01 Hiding in the Twilight I hear everything too clear and give away too much the echo of a broken child thoughts reflect against the walls inside my head you gave everything to me filled my bag with poison to sail away uncomplete thoughts reflect against the walls in my head hiding in the twilight shadows on the wall don't show me how proud you are for leaving me so small despite my growing tears I sit alone in my dreams the echo of a broken mind thoughts reflect against the walls in my head hiding in the twilight shadows on the wall don't show me how proud you are for leaving me so small don't go don't break me down (2x) hiding in the twilight shadows on the wall don't show me how proud you are you make my skin crawl hiding in the twilight shadows on the wall don't show me how proud you are for leaving me so small

Animals 04:23
02 Animals my back between flowers just watching clouds floating can't role over to a better place when will it go away till the shadows become one with the shades from the sun I won't run, I won't run I'm an animal, searching to survive give me life back jumped into the water I've lost myself again this escape still feels unsafe I'm sinking down slowly till the shadows become one with the shades from the sun I won't run, I won't run I'm an animal searching to survive give me life back I can get used to the tears and the pain but I never wanted to live this way I'm an animal searching, to survive give me life back

Miles Away 04:32
03 Miles Away driving in the car think of all that's done can't control my breath and thoughts listening to my heart it's all passing by so fast forget all that's in the past waited all night leaving me blind just waiting on the sideline you are miles away I beg you to step out of this fairytale so close I hear you breathe something just pulled me away from this place stuck between my walls I hope this lie won't hurt that much you forgot all the faces you love waited all night leaving me blind just waiting on the sideline you are miles away I beg you to step out of this fairytale there's too much darkness in our way please don't forget I'm also afraid I'm so afraid don't leave me blind I can do nothing to make a change waited all night leaving me blind just waited on the sideline I have warned you you are miles away I beg you to step out of this fairytale there's too much darkness in our way please don't forget I'm also afraid

Fire Flight 05:47
04 Fire Flight I hit the bottom of my fears I need to stand up do you change or do you only stay why should I stay, why should I wait this can't be right I'm holding too tight you're holding hands with your fingers cold I can't explain what is going on it happend way to soon where am I, where am I, holding tight where Am I, where am I, holding on too tight why did I loose track of time It feels alright just let it all collide don't need to guess it was a fire flight the pieces fitted now let them fall it will be alright do we need the tension or do we watch it die do you sense my weakness or do you still don't mind where am I, where am I, holding tight can't sleep at night, chased through time, forced to fight where am I, where am I, holding tight can't sleep at night, chased through time, holding on too tight why did I loose track of time It feels alright just let it all collide don't need to guess It was a fire flight the pieces fitted now let them fall It will be alright you've made me realize, blood running through my veins miles made it turn black, theres no going back can't follow where you lead your eyes, your eyes they turn me can't follow where you lead don't memorize the distance in between

The Road 01:38
06 The Road how can I walkwhen the ground is moving how can I break when you try to keep me covered in dust because of your choices buried in pressure that will push me down with my feet on the ground my mouth is moving my eyes are frozen, broken down my thoughts are stolen could you please go before you guide me could you please go before I take the wrong road could you please go before you guide me could you please go

07 King Of The Night hello king of the night you force me to fight but I won't raise my knife I'm captured in your hands your eyes follow me everywhere please don't bite because i won't fight back when you finally realize it's not me you're the only one to set us free stuck between the walls you call home the silence feels too cold fears hidden behind the stones let me untie your ropes you've faced everything on your own step away from your throne desires stuck between the stones let me untie your ropes hello king of control light up the fire so we can see more blood will flow, I feel it burns I'm captured in your world your fingers take their turns wind me up and watch me getting hurt when you finally realize it's not me you're the only one to set us free follow the shadows of my despair you will find me there if you dare stuck between the walls you call home the silence feels too cold fears hidden behind the stones let me untie your ropes hello king of the night you force me to fight hello king of control you force me to fight when the night is falling you hear me, breathe me, touch me (2x)
