A thought of your face on lonely days, feels like home. The lines written by your hand that you sent, feel like home. But nothing feels more like home than to be with you. Nothing feels more true. [Refrain] When I'm with you in your arms smelling your skin, falling for your charms. I can't imagine anymore how does it feel when I have to let you go. A picture that I see of you and me, feels like home. The smell from your clothes in my nose, feels like home. But nothing feels more like home than to be with you. Nothing feels more true. [Refrain] When I'm with you in your arms smelling your skin, falling for your charms. I can't imagine anymore how does it feel when I have to let you go. The imagination that only thoughts remain of you when you're gone seems unbearably wrong. Nothing feels more like home than to be with you. I can't imagine anymore how does it feel when I have to let you go. [Refrain] When I'm with you in your arms smelling your skin, falling for your charms. I can't imagine anymore how does it feel when I have to let you go.

You are not still alone, let the doubts that have grown be my own. Your sorrows provide a place for her to hide deep inside. Fed by doubt and by fear that’s when she will appear whispering in your ear. I know your Soul Creature, let me go deeper to reap her. [Refrain] Let go of your doubt, time for breaking out, turn your soul wide open, I can give you hope and … Let go of your doubt, time for breaking out, turn your soul wide open, I can give you hope and … I can give you … You are not still alone let the doubts that have grown be my own. Your sorrows provide a place for her to hide deep inside. Fed by doubt and by fear that’s when she will appear whispering in your ear. I know your Soul Creature, let me go deeper to reap her. [Refrain] Let go of your doubt, time for breaking out, turn your soul wide open, I can give you hope and … Let go of your doubt, time for breaking out, turn your soul wide open, I can give you hope and … Let go of your doubt, Time for breaking out. The creature that has grown can't be fought alone. I'll always be on your side even in the darkest night. Together we are strong!

To the desert and highest mountains, battlegrounds you can't count and to outer space where all sounds end, a close race to map the new land. On a journey through the times, a competition of brilliant minds. All the letters building words and words building my universe. [Refrain] I wish I could be reading all I find, books are lovers of my mind. I have seen more than I'd have in a thousand lives combined. Talking animals: "Revolution!", H. G. Wells sees his execution. A billion smells in one brain, a brilliant murderer without fame. Cruel delusion poisons a heart, an illusion falling apart. All the letters building words and words building my universe. [Refrain] I wish I could be reading all I find, books are lovers of my mind. I have seen more than I'd have in a thousand lives combined.

Once again on the battlefield others decide when you yield. You have no name but they call you king. It's only their names you keep elevating. [Refrain] You've been guarded and led to battle, believed to be lost and touched a thousand times. Brought to life, no time to settle, always caught in a battle of minds. Tired of the battles you fight, followers falling by your side. Not afraid but you've had enough, too similar are the ones you face off. Being king is your role to play but on the board you have nothing to say. Even if you disapprove, others always guide your move. [Refrain] You've been guarded and led to battle, believed to be lost and touched a thousand times. Brought to life, no time to settle, always caught in a battle of minds.

I was born under the sea, constant danger surrounded me, in the darkness, in the cold where no sunrays will unfold. I'm not the monster from your tales but that's the notion that prevails. You didn't know but keep in mind I'm the last of my kind. [Refrain 1] We were around, even then, long before the dawn of man. For centuries suspected, decades hunted but not detected. They call me Architeuthis. [Refrain 2] And now I show myself as a proof of natures wealth. I'll be the last of many that were killed before me and nobody did ever see. More than once I had to fight against my adversaries' might. The only well known trails were on the skin of those whales. All those fights from my past have been fierce but also just. Unlike those fought with man, a lost cause since it began. They don't notice that in the end their own behavior, once again, shortens their own life's span. [Refrain 1] We were around, even then, long before the dawn of man. For centuries suspected, decades hunted but not detected. They call me Architeuthis. [Refrain 2] And now I show myself as a proof of natures wealth. I'll be the last of many that were killed before me and nobody did ever see.

