Track Name: Crawling
Sometimes I wonder why
I’m wasting all my time
It’s nothing but a lie
All stuck inside my head
I’m looking for a sign
To get away from here
I’m crawling in the dark
Just hoping that you’ll come and let me out

I don’t know why I got here
Fighting hard but it’s not enough
Should I stay or should I leave?
Cause I have nowhere to go
All my friends and my family
Everyone that I care about
Wake me up from this nightmare
I can’t resist anymore

And I need you here

Sometimes I wonder why
I’m wasting all my time
It’s nothing but a lie
All stuck inside my head
I’m looking for a sign
To get away from here
I’m crawling in the dark
Just hoping that you’ll come and let me out

You don't care how I should feel
I'm all wrong and it’s not my fault
Tell me how should I move on?
I’m tired of feeling alone
All my friends and my dear ones
Everyone that I love the most
Take me out from my darkness
I can't stay here anymore

Sometimes I wonder why
I’m wasting all my time
It’s nothing but a lie
All stuck inside my head
I’m looking for a sign
To get away from here
I’m crawling in the dark
Just hoping that you’ll come and let me out

Just hoping that you’ll come and let me out
Just hoping that you’ll come
Track Name: Again
The lights fade, it’s dim but clear
I grab your hand filled with fear
You pull me in closer now
While trying to find a way to say
Here we are, again
On our own, my friend
And your eyes make me disappear
You listen, but you can’t hear
I’m pushing you further now
I’m fighting hard, to try and stay
Here you are, again
On your own, my friend

I finally found you here
You've been running from your fear
Just keep moving and peer
The horizon, we can see it crystal clear

You’re far but i feel you near
I think I still need you here
Your love it brings me down
I’m fighting hard, to make you say
Here we are, again
Still the same, my friend
Here we are, again
By ourselves, my friend

I finally found you here
You've been running from your fear
Just keep moving and peer
The horizon, we can see it crystal clear

I finally found you here
You've been running from your fear
Just keep moving and peer
The horizon, we can see it crystal clear
Track Name: Closer (feat. Laura Hope)
Sitting by your side again
I'm watching you feeling so alone
With these violent scenes
Reflecting on your face
They're making me so breathless
You feel uninterrupted pain
Tell me what are you running from?
You've forgotten you can
Always count on me

So let me fill your sorrow
I’ll carry you safe to shore…

When the darkest nightmare has come
Deep inside your mind
I'll bring you closer
Bring you closer to the light
When your life is falling apart
When you feel so down
Just bring me closer
Bring me closer
Closer to your heart

We’re walking down this empty road
We don't know why did it feel so wrong?
Hiding from the deepest
Demons in our heads
They made us so defenceless
Now we're rolling like a stone
Tell me how did we lose control?
Take my hand and let's run away
From this misery

So let me be your shadow
I won't leave you alone…

When the darkest nightmare has come
Deep inside your mind
I'll bring you closer
Bring you closer to the light
When your life is falling apart
When you feel so down
Just bring me closer
Bring me closer
Closer to your heart

So let me fill your sorrow
I’ll carry you safe to shore…
So let me be your shadow
I won't leave you alone…

When the darkest nightmare has come
Deep inside your mind
I'll bring you closer
Bring you closer to the light
When your life is falling apart
When you feel so down
Just bring me closer
Bring me closer
Closer to your heart

Just bring me closer
Bring me closer
Closer to your heart
Track Name: Let's Drive Away
I have always thought to myself
Why all the good things vanish in the end
The news on TV is making me so mad
The loss of a friend
I know it better
It’s hard to forget
And now
I always have the feeling you’re with me
We’ll get inside the car and disappear
So just turn on the radio
Hit the gas and let's begin


So let’s drive away
Finding a way to see each other from behind
Safe and sound
Avoiding war from happening from time to time
From time to time
We are the change, never forget
Let’s run away
Let's drive away, we are the change, never forget
Let's drive away
Finding a way to save each other on the line
Safe and sound
Remember reasons to believe from time to time
Let’s drive away
We are the change, never forget
Let's drive away

Together we’re safe in this place
Now all the good things are starting again
And finally the news has come to pass
Acceptance of pain
It makes you better
It’s hard to forget
Somehow
I always knew that we were meant to be
We’ll get out of the car and reappear
But don’t turn off the radio

