Track Name: Utopia
four black walls
with missing corners
I'm trapped inside this den of torture
this darkness is consuming me
with a silence so still
it's blinding me
my mind goes into overdrive
and it feels like no time
passes by
all I can think of is the life I lived
is this my hell? my seventh sin?

I say to myself
it's all in your head
you'll soon wake up
in your bed
there's a demon on my shoulder
haunting me

you're all poluted
by your own neglect to see
all your past conquests
all your pathetic lack of ideas

we all fail sometimes
that's a fact of life
just open your mind
and turn things back around
there's no one holding you back but yourself
let go of the hate
show you’re free
and paint the world
with your love

with my heart
in your hand
absorb the tragedies
fade them from
my memory
don't let go
just hold on
collapse my walls of sanity
I'll finally be free

my mind goes into overdrive
and it feels like no time whatsoever
passes by
there is no time to lose
there is no looking back
this is your heaven
this is your hell

you're all polluted
by your own neglect to see
all your past conquests
all your pathetic lack of ideas

with my heart
in your hand
absorb the tragedies
fade them from
my memories
don't let go
just hold on
collapse my walls of sanity
I'll finally be free

the final sunset
the dawn of man
we're all in limbo
we're out of time
Track Name: Echoes
all I can hear are these damn echoes
all I can hear are these damn echoes
bouncing of walls in this hospital

leave it on the table, you can read it when i've left
never been that strong with words, I regret them as I speak
facing you is facing me, a thing I never did
heading for disaster in the footsteps of these sheep

I hate the way you all always spell love
in times new roman twelve point font
I'll leave it all in a post-it note
or with that song that we wrote about home

people always say to read between the lines
but there’s no longer any lines to read between
all the message is all the same
quotes by authours of books you haven’t even read
meanings and opinions you've gotten from someone else
we all struggle in our fathers footsteps
as they wore too big shoes for us to fill
thing is I’m now up to my knees now and Im stable
every step takes a long fucking time but at least I won’t fall over
least I won’t fall over

overdrinkers and underachievers
I can keep up with the best of them
taking back everything I've ever said
just to say it all over again

I hate the way you all always spell love
in times new roman twelve point font
I'll leave it all in a post-it note
or with that song that we wrote about home

about home
Track Name: Hiraeth
the whole world lives inside my house
but I haven't seen anyone in a while
shut my eyes as I walk across the street
to show that I
I have faith in me

we have all tried building houses before
watched them crumble in the scores
broken the hammers and worn out the saws
we only own what we buy, but when you're old and alone that's nothing at all
we only reap what we sow, but when you're dust, so is your crop

were all hiding in half a bottle
full when the struggle started
empty, when the battles over.

mine's now empty but I feel far from battle-worn
just torn, bursting at the seams

never have I seen this light of day
as we take away from our dreams and change
I'm planning the next great escape
one where I can look myself in the face
the house we built is without a single crooked nail

what you should have done is not just a missed opportunity
but a disease that lingers
linger to long and it becomes an infected thorn
to many thorns amounts to a life spent counting them all

I'm planning the next great escape
we have all tried building houses before
watched them crumble in the scores
broken the hammers and worn out the saws
we only own what we buy, when you're old and alone thats nothing at all
we only reap what we sow, when you're dust, so is your crop
Track Name: Clear
missaligned reality
Im digging for answers
Im down on my knees
but the deeper I go
further back I fade
am I digging for answers or digging my grave

bounce back up
explore your rebirth
find your true self within
and align with the earth
earth
create something new
paint your perfect picture
don't let the past bury you
chase your dreams
no matter the cost
as long as you are happy
never give it a second thought
thought´s
can be poisonous things
it's the end of this story
but now a new one begins

you must fall
to rise again
just stand your ground
on what you believe in

and the saddest part is
when I see my own reflection in the mirror
and see that I’m reborn
not broken, beat and torn
but I will never forget
cause this life is filled
with hate and love and death
until I draw
my last choking breath
I will stand by my choiches
not kneeling to voices

we all have dreams
regrets and fears
but don't get me wrong
they all got me here
I cherished that time
if I’d only known
it's the end of that story
but there's a new one just down the road
I will never forget
the things ive been trough
and I will never neglect
the moments I’ve shared
the show must go on
but the memories never fade

and the saddest part is
when I see my own reflection in the mirror
and see that I’m reborn
not broken, beat and torn
but I will never forget
cause this life is filled
with hate and love and death
until I draw
my last choking breath
I will stand by my choiches
not kneeling to voices

you must fall to rise again
but don’t be scared this is not the end
you'll learn and gain experience
I know Its hard to comprehend
but I see clear
