Track Name: siren song
expired in parking lots
hold on to those thoughts you´ve got.
watch out for the siren song
till i get your silence wrong.

move down to brooklyn where the elevators bloom
everything you see, you won´t believe in what they do.
i´m holding on to nothing but I´m holding on to you
and i don´t see how everyone´s misleading.

raise your alarms

we stay in the dark
we´re safe till it´s over
your demons once found
i´ll return when I´m older

this lump in your cheek
decisive and true
and if you´ve been wondering
this siren´s for you

move down to brooklyn where the elevators bloom
everything you see, you won´t believe in what they do.
I´m holding on to nothing but I´m holding on to you
and, i don´t see how everyone´s misleading.

raise your alarms

until your wings poke out my eyes
and we stumble through the night.
Track Name: new england / heavy machines
i want to be the riot in your ballroom
i want to know the reason you leave.
the moth is inside, mistaken the season
while I´m sticking to heavy machines.

i want to be the eyesore in your kingdom
i want to take new england to plea.
no elegant ghost will catch from below
while i´m sticking to heavy machines.

when the demons rush, you are fast asleep
with the ones you left and the ones you keep.
will you sleep at noon for the restless nights
with your shoulderblade and your grace untied.

both your hands of scissors shine still golden
how come i have to watch you from afar?
I´ll keep you in charge, desperate and armed
with the time or the cause, we are one.

when the demons rush, you are fast asleep
with the ones you left and the ones you keep.
will you sleep at noon for the restless nights
with your shoulderblade and your grace untied.

when the ships sail in, i am passing on
to your lighter days and the war we fought.
will the morning sun warm your shivering light
or my bitterness for each coming night.
Track Name: esther
Esther´s in a coma with a ribbon round her mind
they found her in the basement with no note she left aside
like silver dreams in circles while i´m severing the ties,
i´m not severing the ties

daddy was a fascist, left you bruises on your knees
he took you then for granted, betrayed his daughter with the bees
like silver dreams and make up for the shades below your eyes, i´m not severing the ties

A piece of your hair on my clothes, i´ll throw it away
please don´t believe in what they tell you, I´m not the hawk in the rain
with wooden hope and tired smiles, a song to pass the night
like a cat you have nine lives to die

swim out to the ocean, let the current take you there
when you hit the shoreline, drown your head in your despair
your silver dreans are made up, so is the way you roll your eyes
i´m not severing the ties

A piece of your hair on my clothes, i´ll throw it away
please don´t believe in what they tell you, I´m not the hawk in the rain
with wooden hope and tired smiles, a song to pass the night
like a cat you have nine lives to die
Track Name: pedestal
back to where we started,
to each scratch of the moon.
everytime you leave
will be the time you leave too soon.

Let´s hide in other people´s houses,
keep the walls from caving in
and if you open up the door
you hold the key, so let me in.

cover me in purple
i put you on a pedestal
and let you watch the wolves tear me apart.
this night is for the taking
seesaw, but i´m waking next to you
in a bed with crooked feet, that floats along the shallow sea.

dust will set, the coast is clear
i don´t know how it works,
to disarm all your sirens
and start over in reverse.

keep pulling at my hair,
at least that viral way.
so she won´t come to haunt me,
like she did yesterday.

cover me in purple
i put you on a pedestal
and let you watch the wolves tear me apart.
this night is for the taking
seesaw, but i´m waking next to you
in a bed with crooked feet, that floats along the shallow sea.
