2. All Eyes On Me (8:48)
[Music: Holmberg / Båth, Lyrics: Wassholm]

You watch my every step

Is this never enough
How I've been at your feet
Oh, to satisfy you
Must I bend 'til I break

Don't stare, Don't stand so close
Don't let me catch you touching me
I know just how it feels
Almost like someone judging me

If I act on my own will
How am I to be trusted
Just you watch, and I'll fail you
Just turn the lights up on me

All Eyes On Me

Good thing you're still around
I need you watching over me
Don't go changing your ways
I need you to watch my every step

What do you think you know about me
And my reasons to leave you behind
This loneliness surely is mine to control
For once something that's only mine

So stay on your side this time
Don't come near me again
Never touch me again
I don't want you near me

Don't stare, don't stand so close
Let me believe you're leaving me
You're still making me feel
Almost like someone touching me
3. Again (9:01)
[Music: Sigfridsson / Båth, Lyrics: Sigfridsson]

You made me fall again
The fear won't go away
tears never stop to fall
I made a sacrifice
I gave it all away

Shadows call again
I fight my fears in vain
I can not stop the pain
I guess I'll live this way
until you fade away

I'm trying to forget

Oh, again and again I try
But your eyes will not leave my mind
Oh, again and again

I may seem well, I'm not
My body's just a shell
for an inside hell
I am your sacrifice
you gave me all away

I won't take this fall, I won't
Fera may still be there
my tears still remain
But my wounds will heal
no more for you to steal

I'm trying to forgive

Oh, again and again I try
And your image will leave my mind
Oh, again and again

I guess that the remorse you feel
For what you've done
Is too strong for you to wield

Oh, again and again I try
Your image will leave my mind
Oh, again and again I try
Your sin won't end my life
Oh, again and again
4. Habit (12:46)
[Music: Darkwater, Lyrics: Wassholm]

Nothing rocks this perfect world
All is locked in place
All is tried and true today
We have found our ways

Stuck
We're stuck in static motion
Repeat
Repeat and fade away

Same old answers to every new question
Same old reasons for everything
Same dismissal for every new suggestion
Nothing ends here so nothing can begin

Nothing rocks this perfect world
All is locked in place
All is tried and true today
We have found our ways

Let me go down
I need to hit the ground
Break this habit, turn around
Find a new direction

We are where we've always been
No one's surprised by this
We take no chances
Oh, this is well rehearsed
All words have been said before
But I repeat them still
What I wouldn't give for changes now
For another game to play
This is just by force of habit now
There is nothing left to say

Let me go down
I need to hit the ground
Break this habit, turn around
Find a new direction

If I could take it back
If I could make amends
For all the mistakes I've made
Why would I hesitate

We've been walking the beaten path
Played the parts we think we're given
It's so much easier keeping it up
Than admitting surrender
We've blamed and we've grown away
Everything exchangeable
I have only myself to blame
If I don't change directions
Only mirrors
Stand in my way
From today

Let me go down
I need to hit the ground
Break this habit, turn around
Let me go down
I need to hit the ground
Break this habit, turn around
Find my way[Music: Holmberg / Båth, Lyrics: Båth]

"To those it may concern", a full page of words. I'm leaving you
Though the fire inside s till burns, this shell I've become is consuming me
As painful as it can be, I'm open for you to see my enemy
As though I've never been close to anyone I still feel it, I miss it

And I can see no sense at all
I've tried so hard to break my fall
And all around me people say
"He's turned his life into a play"

Quietly I'm there, one step closer to despair, they do not see
this struggle within me, I thought stronger I would be, God, I was wrong

And I can see no sense at all
I've tried so hard to break my fall
I never meant to fly this way
But in the end it's all a play...
5. The Play - I (2:34)
[Music: Holmberg / Båth, Lyrics: Båth]

"To those it may concern", a full page of words. I'm leaving you
Though the fire inside s till burns, this shell I've become is consuming me
As painful as it can be, I'm open for you to see my enemy
As though I've never been close to anyone I still feel it, I miss it

And I can see no sense at all
I've tried so hard to break my fall
And all around me people say
"He's turned his life into a play"

Quietly I'm there, one step closer to despair, they do not see
this struggle within me, I thought stronger I would be, God, I was wrong

And I can see no sense at all
I've tried so hard to break my fall
I never meant to fly this way
But in the end it's all a play...
6. The Play - II (8:39)
[Music: Holmberg / Båth, Lyrics: Båth]

Is this coming to an end?
I've seen the writings for years now
I've always tried to send this message
to all, but it seems like I've failed

Broken, torn and misled
By the thoughts in my head
Seems like all that I see
Takes a hold of me

I can't fight this desert in my heart
Left behind by the ones that I love
I would fly to the end
if they could only see
Just look at me

Thee are voices in my head
I do not know if they're real or not
I remember what they said
"Take all your fears
and turn them into hate"
They are trying to pull me down
tearing and ripping, confusing me
If only someone could help
I've prayed for so long
still they don't see, don't hear me

Facing ground just once more
Wondering what it's all for
Nothing I could foresee
It takes a hold of me

I can't fight this desert in my heart
Left behind by the ones that I love
I will fly to the end
if you'd only believe me
Well look and see

"These words now left with you,
were too hard for me to say alive
I never meant to go this way, but in the
end I was facing too much for me to bear.
Forgive me just this once, 'cause life has
done me wrong. I feel, I've been set aside
So quietly I walk..."

