Track Name: Compromise
She wanted to be free,
but only took the weekend of.

He wants to see the world,
and thinks he saw it in the evening news.

We wanted to get out,
but only made it to the park.

We wanted to get out,
we wanted to get out...

He wanted to be strong,
so he went pumping it up.

She wants a different live,
but simply never made change happen.

You think you're somehow free,
but still only do what you are told.

We wanted to get out,
we have to get out!

Don't you see,
that this it not a compromise?
It's giving up your dreams,
and live completely different
- in the end!

When you say yes to something you never even wanted...
When you say yes to something -- and you don't even care!
Track Name: Forced Embrace
Hardly engaged, fake smile,
and needle pinned,
and needle pinned fixed face.

Proper people with wrong jobs
have to take care,
have to take care of you.
No avoiding, no escape
from this service embrace.

And is it just another challenge
to get along with the whole sick mankind?
It is your own fault, it's the revenge.
Why are you such an unsatisfied,
pensive mind?

People you have met before,
are looking up
and recognise you by mischance.
At this moment you're their,
you're their only friend.

And is it just another challenge
to get along with the whole sick mankind?
It is your own fault, it's the revenge.
Why are you such an unsatisfied,
pensive mind?
Track Name: Silhouettes
In a staggering voice she is telling herself
that everything will be alright.
While motions of numbness keep crossing her face
her smile is flawless and bright.

His face made of stone - careless, static and mean
his eyes telling nothing and none.
A glance in his heart: beating empty and cold
emotions so troubled and stunned.

These cries ain't cold
just silhouettes of a fucked up state of mind -
these cries ain't cold
just an impressions of the struggles fought (out) inside

Heavy pills lying still on the verge of the sink
for a glimpse in(to) a world made of gold.
And the state of sedation is embracing her fears
as well as the drugs save her soul.

These cries ain't cold
just silhouettes of a fucked up state of mind -
these cries ain't cold
just an impressions of the struggles fought (out) inside

The love that he feels causes uncertainty
and the fact makes him doubt even more.
Secluding himself in a burst of crude thoughts
is threatening what his heart wishes for.
Track Name: Confusion
Yesterday when you saw me,
all alone down in the street,
looking lost not knowing where to go.

You called my name and when you then,
smiled at me and asked how I am,
I had to stop and I said „fine!",
but I wasn't.

And while you were talking,
and I didn't know what to say.
And I didn't even listen,
cause I didn't even feel like -- going anywhere anyway.

Confusion! Confusion!
like a whole new city,
and nothing to see.
Confusion! Confusion!
like a strange new life,
that never belonged to me.

And while you were talking,
and I didn't know what to say.
And I didn't even listen,
cause I didn't even feel like -- going anywhere anyway.

Confusion! Confusion!
like a whole new city,
and nothing to see.
Confusion! Confusion!
like a strange new life,
that never belonged to me.
Track Name: Thousand Reasons To Change
And your eyes got used to grey that is everywhere,
around you.

And your dreams got bored by the routine and went away,
left you behind and blue.

And you're celebrating a lifestyle where everyone,
in the end is torn.

Cause you come from a generation where everything,
is your fault alone.

Didn't we,
break the glass,
when we climbed your window?
And didn't we,
spell it out for you?
There in big red letters written on your wall...
„There are thousand different reasons to change!"

And your eyes got used to grey that is everywhere,
around you.

And your dreams got bored by the routine and went away,
left you behind and blue.

Didn't we,
break the glass,
when we climbed your window?
And didn't we,
spell it out for you?
There in big red letters written on your wall...
„There are thousand different reasons to change!"
