Track Name: 1982
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
Track Name: Promises
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
Track Name: Be Your Own Island
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
Track Name: Lovers Loners Losers
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
Track Name: Silent Lullaby
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
Track Name: Wreckage
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
Track Name: Children Lake
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
Track Name: Wasted
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
Track Name: Midnight Ride
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
Track Name: What Happened Today Is Useless
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
