So, whenever they'll say that all we had is bound to fall
Oh, together we'll stay (when you get in our way, when you get in our way)
Strange, how everything seems to float in grey and drown in gold
Stay, and everything's save (when we're pulling our way, when we're pulling our own way down)
I'll rise and guess where I will go
I'll rise and guess where I (go)

Where do we go when the streets are calling (calling, calling)
How do we know when we each stop falling (falling, falling)

Say, that everything caves in on our way to grander goals
Wait, and everything's save (when we let it all in, let it all in)
How, letting it rain, our own distress, our own mistakes
Wait, till everything breaks (when we're pulling our way, when we're pulling our own way down)
I'll rise and guess where I will go
I'll rise and guess where I (go)

Where do we go when the streets are calling (calling, calling)
How do we know when we each stop falling (falling, falling)
Where do we go when the streets are calling (calling, calling)
How do we know when we each stop falling (falling, falling)

I'll rise and guess where I will go
I'll rise and guess where I will
I'll rise and guess where I will go
I'll rise and guess where I will
Where do we go when the streets are calling (calling, calling)
How do we know when we each stop falling (falling, falling)

Where do we go when the streets are calling (calling, calling)
How do we know when we each stop falling (falling, falling)
Where do we go when the streets are calling (calling, calling)
How do we know when we each stop falling (falling, falling)

All for Nothing

length: 4:51
writer: Niels Zuiderhoek, Fritz Rating, Eloi Youssef, Casper Starreveld, Jan Haker, Niels van den Berg
Hurry up now don't you know that I'm waiting
For the way you will find how to ruin it all
All that you're bending is all that I'm breaking
For the way you will build is the way you will fall
[Is it all we live for now I see you don't get it]
[When you call it a loss and I call it a win]
And I know
That I will be ready
Or I will be dead again
I know in my head
I know in my heart

That I will be better
Than I would've ever been
Or all that we had
Was all for nothing after all

Hurry up now don't you see that I'm fading
Into older man's grey and oblivion light
Who would I be to forgive and embrace
When your talk is as low as your head is high
Is it all we live for now I see you don't get it
When you call it a loss and I call it a win

And I know
That I will be ready
Or I will be dead again
I know in my head
I know in my heart

That I will be better
Than I would've ever been
Or all that we had
Was all for nothing after all

And I know
That I will be ready
Or I will be dead again
I know in my head
I know in my heart
That I will be better
Than I would've ever been
Or all that we had

And I know
That I will be ready
Or I will be dead again
It's all in my head
It's all in my heart

And I will be better
Than I would've ever been
Or all that we had

Done With It

So now the best are right
So now the best are wrong
Don't, don't, don't, don't you want it?
Don't, don't, don't, don't you know?
That when the blessed arise
They'll be the last to fall
Don't, don't, don't, don't you want it?
So, so, so you want me gone
You want me gone but now
You know we can't stop right here
We can't stop right here
So no, I won't be gone and out
Oh yeah, you guessed it right there
We can't stop right here now

Oh, I'm done with it [x4]

So now the best for last
Don't want the rest to know
Done, done, done what you wanted
Done, done, done what you know
Now we're the last to rise
And we're the last to go
Don't, don't, don't, don't you want it?

So, so, so you want me gone
You want me gone but now
You know we can't stop right here
We can't stop right here
So no, I won't be gone and out
Oh yeah, you guessed it right there
We can't stop right here now
Not by a win you're in though
Not by a win you're high
Oh but again you ride
And go, go, out of sight
Not by a win you're in though
Not by a win you're high
Oh, yeah you guessed it right there
We can't stop right here now

Oh, I'm done with it [x2]

You wanted all in [x4]
You wanted all in
You wanted it so
[x4]

So you want me gone
You want me gone but now
You know we can't stop right here
We can't stop right here
So no, I won't be gone and out
Oh yeah, you guessed it right there
We can't stop right here now

Not by a win you're in though
Not by a win you're high
Oh but again you ride
And go, go, out of sight
Not by a win you're in though
Not by a win you're high
Oh, yeah you guessed it right there
We can't stop right here now

Oh, I'm done with it [x4]

System

length: 3:26
writer: Niels van den Berg, Niels Zuiderhoek, Fritz Rating, Casper Starreveld, Eloi Youssef, Jan Haker
Gone down in a spiral again
Either pull up or dive in descent
But I hold on to lies with a grin
That I know where to go, that I like where I stand
And when I light it again
I'll breathe in then forget how to breathe out
So I'll decide it again
How my low is my high, how my up is my down

But no, don't ever leave me out, here

(Gave it away, gave it away)
I got a system
(Gave it away, gave it away)
But it breaks me up
(Gave it away, gave it away)
It's my decision
(Gave it away, gave it away)
But I feel like a fool

And all I am trying to gain
I'll seed it then forget how to reap now
So I'll deny it again
How your wrong is my right
How your luck is my doubt
But no, don't ever leave me out, here

