Track Name: Comearound
you won´t believe you can hardly hear but she still does breath.

Everytime you do not come around I can see her eyes, they pop out and she wants her heart to be cut out.
And we both know when you call her name it´s because you love, you love to betray. And you play foolish games.

you won´t believe you can hardly hear but she still does breath.

Everytime you do look at a tree, all the leaves they can´t stay green. There is something about you that wants to kill. And you do it pretty well.
And we both know when you call her name it´s because you love, you love to betray. And you play foolish games.

Turn the lights off, carry me home, but don´t tell me the truth. I know that pretty much everything is gone. We lost and better sever my soul from whatever it has been bound on.
Track Name: Lights
And when you´re right,
I wanna be wrong.
And when you´re cold,
I wanna be warmer than warm.
And when you´re snow,
I wanna be the roof you´re lying on.

No offense but it´s not correct to send me home. No offense

`Cause I´m stuck in the moonlight. Who needs sunshine? We´re both brighter than lights.

And if people might say,
we´re getting to old.
Wanna be the teenage boy,
who is catching your soul.
And when my head explodes,
I wanna be the fire you´re raining on.

No offense but it´s not correct to send me home. No offense

`Cause I´m stuck in the moonlight. Who needs sunshine? We´re both brighter than lights. Brighter than lights. Brighter than lights.

And I´m stuck in the moonlight. Who needs sunshine? We´re both brighter than lights. Brighter than lights. Brighter than lights.
Track Name: Permanent Halo
Her permantent halo. Her permanent halo.
Her permantent halo. Her permanent halo.

Hang me up to sleep in a better youth, swing on your blue shoes and dance on the roof.
I don't walk with a good desire. I don't dance on a wire!
Hang me up to sleep on a lemon tree. Little by little: I can't feel.
And the early bird gets the worm. In the graveyard – he's just alone.

Hang me up to dream in a better youth. Imagine Houdini send me to the moon.
A naked punchdrunk in a beautiful mind – without a doubt, even blind.
And you've changed the color of your hair. Little by little: I don't care!
And the early bird gets the worm. I am the fool you choose to ignore.

Her permantent halo. Her permanent halo.
Her permantent halo. Her permanent halo.
Track Name: Forest
And you feel like a fox in the forest, when hunters come to hunt and shut you down.
And you feel like a fox in the forest, when hunters come to hunt and shut you down.

And you feel when you fight you are pushed aside. You´re not 23 but you always try to hide. But tonight you won´t take another ride. It´s time, say goodbye.
And you know how it feels to swim against the tide. I know you always tride to subdivide. But tonight you won´t take another ride.

And you feel like a fox in the forest, when hunters come to hunt and shut you down.
And you feel like a fox in the forest, when hunters come to hunt and shut you down.
Track Name: Pink Plastic Bag
Something is wrong, something ain´t right.
Can you see the colour shift in my eyes?
Maybe I took some sort of chemistry - yes indeed my red eyes reveal.
There is no sound in my ears, nothing I hear, too many things I see but nothing I feel.

As long as I can´t see you by my side, rain is gonna feel way to dry.
And there is nothing that could ever be right. Oh not tonight, not tonight.

Take everything I got and put it in your small pink plastic bag. This time all the words I learned won´t speak. There are too many things I see but nothing I feel.

And I crush my head when you go to sleep, splash dirt on me and decide to leave.
Track Name: The Games You Play (are insane)
I can hear you.
And I do pretty well.

Can you see me?
Of course you can.

I´m the guy who´s waiting under metall stairs for you.
Close youre eyes I will kiss your tears soon.

Remember to smile.
When my love won´t take you tonight.
Girl, sometimes we can´t choose.
You met the boy with the blues.

Girl, I need you.
So pretty bad.

But for today,
you stay in my head.

Those cried out lies will be left behind. I won´t ever get out of sight.
Get out of sight.

Remember to smile.
When my love won´t take you tonight.
Girl, sometimes we can´t choose.
You met the boy with the blues.

You can crush, you can squeeze, we will never be pleased. Too many tears make a sea and I don´t feel the need to dabble. If you need a second there is none. Carry on I don´t wanna go on like this.

Remember to smile.
When my love won´t take you tonight.
Girl, sometimes we can´t choose.
You met the boy with the blues.
Track Name: Peak Of Life
I´m here. Waiting for the peak of life.
The thing you are all talking about.
I don´t wanna be late for the good times.
The times you´re thinking about when you´re up to die.
What are you up to?

Take my hand and bring me to the place where you all are.
Take my hand and bring me to the place where you all are.

What are you up to? Can you give place to someone like me.

I tried to hold my head with both of my hands.
But it´s too heavy, all alone I couldn´t take the weight.
My whole body is crippled from the pain.
I´m loosing weight to not leave space for the bad things hiding inside of me.

I´ll take your hand and bring you to the place where I am and you don´t want to be.
I´ll take your hand and bring you to the place where I am and you don´t want to be.

You are hiding behind of me.
Inside of me you´ll only find emptiness.
Track Name: Eternity
"I´m so in love with this world."
She said and died.
Eternity.
Got hit and died by the sea.

"I´m so in love with this girl."
He said and cried.
Eternity.
Oh she is free.
Oh she is free.
Oh she is free.
Oh she is free.
Eternity.
