Track Name: Sunshine's Over
Time comes for all of us
How long could this last?
The lies you tell to yourself
You never greeted with a cold hand
Don't ask for silence
You'll never hear again
And if they give you a hard time
Just nod your head and go away

Don't ever let them touch you
Don't ever let them see you cry
Don't let them crush your soul
And never suffer in silence

Where will you be
When the sunshine's over?

Your dark desires
Listen to your tune
In the dark there's no moon

Where will you be
When the sunshine's over?
Track Name: Blood Rack
Don't jump into the river
Never swim in sorrow
Don't light the room
We can taste your blood

In shadow we stay
Forever hiding away
(Carry the rock with your name on it)
Should this be the end
We can always be your friend
(Clean your hands on our tears)

We watched you as a child
Sleeping, a somber vibe you had
(Fly through the velvet clouds)
Wrong time to cross
No point should be sharp
(And never look back)
Track Name: The Wrong Path
No one said it was easy
No one said it was fair

How many angels have to cry
For you to see
That you're on the wrong path

It's time to cry
Watch the birds fly
On their own accord

Two birds flying high above the clouds
For a brief moment there was peace
As they flew over a storm
The sky was black

Will you die for me?

How many angels have to cry
For you to see
That you're on the wrong path

It's time to cry
Watch the birds fly
On their own accord
Fishing wishes
For a brighter future
Unexplored
Track Name: Seventh Orchid
Holding your hand I give in
We sail together as the night falls
Red eyes watching over you
Feeling hopeless, we undo

Let me help
To find your home
Please let me
Help to find 'inside'

So fragile and helpless
A trigger happy person
No one to blame, what a shame
What a shame

You helped me through
Let me help you
Track Name: Turn Your Light On
Colored television
Selling lies to me
Fear and insanity
Brings me to my knees
With new clothes
I'm closer to the other side
Faking emotions
Walking with pride

He was me
When I wasn't sure who I was

Turn your light on me
Feeling roses
I found grace through fake lives

I'm spending money
On things that I don't need
I got twelve knives
And a suicidal tendency

I believe in other smiles

Turn your light on me
I know that they gave me some to see
Even though I thought my line had died
Feeling roses
I found grace through fake lives

He was me
When I wasn't sure who I was
Track Name: Razors
You grabbed that kitchen knife
And started cutting yourself
You know how to go down this road
The end for you is just a game
You dance with the devil all the time
Unified with love and death

Forgiveness is what you seek
Redemption is what you need

You grab that bottle of wine
And chug it down like water
Like your problems will go away
Feeling insecure about your future
While you throw it in the ground
Grab a cloth and clean the mess

Forgiveness is what you seek
Redemption is what you need
Compassion is what you yearn
Reaction is what you learn

Define the cause and effect
Pretend that you respect
Define the cause and effect
Defend every aspect

Forgiveness is what you seek
Redemption is what you need
Compassion is what you yearn
Reaction is what you learn
Mutation is what you want
Creation is what you taunt
Track Name: Travelling
Pack your bags and leave
Take what you can and please leave
Pick your shoes
Pick your hats
Pick whatever you have
Pick the brightest t-shirt
And the darkest jacket
Take what is yours
And what is mine
I don't care if you leave the light on
Just be out of here as soon as possible
Grab the nice glass that I know you have
Send me a postcard
When you go to hell
Track Name: Departure
Time
Was too kind to your soul
Fight
To regain your control

Open eyes
Dead by night
Feeling sober
Should be over
Prison skin
Mortal sin
Take my knife
Take my life

Time
Was too kind to your soul
Fight
To regain your control
Track Name: Numbers
By the time we realized
We were getting older
Seasons pass
The pain was on my shoulder

Do you remember
The time we drove away?
Do you have numbers
From every night and day?
Everything we sow
And what we throw away
Remember that night
Never felt afraid again

Hang the map on your wall
So you'll never be lost
Rotting in silence
While dreams go to waste

The fading sun left a mark on us
We will never be the same again

Do you remember
The time we drove away?
Do you have numbers
From every night and day?
Everything we sow
And what we throw away
Remember that night
Never felt afraid again

The fading sun left a mark on us
We will never be the same again
Track Name: Tired Of You
I lost all my faith
That sunlight we choose to bathe
Ask me about the other day
The answer you'd never say

You pray for eternal love
You pray for eternal lust

I'm tired of you
I wish I could repeat myself
But I'm tired of you

Each day we spend layed back
Closer to something really good
We open a hole beneath our feet
Leave my heart as I fall

I pray for eternal life
I pray for eternal peace

Go away
Stay away

I'm tired of you
I wish I could repeat myself
But I'm tired of you

Please leave me alone
Take these noises with you
Grab your coat as you leave
I'm not going to miss you
Track Name: Another Rapture
See the light in your way
People around your grave

Hope, take me
Around your arms
I want to go
Hope, will you take me
For a ride around
Where the moon can glow

I live for today
I live for another day
I'd kill for another day
Track Name: Heart
My dearest one, here's a song
Sing with me
I hope that you can at least understand
It's been too long

I've got some great news to you
I'm in peace
I spend my time thinking
I can wait

We never had the heart to tell
That when we cry, we fly away
And when I go, I want you to see
My smile, and live a day

Two years is a long time for you
To say goodbye
You may think it's not fair to you
It's okay to cry

We never had the heart to tell
That when we cry, we fly away
And when I go, I want you to see
My smile, and live a day
We never had the heart to tell
When we cry, we go
That when we cry, we go home

But I never woke up
Track Name: No Sin
Hunting down things to do
I never noticed your black eyes
It must've slipped through my mind
Like most things do
Just as I thought I had something good
I find darkness around the corner
A blue light making shadows
Of my so-called 'friends'
From my so-called 'life'
No sinners allowed
No beggars allowed

You call me
Cold and bitter
Haunted by myself
You found me
And you allowed me
To be inside you

I still remember that night
When you stole my light
I resist the temptation
To do something wrong
No sinners allowed
No beggars allowed

A storm came cleansing the land
Washing away all my guilt
But I still have my urge to call
For I have sinned
Track Name: Above The Clouds
I'm falling through a spiral
No command and no control
Television screens
Playing parts of my life
Seeing my life
Through someone's eyes
Hope is near me
Or it could be the ground

I came close to stepping out
All the time, all my life
The desolation makes me anxious

Eternity is love
Preaching out for me is all I see
Reality is love
Reaching out for you is all I see

I came close to stepping out
All the time, all my life
The desolation makes me anxious
In my heart I'll always trust
My own game, my own faith
The answer will come soon

The shine on the green marble is fading

I know that no sinners are allowed here
But I just want to be with the ones I love

High above the clouds
A storm came cleansing
Washing away all my guilt
For I have sinned
Apologies won't turn back time
Just as you broke the glass
I'm never coming back
I'm gone

History repeats itself

I'm gone for good
Track Name: Illumination
I'm not going to miss you
