credits

released 01 January 2014

First and foremost we would like to thank our loving families, friends, girlfriends and wives for their never ceasing love and support in the making of this album. We are just four guys with ambitions in our hearts and an endless passion for music, but without a firm base this album would not have seen the light of day. So from the
bottom of our hearts - thank you for letting us be selfish at times. We miss you too.

Also thanks to René Bang for letting us use his great photo of the Northern Lights phenomenon in Denmark. The sky’s the limit – hope you will enjoy the Northern Lights in this one!

Track Name: Bit by Bit
Out of control
Dig my way out of this hole
No sense of pride, place to hide
Now it’s time to choose your side
All these pictures
running backwards in my mind

Utilize a poor excuse - You said it
You pick, you choose - You said it
Slow it down & count to 10 - You said it
This was done by lesser men

The benefit of doubt
(So throw these skeletons away)
The benefit of doubt
(I don’t need them anyway)
The benefit of doubt
(Just take, take, take, take them away)
Show me the benefit of doubt

Pounding in my chest
This is insignificant
Not meant to be, so set me free
I don’t want to flee
All these pictures
running backwards in my mind

Seems you’re running
out of breath - I said it
I feel no regret - I said it
restitute, resuscitate - I said it
Begin to dissipate

The benefit of doubt
(So throw these skeletons away)
The benefit of doubt
(I don’t need them anyway)
The benefit of doubt
(Just take, take, take, take them away)

Show me the benefit of doubt
You said I’d make it - better on my own
Track Name: Monuments
I‘ll say it straight and slain
I‘ve always been afraid
Let’s just chalk it up
as one more mistake
I wanted you to know
I always stole your glow
So you’ll never burn
you’re never burning out

Monuments, built just to be refused
So settle down and fade away
So beaten up, so beaten up and bruised
Over time we’ll fade away

Never could refrain
Live under my reign
Waging wars on innocence again
When you defray
And waste away
This I promised you
you‘ll love me in the end

Monuments built just to be refused
So settle down and fade away
So beaten up, so beaten up and bruised
Over time we’ll fade away

To live in the comfort of a stolen sun
To live in the shadow of what’s been done

Monuments, built just to be refused
So settle down and fade away
So beaten up, so beaten up and bruised
Over time we’ll fade away

I‘ll say it straight and slain
I‘ve always been afraid.
Track Name: The Beast is yet to come
Had enough - A bunch of useless moments
Shower me until I’m bones
Had enough - These antics last forever
I might take this lying down

So displaced and..
and I am not too proud to say
Tough skin seems better now
So complacent
help me find a way
Tough skin seems better now

Had enough - This path goes on forever
I won‘t stand this hide and seek
You go for seconds always
And I’m not trying to impeach
but would you stay at home
if your enemies
chase out to the streets

So displaced and..
and I am not too proud to say
Tough skin seems better now
So complacent
help me find a way
Tough skin seems better now

better now...
I lost my crown
I’m breaking down
left here to drown
today...

Tough skin seems better now...
Track Name: Northern Lights
Believe in something
I believe in few
Life‘s an anchor aweigh for me
We could spend our time here faceless
Or we can take something away from here

If we could, we should,
we would always feel this way
A Lift off to forever
We should always dream this way
I never thought I‘d be distraught
cut me down and replace me in some way
If we could, we should, we would always...

Believe in something
I believe in youth
These blinding lights.. keep me from coming ashore
facing fires, chasing liars
Let a breeze carry us up and away from here

If we could, we should,
we would always feel this way
A Lift off to forever
We should always dream this way
I never thought I‘d be distraught
cut me down and replace me in some way
If we could, we should, we would always...

I am gone with the wind
I am never gonna fear the world
Track Name: Black Eyes
Breaking hearts colliding
Ashes everywhere
Timid hearts in hiding
Lying fine down here
Hold me close and save me from these
token arrows shot

... straight into our hearts (Blackout)
Yes I‘d rather be like you (Blackout)
Yes I‘d rather be like you.. (Blackout)
Yes I‘d rather be..

...Cold like you.
Inject me with your apathy
‘Cause I can‘t change my mind
And whisper secret love affairs
Breaking hearts go blind
Hold me close and save me from these
token arrows shot

... straight into our hearts (Blackout)
Yes I‘d rather be like you (Blackout)
Yes I‘d rather be like you.. (Blackout)
yes I‘d rather be cold like you.. Cold like you

We gotta change the way we poison our lungs
From these polluted voices they will be sealing
our demise Or all these distant cries from our
bleeding hearts will persist
and forever burn!

Cold like you...
Track Name: Rite of passage
I refuse to be the one
A shattered world sometimes
I refuse to be the one who lets you
crawl inside my hive
So bright-the sun will swallow us again
In spite of the promise of rain

We‘re waking up in the middle of a dream
tonight (We’re in a ghost town)
Color up all my demons on the streets
at night (We’re going downtown)
Waking up in the middle of our teens
(We’re falling down down...) tonight

Nurtured and fed.
Even if we’re polished
we’re still dead
So contrived The truth is derived
Stories untold Depleted limbs steal us
from our roles (call off the truce)
The scenery’s reproduced

We‘re waking up in the middle of a dream
tonight (We’re in a ghost town)
Color up all my demons on the streets at
night (We’re going downtown)
Waking up in the middle of our teens
(We’re falling down down...) tonight

For you’re the unsaid
The pulled out pin of a hand grenade
A great escape, a promise we made
The colors fade To silver gray left on
display all the while we’re singing on
our way...down, down..

We‘re waking up in the middle of a dream
tonight (We’re in a ghost town)
Color up all my demons on the streets at
night (We’re going downtown)
Waking up in the middle of our teens
(We’re falling down down...) tonight
Waking up..
Track Name: Dead and gone
Almost dead and gone
I need you to pull me through
What‘s said and done
I need you to push me through

When all the sadness is all the rage
I make a stand to disengage
When all the sadness is all the rage
This place still feels like far too staged

Almost Dead and gone
We‘ll have a burial in June
A different son
Will be looking up at you

So bred and Gone
I Will always be true
A vagabond
I have come into

When all the sadness is all the rage
I make a stand to disengage
When all the sadness is all the rage
This place still feels like...

Almost dead and gone
I need you to pull me through
