Track Name: The Sea That Surrounds Us
Taking dreams
Living lies
My visions lost
My wounds gone cold
And for the first time
I feel alright


We believe
There's so much more than this
I have nothing left to lose these days
Because I have nothing left within me


These daylight dreams they're infinite
My eyes are seeing
but what's there worth believing
if I never crossed these paths
They say one life there's all there is
Then maybe love and hate is set in stone


I’ll take what’s mine and all that’s in sight because now I remember
I’ll take what’s mine and all that’s in sight because now I remember

I’ll let you go
Been better but here's a thought for the rest of our lives
You'll never walk alone
Will you help me now

We search dying light
The urge to be set free
I'll save my breath to tell you
There's so much more about you


I’ll take what’s mine and all that’s in sight because now I remember
I’ll take what’s mine and all that’s in sight because now I remember
Track Name: Absent Mind, Fleeting Heart
Watch me form shadows of a crystal clear reflection
Take a step back and look at our dreams flying away
In this moment I am weightless, though everything is shaking
I try to give my best, when there’s nothing left to give
With no one to take this


Bleed it out so slowly
Hanging on to frames that I'll never use anymore
Showering in withered flowers
Basking in greatness

Swallowed all that's left for me
The wills of those who remained
Lingering, resonating and calling for me
I will never look back again

In this moment I am weightless
The weight of the world, surrounding everything
The birds gone home, the wounds gone cold
And with nothing left to give, we’ll have nothing left to give

Save me the shroud of light surround me
The brightness stopped my urgency
We kept it too close
Shivering comfort

Refining sanguine daydreams
It's echoing
Haunting in my fevered mind
What's there left of me?

(Am I just forgotten?)
(Am I mistaken?)

There's nothing left of me
Track Name: Old Glory
Keep us aligned, these roads feel familiar now,
Between whats loved and lost

(We’re out of sight, we’re out of mind
oh incantations raise me
we’re out of sight, we’re out of mind
yea free will knows no safety)
These lone drives they fill me,
my mind yet only just,
I’m out of mind, out of sight
rewind and…

Take it back or paint it black
Then everything were ruins wrapped in gold
He looked around to realize he needed nothing at all
Now it seems he should have taken them all
Everywhere I turn I see this ghost in the crossroads, i’d never call her out
And if a body meets a body coming through the rye i’d know you better

This is no notion, just an absolution
I rejoice in this, oh I rejoice in this
The scales you’ve shed, washed away
There will be no worth left for pain
And no one else to shame

I speak out my lungs hurting, throats burning
between all the holes i see dust forming, sun’s beaming
Can we stay a little longer in the past yea can we?
Please can we?
Can we stay a little longer in the past yea can we?

Take it back or paint it black
Then everything were ruins wrapped in gold
He looked around to realize he needed nothing at all
Yet now it seems he should have taken them all
Everywhere I turn I see this ghost in the crossroads, i’d never call her out
I’ll take my leave here, I thought I’d know me so well

This is no notion, just an absolution
I rejoice in this, oh I rejoice in this
Track Name: Sleepless (Feat. Melina K)
Its getting cold, this windshield haze
I wish I drove alone,
I never thought i’d ask myself
Why was I ever built this way

Breathing, not alive
Dead, not departed

I’m alright

I cant hold you down
These eyes were meant to see whats
Close, not way too far

We found ourselves on highways
Through the night, yet it seemed
the past is a story we tend to tell
ourselves, a fleeting memory
I wish it was something more

I cant hold you down
These eyes were meant to see whats
Close, not way too far

Through the cold nights
The words of forever kept us warm
Now all we want is just to be set free

The world through your eyes
A part of me will always stay the same
Whatever someone you become

There’s a piece of you that has
Made me who I am, after all
It’s better to love and lost than
Never have loved at all

Settle down,
Settle down,
These eyes were meant to see whats
Close, not way too far

I cant hold you down
These eyes were meant to see whats
Close, not way too far


Through the cold nights
The words of forever kept us warm
Now all we want is just to be set free

The world seen through your eyes
Track Name: Coda
All i know is going under
A feeling lost in time, boiling over again
I’ve made up my mind
Me and my little boat of mine

Time stood still when you found love
in all we knew

(Hold on, I cant feel now)
It feels like time has taken the form of a river,
You’re sitting by the bay while
I’m leaving everything behind
In this little boat of mine

I used to be afraid of getting hurt
Running away from the things
That I've done
Running from the things I haven't done

Though we are not who we once was
I don't think I can feel anymore,
But at least I know that I am alive
Now I feel alright

Now i want you to be kind,
Thoughtful yet endearing
Though suffering and tearing

And yet, everything I thought i was fighting for
Turned out to be things I’d live without
Bruised body it hurts but at least I know I am alive


I used to be afraid of getting hurt
Running away from the things
That I've done
Running from the things I haven't done

Though we are not who we once was
I don't think I can feel anymore,
But at least I know that I am alive

Now I feel alive
Now i feel alive

Everything, still in stasis
As i said to you, with all that's left

“Aku bukan yang untukmu, kekasih sejatimu,”

And that is how the story ends
goodbye for now, my sorry friend.
