Awake at nighttime Lay in your bed There is no hope for us Will you be mad? Where are you going My special friend You should believe me It's not the end Trapped in a nightmare You'll be awake For all eternity It's just a fake Why are you leaving My only friend Do not believe them This is the end

Disturbia 07:21
Sleeping all day and it's working fine Hiding from problems that aren't mine Ignoring debates, discussions and interviews Shielding myself from the latest news And my day goes on, and on Politics come across as pretentious and cheap During talkshows, I tend to fall asleep Global issues don't bother me at all Compared to mine, they seem rather small I... I don't care Some might say that it's not clever That I can't avoid reality forever But I stopped caring long ago, their words mean nothing So I just shrug and walk away, but deep inside I'm laughing I'm going home... to sleep some more

Welcome to a place Where the colours are all gray You can spend your time To contemplate and pray Come and talk to us We'll take away your fear And if you see a light You'll know why you came here Welcome to a place Where the colours are all gray

Monkey Face 04:52
The look in your face Tells me more Than all your words Orange drops of sweat And skinny sacks of flesh Do I see a gray hair? The wrinkles burn like itches Get the kitchen knife And cut my eyeballs out I must be someone else Burn the yearbook pictures I must be someone
5.
As the dawn breaks All the dark clouds Disappear from view It's true, ooh I'm gonna pull myself together And do a leap Good morning, world, I'm on my way To go out and face the day Because I'm high and full of energy My head Is ready To take a dive Blood is running through my veins The energy remains My soul and body burn with ecstasy I'm floating And soaring I feel alive I will not drown beneath the waves But grow and reach new heights The perfect time can only be now I'm running Faster I'll set the pace I can feel my feet transcend This highway never ends Will it take me to a different place? Driving Arriving In outer space The stars shine brighter every minute And the music never stops I'm gonna pull myself together And show the world it's me
6.
Solitude, isolation Emptiness and desolation I feel like a stranger to myself And yet, so familiar The time has come to finally Rethink my life All I was The moment your heart must surrender Don't worry, cause you're not alone A dream where you're floating in heaven Remaining in a world of your own You can feel yourself My visions fade like my memories Acceptance is all I may find Returning to my only shelter All pain is erased from my mind I can't see my face Ooooh, Ah, Ah Ooooh, Ah, Ah

False Hope 08:15
Ask no questions, believe in the scripture Say your prayers, embrace the lecture Conditioned to follow, they've got us under control Showing no mercy, indoctrinating our soul Whipping us motionless, forcing the sheep to obey Bellowing orders, taking our freedom away Do not give in Don't let them win This is the final chance for us to rebel Escaping this false delusion and breaking the spell Rejecting the lies and the hate that bring death and despair When will they stop to pretend, when they really don't care Will I ever heal? (x2)

Why do these faces come back and haunt me? How can it be that I must relive these events? Echoes of my voice attempting to taunt me They won't let me bleach the red on my trembling hands And I want to forget But I will not forget Oh, and I want to escape Conscience, will you leave me be? What's this unsettling light I see My courage is drifting away from me Conscience, leave me be When you can't apologise And you can't hide the fear in your eyes Now I just look in the mirror and scream Darkness, set me free
9.
We never really talked Not a single word I still feel the memories But the memories hurt I may have lied to you Can we just try anew? And next time I'll be honest To you, I promise We may have waited too long The opportunity is gone Oh, I can feel the pain (Can you feel the pain) I can feel the shame
10.
They ship us off to war On a sinking freighter We go to no man's land To fight someone else's war We leave our base in early morning We will march until it's dark My feet are cold, my legs are hurting I am hungry and afraid They ship us off to war To defend our country That we have left behind Out here we must risk our lives My ears are filled with sounds of bullets Bodies falling to the ground I used to be afraid of dying Now I'm just afraid to live They ship us off to war And the tides keep turning Even if our troops win Our people will always lose I turn my head and see the corpses They will never fade away

Present Day 12:37
Is this our time Is this our time, we ask They come for us They come for us Unexpectedly We live our lives Until the sun turns black We fall apart We fall apart together Unexpectedly Our busy minds reflect upon mysteries unsolved Our world may fall apart Our world may end today But after all we can say At the end of the day That we are still here Yes, we still breathe
12.
Broken Man 05:18
Listen to my story That I'm about to tell Back in my days of glory Before I tripped and fell The vividness of morning Had stayed with me all day But then, without a warning The sky had turned all gray The light becoming stranger And shadows start to fall The feeling that there's danger The wish to end it all As much as you might tremble For courage you should strive For if you have to gamble Don't gamble with your life
