ANOTHER DAY

Holand/Endresen

I`m forever through with pretending

I am what I am

I see that all hope is fading

Like water in sand

Cold winds sweep around me

I feel the dark surrounds me

Help me find my way

To rule this madness yet another day

You say it`s all come undone

The venom`s inside

You say the end has begun

No place left to hide

 

SLEEP ANOTHER MINUTE

Holand/Endresen

Underneath a corporate sky

There`s no trust to find

In anyone, or anything at all

No questions asked, no reasons why

But we keep on smiling

Confident, until we hit the wall

There will always be a time

When we open up our minds

We`ll know just what to do

But until then

I can`t see, I can`t breathe

I can`t sleep another minute

I can`t live in a dream

I can`see, I can`t breathe

I can`t sleep another minute

I can`t live inside this dream

With only me in it

And as we walk our corporate ways

Afraid to speak our minds

Afraid to ever step out of place

Never to see what`s meant to be

Forever blind within our own

Selfindulgant haze

 

LOCOMOTIVE MAN

Holand

My mind, is over matter

My eyes have seen

the sun in the night

Railroads end, inhabitants scatter

As I lay my vengeance upon

My mind is not at ease

I'm losing control

Like a freighttrain rollin' way too fast

Towards the wall, thru' it all

Here I am, locomotive man

Here I am, locomotive man

I dread the weakness I feel

Respine a shivering back

Moving faster, moving

stronger than before

Railroads end, never never no more

My mind will be at ease

I'm gaining control

Like a freighttrain rollin' way too fast

Towards the wall, ram thru' it all

 

CIRCLE OF SIN

Holand/Endresen

Im sittin' here in silence

As I watch you slowly die

I feel the fading anger

And your death is mine inside

I`ve got these strange emotions

Crawling underneath my skin

I`m restless and I`m achin`

It`s a battle I can`t win

All alone within

This circle of sin

It`s my everything

My circle of sin

I`ve felt the breeze of springtime

And the soothing summerrain

But as you lay before me

My only comfort is your pain

Still these strange emotions

Are crawlin` underneath my skin

I`m restless I`m still achin`

It`s a battle I can`t win

But emotions cannot hide

All these things I feel inside

 

CRY’N BEG

Holand/Øksne

I see you strollin' down the sidewalk

In the corner of my eye

And I feel some kind of tension

As I watch you walkin' by

You always seem as in control

Of all the things I say and do

And when you smile to say hello

I know what I'm about to do

I'm gonna cry, I'm gonna beg

I'll be crawling all around your legs

You're the sweetness of my dreams

You're my queen and now it seems

You got me running round in circles

And then you hang me out to dry

But It's the perfect combination

`cause first I'm dizzy then I'm high

So when I see you on the sidewalk

Still in the corner of my eye

I know I'll always love the tension

'cause I'm about to get my high

I can tell by the way you smile

That you know what I`m lookin` for

Seducer supreme,

headin` for the extreme

And I`m always comin` back for more

 

PART OF MY SOUL

Holand/Øksne/Walle/Drevvatne

Like rain will always soothe my soul

Like sun will always guide me home

Like seasons change

from warm to cold

Like winter covers pain in snow

I know you`re always gonna be

The one who comforts me

Like flowers will unfold

This story will be told

You`re a part of my soul

Like moon will always hold the light

You`ll shine thru` the darkest nights

Like a calm inside a storm

Like a fire to keep me warm

You`re always there

To help me find my way

Like flowers will unfold

This story has to be told

You`re a part of my soul

 

INSANITY FAIR

Holand – Barrel-organ intro by Egil Erlandsen

It's a desperate situation,

Im hangin` by a thread

I can't find the combinations

The blood rush to my head

Was hoping for a joyride

But predictions always fail

In a chariot of madness

Only madness will prevail

I wanna know if this ride`s gonna end

And I need to know, where to go

On who to depend

Hangin` upside down,

in a merry-go-round

Hangin` upside down,

in a merry-go-round

I see clowns with twisted faces

There`s no laughter to be heard

The smiles have left no traces

Now it all seems so absurd

The loveboat inmates shiver

In the tunnel they all drown

Cause everything is backwards

In this merry-upside-down

Now the hall of mirror`s waiting

And I know I should beware

Cause what mirrors once distorted

Will be waiting to appear

The wheel of fortune`s spinning

There`s no prices to be won

Cause everything`s for real

 

THE ONLY TRUTH I KNOW

Øksne/Holand

Lying close beside you

That's the only truth I know

And there's one thing I will tell you

I'll never let you go

When you're smiling or you're cryin`

Just come to me I'll show

That lying close beside you

That's the only truth I know

I've never made a promise

I didn't intend too keep

But promises can fade away

When darkness gets too deep

But no matter what I do

No matter where I go

Lying close beside you

Is the only truth I know

In a summer love there'll

always be some rain

But I will shelter you and

take away the pain

'cause above the clouds

there's always sun

And me, I'm still the lucky one

The road ahead is ours to find

Be my heart, my soul, my mind

In good times and in bad times

You`re always there for me

With a smile and a laughter

To remind me how it should be

And when my days are over

I`m gonna ask the lord above

To put me right beside you

That`s the only truth know

 

EYES WIDE OPEN

Holand

I see your eyes

They mesmerize me

Like before

You twist my mind

You move my heart

And my soul

So here I go again

Keep building castles in the sand

My eyes will never tell

The things I know so well

The tide will wash it all away

I`ve got my eyes wide open

Yet I do not see the danger

The same situation,

I`ve been here before

Still got my eyes wide open

To myself I`m still a stranger

The same infatuation

as I enter this door

Your magic smile

Chills down my spine

Like before

I`m in too deep

So bittersweet

Like before

 

WHEN THE SMILES WEAR OFF

Holand/Endresen – Duet voice: Fred Endresen

You see them sailin` thru`

The bright, blue sky

Always searching for

a brand new high

Making promises of what will come

Just as long as you will sing their song

But I know, it won`t be long

Before their smiles wear off

And they`re gone

You see them hide behind

Their piles of praise

The truth is always

hidden in the shades

They want to tell you

what is right from wrong

But they don`t really know

Whats going on

But I know, it won`t be long

Before their smiles wear off

And they`re gone

Their heads are spinning

Going round and round

Their mouths will move

but there will be no sound

Nothing matters noone really cares

As long as someone

will provide the wares

But I know, it won`t be long

Before their smiles wear off

And they`re gone

 

PRAYIN’

Holand

I've been down at the crossroads

For a drink or two

I had a word with the lord

And the other one too

Now I know

It's all because of you

But I will find my own way

I will break on thru'

I've seen millions of faces

Some lost ones too

I've been millions of places

But I've never been all the way to you

Now that's a hole in my shoe

But I wil find my own way

I will break on thru'

I Will turn all the stones

And mend the hartaches too

I will pray for wonders

I will pray for love

I will pray for hope and I will

Pray for all the things I know

As above so below

But I will find my own way

I will break on thru'

I will turn every stone

And mend the heartaches too

I will keep on prayin' till

I find my way back home to you
