Track Name: Small white lights
Intro: Bm A

Bm A
I am drowning 'cause I couldn't let things be the way they were
Bm A
'cause when you have a hungry heart every piece is good to take
G A Bm Bm
I have water into my ears and above my head
G A Bm Bm
but when the waves soothe my mind there's no promises left to break
G A
and when winter comes I will turn into ice
G A
I will look like small white lights
G A Bm A
A million shining freckles swimming through the night

D
Just because my heart goes boom boom
Bm G
Don't beat it like a fucking drum, oh please
A
You got me begging on my knees for you
D
Just because my heart goes boom boom
Bm G
Don't beat it like a fucking drum, oh please
A
Don't you lie to me no more

Isn't it true dear, out of sight - out of mind?
there's gonna be good, gonna be hard times
one day your absence will drive me blind
when you fade into a sweet memory in my mind
peacefully return to your everyday life
I will look like small white lights
and the sea will be home to me

Just because my heart goes boom boom
Don't beat it like a fucking drum, oh please
You got me begging on my knees for you
Just because my heart goes boom boom
Don't beat it like a fucking drum, oh please
Don't you lie to me no more

I know you want me to ooooooh ooooh ooooh
And when winter comes I will turn into ice
I will look like small white lights
a million shining freckles swimming through the night
Track Name: Kit kat t-shirt
Em C G D

Walking down the quiet street
I had my kit kat t-shirt on
the one I was so proud about
I remember it was summer
the air was heavy and tasted sweet
my eyelashes were sweating

But tonight,
where are you to tell me what to do
One of us was strong and it was you
But tonight
let's be innocent
that feeling I will never feel again

There was no fences and no walls
in between houses we could play all night
climb up the highest trees
I felt safe, I knew nothing
Tell me nothing has changed
But it did, alright it did

But tonight,
where are you to tell me what to do
One of us was strong and it was you
But tonight
let's be innocent
that feeling I will never feel again

You washed my hair, I brushed your teeth
We were brand new, no one to fear
Well those nights were the best of my life
Track Name: Everything must break
Am C G-D
We've had our warnings but were too blinded to see
Am C G-D
we've been preaching a truth no one is ready to believe
Am C G-Em
I should have known better because everything has to be broken
Am C G-Em Am...
that's what I've been told, everything has to be broken sometime

We still make jokes and throw words for funs sake
but really I've never pulled up a smile that was that fake
I should write a letter 'cause every word cannot be spoken
that's what I've been told, everything has to be broken once

We are still happy, maybe that's what nice people do
but really I wonder if you feel the same way too
I should write a song because it's always easier to pretend
that's what I've been told, everyone has to be broken once
Track Name: Death of us
E E B A
When times get tough, I'll ride my bike to you
When they get tougher, we get tougher too
But I don't like how we pretend to be cool at heart
I am not brave, but I felt this spark

A B E E
And I just wanna scream what's on top of my mind all the time
These pills we take just to maintain won't ever calm us down

Sounds of clocks ticking, air condition humming
The way we waste our lives is the way we are becoming
human machines, buying shit to define us
Like cogs though still afraid to talk or act out of line, but

I just wanna scream what's on top of my mind all the time
These pills we take just to maintain won't ever calm us down

We took our wheels, rolled into the night
have you ever felt before what it feels like not to fight
with yourself, no compromises made
just fuck everything because it's all a charade

and I just wanna scream what's on top of my mind all the time
These pills we take just to maintain won't ever calm us down

The pulse grows faster and my head gets blurry
The smallest tear feels heavy when I look back and say sorry
but if we never lived free, what would there be left of us
and if you never kissed me it would be the death of us

and I just wanna scream what's on top of my mind all the time
These pills we take just to maintain won't ever calm us down
No they won't ever calm us down
Track Name: Ice age
Am F G G
C G F F
Life is short when you die at 24
and now those racist fuckheads try to blame immigration
for some homophobes knife in your liver
sometimes I wake up crying, shivering
because you bled to death that night in the hospital

Am F F G
Can you hear from the other side of eternity my heart beat?
Am F
If you could just feel what I'm feeling tonight
G G
then I'd be feeling alright 'cause you'd be feeling alive
F
but there's no turning back
G
No, you'll never be back

C G F F
It was you and me and Katrin almost 10 years ago
we worked to keep the youth clubs from shutting down
in a torn apart society where everyone's afraid of each other
there's 50 people on this tram but everyone's sitting alone

Am F F G
Can you hear from the other side of eternity my heart beat?
Am F
If you could just feel what I'm feeling tonight
G G
then I'd be feeling alright 'cause you'd be feeling alive
F
but there's no turning back
G
No, you'll never be back
F G End on Am.
And now you're alone again
Track Name: Come as you aren't
D D G A

D D
For every thought you need a permission
G A
for every move an approbation
D D
don't speak your mind in front of strangers
G A
don't show your love but to your lovers

D D
And every song is the same song
G A D
too many attempts to prove my point
D
every morning I feel so strong
G A Bm
then comes the night and I just don't

G A G
Bm G A A

D D
And every person is the same person
G A
trying to owe you and proudly dictate
D D
but every time you're left alone
G A
you're still waiting for someone to help

D D
And every song is the same song
G A D
too many attempts to prove my point
D
every morning I feel so strong
G A Bm
then comes the night and I just don't

G A G
Bm G A A

D D
They were talking about social skills
G A
to blend in you have to curb yourself
D D
become this nice person that you hate
G A
when did your freedom become your weight?

