Track Name: Breathe (I Recover)
Running. Nothing but running.
Running. I’m running away.

Breathe deep, my lungs are burning but I won’t turn around again.
A storm of rage is chasing me, is this ever going to end?
My body’s shaking, all I want is to escape from this state of insecurity.

Running. Nothing but running.
Running. I’m running away.

I’m still breathing, I can feel:
The burdens of the past grasping for me!
I was caught, I escaped and I recover.
Track Name: Where Am I?
This is disappointment.
This is desperation.
The harm of generations...

We never learned to communicate with what is deep inside.
So we suffer on our own, by accepting a selfish pride.

What’s the essence of self? As it’s afraid. Afraid and shy.

What’s the value of the words we share when spending trust?
A problem can’t be solved alone, feelings not denied.

Why so displaced? Why so shy?
Why do we only cry behind disguise?
Blinded by alienation, numbed by discouragement.
Too many memories are caged, behind the bars of a daunted self.
Track Name: Always Aware
You took my hand and you guided me out of teenage troubles and apathy.
In a time when I didn’t know my name you showed me how to hide my shame.

In an insane world I’m staying sane.

The walls you broke inside my mind became the bricks I throw when I decline.
I just try to feel safe in my skin. No more self-doubts or digging in.

I come as I: Reserved and scared of being held captive and getting hurt.
I oppose my place within the herd. Yeah I’m afraid but I’m stepping out!
In an insane world I’m staying sane and always aware.
I’m always aware. Self-aware.
Track Name: A Cloud Of Lies
Said you would but you just lied.
For you it’s no big deal, for me simply betrayal.
Thought I knew you right from the start.
To see your true face tears my heart apart.

Said you would stand by my side.
Always support me in each and every fight.
I put my trust in you, too faithful to see
that a dark cloud of lies is surrounding me.

You can’t hold a promise, you just left me hanging.
And I start to doubt that you’ll even regret it.
Track Name: Saddened Parts
I’ve been walking all around the earth.
I’ve faced the beauty of the entire world.
Always wish that you accompany me,
untie your blindfold and lose the small-town shell.

Now you ignore me and don’t want to recognize,
why my ambitions are burning in your eyes.

While anxious feelings prevent your honest sleep.
And the daily grind jams on steady repeat.
You’re so fucking scared about what I’ve become.
But you’ll never reflect by staring at the sun.

Am I the bad son? Are you the bad mom? Where is our bond?
Track Name: Discomfort
Walking down a path of ages, visionary blind.
The privilege is by our side!
Living like there’s no tomorrow and no troubles on your mind.
The privilege is by our side!

No need to care nor to explain when you fit the norm.
Putting on endless weight so the world can’t drag us down:
We all perform to stay conform.
We all perform to stay conform.

When the world stops turning, I just want to fly away!
Balance and composure overcome gravity.
I can’t name reasons to stay.
