Track Name: None Of This
Reams and reams of fancy talk
Embraces, long walks
Moments suspended in time
Poetry, easy rhymes

None of this is love, none of this ever was
None of this is real, none of this ever will (be)

What do you want me to say ?
It's not gonna change anything
Same story, same suffering
I can tide you over, so you can get better
Anyway my life will never pass faster

None of this is love, none of this ever was
None of this is real...

So much waste in so many ways
I thought we were soulmates forever
Nothing more to save, nothing more to share
'cause now we're two strangers

None of this is love, none of this ever will (be).
Track Name: Water Under The Bridge
No, you won't find out why we've been growing apart in each others wounds
The gap is widening by leaps and bounds
No, you won't find out why we turned off the spark laying deep down
Water has flowed under the bridge and now it's drowned

No, you won't find me knocking on the door like I'm stuck outside
'cause I don't care anymore, you can keep my pride
And you won't find me standing on the porch in the pouring rain
I've made no mistakes but I can take the blame

Time is running out, and I'm about to leave
I'm not going to speak
Time is running out, and I'm about to leave
I don't wanna speak to you

'cause this is the last thing I would wanna do, I'm not gonna strive
I just want my heart back and stay alive
I'm not a hungry dog who barks all night long
I'm just an angry kid, I carry my burdens along

Time is running out, and I'm about to leave
Time is running out, I don't wanna speak to you
'cause this is the last thing i would wanna do.
Track Name: Someday
Oh please, come on
There aint nothing to complain about
You're still young
You've got nothing to be worried about

So please, stay strong
You've got friends who love you
And this is where they belong
Without them, what would you do ?

Every life is screwed up
Every mind is fucked up
Every wish is fallen
Every heart is broken

Everything is here and now, don't you see ?
So maybe someday you would say that you're happy

Sick and tired of waiting for someone or something
Why can't you just be someone or do something ?

Let in a bit of light
Even if it is not that bright
Let's follow your own track
Even if hopes keep you back

Everything is here and now, it's all I see
So maybe someday I could say "I am happy".
Track Name: Wrong Time
The bright became dark
The breeze became tornadoes
Beliefs became distrust
What's happened to the good times ?

My plans get turned upside down
Like everything was collapsing
I'm afraid of missing something
Why am I falling down ?

Did I choose the wrong life, or the wrong love, at the wrong time ?
Or am I just wasting my time, wasting my love, wasting my life ?

I grew up too fast and I'm gonna grow old before I age
'cause I can't forget the past, and in the meantime I forget to live

Did I hold on to a dream, where you're still here, and still my friends ?
Or am I expecting too much from you, like every time I do ?

I grew up too fast and I'm gonna grow old before I age
'cause I can't forget the past, and in the meantime I forget to live

What's happened to the good times ?
I really lost you.
Track Name: Shed Of Lies
They told me to see the bright side
They told me to go ahead
But I've so much to hide
Then I take refuge in my shed

Usually there ain't no telling what tomorrow will bring
But everyday is the same damn day

I don't care about being pathetic
'cause I've got so much love to give
And for the first time it has helped someone

'cause behind every beautiful thing there's a bad thing
Even if we look for another way

I know what I have to do to be happy again
But I hang on to my lies
Until I can no longer conceal my sorrow from my friends
And find myself forced to break off ties

With the little hope I've left
I take what I can
Even if it's almost nothing.
Track Name: Easier Said Than Done
I have to turn over a new leaf
It's been going on for way too long
And I have to close this chapter for good

"Move on", easier said than done
Mainly when you realised that you're still hurting
And you can't even think about mourning

In her arms, I was me
In dribs and drabs, it's killing me
In her eyes, I found me
In dribs and drabs, it's killing me.
Track Name: From The Top
What made me smile now makes me sad
And what made me sigh now makes me cry
What made me shiver are just souvenirs
And all those souvenirs now taste bitter

I wish you were just a bad dream
That I'd forget when I wake up every morning
As if you never hurt me
As if you never even happened
I hate you and I'm sorry

If only I could climb the mountains
And from the top, see how it ends
If only I could jump into the waves
And never drop my feet into the grave

Tell me how to never get weary
Tell me how to feel like fish out of sea
Tell me how boredom can be a good thing
Tell me how to feel my heart beating again

If only I could climb the mountains
And from the top, see how it ends
If only I could jump into the waves
And never drop my feet (into the grave)

While others build their homes I'm wondering if I need one
While others build their lives I'm roaming in mine
While others build their dreams I'm dragging behind, without ever reaching it
I hate myself (and I'm sorry).
Track Name: Blindfolded Traveler
Landscape scrolling away
Frozen lake out of sight
Walking out on my wistful thoughts
I try to let them go

Escape beyond the borders
Infinite shape, hazy colors
I don't need to know where to go
I just need to go

'cause I'm a blindfolded traveler
and I refuse to see that answer:
"No matter which road we choose
We will always get the blues
No matter which train we take
We will always feel heartache"

Emptyness left behind
Unspoken sealed inside
I don't need to keep all these words
I try to flee like a coward

'cause I'm a misguided lover
and I refuse to hear that answer:
"There's always someone to weep
We will always feel so weak
There's always someone to miss
We will never find our bliss"

I am back home, and still alone
'cause I'm a blindfolded traveler
'cause I'm a misguided lover.
Track Name: The Hardest Experience Anyone Can Face
A long car ride to the cemetery
Cold hellos, long waitings and cold weather
Flowers are put there by my father
People dressed in black, let's start the ceremony

Everything is so fragile...

I see pain in my cousins' faces
And I see fear in my aunt's speeches
Now there's no more promises
Except keep on going with scars and scratches

Everything is so fragile...

I see memories in my uncle's eyes
And I see strength in the orphans' smiles
Now it's time to say goodbye
Is there someone to hear all my cries?

It's just one soul among many others
But that funeral is like no other

Everything is so fragile, I could be dead in a second
I'm scared... I'm scared.
