Track Name: The Ins and Outs
Changes on the horizon
Moving me to find them
So I…

I’ll make it
The moment is defining
The strategy’s decided

Over time this pace will slow me down
Give me time to learn the ins and outs

Changes on the horizon
Moving me to find them
So I…

I’ll make it
The moment is defining
The strategy’s decided

Over time I start to wonder
Should I dive
Would I be pulled under?
Give me time to learn the ins and outs
Track Name: The First Try
So much for some good advice
We drop out on the first try
We flee before we even fight

“It’s just a phase” is just a phrase
used back in my old days
to tell me to sit back and wait

But we will get to roll again
We will do what it takes
All that needs a long debate
I don’t need to know

Here’s to another try
To move on to a different start
Ready for the rise
Ready for the second part
Hardly playing safe
We’re drifting on a higher wave
To another try
If a challenge comes to mind
I will give a sign

So much for a bit of truth
The proof that might offend you
Conclusions we’ll be reaching soon

It’s easier to say than do
To stop you than to guide you
‘Cause who knows what we’re heading to

But we will get to roll again
We will do what it takes
All that needs a long debate
I don’t need to know

Here’s to another try
To move on to a different start
Ready for the rise
Ready for the second part
Hardly playing safe
We’re drifting on a higher wave
To another try
If a challenge comes to mind
I will give a sign

We will get to roll again
All that’s hardly worth the wait
says it’s time to go
For another try
Track Name: K.V.
You're braced and undercover
Prepared to give it all
The focus on the finish
Not on the curtain call

You run to win them over
You’ll win to prove them wrong
There was a time to settle
But now the game is on

What a perfect day
For turning up to disobey
To slowly change the course of time

Shape your self-esteem
It only takes one girl to be
The first to ever cross that line

If you can play it out
They’ll get it right

All eyes on every movement
As you avert the fight
Unaware this moment
Will stand the test of time

You chose not to confide in
The ones that think you’re done
They better keep their statements
Before the bet is won

What a perfect day
For turning up to disobey
To slowly change the course of time

Shape your self-esteem
It only takes one girl to be
The first to ever cross that line

If you can play it out
They’ll get it right

Racing for the word to get out
Where it's never gonna die
Track Name: Set the Rules
You chose me to climb
The greatest of heights
But I can cope

If bravery feels fake
And courage comes late
I still got hope

Your hand struck a chord
That triggered the words
That eased my heart

I’ll take every blow
As if i don’t know
That ain’t too smart

We can set the rules
Set them alight

The whitest of lies
Get dirty in time
When they’re shout out loud

It’s hard to persuade
The power that hates
The slightest doubt

But wait until when
We break their defence
And take off for good

‘Cause once in a while
We need to be fired up
by something new

We can set the rules
Set them alight

Don’t hold onto fame
It waxes and wanes
‘Til it fades away

The fear of decline
Stopped me to deny
What it’s all about

We could set the rules…
Track Name: Present Continuous
If my longings disappear
there’s no reason to be here
The road is long
They keep me going on

With my dreams under attack
And my troubles shooting back
I’m far from left behind
With you still in my sights

You can set my soul on fire
Control what’s on my mind
I’m yours to tease
To bring me to my knees

We cannot choose what we desire
We don’t know what is required
Or when it goes away
Impossible, you say?
Track Name: Tout et partout
ell me
How many times
Can we start again
How many twisted turns
To lose a friend
I know it's taken long
For me to change my tune
You’ve said that it's too late
But it's still too soon

I play like broken records do
Le coeur a trente-trois tours
The songs keep skipping back to you
En tout et partout

You fell for it I fell for you
Mon coeur craquera toujours
I brushed you off
That scratched it too
En tout et partout

You can fall too hard
I’d fall to pieces now
If our shattered hopes
Cut you somehow

You skip the part where I care
What love has done to you
Since I don’t go there
Why am I hearing it too?

I play like broken records do
Le coeur a trente-trois tours
The songs keep skipping back to you
En tout et partout

On s'entendait à en devenir sourds
Hearts break when they can’t break through
On s'entendait
Je t’entends toujours
En tout et partout

And maybe I’ve been blind
But seeing others
Takes a little time
When they can see right through you

Maybe I’ve been weak
But all my memories of you don’t shine
They speak to me

En tout
T’es partout
Track Name: These Paintings Never Dry
Waking up the dream
Pushing figures to extremes
We are kicking out the symmetries
Completing their defeat

The light is never low
Still the colours lose their glow
And it strikes me now how black and white
Can touch me to the bone

These portraits take control
Of the people they behold
And you never know who’s puzzling you
The master or the muse

We’re constantly naive
Still endeavouring to mean something
Spocking fivers, doodling fun
Running down but tempted to go on

These paintings never dry
These sounds will never die out
They will always be around

The essence of a dream
Lives forever underneath these
Pieces of a broken man
Making on the mend

If beauty hides in grief
it will show when there’s relief
But it disappears step by step
With every tear you shed

You never took the time
To close your focused eyes
But then inspiration compensates
When concentration dies

This canvas is a trap
You don’t see what you get
But apologies’ efficiency
Will never beat these bittersweet regrets

Do you wanna know what it’s like
To leave your town, settle down?
What if I haven’t said the words that apply
For a better line
What if i never tried
Claiming back impressions that are mine?

These paintings never dry
These sounds will never die out
You will always be around
Track Name: Ten Seconds to Count Down
When the morning comes I open up the blinds
And the sunlight hurts my eyes
I’m skipping school, instead I need to park
This spaceship in my yard

It takes a rocket ride to leave this town
And live between the stars
It takes a thousand years to reach this goal of mine
But ten seconds to count down

The day has come to fire the rocket up
The ignition hurts my eyes
The massive smoke transforms the many clouds
Then i’m higher than the sky

It takes a rocket ride to leave this town
And live between the stars
It takes a thousand years to reach this goal of mine
But ten seconds to count down

My friends say i’m dreamer and a clown
But that won’t slow me down
Now tuck me in and get me on a flight
To another place and time
Track Name: (How It’s Going to) End
You‘re too tired
The fighting took long
And everyone knows
That nobody won
The rules have changed
Along the way

You took a step
Without looking back
But knowing too well
How it’s going to end
You’ve reached the point
You can’t pretend

All options compared
And claims verified
You’re well-documented
When questions arise
You tend to read
Between the lines

The answer’s lost
A problem’s unsolved
A man goes down
When fences go up
The focus is gone
Though you’ve tried

The jokes you cracked
The laughter we had
Though it couldn’t last
The last one came fast
I don’t judge your trials
As if i was around

You don’t see
The wood for the trees
It’s easy to learn
But hard to believe
Believe when you’re far
I will come around
I will come around

It hurts to part
When something precious is near
I don’t wanna go
I don’t wanna go
