Track Name: Decide
Tear drops fall, sweat pours,
You have strength, you have soul,
An ability to be anything that you want to be.
You have determination, tranquillity and arrangement.
Questions and sentences with so much sentiment
In the most loving way. My mind delays.
My mind aches for a change.
Space cakes and reggae,
Your mind is made, made to always change
Your mind is made to always change,
Yes, your mind is made to always change.

Clear my mind and free my soul,
Awaken in a world you’ve made beautiful
Clean my mind and free my soul,
Awaken in a world you’ve made beautiful.

Okay hearts break, things will never be the same,
But the moment is now.
Dwelling only runs you down, and I’ve run into the ground.
Ready to rise again when the sun starts shining in the morning,
Her warmth melts the ice which was caught in my heart,
Broken and self-hating, not the world you should be painting,
But the paint got thick and dark,
I lost everything that I had.
I almost destroyed myself,
But watched my friends do that instead – and now some are dead.
I was so scared; I wasn’t prepared, waiting to be saved,
Washing away my days with a loveless haze, constantly afraid.
I’m not going back to that,
You have to watch out for your own heart,
Make sure you’re okay, make sure that you’ve got food on your plate
And keep in touch with your mates.

Clean my mind and free my soul,
Awaken in a world you’ve made beautiful.

People could talk about broken hearts forever more,
Oh how tragic it can be, pieces are all over the floor.
Trying to keep it together.
But you never know for sure whether you will,
Always getting ill,
What is wrong with you?
I’m here to talk it through with you. I want to know what you want to do.
What are your dreams and how can they come true?
I’m just 22, yes I’m only 22 and I do not have a clue
But I’m still here for you – for you.
My, my, my, the time smokes by,
I don’t want to cry in front of your eyes,
No I do not want to die in your eyes.
Hold me tight this is your life.
Decide how you want to spend your time
And who you want by your side.
Decide! Decide! Decide! Decide! Decide! Decide!

Clean my mind and free my soul,
Awaken in a world you’ve made beautiful.
Track Name: Please Trust Me Please
It’s a motherfucker, you should be here.
It’s a motherfucker how much I understand
But become blinded with fears,
Smash some more beers,
Try and not to be weird, mask the feeling.
I’m so tired and rinsed. Give me five more drinks,
I can’t remember a thing.
Now I’m not going to start dwelling, falling out of routine,
A total beer drinking, drug taking machine, what do you mean?
What do you need? Please trust me, please.
Please trust me please trust me please.

I’ll blaze away my life with dreams,
Discover what you need.
Build your art and believe that you will be somebody, I mean,
I mean that you already are,
You have the beauty of a star,
Burning brightly from afar,
Travelling to where you are.
The moment is now.
Please trust me please, please trust me please trust me please.

We are all brothers, destructors,
Creators, lovers, burners, learners, gurners.
Living together, connecting, thinking,
Breathing, seeking the reasons to believe in – Yes,
Believe in yourself, do not dwell.
You are heaven and you are hell
And you are everything in-between.
Listen and read.
Discover what you need
Because you already are somebody,
Please trust me please, please trust me please trust me please.

Now I’ve watched the fun times all fade,
I’ve seen some people get into some right fucking states.
Smashed myself with self-hate,
I’ve been all over the place.
Mentally and emotionally baked,
I lost some close mates,
Things will never be the same – you changed.
You changed my mind,
You changed my life, but you did not change,
Fell into that dark place,
A place where I spent so many of my days,
So straight away I relate.
These habits need to change.
Yours is not my fate.
Stop feeling out of place.
Hold your world and embrace.
The treasure that is your traits,
The twisted puzzle of these traits,
The beauty that is your traits,
Now the world awaits.
Track Name: I Want to Find the Light
I want to know what’s right,
I want to find the light,
In the darkness of the night,
In the darkness of these times,
Of these times.

The sign outside was not right,
Let there be light, let there be times,
When we know what is right.
Nothing was ever clear, nothing is truly how it appears.
No one is completely pure.
Oh let us all endure,
The obstacles we face,
Going day to day
And let’s be sure in every way
Of the things we appreciate.
Even when our hearts they ache.
Remember to appreciate
The things that you love, now concentrate
On them until you wake
From the darkness we all create.
Learn to love and not hate,
Try to appreciate – appreciate.

I want to know what’s right,
I want to find the light,
In the darkness of the night,
In the darkness of these times,
These fucking times.

There is only ever so much,
Everybody will get hurt.
It’s not always on purpose,
You learn who to trust.
Learn to love
And not just judge.
When is enough, enough
As far as getting over stuff?
Everyone can cure and curse,
Make things so much better or make them worse.
We all have a thirst,
We’re all selfish and absurd.
If we are not learning,
Then we must have already learnt.
Be that dead, buried or burned – Dead, buried or burned.
We play with fire and we get hurt,
Are we all here to learn?
We are all here to learn, so we’ll learn.

I want to know what’s right,
I want to find the light,
In the darkness of the night,
In the darkness of these times,
Of these times.
