Track Name: Oh the moon
​It took twenty years to find out
I lost my way to your heart
Took plenty tears to cry out
We have grown apart
It was hard for me to write this song
Will be hard for you to sing along
Sounds like howling at the moon
Oh the moon

Milk breast, the pillow chest
Mothers' milk did taste the best
Mothers are no ordinary women
They are sacred, they are blessed
Once you'll find out she's only human too
It's scary to know she could be that cruel
Feels like howling at the moon
Oh the moon

Thought for sure she knew before
In glazed houses never slam the door

Image of my archetype
Broken after her suicide
Intimacy was eternal bliss
Now it's just a Judas kiss
Remain in dept and maintain her pride
Only talk about the sunny side
While I'm still howling at the moon
​Oh the moon

Track Name: World keeps turning
World keeps turning

She parked in front his window
Like a killer on the scene
She parked in front his window
Like a killer on the scene
Yeah, the whole world is a wildernis
He had only seen on t.v. screens
She knocked upon his window
He didn't hear with the t.v. on
She knocked upon his window
​He didn't hear with the t.v. on
He saw the world turning and turning
But never seen what was really going on

World keeps on turning
I hope it don't turn bad on you

Now, the windows start to tremble
As she drove into the wild
Oh man, the windows start to tremble
As she drove into the wild
She knew the world would keep on turning
Said: "Good luck", and smiled
No more headlights through his window
Only shadows from the moon
No more headlights through his window
Lonely shadows from the moon
And though the world outside keeps hurting
It hurts most in your own little room

World keeps on turning
I hope it don't turn bad on you
Track Name: Requiem
Requiem

I don't want to sing this song
But it must be done
Before you're gone
I want you to know
How I'll feel when you're gone
Somewhere far away from me

I see your face fixed like stone
There's noone home
Where should I go
I'll never find you in the hollow
Of all the places we used to go
But you're still here instilled in me
Until I go

I don't know how you'll take this song
But it must be done
Before you're gone
I've never seen you cry
Did you used to cry like me
When it hurt just as bad
Like I do now

I know you'll have no stone
Where I can go
Cry and moan
We'll never meet again
Please, open your eyes
Don't leave me on my own
In this crazy world
