Track Name: Haunted Castles
Haunted Castles
Ohh and I try to fight it
Cause I can’t I can’t come even closer
Oh and don’t try to deny this space between us is void inside both of us
Cause you know you know we are running out of time

And I thought you knew me
Though you knew thought I knew too much
Time is running straight through me
Electric volts are jolting both of us
And I can’t come even closer….

Cause you know you know you know

Haunted Castles in my Mind
Pull me out from the Inside
Oh and I can’t get out without you
Ohh Haunted Castles in my Mind
Pull me out from the Inside
Ohh and I can’t get out without you

Without you….. Without you…..

Pull me out…. Pull me out……
Track Name: Fix
Fix

I want to tell her that I like her
I want to show her all I can
she’s all I ever really wanted
how can I make her understand
I’m such a freak as much as I try not to be

wasting all your time waiting for a fix
it won’t last that long so you better get your kicks

you’re up there playing on the stage
giving the part of you you’re trying to hold on to
a shadow cast across your face
can’t hide the light you have inside
you seem lonely as much as you try not to be

wasting all your time waiting for a fix
it won’t last that long so you better get your kicks

there’s a coward in the corner
pretending he don’t give a damn
but no one’s buying what he’s selling
his whole persona is a sham
he’s such a fraud as much as he tries not to be

wasting all your time waiting for a fix
it won’t last that long so you better get your kicks
Track Name: Broken Vessels
Vessels

Liken me as a ship in the night
And come comfort me
Cause we are going under and
We can't see light

Liken we as ships in the night
And come comfort me
Cause we are going under and
We can't see light
Track Name: Viking
"Geographies said the geographer are the books which of all books are most concerned with matters of consequence"
-The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Viking

Your Viking soul you are on your own
But you journey on to find your home
Burial at sea is in your future
Any way to run from me

Your Viking heart is skin and nails
You fly your love with broken sails
But you were born on rough waters
And in the end you’ll lie there too
Even with your skin so tan
and blood so blue

Cold weather is coming your way
So you better tie it down
Lock it up
And throw the key away
Floating away, floating away, floating away

The burial ground….. is Floating away
Track Name: You Know Better
You Know Better

Steal your mother’s car, take it out to the edge of town
someone’s waiting there that makes you buzz at the touch of their skin
makes you feel like a fugitive, a couple of criminals on the run
she wants you to kiss her and maybe more if you play it right
she makes you nervous, says you can leave anytime tonight

you know better, you know better than to let her go
you know better, you know better than to let her go

retrace your steps back to the place where you would meet
no one’s waiting there, was it real or was it in your head
you can’t help but ricochet back and forth between the things you said
she wants you to forget her but you can’t get her out of your mind
she’s in your memory, says it’s time to leave her behind

you know better, you know better than to let her go
you know better, you know better than to let her go
