Track Name: Stay For
stay for

to all the black horizons
you blame for all the pain
i got it all figured out so well
got an a in planning myself

nothing’s lost
finding everything you want
it’s all here in the same place
should be in my arms

you‘ve got nothing to stay for
neither do i
got it all in the same place you want it
give me something you like

held down wars
finding home in a stranger
within my walls
i give love to who may ask

you‘ve got nothing to stay for
neither do i
got it all in the same place you want it
give me something you like

you want it straight
i want it over
you wanted blame
i wanted clover
you wanted strange
i wanted a safe place

you wanted calls
i want to call it
you want to fall
i won’t fall for this
(but) i might

how sure should i know
how sure should i love (someone)
Track Name: 2151
2151

still i chew on your lines after all these years
never found anyone else like this
bedding was shared and talk was bliss
now everything even your rants are missed

you told me to change
now i am everything else

preaching at nights
when your church is lit
the scientist knows how the clockworks tic
fed up using the same new sheets
life in a room that noone keeps

she called you a sub
no reason to duck out

little do we know
about anybody’s heart
little do we see
what everybody needs
little do we know
about anybody’s heartache

sleeptalking nights
you are known for words
tried to arrive
now a heart’s in thirds

fed by a mouse in an attics mouth
our father never took us out

on every stage
you are everyone else
Track Name: Trains
trains

something went wrong
in her daily hell
we made her believe
that we care for her

and she hits the trains
packed with her gold
and all her mistakes
are watching her go

something went right
in his shrinking life
not counting too much
let powers decide

and all he had to do was call
numbers known from younger years
all we had to do was to haul him
all we had to do was

carry less to stay alive
the things that you’re trying to keep
will just weigh you down
rest your feet
light on the ground
let your weakness be strength to me
Track Name: Pull
pull

7 years under your spell
why we would not talk
cause i can listen
and i can change

7 years under your curse
why we would not turn
into something we want
something we love

and i am
tied
tied to a stone
i feel my feet
pulled down
pulled down
pulled down
pull me

tight
tight to your soul
i feel your hands tied
tied
tied
tied to me

7 years under your curse
why we would not paint
with colors we like
in pictures we dream

7 years under this curse
why we would not faint
cause the air is so thin
so thin
Track Name: The Day
the day

promises astray
you will never find home
this is what they say to us

split before we bond
if you don’t feel
then theres no need to
hold the pose
at all

our eyes wide shut
our windows blown

all i wanted from us
to learn to let go
all i needed to stay
just for the day we had

promises asleep
we will never wake those up
this is what they keep from our hearts

split until we bond
if we don’t feel
then theres no need to rush
nothing’s in stone
for now

our eyes wide shut
our windows blown

all i wanted from us
to learn to let go
all i needed to stay
just for the day we had
