Track Name: Friends First
I've been mislead
I thought that you and I were the same
But if there's any chance we could live our lives I'll take it.

We share, way less than I thought
Because one word doesn't make us family

You gotta keep in mind
That friends, music and ideals
Are way more fullfilling
Than being part of a scene

And I'm done boing nice
I'm done taking your shit
And I'm done not being myself.
Track Name: Heavy Shoulders
I woke up today, at peace with everything I said, I did, I lied about lately
Cause in the process, I burned away my past mistakes.
I woke up today, at peace with everything I said, I did, I lied about lately
I burned away my past mistakes.

Exhausted by all the busy lives I live
Bogged down in all the sideroads that I take
I'm causing more harm than I thought
And there's no other choice than having it dealt with
For all the things that I have started, I swear that I'll be fine
Even if I know I screw up sometimes, I'll be going on just fine.

I woke up today, at peace with everything I said, I did, I lied about lately
Cause in the process, I burned away my past mistakes.

I'm not a monster, I'm not a saint
I just can't waste my days away
But in the night I'll be there shivering, I'll be there watching your image crumbling
And I'll be fine when I wake up.

Exhausted
Exhausted
Exhausted, by all the busy lives I live
But I can't think about anything more than « deal with it »
For all the shit that I have started, I'm not sure they'll be fine
But I don't have that many options except going on just fine.

I'm not a monster, I'm not a saint
I just can't waste my days away
But in the night I'll be there shivering, I'll be there watching your image crumbling
And I'll be fine when I wake up.
Track Name: Five Steps to Nothing
They killed me once this day
They killed the hope temporarily
They killed me once this day
They killed the hope temporarily

At the highest, It all fell down
What we built and what we'd lived, vanished in a split second
And I couldn't get the thing
It was leading me, they were not alive in this
How foolish to take this for granted

And I lied awake,
Unable to feel a thing
I smoked the tears away
Then hoping the doubt was still alive
Buried in something

And I went through the five stage
I have cursed them, I trusted them
I tried to make them join again
After quite a while, not believing
The depression lasted longer
I caught a glimpse of my future

When did my life has become my past
I'm not ready to let that rest
When did my life has become my past
I'm not ready to let that rest

They killed me once this day
They killed the hope temporarily
They killed me once this day
They killed the hope temporarily
Track Name: Was That What You Expected Kid?
Who am I ? What's the difference in the middle of the crowd ?
Is there even a slight reason to feel this superiority ?
What does stick out from everyone ?
But what is everyone ?
Is there anything special about...

The man that I've become
Have I really turned into what I pictured of myself as I was growing up ?
I haven't read a proper book, watched a real movie in years
Sometimes I fear the messy half is killing the rest of my time !

Cause this life, I live today
Doesn't allow me, Doesn't allow me
Cause this life, I live today
Doesn't allow to be the person I wanted to be


What would the kid that I was
Think about what he's become
I'm pretty sure he'd be pleased with that turn of events
I just need to reconciliate his dreams with a much more surprising reality
I'm sure I get the best from myself

Cause this life, I live today
Doesn't allow me, Doesn't allow me
Cause this life, I live today
Doesn't allow to be the person I wanted to be

And I'm stuck with an image of myself
Expired for many years
And I'm stuck with an image of myself
Expired for many years
I want it buried away.
Stuck with an image of myself
Expired for many years
I want it buried away.
Track Name: What If This Was Political?
We are a way, we are a feeling. 
We are a change of things through the leaving. 
We are a way, we are a feeling. 
We are a change of things through the leaving. 

We might not get that far,
we might not change the world,
but acting different, thinking different,
it might be a part of it.
We're not wearing any Che sweaters,
we're not making any propaganda whatsoever
and I'd almost say that we don't care. 

We choose a way,
We'll never make a living 
We choose a life.
That's what I believe in now. 

We are a way, we are a feeling. 
We are a change of things through the leaving. 
We are a way, we are a feeling. 
We are a change of things through the leaving. 

Sharing with everyone
that there really is another way
might make a bigger change
than your endless fights between left and right. 

Read different my friend.
Watch different my friend.
Buy different my friend.
Eat different my friend.
Learn different my friend.
Act different my friend.
Live different my friend.
Think.
Track Name: Choices/Feedback
There are so many things that I believe in
And I'm not disappointed
With the way I've changed my life
To get close to each of my beliefs.

I'm getting sick to owe explanations
For the things I chose
I'm getting sick to be the target
Of the same old bad jokes
I'm definitely sick to waste my time
When I talk about it

Sometimes I wanna scream
Leave me alone
But how far am I from selfishness
from cowardness and all ?

