Nothing 03:05
There’ll be no summer this year. I heard it on the news today. But for me it’s no big deal. I knew it all along and I’m used to the rain. Now there’s nothing you could give me that it’s worth my precious time because everything you promised was a lie. Now there’s nothing you could tell me that could make me change my mind. I know I won’t find my way looking behind. Some say clouds are drawing near. All I feel is wind of change. I have nothing more to fear. It’s not because I’m strong, it’s ‘cause my interest’s waned.

Revenge 02:33
You say “c'est la vie” but I know life's not fair, don't ask for forgiveness you're not gonna change, every time I see you I see fear on your face 'cause deep inside we both know I'll have revenge. I've had enough of you and maybe I'm the one who's crazy but I'll have no mercy. You will be dead soon. Your fat limbs will feed the streets and I'll uncork champagne to celebrate your doom. Your thick red blood, the rain and your childlish cry blacken the concrete and confuse my eyes. Since I've dreamed about this like one million times, I don't know if it's real or all in my mind.
3.
I went to find the wizard so he could give me courage. All I found was a bar and now everything's blurry. I am meeting you now so we can set things clear. I don't know what will happen, I just know this ends here. And every time I see you I just can't read the signs 'cause you're too fucking complicated. But I'm taking the leap and if I got you wrong, it's an honest mistake I'm making. We're face to face again, I don't know what you want. I know you read my mind, but I can't read yours. It's a fact that we're friends, but I want much more. There is an awkward silence and your look's my weak spot.
4.
You're looking rusty and old. Once you shined, now your done. All your life treasured as gold hangs in photos on your wall. You're regreting everything you thought of but never did. You told me I gotta learn not to make the same mistakes and I will take a plane and travel around the world. And then, I'll send some postcards to myself from every place to prove that I was there, to prove myself that I have really lived. You’re looking calm and wise living the end of your life. I’m taking heed, I do it proud. I promise I won’t let you down.

Back in Town 03:04
I've seen you around. For the first time in years you're back in town. And you looked down dodging my sight but smiling bringing back our old memories from the lost and found. We hid in your mezzanine, between cars, in parking lots, sins will never be redeemed but I cherish them like gold When I see these days are long gone I realize that we're both getting old. Things will never be the same. It's been too long since we lost our innocence. You’ve seen me around. For the first time in years I’m back in town. And I looked down dodging your sight but smiling bringing back our old memories from the lost and found. For you I'll always yearn.

Release Me 03:36
Last night when we were on the bridge the city lights were dim, the clock ticked slowly. I was afraid of everything, afraid of you and me, you didn't seem to care. I don't know why I was so numb, I feel so strange every time you're around 'cause something has changed, I am not the same, something's wrong inside my head. You've poisoned my brain with hugs and hopes and smiles when I was in pain. Five years since I last felt like this, I'm trembling on my knees, disarm, absent and weak. I don't know what you've done to me, but it burns inside my skin, so please, please, release me. If you can see the way I feel, stop the fucking game or make it real.
7.
Violence 02:34
Spent the day in bed. I'm so fucking bored. My guitar's collecting dust and I have run out of chords. There's so much to do, and nothing at all. I need something else tonight 'cause I'm fed up of this world. There is a hole growing inside my head. It tells me I need to get my dose of violence. I'm in a weird mood and I can't control all the darkness in my head that's starting to unfold. And I bite my tongue trying to kill my thoughts but a switch has flicked inside of my head with the taste of blood.
8.
You say you can't find a reason, at least not one good enough, that could explain any of the stupid things that I do or justify why I don't seem to grow up. I will never learn from any of my past mistakes and I can't fix the things I've wronged the bridges burned. I know myself, I'll do it time and time again 'cause seasons change, but I remain the same. I think that I simply like it or so they've told me a million times. And I won't change just 'cause you tell me that I have to. I won't change because I like the way I am.
9.
Your indifference is what hurts me the most I feel like a thief that steals kisses from you and even though you're with me and that's all I dreamed of, I believe that you could give me something more. And if you let me I'd give you everything and maybe I wouldn't feel I was much better off alone. And I feel we were much better before when we weren't together. Sometimes you even gave me a little bit of love. Too many temptations and I can't give in. I can't sleep and my brain is working full time. And even though I had always liked strange girls for bad or good you're the strangest I could find. So please smile cry or hit me, show me everything you've got 'cause I've given you my insides and you haven't showed me yours and I think you're with me because you have nothing else to do but I hold onto this fact 'cause there is nothing I want more than you. And now you don't.
10.
I can barely see your face but I'm sure that you've been crying. Fake a smile play the game, you're much better off without him. Maybe it doesn't make much sense, but we're here using each other. We're leading ourselves astray, ut I need something until I can find my own way. Please hurt me more, but give me a little love. Our beaten souls need a lover. I feel no shame. I feel nothing, no regrets 'cause she took my black heart away. You feel the same, your eyes show nothing but hate, but I won't ask because I'm here to play. One day I will be OK, I'm not sure if you'll recover. Am I selfish if I say that if I don't need you again I will leave you in your own pain? Please hurt me more, but give me a little love. I'll hurt you too before it's over. It's only temporary. No shame, no love, no feelings, nothing. It's only entertainment, nothing more.

No Way Out 02:48
The same streets under my feet, the ones I swore I'd leave. Well, I was wrong because I have drown deep in this bricks and mortar sea and now I know there's no way to get out of here You're always dragged back to this town 'cause not long ago I went to the horizon and back to find myself. All the dreams that I once had the ones I've given up. They were nowhere. Now I see it. I finally see it clear. All I’ve built are castles in the air. Now I see it. Where I belong is here. All I've built are bridges to nowhere.
12.
I thought I was shatter-proof until I saw my first bruise. I was scared for a while, then I ordered some more booze. As I took the first sip suddenly ten years passed by and I wondered again “What's my purpose in this life?” What can I do when everything real fades away? I could ignore it, but I rather lead the way, 'cause I'm just a loner and I'm not a hero but I guess I could pretend. It seems getting old is falling from grace. I thought I was shatter-proof until I saw my first bruise. Now I'm proud of my scars like a kid with shiny shoes. Oblivious to painless threats, my joy has always endured since I got to forget everything I though I knew. When the landscape looks so stark than even the light looks dark. When you don't know who you are. You just need a little spark.
