Track Name: Revolution
I bring the sacrifices
To protect the fire from the wind
I run as fast as I can
And still we have an axe to grind

But now’s the right time
Exactly the right time
Now it’s the right time

To let it go
When you wake up with the feeling that you’re falling down
Let it go

I’m in three places at the same time
Holding the wheel and answering the phone
In a hurry to come home soon
What do you need? Just gimme a hint

But now is the right time
Exactly the right time
Now it’s the right time

To let it go
Come back to the ground and let yourself go
Let it go

To turn off all devices
Give the finger to my brain
Forget the pain and start the healing
And accept what it brings

Now’s the right time
Exactly the right time
Now it’s the right time

To let it go
To feel the flow
Cos I wanna be free
And I wanna go
Cos we never know
What will let us grow
So now let it go
Track Name: Undercover
Hidden places
Games with twisted rules
Turning you on, beautiful
When you say
You wanna hide in me
The sound of your voice is so full

Where did we go?
Where do we go?

The world tonight
Is not the same cause you and I
We're undercover
For a while
And we don't need
Any other tricks for now
We're undercover
Shining through the night

The taste, so mild
Staying in my mouth
All the rest I want to leave behind
Is this the art of being what we really are?
Is it something we hope to find?

Where do we go?
Where do we want to go?

The world tonight Is not the same cause you and I
We're undercover
For a while
And we don't need
Any other tricks for now
We're Undercover
Staying up all night
Track Name: All Alone
I’m climbing up the ivy-hidden walls
My nest is soft enough in case I fall
You can love me
And not give up on giving
You can dope me
But don’t expect me to

Share your dreams
No, you dream them on your own
If you’re down and low
- Why don’t you move along?

You’re dancing tricky dances every single night
Baby I’m sorry but I don’t mind
You can heal me
And show me all your lust
You can love me (but)
You’re selfish if you do

We are finally feeling all alone
Is that the only way to move along?
We are finally feeling all alone
But that is the only way to move along
Track Name: Addicted
You‘re dancing with me
And the lines begin to blur
I’m messed up for a while
But then I know for sure
That I won’t ever meet you again
And the blood is circling in my veins
And I feel free
And I feel no pain

We all, we’re looking for what is wrong
And we’re addicted
Come on, bring it on
We all, we’re looking for what is wrong
In a shadow we are strong

Another place
And other guys to meet
I like you a lot
And your kisses and the heat
If you hold me tight tonight
We will know that it’s all right
And it’s oh so good
To feel alive

We all, we’re looking for what is wrong
And we’re addicted
We all, we’re looking for what is wrong
In a sorrow we are strong
Track Name: Could It Be Over
You have lost
But you didn’t know that you were playing
The roar of the crowds
(Is) celebrating those who are winning

What is the cost
Of the words that you were saying?
Stuck up and proud
Never showing any doubts

Oh no
Could it be over?
Humiliated and
Pushed into to a corner
Now where do you belong?
When this game is over?
Oh no
Could it be over

You have lost
No matter how hard you have tried
Shouting out loud
Doesn’t help, you need to hide

To hide
To find a safe place
Oh no
Could it be over?
Now you lose your mind
You feel fifty years older
And where do you belong
When this game is over?
Oh no
Could it be over

You will never be the same again
Is this a new start or is it the end?
No one is around to ease the pain
You will never be the same again
Track Name: Spotlight
I’ve gotta hide from your light
When you dazzle and when you shine
You make rainbows light up brighter than ever

You’ve gotta find me, I’m not here
You want to swim cos the water’s clear
Someone is laughing and shouting go and get her

You are the spotlight

I wanna forget and walk the line
Stories about you are all around
You’d burn me sooner or later

I’ve gotta leave now, disappear
You’re gonna get me; I know it’s near
Put out the fire, it seems to be better
You are the spotlight

It is so hard to take
Why is it so hard to take your love forever?
Track Name: So I Say
I woke up one minute ago
Where is my mind?
And where’s my phone?
And where the fuck am I now?
Did I get to this place alone?
My brain’s in a thousand pieces like a broken mirror on the floor

Why did you call me sixteen times?
Last time I saw you I had so much fun and it was easy
Now can you read between the lines?
When someone’s desperate they do desperate things and much much more

And your text says
Baby what is it good for?

So I say
I’m not gonna stay now
So I say
I’m not going to wait
So I say
Go find your way now
So I say
Seize the day

So you think this is what I want?
Do you believe that it was me who chose a life in chaos?
Would you say I deserve the taunting?
Let’s forget what’s in the past, tomorrow is a day away now

Anyway, who knows
What is it all good for?

So I say
I’m not gonna stay now
So I say
I’m not going to wait
So I say
Go find your way now
So I say
Seize the day
Track Name: Surprise
I know you’re hunting
When you’re looking at me
Circling, stalking
Like a shark in the sea
You wanna be a winner
But so do I
What we both need now
Is just a little surprise

Show me something
I wanna feel free
There’s nothing
I won’t believe
And then I know your secrets
And you know mine
Surprises stop us going mad
Track Name: Acronyms
I don’t mind if you’re mad
I just hate that you forget
What’s been said
And what we felt
And how we shone
When we first met

I couldn’t see your hesitation
And all the mess you always bring here
With you

I don’t care if you’re sad
I just don’t want to regret
All that has been done
Desire fed
It’s just my hunger that still remains

Was I just your entertainment?
And what has always made me come back to you?
Track Name: Dreams
It was years ago
And it all had flown
It came to me somehow
And it was all I needed at the time
I felt lost in you
Melted down
I wish I knew how you
Made me feel high and made me cry

Now it’s gone
All I’ve got

To be honest now
I couldn’t say it aloud
But for a pretty long, long time
I felt lost in a crowd
Oh I miss the way
You were touching me
And the way you looked in my eyes
When I asked you to hold me tight

Now it’s gone
All I’ve got now

Are the dreams about you
They should stop but they’re coming
Dreams about you
They should stop but they keep coming back
Track Name: Be Kind
The black is back
After a flash of light
Chaos wins
But it’s very tight
You want to run
But you’re paralyzed

You only wait
No you don’t bite
You won’t scream
No scandal girl
After all
You’ve been socialized

You won’t fight
It’s nothing you can’t stand
Like many times before
You‘re gonna use it all

Be kind
To the darkness in your soul
Sometimes
It can make you move

The darkness makes marks
In your past
You’re not first
And you’re not last
You can’t see
What made you feel all right

So you are staring
At the clouds
You breathe in
And you breathe out
After all
You’ve been socialized

You cannot fight
Something that’s your part
Like many times before
You’ll have to use your brain

Be kind
To the darkness in your soul
Sometimes
It can make you move
