Track Name: Lover, Another
Brother, father, she took away my soul
Lover, another, to fill the hole
Brother, father, she deceived us all

If you'll excuse me
I'm still coming to terms
With the tears and the burns, the days into years
With the aches and the yearns

For an explanation this time
For a situation this time
Where I can put you through
Your day in court

Tell me what happened
In more ways than one
Tell me what happened
When we came undone

I thought I was your saviour
I guess you were my curse

Wishing for no more secrets
Wishing for no more weakness
Wishing for a home
I could call my own

These words are a broken promise
But I still see your face like you're lying next to me
I said I was finished
I said I was done
Wasting time on what's dead and gone
But I still hear your voice speak the lies that saved you
But it's not dead
It still exists in every memory
And every regret

Tell me what happened
In more ways than one
Tell me what happened
When we came undone

I thought I was your saviour
I guess you were my curse

This heart grows colder and these memories keep growing stronger
But I still see your face like you're lying next to me
This heart grows colder and these memories keep growing stronger
But I still hear your voice speak the lies that saved you

We're all skin and bone
Just trying to grow old
We're all skin and bone
Just trying to grow old

Backstabbers can only betray you when your back is turned
Track Name: Idols (Rivals)
Stale waters, protecting borders
That last nightmare, keeps us there
The daily routine, crushing the dream
Feels like nothing will change

Scared words repeating, tired old lines
It's written in stone, we're on our own
These quick lies told, as our hearts unfold
Feels like nothing will change

Restless, so goddamn
Restless
Restless, so goddamn
Restless

I asked a richer man
what more could he be
than the man who has everything
and he smiled and said he'd rather be me

I declare to myself
I am content with nothing
Oh to be such a fool
To go on doubting nothing

We must keep on fighting until our idols become our rivals

Stale waters, protecting borders
That last nightmare, keeps us there
The daily routine, crushing the dreams
Feels like nothing will change

Restless, so goddamn
Restless
Restless, so goddamn
Restless
It's all on me

We must keep on fighting until our idols become our rivals
We must keep on fighting until our idols become our rivals

The pressure pressure it's burning down
A lost cause and I'm losing ground
The pressure pressure it's burning down
A lost cause and I'm losing ground

We must keep on fighting until our idols become our rivals

Who will wait for you?
Who will wait for you?
Who will wait for you?
Time won't wait for you

If you had the chance, could you take it?
If the shot was there, could you make it?
If the words won't come, could you fake it?
If you had the chance, could you take it?

We must keep on fighting until our idols become our rivals
Track Name: Hank Moody
Remember, don't believe a word I say,
my heart's in the right place,
but I will lead you astray.

Cross out all of their names
Forget those memories
Start anew
And leave that man behind

Don't think in numbers now
They will just multiply
If you allow
Yourself to stray again

There’s always something about every damn one of you
(A smile, a curve, a secret)
There’s always something new
There’s always something about every damn one of you
(A smile, a curve, a secret)
There's always something new

The sound of your own thoughts
Beat against your head
The last drink kicks in and you remember what was said
About complications
About right and wrong
About how life was short
And the taste of her tongue

The room spins in circles
You don't know her name
The room spins in circles
And you've done it again

There’s always something about every damn one of you
(A smile, a curve, a secret)
There’s always something new
There’s always something about every damn one of you
(A smile, a curve, a secret)
There’s always something new

The room spins in circles
You don't know her name
The room spins in circles
And you've done it again

And I still remember,
all the hopes and dreams of you,
they burn like embers lighting up,
the lonely truth.

At least for a while, you'll be,
smiling for the air.
But it won't make a difference
You won't change your mind
We'll never tell a soul.
Track Name: Amsterdam
A familiar place in a foreign land
Is where we met and started to unwind
The bars were all closed and the night was so cold
The perfect setting for us to lose control

Did the distance
Make a difference?
Did Amsterdam
Make it ok that night?

They call me
The king of the hypocrites
They call me
The death of romance
They don't see
Those smiling guys
They don't see
Those wreckless lies

A familiar face in a foreign land
Is what you were and what I left behind
Alone in that hostel we forgot the world outside
We could never accept that it wasn't our time

Did the distance
Make a difference?
Did Amsterdam
Make it ok that night?

This is for the ones left behind
This is for the one
This is for the ones left behind
This is for the one

Take me back, take me back to that night
Before the damage, let me set it right
Take me back, take me back to that night
Before the wreckage of our wasted lives

I told you that I

Could keep a secret until my dying day, but you couldn't keep it,
you chose to stay

You shouldn't mess with a captured heart, it will come back to
haunt you when death do them part
You shouldn't mess with a captured heart, it will come back to
haunt you when death do them part

Shouldn't mess with a captured heart, it will come back to
haunt you when death do them part

Unforgiveable
Unforgiveable

This is for the ones left behind
This is for the one
This is for the ones left behind
This is for the one
Track Name: I Am The Danger
I don't know why dying alone gets
such a bad reputation, I've been doing it
for over a year now and I'm feeling fine

A little taste of poison on your lips
Will let the night know you exist
No time to think on all that you missed
Just another fake lover's tryst

I don't know why sleeping around gets
such a bad reputation, I've been doing it
every night and I'm yet to see the downside

There's so much to tell you about the night before
When the lights went down
There's so much to tell you about that night
So much to tell you

Proceed with caution, there's some damage,
but don't let that stop your dirty mind
Let those high heels scratch the surface
Let those long lashes blur the view

There's so much to tell you about the night before
When the lights went down
There's so much to tell you about that night
So much to tell you

I've had enough, had enough of lying to myself
I've had enough, had enough of lying to everyone one around me
One more drink I think should do it this time

I don't know why losing your mind gets
such a bad reputation, I've been doing it
for over a year now and I'm feeling fine

We'll walk the low road
We'll show our smiles
We'll make you jealous
With all our lies

We are the ones left at the end of the night
Desperate for someone
To share our cold skin
And tell us, that they are just like us
That they are looking for the same thing
And tell us, that they are just like us
That this time it might be different

I don't know why risking your life gets
such a bad reputation, I've been doing it
every night and I'm yet to see the downside