(Gave it away, gave it away)
I got a system
(Gave it away, gave it away)
But it breaks me up
(Gave it away, gave it away)
It's my decision
(Gave it away, gave it away)
But I feel like a fool
Don't ever leave me out
Though you're rolling your eyes again
Don't ever leave me on
My own down here

Don't ever leave me out
Though you're putting up fights again
Don't ever leave me all
The way down here

(Gave it away, gave it away)
I got a system
(Gave it away, gave it away)
But it breaks me up
(Gave it away, gave it away)
It's my decision
(Gave it away, gave it away)
But I feel like a fool

Riddles

length: 3:29
writer: Niels Zuiderhoek, Niels van den Berg, Fritz Rating, Casper Starreveld, Jan Haker, Eloi Youssef
Get it now
Tell me how to get it now
To hold it in or let it out
Tell me to go, or stay
Headed now
Slow me where we're headed now
If only I'd have read the signs
I wouldn't be here going to waste

I really don't know
Oh, lost it a little
Don't go, must be a riddle
Don't you know
Oh, lost in your riddles
Lost in your riddles

Where we will go, we'll be lost in the middle
Where we will go, I'll be lost in your riddles
Better now
Tell me is it better now
To keep you right here by my side
Or have you like smoke, to fade

Settle down
If only I could settle down
I know that I'd have read the lines
And wouldn't be here going to waste

But I really don't know
Oh, lost it a little
Don't go, must be a riddle
Don't you know
Oh, I'm lost in your riddles
Lost in your riddles
But I really want to know
Oh, lost it a little
Don't go, must be a riddle
Don't you know
Oh, I'm lost in your riddles
Lost in your riddles
Where we will go, we'll be lost in the middle
Where we will go, I'll be lost in your riddles
Where we will go, we'll be lost in the middle
Where we will go, I'll be lost in your riddles

War

length: 2:57
writer: Niels van den Berg, Niels Zuiderhoek, Fritz Rating, Casper Starreveld, Jan Haker, Eloi Youssef
So, cut my hands and pull my arms in
All unforeseen but no surprise
For all the men in all your armies
Throw only bait that no one bites
Up and away we all go
Into the way we run
There you will find our stronghold
Though you won't find our guns
Up and away we all go
Into the way we run
There you will find our stronghold

We won't go to war

No we won't go to war
No we won't go to war
Say, all your time is almost done here
Waste all your light on other ones

Up and away we all go
Into the way we run
There you will find our stronghold
We won't go to war

No we won't go to war
No won't go to war
No we won't go to war
No won't go to war
We're getting away

No we won't go to war
No we won't go to war
(To deny it, To deny it
Is to go when you know that you're in it)
No we won't go to war
No we won't go to war

Don’t Walk Away

[Intro]
Don't walk away, no
Don't walk away, no
Don't walk away, no
Don't walk away, no

[Verse 1]
All that you'll need, I will give
All what you'll read, I will write
Don't end it, don't end it
All the time I will wait here

'til all I could see is out of sight
And all I will be is out of line
Don't end it, don't end it now
But all the time you'll go

[Chorus]
When you're doing alright again
And you'd rather go, rather go on
Now you knew that our time would end
Then you'd better go, better go on
So I ruined your pride again
And you'd rather go, rather go on
Oh, I know you're right. I know you're right
Just don't walk away, no
Don't walk away, no
Don't walk away, no
Don't walk away, no
Don't walk away, no

[Verse 2]
All what you'll mean, I will get
And all that you seek I will find for you
Don't end it, don't end it
All my time I'll waste here

Why can't I be the one you need?
Why can't I be all your light?
Don't end it, don't end it now
But all the time you'll go

[Chorus]
When you're doing alright again
And you'd rather go, rather go on
Now you knew that our time would end
Then you'd better go, better go on
So I ruined your pride again
And you'd rather go, rather go on
Oh, I know you're right. I know you're right
Just don't walk away, no

Oh, don't walk away, no
Oh, don't walk away, no
Oh, don't walk away, no

[Chorus]
So this time we'll go
When you're doing alright again
And you'd rather go, rather go on
Now you knew that our time would end
Then you'd better go, better go on
So I ruined your pride again
And you'd rather go, rather go on
Oh, I know you're right. I know you're right
Just don't walk away, no

[Outro]
Don't walk away, no
Don't walk away, no
Don't walk away, no
Don't walk away, no

Little Light

length: 5:08
writer: Niels van den Berg, Niels Zuiderhoek, Fritz Rating, Casper Starreveld, Jan Haker, Eloi Youssef
Going out on a weekday
Hoping on the collide with a soul that
Knows a heart from a lie when you show it
Sees a heart in the lie that you show
I'll deny all the weak play
Not a style that I take any pride in
But the greed of my mind isn't going
All the greed of my mind isn't going away

Have some
But I'll be taking it all again
Yeah, I'll be taking it all
And on my way
And on my way

