you're always waiting for something never doing the right thing your head's in a noose tied by your thoughts and they're stacking the odds you've got access to all possible options but a mindset that won't stand a chance 'cause if you choose you loose you're a failure, a fraud worthless 'cause you're flawed clear your mind, it's taking a piss, all over your dreams, try to make sense of this. it's like Russian roulette, and these Bullets are thoughts, don't regret all regrets, until it no longer hurts. and it's Ego that's buying all of the crap, and you're lying, not facing the facts, you pile up shit around you, until you get smothered. but you just can't be bothered. you're aiming beyond the gap, but you're blinded and can't see the trap, that’s waiting out there for you, the bait is sugar and salt, suddenly it's nobody s fault. well I'd say it's time, to make sense of this, I load up on my dreams, I shoot though I may miss. and if these thoughts are bullets, they may leave me in holes, but out of old regrets, I cobbled brand new soles, and they will lead me there.

I've got a map that I can't read guess I could follow the footprints I can see a light but it's too bright to lead my feet don't fit the footprints stranded on a shore the air's too dense to breathe washed away with my footprints red giants and white dwarves they ask me to leave while I am left trying to figure out their dropping hints let your heart be a compass and your guts set the sails your dreams give you wind if you just stop chasing whales let the sun warm you up feel the breeze, take a breath heave to, drop the anchor your home's where you left misled by stars this ship took you very far you're not sinking just let it sink in bought a thing or two beyond my means thought they'd fill out my footprints i thought I was poor so i sold all my dreams but I am still chasing hints I left to find treasures but got lost at sea and hide inside footprints I kinda know how to steer but it's too dark to see time to leave here as I ran out of footprints
I don't know what for I don't know what for am I doing this I don't know what for anymore, anymore I don't know how long I don't know how long this will be going on I don't know how long, how long, how long just trying to stay strong you painted me a picture it's hanging on my bedroom wall how good it is to look at it when nothing's right at all I need something that's real tonight I need something that's mine I need to see you soon again I need some space and time I think I got lost I think I got lost along the way I think I got lost, I’ve gone astray I feel like I've lost I feel like I've lost my will to lose I feel like I've lost, I'm lost, so lost ready to be found tell me it'll be fine again show me something I can grab onto with hands help me find my way out of here can you lend me your shoulders your arms and your ears? thanks, I think I'm alright again and I'll be there when you crave for a friend I will offer you shoulders and ears and my hands to lead you away from here come on let's move on come on let's move on 'cause if we don't belong here why should we stay here at all?

finally you are where you always wished that you could be a holiday from being super strong take the time and let them help you so that you can see the place and time where you know we all belong it’ll feel good even though it’s been so long so don't be afraid to tell me what you've learned show me all the scars your aching heart has earned I'll promise you one thing although I may not understand if we're going down we'll do it hand in hand so don't be afraid to tell me what you've learned show me all the scars your aching heart has earned I'll promise you one thing although I may not understand if we're going down we'll do it hand in hand Don't you dare fucking cop out like that
and again someone has broke my heart another day of falling apart into a million pieces this story's old, and so's my face and I'm so sick of trying to win this endless race nothing to gain. Nothing to get from me I just wanna sleep sleep and dream it all away where are the songs that were stuck in my head? it's just filled filled up with stupid thoughts and crap can you help me up? I think I broke my spine one can so easily slip instead of stand the test of time. this life isn't fair and you're full of it I'm on my own off into the dark with my baggage full of shit what can I say? not again I think I broke some hearts they tried to trace trace back the lead to where the story starts and there's no cure for this disease called me just loads of problems and no solutions as far as I can see here it comes, another epic fail just wait for the sad applause to end and then off I trail I'm so lost no one can find me, not in time I play hide and seek with all my fears who are now friends of mine


This year, while we've continued to work on a brand new LP, we decided there were older numbers of our's that have never quite seen the light of day on a release. So, this month we put these songs together on a record which we're extremely proud of, produced across three days at Stress Studios, Graz. The EP will be available as a beautiful CD Digipak on tour, and for digital download online from the 18th March.
