Track Name: Poison
if only you could see the sun set alight
while tangled in the stark interwebs of lies
smell the scent of all the wasted nights
if only you could taste the poison that kept me alive

then in the toxic wake
at the point of decline
when it all goes tame
you would understand

if only you could hear the clock of time
the deafening ringing going down my spine
see the sea I am drowning in
if only you could take the drug that kept me alive

then in the toxic wake
at the point of decline
when it all turns plain
you will understand

if only you could taste the poison
Track Name: One Life More or Less (EP version)
I waste my life in the head
waste my life in my bed
wonderful, so beautiful and dutiful

hide myself in a mirror
pretending I don't see her
as if cast in a role with seven lives to spare

one life more or less

but when her doubtful smiles are all summed up and combined
it still remains unclear which law to apply
and, if I hide, I will never feel denied
well, until the day, that is, until the day...

so, spend your life on the knee
act as if you don't hear me

one life more or less

and when your doubtful smiles are all summed up and combined
it still remains unclear which law would apply
no, if you hide, you will never feel defied
well, until the day, that is, until the day...

one life more or less
Track Name: You Went All Deep
remember the rain?
we took the longest possible way
thought there was something that I forgot to say
so I thought I'd let it known in a different way...

weeks went on, felt like light years
no galaxy was too far
and as I slowly shifted gears
and we ended up in another bar

you went all deep
I had to drink myself to sleep
you went all nuclear
it was peculiar
how much you can clear in one sweep

and you were good at so many things
while I could barely sing or play the guitar
though still today I think
we haven't properly figured out who we really are

months went on, felt like good years
though I knew the end was never too far
and as you slowly shifted gears
and we left another bar

you went all deep
I had to drink myself to sleep
you went all nuclear
it was peculiar
how much you can clear in one sweep
Track Name: Safe but Insane
safe but insane
confined within
a life wearing thin
then there's so much to say
that's just how it begins
at first it seems
like a medicine

and what do you say?
ain't the beginnings great?

that's how the end begins
yet, are you in?
the time is wearing thin
time is wearing thin!

and what do you say?
ain't it going great?

and then you hesitate
you play it safe
nothing can oscillate
there comes the glitch
just an average
and that's the glitch
an average

that's how the end begins
it's always the same
always the same
safe but insane
Track Name: Steering the Wheel Away
deserting these streets
leaving no trail
don't trace me back
I won't play this game
'cause I'm steering the wheel away

I hear them calling, them beasts
they are on their way
to help me find what's left of the day
'cause I'm steering the wheel away
steering the wheel away

will you come with me?
do you really need me?
will you come with me?
we could share this little getaway

deserting these streets
leaving no trail
please help me find what's left of the day!
'cause I am steering the wheel away
steering the wheel away

will you come with me?
and can you really hear me?
will you come with me?
don't we deserve this little getaway?
will you come with me?
and do you really need me?
will you come with me?
we could do with a little getaway
let's get away!
Track Name: Malady
for the life of me
I can't explain this malady
where's the grounds from which it transpires
as far as I can see
it is a common fallacy
that we could get any higher

still I wait on, wait and crave
the sensuality
that could bring out and lift my
spirituality
but it just keeps revolving
revolving away

and for the heck of me
is there no one to tell me?
you say, there is always a way
as far as I can see
mine is the common mentality
though you, you could always see higher

so I wait on, wait and crave
the sensuality
that could bring out and lift my
spirituality
though it would be a waste on me
it would be a waste on me
