Track Name: Does Anybody Wonder
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
Track Name: I Won't Die
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
Track Name: It's Up To You
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
Track Name: Shot Down
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
Track Name: Working Overtime For Love
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
Track Name: Without A View
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
Track Name: High Than Low
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
Track Name: Happy Now
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
Track Name: Scratch On My Face
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
Track Name: Half An Hour
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
Track Name: Where Do I Belong
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
