Track Name: Grain Of Sand
I lose my grip on reality.
It is hard to stay calm when no one is able to see,
The marks I have left on my way into the light.
I am without a trace trapped in the deep of the night.

I am stranded here
With nobody near
Shunned by the world
Spend my life in fear
Just Scarred to disappear
I am out of sight
And out of mind

I search for my place in a world which is divided.
But nothing is left for me and no one gives a damn about it.
Just one of a million – Is this all I can be?
Don’t lay me down to sleep when there is more to see
Track Name: The Cave
I have put the blame on the world
For every time that I have got hurt
You could have left me to my fate
Instead of carrying all the weight

My mind is in a dark place
Save my soul – I fall from grace

I have been busy to lick my own wounds
I haven’t seen that I have ruined you day in & out
You could have left me to my fate
Instead of carrying all the weight

My mind is in a dark place
Save my soul – I fall from grace

You could have left me to my fate
Instead of carrying all the weight

I haven’t been fair on you
The only one that has been true
Fooled myself – Hit the ground
But you have stuck around

You could have left me to my fate
Instead of carrying all the weight
Track Name: Bare My Soul
I haven’t stepped onto this path alone
But I have to finish it on my own
At first your words have inspired me
Now they remind me of who I’ll never be

I have stared into the abyss many times
As much as I have looked into your eyes

As soon as our love will cease
I will disappear piece by piece

As soon as our love will cease
I will disappear piece by piece
I can’t get my shit together
But this is now or never
Track Name: The Wicked Path
I haven’t figured it out yet
Can’t tell when hypocrites become a threat
I am in the belief that it is all fine
Isn’t a smile a good sign?

I have been chewed up and spit out
Left a bad taste in your mouth
You have pushed me around
I won’t lick my own wounds

You keep the upper hand
I won’t kneel down

You speak with a forked tongue
Try to entice the young
To follow your wicked path
It just fuels my wrath

I have been chewed up and spit out
Left a bad taste in your mouth
You have pushed me around
I won’t lick my own wounds

I won’t kneel down

I draw the line there
But where do you, where?
Track Name: Against The Odds
You’re the one who is dogged by bad luck
And it grows like a tree which is planted in your chest
Because when it rains it pours
And you’ve always pulled at locked doors

You’ve raised your hopes too high
Admit that you were born low
But every coin has two sides
It’s up to you which one you will show

It’s up to you which one you will show

Life is struggle and will never change
It’s all about to make ends meet
Even if it appears that all is lost
Snatch victory from the jaws of defeat
Track Name: Lethargy
The reek of thousand years
Sticks in clothes and on hands
The sons die before the fathers
Cos they can’t breathe in this waste land

What you don’t know
Won’t hurt you
The end comes slow
This world gives us our due

Everything had gone well
So let sleeping dogs lie
As soon as the cracks begin to show
It will collapse in a blink of an eye

What you don’t know
Won’t hurt you
The end comes slow
This world gives us our due

Learn from mistakes
Just to repeat them
Track Name: Cast Off
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
I won’t stay on memory lane

I want to chase the wildest dreams
And hope to find myself on the way
Is my life as hollow as it seems?
I won’t get an answer if I stay

Nothing ventured, nothing gained
I won’t stay on memory lane

One thing is for certain
I want to live a life of purpose

I am surrounded by nothing
But something detains me
My feet are not moving
I am my own worst enemy

Nothing ventured, nothing gained
I won’t stay on memory lane
Track Name: Broken Circle
Look what they have done to my soul,
When they’ve sucked out all the spirit
and took over control.
Pushed into the corner
there’s just one way to go.
I don’t hang my head if misery is below.

You try to impose your mind set on me.
You beat a dead horse
I know who I want to be.
All I can lose is my head.
As long as my heart is beating
I am far away from being dead.

I refuse it I don’t need it
I won’t admit if I can’t feel it

Thrown into a world full of hell
They try to keep me under their spell
I’ll walk my path til’ the end
With no help of the devils hand

I refuse it I don’t need it
I won’t admit if I can’t feel it
Track Name: The Heaviest Weight
I try to keep the wolf from the door
In my pockets there is nothing to grasp
Hard times try to hold me back
These times are like a plague

The heaviest weight
Won’t let me suffer less
The heaviest weight
I’m a hell of a mess

The hand that feeds
Is the one which gives the strap
I try to hide it
But this house can’t keep a secret

The heaviest weight
Won’t let me suffer less
The heaviest weight
I’m a hell of a mess

Lay down with the reaper
He offers a world of no pain
Because down on this earth
I can’t feel my self-worth
Track Name: Too Short
There is a place I claim
that you’ve offered to the world.
Your heart is blindfolded
but you’re not even concerned
Of what you have become
and why does it hurt.
Give me a reason to hold on
just one honest word.

You say it will all remain
But you try to numb the pain

The bond we’ve forged
is now more like a shackle.
Should I abandon the ship
when everything is so fragile?
The one I see
doesn’t fit the one that I used to know.
Tell me, when will your true colors show?

You say it will all remain
But you try to numb the pain

My arms are too short to keep you tight
My arms are too short to keep you tight
My arms are too short to keep you tight.
A frightening end is better than endless fright.
