Past / Simple Check the days before the break, one should never really care that much Check the painkillers, one should never really care that much Whatever we say One moment and the next It's here and somewhere else Should let it go, should make it go away Three pillows on the bed There is no face It's past / simple or so they say Checked the days before the break, one never really cared that much Checked the painkillers, one never really cared that much Whatever we said One moment and the next Was here and somewhere else Should let it go, should make go away Picture yourself in broad daylight, say the name and let out a very long sigh Then picture yourself in the dark and unravel how come you just can't stop that tide

MARGINS Let's repeat that little lie first, and then be scared of heights Orchestrating your fate as if you always knew it just belonged to the past... Dreams of better days never come true but keep you awake No relief in the answers that are always true; oh, better days! I was writing in the margins of the last pages of love I was writing in the margins of the last pages of hope And because I knew nothing then of what was yet to come I was struggling with a plain distress throwing only symmetry my way Let's reveal that little life first and then be scared of lights You cast it away because you always knew it was never meant to last A million words to spit, they're against you Figure out the question A million words to spit, they're all for you Figure out the question Let's just find out who we are Pay attention! Dreams of better days never come true; to better days!

February Cigarettes are burning in grey swirls of hope An ashtray full of all your sins, you’ve got to learn to cope There’s a black box recorder on, there’s a black box recorder on The last voice in the crash was Stubbs’ growling ‘Springtime’; the beauty of a broken glass. So we just danced and then we dimmed the lights until February’s blackout, there was beauty in the dark and we said nothing. Another drink to a better fate, a bad taste in the mouth only time can dispel, or that’s what they say. There’s a black box recorder on, there’s a black box recorder on.

A Quiet Anarchy Somewhere under my skin I don’t have to try I’m not falling in love I’m falling in line with what we used to live … Fulfilment guaranteed… Put some make-up on and then read out the scene Not really sure what it means to me What we used to live … Fulfilment guaranteed… The truth of a liar is a dream and then a fall A bitter illusion that always drags you down Pain is a way to remember A simple word can be a killer Shading all the fears that have been kept inside Not falling in love but falling and falling What we used to live ...Fulfilment guaranteed Use your heart, do whatever you want A quiet anarchy, no solid ground Use your heart, do whatever you want, oh dear We’ve never known anyone

Impossible Colours A blue pen on the table A broken chair that used to be a throne Music playing in the street, I’m not so sure I like it. Red curtains in the room I’m wondering if I should ever find an ending to the song Find an ending to the song Reason in those biased decisions Is like certainty for the hardest equation A vain attempt at self-confidence That barely disguises the stake and the moment How pretentious, how exciting, how deceiving, how deceiving. There was a dream and a hope Too close to the bone There was an urge for freedom Maybe too close to the bone I thought there would be colours, it was a monochrome We’re impossible colours, a monochrome So say it! I’m breaking away, I’m falling away but I’m born at last. Run away, I’m falling away but I’m born at last Run away, I’m falling away, I’ll be done at last

A Tired Hand The beauty of the fall The perspective of our souls Somewhere in my deepest seas I meant to reconcile the fury and the calm The impossible dream of a sunny August and a living Marilyn The ugly of the fault Another remorse overdose That noise in my Inner ear It just meant to reconcile my desires and my pride The impossible dream of a perfect crime in a perfect scene Hold my hand, forever let it go My contradictions your pain, I know A mouth full of regret A tired hand that cannot help A mind never forgets But a broken heart begs A mouth full of secrets A tired hand that cannot help The beginning and the end Of a crazy Russian roulette The innocence of dawn Till the sun starts shining on The beautiful disasters I've unfolded That loud silence in your eyes And all those crazy fears at night I’ll practice till my lips lie, my lips lie It’s not the struggle of a lifetime It’s not broken, it’s alive, right ? It’s not the struggle of a lifetime It’s not broken, it’s alive now Hold my hand, forever let it go My contradictions, your pain, I know

Suspension of Disbelief Is black a colour or a shade in the cool light of a summer day? Suspend your own disbelief, let yourself go Suspension of disbelief, her lips kiss yours What would a lover write next? Turn the page now What if that didn’t make sense? It’s time to let die! We’ve somehow reached the bottom line And your conclusion isn’t mine I should have told you a minute ago Three days, two nights 12 years to find out who we are No changes in daylight Beware and see how the land lies Words and passion and doubts are revelling in the failure of it all. Wrong, wrong, everything goes wrong, everything goes wrong, the end of the storyline.

The Ghost in the Machine What is it that turned me into this older man ? Too many glasses of this Bordeaux wine ? Too many hours playing those crappy tunes, whining about this fucking solitude ? I’m holding on to nothing, can’t you see the ghost in the machine ? I’m holding on to nothing, can’t you see ? It controls everything, a fucking routine. I thought that I could live my desires, I thought that I could be who I wanted to be. I wave my past goodbye and turn the other way. Looking back in silence, I know I will someday. So I face the truth like I’ve always done, this bitter division will never stop

Inner Dialogue Take off your coat and sit on the couch, Then listen to the sound of your voice that lingers on and on The portrait on the wall is a tell tale of your soul Please, get your shit together You used to be better than that Your band was better in the past Oh, so many words come to my mind Let’s finish and our drinks and part ways I don’t care about that damn six-month shower of destiny I don’t care about the way you drink and you drink and you drink I don’t care about the way you slip and you live and your try to forget I don’t care about you always repeating things to my face.

I Live In A Scottish Castle I gather words that sound the same, I write the stories in my head I'm sleeping all through the day, I wallow in lies and grey, I'm leaving (leaving) a long-term r.... In other words, I'll sound the same, can't stand the pictures in my head I'm aching all through the day, I spit all my lies and grey, I'm leaving (leaving) a long-term r... I drank all my pain in the summer I lived up to my sadness in the fall I cannot help but feel my life was long ago I should live in a Scottish castle You'd be the queen; I'd be the ghost I live in a Scottish castle I'm no king at all I drink whiskies that taste the same, the rain is beating on my face I'm working all through the day, I soak all my lies in grey, I'm leaving (leaving) a long-term r... With other drinks, it'll taste the same, can't stand the lovers in my bed I'm aching all through the day, I spit all my lies and grey, I'm leaving (leaving) a long-term r... The last words will sound the same, can't stand the pictures in my head I'm aching all through the day, I spit all my lies and grey, I'm leaving (leaving) a long-term r... The last drink will taste the same, can't stand the lovers in my bed I'm aching all through the day, I spit all my lies and grey, spit all my lies and grey. Wake me up When the rain just stops And I’ll stand trial Truth be told, I think I always knew what was not meant to happen between me and you Truth be told, I think you always knew what was not meant to happen between me and you

Coup de Grâce Breathe in, breathe out Clench your teeth, force a smile As if you were the one in charge of your own life Breathe in, breathe out Clench your teeth, force a smile Coup de grâce False pretences, clear-eyed A masquerade with no lies Out of sight, out of mind Making choices, hitting hard, What a poor line!

Empirical Dismay What song was playing in the midst of battle, in the midst of fire? What common good, what freedom for another century or two? Who admires and relates? Who aspires or tolerates? Human nature in portraits, so absurd alright! So let’s believe in nothing, for either way we’re going to start a war. Who claims the moral ground? The monster or the saint? Who claims the moral ground? The sword or the pen? Let’s write on every page, empirical dismay. All hail the ghost of humaneness Let’s fight for every page, empirical courage. All hail the fire and the rage.
