Track Name: We Are
Morning Light
So bright, peaceful
For a moment we are
For only one breath
A reason to care

Before it starts
Yesterday's rising up again
For a moment we are
For one second we don't need a place to be

Mid-day alert
Yesterday's rising up again
And I would say it is a good time
For a heart attack [Forget yourself!]

Clear the road for dreams
Listen to what is means [For one second!]
And I would say it is a good time
To forget yourself

Leave it all behind
With every day, for every hour that's passing by
you're wasting time, killing chances, fading out

Before we hit restart
Clear the road to leave it all behind

Listen to what it means
Listen to what it means for one second

Leave it all behind
With every day, for every hour that's passing by
Yesterday's rising up again
With every day, for every hour that's passing by
We don't need a place to be
Track Name: Let Die
understanding my design
keep fighting to breath one more breath
i don't know what got me this far
the same days are in and out, deleted out
no hope and no shining star

I'm always preached to run before it aches
deny all the colour and sound
the same days are in and out
and they keep me behind iron bars

forget what you know
all you were taught was a lie
forget, what you saw
to see clearly what eats you inside
you were down the wrong path the whole time
forget what you thought
you were taking what's rightfully mine

again
again
circles that grow on and on
and on
moving on
sick to the bone with this blame
sever the skin from the bone
explain, sustain, refrain
playing an end for this game

you think you're bigger than the mess you made
let's see you make it to the other side

all you were taught was a lie
these fucking long days, they won't die
see how they eat you inside
when nothing is left to hide

you think you're bigger than the mess you made
face what you've done, look how you're on your own again
let's see you try and make it to the other side
understanding where you're standing, your design
crossed out yourself from all emotion
nothing is left to hide
spark that sets ,the whole explosion ,a crack of light

all you were taught was a lie
these fucking long days, they won't die
see how they eat you inside
forget about it, nevermind
Track Name: Mountain
All will fall to place in due time
You should have stopped when you could read to signs
Aching for the time you earn
Crossing points of no return

Looking for a stone to bear
Looking for a smile, a smile to wear
but It all came down to a broken dream

fading to the obscene
Now you seek the one you've met
Now you struggle, suffocate
You started falling out of line
Now you're the one whose left behind

The apathy you always knew
Your faithlessness is breaking through
You started falling out of line
Now you're the one whose left behind

Now you seek the one you've met
Now you struggle, suffocate
It all came down to a broken arm
A burning bridge on a broken ground
You started falling out of line
Now you're the one whose left behind

All will fall to place in due time
You never stopped seeking a mountain to climb

All will fall to place in due time
Track Name: Preachers
Set yourself a goal
To get my commission
You take something you don't own
Depending on our backs
Our time and health
A licence for stealing our labor

You've got the nerves
You have the guts
Preaching on red lights

You are the rats
Feeding off our labor
Disturbing on first sight

Did you ever think
Of seeking permission
You take something you don't own
Depending on our backs
Our time and health
A licence for stealing our labor

You've got the nerves
You have the guts
Preaching on red lights

You are the rats
Feeding off our labor
Disturbing on first sight

Don't you ever think of moving forward
Discovering science?
Don't you want to be an astronaut
You want us all to believe
But there is more to life
Than your self-proclaimed sins

Who will make your clothes
And how will we fight for ourselves
You want us all to believe
But there is more in life
The harm is within you

As I face these walls
these defensive pavements
I look at myself, I find peace
It's something I get by myself

Now is the time to take
Beliefs that were meant to break
Now is the time to take
Something I get by myself

The harm is within you
Track Name: Wolves
None of us are special
Some of us will give it all to forget
How we become this way

But for me
Nothing but a cold freezing heart
The ghost of our lost ones
It's all our fault we all have but ourselves to blame

And for us
We all live our lives
By ourselves, these mistakes are our own

Until the wolves will take us over
With no regrets
Maybe the world is not the same
No more remorse
No second chance
Untill these words will be set in stone

This war was made for us to survive
Because our pain is all that makes us stronger
We are all for one, for all for none
Until the wolves will come and take us over

None of us are special
Some of us will give it all to forget
How we become this way
Some of us will give it all for the sun
To shine another day
It's all out fault we have but ourselves to blame

The world is not the same
We build these walls
For one another
We're living with our eyes closed
We are just hurting ourselves
For the sake of our name

The world is not the same
We bleed out wars
We cause disasters
We're killers
We're animals
We are just hurting ourselves
Hanging over the end

Until the wolves will take us over
With no regrets
Maybe the world is not the same
No more remorse
No second chance
We face our fears of the crimes we've done
We're holding back
Our ignorance
Make our amends with the rising sun

Just hunt and bleed
True wars we build
For the sake of our name and our pride

We take it back
We break our neck
In the end we just try to survive

The game os won
All for none
And the word of the wolves set in stone

We take it back
