01. The Quiet Offspring

Music by Michael S. Krumins
Lyrics by Stein Roger Sordal
A choice were made and it came clear to me
The quiet offspring fucked it up again
So I was brought up on the sunny side
Got into fake from day one
But I knew better then the rest of them

Don't count the hours, don't count the days
I don't look back in any ways
Never cared for who or what or when or why
Home is where I rest my head
Never cared for who or what or when or why
I carry on when all is said

You said I should have learned by now
A father's son so disobedient
Such a burden I have been for thy
Nothing good enough
I packed my bags and now you wonder why

Don't count the hours, don't count the days
I don't look back in any ways
Never cared for who or what or when or why
Home is where I rest my head
Never cared for who or what or when or why
I carry on when all is said

Never cared for who or what or when or why
Never cared for who or what or when or why
Never cared for who or what or when or why


02. Between The Gentle Small & The Standing Tall

Music & lyrics by Stein Roger Sordal
I'm on a roll today; I'm on a positive
On my way for make believe
I'm on a higher ground down by the open doors
I've seen a black hole spark on my way through the dark

Come on down, bring it on, come on down

Dance to my symphony, the marble of all sound
The screaming in you ear, yeah I welcome you
Explore the solitude; it's all flesh and bone
You'll sweat it out cold as stone

Come on down, bring it on, come on down
The mother of dreams as real as anything

So here is my demand, a possibility
Some will fall and some will get it all
There is a thinner line between the rise and fall
Between the gentle small and the standing tall

Bring it on, come on down, bring it on
The mother of dreams as real as anything

Let me keep my distance for a while
I'm not ready to go back

Bring it on, come on down; bring it on, come on down Bring it on


03. Just When You Think It's Safe

Music & lyrics by Tchort
Death appears in me
No fate is what I see
Sanity reviews
Reaching out her cold, cold hand

I drowned love
I drowned hope
Changing the way it goes
Changing how it all flows
Changing how it all flows

Just when you think it is safe
To go back out again
I am still around you
Just when you think it is safe
To go back out again
Life is an illusion

The window facing the street
The very last thing to see
The one with the little girl (hanging out)
My very last moments of light

I saw her face
She was so pale
She had eyes so blue
And the colour of her skin too
The colour of her skin too

Just when you think it is safe
To go back out again
I am still around you
Just when you think it is safe
To go back out again
Life is an illusion


04. A Place For Me

Music by Michael S. Krumins & Kenneth Silden
Lyrics by Stein Roger Sordal
I'm covered up with time
The only one you'll find
I gaze beyond the words
We'll find it all somehow
Just leave the rest to me

You're on to something new
There's a false and there's a true
It lingers in your mind
Can you find a place for me?
And ignore what you've denied
For so long Denied for so long

Twisting and turning
I'm going for the same direction turning
Misguided by imagination turning
Underneath surface I rest
Twisting and turning
I'm going for the same direction turning
Misguided by imagination turning
Underneath surface I rest


05. The Everlasting Moment

Music & lyrics by Stein Roger Sordal
A face will tell you stories
Some hands will always seem to care
The fading light that blur you mind
You stumble on with your given time

She'll kiss the sorrow goodbye
The everlasting moment is divine

You have a thousand reasons
But need only one to justify a cause
No one will ever teach you
The hunger you had slightly out of touch

She'll kiss the sorrow goodbye
The everlasting moment is divine

She'll kiss the sorrow goodbye
The everlasting moment is divine

Hey sister, take them with you
Hey brother, hurt will make you strong
Your tears will turn to laughter
A last look back and then your on

She'll kiss the sorrow goodbye
The everlasting moment is divine

She'll kiss the sorrow goodbye
The everlasting moment is divine


06. Purple Door, Pitch Black

Music & lyrics by Stein Roger Sordal
I am your needle;
I am your option out of here, it's that simple
Oh, I can guide you,
Through all you fears you'll come out strong, come join me

So save me, I'm falling
And I don't have the strength to go on
I need this, I breathe this
So empty, afraid and alone

Well, we go way back
But now's the time to let it go, I dare you
Across the border something's waiting
Some kind of change, the kind silence

So save me, I'm falling
And I don't have the strength to go on
I need this, I breathe this
So empty, afraid and alone


07. Childsplay Part I

Music & lyrics by Tchort
Sun setting on a sweet summers day
The sound of children playing a wicked game
Leaving stains on the soul
Twilight crawled across the sky
Dark Shadows - rushed me

At the end of the day,
Will they talk of me?
Did anyone see me play?
Did anyone want me to stay?

Alone again, this is the end my friend
Torn between you and me, this is the end
Sun setting on a sweet summers day
The sound of children playing a wicked game
Leaving stains, on the soul

Twilight crawled across the sky
Did anyone say goodbye?
Did anyone see you?
The playground is empty now
The children play no more
The game is over

A ball is lying still
Painted circle, a child's thrill
The game is over
Lying on my back watching the stars
Another sunrise, another sunset passes by
Lying down to take a rest…forever


08. Dead But Dreaming

Music & lyrics by Tchort
If there were no darkness
There would be no light
If there were no rain
There would be tears in my eyes
I am life I am death
Before you see the light
You must take your last breath
I don't feel what I am supposed to feel
I don't dream what I am supposed to dream
I don't say what I am supposed to say
I don't see what I am supposed to see

Dead but dreaming
You make me strong and I make you weak
The perfect mismatch and disharmony
Tired are the feet
That crossed the floor
Hell's doing great but I am serving no more

If there were no heaven
There would be no hell
If I couldn't feel
I would probably hurt myself
I open my eyes but I cannot see
The people I looked up to are not for real

Lonely is the soul empty are the eyes
Vague is the flame that used to burn in your eyes
Knocking before passing through the doors
The love that used to live here
Lives no more
Dead but dreaming, memories remain
The flesh summons pain and I do the same
Silent Anguish and silent scream
She screams for more and that is not a dream


09. Pile Of Doubt

Music & lyrics by Stein Roger Sordal
I've been badly beaten
But somehow I've stumbled on
And this wonderland you planed for me
Never felt like home
And the more I tried the more I realized

I don't believe in things I cannot see
I've had enough
Don't you understand I'm half the man?
I've said enough
The life I used to live I have left behind
The pile of doubt you had in me went on to shine I am over
I am gathered, strong unstoppable

You remember how I used to be
You remember a connection so strong
You remember how sweet it was
You remember only you
But the more I tried the more I realized

I don't believe in things I cannot see
I've had enough
Don't you understand I'm half the man?
I've said enough
The life I used to live I have left behind
The pile of doubt you had in me went on to shine

I am over
I am gathered, strong unstoppable

I don't believe in things I cannot see
I've had enough
Don't you understand I'm half the man?
I've said enough
The life I used to live I have left behind
The pile of doubt you had in me went on to shine


10. When I Was You

Music & lyrics by Kjetil Nordhus
Forced out of sleep
the dream was to real
And on the other side
I was you and you were blind
Forced into deep
no dream that could heal
the feeling of disbelief
as I was you and you were blind


11. Childsplay Part II

Music by Bernt Andre Moen
Lyrics by Tchort
Sun setting on a sweet summers day
The sound of children playing a wicked game
Leaving stains, on the soul
Twilight crawled across the sky
Did anyone say goodbye?
Did anyone see you?

The playground is empty now
The game is over
Lying on my back
The Game Is Over
