41 01:55
41 So it begins and there is no way to turn back Spent quite some time in denial and tried to force it right on track Hoping but to no avail as I collected cast down parts Slowly but surely making a brand new start 41 Head first into the great unknown At 41 blackbird has flown I’m leaving it all behind So determined to feel alive at 41 In all honesty it felt like losing solid ground A branch off the family tree, everything I knew shut down Waking up at 4 a.m. To jump at the chance, I'm going to live again

Crew You 01:51
CREW YOU They were the ones who came and conquered first They saw the highs and the lows, the pathetic and the worse Travelled for miles, fearless at times There when no one cared None could be the same The closest to the flame Crew you, crew you We bow our heads for everything you do Crew you, crew you Solid, fair and true They must have heard it all a thousand times Knowing the old ones and witnessing a new one in its prime Drink, bounce, party hard, delirium within reach They will be the last around None could be the same Essential they became There’s a hole where once a bear’s head used to be And a very well-trained air drum machine

Last 02:27
LAST I know it all too well These are the days of letting go The weeks of hurt, the months of persevering, A year of learning I won’t be left alone There’s an army backing me My search for rhymes and reasons ended quickly Answers I’ve been looking for but I will never have I should rewrite my epitaph I would like to wake up feeling what I haven’t felt in years Learn from the past Going steadfast Maybe this will last And so I’m reaching out A bigger room for all who care I’ll leave the door unlocked and welcome all who come my way Begin from what I know I will stretch to understand It should bring comfort and the gentle need to grow a little day by day And fill that empty space Find a different warm embrace

PARTY AT OLM STREET 10 There’s a party at Olm Street 10 It’s been promised as the best since I can’t remember when And I’ve been counting every single day Now I’m ready for a party at Olm Street 10 All the furniture's secured so everyone can fit in You’d be surprised of the amount of bottles an empty fridge can store It’s what we have been waiting for A thousand conversations about nothing at all flying around And gradually focus drifts from talking to not falling down The last thing that I’m thinking as I’m crawling to the door Tomorrow I don’t think I will remember anymore And who did who and where did someone throw up on the floor Well, I guess that’s what the pictures are for At Olm Street 10, at Olm Street 10 Well, I sure wish they will do this again

AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER BLUES How to cope, how to anticipate Learn from observation, imitate Remember to make eye contact when you try to blend in (not isolate) People come and go while I’m around Sometimes unnoticed, unintentionally bound Nothing new under the sun, I keep ignoring everyone Immune to speechless frowns As I move on, learning everything the hard way So I never realized I could be strong and go the way I wanna go From waking up until I'm going to sleep I’m mostly trying to figure out the everyday upkeep Don’t take it personally if I don’t talk to you, I’m me And I’m in my world too deep Excuse me while I try to lighten up this fucking life Without leaving 'me' behind I am not one of your kind
6.
FOREVER GRATEFUL (FOR TOON) Wish I could give you everything I’d like to give If only I could see you every day Promise you I will be there for you unconditionally Forever grateful Nothing I could say or do would do justice to what I think of you The loudest one around Sheer joy makes your pure voice sound like music cut to perfection Tender arms reach for affection I like to keep you close, as close as I possibly can I know some days you won’t be near I fully realize that I will miss a part of you growing up I’ll have to find a way to let you go every time Just one more thing I’m sorry for the fragmented life you’ll be in There will be different places to call your own May the one where you're staying always be home Curly hair all over your pillow Sometimes I just watch you for a while I always know you’ll be in my heart wherever you go Someday spread your wings, you’ll grow So proud of you, I’m forever grateful For Tony
7.
THERE'S A PLACE (WHERE WE CAN GO TO) There’s a place where we can go to, full of blame and filled with doubt Where we push each other far away and get shut out No one smiles, no reason to at all and everyone’s lost on their way All you long for is a little out of reach and tomorrow will be like today There’s a place where kindness disappears as you walk in A game of harm, an empty house remains and a part of me I’ll leave behind Where you hope to win but nothing’s gained The outcome is so undefined There’s a place where no one stays, we’ll go our separate ways We will go our separate ways
8.
So Far 02:58
SO FAR There’s total absence of any sound without an outside world to fill the void No need proceeding, none to hang around Just an awkward tendency employed I never got to making plans today Decided to let time slip away So far this eerie silence suits the state I’m in So far there’s not a lot to talk about Unmistakingly forsaken So heartbreaking (Frustration – Stagnation – Leading to aggravation) The screen I’m indifferently staring at preventing me to reminisce Did you really think that I am over this Think again 'cause I aimed, I shot and missed Reflecting’s bound to leave me clueless Back to feeling completely useless And all days seem the same I’ll build a chest of wonders I’ve seen the rise and fall I need to wreck Break I need a place to gently rest Come to terms with my distress The need to find security (Relocation - Time for revaluation Motivation comes with security)
9.
MORALLY BLIND Taking what I want without concern for anyone’s time Desperation creeping through while I’m still doing fine What are you going to do when it all comes down For they might go out of line It is well to bear in mind that I'm morally blind Not even a glimpse of hesitation, everything goes According to plan, where to? Only a few will know What are you going to do when it all comes down For they might go out of line As I slowly creep inside, I am morally blind Sitting in an easy chair, selling easy lies to those who are following You’ll forget to bear in mind that I’m morally blind

CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE If he never would have told, do you think we would have gone After all it’s strange how things went and how we keep playing on We only opened up the door as opportunity dropped by Never planned anything but with a little help from a real nice guy Thibaut, he’s the singer of a band called The Octopussys, baby Could’ve easily casted us aside Never considered us so tall and we are still not big at all There are others more deserving, I think, yet they remain small How come they never qualified, why did they - discouraged - die Like Face The Fax, this scene was stronger when they were alive But let me tell you about Mark On his cab it once said ‘parc’ spelled backwards
11.
Kiss Away 04:03
KISS AWAY Once more, the same old story We both know where this comes from and where it will go, given time Hours will turn into days Stuck in the wrong place we never get out A feeling we can do without I can’t, it’s not that I don’t want to Exactly like the last time I just don’t seem to learn from my mistakes so I repeat Compulsively creating a void between you and the worst part of me It never seems to function, waste away It’s all so pointless The same mistake, more heartache There’s no reason for things to end up like this I know you’ve learned long ago to put up your fences Making sure that nothing I would say would harm you in any way But still it’s taking its toll and you probably will take this wherever you go And as we look back on the time we have killed We both know that It never seems to function, waste away It’s all so pointless The same mistake, more heartache There’s no reason for things to end up like this There’s a road ahead I know that it shouldn’t be like this and salvation is just a kiss away
12.
NEVER BE JUST ANYONE I got a lot of free time on my hands and so I started cleaning out Going through boxes filled with faded memories A thousand messages I wrote, they all reflect the insecurity that came from disrespect And everything that might have been Just to learn, for argument's sake, I questioned motives Asked for more reasons why moving in their direction would be safe I took advice that seemed to make sense Ignored the path I could not see Slowly wrote the manual I live by today I could have listened, be like them and go with the tide But somewhere deep inside it would feel wrong I’ve had the best of times, I have been thrown aside As sure as I could ever be I will never be just anyone Through darker days I’ve learned some things the hardest way But I’ve seen good hearts at times when I felt down Marked by the past I’ll keep on going against the grain As sure as I could ever be I will never be just anyone
13.
American 02:18
AMERICAN Proud American Can you please explain in simple words how you think someone like them will build a safer, more human, state for you to live in? I am only trying to understand where you come from, where you’re dying to go There must be something wrong with the way I think Can’t comprehend all that you seem to know True American Somehow you're convinced that you are worth more based on the color of your skin Education failed but it's not too late to unlearn

ACT OF CONSECRATION Did you read this book of yours yourself? And do you really understand the stories that it tells? Or only what your narrow mind approves? Some bits of old and new No one condemns as fast as you The blessed will rise Got a thousand reasons to exclude I wonder what the carpenter would say, if he knew I thought he spoke about compassion Equality of all mankind Or did I fail to understand The blessed will rise The greatest scam of all time based on murder, oppression and hypocrisy You would still burn everything you cannot fight Silence everyone who claims that none of this was right Fear of a self-conscious planet The answer to all problems, every task Simplicity for all The blessed no more rise
15.
HIGH STREET GLORIA Everyone knows how to smile at opportunities Everyone goes where the music is at So how come I feel like a newborn slowly trying to see Feeling uncertain 'bout emotional sensations that are telling me she’s got that look in her eyes What do I do when it’s mutual and how can I be sure that I’ll be falling down, never to get up High Street glory Falling down, never to get up High Street Gloria Caught in the words of the one who claims that everything is happening for a reason somehow Never believed but the truth will be setting me free I can feel I’ve changed, it’s hard to tell for better or worse Invisibly stained, I'm a tailor made Midas in reverse The discord returns

THIS YEAR HAS BEEN THE WORST YET Like so many do, I made my resolutions on the first day of 2015 I promised myself I would learn to control Clean up the mess I had been Cause I've been fighting this world for so long now A wayward companion to those I love most I had it up to here, just fed up with myself I needed answers to questions that rose I really tried but, goddamn, way too easy I relapsed as I fought to deny I couldn't do this all by myself, cried for help Broke down, finally, blew my mind And there is so much to remember All the things I'd like to forget And not a day goes by without pain and regret This year has been the worst yet It took me months to get up and recover, at least to get through one day without sleep I still knew the intentions I made long ago and all the promises that I would keep Out of the blue you told me that you would leave me and when I found out you had someone new The panic, the fear, all these feelings of guilt for all the days I forgot to love you Forty years of feeling deserted and now I break down Accelerate the end 'cause the feeling I will always lose comes around (Still not sure whether to leave this here What if I would just disappear)

Seven Times 03:55
SEVEN TIMES And slowly I’m trying to make plans again Braiding a lifeline At peace about leaving home and all I’ll leave behind Forcing it from time to time Seven times I’ll fall, eight I’m standing up I won’t let go If I can’t find a way I’ll make one of my own I won’t let go I’ve grown to rely on more than I needed Now it’s balanced more equally today I’ve lost quite a few but know that nothing’s here to stay A small step and I’m on my way 41 One step at a time 41 A crack to let the light come pouring in
