This time tomorrow We’ll be away Sweet age of sorrow You left us today Out of the way Speaking in a weak, feeble voice Growing up is not a choice True, but I keep on with this fear ‘Cause everyday in the world I lose my soul ‘Cause everyday in the world I lose my soul There is no path, no place to go You’ll meet me there And all the sorrows, sins and agonies of life Have meaning put in a good song You’ll meet me there So let the body sway On the edge of life On the edge of life, again You’ll meet me there

Promises 03:51
I don’t know if you will hurt me I don’t know if we’ll get a job I don’t know the time when we’ll realize That we rolled into the grime and we’ll divide I don’t know if we will quarrel I don’t know if we’ll forgive I don’t know anymore if you will ignore all the losing sides of me That I couldn’t hide I couldn’t hide until I’d find another way I don’t know if we’ll have money And I don’t know if you’ll ask me How I made it all, how I lost it all I don’t know if you’ll beg me to leave you alone To leave you alone and if all this will be down to us If you’re not by my side Your distance Is worse than the unknown If you’re not by my side Your distance Kills me so bad I can’t get anymore

Driving for a very long time Just to feel alright Just to feel alright again So long is the night And you need a light And you need a light again Or just another way To leave all this behind Or just another way To try and keep the promises made Til the end of the day This is a good day A good day to run away This is a good day Til the end of the day Be your own island Be your own isle

I swear I had some words so wry Something touching and moving You could be blown away But I forgot ’em peeking at people Piled up into the mall Trying to stop losing all my time alone Trying to stop sneaking like a spy Set me free Trying to stop losing all my time alone ‘Cause nothing is here to survive Nothing is here to survive but love I swear I had a way out To refuse the refuges and try To enter the fray Not even blending in the masses Saved my soul from the feeling The feeling of being wrong We are lovers, loners, losers

Put on your new shoes, make up your face Today we leave this place You don’t know how beautiful you are Everytime you cling to me Bombs will not rain over us We will neutralize’em with a silent lullaby Hold me pretending to Pretending to be strong Repeat to me with lying lips We’re different from everyone else Faces lose their shape Treason’s something we know too well Swear to God, life erases everything But this is not the day Bombs will not rain over us Like when I fled from your room Singing in the night this crappy silent lullaby

Wreckage 03:59
You have never learnt how to learn That is why you’re so taciturn The thin glass between you and life Won’t be broken without strife No one will write a song No one will write a song for you So you made your own ‘Cause everything you want to know Is what will be left of these days before the haze Wreckage – you are the wreckage Wreckage – beautiful wreckage You will never be spoken of Because history has no place for love There is no stone with your name on But we’ll remember you Oh, we’ll remember you Wreckage – You are the wreckage Wreckage – Beautiful wreckage Set aside, away to bide your old age Dance to music gone to rust No dust, just a matter of trust Evoke spirits of the radio

A sunny summer afternoon There was a lake And all our friends were there Your eyes seemed to say all the time Here’s not worth Not worth anything Children on the edge of time We didn’t know, life is just a race of the blind In the woods I got very close to you Telling you vaguely: We’ll be lucky if it is only hard But, truly, you’ll see further Than the old, cold, untold walls That are trapping aside us all It’s been so many years I’m still in love with you Wherever you may be Children on the edge of time We didn’t know, life is just a race of the blind In the woods As long as you can go

Wasted 05:06
I lost myself away from here I lost myself far away from here If you should get in touch with him Could you be so kind To tell him that I’m scared And there’s a thing I need to ask him: "Did it make you feel good?" The last decade wasn’t easy I know The last decade, I’m honest, was a mess But this is not a reason to give up Both of us know well that if I’m gone Everything you are is wasted Everything you were is wasted The somebody we’ve been will turn into Nobody That old world of ours If only I knew In a blinding second disappeared I lost myself away from here I lost myself far away from here I will not find a place to dwell But now I can make my farewell Need to drag the mud away We shall vanish not to perish
10.
It’s just a midnight ride Nobody cares if words will be deceivers ‘Cause they have got a world inside And soon will try to make you cry Just begging for a hope Uncertainly waiting for a feeling That lets you go out of sight Like a Bowie love song Just turning aside Let’s drown our fears at sea It’s just a midnight ride And any piece of road and silence, fine Because you’re desperately running out of time ‘Cause you’ve got no control key And you’ll take me into your void
11.
What happened today Is worth nothing but leaves you speechless What happened today Lets you barely get back home breathless What happened today is useless Like when all the morning’s good intentions Are erased by darkness Like when all the words you said during the day Sound hollow and meaningless What happened today is useless Useless, useless - Can a sequence of bad days Useless, useless - Overhang your life? Useless, useless - If I had an answer I wouldn’t feel So useless
