Track Name: Fires
we are shipwrecked
we light fires
fires to be visible

transparent
bare to the soul
we lure the beasts
oh, the young are brave

we are so alone
with the monsters we hide
start to feed them
'cause we're so afraid

they grow, they grow
they grow beyond us
oh no! they devour us
and take our place
Track Name: Retry
retry
the first step is to fall
before you fly

now we are here
standing on the brink
you know all what's behind
and now you see nothing

I know you want to open
your wings to fly
once they were broken
and you spread your sadness around

retry, retry
the first step is to fall
before you fly
Track Name: Darkness
so you’ll lead me through
all the corridors
show me all the rooms
the treasures unnumbered
then close me in a cell
how will I love you there

with the memory of your smile
how will I love you there

so I feed your hopelessness
with doubts and fears of mine
I embrace the darkness
like a friend, it's fine
will I love you there
with the memory of your smile
will I love you there

a short trip into happiness
a string of good days gone
rolling away, like pearls from a chain
never to find them again
I embrace the darkness
like a friend, it's fine
I embrace the darkness
Track Name: Freer
if I could find a wider path
if I could take a deeper breath
if I could love less
I'd feel freer

if I could see further
if I could forgive easier
if I could die without fear
I'd feel freer

freer
freer

if I could have a longer day
if I could do it your way
if I could trust in what you say
I'd feel freer

my dreams if I could throw
my love if I could let go
if I could nod when you say no
I'd feel freer

carrying some weight on my back
I should turn for facing that
always behind at the rear
always something to veneer
I can't see I'd like to watch
I can't get I'd want too much
something I can never share
but me I always have to wear

freer
freer
freer
freer
Track Name: Trapped
what is your love
a word
dropped and broken glass
I'm trapped in hope

was this a game
who did you fight
can you press play again
I'm trapped in pride

don't you just sit there in silence

I'm watching my sun
falling in a black hole
I'm seeing it forever falling
I'm trapped in time
trapped in time
I'm trapped in time
I'm trapped

alone with my screams
dancing shadows rise
I'm trapped in me

I'm watching my sun
falling in a black hole
I'm seeing it forever falling
I'm trapped in time
trapped in time
I'm trapped in time
I'm trapped
Track Name: Heart to Weigh
I've fallen, I've fallen on the ground
the ceiling is one bright screen of my fears

I'm lying like a wounded animal
waiting for the pain to cease

I'm mourning myself, wondering
if they cut my heart out, to weigh it

They won't see how frail it was, anyway
filled with so much love and hate

I've fallen, I've fallen on the ground
the ceiling is one bright screen of my fears

The sun, as a comfort
drops some rays on me
