Track Name: You Could Almost
Are you still crazy about me?
You’re gonna drain me
You’re gonna burn me
Only time will tell
It always does
Puke, cough, shake
Moving backwards, half awake
There is a drawing on the floor
In another place so long before

You could almost
If you could just

Watch again the seconds hand
You’re gonna hate it
You’re gonna need it
Only time will tell
It always does
Drink, smoke, sleep
I know you’re bad at counting sheep
And get to wake up in the morn’
Ever since the day when you were born

You could almost
If you could just

Didn’t have the balls to answer her today
And it’s breaking my heart: I got laid

Are you still thinking about it?
You gotta leave it
And be forbearing
Only time will tell
It always does
Only time will tell
It always does
Only time will tell
It always does

You could almost
If you could just
If you could just
If you could just
Track Name: End Of Wine
Oh sweety, give me some panic
Another one night stand
Tears can wait
Till the end of time, till the end of wine
I loved you and I think you felt the same
Though you’d never admit it
And I know you wouldn’t believe me
You knew you would leave me
At the end of time, at the end of wine

When the jasmines are growing
When it’s warmer here, colder there
And the window is closing
I might realize you were right

When the jasmines are growing
When it’s warmer here, colder there
And the window is closing
I might realize you were right

Oh baby, quantum mechanics
I was sitting on the fence
It felt right, it felt nice
Till the end of time, till the end of wine
Till the end of time, till the end of wine
Till the end of time, till the end of time
Till the end of time, till the end of wine
Track Name: Still Afraid Of Pain
Your rocket engines
Brought you far away
But now you say you’re looking
Back at me, back at me
And you’re moving so fine
The movie’s all right
And the crew is doing great
While I’m just sinking
You’re just sinking
In this deadly state of mind
I’ll never have the guts
To be myself again
Crushed, crying, crashed
And still afraid of pain

Those days are gone
Just like my will
And even though I’m done
I know that I will never be relaxed
But drunk, yeah, beating myself up
Until my brain explodes
And everything turns black
But the movie’s all right
You’re moving so fine
There’s no one else around
I take the bait without a frown
I love your smile
I know I cannot hide
I wouldn’t stop your hand
There’s no use to pretend

I’m afraid ‘cause I’m not sure
If my reaction was insane
I’ve always known awareness hurts
Like breathing...I had to run away
I wrote this song to let you know
You touched me and made me cry
Now, when the music’s gone
Survival instinct is my friend
Track Name: Underneath My Feet
He’s walking down the lane
Where God forbids to stay alive
Is the death of my brain
Now his only life?
He says he was right
Out of control
I just couldn’t get along
With that role
Where the fuck did he belong?
He said I was wrong

But I still see that line
Drawn underneath my feet
That makes us meet from time to time
Yes I still see that line
Drawn underneath my feet
That makes us dream from time to time

Now he’s home
No mom to tell him what to think
And he writes a poem
About his leaking kitchen sink
While his world is shrinking down
Saturation
Information you can’t see
Yesterday the show
Was as fun as it could be
Grounded at 1G
Now I’m drifting randomly

But I still see that line
Drawn underneath my feet
That makes us meet from time to time
Yes I still see that line
Drawn underneath my feet
That makes us dream from time to time
Yes I still see that line
Drawn underneath my feet
That makes us dream from time to time
Track Name: Spinnin' Around In The Shade
Spinnin’ around in the shade
Dreaming of the sunlight
Retreat and shame
It’s too cold outside
Do I wanna go?
Couldn’t I just stay
And watch the fire die?
My love won’t wake me up

Helpless all day
Nothing I could change at night
In a human way
Many others would race
For another taste of life
In a comfortable place
And let the fire die
My love, don’t wake me up

Oh darling, I can’t get away from here
There’s no one to blame for it
I’m begging you, don't get away from me
I know we can handle it
My love, please, wake me up

Spinnin’ around in the shade
Dreaming of the sunlight
Spinnin’ around in the shade
Dreaming of the sunlight
