Track Name: Shiver
we‘ve had enough of this
we should all know better
I do relive every single bit
and it makes me shiver
Track Name: We've Seen It All
we’ve seen it all
sitting in our sheltered homes
we are so aware
but do we even care?

I’m seized with remorse
all day long
trying to comprehend
what might have gone wrong
'it’s not our business, it’s not our fault'
challenge your point of view
that’s all I’m asking for

what have we become?
thinking of nothing but ourselves
is it our nature? is it in our veins?
instead of lending a hand
we only look away

selflessness is a rare virtue these days

think about everyday’s misery
all these people suffering
oh can’t you hear them scream?
it’s not that far away, you know
just take a walk right down the street

I would give everything just to see them smile one single time

we’ve seen it all
we are aware
but do we even care?

and when I read the papers or turn on the TV
I find it hard to realize what I see
all these senseless deaths
caused by senseless reasons
hadn’t we enough of it?
will it ever end? my heart is bleeding

and I just can’t get this image out of my head
a little child in pain lying in a hospital bed
heartbeats getting faster in fear

amplitudes on a screen
about to disappear

we have to free ourselves from this sickness

I’m seized with remorse
all day long
trying to comprehend
trying to figure out
what I could do
Track Name: Night Train Talks (Monica)
and I wonder what has happened to you
what troubles in life you’ve been through
how little joy and how much pain

how did you get to this point?

pouring out your heart to strangers
talking about what you’ve lost in life
talking about how you feel tonight
and that you know what would
be the right thing to do

but this sickness it holds you
with cold fingers around your neck
your eyes begging please, oh please
don’t turn your back on me
like everyone else did

please don’t turn your back

I can’t do this fight alone
I can’t find a way out

turning to the bottle again
day after day
night after night
keep asking yourself
is it worth the fight?

I hope you’re alright
Track Name: Ailleurs
'father, tell me, where are we heading to?
why are we leaving home?
are you listening to me?
I am scared and I can’t sleep'

'my beloved son
I only want all the best for you
and believe me I won’t rest
until you are save again
with a future and a dream to chase

we’re searching our luck elsewhere
there’s nothing left for us here

we had to leave fast
all things were packed
no chance for goodbyes
will I ever come back?

we’re searching for luck elsewhere
there’s nothing left for us here'

through the deepest seas
across the highest mountains they flee
driven by hope and awful memories

can we even imagine how this must feel like?
leaving home with no chance for goodbyes

'will I ever come back?'
Track Name: Dear Brother
'dear brother, this won’t help us
oh brother, this won’t help us

you could be right, but I still believe
that maybe it will, maybe it will

dear brother, this won’t help us
oh brother, this won’t help us

you could be right, but I still believe
that maybe it will, maybe it will'

and so they watched him burn in peace

the whole world watched him burn in peace
Track Name: Night Train Talks (Old Man)
'if you find it, keep it close
hide it from evil eyes and greedy hands
if you find it, keep it close
day and night, let no one ever take it from you

it’s the most precious to own
it stands above it all

I can tell you son, cause I’ve been there
I’d give it all just to feel it once again
but this flame is dead now for so long
it’s far gone and I fear that it won’t come back again'

and I’m still figuring out what he was talking about
lying awake, with no chance for sleep
trying to make sense
trying to find the meaning behind his words

'if you find it, keep it close
hide it from evil eyes and greedy hands
if you find it, keep it close
day and night, let no one ever take it from you
Track Name: Common Blues
more and more we forget what’s worth living for
and what matters most

always trying not to fail
but losing our path anyway
we’re hiding our inner selfs
behind masks and thick walls

we won’t dare to speak forbidden words
because the truth, it hurts
just too much

we close our eyes to it
and turn away
rather keep on lying
than displease anyone
while trying to fit in
we betray ourselves

we play our sick, pathetic roles
in this everyday play
day after day

drowning in our own sad stories
our mistakes, our fears, our worries

and when we look up to the stars
we realize just how small we are

oh how we take it all for granted
and forget just how precious life is
playing our roles day after day
don’t let this gift waste away

