01 Ghost
 

Dark Horizons

A silent warning

From the rising storm

More and more

The light is fading

The shadows will transform

 

As they stretch and bend

I doubt myself

For too much is unknown

Waiting for this ache to go by but

I’m reaping what I’ve sown

 

And I lie there like a ghost

Apathy’s my home today

And I lie there like a ghost

Hating what I love the most

 

Like a silly rabbit in the headlights

Unable to move

Swallowed up by what has happened

Stunned, left to the wolves

 

And I lie there like a ghost

Apathy’s my home today

And I lie there like a ghost

Hating what I love the most

And I lie there like a ghost

Apathy’s my home today

And I feel like this is the most

That I could have borne on my own

 

Free me

Free me

Feel me now

 

Hate me

Leave me

Try to fight it off

 

Hate me

Hurt me

And try to find it all

Someone wake me

 

Now I lie here like a ghost

Apathy’s my home today

And I lie here and feel the loss

Is it just because I failed

And I lie here

And the storm is here

 

 

 

02 Falling Skies
 

Little Lies

All eyes are burning red, we’re paralysed

How could I have been so blind?

Lost my sense

Did not see how fast our world descends

Tumbling deeper than I ever knew

That’s how hard I held unto

 

Being condescending is not how things mend

It’s the way we lost ourselves

A different ending on a different note

Not the way we gloat

Over the others fault

 

Little lies

Lock and load and aim and shoot on sight

Let us crawl until we’re proven right

Cause it’s either fight or flight

 

Being condescending is not how things mend

It’s the way we lost ourselves

A different ending on a different note

Not the way we gloat

Over the others fault

 

Seems like forever and ever and ever we’re running in

Circles, fleeing from each other while at the same

Time we retrace our own footsteps, the one’s that brought us down

 

We were spinning in this wheel for eternity

We were running around like mad afraid to break this

We were spinning in this wheel for eternity

We were running around like mad afraid to break this

Already broken bond of ours

 

Little Lies

All eyes are burning red, we’re paralysed

Let us sleep until the tears have dried

And we have regained our false pride

 

03 Soulstrip

 

There’s nothing left to fight

I must prepare to shed it all

I still hold tight

To a past light, to an old rite

 

Down down down

That’s where I hang out

It’s a soulstrip

It’s the same slip again

Down down down

That’s where I hang out

It’s a soulstrip

It’s the same slip

 

Because what I crave is

To rip out all the pain

Because what I crave

Is somewhere in here

Somewhere near here

 

And I just wear it on my sleeve

Publicly despaired

And I just rest on childish knees

Waiting for someone to save me

 

Down down down

It’s a soulstrip

It’s the same slip

That I have made before

 

What I crave is

To rip out all the pain

Because what I crave

Is nowhere in here

Nowhere near here

Because what I crave

Is somewhere out there

Not in here

Because what I crave

Is somewhere out there

Somewhere out there

So move

Just move

 

And as I rest here on my knees

I thought I saw something shine down there…

 

04 The Fountain

 

Could I be the one that leaves this

All behind me

There’s no sentence for all my deeds

My patience’s thin

 

Just below the waters

I can still breathe fine

Oh sadly I might just stay here till I have found myself

An old mistake

 

I am digging, digging, digging for the fountain off the course

I am digging, digging, digging to find sunlight down below

 

Could I be there

Behind those eyes

Trying hard to make them shine

But all is gone

I can’t hold on

 

Oh it’s my trial

Below the waters

Bridges burning

Our past behind

Oh the course in sight

but I’m out of time

 

Because

I’m digging, digging, digging for the fountain off the course

I am digging, digging, digging to find sunlight down below

I am digging, digging, digging and my hands are red and sore

But I’ll keep on going, I’m digging, digging, digging to find sunlight down below

I wont let this go

 

Throw away all caution

You gotta pay

Like she did

Innocence

This is not for you

 

I am digging, digging, digging and my hands are red and sore

I am digging, digging, digging till I’ve found what was before…

 