I wanted it all

Hey, I can see a little light here
Know that I'm ready to fight
Oh, but I'll run and I'll hide again
Hey, I can see a little light there
Know I should get up and try
Oh, but I'm better at hiding it
Going out on a weekday
Knowing all of my pride will dissolve in
All the seeds of my mind that are growing
Oh, the seed of my mind isn't going away

Have some
But I'll be taking it all again
Yeah, I'll be taking it all
And on my way
And on my way

I wanted it all
Hey, I can see a little light here
Know that I'm ready to fight
Oh, but I'll run and I'll hide again
Hey, I can see a little light there
Know I should get up and try
Oh, but I'm better at hiding it

When I'll wait
For the dueling to get a little cold again
Then no one but I will know me
When all of my light ends
[x2]

Hey, I can see a little light here
Know that I'm ready to fight
Oh, but I'll run and I'll hide again
Hey, I can see a little light there
Know I should get up and try
Oh, but I'm better at hiding it.

Words You Don’t Know

length: 3:51
writer: Niels Zuiderhoek, Niels van den Berg, Fritz Rating, Casper Starreveld, Jan Haker, Eloi Youssef

Hold it in long when you breathe it in
And it all will be a better shade, love
So it is a lie you believe in?
I know it is a sight to behold

If only there's a line when you need it
All to get a way with words you don't know

How many times will you beat it in
'til all that was alight has gone dark?
I know you want to fly but you needn't
Take everything and bringing it down

But no we had to try to achieve it
Oh, you got a way with words you don't know

So, you got here just to get away
You got here just to get away
But only will the right hands know
To hold, and lead you in a better way
Lead you in a better way
Only in the right hands
Only in the right hands

Open up wide, now get it inside
And leave it inside and lay low
What a happy day, what a happy day
There you go, there you go
There you go and you're gone

All of those lies
They're creeping inside
Now will we hold on or let go?
For the life of me, for the life of me
I don't know, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know

And so, you got here just to get away
You got here just to get away
But only will the right hands know
To hold, and lead you in a better way
Lead you in a better way
Only in the right hands
Only in the right hands

Oh, when we get away
Oh, when we get away
All will be alright
All will be alright

So, you got here just to get away
You got here just to get away
But only will the right hands know
To hold, and lead you in a better way
Lead you in a better way
Only in the right hands
Only in the right hands

You got here just to get away
You got here just to get away
But no one with the right hands knows
That oh, you're ready for a better day
You're ready for a better day
Only in the right hands
Only in the right hands

Rivals

Down by the waves
We're holding on to all that we have
We hold it all
But the rise of the tide has its own weight
And we'll know that the cries in the wind
Are the lies that we lived
I'll blame it on the fires that you lit
You'll blame it on
All the lies in the games, but we both played
I'd retire but I'm struck by a want-to-know

Can we rise?
Going our way through the night
Can we grow and unite

Will we come back to wait for
A greater dawn
We'll come back to wait for
A greater dawn
But we ain't coming round
We ain't coming round, round, round

Down by the weight
It threw me how you nighted the day
It throws me how
We'll rely on the role that we're both playing
I'd resign but I'm stuck in a need-to-know
Can we rise?
Going our way through the night
Can we grow and unite

Will we come back to wait for
A greater dawn
We'll come back to wait for
A greater dawn
But we ain't coming round
We ain't coming round, round

Will we come back to wait for
A greater dawn
We'll come back to wait for
A greater dawn
But we ain't coming round
We ain't coming round, round, round
All the way down
To fold a strong hand
Too great to overcome
Way down, way down
[x4]

We'll come back to wait for
A greater dawn
We'll come back to wait for
A greater dawn
But we ain't coming round
We ain't coming round, round

We'll come back to wait for
A greater dawn
We'll come back to wait for
A greater dawn
But we ain't coming round
We ain't coming round, round, round.

All for Nothing (radio edit)

Hurry up now don't you know that I'm waiting
For the way you will find how to ruin it all
All that you're bending is all that I'm breaking
For the way you will build is the way you will fall
And I know
That I will be ready
Or I will be dead again
I know in my head
I know in my heart

That I will be better
Than I would've ever been
Or all that we had
Was all for nothing after all

Hurry up now don't you see that I'm fading
Into older man's grey and oblivion light
Who would I be to forgive and embrace
When your talk is as low as your head is high

Is it all we live for now I see you don't get it
When you call it a loss and I call it a win
And I know
That I will be ready
Or I will be dead again
I know in my head
I know in my heart

That I will be better
Than I would've ever been
Or all that we had
Was all for nothing after all

And I know
That I will be ready
Or I will be dead again
I know in my head
I know in my heart
That I will be better
Than I would've ever been
Or all that we had

And I know
That I will be ready
Or I will be dead again
It's all in my head
It's all in my heart

And I will be better
Than I would've ever been
Or all that we had.
