Track Name: My Treasure
I can feel the prying eyes
How they drill through me, trying to read my mind
So tell me why you’ve come here to bend and break
Or is it to claim the last remains?

All I have are the secrets
I safely kept away from you
Buried like a treasure
Everything I own are my secrets
I know them safe from you
Buried like a treasure

All I have are the secrets
I safely kept away from you
Everything I own is breaking down

Consider me giving in if thats what you want - I'm down on my knees
Toto rise again with a clear mind, I've got nothing to fear, nothing to lose
Be aware, I will get through this
No matter how far you go

All I have are the secrets
I safely kept away from you
Buried like a treasure
Everything I own are my secrets
I know them safe from you
Buried like a treasure

It’s hard to choke the words, the urge that eats me up
I'm waiting for your wounds to show
It’s about time you break

All I have are the secrets
I safely kept away from you
Everything I own are my secrets
I know them safe from you
Buried like a treasure
Track Name: Expect Us
F**k the traitor

The devil knows how this may end
We might be broken and don't know it
After ten years in the dark we're ready to step out into the light

And may the light be blinding
And may it stop the time
It's worth to know that there is still a sun
And it's light gets reflected by the sweat on our bodies

Now see the lights reflect on our bodies

Hey coward reveal yourself
Why did you never expect us?
Hey traitor you never had what it takes
So seek your place among them

There's a magnet in each of us that tracks us to where we belong
Through what ever may come
Distractions from all cardinal directions
You may ask where's the point to stop and what it may take to get through
Then some say fishes just keep swimming and so should you

And may the price be high
And may the roads be tough
These walls will break and a gate we'll find
To the satisfaction we deserve

To the satisfaction we deserve
To the world we seeked for so long

Hey coward reveal yourself
Why did you never expect us?
Hey traitor you never had what it takes
So seek your place among them

So keep in mind at any time of the day
You should expect us
But feel no fear nor envy
Track Name: A Restless Soul
It must be bigger, the goal we strive for
We cannot chase these shadows forever
Our hands are kept in motion
Our senses covered in dust
This is not what we aim to fight for

We are the reckless
We are a restless soul
In search of something new
With every step we take
We are already on to the next one
In search of something pure

We have to shoulder both
Shame and the glory of the choices we have made
And when our mind is set free,
our conscience clear
We will know what we're ready to die for

We are the reckless
We are a restless soul
In search of something new
With every step we take
We are already on to the next one
In search of something pure

Like the old letters preached:
„The divine spirit shall not remain with mankind forever.“
How could anyone maintain his views of life?
When the end of mercy was already set

Wir sind rücksichtslos
Eine friedlose Seele getrieben von der Suche nach Reinheit
Jeder Schritt ist dem vorherigen der Übernächste
Umherstreunend auf der Suche nach Neuem

We are the reckless
We are a restless soul
In search of something new
With every step we take
We are already on to the next one
In search of something pure

Something new, something pure
A restless soul we are
Something new, something pure
Reckless, hopeless a restless soul we are
Track Name: Rowan
Roots that grow deep into the earth
One hand towards heaven
Fingers pointing to the depths
Bark made out of silk

I Try to resist
I tumble towards you
No Power left for me
All Senses are disturbed

Leaves giving deep shades
Branches full of carens
Stories made of tears
Hopes woven by the sunlight

When the wind blows and shakes the earth
When I bite the hand that feeds me
I need you to guard me
I need you to guard me

Rowan, The Beauty
Crown me your King
Rowan, the darkness
Call me your servant

How I am tempted to taste
The sweet liberty you serve to me
How I am begging you not to lead me
To the bitter end of my asking

But the fool stays a fool and the appetite is stronger
Spend me the shadow that hides me from daylight
Embrace me in a motherly manner
Protect me under your fatherly watch

And the child stays a fool
Reason fails, the mind is weak
Blossom after blossom
You're showing your fateful beauty to me
Impeccable, from the deepest roots
To the greatest flower

When the storm has risen and the water splashes
A horn is heard from the far
I need you to embrace me

Rowan, The Beauty
Crown me your King
Rowan, the darkness
Call me your servant
