Track Name: Ashes
I am choking
On the ashes of our fights
Heavy breathing
Fire's burning deep inside

The heat is rising
Blazing embers in the night
I’m truly seeking
But I see no peace in sight

Can we find a solution or wonder
Can we find a way to make it work
Can you tell me now
Can we find a way to grow stronger
Can we find a way to let it go
This is killing me

I wanna scream, shout, let it all out
Take another chance one last time
Before it’s too late I extend my hand to you
Scream, shout, let it all out
Take another chance one last time
Before it’s too late I extend my hand to you

The words you’re preaching
They won’t get you anywhere
Mister know-it-all
Should compromise before he falls

Can we find a solution or wonder
Can we find a way to make it work
Can we find a way to grow stronger
Can we find a way to let it go
This is killing me

I wanna scream, shout, let it all out
Take another chance one last time
Before it’s too late I extend my hand to you
Scream, shout, let it all out
Take another chance one last time
Before it’s too late I extend my hand to you

Coming deep from depths inside
Secrets I kept off your sight
That I can no longer hide

Worn out by your lows and highs
I gave it all up to my pride
But you’re never satisfied

Scream, shout, let it all out
Take another chance
Don’t you wanna try it again

I wanna scream, shout, let it all out
Take another chance one last time
Before it’s too late I extend my hand to you
Scream, shout, let it all out
Take another chance one last time
Before it’s too late I extend my hand to you
Track Name: Parachute
Open up the Jellyfish, this is an emergency
We’re crashing down into the walls of eternity
We’re falling faster than the world has ever seen
Time is running out

I think we have to face that we might not make it after all
We’re spiraling down into this deep never ending fall
We’ve reached the point of terminal velocity
And I’m not backing out

20.000 feet up in the air
Falling faster, you don’t seem to care
I don’t wanna be the one to go
Don’t wanna crash down below

Give me my parachute
I have to cut you loose
To save my own skin
I’m not gonna win holding on to you

I need my parachute
Baby just call it truce
I’m loving this eternal bliss
But I won’t be crashing down

Why can’t you see that this ain’t getting us anywhere?
All the times you said that you cared but you weren’t there
Can you let me go cause this is to much to bare
I am freaking out!

20.000 feet up in the air
Falling faster, you don’t seem to care
I don’t wanna be the one to go
Don’t wanna crash down below

Give me my parachute
I have to cut you loose
To save my own skin
I’m not gonna win holding on to you

I need my parachute
Baby just call it truce
I’m loving this eternal bliss
But I won’t be crashing down

Soaring, flying
We’re crashing down

Give me my parachute
I have to cut you loose
To save my own skin
I’m not gonna win holding on to you

I need my parachute
Baby just call it truce
I’m loving this eternal bliss
But I won’t be crashing down
Track Name: Irresistible
You are so irresistible
Your eyes, so thrilling they’re biblical
I want a taste of your mystery

You, me, it’s unavoidable
White flag, surrender and loose it all
Sinful, we’re meant to go out in flames

I will shatter to pieces when you drop me on the floor
Broken hearted, begging for more

I can feel it burning from inside
There is danger in this crime
It sends me high above the skies
Baby I’m on fire
Like an explosion of my heart
You’re tearing me apart
You, you just set me on fire

Tell me, what are we supposed to be?
Wondering if it’s for pleasure or misery
That my heart skipped a beat because of you

I will shatter to pieces when you drop me on the floor
Broken hearted, begging for more

I can feel it burning from inside
There is danger in this crime
It sends me high above the skies
Baby I’m on fire
Like an explosion of my heart
You’re tearing me apart
You, you just set me on fire
Track Name: Johnny Boy
Johnny Johnny boy, my sweet little one
Where are you going with your shiny gun
You think that it's funny, you think that it’s fair
You're doing your duty by shaving your head
This time it's not just a game, it's the only life you've got

