Track Name: White Shoe Green Shirt
[Verse1]
I can break you down, I can tear you apart
Your trash’s all around. Here you try to make your plays
Found in me
Ok. Hum.

[Pre-Chorus]
I guess you know, that you let go
I've tried to find, why did you so?
You know I thrive when you can't give
Remains forsaken me

[Chorus]
I made you say, I hate this way
Made you a song, and it went wrong
It's time to look at you past

[Verse2]
I still dream about, breaking down all my vows
You fed me somehow. There a mind that just obeys
Boundaries needs.
Ok. Hum.

[Pre-Chorus]
I guess you know, that you let go
I've tried to find, why did you so?
You know I thrive when you can't give
Remains forsaken me

[Chorus]
I made you say, I hate this way
Made you a song, and it went wrong
It's time to look at you past

[Interlude]
The feet in between the others
My speech. Bottom up the risk
A piece of love is hidden
A disease, but nobody will ever discover
Track Name: Thoughts
[Verse1]
Thoughts...! Take shape.
I watch the monster growing, makes me feel like floating
Halt! Your life.
I came to cause destruction, you clearly haven't the notion

For space! This fight won't take too long
Sleepless thoughts... makes! this creature born!

[Chorus]
Your disgrace fulfills my parade
Marching sadness, you won't break my day
my beliefs are... the tombstone of your grave
Struggling for life I will beat your sayings

[Verse2]
Thoughts...! Take shape.
I watch the monster growing, makes me feel like floating
Halt! Your life.
I came to cause destruction, you clearly haven't the notion

For space! This fight won't take too long
Sleepless thoughts... makes! this creature born!

[Chorus]
Your disgrace fulfills my parade
Marching sadness, you won't break my day
my beliefs are... the tombstone of your grave
Struggling for life I will beat your sayings
Track Name: Long Ago
[Verse1]
It grows in me oh I can't hide
Can’t get this freak show out of my mind
I have never felt so wrong
Welcome to the paranoia town

Wish I had some other words to speak
But I'm tired of hypocrisy

[Verse2]
Your broken bones are falling apart
I could help (you) but my hands are tide
Burning everything you touch
Shouts of pain makes you pray to much

Wish I had some other words to speak
But I'm tired of hypocrisy

[Chorus]
Long ago in this place I’ve lost my soul
I felt safe and all i want is run away
Regretting soul i have never felt so wrong
Say me something while I’m feeling weak and cold

[Verse3]
It grows in me oh I can't hide
Can’t get this freak show out of my mind
I have never felt so wrong
Welcome to the paranoia town

Wish I had some other words to speak
but I'm tired of hipocrisy

[Chorus]
Long ago in this place I’ve lost my soul
I felt safe and all i want is run away
Regretting soul i have never felt so wrong
Say me something while I’m feeling weak and cold
Track Name: Freedom
[Verse 1]
Freedom
I choose it for myself, can't blame nobody else
Freedom
I choose it for myself, can't blame nobody else

[Pre-Chorus]
When you're blind you feel free
When you're broke you feel tied in
But when you lose all your hope
Then freedom is a mind stroke.
Will you wait your turn to speak
Or will you even try to listen?
I'm dying you see from the inside out
Done outside, phony inside.

[Chorus]
Feel freeeeeeeee
I choose it for myself
Feel freeeeeeeee
I choose it for myself
Stranger, crazy

[Verse 2]
Freedom
I choose it for myself, can't blame nobody else
Freedom
I choose it for myself, can't blame nobody else

[Pre-Chorus]
When you're blind you feel free
When you're broke you feel tied in
But when you lose all your hope
Then freedom is a mind stroke.
Will you wait your turn to speak
Or will you even try to listen?
I'm dying you see from the inside out
Done outside, phony inside.

[Chorus]
Feel freeeeeeeee
I choose it for myself
Feel freeeeeeeee
I choose it for myself
Stranger, crazy
[Interlude]
When you are down you feel sorrow and lose all your hope
When you are broken you feel so tired and (the) freedom is a mind stroke
Feel free
I choose it for myself

[Pre-Chorus]
When you're blind you feel free
When you're broke you feel tied in
But when you lose all your hope
Then freedom is a mind stroke.
Will you wait your turn to speak
Or will you even try to listen?
I'm dying you see from the inside out
Done outside, phony inside.

