Do I Ever

length: 3:25
writer: Eloi Youssef, Casper Starreveld, Niels van den Berg, Jan Haker

Can't sit around holding up my guard
Let it all go
Let it all go around
Go in and face the inevitable
Can't figure out how to play my part
Where do I go?
How do I go around
Go in and make it inhabitable

Now let it all in

Cover up the arm that holds the weight
Raging on too long and all will stay
Unsolved

I let it throw me off my feet
I let it put me on my knees
What do I know
I ought to grow
But do I ever?

Can't sit around hiding all my scars
Let them all show
Let them all know about
Go in and embrace the inevitable
Now let it all in

Cover up the arm that holds the weight
Raging on too long and all will stay
Unsolved

I let it throw me off my feet
I let it put me on my knees
What do I know
I ought to grow
But do I ever?
Take away all I could be
Take all the best of me away with it
I let it
Take away all I could see
Take all the best of me
away with it

I let it throw me off my feet
I let it put me on my knees
What do I know
I ought to grow
But do I ever?
I'll let it tell me who to be
I'll let it show me what to see
What do I know
I ought to grow
But do I ever?

Fiji

length: 2:41
writer: Eloi Youssef, Casper Starreveld, Niels van den Berg, Jan Haker
Whenever the day will break
Another mistake will take hold
Of every inch of an honest state
A hell of a case you'd make
If only the tides weren't so strong
You're letting it in all your darkest ways

Now how does it end?

Not all we're building up is indestructible
But all we're hoping for we'll know how to get it though
Not all we're building up is indestructible
But all we're hoping for we'll know how
To get in a constant phase
Of digging a heart-shaped grave for ourselves
Waste it all away
Inside of a king-sized cage
Enough of the comforts of home
But none of it all fades the bars away
Now how does it end?

Not all we're building up is indestructible
But all we're hoping for we'll know how to get it though
Not all we're building up is indestructible
But all we're hoping for we'll know how to get it

Hold on unless you want to go it alone

Slicer

length: 3:16
writer: Eloi Youssef, Casper Starreveld, Niels van den Berg, Jan Haker
What do you take me for?
I will never be an open door
I'm the threat in your dreams
The trick up your sleeves
I'm the clod in your veins
What do you blame me for?
We were never seeing soul to soul
I'm the drag in your feet
The guilt that you plead
I'm the wear in your brakes

Then how do we get

Stone cold red hot and
And now we're on like a thunder
Soon all ends go dead
Then how will we get away?
What are you aiming for?
I will never be the one to call
When your heart is in need
the coward in me
Will be all that you face

Why do you say no more?
Was the heaven that I sold you on
Just a trifling daze?
a glorious cage?
And it all was in vain?
Then how do we get

Stone cold red hot and
And now we're on like a thunder
Soon all ends go dead
Then how will we get away?

I deleted
All that I am
Seems to be dead
Don't you waste it

Regret

length: 3:39
writer: Eloi Youssef, Casper Starreveld, Niels van den Berg, Jan Haker
To rise
To rule
Two heights I've never been
Cause your mouth's an avalanche
That won't let me breathe
No pride
No growth
No fight I'll ever win
Decisive evidence
But it won't set me free

Now please don't
set it in stone
I'll try to leave again today

So please don't
Set it in stone
I'm just a drop against a wave

Regret

So in time
But on hold
You'll learn the evident
If I'd be a better man
Then we'd rest in peace but
In spite
Enthralled
So to whatever end
I'll try to leap again
But don't grab my feet

Now please don't
set it in stone
I'll try to leave again today

So please don't
Set in stone
I'm just a drop against a wave
Regret

Can't get out
When all I want to lose
Won't stop now
And everything I choose
Will break down
I never wanted to stay this long with anyone
Can't get out
When all I want to lose
Won't stop now
And everything I choose
Will break down
For everything I did I now feel regret

Now please don't set it in stone
So please don't set it in stone

All Before You

length: 3:40
writer: Casper Starreveld, Jan Haker, Niels van den Berg, Eloi Youssef
The longer we wait the better we get
One other good day and I'll believe it
I want to be safe out here
Unharmed forever
Instead I will bathe in fear
too fooled to get it
But I will warn you
That I've done this all before you
And I hoped I had it in me
But I just don't get it
Yet
No

Why let it in if I won't keep it?
Throw in a safe part of the flame and I will feed it
And If I knew how to play sincere I swear I'd do it
But every trace of tears will turn my head again
And I will warn you
That I've done this all before you
And I hoped I had it in me
But I just don't get it
Yet
But I hope to
Cause I've seen this all before you
And I thought I had it in me
But I just don't get it
Yet
No

How did I end up here
All I give is worn out phrases
Cold embraces

Sorry

length: 3:47
writer: Eloi Youssef, Casper Starreveld, Niels van den Berg, Jan Haker
Sorry for the road that I won't take
For the words that I won't say
For the love that I won't give
Sorry for the heart that I won't show
For the lengths that I won't go
For the life that you won't live