Johnny Johnny boy, Listen to me well
You're gonna lose your soul in the mist of rage and hell
Fighting for a land that's got no peace to sell
You'll be a soldier without a cause, A ghost within a shell

Don't turn into a war machine my boy
The only good reason to fall is to fall in…
Don't turn into a war machine my boy
The only good reason to fall is to fall in…

Johnny Johnny boy, it's easy for me to tell
Rich men in the white house do not care if you survive
They'll make you a hero once stuck in your coffin
Life count on zero, forgiven your sins
But this time it's not just a game, it's the only life you've got

Don't turn into a war machine my boy
The only good reason to fall is to fall in…
Don't turn into a war machine my boy
The only good reason to fall is to fall in…

Johnny Johnny boy, You're so sweet and kind
If you wanna be a toy I'll be your frontline
I'm dying just to think of you on the battlefield
And I'll give anything for you to stand by me

Don't turn into a war machine my boy
The only good reason to fall is to fall in…
Don't turn into a war machine my boy
The only good reason to fall is to fall in LOVE
The only good reason to fall is to fall in LOVE
Track Name: Bitter & Blue
Long lost, bitter and blue
That's how I was when I first met you
A poor soul wandering alone
Down by the riverside where hearts drown like stones
You sung words of relief
Mesmerizing melodies hypnotizing me

Bruised, red, purple & blue
Those were the colors of the only love I knew
Tainted with shame, mistrust and pain
Such a sinful addiction before I met you
But when you sing songs, words of relief
Mesmerizing lullabies put me back to sleep

And my heart dances joyful to your beat
Free from pain, away from this world of grief
Let it rain, it will burn
‘Cause it no longer cares when I'm with you

And my heart dances joyful to your beat
Free from pain, away from this world of grief
Let it rain, it will burn
‘Cause it no longer cares when I'm with you

Long lost, bitter and blue
That's how I was when I first met you
Track Name: My Neighbour Is A Serial Killer
I need you to sit down, take time and listen to me
I’m feeling tense, I’m nervous and I can’t get to sleep
‘Cause when the sun is setting down
It sends me back to the scene

It was a late night, dark moon, I could barely see
But I am sure it was him walking up the alley
With a shovel and a plastic bag
Blood red shimmers to the moonlight

Shivers down my spine
I’m too young to die

‘Cause I am telling you
There’s something wrong with my left door neighbour
Listen to me it’s true
My left door neighbour is a....

He’s got the looks, conversation and likes anatomy
He is a quiet forty year old educated dandy
But did you see him jump above your wall
Hiding behind the trees

Sneaking up to find another victim again
He’s in a rush, looking for a way to be entertained
To show you tricks and shiny tools
Ready to seal your doom

Shivers down my spine
I’m too young to die

‘Cause I am telling you
There’s something wrong with my left door neighbour
Listen to me, it’s true
I think that I just spotted the error
Yeah, I am telling you
I think I know what the guy is up to
I am telling you
My left door neighbor is a serial killer

He’s coming after, coming after, coming after me
He’s coming after, coming after, coming after me
He’s coming after, coming after, coming after me
He’s coming after, coming after, coming after me

‘Cause I am telling you
There’s something wrong with my left door neighbour
Listen to me, it’s true
I think that I just spotted the error
Yeah, I am telling you
I think I know what the guy is up to
I am telling you
My left door neighbor is a serial killer
Track Name: Innocent
The bitter taste in my mouth is stronger than expected
I must admit my friend
The disappointment that you caused
It haunts me like a ghost
It tears my heart and soul
If only I had known
I never would have put my trust in your clumsy hands

You pretend you’re innocent
But you tried to bring me down
You pretend you’re innocent
That you fake, simulate when I need to defend who I am

Look at us, staring in each other‘s eyes
No word left to speak
Who’s the fool? Who’s to blame?
I don’t wonder anymore, no

You pretend you’re innocent
But you tried to bring me down
You pretend you’re innocent
That you fake, simulate when I need to defend who I am

From my side of the bridge you’ve burned
Let me tell you one last thing
You used your friend as excuses
For your mistakes and weaknesses
You played the game of ignorance
But soon enough your lies will break like glass

You pretend you’re innocent
But you tried to bring me down
You pretend you’re innocent
That you fake, simulate when I need to defend who I am
You pretend you’re innocent
That you fake, simulate when I need to defend that I am INNOCENT
Track Name: Wake Up
Down in your fading memories
You’ll drown in the rain that washed away your dreams
Those are flooded and far long gone
Drifting away, you’re so alone
Isn’t it time to make a change?

