Track Name: ~ Unbearable
Translation:

"How long are you staying?

- Until tomorrow.

At first he seemed scared, but the more we talked, he gained back some spirit, which often is the case.

Do you have food with you?

- Yes I do. I'm sorry.

I just hope you're okay.

I'm just trying to prevent suicides.

Please take this way back.

- I'm sorry for the trouble.

Take your time to think; be positive.

It was nice meeting you."
Track Name: Weight
all desire condensed into a single thought
heavy hearts form the basis of a simple plot
tread lightly in a sea of wants and waking dreams
current always changing what it is to what it seems

nothing matters but in brief flashes i see
these thoughts projected in the world around me
the trees breathe they ask me if i understand
beneath it all i wonder if i really can

this is my weight
lightness is the light i can't see beyond my sight
it's all this weight
all i need is a fresh slate
this is my weight
mostly all alright other times such a fight
so much weight

perfect images envisioned in the eyes
somehow the real thing always feels disguised
the real tainted by weak thoughts and white lies
often different but they really give the same high

so many choices yet only one to make
multiple paths one road to take
which are the right ones i will never see
but what is is better than what should be

this is my weight
lightness is the light i can't see beyond my sight
it's all just weight
never mind with a fresh slate
this is my weight
everything's bright when it sits under the moonlight
so much weight
Track Name: Twisted Games (Wicked Games II)
how's the view down there
you getting what you need
i can see it in your eyes i can see it in your hands
i know you need me

lost at sea
you could get lost in my sheets
but this anxiety lack of sobriety
hardly the first for me

the pills don't help neither does the liquor
the night rolls on my problems they get bigger
drowning in your scent and out the sorrows
we can help each other just forget about tomorrow

you should come downstairs and lose your mind
help us convince ourselves it'll be different this time
i don't even know you but you belong to me
approached me early on and then became my company

pretend it means something pretend you need someone
we might be sick girl but let's just have some fun
we come alive at night we never see the day
these are truly twisted games we play

sun came up and its setting in
just rewind and restart again
know you're tired but i won't give in
body over mind heaven
the monastery is the place
where better judgment is erased
brain cells that you won't replace
welcome to the race

the pills don't help neither did the liquor
the night rolled on my problems they got bigger
drowned out your scent and in the sorrows
my god is it already tomorrow

pretend it means something pretend you need someone
we might be sick girl but let's just have some fun
we come alive at night we never see the day
these are truly twisted games we play
Track Name: ANGEL VISIONS
Translation:

"Your life is a precious gift from your parents. Please think about your parents, siblings, and children. Don't keep it to yourself. Talk about your troubles."
Track Name: Another Day
i'll hide behind my eyedrops
you behind your camera
let's take pictures all day
inhale our thoughts away

when everything gets quiet
i'll strike a strange pose
make it seem like we're okay
we can sort things out another day

we'll wear the truth away

a sunny autumn afternoon
pills made of rocks straight from the moon
i can see that black take over blue
what's happening to you

you feel close yet far away
there's just not much more to say
darling this is getting old
these are all re-run episodes

you hide behind your eyedrops
me behind your camera
breathe in our sweet decay
exhale the thoughts away

when everything gets quiet
you'll strike a strange pose
make it seem like we're okay
we can sort things out another day

who knows the truth anyway
Track Name: the Warmth ft. Annie Maxwell
seasons they change that's what we know
every christmas it's different snow
not out there but inside here
we search for warmth this cold time of year

the wintertime is a friend
the wintertime is an enemy
sometimes i worry
i'm in bad company

the wintertime is a friend
the wintertime is an enemy
sometimes i worry

cold down here but i want to stay
stay here with me don't go away
i'll keep you warm through night and day
it all melts in the end anyway

the wintertime is a friend
the wintertime is an enemy
when i'm alone
i'm in bad company

the wintertime is a friend
the wintertime is an enemy
i'm doing fine
you're just always on my mind
Track Name: Eternal ~
Translation:

"I think the way we live in society these days has become more complicated. Face-to-face communication used to be vital, but now we can live our lives being online all day. However, the truth of the matter is, we still need to see each other's faces. Read their expressions, hear their voices, so we can fully understand their emotions. To coexist."
