Track Name: Cursed
Another chapter, another verse
Another day, still stuck with the same curse
Track Name: Run
Always! Always!
One hundred per cent
I’d say I’d rather die than live a life asking myself “What if?”
Always! Always!
One hundred per cent
Never holding back, I won’t go down without a fight

I’ll find my way across burned down bridges – Over crumbled roads
I’ll keep searching for a path that leads me to a light
No maps – No guidance; Ignore all warning signs
I keep searching for a path that leads me away from here

Straight forward – Mind set to succeed
Mind set on the destination, fuelled up by dedication
Straight forward – Mind set to succeed
Mind set on the destination, I won’t stop for anyone

Run or get ran over
Pick up the pieces, put yourself back together
Track Name: Set Free
I need a moment to re-stabilize
There is no slowing down; I must keep up with the pace
I keep on running and running; I keep on struggling and struggling
- To get ahead of this race
Every time I take a moment to breathe
I face the risk of losing, as I’m losing speed
I suffocate on my way taking the lead
I need to survive, but I must also succeed

I feel the hammer – slamming down on my spine

I feel the hammer slamming down on my spine
I need to focus, cause I keep losing time
I keep on smiling, pretending everything is fine
I keep on running for the truth to shine – through

I’m done with the losers giving up on their dreams
Fuck – Your disapproval, cause I’m still here
I said:
I’m done with the losers giving up on their dreams
Keep shaking your head, but where will you turn when…

…Reality kicks in, stomping your face on the floor,
Cause every fucking time you find yourself kicking open doors

How many times do you think I’ve heard…

Wake up! (Wake up!) Wake up!
This is going nowhere
Wake up! (Wake up!) Wake up!
But now I’m telling you,
Wake up! (Wake up!) Wake up!
Cause We’re going nowhere
Wake up! (Wake up!) Wake up!
This who I chose to be

And I will never be a victim of my own behaviour
I design my fate; I decide my destiny
I refuse to be pressed down
I choose to stand above myself
I choose to bear the consequences
This is my choice – Set free
Track Name: Sink / Swim
I've been through this shit before
Now I am back at nothing
I figured that I found a cure
But this time everything seems worse
So hopeless, so clueless
I can not see the point of this
For a life without a fucking meaning
I'm lost in the dark again

Sails set
All hands aboard
Straight ahead into the storm
It's time to settle the score
Sails set, all hands aboard
Straight ahead into the storm
Full capacity, no remorse
I can't go back to the shore

Yeah, I've said it,
Here you have it
What do you want me to do now?
You expect me to suck it up,
but I'm so fucking through with this

Fuck it

Sails set
All hands aboard
Straight ahead into the storm
It's time to settle the score
Sails set, all hands aboard
Straight ahead into the storm
Full capacity, no remorse
I can't go back to the shore

This anchor locked to my feet keeps pulling me down
I know it's sink or swim, but I feel like I'm bound to drown
Giving up was never so tempting, but still I won't give in
I know it's sink or swim, so I fucking swim
Track Name: Part I: The Grey
It feels like forever that I’ve been hiding
In this shaded room where no one can find me
Aligning everything that drove me down here
Trying to find a sense for what’s left of this life
The clock keeps ticking away
Got nothing left to prove
The days are passing by
Got nothing left to lose
I’m seeking comfort in the silent misery
Tracking down the lines on how I misconceive
I can’t find closure in this make-believe
Fuck this life, I’m fucking tired of being me
Track Name: Part II: Revive
It feels like forever
That I’ve been locked down
In this shaded room
In the back of my mind
And I look at myself
As if I look into this strangers’ eyes;
I see a veil of lies – wound up inside
As I face the mirror
I face my cracked reflection
‘Need to destroy my darker side
And revive the brighter me

Trembling hands – buckling knees
My body’s turning down on me
‘Losing focus, but I still know what brought me here:
I refuse to give in to defeat

I face the mirror – I’m here to conquer
I won’t neglect what’s left of me
I face my demons – Raising from the depths
I refuse to give in to defeat
Track Name: Bloom
Lately I don’t feel like myself
I get rid of the days like I’m someone else
I lost my face; I lost my ways;
For all I know I’m stuck in this maze
I am my own single fucking threat
I am my own, but I’m losing control

For all I know I’m stuck in this maze
With my thoughts caught in a dead loop:
Where do I go? What do I do? – There are no answers
I guess I’ll stay here just a little longer
Cause I’m afraid of what I’ll find behind the next door

I try and try; I fall and fall
But I’m getting tired of getting back up again
I try and try; I fall and fall
But I’m getting tired of getting back up again

Another chapter, another verse
Another day, still stuck with the same curse
Isolated inside the grey
With all the horrors I keep within me
Nothing has changed really
‘Guess that I’m finally aware I’m still the only one who’s standing in my way

So here I am, writing this letter to yours truly – a death note to my former self:
“We got a long way, but it’s time to cut the rope.
This isn’t working out, I’m better off alone.
Don’t grieve, it’s for the better.
No kind regards, I’m fucking done with you.”

Shelter ‘me’ six feet deep
So I can be the person I need to be
From ashes new life grows
So burn me down for the world to bloom
