I have come out here tonight With a quest to keep things in line No more than a drink or two Cause in the morning I got things to do I open my eyes to a glimmer of light Coming through where the blind has been left up I turn off the noise from my second alarm Getting up to the beat of my head All night, king of the floor Just wanting more, now confidence is sore Hiding behind a cold wall The need comes on to let everything go I open my eyes to a glimmer of light Coming through where the blind has been left up I turn off the noise from my second alarm Getting up to the beat of my head Say the word and off we go Entering too familiar places I`m everything I want and more But I have worn too many faces Soon to be a stranger to myself Falling back in line Pretend I´m fine, careful not to stand out Dying to feel alive But for now I keep my distance to everyone around I open my eyes to a glimmer of light Coming through where the blind has been left up I turn off the noise from my second alarm Getting up to the beat of my head Say the word and off we go Entering too familiar places I`m everything I want and more But I have worn too many faces Soon to be a stranger Soon to be a stranger to myself

Higher 03:02
Every way I twist and turn to make it right I end up with a head filled with doubt Where my hopes and my dream are unable to come true Been given every trick in the book Forgotten any lesson I´ve been taught I am soon to be seen as somewhat of a joke Higher and higher and higher Higher then we´ve ever been before Painted up a picture in my head Before I know I´ve spent most of the day Somewhere distant from here working issues that ain´t there Have you ever felt like life slips through your hands A struggle for control, to take a stand To make time here worth while, she said take a look around Higher and higher and higher Higher then we´ve ever been before It´s taken me so long to get it right But in this light Able to breathe out I would do it all over again To reach this hight

Yeah you see me walking down your street and you surely don’t know what it means im gonna show you I gotta show you I don’t say that Im your chosen one But I do know how to sing this song Because I wrote it You wrote it to yeah It’s the sparkling sun It´s the sparkling sun No you don’t know what I am all about It’s the heat that I´m carrying and it’s a lot Im gonna tell you I gotta tell you

Going Home 04:03
Look at the state of you Trying to act so cool Playing us as your fools I see right through you Thoughts so insecure Hidden behind a bright shining armour Down the drink lets go home You shouldn´t be on your own You´re far to sweet to be all alone Stay the night if you want I´ll spend it all in your company I`m far to good to be here alone I hear your words They start to ware me down Leaving me vulnerable to your charm Come to me I feel how I haul you in I know that you will win in the end Down the drink lets go home You shouldn´t be on your own You´re far to sweet to be all alone Stay the night if you want I´ll spend it all in your company You´re far to good to be here alone We dance around each other With steps rehearsed to perfection From our years of experience Look at the state of you Everything you say or do has me acting like fool Down the drink lets stay home You shouldn´t be on your own You´re far to sweet to be all alone Stay the night if you want I´ll spend it all in your company I´m far to good to be here alone I´m far to good to be alone

Violet Haze 03:52
Wintertime, spring time, summertime I guess then we fall Dragonfly caught inside a magic box Inside a jelly jar Peppermint and candy Will come to us real handy when we starve Go with the wind and smile with a grin Sign your name in colours of rain When you don’t like the way things go When you don’t like the way things go When you twist and turn all day When you´ve lost your track and all way What about me and my way What about him Will you let him stay? Satellite of silver spoons You lit it up and fill my room The sweetest taste upon your tongue Now you know I was the one Peppermint and candy Will come to us real handy when we starve Go with the wind and smile with a grin You´re surrounded by Violet Haze When you don’t like the way things go When you don’t like the way things go When you twist and turn all day When you´ve lost your track and all way What about me and my way What about him Will you let him stay?

I follow you around From room to room, stuck to your side To make each moment count To store your image in my mind for the next few nights I watch you while you´re sleeping You seem so at peace With every breath you take You make me want to stay awake for a little bit more Keep me close at heart I´ll leave but never go far Days will fly, you´ll see I´ll be home sooner than you think No words are needed to be spoken You know me better than I do myself You follow me around From room to room I hear the sound Of your voice in my head A sarky comment makes me giggle to myself Keep me close at heart I´ll leave but never go far Days will fly, you´ll see I´ll be home sooner than you think No words could tell you how I´m feeling But you know me better than I do myself

Down 04:09
Black and white, a moody mind to tame Clearing dust, soon to make a fuss Roaming free, wont walk no lead indeed Sleepy eyes opens wide to plead Down where we are Down where we are Down where we are She´s the leader of our destruction Primadonna hiding round the corner Lashing out at those who pass her by In your face the perfect place to sprawl about Taking turns as she purrs her heart out Down where we are Down where we are Down where we are She´s the leader of our destruction

Catching a ride from point A to C Never mind our speed Give me a fortune and I will succeed I will bow to my needs We will be kings and queens From behind our screens We will view our eyes to sleep Cradled from knowing that we wont miss a thing The faster we go the harder it is to control Marching along with squares in our eyes Minds drawn to the light I will stay connected, keep track of my domain Where no thought is in vain We will be kings and queens From behind our screens We will view our eyes to sleep Cradled by knowing that we wont miss out The faster we go the harder it is to control I take my seat, put up my feet Scratching any surface within my reach Peace and quite will stress me out Will turn me into a cat on a hot tin roof Catching a ride from point A to Z Barely pausing to breathe We will be kings and queens From behind our screens We will view our eyes to sleep Cradled by the comfort of knowing we wont miss out The faster we go the harder it is to control

World 03:47
Long before you were born Were they waiting for a boy Little one that will glow In heavy times for them to know That the world Keeps on turning And the smiles In your eyes burning Set sail now Sail right To the sunny side of life Wear your shoelaces free At the bottom of the sea Under pink skies of fate Did they bring you much too late That the world Keeps on turning And the smiles In your eyes burning Set sail now Sail right To the sunny side of life

In a house of our own, heaven would be In a house of our own, just you and me In a house of our own, we wouldn´t have to keep things quiet In a house of our own, we would set our own rules In a house of our own, live life as we choose In a house of our own, leaving our old ways behind us Where we could sleep till late In the mess we´ve made with no worries Stuffing our faces full with take aways while in rags Living our lives for the day In a house of our own, our friends come around In a house of our own, we´d turn up the sound In a house of our own, our neighbours can shout best they wanted In a house of our own, we´d party till dawn In a house of our own, pass out on the lawn In a house of our own, this will be our new beginning Where we could sleep till late In the mess we´ve made with no worries Stuffing our faces full with take aways while in rags Living our lives for the day We wouldnt feel, wouldnt feel alone We wouldnt feel, wouldnt feel alone In a house of our own, our young´s have flown out In a house of our own, busy living their lives In a house of our own, struggling with our new found freedom Walking through all this space With heavy heads filled with worries Wondering what to do now there´s no one moaning at you Were getting through another day

Once 04:11
Once a riddle left to solve A mystery to unfold The centre of my world Once a song inside my head My final thought in bed The beginning of my day It´s been a long time passing I´ve failed to wisen up Faught with my all to stay on track With a river to hold back All senses left in shock Overflowing with regrets Lots spoken, nothing said Paid in the years I´ve bled A rocky search to come across An image never lost An echo from the past It´s been a long time passing I fail to wisen up With every new day thoughts will pull me back in time let feelings shine on through I step outside this shell created round me Leave the door wide open for you to come on through for you to come on through Once a riddle left to solve A mystery to unfold The centre of my world Once a song inside my head My final thought in bed The beginning of my day
