Track Name: The Divide
It just feels like yesterday,
Those words numbed me
Like a blunt blade.
I was alive and yet so far away.
My mouth was shut,
But my heart was crying.

It just feels like a thousand days,
The sea is calm,
The pain went all away.
The truth lies within yourself.
Love can be found,
Even in the darkest place.
This is the fire to burn my pain.
Trust me, you'll never cry in vain.

We're the broken kids, from broken homes
And we’ve never felt so alone.
Some roads are tough to walk
And some roads will part.

In a moment, the world is standing still
And some things slip away too fast.
But doubt and regret will trick your broken heart.

Your path is meant for you to walk.
Some things can't be repaired,
Cause nothing lasts forever.
So learn to let go,
Cause life will be getting better.

I can never forget that day,
I'm not the same person as I used to be,
I know you're angry and I know you feel alone,
but trust me, there's love in every home.
Track Name: Black Ocean
I wish I could fly over the world,
see things differently, learn to let go.
I wish I'd be able to understand
how to start and where to end.

So many thoughts, can‘t finish one.
So many dreams, can‘t bring them to an end.
So many distractions, can’t focus on all of them.
So many obstacles, can’t climb the wall

Through all of this, I can’t walk alone.
Without ambition, I can’t be my own ruler.
Don’t leave me behind.
I know it’s a mess, but please be kind.

Someday I'll learn to let go.
Wise and proud of myself,
Realizing that my path works out.
Then I'll understand, and know where to end.

All these attractions are getting closer to me.
Split my soul and drag me down into the deep.
Black ocean, I have nothing to see.
Belief is essential and I know that we will meet.
Track Name: Lessons Unlearned
When my home was burned,
You saved my life and made me one of yours.
You assumed control of my thoughts,
which was comfortable somehow.

You poisoned my wine,
And led me from my path.
You told me, that it’s all for good,
But behind the curtains it was dark.

When my home was burned,
You saved my life and made me one of yours.

And how many times, did I swim in your pond,
Without ever seeing the ground?
You told me how to swing a sword,
But not how to use it fair.

And when the time was right,
You threw me out to the world,
To kill and fight, to judge and decide,
In our god's name.

And how many times, did I swim in your pond,
Without ever seeing the ground?
You told me how to swing a sword,
But not how to use it fair.
Track Name: In Search Of Loneliness
Water and waves,
Carry our reason for love,
Want to capsize our boat,
Take us to remote.

Spring fever awakes in me,
When the sun is shining.
Spring fever awakes in me,
When the birds are warbling.
Spring fever awakes in me,
When the woods are rustling.
Spring fever awakes in me,
When the waves are crushing down.

In search of loneliness,
We strike out, proceed to distant seas.
Cause absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Our love produces fruit.

Ships with holes will sink,
But I'll swim the long way back to shore.
Remember that there’s nothing anymore I'd give my arm or leg for.

In search of loneliness,
We strike out, proceed to distant seas.
Cause absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Our love produces fruit.

Water and waves enter my boat,
You can't see my troubles without hope.
Track Name: Ambition
So in the end you have to realize,
That there is always a way,
That there is always a chance.
Don't give up on your life,
Don't doubt and regret!
Think of the great things you did
And what the future will bring.

In the end
There are still things to do
And many goals to achieve,
but take the time that you need.
It's all about what you want
And not about what they say.
Just love the things that you do
And think positively.

I know, there's still a long way to go,
But every poison makes your heart grow stronger in the end.
The past is a distant veil you can't erase.
Learn to keep your head up high
And make the best of every day.
Cause there’s no light,
if you only see the dark.

Life is not always fair,
But you’ve got the chance to make the best of it.
Every suffered setback lesson is a lesson.
Forgive your past mistakes

I've learned to forget the things that I can’t change.
I've learned to forgive my past mistakes.

I know, there's still a long way to go,
But every poison makes your heart grow stronger in the end.
The past is a distant veil you can't erase.
Learn to keep your head up high
And make the best of every day.
Cause there’s no light,
if you only see the dark.
Track Name: Misconception
And if I showed you the way,
That I feel about the world and myself,
Would you say it's a misconception?

If you looked in my eyes, will you get,
That they mirror a child that is loveless and broken?

And if my words get through to you,
Would you make up the picture of a golden cage?
Would you believe me, that I still think, that life is beautiful?

Will you show a smile of empathy?
Or will this questions remain forever unanswered?

If I told you my story,
Would I be pitied or
Would I even get your attention?
The story of my flashback;
The scenes of a future that will never be real,
The feeling of being unwanted and not fitting in.
Would you reach out your hand to catch me?

And if I showed you the way,
That I feel about the world and myself,
Would you say it's a misconception?

If you looked in my eyes, will you get,
That they mirror a child that is loveless and broken?

And if my words get through to you,
Would you make up the picture of a golden cage?
Would you believe me, that I still think, that life is beautiful?

Will you show a smile of empathy?
Or will this questions remain forever unanswered?

We live in a society that guarantees
The free development of the individual.
Yet there is an unwritten law,
That forces us to go with the flow,
To keep our eyes to the floor,
To buy and swallow their products.

No one should be forced to be something they're not!
No one should hide or numb their emotions!

You don't owe anything to the world,
only to yourself!
