Track Name: Mayday
If this plane is my life
The captain takes the wheel,
And he stares as this plane ride,
Starts to lose control
Is it me?
In the seat
Cannot play this role
Do I see
Help for me
But I’m screaming out ……

Save me from myself

When the ship meets with ice
No matter what the build
We all start to nose dive
Going hellish deep
Is it me?
Drowned at sea
Cannot swim at all
Do I meet self-defeat?
But I’m screaming out …..
Track Name: Survival Revival
When will we learn, that we’re the solution,
We get burnt,
Still we need to hold on to the will to live,
And if we’re honest,
Sink or swim,
Do we take more than we truly ever give?

Survive, Survive, Survival
Revive, Revive, Revival

When will we learn?
To ignore confusion,
This world turns,
But we know there’s something deep inside that burns,
Drawn conclusions,
From he, who learns,
Still the view we hold, corrupting all our words
Track Name: Let The Games Begin
Dearly beloved, queen of pain, I feel the weight of this ball and chain
Bitter soul mate, bitter sweet, bitter sorrow that I don’t ….. need

She cuts away, I die away again
The colours bleed; black and grey and red
I’m swept away, the storm, well here it comes again
Marry me and let the games begin

Loaded question, loaded gun, you wont crawl away, and I wont …… run
She comes for me, she knows I’m bleeding
From where I stand, there is no reason
Track Name: Inmate Insane
Another day moves on,
And I keep thinking that this should be over, it’s not over
It’s not even close to ending
Stranded in myself,
I’m thinking, too much thinking
Padded cell is calling
Strange how it works out that way

On this holiday,
Gonna bury the pain
Got me surrounded
Enjoy the stay

Well the view here ain't great
And the guests are the same
Left me dumbfounded
Inmate insane

Another night has gone,
And I keep getting further from what I was, who I am
Paranoia in me
Living dead now, I’m sedated and I hate it
I think my mind has gone
Strange how it works out that way
