Track Name: The Boy In The Corner
Tell me the truth
Or tell me a lie
about The boy in the corner
With a tear in his eye

Wherever he goes
With a smile on his face
You'd think that tear
Would look out of place

He's got a spring in his step
A glisten in his eye
But that glisten
Is the start of a cry

Don't worry about him
Don't be his friend
Cause for the boy in the corner
This is the end
Track Name: The Silence
We once had so much laughter
We once had so much joy
We once had dreams and lifetime plans
at least that I recall

A dream of growing older
A dream of beating time
Eternity was our friend
Life a rapid climb

And sometimes there were mountains
Too steep for us to pass
We always found a cutoff
Always found a secret path

I was much too happy
To realize that time
Was running out and fate had plans
That were not really mine

We took that final cutoff
They said were safe and sound
And soon the light of darkness
Gathered all around

The cutoff was much longer
Much stronger was the cold
We were running against all odds
Luck was running out

The choice that we had taken
Was fatal and we knew
In a hopeless situation
We must hope to make it through

We were so close to freedom
Just one step towards the west
We couldn´t find the way to go
We were snowblind and then

The silence
Then the silence
Then the silence
grew upon me

The last time that I saw you
Is burned inside my heart
You reached your hand I couldn´t grab
Two worlds fell apart

I heard a sound of falling
Falling in the snow
I heard my name in whispers
Your voice was fading slow

And the silence
And the silence
And the silence
grew upon me
The Silence
Track Name: Life Moves On
Life has changed so much for me
All that was, will not be
Nothing seems to stay the same
Except maybe my name

And just when I think
I've got it all right
It slides away
Into the night
Just when I think I know, it goes
Life moves on

Life has not been nice to me
Nothing has come easy
It could have been worse, I guess
Although it's a mess

But I will go on
Two forward, one back
I'll make my way
Go day by day
I may not have liked it much, so far
But life moves on
Track Name: Breathe
Body in strife
What is the price
Just to survive
Becomes value of life

Burden inside
Killers won´t hide
Air steps aside
Like a lethal tide

Global treasures and fortune
Money is no relieve
You don´t need golden mountains
If you cannot breathe

The hollow space
Narrows with pace
The human face
Withstands with grace

Sleep without rest
Dreams are unblessed
Times are too stressed
It´s an eternal quest

Sunny days, thriving meadows
Fade away in a breeze
There´s no unclouded pleasure
If you cannot breathe

Body in strife
What is the price
Just to survive
Becomes value of life
Track Name: How Fast I Die
You dont understand how fast I die
The days of my youth have flown right by
still day after day is passing by
my hopes and my dreams had been too high

I realise that the time we have spent
has led us to this bitter end
don´t turn around when I say my goodbye
I understand how fast I die

You dont understand how fast I die
The days of my youth have flown right by
still day after day is passing by
my hopes and my dreams had been too high

I realise that the time we have spent
has led us to this bitter end
don´t turn around when I say my goodbye
now you understand how fast I die
Track Name: I Am Free
I am unbroken
I am unspoken
I am unheard
I am unseen
I am free

I am unshaken
I am forsaken
I am abandoned
I am strong
I am free

I am prolific
I am terrific
I am industrious
I am redundant
I am free

I am reality
I´m hospitality
I am betrayal
I´m honesty
I am free

I am refusal
I´m disapproval
I´m inconsistency
I am acceptance
I am free

I am correcting
I am denying
I am hiding
I am still going
I am free
