Track Name: 12th Floor
That's the time to realise
How it could have been
Another time another city
Past childish disease

Better than elswhere
Far from wandering eyes
Higher than what I need
Twleve floors above

Standing by the window staring through the glass
Too much of a choice is not always a chance
Greedy mist covers up my naive mind
Since July

Standing by the window I understand
I've been waiting for this too long
Times changed good moments last
Since July

In the morning there is hope
Sun sets it all begins
Another place another thrill
That's what I've become

On twelfth floor I'm standing
Hidden from threatening gaze
Don't think of falling
It won't happen today

Standing by the window staring through the glass
Too much of a choice is not always a chance
Greedy mist covers up my naive mind
Since July

Standing by the window I understand
I've been waiting for this too long
Times changed good moments last
Since July
Track Name: That Evening
In this warm evening
Something is clearly not right
You don't know why

Surrounded by darkness
City of cold dimmed lights
You could run from fear

This day took me by surprise
All I hear is silence
Please guide me where it's safe

In this mid-summer
This could be a new love
But now ain't the time

Turn off the lights now
Let's go to sleep good night
Tommorow I'll be fine

This day took me by surprise
All I hear is silence
Please guide me where it's safe
Track Name: Pouring Lies
Autumn wind is blowing vaguely
I am the whsiper
Leaves dancing sadly around the tree
Turning into a scream

Will these voices satisfy
They surely take their time
I'm ready to give in
Leave your home the morning came
Unconscious walk into the pit
Repeating day by day

Springtime sun is glowing bashfully
I am the gossip
Inside me good times that are gone for good
Becoming a yell

Will these voices satisfy
They surely take their time
I'm ready to give in
Leave your home the morning came
Unconscious walk into the pit
Repeating day by day

For years to come
For years to come
For years to come
Years will lie

For years to come
We defy our souls
Our souls and hearts

We are the strain
We are the fallen
Fallen stars

We are the rain
The rain is pouring
Pouring lies
Track Name: December
All days have passed welcome December
Silent tears in these eyes
Waiting for the last gasp around you heavy rain
Bleak are the events beyond this day

But still the years go by
Bent our backs, heavily the burden lies
Diffident dreams remaining broken in the dark
Safe heaven where nothing can be harmed

Don't shed a tear
For what cannot be undone
Blurred stories left behind
Life is inevitably going down

Yet so oddly smells the air as 31 arrives
Heavy torment calms in abrupt memories
"Could I live just one day more?"
