Track Name: In the shadow
In the shadow

Underneath the surveillance dome
I’ll find a place
I can call my own
In the shadow
Where no one is watching me

I can see everyone watching
Everyone watching
Everyone
In the shadow
Where no one can see me

Satellites can’t pin point me
I’m off the grid
Into obscurity
In the shadow

I’ll wait for you
If you dare to come and see me
I’ll wait for you
In the shadow

Totalitarian nightmares
Keep you awake
They watch you in your sleep
In the shadow
They can’t look into your dreams

Data spies can’t analyze
If you get rid
Of their technology
In the shadow

I’ll wait for you
If you dare to come and see me
I’ll wait for you
In the shadow
Track Name: You
You

Always talking to myself
And my imaginary friend
Now a voice inside my head
Says all the things you would've said

All the heart blown apart
Like Burroughs' shotgun art
Someone's walking in my head
In my dreams and in my heart

I see things that aren't real
Optical illusionary friend
All the dreams I have at night
Mix up with my daily life

I need to see you every day
From today on to the grave
Or else I'm sure I'll lose my way
Into deep and darkened days

Does anyone think the way I do?
I only think about you

I'm starting to hear voices in my head
Your voice is in my head
I'm starting to see faces in the crowd
Your face is in the crowd
I'm starting to smell scent in the air
Your scent is in the air
I'm starting to hear voices in my head
Your voice is in my head
I'm starting to see faces in the crowd
Your face is in the crowd
I'm starting to feel love in my heart
Your love is in my heart

Does anyone think the way I do?
I only think about you
If everyone thinks the way I do
Everyone thinks about you
Track Name: Another song
Another song

Now, I’d like to spend more time with you
But sirens signal out it’s curfew
I’d like to talk about the future and all
But we’re staring out the window at a grey brick wall

Aint no use picking out stars
‘neath the chemical sky and the satellite wars
“Protest is futile”, scream it in their face
We’ve been at war since this human race

Another song
Another song
The same old song
About the world gone wrong

I’d like to talk easy, but the news’ stuck in my brain
Like a white noise screaming, makes me lose my aim
I’d believe the movies, ‘bout the bad men going down
But the bitter truth, baby, ‘t is the other way around

We can take our time, take our time to think
With a timebomb ‘a’ticking, ticking timebomb ‘a’ tick
Peace and love? Throw it in their face
One more time for the human race

Another song
Another song
The same old song
About the world gone wrong
Track Name: Let you go
Let you go

Now we are just people
We used to know
We'll never meet again
And if we do we're only friends

I still go to all the places
Where we used to go
But now I'm all alone
With your ghost
Through the quiet empty streets
The hallow places
Where we'd meet
All I have is your memory
Cold wind blowing by my side
Where you used to walk
Now I'm lonely wherever I go
Oh, my mind is my pensive host

Still I always wish
I never let you go

Now my heart feels
Like a stone in a wall
Which holds me inside
Accompanied by my own soul

Everything seems dark and grey
Since I threw your love away
Life turned its back
On me
Silence on the other end
Of the telephone
I'm still waiting
'til you call my name
Your ghost and I spend our time
Whispering words we would say
And I play the holy saint
But oh, my halo fades away

Still I always wish
I never let you go

I'd turn around to turn her on
And never ever go, oh no
I'd turn around to turn her on
And never ever go, oh no
I'd forever endeavour
and never ever go, oh no
Can't you hear I'm begging you:
“Please, please!”

Still I always wish
I never let you go
Track Name: In the sun
In the sun

We're only sitting here
In the sun
Looking like nothing is wrong
Noone likes to get hurt
Don't you know
We can always save it for tomorrow

Sometimes
I want to go far away from here
Anytime
Somewhere in the middle of the air

They always say: “Hey
It's not so bad.”
Staring at the sky turning black
Noone likes to hear the truth
Don't you know
Noone wants you to go against the flow

Sometimes
I want to go far away from here
Anytime
Somewhere in the middle of the air

Sometimes dark clouds
Hang in front my sight
With complaints and mockery
Sometimes I trip
Across the sky
Escape the pull of gravity
Sometimes I scream
Like a flame to the sun
And burn down everything I love
Sometimes I wonder
How do you feel
Am I just the only one?

Only sitting here in the sun
Only sitting here in the sun
