Track Name: Heaven (The Devil In the Details)
Weekend comes and all we've
said is done
(weekend comes and goes)
But we can't get past

All the memories that we've pushed away
All the feelings that we've led astray
(led astray)
And all the Saturday's and
Sunday's someday

I see heaven in the things you say
And the devil when you look away
And you breathe breathe
like it's the first time
And I feel feel like it's the last time

I see heaven in the things you say
and the devil when you look
look the other way
and I feel my heart resign

with empty hearts here we both stand
and the second hand...
it goes tick... tock.. tick... tock...

the culmination of our hopes and fears
and all the minutes stretching into years
I wanna make the circle stop
every time I hear the

Heaven in the things you say
and the devil when you look away
and you breathe breathe
like it's the first time
but I feel feel this is the last time

I see heaven in the things you say
and the devil when you look
look the other way
and our hearts beat out of time

I wanna walk
and you ask me not to
you wanna talk
with his arms around you

you're holding to something...
but 'something's changed.
Track Name: Revenge
you’re never gonna take me alive
devoted to demise
you’re never gonna push me aside
and in the twilight in falls apart
under the half-light
you kiss and sell your beauty goodbye

like radio waves you pass me by
video takes your thoughts online
your sullen style
it’s all pretend
sinking in sentiment sublime
all of your truths are laced with lies
your violet smile kisses red...
like revenge.

are you ever gonna kill your disguise?
the breath behind the lies
will I ever see the whites of your eyes?
and in this hot white light
you fall apart
it’s such a sad, sad sight
the touch of dissonance and demise

Where do we go now?

eye for eye, and this for that
you hit me, I hit you back
eye for eye, and this for that
if you kiss me, I’ll kiss you back
Track Name: Flame
It’s a dark and lonely winter
you say “this hell’s never felt so cold”
yet there’s the faintest smell of cinders
and a truth yet to be told

and a sound surrounds your secret
something I’ve heard, but can’t yet see
like whispers in the twilight
the secret now revealed to me...

it’s a flame
burning just behind your eyes
I’m praying for rain
but nothing will put out these fires
that burn and blaze

wait
let’s not forsake all these years
if you’d just stay
there’s so much truth still to hear
and I’ll listen all night
to your hopes and every fear
I won’t say it’s alright
these things always end in tears

you’re fanning the flame
and everything is catching fire
the things that you hate
and everything that you desire
are one and the same
running to escape this pyre
and cover the shame
hiding just behind your eyes
through green and grey

we turn, turn with hearts on fire
we feel it inside
we’re steeling to die
to burn, burn what we conspire
we cast it aside
to keep us alive

there’s a flame
the things that you hate
the tears that you taste
we burn it away
there’s a flame.
Track Name: The Huntress
you’re in my headlights
with nowhere to run
and I’m the huntress
and I’m getting my gun
I’ve got your eyes wide
this is so much fun
and we’ve just begun

and when we dance
I’m bringing hell in a dress
and with a glance
I’ll leave your heart in a mess
with every word I’ve got a lie to confess
your eyes are so committal
this might hurt a little

you take the worst of me
and just make it seem like hell in the way
you break the best of me and
just shake the rest of heaven away
this thing that we’ve become
might seem like love to some
all the lies you’ve fed to me
they leave me standing empty
with nothing to say

and like a cross
you give the weary a rest
and like a vampire
I take it right in the chest
and every chance
I’m putting grace to the test
and I feel so numb

it’s such a tragedy
this violent love affair with vanity
every stupid promise is a fallacy
I’ll make you settle for less
your end has come
Track Name: Let's Go!
You're just in time
so step right up to the starting line
we smile and all the while
you'll walk this mile in single file

March like a soldier
left foot first and right down the middle
We'll give the order

If you can make it
we can break it and
take it away!!

we’re never gonna give our youth away
it's not political
everybody wants to give us words to say
it's just so typical...


watch your mouth
when you're talking to me
scrape your knees in disloyalty
genuflect my audacity
as I step on all your decency.

We'll sit and watch you
(I told you so)
hold fast to virtue
(I sold your soul)
integrate or antiquate

If you can turn it
we can burn it and
take it away!!


let’s go!
Track Name: Dead Hearts
our dreams seem far away
before the sunrise
will grace let us betray all the tears that

I've cried
I've cried
I've felt so alone
I've pled
I've bled
I've wondered why
I'm lost
we're lost
but if we close our eyes
we might see
the light that we dream about

hope still has a name and it sets on fire
hope is still a flame that is burning inside
hope has made a way for
all the dead hearts to arise

and our hearts ignite
ascending though it feels like we're falling
our dreams cast light
like stars burning bright
hearts held high
ascending for the first time
we're soaring like birds in flight

the truth seems hard to say
so far past sunset
can grace still take away
all the things that

