    C.A.L.M.

    for all that it's worth,
    for all that it's worth to me

    it was like a curse,
    it was like a curse to me

    time will fly
    over night
    you will find a place
    to hide

    for all that it's worth,
    for all that it's worth to me

    it was like a curse,
    it was like a curse to me

    time will fly
    over night
    you will find a place
    to hide

    for now what's it worth?
    for now what's it worth to me?
    to be killing time,
    it's a crazy mystery

    Medea

    I've seen the ships departing,
    out in the open blue
    there's something you keep hiding,
    and I have no clue

    and the lies on the horizon,
    were all part of your default
    the leaves have all been wizened,
    once were colourful

    you left your stolen heart,
    into that frozen ground
    you left your stolen heart,
    into that frozen ground

    and your daddy keeps on calling,
    but I just don't know what to do
    you rather have us starving,
    Medea's waiting for you

    you left your stolen heart,
    into that frozen ground
    you left your stolen heart,
    into that frozen ground

    I was silently fishing,
    outside my home
    and if I only got some ammunition,
    I would shoot nobody but my own,
    children, why are you crying, why are you crying,
    and what are you waiting for?
    well I've seen the ships departing now,
    through the open door

    The River

    hideaway, and never look back
    don't mind to stay, I've seen this wall crack
    don't worry about the promises your love was always pure and true
    there's no one waiting, it's only me who's dreaming out there in queue

    take me home, take me home, take me home before you're gone
    you know it all, you know it all, you know that you have seen it before

    I never wandered where the river flows
    but it reminds me that it always grows
    I never wandered where, wandered where, wandered where, the river flows

    take me home, take me home, take me home before you're gone
    you know it all, you know it all, you know that you have seen it before

    hideaway, I know that you're gone
    don't mind to stay, the lines have been drawn

    take me home, take me home, take me home before you're gone
    you know it all, you know it all, you know that you have seen it before

    Hold On

    fleeing from your own far country
    to leave all your things behind
    where you go it is a mystery
    concern is all that comes to mind

    now put your head upon my shoulder
    it was only for the best
    apart from that you shouldn't bother
    and the rest should take a rest

    hold on, all love seems gone
    but, we might be wrong

    if there ever was a plan to reassure you that all hope comes back
    then I'd put it in a box for you and try to make you understand
    hold on, all love seems gone
    hold on, we might be wrong

    I will overcome
    what once is said and done
    you will overcome
    we will overcome
    what once is said and done
    we will overcome

    if there ever was a plan to reassure you that all hope comes back
    then I'd put it in a box for you and try to make you understand
    hold on, all love seems gone
    hold on, we might be wrong

    Why?

    why did you ever stop me?
    I was on fire, but my heart was stumbling
    and now my mind is doubtful
    there's something in the water, and I don't know what

    I can't always seem to work it out
    my eyes are bleeding now

    why, is this really happening?
    I want to start over, because there's something missing
    still all, that kept me blind is
    pushing me to close my eyes

    I can't always seem to work it out
    my eyes are bleeding now

    now, my eyes are on fire
    my loss, my loss, my loss
    now, we will be deviding
    my loss, my loss, my loss

    Sleepless Nights

    my drying eyes looked at the fire
    to find something they'd admire
    and now I seem to realize
    your stories lie in these skies

    and I, keep on falling down

    so many sleepless nights
    to find these howling lights
    it all just seems to fly
    in the darkness of the night

    and since I've walked the wolves at night
    my cold feet seem to pass me by
    and now I seem to realize
    I was looking at your haunting eyes

    and I, keep on falling down

    so many sleepless nights
    to find these howling lights
    it all just seems to fly
    in the darkness of the night

    and I, keep on falling down

    sun, rises over

    Woodfalls in the ocean
    brings time into life

    cause I'll keep following myself down
    in search of graceful ground

    who will find me after dark
    to give shelter?

    now we are elsewhere
    let's sink the open sea

    cause I'll keep following myself down
    in search of graceful ground

    who will find me after dark
    to give shelter?

