Track Name: Big Bad Wolf
Your fault
my fault.
You're wrong
well done,
again.

I'm weak
too numb
and dumb
said the big bad wolf.

Who's home
who's gone?
Alone
again.

He would
hold on
be strong
said the big bad wolf.

Big bad Wolf.

When trust is lost
and all gone bust
know who it was
Big bad wolf.

When trust is lost
and all gone bust
know who it was
Big bad wolf.

Big mouth
all greed.
No need
to fear.

Born wrong
no fun
nor strong.
Said the big bad wolf.

Big bad wolf.

Big bad wolf.

You change
your mind.
My right
to leave.

Big bad wolf.
Track Name: Garden of Sorrow
In a garden of Sorrow
There's no one
quite like you
the lonely smile in my heart
a spark of you
we share the seeds of love.

Thinking of you is easy
I do it every day
Missing you
the heartache
will never go away


In a garden of sorrow
you spin as I sing.
And we don't care
who's listening.
Perfection there's no need to speak
Perfection there's no need to speak.


Thinking of you is easy
I do it every day
Missing you
the heartache
will never go away
Track Name: Sick
Let's get dressed
I'll paint my face
make sure the mask
is set in place.

Time speeds up
before the light
a day to kill
before the night.

You're my favourite disease
I wanna get sick on you.

I'll inject you in my veins
I wanna get (sick sick sick on you)

You're my favourite disease
I wanna get sick on you.

I'll inject you in my veins
I wanna get (sick sick sick on you)

When I dive into your eyes
I'm sweetly paralysed

Time speeds up
before the light
a day to kill
before the night

You're my favourite disease
I wanna get sick on you.

I'll inject you in my veins
I wanna get (sick sick sick on you)

You're my favourite disease
I wanna get sick on you.

I'll inject you in my veins
I wanna get (sick sick sick on you)
Track Name: Eden Storm
Do you ever see the colours
of the day?
Ever noticed how they clashed?
Do you ever feel the journey's
so much better?
Destination lost.

The Eden Storm
will blow away
all the
shades of pain

Eden Storm
blow away
all the
shades of pain

New, precious
frame of mind
you're now protected
always by my side

My Eden

The Eden Storm
will blow away
all the
shades of pain

Eden Storm
blow away
all the
shades of pain
Track Name: Home in a Bag
The weather ever-changing
the wind carries my soul away
the well I am embracing
every step I take.
My only home is in a bag,
I carry it from place to place
what I find inside -
is all I need.

My home is in a bag.
Spirits of the skies
this is where I belong
I follow the spiral path

I'm all set to go
ready to escape
where red water flows
everybody glows

Up the hill I go
here I am to stay

I follow the spiral path

I'm all set to go
ready to escape
where red water flows
everybody glows

Up the hill I go
here I am to stay.

I follow the spiral path
I follow the spiral path
I follow the spiral path
I follow the spiral path

I'm all set to go
ready to escape
where red water flows
everybody glows

Up the hill I go
here I am to stay
Track Name: Woods of Hope
When I breathe the dark inside
I know, all will be alright.

Lost again
in woods of hope
here I find
all that I am.

Lost again
in woods of hope
here I find
all that I am.

All that I am.

He will
spin the wheel again.
Once more.

There's no end.

Lost again
in woods of hope
here I find
all that I am.

Lost again
in woods of hope
here I find
all that I am.

Forever Midnight
by my side.

Forever Midnight
by my side.

Forever Midnight
by my side.

Forever Midnight
by my side.
Track Name: Bouquet of Memories
All my precious places
are filled
with unknown faces.

I feel so lost

Trying to cross the ocean.
'til everything is blurred.

No matter where you turn
all bridges have been burnt
and there's no return
Bouquet of Memories

No matter where you turn
all bridges have been burnt
and there's no return
Bouquet of Memories

Too much
to take in today.

No more
perfection.

Trying to cross the ocean
'til everything is blurred.

No matter where you turn
all bridges have been burnt
and there's no return
Bouquet of Memories


No matter where you turn
all bridges have been burnt
and there's no return
Bouquet of Memories

No matter where you turn
all bridges have been burnt
and there's no return
Bouquet of Memories


No matter where you turn
all bridges have been burnt
and there's no return
Bouquet of Memories
Track Name: Ed Gein's Leather
Do you remember Ed?
You won't believe
the bodies in his shed
were all he had.
He'd go out every night
to find the dead.
And turn them into art
and eat your heart

Oh no
nothing beats the glow.
And it won't get any better
the shade is human leather.
The animal's another.

He dances in the light
of the full moon.
The suit of skin is tight.
It suits him right.
Yes he was very skilled
the way he killed.
And he'd do anything
to be a girl.

Oh no
nothing beats the glow.
And it won't get any better
the shade is human leather.
The animal's another.

Oh no
nothing beats the glow.
And it won't get any better
the shade is human leather.
The animal's another.
Track Name: Sterntaler
They say the good things
come to those who wait.

When life's empty
every breath's a tear away

I walked through the woods of hope
chasing dreams
but catching only fools.

So then I called upon
the single horned one
the sky as a guide, open yourself to me

Then up from the skies
falling down into my arms
(the sky as a guide, open yourself to me)

Then up from the skies
falling down into my arms
(the sky as a guide, open yourself to me)

See the clouds drift apart
watch the golden rain
covering the forest floor

See the clouds drift apart
watch the golden rain
covering the forest floor
covering the forest floor

Then up from the skies
falling down into my arms
(the sky as a guide, open yourself to me)
Track Name: Compet
For someone who cares
you made all the wrong choices.
Two wrongs, won't make a right
Good bye.

I'll be under a tree.
My companions with me.
I'll be under a tree.
