Track Name: Easy Is The Descent Into Avernus
From that moment time stood still
When you told me how you feel
If only i could...

But then it hit me once, hit me twice
Hit me in the head
Hit me once, hit me twice
Down to my stomach

Where do we go from here?
We've got nowhere to go from here

There will be oceans and thousands of rainclouds
And even more faces to smile or frown
There will be mountains and millions of treetops
And even more people and doubts between us now
Track Name: Contagious Enthusiasm
Slowly I get the feeling going on
That I’m standing too close to the edge
And I keep on turning
Alone in my bed
Slowly I get the feeling going on
That nothing will come close to what I had
But I started wandering
Without looking back
Never look back

Wanted to go out to fuck the world
Ended up just fucking myself

There will be mountains and millions of treetops
And even more people and doubts between the two of us now
There will be oceans and thousands of rainclouds
And even more faces to smile or frown upon us now

Wanted to go out to fuck the world
Ended up just fucking myself

The right time is now
To grow some muscles and wings
Throw myself in the chaos
Without the usual thinking
Was it just my perception of things? No!
It was how I was perceived

And even if I tell the truth now
Would you believe?
No, you won’t

Do I still tend to overthink?
What do I believe?
Do I believe?
No, I don’t

I won’t lie, no, I won’t lie no more
In time
I won’t hide, no, I won’t hide no more
In time

The right time is now
To grow some muscles and wings
Throw myself in the chaos
Without the usual thinking
Was it just my perception of things? No!
It was how I was perceived
Track Name: The Colors You See With Closed Eyes
Things won’t get better with eyes closed
If you can change things, change them
Track Name: Floating On Waves Of Warmth
The night dissolves around me
You turn to liquid right in my very hands
Sure thing, we’re gonna go

Your skin dissolves around me
Your body starts to boil from the touch of my bare hands
Sure thing, I’m gonna take you home with me

You wanna follow me home, don’t you?
We should give it a try, why not

We were twisting like roundabouts
I sink into your arms
Hold you in mine
And I am losing my self-control
Feeling myself erupt
Between your thighs
Track Name: Shadows Clouds Cast Upon Landscapes
Are you really still the same with
New impressions everyday or
Could you burst into tears?
Will it ever be the same
No matter what will come our way or
Could you burst into tears?

No reason to despair
As long as your heart is still beating
The pain is just a sign
You’ve still got feelings
And whatever will come next
You embrace it

Life is but a constant change
Nothing ever stays the same
And I could burst into tears
Death, disease and mortal pains
Send loved ones into frozen graves
And I could burst into tears

No reason to despair
As long as your heart is still beating
The pain is just a sign
You’ve still got feelings
And whatever will come next
You embrace it

But once in a blue moon
You tend to fall back
Back into the deep,
Dark corners of your head
And even if it hurts
Don’t you hold back
Try to let it out
Without shame, without regret

Cause all those tears will give you comfort,
Give you strength to hold on

And even if you’re hurt
Don’t you let go
Open up your eyes
And get back on your feet

Cause all those tears will give you comfort,
Give you strength to not let go

But now they’ll never walk again
And now they’ll never talk again
And she will burst into tears

No reason to despair
As long as your heart is still beating
The pain is just a sign
You’ve still got feelings
And whatever will come next
You embrace it
Track Name: Ascending Onto Mount Taniquetil
In doubt about myself
Unsure about decisions
What does my life mean?
In doubt about my health
Unsure about the future
How will my life be?
And now am i bleeding, i can't tell
My body stumbles forward
What is the right thing?
Found out life is just like ice
Always appeared to me as solid
But now it's melting

And now it's making me feel like i might lose my mind
I don't
I don't know
I just don't know
Not sure
Not quite sure
On how to interpret your laughter

And now it's making me feel like i might lose my mind
I don't
I don't know
I just don't know
Just now
Time has come
Time to man up
