Track Name: Breakaway
Tried so hard to breakaway,
Another home a place to stay,
Somewhere no one will follow me,
A little town of history.

Please don’t be long,
Please don’t be long,
Please don’t be long.

It's getting harder with everyday,
Another down no other way,
Fighting hard got heavy load,
I hit the tracks I hit the road.

Please don’t be long,
Please don’t be long,
Please don’t be long.

Time to leave time to go,
People search nobody knows,
Of my departure so suddenly,
From little town of history.

Please don’t be long,
Please don’t be long...
Track Name: The Only Place I Can Look Is Down
Every time that you arrive,
I look away, away,
Every time that you arrive,
It’s hard to say, to say.

That now,
The only place that I can look is down,
That now,
The only place that I can look is down.

Every time you try to smile,
You hide your face, your face,
What was so beautiful,
Is now lost with no trace, no trace.

That now,
The only place that I can look is down,
That now,
The only place that I can look is down.

I try to forget most of the time,
Push all these thoughts to the back of my mind,
Can’t believe what you’ve done,
I cannot believe all that you’ve done.

That now,
The only place that I can look is down...
Track Name: I Can't Stand It Anymore
Everywhere I go,
These tears begin to flow,
When will they ever disappear?
Not for many years.

And I can’t stand it anymore.

Far away from reach,
I learn that my patience can’t be weak,
Ahead in better times I see,
But now there’s nothing left for me.

And I can’t stand it anymore...

The last page I read,
Surprises me,
Never thought that it would end,
This way.

And I can’t stand it anymore.
Track Name: Life In A Hole
I can’t see a day past tomorrow,
It’s not clear at all,
In these times these days of uncertainty,
I can’t see through it all.

I can’t see it,
I can’t see it,
I can’t see it,
I can’t see it at all,
Can’t see it at all.

I know it’s hard living this way,
Not knowing what else to do,
I don’t know of any solution,
I don’t know what to do.

I can’t see it,
I can’t see it,
I can’t see it,
I can’t see it at all,
Can’t see it at all, yeah!

Can’t see it at all,
Can’t see it at all.

I know its sad living this way,
Feeling so cynical,
I can never find a better way,
Living my life in a hole...
Track Name: Say Hello
I feel uncertain I feel unsure,
Of what it is that I do any more,
No longer care for today,
For it is sad that we never say;

Hello, say hello, say hello,
To everyone,
Say hello, say hello, say hello,
To everyone.

Can’t you feel better than this?
Within your empty loneliness,
The choice is yours it’s now or never,
So come on let’s all say together;

Hello, say hello, say hello,
To everyone,
Say hello, say hello, say hello,
To everyone.


Hello, say hello, say hello,
To everyone,
Say hello, say hello, say hello,
To everyone.

No more feelings no more thoughts,
Of what it was that you taught,
I know that in time I will pay,
For I know that I never say hello.
Track Name: So High
It’s always a great pleasure to be,
So high, so high,
No longer at the bottom or the middle,
So high, so high.

For days and days I wonder,
Through the sun the light and the thunder.

So high, so high,
So high, so high.

So high, so high,
So high, so high.

I can’t believe my luck that I got here,
So high, so high,
But now I need some help to get off here,
So high, so high.

For days and days I wonder,
Through the fire the heat and the hunger.

So high, so high,
So high, so high.

Help get me off I seem to be stuck,
So high, so high,
It’s difficult and I need to come down please,
So high, so high.

For days and days I wonder,
Through the cold the chill I am under,
For days and days I wonder,
Through the cold the chill I am under.

So high, so high,
So high, so high.
Track Name: Lies And Indictments/ Sun's Going Down
Lies And Indictments

What you got to offer?
Your brains or your bones?
Or those from another source?
That of your foes?
So answer completely,
The total truth,
No lies or indictments,
Nothing but filth.

No time for overkill,
Just what you deserve,
I can’t give up now,
For the boy or the girl,
What’s in a season?
What was my youth?
I’ve got to live up now,
Up to the truth.

One more town,
To settle down,
To turn your face to,
Oh, to make no sound,
So answer completely,
The total truth,
No lies or indictments,
Nothing but filth.