Sorry that I opened up my arms
You would never reach in time before they closed again

You will forget
And I won't remember it
When all I ever did was race in circles
You will forget
And all there's left will be
A faded memory
A dream you woke up from
Sorry for the oath that I won't take
For the vows that I will break
For the role that I won't play

Sorry that I'm raising up my walls
And whenever you reached over
You are thrown back to the start
You will forget
And I won't remember it
When all I ever did was race in circles
You will forget
And all there's left will be
A faded memory
A dream you woke up from

From the colour I would bring
To ending up again
Opening darkness I wanted to hold you back from

Control

length: 4:36
writer: Eloi Youssef, Casper Starreveld, Niels van den Berg, Jan Haker
No control
How wonderful
How horrible
You see me guessing
Don't you know?
Thoughts explode
Unconjurable
Unstoppable
You see me lacking
Won't you grow?
Won't you

Believe
That even now you'll take hold
That even now you'll beat it
Don't you know?

Broke in two
How wonderful
How vulnerable
You see me laughing
Don't you know?
Don't you
Believe
That even now you'll take hold
That even now you'll beat it
Don't you know?

Breathe in
And even now you'll take hold
And lead it on till the end
Don't you know?
And all that is freedom
And all that enslaves
I'll never believe again

And all that is weakness
And all that is fake
Will never deceive again

Breathe in
And even now you'll take hold
And even now you'll beat it
Don't you know?

Believe
And even now you'll take hold
And even now you'll beat it
Don't you know?

Rely On

length: 2:40
writer: Eloi Youssef, Casper Starreveld, Niels van den Berg, Jan Haker
So that I'm beating the odds
And I'm running all the races
Won't solve
A fear that is causing the harm to overtake
I'd rather be on the end of freedom
I'll seek it
But I've got to have you
To rely on
To rely on
Yeah I've got to have you
To rely on
To rely on

Hold onto a reason to stall but we've gone through all the phases
I hoped to open it all but you guard the only gate my enemy
On the edge of leaving all we had for better days
You can't compete with my demons
But I've got to have you
To rely on
To rely on
Yeah I've got to have you
To rely on
To rely on

We will go it on our own
High hopes for the road to come
We will go it on our own
High hopes that we'll get there
We will go it on our own
High hopes
But I've got to have you
To rely on
To rely on
Yeah I've got to have you
To rely on
To rely on

Bridges

length: 3:39
writer: Eloi Youssef, Casper Starreveld, Niels van den Berg, Jan Haker
Yet another unstable weekend
We bought our own praise with easy goals
And we're off to sell it as the greatest story told
Yet another ungraceful evening
Another man's faith
An easy foe
And we're off to shiver in the face of the unknown

Though we long together for the tables to turn
Though we pray together for the bridges to burn
Still we stay cold
Yet another ungrateful weekday
We're caught in a game where the winner takes all
And we're off to tell it as the greatest story told

Though we long together for the tables to turn
Though we pray together for the bridges to burn
Still we stay cold
We got carried away by it
We got carried away from home
We got carried away by it
We got carried away from home

Storms

length: 4:12
writer: Eloi Youssef, Casper Starreveld, Niels van den Berg, Jan Haker
I don't want to be alarmed
I don't want to know what's coming
I don't want to lie here
Waiting for my end
If I knew how to fight it
I would never go never go dark

I will never be a storm again
But if it's easier now then I'll pretend
I'll never be a storm again
But if it's easier now then I'll pretend
Don't want to be alone
But genuine lives won't appear
On the horizon
Oh what a long wait
If there's no way to find it
Will I ever calm ever calm down?

I will never be a storm again
But if it's easier now then I'll pretend
I'll never be a storm again
But if it's easier now then I'll pretend
to leave it all
Am I pretending

St. Helena

length: 4:43
writer: Eloi Youssef, Casper Starreveld, Niels van den Berg, Jan Haker

[Verse 1]
And when the heat is gone
And the fire is out
And a breeze of cold
Air is surrounding all
When the fools at heart
Fall in truth apart
Stay in lies together

[Verse 2]
And when the greed is growing
And we're finding out
Who to lay on
Where to fight it out
How our days were strong
When we spoke as one
Now we mime together

[Verse 3]
So now we've been around
And we've seen it all
Steady breathing in
And we scream it out
Then we're doing it all over
We hug it out
And we cry together

[Verse 4]
But as the haze cleared up
And our eyes see all
Then we'll chew it up
Just to spit it out
So you wanted it all
Well you got my bones
For you to hide forever

[Chorus]
We're doing it all over
We're doing it all again
We're doing it all over
We're doing it all again
We're doing it all over
We're doing it all again
We're doing it all over
We're doing it all again
We're doing it all over
We're doing it all again
We're doing it all over
We're doing it all again

[Verse 5]
And when the heat is gone
Then we're better hide
In the weekend homes
That we're burning down
Let the flames all grow
Let us breathe the smoke
Till we die together
And then we'll see it
