Track Name: waves
there’s a silence
you will never hear
i’m sinking
and drowning
in waves of endless fear

beyond the mask
of this raging storm
my every memory
is lost and reborn
you’re hoping to find
what you need
you’re trying to breathe
you’re trying to feel
but the sea takes
everything from you
it swallows you whole
and you’re trying to
grab onto a rope
you want to see
a chance to live
a chance to be
that person
who survived
just someone
who survived

this feeling you long for
your compass
is somewhere below
the surface cuts
two worlds atwain

their ship sails away
and the tide rages on
the coast is in sight
and the ocean
is calming down

but still you’re afraid to let go
you want to drown
you want this storm
your rope is pulling you down
and the struggle is over
there’s no need
for a new beginning
drowning was the only way out
this was your last gasp for air
this was your last chance

and the waves
will carry away
my soul and the fear
i held so close
the weight of the water
has set me free
Track Name: colour/less
these flowers growing into nothing
my heart - their soil
my mind - their grave
colours for the world to see
shallow roots are killing me

everything is beautiful
everything is falling apart

you're digging deep to find the truth
empty graves awaiting you
staring at these weathered walls
just to find my aching soul

waiting for the day to come
waiting for its time to pass
knowing nothing will be there
outside this empty shell
Track Name: dezember in bordeaux
wohin du auch gehst
deine hoffnungen schwinden
mit jeder sekunde stirbt
der gedanke zu finden
was du eins vergessen
und zu träumen gewagt

dein ein und alles
dein heiliger gral
plötzlich so wahr
zum greifen nah
doch nur ein moment
ein einziger kuss
des augenblicks stille
zerstört den genuss

welchen du herbeiriefst
in dieser nacht
er hat uns beide
zu fremden gemacht

dein antlitz so stolz
deine nähe so fern
ich gäbe wirklich alles
das leben zu spür'n
wie wir es gedachten
wie du es erträumt
doch scheint es mir
haben wir uns verlaufen
in unserer einsamkeit

und was ist schon
der tod im vergleich
zu dir?

im schwindel versunken
wir taumeln umher
kein halt keine wärme
ein endloses meer
aus tränen und pein
sind stets auf der suche
könnten blinder kaum sein

so ist doch der ausweg
der tod uns'rer sorgen
der quälerei ende
die sehnsucht nach morgen
ein letzter kuss
ein verhaltener blick
so kehren all deine träume

ans ende zurück
Track Name: y castillo de oro
so i sail away from this small town
so i sail away from this bone church
so i sail away from this dark house
so i sail away from these old smokes

so i sail away from my family
so i sail away from my memory
so i sail away from my family
so i sail away from you
sail away from
