Track Name: Breathe: In
Instrumental
Track Name: Take Me Home
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!
Track Name: Fade Away
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
Track Name: They'll Win
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
Track Name: Let Me Fly
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…
Track Name: The Big Wheel
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
Track Name: Breathe: Hold
Instrumental
Track Name: Colours
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
Track Name: We Are The Light
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
Track Name: Some Will...
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
Track Name: Prophets in Disguise
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
Track Name: Breathe: Out
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
