Track Name: Beelzebub
Tried it again, Adamcos on my mind
Nothing works
Oh brother can you help me
Trapped, a prisoner of time
Here and now
I’m not where I should be

Show me your ghosts
Scare me down to the bone
Here in my castle
Here is my throne

Traveller through time and space
Hoping for the spirit’s grace
Let me fly, let me fly
Track Name: Lakes and Signs
I burned down my bed
so that it suits
the house and people
that make me sick

sometimes I’m wandering through your neighbourhood
trying to find a way I can be understood

I am done and off for something better
leaving here for good this time
the wind, floating breath in the sky
would it cry for me if I died tonight

I’m leaving here for good this time
I tried so hard to get it right
I’m leaving here for good this time
but life’s just not some may or might
I tried so hard to get it right
I tried so hard to get it right
but life’s just not some may or might

I tried so hard to be your one
but what is done can’t be undone
Track Name: Thursday Blues
I, I am a shadow, picking flowers from the fields
Lightning slowly creeping through my lungs
Left my body at the tip of my tongue
Can you feel it in the air, can you feel it?
I get this feeling, I get this feeling
Track Name: Mona Sin
Your taste is still hanging on my tired lips
I’ll bite myself until i bleed, till i turn red
you are the cinnamon on my breath tearing down my lungs

your flowers wilt as i think about
you not thinking about me anymore
or if you ever did at all

did i tell you about the moon
how it shines as bright as you
i put my world in your two hands
but you pulled them away

Do you remember the river?
It must be so cold now, your skin is so cold now

I jump into freezing water, it reminds me of your skin
I am sinking to the bottom, I can't swim

I hope that at the end of the winter your skin will freeze to match your heart
