Track Name: Fall Apart
To fall
from the world
is not an easy
process

gravity is about
to refuse you
to flee
from your unrest

But if you look up
to the stars
what do you see?
and if you look
down to your scars
how do you feel?

To emerge
from the bottom
of the
sea

To dive through
the darkness
and breathe in
the breeze

You know
there is an ocean
of mistakes
that wait for you

You know
there is an ocean
that life
will pull you through

Diving through
doubts and dephts
searching your
signs


Theres been writings
on the walls
But I just can't grasp
your words

Every mistake
ever made
tryin' to tarnish
my world

All the memories
of you
tryin' to tear
me apart

tryin' to accomplish
a collapse
and take me back
to the start


Don't you see
were running
out of
oxygen

pressures pushing
me down
to my
lower self

I've tried to stay
below the surface
to drown in
all my sins

I've tried to stay
below the surface
'cause you were there
ever since

You never learned
that I am
an Island
on my own

attracting
you with land
than letting
you drown

Afloat among
the ocean
Aware of mistakes
unforgiven

Alone among
the ocean
All the creatures
my decision

Diving through
doubts and dephts
searching yoursigns

Theres been writings
on the walls
But I just can't grasp
your words

Every mistake
ever made
tryin' to tarnish
my world

All the memories
of you
tryin' to tear
me apart

tryin' to accomplish
a collapse
and take me back
to the start

When I had
to face the fact
that the loss
of your grace
was my own fault

And now
I picture myself
in the Mirror

wondering
if I ever
can forgive me

Let your soul
stand cool and composed
before a million universes
Track Name: In Memories
I am your
rising sunlight
your long awoken
childish dream

Morphing to the
darkest nightmares
you well deem

I will not let
you bring me
down to the ground
never again

Your just a shadow
of wrongdoings
wrapping around my head
present till today

Guess there's a
past scene
that's following me

Guess there's a
memory
That won't let me free

You make me
illuminate
Everything
long forgotten

Your perseverance
pushing me
to perceptions
lonesome rotten

Part of me
is apart from me
A rising
loss of sanity

I will not let
you bring me
down to the ground
never again

Your just a shadow
of wrongdoings
wrapping around my head
present till today

Guess there's a
past scene
that's following me

Guess there's a
memory
That won't let me free

I'll be the noise
in your head
that never
fades away
Track Name: As Colours Faded
This is what
I've found
A world
without you

Follow me
around
I'll show you
empty rooms

Enjoy the
emptiness
it's all I've left
to grasp

The world
without you
means thats
nothing left
of me

Let me paint
a portrait
Of promises
and lies
Using just
the colours
of our
different skies
But as
colours faded
Our black
canvas decays
So did the
perspective
'till brightness
blurred away

Let me paint
a portrait
But brightness
blurred away
Let me paint
a portrait
But deafness
cursed our way

I can't tell myself
to let go

I can't tell myself
to let go

On that day
That's nothing
You walked away
That's nothing
that was the day
That's nothing
when there was nothing
That's nothing
nothing left of me
left of me
Track Name: Left Alone
Slowly truth
is coming
out of mind

Just as
you are
I was blind

I never
needed
another friend
who just calls

for his good
conscience

Hide his lies
living to pretend
my broken heart
lost in silence

I will never
see your true face

And in their castles
we build our homes
uncertianty built
in stone
But we will resist
But we will resist
to choose their path

I now can see
that you are just
as I am not free

But still
you were
supposed to
carry me

And when
I fell
you blamed it
all on me

Hide his lies
living to pretend
my broken heart
lost in silence

I will never
see your true face

And in their castles
we build our homes
uncertianty built
in stone
But we will resist
But we will resist
to choose their path

And I have said
the soul
Is not more than
the body
And I have said
the body
Is not more than
the soul

And whoever
walks a furlong
without sympathy
walks to his own
funeral
drest in his
shroud
Track Name: In a Place that was never meant for me
Dear unknown
old friend
you know it's
been a while
since I understood
why I stopped
writing to you
All the reasons
have been
between the lines
hiding beneath
phrases of the
path that we
had been walking
But for me
we've never walked it
to the end
don't get me wrong
I know that
I'm the one
who stayed

In a place
that was never
meant for me
that was never
meant for me
To stay

I had a reason
to carry on
But as the last
bonfire faded
leaving behind
an empty chest
Morphing to
black materia
I became a
black hole
absorbing
only the worst
of me
making me my
greatest enemy
only one aim
was left
to set me free
well at least
I thought so
but I remembered
your voice
whispering
in my ear
telling me to wait
only one more decade
As I stood confused
at the cliffs edge
I swear I could
feel your soul
hugging me
But you were
so far away
It's as if you
could still feel me
down under
and a hundred
years apart
from each other

So I well understood
And took a step back
so I well understood
and took a step back

From a place that was
never meant for me
From a place that
belongs to you

You still linger
I'm telling you
my dear friend
in every
It's never
single chord I play
Your melody
In unison to me
to me

Dear unknown old friend
you know it's been a while
since I understood
why I stopped writing to you
