Track Name: Detuned
I’m coming for you and I can smell your fear
I’m coming for you and I feel that I’m getting near
I’m coming for you, don’t you try to hide
I’m coming for you ‘cause I wanna make you feel alright

And when I get you, I’ll make you see
Everything that you ever wanted was to be with me
And when I get you, you’ll realise
All you ever needed was to look deep into my eyes

And it’s been so alone
Without you here, all on my own
And every part of me is filled with longing

I’ll set you on fire, gonna make you cry
Do things that you’ve never even dared to try
Strip you of the shreds of your dignity
I’m coming for you
Take you places you have never been before
Smash you into pieces, make you beg for more
Beat you to a pulp till you worship me
I’m coming for you

You may think you’re immune to my disease
But soon you’ll find that I always end up doing what I please
They say that love will always find a way
But I’d choose to use my own methods any day

And I’ve been so afraid
Out in the dark, all by myself
But I promise you, I promise this ain’t over
It ain’t over!

I’ll take your hand, I’ll guide you home
It will be fine, I’m coming for you
I’ll keep you safe, I’ll keep you warm
I’ll make you mine, I’m coming for you
Track Name: Thirteen
Cut me open
Take a look inside my mind
Pick up the pieces
See what you can find

I’ll make you nervous
I’ll make you see my inner child
Hand me the car keys
Gonna drive you wild

What if I said it all meant nothing?
What if I said it wasn’t real?
Maybe you were misguided
Maybe I was sincere
Maybe now we’re done for real

Stop your whining
I’ve had enough of your complaints
Shut down your feelings
Let your conscience fade

Just take it easy
There’s no need to get upset
Don’t be so queasy
Better just forget…

Tell me something I don’t know
Can’t you let your feelings show?
Won’t you tell me what’s the deal?
Are we done for real?
Track Name: A Confession
You’ve taken leave of all your senses
And the anger piles up inside
You’ll need some time to think it over
Once you’ve swallowed all your pride

Then somebody told you,
You’ve read all the papers
You think you’ve got it all figured out
But you’ll never really get it anyhow

I must confess
I don’t really know what you meant to me
And I have to say
You’re not quite all you’re cracked up to be

You’re a needle in a haystack
There’s not a lot like you to be found
A distraction made in heaven
When there’s someone else around

Well, I was blinded,
Lost in confusion
Trying to find the right part to play
But I could never truly love you anyway

I must confess
I don’t really know what you meant to me
And I have to say
You’re not quite all you’re cracked up to be

You toy with the way I feel
You push me away
You make me believe it’s real
Then you’re gone another day

And I could never truly love you anyway
And I could never truly love you anyway

I must confess
I don’t really know what you meant to me
And I have to say
You’re not quite all you’re cracked up to be

You tease me with your promises
You leave me behind
But I must confess
I don’t really know what you meant to me
Track Name: What You Wish For
It’s been such a long long time
Since we first met
And something changed inside me
It felt so new, yet so familiar
The picture was so sublime
And though you said
The road was long and winding
A better place was waiting at the end

Sometimes I still wonder how
It passed us by
Hey, maybe it was worth another try

I thought I could fly so high
And make my way to you
And somehow I felt you could be my saviour
I wanted to reach so far
But didn’t have a clue
You always should be careful what you wish for

Strange how it all turned out,
It’s so bizarre, but in a way so perfect
A blinding glow surrounds our bodies
Skimming through fears and doubts,
The cuts and scars and all the time we wasted
Sometimes you need to leave the past behind

I thought I could fly so high
And make my way to you
And somehow I felt you could be my saviour
I wanted to reach so far
But didn’t have a clue
You always should be careful what you wish for
Track Name: Hanging On
You've stayed away from me for days and days on end
You leave me staring blankly at the ceiling
Still I go on like this, just trying to pretend
There’ll come a day when you reckon with what I’m feeling

Everyday I get pushed away
You gotta start making your mind up
You can’t just leave me hanging on forever
Everyday it’s the same old game
I really don’t think there’s a way out
Yet there’s something deep inside
That makes me carry on this silent fight

And when the night comes and I touch you like I do
It feels like you’re hiding behind a wall of ice
Wish I could get through but it all comes down to you
‘Cause there’s so much about it you don’t seem to realise - no!

