Does Anybody Wonder Did you bother legalize crying here What happened to your brother You kicked him down the stairs Do you wonder how much pressure it can take Going under I’m here to roll it up and roll it out again Does anybody like it Does anybody care What’s going on Just like it Does anybody wonder anymore Not worth trying picking out a star at night Better off dying Here to roll it up and roll it out again Does anybody like it Does anybody care What’s going on Just like it Does anybody wonder anymore Does anybody like it Does anybody care What’s going on Just like it Does anybody wonder anymore Does anybody wonder Does anybody wonder

I Won't Die 03:31
I Won’t Die So you sure know what love is Can you still remember mine Things won’t turn the way we want ‘em They’ll never be the same I won’t die unless you want it I won’t leave until you go I won’t die unless you want me to go away No more thrashing over rear views The meaning still is good Take the time for understanding ‘Cause all I want is you I hope you feel it too Hope you do I won’t die unless you want it I won’t leave until you go I won’t die unless you want me to go away I won’t die unless you want it I won’t leave until you go I won’t die unless you want me to go away Don’t go away Please don’t go away I won’t die unless you want it I won’t leave until you go I won’t die unless you want it I won’t leave until you go I won’t die unless you want it I won’t leave until you go I won’t die unless you want me to go away

It’s Up To You Half the world as you can see Hide behind their own personalities Though it’s rough and hard to be Head to the ground and safe from realities Uuh, won’t you grow up and get along Talking will never get things done Nothing can, except you man Wounds will heal but scars may stay Bleeding through one and another day Hoping all your dreams come true As long as they can stay with you ‘til dawn Uuh, won’t you grow up and get along Talking will never get things done Nothing can, except you man Uuh, don’t dare to give up on you No one can tell you what to do No one can, except you man Nothing’s worse Truth may find it’s way It shall open up our eyes to sunny days Uuh, won’t you grow up and get along Talking will never get things done Nothing can, except you man So it’s up to you It’s up to you It’s up to you Do you do

Shot Down 03:55
Shot Down Down by law Just gave away your last best shot Lost your war A worn out heart is all you’ve got You dug too deep Listen to a victims vice You’ve got one chance to prove Before the others give a last goodbye It happened before You crashed to the floor I’m begging you please Stop tripping me Don’t you shoot me down You might get shot down too Don’t you shoot me down Where there are no rules Don’t you shoot me down And play me as a fool Standing up, up against the rest of the world You kept heading for the shore Kept you bleeding even more than before Dug to the end You’ll never get away with this You got shot in the back at night Like a blink of a star It happened before You crashed to the floor I’m begging you please Stop tripping me Don’t you shoot me down You might get shot down too Don’t you shoot me down Where there are no rules Don’t you shoot me down And play me as your fool It might get back to you, yeah you

Working Overtime For Love Living high, feeling low Saying yes but meaning no If all the signs are against me, why wonder There’s you, there’s me in a bound eternally Always knew if it felt good, we’d keep going We should do something A bit more than nothing, we get shoved Don’t keep your distance We’re working overtime for love Keeping straight but couldn’t see Believed in fate, usually If it gets hot and we’re not drinking we can’t cool it A bit of talk and loosened words We querrel lound until it hurts Bending over to untighten, back down This time, time seems done Hold on, don’t let us run We should do something A bit more than nothing, we get shoved Don’t keep your distance We’re working overtime for love Loving you should be worth in trying it Giving in a bit more Loving me hope it’s good enough for you Tell me what to do and i’ll do it We should do something A bit more than nothing, we get shoved Don’t keep your distance We’re working overtime for love We’re working overtime for love

Without A View Streets that keep running away Any time and every place we stay Then find ourselves stuck inside a room Without a view Holding on and on to what we’ve got Keep playing the lottery of luck And all the odds are written in this book Let’s have a look Without a view Without a view With no view Funny how the pointing finger burns You shouldn’t point at all before you’ve learned Spitting words and scratching dignity A loss to see Without a view Without a view With no view I know it’s hard I know, well I can never understand Got born to rock and living it Then turn to dust and sand Don’t wonder why we push so hard But pressure we won’t take no more, no more Without a view Without a view With no view Without a view
7.
High Than Low If I try to know how you feel A broken heart won’t talk, it’s crying Washing dirty hands in your tears The blood on the floor is dry, with memories calling High than low Never try to fly without wings High or low Sometimes you must come down Heard it all before, so why listen Words won’t heal a wound that’s meant to be open High than low Never try to fly without wings High or low Sometimes you must come down If you never learn to stand up in your life The bigger eats the small, cut’s ‘em to a slice High than low Never try to fly without wings High or low Sometimes you must come down High than low Never try to fly without wings High or low Sometimes you must come down, down, down

Happy Now 03:39
Happy Now I don’t mind to sit and wait As time just passes by Even the answers to the questions Can’t tell no reason why Looks like all the things the matter Are flashing off the TV while it screams No I never meant to argue That bothers me the most No it’s not about you or about us Or what we’re going through Well I like to lock myself up In a room where I can be Only me and you and you with me and you Are you happy now Or do you like to be down Are you happy now I’m glad you understand me now In a picture is a circle The circle where we are Looks like paradise fragmented Only a few can join the ride We’re there’s love and hope And words to be told Only me and you and you with me and you Are you happy now Or do you like to be down Are you happy now I’m glad you understand me now Are you happy now Are you happy now Are you happy now Are you happy now

Scratch On My Face Sometimes, days seem to be wasting away Long highways, call it the comfort way to ride Drive along and pour out my heart, down on this road Radio’s on bleeding songs As tears roll down my cheek Like a scratch on my face Sometimes, days seem to be dropping away Far gone, homesick for a place, a place of my own Let me be your favourite waste, wasting your time Let me be the way you want me With tears rolling down my cheeks Like a scratch on may face Uuuuh It hurts like a scratch on my face Uuuuh Drive along and pour out my heart, down on this road Radio’s on, bleeding songs As tears roll down my cheek Lick a scratch on my face Uuuuh It hurts like a scratch on my face Uuuuh Baby, baby bleed with me Uuuuh Like a scratch on my face

Half An Hour 04:35
Half An Hour Did you catch the news today About this girl, who blew up her world Saved herself odd prayers First the matching sparks, they got marked Jumping out of perfection This lonely freak just cut her heart It’s just a natural reflection Walking away to blow it all Time to time, when all comes down About half an hour too late Try to keep the sanity alive Might not get it right in time Rather too soon, to blame it on the moon Sign it on a dotted line You’re the one to blame, standing in the rain Point in this direction Holding what’s new with both your hands It’s a game of selection It can lift you up or put you in the ground Time to time, when all comes down About half an hour too late Try to keep your sanity, half an hour straight Time to time, when all comes down once more Time to time, when all comes down About half an hour too late Try to keep your sanity alive You gotta keep it alive

Where Do I Belong Haven’t you been there Didn’t you walk the way you should Follow advices You shouldn’t follow ‘em barefoot Heading east, heading west Tripping trails along the borderline I know, but I don’t wanna answer the question Where do I belong Trying to reach out Trying to catch it in between It’s standing in front of you But you can’t see if not believe Heading north, heading south Tripping trails along the borderline I am, but I ain’t gonna answer the question Where do I belong Where do I belong Where do I belong Where do I belong