Sun's Going Down

Sun’s going down,
Too soon the dark has come,
I wish today would never end,
Cause tomorrow, tomorrow you’ll be gone.

Sun’s going down,
Morn is rising in the sky,
I wish today would never end,
Cause tomorrow, tomorrow you’ll be gone.

Sun’s going down,
My love for you it will last now,
I wish today would never end,
Cause tomorrow, tomorrow you’ll be gone.

I’ll be thinking of you,
I’ll be thinking of you,
Cause I left you.
Track Name: Will You Ever Come Back Again?
Times are getting harder than before,
These days I find I’m always getting bored,
I look forward to be with you,
But now I don’t know what to do.

Will you ever come back again?
Will you ever come back again?

I thought our love would last so many years,
But now I sit alone with many tears,
For I wonder what you do,
And if maybe sometime soon.

Will you ever come back again?
Will you ever come back again?...
Track Name: Back And Forth
I don’t know what to do or what to say,
But I just keep on losing my way,
I don’t know where I am or what to do,
But I keep feeling that everything I do goes,

Back and forth, back and forth,
Back and forth, back and forth,

I keep losing my way,
I still feel this heartache, yeah, yeah,

I don’t know why I always end up here,
When I try to find a place somewhere near,
I can see ahead the things that I should do,
But something in my way always seems to send me,

Back and forth, back and forth,

I keep losing my way,
I still feel this heartache, yeah, yeah,

I keep losing my way,
I still feel this heartache, yeah, yeah,

I don’t know what to do or what to say,
But I just keep on losing my way,
I don’t know where I am or what to do,
But I keep feeling that everything I do goes,

Back and forth, back and forth,
Back and forth...
Track Name: Travelling Our Way Home
I can’t believe this is now happening to me,
No light ahead just darkness I see.

Life is so slow travelling our way home,
Travelling our way home.

I thought I found a way but then I got lost,
Can’t seem to find a path or bridge I can cross.

Life is so slow travelling our way home,
Travelling our way home.

I don’t know where now to look or go,
This unfamiliar place that I just don’t know,
Too many drinks I’ve had inside of me,
I’m finding it hard to look or to see.

Life is so slow travelling our way home,
Travelling our way home,
Travelling our way home.
Track Name: Carousel
I can’t wait to see the morning sky,
Everything quiet and all dark inside,
Walking steadily down a flight of stairs,
Follow the sign that tells me I should be there.

Carousel, turns makes me dizzy,
Carousel, I’m feeling weak,
Carousel, just one more ditty,
Till I fall off into my sleep.

Tired people scattered everywhere,
Look all around to see what should be there,
Take me back to where we used to play,
Back to where we used to play the other day.

Carousel, turns makes me dizzy,
Carousel, I’m feeling weak,
Carousel, just one more ditty,
Till I fall off into my sleep.

Drop all my coins into the waterside,
Can’t remember what it was I had to find,
Tread along a path that isn’t clear,
At the end the morning will appear...
Track Name: She Said Bye Bye (b side)
She said bye bye,
He said bye bye,
She said bye bye,
We say bye bye too many times...

Can’t you see I have to go, that I have to leave,
But I love you so,
It’s times like these I’m in need, for something in me,
For a little more, when.

She said bye bye,
He said bye bye,
She said bye bye,
We say bye bye too many times...

Too many times for me, too many times for you,
And that’s so true,
You go your way I’ll go mine, it’s the way we always find,
Never in the same place at the same time, when.

She said bye bye,
He said bye bye,
She said bye bye,
We say bye bye too many times...

We say bye bye too many times.
Track Name: House In The Desert (b side)
In a place that’s warm,
There’s a house in the desert,
Loved by everyone,
But the house in the desert.

Has gone, has gone, has gone,
The house in the desert has.

There are evil crows,
Who pick on bits of flesh and bone,
So you best beware,
In case your house in the desert,

Has gone, has gone, has gone,
The house in the desert has gone,
Has gone has gone,
The house in the desert has.

Has gone, has gone, has gone,
The house in the desert has gone,
Has gone, has gone,
The house in the desert has.

Through this mirage,
I say hello, I say good day, I say guten tag,
I look everywhere,
But the house in the desert has gone.
