Track Name: Peaks
white light glowing turning bleach
we're falling falling in too deep
bad dream
rolling down the heights it all seems so
unreal
wipe my cheeks from empty feelings
they'll fade in fade in go to sleep
bad dream
rolling down the heights it all seems so
unreal
Track Name: Outside Us
can't you see the shelter we've built is a trap i swear
if we stay in this zone for too long all excitement will disappear
keep it growing safely longing is no exit i can sense it
there is a world outside us
a triggering insight is pulling us astray
beyond our inner madness
increasing appetite to risk it all the way
if i draw the target will you stay or run will you dare
cause i'm set off like a bullet but still need a gun
keep it growing safely longing is no exit
there is a world outside us
there is a world outside us
a triggering insight is pulling us astray
beyond our inner sadness
there is a wider fight risk it all the way
Track Name: Uh-Oh
say it once! say it more!
say it till you don't mean it anymore!
do it once! do it more!
do it if you don't want to stay a bore!
uh-oh so dumb thats us turning numb
would you swallow me for a day
wonder whats inside of you that shakes
wanna loose myself all the way
dancing on until the body breaks
now i don't know you
show me how
i would love to
show me once! show me more!
show me blind cause i've seen it all before!
take me once! take me more!
take us down till we're lying on the floor!
uh-oh so dumb watch us turning numb
would you swallow me for a day
wonder whats inside of you that shakes
wanna loose myself all the way
dancing on until the body breaks
i don't know you
show me how
i would love to
uh oh
whats wrong
lets go
we're done
you go
i come
i do like you numb
Track Name: If
i had a house
above the ground
safe as a spouse
no walls around
(*)
inside and out
no room for doubt
open and wide
windows for light
i had a home
built in your palm
give me a hand
you'll understand
what it takes
for it to break
mind your selfish soul
if we should fall
(* repeat)
would we land
in our own hands
mind your selfish soul
you'll understand
what it takes
for it to break
mind your selfish soul
if we should fall
Track Name: Using You
another late evening fate and not the slightest plan ahead
no i'm not tired but uninspired and could use company in crime
who'd be so kind to change my mind help me loose it all instead
give me a taste
answer the phone i know you're home oh give it up you dizzy head
i wanna see you wanna use you wanna loose my fucking time
waste it all waste it all
i'm not your friend
i just pretend
another late evening fate and nothing to do with myself
maybe i'm crazy or just lazy, spent too many hours in bed
who'd be so kind to change my mind help me loose it all instead
give me a taste
answer the phone i know you're home oh give it up you dizzy head
i wanna see you wanna use you wanna loose my fucking time
waste it all waste it all
i'm not your friend
i just pretend
why even make a song about it, why?
Track Name: Hollywood
traveling places far away
will change my mood
I guess I could
leave this for a while
and I know it would do me good
the necessity to change
my attitude
I know I should
move from time to time
and I know it would do me good
childish dreams and naive hopes
no one cares nobody copes
though I aim to go by book
half my mind will stay a crook
working day and night i dream
of Hollywood
I doubt I could
like it for a while
but I know it would do me good
growing older every day
may adulthood
do me good
i´d rather stay the same
this to me is understood
Track Name: Rainbows
sometimes
it's like i want it all
see i'm not the kind
thats bounded to one shore
though somehow lately
the colors of his glow
sparkling on me
draw me to want him more
it's hard to swallow the pride
open my eyes
(he's no type for part-time loving)
most times
our horizons expand
it's been so long
i wonder where this ends
bending like rainbows
his unspeakable hues
make it obvious
i should narrow my view
it's hard to swallow the pride
no compromise
(he's no type for part-time loving)
Track Name: Wolf
who's brighter in the night time
we wanna have it out
a shadow through the spotlights
you seek me i seek you
we're creatures in the dark
and at the crystal hour
the biting of our nature
will bring ourselves to bark
dare if you care
your fangs are full of glitter
your mouth's a hollow shrine
you grin and pass it over
i wonder why you shine
Track Name: L I L A
I call a guess, My little mess
Just one look at you
You know i’m pretty through
Oh would you be my ride
My suicide, Why do you cry
I was unprepared
I never knew you cared
I could see you blooming from the far
Pink and blue i wondered what you are
The closest I could ever get to Lila
Was never close enough
Bending at the words of those who made you
No matter what they say i know it’s untrue
The best things i could ever give you Lila
Were never good enough
Oh let me call a guess, My little mess
Why do you cry
Just one look at you
You know i’m pretty through
It would’t be the same, my tiny flame
Open me wide
Push them to the side
You shouldn’t have to hide
It wouldn’t be the same
Track Name: Not Asking For It
BITCH / FAT PIG / WHORE / SCORE
I'M NOT ASKING FOR IT
WHO SAID YOU COULD RATE ME, SHAME ME
SLUT / DAMN CUNT / GRAB THEM BY THE PUSSY / HOT BODIES
STILL NOT ASKING FOR IT
WHO SAID YOU COULD RATE ME, BLAME ME
DONT OBJECTIFY ME, NOW FACE ME
STILL NOT ASKING FOR IT
Track Name: Ivy
some poisons have a way to spread in slow
living inside you long before they show
too soon rushing through the veins and breaking nerves
ill wounds self afflictions we cannot observe
now that i see it
so pristine i hardly stand the sight
i promise i'm on it
evergreen in facing parasites
while some are hooked on pointless TV shows
i'd rather watch the ivy grow
assume distractions could be meant to make us blind
in bloom i'll climb out the lightest way i find
now that i see it
so pristine i hardly stand the sight
i promise i'm on it
evergreen and overwhelming blight
though i'm too young now to make any sense
i trust that weakness tempers self defense
if confrontation is the only way i'm healing
Track Name: Happy Happy Joy Joy
oh what a bliss
i've found the joy i've always missed
(yet unseen)
it's all in my head
now emptied from the many tears i've shed
(so it seems)
no more vain suffering i am stoked
when life is deceiving make it a joke
show your teeth
curl your lips up to your cheeks
(what a scene)
thats all the trick takes
bet if you try it you'll believe in it
(in your dreams)
no more vain suffering i am stoked
when life is deceiving make it a joke
even when everything's hard to cope
when life is deceiving make it a joke
Track Name: Monotony
our love ended early darling
in a bedroom was it mine
as we waited for the morning
honey for our sake
half asleep and full pretending
closing eyes on our decline
seemed like it was everlasting
lay me leave me for our sake
i die to feel awake
we've been endlessly repeating
the same gestures overtime
there is such a way of breaking
lay me leave me for our sake
i die to feel awake
Track Name: Formulate
cause i thought i said i knew i could
captivate a reasonable point
now i guess you got it wrong
colliding at the peak of our illusions
loosing the meaning
if there is one at all
is there one at all
entangled in a form of comprehension
where logical deductions rule
should be clear but i couldn't
all that i say oh would you say it all the same
formulate
you didn't mean that did you
you're a liar you're a liar in silence
when words are failing
understand what i'm saying
i'm not sure where this is leading
can't express the way i'm feeling
left you in the vague
trying to say i'm sorry
couldn't find the outline
figuring it out
how can i put it
makes it too real
could i ever have it out
don't wanna make it real
i don't wanna say it
so i'm just running out
Track Name: Girlfriend
you never clean up the dishes thats so uncool
you never know where the sponge is call me a fool
we're running out of toilet paper
the floor is sticking to my feet
save it for later
you never clean up the dishes thats so uncool
you never know where the sponge is call me a fool
our trash is smelling like rotten cheddar
a home for bugs an fleas to breed
but our concerns are greater
