Track Name: Let Her Dance
Let her dance
She’ll use the chance
Only then she’s one of them
It’s done before but I ignore
I know she’ll compete with the two hundred feet

I’m working hard but I get cold
I recall the things she told

Look at me
Turning ‘round
Face the facts that you’ll get the part
It’s too late to recuperate
I get the freaks running over my head

I search for her my good luck charm
But she just carries on

All those years I danced in my mind
All those years I danced in my mind

Wish
Get in line
Be in time
Her feet under
Flat black floor
Makes her move
Move faster
Go faster
And let her….
Track Name: 1234
One two three four
One two three four I want more
Chain me up you can’t ignore
Darling oh sweet leatherman
Don’t fear we’ll just disappear

Deep deep down the basement lures
I see you’re still a bit unsure
Drag you down just take a bite
Taste the pain but keep it quiet

One two three four

I need to get higher
I want you to show
My skin is on fire
I want you to know

One two three four close the door
Every year I wish for more
Visciousness I’ve got enough
Of painting nudes who’re playing rude

One two three four

I need to get higher
I want you to show
My skin is on fire
I want you to know

I need to get higher
I want you to show
My skin is on fire
I want you to know
Track Name: Higher
I was alone on my way
Except for the sun there was no one to play
I found him, I found it all
I was dazed by his rise and his fall

High, high, high

He got lost, he lost his way
On those days he had learned how to pray
I imagined a trail
But what I found was not meant for me

High, high, high

He goes higher, he goes higher, he goes higher

High, high, higher
High, high, higher
High, high, higher
Track Name: The Backwards Loop
The little girl inside of me
she’s telling who I want to be
Leave her alone she’ll disappear
I don’t wanna live in fear

It’s true she’ll make me go back today
soon I’m gonna feel the same
I’m free there is no need to explain
because I don’t care anyway

Tell me that we’ve got what it takes
When we renew everything
leave us alone leave us for dead
follow the careless one instead

It’s true she’ll make me go back today
soon I’m gonna feel the same
I’m free there is no need to explain
because I don’t care anyway

You needed to lead me to my mind
what’s wrong or right that’s what I decide
I belong on the longing side
I care about me tonight
Track Name: Pleasure Town
Walking in a pretty city
Where you can hide
Getting off on the pretty
Distressful night

Pleasure town
You’ve got me down
Pleasure town
You’ve got me down
Pleasure town

Getting off on the pretty
Why do you stay
No one’s getting all the riddles
I like to play

Pleasure town
You’ve got me down
Pleasure town
You’ve got me down
Pleasure town

Walking in a perfect city
Rich men can dive
Getting off on the pretty
Natural high

Fill your body with desire
Don’t be afraid
Come on closer to the window
She’s a good lay

Pleasure town
You’ve got me down
Pleasure town
You’ve got me down
Pleasure town
Track Name: Sad Dog
I’m in a change
To get insane
You sad sad dog
Bad time to fuck

I burn the bed
Go out my head
Your name erase
My victory took place

I see
You come tonight
Move out
This night is mine

You sad sad dog
You lost your luck
No cure this time
I told you I’m fine

I see
You come tonight
Move out
This night is mine
Track Name: Sick
HAD TO SEE IT COMING
BUT I WAS TOO LATE
YOU PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN
AND BROUGHT SHAME UPON ME

