Track Name: Icarus/Dive
Flying high,so high...

Father,father,I'm alone,
look,I'm challenging the dawn.

Father,father,I'm alive,
done with flying,time to dive.
Track Name: Everybody knows
You were living like an outcast,
you were living in the cold
and you knew you didn't fit in
since you were three years old.

Everybody knows,
everybody knows now,
everybody knows,
the secrets of your soul...

And you try to make it normal,
yeah you die to make it work,
but this roleplay comes to nothing,
they don't really wanna talk.

Everybody knows,
everybody knows now,
everybody knows,
the sickness of your soul...

Your daddy didn't know you
and your mommy didn't care
and you had so many brothers
but you didn't have no friends.

Everybody knows,
everybody knows now,
everybody knows,
the secrets of your soul...

They are ready to forgive you
for almost anything you do,
but you see,this place is brutal,
it's not made for kids like you.

Everybody knows,
everybody knows now,
everybody knows,
the sickness of your soul...

Once you said it doesn't matter
if we couldn't make it right.
No,you said,it's not important,
we're all servants to the night.

Everybody knows,
everybody knows now,
everybody knows,
the secrets of your soul...

So you chose to turn to water,
yeah,you chose to be a tree
and you're rooting on the mountain,
always silent,always still.

Everybody knows,
everybody knows now,
everybody knows,
the sickness of your soul...

Everybody knows...
Track Name: Mr. Walker
Mr Walker
lives underwater
he was born to
be forgotten

Worships Father
but hates his mother
cause she compares him
to his younger brother

Who's neat and dainty
has a perfect lady
who will soon provide him
with a perfect baby

With no tommorow
rage,lies and sorrow
bitter compensation
for the time we borrow

Ms Johnson
says "life is awesome"
tries to hide that
she's so lonesome

Working harder
than her boring husband
while she reads books
on self reliance

With no expression
and no exception
she becomes the victim
of the situation

She wants to leave them
she can't forgive them
but she feels so empty
when they don't need her

We're the people
mad and crippled
nothing easy
nothing simple

We don't need treatment
it's a dark commitment
and we're somehow happy
in our incompleteness

Cause we're all broken
have you forgotten?
We may look normal
but the core is rotten

And we want fire
it's our one desire
it gives us thrills
that we can't denie
Track Name: Glimpse of hope
Glimpse of hope,
down my spine

Makes me yours,
makes you mine

Makes us see,
there is maybe a different approach

Turning red,
turning blue

Getting old,
feeling new

Feeling ready to wrumble
and do what it takes

And we laugh
and we cry
and we seek
and we hide
and we run
and we fly,yeah,
we're dancing away

Everyday,
it's a fight

With yourself
with the sight

of this place,
that never was peaceful and quiet

Now we melt
from the heat

that we cause
while we sleep

Side to side,
looking calm with our razorsharp smiles

And we laugh...

Treat me soft
hold me tight

With your hands,
with your mind

Through the times
that will come and we already see.

When you're there,
I get strong

If you dare
sing along

Lararah...
Track Name: All is gone
All is gone,
never getting back,

This reality,
eating your life away

Take me home,
take me to the place
I have never been.

Show me what's left unseen.

When you realise it wasn't there,
you'll be crashing back into despair.

When you realise it wasn't true,
you'll be searching out for something new.

Letting fixed emotions take control,
then you're leaning over and you fall.

All is dark,
all is turning black

This normality,
biding your time away.

Take you there,
take you to the place
you have never been.

Show you what's left unseen.

When we realise it's never there,
we won't be crashing back into despair.

When we realise it's never true,
we won't be searching out for nothing new.

Never let the shadows take control,
laugh and smoke a last one as we fall.
Track Name: This is important
We're living in sorrow,
we're living in pain.

We're living in distance
means living in vain.

Can't you see?
We're not free,
if you don't
care for me?

Can't you see,
we're not important?

Everyday,
no surprise,
in your head,
through your eyes.

Now you can never go back.

We're looking for windows,
we're looking for doors.

Some looking for shelter,
some looking to score.

Can't you see?
We're not free,
if you don't
care for me?

Can't you see,
this is important?

Everyday,
no surprise,
in your head,
through your eyes.

Now we can never go back.
Track Name: Psychostraydogs
Feeding on your hate and disapprooval
Doing so without your approoval

We just like disorder

We are always ready for corruption
get ourselves some easy satisfaction

We don't need salvation

Psycho straydogs,psycho straydogs

We're howling at the moon in all occasions
we don't really care for your directions

We don't want imvolvement

Looking for the maximum advantage
After all we're all a little savage

We don't want no progress

Psycho straydogs,psycho straydogs

Diggin' for some passion in the graveyard
the devil is awaiting on our way out

We don't need enlightenment

Make a little something out of nothing
If we never do we'll still be barking

We are getting closer...

Psycho straydogs,psycho stray...
Track Name: Six children
Six children

There is a father of six children,
the one is agony,the second one is pain.

The third one called himself a hero,
the fourth one has never been claimed.

And always on the table,
there is an empty chair.

The fifth one was a girl,
skinny and pale,she called herself despare.

Their mother called them demons.
their father called her holy.

All of them were incomplete,
dangerous and lonely.

The worst of all was the sixth one,
it couldn't choose a name.

The name that chose it was desire,
the one that ate its brains.