So, are you happy? Are you satisfied?
Locked up in your self demise
So terrified to take the stake
Where you lay down, in the bed you made
Now face the truth and take the stand

Come one, come on, come on
The light is gone, bring it back home
It’s a new dawn, a new chance, a new day

You gotta wake up, get up, give it a try
Stand up, give in without asking why, without asking why
You gotta wake up, get up, give it a try
Stand up, give in without asking why, without asking why

See, well I’ve been there and I know how you feel
Only time will heal your wounds
So let me help give it a rest
Leave the burden of the past behind
You got to let it go

Come one, come on, come on
The light is gone, bring it back home
It’s a new dawn, a new chance, a new day

You gotta wake up, get up, give it a try
Stand up, give in without asking why, without asking why
You gotta wake up, get up, give it a try
Stand up, give in without asking why, without asking why

You gotta wake up, stand up, without asking why
You gotta wake up, stand up, without asking why

You gotta wake up, get up, give it a try
Stand up, give in without asking why, without asking why
You gotta wake up, get up, give it a try
Stand up, give in without asking why, without asking why
Track Name: Get Out
So I don’t know what to say
But you don’t listen anyway
Do you think you’ve got the time
I need to get this off my mind
A thing I know for sure is
There’s a lot that I miss
And I just wanna get out

I kept on running back to you
‘Cause I did not know what to do
Do you mind me giving up
‘Cause I’m scared to ask what’s up
Leaving now it seems too much
Taking care of you and such
Makes me just wanna get out

I want you out, out, out, out of my life
I’ve got nothing left to give ‘cause you leave me dry
Out, out, out, out of my life
It’s the only way for me to survive

I’m sick and tired of this mess
It’s clear that you and me just don’t make sense
I’m taking back the rest of me
Making your name history
I free myself from your web
Let it all fall to shreds
I am planning my escape

I want you out, out, out, out of my life
I’ve got nothing left to give ‘cause you leave me dry, leave me dry
Out, out, out, out of my life
It’s the only way for me to survive

Then again, then again, I’m having doubts again my friend
I think I can, yes I can, I can try it once again
Know it’s hard on my part
Well I don’t know how to play my cards
But maybe I can
Then again
I want you out, out, out, out of my life
I’m not sure of what I need
But you know, it’s my fucking life

I want you out, out, out, out of my life
I’ve got nothing left to give ‘cause you leave me dry, leave me dry
Out, out, out, out of my life
It’s the only way
Now I draw the line
Track Name: Whatever Happens
I see your smiles are slowly fading
And you dry up tears from yesterday
I wish that I could help you see that I’m not leaving
That I’ll always hold you close

Let me take you away from pain and sorrow
Let me kiss you like there’s no tomorrow

I thought I should let you know
That trees will keep on growing
And the wind will keep on blowing without me
I need to know you’ll be alright
We both know I will loose this fight
But whatever happens
I’ll be here
You know I’ll be here

It might have been over yesterday
As the cold cold winter slowly crept in on us
But your sorrow is a waste of time
Your broken heart won’t be my crime
So just let go now

Let me take you away from pain and sorrow
Let me kiss you like there’s no tomorrow

I thought I should let you know
That trees will keep on growing
And the wind will keep on blowing without me
I need to know you’ll be alright
We both know I will loose this fight
But whatever happens
I’ll be here
I’ll be here

Whatever happens
Whatever happens
I’ll be here
