LYRICS: As they opened the gates, they pushed you out Alone and freezing with nowhere to go but here. How do you feel? How do you feel? And where do you go with nothing left behind? I close my eyes and see - you were never ever meant to lose it all I close my eyes and feel – you will never come back and take the fall Your legs – they move and the ground underneath starts to shake again What are you running from? And where do you go with nothing left behind? I close my eyes and see - you were never ever meant to lose it all I close my eyes and feel – you will never come back and take the fall What are you trying to seek? There is only woods in that direction.

Past Perfect 03:09
LYRICS: When I rewind I know I can’t rely on any memory Still I compare the present with the past I’m looking back with glassy eyes Are we shouldhavebeens or ready to move on? I’m craving for my memories Oh sweet nostalgia you’re everything I have Surrender again To rosy recollection, I perfect a past A past that has never been Distorted light, like visions in the haze How am I supposed to change? I’m craving for my memories. Oh sweet nostalgia you are everything I have. I reminisce, remembering It is everything and nothing in the end. There it goes again A vision in the haze before I wake When I rewind It all seems so colourful When in fact it’s just in monochrome I’ve tried but I can’t let go. I’m craving for my memories. Oh sweet nostalgia you are everything I have. I reminisce, remembering It is everything and nothing in the end.

LYRICS: You are stuck within these walls and trying to get out of here, but you don’t know how. You want to know how it feels, how it feels to be alive, but you don’t know how. The ceiling lit up in different shades of blue, you’re waiting for a reaction. Do you remember those days, when we were sitting on the rooftop long time ago? You said you’ll never be forgotten, but you’re just wasting time I hear your footsteps down the hall but I pretend to be asleep, cause I’m too scared to let you in. Will I ever let you in? Will you ever climb these stairs again? Will you ever make it out? Will you ever see the stars again? Or stay trapped within these walls? Will you ever be the same again? If you’re too scared to make amends. I will know, how it feels, how it feels to be alive.

LYRICS: Can’t you see the moon in this dark night? As you are stumbling down the road is your head still spinning round? Can’t you hear them whispering in your ear? You’ve never trusted the words they said and your dreams are fading out like a candle in a lightning storm. It’s so dark in here – please help me out! Don’t leave me now! It’s so dark in here – please help me out! Raise your voice - open the window, spit out the dust that made your mouth so dry, lift yourself, take off and float away. Over mountains and shattered fields they spread their wings just to make us feel so safe. Behind the assembly line you made up your plan. It’s so dark in here – please help me out! Raise your voice - open the window, spit out the dust that made your mouth so dry, lift yourself, take off and float away. You will see the sunrise in the morning. You will live.