One more time let's run away
Finding a way to see each other from behind
Safe and sound
Avoiding war from happening from time to time
From time to time
We are the change, never forget
Let’s run away
Let's drive away, we are the change, never forget
Let's drive away
Finding a way to save each other on the line
Safe and sound
Remember reasons to believe from time to time
Let’s drive away
We are the change, never forget
Let's drive away

One more time let's run away
Finding a way to see each other from behind
Safe and sound
Avoiding war from happening from time to time
From time to time
We are the change, never forget
Let’s run away
Let's drive away, we are the change, never forget
Let's drive away
Finding a way to save each other on the line
Safe and sound
Remember reasons to believe from time to time
Let’s drive away
We are the change, never forget
Let's drive away

We are the change, never forget
Let's drive away
We are the change, never forget
Let's drive away
Track Name: What Are We Living For? (feat. Zene of Fight the Fade)
The good times keep running
Running away from me
A storm is coming
Can barely move my feet
The dark is rising
Can’t see what’s left behind
I’m so defeated, gathering all my fears
Is anybody listening at all?

The world is coming to the end but we don’t care at all
Cuz we were born together and we’re dying all alone
Ordinary people never wanting nothing more
Now I just wanna know
What are we living for?

The sky is burning
And nobody seems to care
This place is broken
And we never realized
The good times keep running
Running away from us
We’re so indifferent
Problems remained unsolved
We’re free to change but never wanna know

The world is coming to the end but we don’t care at all
Cuz we were born together and we’re dying all alone
Ordinary people never wanting nothing more
What are we living for?




We’re just waiting
Are we done yet?
We’re just waiting
Not even looking for anything more
We’re just waiting
Are we done yet?
We’re just waiting
Not even looking for anything more

The world is coming to the end but we don’t care at all
Cuz we were born together and we’re dying all alone
Ordinary people never wanting nothing more
Now I just wanna know
What are we living for?

We’re just waiting
What are we living for?
We’re just waiting
What are we living for?
Track Name: I'm Ready Now
I’m ready now
I’m ready now

Take a look around, tell me what you see
You don’t even know where my life has been
You can't imagine
How hard has been to get in here
Look at what I got, it's all over me
You don't realize it's not what it seems
Cuz there is no magic
I cried so much to make this real

There was no time to be okay
But finally now I can say

I don’t need to leave and say goodbye
I don’t need to hope for another life
Cuz this is where I need to be
This is where I need to be
I have no reason to find a better way
I don’t need to do just what they say
And this is how I need to live
Yeah, this is how I need to live
I’m ready now

Take a picture now, tell me how it feels
To pretend that you’re still the same as me
It’s an illusion
It’s been so hard to reach the top
Look at what I’ve done, it’s all over me
Can you see inside or just what appears
In all the confusion
I’m lucky that I got this far

This is the time to be okay
This is the game I wanna play

I don’t need to leave and say goodbye
I don’t need to hope for another life
Cuz this is where I need to be
This is where I need to be
I have no reason to find a better way
I don’t need to do just what they say
And this is how I need to live
Yeah, this is how I need to live
I’m ready now

I’m ready now

I don’t need to leave and say goodbye
I don’t need to hope for another life
Cuz this is where I need to be
This is where I need to be
I have no reason to find a better way
I don’t need to do just what they say
And this is how I need to live
Yeah, this is how I need to live
I’m ready now

I’m ready now
I’m ready now
Track Name: The Killer Party (feat. Level None)
I feel it's happening again
Now I'm asking for help
My neighbors are annoying
I don’t wanna hear that noise
My head is going to explode
I'm trying to sleep
Don't ask about my things
It makes me wanna kill ya

You don't stop bothering me
My patience is wearing so thin now
Hey, idiots! you know what?
I don’t care anymore

Don’t miss the killer party
Why don’t you go back and sleep?
We'll mess up and make you angry
You can say everything you want
Indeed we just won't give a fuck

I'm sorry I've ruined all your plans
Was it my intention?
This problem is all yours
If you can't change it all
Your ignorance it pissed me off
You are full of bullshit
I think about your life
It makes me wanna cry

Why don't you stop following me?
I can not promise I won't mess up now
Hey, fuckers! you know what?
Tonight I'll be set free

