    1. Glass House

      Goodbye old friend, my paranoid
      We'll meet again some day
      Life is running out
      I guess I had enough, I need to go now

      I used to live in a house of glass
      Where no-one comes or goes
      Watching life outside
      I used to stand behind the door
      And hope the wind won't blow
      And mess my fears around
      It took me so long to find out where they're hiding

      Music like rain over my deepest feelings
      On your faking land

    2. Go To Hell

      Fuck you all, fuck you
      I don't care
      Go to hell

    3. Rising Of The Tide



      Any day can be the last day in your life
      So make it an unforgettable time
      Another sleepless night, and anxiety attacks
      The doctor said you need some rest

      But you're always on the run, tracing after a place to hide
      You were born to your mum's shaking hands
      The wolves are out tonight, and they're looking for a fight
      As they run at the speed of light
      It seems you're home again

      Don't forget to breathe, while time is running out
      On the clock tower, the window sky
      Any day can be the last day in your life
      So make it an unforgettable time

      Around me blinking lights form a giant neon sign
      You were born in the wrong wrong year
      Your soul is freezing ice, but still they're asking for a slice
      You had to feed those monster hearts
      When you're home again

      You feel you had enough, it's like the rising of the tide
      You're a shadow just passing by
      The wolves are out tonight and they're looking for a fight
      And they run at the speed of light
      It seems you're home again

    4. Waving

      Turn up the noise
      Let's see if you can maintain your poise
      Edge out the door
      And feel it if you swim back to the shore

      I do believe
      I'm clinging to the warm bleed in the trees

      I wave and I turn off the light

      Your dress may be torn but you wear it well
      All this and more may be in your spell
      Four letter word but it isn't real
      All this speed inside you
      A sneer on the edge of your sanity
      Your bludgeon the soud like it's unappealing
      Pouring your scorn on all pride and joy
      All this fear inside you

    5. Far Away

      Wherever I stay there's a feeling I'm so far away
      I got no home town
      I never put roots down

      I bet you feel safe keeping your life in a cage
      While I take my chances
      But it always collapses

      I really don't know what it needs
      To put my smile on
      To turn the light on
      It always seems I'm falling down
      They think I'm crazy
      They think I'm crazy

      There's a child in me still hiding behind the old tree
      But aren't we all hiding?
      Until the moment we're dying
      Now maybe I'm free, but freedom just means that's I'm lost
      It feels like I'm driving
      Without ever arriving

      Wherever I stay there's a feeling I'm so far away
      I got no home town
      I used to run so fast

    6. Dissolving With The Night


      Soon I'll disappear into the deepest space
      I won't leave a trace
      I can count on one hand all my glorious days
      And cry out all the rest

      What an unforgettable past
      From my first day to the last
      I was in panic there
      Watching mountains collapse
      Dreams turn to dust
      We're dissolving with the night

      All the stupid bitches on the diamond day
      Soon they'll fade away
      Should I wear the purple dress, that's all she cares about
      What a silly life she has

      All these people who smile
      Never cry
      But it's fine with me
      With their feet on the ground
      Blinded by the sun
      Never asking more from life

      Soon I'll disappear into the deepest space
      I won't leave a trace

    7. Blood

      Here comes the blood

    8. On The Plane

      Standing in the corridor, it's just another day
      You never were the kind of boy who ran outside to play
      You're passing through the kitchen behind your mother's back
      While she says "your father's on the plane"

      The rain against the windows, you're waiting on the stairs
      You double check the driveway for someone standing there
      You calculate the chances of presents on your bed tonight
      Daddy's on his way

      Daddy's on the plane
      Soon you'll meet again
      Daddy's on the plane
      That's what mother said
      While you were waiting

      Nothing ever happens in your neighbourhood
      You'd like to run so far away if you only could
      It seems that all the people have nothing much to say anyway
      Daddy's on his way

      Daddy's on the plane
      Soon you'll meet again
      Daddy's on the plane
      That's what mother said
      While you were waiting

    9. Oxygen

      So far away
      We lost the way
      There's no oxygen left on our planet

      Empty words
      Break on our lips
      There's no oxygen left on our planet

      Everyone sleeping with their guns
      Someone's going to die
      So much noise
      We're a bunch of boys
      We were born to lie

      I feel alive
      Just when I cry
      There's no oxygen left on our planet

      Things we've said
      And then regret
      There's no oxygen left on our planet

      Everyone sleeping with their guns
      Someone's going to die
      So much noise
      We're a bunch of boys
      We were born to lie

      So far away
      We lost the way
      There's no oxygen left on our planet

    10. Zigota

      Don't you fight, don't you fight
      When your death is calling for a ride
      Close your eyes, close your eyes
      You won't suffer there above the clouds

      Don't you know there's only one way out?
      And it comes when it comes
      When it's time
      For sharing some tears
      And forget in a minute why
      The reason they cried

      One direction with no turning back
      Soon it will turn to black, soon it will turn to black

      Soon you'll find, soon you'll find
      Today is just the future of the past
      Don't you cry, don't you cry
      You are just an accident of stars

      One direction with no turning back
      Soon it will turn to black, soon it will turn to black
      One direction with no turning back
      Soon it will turn to black, soon it will burn to black

      Don't you fight, don't you fight
      When your death is calling for a ride

    11. DNA

      DNA
      Welcome to my DNA
      Stupidly you want to stay with my DNA

      DNA
      You cannot fix what you get
      Thing that I try to forget in my DNA

      Can you forgive me for things that I've said?
      Things that I've done?
      Go now and never come back

      DNA
      We all got expiry dates
      Trust me there's no get away from my DNA

      DNA
      Wires of sadness and pain
      Always remaining the same, my DNA

      Disarmed by the music, there's bombs in my head
      You'll always get burned
      Go now and never come back

      My deadly venom, soon I'll be dead
      Go now my love
      Go now and never come back