They're struggling and they're burning,
that is their little game.

They called it fate,they told us "stay",
we chose to run away.

Well, you should not be frightened,
we 're only gonna die.

If you dare,walk with us,
the alleys of the mind.

Now, you should not be frightened,
we 're only gonna die.

If you dare,walk with us,
the alleys of the mind.
Track Name: I see the pain
I see the pain,the pain,the pain
it's driving you insane,insane,insane.

I see the lies,the lies,the lies,
they're written in your eyes, your eyes, your eyes.

Only the night,the night,the night
is always on your side,your side,your side.

You never trust,no trust,no trust,
I wonder how you just
cannot see
that's eating you
from inside.


I see the rain,the rain,the rain
it's falling in your brain,your brain,your brain.

I watch the flames,the flames,the flames
erasing all the names,the names,the names.

Obey the rules,the rules,the rules.
The game that I choose,you choose,we choose.

It never ends,no ends
you're taking your revenge,

from yourself
and all the other ones
that you need.

I see the pain,the pain,the pain
it's driving you insane,insane,insane.

I see the lies,the lies,the lies,
they're hiding in your eyes, your eyes, your eyes.

Only the wild,the wild,the wild
will never kill the child, the child, the child,


Only the brave,the brave,the brave
will dance around the Grave.

Can't you see?
It's not so difficult,
to escape.
Track Name: Rearrange
Despite your upcoming approval,
your grace is beggining to rot.

They've already planned your removal,
the person to put on your spot.

Higher decisions are bringing you down,
stumbling and mumbling you're moving around.

Today you can choose your disaster,
tommorow you can have your regrets.
Now you must built your empire back...

Your facing neglect in the mirror,
your eyes are beggining to burn.

Making your choice like a hero,
facing the difficult turn.

Higher decisions are keeping you down,
collecting the thorns of your miserable crown.

Today you can taste your illusion
tommorow you can eat your remorse.

Now you can come to a conclusion...
Track Name: Rich boy blues
Rich Boy Blues

I got way too much money,
not really feeling the blue.

Yeah,way too much money
not really feeling the blue.

I wish I had more trouble,
if only I had to choose.

So I said to my mama,
mama I need to go.

I said to my mama,
sweet mama I need to go.

Life can't be so easy,
I feel I'm doing something wrong.

So I went down the road yeah,
down the road I went.

I went down the road yeah,
way down that road I went.

With no money in my pocket,
I wasn't carrying no name.

Well one day I got hungry,
I needed something to eat.

One day I got hungry,
and needed something to eat.

Well to eat you need money,
as you need money to sleep.

So I went home to my mama,
said mama please take me back.

Run home to my mama,
said mama please take me back.

I guess I was mistaken,
wanted to change my good luck.

Well my mama just asked me,
now,don't you feel something wrong?

Mama just asked me,
don't you feel something wrong?

I said mama what's right or wrong,
I really don't wanna know.
Track Name: Rolling on the floor
Nobody ever understands,
nobody remembers

Nothing lasts forever,
nothing seems to be in place

We're looking for another life,
trying to cross the border

Put everything in order
make the pain go away

Rolling on the floor,
while you wait behind your door

Always there to remind me
always there to give me more

So if you want to change the world,
that's your own commitment

Things were never different,
things will always be the same

We think we have another way,
we could be mistaken

We shall be forshaken,
it doesn't matter anyway

Rolling on the floor,
while I wait behind my door

Always there to revive you,
always there to give you hope
Track Name: If you really...
If you really wanna play,
try to score then

If you really care,
make a war,sacrifice,make a statement

You don't really have the right
to surrender

If they broke your heart,
use your hands,glue it back,
get yourself back on track

Try hitting your head
on a brick wall

There will be blood,
but so many things you could find out

Try and throw out the truth
from the window,

They will hunt you down,
like a wolf,like a witch,
like the sad man around

Try ignoring yourself
in the mirror

It will help you out,
to focus to the rest of the picture

How can we all lay still
while it happens

right in front of our eyes?
are we deaf,are we blind,
are we all going down?
Track Name: Old mistakes
Old mistakes,
looking to the past never again

My heart is blank,
purified for you

Slowly burn,
everything is there for you to choose

The ones to keep,
the ones to release

Now I know,
I don't look for answers anymore

Your bones are mine
they know how I feel

All this time,
smashing all my problems on the wall

My feet got tired
of walking away

Shake me off,
or take me to your darkest secret place

My mind won't rest,
keeps asking for more

All is clear,
ask me all the things I never knew

The dead were right,
the hunted were right

In the end,
there'll be nothing left for them to take

My skull is yours
give it a name
Track Name: What brings me down
You're taking a month of vacation,
to recover from your second divorce

As the cracks on your face multiply,
you discover things only get worse

Still you hope for a better tommorow,
forgetting about today

Making your moves like a robot,
live a life in all shades of grey

Is it allright to see what brings you down?
Are you the one to see what keeps me out?

And your fears all gather around you,
like a family you don't really like

Unpleasant brothers and sisters,
give you feelings you could never define

And despite your alternative lifestyle,
You're addicted to so many things

And all you can do is a nice try,
it's a chain and we are the links

Is it allright to see what brings you down?
Are you the one to see what keeps me out?

Is it allright to see what keeps you out?
Are you the one to see what brings me down?
