Wait for Me 05:08

Going Down 04:19
If this journey will go fine I’ll go down there where no light shines I’ll be grateful for my life feel great inside and I won’t need anything from you When I’ll take my leave from here maybe no one will realize just your eyes will turn and close I fear you were right you’re paying me back now through this blind alley Soon I will reach the end Going down I feel cold and eyes burning You lose sight of me too scared of my wounds hidden in silence I blame myself I feel cold Going down sweet poison here I am

Flying over cities Time’s flowing back Walk through empty streets You will see just ruins Under a dim light Black rain falling down No room for sorrow No grief allowed Enjoy the end of this world killed by your race A purple curtain is hiding guilt If men were wiser they’d dig their own graves No more false warnings No more quiet waters You want to be safe but you fight for dust Last night I dreamed my life was flowing back again Enjoy this barren landscape That’s what you sowed Time flows back again but your fate is lost now in your flesh
4.
Not Now 05:09
staring at your sin on a grey wall in a dull maze of barbed wire not now another time zone far from yourself look in the mirror your crowded mind you’re dumb and awake a cruel truth please turn me off or just let me down not now not now Everyday you, try to avoid not now sensing light as night fades away waiting for a trigger freezing doubts you stay always in the middle unsettled by lost dreams no not now I think it’s come to steal your breath don’t make a fool of yourself no not now Allow yourself feeling tired passive stand-by state numb and awake

Cold as the thrill of a happy death none but angels should bathe there your poor ashes lost at heavy sea craving burial in the water why can’t I sleep nor wake? he whispered the answer I’m afraid to know I’m dead ancient patterns working in your brain blind devices swirl in vain just unknown threats shrouded in your mind By now what else matters beyond this watery peace? during sleep we touch what is better left untold? during sleep we touch what is better left untold? Now have you had enough? Survive. Hang on. Again Black lightning crept in You can call it a technique of dying Silent creatures sat right on your way in bleak stillness won't let you go The sea froze around and the sky fell on him
7.
I feel like snowing I feel like snowing while pain goes by No one could heal that longing for you to fly Lost words in the wind your voice so far It seems my road will end here fumbling in the dark Looking through this mirror I see just grey faces Everytime I hear you I just get empty sounds That’s breaking my mind No one could heal this pain I’ll get through on my own Hoping next dawn will come First lights will crack Looking through this mirror I see just grey faces Everytime I hear you I just get empty sounds That’s breaking my mind No one could heal this pain I’ll get through on my own Hoping next dawn will come First lights will crack

Open Window 07:26
9.
Behind a wall of words have to hide to reveal hidden stories veil over a veil voices fade to silence sense lost in whisper its thread unmasking our longing Days are over in the diary I never wrote white light from the window chills the air ’round my table chasing sadness far away just scattered letters on a blank paper enough to show the secret as long as your eyes can see trust this random symphony speaking of an unknown beauty forgotten waves look always the same Days are over in the diary I never wrote white light from the window chills the air chasing sadness far away

Farewell 01:54

about

Not a Good Sign's sophomore album focuses on songwriting and melody, even if you will still find plenty of twist and turns and long instrumental songs.