 

 

 

05 Siren

 

Dark waters, a silent night

But there’s a harmony that crawls into my mind

Sweet and sad and solemn and sound

Voices whose owners I’ve got to find

So I steer my ship, right at the rock

Sharp stones like teeth cut through it easily

The voices grow louder with the beat of the clock

As my ship is destroyed and I’m almost drowned

 

And the sirens, they’re singing still

Of golden times and gifts to share

And I am on the search again

To find a different end

 

With the last of my strenght, I pull myself onto the stone

The voices become beautifully painful

The full is rising still

As I approach the place where the sirens sing

 

And the sirens, they’re singing still

Of golden times and gifts to share

And I am on the search again

To find a different end

 

But then a sudden recollection

Is racing to the inner eye

A clear bright shine that makes

The scales fall off his eyes

There’s his partner, his lover

Friends from before this

Begging him

To pry open his eyes

 

As if waking from a dream he sees

The monsters sing in front of him

And he takes the only tool he knows

To end this goddamn devilry

With mouth open wide

Breathing the air into his lungs

Then he finally starts to scream:

 

Retract, retreat, oh now I see you clearly

My past wont be denied

Lesson learned

Be gone you devils

I will not listen again

 

And the sirens surprised and torn

In their faces fear and doubt is born

And the sirens they turn to smoke

And he is standing there all alone

 

And the sirens

They’re dead and gone

The golden times can finally come

And I am on the search again to find a better end

 

And the sirens

They’re dead and gone

The golden times can finally come

And I am on the search again to find a better end

 

 

06 Cocoon

 

Your eyes turn the colours in my mind to blue

While I am laying the rope round my neck

Just to check if I am suicidal or still in love

Completely stunned by the way you look

 

And I feel what I don't wanna feel

All becomes unreal

The lion’s been tamed

So’s the smile on my face

And I am where I don't wanna be

 

I want to go into the woods

Burying all that has happened to us

I’m gonna spin myself a cocoon

And feel nothing anymore

 

Your eyes turn the colours in my mind to blue

While I am laying the rope round my neck

Just to check if I am suicidal or anything

Completely stunned by the way you sting

 

And I feel what I don't wanna feel

All becomes unreal

The lion’s been tamed

So is the smile on my face

And I am where I don't wanna be

 

I’m still aching and damaged

From all the discord

Go away my phantom

Pushing you away

Terrified as I am

Hey I don’t wanna leave, but I am

 

I want to go into the woods

Burying all that has happened to us

I’m gonna spin myself a cocoon

And feel nothing anymore

 

I want to go into the woods

Maybe I’ll find my peace by trees

I’m gonna spin myself a cocoon

And feel nothing anymore

07 Minotaur

 

I leave the peace behind me

For the battle with the thief

Too long I was too passive

While my anger has increased

 

Cause I felt old and tired

In the wake of my mistakes

I did all that was required

But now I am awake

 

It’s slowly changing

Re-arranging

I’m shedding skin as I alter who I’ve been

Now let the wait begin

It’s slowly changing

Re-arranging

I’m shedding skin as I alter who I’ve been

Now let the wait begin

 

So into this maze I’m stumbling

Without any silver cord

My Minotaur behind me

Following my trail of hope

 

It too is old and tired

In the wake of all it’s pain

It has seen all sorts of vices

But some virtues all the same

 

We’re both looking for an exit

In this labyrinth we’ve made

I am looking for redemption

Oh my Minotaur

 

I’m changing

Re-arranging

We’re shedding skin as we alter who we’ve been

Now let the wait begin

I am changing

Re-arranging

I’m shedding skin as I alter who I’ve been

Now let the fight begin

 

Battle cries instead of lullabies

Two sides collide inside this suffering mind

Overdose from the fights I host

This is what I will miss the most

In this dark hour we perceive we’re the same

 

The spell is breaking

The walls are fading

A flood of colours splashed onto the grey

The gloom is washed away

 

The spell is breaking

The walls are fading

A flood of colours splashed onto the grey

The gloom is washed away

 

