Track Name: We Have To Go Back
Hat in hand like a child that hides in his mother's skirt
Delicate and solitary
You taught me not to draw those cynical conclusions
And give in to hate
Now you've become some obnoxious asshole
Eating your words with a side of bitterness
A match and gasoline
A heart of plasticine with no concerns
Track Name: Cutting Circles
Many times I've been angry, out of my mind
Instead of letting things go or let them be
Many times I've retraced steps out of memory
And it always led me here
Uncertainty
Reasonable doubt
Losing a battle to the world
Dreaming about a million miles

Waiting and cutting circles in a perfect line

I can see you really don’t understand me
But I had no doubt that we would see it through
Can’t believe you would call me the enemy
But now it seems to me it ain't so sad
Our falling out
This is my letter to the world
Figure it out

A million miles, a million smiles, a million times
Waiting and cutting circles in a perfect line

I won’t stay, you can’t save this empty lie anyway
It is not of your concern what I’ve lost and what I’ve learned
Track Name: Magnitogorsk
She is the space behind the mountain
She is the face that’s long forgotten
She wants an answer that's not a lie
Without the pressure, without saying goodbye

Like her childhood painting on the wall
Nearly straight
Like a bully playing the victim in an empty mall
The rats will own this town

Nobody needs to be read the writing on the wall
They won’t hear the call
Nobody knows about your broken heart or where it’s from
They see nothing wrong

Beyond the mountain
Feeding the magnet to the ground
Beyond the mountain
Your heart still breaks without a sound

Nobody needs to be read the writing on the wall
They won’t hear the call
Nobody knows about your broken heart or where it’s from
They see nothing wrong
Track Name: Gemini
Sidewalk covered in her heavy tears and no one noticing
Billboard sign overhead that reads “now or never”
Can’t remember when this thing was full of possibilities
Fucking anxiety spreading like a cancer
The sight of your face is too sickening
When we both try to move on with our lives
Your game was rigged from the beginning
And i could never cheat your house

He’s losing hope - she won’t forget
The perfect illusion of promises
He holds this grudge - she won’t forgive
No resolution, no second chances
Leave it to them to give this lie one more round

She moved on and watched as everything around fell into place
Living a life of illusions
As she carefully ignored the signs of failure

All the things she’ll never know
All the care he failed to show
Wrong place and wrong time
Simple as that

Pathetic liars
Hate to say i told you so
In the end you got what you deserve
Track Name: Samurai
We went south across the river
Nothing really mattered
Bumper cars, cheap beers and chasers
Every night that summer

We were told our best years would go fast
So make a point to waste them your own way

We shut up cause the Fifth Element is on
Up all night we’re powering on
We’re spending everything we’ve got, on the run
Now the thing’s on my mind

Where would I be now if I didn’t have you to confide in every day?
Another round to jolt my memory
Lost at sea, hopeless till the end
Like that kid from 99
Growing old and growing down
Till he was found

We came home ready for winter
Nothing lasts forever
Bumper cars, cheap beers and chasers
Every night that summer

If this place is messing with your head
Forget your disillusions
You can pick up the phone
And simply call me

We shut up cause the Fifth Element is on
Up all night we’re powering on
We’re spending everything we’ve got, on the run
Now the thing’s on my mind

Where would I be now if I didn’t have you to confide in every day?
Another round to jolt my memory
Lost at sea, hopeless till the end
Like that kid from 99
Growing old and growing down
Till he was found

Till I break down

We’re old and wiser with no fucking answers
Without the same rage nor the time now
Track Name: The Skin Of The Back
When the make-up is gone, the clothes have come undone
Can't stand looking at myself in the mirror
I just have to be her, forget to remember
That what's wrong with me is simply that my body hates me

Each day I keep hoping for miracles
My reflection stays the same
I hide alone inside this cubicle
Nobody can help me but myself

This place is only for losers
I guess I really belong here

Each day I keep hoping for miracles
My reflection stays the same
Cutting deep, the skin is unbreakable
Replaced by a shell of misery

Just never mind her, she's just a wannabe
And all along you thought she led you on
Don't have the balls to stick around for her

My body hates me and I can't find
A way to end this suffering
I've been told that I need to unwind
And to enjoy life but I won't settle down
For the same endless search for your forgiveness
Track Name: Looper
The room looks better in the dark like every night
Walls no longer closing in
Demons keeping away from me
A fool in the dark without purpose, aim, or bearing
A look in the eye that wonders why

Never really had trust in light, it’s all too bright
Figure of authority
There should be more people like me
More fools in the dark without movement, goals or ideas
The look in our eyes just wonders why

When every thought comes under scrutiny
My actions will betray my instability
Give me some time or turn your back on me
I will not remember the way i used to feel

The room sounds better with a fight
We realized we could not make it better
Letting go's never that easy
We're fools in the dark without love, trust or compassion
The truth in our eyes don't wonder why

We can carry on, you set the tone
You lead the way and turn me off
I had enough, I’m choking on the words that made it all so tough

There's a voice inside my head and its song is meaningless
Playing on and on until every note is wrong
