Track Name: Tales of an Arsonist
This is just another story of an Arsonist who lost his love in his great flames.

Your hands on my eyes, my hands on your skin; on our lips all these lies where I might have been. My flames in your eyes, on our lips all these lies. You could not know that I was about to set us on fire.

There you are and I cannot stop to stare, with ashes in your hair. Looking down at this mess we have, you never looked so pretty. You never did, my dear.
Track Name: Reckless
All I know today is that I am tired of falling, tired of failing. All I know today is that I am tired of this, I am tired of myself.

Rip me open, take my heart and tear my fucking life apart, just like they did when I was young. Because today you will find, there is nothing left but dust inside. Like Icarus I am longing for the sun. You see the failure in my eyes, the taste of my lips, bittersweet lies. All I know now is regret. My heart was aching and I would swear that you did not even care. Tell me, how could you forget me?

My best friends say that I have changed, my heart turned cold, my eyes turned grey, pointing out all my mistakes. My worst enemies say I have changed, my soul turned weak, my words in vain, pointing out that I have failed. Look into my eyes and tell me, what do you see? Do you see the man that I wanted to be? Can you see the boy that you have broken? My heart is broken.

My heart is nothing but a mess. And you know that you have cared so less. Every time, I notice that I am reckless, because every time you stab me in my back.

Reckless and relentless, that is my heart, my love, my life. Reckless and relentless, that is what I have become.
Track Name: I used to have a Friend
I used to have a friend once upon a time, but I got to sick of all of her crimes. I know I was not better, but god knows, that I have tried. Now I have changed and you do not realize that I have grown older, I have grown stronger and I have opened up my mind. Well you have become weaker; you have become blinder, because you have never seen the light. All those problems, made up in your mind. All your lies, written in his skies. You told me you were sick of life, and you have always tried to find anything worth living for. No we have opened up your cards, and we see you have no hearts, girl you should have known that this is no score. You told me you were sick of life, but you never tried to find anything worth living for. Too many lies have led me out of sight.

I gave you my hand, but you decided to fall.
And I offered you my help, but you denied it, after all.
Track Name: Crimes
I am sick and tired of all this wasting, I am sick and tired of all this waiting; wait- ing for a savior to come by. Because we are the ones who end up hating, we are the ones hesitating; watching how our world is passing by. So do not try to tell me what to say, because I am well aware of us today. Just listen to the sound of our crimes.

Holding back the words that we always kept, trying to forget everything that we have done, fooling ourselves, pretending we are blind and watching out for no one; pretend- ing we are blind and suffering for no one.

I know that everything is falling down upon our heads.
Track Name: Cheers Darling
They call me lovedrunk, because my actions speak louder than my words could and my body says what my mouth should. They call me lovedrunk, because I go too far but stay so close. So pass me the cup because I cannot cope with the road I chose. They call me lovedrunk, because I am blind in my frenzy, and I hate it. But it is this negation of morality that leads me. So why won’t you lead me?

Love in my veins, everything is in vain. There is nothing to lose, nothing to gain. I managed to forget what I stand for; I never thought I would be the one to fall. This is no attempt to talk me out of the fact that I have lost control.

Cheers darling, it was my mistake. Cheers darling, let these glasses break.
