Lost today / Found tomorrow What was lost today Will be found tomorrow Hm I’ve been gone for days But I count on tomorrow Hm And everything you thought it was supposed to Be now Let it settle further in the background To slow down And I’ll remember that’s all you need to know What was lost today Will be found tomorrow

Same Song 02:59
SAME SONG Sing the songs that we all know by heart For everyone to hear Oh my darling you’ve been traveling Closed eyes behind the steer Bring along all you’ve ever known The days of black and white Anchor all the answers that you’ve found Start to question them Soon You’ll lose So choose now Choose / If you keep parading on and on Carrying, singing the same old song The same song The same song parade The same song Oh we’re simply playing The big carnival games Take a swing at everything that get’s us higher We might loose sight of one other Darling all the people come and go Just like midnight and the break of dawn But secret signals seep in silence To let us see behind horizons You keep singing the same song (you get lost in it) You keep singing the same song (circling in the…) You keep singing the same song (you get lost in it) You keep singing the same song (circling in the…) Soon You’ll lose So choose now Choose / If you keep parading on and on Carrying, singing the same old song The same song

TIPTOE Tiptoed on water To see the bottom You said go dive in it Reading the ripples Talking in riddles You said go ride with it Tight up to the walls Constant control Words repeating lines Out of answers Tiptoed on water You know i gotta Explore the waves tonight Feeling the rythm My feet, vibrating You said go dance to it Take me where my mind goes When i follow fire flies Show me how the lights glow In your eyes and mine Then leave me there with eyes closed And i’ll catch you in my dreams again Hang on to let it go The flame of desire We Tiptoed on water To see the bottom Pushed eachother in Watching you closely Like a Wes Anderson movie Swimming in symmetrie Makes me wanna hear Your heart beating Makes me blind to see Though i follow Take me where my mind goes When i follow fire flies Show me how the lights glow In your eyes and mine Then leave me there with eyes closed And i’ll catch you in my dreams again Hang on to let it go The flame of desire (I don’t wanna to fight it, can’t hide it)

Numbers 02:57
NUMBERS How far am I running How many steps to take until this day is over I’m strechted out In and over Keep on counting again again again Six hours Was i sleeping Or lay awake in this dream It all feels the same Six hours Untill you’re leaving And it keeps coming back A distant dream drifting further Your wishes seemed somewhat chosen ‘Cause you’re lost in the numbers Ey How we’re feeling today What price to pay to Keep up with the numbers Ey Working from nine to five Trying to sleep at night Lost in the numbers You hack your habits to fit in the frame Wearing a filter to keep up your game strong Lost in the numbers Ey But it’s just numbers Ey More = more You don’t settle for less For every fellow follower That you track back on the web And everybody is watching They don’t miss a beat You better keep moving Before they’re starting to see through you Keeping all options open Selling your smile in an auction To get high on likes While running low in comfort And your left being lonely Watching yourself on the TV screen Spending all your time succeeding But no one to share your dream with Because it doesn’t mean anything Until it becomes something No it doesn’t mean anything Until it becomes Until is becomes ‘Cause you’re lost in the numbers Ey How we’re feeling today What price to pay to Keep up with the numbers Ey Working from nine to five Trying to sleep at night Lost in the numbers You hack your habits to fit in the frame Wearing a filter to keep up your game strong Lost in the numbers Ey But it’s just numbers Ey

Without U 04:41
Without U I’m keeping the lights on The door is still open You are the wind whirling in To come over here I’m keeping your name but The sound is worn out I’m wearing your clothes while you’re dressed in warm shadows All these moments without U All these moments without U I’m feeling you even more I’m holding on To your song That you’re trying to sing It’s painting the air Though i can’t hear The words you’re singing to me While you watch the sunrise I’m lit by full moon I’m dancing the dark nights with you Glowing my skin All these moments without U All these moments without U I’m feeling you even more

NOCTURNAL ANIMALS Everyone around me is sleeping They don’t seem to wake up in their own heads Eyes wide open Focus frozen The dusty days Will keep you away From a vale view We turned all Nocturnal Animals Come to life when we’re out of control We turned all Nocturnal Animals Live the dream in our subconciousness It’s more real than anything else I don’t believe your best of interest I can feel you don’t really want to know me well Any other screen makes you feel at ease You’d radther dissapear in it Be there Or be square Blink and don’t stare at your ceiling We turned all Nocturnal Animals Come to life when we’re out of control We turned all Nocturnal Animals Live the dream in our subconciousness It’s more real than anything else

First Steps 04:41
FIRST STEPS Take care of don’t minding at all You need is not wanting too much Just be the body breathing Every the past has it’s own path Grown into the present tense You tend to See only the endings First steps of letting go Don’t you forget what you were telling yourself First steps of letting go Don’t you forget what you were telling yourself All that’s lost it won’t be gone You still feel or hear it in a song Go, pass it on to your loved ones Press pause and stop the rewind Lean into moments of sigh ‘Cause time keeps ticking like a timebom When you’re rushing for the homerun First steps of letting go Don’t you forget what you were telling yourself First steps of letting go Don’t you forget what you were telling yourself Well it’s all in the game Putting a frame on all desires Until the lights go out Until the lights go out Keeping the flame of longing alive Until it’s burning up Until it burns you up Nothing but dust

Underwater 03:41
UNDERWATER Underwater Is where i’ll meet you first I can’t do the shallow shores Or small talk on the surface Throw yourself overboard Swim in my headlights Cause we’re all born With a song to play To play for every single one Now Underwater Is where i see you crystal clear Curling like a whirlwind wave And i can hear what you’re meaning to say Your secret station Through echolocation Throw yourself overboard Swim in my headlights Cause we’re all born With a song to play To play for every single one Now Don’t keep the cotton curtsains closed For the light that shines the most

Nightcap 05:05
NIGHTCAP I won’t ask where you’ll go I won’t even try Go ahead don’t look back It’s all right cause i’m your nightcap I’ll guide you to the deep I won’t ask where you stand Today Or wherever when I’m sure it can wait Call it off Count down I’ll drive you back and forth to Put your mind to rest and softly down Cancel all your conversations To settle in the endless stream of thoughts and hollow out
10.
Anywhere 04:44
ANYWHERE You’re caught up in the waiting room Still deciding what to do today Overthinking thoughts knocking your head Your subconcious called Tension in the cheek, the neck Every phone call, a panic attack Your absence’s never been so present By the preditors attempt But you could be Anywhere, anywhere Try to watch and witness Oh you could be Anywhere, anywhere If you’d only hear and listen You were holding your breath for days Without any notice With shoulders up higher Than your expectations The forgotten exhale, out Made you swallowed up But you could be Anywhere, anywhere Try to watch and witness Oh you could be Anywhere, anywhere If you’d only hear and listen Cause your body knows Your body knows better Than your mind will ever Your mind will ever tell you It’s there where i would like it most

about

The songs on this album are about how to stay centered in a society that’s constant rushing. About dealing with the daily distractions and endless opportunities this generation has to offer. We tend to search for meaning outside ourselves and lose the connection with our own essence of being. I started practicing meditation to stay connected with my inner core, where imagination and intuition are my guidance, wherever and whenever. “First Steps of Letting Go” is the result of that process and became my personal reminder of how to take a step back, watch and witness, hear and listen. Leaving the restless mind behind of whatever I should, and rather listen to what I would.
