Track Name: The Regrets of the Dying
Look at me,
I've become who you want me to be.
Is this what you want?

Shame on me,
I could have been much more clear than i was,
but i stayed in silence,
and i took the wrong way.
The easy path was always my first choice.
I could not face the truth.

This is not the end.

My journey is due to end,
Just hold tight to my hand.
There's no need to be upset,
I'll keep those eyes with me.

Pardon me
I never was someone special at all.
I was just made that way.
Frail and week,
that was me.
Always waiting to fall.
I never asked for favours
I never made a question.

The easy path was always my first choice,
But hey, we still got time.

This is not the end.

My journey is due to end,
just hold tight to my hand.
There's no need to be upset,
I'll keep those eyes with me.

Take me back, let me avoid a disgrace.
Take me back,
just take me back.
Take me back, let me show you i've changed.
Take me back,
just take me back.

This is not the end.

My journey is due to end,
just hold tight to my hand.
There's no need to be upset,
I'll keep those eyes with me.
Track Name: Mirrors
Could you stop pretending to be someone else?
I barely recognize you,
When did all begin?

You keep trying hard to look act like someone else,
Let me tell you it didn't work,
Listen, are you till there?

Take off your mask and show me then.

I Always thought is was much easier.
I can not hide it,
I start losing myself.
Call me back if you are hearing those sounds.
I can't deny I'm feeling lost and upset.

Carry on,
carry on now.

"There's a small balcony here,
the door is open and i can see the lights
of the cars on the Harbor Freeway south, they never stop,
that roll of lights,on and on.
All those people. What are they doing?
What are they thinking?
We're all going to die, all of us, what a circus!
That alone should make us love each other but it doesn't." Charles Bukowski

I Always thought is was much easier.
I can not hide it,
I start losing myself.
Call me back if you are hearing those sounds.
I can't deny I'm feeling lost and upset.

I Always thought is was much easier.
I can not hide it,
I start losing myself.
Call me back if you are hearing those sounds.
I can't deny I'm feeling lost and upset.

You breathe through the broken glass.
Track Name: The Distance
You gotta turn around.
You gotta move much faster.
Don't trust anyone,
It will be so much nicer.

You gotta live your own,
your own disaster.
you gotta make it worth.
You gotta choose an answer.

You gotta fix this up.
You gotta buy me a castle,
Then i could leave this town,
and i could waste my chances.

All i need is somebody to lean on,
(I'll take my chances)
All I see is nothing compared to you,
(And that means something).

They're coming after me.
I should have known this.
I have to carry on,
you should have noticed.

Staring at the sea,
It's how i deal with the ghosts i left behind.
The doors are closing.

You know is getting dark,
you gotta think 'bout something
You are far but close enough,
you gotta keep on walking.

All i need is somebody to lean on,
(I'll take my chances)
All I see is nothing compared to you,
(And that means something).

They're coming after me.
I should have known this.
I have to carry on,
you should have noticed.

Staring at the sea,
It's how i deal with the ghosts i left behind.
The doors are closing.

They're coming after me.
I should have known this.
I have to carry on,
you should have noticed.

Staring at the sea,
It's how i deal with the ghosts i left behind.
The doors are closing.

They're trying to rip me off.

The doors are closing.
Track Name: Steps
Take all the courage you need to comprehend this,
Time is the only thing we both know I have left now.

There's nowhere you can hide,
They'll find you anyway.

Time is the only thing we both know I have left now.

There's nowhere you can hide,
They'll find you anyway.

Don't look back.

Prevent collisions,
This coud be the end.
Let's find out what you saw,
just give me a face.

Don't look back.

What's the solution?
When is all going to end? When?
I've never known what's wrong or what is real, not yet.

There's nowhere you can hide,
They'll find you anyway.

Time is the only thing we both know I have left now.

There's nowhere you can hide,
They'll find you anyway.

Don't look back.

Prevent collisions,
This coud be the end.
(Hear me now)
Let's find out what you saw,
just give me a face.
(Hear me now)

Don't look back.

Prevent collisions,
This coud be the end.
(Hear me now)
Let's find out what you saw,
just give me a face.
(Hear me now)

Get up now.

There's no place left to run,
You ruined that chance.
Track Name: The Escapist
I'm just a vision,
Not only a whisper.
They cannot stop me.
You'll be fine.
I need to go now,
don't ever say goodbye.

I'll take my chances,
you know my reasons.
I can't just go back.
Do you understand?
They will not scare me,
I'm not afraid to die,
when's my funeral?

I'm just a dreamer,
you are a monster.
I'm gonna die but it feels just fine.
I guess i know you,
I saw you in the dark.

Yeah, i saw you in the dark.

Fight for your rights until you loose your faith.
Don't take a step back,
do not feel ashamed.

Stand up right now,
this war's not lost.
I'll show you how,
If we stay close they won't try anything.

I'll show you how.

Yeah, i saw you in the dark.

Fight for your rights until you loose your faith.
Don't take a step back,
do not feel ashamed.

Stand up right now,
this war's not lost.
I'll show you how,
If we stay close they won't try anything.

I'll show you how.

Fight for your rights until you loose your faith.
If we stay close they won't try anything.

I'll show you how.
Track Name: If I'm Gone
Light shines brighter now,
Am i still with you?
Say you love me again,
I''m not leaving you.

This is something no one would expect at all,
Tell me, was i good enough?
I have tried so hard,
Can't you see it's done?
Don't forget this if I'm gone.

Has it finished yet?
Tell me something new.
It might not be the same,
I can''t believe it's true.

This is something no one would expect at all,
Tell me, was i good enough?
I have tried so hard,
Can't you see it's done?
Don't forget this if I'm gone.

This is something no one would expect at all,
Tell me, was i good enough?
I have tried so hard,
Can't you see it's done?
Don't forget this if I'm gone.
There's a lot to forgive
But the good things will last.
Tell me did you fall apart?
I have tried so hard
To deserve your love,
Even if i fade to black.
