Track Name: Modern Squalor
Oh, there are days when I get that feeling
Confused, in a place so dark I won’t feel the Sun’s healing
So many questions, not a single answer
I am in what feels like the middle of one cold winter
Sometimes when I wake I wonder
Where it is that I am heading to
I sometimes feel like it is all so still
And the sound of silence so deafening I cannot hear
I want to scream out loud
Life’s so full of ups and downs
It’s so easy not to take notice of the sun
When you’re down
Then there are times when I wake and I wonder
Wherever it is that I am heading to
I somehow feel like it’s exciting
That today’s ending still unwritten, it’s up to me
I want to scream out loud
Life’s so full of ups and downs
Track Name: Andromeda
Som in en dröm fann hon sig jagad
någonting höll henne i ett sån’t grepp.
hon ville helst fly
hon kom sej loss, men flög rakt i en sörja
någonting fick henne att stanna upp och låta dem komma
ingen visste, vad som hände sen
varje dag gick hon och drömde
hon ville höras men rösten höll ej, så hon gick och teg
ingen visste, vad som hände sen
hon försvann lika snabbt som solen kom
förläget stod de kvar och brändes i hettan
hade aldrig trott att hon skulle ha fått nog
men så var hon ändå stark som få
skogen stod I lågor
solen likaså
och himlen
och havet
och älven
och månen
dom stod så snopet och brändes I skogen
med hjälp utav solen
och himlen
och havet
och älven
och månen
Track Name: Belong
Hey, your addiction is so sweet
Your regression so complete
I'm sure these scars don't lie
Hey, your secrets are not lost
Hidden faces come to roost
but I'm blinkered as I turn for home
And you're still answering my questions
But I'm still questioning your answers
But it won't be long
Til we belong
til we belong
Hey, let's explore your fantasies
Let's embrace the lost cities
That enshrine your empty dreams
But I still can't figure the questions
That I got when you gave your answers
But it won't be long
Til we belong
til we
Tried to put the fire out
Tried to put the fire out
Tried to put the fire out
Track Name: You Make Our Company Strong
This world
A calculated blur
Are they sleepless?
For it’s shining with weakness
They defined double standards of all kinds
A response of shattering nonchalance
There is a special placeIn hell they say
For those that don’t
Show a helping hand
in this world
‘I’m a feminist’ she hurled,
‘only trust though in men to have the know how’
But there is a special place
In hell they say
For women that don’t
Help each other out
Will it ever fall?
Will this world ever learn?
Will it ever fall?
Will this world ever learn?
This world can go to hell.
This place, of their own disgrace.
This world, can’t it be felled?
Cause after all, we all know they won’t stand tall
Will it ever fall?
Will this world ever learn?
Will it ever fall?
Will this world ever learn?
Track Name: Wrecking Ball
Hey you
It's time
And with feet off the ground I'm never letting go
I made a promise to
always let you choose
And now lights faded, outright jaded
And as fate now starts to end this play
Let's just say that this tale was for you
Stand up now, we're starting now, to look back in time
Eyes met the simple things, who would've known
Not a tragedy in waiting, just time well spent
No rush or endurance, our place in history
It feels like, we're all going (I know that it's true)
Down the same path that we all once came
So sit back and enjoy the silence
Because this much is true
Because I promised you
It's all for you
Torn earth and scattered skin
Teardrops of burning ink
Ice cold remains, no seas and no say
But as the sirens take us, don't give up on hope
What picks us up to our new realm
So here is the new
Stay together
What'll we do?
Are we feeling better?
as forever begins
and it turns to blue
This much was true
Because I promised you
It was all for you
Track Name: New Buzz
There it goes
Washed over by guilt so strong
Wonder if I’ll die
Reality saves though we’re still breathing
Shame on himHe took us for a swim
Shame on me I should have known to fear the sea
This jewel, a worthless piece
This jewel only sees the light for a treat
With warmth, they were there to deceive
With care, they shaped a mistreat
This jewel only sees the light for a treat
Don’t make a fuss
Don’t scream or cry ‘hush hush’
High heads and smiles
‘Cause this was the deal alright’
With strength, it was built to leave
With care, it built a life complete
This worthless piece of jewel…
Track Name: The Slide
So diplomatic
Talk away from the bone
Conventional wisdom
Buzzes round like a drone
Black lines rise fast
And the credit's deserved
Our power is absolute
Let's order another trip for home
I'm not making a stand
Because the world revolves around me
I'm not standing in line
I'm barring the door for sanctity
I'm not spreading the wealth
I'm joining this club of regality
I've not a care in the world
I'm building a kingdom just for me
These loans are forever
The figures roll fast
Our statues of terror
Will take back what's ours
As we slide up to the bar it feels these laws were made for me
Drink our winnings until the jealous get hit by reality
Selling these shares, this fraud, these arms, to fund our spree
(Don't answer)
Line up our wheels, inject our joy, we're good people
(Please turn back)
when everything breaks, we'll turn to sand, we'll find our dreams
(it's all gone)
when we look back, the pigs will wallow, they can't achieve
I'm not making a stand
Because the world revolves around me
I'm not standing in line
I'm barring the door for sanctity
I'm not spreading the wealth
I'm joining this club of regality
I've not a care in the world
I've not a care in the world
Why should I care in this world?
Track Name: An Apology
It started so well, played the fool once again
No question unanswered, no queries remained
Those sheltered nights in are locked in my brain
and the same for the laughs when we dropped out again
But i couldn't understand the brushing away
And i didn't guess I could be to blame
I always thought the jury was wrong
So through dimmed highlights let's just say
It was only to waste time
A cheap fix and then she was out of sight
It was only to waste time
And I'm sorry I didn't do everything right
And this fog of delusion kept gripped through the night
If the intention was good then it wasn't too bright
These stupid mistakes were repeated again
and the cold was past on to make memories end
And this cage that I'd built fit snugly for two
And visiting hours were always misused
Nobody found out and that was the plan
An escape route was made and it was easy to run away
It was only to waste time
A cheap fix and then i was out of sight
It was only to waste time
And I'm sorry, I was losing my mind alright
And I know I said it wouldn't happen again
Lost sight of all reason, an end to an end
Cashed in on freedom, crashed out and burned
peace unmaintained as the mistrust returned
No gifts, no care, just a bump on the stairs
a temporary respite, doors opened again
When the fire came back one message was sent
And I tried to, I tried to
I tried to care
It was only a waste of time
No cheap fix and we were glad to be out of sight
It was only a waste of time
And I'm sorry, I know I was out of line
Track Name: Reek
Give me a reason
a relic of my own sovreignty
In A tumbling past
She took control, she reeked of you
This bar is sedated
It's lights flicker out with no respite
I'm just telling the truth
We all know here
She reeks of you
You stumble out the door, fall faster
than your hands can move
Your grazes unrestrained, but the help will
Get you through
This shambles will move on
The circus will work its way through town
And as we are here
We'll work it through
We'll laugh and cheer
You'll see what you've lost now
All those empty seats by your side
When your future returns
They'll look right in
they will not burn
Turn around
turn around
This path
is new
Try to reclaim us
Try to face us
try to reclam us
try to reclaim us
Try to, try and we'll get you through
A relic of my own sovreignty
In A tumbling past
She took control, she reeked of you
This bar is so jaded
It's lights flicker out with no respite
I'm just telling the truth
We all know here
She reeks of you
