Track Name: A Departure
Echoes from outer space
Whispers that tell me sins
I’ve dreamed of the time I killed for you
I give and I give and I give but I lose
How’s it feel to dance
Now there’s no one left outside?

You looked to the edge
You found nothing in your chest
You let it go
So goodbye and so long

Our trust has been starved
We used to be close but that time is too far
I remember the talk that hid a lie
I try and I try and I try but I can’t
Go on anymore
Not as it was before

You looked to the edge
You found nothing in your chest
You let it go
So goodbye and so long
Track Name: Over and Out
We broke the sacred pact
I think I’ve had enough
The sun doesn’t shine back and I’m on my knees
Nothing you say could change this
I took for granted our agreement
We were looking for different meanings
I’ll take things as they come
I’ll take things as they come to me

When I feel low I just need to hear a song I know
Read its words and make them mine
See the ladder from which I can climb

I know that I can do
This living on my own
We’ve gone too far I wanted something more
As hard as it is I survived before
I’ve been thinking if this is our fate
Is it the end of our fairy tale?
I’ll take things as they come
I’ll take things as they come to me

When I feel low I just need to hear a song I know
Read its words and make them mine
See the ladder from which I can climb
Track Name: Eraserhead
I don’t want to live here anymore
All my life is such a bore
It’s been a while since I realized
That everything can not be fine
And it’s odd
Skin, flesh and bones
This heart’s not made of stone
I must accept that we’re done

I think I’ve had enough
I’m trying to erase you
We didn’t want this but it’s what we need
I’m by myself and I feel helpless
You’ve been that selfish…

I don’t have to leave anymore
I’ve healed my wounds I’ve made my peace
Wasted nights thinking what went wrong
When all I needed was some time for me
Blue-green eyes, a frame and a song
See her there she steals air from my lungs
I hold my breath until the pain is gone
I know how to swim ‘til I reach the shore

I think I’ve had enough
I’m trying to erase you
We didn’t want this but it’s what we need
I’m by myself and I feel helpless
You’ve been that selfish…
Track Name: The Great Delusion
I live in the past
Where I left my heart
I remain on memories of a better time
I got a ghost that I can’t escape
Every day is just like the rest
What is my goal now?

Do you ever feel like your life is turning to something you never intended?

I have to skip over our songs
Cause it’s too hard to feel we were so close
Now I got nothing to sing about
There’s no room left to scream and shout
How will I heal my wounds now?

Do you ever feel like your life is turning to something you never intended?
Track Name: Hopeless Ghost
I know somehow I’m lost
The spark in my eyes is gone
Is it a lack of hope or is it we’re just done?
The fire that used to light my way
It has burned our fate
Well, get set
It’s time we come to the end
From, now on
Will I be asking myself
If I was wrong
When I didn’t find the words to go on?
The strength to go on?

So now I’m drowned in the lake
Where my doubts know how to float and swim
And you all know that I’m in love with this pain
I’m used to make love to the same mistakes

I had faith in us but we self-destruct
I’m losing my voice and my stomach hurts
I dug a hole in the sand to bury my heart
To bury it with my own hands

There’s no hope here
There’s no way
I got these lyrics that I need to explain
There’s no hope here
There’s no way
All that’s left is the weight of my mistakes

So now I’m drowned in the lake
Where my doubts know how to float and swim
And you all know that I’m in love with this pain
I’m used to make love to the same mistakes
Track Name: Lost Tape
This is the only way I know to close chapters
All I’m trying to do is get my feet back on the ground
These are my ghost tapes, these are my heart songs
I’ve always kept locked
They’ve always been lost
