Track Name: Stepping Stone
Woke up one fine morning
Soaked up the blinding sunbeam
Cleaned out the tired ghost town in my head
Feels like I’m left with nothing
Nothing but all of your things
Bite down the silver bullet, no regret

I know, love doesn’t always come so easy
I know, love doesn’t always stay

Wish I had seen it coming
Wish I had heard the rumbling
Wish I had read the fine print and walked away
As all of our favourite past times
All of our spotless headlights
All of our silver linings turned to grey

I know, love doesn’t always come so easy
I know, love doesn’t always stay
Did she tell you, she couldn’t be your shelter
Did she know, you’d be her stepping stone

Watch out the tides are turning
Watch out the clocks are turning
Watch out the bitterness is washed away
Pieces of broken driftwood
Floating in quiet sea pools
All that we’ve ever known has gone astray

I know, love doesn’t always come so easy
I know, love doesn’t always stay
Did she tell you, she couldn’t be your shelter
Did she know, you’d be her stepping stone

Did she know, she wouldn’t have an answer
Did she know, you’d be her stepping stone
All your enemies were looking for shelter
All your foes were ready for home
Yeah even your enemies were ready for shelter
Even your foes were ready for home
Track Name: Solace
Solace, has run out of sight
We’re tired of scanning the skies
Somewhere, beyond the horizon
Somewhere, I know we align

Into now into the foreign land
Into now into the foreign land
Into now into the foreign fire
Oh into now into the foreign land

Oh this is more than desire
Oh but we cannot stop
Oh this is taking us higher
Oh into the strange unknown

Into now into the foreign land
Into now into the foreign land
Into now into the foreign fire
Oh into now into the foreign land

Oh this is more than desire
Oh but we cannot change
Oh this is taking us higher
Oh into the strange unknown

Into now into the foreign land
Into now into the foreign land
Into now into the foreign fire
Oh into now into the foreign land
Into now into the foreign land
Into now into the foreign land
Into now into the foreign land
Oh into now into the foreign fire
Track Name: Shadows
I get shaky when I see the morning light
I get shaky when I see the way we fight
Every heartbeat hits as hard as it can get
But mine is weaker than it was before we met

There are days when I can see the other side
There are days when I can feel that I'm alive
Every demon needs a place to rest her head
Every demon needs a moment to forget

I wanna be better
I wanna be better than this
I wanna be better
Better than my shadow

And now you're saying that it's going to the end
And I have lost the will to argue and pretend
Maybe one day we can see the other side
Maybe one day we can see beyond our pride

I wanna be better
I wanna better than this
I wanna be better
Better than my shadow
Better, I wanna be better than this
I wanna be better
Better than my shadow
Track Name: Shackled Wings
Take your life to the front
Take your sight to the core
Better skies far away
Battered leaves in your way

But hold on
Calm down my friend
We’re going down
But this is not the end

Daylight broke with malcontent
And slowly words of deep dissent start creeping in
In the kitchen sink
A grey skull chuckled with laughter
And I didn’t know just what it meant

I’m flying north, you’re flying south
And both our paths are filled with doubt
I look at us and see that parts of us are perfect
And parts of us are burning out

Hold on
Calm down my friend
We’re going down
But this is not the end
Climb on
I know your back is bent
But keep on grinding
This is not the end

The test of time is strumming on
My shackled wings are going numb
My shifty eyes are searching undetermined sky fields
I know my search has just begun

Hold on
Calm down my friend
We’re going down
But this is not the end
Climb on
I know your back is bent
But keep on grinding
This is not the end

Floating over the rooftops here we come
To settle down
Under the golden winter sun
My fear is gone
And I cannot hear their crying sound
These birds of prey
Can’t bring me down

Floating over the rooftops here we come
To settle down
Under the golden winter sun
My fear is gone
And I cannot hear their crying sound
These birds of prey
Can’t bring me down
These birds of prey
Can’t bring me down
These birds of prey
Can’t bring me down
Track Name: Mind Machine
Drowsy and half-awake
Piles of files on our plate as we type
Words and messages
Lists and figures in our wrists… and we ache…

