Track Name: Sacks on our Backs
SACKS ON OUR BACKS
Same problem different day, we keep carrying these sacks on our backs
not pulling our looks up concentrate on what's mine and myself
border is no strange word here, do you still mean what you say ?
do you believe what you mean, do you for real?

every night that I walk, in the night i saw, you, you, you..
every night we destroy, what they try to teach me for anyhow ?

Same faces hiding masks, they raise u up then shoot u down
filling your insides with doubt try to find their face in the crowd
nobody thinks he is a type don’t hurry up to show all your cards
tempting but will it pay off , are you for real?

every night that I walk, in the night i saw, you, you, you..
every night we destroy, what they try to teach me for anyhow ?

Staring on the sidewalk of the moon, lovely strings of golden and soon...

Same problem different day, we keep carrying these sacks on our backs
not pulling our looks up concentrate on what's mine and myself
border is no strange word here, do you still mean what you say ?
do you believe what you mean, do you for real?
Track Name: Like a Machine
LIKE A MACHINE

break, this is like a machine
If you’ll be brave you’ll see nothing but real
when you are down you can’t know what expects you
but if you’ll fight it the right thing will embrace you

every sorrow you have done
the time wont let it Kick me numb
But if you know the time has come
you better run you better hide
cause no one will save you from your past
no one makes the first to last
being here is being true if it’s me or if it’s you

Break we are like the machines
With grains of Sand between their clockwork Teeth
we can be proud and not see what expects us
but if we’ll fight the right thing will embrace us.

Ride upon the pavement avoid all closing walls
nothing that you plan wont help to fill the void
and it’s hard to see ahead and the writing on the wall
you better see that i’ve been giving you all all all all.

break, this is like a machine
If you’ll be brave you’ll see nothing but real
when you are down you can’t know what expects you
but if you’ll fight it the right thing will embrace you
Track Name: Two
TWO

Rhythm is no secret to me
i am keeping my time for you, see
all i was and what should ever be
i am trying to base it on it
i assume the sympathy
doesn’t come easy for you dear
i’ll try not to take it personally
but i warn you i don’t find it funny.

I am Trying to base it on it..

Put some pepper in your step
hold your horses before cashing your chips
on the bright side any time day or night
over stretch our generosity
dial it back, your pushing me
don’t block my view i would like to see
Since i’m not anyone else to keep
i am choosing to dance with you dear

I am Trying to base it on it..

Rise into a place you are
and no matter how far you think the stars are
Try to reach the stars above
and no matter how far you think they are..

I am Trying to base it on it..
Track Name: Shut Up
SHUT UP

We are the ones to shut i up
Shut it up and not a day too soon
And if i’ll see you coming up
i’ll be crazy not to stop them fools
We are the ones to make it up
make it up for all the mess you’ve made
I don’t want to shut it up
I am tired of what you’ve been wasting

We’ll be the ones to shut it down
be the one to shut it down for good
nothing to do against the flood
we’ve been tearing down our dams too soon
who will be the first to drown
drown together with the mess we’ve made
no it’s not an easy task
Looking for the last piece of dry land..

We are the ones to shut i up...
Track Name: All i Ask
ALL I ASK

All i ask is the light to come in
get away from the pail screen light
nothing more to add on it
it is time to go deeper
All I all I

Ne yehayeha Na ahahah

oh please dig into my mind,
pull out every piece of data
pushing buttons, made me mad
lets do something that really matters
Ne yehayeha Na ahahah
Track Name: Eyes Headphones
EYES HEADPHONES

we are not the heros, if we’re coming nearer
it just means we’d like to make it right
bring ourselves together don’t deserve a medal
walk into the light.

sleeping with headphones on, to emergency sounds
pain is leaking through tears and eyes
if i’m coming through, no there is no need to hide
shinning through dusty cracklings in your favourite sky

we are not the heros...

remember when? nothing seems like we recall it
is it wrong is it right, do you care?
but we’ll survive, the desire is upon us
spinning wild hand in hand again..

sleeping with headphones on...
Track Name: One Shot song
ONE SHOT SONG

i'm the doughtier of the sky
sitting down drinking wine
your just sitting on a hill
raising balloons in the air
if i'll try to see it through, i am no one decidable too..
but it is my eyes and yours
crazy i am crazy
going round and round waiting for you
crazy going crazy i am feeling so blue

i am the one saying goodbye
walking down to young to sing a lullaby
feeling fine rising up the elevator to the sky rising by
making fun for all the small things that i find..
lalalal
Track Name: Sing a Song
SING A SONG

I’d like to sing a song for you, but i don’t realize
what you’ve been waiting for what are you waiting for
i realize nothing to say your are the one to
what shalli say
Put your self up and reach the sky you are the one to say goodbye
to many days have passed me by till no words come to mind what are you waiting for
what are we waiting for, i realize nothing to say...
Track Name: Sleep Alone
SLEEP ALONE
i like to sleep alone,
but only if i know there someone there
i am happy on my own,
but only if there’s someone holding hands
and If i am seeing true
i know i’ll be, rather be my self
but if i am seeing you,
i wish to only be with you all day,
Every day

The reason your alone,
is not because theres no one by your side
the loneliness and gloom
together they bite piece of mind .
Collide into a mess
cause i don’t wanna be the first to blink
but once we cut the ropes
anything can become real.
Every day...
Track Name: Pis The Wis
PIS THE WIS

This is only a chance
Better stop to make amends
if you’ve already sinned
change your luck by changing scenes
we’re all running to the trees
wont go back to where we’ve been
bring it up to match our dreams

It is time to look around you
elevate the trust in what you do

rumour has it that you’ve won
picking up what i put down
heavy heads that carry crowns
searching to find what you’ve found
celebrate your finest hour
guess i’m preaching to the choir
i’m behind you 101

It is time to look around you
elevate the trust in what you do
it is time to look around you
I have seen the light upon you
Track Name: The Ending
THE ENDING

You are gone and there is nothing left to keep
all alone, it’s hard cause my pain feels so deep
night and day my, gloominess swallowed me whole
I lay awake, follow me to rabbit hole

I know it’s true
you did me a favour but i’m still missing you
what shell i do
my heart lay down open but you come running through

The east and west will never meet so do your best
A wooden leg supporting my poor limping head
It is fine Although i think about you all the time
and if i say i don’t then i am just a liar
I know it’s true...
