Track Name: Victorious for a While
Lord knows you tried, lord knows you did
Now she's crucified and she's holding tight to what you said
Ain't it just the life you claimed you always wanted?
With your make-believe friends, great achievements and your past forgotten?

So how are you holding on?
How are you holding on?
How are you holding on?
Are you holding on?

You think you've broken all the rules
You think you've played her like a fool
But damn' that guilt, always in the way
And you stumble, and you're tumbling down again
Track Name: The Change in Me
So you made up your mind to leave it all behind
You claim it's what you gotta do,
the only way you'll break loose
But nothing feels true, Let alone me and you
Radar says I am out of range
Gauges indicate I'm deranged
But the change in me is something I don't wanna be
It's strange, but you can clearly see
Today I'll be whatever you want me to be
Track Name: Hometown
What to do with all these memories?
Flashing by in my mind
How to build my perfect world to live in, with you,
And do you even want me to?

When there's so much more to see
When there's so much more to believe in
So many ways to find it and keep it
Still, I just want to stay right here

Remember where we used to play?
Remember when we used to dream away?

Where they know my face and my name
My hometown will always be the same to me
Oh, if you could only see what I see

Cos' I'm walking 'round my hometown
Travelling to the past
Slowly it'll all fade away
Maybe I am walking too fast?

Do you remember?
Track Name: Detonator
Don't come near me again
I think I might explode
Cos' the way you touched my soul
doesn't feel the same no more
You should have known better
Than to leave my wires loose
Now I'm finding it hard to find a way to forgive you
Though your only crime was that button that you pushed
In a way nobody before you knew

So why?
I can't say,
nothing got along when you were away
and now you're back
and I can't stand the sight of you, baby
I just don't know what to do

Don't run away from me again
It's easier said than done
Cos' the way you touched my soul
Well, It makes me sick!
And I'm getting older and much too colder than before
They say,
we're all gonna laugh about it someday
but you'll learn what it means
to leave your love to burn
Track Name: Protected Space
This is my room where my youth used to bloom
Where I tried to avoid all the noises
Me and my soul, we have nowhere to go
Me and my soul have to much to bare
I need to control what gave me my biggest pleasure
I need to believe there's another treasure hiding somewhere
But I'm only sitting down, not looking around
for the peace of mind that I want to find

What's the use?
Track Name: Stop Time
Millions of visions
Emotions forsaken for perpetual motion
Please, oh please, somebody please stop time
From running from me

Innocent heartbeats of failed romances
Mentoring voices you've taken for granted
Please, oh please don't let these things slip away
Not until I find a better way to make them all stay
and calm me down cos' it feels as if the ground
is crumbling
Track Name: All Souls
Is this my heaven?
Is this my hell?
I think it's quite close to the truth
All souls are old
Keep seeing it all through resurrected eyes, colorful and wise
or merely a disguise
Calculating deeds, wrong and rights

Maybe it is not really all up to us
Maybe this is my second chance
But then again I might be suffering for a sin
A crime I haven't committed, a prize I don't deserve to win

Here's the song in your eyes
Here's the truth in your lies
Here's the song in your eyes

So if to reach the final hour is to see the light, brighter than white,
I think it's quite close to the truth
All souls revealed on a dream at night
All souls are in your mind

Though I've thought about the possibility of me not being me, only a soul incarnation
On a downtown bus in a twilight's dusk, does it simplify my observation?

Heaven on Earth?
Lifetime of hell?
I guess were all just too young to tell
Track Name: Maybe from a Treetop
It's sad to think nothing lives forever
That all just stops one sunny day

I wish my spirit would pick a treetop to sit upon
and watch the other trees as they grow out of reach
Track Name: If I could sing
If I could sing only for you, I'd probably sing forever

You must know,
You make me believe
That's what you mean to me

Sure, I'd rather be free and not tied to your affection

But if I could,
I guess I would,
I'd only sing in your direction.
Track Name: Flickers
Where's all the fame and glory?
Who promised you success so soon?
Maybe you'll be the first one to ever perform
on the moon and call for intergalactic peace...
Looking back now, on what you missed
Honestly, would you relive it all again?

Cos' are these flickers or shines?
Can never make up my mind!
I got too much time ahead before these words even
begin to rhyme and it's all gone too fast

Nothing's really made to last
The crowd might not go wild as you expose your inner-child
This sudden urge for recognition will slide away like a comet's tail,
Blazing through space and time, slowly undrawing the veil

Are these flickers or shines?
Always at the corner of my eye
You're gonna mix-up left and right
You will back down tonight.