And we reach for dedication
In a world which likes routine
And we just want liberation
From this massive mind machine

Office chairs and footrests
We’re losing a million sunsets on our seats
Shaking a bunch of pale hands
Running off to the phone which rings… and they talk…

And we reach for dedication
In a world which likes routine
And we just want liberation
From this massive mind machine

Mind machine
Mind machine

And we sing, through the meshes of morning
And we swing, through the rise of the dawn
And we sing, through the meshes of morning
And we swing, through the rise of the dawn
Track Name: Ikarus
Keep your eyes open
One step at a time
We've been caught in time warp
But we'll get out just fine
Heads just keep on bumping
Neon lights astray
We've been moving to these beats until the dawn of day

And in each other's arms
In each other's arms we fade, we fade
And rise as one
As skyrockets
To the sun
On the golden trail of

Let the demons come now
Crawl into our fate
We are just an inch away from tearing down that gate
And in each other's arms
In each other's arms we fade, we fade

And rise as one
As skyrockets
To the sun
On the golden trail of
Ikarus, rise as one
As skyrockets
To the sun
On the golden trail

Rise as
Rise as
Rise as
Track Name: Hearbeat
I will always be with you
Through the pain and the glory
Til’ the end of the story
We keep defying every stormy weather

We were blazing fires
We were free and wild
We were drunken heroes
Always on a ride

Aw, who’s gonna catch ya, is gonna fall
Aw, who’s gonna catch ya, is gonna fall

And then they caught your bluebird
Then they stabbed you hard
All your heavy feathers
Scattered in the dark

Aw, who’s gonna catch ya, is gonna fall
Aw, who’s gonna catch ya, is gonna fall

Maybe we cannot fight it
Maybe I am a liar
But I am here to tell you
That you have entered every single heartbeat

Aw, who’s gonna catch ya, is gonna fall
Aw, who’s gonna catch ya, is gonna fall
Aw, who’s gonna catch ya, is gonna fall
Aw, who’s gonna catch ya, is gonna fall
Aw, who’s gonna catch ya, is gonna fall
Aw, who’s gonna catch ya, is gonna fall
Track Name: Hurricane
Wake me up in a foreign town
Wake me up when the nightfall comes around
Wake me up with your cheeky smile
Wake me up and run with me for a little while
Just for a little while

Shake me up when you're ready now
Shake me up when you've stopped to wonder how
Shake me up cos' I've grown too tame
Shake me up baby all I need is a hurricane
I need a hurricane

Cos' I've fallen out of life
Fallen into disguise
No reason to believe
Reason reasons to breathe

The feeble sound of an auld lang syne
Is like the bitter taste of lemon lime
For when you think of the glory days
You can feel how heavy just that present weighs
Just how that present weighs

I'm being swamped by the daily haze
I'm being swamped by the sorrows in my face
I'm being swamped cos' I've lost my aim
I'm being swamped baby all I need is a hurricane
Come be my hurricane

Cos' I've fallen out of life
Fallen into disguise
No reason to believe
Reason reasons to breathe

Wake me up, take your towering clouds and shake me up, take your towering clouds and
Wake me up, take your towering clouds and shake me up, take your towering clouds and
Wake me up, shake me up, all your towering clouds in rage
Wake me up, shake me up, all your towering clouds in rage
Track Name: Snow Lights
Fight… Fight… Fight… Don’t let the lights go down
Cos’ tonight… tonight… we walk on higher ground

Through the snow fields
Past the carcass of your soul
Through our wasteland
Past the chimneys, through the smoke
Of indecisive, undecipherable undertones
I have loved you
I have loved you
More than you know

Fight… Fight… Fight… Don’t let the lights go down
Cos’ tonight… tonight… we walk on higher ground

Through the star lights
Past the stony shore where we crashed
Through our fire fields
Past the dead ends that we chose
Where we stumbled where we crawled toward the sea
It doesn’t matter now
It doesn’t matter now
Cos’ we are free

Through the snowfields
Past the carcass of your soul
Through our wasteland
Past the chimneys, through the smoke
Of indecisive, undecipherable undertones
I have loved you
I have loved you
More than you know

I have loved you
I have loved you
Now let me go