Let's get to the killer party
It's time to let the games begin
Why don’t you go back and sleep?
And let us have some fun again
We'll mess up and make you angry
You can say everything you want
Indeed we just won't give a fuck

Let's get to the killer party
It's time to let the games begin
Why don’t you go back and sleep?
And let us have some fun again
We'll mess up and make you angry
You can say everything you want
Indeed we just won't give a fuck
Track Name: Lonely Dancer
The rain is falling into the night
I’m always drowning and I don’t know why
I hear you calling out of the blue
But you don’t matter what I’m going through
Please help me hold on
It’s way too late
And I’m so cold

Show me the way to live
You are the only answer
Don’t let me fall down
Take me away from here
I'm like a lonely dancer
Don’t leave me here on my own

The night is coming into our life
I’m here still waiting and I don’t know why
Somebody screaming, you have no clue
You still don’t know what I’m going through
Please help me hold on
It’s hard to take
I’m growing old

Show me the way to live
You are the only answer
Don’t let me fall down
Take me away from here
I'm like a lonely dancer
Don’t leave me here on my own

Show me the way to live
You are the only answer
Don’t let me fall down
Take me away from here
I'm like a lonely dancer
Don’t leave me here on my own
Don’t leave me here on my own
Track Name: Wasted Heaven
I don’t know what is going on with my life
These people are insane, they’re all messed up
Ruled by money
They’re so avid

And I can see no more, there’s blood in my eyes
The place where I live, it’s so fucked up
Dead men walking
I keep running

We are powerless
Cause there is nothing left
And we are all to blame

Wasted heaven
I’ve got nothing else to say
Wasted heaven
I’ve got nothing else to say

I'm trying to find what’s going on with my mind
These demons are alive, they keep growling
It’s a nightmare
They’re so hungry

And I can speak no more, they’re shutting my mouth
No hope to survive, but I keep trying
Can you feel it?
We are falling

We are emotionless
With no solutions left
And we are all to blame

Wasted heaven
I’ve got nothing else to say
Wasted heaven
I’ve got nothing else to say
Wasted heaven
I’ve got nothing else to say
Wasted heaven

There is nothing else to say
There is nothing else to say
I’ve got nothing else to say

Wasted heaven
I’ve got nothing else to say
Wasted heaven
I’ve got nothing else to say
Wasted heaven
I’ve got nothing else to say
Wasted heaven
Track Name: Black and White
I feel something is wrong
You seem so worried and I
I don’t understand
Tell me what’s going on
I see the pain in your eyes
And I don’t know why

Solutions are in-between
You have to listen to me

You’re doing all wrong now
You’re cynical
You always think in black and white
It’s taking so long now
But keep it strong
And everything will be alright

Things don’t go how they should
You seem a little confused
About everything
You don’t tell me the truth
You never try to escape
From your empty place

Solutions are in-between
You still don’t listen to me

You’re doing all wrong now
You’re cynical
You always think in black and white
It’s taking so long now
But keep it strong
And everything will be alright

Everything will be alright
Everything will be alright

Solutions are in-between
Why don’’t you listen to me?

You’re doing all wrong now
You’re cynical
You always think in black and white
It’s taking so long now
But keep it strong
And everything will be alright
And everything will be alright (everything)
Track Name: Take Me Home (feat. Bradly Miranda)
It’s time to think about
How life ran so fast
My heart is broken
I’ve fallen apart
I’m getting older now
While missing the past
Good days are over
But memories last

Give me a reason
For this mess
For this confusion
Inside my head
Am I still waiting
For the light
But it’s never coming

Please take me home
Just take me home
These thoughts are leaving me broken-hearted
Don’t let me be where I don’t belong
Please take me home

This endless violence
Still lies ahead
We feel so tired
There’s no way back
Let’s break the silence
We’re thinking too much
We’re feeling older
But we’re still young

Give me a reason
For this mess
For the indecision
Inside our heads
Are we just waiting
For the sun
But it’s never rising

Please take me home
Just take me home
These thoughts are leaving me broken-hearted
Don’t let me be where I don’t belong
Please take me home

So help me find a way to save myself
Cuz all these thoughts are killing me
My mind is playing tricks on me again
Just let me go where I can breathe
So please take me home
Just take me home

It’s time to think about
How life ran so fast
My heart is broken
I’ve fallen apart
I’m getting older now
While missing the past
Good days are over
But memories last
