Track Name: Whirlwind
So many thoughts in your head
sit down, relax a bit
there's too much fear but you won't fail

Whirlwind is about to come
and wash us all, for good

I lie down here not over it
lie down here just wait for it
if you breath it doesn't mean you're alive, just let go

There is dust
it blurs the way
It's a fight, and nothing else

Whirlwind is about to come
and wash us all, for good.
Track Name: Seeds Of Arrogance
Sadness defines this place,
oh my disgrace is nothing new.
Lies wrapped in silk and gold
will represent this wars
when the day will come.
Revolution now,
I can hear the cry,
leaders, speeches, applause,
here it starts again.

Bombs fall like rain
nothing’s changed.
It's a minefield of
love and hope.

Sickness defines this place,
seeds of arrogance
grow every day.
Revolution now,
I can hear the shouts,
Leaders, speeches, applause
Here It starts again.

Bombs fall like rain
nothing’s changed.
It's a minefield of
love and hope.
Track Name: Beg Of You
We all destroy,
we all wait
And no one is never blamed
We’re all small, we're all frail
No one is safe.

Can’t you see me
I stand in front of you
Beg of you.
Can't you see that,
I'm the same as you
Beg of you.

We all destroyed
what we’ve all built
and bombs are falling everywhere.
We all fear
and we're all so brave
No one is safe.

Can’t you see me
I stand in front of you
Beg of you.
Can't you see that,
I'm the same as you
Beg of you.
Track Name: Replace It
I'm staring at the door,
then I'm staring at the window
while the clock on my desk
keeps ticking on every step.
The pressure in my chest,
a warning sign I didn't ask for

But you can replace it,
you can’t deny it,
you can replace it,
you can’t deny it.

It's all in our head
it's all in our head

well, I guess you can complain about it,
scream, shout, and then talk about it,
you said you feel insecure,
faint and frail,
now look at you.

you can replace it
you can’t deny it
you can replace it
you can’t deny it

it's all in our head
it's all in our head.
Track Name: Thousand Knives
How could you dare,
leave me like that,
leave me like that.
So much goes on in my mind
so much to tell, so much to share.
And I know I should be more brave
but I'm so afraid, I'm so afraid.

And I couldn’t look at myself
i was ashamed, so ashamed
and I couldn’t look at your eyes
i was afraid, so afraid.

In a little piece of my mind
hides a man, living a lie.
And I wish I could take it all back
but now it’s too late, now it's too late.

And I couldnt talk to you
you weren’t there.
I can feel it cutting through my bones
this pain, it won't leave.

Oh it's so cold here alone
like thousand knives in my bones.

And I couldn’t look at myself
I was ashamed, so ashamed.
And I couldn’t look at your eyes
I was afraid, so afraid.
Track Name: Empty Thoughts
Where are you
I'm falling down
don't you hear that sound
I'm crashing to the ground.
It’s been too long
now I just pretend
in my head there’s a storm and now,
there is no way out.

i’ll lie down
hate won’t help this time,
I will not ask why, I will know.
One day it won't hurt, I swear,
save your mind
from empty thoughts.

Wait, hang on,
there’s a way to live
there's no time to waste
don’t fall in sorrow.

now watch them,
There's no harder way,
you will walk right in
to the war.
Then one day,
i’ll lie down, i'll rest
I will not ask why,
I will know.
Track Name: Ambitions
Sorrow, in my room tonight.
The devil. is looking for a friend
in hard times.

And it's my life, my life
I'm taking with me,
and it's my time, my time
I'm wasting.

Ambitions, were on my windowsill
Desires,
they’re falling piece by piece.

And it's my life, my life
I'm taking with me,
and it's my time, my time
I'm wasting.

Ambitions, ambitions...
Track Name: Fog
I stare at you, from down below,
I am getting punched up again.
It's too much for me to fill
I am going to explode.
I cannot explain the way I felt,
I was speechless,
i've been waiting for so long,
please clear up the fog.

I'm sinking into the sand,
i've got scratches all over my back
i’ve got to find myself.
There's nothing here to remind
i’ve got no one here by my side
i’ve got to find myself.

A new day has brought me light,
I'm rising up again.
I can almost feel the sun,
but, something’s pulling me inside
i've been waiting for so long,
please, clear up the fog.

I'm sinking into the sand,
i've got scratches all over my back
i’ve got to find myself.
There's nothing here to remind
i’ve got no one here by my side
i’ve got to find myself.
Track Name: There Is a War
Is it Allright,
to walk that way
is it enough,
or is there more to give
is there a light,
can you hear me.

Is it that hard
to embrace your fears
Is it that hard
to dry those tears from your eyes.

I close my eyes, I see you there
You stare at me, so quiet now
While in my mind ,there is a war
which side is right, which side is wrong

Is it allright,
to walk that way
Is it enough,
or is there more to give.

I close my eyes, I see you there
You stare at me, so quiet now
While in my mind ,there is a war
which side is right, which side is wrong.
Track Name: They All Just Stand In Line
they all just stand in line
they’re waiting with big smiles
I'm wondering what for
they all have selfish minds
get away from me.
they all just stand in line
they’re waiting for their time.

I'm stumbling
I'm falling
please wake me up
I'm so scared.

Clowns are chasing me
every night in my sleep
they’re pushing me
into a big hot lake
I'm sinking again

I'm climbing now into their mind
I must save me.

Tonight I’ll spread my wings.
