Track Name: Bliss
my father
and my mother
they raised me so well
that I don't need to
nor do I wan't to
raise any hell

life is a chance you shouldn't miss
if you eat right and sleep right
it's bliss

my brother
my dear brother
he put me through hell
yet I trust him
yet I love him
I think that he is swell

life is a chance you shouldn't miss
if you eat right and sleep right
it's bliss

and if I fall out of grace
I'll remember the place
where I used to be
and land on my feet

life is a chance you shouldn't miss
if you eat right and sleep right
it's bliss
Track Name: Sunshine and someone to hold
from now on it's all out war
trying to make a sound
out of beliefs in which I ground
what tells me what is wrong
in this picture, in this song
about soul, and where I long

right when you can't turn around it's there
I won't believe in them
or at least I won't care

right when you can't turn around it's there
I won't believe in them
and for sure I won't care

about this breath of gold
of letting myself go
of silence and rain
sunshine and someone to hold

coming back to expect more
out of who I've known
myself to be, a sickling gone
to the other side of right
for this I will fight
and it won't end this night

right when you can't turn around it's there
I won't believe in them
or at least I won't care

right when you can't turn around it's there
I won't believe in them
and for sure I won't care

about this breath of gold
of letting myself go
of silence and rain
sunshine and someone to hold
Track Name: Sickness and health
when you were down
you asked will you help me my friend

then I said I'm not your friend, I'm your soulmate
then I said I'm not your friend, I'm your lover

but you said
you can crawl through shit
but you will never fit
in to my life
you can try hard
but you'll never have my heart
because it is mine

then you grew old
and in your sickness and health
you felt lost and alone

then you said I'm not your friend, I'm your soulmate
then you said I'm not your friend, I'm your lover

but I said
I did crawl through shit
but you said I don't fit
in to your life
I did try hard
I could have given my heart
but now I don't give a damn
Track Name: A rock n roll song
walking home
to melt my face
I wrote a song
a rock n roll song

at home
in the shower
I sang a song
a rock n roll song

whatever you say will prevail

after all
I was wet and happy
that's why I sang
a rock n roll song

whatever you say will prevail
Track Name: To withstand the blow
there will be no rain cloud hanging where we've been around
there will be no sound banging our eardrums so loud

cos nothing here will remain
and nothing here will have a chance
to withstand the blow
so be glad if you don't care about anyone
and no-one really cares about who you're trying to be
oh no

there will be no doubt of who is who and who's the ground around
there will echo no shout out of the heretic mouth

cos nothing here will remain
and nothing here will have chance
to withstand the blow
so be glad if you don't care about anyone
and no-one really cares about who you're trying to be
oh who you're trying to be

to withstand the blow

so be glad if you don't care about anyone
and no-one really cares about who you're trying to be
oh who you're trying to be
oh no
Track Name: In comparison
all these so called graces
are wrapped in faces I don't know
lucky I know yours
so all these faces I don't know
seem so lame in comparison
oh they do
seem so lame in comparison

I'm running away
from deep traces
of all the unknown faces
I'm running away
from deep traces

all I taste is
wrapped in faces I don't know
lucky I know yours
so all these faces I don't know
seem so lame in comparison
oh they do
seem so lame in comparison

I'm running away
from deep traces
of all the unknown faces
I'm running away
from deep traces

oh they do
seem so lame in comparison
Track Name: The rain on this day
I walk out the door
a smell makes me adore
the rain on this day
I remember the way
you explained

and hey
today
we'll fall
we'll crawl
but hey
today
we're also more than we can know

I step on the ground
I say it out loud
the rain on this day
I'm scared come what may
so I say

and hey
today
we'll fall
we'll crawl
but hey
today
we're also more than we can know

I'll make things right
by leaving tomorrow

and hey
today
we'll fall
we'll crawl
but hey
today
we're also more than we can know
Track Name: I dug a hole
drawing pictures of my dreams
is like carving dead old trees
the faint smell of sawn off wood
to stop dreaming I think I should

cos all I care of
is going to hell
in those dreams
from what I can tell

cos in those dreams I've been lost just like a seed
on rock solid ground where nothing grows
for crying out loud
and I try to merge with the ground

some time ago it was not like this
then with madness I shared a kiss
I lost control of my poor soul
to be exact
I dug a hole

where I sit
and ponder like hell
about those dreams
of which I tell

cos in those dreams I've been lost just like a seed
on rock solid ground where nothing grows
for crying out loud
it sure is hard being asleep cos I've been lost just like a seed
on rock solid ground where nothing grows
for crying out loud

picture me with you
does it hurt your brain too?
does it seem insane to say
I'd be a father one day?

I don't think I ever will
not because I lack the skill
but because I'm all messed up
hanging around just to rot
Track Name: I will not change
I've built my home
on solid ground
still I'm afraid
I'm so afraid
that I say

I will not change
in any single way
even if you smite me down Lord
I will not change

I've built my home
on solid ground
still I'm afraid
I'm so afraid that I say

I will not change
in any single way
even if you smite me down Lord
I will not change

I won't change my faith
I won't let go this grace
cos in your hands my Lord
I can't say
I've ever been afraid
I won't let go this grace
I won't grow out this phase
cos in your hands my Lord
I can't say
I've ever been afraid

I've built my home
on solid ground
still I'm afraid
I'm so afraid
that I say

I will not change
in any single way
even if you smite me down Lord
I will not change
Track Name: Hit the brakes
hit the brakes
and stop this moment
the blood on my face
is getting cold and I've
never been
so happy and I've
never seen
such light in my life

this is what I have been waiting for a long time

oh how I taste
my withering soul and
oh how I feel
more and more and
my every single cell
is now on fire
I've lost control
I think it's my time

this is what I have been waiting for a long time

now everything I've said
is long forgotten
everything I've done
is long forgotten
everything I've been
is long forgotten
my every single sin
is long forgotten

this is what I have been waiting for a long time
