Track Name: Hello The End
This is the end, my friend,
the end, my friend, the end.
I hope to see you again, my friend,
again, my friend, again.

And I didn't want to hold you back
and I didn't want to see you off now, down the wrong track.

Elusive personality, I think you know as much as me.
No secrets that you're hiding.

Count 4 and we'll begin again, we'll begin again.
This time, release, my friend,
release, my friend, the end.

And I didn't want to hold you back
and I didn't want to see you off now, down the wrong track.

This time, it makes so sense at all,
I'm standing still while others fall.
Keeps shrinking every second.

Hello
The End, the End.

The End.
Track Name: Distant Light
She sits at table number thirty-five,
the only one of us who's still alive.

There's no telling when you need a friend
to get you home and back
again.
There's something special in emergency,
it was a heart
but what blind to see.

Lately we're caught up in the skinny wars,
we like to sit back and compare the scars.

Outside awaits, it's calling your name,
and it won't be long.
Tomorrow and a day,
it's your life from a distant light.
Still doing drive buys in your neighbourhood
I want to leave you but I never could.

It's just a party, but it's so much more,
please feed the socialite before it bores.

There's no mistake, they keep telling me,
a happy heart has a world to see.

Outside awaits, it's calling your name
and it won't be long.
Tomorrow and a day
it's your life from a distant light.

distant light,
distant line.
distant light,
distant line.
Track Name: Coming Home
You found a home inside a heart
And lost it all with broken feelings
I watch you churn inside your mind
And put it out with double meanings

(chorus)
Well, we're coming home
We’ve been searching for a place to call our own
Yeah, we're coming home
All you lonely vagabonds
Looking for a place to call your own

Now, oh, no, no yeah…

With blackened face and tired hands
And all the memorys are mistaken
A blinding light from up above
For every truth that you’ve been faking

(chorus)
Well, we're coming home
We’ve been searching for a place to call our own
Yeah, we're coming home
All you lonely vagabonds
Looking for a place to call your own

Lonely days gonna get you callin’
Lonely days gonna get you callin’
Lonely days gonna get you callin’
Lonely days gonna get you callin’

Well, we're coming home
We’ve been searching for a place to call our own
Yeah, we're coming home
All you lonely vagabonds
Looking for a place to call your own

Well, we're coming home
We’ve been searching for a place to call our own
Yeah, we're coming home
All you lonely vagabonds
Looking for a place to call your own
Track Name: Far Away
You've got your shirt on, but it stills feels cold,
it still feels cold tonight.

Your heart's devotion running through your head,
running through you head tonight.

The waves around you, they keep crashing in.
It's getting deep now but you still can't swim.

It just feels far away, so far away,
this world tonight.
It just feels far away, so far away,
your world tonight.

You're feeling lowly 'cause you miss your friends,
you miss your friends tonight.

The waves around you, they keep crashing in.
It's getting deep now, but you still can't swim.

It just feels far away, so far away,
this world tonight.
It just feels far away, so far away,
your world tonight.
Track Name: 1000 Miles
The cold has past the sun, it's shining.
We're digging holes, we're gold heart mining.
So here you stand, without a plan,
The dream is here, surpass your fear.
I said ey, you're a thousand miles away,
I wish you weren't today.
I know we're set to overload,
Your heart, my mind, it will explode again.
The secret's out, your feet are singing.
With coloured face, tonight you're winning.
So here you stand, without a plan.
I said hey, you're a thousand miles away,
I wish you weren't today.
I know we're set to overload,
Your heart, my mind, it will explode again.
My friend, we can start again,
Dreamer's 'til the end.
I know we're set to overload,
Your heart, my mind, it will explode again.
Track Name: Save My Soul
Hey, there's a little light and shade.
Broken promises were made
but there's no one left to blame
but ourselves, today.

Hey, sometimes I want to disappear,
escape from all the years,
the secrets and the fears.
Take a holiday.

And you save, yeah you save my soul.
And you save, yeah you save my soul.
And you save, yeah you save my soul again.

Hey, it's coming around again my friend,
I need to see again the angel,
who can mend,
when it's crashing in.

And you save, yeah you save my soul.
And you save, yeah you save my soul.
And you save, yeah you save my soul again.

There's something inside,
I know it's true,
walking the other side of you.

Wasting the day, but it's ok,
the memory I lost of last night's dream
Some of us laugh now, some of us scream,
be safe today, 'cause it's ok.

And you save, yeah you save my soul.

And you save, yeah you save my soul.
And you save, yeah you save my soul.
And you save, yeah you save my soul again.
Track Name: Ordinary Boy
So we're setting sail, on a crooked trail,
our broken ships are set to sail again.
Yeah, you've got a voice, yet you made the choice,
tired of all this pulling on your strings.

