Track Name: These days
These days are different
The waves are not the same
The trickle of hope inside
has gone and run away
its all about yourself now
and whether your willing to play
Because these days are defferent
The waves are not the same

So what will i do
And what will i say to you,

chorus
Its the thing that you will leave upon your windowsill
Its the feelings that you scratched upon your wall
Its the image of the eyes of all the people living high
the people from your past will never fall

The people in this room
are all but just the same
you can call them your family
if they stop you from going insane
if blood is thicker than water
then its blood that we have made
Because these days are different
the waves are not the same

chorus
Its the thing that you will leave upon your windowsill
Its the feelings that you scratched upon your wall
Its the image of the eyes of all the people living high
the people from your past will never fall

But now well take a train onto the foreign land
with tickets that weve made just from the dust
But now well take a train onto the foreign land
with tickets that weve made just from the dust

These days are different
The waves are not the same
The trickle of hope inside
has gone and run away
its all about yourself now
and whether your willing to play
Because these days are defferent
The waves are not the same
Track Name: Terrorised side
The Terrorised side
of a fucked up mind
gets lost in translation
between the brain and the action

well be together forever you will find
me and my skytsophrenic side

Holes in my head
are leaving room for peace and soul
thoughts go through my head they are erased
thoughts go through my head they are disgraced

Decisions cross my mind
from left to right from side to side
One side does its best
the other leaves me for the dead
One side does its best
Track Name: Soviet song
This bullet holes of days gone by
the clay and mortar that shocks the city skies
It leaves the old men sleeping in the night
living under bridges with just there candle-light

Chorus
Theyl hold you down theyl see you cry
your living in the shadow of the old soviet light
Theyl hold you down theyl watch you die
have fun when your travelling on the transiberian
railway line

Well this is just my maverick point of view
on my transibereanpoint to prove
I see the people and ther strangled real tight
living in the shadow of an old soviet light

Chorus
Theyl hold you down theyl see you cry
your living in the shadow of the old soviet light
Theyl hold you down theyl watch you die
have fun when your travelling on the transiberian
railway line

So what would Stallin say
hed probably drop dead
and heve have to pray
He said that death
wuld solve all our problems

He ruled with an iron fist
We never really knew
The haunting twist
Have fun when you are
living in your shadow

Well this is just my maverick point of view
on my transibereanpoint to prove
I see the people and ther strangled real tight
living in the shadow of an old soviet light

Chorus
Theyl hold you down theyl see you cry
your living in the shadow of the old soviet light
Theyl hold you down theyl watch you die
have fun when your travelling on the transiberian
railway line
Track Name: Kirbman
The emotions of a kirbman get split into
simple segments of life
After he lost his wife

The people they percieve him
as a dishonest pointless waste of air
you know they just dont care

They say its you to blame its your own shame
its you to blame its your own shame
its you to blame , now hes dead

so kirbman he awakes and turns around
the way he shakes his feather hat
he says its you to blame

And one day kirbman he gets struck by lightening
finds a job and stops his fighting for good
in a perfect world

Chorus
But this is not a perfect world
no this is not a perfect world
no this is not a perfect world
no this is not a perfect world
we live in

(instumentel)

What really happened was to cliche
he sat right there and there he stayed for good
You know its not a perfect world

He died just six months later
as a junkie and a kirbman
the people say ,
its us to blame

They say its you to blame its your own shame
its you to blame its your own shame
its you to blame , now hes dead

Chorus
But this is not a perfect world
no this is not a perfect world
no this is not a perfect world
no this is not a perfect world
we live in
Track Name: Four walls
The postman on your street brings empty letters
the letters that you read must be a lie
Where you confide

So button up your coat now for the weekend
the weather man tells us to stay inside
where we confide

Chorus
So close your curtains lock your doors
stay inside in your four walled world
So close your curtains lock your doors
stay inside in your four walled world

The firemen bring hoses heavy showers
the letters they wash down towards the sea
youll never see

so button up your coat now for the weekend
were staying in our world within four walls
theyl never fall

Now the clouds they move like funerals in the daytime
the winter its gets in through concrete wall
theyl never fall

Chorus
So close your curtains lock your doors
stay inside in your four walled world
So close your curtains lock your doors
stay inside in your four walled world
Track Name: Blamed
She walked through the mountains of her pain
she walked away and im to blame
and she walks away from
me shes tactically insane
and she uses the trains she want
she doesnt turn to look back once
ive gotta say that one hurts

She tamed me like noe before
she thought that she was evening the scores
and she uses the words she talks
to devastate me with
she spits them in my face
and she leaves without a melody
or a message for her heir
she doesnt recognise the fair
ive gotta say ,
that one hurts

Well i took her to the camp on the hill and i changed her mind
i took her to the camp on the hill and i took whats mine
Well i took her to the camp on the hill and i changed her mind
i took her to the camp on the hill and i took whats mine

and she walks away from
me shes tactically insane
and she uses the trains she want
she doesnt turn to look back once
ive gotta say that one hurts

wooooooooooooooo.........
