Track Name: Desultory
I see you're doing your best to still stand up straight
And I wish I had a plan to lift some of the weight
But I've been struggling with whom to address and oppose
While the collapsing is coming in even though the doors are closed

You sound so desultory when you say it isn't all about the money
Well, what's it then about?
My talk might be cheap and far away
But I'm just afraid you might give up on yourself

Alright maybe, maybe I'm all wrong
But you seem to be so comfortable with your face down in the mud
Covered in excuses, in shallow complacence
Is this how you imagined things to be back then?
Track Name: For A Second
Dying strength on dying days
Evolution on the run
Hours pass in different ways

A common destiny and fate
Separate the sun and light
I'm trying to listen up
To wasted seconds
To seconds that are left for us to breath

And when the hand that feeds stops making friends
With those who pay my check
A pile of wrecks in any case
The world on top

Writing down all we have to say
Though we fuel the fire
For the purpose of
Fighting clouds just another day
Though we fuel the fire
And we watch it burn

I got more energy to lose
Way less happiness to feel
"a little dying"
I listen up
To wasted efforts
To items that increase the sympathy

A spark of laughter in between our whole reality
Donate improvement to the ghost!
What would you give to breath at last
In a fistfight with yourself
Good opportunity
Track Name: Headwind
“May you be damned wind”, she said, resigning and quiet
It has been steadily blowing towards her head
Day by day, night by night
You packed your bags while I wished for words to say
Sometimes you need to feel understood rather than okay

Some of the hopes we learned to stand on cracked down below our feet
And now you sweep them off the city streets
Is it worth the stay, is it worth the effort of
Forgetting who you claimed to be?

For now we'll sweep it off the city streets

“Screw this town!”, she said, her throat had gone a little sore
“It is obviously no longer in our hands anymore!”
Sick and tired of a repetitious small town's safest ways
Of being tied to causal chains

Looking back on years of bitten tongues
Hasn't it been way too long?
Could you give me room for just one more mistake
Cause I wanna get at least a little closer to knowing things for sure
Track Name: When All Else Fails
Once it used to be so hard
For us to calm down
Now it seems we struggle to feel
Anything at all
The resolutions torn apart
The arms are open wide
Willing to embrace any little smile

For how much
How much longer can you keep the doors locked
How much louder can you turn the headphones up?
How many
Many more cords are there left to cut
'Til the pattern finally falls apart?

Do you remember?
I told you not to worry, you told me not to care
I couldn't find the glory in all the drinks we shared
And I didn't feel like digging any deeper down from there

When all else fails our talk will too
Our plans unveil as we pursue
Track Name: These Open Eyes Are Still In Denial
Inside the whole ignition
Is there any choice of view today
Inside the patience after all...
And after all that has been said
Brighter lights to the billboards on the street
Shallow words and a chasing threat
Might get the whole ship burning
Nothing is worthless, words last anyway

Lies are killing time, facts and memory
All innocence in reverie
Dangling down the chord
Lies are killing time, facts and memory
While blindness keeps frightening... hearts! integrity!

A voice calling for redemption
Worn identities indefined by grace
Hollow fists aching for attraction
The taste as usual at the same price
So give me ties for a moment
Let complexity die just once more
To get the whole ship burning
Nothing is worthless, words last anyway

Fear to the anxious faces down the street
Gasping for air
So what's the fucking problem, take a logic
Viewpoint by its hand
Track Name: Safe And Sound
The knees are wounded, intention's grounded
Somehow pain induced the answer
Somehow pain induced the answer
Are we tourists in hectic cities?
Somehow pain induced the answer
Somehow pain

Fixed the flattened tire on the busiest highway
Changing the lane off these obsolete traditions
Believe or be left out in the darkest night
Frozen to death on this trampled path

Changing how it used to be
Watching safe from far afield
Constant anxiety
On common base

The knees are wounded, intention's grounded
Somehow pain induced the answer
Somehow pain induced the answer
Are we tourists in hectic cities?
Somehow pain induced the answer
Somehow pain

