Track Name: dark fireworks
you live your life in stagnation
i´d rather do the same
we drive with no direction
we travel with no sake

we got a one-way ticket
let´s go head-first to hell

they say there´s a fire
that will get our eyes to glow

sometimes theres nothing more than giving up
when acceptance leaves you alone
we´re searching for a reason to go on

these lines might never change our sight
these time we better change your minds
that burn as one to light the night
let´s hold on tight to what burns bright
Track Name: hold on tight
i am hanging by a thread
just singing about what's on my mind
will you please come up close so no one's listening
this is what i have to tell you
please don't take it too seriously
you are so twothousandsix
and that year just made me sick
and i hold on to every word i said and i hold on
this is who i am and who i'll always be
this is who i am
so i hold on
sometimes life lead astray
i‘ve walked this path a countless times
i never thought I'd see that shit
these times i won't forget
you‘ve blamed yourself to be someone
i‘ve blamed myself to be no one
everybody's blaming you now this is what i‘ll do
and i hold on to every word i said and i hold on
this is who i am and who i‘ll always be
this is who i am
so i hold on
your entity is nothing more than a mask
that is falling down while you‘re getting old
your black colored hair is now washing-out
your whole disguise disappears
Track Name: don´t tell me what i can´t do
my mood turns from bad to worse when my ears got
hit from your words
I stumble and fall like sonny liston
I should have known I should not listen
you draw the line – I cut it out
you´re the new taste – that I spit out
you´re like a giant monkey on my back
my heart is racing – like a heartattack
right now I should have been to hell and back
but i´m stuck in the middle
and can´t get back on track

when you would kill for a good night sleep
I will be hiding all the sheep and kill them
and sell all the meat
for good profits
Track Name: now hell(o)
see it feel it we are losing devotion
in a time when we get used to stand alone
see it feel it i still can‘t be a part
until the end we'll always be apart
keep it up – keep it up
don‘t let the past overcome – overcome
i see it all coming down – keep it up
don‘t let the past overcome
this story won‘t end for sure
Track Name: a world without polarbears
can you say goodbye to all the things you´ve loved
renouncing everything is the burden to carry
we´ve lived regardless until there´s nothing left
to be proud of and to save
and I don´t want to blame nobody

but we´re living in a time where time is up
the clock will take its final round
our has taken its toll
we´ve waited too long to change anything

you say that you couldn´t care less but you think
you are the only one who wants (to own) everything
you say that you could´nt care less but
your are the one I really want to blame