And darkness turns into light
and warmth now fills my soul

I have found a stillness in my heart
Left the past behind
with the ones that I love
I can fly to the end, can you finally see
Now look at me...
7. Shattered (9:38)
[Music: Båth / Sigfridsson, Lyrics: Båth]

All these eyes that I face
Black and numb, cold, disgraced
Reveals me and laughs at me
Into these eyes I stare
An endless deep, I can't bear it anymore

You break me down
I'm lost, I'm found
I can not see
Is it all about me?

Shattered
Reveal the truth to me
Shattered
I'm far too close to see
I question every part of this
I twist, I turn, forever bound
I'm shattered
Will I hit the ground

One step up two steps down
Has broken me to the sound
Of tattered dreams soiled with screams
I've lost the meaning of all
I try to rise but I fall again

You broke me down
I'm lost. I'm found
Too late, to see
It's all about me

Shattered
Reveal the truth to me
Shattered
I'm just too blind to see
I question every part of this
I twist, I turn, forever bound
I'm shattered
Once again I hit the ground

I question every thought inside me
Just to break down this
wall you once built
Seeing things never meant to be seen
I try, I fly, then I die

Shattered
Reveal the truth to me
Shattered
I'm far too close to see
I question every part of this
I twist, I turn, forever bound
I'm shattered
Trust in nothing reach for bliss
Shattered pieces on the ground
Reveals the truth to me
Lies projected in my mind
I'm far too close to see
I question every part of this
I twist, I turn, forever bound
I'm shattered
Will I hit the ground again
8. Tallest Tree (10:14)
[Music: Holmberg, Lyrics: Wassholm]

A winter's on its way
I feel it coming closer
Colder every day now
But I will let it come
I'll let it wash me over
'Til all my limbs go numb
Then I won't have to move
Then I'll have lost my way and
You will tell me: "My baby,
If you can't find your way
Then I will find it for you
Don't you worry"

Look at me
Did I think that you'd be there for me
After all I can see through this
I'm not blind
It's as if I had made up my mind
Not to go any closer than this

You're not the one for me
You're not the one I dream of
No, you're much too close now
I've always been this way
I only dare the lowest branches
Of the tallest tree
But I will change my ways
I will face my fears
I'll climb up to the top of
You are my tallest tree
And I will keep on climbing
Don't you worry

Look at me
Now I'm where I've been wanting to be
I have waited so long for this
I've been blind
I have been such a coward at times
Now I've finally opened my eyes

Good things come to those who take them
Nothing's left for those who are waiting

A winter's on its way
I feel it getting colder
Closer day by day now
And you'd be frozen stiff
If you were on your own
But this time I've got your back
If you can't find your way
Then I will find it for you
I'll be there for you baby
If you can't find your way
Then I'll find it for you
Don't you worry

Look at me
Did I think it was not up to me
Did I think could wait for this
I'm not blind
Though I've been such a coward at times
All it took was to open my eyes
9. In My Dreams (6:09)
[Music: Sigfridsson / Båth, Lyrics: Båth]

I can't believe this
progression meets the skeptic eye
Even a child can see it
how can they be so blind
Forward I'm reaching
trying to cope
Touched by discretion
is there no hope

close yet so far
Lead me and you'll see me turn
Rise all my stars
Leave me and you'll see me burn

In my dream there'd be nothing
that I could not do
In my dreams you would find me
just as good as you

Trespassing my mind
a thousand tears I hold inside
Have I no integrity
or should I just close my eyes
forever we've seen this
power abuse
I need your help here
cause what if we lose

Close yet so far
Leaving me breathless again
Rise all my stars
Come and let me fall asleep

In my dreams you would find me
talking like you do
In my dreams you would find me
just as good as you

How long will we believe
How long will we deceive
Will you ever confess
I'm calling the earth to witness

Close not so far
Follow and I'll show the way
Rise to the stars
Let us turn night into day

In my dreams you would find me
just as good as new
In my dreams there'd be nothing
that I could not do
In my dreams you would find me
touching like you do
In my dreams you would find me
just as good as you
