Captain on a pirate ship The black flag just ain’t that dark Made my way down to the docks In the storm, the canons were shot aimed at me I guess she hit the spot A second blurred my sight When my head hit the sand She whispered slowly while taking my hand She said Let’s not speak about tomorrow Let’s make pretend we’re freezing time Let’s make the best of what is left of our time Right here together Leaving for the farthest trip She´ll never stay that long When headed to the docks She whispered slowly while taking my hand She said Let’s not speak about tomorrow Let’s make pretend we’re freezing time Let’s make the best of what is left of our time Right here together Let’s make pretend there’s no tomorrow Let’s keep on telling silly jokes and working on our smiles So when the time has come to kiss ourselves goodbye. We won’t be bitter How long have I fed on this crap I´m trying really hard not to set and avoid traps Am I sober now...

I’ve been stealin’ x4 Everything anything everything that would remind me of you I’ve been breaking x4 Everything anything everything that would remind me of you I am always Dancing your way You ignore me I’m going crazy Ah-ah-ah-ah Am I acting like a freak? Do you see me You avoid me I see people laughing at me Ah-ah-ah-ah Will you ever dance with me Hell is burnin’, hell is burning inside I’ve been shaking x4 For anything everything anything any word coming from you I’ve been foolin’ x4 Everyone anyone all I’ve done i did it because of you Are we dancing? Are we dancing at all?

Growing up 03:57
Back in that summer We’d all hang out and laugh Good times last forever Who’d expect they´d slip so fast I still remember smiling, laughing, not dancing Enjoying every midnight snack together Living in a comfort zone of careless fun and madness I thought I’d lost it all somewhere inside Sometimes here and there it makes its way out to the surface We have grown to be ourselves …too fast Back in that summer We were our own fires We stood shoulder to shoulder Shared hope, fear and desires I still remember smocking, crying, writing Stupid songs about each other’s lovers Living in a comfort zone of careless fun and madness I thought I’d lost it all somewhere inside Sometimes here and there it makes its way out to the surface We have grown to be ourselves …too fast I don’t fear growing now Memories don’t all fade out From 20 years ago Living in a comfort zone of careless fun and madness I thought I’d lost it all somewhere inside Sometimes here and there it makes its way out to the surface We have grown to be ourselves …too fat…

One in the morning, I turn off the lights It’s cold and it’s dark here, you do get used to that When I am older, I will turn on the lights I’ll warm up my brothers, and we’ll all get used to that Killing time ‘Til we die Make it good It’s no race, we all make it on time I have committed to serve you, for shelter and food We all acknowledged our warmth, depended on you My neighbors were nice and, together we’ve been through much A five letter word burned, and we went back to being cold Truth implies There’ll be lies Scars embraced Do not all disappear from our mind Now that I’m older, my hands wrinkled and cold I got why my fathers’ father, he was all used to that When gathered and spoke loud about you, not providing the heat You laughed pointing out numbers, leaving us with cold feet Some of my brothers Loud enough planted seeds Justice blindly condemned them At least, they get to eat

Shining gold 04:17
I can feel that the breeze has ceased Now the smell from behind Feeds my doubts should I fast forward Or rewind All the words where clearly spoke in rhymes Sometimes smiles only cover up failing minds Face the sudden death And the promises made, They're all shining gold When even the fire's dead cold Sneaking smell seems so sweet and swell Now that I’ve turned around Swearing jaws from behind are now calm and quite kind All your words where clearly spoke in rhymes Frozen smiles will disappear in time Face the sudden death And the promises made, They're all shining gold All that you said all I heard I recall From the silence we’ve shared deciding once and for all Are you in? Are you out? Will you shout Out the ghost you create is what you are all about Dive in deep waters Take a breath deeper You decide if this ghost will or not be Cruel, foul or scary to me All your words where clearly spoke in rhymes Frozen smiles will disappear in time Face the sudden death And the promises made, They're all shining gold