Too late, no heart beats. Too late, just death feeds. We're building bridges and streets over ridges to supply his needs. He's not a stranger at all but we don't want to recall that we know him as well but nobody wants to tell. Even on days without violence where there seems to be silence we're thoughtless on our way, we're feeding death every day. [Refrain] He swallows the light of eyes like catching fireflies. It's frightening to realize how easy he takes our lifes. Too late, no heart beats. Too late, just death feeds. We're building bridges and streets over ridges to supply his needs. We are the helpers of death willing to prepare the path. But one day we will stand lonely at the end. [Refrain] He swallows the light of eyes like catching fireflies. It's frightening to realize how easy he takes our lifes.

I've known for a long time that you are what others always are searching for. The word love is used too much to describe the feelings when I feel your touch. [Refrain] To love you is so easy. I can't imagine why it wouldn't work. Together we have gone through the lows as well as all highs but I've always known happiness lies in one another. So being apart is getting harder. [Refrain] To love you is so easy. I can't imagine why it wouldn't work. I know that you know that I'll always love you. It's too cruel to move on when all but memories is gone. It's too cruel to stay sane when only memories remain. I've known for a long time that you are what others always are searching for. [Refrain] To love you is so easy. I can't imagine why it wouldn't work.

You're waking up and even then you realize there is the feeling once again that you disguise that you are not happy at all. It's only your fault cause you listened to lies that were told, fortune was sold but instead you easily let them take it away day by day. [Refrain] "Live the moment" is written on your back, self reflection is what you lack. Empty phrases and not much more, that's what it really stands for. The day is over you're going to bed. No more doubt about the lies that you were fed. You allowed yourself to be easily fooled. We know it's your fault cause you listened to lies that were told, fortune was sold but instead you easily let them take it away day by day. [Refrain] "Live the moment" is written on your back, self reflection is what you lack. Empty phrases and not much more, that's what it really stands for. You try to collect more and more to fill the emptiness in your core.

Weightless for a moment, safely caught in some arms, on the hunt for treasures, melting icicles in your mouth again. I can't remember when those started to fade away. Sometimes greater wisdom lies in the choice over things than in their understanding. Words leaving your lips unite to put questions forth, retreat in your pillow fort, unseen fellows enclosing you. I can't remember when those started to fade away. Looking at the world through children's eyes would reveal that self built prison walls rise.

I don't know you, you don't know me. I don't care cause I feel free to sing you a song cause you are the one I hear all the stories from. People talk about your drive you are the sunny side of life. I always wanted to sing and hum about the feelings (caused) by summer sun. Is it wrong or is it right? I don't care, I dream of you at night. Others might sound quite alright but nothing (really) sounds like Santa Monica!

Every day I hear the voice, I hear the voice in my head, every day a little less. So bit by bit ideology is replaced with resignation. It's replaced like this. I surrendered to the soothing pull of the masses. Instead of being true to my view I gave in and sold myself. My sharp tongue, once distinctive, is at a loss for words. Keeping quiet instead of speaking really hurts. I shut my eyes cause it's easier to put my mind at ease where no one sees. I will admit I'm a hypocrite. For too long I observed getting estranged from myself. It's time to change like this. Now it's time to say what I mean and mean what I say. My eyes have been blinded by the deceptive adamant world today. Far too long I was wandering on abstruse tortuous roads. I was wrong, always pondering, shouldering more loads. It's time to leave this maze behind!

Even without proof some believe to know the truth. A truth for everyone but often just for none but one. Foundations of proof can sometimes move. [Refrain] Lying on the bed thoughts turn around my head, like: Everything was always there or did it appear out of nowhere. This truth lifts my sorrow so I can sleep until tomorrow. Why? How? Where to? These questions plague all but few. Phrases are returned as far as answers are concerned. Truth's caught in the division between science and religion. [Refrain] Lying on the bed thoughts turn around my head, like: Everything was always there or did it appear out of nowhere. This truth lifts my sorrow so I can sleep until tomorrow. Everything was always there or did it appear out of nowhere.