You've got so much to give,
but now you're moving out,
'cause you've got to live.

This ain't no ordinary, stationery boy,
he waits for you to bear it.
Cover him with joy,
he's been waiting for a long time,
waiting so long...

As you blindly run, stumble in the sun,
mostly 'cause you know your heart is true.
Exit up ahead, with a common thread,
as conversation fills you up in you.

You've got so much to give,
but now you're moving out,
'cause you've got to live.

This ain't no ordinary, stationery boy,
he waits for you to bear it.
Cover him with joy,
he's been waiting for a long time,
waiting so long...

You've got so much to give,
but now you're moving out,
'cause you've got to live.

This ain't no ordinary, stationery boy,
he waits for you to bear it.
Cover him with joy,
he's been waiting for a long time,
waiting so long...
Track Name: Beautiful
I came to kiss your broken bones,
Another kill 'cause you're not alone.
You see the world in black and white,
Your broken boy is here tonight.
This is a call, to all that was before.
This is a call, to all that was before.
I sold my soul for less to you,
I kept my mind but you want it too.
I lost the rights, 'cause less is more,
For what it's worth, I've lost before.
This is a call, to all that was before.
This is a call, to all that was before.
Track Name: This Is A Call
I came to kiss your broken bones,
another kill 'cause you're not alone.
You see the world in black and white,
your broken boy is here tonight.

This is a call, to all that was before.
This is a call, to all that was before.

I sold my soul for less to you,
I kept my mind but you want it too.
I lost the rights, 'cause less is more,
for what it's worth, I've lost before.

This is a call, to all that was before.
This is a call, to all that was before.
Track Name: Chasing The Sun
On my hands, sitting on half a chance,
waiting for good things to come.
Passers by looking through broken glass,
waiting for good things to come.

And this cry goes out to everyone,
chasing the sun, chasing love.
And my heart goes out to everything,
coming undone, coming done.

Round and round, spinning through this old dance,
holding your heart with your thumb.
Straight to plan goes not so everything,
waiting for good things to come.

And this cry goes out to everyone,
chasing the sun, chasing love.
And my heart goes out to everything,
coming undone, coming done.

Oh, when will you see?
There's more to you,
there's more to me.
Oh, nobody knows how it will turn,
how it will turn,
how it will turn.

And this cry goes out to everyone,
chasing the sun, chasing love.
And my heart goes out to everything,
coming undone, coming done.
Track Name: Light Is On
It's entertainment, and it takes you away,
Into the fire, into the fire it will play.
It's consequential and it calls out your name,
Into the fire, into the fire it will say.
The light is on, we'll shine on.
The light is on, we'll shine on.
Your brother, sister will make sense of it all,
Out of the fire, out of the fire they will call.
You hear a voice now, as you walk down the street,
Out of the fire, into the fire you repeat.
The light is on, we'll shine on.
The light is on, we'll shine on.
We've come to shake you from under your stone,
Together alone, we'll be there.
We've come to take you away from it all,
How big or small, we still care.
The light is on, we shine on.
The light is on, we shine on.
Track Name: What's Wrong
What's wrong? It don't feel the same anymore.
How long will we stare at the floor?
What's wrong? We just seem indifferent these days.
How long will we be caught in this maze?
Something inside of me feels like the enemy now,
are you coming home?
Only the worst in me, can think the best of me now,
are you coming home?
What's wrong? All my days seem so strange.
How long, why won't these traffic lights change?
My song, it's just my insides letting go.
How long before you're coming back home?
Something inside of me feels like the enemy now,
are you coming home?
Only the worst in me, can think the best of me now,
are you coming home?
Are you coming home?
Saving souls is a good thing to do,
but it's hopeless when you're falling yourself.
We've got living to do, but nobody's trying no more,
there's a world between us but there's nothing to bare.
Something inside of me feels like the enemy now,
are you coming home?
Only the worst of me, can think the best of me now,
are you coming home?
Are you coming home?
Track Name: America
My friends just called back home,
Lost themselves in a America,
Found themselves in the usa.
My brother does not know how much I love him so,
I guess it's time to break that code.
'Cause we're reeling in every sight and sin,
Every home sick boy along the way.
Well it comes hard and fast,
It falls thick and thin,
Every home sick girl along the way.
My sister does not care what kind of clothes you bare,
It's just a call from the heart.
And so we're here again, in a bar at three A.M,
We love the music and the talk.
'Cause we're reeling in every sight and sin,
Every home sick boy along the way.
Well it comes hard and fast,
It falls thick and thin,
Every home sick girl along the way.
