Webs 04:05
Webs the spiders of the mind weaving nets in my head to catch flies or glowworms maybe the snails of time creep up the walls leaving sticky traces all over the place the webs of dream already abandoned the threads of day’s web not yet taken all moments are just a spiral winding into eternity the hands of the clock moving in ever concentric circles the tissues of night elegantly may flow and not bury my dreams beneath piles of things the hands of sleep still on me i again get lost in the maze of the mind the webs of dream already abandoned the threads of day’s web not yet taken all moments are just a spiral winding into eternity the hands of the clock moving in ever concentric circles

Euphoria 04:04
Euphoria this is so exciting ever so exciting can you smell it it’s already in the air i don’t know what’s gonna happen i don’t know what’s coming next but i take it on a new challenge in life i’m so impatient i just can’t wait but it’s all gonna happen the way it’s supposed to be just keep it coming i’m up for it alright you give me euphoria every time i don’t fear the abyss underneath you give me euphoria every time i don’t wanna take life with a pinch of salt if we fall we’ll just get up again brush off the dirt skip on to the beat with a smile metamorphosis is the secret heart of life millions of choices anything’s possible so don’t be afraid take off the blinkers and take your chances change can be for the better as well you give me euphoria every time i don’t fear the abyss underneath you give me euphoria every time i don’t wanna take life with a pinch of salt chance encounters with strangers intertwining with your life frozen moments glimpses of what could be

The Tide 04:26
The Tide locked gaze fatal attraction our hearts skipping beats drinks and sweet talk finally you lean in a kiss in the door frame dizzy and out of breath we tumble into the dawn the taxi ride a blur we are like the tide when i ebb you flow we are like the tide only time will show skinny-dip tease in the water then love in the park head over heels bathed in warm sunlight pleasure chills down my spine stay here no don’t go you walk me to the car a last kiss goodbye we are like the tide when i ebb you flow we are like the tide sorry i had to go after that and still we’re dancing round in circles we’ve got it down to perfection one step forward one step back each time we might get close you do a 180 on me once i give you the cold shoulder the hunt is back on for you same old same old same old same old i break the pattern moving on we are like the tide when i ebb you flow we are like the tide it’ll be too late by the time you know

Zero Tolerance closing in i was back back backed into a corner he was looking into my eyes i was looking for a way out my eyes darting to and fro unasked an unwanted kiss struggling free from his embrace i never gave out any signs what’s with the obsessive phone calls now? why’s no no no not an answer? zero tolerance from now on gotta kill what’s killing me zero tolerance from now on no more putting up with no more polite smiles moving in with me she was only take take taking i shared everything i had she took everything she could get her hands on when i felt low low so low she had no empathy for me a friend in need’s a friend indeed but she’s just telling lies lies lies is it ever enough enough enough for you? do you ever think of anyone else but yourself? zero ... lured me in by make make making just false promises tricked me into trusting you just to leave me out in the rain at the worst moment restrained stripped of all dignity after mock mock mocking me revenge is a dish best served cold i’ve cooled down so pay for your crimes why do you need to de- de- debase others? did you think there’d be no repercussions? zero ...

Chaos & Order no matter no matter no matter how hard i try to sustain some sort of order in one blink of an eye it’s all turned into chaos no matter how hard i try to walk along the straight path one look over my shoulder and i keep tripping over stones chaos and order as contrary as can be chaos and order are both part of me no matter how hard i try to do what feels right for me i always always end up doubting and hesitating no matter how hard i try to look for new horizons i keep on wondering about the past chaos and order as contrary as can be chaos and order are both part of me this has got to stop (please stop) if only for a sec (just for sec) chaos and order as contrary as can be chaos and order are both part of me

Hearts First 04:21
Hearts First here’s my string of bad luck whoever wants it can have it i’ve carried it long enough and i’m gonna leave it behind with all the other things i don’t need only i have to leave you behind too left with our feelings but empty handed we have to fill our hearts first before we fill our arms but we’ll learn eventually too many things came between us and now i’ll add miles and miles but maybe it’ll make us get closer it takes time to make yourself happy and i wish i could have done it here but all that i love is far away left with our feelings but empty handed we have to fill our hearts first before we fill our arms but we’ll learn eventually why do we wait for others to make us happy when the key lies within ourselves who said that it was easy we all know the truth often hurts

In Unison 03:47
In Unison in unison things so new and unfamiliar once already so well known and natural to you but suddenly you look around and see the beauty of it all let’s enjoy these moments not just let them pass let’s savour each moment to the full burn them into memory all your cells vibrate within the frequency of life and form a wonderful sound in these moments in unison with everything and all let’s enjoy these moments not just let them pass let’s savour each moment to the full burn them into memory it makes you feel complete and utterly lost at once simply inexplicable the moments that matter the most the moments that matter the most

Unspoken 05:14
Unspoken in a half lit underworld it hides dreamily unconscious of its importance and the smell of silence possesses the earth she waits there undone for glimpses of itself revealed if not the whole unveiled and silence fills the room full of unspoken vowels she sat there (unspoken) night turned to day to night repeatedly repeatedly she sat there (unspoken) the moon waxing and waning first whispers are left soon the whole world falls quiet so she goes on a mission to dig for a response to rescue all sound she might be in danger cause she denies muteness she simply doesn’t accept so only she hunts for the answer she walked there (unspoken) night turned to day to night repeatedly repeatedly she walked there (unspoken) the moon waxing and waning it won’t get away unsaid she won’t let its lips stay sealed for any further silence to descend she’ll make it scream for everyone to hear so if you feel the earth rumble and hear the ground roar you know it wasn’t left unspoken and finally again all sound fills the air she rests there (unspoken) night turns to day to night repeatedly repeatedly she rests there (unspoken) the moon waxing and waning

Paperheart 03:48
Paperheart this paperheart wasn’t big enough for love this paperheart could so easily burn you did well to hide it from me by chance it might have turned out real have you ever thought of my heart breaking into smithereens have you ever thought of my heart beating deep within my body this paperheart could too easily crease this paperheart fragile and pristine you did well to hide it from me by chance it might have turned out real have you ever thought of my heart breaking into smithereens have you ever thought of my heart beating deep within my body this paperheart if you gave it to me this paperheart might whisper three simple words this paperheart of yours this paperheart

Breathing Underwater you are like diving under ice i thought i could handle it but i can’t i thought i got it all worked out i only filled the void with nothing i inhale exhale inhale exhale it doesn’t stop the feeling i’m breathing underwater i’m diving under ice it was just a temporary membrane it bursted today it’s gone still right now at this moment life seems too precious to me i inhale exhale inhale exhale it doesn’t stop the feeling i’m breathing underwater i’m diving under ice soothing skin you don’t know how much you saved my life

A Little a little lost today a little more than yesterday a little less tomorrow hopefully a little less each day a little less lost give me some time to curl up in whispers remain in hiding for a while gloomy in shadows so deeply still breathing intensely to finally surface renewed completely a little moan today a little moan tomorrow a little moaner I’ll be till I’ll get better so I’m not gonna moan for long give me some time to curl up in whispers remain in hiding for a while gloomy in shadows so deeply still breathing intensely to finally surface renewed completely a little better already a little better tonight a little better tomorrow a little better give me some time to curl up in whispers remain in hiding for a while gloomy in shadows so deeply still breathing intensely to finally surface renewed completely every time I’m heart broken it’s gonna hurt a little less I hope the way you get used to pain if you only feel it long enough
