Track Name: I Can Never Understand
In a cauldron I am on top,
Below me, what I fear I'm not
When we talk and pretend to connect
I do feel alone, and then I try to
Find the courage in my heart
But where I'm from, we are born without a back

Oh the cold in our waiting room
Well you know what I'm waiting for
When we talk I am taken aback
Oh I will be afraid although I know that
I have got no right to cry
But I did that when you told my heart to implode

I should have known what you were talking about
When you told me that I don't know pain
But I didn't, I couldn't cope with the fact

Oh the cold in our waiting room
Well you know what I'm hoping for
When we talk I am taken aback
Oh I will be afraid, and then I try to
Find the courage in my heart
But where I'm from, we are born without a back

I should have known what you were talking about
When you told me that I don't know pain
But I didn't, I couldn't cope with the fact
That you have felt what would cause any heart to collapse
Track Name: The World Is In Front Of Us All
Show me all the world boy, show me all the world boy
The world is in front of us all
Always on my own then? Forever on my own then?
Talk to nature and kiss solitude goodbye

Tell me will I move on? Tell me will I move on?
You will wonder and end up being old
Old friends disappoint me, old friend you let me down!
Expect from them that they depend on you

Why did you leave me underground
Now I've got no one around
Even though I do fear light
I never wanted you to keep me in the dark
You wanted me to make my future
Shine on you, but I wanted to
Know if gravity can control
whenever I grow,
I know I'll go:

Babababada
Track Name: The Only One Around
Am I the one you want?
Or am I the only one around?
I doubt you even care
And I doubt I'll ever know

And you'll be in my mind
If I can't have you in real life
And up there we will have fun
My love, I hide from everyone

I made the color of your hair
I made it match what I make you wear
Oh my God you are beautiful
But you're not real at all

And you'll be in my mind
If I can't have you in real life
And up there we will have fun
My love, I hide from everyone

I'd be the one for you if I could only move my entire world into my mind
But I'm bound to reality and you're only there when I am imagining

And you''ll be in my mind
If I can't have you in real life
And up there we will have fun
My love, I hide from everyone

Am I the one you want?
Track Name: Pirates!
We could not let go!

Oh we were talking about improving our life back then
But we never got that far, before our ship went down

We're looking back from the great beyond
On our final time, where it all went wrong
Oh when we caught her, we could not let go

Water came in and we weren't prepared
But we had caught a girl so we didn't care
Tied her up to let her know
That we weren't planning on letting her go

She wanted a word with the leader of the pack
But we were all in charge, no turning back!
And when we told her she broke down and cried

Water came in and we weren't prepared
But we had caught a girl so we didn't care
Tied her up to let her know
That we weren't planning on letting her go
Begging for her life she yelled that
She had done no wrong and that we were all mad
We didn't believe her, so we said farewell
But we didn't know that we were headed for hell

We cut off her head we didn't believe her

We cut off her head, we didn't believe her
We were hungry and we ate her
We cut off her head, we didn't believe her
We were hungry and young
Track Name: We Will Get There Eventually
I had walked the chains off my feet
They were doing fine without me
I went looking for a new friend
Who could help me get away from it all

And one day when I felt free
I heard my shadow creeping up on me
It told me the old lie
We don't matter if we're all gonna die

And I know what you'll need from me eventually
And I know what you mean to me
And I hope that you'll be with me
When we go eventually

And I know what you need from me, we will get there eventually
And I know what you mean to me
And I hope that you'll be with me
When we go eventually
Track Name: Fiction
Winter will begin to claim a right to take revenge on all
On account of being robbed of the ability to shine for an eternity
Winter will round' up the imaginative children of nature
And invoke horrible reality by preventing them from dreaming out loud

Winter will make every child fear her name, I'm getting cold
And I feel her getting nearer, I hear her wind around me
Winter will make every fact and every law her weapon
And to undermine her I will put an end to the documentaries headed for all

Time to take on the winter
And end the reign that would devour all life
The right to dream, I'll make our right again
And we will take a dream and shower the world with it

Now I will make the winter pay
For her triumph over all that we made up
Without Fiction, I am Blind
I will fight with my mind
I believe a day will come where we all will be
Able to shower the world
With beautiful Fiction
