Track Name: Keepsake
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
Track Name: Smile & Sigh
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
Track Name: Static
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!
Track Name: Little Tired
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
