Track Name: Sleepwalking
I want to live through the night, so tomorrow I’ll be dead.
I’m drowning in my own dreams and I’m sleepwalking.
I’m trying to live, but I’m falling again,
fallen leaves, fallen dreams.

My voice is empty ’cause words don’t mean a thing.
I can’t hear what you’re saying and I don’t want to understand.
I cannot hear you.

Every time you look at me you tell me it’s alright
but every time I close my eyes I see all the lies.
There’s a void between me and the life that I’m living.
I’m not here, I’m leaving for another ride.

My voice is empty ’cause words don’t mean a thing.
I can’t hear what you’re saying and I don’t want to understand.
I cannot hear you.
My body doesn’t move how it’s supposed to move.
My mind doesn’t think how it’s supposed to think.
Don’t leave the light on.

Last night I saw myself walking, without any direction.
I’m sleepwalking in this programmed life.

Everytime you look at me you tell me it’s alright,
but every time I close my eyes I'm seeing all the lies.
There’s a void between me and the life that I’m living.
I’m not here, I’m leaving for another ride.

My voice is empty ’cause words don’t mean a thing.
I can’t hear what you’re saying and I don’t want to understand.
I cannot hear you.
My body doesn’t move how it’s supposed to move.
My mind doesn’t think how it’s supposed to think.
Don’t leave the light on.
Track Name: Pretty Mask
Longing for something between right and wrong.
In between heaven and hell, so I lose control.
What I feel is stronger than everything I felt before.
I’ve been taken away, it’s a terrible place,
but for now I’d like to stay.

I feel like falling but I never touch the ground.
I hear them calling, hear them calling.
Behind the trees, behind the lies, behind all the pretty faces.
I hear them calling, calling me.

My feelings suck me empty, they ask too much of me.
Please calm down I hear them say but I pray each night.
I’m drifting away from the person that I used to be.
I’m not giving up, I’m just giving in.

I feel like falling but I never touch the ground.
I hear them calling, calling me.
Behind the trees, behind the lies, behind the pretty façades.
I hear them calling, calling me.

When no one’s looking after me and I’m nowhere to be found.
I lose it all.
When no one’s looking after me and I’m nowhere to be found.
I lose control.

It’s breaking me down.

I feel like falling but I never touch the ground.
I hear them calling. Why are they calling?
Behind the trees, behind the lies, behind your pretty mask.
I hear them calling, calling me.
Track Name: Hate Me Break Me
Today I feel like dying. I don’t think there’s any other way.
I’m scared of the unknown but I can’t stand the familiar
and I get bored of everything I know.

I ain't got nowhere to go.

Hate me, break me. Leave me here to die.
I’m standing with my back against the wall.
Hate me, break me. Leave me here to die.
There’s no way back and I’m dying.

There’s nothing that I can think of that can take this pain away.
’cause it seems like no one even cares.
Who is there to blame? It’s all the same old game.
Get rid of your empty minds and don’t think it’s all right.

I ain't got nowhere to go.

Hate me, break me. Leave me here to die.
I’m standing with my back against the wall.
Hate me, break me. Leave me here to die.
There’s no way back and I’m dying.
Track Name: Noise Country
Traffic lights are keeping me company in endless restless nights.
I don’t know if I’m awake or dreaming.
I got these crazy thoughts flashing through my mind.
There’s a circus in my head.
I see a one legged girl riding her skates on the kitchen table.
She don’t want to go to school. “Because the strawberries are mine.”
I see a small angry man with a hook in his hand.
He cuts into my leg and I bite his neck.
I’m raging, I’m screaming, I’m laughing with my wounds.
Please wake me again.

I’ve been thinking about running away
and feel lonely in some place new.
“The pressure is hard to take for a sinner like me.”
So I keep on running.
Counting the cracks in the asphalt
while I get lost again.
I follow the whirling wind,
it fades my desperate cries.
I need traffic lights ‘cause I can’t be alone.
I need the wind and the rain to go home.
I follow the whirling wind,
it fades my desperate cries.
Track Name: Arsenic Anna
There's a possibility
everything I wanted is not what I need
I was craving. I was longing
but now I’m in a dark place.
A place I always wanted to be
but I’m scared it was only a dream.
Don’t want to think about it.
I don’t want to believe my thoughts
‘cause there’s a possibility
it could end right here.

I was craving. I was longing.

Do I need to think about it? Do i want to forget?
Now I’m here I can’t remember what it was I always wanted.
Desire is too strong, desire poisoned me.
Is this love or is this murder.

There’s a possibility everything I wanted is not what I need.
I was craving. I was longing.

I will linger on.
I follow ‘cause it’s too strong.
Desire poisoned me.
With my eyes closed I will run away from everything that I won.
There’s no way back.
Desire poisoned me.
I was craving. I was longing.
And I’ll run until that fatal step.
I’ll follow until I bleed and then I will fall apart and start over again.
My beliefs are too strong so maybe I should stop right here.
Desire is too strong. Desire poisoned me.
Is this love or is it murder.
This is not what I mean.
I was longing. I was craving
but now I can’t remember why I’m here.
Track Name: Hangman
I crossed the line, again and again.
My knees are bleeding, my hands are shaking.
I can’t remember how I used to be.
Completely broken, begging for more.
I cannot live like I lived before.
I cannot love like I loved before.
I only want your blood to heal my soul.

I try to explain stumbling phrases
but words cannot explain. Words are never enough.
I wander down the streets, gasping for air.
I feel the ground slipping away from under my feet.
There’s a devil in me dragging such a heavy heart.
It only needs my blood to feed his lonely soul, his greedy heart.
Hysteria, you‘re my lover. Am I the only one?

Strangle me slowly, I’m ready to die.
I poisoned my mind and cut out my eyes.
I’m bleeding, I’m bleeding, I’m dripping on the floor.
