Track Name: We Part Ways
What's important now and what is not
Do you know what you got to do?
Who's gonna take your time
And who's gonna have to stay behind?

Who's your friend
When we part ways?

No matter what you do
Someone will miss out
Don't waste a single day
On the laziest choice

You always know when
The direction's wrong
Track Name: Ides Of March
I don't know how to judge your words
A siren's song or an angel's word
The sight of you makes me feel things
I think I've never felt before

And I guess that's not coincidence
It's part of a big plan where two long roads are drawn
They seem to cross somewhere; I think that one is mine
The other must be yours

But if it's my fortune to run into your arms
I ask myself why it's so hard to get hold of you
It would be so much easier if you told me "I like you"
If I knew that I am running into open doors

A tight grip - and then you say "let go"
A tender word that you just won't remark
Words of consolation - "copied from a manual" you say
And I wonder how much I'm prepared to spend on you

Like a dog running for his stick
I'd love you on the spot till the ides of March
It's just that you, although close,
Seem a step too far away

Sometimes i start thinking it will never work out
'cause I hesitate with every step that's bound to come some time
But it clearly won't turn out as I want it to be when I
Procrastinate what I think has to follow up soon -

A perfect day inside my arms
You smile at me and I smile too
I write a tune and you like it too
But i wonder what your twisted message meant
Track Name: Kony
Go and fight the evil
Without guns
Run and chase them
With posters and megaphones

Try to scare the monsters
Scare them to death
Want to watch them burn
Burn on stakes - But you lost the track

You missed it all
Missed it all
You missed it all
Missed it all

5000 miles away
A child is killed
500 feet from here
A boy snaps his neck

When all the hope is gone (And you drown in scorn)
A preacher cries (Your life's a sin)
Stumble and fall (They kick your balls)
You squirm with pain - And nobody cares

You missed it all
Missed it all
You missed it all
Missed it all
Track Name: A Guess
Can't you see that I'm all alone
Can't you even see the struggle I leaded
All the pain I was going through
When we were meant to be one
Did it matter to you?

I guess it's over
Is there still something to say?
I guess it's over
There's no need to stay

Don't you think like me? Don't you feel like me?
Absolutely needless, pain for everyone
Words cutting like knives, knives cutting up my soul
Did it have to end like this? I guess it had to

I guess it's over
I guess there's nothing left to say
I guess it's over
I guess there's no need to stay

There's nothing left to say, there's no need to stay
I'm moaning less and less; I guess there's nothing left to guess
There's nothing left to say, there's no need to stay
I'm moaning less and less; I guess there's nothing left to guess

Nothing left to guess
Nothing left to guess
Track Name: I Miss It
So far, so far away
I've been seeing all around
Shadows of the clouds
And I've been talking to myself
But the answers disappeared
And the questions came around

Where is the strengh that i used to have? I miss it
Where is the joy that I left behind? I miss it
Where are my friends that I need to survive? I miss them

So close, but too close before my eyes
I see things come insight, but they're so dark
I've never been on the ground
Don't want to lose the balance when there's no need to
I have to watch my step if i don't want to fall
Is there a rail beside my hands? it has to guide me
Guide me through the night, cause i am just too blind

Where is the peace inside my head? I miss it
Where is the dream that won't just break through?
Where is the plan that i hide in my shell (I miss it)
Is it only the cold that makes me feel bad? (I miss it)

I see my future in a tiny place inside
Is it my fear or anger that makes me go outside?
There's a force i don't obey
But it's too strong to just pass by
Too strong so i miss my life i started a few years ago and i fear the thought of losing it
Losing it
Losing it
Losing it
Track Name: Twisted Thoughts
Just creep on
Don't try to think
You won't succeed, you're petrified

You're pushing too hard
To reinvent the wheel
Or any other thing

Go with the flow, don't swim upstream
Stay on the ground, don't try to climb walls
Just be nice
And don't leave your cage

Don't leave your spot
The rope's too hard to cut
Isn't the grass green enough here

To not make you starve
Even when you stay hungry
And eager enough
To break the box

Is it made of paper or concrete or glass?
Does that even matter?
It's all just twisted thoughts
Track Name: Last Days Of Summer
Smells of dark; scents of cold, shiver and rain
Not a new thing, they don't blow my mind
But the breeze blew them away

Make you shiver, make you freeze
Waking you when you're up to sleeping
Rustling of leaves in that stormy late afternoon scenery
Or to say it easily: We're looking straightaway into the storm

