Track Name: you & I
when you will regret, it will be to late
no I won’t wait, for you again
you and I together, could have been so great,
and yet, you failed to understand

darling I am not angry, I just can’t see
why is that the way, it has to be
holding other hips, to forget your song,
and then you turn to tell me that I’m wrong

darling I hoped for you and I
now I know you never really gave it a try
darling I longed for you and I
now I know it wasn’t more than just a sweet lie

It could have been a love song, about your smile
the one you send me, when you see me from a mile
we should have been together, singing duet
but I am singing solo with no accompaniment

It must have been a symphony, about your pretty face
instead I go and see you, with someone else
Anothony and Iris, sitting on the bend,
waiting for this opera to end

darling I hoped for you and I ...

darling I hoped for,
darling I longed for,
darling I wish you would have give it a try
Track Name: it feels like a mantra
it feels like we're moving but we're still here
it feels like we're moving but we're still here,

it feels like we're moving but we're still here,
it's so clear

ahhhh ahhhh

it feels like we're moving but we're still here
it feels like we're moving but we're still here,
it's so clear

it feels like we're moving but we're still here
it feels like we're moving but we're still here,
it's so clear

I've heard it all before,
I've been here I remember
now they're knocking on my door
i know exactly where we're going
I just cannot fight anymore

ahhhh
ahhhh

it fells like we're still here but we're moving
moving
Track Name: practicing catharsis

I guess that’s what I wanted

Track Name: poor lorraine
the day is almost done
now she’s rushing to the gate
she can’t afford herself being late
yes, every wednesday evening
you could find her on the railroad stop

she knows that only once a week
there is that magical half an-hour
seven trains go by exactly one after the other
oh poor Lorraine,
she came to visit the rumbling train

cause when it’s getting loud
and she feels the trembling ground
she knows no one can hear a sound
and only there peace can be found
when she can scream

Aaahhhh..

oh no she’s not taking a train
no she’s not going anywhere
long ago she gave up on herself
still, every wednesday evening
you could find her on the railroad stop

cause when it’s getting loud
and she feels the trembling ground
she knows no one can hear a sound
and only there peace can be found
when she can scream

Aaahhhh..

the last train now has gone
and she is standing all alone
slowly slowly guilt start taking on
oh poor Lorraine
that’s the only way she can carry on

Aaahhhh..
Track Name: higher
everybody’s thinking ‘bout themselves all the time
everyone around and so am I
and everybody’s taking their own shit so seriously
and honestly I can’t see why

no one seems to mind about the mess they left behind
and if no one seems to mind so why should I
cause everybody’s thinking bout themselves all the time
everyone around and mostly I

I’m trying to be better than this
I can see and I can feel it
oh, I just don’t know where to start
I’m gonna go higher above
and I came to take you with me
Oh I’m gonna go
even without you
without you

everyone I know is so fucking insecure
so they take a drug’ they need a cure
yes, everyone I know is dependent on a lie,
is leaning on a cure
everyone I know and I know myself

I’m trying to be better than this
I can see and I can feel it
oh, I just don’t know where to start
I’m gonna go higher above
and I came to take you with me
Oh I’m gonna go
even without you
without you

no one wants to be all alone by themselves
no one wants but that’s where we feel safe
cause everybody’s thinking ‘bout what everybody’s thinking
it’s too much thinking
all the time, all around, everyone is so...

everybody’s searching who’s in charge for this shame
just show the man we’ll burn him with our flame
you see, I’ve done looking for my fools, I have no name,
we know we need someone to blame so here I am
Track Name: failure meditation attempts
breath in, breath out
don’t think about anything at all
breath in, breath out
just let your mind be empty, there’s no goal

who am I kidding
I’m incapable of winning
only myself that I’m bruising
I’m incapable of loosing
of choosing
so what am I,
supposed to do,
just sit here and watch me fall apart

breath out
just let your thoughts run in front of you
breath in, breath out
just let it go, there’s nothing you can do

who am I kidding
I’m incapable of winning
only myself that I’m bruising
I’m incapable of loosing
of choosing
so what am I,
supposed to do,
just sit here and watch me fall apart

breath in, breath out ...

just let it go, there’s nothing you can do
just let it go, there’s nothing you can do

I wanna let it got, it’s just so hard to do
I wanna let it go, I am I really do

will you forgive yourself, we are all so proud of you
will you forgive yourself, we are all so proud of you

what's meant to happen happens so they say
just let it go and soon will come your day

breath out