I leave this spell behind me

There is nothing left to fight

08 Rewind

 

I’ve been crawling alone home last night

Oh I thought it over at least a trillion times

Gotta be the one to pull you down

From the throne that I’ve carved out

While you rest up there

I curl up on the ground

 

If you could tell me it ain’t so

Down below

If you could tell me it ain’t so

Down below

 

Fighting sirens and minotaurs

While ever faster I’m getting old

Obliterate, obliviate

It really doesn’t feel that great

So break the cycle

Undo the curse

If not this will keep getting worse

Till I sit in silence

Feeling blessed for my hurt

 

If you could tell me it ain’t so

Down below

If you could tell me it ain’t so

Down below

 

Cause maybe

The storm has moved on long ago

We don’t need to rewind

To the calamity once more

 

Cause maybe

The storm has moved on long ago

We don’t need to rewind

To the calamity once more

 

Tell me it ain’t so

Down below

 

09 I dont mind

 

Dear brother do you mind

If I pick my own fights

Dear brother that ain’t right

Because you’re the mightiest of us all

 

Would you just unclench your fists

And just leave it behind

Would you feel better if

I walked on water instead

 

Cause I don’t mind

If you just take this upon yourself

I ain’t blind

But please beware, don’t loose yourself

Cause I don’t mind

If you just take this upon yourself

I ain’t blind

But please beware, don’t loose yourself

 

Would you be one to crack the shell

Only useless, little lies we tell

We’ll just keep on bickering

Till all descends

By the time I made you feel the same

 

Don’t play innocent

Saw it, liked it

To the bitter end

We divide it

 

Don’t play innocent

Been there, done that

Oh in my defense

I’ve opened my eyes

 

Dear brother do you mind

No one will win this fight

They are battles of the mind

But we hold our grudges more closely

 

Would you just unclench your fists

And just leave it behind

Would you feel better if

I walked on waters instead

 

Cause I don’t mind

If you just take this upon yourself

I ain’t blind

but please beware, don’t loose yourself

10 Causeway

 

Somewhere along the way

Somewhere along the causeway we went wrong

Somewhere along the way

Somewhere along the causeway we went wrong

 

Somewhere along the way

We were not trying to hard

Somewhere along the way

We were falling and could not get up

 

And then you were faltering just before the milestone

I was picking flowers just a mile above the way

And upon my return I saw that you were lonesome

Thinking ‘bout the faces of the ones you’ve left behind

 

Somewhere along the way

Somewhere along the causeway we went wrong

Somewhere along the way

We were walking and smiling and were calm

 

And then you were faltering just before the milestone

I was picking flowers just a mile above the way

And upon my return I saw that you were lonesome

Thinking ‘bout the faces of the ones you’ve left behind

 

There were cracks in the stone just too small to see

Little trickles running down

Harolds of the flood that was about to come down on us

 

Somewhere along the way

Somewhere along the causeway we went wrong

Somewhere along the way

Somewhere along the causeway we went wrong

 

Somewhere along the causeway we went wrong

Somewhere along the causeway we went wrong

Somewhere along the causeway we went wrong

Somewhere along the causeway we went wrong

 

 

 

 

 

11 Highest Wave

 

And we rode the highest wave

It led us astray

We were crying out our names

But it was too late

 

And we rode the highest wave

Now nothing is the same

We were crying out our names

But all was in vain

 

Although the weight was building up

We lay there on the floor

We just tried to hide away from the storm

 

And although the weight was growing

We lay shaking down below

We just had enough of tears and broken hearts

 

And we rode the highest wave

It led us far astray

We were crying out our names

But it was too late

 

And we rode the highest wave

Now nothing is the same

We were crying out our names

But all was in vain

 

Although the weight was building up

We lay there on the floor

We just tried to hide away from the storm

 

And although the weight was growing

We lay shaking down below

We just had enough of tears and broken hearts

 

And I rode the highest wave

Nothing is the same

I was carving out your name

For so many days
