Track Name: Madness Is My Home
You gotta cut me loose
It's time I break the news
Can't you see I'm not amused?
I'm about to blow a fuse

This time I got it right
I've been at it throughout the night
I must put it to the test
Gotta bust it out of my chest

Madness is my home
Cos I am a mathematician
Madness is my home
Because I know its definition
Madness is my home
When I turn on the ignition
Madness is my home
That's where I breakthrough with ambition

We're running out of time
I can't say I'm doin' fine
I think I'm losing my mind
All I got down is my rhyme

The numbers just don't add up
And I am turning rad, ha
How long do you think we got
Before this world breaks in half

Madness is my home
Cos I am a mathematician
Madness is my home
Because I know its definition
Madness is my home
When I turn on the ignition
Madness is my home
That's where I breakthrough with ambition
Track Name: Win Win Win
Words can’t go where I’ve just been
Bought me a book about a fallen friend
I learned of Satan’s origin
Hanging in hell about a half past ten

Demon tried to con me, sell me a sin
A potion of control over mortal men
As a matter of fact, I’ve got plenty of Zen
But I’ll take two sins, you got change for a ten?

Messed up, drawn out
Running back to my hole now
Messed up, drawn out
Running back to my hole

Messed up, drawn out
Running back to my hole now
Messed up, drawn out
Running back to my hole

Sit right back and watch the world pretend
That the meaning of life is to win, win, win
And heaven knows where Satan has been
So wash your hands before you eat with him

But that was then, way back when
The sword was so much mightier than the pen
I’m a fisher of men every now and then
No, Daniel didn’t die in the Lion’s den

Can you conceive of what he believed in?
Is there more to life than a long weekend?
A world devoid of all gentlemen
Is a land that man has wandered within

Messed up, drawn out
Running back to my hole now
Messed up, drawn out
Running back to my hole

Messed up, drawn out
Running back to my hole now
Messed up, drawn out
Running back to my hole

Sit right back and watch the world pretend
That the meaning of life is to win, win, win
And heaven knows where Satan has been
So wash your hands before you eat with him

Messed up, drawn out
Running back to my hole now
Messed up, drawn out
Running back to my hole

Messed up, drawn out
Running back to my hole now
Messed up, drawn out
Running back to my hole
Track Name: Don't Twist My Mind
Each time I turn around
Hoping you will be behind
The empty room keeps laughing at me

Break down, hit the ground
My mind has locked me out
And I just can't keep it real

Right on, gotta move on
Pick myself by the ropes
Shine my shoes and get some new clothes

Deadlock - bust it up
New start, gotta crank it up
There will be no more messing around

Tell me off
Let me down
Brush me off
Sell me out
But don't twist my mind

Set me up
Turn me in
Shut me up
Kick me out
But don't twist my mind

Step up, pick it up
Never mind we messed it up
Look at me I'm ready to dance

A time bomb or sweet romance
come closer and take a chance
No matter if it makes no sense

Come on, just once more
Buckle up, it is time to go
Rack 'em up this time it's for real

Head on, fear no more
Stand tall, the game is on
Sometimes you gotta crash to break free

Tell me off
Let me down
Brush me off
Sell me out
But don't twist my mind

Set me up
Turn me in
Shut me up
Kick me out
But don't twist my mind
Track Name: Circa 1962
It was a tricky situation
But what could you've done?
Those monolithic structures
Had a life of their own

You gravitated nowhere
The ground beneath was soft
You needed some adventure
Anything at all

Watch that umbrella
You're not Cinderella
No matter what the weather
The other side is better

You dreamt of destruction
Fire all around
Your blood was boiling hot
But you could make no sound

The concrete was concrete
Circa 1962
And you had to be discrete
What else could you do, do?

Watch that umbrella
You're not Cinderella
No matter what the weather
The other side is better

It was a tricky situation
But what could you've done?
Those monolithic structures
Never come undone

The concrete was concrete
Circa 1962
And you had to be discrete
What else could you do, do, do?

Watch that umbrella
You're not Cinderella
No matter what the weather
The other side is better

Watch that umbrella
You're not Cinderella
No matter what the weather
The other side is better
Track Name: You Never Know
You spend a life time finding sense
One precious piece at a time
You build your friendship fortress fence
With solid rocks one by one
Then you see it all collapse
Tumble down with the speed of light
And you wonder, is there more to life
Left with no more fight

You wake up early, the night's still young
A smell of must and rain
You fear your shadow, you choke on your tongue
Your trust thrown in vain
You try your best to play it fair
To let live and let it slide
You answer every call they make
And then they hang you dry

You never know
Even even if you're a leader
You never know
When the game is on
You never know
Who taps into your meter
You never know
When they throw you a bone

You plan your every move you make
Your entire life
No short cuts, no backdoors,
No cut and paste, no cut and dry
You give in to the race,
You try to cut to the chase
You think relationships is what it's all about
Till they knock you flat on your face

You never know
Even even if you're a leader
You never know
When the game is on
You never know
Who taps into your meter
You never know
When they throw you a bone

You never know
When you catch the fever
You never know
When you'll turn into a believer
You'll never know
If you're not a dreamer
You never know
Yeah, you're on your own
Track Name: Meet Me A Third Of The Way
I wish you would invite me
Make me feel at home
Sit me at the table
Just like one of your own

Bless me with your kindness
Trust me with your friends
Open up your heart
And I’ll follow to the end

I am at your mercy
Praying for some love
Naked at the alter
Handing you my soul

Look into my eyes
And spare me some pain
Can’t you see I’m drowning
Crying out for help

Why does it always have to be this way?
Me on my knees and you looking away
This empty stare is driving me insane
Why won’t you meet me a third of the way?

