Track Name: The Upsetters
It's hard to be
But we can't find better
Since the dawn of time
We've been the upsetters
Cease to keep all inside
Leave your heart to bleed
For something better
Fallen tears of helplessness
Cutting through flesh

Dry skin
Under rain
Tissues drained of true love

An endless dark undertone
Keeps on taking over

All you ever want
Will turn to blind you
Of all you ever need

Hold your loved ones, hurry
Hold'em tight
Restless death is counting time
Track Name: Please, Don't Leave
We were floating high
While laying down
Wheighting a ton
The scent of you

I'm crawling on my knees
(please don't leave)
You're like heroin for the soul
Keep all those little burning poems
As they sing our own song

We can go hide
No return
Delaying a goodbye
Is the only truth
Track Name: Change
We're holding the yolk before it slips
Through our bruised hands
We've built this home,
Where half the floor is sunk
Just half the ceiling still holding on
Our heart is calling for a change
Oh father we’re hoping for that change

Might get loud
We're hoping for a change
It's time now
People are changing
Might get loud
We're calling for a change
Don't rest now

Flaming words bursting through the chest
Kept for so long
Moldy souls finally unchained
Rushing through the pores, entwined
Track Name: Howling for a Chance
Don't hold that burden
Leave it all to me
I'll cross the land for
A final plea
So get out of your skin
And talk with me
Part of us will be

I'm howling for a chance, baby
I'm begging for a chance, trust me
Track Name: Feathers and Wax
He said: I’ll build you wings out of feathers and wax
We will escape this maze, leave Crete and don't look back
Flew so high, too close to the sun
Fell out of the sky, sunk into the ocean

He didn’t fly too high
Should’ve learned to dive

Enjoy the fall
Let it teach you how to trust
It's a path of mistakes
But there’s a way out
When darkness arrives
Will leave a breach for your own light
Track Name: Uneasy
I'm holding on to a string, uneasy
Two rotting hearts on a shelf, weeping blood
Closely, falling endlessly
Hurt and bleeding all over, believe me

I'm holding on to a string, uneasy
Hurt and bleeding all over, believe me

Don't give up now
Fight for us now
Track Name: Heavy
What does she do?
To leave me motionless
Blinding me
How can I enclose myself in a bottle?

I cried the truth
To find out how to keep my faith

What does she do?
To leave me passionless
Blinding me
Her bones turn into a fetish
Suddenly ready for me to tear apart

I apologize for everything you hold
Every arm I take
I've realized that every shallow moment quickly disappears
I won't hide
And hope that all has changed I'll stay home today
Track Name: I Don't Want Nobody
That's us, spinning around, all together
Everybody needs a little sunshine
And a tear shed when they die
But why should I worry that much
If all of us soon turn to dust
And it's funny how love makes us dumb
And we see stars already dead
86 billion brain cells in silence
Waiting for some spark, someone

I don’t want nobody
And it’s making me heavy
True, I want no one
But this loneliness is making me heavy
I don’t want nobody
But this is making me heavy
I should need someone
Cause this is making me heavy
