Track Name: Chained To You
It’s so monotone that the lines seem to blur
We go out of our way
We lead ourselves astray
Always caught in a circle repeating a loop
They nod but they had never understood

It’s just like a memoir of a bittersweet end
From the rush in their systems to days now ill spent
A shift in the force that clashed with its fate
What is not love is hate

One night I’ll wake up with you I know
This unexplained attraction
But the love never grows
Feeling desperate now
Trying not to allow
My heart
Wants to stop
‘cause its fuel is on low

I begged for release
(But got chained up instead)
You locked me inside
(My own empty head)
Like a bird you were shot
(Spiralin’ down from the sky)
Like an angel of light
You destroy in the night

One night I’ll wake up with you I know
This unexplained attraction
But the love never grows
Feeling desperate now
Trying not to allow
My heart
Wants to stop
‘cause its fuel is on low
Track Name: Hey
Hey
I wanna hear your voice
How I long for you
Like a child without toys
Like a man who has no more space
To be alone
I strain to be nearer to you

What's your purpose here?
Carving the way for your tears
All that we've done leads to here
From this point year after year

Help me to free myself out
Set me aflame to see me burn
I was never to be yours
But you said I can be anyone any day

Hey I took from you what you never had
Hey just keep on saying that you're mad
Hey there ain't no stone I left unturned
Come around I'll show you how to turn wine into gold

What's your purpose here?
Carving the way for your tears
All that we've done leads to here
From this point year after year
Track Name: Tape Your Love
I know today won't hide the sun away
I'll take the road that once led to your door
There's no stopping me
I let go
I let go and said goodbye

Hello
Your love comes in and out the door
Your smile is like a key to my soul
I know
I know the future will shine again

A chance is what you needed
But I couldn't be defeated
Tape your love to my heart
And maybe we can work something out

Dropped my sky on the ground
Or maybe I'm just upside down
If I am sane then you're insane
Ha! You say that it's the other way

Hello
Your love comes in and out the door
Your smile is like a key to my soul
I know
I know the future will shine again

Never knew no boundaries
Crossing all lines
Some still say we had it in us
Cutting all ties
Over mountains and into oceans

We're always side by side
The only middle man we need is a bottle of wine

You're my light
You're no fun
We keep together like glue
You say such sweet sweet words
(Baby, I love you)

I found a panacea
To keep you away from me
Deep deep inside
You left a splinter
In my heart

I should keep it to myself
And maybe I should stay that way
Delay the time
Don't cut the line
You're not the golden one

And maybe it's funny
Because I been running
Only to hear you say
Dearie I love you
But I always blow kisses
From far away
Oh she be away
To the end of the world
I run away
From far away
Track Name: Starborn
I was running to undo my mistakes
They were lying everywhere
And you were lying
I knew that you were fake
So I lied in wait

Have you ever been what you wanted to be
That's what we are when we're set loose
We abuse
We were misused
You get and you give
I always hope that tomorrow will bring
And when you'll call it real, I'll drop the gun
Any walking man beneath us will run
You see the future but not your own fate
Living life that way was always great

They just need another reason
To figure out why they can't pretend
As time shifts in-between each season
Something moons cannot deject

Can you feel my hand reach inside
And make a beeline for your beating heart
Maybe next year when I collide
A quasar you are

It's only ever the thrill of the chase
People free and occupy space
Kindly I beckon you to my throne
The soul; its petrifaction just wouldn't occur
Hope
It only lasts for so long
Before people push you on
Until I stand on my feet

Wishing for a star
But tied down to my core
All strung up in yearn
Never said that I want more

Can you feel my hand reach inside
And make a beeline for your beating heart
And when the stars align the time will be right
So sleep tight
The sun you're hiding from
Is always behind

Can you feel my hand reach inside
And make a beeline for your beating heart
Maybe next year when I collide
A supernova
Another new star
Another new star
Track Name: Persona
Wear my soul, feel my bones
I'm in love with you
Need not only the sky above
I'm a Persona too
Our stars will show us the way
We have to pass together
Run, hurry up, and don't hide mistakes
Our life can escape whenever

I would like to see your eyes again
Persona
What are you hiding under the shell?
I'm somber
Tell me the secret that you've kept for so long
I need this

Do me a favor, say your will is strong
My sickness
Hear my whisper, words break thoughts
And escape through my feelings
I'm sick and you're my personal illness

Let's find the truth in the darkest night
Hear my only reason
I've found the thunder in your mind
Shine my only beacon

Wear my soul, feel my bones
I'm in love with you
Need not only the sky above
I'm a Persona too
Our stars will show us the way
We have to pass together
Run, hurry up, and don't hide mistakes
Our life can escape whenever

It's a dream I'm not allowed to touch
Feelings waking up
Нearts beat together, they just don't beat much
Nevermind the bruising

Let's find the truth in the darkest night
Hear my only reason
I've found the thunder in your mind
Shine my only beacon

Wear my soul, feel my bones
I'm in love with you
Need not only the sky above
I'm a Persona too
Our stars will show us the way
We have to pass together
Run, hurry up, and don't hide mistakes
Our life can escape whenever
Track Name: Memories
Memories
Leap into my arms again
Inadequate
I keep myself off the chain
Time repeats
And loses all value to me
Seasons pass
Forgotten they wither in silence

Missing a train like you missed your whole life
Filling space with their meaningless air

Missing a train like you missed your whole life
Filling space with their meaningless air

You make up for your mistakes
Find a hint of love
Fight on with everyone
Knowing there's no time to throw around
And hear of woes past
And when you'll wake up I'll be gone
See the world through your eyes

Missing a train like you missed your whole life
Filling space with their meaningless air

Memories, fade away
They leap into the arms of fate
Inadequate
Off the chain
Seems like the time has passed between us

Just like the stone where I stand atop of
No I'm not jumping off this damn train
Missing a train like you missed your whole life
Jumping off this damn train
Walk until there's no more ground
Breathe the air like there's no more
Walk until there's no more ground
Breathe the air like there's no more
Track Name: Your Entertainment
Before I fall apart
Let me know one thing
If my thoughts were right?
Did you hate me?
Can I lose this pain?
In an ocean of pleasure
Or can't I?

