Monument

length: 0:47

I've built you up and it's tore me down
Got me chasing boats and running around
I'm sat in the corner of this circle house
Impossible numbers are spinning round
And the plans were told and the stones were rolled
And I'm always ready when it's time to go
I still get a shock when I'm down below
Looking up at what you've become
There's a million ways to describe your face
And all of them are good
I could count the times you've inspired my lines
But I don't think that I should
You're like a cathedral
A monument in my mind
A tower in the ocean
For miles and miles I can see your light
The further away the bigger you get
I can't make sense my perspective's wrecked
The directionless miles that I have trekked
Always lead me back it's a sure fire bet
Ziggurats and bridges and buildings in the clouds
Can only remind me of you
But you exist on a celestial scale, you pull me down like the Moon
There's a million ways to describe your face
And all of them are good
I could count the times you've inspired my lines
But I don't think that I should
You're like a cathedral
A monument in my mind
A tower in the ocean
For miles and miles I can see your light

What You Need

length: 3:35
Hey, here is the story
Forget about your troubles in life
Don't you know it's not easy
When you've gotta walk upon that line
That's why
You need
That's what
This is what you need
I'll give you what you need

Don't you get sad and lonely
You need a change from what you do all day
Ain't no sense in all your crying
Just pick it up and throw it into shape

Hey you won't you listen
This is not the end of it all
Don't you see there is a rhythm
I'll take you where you really need to be

Mind of the Wonderful

length: 9:18
guest lead vocals: Elles de Graaf
composer: Piet Blank, Jaspa Jones, Andy Kaufhold
lyricist: Adrian Broekhuyse, Raz Nitzan

Like a ghost that came from an old beginning
you heated up a freezing destiny
but I told myself I had a change to live a better life by loving someone new
Chorus:
I miss the mind of the wonderful
I let the icy thoughts run through me cold
and no one knows
I keep the pain of a broken soul
wounds that just won't heal and no one knows
not even you!
We had a love, a future - we are honest
but my truth held so many little lies
Can't turn the page, can't rerrange
It's written in the sand and tide is moving in.
Cold is the night
Cold are my hands
Cold as my heart

lyricist: Robert Smith

Come closer and see
See into the trees
Find the girl
While you can
Come closer and see
See into the dark
Just follow your eyes
Just follow your eyes
I hear her voice
Calling my name
The sound is deep
In the dark
I hear her voice
And start to run
Into the trees
Into the trees
Into the trees
Suddenly I stop
But I know it's too late
I'm lost in a forest
All alone
The girl was never there
It's always the same
I'm running towards nothing
Again and again and again
Thanks to thudord

Perfect Silence

length: 6:15
guest lead vocals: Christiane Hebold
The most perfect silence is
When there is no need to speak
The most perfect silence is
When there's no need to explain

The most perfect moment is
When we just come from different circumstances
But the stream of lust flows into the same direction

The most perfect silence is
When there's no need of showing
Something is true
When you see the same pictures
From another point of view

When there's no need to search the outside
No need to linger on
Not a single something left to distract you
No need to want

[Repeat x2]
Don't you see how I long
How I long
For that moment to come?

The most perfect silence is
When there's no need to speak
The most perfect silence is
When there's no need to explain

When there's no need to search the outside
No need to linger on
Not a single something left to distract you
No need to want

[Repeat x2]
Don't you see how I long
How I long
For that moment to come?
