Track Name: Devil's Plague
LYRICS

I am the reason you're deprived
Responsibilities in life
I am the promise and I’m the lie
Don’t question why

-chorus-
I am your heartache
I'll make your freedom break
I am your broken soul and devil's plague

You come to me you’re voice is faint
You cling to every word I say
Watch out cause I will ruin your life
No question why

-chorus-
I am your heartache
I'll make your freedom break
I am your broken soul and devil's plague!
Track Name: Lost
LYRICS

I've seen your face before
It makes me realize
That I'm at home
I don’t know who it is you idolize

Maybe its time to ask
If we can meet again
So you can tell this man
Now who it is you seemed to know so well

-chorus-
You will never pass by
You'll be the one that I will wait for
Reclaim the memories you've lost
'Cause now is all that you remember.

You glance at me as if
You cannot recognize
The one that cared for you
And told them all in time you'd agonize

But now its gone too far
You've lost all sense of time
I look at you
and I try to catch a glimpse of what was fine

-chorus-
You will never pass by
You'll be the one that I will wait for
Reclaim the memories you've lost
'Cause now is all that you remember.
Track Name: Thanks To You
LYRICS

Thanks to those who hate
You have made me stronger today
I am not afraid and alone anymore
Thanks to those who left
You showed me nothing lasts forever
Eternity will come and make me high

-chorus-
Crying in cradles of hope
Identity has found its form
Crawling around and roaming through limbo
Oh I feel fine
I can't believe you're mine

Thanks to those who stayed
You showed me what it means to die hard
Never give up and go my own way
Thanks to those who've kept
Their promises in depth and redeemed
Because of you I stand my ground now

-chorus-
Crying in cradles of hope
Identity has found its form
Crawling around and roaming through limbo
Oh I feel fine
I can't believe you're mine

There's something in the way
Of you and me so stay
Track Name: Troubled Water
LYRICS

It used to be good old times, we never lost the way
You could trust the signs to lead you to the exit
Build to be tossed against lightening in the storm
I can feel your heart with me in days of sorrow

-chorus-
Hold on, you and me together
We are so strong

Nine to five rules your life you got nothing left to say
We all dive for gold in thick and troubled water
Free your mind, don’t be blind, there is nothing in our way
There’s a goal to every battle we encounter.

-chorus-
Hold on, you and me together
We are so strong

You and me we are the world!
Track Name: Wasted
LYRICS

I’m feeling alive
I’m taking my time
They’re buying my lies and my jokes and I am high
I kind of lost myself again
which is no surprise
I always need something more
I’m wondering why I can’t stop (say no)

-chorus-
Can't be wasted

There’s candles on cake
with clown's on parade
the children don’t mind when I drink unrefined
I’m doing my best to not stand out
Which is no surprise
I always need something more
I’m wondering why I can’t stop (say no)

-chorus-
Can't be wasted
