Track Name: Man Overboard
MAN OVERBOARD

I find myself in this state
where lucid longings are trapped inside a stained glass
leaving me restless and breathless
hoping to wake up when it's over
hoping to wake up when it's over

I tend to live in the past
and wait around for another chance
eventhough I know the buttons have been pressed

waking up and finding myself sailing off a storm
setting things in motion
cant I really do anything but hold on?

I find myself in this state
where I try to realize what I could've done to get me back
and then I'm back feeling empty

no time to hold your breathe
feeling empty

waking up and finding myself sailing off a storm
setting things in motion
cant I really do anything but hold on?

memories of the past
and struggles of the present
and illusions of the future
always make me wanna look back
find an escape

I tend to live in the past
and wait around for another chance
eventhough I know the buttons have been pressed

now to you I surrender
father, father to you I surrender
to you I surrender
Track Name: Shoot to Kill
SHOOT TO KILL

Who are you to say
this the end of the line?
never utter a word of who's to blame
or you're gonna get it

I dont know why you're crying
this is what you need
to excite, inspire and ignite

you know what you should do?
take a needle and draw an infinite line
coz this time
we're never gonna let them take us down
all glory comes from the daring to begin
so keep fighting

Shoot to Kill

show us what you got
take it from one moment to the next
leave no room for regrets
every hero has his moments
Whatever the struggle
back in the saddle
taking back our lives

Shoot to kill
We're never gonna let them take us down

our number's up soon
when that happens
give them hell
Track Name: Signals
SIGNALS

this is the fight for the throne
I'm ready, I'm scared but I'm all ready now
the feeling - adrenaline's rushing out of my soul

all eyes on us
the intensity is burning down the crowd
all eyes on us

this is the clash, the battle of the dominoes
I'm not gonna leave till all is done

the nerves are breaking
my hands are shaking
soon it'll be over now

one fight to end this tragedy
one fight, to you I promise

this is the fight for the throne
I will face you in the ring
the feeling: adrenaline's rushing out of my soul

the nerves are breaking
my hands are shaking
soon it'll be over now

one fight to end this tragedy
one fight, to you I promise

save yourselves!
trample through this pool of hate
I'm clutching tight
heart don't fail me now

forgive me father for I have sinned
all the saints and rosaries have turned their backs on the enemy
the wolves have come to feast on their prey
now pray

this one means everything

one fight to end this tragedy
one fight, to you I promise

your life, your fight!
your life, our fight!

this is the fight for the throne
Track Name: Play Pause
PLAY PAUSE

I've been looking for a story worth my time
been to places and spaces and everything in between
been through tangled bedsheets
and torn-up letters
never have I been a victim of this
till that kiss

can't stop singing about it
won't stop singing

My heart is standing at the edge of a cliff
waiting to fall
keep my head, keep my head
I keep myself locked in
I kept myself locked in
from this desire
oh, desire

Rewind, backtrack

I've been miscalculating and callous
and now I'm off to fix another dirty bed
oh, killing time just a little bit faster
coz what's the point in staying here if it's you
I want

so wait, wait a little longer
so wait, wait a little longer
oh, you came along and I
think your story's worth my time
worth my time
Track Name: Sleeping with Secrets
SLEEPING WITH SECRETS

why should we stop
don't you think that we're getting carried away
in this city full of lights
and secrets that we're dying to keep

you caught me as I fell
of all these secrets built
I'll keep this best one
for myself
Don't be scared, dont be scared

It's alright, alright
don't you worry bout me having things to say
I'm alright, alright
all you have to do is ask me

What can I do to keep you?
what can I do to keep you inside?
would I need to make you fall again
beneath our city?
hear me say

it's a shame to keep this good thing going on
never letting it see the light of day

I'll be the reason of it all
stolen moments that would come to make you feel
insane
the kind you'd want to feel over and over again
in this secret
the truth of it all
I'm stealing words to make me feel
you're my addicting contradiction
that makes me feel alright

Would you believe that?
I'll keep you inside
Track Name: Sailing Paper Ships
SAILING PAPER SHIPS

We've had our let downs
sinking at the bottom of this wishing well
all mistakes, mishaps
take all fall backs
We wanted clarity
but damn another tragedy
sinking at the botttom of this wishing well
oh well, we sure as hell ain't gonna get it

And I'm sinking slowly now
shipwrecked and stranded
you're feeling perfectly fine
where does this leave me?

