Track Name: Tired and betrayed
Blackend lung and reddened eyes
back and forth, neverending lies
i wish i'd been sober to see the truth glassy eyes.
a king among the blind, more like the last one of my kind,
my tongue is lose, but my feet're stuck to the ground

boy you look worn out, stretched and left, tired and betrayed, broken and ashamed of the things you'd do again.
boy you look worn out stretched and left, tired and betrayed.

I wish I could've seen you growing up, instead you saw me falling down,
why did you never leave, i showed you every single road out of this town.
this is my final stand, i got no army just a punk rock band
and the certainty that four stolen chords won't pay the rent.

boy you look...

tell my mom that i'm coming home tonight,
'home is where the heart is' i've read it a million times on your door mat, waiting there for you
tell your dad that i kinda miss the talks we've always had but i never knew where to put my hands,
seems like a million years and one night gone bad ago...
Track Name: Let it go
To those nights we stayed warm just by sleeping close together,
with your hands in my arm pit knowing there was no defeat in our hearts,
so we moved on cause moving kept us warm and staying would reveal too much of us.

you told me about the people in the streets, and how it never gets dark and how nobody ever sleeps.
you told me about the girls in the bars and how the neon lights outshine the brightest stars.

just let it go...i'm having a bad year

to those days we've survived just by pure luck or fate, who would have guessed that it was smoking that killed you in the end.
when dying young was not an option anymore and our scars became proof that we exist.

you told me...
just let it go...

every sin has been forgiven, i put the map back on the shelf
and if i die here, please promise me, to bury my body someplace else.
Track Name: Heavy is the head that wears the crown
I lost my job to reality, the bar is closing but I'm too scared to be free.
Someone said be who you wanna be, it must be true, i saw it on TV,
Poor decisions based on shitty advice, shitty advice based on lives full of regret, no matter what you're saying now: Nothing will bring those days back!

I kept no secrets, just the one that brought me down, watch me crawl, heavy is the head that wears the crown.

Heroes of war but these are times of peace, resistance fighters getting slowly drunk on wine, times havn't changed we just grew old, too old to care, too tired to die, singing:

This is all we ever had.
This is all we ever had.
This is all we ever had...of a life...

I heard you fighting in the living room
expectations that were sold below price
victories keep coming in but nothing will bring back this smile.
Track Name: Victories in black and white
20 years behind, and 20 more to go.
Let's raise this glass, drink to the scars that do not show.
criticizing them, cause i always scared to change,
one thing that i've learned: I outgrew my own mistakes.

I put my pride in a place where i cant feel it,
sealed the door with wishing wells from another time
5 hours sleep is enough to keep me decent,
9 hours work enough to keep my fears in line
among the rest i might not be the smartest,
been fighting monsters long before your time,
to assure that i don't turn into one of them
i keep my victories in black and white
Track Name: Drinking with Paul
Tonight I'm drinking with my friend Paul,
and we look upon East Berlin like only kings do from the 16th floor.
And i'm talking about women, and he's talking about girls,
tonight i'm drinking with my friend Paul.

I don't care about growing old and I don't care about giving in.
I just can't stand seeing you doing the same.

Tonight I'm drinking with my friend Paul,
and we think it's ok to be lonely in this world.
He's smoking my weed, and i'm drinking his beer,
tonight i'm drinking with my friend Paul.

I don't care about growing old and I don't care about giving in.
I just can't stand seeing you doing the same.

Oh Paul, what have we become, is it us or them?

If I can't die the way i live
If I can't die the way i live
If I can't die the way i live
I will never die at all!
Track Name: Cinemascope
Never ever leave me and I'll never leave you.
Only the warmth of the projector got me through the winters of my past,
where I learned so many things for life,
Like the things that make you hate yourself, always look good on 35.

All the faces on the screen dream of a better life,
I felt your breath upon my skin
Cinemascope wasn't wide enough to capture all our dreams.
To capture all our dreams, oh Sophie.

Getting drunk in the dark on warm gin tonic and stale beer,
making plans to see the world, always ending up in here.


All the faces on the screen dream of a better life,
I felt your breath upon my skin
Cinemascope wasn't wide enough to capture all our dreams.
To capture all our dreams, oh Sophie.

All the faces on the screen dream of a better life,
I felt your breath upon my skin
Cinemascope wasn't wide enough to capture all our dreams.
To capture all our dreams!

And we flew too close to the sun!
