Reflections 03:43
There are ghosts Keeping me awake Dim reflections They appear like dreams I should have catch Now I'm facing down a silhouette Stay until the end Stay until the end That's all I need That's all I need Distance got away from me again Time keeps racing Distance got away from me again and again again and again
I stared into the sun Just to see who I've become Waited patiently all my life What if things were fine Would you still be on my mind? Fear is all we have Choking scars on the necks Driving into the unknown I come undone Been running away again To get rid of all this pain I swear It's the only way You say you'll walk with me I'm afraid it's not that easy
Move 05:01
I've got all I need But there's something missing Believe me I have tried and god knows I have failed Leaving all my friends behind me I don't know why We dig our hole We need to find a way home I don’t know why We kill our soul We need to find a way home Finally alone In my black and white room I always keep it close My greatest hunger And the clock keeps ticking
I lost time trying to be someone I know it was a sorry sight to see A long long time ago things were clear to me I grasp for this feeling constantly Begging for some kind of solace I promise to try to enjoy this life Nagging til my head comes off I’m so alone can’t get enough Get down to my none existing self-preservation and addiction Get down to my purgatory Where all things must pass All things shall pass down to my sons and daughters Get down to my untold story Where all things must pass Secrets are making me shipwrecked I don't have any alternatives When sirens sing so comforting The great big wave waits for me
I’ll show you my frailty and drop what I have carried
Repeater 02:15
Endless time going faster Reaching for a glimpse of truth Let me slip away Dig the deepest that you master Put me down and shut me out Opened casket or closed? It's so near, but too far to reappear What's the cause of chasing pavements? Trying hard to make a list But my pencil has dried
Wolves at my presence Trying my patience Alarms with no substance Desperately builds a hole It builds a hole I let things slip away with surgical precision Nothing reaps these cold dead hands I let things turn to waste I never learn but these roots go deep Running through my family There will be trouble Believe me I've seen it And there will be hardships In times to come That made me thinking And I'm scared to admit it That I'll be better off without you
The Shivers 06:54
When you felt worse than you had shown I walked a path purely my own When desperation takes control I didn’t know better than that I feel I need some help to make me sleep And I believe I need something to help me breathe Living at the fullest And die at maximum speed I'll cross the deserts I'll do whatever it takes Living with the shivers And die with absolute fear I'll stay forever If I could just keep it here We have to sort things out Close the door we need to talk When life’s too short sometimes I’ll take the longest shortcut