D D
Every song is the same song
G A D
Noone is listening but we're just keeping on
D
Every day is the same day
G A Bm
'til you showed up and begged me to wait

G A G
Bm G A A

D D
And every song is the same song
G A D
too many attempts to prove my point
D
every morning I feel so strong
G A Bm
then comes the night and I just don't

G A G
Bm G A A D
Track Name: Alex
F#m Bm E F#m
In those last few desperate hours before midnight I'm heading out
In those last few desperate hours before night I feel like I
'lose my sense of belonging, heading for the graveyard
And moonlight shines to find me all alone out here in the dark

A Bm E F#m
You know I lost control just a moment ago
but I never want it back
When I feel my heart beat from my head to my feet
only the night air could cut me some slack

F#m Bm E F#m
In those last few desperate hours before midnight
I need to walk it off
If you got some weed and stories to share
we could go to our secret spot
Bright lights make a big city but pine trees make me feel safe
Distance is just a shred in space-time
but a trip the heart is unable to make

A Bm E F#m
You know I lost control just a moment ago
but I never want it back
When I feel my heart beat from my head to my feet
only the night air could cut me some slack

F#m Bm E F#m
In those last few desperate hours before morning I wake up
There were two men heading for the graveyard
only one man coming back
Track Name: Sharing is caring
E E A B
He's the sweetest
He's the kindest I know
We understand each other
no need to watch the sunset
don't need to text all day
We share a tofu sandwich
we're chasing water frogs
he's my dog
he's my fucking dog
he is my dog
he's my dog

He's the sweetest
he's the kindest I know
sometimes we kiss each other
but noone else knows
We don't wanna go to the movies
or any other silly things
No need to pretend all day
just share a big peace of meat
He's my dog
he's my fucking dog
he is my dog
he's my dog
Track Name: The struggle
Am Am C C G G Am G
I was trapped inside my own bubble
I couldn't take a step outside
When my dearest friend became worst nightmare
your voice became my worst struggle

Back then I could scratch my skin so hard
it would bleed 'til I couldn't breathe
I just wanted out of my own too used body

C G
But one of those days I will get up
F
I will hear the longing murmur
G
I'll walk straight to your door
F
I'll say I forgive you
Am G
It's alright, I am better

It was just so hard to tell
I was not the one made of steel
I knew we got too far
when my soul was too hard to carry

It's been such a long fucked up road
I should've learned to get stronger
Normality seemed so far away
from what life had to offer

CHORUS

Am Am G G F F Am Am
But I am me and you are you all alone
In time the minutes you'll learn to count
and the seconds will seem longer
Maybe that day you will understand

Am Am G G F F Am G
a human being is not to play with
Maybe lying deep down in the dirt
you will agree there is no need to flee

CHORUS
Track Name: Blue bruises blues
E B E E
A B E E x 2-3

One day we will all be dead
but today the cheap wine we stole still spins through my head
as we run from the security guard
with the sunshine in our eyes and skate burns on our thighs
we're so happy just to get out of here alive!

My pockets are empty and I have one cigarette left
but there's only one thing that I'm trying to get
that little bit noone can buy or sell
that one little monster still waiting to be fed

Here's to this town and all it's shitty basements
well here's to the many bands that we thought would have a chance
high on the smell of sweat and the lack of oxygen

Who needs to sleep when they can sing along?
First we shred some tears then make it all wrong
I will try and write some lines, find the right spot
I will try to make you smile because life is short

From this hill we can see the whole town
with the dark woods behind and the bright lights downtown
and the summer night air in your hair smells just fine

If we make out now we'll wake up tomorrow
naked in this field, just wondering what to feel
and how to get a bite to eat
Track Name: Tornadhoe
C C F G

I've been keeping up with that mess
long enough to know how this is going to end
but not long enough to even begin to accept the state we're in
I almost broke my bones trying to wave at you
but did you even notice me? Don't think you did

It's like a nice useless feeling
could disappear without noone noticing
it's like a little kid smiling
could be no other way if I was deciding
in the fakeness of your words I heard the wind blow
soon enough will come a tornado

Are you just acting tough?
is this act for real?
Are you playing pretend and do you know how I feel?
How much more can I bend before you break?
Can't you see me smiling,
do you think that it's fake?

It's like a nice useless feeling
could disappear without noone noticing
it's like a little kid smiling
could be no other way if I was deciding
in the fakeness of your words I heard the wind blow
soon enough will come a tornado

and destroy everything that's
fake, boring, wrong, bad, fucked, shitty, crap, dead, weak, whatever..
Please just come and take me!
Track Name: In charge
C Fmaj7 G Fmaj7

I need you now
I can't remember
Oh help me out
I need your shoulder

What was it like
to make it happen
To live your life
when you were younger

Please take me back
when I was with you
those sunday nights
I'll always find you

Tell me again
I will speak louder
I listen to you
as you get older

You teach me how
I should play my life
You told me now
you will be in charge

I never thought
I'd miss you so much
but when I'm lost
I look for your touch

So many questions
but still no answer
I know you'll be there
we will remember