And I beg you to listen to my thoughts
They are from the heart, falling down
And I beg you to listen to my thoughts
They are from the heart, falling down

No, I don't wanna lose it all
But I realize
I just used to be yours
I never even say goodbye
You were my attainment
Feelings lost in timeline

I always was your entertainment
Track Name: Pain
It hurts, the pain, so please, no more
Can the martyr go on with the show?
When you look from space and the whole world
Falls apart before your eyes
Closing my eyes

I walk without my feelings around me
To soften the fall
My limbs are torn and I'm on the phone
With a broken line

Rumor has it someone knows
A place where friends can meet as foes
Now all pure hearts and all blessed souls
Have finally a place to go

And go they go, and see they see
My thoughts have pierced eternity
Death gives back no new life
Just a shadow of a design
Shoot me down to never tell me the lie
I hide and hide
They keep on closing my eyes

I walk without my feelings around me
To soften the fall
My limbs are torn and I'm on the phone
With a broken line

Hold on son
Your father's learning to fly

Keep me locked in your dead mind
'Cause nothing is true
I am nothing to you

Now I walk on these coals on last time
You enjoy burning holes in my life
I am past white
Emptiness of things gives light
Live it long
Track Name: Abyss
I used to live in sorrow
Inside my dreams it’s possible to fly

My misty dreams are swallowing me
I could fight, but I feel so free
Go away, there's a chance you missed
Or see me step into the abyss

Flying into the void
I'm surrounded by thoughts
My vessel floats above the earth
Full of empty plots
Unfinished stories facing broken fates
When will a light shine on this place?

I was always afraid
To look in her eyes
Is her touch soft?
Will I be torn apart?
I don't know what's awaiting me
Hope in eternity
I’ll be free

And now I say goodbye
To the world that I left behind

No chance to breathe again
But I have to
I've got chained to my pain
Waiting for you

Silent sickness tied me up
How can I fight against my own trap?
And I'll fall in bliss
Through my fading mind
Falling down into the Abyss
Track Name: Temptation
Sometime I need to get away from it all
Someday I know I’m gonna drop the sword
Why can’t I go on when there’s a war to be fought?

Why can’t I smile when there’s some joy to be had?
Once a day is gone it will never come back
Why can't I go on when there's nowhere to be gone?

There’s an endless mist above the infinite sea
The sea that separates the dream from reality
I know a place where you can feel the demon’s breath
Spray it on like perfume cause it smells like death

It never changes
As the pages turn
It never ages
And yet it still grows old

It never fails to
Impress me all the way
It never burns me
And yet it hurts like hell

Now is the time to begin our own ends
Walking around in our own shallow depths
Many about keeping their faces straight
Its all clouded over
Retracing our steps

Now is the time for the sun to arise all raw
My hand is there
Waiting for you

There’s an endless mist above the infinite sea
The sea that separates the dream from reality
I know a place where you can feel the demon’s breath
Spray it on like perfume cause its smells like death
Track Name: Breaking Time
Take me back to where I never was
Even though I’m a new soul here
I feel as if I’ve been here before
But the seasons never last, do they?
Your head’s covered in snow
(Find me a way back home)

The sun shines on my rainy life
And for once things looked so bright
Those were lies you fed me and
Now I’m
More dead on the inside

Call me down from above
Keep on climbing as I’m falling
From the tower in the sky
Damned are fools that take this lost road
Cursed are the ones that have no way at all
(Echoing down the hall)

The sun shines on my rainy life
And for once things looked so bright
Those were lies you fed me and
Now I’m
More dead on the inside
Track Name: Lighst & Shadows
Share your breath with me
So we can suffocate when we fall
Yes we shall
In such short notice of time
There's so much to be done
Why did you poison
My sleep full of worry
Silence me
Into walls they close in anyway
Whatever happened to the oath you swore to me long ago
A burning inferno that tore down everything that we've known
Whatever happened to the oath you swore to me long ago
An insulated silence that escaped out into the world
The sun is out, a new day
A day is born, let's go play
And play the day away
If there's a God above
Then why are we all below?
Ideal is not for all
Befriend the shadow
If there's a God above
Then why are we all below?
Ideal is not for all
Befriend the shadow
Today I'm as spaced out
As the four corners of the world
All the things that cease to be
Now find their place between us
Today I have conquered
The infinity to go beyond
To fill up my backyard
I exist in-between the lights and shadows
Track Name: So How About It?
In a room full of thoughts
I am never alone
A lost and distant memory
Comes afloat

I find it hard to escape
Without going numb
I want to sing a song
That hasn't been sung

So how about it?
Won't you take my hand?
All I have to share with you
Is this empty air
To show you what it's like
To fly high
And lie in eternal wait
For the rising sun

Waiting for the wave
To wash me away
And to empty my lungs of air

This creature within me
Is slipping out
It paints my shadows
And haunts me at night

So how about it?
Lead me into the light
Show me to the paradise
On the other side
Our bodies will age
From time to time
But our souls and our love
Will be forever entwined
