Track Name: Everything Is Wrong. Everything Is OK.
Dark spots spread all over my body
And their motions branded my skin
Oh I have tried so long to get ready
But stones covered the way so I gave in

What have I done wrong?
I tried to be breathing
But I could not achieve it anymore

Waited for words to come out of my head
And wasted thoughts on to retire
Oh I sometimes wished I was dead
But my mind works against my desire

What have I done wrong?
I tried to be breathing
But I could not achieve it anymore
What have I done wrong?
That all is pulling me down

Meaningless apologies tried to make me think
That everyone is running away from the same things
Meaningless apologies tried to make me think
That I could leave right before it begins

I always knew we would fall apart
If we don't retard
Erasing the last spark
Remaining in our hearts

What have I done wrong?
I tried to be breathing
But I could not achieve it anymore
What have I done wrong?
That all is pulling me down
Track Name: Moth-Eaten
We all surrender to great emotions though we know
That our truth is based on fake imaginations

Can you see what everyone is ignoring?
Do you believe in what everyone is talking?

A world being build on a giant grave
Where people are afraid to brave
"There is nothing to fear and nothing to doubt!"
The moths are taking our wives
The moths are eating us alive
"There is nothing to fear and nothing to doubt!"

I won't close my eyes when the moths will come
(When they will come, oh they will!)

Can you see what everyone is ignoring?
Do you believe in what everyone is talking?

A world being build on a giant grave
Where people are afraid to brave
"There is nothing to fear and nothing to doubt!"
The moths are taking our wives
The moths are eating us alive
"There is nothing to fear and nothing to doubt!"
Track Name: Of War Is At War
He loved to ride on the rush of blood
Then bullets crushed straight to his heart
Down from his breast the cross fell off
Right from his hands the color flaked

Defeated the men and saved all his sons
Destroyed their shields and burnt down their guns
No, he won't serve his time anymore

So he cried: "All hail the king!" And died!

The armies still march in straight lines
Track Name: Digital Me
On and off
Asleep and awake
Coming in and out
And drifting away
Open your eyes
And start to haste
Feeling alive
And going to waste

I am starting to release myself from the thought of being free
So I better start off getting along with my digital me

On and off
Asleep and awake
Being docile
And loosing faith

My decisions are made by foreign computations

Now all my friends become strangers (deadly strange)
And passing ghosts seem so familiar at once

I am starting to release myself from the thought of being free
So I better start off getting along with my digital me
Track Name: Town Of Clocks
Waking in the middle of the night
Dripping with sweat, like dead
Disbanded from love
I entered the door of regret

No time is left
No time is left
To vanish the death
Vanish the death
Oh, no time is left
No time is left
To let me forget
Let me forget

Slow down the urgency
To resist the beast
Slow down the urgency
Capturing you and me

Tick tock
Like a drop of sand
Rinsing from the top
To the bottom of an hourglass

No time is left
No time is left
To vanish the death
Vanish the death
Oh, no time is left
No time is left
To let me forget
Let me forget

Slow down the urgency
To resist the beast
Slow down the urgency
Capturing you and me
Track Name: Lightning Speed
I fell into a dream
Of lightning speed
Through infinite space
Hunted by dark figures and shapes

It feels like I have been through all this before
I just want to wake up, I just want to wake up

I fell into a dream
Of lightning speed
And alighted on a creek
Clearly intended for drowning me

The flash before my eyes
The disclosure of disguise

The flash
The disclosing

It feels like I have been through all this before

I fell into a dream of lightning speed
I fell into a dream of lightning speed

It feels like I have been through all this before
I just want to wake up, I just want to wake up
Track Name: Dancing Upon The Moon
I had have never thought that breaking from escaping
Would ever make me feel that free
And above all without faking the engraving
Chiseled in the stones that we carry

We won't stop dancing upon the moon
We won't stop dancing upon the moon

Dead is what I felt before we restored
The rhythm of our heartbeat
Then I found out the more we explore
The more we move away from foreign greed

We won't stop dancing upon the moon
We won't stop dancing upon the moon
And our hearts swing until the erasure
Of all qualms about where we might end up

We won't stop dancing upon the moon
Track Name: Cutty Sark
Black sky is rising
The distance is fading
Weird creatures are crawling
Into the dark night
Red sky is falling
The vultures are circling
And seamen keep singing
Until the mainsail holds tight

We won't give up and don't fear the death

Faith will carry us safely over the surface of the sea
Hope will carry us safely to the place of peace we all want to be

Grey sky is lifting
The ashes are falling
The ship wrecks are drowning
Down to the abyss
Blue sky is shining
Grand eagles are circling
And seamen keep singing
Up to never-ending bliss

In shadows of the night
They're calling at the shore
In creepy caves they hide
What the devil's lusting for

Black sky is rising
The distance is fading
Weird creatures are crawling
Into the dark night
Red sky is falling
The vultures are circling
And seamen keep singing
Until the mainsail holds tight
Track Name: Dead In The Water
Like stalling out
I am freezing
And there is no doubt
That the death feels pleasing
When no one joins my tune

I am dead in the water
Don't want to go any further
Oh I am dead in the water
And every move is getting harder

The bitter sound
Of a bottle dropping
Down to the ground
Where wights are stopping
Me straight from drinking up

I know that it is still far from over

I am dead in the water
Don't want to go any further
Oh I am dead in the water
And every move is getting harder
Track Name: Versus
I made decisions completely misguided
And shared positions always so divided
I have been searching for a light in the darkness
And stumbled around to just meet up with blindness

It is me versus all the others
It is me versus all the others

In my dreams horrors become abstruse pleasures

And now the faith that guided me for so long just dissapeared

In my dreams horrors become abstruse pleasures
