1.
Life, a game where it's all do or die Finding the ways to survive In this forest of concrete and iron Nothing seems sacred to me Alive but still on my knees Afraid of the gun in my hand Confessing my sins to the dead But History is written in action Misery A flawless reaction of Apathy Death, a wish when you're holding your breath You're scared and you just wanna quit When it feels like you're all out of power Stand strong, remember to fight I know that I've been there before I used to live in denial So I set my heart racing faster Or else I would run out of time Cause History is written in action Misery A flawless reaction of Apathy

Clocks are ticking backwards, my life is on pause Have you ever really felt you're fighting for no cause Wandering away, just another gloomy day It's time to choose the life I wanna live And I got no will to pray, to anyone but me This is the road I'm taking, hopeless and careless I'm leaving everything behind to nowhere Sometimes you got to find yourself locked in a dark place To realize who you really are Looking for a meaning, the meaning of it all Questions but no answers, no point no ending goal Spirals going downwards, the feeling of a loss Just got to a wishing well without a coin to toss And I got no will to pray, to anyone but me This is the road I'm taking, hopeless and careless I'm leaving everything behind to nowhere Sometimes you got to find yourself locked in a dark place To realize who you really are Still going nowhere I keep my feet on the ground And as the clocks are ticking backwards I stay in place like a rock

Sandcastles 02:45
It's that time again When nightmares pay me a visit Is there a way to change them into dreams? It's all in my hands, grains of dust are in the air They are mine to shape at my own will I'm building my castles with water and sand Out of breath I'm moving forward I'm out of breath And nothing gained I'm building my castles with water and sand Out of breath I'm moving forward I'm out of breath Blended images and mixed emotions Present past and future just become one It's all in my hands, grains of dust are in the air They are mine to shape at my own will I'm building my castles with water and sand Out of breath I'm moving forward I'm out of breath And nothing gained I'm building my castles with water and sand Out of breath I'm moving forward I'm out of breath With water and sand,building my castles

So it comes down to fighting at the end of every day Striving for survival in this urban colony Bombs are falling, stress and pressure it's the same Fire and pain. It's a losing game We stand motionless in the sea We are not who we used to be Afraid of the dark that binds us Sharks surround us We're all alone So weak, there's no hiding from the incoming attack With no strength, no control to pick ourselves up And we're all losing our sleep just like before Our eyes are sore, we're at deaths door We stand motionless in the sea We are not who we used to be Afraid of the dark that binds us Sharks surround us We're all alone Crawling, we're crawling Give us the helping hand Screaming beneath the sand Falling, we're falling again Motionless

Feels there's something there that is not over Maybe because I had this dream Of a choice I couldn't make and a path I couldn't take Right before my eyes And the ship se sail without me And I'm standing once again on my own If I carry this weight, all by myself Will it matter at the end of the day? A million miles away! Now I know there's something there that is not over The air is clear and now I see Past mistakes just come and go My train of thought has lost its flow My face reveals my fear And the ship se sail without me And I'm standing once again on my own If I carry this weight, all by myself Will it matter at the end of the day? A million miles away! My hands are tied from time to time I got the ropes as a gift to myself to keep you mine I fake a smile from time to time My hands are tied from time to time I got the ropes as a gift to myself to keep you mine I fake a smile from time to time I'm fine

Mountains 02:46
Erasing my mind Creating new versions of me Every step of the way Evolving To a man stronger than me With my head to the sky Ready to face the rain With fear I see, dark clouds hovering over me Over the mountains we go Searching the source of this misery I won't sell my life to this world Open your eyes Reclaim what was taken from you the fate that they offer based on a lie There's a wall that we have to break through With our heads to the sky Ready to face the rain With fear I see, dark clouds hovering over me Over the mountains we go Searching the source of this misery I won't sell my life to this world This world is breeding the hate of the voiceless My life in trenches survives alone With fear I see, dark clouds hovering over me Over the mountains we go Searching the source of this misery I won't sell my life to this world

I'm stuck in my ways, I'm scared of change Well that's a part of me I guess I can't do much about it I can't do much about it Getting over the edge, words begin to collapse and I'm falling My life a chainlink fence It's time to tear it down And I'm calling for you I am who I am, I must be tiring you I'm sick of myself, it must be my age, I don't know You said two wrongs won't make it right I said I'd rather try Getting over the edge, Words begin to collapse and I'm falling My life a chainlink fence It's time to tear it down And I'm calling for you I am who I am, I know that I'm tiring you It must be my age and I know that I'm getting old and cold Or so I've been told You said two wrongs won't make it right I said I'd rather try Getting over the edge, words begin to collapse and I'm falling My life a chainlink fence It's time to tear it down And I'm calling for you I'm calling you

Look at the crack in the ocean A gaze at the burning sky An endless lie! I heard it before that nothing changes But now that is all I can dream Breathe in you can't As you fight with all that trash around you Comes a day in your life with nothing, With nothing to lose. The sound of an elegant silence A sign of missfortune, a hope Burned by your dreams I heard it before that nothing changes But now that is all I can dream Breathe in you can't As you fight with all that trash around you Comes a day in your life with nothing, With nothing to lose. The sky is endless Our lives so restricted Look at the crack in the ocean Breathe in you can't As you fight with all that trash around you Comes a day in your life with nothing, With nothing to lose.

The smile of a stranger is the fuel that feeds our fire a curse and a blessing to escape the ordinary Living our lives like a vague memory, we're lost in limbo Nothing comes for free It's the life that we choose to live and the fight that we choose to give and win Pain of an old wound, a twinge in the heart nothing can extinguish the flame burning deep inside. Caught up in a moment, our bonds are getting stronger as days keep passing by It's the life that we choose to live and the fight that we choose to give and win No tracks, no sun, no hope to lead our way Half drunk, half dead and all alone at the end of the day No tracks, no sun, no hope to lead our way Half drunk, half dead and all alone at the edge of the world
