Fortunately for me Fortunately for me I got it wrong But not falling down Tales of a tragedy Tales of a tragedy Cannot dwell apon Insecurity Theres no chance to run away From yourself Everything has grown old With secrets left to tell To forfill curiosoty To acheive that harmony Invested in beliefs Meaningless but pure Theres no chance to run away From myself Just observe things from afar 'Cause we have greater wealth Fail to wonder Fail to understand why It only means Another chance has gone Pathetic idols Worshipped in their cages Its hard to know just where the deck belongs Fortunately for me Fortunately for me Nothing stays the same And nothings what it appears to be
What do anons do? When the past creeps up on you Just smile and walk away For all remaining days A sad state of affairs The wounds they will still tear Understand we might One day have to fight Again Spend more time listening Find a new direction Refuse what they are offering Its hard to watch the world Around us fall apart Her silent destruction Aids a weakened heart An endless love affair Suppressing those who care Morals lonely plight Is fading out of sight Again So spend more time listening Then refuse to fit in Question every little thing And things appear much clearer now But its hard to stay awake 'Cause all their words are joined to form more lies, For war, for money and promised cake.

If there is nothing Why pull her heart strings? Taken for granted Comfort we planted Forced out Forced in Believe to Believe in Avoid, another walk alone Snowflakes on fire Mismatched desire Perfect positions Regretful decisions Forced out Forced in Begin to Believe in Sparks fly, with words I can't forget ENOUGH IS ENOUGH For time it starts To take away The pieces left From yesterday On higher ground Or lost at sea A tragic loss of history To figure out That things can change When lives SEEM harder to arrange Then understand Where we went wrong Before the lies begin And everything's completely gone... Out for good reason Changes in seasons Still analyse her Still none the wiser No doubt We can win A fresh start On everything GODS CAN FALL And speak for us no more...
So she thought you were weaker Thank her unlucky stars Because when all this is over You know you'll have had your chance So the dreams are never subtle As long as you keep them in your head This is no place for perfect Just don't believe all that is said Can all this be over Because I've had enough I guess we could surrender But we're made of better stuff A perfect sunny morning The foghorns put to bed To fear these early warnings Occupies all the space in my head Those happy beginnings Innocence paved us a way When all this is over There will be nothing left to say


This EP is a collection of four songs written and rewritten between January 2010 and December 2011. There are various themes and influences that are never really consistent.
