Track Name: Weapons Of Massive Distraction
Just sit back and relax, get rid of all the negative tension
Have a single look it’s all they need to catch your attention

Welcome you’re not hurt only hypnotized
by a weapon of massive distraction
Just forget about your care they’ll make sure
you get your fix of daily satisfaction
right till the end and you’ll never get enough

From the bottom of your chair you stare
at the streaming flow of images
Numb from all the non-sense they keep feeding
Thinking you’re still in control
The addiction is sinking in
You can’t escape the sickening (feeling)

Entertainment has become our mind-bending daily routine
a subtle underestimated form of violence
Prefab dreams on your brand new flat TV screen
On every ad, on every display, on every cover of your magazines

From the bottom of your chair you stare
at the streaming flow of images
Numb from all the non-sense they keep feeding
Thinking you’re still in control
The addiction is sinking in
You can’t escape the sickening (feeling)

Motionless, disconnected, mesmerized eyes
you're medicated

From the bottom of your chair you stare
at the streaming flow of images
Numb from all the non-sense they keep feeding
Thinking you’re still in control
The addiction is sinking in
You can’t escape the sickening (feeling)
Track Name: Fighting The Odds
Holding breath, spilling blood, hanging by a thread
Even in the darkest times we’ve never ceased to hold our ground
Never ready to let die and to back down
With the weight of the world on our shoulders
We wandered every step of the way
We strived so hard not to go astray

Bending never breaking, slowing down never stopping
Fighting the odds with a common passion to believe in
Fighting always trusting, Falling always standing
Turning the tide this ship is not sinking

Another letdown, another disappointment
One more situation that stands in the way
Running out of time waiting on the sideline
With a constant fear not to make it through
Armed with such a dedication and
the greatest persistence to refuse the end

Fighting always trusting, Falling always standing
Turning the tide this ship is not sinking
Bending never breaking, slowing down never stopping
Fighting the odds with a common passion to believe in

Words with a deeper meaning I won’t let it go
This world’s got so much more to show

We’ve got scars to prove each and every fight we held out
There’s so much more that we can take, so much less that we can’t face
Track Name: Keep Running
Yesterday’s dreams today’s regrets tomorrow’s hopes
Keep haunting my thoughts
Like sand slipping through my hands
I’ve been watching all this time draining away

I keep running in this race against the clock
Another fight that can’t be won
But is it really wrong to make what you think is right
To keep searching for this light?

And I can’t keep looking back and regret
All the wrong decisions I made
And I can’t keep looking back and complain
About this precious time I wasted

I keep running in this race against the clock
Another fight that can’t be won
But is it really wrong to make what you think is right
To keep searching for this light?

Changing numbers the needles are turning faster
The way to my dreams is getting darker I’ll just try harder

I keep running in this race against the clock
Another fight that can’t be won
But is it really wrong to make what you think is right
To keep searching for this light?
Track Name: Revived And Alive
A sunny haze shining on a peaceful day
A laid back mind, killing time, I feel revived and alive
I’ve overpast this feeling all I did was to survive
I’ve found my way back to the stars
Dressed to kill for all these wars

All negative thoughts swept away I look up to the sky
Moving on and keeping my hopes high
I fell before and I’ll fail again, the horizon will darken
With every fall comes a recovery

Heading down this road destination unknown
Eager and so ready for this date with my fate

All negative thoughts swept away I look up to the sky
Moving on and keeping my hopes high
I fell before and I’ll fail again, the horizon will darken
With every fall comes a recovery

I’m turning away from all these shades of grey
I won’t look back on these blurry days
I’ve come to terms and I got to learn
There’s no right or wrong
Just different ways to scrape by

All negative thoughts swept away I look up to the sky
Moving on and keeping my hopes high
I fell before and I’ll fail again, the horizon will darken
With every fall comes a recovery
Track Name: A Long Way To Go
Give me your hand and close your eyes
it's time to draw the line, you're my sinking ship
With you I've learned how to keep my silence
I’ve learned how to escape from within
I will never let myself heal
Before my eyes you disappeared
Without a chance to make it last
I know there’s a still a long, long way to go
Please understand I’ve never been here before

Just take me in tonight and I'll remind you why
Silent kisses held in by these fragile walls
Frozen as I stared at you I’m waiting for my life to change
And I’m dying to take this pain away

These short stories, brief passages in our lives
Get to their unstoppable ending in the blink an of eye
I know there’s still a lot of work to be done
Please understand I’ve never been here before

Just take me in tonight and I'll remind you why
Silent kisses held in by these fragile walls
Frozen as I stared at you I’m waiting for my life to change
And I’m dying

And I’m just one second away from wishing
And I’m just one argument from leaving
One step closer to surrendering myself again
Track Name: Right Choice, Wrong Feeling
A crossroad with another hard decision to make
it seems like I've been there a hundred times before
How could I know which side of the fence to choose
When my heart and my reason collide all the time?

