Track Name: Opinion Leader
this feels like walking with my head on backwards
cause now i try to see the other side of everything i am
and there are not enough chords to play
for telling the whole story now

silently everything has changed
so fast i cannot believe it myself

cause we are the cracks in the pavement
i am fear
the fear of myself
what am i to do?
now it's difficult to foward with my head on backwards

now i try to see it all
all the sides of you and all the things
all the things that dissappear
disappear with me

never look back
Track Name: We're Off Air
you seem adrift
out of place
looking for us
what do you wait for?
we cannot find sense for you
now you know they were wrong
shake hands, fake smiles
they don't speak for us
don't believe it all

come here and clean up all this mess you left
don't you know we're off air?

pack up your bags
leave this place
then we'll watch them
walk across water
we have tried, too
find a way out of tv trays
looking for lies?
inside of me there are
none of theirs at all

come here and clean up all this mess you left
don't you know we're off air?
Track Name: This House Is Empty
when you decided you've been locked in here
what did you expect to find in the other room?
these traps that we have built for someone else
are forcing us to be, are forcing us to be aware

this is all i know
there's so much more we haven't yet explored
inside ourselves lies all we seek
it's impossible to turn away the eye

if there's something wrong with everything you said
you should better be, better be ahead of time

it seems to be a waste of time
to concentrate on our desires
so long i've seen them coming towards us

this is all i know
there's so much more we haven't yet explored
inside ourselves lies all we seek
it's impossible to turn away the eye

and you know we'll arrive
the fog will disappear
can't you see it now?
there

this is all i know
there's so much more we haven't yet explored
inside ourselves lies all we seek
it's impossible to turn away the eye
Track Name: Duo Loss
i'm the furthest from the storm
i thought you could tell by the sources you gain from
i thought i might stop by
but you won't tell a thing
our time has come to end
but i'm not here to think
about the time we spent
for another round
i am here to find a glimpse of you

you've been said to carry all the world for them
and i, i know you never tell
what you have lost in them
i shouldn't ask a thing
about you and him
so what am i doing here?
this will end so soon

shouldn't ask a thing
Track Name: Sleepie
maybe you're exposed
to a thing you miss the most
and all you've found is not to stay
but you cannot see

it occurs to me
you can make a door appear
open up and run
cause for now you know the way home

we repeat ourseleves
in the way we hurt
open up and run
maybe you'll find our way home

get us out of here
make this door appear
open up and run
for now you know our way home
Track Name: Nibiru
the circles have been drawn
they already know
amongst us but not here
not ready yet to show
and you may think you know
it's without consequence
and when it comes someday
it all makes sense to you

so save your clever statements for someone else
they will always find its way to open ears

waiting for the dust to settle upon this
the longer we will wait
the shorter the distance
don't you think we know
they seem to never stop to play trinks on us
a splinter in my cup
so may it come today

you save your clever statements for someone else
will it always find its way to open ears?
and you may laugh at us for being strange
for not believing anything
anything

so save your clever statements for someone else
will it always find its way to open ears?
and you may laugh at us for being strange
for not believing anything?
anything.
Track Name: Open
one foot in front of the other
you're moving towards the edge
i'm not too sure if you know what to expect on the other side
since i can remember you wondered
how it would feel like to be there
i hope you're fine over there

maybe we will meet again
Track Name: Gift of Reading Palms
tasting the daylight through holes in the walls
the pictures and frames will only capture a ghost
so inside of this bunker i feel safe from the air
and get rid of the answers that they want me to hear

and we will wait

and how long will i stay here?
i wish i could tell
if it takes this to stay myself
i will do it again

and we will wait for something to happen
and we will wait for something to happen
and we will wait

the noises i'm hearing sound suspicious at times
and whenever they'll find me
i'm prepared to deny
that the pieces of silver that i've found in the sand
were given to someone to read the palm of my hand

and we will wait for something to happen
and we are scared of something to happen
and we will wait

and we will wait for something to happen
and we are scared of something to happen
and we will wait
wait
Track Name: Method: Acting
who tapped the phone?
inside of this we walk alone
and this may be not the end you wished for yourself

you're lifted up and never came back down
you're never here you never make a sound
in here at all

so false in your speech
start practicing now what you preached
before we find out we'll get enough of all we reached

and for some time i wondered why you came
to break them up before they'd start again
we came here to reach out for something else
that came instead

we came here to reach out for something new
to burst in time, we never wondered why
you came here to embrace something else
you've found instead
Track Name: Backdoors/Trapdoors
once we've been told that all that's left is gone
we fell down the stairs and all we found was us
and for some time you're hanging on
the days gone by get swallowed in mistakes
please don't give in

we beg for a sign to make a door appear
we are stuck inbetween these trapdoors to ourselves
and once again they're clinging to the days gone by
got eaten up? they will come for us again
again

and i will know.
