Lift me up and show me what this is all about Loosen me up, I’m so strung out Take me one step closer to something I don’t know Lights are blinding my eyes, trying to let my good side show In this little fiction This little fiction This little fiction Staring back at people staring back at me Should something here hit familiar, or is there nothing left to see? Push your hair back darling, let me see your smile Put your hand in mine and stop this little fiction for a while This little fiction This little fiction This little fiction How far do we push this?

Breakaway 02:56
Blissful ignorance Push past the illusion Poor behaviour The 21st century moment Screaming opinion At every other opinion Running out of currency In the economy of attention Throwing darts at the problem But nothing's sticking Stick to the script Stick to the schedule Can’t square this circle So split the difference Pull it together Because they’re running out of plans Breakaway

Stockholm 05:53
Is this a surprise? Or did this catch us up on the other side? Backs to the wall, staring out across the city You told me you were tired of it all 10am, black coffee and we’re killing time Watching some kid in a death metal shirt that says no compromise That feels strong, and I what songs have been going through his head These past days The latest news is stoking fears and has us all guessing Can you see what is going on? Can you see the storm coming? This is all such a fucking blur 10pm, hotel bar and conversations running deep An awkward silence despite promises made Scratching the moment anyways With no trace of right to spin us back around to these past days

Lying here in the dark watching the stars shine 
Long into the night as I reconcile 
My dependence on a wise man before he was up and gone
 Now I must hold all the answers and hope that they’re not wrong Couldn’t this be right? Dreamt of this old tree behind my home that changes to fire in fall
 Woke thinking the whole world had changed and there was nothing there anymore 
Take me to your hideaway and we’ll take everything we know
 And apply it someday if I can ever let this feeling go Couldn’t this be right?
5.
Do you remember that time we escaped the hue and cry?
 When we were wheels up, but it was not goodbye Do you remember that time staring at our reflections thinking?
 Listening to cassettes in Helsinki and all the people around us linking But I want to go home 
I want to go home
 Please take me home Tell me what's the password to get me out of this place
 Away from these complications and back in your arms again 
Can you make this alright? I need my focus again
 I just need the green light to let me go home I want to go home
 I want to go home
 Please take me home

Eyes on Fire 04:38
Take me to that place in your heart
 That drives us wild and keeps us guessing 
Feeling like we’re the last ones standing
 At the miracle horizon All the messages are in transit
 But they never check them sometimes 
They’re caught up in the subliminal 
In the minimal, watching from the sidelines Tell me where and how you’ve been
 Show me everything you’ve seen
 This is where we’ll turn it around
 Walking the wire, eyes on fire We’re burning through our data plans 
To stretch the connection one more time
 Now I’m waiting for you to come around
 To show me the sign that will make up my mind Tell me where and how you’ve been
 Show me everything you’ve seen
 This is where we’ll turn it around
 Walking the wire, eyes on fire Tell me where and how you’ve been
 Show me everything you’ve seen
 This is where we’ll stand our ground
 Walking the wire, eyes on fire

Destroyer 03:37
Here it comes again To show me up To talk this up How do you want to spin this? Take this? Break this? Our history needs a reminder But still we fake it No alibi Now my heart is on the attack So talk me forward Don’t hold back Hello my destroyer Hello my destroyer Hello my destroyer You are my destroyer So show me again Does fortune favour the fool? Signal the question Level the connection Now leave me stumbling blind So walk away Check and contain Hello my destroyer Hello my destroyer Hello my destroyer You are my destroyer So show me again Check and contain

Hey can you take me here
 And you said I’m in need of fun 
And you said because you’re no fun
 But I still like you anyway Hey can you buy me a drink
 And you said tell me a story
 And you said because I need a distraction
 Yeah I need a distraction I think its time to write the picture
 Before its moral fades
 Just look at all these faceless people
 Just trying to hold on to something
 Dressed down and walking away
 Can you see it? A finger pass across a hand
 As we listen to the stereo
 Two characters written into
 This story with no end
 But something here’s about to change
 Can you feel it? Pick me up off the floor
 And you said take me somewhere new 
And you said this night is magic
 But I’ll forget about it tomorrow This is magic