Raising all these questions again they tear me up inside
Trying to resolve which direction to take
I'm back again against the wall defying my own rules
Redefining my standards not to break down

So I’ve made the right choice
But I’ve got this wrong feeling
Wisdom as a motto and keyword
Deep down it doesn’t feel right
The inner struggle never stops somehow

It’s hard to figure out what should prevail in all this confusion
Back and forth stuck into all this indecision
This constant wavering is killing me a little more
I’ve got the answers and a heart dying to be heard

So I’ve made the right choice
But I’ve got this wrong feeling
Wisdom as a motto and keyword
Deep down it doesn’t feel right
The inner struggle never stops somehow

Screaming for a change will I let it be
With a soul to battle and a mind to free
So I’ve made the right choice
But I’ve got this wrong feeling
Wisdom as a motto and keyword
Deep down it doesn’t feel right
The inner struggle never stops somehow

So I’ve made the wrong choice
But I’ve got this right feeling
Action as a motto and keyword
Deep down it fuckin’ feels right
The inner struggle’s come to stop somehow
Track Name: Over And Out
I never wanted you to be waiting, never intended to be defeated
To write this song ink these words, find the meaning in despair
I convinced myself that the beauty is in the attempt
I couldn’t look away and I bore all this contempt

I gave up on myself and fought for what I thought was right
I barely questioned my weakened faith in hope with a few doubts
I confused daylight with the darkest of nights
It was all meant to shine, it ended up a burning lie

I blamed my own shortcomings with guilt and desolation
I came back to my senses to think we’re better off this way

I kept longing for a better change in vain
Assuming the end would justify the pain

I gave up on myself and fought for what I thought was right
I barely questioned my weakened faith in hope with a few doubts
I confused daylight with the darkest of nights
It was all meant to shine, it ended up a burning lie

Why try to make amends
with no heart left to mend
Nothing but a bitter end

I gave up on myself and fought for what I thought was right
I barely questioned my weakened faith in hope with a few doubts
I confused daylight with the darkest of nights
It was all meant to shine, it ended up a burning lie
Track Name: Last Exit To Nowhere
Lost red lights vanishing on a dark night
Neverending countless white lines, obsessing road signs
I’m weak, I’m jaded and I’m staggering
I’m gazing at this saddening scenery

This is the last exit to nowhere
And it feels like we’ll never reach the end
Hundreds miles of concrete through the windshield
Until I fall asleep, this is the last exit to nowhere

Tiredness is putting me back to sleep
Caving in a bit of rest, a little peace
I’m feeling the urge to ease up on my weary mind
But I’m going up against this dire need to relieve

This is the last exit to nowhere
And it feels like we’ll never reach the end
Hundreds miles of concrete through the windshield
Until I fall asleep, this is the last exit to nowhere

My sore eyes can’t help closing
My sight’s blending with these dreams fading in
The morning light awakens me
Suddenly I get to see

This is the first exit to anywhere
And it feels like we’ll always reach the end
Hundreds miles of concrete through the windshield
Until I fall asleep, this is the last exit to nowhere
Track Name: The Future Is Yours To Make
Born and bred to stand in line
Walking with our hands tied and a blindfold on our eyes
How does this one life fits all suit you?
Don’t be afraid to make your own way
Oh It doesn’t come easy, it’s a long run to be free

I won’t let myself be another sad face in this crowd
Every day is a chance to bury your deepest regrets

Rewrite your future and leave all your past behind
Make it start today don’t waste another try to break free

Take back the steering wheel of your destiny
Freedom is to be earned, not to be owned
It doesn’t come with a price tag
but a heavy price to pay and such a great dismay

The choice is all ours to make

I won’t let myself be another sad face in this crowd
Every day is a chance to bury your deepest regrets

One more hope to turn it into a different story
Don’t let tomorrow be another mistake
The future is ours to make

I won’t let myself be another sad face in this crowd
Every day is a chance to bury your deepest regrets
Track Name: My Own Demise
I don’t know if I should smile or just let myself cry
I’ve seen these days pass me by with disappointment in disguise
I’m craving for this moment I will escape from this cold

I’ve got a bitter feeling at the very bottom of my heart
And it makes me wonder why
Am I on the rise or am I witnessing my own demise?

If you expect me to let you know you got me wrong
I’ve been working all these little things out on my own for way too long
Tomorrow I’ll be fine and I’ll be strong
Back to the bright side is where I belong

One step ahead and two steps back
or is it the other way around ? I’m losing track
Have I been paving the way for better days
Or lost myself on another meandering way?

If you expect me to let you know you got me wrong
I’ve been working all these little things out on my own for way too long
Tomorrow I’ll be fine and I’ll be strong
Back to the bright side is where I belong
Track Name: No Place To Call Home
It's hard to take a look back and wonder what my life would be like
I’ve passed the years and I shed all these tears
I've been writing all these songs to keep my heart away
from all these fears but it’s not working out

I’m walking down these streets of innocence again
Taking a trip down memory lane

I’m carrying this sorrow like the heaviest lifechanging sin
Living all these scenes again when life was just a harmless game
Such a final outcome wasn’t meant to be our plan
And I miss those familiar places

A pic of you and me together when we were younger
Standing on its own lost in the back of a drawer
It’s good to see again these old childish laughters
It’s been too long since I haven’t seen life in colors

I’m carrying this sorrow like the heaviest lifechanging sin
Living all these scenes again when life was just a harmless game
Such a final outcome wasn’t meant to be our plan
And I miss those familiar places

The same old recollections on my mind
The same old feeling that this will never end
Can we go back in time change the screenplay
Make it a fiction where reality’s a different game
No matter how many words I write
They never seem to take this pain away

There hasn’t even been a single place since you’ve been gone
that’s ever made me feel like home
This radiant smile on your face has never made me feel so lonely
I’m holding this scar for a lifetime

Touching this hope for a second
Feeling it real for a moment
I can feel you somewhere near
Just pretending you’re right here
