Keepsake 02:39
I can't see the light, that everyone keeps talkin' 'bout all the time And I couldn't read the signs the signals you were sending, were more than mixed This should've lasted longer not fall apart at the seams! What is it that you really need We keep getting older, well, at least I'm getting closer...falling out again, breaking down again „Hm really this is aching. Well I guess you were mistaken“...falling out again, breaking down again You don't see the lines, the lines you kept crossing a thousand times Brights signs and traffic lights, you keep running over, over again This should've lasted longer, not fall apart at the seams! What is it that you really need We keep getting older, well, at least I'm getting closer...falling out again, breaking down again This statue I am carving out of blood and filthy garbage...what a monument, breaking down again We keep getting older, well, at least I'm getting closer...falling out again, breaking down again „Hm really this is aching. Well I guess you were mistaken“...falling out again, breaking down again

Smile & Sigh 02:51
It all started out like the same old shit – again Tension's heating up And now we're stuck with sour grapes Everything just goes downhill, we're... ...safe and sound, but the world is going down We just can't reverse this curse Pushing me, is it all just self defense To keep up the lie we live Fake a smile and sigh, should've known it all the time The masquerade is slowly wearing off. Falling by the wayside. Grind your teeth and cry. But I don't wanna feel the hurt, we're... ...safe and sound, but the world is going down We just can't reverse this curse Pushing me, is it all just self defense To keep up the lie we live ...safe and sound, but the world is going down We just can't reverse this curse Pushing me, is it all just self defense To keep up the lie we live

Static 02:34
So you lost hope along the way The demise is on display Sprawling underground for years And every time she brought it up Your ignorance was bliss enough To stay happy in your cave You're losing every single game There's not a word that I could say Repeating all the same old lines We won't go down with, down without a fight The saddest song on the radio The static sound of falling snow Kept your windows shut all day Cars outside are passing by Yeah while you are passing time - just forgive yourself The things we break, we replace But you just can't take the taste Of lonely nights and ashtray stacks What was once your worst nightmare Is now your waking dream instead While you're rotting in your cell You're losing every single game There's not a word that I could say Repeating all the same old lines We won't go down with, down without a fight The saddest song on the radio The static sound of falling snow Kept your windows shut all day Cars outside are passing by Yeah while you are passing time - just forgive yourself Be prepared for rainy days Just be sure you're not alone I don't want to see you drown!

Little Tired 03:06
You're out out on the streets tonight You're feelin' a little tired & I can't see this going on for years No, words are not enough, if they stay stuck inside your head Buried in your heart, between your lips Bloodshot eyes everyday, sun scaring you away, but you just keep it waiting... And when the lights go out Shadows ruling out the doubts and darkness that are stuck behind your eyes It seems everything you've got, is sunken at the bottom of a bottle it goes on and on and on.... Those headphones comfort you These records seem to show some beauty there), where others see a wreck Sometimes words courage you, and nights they comfort you Anyway, what's left when nothing counts? Hungover everyday, life scaring you away, so let's just keep it waiting... And when the lights go out Shadows ruling out the doubts and darkness that are stuck behind your eyes It seems everything you've got, is sunken at the bottom of a bottle it goes on and on and on.... Somehow this whole thing falls apart Too much fun just makes you slip away After a million wasted nights Right reasons seem to fade
