Track Name: Reality
I miss the walks we shared in sunny art weekends
And wasting some more time in rainy day cafes
And I am grateful for even the silences we shared
It’s such a shame my soul was lost in some old fairytale

Now I’m awake
If there’s still time
For the love of love
I won’t let go

She’s just a song that I sang
You’re whom I want and really need
A haunting voice in my head
You’re the vision that I can truly see
She’s just a song that I sang
With you the more I can achieve
A haunting voice in my head
Your singing could bring more warmth to me

It was you
It was you
That did end
My curse of make-believe

Love is really strange Cause your touch still felt bigger than any kisses that I've ever felt
That is truth, And I really did loved you, and I thought you did too, I hope you didn’t lie to me
I understand if it’s not meant to be, but do hang with me,
Cause I don’t wanna grieve over you, as much as I grieved over her
And the bands are still playing, and the painters’ still painting
I need to bask in their glory with you

Now I’m awake
If there’s still time
For the love of love
I won’t let go

She’s just a song that I sang
You’re whom I want and really need
A haunting voice in my head
You’re the vision that I can truly see
She’s just a song that I sang
from a blank space in my memory
A haunting voice in my head
Your singing could bring more life to me

Cause of you
Cause of you
I did breathe
And felt reality

She’s just a song that I sang
A haunting voice in my head
Track Name: Addiction
I be walking down the street and I want some of that shit
Some of that shit, give it all to me
I be walking down the street and I want some of that shit
Some of that shit, give it all to me

I wanna drink til I die and then I’m born again
Til I die and then I’m born again
I wanna drink til I die and then I’m born again
Til I die and then I’m born again

What is it you gonna do?
When the devil’s into you
Suck out your soul out of the blue
Put his addiction onto you
onto you

I be walking down the street and I see someone itchy
And I see someone dirty and I’m glad that isn’t me
I be chillin by the river and I gaze at the reflection
It gave me a strange reaction like it doesn’t know who’s me

I wanna drink til I die and then I’m born again
And then I’m born again
I wanna drink til I die and then I’m born again
And then I’m born again

What is it you gonna do?
When the angels ignore you
Forsake your soul out of the blue
Let your addiction enslave you

I feel so desperate and cold, so desperate and cold,
That’s why I want some of that shit just to keep me warm
Just to keep me warm
Just to keep me warm
Just to keep me warm

I wanna drink til I die and then I’m born again
Til I die and then I’m born again
I wanna drink til I die and then I’m born again
Til I die, til I die, til I die
And then I’m born again
So I can drink again
Track Name: Misery
How come there’s still so much to see?
On this bed of misery
Where I lay and choose to be blinded from
All my responsibilities

Just bottles and all these desperate songs
And a mind of selfish ease
The world is spinning fast outside my window
Why can’t I have the fate to leave?

Goddamn this whole thing
I can’t believe what I did to me
I’m not, I’m not me
My whole being’s burning down and the fire is spreading all across my dreams
I’m not who I wanted to be

And in this chair of malady
It’s a tripe melancholy
This staring on the people passing by
Cries for more pretentious poetry

But I can still see that bright-lit tree
Shining deep in me
But how am I supposed to grow it out
If the roots don’t want it to be free

Goddamn this whole thing
I can’t believe what I did to me
I’m not, I’m not me
My whole being’s burning down and the fire is boiling up my childlike dignity
I’m not who I wanted to be

Goddamn everything
I can’t believe this is happening
I can’t let it be
My whole being have burnt down and from the ashes spawned an endless stretch of that same old misery
It’s not how I thought it would be

It keeps happening
It keeps happening
On and on I wonder why
It keeps happening

Can I blame the sun?
Can I blame the moon?
Can I blame the stars?
No we can’t blame anything
Track Name: Time
Well aren’t you the weird one
Or is it me
The facts are blurred in your frown
But I can see that it’s all in your mind
It’s all in your mind
It’s all in your ability to wonder why
And imagine it’s not fine
(it’s all in your mind
I just want you to know
that I want everything to go back to how they were)
It’s all in your mind
Your beautiful mind

If it’s the old me you’re after
I swear I’m still fine
And if it’s my words you fear of
Baby I tell you this: it’s all in your mind
Or is it in mine
Is it my inability to realise
That there was nothing there all this time
(or is it in mine
I just want you to know
that I want everything to go back to how they were)
Is it all in my mind

That I am bound
To who you were and things you said
And this version of you in me won’t go away
It’s there to stay

In the depths of my mind
Oh I hope you don’t mind
That I’m convinced our love will find its way in time

Right on time

In whichever space it chooses to
In whatever form it takes
But all in time

In our minds
Holding on
It spins on
