Track Name: hope/wish
i am sorry / for all the hearts / that i broke / but even through these broken hearts / there still runs blood / i´ve never met your expectations / and so hearts break in isolation / i´m not your shoulder – to fucking cry / i´m not the anchor – you can rely / i´m not the compass – to lead you the way / i never promised – that i would stay / there is a difference between hope and wish / i am sorry / for all the dreams / that i broke / but these tired hands / were never supposed to stroke / we all carry our cross / carry the burden, of our ones loved
Track Name: clarity
i threw a stone in the wishing well / to explore its depths / waited for the sound to reach my ears / and create clarity / i tried to explore / the depths of your mind / i tried to light the dark / to see the world with your eyes / even for a blink / i´ve never understood your greatest fears / never even reached the surface / drowning in this wishing well declared salvation / lungs filled with water but far from release / the well is empty / ran out of water / the well is dry / finally dry
Track Name: young hearts
to the songs we sung / to the times we shared / lasting moments, that can never be replaced / we pissed at fences / but this feels so long ago / i guess youth didn´t wait for us / we kept / looking for the time of our life / but years went by too fast / despite changing times / despite quiet hours / we shared our thoughts, our hopes, our dreams / now as the years have passed / i still recall these days / recall the nights / when chances / where within our reach / we´ve always thought, that time is on our side / i guess time proved us wrong

days go by, years go by, lives go by

i´m still looking for the time of my life / maybe the best i can do
Track Name: soulsucker
in every second, every minute, every hour / i see your face, you fucking coward / with every breath i take while you are near / lungs fill with dirt and nothing is clear / you had the chance to clarify / but as expected all i hear is just another lie / you had the chance to speak it out / speak it out / give it a name / speak it out / your false words, they spread like cancer / they poison both, body and soul / i´ll cut your fucking lies out of your throat / so you will never hurt / you walk at the abyss / you live at the abyss / you walk at the abyss / you live at the abyss
Track Name: losing ease
did i ever take you for granted / did i ever give you that sense / i would never take you for granted / i would never let you feel my absence
staring at the unmade bed / sort the thoughts in my head / why can´t we get along / for more than a breath / these arguments feel like dirt under my nails / but where to escape / when the rain prevails / this place once felt like home / but these days seem long gone / i´ve lost my faith / in better days / our thoughts feel tied / couldn´t break through this routine / our hearts lost their ease / maybe lost everything / so where´s the innocence / that once made us strong / maybe the spark got lost / maybe i am long gone
