Track Name: Air
my wings are clipped. i cannot fly. i'm lost in trust, a crust of dye. upon the surface of my heart that rusts alive. unreal the fog that clouds my eye. my vision blurred by vicious lies. my edge-pins in a world of fiction shrink to size. the ground's not sound. it starts to slide. the hope once found is laid aside. i'm not at all prepared for the coming cold of night. can't lift my thoughts to conquer time. can't put up with the rising tide. the world still turns. those words still burn against my pride. how would it be if i'd believe? could i make my way to greet the sea? how would i take it to be free? if i bent the bars, tore down the seal? what if i got myself some air to breathe? a cooler wind inside my mind. peculiar thoughts with rules denied. the seed is cast. i read the past. i'm changing sides.
Track Name: Smile
smile for me. like a star falling down on my knees. the smile that i see. your smile is given from heaven to me. i try to keep my mind in me. it's fading. my mind is going free. i've gone blind. 'cause it's already fading away. always. my little star please light up my way. until the night is gone for the new coming day. then i know you're with me. feeling your heat. and you're closer to me with every heartbeat.
Track Name: Tired Of
it seems to me you wanna be. alone and free. all the time that's passing by. you feel the pain but you don't cry. it seems to me you're trying to hide. from all those thoughts you bear inside. there's not a moment you don't shake. from decisions soon to take. you say nothing but i know. you're thinking about the time to go. when you're awake you wish to be asleep. nobody sees that you are in need. you say nothing but i see. you're tired of all. even of me. in aimless search of something not real. can't understand you. but i wanna feel it too.
Track Name: Exposure
i can't blame you for your fears. but i can blame myself for mine. i don't know why. i don't know what to do. and if i couldn't dry your tears. would it be a risk worthwhile? at a loss tonight. i'm close tonight to gloom. i have tried to hide my thoughts. but i can't hide them all the time. open eyes would see the strife within. and with prospects cut too short. can i dare to break the ice? can't decide. i've changed my mind again. can't trace back the reasons now. all i saw was that all seemed fine. i closed my eyes. i closed my mind to you. and with chances running out. can we find the guiding sign? we fall behind. let's hope the time's not through. can't take back what i have said. but i can pray my words don't kill. hoping still. affection will not fade.
Track Name: Can't Remember
i can't remember. where is my mind? i can't remember. where is my life? is it all just for nothing? i can't see no signs. have we forgotten to read between the lines? i can't believe what we've become. i thought i'd find you. now you're gone. i can't remember if it's true. have i always been waiting for you? is it all just for nothing? have we lost our line? have we forgotten how to leave the past behind? i can't remember if you told me lies. and i can't remember if we were ever happy sometimes.
Track Name: In Concern
been holding my tongue for so long. giving way each time you're not that strong. constantly cautious where we are. for fear we walk a single step too far. left out once again. i strain to wish away those things you can't explain. do you know how testing patience grows? 'whatever you demand' can wear me out. not long till i run out of wit. dig for solutions while i bite my lips. not really sure if i can keep the dam to hold it back when i feel weak. and even if it's hard for you. and even if you don't know how. could you please try to keep me in mind? and only for a single time. and only for a little while. could you try to see things through my eyes?
Track Name: Don't Be Afraid
no need to blame. no need to hate. no need to be afraid. it seems so clear. don't disappear. don't be afraid. there will be someone who helps you in fear. a helpful word. a shining light. helps to keep a sense of life in your mind.
Track Name: The Blinding One
forgot tonight to spot the light. and fought no fight. too wrong. too right. tonight a song. not right. not wrong. been blind too long. alive but numb. try to cry out loud this time. try to figure out what's wrong inside. combine. consume. confine the moon. in time. so soon. so fine a clue. define the sun. the blinding one. behind what's done the light will come.
Track Name: For You
now i only can say that i miss you today. missing all of you. and from all of my dreams. only one of all seems to be important for me. where have you been? all the times i was in need for you? i can't explain. no doubt will remain. i only wanna say: won't you come with me?. i wrote this for you. hope you like it too. i really do. and from all of my dreams. only one of all seems to be important for me. and you should know that i won't let you go.
Track Name: Tired Of [piano version]
it seems to me you wanna be. alone and free. all the time that's passing by. you feel the pain but you don't cry. it seems to me you're trying to hide. from all those thoughts you bear inside. there's not a moment you don't shake. from decisions soon to take. you say nothing but i know. you're thinking about the time to go. when you're awake you wish to be asleep. nobody sees that you are in need. you say nothing but i see. you're tired of all. even of me. in aimless search of something not real. can't understand you. but i wanna feel it too.
Track Name: The Blinding One [janFM remix]
forgot tonight to spot the light. and fought no fight. too wrong. too right. tonight a song. not right. not wrong. been blind too long. alive but numb. try to cry out loud this time. try to figure out what's wrong inside. combine. consume. confine the moon. in time. so soon. so fine a clue. define the sun. the blinding one. behind what's done the light will come.