Released from rattling chains pushing faster and further
Haste the day for each second after second
On the run chasing heartbeat after heartbeat
Frozen to death on this trampled path

Changing how it used to be
Watching safe from far afield
Constant anxiety
We retain the perfect shield

A perfect world to fake integrity
Am I still used to keep coherence
Can you feel the comfort of weak and lonesome sounds
All the friction I'll be losing with noises right around
My head surrenders its fight for cause
The shoes might hurt but the way is worth it
It will assure all questions
Maybe it won't
Shut the doors tonight just to calm the sound
Track Name: We Brought Our Files
Let's rasp the rust, let's rasp the rust off the old stories
Let's settle all for something more than the words that failed before
As the strain hit I fainted, it's so easy to hold on to what you know
When it's so hard to stay in control

Of all the doors I've opened
This is the one that got me the furthest from home
You leave your footprints anywhere you'll ever go
It took me quite some time to know

Let's rasp the rust, let's rasp the rust off the old stories
Let's settle all for something more than the words that failed before
As the flame lit I saved it, I recall every single word
For those I owe you more than I can say

Of all the doors I've opened
This is the one that got me the furthest from home
You leave your footprints anywhere you'll ever go
It took me quite some time to know
I owe you big time for the sheltered floors and the records in my mail
The single thing that never fails
Track Name: Bitterness
A consequence too difficult for now
No regret about this flattering absence
Easily
Caught targets to expect
I feel a bit
Comatose of these facile talks for now
Shallow eyes keeping contact on advice
Take control!
Keeping honesty

Something lost affinity in the inside of our eyes
Are we stuck in relativity of both our lives
Can we call it operative
Can we tear the borders down
Can you be half that proud today
Eventually?

Time's a damn good thief it
is always slipping out of hand
Heroic death on concrete
Common incidents

Tired minds just watch the shadows fall
To take the price of latency
Easily
Caught targets to expect
I feel a bit
Comatose of these facile talks for now
Shaking hands strive for a different face
Take control!
Keep intensity
Track Name: The Eternal Headache
A big mouth on fragile feet
As long as there is talk there's no defeat
You sing these songs to anyone you know
With all the conviction it might take

And that's about all that it takes
Call me envious, call me observing
Call me anyway you please
What an easy choice to make
When it's anyone or you
When it's consequences you won't have to feel

At least not for now

A fast pace on fragile steps
A big spender deep in debts and drugs
You require more than you would ever give
Aspiring to higher aims
Track Name: So Insecure
Illuminated roads
Leading to innocence
This city's safe, this city's grey
Blind and blinded by the light

A million nails
On the sidewalk of this busy road
Just a step, another step
Another bloodstain on the clouds

"Thanks that you mentioned
This life so insecure
I thought we've been the heroes all along!?"
These reckless egos
And fear of the unknown
Illusions and all wisdom
Tied to the ground

Just a little
Interest in faces all around
Just a little patience for an
Epiphanic thought
Chant of logic!
Wealth of all our hearts
Track Name: Concept Lives
I'll never give up
I've never been there
But my fingerprints got captured
Is my nose still broken?
Seeing distance and feeling the eye
Brake just for a cure

The lines are drawn and I'm their slave
That's my childhood and my grave
Burry my integrity
To build a home and plant a tree
Breath right in, I'm holding out
'Til my needs are accordingly
Open arms for priceless taste
Expecting a legacy

They've got a barrel
You got your bombs and
I've got a gun in front of my eyes!
Is my face still smiling?
Seeing distance and feeling the eye
Brake just for a cure

Please take a seat at the end of the wall

Chasing cars and wasting dreamworks
Usual raised fists
Broken elbows run out of stock
No flow just ebb
I'm used to the nail in my eye
Worthless is just this taste
I am used to exhaust my lungs
Faith no face
My face got no faith but a matter in town
Usual taste, no daylight around

Slow down a mistake will calm us all
Unfortunately
Breath in a mistake will calm us all
At the right time
