Track Name: Blistering Lights
Blistering Lights (2009)

Blistering lights
Kept spinning my head as I walk down the streets
An endless fight
Is to put a foot in front of the other

I can’t recall
The number of times that I have crossed the road
And I don’t know
Why there is oatmeal all over my pillow

And it’s always been the same
I said I wouldn’t get wasted
But it’s hard to refuse when
All you got is fucked up friends
Still up at the dawn, we’ll wander on

Blistering lights,
Kept spinning my head as you’re talking to me
If I fall or rise
It would feel the same for what I still can see

The liver collides
The empire built hits a wall along the way
Too heavy to fly
But too fucking light to get stuck on the ground

Jack engine* or rum and coke
A guiness or a pabst that’s cold
It doesn’t make a difference to me
One more round to liberty
Bottoms up we’ll all be free

Getting high and getting lost
Not giving hell, not giving up
Some say to us to settle down
To drop the things we made on our own
Let’s call it a life, we’ve had enough

*Jack engine is a drink including Jack Daniel's and Gin, don't ever try this at home.
Track Name: Highway Twenty
Highway Twenty (2012)

Let’s leave with all the doors and windows closed
So when this place burns to the ground
The past will stay where it belongs
And won’t you come around to change my mind
And make me throw the anchor down
Let’s leave while the sun is still asleep

These eyes are waiting
For something more
To let these guns blast
And tear down the walls

So here I am between two rivers once again
Retracing every step, and trying to make it seem relevant

Walking through this casket lane
And no signs of the end

We’ll take these blackened streets
And burn them to the ground
With no regrets for what we had
And no retreat, no coming back
There’s no need to sit around in shame
We’ll tear this city down
And build on what remains

So here I am standing on this edge once again
Retracing every step, and trying again to be relevant
So I’ll keep running by this edge until I fall
Along with that sinking feeling that just comes and leaves.
Track Name: The Gold Rush
The Gold Rush (2011)

I’m trying to find the meaning of all these words
To take away this blurry vision that is ruining my world
As I go towards the unknown
I realize that I don’t know much about my own

The time is running faster than I can
My breath is short, but I can’t stop
I just wish their clock is wrong
So I could wait for another lap, standing strong

I know a road that leads to gold
But it’s hard for me to leave the sheets of my heart unfold
I can see the glitter of the fire
But the flames could burn down all of my desires

Sometimes I ask myself if I am insane
To walk alone again under the rain
'cause I might miss the only train

I need to break through this glass ceiling
I can’t stand anymore to look but not trying
These four walls are getting me weaker
Like a wooden box buried six feet under

I know a road that leads to gold
But it’s hard for me to leave the sheets of my heart unfold
I can see the glitter of the fire
But the flames could burn down all of my desires
Track Name: Sinking Habits
Sinking Habits (2011)

Burn the bridges of what you call bygone days and throw yourself in a ditch so you can waste away and step inside the role you want to play.

Like a lemming gang into the greatest hole, it ain’t so hard to fall when the landing remains unknown. Ain't got no place to hide away from the newest circus raging around town. There’s a war in the heads, a genocide without opposition.

So follow the wave but make sure you don’t drown, there is so much more to see without everyone else around. Buried in a crowd where there is no way out and the fence of fear keeps them away from the road, you’ll miss your ride somehow

Well I guess this is growing up, maybe more like giving up, take a deep breath knee deep the sea, the stream comes when you least expect it, but I guess it’s what you wanted

The race that everyone would win turned to a trap as it began; expectations about future life are getting kicked out once again

Now that everybody’s gone, now that it all turns into the same old song, we should just move on and never wonder what went out wrong

So follow the wave but make sure you don’t drown, there is so much more to see without everyone else around. No reason to live with faded hopes and dreams; I’d rather sleep my whole life than being a drone in that scheme, a drone in that boring scheme

This road has been taken so much times, now it’s all cracked and destroyed, this road has been taken so much times now it crashing down.
Track Name: Bottled
Bottled (2012)

A thousand bottles to realize
that the message is nowhere to be found

Picture the scene of what you’re doing right now
Cause it might be the only piece left of the puzzle you broke
Too much is never enough
The glass is full I guess it never felt right to
Stop the flow that leads the ship to perdition
Sailing to a point of distress, falling in too

I have to wake up, even thought I can’t sleep at night
The pressure is high, my head is crushed, I guess I’ll have to
Write down my thoughts and clarify what I feel inside
Cause now I just wanna take off the ride

Another night waiting by the shore
for a guide that will probably never show

I’m drowning into an ocean of fallen hopes, castaway of my reason
Speechless facing the cliffs of the land I used to call my own
(Wake me up)
Before the swell brings me too far away
(Get me out)
Of the wreck that reminds me the darkest days

I gotta wake up, even thought I can’t sleep at night
The pressure is high, my head is crushed, I guess I’ll have to
Write down my thoughts and clarify what I feel inside
Cause now I just wanna take off the ride
