Take Me Home 06:13
Reach out. Try to lose control Don’t doubt the language of the soul Breathe in and let me be your guide But somehow the blind still lead the blind Don’t leave, take me home! Teach me. Free me. Show me where to go Somewhere, out there Sometimes it’s too dark to see the light Despite you are trying to fix your mind Don’t leave, take me home! Teach me. Free me. Show me where to go Somewhere, out there It’s time for me to understand and take my demons by the hand Suddenly the walls come falling down But nowhere are the ruins to be found Suddenly I cry without a sound Should I move ahead toward all these uncertainties? Should I move ahead toward Move ahead toward all these uncertainties? Don’t leave, take me home!

Fade Away 04:19
No longer need to hide, it’s time to show them everything I am And so my thirst intensifies, no need to pretend I haven’t hungered for this state of mind. I can not hold myself together, I will break I can not change that in the end I will fade away The only sign of life Is hiding in my twisted mind And I haven’t even tried to find a way to keep it all inside I can not hold myself together, I will break I can not change that in the end I will fade away

They'll Win 04:42
I’ve never tried to look away from these eyes that made me stay for another day She touches me with greedy hands So I guess she understands where this will end Her poison tastes like candy When we all bow down to the crown they’ll win That’s how it all begins But if we all fall down to the ground we will be changing everything but our sins Her sugarcoated promises try to fill the emptiness of her caress Trick or treat it’s all the same Will there ever be a way to win this game, to keep me sane? Her lies become my wishes When we all bow down to the crown they’ll win That’s how it all begins But if we all fall down to the ground we will be changing everything but our sins When we all bow down to the crown they’ll win That’s how it all begins But if we all fall down to the ground we will be changing everything but our sins

Let Me Fly 04:45
I sit here all day in this empty room
Alone with all I need I sink away in gloom I pace up and down in this cage called home as I hide away from every living soul Sometimes I need to 
break these walls so I could see What it’s like out there, no more hiding from the inviting comfort I see in your eyes, or the kindness I find in your smile Guide me to a life out there, no more slumber, feed my hunger, widen the gaps in my blinds, take away all the clouds from the sky
Let me fly… Every timid step quiets my mind With every breath I take I leave some fears behind Sometimes I need to breach the door so I could see What it’s like out there, no more hiding from the inviting comfort I see in your eyes, or the kindness I find in your smile Guide me to a life out there, no more slumber, feed my hunger, widen the gaps in my blinds, take away all the clouds from the sky 
Let me fly…

Turn around You know you have to try To face your feelings all alone Don’t look down Let them see your eyes But save what’s secret and unknown They have been watching They’ve seen your pain They have been waiting For you to explain Why you’re so empty Why you’re so cold So are you ready for your heart to unfold? Take your time Try to unwind and breathe and find a way to ease the pain Don’t change your mind or you’ll be down on your knees You’ll go insane, no one to blame They have been watching They’ve seen your pain They have been waiting For you to explain Why you’re so empty Why you’re so cold So are you ready for your heart to unfold? Look for the big wheel turning round Turn after turn you’re losing ground It’ll go on forever Ever and ever not to be found

Colours 04:14
Do you really recognize 
these eyes so full of lies?
 Scrub the stains to no avail
 But each one tells a tale 
Colours change from black to grey
 once you wash that paint away
 Is today the day you’ll fall?
 And would you care at all?
 Smudge the ink and you will see
 how to be set free
 Colours change from grey to white
 once you wash away the night
 All your scars are here to stay
 Souvenirs from yesterday
 I guess you never knew 
that all you had to do 
was take a look inside 
 while looking for the truth
 A dollar for your fears
 which you have had for years 
I’ll make ‘em disappear I guess you never knew how to look for the truth
 Colours change from grey to white 
once you wash away the night
 All your scars are here to stay 
Souvenirs from yesterday

Why are we skeptical? It’s spinning inside us, it’s why we’re alive It’s so accessible, it always invites us, we’ll feel so revived There’s a bigger plan Soon we’ll understand We are The Light and we open doors We’re shining bright, brighter than before We are the future, move on and explore We are The Light inside We think we’re wide awake and so we rely on the things we can see Wait for the clouds to break before we can move on to what we really feel There’s more than meets the eye Soon we’ll realize We are The Light and we open doors We’re shining bright, brighter than before We are the future, move on and explore We are The Light Find me, hold me, save my soul Heal me, cure me, make me whole We are The Light and we open doors We’re shining bright, brighter than before We are the future, move on and explore We are The Light

Some Will... 04:14
Fall into the sky Run through the water Until the river runs dry Embrace one another Dig through the sand Unbury life’s secrets Come take my hand You just have to reach for it Some will stay behind Some will make it through Some will never try You are not to blame For going your own way You will know your name ‘cause I will tell you Where do we go from here? Shine through the dark And look into the distance Look for that spark That proves our existence Is the thrill of life just passing by? Is there a piece of heaven deep inside? Do you we suppress our spirits from within? We’ve never felt so alive Some will stay behind Some will make it through Some will never try You are not to blame For going your own way You will know your name ‘cause I will tell you Where do we go? Some will stay behind Some will make it through Some will never try You won’t stay behind You will make it through Some will tell you lies but you will know the truth. I will tell you
11.
Move your mountains, split the seas Give us hope, plant your seeds Soothe our desires, introduce your God Give us life, play our hearts Lie to me, pull me down, on my knees, make me bow And when we bow to your solution we fall for your lies We fear that all we know is shown by prophets in disguise Point your finger, we will follow
We will bow for tomorrow Pull the trigger, shoot with blanks
Aim for fear, play our heads Lie to me, pull me down, on my knees, make me bow And when we bow to your solution we fall for your lies We fear that all we know is shown by prophets in disguise Some will wake up Some will sleep endlessly Some search for The Truth Some will live carelessly Let go of fear The answer is near Take down the big wheel The time is now

Breathe: Out 05:19
I really tried to see what could have been Yet I pulled it down Why should we swim against the stream? You sailed away, I drowned Paralyzed Hypnotized Mesmerized I never gave you a chance to try ‘Cause I took away our precious time Like an echo I came back to you But you’re still out of reach I’ll try to raise my voice and speak the truth One word is all I need, but I can’t breathe I never gave you a chance to try You’ve always waited for me to realize I took away our precious time So you created a place to hide inside my mind What if the world would see us? What if the world would see us? We’ve carried on For far too long Like nothing’s wrong Take me Take me home, back to our lives Break me Build me up, please take your time