YOU KNOCKED ME DOWN
AND DRAGGED ME TO HELL
DON’T GIVE ME THAT CRAP
IT MEANS TROUBLE TO ME

I TRIED TO DO GOOD
I’M BETTER OF NOW

YOU, YOU MAKE ME SICK
YOU, YOU MAKE ME SICK

I WAITED FOR DAYS
I ENDURED LONG NIGHTS
YOU MADE ME FEEL LIKE
A CHEAP USED WHORE

I TELL THE WORLD
WHAT YOU WANT BUT
I GAVE YOU A CHANCE
TO MAKE ME FEEL GOOD

AH YOU, LEAVE ME ALONE
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME

YOU, YOU MAKE ME SICK
YOU, YOU MAKE ME SICK

YOU, YOU MAKE ME SICK
YOU, YOU MAKE ME SICK

YOU WANTED TO CALL
YOU WANTED TO MEET
I WANT YOU TO SEE
THE ANGER IN ME

I’LL MAKE IT YOUR WORST
NIGHTMARE IN DAYS
I TEAR YOU IN SIX PIECES
LIKE YOU DID WITH ME

I TRIED TO DO GOOD
I’M BETTER OF NOW

YOU, YOU MAKE ME SICK
YOU, YOU MAKE ME SICK
YOU, YOU MAKE ME SICK
YOU, YOU MAKE ME SICK
YOU MAKE ME SICK
YOU MAKE ME SICK
YOU MAKE ME SICK
Track Name: I See
If you wanna be alone and leave me secretly then you’ll see
Nothing makes sense till the day you decide to reveal

And I see
What can I feel and
I breathe your scent ‘round me
Won’t you see
You’ll have to see and
I feel a cold stare towards me

If you want to be unknown and
I wonder if what I see is still real
Nothing makes sense so I pinch myself till it bleeds

And I see
What can I see and
I feel and I breath and you’ll want me
to be
What can I be and I smile and I crave for more
Won’t you see
Back on full speed ahead and I want
to be seen

And I feel
What can I feel and you make my heart ache
Won’t you see
Why don’t we share your greed with the rest of my needs
And I see
What can I feel and you make my heart bleed
Why won’t you see
Track Name: Parasite
I’m dirty left over
I’ve wasted a perfect night
Gone now

You’re full of illusions
You came to twist my mind
Not now

You’re eyes so hypnotic
No way to refuse them
It’s too late

Damn you parasite
Sending the signs
Lovely dirty lair
Pure my desire
Damn you parasite
Twisted inside
Greedy is my….

Exotic neurotic
The world you had in mind
Is not mine

You dirty mind keeper
I gave you my damn life
It’s gone now

Damn you parasite
Sending the signs
Lovely dirty lair
Pure my desire
Damn you parasite
Twisted inside
Lovely dirty lair
Pure my desire

Damn you parasite
Twisted inside
Love me tonight
More than ever
Track Name: Inside/Outside
Let me in (you let me in)
I’ll break in (and smiled to me)
Look at me (you looked at me and said)
on my knees (the most beautiful words)

No one cared (I’ve always cared)
what we shared (all the things we shared)
We were young (I want to grow old)
for so long (with the man I hold)

I made a room so you could stay
Inside the room we’d lay for days
You couldn’t change so you put me out
Outside the room you hear me shout

Let me in (you let me in and said)
I’ve yet to begin (the good life will begin)
All those years (will never disappear)
I want them back (all those beautiful words)

No one steals (I’ll gave you everything I have)
what I desire (the warm room, and a bed)
What you make (my lonely heart fill’s up with love)
is what I break
Track Name: Silent Storm
Hold it tight
In my hand
Distorted view
Flows out my head

Let’s be real
Am I a fool
To believe
That this comes true

The colors grin
The pain comes through
It makes them shine
Crosses the line

It’s beautiful
I make it black
The good old days
They fall apart

I get rid
Of luxury
Return the care
That you gave me

Dear mother it’s me
Younger than I seem

As I can be
A restless nerve
Follow my hand
Distorted curve

You speak to me
Speak up loud
To explain
The colors hope

Silent storm
Runs through my veins
Track Name: If
If you were me, would you’ve done the same
I made a fire and waited

When I think about you, would you feel the same
I gave my love to you
I hold you tight, hold you night and day 

Hold you night and day

Dear mother, tell me I feel the same

When I wake up every morning

Oh father, learn me the daily deeds

Of an average grown up

Would you look back, when you’re down the road
That sparkling eyes of you
And if I’m gone, would you think about me
I’ll be the first to miss you

Dear mother, tell me I’ll be the same
When I’m growing older
Oh father, tell me about the days
When you were younger
Oh brother, I see she misunderstood
The way that you loved her
