain
You raise your head, you raise your head up
You raise your head up

Change your ways
And feel your wish
And take your shoes off
And walk on the grass, you rest in the shade
Help me see how it's done,
And how those wheels are turning
Is it late to go back
Oh it feels good to come back

And when the rain is falling you raise your head, you raise your head up
And if your wounds are filled with pain
You raise your head, you raise your head up
You raise your head up

Wake me up and wait for me
And I'll be good I promise
Just as good as I can
I'll be good
Track Name: Summer
Here's a story of a man who was drowning in his bed
Late at night
He wasn't sure if he's awake
Someone told him to give up, but he can't remember who it was
He's becoming less aware
Still pretending, not recalling
That day
It might take a while
We'll wait for the summer
Wait
And it might be too late
We’ll wait for another
Another day to come

And here’s a story of a boy who had nothing in return for no one
And now he's wondering what is wrong, or what is done
He won't be brave, he won't try, he won't make a change and cry
How I wish he would this time
It might take a while
We'll wait for the summer
Wait
And it might be too late
We'll wait for another
Another day
To come
Track Name: Boat Outside The River
I almost live here but I don’t
I make it look like I’ve been here for years
You will not get a clue
Not a hint from me
I’d rather be the one I’m not
A souvenir is all that I have left for me
I almost live here but I don’t
I make it look like it’s been here for years
I will not get away
It’s a trap for me
I’d rather be the prey for now
A place to be

I’m in a boat outside the river
I’m in a drop that trickles inside
I’m in a forest but I’m not lost
I’m in a scene without a crime

I hardly know how to appreciate my dreams
I live alone
I’d rather be the one I’m not
Than be the one that ends the way for me
It’s dark inside my veins, the blood is rushing in
I turned the three beasts into one
And how can it be
I’m in a boat outside the river
I’m in a drop that trickles inside
I’m in a forest but I’m not lost
I’m in a scene without a crime

I hardly know how to appreciate my dreams
I’d rather be the one I’m not

And I’m recovering from an ocean of emotions
Now the ocean’s back for me

Track Name: Fairy Tales
Sit in front of me and look into my eyes
I want to share with you a story
We haven't been so clear
About some things we did
A courageous thought begins to crawl
Inside of me
Still something's missing, and I can't really put my finger on it
We made it look so real
That no one could reveal
Fairy tales are not meant to be broken
And I know the dreams you have
Are keeping you alive
While my conscience lies inside a chamber
Facing this experience by itself, alone
We live our life too long
Consuming nothing, but memories that shortly won't be remembered
Trying to get a hold, trying before we're old
Still it’s a mystery to me these broken souls
They’re driven by a force that somehow they could no longer manage
Free dreams to us all, yet we're sleeping on the floor

And soon we’ll take a bow
Our stupid smiles will melt upon our faces
Like a teardrop falling
Free dreams to us all
Yet we’re sleeping on the floor
