Track Name: boon and bane
It starts with one thought. I can hear the water running. Rain cast is boon and bane. I'm not calling out for shame. Reignite from the loss to reach beyond. Floating rivers pushing forward to landscapes without bond.

No more drowning - leave it all behind.
No more sinking - down to face the ground.
No more drowning.

It starts with one fight between water, stone and air. Now I’m getting up again to conquer doubts and fears. We will bear the weight of a thousand hearts if we keep climbing before the flood rottens out our minds.

TODAY I'M AT WAR WITH DOUBT.
STILL SEARCHING FOR SOME TREASURE.
BELIEVE (ME), I'M THE ONE WHO STRIKES - BACK WITHOUT MEASURE.

Today I'm pushin’ it all away. All the weight that wakes me up at night. All the sorrow that darkens me.
Track Name: mark every lifeline
We’re bearing trouble in mind – every thought can throw us back into an abyss. Retrospection can be back-braking – sometimes a single notion causes the fall.

LET’S GO OUT AND WRITE SOME NEW MEMORIES TO REPLACE THE BURDEN. LET’S BREATHE IN LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

We can’t undo the hard times – they’re part of our handwriting. But what we can do is - write our future.

Our time’s not endless. So let’s mark every lifeline by giving all we’ve got for the hearts around us.
Track Name: this mess
Release the weight that strikes you down.
Without self-awareness all help is useless.
(The) loss is not big enough for them to change,
so release the weight that strikes you down.
Self-help' s the only cure - this mess is vicious.

Chorus:
Stop raging - save your strength - conquer with patience.


There's an abyss at your door.
Don't lose solid ground without no reason.
Focus on what’s really happening.
Breathe in before you act.

There’s no remedy for everything.
There’s no cure against memories.
