Track Name: Carousels
swallow all
but my pride
dissapears in the night

picture me
in the moment
of my life
with suprise

what i give
what i need
is in the balance
in the line

all the love
we are trying
to figure it out

in my head
carousels
in my head
carousels in
my head

where everything
about you
rotates
in blurred lines
what i see
some kind of strange
let me stroll
up and down

it's my fault
why can't we be
that again?

but the times
they're changing
hearts they're breaking
down

in my head
carousels
in my head
carousels in
my head


listen up
i will tell you everything
listen up
i will tell you all
listen up
i will tell you everything
listen up
i will tell you all

in my head
carousels
in my head
carousels in
my head
Track Name: Blossoms
in this crush
tens of thousand
explanations
came around and
i was chasing
my bloody part

as we fell
among thieves
and rushing
through these fields
to re-elevate
what is broken now
what is broken now

it's not what you say
but how you say it
it's not what you play
but how you play it
it's like watering stone blossoms

just a try
to spin that wheel
'till i run dry
that's how i feel?
to be a human
after all
things happened
in these days

i hope you're
with me
there are many places
where we could be
but angry clouds
just came around
to find out
what is all about
what is all about

it's not what you say
but how you say it
it's not what you play
but how you play it
it's like watering stone blossoms

it's not what you say
it's not what you play
it's not what you say
it's not what you play
Track Name: Silent Storms
quicken the pulse
in your head
red alert lights decide
which town calls you tonight

quietly and secretly
you hopes could be
smithereens of
these silent storms

shout out loud
sorrows get lost
or get found
these are the visions
you'd dreamed about?

just one look
and i know the fact
the place the place i chase
to get along with you

pronounce the end
i think we shouldn't be friends
and my house of cards
isn't build on solid stands

getting it wrong?
i fell in the dark
eaten by the sharks
and they leave over
my heart

getting it wrong?
and they spit me out
all around the crowd
and they all shout

caught in the fire
and i'm blown away
caught in the fire
and i'm blown away
caught in the fire
and i'm blown away
caught in the fire
and i'm blown away
Track Name: Funfair Illusions
it's a tale of you and i
maybe in some other times
illusions and days before
i see it in another view
while you touch me and hold
the second chance in one of your hands
the ice thaws slowly on
we'll see each other in the other days yeah

rollercoasters
dream them up
might be one of these moments
in weeks you've tried them drop
think it's a rotating one
cigarette smoke in the air
makes one last look impossible
with balloons i stood there
we'll see each other in the other days yeah

when your thoughts begin to turn
you'll never know what will happen
several wishes around
in the train of thought

we are of the same kind
it's like two storm fronts collide
illuminate the night
it's just always you
Track Name: On Reflection
filled
dark gray
space
and we are losing our minds
out of the blue
in here
it looks like
everyone comes alive

need just a tone
to call me up
our feet make a go
need just a move
to make me want to drop
like you do
keep me up now
keep me up high
keep going make a sound
don't let me
hide-out
don't let me
hide-out

tune that shadow
to your vibes
tune those rhythms
to these spotlights
i can see through your
velvet suit

loops play-back
on and off
and favour is a snapshot
of all these
runaways

to perform
like you
to behave
like we used to
seems strange
to all these poeple
in here

swept up
in tries
swept up
in this kind
of reply
just always leave them
wanting more

and you make me
wanna go
and you make us
wanna know
and you make me
wanna go
and you make us
wanna know

need just a tone
to call me up
our feet make a go
need just a move
to make me want to drop
like you do
keep me up now
keep me up high
keep going make a sound
don't let me
hide-out
don't let me
hide-out
Track Name: Avenue
wish me well
handshakes are common
set it on fire
when we all running

but i would change
black streets can swallow
all the truth
which is in colour

our smiles
are now just shadows
and i run i run as fast as i can

but i would change
my tower is crumbling
hold on to me
we try go through

where to?
cut across the avenue
and we run
and we run
and we run
again
where to?
is it right as i do?
and we run
and we run
and we run
again

and we spin around in circles
and getting nowhere
and we spin around the avenue
the lights shut down and
we got nothing
to share
to share
to share

but i would change
black streets can swallow
all the truth
which is in colour

but i would change
my tower is crumbling
set it on fire
when we all running
Track Name: Our Hearts
as your eyes lost it all
your upbeat look
attendance
followed by
moments of silence

vibrations all around
in the hours of being here
as i sat down
the whole ground
is shaking

it's not the talk
which breaks us down
it's not the fact
of having a lack of time

i hope you find
for what you're searching for
i hope these lines
will have a place on both stairs
see you traveling
imagination of reminders
look up the times
will guide us home

and my tries
to answer all
come to nothing
it's some kind of sadness
which overcome

you and me frightened by
the times
they are changing
my fear is
our hearts will breaking


it's not the talk
which breaks us down
it's not the fact
of having a lack of time
and while we are coming
together
and drifting apart
and while we are both
right from the start

i hope you find
for what you're searching for
i hope these lines
will have a place on both stairs
see you traveling
imagination of reminders
look up the times
will guide us home
Track Name: Aurora Polaris
to swim
in polar seas
twice
not cold
so cold cold
as your eyes

blood
creatures
make a run
wipe the
slate clean
that's not what i've begun

to say
there's not a thing
to change
to reanimate
my ghosts
my bloodstreams in my veins

you're not here
and you won't stay
you've been gone
so long
far away

just please
leave a
light on
deep in the dark
deepin your tempting
tone

that was you
who made my head
think right
i'm not ready for this
i'm not ready
for one of your kind

one of your kind
one of your kind
one of your kind
one of your

you're not here
and you won't stay
you've been gone
so long

far away
far away
far away
far away
Track Name: Anywhere
up high
and down low
waves could float me
that's not where i belong

so all reasons
i am here
keep my feet
on the ground
keep my mind off
this town

what i'm trying
is to understand
i'm not going anywhere
what i'm trying
is to understand
i'm not going anywhere
anywhere
anywhere
anywhere
anywhere

make me think
it's still around
can't control me
talk is not right
talk is not wrong

just a step
that i am found
moon far away
just a step
that makes me shout

what i'm trying
is to understand
i'm not going anywhere
what i'm trying
is to understand
i'm not going anywhere
anywhere
anywhere
anywhere
anywhere

and it goes on here
and it goes on anywhere
and it goes on here
and it goes on anywhere
and it goes on here
and it goes on anywhere
Track Name: Half-Light Underneath
waterfalls
so cold it's
crashing
down on it

and you sit
there and you wonder why

fallen trees
sad sight
open-minded
in half-light

back there
they would like to console
they would like to control
they would like to be

when the trap
snaps shut
afterglow
is all i've got

for you
i'll be on my way
i'll be on my run
i'll be there underneath

when i see it all
when i see it all
when i see it all
when i see it all
