Track Name: Easy Way
They’ve taken everything
They’ve taken all I had
Life is a scary thing
And now I’m all alone
No one to take me by the hand
Life is a scary thing

And now I wake to this
Cold hard light of day
What was I hoping for?
And who can know the mysteries
Of what is meant to be…

He looked at me across an empty room
He spoke to me across a thousand years
Then he was gone away
He was gone away
I’m crying timeless tears
I’m crying timeless tears

I want the easy way
Where is the easy way?
I want the easy way
Is there an easy way?
Track Name: Nearly Gone
Hello dark and lonely night
Driving down the highway of my broken dreams
No sunrise in sight
It’s quite as bad as it seems

Man, I’m so far down
I’m nearly gone, I’m nearly gone, I’m nearly gone
Man, I’m so far down
I wish I knew where I went wrong

Now regret I live and breathe
Day and night, all night and day it drags me down
Too late now I see
Too late to turn things around

Man, I’m so far down
I’m nearly gone, I’m nearly gone, I’m nearly gone
Man, I’m so far down
I wish I knew where I went wrong

Never again - no never again will I turn away
Never again - no never again will I drink away the voice that tries to say
“Don’t throw your life away, oh baby, please don’t do it
Don’t throw your life away, oh baby, baby, please don’t do it”

He loved me
He loves me not, he loves me not, he loves me not
He loved me
He loves me not, he loves me not, he loves me not
He loves me not
Track Name: Speed of Life
Speed of life
Passing signs
Too fast to read them
Catching a glimpse
But never enough
To learn a lesson from

Distractions
From all sides
And what do they mean?
We never arrived
We only burned out

Something inside walks like a demon,
Wages a war upon us now

The speed of life
Passing signs
Too fast to read them
I caught a glimpse
But not enough
To learn a lesson from

Something inside walks like a demon,
Wages a war upon us now
Now
Track Name: Nicht Mehr
Ich will nicht mehr leben
Ich moechte am liebsten sterben
Zu haus kann ich nicht schlafen
Ich will nur noch einen trinken

Ich will - Ich will nicht
Ich will - Ich will nicht mehr

Ich pass auf was ich sage
Pass nicht auf was ich denke
Ich pass auf was ich hoere
Pass nicht was ich trinke

Ich pass auf - Ich pass nicht auf
Ich pass auf - Ich pass auf nicht

Ich will - Ich will nicht
Ich will - Ich will nicht mehr, Ich will nicht mehr
Track Name: Oh Loneliness
Oh loneliness, you’re here again
It seems to me sometimes that you’re my only friend
You know I even miss you when you’re gone
Just while away the days ‘til we carry on

I’ll follow deeper than the sea
And higher than the sun
Heaven knows how far I’m gonna run
I’ll follow farther than the stars
I know I might get lost
But heaven knows what loneliness can cost

Hey loneliness where have you been?
And have you brought along some of your good friends?
Cause tragedy is knocking at my door
And misery has come around for more
And woundedness, and enmity
And bitterness, insanity –
Hey I don’t think there’s room for everyone

You’ll follow on and on and on
And heaven only knows
Heaven knows how far you’re gonna go
You’ll follow on and on and on
And heaven only knows
Heaven knows how far we’re gonna go
And heaven only knows how far we’ll go…
Track Name: Elsinore
The skies above are silver and grey
The echoes of my heart so far away
There’s no going back to the life I had before
There’s no going back to Elsinore

Oh, Elsinore
Oh, Elsinore

The clouds above are filled with the coming rain
As memories do flood my heart again
With each breath I take I feel the pain a little more
Oh how I miss those days at Elsinore

Oh, Elsinore
Oh, Elsinore

I will remember you always…

Oh waves upon the sea, I long in vain
As if our lives could ever be the same
And all those years ago we knew not what life had in store
The precious moments lived at Elsinore

Oh, Elsinore
Oh, Elsinore
Track Name: Take Me Down
One more drink, one more line
One more hit, just one more time
Before it all just takes me down
One more scream, one more cry
One more fight and one more lie
It takes me down

Take me down, even now it takes me down you know and how
Take me down, even now it takes me down you know and how

I wanna love, I wanna kill
I want some peace, I want a thrill
That don’t take me down
I wanna know, I wanna see
I wanna break the damn TV
It gets me down

Take me down, even now it takes me down you know and how
Take me down, even now it takes me down you know and how

No sky above me, no ground below
No one to take me, nowhere to go

I’ve had enough, I’ve had too much, and I’m quite unwound
I’m out of time, am I out of touch?
It’s got me down

No sky above me, no ground below
No one to take me, nowhere to go
Track Name: Good Advice
Are there any words for me to measure?
Is there any place that I can stand?
Caught somewhere between the pain and pleasure
Living in this godforsaken land

I’m sinking low as you rise above
I drown in sorrow, you swim in love
Hey hey
Yeah yeah
Hey hey

I’ve become so weary of the shocking
Holding on to try and keep my head
But they seem to do always that talking
And I start to wish that I was dead

And oh my soul, it’s a crying shame
The things they do - no, it’s not a game
No no
Hey hey
No no

Once upon a time when I was dreaming
That surely they would come to see my way
Certainty descended into scheming
Once again I’ve nothing left to say

You told me once and you told me twice
But I couldn’t follow that good advice
No no
Hey hey
No no
Hey hey
No no
Hey hey
No no
Track Name: No Stranger to Sorrow
I’m no stranger to sorrow, I’m no stranger to pain, I’m no stranger to loneliness
But my heart is a-breaking, overwhelmed by shame
In a misery that no one here could guess

I am down in the mire of my own disgrace and I know not what to do
I am seeking forgiveness as I hide my face
Oh Lord I call on you

Help me, Jesus - help me, Jesus - Lord, I need you now
Help me, Jesus - help me, Jesus - Lord, I need you now
Lord, I need you now

I have lived in rebellion, I have gone my own way, I have walked a wicked path
If I find my redemption, it will be your way
Oh take me down that straight and narrow path
Take me down the straight and narrow path

Help me, Jesus - help me, Jesus - Lord, I need you now
Help me, Jesus - help me, Jesus - Lord, I need you now
Lord, I need you now

You’re no stranger to sorrow
You’re no stranger to pain
You’re no stranger to loneliness
Track Name: Waiting
The sky of blue
The fields of gold
The beauty all around
And in the air
The autumn air
I hear a lonesome sound, sound
I am waiting

An open door
An empty glass
A clock not keeping time
The thought of you
A moment past
Your footsteps in my mind, mind
I am waiting
For going home

I met him in another world
A million miles away
He took my heart
He took my hand
He’s showing me the way, yeah
No more waiting
I’m going home

And when I get there
Will everything be as a dream?
And when I get there
Will I forget the things I’ve seen?
