Track Name: Ouh, my darling
Ouh my darling it’s time to be honest
Na-ouh my darling it’s time that we end this game of chest

A synthesizer ain’t a piano
And we’ve been speaking sideways what we already know
Pretty close ain’t close enough
We spoil our coffee with way too much sugar
Smiling eye to eye as if we could understand
What we both kind of try to mean…

Ouh my darling it’s time to be honest
Na-ouh my darling it’s time that we end this game of chest

The river flows and time’s unforgiving
It only helps to forget what we don’t wanna know
When what we know is way too much
Inside out we’re stuck here together
Until we speak our heart out so we can understand
What we all really mean now…

Ouh my darling it’s time to be honest
Na-ouh my darling it’s time that we end this game of chest

I can’t explain the rules of this game
It’s going on and on…
Mis-entertained, confused and drained
It’s going on and on…

Ouh my darling it’s time to be honest
Na-ouh my darling it’s time that we end this game of chest
That we end this game of chest
That we end this game of chess
Track Name: The voice of silence
I´ve always tried to move forward, the shell can´t crack
Careful to cover my tracks
I threw away most of memories, the good and bad
So I could never look back

BUT SILENCE SPEAKS TO ME SO LOUDER
WHEN TRYING TO CHEAT WHAT I SHOULD REMEMBER
THE BODY SCREAMS OUR PAIN AND LAUGHTER
ALL THAT WE THINK WE´VE SEALED IS NOT LOCKED INSIDE FOREVER

It´s all coming back some way or another
I keep the noise up to avoid the faceless fear of
The Thought Reaper

She always sings at night with discomfort
They all cannot be thrown but hide away
When I lie to sleep, there´s no more liar
I only preach so long without her
Now, I know it´s threnody…
Ouuuuuuuuuhhhh…
Whispering sounds

The wrinkles on your frown
Rise up your heat
It freezes your feet
Never shut down X4

BUT SILENCE SPEAKS TO ME SO LOUDER
WHEN TRYING TO CHEAT WHAT I SHOULD REMEMBER

but silence speaks to me so louder
(to me so louder)
when trying to cheat we i should remember
(what we should all remember)
the body screams our pain and laughter
all that we think we´ve sealed is not locked inside forever
as we conceed to bleed and feed the open scars to our own personal deceit
while we all cheat what we should remember
Track Name: Life without a fight
Today is the first time in our lives,
we said we're giving up, starting to realize.
We may just be waiting for our time.
I'm here to say we're fine, we're gonna be alright.

They were more than blacked out whiskey nights.
It was smoking cigarettes watching the sunrise.

We sing whoa whoa life without the fight.
It's like day without the night, love without the fire.
We sing whoa whoa, so we carry on.
We're not here for that long, so get lost in every song.

Today not the first time in our lives, we woke up in a sweat, ain't got no where to hide.
We may just be waiting for our sign.
Society's defined, these years to wasted lines.

They were more than dropped out high school cries.
It was living for something, no life of compromise.
Broken, beaten, bruised down to the wire.
Forgotten wrong from right, transfixed by midnight skies.

We bleed it.
We soaked those night with gasoline.
Still breathing.

Today is the first time in our lives, we said we're giving up, starting to realize.
We may just be waiting for our time.
I'm here to say we're fine, we're gonna be alright.

We sing whoa whoa life without the fight.
It's like day without the night, love without the fire.
We sing whoa whoa, so we carry on.
We're not here for that long, so get lost in every song.

We bleed it.
We bleed it.
Track Name: Seth Anderson - Meteor
Could be sitting here, waiting all our lives.
Looking for that signal, for that meteor from the sky.
We’ll be sitting here, thinking 'bout the lines.
That been drawn out in the sand, and crossed and left behind.

But in memories, we’ll find some proof, of people waiting there for you.

We will be free, in melody.
It is our voice.

There’s something that’s highlighted in my mind.
Since I was a young lad, since I was a young boy wild.
There’s something I’ve been thinking all the time.
Since I was thrown out to the world, and told to walk a mile.

But in our hearts, we’ll find hidden youth.
It has been waiting there for you.
And in our peace, we found happiness.
We’ll give it all till nothing left.

We will be free, in melody.
It is our voice.

And in our hearts, we’ll find hidden youth.
It has been waiting there for you.
And in our peace, we found happiness.
We’ll give it all till nothing left.

We will be free, in melody.
It is our voice.
