Track Name: Let´s not speak about tomorrow
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...
Track Name: Dance with me
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?
Track Name: Growing up
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…
Track Name: One in the morning
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
Track Name: Shining gold
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