Everyday I get pushed away
You gotta start making your mind up
You can’t just leave me hanging on forever
Everyday it’s the same old game
I really don’t think there’s a way out
I won’t take this anymore
I guess it’s finally time you knew the score

I bet you’ve never seen it coming
I bet you thought I’d never say anything
But all I need from you is to tell me
Exactly how it’s gonna be

Everyday I get pushed away
You gotta start making your mind up
You can’t just leave me hanging on forever
Everyday it’s the same old game
I really don’t think there’s a way out
Gotta face the truth sometime
Better leave all of this mess behind
Track Name: If All Else Fails
Another day, another disappointment
You struggle so hard just to make it real
You never seem to handle all your problems
You walk on broken glass with your bare feet
Remember not to get your hopes to high
Or you can kiss your sanity goodbye

I’ve had enough, I just don’t care
And often I’ll ask myself
Why do I even bother?
But when times get rough and life’s not fair
And even if else fails
We still have each other

And every coming challenge
Will always question what you came to be
I guess I’ll have to find an inner balance
A soothing voice that lives inside of me
So nourish all the things you love the most
Whatever happens don’t give up the ghost

I’ve had enough, I just don’t care
And often I’ll ask myself
Why do I even bother?
But when times get rough and life’s not fair
And even if else fails
We still have each other

And the pain is fading
All shadows disappear
And the blues are ending
A new day begins

And the tide is turning
And the black gives way
The old fire’s still burning
Everything’s OK
Track Name: A Shot In The Dark
Openly heading for the light
You’re growing stronger by the day
You grab hold of anything you like
‘Cause nothing could get in your way

I set the world in motion
But nothing transpires
No traces of emotion
Or hidden desires

You’re paving the way
And you’re making your mark
But when the push comes to shove
You’re taking your chance
With a shot in the dark
I hope you’ll come through like the star that you are
I hope you’ll get lucky this time

Stories and lies inside your ears
Combine with words that ring so true
All sense of balance disappears
But none of this seems odd to you

I’m looking for directions
Devoid of illusions
But distant recollections
Reveal a conclusion

You’re paving the way
And you’re making your mark
But when the going gets tough
You’re taking your chance
With a shot in the dark
I hope luck will find you wherever you are
I hope you’ll be happy this time
Track Name: Oysters & Sirens
Watch the stars glowing in the south
Overturned, I hold my hand to mouth
I miss my sky above the London rain
And bright frontiers beyond the Milky Way

So I took a ride for 300 days at sea
And hoped one day in June in grace you’d follow me

An avalanche storming through these walls
Made of glass, she’s flying as she falls

Firefly dreams – oysters and sirens
Like spiders throwing fire at the sun
That’s all I need – oysters and sirens
Those light years trying to find a higher ground

Just been born, I learn my mother tongue
Mesmerised and doubled up in love
I want to be your light so talk to me
Or find me someone new I’d rather be

The blood of me and sugar in my paper cup
A ruby red bird slowly turns from blue to black

Enough to heal – oysters and sirens
Come walk this world with me like lovers do
Just drink it in – oysters and sirens
So say something and I will sing you through
Track Name: Can't Get Connected
Reaching out to the darkness
Reaching out to the void
You try to flee from the gruesome scenes
And the future you’ve destroyed

You can’t sleep when the night comes
Got no way to unwind
You just can’t deal with the way you feel
‘Cause you’re scared of what’d find

Time flies, the years go by
But you’re still left here high and dry

All of the things you did
Make you tense and disaffected
You can’t chill out and can’t slow down
But you still feel so rejected

And all of the thing you’ve seen
Make you feel so unprotected
You hide behind your perfect smile
But you just can’t get connected

And now it’s time to go hunting
Cold and dry like a stone
You have your way with another girl
But you still feel so alone

You keep looking for comfort
Keep searching for thrills
Desperate never to come down
From all the alcohol and pills

Can’t lie, can’t pretend
You’re stuck like this till the bitter end
Track Name: Pale Into Insignificance
You feel a vibe that stirs your senses
Some kind of magic in the air
Like a lucky star that could guide you so far
To the frontiers of your vision, anywhere they are
But this time I feel that nobody seems to care

We pale, pale into insignificance
We strain our hearts till our blood runs dry
But nobody cares
So we pale, pale into insignificance
We tear our souls for our stupid goals
But still nothing’s changed

They say you’d better stop your dreaming
Before you waste your life away
Well it all goes down to what’s deep in your heart
To the fire in your belly desperate to get out
But this time I know I’ve got nothing more to say

We pale, pale into insignificance
We strain our hearts till our blood runs dry
But nobody cares
So we pale, pale into insignificance
We tear our souls for our stupid goals
But still nothing’s changed
No, nothing's changed

So we pale...