I'm far from being on a fucking crusade
I'm trying to change me before the world
But taking these stands brought responsabilities
Track Name: Twelve Cheese Sticks
We were invicible
We were invicible, we were alive
The start of fucking nothing
We were invicible, we were alive
The start of fucking nothing

How many times have I played memories in my head ?
And told them around ?
Past good times are hard to chase away, and not to worship
I cannot refrain, from setlling a frame of reference for what's on it's way.

Wanna be back to where I started ?
Wanna be back to where I stayed ?
Wanna be back to where I started ?
Wanna be back to where I stayed ?
We don't know what we're gonna be
Wanna be back to where I started ?
Wanna be back to where I lost my way ?
We don't know what we're gonna be

Let's fight for, Let's fight for today
No use in chasing yesterday
We'll fight for, we'll fight for a new day
No comparing anything

We were invicible, we were alive
The start of fucking nothing
We were invicible, we were alive
The start of fucking nothing

I won't be back to where I started
I won't be back to where I stayed
I won't be back to where I started
I won't be back to when I lost my way
I know there is more I could be
I won't be back to when I was blank before life got on my way
And I will get along ok with every highlights chasing months of dryspell
I know there is more I could be !

Let's fight for, Let's fight for today
No use in chasing yesterday
We'll fight for, we'll fight for a new day
No comparing anything

We were invicible, we were alive
The start of fucking nothing
We were invicible, we were alive
The start of fucking nothing
Track Name: You Are The Weak Spot
Is that what gaining age's about
I see them all falling down
And waving a burnt white flag
Giving up on so much
Giving on their dream
On what they believe's worth fighting for

I see my world crumbling around
I see betrayal, fear and sadness
Covering those who stood as the pillars of my well-being
And even if the inside is safe for now
The threat is getting closer

Because we all get older
And our boxes of shit pile up
Because we all get older
I swear my friend, we'll all try to get better

I was damn sure I was ok
My silly optimism is
Cracking from the outside
I fear it will get to me
Through you it will get to me
It will make me fall with everyone

Because we all get older
And our boxes of shit pile up
Because we all get older
I swear my friend, we'll all try to get better
Because we all get older
And our boxes of shit pile up
Because we all get older
I swear my friend, we'll all try to get better
Track Name: Interlude
Nope
Track Name: Mea Culpa
I don't know if you still care enough
To listen to me wheep
If you still care enough
To let me take a shot at
Coming back to the way it used to be
Coming back to when I mattered for something else

I'm coming back
I'm coming back
I said it, I said it

Now I know
It drove me away from more than
Life standards career plans or flat thinking
It drove me away from so many of you
And I finally get how badly I missed you.

I'm coming back
I'm coming back
I'm coming back
I said it, I said it
I'm coming back
Track Name: The Sleepless
Everybody slowly sinking into sleep
Everybody's dead wasted and they're barely moving
But we're still awake
We've got more to say
The words stumble on the party, to reach the sense.

Cause there is more to this, more than them
Than every drunk stroy they will ever tell
There is more to this, more than them
More than destruction, we aim for completion.

I'm not sure they know where they're going
And I don't have that many clues about where I'm heading
We won't really sleep, If we're really dead
We'll sleep when there is nothing left to understand.

Cause there is more to this, more than them
Than every drunk stroy they will ever tell
There is more to this, more than them
More than destruction, we aim for completion.

We will always talk ourselves to sleep
And after 3 am.
We'll talk ourselves to sleep to figure out
Who the hell we really are.
(We'll Always)
We'll talk ourselves to sleep to figure out
Who the hell we really are.
(We'll Always)
We'll talk ourselves to sleep to figure out
Who the hell we really are.
(We'll Always)
Who the hell we really are.
Who we are.
Track Name: How High Can You Fall?
One time's enough, it's killing you now
One time's enough, it's dragging us down
No need to ruin your life, there's so much more
Nothing to care about, it's so far gone
One time's enough, it's far too late now.

We all shall fall.

One time's enough, it's all over now
One time's enough, you're haunting this town
No need to ruin our lives, there's so much more
Nothing to cry about, you're so far gone
One time's enough, it's far too late now
We all shall fall.

Keep fighting
Track Name: We're Not Done Yet, Sorry
Born among flowers,
Live in the dirt,
we chase the good,
try to live for the better. 
Live for the better. 
Walking away from what was planned at first,
the edge of understanding is getting closer. 
Is getting closer. 

You may have felt what we believe in,
but now fun's long gone
only remain the smell,
the loss, the waiting,
the uncertainty.
"But where are you fucking gone?" 
I know you get it, I know you support it,
but I still fear that the planned collapse of it all
is just the only thing to keep disappointment gone.

Born among flowers,
Live in the dirt,
we chase the good,
try to live for the better. 
Live for the better. 
Walking away from what was planned at first,
the edge of understanding is getting closer. 
Is getting closer.
