Track Name: Ond Cirkel
Every day is a war
Resisting the same old behaviors
Childhood and memories coming back around
Carving wounds in my heart

When happiness is a chore
The batteries running low
There no more alternation
To my pattern of thoughts

En ond cirkel
Ett rop på hjälp
Jag har aldrig kunnat dölja det så alla ser det
Jag har aldrig kunnat dölja det så alla hör det

Men bara jag
Kan rädda mig själv
Track Name: Heartfuck
I'm such a nice guy
So breaking my heart is totally fine
I thought we were friends
But when temptation strikes we're all assholes

This time all the words came out right
I finally dared to open my mouth
And what did it mean to you?
Nothing

Please
Just let me out of your world
I don't wanna be part no more

And please
Next time I give you my heart
Just give it back and tell me to fuck off

You stepped over me like dirt
Though his lips on your lips was obviously deserved
When I hide under the covers
You keep me from sleeping
Painting dirty pictures of you in my eyelids

Please
Just let me out of your world
I don't wanna be part no more

And please
Next time I give you my heart
Just give it back and tell me to fuck off
Just tell me to fuck off
Track Name: For Us Lonely Souls
It's to dream about two
While forgetting one

It's to hang out with the happy
Putting on your best smile

While still staying quiet
Carrying such a loud mind

It's to look in the mirror
Whispering dark lies to you

To replay the same damn tune
Though you know it's hurting you

It's songs for us
It's songs for us lonely souls
Track Name: Will I Be Alone For The Rest Of My Life?
Began building inside my bones
I made a little place of my own
Started out with a single room
Then it grew and grew
To thirteen rooms and a swimming pool

And heading outside
Made me go deeper inside
To just hang around
Putting up paintings on my walls

Thinking
Will I be alone for the rest of my life?
Thinking
Will I be alone for the rest of my life?
Thinking

And I've finally made a room for you
It's full of photographs in sepia tone
Showing travels around the globe
Showing messy beds and messy heads
That fit so perfectly together

Will I be alone for the rest of my life?
Thinking
Will I be alone for the rest of my life?
Thinking

Just thinking
Just thinking too much
I'm thinking too much
Track Name: Ghost Conference
All my past lovers
Gathered today
For a meeting in my head

They talked about all pros and cons
Talked about their new husbands and sons
And reminded me

It's a ghost conference
Nothing we say here is true
We just want you to believe it
Cause all we wanna do is hurt you

We just wanna hurt you

It's a ghost conference
Nothing we say here is true
We just want you to believe it
Cause all we wanna do is hurt you
Track Name: Black Bicycle
How am I supposed to give you
Something I can't give myself

How am I supposed to give me
Compassion for who I am

When my love turns black
For days and nights

Forwards
Backwards
Repeating the cycle

Forwards
Backwards
For all my years to come

In a shameful pool of dirt
Someone's talking to me
With the darkest words I've heard
Though it sounds somewhat like me

I have kept the worst words to myself
Not to bother everyone else

I can't stand myself
Will you please help me?
I can't stand myself
Will you please help me become someone else?
Track Name: Unelma
In your voice
I hear revolving doors
In your dreams
I forgot my baby at home while heading out on tour

It changes my confidence
Into something new
I am jumping off cliffs
And really enjoying it

My ex-girlfriend died
Shocked by an amplifier
And now I see her in everyone
Wherever I go

I think I want you
But I am lying to myself
Because I'm just missing
Something else
Track Name: Väntan
Jag har berättat för dig
Allt jag har inom mig
Nu finns det ingenting mer jag kan göra

Jag har berättat för dig
Allt jag har inom mig
Nu finns det ingenting mer jag kan göra

Och din väntan
Krossar mig långsamt

Jag har berättat alldeles för mycket för dig
Kanske borde jag bara välja nån annan att tänka på

Du har berättat för mig
Att jag inte räcker åt dig
Nu finns det ingenting mer jag kan göra

Så din väntan
Krossar mig långsamt
Track Name: Misfortune Cookie
I want to get inside your head
Well I'll be dead soon anyways

I tried to win your heart
But made it fall apart instead

Why can't we be like all the lucky ones
Track Name: Two Drunks In Germany
Two drunks in Germany
Wondering how it's supposed to be
Love is lovely
Close and far away

I just don't know what to say
Or how to be with you tonight

Tonight
I just don't know how to be with you tonight

Your number is in my phone
But you can't touch me now
Cause it's the first time we met
It's the first time we met

Tonight
Would it be too weird to stay with me tonight?
Would it be too weird?
Track Name: Higher Powers
There is higher powers involved
When I see your face it glows
All your energies soaring around
Your body, your mind

Remember me
When I go away
To faraway lands
To different dimensions

Like I remembered you
And all else disappeared

It's been such a long time
Since I could look someone like this in the eyes
Without the slightest trace of fear
I know all I need is here

No one can make me smile
No one can make me laugh
Like you do
