Track Name: The morning sun
I woke up today and threw my troubles away
Cuz I ain’t have time to let let them bring me down, again
I just don’t see why they should keep me in worry
Cuz the only one who keeps them coming back, is me
Today is a new day, a new chance to break free
I feel only great and all my troubles they hate me cuz
I don’t care that they wanted to say, cuz its my day and I will throw all my troubles away

Oh I sit in the morning sun, looking at the day that has just begun x2

I woke up today to meet the world full of hate
but who the heck has time to waste the only life on it
I have seen too many angry faces, too many frowns and tears
I’m not saying I’ve got all the answers, but I am done singing the blues
I will make somebody happy, create something new

Oh I sit in the morning sun, looking at the day that has just begun x2

I’m not saying I’ve got all the answers, but I am done singing the blues,
I will make somebody happy, create something new

Oh I sit in the morning sun, looking at the day that has just begun x2
Track Name: Thing on the shelf
The thing on the shelf

I am a thing on the shelf, made of porcelain
Dusty like everything else, like I am meant to be
deep falls by every edge, that might break me
Just me and nobody else, it will always be

Oh, I am a thing on th shelf, dusty and lonely, placed in the darkest of rooms, to keep the sun from me
Made to be pretty and light, now cheap of value, stand where I always must stand, and lose my right to be new
Once I was pretty and fun, I thing of beauty, but then I was dropped on the ground and stripped from duty
Carried by firm and cold hands, they placed me down here, made believe that I’m done, and lose my hope to be free

But I’m not a thing a shelf, made of porcelain
Dusty like everything else, no that won’t do it for me
Steep falls by every edge, but I can make it
Just me and everyone else, like it should really be

I’m not a thing on a shelf, not made of porcelain
Heart wings legs, I can dance, and sing the song of life,
Steep falls by every edge, they won’t break me
I’ll soar, show that I am alive, be what I want to be
Track Name: Keep on going (the rusty train)
Oh, just when things went bad and hardship held my hand
I realized where I went wrong and why did crashland
I hadn’t picked a way to go or how I would get there
And when I stopped to think it through, I’d forgotten of where
//keep on going
- But where?
-How will I get there?
- And when?
And so I started planning more, to see where I should go
But soon enough the planning showed that all the trips were slow
The roads were crooked, bridges burnt, the hills were overgrown
how the heck was I supposed to reach that great unknown
//keep on going
- But where?
-How will I get there?
- And when?
I went to town to see Ms Brown, and rest my weary head
I said “if this is all that life can give, then I’ll be dead”
She looked at me with weary eyes, and said to me “Rusty,
The roads are old and leads nowhere were you will be happy”
She told me that the road is for the one whose path is made
For the ones who doesn’t get to see the world in any way
If I really want to get somewhere, I’ll create the road myself
“go out there and climb the hills and try find yourself”
//keep on going
And so I went, no compass lent, to try and make my way
and everyone who saw me always thought I’d go astray
I roamed the fields, I climbed the hills, and soon I ran away
roads that I’d been walking they were cracking like a tray
Track Name: The desert boat
I am travelling the desert like an open sea, I’ve got my boat, my pack, my head, my friends, my water with me
And I don’t know how long we’re sailing or what things I will see, I mean except for sand and mountains and that really wierd tree

I’m travelling the desert like an open sea, I’ve got my boat, my pack, my head, my friends, my water with me
And I am not sure where we’re sailing and then where I will go, But I know that I can face whatever the desert will show.

//Tap tap tap

So I came upon a desert and I wanted to go, but all the other ones around me started yelling no, It was too hot, too cold, to dry too long to ever walk through, and a couple black eyes later, I knew it was true

So I started losing hope that I would manage to cross, and all the lands I’d never reach felt like heartbreaking loss, but then I came upon strange thing hidden in a small cave, it was a rusty strange contraption with a sail for the brave

//talk

// Step, hop step, step, hop etc ^^

I am travelling the desert like an open sea, I’ve got my boat, my pack, my head, my friends, my water with me
And I am not sure where I’m sailing or what things I will see, I mean except for stones and mountains and that really weird tree

I’m travelling the desert like an open sea, I’ve got my boat, my pack, my head, my friends, my water with me
And I am not sure where I’m sailing and then where I will go, But I know that I can face what this desert will show.
Track Name: DARE
I’ve been spending some time to try to come up with a good rhyme, make it sound okay so that the others look my way
But whenever I was done with a sentence or with two, there was nothing with the words that really quite sounded true

I don’t wanna sing about love, don’t wanna sing about the money, sing about work or about fame
I don’t really want to pretend that what I’m singing is important, although it’s been written without aim

So, I said “ah, what, the, heck, I’ll write something that’s fair,
Yeah, I'll, write, something, that’s true, and, show, the world I dare
//scatter//
See, there’s a lyric that really has a meaning, it doesn’t say anything that really means nothing
I can promise you this, but it doesn’t even matter,
cuz I’m only having fun and why the heck shouldn’t you?

I’m not gonna follow streams that sell the air, I am gonna fight them, as hard as I can bear

So, I said “ah, what, the, heck, I’ll write something that’s fair, Yeah, I'll, write, something that’s true, and show the world I dare
//scatter//
//strange intermission//
//scatter//
/// end ///
Track Name: Lost in the fog
Oh, I’m walking in the fog, I am blinded, my thoughts gone, yet words are spinning around, in my mind.
Oh, I’m digging through the fog, try to find some object, walls or something to cling to, I don’t want to fall again

It’s wet and lonely, scary, voices are telling me that this is the way of the free, what do they mean?
They speak of, monsters, Devils, one’s that’s in the fog and trying their all to find me…

I run and run and feel / the terror that’s around me
I run and run and hear / the voices guides me on
I run and run and fear / What is clawing at my feet

Oh, they speak to me again, guide me forward, onwards, say they can help me out, am I wrong to trust them now
Oh, they lead me step by step, I don’t feel right, something, is moving around me now, I can hear it’s breathing jaws

I run and run and feel / the terror that’s around me
I run and run and hear / the voices guides me on
I run and run and fear / What is clawing at my feet

I stumble, I fall, there’s something on the ground, sharp, heavy, a blade as black as night
They voices say that I must fight, I’m surrounded by whispers and beatings of hateful hearts, But swear I will not die!

I lift the sword and swing away, I slash harder, faster, and the monsters fall right down. And the fog grew thinner soon.
then I saw them in the mud, with their swords and scared eyes, they look like clones of me, with bleeding wounds and weeping eyes

I run and run and feel / the terror that’s inside me
I run and run and hear / the voices cry on high
I run and run and fear / What is clawing in my mind