So cry for the last days of summer
And look back to the happy days you had so far
Tell me you like this new way of life
While you're trying to warm your legs from the chilly wind
Track Name: A Rainy Day
I don't know
What to think of you
And you say "what's wrong?"
You won't get it soon

As I say to you that I'm in a bad mood
And as I pray that you won't answer me back
You ask me how I'm doing, I make something up
To get rid of you
Before I say something that I would regret

As I imagine you in front of your screen
Plead for my attention, beg for me to stay
Acts of desperation on a rainy day

Another day
The same time

It's that one message that drives me insane
An invitation that I'd like to decline
You say you're flabbergasted but i won't ever buy
A single word from you
And I risk a glimpse at the top right

Laughing into stitches reading out your words
I try not to enrage you while urging you to stop
Those pointless conversations on a rainy day

Frantic dogs
A flooded street
Racing cars
A thunderstorm

Your overbearing voice
I hear say "what's wrong?"
I hear say "what's wrong?"
I hear say "what's wrong?"

And you ask "what's wrong?"
And you ask "what's wrong?"
And you ask "what's wrong?"
And you ask "what's wrong?"
Track Name: Cruel
When the drops of rain were dripping down his face
His legs grew heavy and everything felt sore
With the tramway lights gone in the haze he swore and made offensive signs
Sat down and wished he'd never had to go

He longed to be a dauntless man
But the gang downtown prooved to him he's not
'cause when he tried to raise his voice
Everything they heard was a stuttered "don't"

In the evening he wandered through the streets
Of the suburbs where it's peaceful, quiet and calm
Right there he saw a gang race up the road and realized
It's him that they were looking for

He tried to raise his voice
But everything they heard was a stuttered "don't"
He always longed to be a dauntless man
But the gang downtown prooved to him he's not

And then he asked himself, "Am I really such a fool
To let some stupid people spoil my day?
Why did I talk myself into being such an easy prey
Who cries how life has always been so cruel?"

So he said,
"My time is yet to come
But I'm sure that yours is gone"
Track Name: Time To Overcome
So as we're walking through the sand you start to complain
So disturbing, so tiring, the hell on earth
A wave completes your fabulous mood
Do i look like the wizard you're looking for?

No, you must be mistaken, no no...

Look at the stars below
Look at the waters flow
Look at the flowers grow
Can you hear me?

It's time to overcome

So you wash your dirty hands, damn, the soap does crazy dance
Don't you think that brainwash isn't good for you at all
Oh, it doesn't matter though, 'cause your life is going on
Fill your hands, go back to work, like you used to years ago
Oh, what a crazy world

Does it matter, does it fucking matter?

Look at the stars below
Look at the waters flow
Look at the flowers grow
Can you hear me?

Don't you think the time is standing still for you!
Don't you think the way you go ist right for you!

Look at the blue sky
Such a shining one and a bright one, too
How the rays of light dance with few clouds
It's those striking beautiful ones i like

It's time to overcome
It's time to overcome
Don't you think the time is standing still for you
Track Name: Echoes
In your eyes I'm just a pickpocket who tries to steal your heart
In your mind I'm not worthier than the beggar on the street
How can I listen when the only thing that comes from you's disdain?
If you asked me I couldn't tell you why I'm wasting all my time on you

If you're happier without me then just try and let me go
But I'm sure that this is not exactly what you're gonna do
I don't mind, I'm prepared to see you on the balcony
Waving hands, yelling at me, fiercely trying to get me back to you

I don't think you'll be pleased to see that everybody knows
You thought no one would notice but it echoes through the night
Your cry

I don't think there's anybody left to sort out your messed up state of mind
I don't think there's anybody left to sort out your messed up state of mind
I don't think there's anybody left to sort out your messed up state of mind
I don't think there's anybody left to sort out your messed up state of mind
Track Name: Wait
Leave this place you said to me

Nothing ever happened here

Time is running out

It's wasted and it's gone

Nothing's been attained
Nothing but restraint


They will never understand

Or get behind what's going on
Most just ask what's wrong
Frown, then turn away
Drown in waves of drone
And well-intended words


But I am still

The car just rushes on

Straight into the wall

They told me not to wait


Wasted opportunities

So much chances came and passed

Sitting on a train
I dream of what will be

When everything's achieved

When there is no more then


Slumber on

There's nothing you could do

To erase the feel that
Time's running out


And all we do is wait, wait, wait [4x]
