Track Name: Radio Silence
RADIO SILENCE

Straight from the ashes of silicon skies
A burning sensation grows inside
Creeping and crawling, saints and sinners
Preaching of endings and new beginnings
Force of nature
Stranger danger

Radio silence fills the air across the great divide
Fighter pilots with the sun in their eyes
Bending space and time
Somewhere down the line
Radio silence is the sound of denial

Straight from the ashes of silicon skies
Millions of faces, empty smiles
Lost in the airwaves a last transmission
A steady crescendo, a final condition

Force of nature
Stranger danger

Radio silence fills the air across the great divide
Fighter pilots with the sun in their eyes
Bending space and time
Somewhere down the line
Radio silence is the sound of denial

A snap of a finger
A single command
A final decision close at hand
No compromise
No change of heart
No time to run away, away

Radio silence fills the air across the great divide
Fighter pilots with the sun in their eyes
Bending space and time
Somewhere down the line
Radio silence is the sound of denial
Track Name: Vertigo
VERTIGO

Do you ever get the feeling
That you cannot break away
Like you're swimming with your hands tied
You die a little every day

The promise, the breakup
And all those wasted years
Lay it on the line (Lay it on the line)
Lay it on me

Listen to the sound of a lonely heart
Broken in two and torn apart
When something happening years ago
Turned love into a vertigo
Shooting for the stars going way too high
From the start to the last goodbye
When something happening years ago
Turned love into a vertigo

Do you ever get the feeling
That you cannot stay the course
Like you're going round in circles
In a room without a door

The good times, the bad times
And all those wasted tears
Lay it on the line (Lay it on the line)
Lay it on me

Listen to the sound of a lonely heart
Broken in two and torn apart
When something happening years ago
Turned love into a vertigo
Shooting for the stars going way too high
From the start to the last goodbye
When something happening years ago
Turned love into a vertigo

The promise, the breakup
And all those wasted years
Lay it on the line (Lay it on the line)
Lay it on me (Lay it on me)
It's all that we can do (All that we can do)
It's all that we can be

Listen to the sound of a lonely heart
Broken in two and torn apart
When something happening years ago
Turned love into a vertigo
Shooting for the stars going way too high
From the start to the last goodbye
When something happening years ago
Turned love into a vertigo

Something happening years ago
Turned love into a vertigo
Something happening years ago
Turned love into a vertigo
Track Name: Gods And Demons
GODS AND DEMONS

Empty promises wrapped inside a sparkling shell
Dreams and fairy tales making for an easy sell

Day by day chasing high after high, living close to the edge with your head in the clouds
But you can't stop now, you are trying too hard, in the race for a ride on the merry-go-round of your life

Getting lost in a hype that has already passed
Needing more, more, more for a feeling to last

Day by day chasing high after high, living close to the edge with your head in the clouds
But you can't stop now, you are trying too hard, in the race for a ride on the merry-go-round of life

Hey now, what's the point
Running around and going nowhere
Caught in a lion's den
Gods and demons in the schoolyard

Day by day chasing high after high, living close to the edge with your head in the clouds
But you can't stop now, you are trying too hard, in the race for a ride on the merry-go-round of your life

Voices in your head
Trying to ease the pain
When you ease the pain
The cycle starts again
Voices in your head
Trying to ease the pain
When you ease the pain
The cycle starts again
Track Name: Navy Blue
NAVY BLUE

I am the great white
You are the landslide
We rise in silence, one of a kind
Let's play it cool, just me and you
Let us leave it all behind together dressed in navy blue

This is our time
This is our time
To raise alarms
A call to arms
This is our time
This is our time
To take control
To stand or fall

I am the reason
You are the rhyme
We keep our heads down, and bide our time
Let's play it cool, just me and you
Let us leave it all behind together dressed in navy blue

This is our time
This is our time
To raise alarms
A call to arms
This is our time
This is our time
To take control
To stand or fall

I am the wave
You are the tide
The rolling thunder, the flash of light
Let's play it cool, just me and you
Let us leave it all behind together dressed in navy blue

This is our time
This is our time
To raise alarms
A call to arms
This is our time
This is our time
To take control
To stand or fall

This is our time
This is our time
To raise alarms
A call to arms
This is our time
This is our time
To take control
To stand or fall
Track Name: Wasteland
WASTELAND

Lonely headlights on an empty street
The air is tiring, tasting bittersweet
Silent speakers hanging from the wall
I remember – or do I anymore?

A little part of me will always be there with you
If you stay true to yourself
A little part of you will always be here with me
I still remember your face

As the years go passing by
Thinking of times and familiar places
I want to see you eye to eye
Shining in the light of a neon sunset
The rain falls down again in the wasteland of a colorful past
The rain falls down again in the wasteland tonight

First impressions, lasting memories
Covered windows, abandoned factories
Faded posters of a circus show
I remember – or do I anymore?

A little part of you will always be here with me
I still remember your face

As the years go passing by
Thinking of times and familiar places
I want to see you eye to eye
Shining in the light of a neon sunset
The rain falls down again in the wasteland of a colorful past
The rain falls down again in the wasteland tonight
Track Name: Reasons To Remember
REASONS TO REMEMBER

Lying on the floor I can see a crack in the ceiling, edging closer
Lying on the floor I can see a fly getting restless sensing trouble
Somewhere out of sight I can hear a radio playing songs of mourning
Somewhere out of sight I can hear a low voice calling my name

Broken toys, broken buildings, reasons to remember
Grinding knives on a kite string, fear of giving in
Until the lights go out
In the shadow of a mushroom cloud
Swaying to the left, swaying to the right
Talk is cheap it blows my mind

Lying in the grass I can see the sky is changing, rearranging
Lying in the grass I can see a raven staring into empty spaces
Somewhere out of sight I can hear a choir singing songs of mourning
Somewhere out of sight I can hear a low voice calling my name

Broken toys, broken buildings, reasons to remember
Grinding knives on a kite string, fear of giving in
Until the lights go out
In the shadow of a mushroom cloud
Swaying to the left, swaying to the right
Talk is cheap it blows my mind

Broken toys, broken buildings, reasons to remember
Grinding knives on a kite string, fear of giving in
Until the lights go out
In the shadow of a mushroom cloud
When the days go by
Under cover of a blackened sky
Swaying to the left, swaying to the right
Talk is cheap it blows my mind
Track Name: Teardrops In The Rain
TEARDROPS IN THE RAIN

Give me some room to breathe
Give me some room to breathe for now
Words are there to be spoken
Hearts are meant to be broken

Open your eyes and see
Open your eyes and see the signs
There is no happy ending
Playing games and pretending

What you are or meant to be
Constantly waiting, anticipating
Holding out for slow release
Lost in the moment until it’s gone
Like teardrops in the rain

Show me your secret side
Show me your secret side and try
To embrace what you’re given
Don’t regret what is missing

Take off your fake disguise
Take off your fake disguise, give in
There is no happy ending
Playing games and pretending

What you are or meant to be
Constantly waiting, anticipating
Holding out for slow release
Lost in the moment until it’s gone
Like teardrops in the rain

What you are or meant to be
Constantly waiting, anticipating
Holding out for slow release
Lost in the moment until it’s gone
Like teardrops in the rain

Like teardrops in the rain
Like teardrops in the rain
Like teardrops in the rain
