Track Name: Fragile (feat. Chin Z.)
Can you catch up?
Although increasing pace
you can't make up ground
always one tiny step behind

And I behave
as if I knew what to do
Every prospect I take
from the vastness of lives to choose
I watched them from afar

Now settle what
you owe to your past
Break the lock of your cell
Free your mind from
tempting regress
Declare war on yourself
Declare war on yourself

But in a system
so compassionate
people melt into a collective mass
and they're jumping onto railways
just to catch a non-existent train

It's mocking me
though I complain
I am part of the routine
Wasting all my faculties
I will change my state

I'm turning the page
(I'm more than this fragile batch of skin and bones)
I stop being afraid of myself
(I'm more than an accumulation of thoughts)
I repeat this match for the better
(My hands are for acting,
my arms are for love)
Repeat to hold it in my head
(My throat is too dry
still to swallow the pill)

And all the faith to be buried
(Faith to be burried)
It will hurt
(It will hurt)
It will hurt
(It will hurt)
It will hurt
(It will hurt)

It's so odd
to look at someone
you used to call yourself
and no longer
feel a thing
What a fortune
I'm renewing
I would have done so much in different ways
but right in front of me
stands an old and rigid man
to be transformed
just a handshake away
from breakdown and fall
Track Name: Troubled
I tried my
best to save
you from collapse
For what I know
I've done nothing wrong at all
And seeking wisdom to comprehend
I soon reached my peak and
built a defense

My faith got even stronger
when it all went down
You fed me pieces of your cracked self
and I swallowed them

Some people look for their problems
in other people's health
Some people have the constant wish
to annihilate themselves

I don't know
Could be that
you just reach for a hand
But if so
why do you wound it
while you grab it then?

Like
Like you did back then
Like you did with him

Apart from what we both went through
You should know what I just can't let you do
You should know what tears my heart by now
I left a piece in yours, but its very core
remains a part of me and I guarantee
that I found someone else to give it to
And your fate's no longer mine
your fate's no longer mine

You couldn't break, couldn't break me
You could not
You couldn't break, couldn't break me
You could not
You couldn't break, couldn't break me
You could not
You couldn't break, couldn't break me
You could not
You couldn't break, couldn't break me
You could not
You couldn't break, couldn't break me
You could not
You couldn't break,
couldn't break my heart

So sick of your false empathy
So tired of all your lies
So sick of who we are
So tired of what we've done
as troubled beings
as troubled beings
as troubled beings
as troubled beings
Track Name: River/Small Necessities
I entered this river to swim
Opened my eyes underwater to see
But lost my way through the flood
and nearly dropped dead
cause I couldn't fight agony

I entered those heavens for hope
Raised my hands to the clouds for a prayer
Then lost my faith but these days
I can tell I'm dead certain
Trying has been worth every bit

The texture of your skin
fragile like dreams sends me to sleep
Listen, listen, listen
to whispers of guilt

My blood is thin and I'm
trying to hide away from life
Listen, listen, sun
won't hurt your eyes

Mother
Where are you?
Mother
What am I?
Mother
Help me for
god's sake
Protect me
Mother

Saddest waste of youth

I couldn't read your alphabet
I cannot read those lines
And all those small necessities
Seem needless such a kind
A playground for adults
That don't know how to grow
Releasing all their tensions
in minimal expose
Please tell me where to look at
Give me a benchmark here
I'll probably quit looking
You've made no sense in years

You've made no sense in years
You've made no sense in years

And I've been hunting for pleasure
I've been hunting for ghost
And I've been faking my memories
to redeem my remorse
I try to balance the future
I try to offset the past
Making my life an illusion
to evade the blast

Fearing what I have once chosen
All your truth hurts my ears
I composed my emotions
to get as close as sincere
I saw an angel I'm sure
Though I'm not able to see
And I'm permitting myself
to never think again

I'm banned for a lifetime
Banned from reaching a goal
Because I'll never be certain
of what I really want
And while I drown in self-pity
I try to hold the precept
that all I do has a reason
and I am becoming myself
Track Name: Schlaflied (feat. Maika Küster)
Someone else's hopelessness
led you to graves
That I'll never visit
The pain comes in waves
No goodbye just you vanishing
silently

Sirens that I cannot hear
They're too far away from me
I wish you would have died in my arms
so your fading away would have been peaceful
I miss you so much
I hope that time will heal the pain

Like the rain
In a cloudburst
Torn
to pieces
Fragments
You felt it
All that lasts
Shapes of a loved one
Oh, don’t leave me

Angelic voices
called
as if you
sent me some
last
phrases of love

A funeral without a body
Just a small comfort
Because you've never been found
between the stones in the mountains
God, let me hold her hand
Just for a short time
Please let me feel its warmth

Don't leave me like this
Don't leave me like this
Don't leave me like this

How long will it take for me
To pull that thorn out of my heart
I can't stop the bleeding
I can't stop the bleeding

How long will it take for me
To pull that thorn out of my heart
I can't stop the bleeding
I can't stop the bleeding

I'm begging to God you could have payed nature's debt
I know it's impossible
But hope for you to come back
I refuse to imagine
you encountering your fears
Taking you with them
and ripping you off my side

Foreign desperate hands set your fate
I would like to ask you how it feels to lie dying

But you probably didn't have the chance
to wonder yourself
Too fast has the ground
ended your sorrow
I hope that you've been
carried away softly
I hope that you've been
carried away softly

Time of departure has come
Time of departure has come

I'm begging to God you could have payed nature's debt
I know it's impossible
But hope for you to come back
Track Name: Blindfold
I hang up pictures
on my own
Replacing sketches of me
with portraits of
lives that went wrong
But I'm not as pale as
the canvas
I paint on
I paint on

I faced a fissure
on an empty map
Hoping you could lend
a helping hand to climb ahead

But you were numb
just the same as me
Living in these timeless
pictures of my gallery

So you have stepped
out of the frames some time ago
Left me only with myself
and noone else to show

Roses' thorns
will leave me without a choice
I saw the snare
Your plan to make me crawl

You've got to wait until the ending
that's never meant to come
You've got to wait for me letting my guard down
I put my armor to the ground

Love is a blindfold
a stalemate when you play
against yourself
Makes you a terrorist
that only waits to harm
oneself

You've got to wait until you get what you have paid for

Let me fade away
you're just a child of the past

I make up my mind
Make up my mind
for the first
and only time
I'll be fine - probably
Thirst
Thirst for life
Will to go
on
to breathe air
to breathe air
but

I know that summer's to come
And we're still the same
I know that summer's to come
And we're still the same
I know that summer's to come
And we're still the same
I know that summer's to come
And we're still the same

I know
the truth
God made you for a different purpose
Can't obey

I know
the truth
There is no specific reason at all
Can't accept

Tell me
why can't it stop
I'll force it down
with violence
Why can't it stop
I lose control
in here
there is no coincidence
I swear