And I'm sinking slowly now
shipwrecked and stranded

Shipwrecked and stranded
we don't have to die
this love is screaming for you to hold me
that I won't have to be alone
so sit tight, coz nothing has change
stay now if you wanna stay or have you been slowly
fading away

Don't tell me it's over
never say never
it's not the end
this is just beginning
this is just beginning
we don't have to die
Track Name: Hearts on our Skin
Hearts on our Skin

they, they tell me I'm better off
I puncture and wound and bleed
to me it's a portrait
a journey of self discovery

to them, that's never really the case
how 'bout we sing it while showing it all?
these colors are my stories
and a riddle for them to unfold

dotted lines to find my way back
marking crimes to find my way back
keep track of time
yes, I am different

they, they tell me
like I'm some kind of dead beat sinner
I know what you're thinking
it's not their place
no they don't
news flash to y'all
there's a reason why gold doesn't glitter
it's for the wanderers not to get lost
you see pieces that are strong does not wither
but thrusting deep roots
just makes it better

dotted lines to find my way back
marking crimes to find my way back
keep track of time
yes, I am different

these lines are sacred
these colors my banners
this is us, this is me
proud to wear our hearts on our skin

beautiful moments kept, every moment seized
broken promises, lessons to keep
life to welcome and life that leaves
yes, this is us, this is me
proud to wear our hearts on our skin

proud to wear our hearts
Track Name: WTF
WTF

the curtain's finally closing in on you
just a little show of faith
no need to try and fight it
finally washing off the taste of you in my bed
un-remember all the hate

counting down the unholy hours of this god-given night
every movement of the hand
brings about revelations
ticking like a time bomb
the minute hand is tired
it wants to wave less "goodbyes" and more "hellos"

no more fighting to get you out of my head
to get you out of my head
nothing left to think about
no more holding on to every single word you said

say hello to the day

Cant say I didn't wish I had to
take it all back and leave all the pieces on the floor
thanks for the memories, but i cant do this anymore

the curtain's finally closing in on you
just a little show of faith
no need to try and fight it
finally washing off the taste of you in my bed
un-remember all the hate

pondering over and over and over
figure out what's the good in this goodbye
words should mean so much more
Your actions lie louder than words
now im ready to say less goodbyes and more hellos

say hello to the day

I know it's gonna take me more than one night
give me a few years time and I'll be able to
remember you, then smile

I know it's gonna take me more than one night
give me a few years time and I'll be able to
reminisce those beautiful lies
Track Name: Set the Mood
SET THE MOOD

not another word from you
not another step back
tell me this is not a mistake
set the mood right
I told myself this is the last time

give me your time
give me your tongue
don't tell me that it's another mistake
give me your time
give me your tongue
don't be afraid of the choices we make

told myself that I can't hold this one down
told myself that I can't hold this one

let's set this place
all ablaze
come on baby
all ablaze
come on baby

no need for me
to whisper brilliant words
it's already tempting for us
being together now
no need to dance another masquerade
now that I see

told myself that I can't hold this one down
told myself that I can't hold this one

let's set this place
all ablaze
come on baby
all ablaze
come on baby
it's pulling me tight

so tonight
steady your breathing
calling out
shifting the tides
so tonight
sweep me towards your seas
calling out
let's bring back that feeling

give me your time
give me your tongue
Track Name: You're Fire
YOU'RE FIRE

Where can I go?
Where can I take this restless heart
meant for somebody
to be with...

I want to feel you every dawn
to hear your words like fire
hands clinched
like a hammer that breaks a rock into pieces

I always find myself counting
these days & nights do I deserve
Shouting words to the heavens
knowing it extends that far

in my deepest wound, you showed me your glory
and it was fascinating
now I always leave a crack in the door
to let your light shine in

Where can I go?
Where can I take this restless heart
meant for somebody
to be with...
Track Name: We're on to You
WE'RE ON TO YOU

Same old story
can't wait to hear another tragedy caused by you

Sharp tongues and arrogant lies
pointed fingers like pointed knives
on our backs
we're on to you!

here's another scene
where your vanity predominates
to have your everyday fill for
Your need to be right
to prove you're oh so..

how can you learn
if you only listen to yourself speak?
and workship your reflection

Sharp tongues and arrogant lies
pointed fingers like pointed knives
on our backs
we're on to you!

Yes, this is about you so hear me out

how can you learn
if you only listen to yourself speak?

we're on to you!
everyone's on to you!

Same old story
can't wait to hear another tragedy caused by you
