Track Name: Stain
So you are back
Back in my dreams
Suddenly taken back to that time, just nineteen
We were young, we were naive, we were sure that we're one and the same
Separated in space, united in mind, withered through time
So in that dream
Though I cry from your words
Your face, your voice, your presence is worth all that ache
I'm awake
And again
I'm all over you
Sometimes I wonder if our ability to love is our biggest stain
I drown myself in you
Our biggest stain
I think I don't want to see that nothing changed
What's the point of human dreams? Twisted memories? Foreshadowings or just desperate
outcries of our souls?
But souls never change
No, souls never change
You're still my soul mate
My soul mate
Track Name: Set Sail
Everything we had is falling apart
Everything that was yet to come, will never be
I guess the sands run out, run out through my hands
Slipping away
My belief in us is crushed
My will fades out, fades out like our lines in the sand
I will use the remains of the past to build a vessel
A vessel that carries me far from here
I can't believe what you did to me
I can't believe what you fucking did to me
Submissively you dissemble your love to me
While I dump your rotten scent at the pier
There's no
way you could ever make up
for this nasty shit
you put me through
I'm trying to dump the thoughts of you
The pictures in my mind drive salt into the wound
Sure wounds can heal, but scars remain till the end
You know I cannot forgive
I know you won't change
I know you won't change
The time has come for me to start anew
My time has finally come
I will set these sails and I will leave this barren land
without you
I set these sails and I'm off to new shores
I set these sails, I chose to leave all of this behind
to start anew
I have tailwinds and I leave every bit of you behind
Anchors aweigh
And I'm off to new hopes
Track Name: Haven
Let's go!
Life weighs anchors and makes you run aground
Can you be sure to be offered a helping hand?
Always keep in mind
No tree bears fruit without the sun and water
I've got my friends in my heart
And my heart on the sleeve
I've got my friends in my heart
And I wear my heart on the sleeve
This is my haven
You're the lighthouse showing me my way back home
You are , you are my haven
The gravity bringing me back down to earth
I'm deeply grateful to have a harbour to return to when the sea of life gets too rough
Together, we raise the flag of blue
The flag of blue
Let the storm roar harder
Together we keep our heads above water
Let the skies shake on and on
no matter how hard, we weather the storm
Go!
This is my haven
You're the lighthouse showing me my way back home
You are , you are my haven
The gravity bringing me back down to earth
Together we raise the flag of blue and leave our course to the waves of life
Together we fight failures, heartbreaks and mistakes
Track Name: Tomorrow
Tomorrow is another day they say
Aren't you tired of the empty promises you make to yourself?
Empty promises but full of pure gold
Picturing pompous palaces
You miss the most important thing
All the colouring wont stop your dreams from expiring because
The only thing that never waits is your time
Tick Tick
The only thing that never waits is your time
I want, I will, I'm gonna...nothing but dead words
This is what separates the doers from the sayers
Putting words into action
You are what you do
Tomorrow is another day they say
Aren't you tired of the empty promises you make to yourself?
Empty promises but full of pure gold
When will you start breathing life into your dreams?
Bubbles are bound to pop sooner or later
This is what separates the doers from the sayers
Putting verbs into action
You are what you do and not what you say
You are what you do
Do as you say
Track Name: Outro
I'm a dead tree
Bring me to life
Drained all the resin
Withered and hollow
Bring here rain
God, bring here rain
Bring here rain
