Track Name: Leaves in the sun
Leaves in the sun

I will no more, suffer or die for
I swear that I'll not depend on solid earth
Her lifeblood's taste flavors a queer game
A glass of hate, I cannot help but drink

But I will be walking on air
I will be nothing but leaves in the sun, just leaves in the sun
I'm hovering over the edge,
Dreaming I'm burning my leaves in the sun, I'll burn in the sun

Let me fill my eyes until my body dies
I'll be standing here and watch the bleeding
Complicated suffocating
Open up my ties and feel the overrun
I'll be flying over clouds and dreaming
Hope is free just keep believing

And even if it's gonna turn out, this is an illusion
'Cause life is motionless, I cannot help but move
But I will live the dreams I've always had
Try to nail me or stab me or cut me but please,
let me lay out this straight
Open up

Burn and realize that if you gaze and see your eyes are closed you open up your mind and dig where nothing dies nothing grows you
Track Name: Doubts
Doubts

What have we got? What the hell have we done?
We're falling into something that lies over but inside
I just don't even know
will you stay if I go?
I see the future dark, confusion
tell me we're that strong
Where do we go?
Are we losing the road?
I know we're walking forward
but I cannot look behind
I just don't even know
will you care if I fall?
You hit me I was hiding
I was running from my life
But I am alive tonight
I've always wanted better chances to fight and live
to see what future seemed to be
and I'm all right
I'll turn the wheel to fool the speed of light
draining my sight

It's faith and it's time
I gotta believe in what I've found
because all of the truths inside
they're starting to fill my mind
It's great and it's now
I wanna throw away my doubts
because what I fear inside
I know that is all a lie

But I am a lie tonight
I'm underneath the shadow of a plight
I see the hollowness coming out of me
but I'm all right
I wanna kneel and seal the dims of life
inside my eyes

Everything has gone to pieces
Everything that I've believed in
Every sense it made to be here
every doubt was all a lie
Track Name: The Moon and the Sun
The Sun says to the Moon:

"I'm a lonely speaker
in the morning sky
I look around and I
realize
I see the trace of your light
completely gone

I'm a daily dreamer
in the shining night
but I wake up and I
realize
the things I see in my nights
are completely lost

you're so cold that I might freeze
so small that I might trip
I know my heart but I
realize
I saw the moon in your eyes
but now it's gone

I've picked up all these million pieces
only because there is always one left
forever spinning in circle
trying to see you from the start

I'm leaving
you better not catch me if I run
your better not don't tie me down
Because I am leaving
'cause it's now of nevermore
for the moments that I left undone
I believe your end is where I start

I'm a dumb believer
in a smiling lie
I'll blow it up cause I
realized
your dust is all I can find
from dusk to dawn

you're so cold that I might freeze
so small that I might trip
I'll blow it up cause the
reason why
I've made day out of night
was completely wrong

I've been keeping up all these million pieces
only because there was hope at sunset
forever spinning in circle
but now it's time to make it stop

I'm leaving
you better not catch me if I run
your better not don't tie me down
Because I'm leaving
'cause it's now of nevermore
for the moments that I left undone
I believe your end is where I start

I'll blow it up
with everything inside "
Track Name: Ready to die
Ready to die

I won't leave
put this to the nod
you will know the truth
I couldn't care
that was no bargain
but you must know

That I'm running in your veins
when you breath
I'm flowing in your lungs
I am living like a slave
so I'll be the only one

Just ask if you want me to leave
I know y'had something missing in
until we held our hands again
Just ask me if you want me to leave
But I know you won't, I know you won't

'cause I gave my breath when you needed to breathe
and I gave my eyes when you needed to see
I gave my life in this absurd world
yes, I gave my breath when you needed to breathe
and I gave you my heart when you needed to feel
I gave my life under these moons

Thunders roared
It was pouring that night
yes, we made that pact
time could have changed
but he can't be wrong
that gun must fire

I am ready to die anytime at all