Mock me if you need to
Judge me if you must
It is the indifference
That I hate the most

I need to know you’re there
To shed a light on hope
To show me that you care
(Cause) I’m at the end of my ropes

I am begging your forgiveness
And praying for some love
On bended knee I whisper
Pledging you my heart

Just look into my eyes
And feel the pain inside
All I need’s a sign
And I’ll follow you blind

Why does it always have to be this way?
Me on my knees and you looking away
This empty stare is driving me insane
Why won’t you meet me half of the way

Why does it always have to be this way?
Me on my knees and you looking away
This empty stare is driving me insane
Why won’t you meet me half of the way
Track Name: Runaway Train
No matter if you have noting to say
Your silence is loud, my muscles are strained
It isn't a fight, nor is it a game
But merely a moment of self defence

The tension around is so hard to bear
Nerves cramping up in total despair
The energy's high, the air is so thick
Your heart is pounding, mine is spilled

This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away
This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away

I am at the wheel and this time it's real
And I like the speed, the rush, the feel
But I can't define if there's enough time
My troublesome mind is driving me mad

The hour has come and we can’t delay
To speak out the words long harboured away
Come out of the woods, and tie up our boots
Back to the roots, remember what’s good

This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away
This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away

No matter if you have noting to say
Your silence is loud, my muscles are strained
It isn't a fight, nor is it a game
But merely a moment of self defence

And now it is clear - we must gamble it all
I can't understand why it took us this long
Come out of the woods, and tie up our boots
Get back to the roots, remember what’s good

This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away
This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away
This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away
This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away
Track Name: Super Connected
Have you ever been
So super connected?
And yet somehow
Minutely imperfected

So close you’ve reached
And almost touched it
But then your reach was breached

You climb upon a mountainside
Heading for the peak
But then your path… it was denied
And now you’ll never speak

Of the beauty that you glimpsed
Briefly at the top
And the feeling that you sensed
Somehow would never stop

Have you ever been
So super connected?
And yet somehow
Minutely imperfected

So close you’ve reached
And almost touched it
But then your reach was breached

Have you ever been
So super connected?
And yet somehow
Minutely imperfected

So close you’ve reached
And almost touched it
But then your reach was breached

It’s like looking in the mirror
And seeing someone else
Trembling at the terror
That your mirror’s image felt

When it looked into your eyes
And saw the manic madness
And then it took you by surprise
As the madness turned to gladness


Climbing other mountaintops
Whose paths lead to the peak
And of the mountain that was denied
I’ll think but never speak

Have you ever been
So super connected?
And yet somehow
Minutely imperfected

So close you’ve reached
And almost touched it
But then your reach was breached

Have you ever been
So super connected?
And yet somehow
Minutely imperfected

So close you’ve reached
And almost touched it
But then your reach was breached
Track Name: Do You Wanna Trade
Bear in mind that this is just a warning
You can still turn it around
Reputation's a venire and moulding
It's integrity that really counts

It is tempting to unleash the madness
And grab the power by the reigns
Wake the wolf inside and bite with prowess
And destroy all that still remains

Are you sure you want to trade?
Don't you feel betrayed?
Shall we raise the stakes?
How long till you wake up?

Do you really want to trade?
Don't you feel betrayed?
Shall we raise the stakes?
How long till you wake up?

What you have at stake is simply priceless
Which is why they want it all so bad
Can't you feel the power of your kindness
And compassion trump all other hands

It is tempting to unleash the madness
And grab the power by the reigns
Wake the wolf inside and bite with prowess
And destroy all that still remains

Do you really want to trade?
Don't you feel betrayed?
Shall we raise the stakes?
How long till you wake up?

Don't you taste the bait?
Time is running late
Who controls your fate?
It's time to wake up?
Track Name: Hanging Ten
I took a journey to discover the truth
I found some answers and I found some proof
I live my life inside a dreamlike trance
I hear the music and I have to dance
I’m alive, I’m alive

I’ve studied money, studied history
I know where we’re headed is no mystery
The sun, the moon, the rippling wind
My spirit flows throughout the now and then
All aglow, all aglow

Go through the motions, there’s no other way
Ignore the decadence, forget the decay
I had a thought that taught me, taught me to transcend
Inside a wave I thought that would never end
Hanging ten, hanging ten

The gift of life of has certain conditions
Neglecting talent is the ultimate sin
Feels like we are following the Roman path
Can’t control the world without some wrath
Empire, Empire

I’ve found some answers in the Austrian school
And non-believers in the class that rules
So much frustration when you know what works
Instead of looting and the corporate perks
We could thrive, we could thrive

Go through the motions, there’s no other way
Ignore the decadence, forget the decay
I had a thought that taught me, taught me to transcend
Inside a wave I thought that would never end

Because it is a battle for your heart and mind
Awake your soul and who knows what you will find
The tree of liberty we must all revive
Every now and then if we’re to survive

Go through the motions, there’s no other way
Ignore the decadence, forget the decay
I had a thought that taught me, taught me to transcend
Inside a wave I thought that would never end

Because it is a battle for your heart and mind
Awake your soul and who knows what you will find
The tree of liberty we must all revive
Every now and then if we’re to survive