I've said
you've said
don't say it again...
I've heard
I've hurt
I've listened to lies
I'm scared
I'm scared
but I've a feeling that
this could be the last time we fall apart
Track Name: Crybaby
I just need some time to get this right
you’re so hollywood
so I guess you should be in the limelight
sing high and swing low
you’ve got the look
can’t you put on a show?
I’ll tell you why it’s gonna blow
you’re a star and nobody knows

shine so bright
well come on, crybaby!
I wanna take you, take you for a ride

a cigarette in your mouth
with lips that scream, now now they pout
so take your last drag
‘cause the song you sing
well it’s sorry and so sad

watch you do - I’ve seen better
but at least you’ve found an easy lover
rock hard and scream louder
but you leave me
with nothing to remember

and so you can’t stop crying
about all this love you’ve lost
at least you have your stories
it’s just too bad they’re boring.
Track Name: Suffer
with a moon half-empty
and a sky that's gone to waste
and the twilight offers cold embrace

the amber of autumn fades
and the greys of summer's mistakes
and the dreams we try to replicate...
they fall away

isn't this world something wonderful
that we were made to suffer both it's honesty and cruelty?
today

with a heart half-empty
and a light I've yet to see
and the sadness takes ahold of me

and fire-white burns like...
agony.
entropy.

we all fall apart
to the cadence of our bleeding hearts
they fall away

isn't this world something wonderful
that we were made to suffer both it's majesty and cruelty?
they fall away...
and is grace not something beautiful that we were made to suffer?
the lucid touch of clemency.

and our tears become a sanctuary we are made to suffer
with tenderness and empathy.

we are made to suffer.
Track Name: Sanctuary (Glen Nicholls Mix)
take naivety from me
and leave me isolated
all at once I feel so free
yet so captivated
you make the endless waves of time
seem so temporary,
you're my missionary...
emissary...
adversary.

you define the line
between human and divine
in this empty place
intrinsic grace so necessary
see the skies divide
when hope and fear collides
from this cemetery
offer me this sanctuary

there is violence when you move
yet I'm stationary
devastate all my design
and make it arbitrary
you break my legs yet leave my knees
my will penetrated
I'm eviscerated..
consecrated..
lacerated!

you define the line
between human and divine
in this empty place
intrinsic grace so necessary
see the skies divide
when hope and fear collide
from this cemetery
offer me this sanctuary

this heart you break it
and make it sacred
these eyes awaken
this breath is taken from you
Track Name: Away
"I'm so alone"
I hear you say
I give my hand
you push it away
we can't decide on love or suicide

through the great divide
the earth, the moon, the tide
if I had a way we could make it
would you take it?

if we could
pray the words that endear us
awake the vows inside
the heavens sigh
like the groom who sees
the first glimpse of his bride...
and takes her away.

come take us away.

sometimes we lie
to make the truth seem kind
we cast redemption aside
just to make it go away
well I'm done being afraid
I'll kiss the wounds that I've made
and let the scars remain

come take us away.

can you take us away?

come take us away!

away.
Track Name: Battered & Bruised
(music & lyrics by Mårten Kellerman)
Warner/Chappell Music Scandinavia AB
& Subspace Communications AB


Guess I had to be kind of blind not to see
How it was bound to be in vain
Hung around for the plot to thicken
While being stabbed again and again
This time I'll burn all bridges leading back
'Cause I'm not sure I'm strong enough
I simply have to bail
I'm far to frail to be at the receiving end

I feel torn apart and abused
Battered and bruised

I guess I'm stupid to nurture
an addiction to hope
But it's not my only vice
I surrendered again
thought things would change
Now imagine my surprise
This time I'll burn all bridges leading back

'Cause I'm not sure I'm strong enough
I simply have to bail
I'm far to frail to be at the receiving end

I feel torn apart and abused
Battered and bruised
Track Name: Matter
words & music: J. Belville

you can say the words to their faces
they won't listen
you can sound it any way you can
and you tell your dreams to the world
they won't listen
your hopes and invention
don't matter to them

but they matter to me.
and your whispers sing like sirens to me

standing by like a hero
with nothing to save
up against all the water,
wind, and the waves
take a moment just to shield your face
shut your mouth
let your secrets keep their place
you'll tell them to no one

but you can tell them to me.
and your sentiments are diamonds to me.
Track Name: King Planet
back to the one time in space
back to the first place
when the orbits and lights
shimmered true to
the spin of the world
back to the tilt and angle
back to the former design, the mind
you were king
and all the planets aligned

back to the shape of things before
kingdoms all rise and fall
along ancient shores, yeah
before we built the walls
you made the way before
we dropped the bomb
dropped the bomb
before hate love was law,
life, everything
and you were king

you are the mystic man
you are the promised land
you walk the silver sand
of stars you're shining
you are the atmosphere
you are the music clear
you are the golden tier
and you are king planet

we ride the wave, feel the force
in fake course
we taste the floors
from the cup we dream color
insidious drop
one taste and you don't stop
for planet save
that we dropped the bomb
dropped the bomb
now centuries late, law is hate
we wait for kingdom come!

bring back the tilt and angle
bring back the former design
the time you were king
and all the planets aligned
Track Name: Here Is the House
Here is the house
Where it all happens
Those tender moments
Under this roof
Body and soul come together
As we come closer together
And is it happens
It happens here in this house

And I feel your warmth
And it feels like home
And there's someone
Calling on the telephone
Let's stay home
It's cold outside
And I have so much
To confide to you

With or without words
I'll confide everything

Here is the house
Where it all happens
Those tender moments
Under this roof
Body and soul come together
As we come closer together
And as it happens
It happens here in this house

So we stay at home
And I'm by your side
And you know
What's going on inside
Inside my heart
Inside this house
And I just want to
Let it out for you

And I feel your warmth
And it feels like home
And I feel your warmth
And it feels like home