don’t let it waste away

and when we look up to the stars
we realize just how small we are

dare to take a further step
don’t give up, make the best of your choices
dare to let your flaws behind
make up your mind
this is your life

oh how we take it all for granted
and forget just how precious life is

don’t let it waste away
Track Name: Fragments
I’m not special, I’m not much
I’ve learned from people I met
from those who’ve touched my heart, my soul
those who changed my view
and let my mind grow
who inspired me to believe in myself
to become who I am now

retracing the process
I finally see
I’ve always been from messed up to crisis
I never wanted to hurt anyone on my way
but I guess I did
I guess we all do, all the same mistakes
unfortunately, this is how it always was
how it will always be
I feel like my time’s running out
I’m getting older but am I getting wiser as well?

only time will tell
maybe I just want to leave my mark in this world
before I disappear again
a body turned cold, unimportant
untold stories of a lifetime
secrets I keep
forever hidden in my mind, buried deep
too afraid, to let anyone find them

no, release me from this dark night
clear my sight, hope, bring me home

please my friends, believe me
I’m not always like this
bitter and frustrated
cause it all seems pointless
or maybe I am just too ambitious, too focused?

I never meant to cause a mess
repeating the same old excuses
again and again
but the truth is
I’m the only one to blame

I never wanted to disappoint those I care about
those who still love me all the same, without any doubt

is it all in my head
is there a way out?
Track Name: Night Train Talks (The Angst In Us)
I watched the clouds getting darker
matching my state of mind
and I just couldn’t help it

did I make peace with my mistakes?
the doubt still remains
persistently, only slowly fading away

and then I saw her
her eyes filled with tears
her face a reflection
of my own fears

'I’m sorry, can I help you?
it seems like you could need someone, someone to talk to'

'what could you probably do or say
that would make all of my demons just go away?

I want it all to disappear
so say, can you take me away from here?
to leave behind all what I’ve done
and what was done to me
so say, do you really think that you could fix this?'

we watched the clouds getting darker
matching our state of mind
did we make peace with our mistakes?
the doubt remains, not fully fading away

'listen girl, you’re not alone
facing the horrors of this world

remember what’s worth living for
remember all the things that you once adored

just hold on to it
hold on and never let go'
Track Name: Life's An Ugly Beauty
an overwhelming joy
I never felt before
I’d give it all away
it’s you I adore
you brought the light back into my life

and when you smile
the whole world seems to smile with you
and when you laugh
my heart skips a beat

but on that day it was ripped apart
I swear it was just a glimpse, just a second
you were gone suddenly
who stole you from us?
who stole you from me?

can you hear me?
we used to be happy
how could you dare to erase such beauty
I’m not quite sure if I ever truly hated
but I truly hate you
you’re all the world’s evil impersonated

so listen closely
whoever you are
wherever you hide
you should fear for your life
cause I swear if I find you
I’ll bring it to an end
with my own bare hands

for you’ve stolen a life
and the joy that was mine
eye for an eye
I am probably losing my mind

how could you dare to defile such innocence
I cannot understand
I cannot grasp one single clear thought
oh my calls fade away into the dark
there’s no light left
not one single spark

you took our child, destroyed our lives
you stole the light, the joy that was mine
you destroyed her life
you destroyed my life
Track Name: Second Part Of A Tragedy
the latest mistake I made
was letting this all slip away
from the harshest seas
to the calmest of bays
I think I didn’t capture it the right way

oh I got it all wrong

and I’ll take it all on my own
the weight on my shoulders yet heavy
still there’s even more to carry
but I’ll carry it, I will carry it

oh free me
come free me
there used to be air in my lungs
there used to be blood in my veins

such regret, shattered hearts
would you come back with me, right to the start?
let’s set sail once again
hoping that we won’t sink in the end

oh free me
come free me
there used to be air in my lungs,
there used to be blood in my veins

oh I got it all wrong
