Track Name: Postcard
Postcard

I'm going to make the same mistake
same thing I did just yesterday
I know I'm running out of time
this is the wrong place for my kind

say what you want to,
I don't care what you're thinking
send me a postcard,
I don't care what you're writing
always been talking about making dreams come true
I won't be there to take it away from you

nobody wanted you to go
even your daddy told me so
but you're so eager in your way
I change the subject everyday

say what you want to,
I don't care what you're thinking
send me a postcard,
I don't care what you're writing
always been talking about making dreams come true
I won't be there to take it away from you
Track Name: Falling Trees
Falling Trees

dark summer, falling trees
dreams hover on ocean breeze
we smiled at times
tending to wonder
and then we sighed and said goodbye
and sobered

my mornings are estranged
my future is around the bend
and days go by, facing this hunger
they always try but I deny
and slumber

feel the wind
it spins you around
take it in and stay on the ground
the coast is clear behind this fear
I never watched it at all

long hours deep within
the anchor is sinking in
it holds me down, underachieving
and all this time it questions my believing

see the jester taking the crown
I can try and turn it around
the falling trees and ocean breeze
we never left them at all
Track Name: Cinnamon Scattered Along Your Shoulders
Cinnamon Scattered Along Your Shoulders

I don’t know what happened
to all the faces I’ve grown
cinnamon scattered along your shoulders
someone else is going to break your phone
someone else is going to break your home

and I had no illusions you tried to watch me before
over the rainbow, above the monsters
try to live your life for better days
try to live your life for better days

must I go through the change?
can’t take off the stains
in your life you never stop, you re-arrange
by the sight of your land
all the flowers must bend
I can smile if you give me your name

striving to be happy I wanna touch you again
wanna escape the nights of wonder
digging deeper holes for me to jump in
digging deeper holes for me to feel

sparkling at the bus-stop
and on the bus you were dead
you were exposed, you morning angel
I shall catch you down and set you free
I shall catch you down and set you free

trust your life in my hands
all the flowers must bend
can I hide in your smile?
can I pretend?
can I have you for now?
can I have you forever?
can I die?
can I die on your land?
Track Name: Night Side
Night Side

I’ll wait on the night side
no one tells me where I should go
I’ll wait on the night side
I’m awake and nobody knows
I’ll wait for the night ride

there’s a party at the edge of town
and everyone is going down
to the prettiest place
where the glitter and lace are on
I will go there another day, another day
to make my way

see the painting on the wall
press a button and I’ll make it fall
when it shatters to tears
of the previous years alone
goes the frame,
oh it’s such a shame, it’s such a shame
but who can blame her after all

with the skeletons of happy clowns
and smaller girls with bigger sons
I’m a little intrigued by the people I chase around
through the town, they will crush you when you make a sound
you make a sound

is it over when the light comes in
when everything begins to spin
and the memories show
that the people they go away
far away

do you say the words you want to say
to make them stay?
Track Name: Clever And Strong
Clever And Strong

full indication of life on a leaf
tell me what you feel when you fall asleep
water and circles and silent TV
grab whatever you need,
what you wanna be

clever and strong
pass along singing your love song
I’ve seen you undressed
I could feel pressure upon your chest

plastic emotion I meant to forget
fell right out of my head
guess I haven’t learned
morning has come in a shape of a tree
sat so comfortably
oh so hard to be,

clever and strong
pass along singing you love song
I’ve seen you undressed
I could feel pressure upon your chest
Track Name: Fortuna
Fortuna

I’m dying just like everyone else
resting at ease
no one comes near
light years from my bed
just like everyone says

it used to be a part of the deal
don’t be yourself
always conceal, don’t feel, just pretend
just like everyone can

you won’t get me now
you won’t get me now
it’s harder when my meaning have no words
might as well give numbers to explain my life
to everyone who thinks I’m odd
nothing’s gonna matter when the bombs will fall
upon us all
and they will fall
nothing’s gonna make me crawl
Track Name: Appollio
Appollio

oh my sweet appollio
I’m tied to your heart
and I wonder if you feel that shivering too, my love
I will never let you go
we breathe side by side
on the bed of our wedding eternity’s ours to hide

see the town is glowing
see the people gathered all around us
see how we shine
I had a morning tonight
and if I only had a second then I’d know
that it’s a lifetime that drifted behind
willing and able to cry

oh my sweet appollio
I promise you now
that the world that you keep will be
nothing but stones and ground
so when the future comes to pass
and horns they will sound
you will know by the siren
the meeting is soon to come

see the town is glowing
see the people gathered all around us
see how we shine
I had a morning tonight
and if I only had a second then I’d know
that it’s a lifetime that drifted behind
willing and able to cry
Track Name: Kill It
Kill It

I bet that you can feel it
now that you kill it
flowers are dying somewhere inside
now that you’re running
now that you’re hiding
keeping behind and swallowing pride
I wrote and mailed her
being a failure doesn’t mean you run a different life

you can hear her heart going on
keeping rhythm over the phone
was there anything going wrong?

and every time I wake up
smearing the make up
lifting the fake up
waving goodbye
I get a feeling during the killing
flowers are dying somewhere inside
and it’s a system programmed by wisdom
you are far away but I’m inside

you can hear our hearts going on
keeping rhythm over the phone
was there anything going wrong?

I’m going by the sideways
taking the highways
riding my bike
I’m a Netherlands guy
but in the evening I get a feeling
I’m going down, I’m not getting high
I’m not as peaceful as I am wishful
you can never have too much in your life

doesn’t matter what’s going on
full is empty when you’re alone
was there anything going wrong?
Track Name: Oh My God
Oh My God

I’ll sit in a train when the night is on
look through the window
straight at everyone
and I’ll know when they feel fine
or just trying to keep their mind
thinking ‘oh my god, what is that all about’

I’ll borrow a smile from a guy uptown
I’ll borrow a secret kept from everyone
and there’s a girl who sits and writes
you can tell that she’s so uptight
thinking ‘oh my god, what is that all about’

and the one at the side,
he’s an older man
rolling a smoke with his tobacco hands
probably thinking of his wife
blaming her for messing up his life
thinking ‘oh my god, I just could do without’

little kid sitting right outside
staring at me, that’s always how he hides
and he knows the ‘whens’ and ‘whys’
and he never wants to say goodbye
saying “I’m your god, you don’t need anyone
Track Name: Highways
Highways

parked by your eyes
hating your every move
feeling your hands, tasting your food
can you believe that I’m not in the mood?
you’re so crazy and weak
and you’re a stranger to me
and it’s true what they say about highways

can you recall the pavements on holidays?
trying to be a part of your home..
when somehow you end up feeling alone
and your story begins with a tear on the chin
and it’s true what they say about new ways
Track Name: Come Get Your Love
Come Get Your Love

two bodies down
my love is wasted
no reward
no reward
I tried to learn
your secret sorrows
all you know
all you know

come get your love

it’s been a while
you keep on heading for the ground
such a cold
such a cold
this is your art
to push away from everyone
stay alone
stay alone
I guess you’ll never know
how much you’re missed
it cuts the soul

come get your love
Track Name: Winston Girl
Winston Girl

I wanna love my winston girl
the crimson tide will bring my pearl to shore
pearls are hard to find
don’t you know
my love grows for unreal girls

and she will smile when we get high
and she will curse and make me cry
she’ll be painting songs
those I’ll write late at night
after we made love

how I wanna meet you now
how I’d love to meet you now
