Track Name: Lost
You won't leave us so easy
you still have a family
and you're going to repay us
from the damage you have made

Look at the crowds
that come to worship you
They, just like you,
live from a memory

You are just a money making puppet
but it's just what you deserve
You're compleyely disconnected
there is no turning back

Oh, how I loved you
but you always let me down
But, unlike you,
I can see what's going on
Track Name: On the Road
Well, life has been good to me
I can't complain
I've got all that I wanted
I made it

Night after night
the crowd roars for me
but I'm too high
to remember where I am

Why do I feel so empty inside
now that my dream has come true?
This is a circus and I'm in the cage
with no chance to run away

I've got twenty different cars
and I live in a mansion
I married a super model,
we moved to L.A

Night after night
the girls cry for me
and after the show
all their dreams come true

Why do I feel so empty inside
now that my dream has come true?
This is a circus and I'm in the cage
with no chance to run away

My wife called me
to say our daughter was born
I'll get to meet her
when I end this tour

Why do I feel so empty inside
now that my dream has come true?
This is a circus and I'm in the cage
with no chance to run away
Track Name: Summer
Faraway in time
you wish you could be
and there's no here one
by your side

You are locked away
in someone else's game
and you see no way out

All your childhood dreams
of a promised land
have shattered to pieces

And you finally face
the underlying truth
it's time to move on

And you feel so small in the universe
so irrelevant
And you feel that you can't breathe anymore
You're doomed to failure

Remember the summer of '68,
how every day seemed endless?

Do you recognize in yourself
the man you wanted to be?

And you feel so small in the universe
so irrelevant
And you feel that you can't breathe anymore
You're doomed to failure
Track Name: There's No Way Out
I am caught in a maze
looking for the way out
where's the thrill? where's the joy?
Where's the adventure
that I once lived for?
Am I the person that I once was?
I am desperate to find my path again
trying to get out

Where have the colours gone?
'cause all I see is black and white
when was the last time
something took my breath away?
Now my fantasies
are all set in the past
trying to wake again
the freshness of it all

And I fear it won't come back
because when you left you took all I was

I am caught in a maze
looking for the way out
Where's the thrill? Where's the joy?
Where's the adventure
that I once lived for?
Am I the person that I once was?
I am desperate to find my path again
trying to get out

Where has the music gone?
all those nights that I spent writing?
Why did I give up my creativity?
Where's the excitement
of finding something new?
Now all I have left
is idealizing the past

And I fear it won't come back
because when you left you took all I was

I am caught in a maze
looking for the way out
where's the thrill? where's the joy?
Where's the adventure?
that I lived for
Am I the person that I once was?
I am desperate to find my path again
trying to get out
Track Name: Meant to Be
A lifetime later
we meet by chance
like it was destiny

I've always known
that you were the one
that got away

You make me feel
like I'm whole again
and I see that you
feel the same
Now we're older
and I won't let
you get away
like the first time

Let's run away
leave everything
behind
We'll start a new life
just the two of us
it's not a dream

You make me feel
like I'm whole again
and I see that you
feel the same
Now we're older
and I won't let
you get away
like the first time
Track Name: Unleashed
I don't want to wake up,
I know I'll endure your abuse
and the days getting near when
I won't be able to hold
the monster within

Now I'm left all alone
what have I done?
you were all to me
I won't ever be able to live with myself
this is the end

I hide away on my world
where everything's safe
I hide away on my own fantasy
and you'll never get me there

I hide away on my world
where everything's safe
I hide away on my own fantasy
and you'll never get me there
Track Name: Like There's No Tomorrow
I can't control this hunger
I've got to have you now
I won't control this hunger
you're going to be mine

Live like there's no tomorrow
there is no other way
Live like there's no tomorrow
´cause tomorrow never knows

This is my only ritual
It's what keeps me alive
it's the only thrill left
now my life is insane

Live like there's no tomorrow
there is no other way
Live like there's no tomorrow
´cause tomorrow never knows

Now I'm free to do what I want
Nothing can stop me
Now I'm free to do what I want
as long as you're with me

You are my only escape
the one that still remains
And if I have you with me
there's nothing left to crave

Live like there's no tomorrow
there is no other way
Live like there's no tomorrow
´cause tomorrow never knows

Now I'm free to do what I want
Nothing can stop me
Now I'm free to do what I want
as long as you're with me

Now I'm free to do what I want
Nothing can stop me
Now I'm free to do what I want
as long as you're with me

I try to convince myself
That today was the last time
but the next day I can't control it
and the hunger reigns again
Track Name: Time to Realize You'll Never Open Your Eyes
I've grown tired of hoping that you
would open your eyes and notice me
It has been in vain, you've always been a lost cause
and I regret all the time that I lost
I wish you could give it back

All my life I've been waiting
for you to notice me
Your neglect has made me stronger
nothing has effect on me

You were always in your world
you didn't let us in
even though we were the only ones that cared for you
There's no happy ending even though I always hoped
I could be your anchor, I could help you

I wish I could help you

All my life I've been waiting
for you to notice me
Your neglect has made me stronger
nothing has effect on me

I wish I could've met you
before the veil was broken
I loved you
but you can't
even notice me

After all these years my love has turned to rage
you abandoned us, I will have my revenge
It's your turn to help me

All my life I've been waiting
for you to notice me
Your neglect has made me stronger
nothing has effect on me

I wish I could've met you
before the veil was broken
I loved you
but you can't
even notice me
