Track Name: Prophesy Anything
You try to make sense out of the chaos you have spread
And once again we'll shape our idols from the flames

He'd love to make the world spin in reverse for a day
But instead he will realize he should have forsaken

We're going to spank your buttocks until you spit your venom
The wolves are starving for bleacher flesh
You nearly forgot how secured you feel when you're home
But today you'll be dragged in the stream

A widespread rumbling is getting louder, it's time to make them pay.

Can you tell a story I don't know ?
Tie me up and I swear I won't go

As we give a fuck - we'll do as we give a fuck
Track Name: Numa
There's no way to exhale this tension, it still lingers in my bones
By any mean I wish I could let it out
It speaks from inside
And i'm afraid I can not get no sleep
No I get no sleep at all

It's been a laborious day trying so hard to contort
But in the end I think I will let it go
It's taking control
I'm getting tired, It's still out of reach
I get no sleep at all

It speaks louder every hour of every evening
and I keep forgetting - I don't,
No, I get no sleep at all

It's hiding on every curve of your slightest footprint,
and I keep wondering - I know,
It's growing in my room
And when I rest my head, I can feel its hazy embrace
I can swear I'm not alone,

But I'm still on my own
Track Name: The Wasted
Around us there is a world crawling to disaster
Raise your heart for days to come
Will we ever have the tomorrows of our days
Will you let us freeze outside ?

We're the wasted, the unreconciled,
We are one and the same
In silence we are bound and tangled by the waves
And in silence we raise

And the Shepherd watches sleepless
The herd's got blind, but it’s heading somewhere
And the Great Division has occurred,
The Lighthouse is leading us nowhere
I have turned into melting matter
A storm might come, get onboard,
Let's gather and pray

We'll hit our chests
Howling with the crimson owls,
Seeds of Anger,
Quiet murder in the snow,
I would love to redeem your soul
But there is something in my way

Would you let us freeze outside your door
We'd come back everyday

We're the wasted - the unreconciled,
We are one and the same
In silence we are bound and tangled by the waves
And in silence we raise
Track Name: Staring, Mourning, Avenge
Somewhere along the shore
There's somebody starring at
Something inside the waves
And nothing is living in his eyes

It was only whispered and it's already smothered
Nobody ever thought that we would go this far

Mourning every Monday morning
There's got to be a way
Lift me to the highest
I feel like I'm fading away

Take me out of this mess
Ocean, you'll carry my weight
I'll wait for the harvest
To come back and avenge myself

It's not written in the books I have read
It's not broken by these glorious waves
I am not sorry for the hearts that I break
Love still feeds on sorrow and pain
Track Name: A Room Full of Shadows
I used to worship the motions of dawn
But when the signs got out of sight, I shattered into words
It's colder than I thought, but I will carry on
Even if I shared your values, I wouldn't kneel at your shrine

At the end of the day
I could be gone

In my dreams I remember when I stood on the sun,
I slept on the curve of her secrets
I thought I would never stand this rhythm of silence
From the bottom of your lungs.
But I'm still here and years have passed,
It moved all around, and what lies behind -
I have seen you disappear, seen you disappear
I have seen you disappear, I almost disappeared

What's left to say,
I guess I don't look good these days
I could be wrong
Track Name: La Mer
It's always the same,
you told me so
You told me to forget you,
But you're never lovelier than when you're far away
I shouldn't wait for you
You told me so
You told me to believe it is not over but how long now,
How long now ?
I'm not so many miles away from you
What should I do

I still love you
And it drives me insane
To look away
If nothing happens I'll implode
Track Name: Homeland
For a century nothing really changed here,
In the harbor.
I miss you my homeland,
I’ve been ignoring your call for too long.

I miss the wind that heals
And the everlasting ocean.

Embrace me
So that I don’t forget I’m alive.

Meanwhile I'm stuck right there
Staring at the ceiling
Meanwhile I wait and I wonder
Where has all the love gone ?
Where has all the grace gone ?
Track Name: Bridges
Someday and somehow,
There's got to be an end to this era
And how far do I see
And how loud will it be
Until the ashes whirl to the wind

Let's act like we don't see we carry the world upon our shoulders
Bridges are going to make us whole again

This is your world, look at the window,
We are wandering in circles,
Over and over,
Your reason shall tear us apart

Let's act like we don't see we carry the world upon our shoulders
Bridges are going to make us whole again

This is your world, in motion,
We are wandering in circles,
Over and over,
Your reason shall tear us apart
Track Name: The Middle Place
I was drowsy, foolish I was
Hurt and weary, among the crowd
After a very long walk I stumbled
And I finally raised my eyes

Will you save me from the Evil ?
I'll always be grateful for what I once beheld
On this precious day
I witnessed the beauty of the road ahead

I can recall myself
And I apart
Off my wounded body
No pain nor fear
I was caught by the hand
And through the rain we both discerned a light

But will you show me how it glitters
I've been waiting for so long
No way I could be wrong
White shores never-ending,
In the springs of love I bathed

Now like all
I will struggle in this middle place
I will carry the knowledge
And the secrets of the sun
I shall walk and be patient;
On the path that will lead me to silence
Track Name: Stone Cold
Is it midnight; have I slept the whole day ?
Is it yesterday or tomorrow ?
I know these days are true,
Though they look all the same

And you promised I could save my soul
And leave this stone cold town
These stone cold faces
Yes you promised me the springs of love
But not this stone cold town
These stone cold faces

And the rumbling of whispers

Long live the king of the broken machine
We will get used to this inhuman living
Now I turned my face from the sun,
For lack of beauty I'll feed upon all your religions

And we crave for a savior
Someone who'll speak in the name of all
meanwhile I ..

Is it midnight; have I slept the whole day ?
Is it yesterday or tomorrow ?
I know these days are true,
Though they look all the same

And you promised I could save my soul
And leave this stone cold town
These stone cold faces
Yes you promised me the springs of love
But not this stone cold town
These stone cold faces

Stone Cold town with stone cold faces
This Stone cold town with stone cold faces
This Stone cold town with stone cold faces

One day we’ll get to see…