    I keep trying, but I won't let her go
    she's in my mind still, and I'm alone
    and I, I can't get lost

    who will find me after dark
    to give shelter?

    Into Pieces

    I went down into the valley of this lonesome town
    all my problems fell into pieces when I saw that smile

    the treasure
    oh, mercy

    I went down into the valley of this lonesome town
    all my problems fell into pieces when I saw that smile

    we laughed we cried we stayed together and so the story ends

    History

    independence for a while
    only for a while before you realise
    the more unpredictable
    the more excitement

    except the sight of your apartment walls
    and the bottom of your glass
    all that's loose closes it's eyes for
    surprises

    history didn't go the way it didn't go
    no surprises make time fly and
    although time's a man's invention
    it wouldn't make life any longer
    if it was timeless

    history didn't go the way it didn't go

    Citadel

    a toxic side of you rang the bell
    to confront space with time, who will tell

    how we keep trying to spend the days
    while we keep mining in decay?

    I'm lost, I'm found, but you won't get lost inside of me
    I'm striving, for higher grounds
    I'm lost, I'm found, but you won't get lost inside of me
    I promise, it's over now
    it's over now, I promise, it's over now

    for a moment lost in truth, by solitude
    a body falls apart, despite its youth

    all that's coming, will be heard
    makes you starving, but becomes blurred

    I'm lost, I'm found, but you won't get lost inside of me
    I'm striving, for higher grounds
    I'm lost, I'm found, but you won't get lost inside of me
    I promise, it's over now

    if there only was a place where all of this would never even happen to us
    an odyssey, is rolling over me, but I'll keep pushing for it
    and I'll keep striving, to comply if it even matters
    I'll keep striving, for higher grounds, for higher grounds

    I'm lost, I'm found, but you won't get lost inside of me
    I promise, it's over now
    I'm lost, I'm found, but you won't get lost inside of me
    I'm striving, for higher grounds
    for higher grounds, for higher grounds

    Your Irrationality is my Best Defense

    if I ever was in your sacred house
    would I understand what it's all about?
    because now it seems that the tragedies
    are surely not meant to be

    why don't we feel shameful from time to time?
    why don't we feel sorry for our enemies?

    because seemingly the relics give you higher hopes
    but weren't they disapproved long ago?
    oh I can't see how a higher love
    can save you from your hen-hearted faults

    why don't we feel shameful from time to time
    why don't we feel sorry for our enemies

    I called out your name, who's to blame
    is it me?
    I called out your name, who's to blame
    is it me? is it you? who can say?
    in this religious outrage

    if I were to tell how this could stop
    I'd ask you to not believe it all

    Glowing Eyes

    pulling things out of perspective
    into new glowing eyes

    now seems most effective
    to keep me agitated and dry

    if once I could pass time by
    if once you would have luck by your side

    feeling struggles when you are sleeping
    with these new glowing eyes

    keeps me silent and drowns me into
    what now is a beautiful sight

    if once I could pass time by
    if once you would have luck by your side

    colors surrounding you
    I was astonished by your prism
    I just felt what I had to do
    cause from that moment I knew
    I wanted to drift away with you
    we are drifting

    sail with me
    take me wherever you go
    guide me through when the waves start to grow
    shelter me when the weather gets to cold
    and in the eye of the storm
    be there as we float

    the distraction fell apart
    only the right way remained
    and since we are on this path
    we are bound to stay
    so step onto my boat
    and let me leave with you
    we are leaving

    All This Time

    where do the birds sleep when they fly overnight
    no wings to keep them in air
    is my perception based on sight
    or are they really not there

    without you

    all this time I've been running for you
    it's a weary sight but
    this is what it comes to
    all this time I've been running for you
    and now I'm blind

    in my own paradigm it seems that waves
    will never return to place
    floating into dried out caves
    finishing their endless race

    without you

    all this time I've been running for you
    it's a weary sight but
    this is what it comes to
    all this time I've been running for you
    and now I'm blind

    how come?
    what now is lost,
    once was won
