Track Name: Napalm
You think that you’re just being clever
But you got holes in your alibis
You said I’d do the same but I swear I’d never
I’ve got far too much pride
You’re way too hard to tame, a human hurricane
A place where nothing grows
And like a fireball you could ignite us all
But you’d rather slowly devour me

There was once a time when I thought you’d give more
I built a house out of lies and you blew down the door
You’re a well fed lion that steals scraps from the table
Just for fun and games
Until you’re bored again

You think that everybody is watching
But you’re alone in delinquency
You only cry cause baby wants it’s bottle
A god in virtual reality
With seven deadly sins you somehow count to ten
I need to turn you off
And like a dying sun you need to drag someone
With you down into your misery

There was once a time when I thought you’d give more
I built a house out of lies and you blew down the door
You’re a well fed lion that steals scraps from the table
Just for fun and games
Until you’re bored again

Further, deep into your darkest desires
You drag me down, drag me down
You stick to me like napalm

Ooooo ooo ooo oooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo oooo ooooooooo ooooooo oooo oooooo (Oooooo ooooo oooooo ooooo)

There was once a time when I thought you’d give more
I built a house out of lies and you blew down the door
You’re a well fed lion that steals scraps from the table
Just for fun and games
Until you’re bored again
Track Name: My Shooting Star
The rain falls down the gutter, gone
Forever, draining out of sight
The sky moves closer to the ground
And all these lovers claim the sea
She holds me as the sun goes down
And then I feel her warmth wash over me again

My name belongs to you my love
Forget it, it’s just a memory
I don’t exist when we’re apart
I’m just some shade on a sunny day
She tells me her and I are one
And then I feel the Earth move fiercely once again

Let’s kill silence like it was a sin
Your voice soothes better than the wind
We’ll drown sorrow deep in the ocean
And talk about our demons as if they were friends

Grab the car and drive all night
We burn horizons down
Red lined but not enough
We can take off from the ground
My shooting star
Track Name: A Lovely Way to Pass the Time
Good morning beautiful
Took a chance now we’re living a dream
There’s blue skies behind the storm
And there’s lightning in your eyes
Good morning unicorn
Finally found you after all these years
I can swear I’ll never let you go
If you can promise not to pull the plug on me

We kiss the world, cradle the sky
We hope for more
Cause we’ll get it baby

Black sheep Siamese
You and me against it all
Our love will echo through the halls of time
Armageddon couldn’t kill the alchemy
Don’t move, don’t shut your eyes
I wanna remember you like this forever

A lovely way to pass the time
Right next to you
And no one else baby
A lovely way to pass the time
Right next to you
And no one else baby
