01. Linoleum

Music & lyrics by Daniel Gildenlöw
She keeps the world at bay
With walls built to stand come-what-may
And with that coldness on display they held until today
She would hold her own
Running all alone
Ridding her road of every grain to stay in control
But now
She cries
ALIVE

Suddenly she is down on all four
And the walls will support her no more
Cries her eyes out like never before
Onto this LINOLEUM
The bottled up and stored

She's won every war
And when she's out that door
She will push ahead of you
Frowning at the poor
She would move so fast
Not to end up last
Aiming for the finish line
To smile at those she'd passed

But now
She cries
ALIVE

Suddenly she is down on all four
And the walls will support her no more
Cries her eyes out like never before
Onto this LINOLEUM
The bottled up
And stored

- - - - -

And sometimes
Oh, just sometimes
That's really all it takes:
And hand on her shoulder
And then
She breaks
Sometimes that's really all it takes:
A word of kindness and she breaks
And then the sum of damage done
Spills out on stale LINOLEUM
Sometimes that's really all it takes:
A gentle touch and then she breaks
To see the sum of damage done
Stain this LINOLEUM
Sometimes that's really all it takes:
A word or touch and then we break
And all this world's LINOLEUM can't hold the sum of damage

Done

- - - - -

She's becoming her last casualty
If she breaks then at last she'll be free
But she keeps it together once more
And runs another day
To fight another war

- - - - -

Itsy bitsy spider
Climbed the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Now she stays on the ground
So she'll never fall
See, she would rather drown than lose CONTROL


02. Mortar Grind

Music & lyrics by Daniel Gildenlöw
Emelie is sad
Emelie is sad
Emelie is sad
She used to be glad
Now Emelie's been had
Emelie's been had
Emelie's been had
She might never be glad
Oh but there is something deep inside her
Oh if we could only see inside her
Now she's mine
All broken inside
A product of your fine
MORTAR GRIND
Every crime is seeping inside
Until they're all mine...
BURN THEM AWAY
Jenny used to smile
Jenny used to smile
Jenny used to smile
Now she'll only hide
Jenny's in denial
Jenny's in denial
Jenny's in denial
She might never smile
Oh but there is something deep inside her
Oh I know coz I have been inside her
Now she's mine
All broken inside
A product of your fine
MORTAR GRIND
Every crime is seeping inside
Until they're all mine
BURN THEM AWAY

- - - - -

I used to be mine
I used to be mine
I used to be mine
Now I'm feeling blind
I'm too deep inside
I'm too deep inside
I'm too deep inside
This MORTAR GRIND

- - - - -

Now it's mine
All broken inside
A product of her fine
MORTAR GRIND
All this vile sulfer and brine
I keep deep inside
BURN IT AWAY


03. If You Wait

Music & lyrics by Daniel Gildenlöw
IF YOU WAIT if I could ask you to wait
I'd get back
Somehow
To you
If I could ask you to wait
I'll bring myself
Home to you
I would walk on
This road
Through mud
Through grass
Through dust
Through rain
Whatever I find in my way
I'll power through
I'll power through
Home to you
IF YOU WAIT if I could ask you to wait
But I can't ask you to wait
Though it breaks me:
Go
I must ask you to go
Go
I must ask you to go
Please go
(I must ask you to go)


04. Gone

Music & lyrics by Daniel Gildenlöw
You are all defining me
Like you know me
Inside out
And if I'd let it get to me
You'd damage me beyond repair
And I have always done my best
To block it out
And keep my self
But lately it has been so hard
And I don't know
Where I end and you start

These are the words that I have bled
These are the tears that I have shed
These are the bleak roads that I dread
This is the home to which they led

Can you hear me now?
Can you see me now?
Can you touch me now?
Deep inside I'm GONE
And I have given more than most
I've fucking overdosed on honesty
But then when I've given everything
Then what will there be left of me?
And who'll stand by this troubled man
With a burning mind
And a fever inside?
See if I cannot direct this flame
It might just burn everything in its way

These are the words that I have bled
These are the tears that I have shed
These are the bleak roads that I dread
This is the home to which they led

Can you hear me now?
Can you see me now?
Can you touch me now?
Deep inside I'm GONE

- - - - -

I just never seem to be enough
You're too many mouths to feed
Too many reached out hand to hold
Too many broken hearts to heal
And in the end I'll spread to him
And gently overbleed
Sadly overestimating the amount of me
I let you crawl into my head
I let you crawl under my skin
I let you taste every tear I've shed
I'm always letting you right in

- - - - -

So crawl over the words I've bled
I'm not really there
Undress and crawl into my bed
I'm not really there
I'm GONE
Oh yeah...
You see
Deep inside I'm GONE


06. Yellow Raven

Music & lyrics by Uli Roth
The yellow raven sipped the air
Of thunder and of rain
The yellow raven sipped the air
Gentle lies kissing the rain

Where do you go, fantastic dreambird?
Take me away to somewhere
Take me away from here!
Where do you go, fantastic dreambird?
Answer to my yearning
Take me away from here!

The firebird began to cry
When the music died away
The firebird began to cry
And smoke was slowly drifting by

Where do you go, fantastic dreambird?
Take me away to somewhere
Take me away from here!
Where do you go, fantastic dreambird?
Answer to my yearning
Take me away from here
