Track Name: No Need To
Don’t mind me, I have to go
Just let me, I need to know

No tears please, I told you so
Don’t mind me, it’s my time now

Try to be my friend, try to be nice
Please, don’t disturb me, I’ve thought of this twice

It’s late now, I have to go
Please listen, it’s my last show
Track Name: Gifts
Your chance to be / a gift for me
Show me your / show me your place

I’d like to go / where no one goes
I’m coming out / coming out now

Try me, try me
Try to be, try to see, why me

The air is thin / it’s creepy thin
I cannot breathe / cannot see here

A waste of time / my precious time
I’m strolling back / strolling back home
Track Name: Paradox
In a changing stasis, my own paradox
I sit around unmoving, lost in my own thoughts

Times that we have passed, things are yet unseen
I travel through my shadows, lost, somewhere in between

Now, I should have seen my paradox
Should have seen it come around
You should have known

I view far off places, yet nothing do I gain
I look back upon my life, and I remember pain
Track Name: Silence
Thoughts from the past,
unsettling sadness
Makes me wake up with fear,
and I gaze around the room

There’s sounds of birds
but it breaks into silence
as dead as a grave
I’m out of control

A tiny streak of silver light,
lays its magic on my pillow
A tiny streak of magic light,
makes me tremble through the night

All I perceive is darkness,
visions which confuse me.
See you through the night,
see you out there alone

All I’ve got is missing,
won’t you stay for the night
Let me show you the passion
made of nothing but my dreams
Track Name: A Childhood Memory
Once I heard a story, it was a story about me
I remember being hung out, for a reason I could not see

Twice I’ve had that feeling, I felt it was not fair
I remember being lonely, without a version to share

They waited for a chance to see
the fool they all would like me to be
Never someone there, next to me
it seemed to me they all would agree

I guess it was on purpose, but still they couldn’t know
The pain was so intense, no, I wouldn’t let it show
Track Name: Something New
There was a dream
I’ve kept it days and nights
We’ve shared it, seen it, been there holding tight
Tonight

Something new, don’t you feel alive
It’s like I told you, nothing changed at all

They’re all my treasures
They are out of sight
But keep on searching, you will find them all
Tonight
Track Name: Evening Star
You’ve pulled the trigger, made me dance
You’ve been a fool
Too late to get a second chance
I’ve kept it cool

I’m sorry but you’re making me
Feel real low
You waste your evenings here
Won’t you leave me alone

Seems like you never even care
of what you did
These doors are closed, the bridge is gone
You’ve burned it down
Track Name: Happy Today, Gone Tomorrow
Today I am down, I’m always down
But I’m not alone
Try to be happy

‘cause I would not dare, I should not dare
It’s awful out there
Try to be happy, all the time

What if I went, left you, ran out,
never came back again, could not return?
Just like you’ve died, she said, you could
never fail, yes I could, it’s not too late...

Oh, why is it me, it’s always me
I try not to be
Try to be happy, all the time
Track Name: No Control
Inside my head, a thousand thoughts fight for, fight for my attention
They struggle and fight each other to be on top

I can’t fight them, I’m not in control, they’re nothing but my secrets
If I only could I would most certain make them stop

Not in control, I’m left to watch my own descent
Out of control, what’s left when all spent
I can’t figure out

Late at night my favourite thoughts disappear, disappear in the tension
They scream, but get drowned and I get lost again

I can’t stop it, I am pacified, left outside the crowd
If I only could, I would most certain pull them up.

Morning rises, the first desperate thought, defeats my intention
It sneaks up behind my closed eyes and get out
Track Name: Swept Away
Far away, everyday, strangers are shot, frightened or not, I cry.
Tragedy, insanity, leave holes in the ground, strange as it sounds, I die.
I see blood tonight, in rivers of hate, someones fate
Try to realise, everyones gone, they’re just swept away

The lights go out, they’re swept away
The music stops, they’re swept away

Hope is strong, still it’s gone, tremble from fears, nobody cares, do I?
Close to fantasy, we can not believe, they’re just swept away.

The lights go out, they’re swept away
The music stops, they’re swept away
When someone cries, they’re swept away
Everyday, far away, they’re still swept away
