Track Name: Venice
yes, it was strange that it lasted
I felt so numb in the past days
watching the walls come down just like paper planes

don't touch me like nothing happened

we dressed up, left what we had there
but were so small in the picture
watching the roof come down like the messiah

on and on and on
Track Name: Don't
take what you want to take
yes, take everything you need

in some time, you’ll see
it will be fine

and keep what I couldn’t keep
love that’s beyond need

you’ll see, for a while
it will be fine

don’t throw it all away
don’t throw it all away
all the little parts that form a distant past
all the little rhymes that form a distant time
Track Name: Low
as you knock on the door
with your head like before

as you lie on the floor
like a lover, like before

kiss the concrete
hear its melody
you know this is safe here

but when you say things
when you talk
it’s like shaking
broken clocks

hear the silence
feel its remedy
you know this is severe

when there are always eyes around you
can you feel it crawling up your back

and when all these lights shine on you
I can see that sparkle in your eye

kiss the concrete
hear its melody
you know this is safe here
Track Name: Take on
right since this morning
I’m out of luck and everything you said weighs on
I stumble all alone silently along
like an old and endless song

take a bite of what I just found

right since this morning
I’m tired and lost, everything is done
I stumble all alone silently along
like an old and endless song

take on
take on enemies
as if you know who they are
take on
take ´em on
and on we run
along

take on enemies
as if you know who they are
take on
take ´em on and on
we lost them all
Track Name: Something's broken
something’s broken
I can’t remember why
words unspoken
pile up to the sky

this is an invitation
blown the right way
but it’s missing the name

something’s broken
look what we got ourselves into
what we wanted
and everything that we’ve been through

oh, this silent sensation
I can’t help myself
it is always the same
Track Name: Silesia
row me slowly
row me up to the moon
you’ll never guess
who I saw up there
in those silent nights
smiling

I’ve been thinking for so long
about these eyes

all these other ones
that tried to row across

I’ve been here before
I walked through this door
Track Name: Maria
unseen, you got away
you wore a different mask each day
finally, you shake it off
you stop to take it as a contract

mind your step in the shadow
all the traps we have thought out so carefully

unseen, you got away
you wore a different mask each day
finally, you shake it off
you stop to take it as a contract

mind your step in the shadow
all the traps, that we set up so carefully
Track Name: This Is How It Started
this is how it started
everything that you wanted

in every bed we’ll hide someone
you won’t get what you came here for
and you know
this is how it goes

yes, in every bed you will find someone
can you hear the knock on your front door
you know this
this is what you called

place your hand on my heart
don’t you wonder
just how boring our fears have become
still we keep on hanging on
Track Name: Styrofoam
this feels like being snapped on the run
unable to stop, unable to go on

I’m trapped inside a photograph
continuously examined, I can’t get my hands up

it’s a part that I play in your love
just like a bad actor while all the others laugh

sometimes I’m made of styrofoam
that someone painted on
while you scratch on and on
till all the colors are gone
Track Name: Come Fear You Not
Come; fear you not: good counsellors lack no clients:
though you change your place,
you need not change your trade;
I'll be your tapster still.

Courage! there will be pity taken on you:
you that have worn your eyes almost out in the service,
you will be considered.
Track Name: Careful What You Wish For
my tired eyes are longing for the curtain
to fall upon the things that all went wrong

well, it all comes back
when you least expect it

I recall walking over bridges
every night, I never thought they’d fall

it is such a shame
and you can’t explain it

you should be careful what you wish for
