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
2.
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?
3.
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

Duo Loss 04:04
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

Sleepie 04:02
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

Nibiru 04:29
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.

Open 04:46
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
8.
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
9.
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
10.
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.
