Track Name: Cotton wool
Sometimes it feels like
Someone is watching me
I can feel their eyes upon me.
I´m seldom lonely
I´m never on my own
I don´t know who it is or why they care.

It hurts me to see myself
as being so naive,
It makes me wonder why you care.
I was so comfortable
wrapped up in cotton wool,
I didn´t see that you were scared.
It hurts me, it pains me.
I´m sorry babe!
I didn´t see that you were scared.

So just for once
don´t leave me hanging
in the dark.

It hurts me to see myself
as being so naive,
It makes me wonder why you care.
I was so comfortable
wrapped up in cotton wool,
I didn´t see that you were scared.
Track Name: Gazing into the abyss
I´m coming on strong
It´s coming out all wrong,
but at least i´m
trying.
It´s all going south
i´ve put my foot in my mouth
I hate to see you
crying.
I try to be kind
going out of my mind
can´t stand the
lying.
Just give it to me straight
it´s never too late
our love is
dying.

It can be hard to tell
when you are joking
Northern lights are beckoning
siren song evoking.

Since I saw you there
without a single care
my hearts been
yearning.
I´ve been up all night
you gave me such a fright
my stomach´s
turning.

It can be hard to tell
when you are joking
Your eyes emit an amber glow
my soul starts floating.

In hindsight I realise
it all started with a kiss.
It´s so hard to visualise
gazing into the abyss.

I´m coming on strong
It´s coming out all wrong,
but at least i´m
trying.
Just give it to me straight
it´s never too late
our love is
dying.

It can be hard to tell
when you are joking
Life´s like a kaleidoscope
of misunderstandings.
Track Name: Kaos
My name is Kaos
and I rule your world.
My roar is deafening
yet remains unheard.
If you ever reach me
it will be too late.
Your soul with wither
as will your fate.

Running away just doesn´t help at all
(I´m running away now unless you make it show)
If you don´t change yourself you´ll surely fall
from grace again.

Your hatred,
it brings me down.
Be silent,
don´t make a sound.

My name is Kaos
and I rule your world.
My roar is deafening
yet remains unheard.
If we ever reach
the point of no return
I shall unleash
and i´ll watch you burn.

Nothing is real unless you make it so.
(I´m running away now)
If you don´t change yourself you´ll surely fall.
Running away just doesn´t help at all
(I´m running away now unless you make it show)
If you don´t change yourself you´ll surely fall
from grace again.

Your hatred,
it brings me down.
Be silent,
don´t make a sound.
Track Name: Just because
Just because you know that i´m wrong
and just because you know i´m not strong
doesn´t mean that you can re-arrange me.

Just because you know that i´m strong
and just because you know i´m not wrong
doesn´t mean that you can re-arrange me.

Even though you´re already gone
and even though your memory lives on
doesn´t mean that you can stay and haunt me.

Even though i´m already gone
and even though i´ll never return
doesn´t mean that you can choose to forget me.

I look into your eyes
and I can visualise
that way down deep inside
is good.

Just because you know that i´m wrong
and just because you know i´m not strong
doesn´t mean that you can re-arrange me.

Just because you know that i´m strong
and just because you know i´m not wrong
doesn´t mean that you can re-arrange me.

So look into my eyes
and you will realise
that way down deep inside
is good.
Track Name: Lost (without you)
There´s no one, no, no one
quite like you.
My dreams of fulfilment
have come true.

I sing “la, la, la..”

Maybe i´d be totally and utterly lost
without you.

I sing “la, la, la..”

There´s no one, no, no one
quite like you.
My dreams of fulfillment
have come true.

I sing “la, la, la..”
Track Name: To & fro
Subversive thoughts lined up in a row
I digress as you stare out the window
My words dissolving, ebbing to & fro
Your gaze lost in the hedgerow

Your mother left you all alone
You sought to find a brand new home
You never found the sanctuary
An obvious necessity

Violence invades your velvet voice
Your willpower deprived of choice
An unwelcome stranger invading our space
Loneliness giving us a cold embrace

Your mother left you all alone
You sought to find a brand new home
You never found the sanctuary
An obvious necessity
At bullet speed we race through time
History no friend of mine
Somewhere to rest, perchance to dream
is hard to find, or so may seem

To & fro
Oh

Control myself and i´ll be fine
Come satisfy my needs
Come dawn the sun will start to shine
Put an end to evil deeds

Your mother left you all alone
You sought to find a brand new home
You never found the sanctuary
An obvious necessity
At bullet speed we race through time
History no friend of mine
Somewhere to rest, perchance to dream
is hard to find, or so may seem

To & fro
Oh
Track Name: Wretch
Please don´t tell anyone
I was here
If they ever found out
I´d be in real trouble
So please don´t tell anyone
I was here
if they ever found out
I´d be in real trouble

The first time I saw your face
I could hardly believe my eyes
I knew that i´d seen you before
Just couldn´t picture where or when
Now I know
I can visualise the location...

Please don´t tell anyone
I was here
If they ever found out
I´d be in real trouble
I could never go home again
So please don´t tell anyone
I was here
I´m a wretch, i´m a wretch
I´m a real wretch
A real wretch

Spare me
Spare me
Spare me

So please don´t tell anyone
I was here

Please don´t tell anyone
I was here
If they ever found out
I´d be in real trouble
Track Name: Trying to find myself
Can you hear me?
Can you see me?
Can you feel me?
I can´t tell
I am constantly hovering up here floating on my own
I have never felt so familiar yet so far from home
Can you hear me?
Can you see me?
I can feel you
But you can´t tell

Uncaged birds with broken wings
Confused identity
We cannot hear
We cannot see
We cannot feel much at all
We´re uncaged birds with broken wings

It is dark now
I don´t know how
Politicians sleep at night
This mass-produced wool is constantly covering our eyes
A blanket of insecurity feeding us lies

Uncaged birds with broken wings
Confused identity
We cannot hear
We cannot see
We cannot feel much at all
We´re uncaged birds with broken wings

As the sun begins to rise
i´m beginning to realise
We´re distracted by a roses thorn
as we transcend from dusk to dawn

Uncage the birds
This flock is huge
I´m trying to find myself
and nobody else
Track Name: These words
These words are mine
These words are said
Don´t hide your tears it´s too late
Used to be just you and me

These words are mine
These words are said
Open wide and never end
Never to be young and fade again

Open your heart
I´m here for you
All of these memories
Stay in our hearts

These words are mine
These words are said
Don´t hide your tears it´s too late
Used to be just you and me

These words are mine
These words are said
Open wide and never end
Never to be young and fade again