[Chorus]
Feel freeeeeeeee
I choose it for myself
Feel freeeeeeeee
I choose it for myself
Stranger, crazy
Track Name: Foolish Endeavor
[Verse 1]
Hear me now
Make me shout
Show me how
I must say I’m sorry

Feel me now (saying that I’m sorry)
Comeback
I have nothing to follow
I just wanna tell you how I’m hollow

[Pre-chorus]
I think you know my game
Running again and again
There is no one else to blame
More and more i must feint

[Chorus]
In this world there's no one
Who could be there
As i hope
I’m trying to make
Waiting for your signal
As the night falls
I need to know
Satisfy my life

[Verse 2]
Wear your crown
Make your vows
Show me how
I couldn't say I'm sorry

[Pre-chorus]
I think you know my game
Running again and again
There is no one else to blame
More and more i must feint

[Chorus]
In this world there's no one
Who could be there
As i hope
I’m trying to make
Waiting for your signal
As the night falls
I need to know
Satisfy my life

[Bridge]
We don’t know much
We don’t know much
And it’s over
Track Name: Saving Me
[Verse1]
When you tried to make things right you messed with your own life
All you do is complain
When you fell in love and chose to run away
Life can’t give what you gave
Now you regret it it’s too late to go back
Can’t change a path that you once were at
Your choices looked right at the time you felt free
I’m standing alone

[Chorus]
Who will save me? Who will forgive?
Who will fix those things that I’ve done?
What will save me? I’m standing alone
Bring me your guidance show me your way

[Verse2]
I insist to believe we can’t really exist
All i got is my hate
Since i left everything has lost its meaning
Everyone's gone away
My lonely way of living each day
Gotta breath away and take my life again
If you leave me a chance to prove my regret
Can’t stand being alone

[Chorus]
Who will save me? Who will forgive?
Who will fix those things that I’ve done?
What will save me? I’m standing alone
Bring me your guidence show me your way

[Chorus]
Who will save me? Who will forgive?
Who will fix those things that I’ve done?
What will save me? I’m standing alone
Bring me your guidence show me your way

[Bridge]
We'll be laughing and sharing our love again
We'll be searching for life and joy again
We'll be giving ourselves like no one else
We'll make
[Interlude]

Ohhhh we'll be living again as you know
My friend, save your last shot of faith, for this moment
And again, we will make it for ourselves, like no one else, no one else

[Bridge]
We'll be laughing and sharing our love again
We'll be searching for life and joy again
We'll be giving ourselves like no one else
We'll make
Track Name: The Place Where I Don't Belong
[Verse 1]
Falseness lies in the air
Sad little faces everywhere
The days lacks meaning

Now it's known, this place ain't where i belong

Same old purpose again
Actions brings discontent
Why keep waiting

Now it's known, this place ain't where i belong

[chorus]
Hold strong deep inside
Know what's right and wrong
Show no hesitation
Remember, the fight goes on

[Verse 2]
Lies being told, they don't care
Loud false laughters i hear
The days lacks meaning

Now it's known, this place ain't where i belong

Rising walls all around
All those lives passing by
So why keep waiting

Now it's known, this place ain't where i belong

[chorus2]
Hold strong deep inside
Know what's right and wrong
Show no hesitation
Remember, the fight goes on
Cuz I won't give nothing away
It makes me inspired everyday
Keep my mind free from it all
And always, the fight goes on

Now it's known, this place ain't where i belong

Now it's known, this place ain't where i belong
Track Name: Saving You
[Verse 1]
Won't you try and consider seeing life with different eyes
There is so much more than your disguises
What if i could show the way to go when no one(nobody) knows
Wish you'd let me prove that i am right

[Chorus]
In this troubled world outside i'll be there when you're alone
In this times when faith will hide i will show the way through light
Let this grow, in your heart.
You should know, that i never meant no harm

[Verse 2]
Putting down the words that you already should have heard
Now you know i can remain that close

[Chorus]
In this troubled world outside, i'll be there when you're alone
In this times when faith will hide, i will show the way through light
Let this grow, in your heart.
You should know, that i never meant no harm

[Interlude]

Let me hold on to you
Let me show more than you know
I've given all my life to you
Fill the void inside my soul

[Interlude 2]
I'll wait for you, until my last day i shall prove
I'll wait for you, the life i'm bound to pursue
I'll wait for you, every word i said is tru e
I'll wait for you

[Chorus 3]
In this troubled world outside, i'll be there when you're alone
I will not give up now

In this troubled world outside, i'll be there when you're alone
In this times when faith will hide, i will show the way through light
Let this grow, in your heart.
You should know, that i never meant no harm
Track Name: Turning Away
[Verse1]
Feeling this is so wrong
Hidden in my space for long
I can’t hold on still
You let my mind stray for long long long

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m feeling fine now
I’m feeling so away. Away
I’m stepping outside
And I’ll turn away. Turning Away

[Chorus]
Every day you grow inside of me
Someplace to hide and dream my I need
It’s too late to show we'll never be
Cause there is no else for me
If i let go would you fall for me
You take my soul my mind and sleep
Way to proud i won’t change a thing
What left i craved with misery

[Verse2]
Fighting this is so wrong
Don’t let your heart waiting too much
The day you cried for me
Was the day I’ve waited for long long long

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m feeling fine now
I’m feeling so away. Away
I’m stepping outside
And I’ll turn away. Turning Away

[Chorus]
Every day you grow inside of me
Someplace to hide and dream my I need
It’s too late to show we'll never be
Cause there is no else for me
If i let go would you fall for me
You take my soul my mind and sleep
Way to proud i won’t change a thing
What left i craved with misery
