Track Name: 21%
Demons find out where you are
There are not so many places you can hide
You know it’s yours the name they’re calling
You know they’ve got a problem with the way you’re dolling up
You’re screaming out
“Buy me I’m for sale
and I’m off a 21 percent"

Teach me anything
Before you get my hopes to run aground
At least tell me your name
So I cant stop to wander all around

I pretend that I want
The other half of my soul to reunite
But I’m searching for a face
Just to get me through another night

I wish I was smarter, to put a thought inside your head
Begins only with chit-chat, then it ends up in my bed
Future’s brighter, if you just opened up your brain
Don’t look at me as if I were a monster
Get upon this roller coaster

Are you feeling nervous?
Am I being cool?
Do you have any objections?
Am I overruled?

I wouldn't lie to stick with you
(you don't want to know)
I never actually said love

I’m moving faster trying to reach the other side
And somehow I’m not frightened anymore
I’m learning magic tricks to show you you’re alive
You find newer reasons to ignore me

Time might stop or it may flow
Yet I’m not exactly sure ‘bout where to go
I know it’s your scent that I follow
I know the time has finally come to face the tide
I’m giving up
I’ll get into your nest
But I want my 21% off
Track Name: Piano Upbeat
Please forget the reasons (why) you're upset
let's forget this while we can
there's nothing I can do but make you cry
there's nothing I can even say...

Faith should’ve grown but it's somehow never shown
Paranoia suits you well
If you could see, the problem is not me
I’m chasing butterflies in hell

Take me there!
How much can you take back?
(You) waste your breath
At least I'm trying
Take me there!
I can't believe it's time to go home...

This talk is dead, but there's so much more I dread
The pain you deal can turn me on
When all is said I feel I clear my head
I'm heading back to where I belong

Take me there!
How much can you take back?
(You) waste your breath
At least I'm trying
Take me there!
I can't believe it's time to go home...

An overdose of thinking
And now we're bound to sink
breathe in an eye-blink
Hold on

But if we stop to think
Our egos start to shrink
And our thoughts in sync
Move on
Track Name: Equivocado del Río
En el lado equivocado del río
Suelo mirar a la nada
Apretando mis puños

Todo pasado fue mejor
Presente - interrogación
Las respuestas se alejan
mientras yo este en el lado
equivocado del rio...

Nunca hay donde mirar
Ni un alma que estrechar
Es tarde para pensar

Todo pasado fue mejor
Presente - interrogación
Las respuestas se alejan
mientras yo este en el lado
equivocado del rio...

200 millas de casa
Muchas más de una respuesta
Nada puedo cambiar
Mientras yo esté en el lado
Equivocado del río...
Track Name: Minimal damage
How many times have you laid
in love, in chains? you let yourself burn
it leads you not to care
You don't fight, you let it happen
lies, sometimes desire
you never learn...

You know, sometimes she names
autumn, house, kids, glory, a valley...
She never pushed rewind
didn't find you bleeding half-awake
don't say she lives
in a song forever, ends up better
'cause you don't heal

"If chance is using me then it won't hurt"

How many times does your head say
"Get out, love is dead and hollow"?
She'll wake up too late
Because you're going any Sunday night
And yet, you doubt
"should I even be here?
you don't need this
it won't hurt"

“If chance is using me then it won't hurt
If chance's a shadow make it burn me
letting you be reborn...”
Track Name: Stage
In 35 minutes I'll be willing to show my face
I'm pushing my limits and deep inside I know I can

I wanna show I'm alive (it's a chance to)
'cause nothing here seems worth the ride (rearrange your)
except her eyes (rights to stay and)
they're a doorway, a ticket to (leave your wrongs)
the other side... (aside...)

Run for your life
all the signs I'm giving, but all I'm receiving are dimes
it's not enough to show my will to survive

How can I explain to you
in a way you understand?
Some things could be simpler
if we keep it underground

ok, I'm willing to try (it's a chance to)
the time is here, the place is now (rearrange your)
the dance began (rights to stay and)
tonight we'll do the old one-two (leave your wrongs)
but then you're gone (alone...)

Every time you're near I tend to lose control
And my self-esteem wakes on the bathroom floor
I waste my time

Time to wait now
Time to hold your fire

Run t-t-towards the light
I thought I was leading, but I'm just a part of the crowd (she's so strayed now)
And tonight
All the signs received are lost

Every time we're lost we crawl to find the way
And when the lights are on, in dreams is where
we wish we never stayed

Time to wake did never come
Time to wake up, time to break the tide
Track Name: Mary Jane
I don't know you, Mary
to be sincere, sometimes
I get freaked-out when we dance
You sabotage our marriage
'cause though I hit the spot
I don't please you every night

I try to leave you satisfied of me
Everyday, although I die.
You're the lead, you're every sign for me
shall we seal a perfect time?
