Track Name: Reminiscences
it all comes back to me now
when good times
cross bad times
like tides cross
every day

with you
in the midst
of it all

some things better stay forgotten
washed out pictures of moments already gone
already gone

the distance between you and me
is the only thing
that keeps me free

so if you look back what do you see
while the haze clears and another day begins
showing what you've been through
where you've been
what you did last summer
did last summer
Track Name: Mosaic
At dawn when my dreams are tumbling
tumbling over me
they throw
shadows as far as i can dream
as far as i.

and when the sun reaches ground
there will be nothing more
than an affection, fading
happiness disguised
lovely thies
coated
in blue skies

at dawn when my dreams are crashing
crashing over me
they throw
shadows as far as i can see
as far as i.
at dawn when my dreams are tumbling
over me
they throw shadows as far as i can dream
tear me apart

now
i see you
laughing
before me
let me
catch
one tear
the teardrop
the key
the teardrop
the key
encrypted i was
encrypted i'll be
can you scramble the pieces?
decode me!
Track Name: ...
As i walk away
everything turns to stone
with your words crumbling down my ears
i harden your tone and
you sharpen my tongue
-well done.
we come undone

shed a tear
give a fuck
last years's a goner and still i'm stuck
in this shithole town
our favourite time
our favourite place
where we're losing pace

my mind is chasing you
my eyes are burning through you
did i lose track or did you go missing?

Did i lose track
or did you?
hell what can i say
you said we'd meet but your voice was weak
you said
sometime, somewhere, again

so

Track Name: Interlude / Shiver
i'm growing five hearts out of one
it's a mess
they are all fake and
with every shiver
comes the ache
Getting lonely or
die trying not to

images i can't recall
they pass me by like a freight train
im hiding behind your walls
with the lesser picture
A stranger i used to know
is calling out your name
it's a mess
Track Name: Restless / Listless
a drive becoming the real view
i have the real view
you seem to
and i feel no one is real i feel
you're far more away than you appear

the mirror breaks as reflection fades
still you're more worn, all the different ways
i didnt know what i didn't see with emptiness around me

My life's becoming harder to see through
With all these choices
And crossroads
And Even though nothing seems real
You're still a part of it and i'm still here

And I don't want to but i'm still in a rut
My heart follows my mind but my mind is stuck
So all that is left is counting the hours and coursing the days

It seems like every obstacle on this way, was placed by me.
Responsible for every closed door.
Nothing but searching for something more
It feels like moving on the same spot for years, inept of forcing change.
No one to blame but half-empty mirrors. Hushed screams,
like a chocked monologue of self-injustice.
Settled on a lake, not on a river.
Standstill for a lifetime.
The shapes in the shadow are just sculptures.
Sculptures build by my own hand.
My mind tries to wander just to find the dam in my head

My life's becoming harder to see through
With all these choices
And crossroads
And Even though nothing seems real
You're still a part of it and i'm still here

And I don't want to but i'm still in a rut
My heart follows my mind but my mind is stuck
So all that is left is counting the hours and coursing the days
