Track Name: Broken Glass
Broken Glass

I wish I'd feel my hands bleeding all of your colours
to paint your picture in my heart
But all I get are flickering spots
tiny pieces i try to put together

Hands to heart and eyes to eyes
a quiet moment leaving on silent feet
My memories are bits of broken glass
my memories are bits of broken glass...

I wish I'd hear your words
falling through
to hold your story in my hands
But all I get are flickering spots
wasted letters I try to put together

Hands to heart and eyes to eyes
a quiet moment leaving on silent feet
My memories are bits of broken glass
my memories are bits of broken glass...

But I try to find every missing chapter
Track Name: Borrowed
Borrowed

I stole your socks today
put them on and walked away
And I think I need your shoes as well
cause my feet are still cold and it might take a while

If there's a little room in your life for me
walk on the street, tell the people you see
Maybe one day I'll hear someone saying my name
then we'll see if it's too late or still the same

Oh oh oh oh oh oh...

You borrowed my shirt one night
took it off and walked away
Left a knowing smile under the pillow
and a blank letter between the sheets

If there's a little room in your life for me
walk on the street, tell the people you see
maybe one day I'll hear someone saying my name
then we'll see if it's too late or still the same

Oh oh oh oh oh oh...
Track Name: Moon
Moon

Spend too much time dancing
who else would have taken care?
Held my tongue
no floating river could carry me away

Under the moon and over myself
I hide between summer and fall
it's been a while now
I lost and I longed for
a safe place, that's for sure

Words get cheap and hearts so lost
it's bitter when it tastes like nothing
I might have walked the wrong way
it will take a thousand steps to get out

Under the moon and over myself
I hide between summer and fall
it's been a while now
I lost and I longed for
a safe place, that's for sure

Over the sun and under myself
I hide between summer and fall
it's been a while now
I lost and I longed for
a safe place, that's for sure
Track Name: Falling Tree
Falling Tree

She's got big trees on her mind
with no roots to the ground
So she's flying through the night
passing a million hearts
Trying to find the one that's beating for her
trying to find the one that's beating for her

Sometimes I see her walking through the park
Sitting on a magic bench
with one hand searching for another

But it's not the time yet
too many birds on her mind
she has to wait
She has to wait for the fall to come
it takes a while to leave the sky and hit the ground

She doesn't sneak in without saying a word
her hair is too busy to stand a proper conversation
She walks through green painted rooms trying to find the ground
she walks through green painted rooms trying to find the ground

Sometimes I see her walking through the park
Sitting on a magic bench
with one hand searching for another

But it's not the time yet
too many birds on her mind
she has to wait
She has to wait for the fall to come
it takes a while to leave the sky and hit the ground

Blue clouds they start raining
they start raining maybe that's the way to set her free
Two feet on the ground but her heart is beating
two feet on the ground but her heart is beating...
...too loud, too loud.
Track Name: Life in a Box
Life in a Box

I carry my life in a box
but mostly it carries me
Sometimes it hangs me up
and shuts the door on the way out

Your mouth too full to speak
your head too tired to think
But that doesn't slow you down
that doesn't slow you down

You don't stop
You don't stop
Oh tell me all your wisdom
oh tell me all your wisdom
Meaningless syllables

Bounce off the red wall
Hit me hard until I tumble
hard until I tumble

You might think I would
probably I could and I definitely should
Wait until I found
One, two, three I count
I won't ever hit the ground again
Hit me hard until I tumble
hard until I tumble
Track Name: Illusions
Illusions

Restrictions take the off my shoulders
I don't want to carry them anymore
Illusions let them disappear
you can't loose me anymore

You say all the things I don't want to hear
you say them loud and you say them clear
And you make sure that I listen
yeh you make sure that I listen

Silently I walk out the door
you've lost me once
you can't loose me anymore

You say all the things I don't want to hear
you say them loud and you say them clear
And you make sure that I listen
yeh you make sure that I listen
Track Name: Machines
Machines

How high is the hill
you look down from or are you underwater?
Underwater, underneath the water
Don't touch me

Big fat crazy machines
wouldn't believe there's much mind left
Loud, cruel, deadly machines
how come you think you're so perfect?

Live is grey my colours not yours
how come your brain guides you like this?
I might not exist can you even be sure
that you were born?

How long does it take you to fall
or is it more about reaching the surface?
From underwater, from underneath the water
Don't touch me

Big fat crazy machines
wouldn't believe there's much mind left
Loud, cruel, deadly machines
how come you think you're so perfect?

Live is grey my colours not yours
how come your brain guides you like this?
I might not exist can you even be sure
that you were born?

Unsure
Knee-deep
Tree-high
Fearful
Track Name: Marble
Marble

I have more than you think
you don't have a clue who I am
I pretend to be small
but one day I will come and take it all

But one day I will come and take it all

And take it all…

I am not just pretty inside
I'm a vamp and I'll fight
I pretend to be small
but one day I will come and take it all

And take it all...
Track Name: Piece of Cake
Piece of Cake

I spent my nights without you
I spent my nights without you

Oh yes it hurts, oh yes it hurts, oh yes it hurts, oh yes it hurts, hurts...
Illusions they crawl up on the wall
crumble and fall while I wait there and watch
And I cry, oh I cry, oh I cry, oh I cry, oh yes it hurts, oh yes it hurts…

I dream my dreams without you
I dream my dreams without you

Oh yes it hurts, oh yes it hurts, oh yes it hurts, oh yes it hurts, hurts...
Illusions they crawl up on the wall
crumble and fall while I wait there and watch
And I cry, oh I cry, oh I cry, oh I cry, oh yes it hurts, oh yes it hurts…

Words they fall unheard
from the wall like broken pictures
that hung for too long at the same place
Way too high, way too big, way too heavy
way too dark, way too loud
And I scream back at you
too much sound, way too loud - it's nothing!
Oh it's nothing
Track Name: Off
Off

Here we are
lonely ghosts
The spirits that I called during daytime
and now it's dark

Big steps
We take for us
For nothing
Cause we try to find the place
Cause we seek
Here we are

Off he goes
Off he goes
Nobody knows
Nobody knows
Off he goes

Just like you I don't feel home
it's a journey without an end
without arriving
Maybe that is what it is all about
maybe that is what it is all about

Don't send me a postcard we're way bigger than that
it hurt, yes it hurt to let you go
We held each other as long as we could
I might be there, I might be there if you come back

Off we go
No, nobody knows
Track Name: Upside Down
Upside Down

It's crazy how life goes
it's crazy how things work out
How many times have I shaved my legs
and how many times did I try to bail you out?

It's crazy how hard it is to be alone
it's crazy how I have to fight it
How many times have I been on my lonely walks
and how many times did nobody pick me up?

I try to keep myself together
but the constant beat is annoying me
I try to keep myself together
but there's nothing to do so I don't even get started with
I try to keep myself together
but the constant beat is distracting me
I try to keep myself together
but there's so much to do so I don't even get started with

Some don't want to be rescued
some of us need their made up up and downs
Some of us want to be rescued
some of us want to wake up and be clear
Track Name: White Feather
White Feather

My little secret is the pain
I am by myself
I don't complain
That's how life goes
I grow older and walk in your shoes
now that you're gone I walk in your shoes

Your love seems far away
I used to feel connected
But the bonding got loose one day
So i cry about the days we had
believe me
it makes me sad

White feather don't suffer no more
white feather I adore
White feather you're free
and deep in my heart
you're still with me

Memories are the most important thing
I feel close, so close
I remember you and you remember me
I remember you and you remember me
