Track Name: One Second Choice
He got sick, pretty sick
Death sure he will regret all this
He got sick, pretty sick
To see the thing’s eyes open

He got scared freakin’ scared
And rejected the child he built
He got scared so damn
For this he left it all (x2)

Chorus:
See our friend, weak and tired
Destroying his own creature is his life
Hang on, hang on
The fallen angel’s laughing here we are
The Modern Prometheus made a choice
Hang on, hang on

It got worse, pretty worse,
For accidental cowardice unleashed pain,
Dreadful pain
To everything around them

They’re all dead, fuckin’ dead
A wife, a brother aren’t worth it
They’re all dead, ice-cold dead
It wasn’t worth at all (x2)

Chorus

One poor second one mistake
They grew upon the same lie
Hated beast, son fortunate
They’ll die upon the same lie

Chorus
Track Name: Phantoms
Did the feel like anything could ever change?
Frightening empty streets
Human phantoms appear, then gone
Feel the tension, how could they bear what they faced,
Nobody there, nobody there
What will happen if they come?

Pre:
And you, so scared…
Fear for every step
Fear for every step
You closed your eyes but raised your chin

Chorus:
Stand up for your dreams
See the world filling in again
With smiling faces here we stand, yeah
Sow the seeds of grace
From the ashes it grows again
With smiling faces here we stand

Did the feel like anyone would see the change?
Frightening busy streets
Old phantoms appear, then gone
Still some pressure, ready to bear what they faced
Nobody there, nobody there
What will happen when they’re gone?

Pre
Chorus

The old phantoms, gone
If they’re still there let’s break’em all
You’re ready for a change? (x2)

Chorus
Track Name: The Void
Wooden scent, feels electric
Hide out from the world, blow some steam
Step into the void, whisper all your secrets
Someplace where the walls have no ears

Pre:
Head down, the tension mounts
The earth has gone; you’re in your head!
Head up, the switch is on
You’re feeling drawn; your people stand!

Acrid smell, ignoring your stench
Feel the blows, change your mood, feel your fears
Step into the void, scream your deepest angers
This place is all yours, make it real

Pre

Chorus:
We can start this all
No matter what, the sound will feed us
We can start this all
Will you come around and see?
Track Name: Soft Words
Every bit of me is a man, a real one, you know
You’ll be hit but you’ll smile
Do not think I like it, I hate it, it’s ugly but,
Nothing is worth more than pride

You’re not right, coward, never!

Pre:
Soft words make it even, you know
Tomorrow you’ll feel guilt, so much
Trust me, I’m not him, yeah, you know? You know…

Chorus:
Weak or strong
Now you’ve gone too far
Bruises all along
Then you go, then you go

Remember the night, the two lights, the engine, the woods,
I had to make it right
Do not think I loved it, or maybe a little but,
Cannot picture it right

Now you’re out, coward, gone

Pre

Chorus:
Weak or strong
Now you’ve gone too far
Bruises all along
Then you go, then you go
Have you gone insane?
Now look right at her!
You punched her in the face,
She would give you the world, yeeeah

Chorus:
Weak or strong
Now you’ve gone too far
Bruises all along
Then you go, then you go
Have you gone insane?
Now look right at her!
You punched her in the face,
She would give you the world!
For you there’s a place,
And we’ll not be your judges
And you go, and you go…
Track Name: The Host
Come see the world my way
Lend me a piece of time, a minute of your day
I do not beg, I take
You’ll feel another self,
Yeah see the world my way

A ray of light in your boring life
I’ll show you how the sun can shine,
Your eyes
Your all-time sealed mouth
Dirty pale skin
Give it to me

Chorus:
Stay alive,
It’s you the one who’s blind, no, it’s not them
Prepare to feel how the real life is like
And see the world now
Stay alive,
It’s you the one who’s blind, no, it’s not them
Prepare to feel how the real life is like
And see the world my way

Come see the world my way
Accept your other self
Yeah feel the world this way

Your body is yours but your mind is mine
No ain’t no way you can resign to life
Your stubborn sealed mouth
Boring pale skin
Give it to me

Chorus

I know you’re there to steal my eyes
I know you’re there to kill me
Track Name: What do you stand for?
They’ll never see this world they sang,
Misleading anthems
Rich family, kingdoms, virgins, peace, yeah
Then they replace them,
Another lad full of ignorance
Stir up the poor’s dreams for their games

They’ll never see heaven nor hell,
Misunderstood them
Only this world you’ll have to change

Chorus:
What do you stand for,
What is worth my blood or yours to be spilled?
No reason for the dumb
What do you stand for?
Stay away from my own selfish ideals!
Reason, let it go

Don’t take your voices to your grave
Someone will need them
There’s also something such as faith
A scream, a protest,
Another hit to useless violence
Spill everyone’s dreams with your ink, say!

Chorus

Say, are you coming for more? (x2)
What are you dying for?
Say what are you killing for?
Track Name: Seven Seas
Your hand across the shore
I’d give everything for
Magic of your embrace
Please for the end of days
To those who said before
The seven seas are more
I say, believe me there’s
A universe in your neck

The tides, they may stand all against me
I’d cross the ocean again
I don’t fear the storms now I’m ready
I’d cross it once more

A smile I can explore
Sorrows I won’t ignore
Horizons wide open
Come with me, see this world
See me crying, see me grow
Together we will stand
Peacefully make it real

Chorus

You by my side, I found my place on earth, now
Oh they were right, freedom begins with you
