  • Record/Vinyl

    Test print vinyl (before the first EDITION). Long long time ago, in the same Galaxy that made CD´s, record-companies used to make ”TESTPRINTS!”. Hell, now you too, can own your own. That´s right ”TEST PRINT”. It´s really pretty unique. It´s the first ones they make. And there are only 3 of these. Neat huh?)

What's your your number?
Get back in line...
Inside
Inside

Could you get any closer than what you already are?
Could it possibly get any clearer?
Monkey-boy with no hope.
I was wrong all along about people like you
Your spirit and confidence all infused...

Think you'll never pay for the things you choose.

Magpies and crows
Do rights and don'ts

You'd give yourself gladly to demons
Give all your power away
Give it all up for a lie

And you do again
Again and again
over and over and over
And over again

You've been caught cheating
Manipulation and deceit
Utilize the drama
Better pray that no-one catches on

Come down slowly
Move with care
Don't be stupid

Magpies and crows
Do rights and don'ts
You'd give yourself gladly to demons
You happily give it away
You love it so they violate you
Now that you've got someone to blame
The tranquil submission of will
The soulless rejection to feel
You don´t know if it´s even real.

Where´s your communication?
Track Name: Did You Find Your Name
DID YOU FIND YOUR NAME?

Did you call all you know?
Did you cancel the paper?
Did you dry and wipe,
for prints and smudges?
No traces, no room for remarks.

You bled yourself,
as if by chance.
Most goodbyes are just excuses
for not coming back.
Trust in me.
You might as well.
It´s all we´ve got.

Reinvent the wheel.
Find yourself a new voice.
What will you do?
Is your heart even in it?
Castaway.
Let this be a lesson for the lost sheep.

Lucifer, did you find what you had in mind?
Did your sweetheart still your desire?
How did you get yourself past the fall?
Don´t you ever get sick of it?

Through the fire to rest in peace
Find acceptance within the grief
Scarred
Broken

Are you willing you stand up and breathe it out?
Are you ready to wash it off once again?

Indifference? Find a way to break out of it.
Track Name: Burn Your Halo
BURN YOUR HALO RED

You´re already there
You´re already waiting
Ready to roll and reel in
Someone´s been telling stories
Someone´s been busy
Someone´s been playing with fire.

Sun might burn your halo red
You won´t likely feel regret
Time heals nothing
No-one really cares for the dead.

"Well down here it´s so fine…"
What´s your problem man?
Can´t get close enough
Close enough to love.

So this is how they´ll find you
Don´t look so surprised
You´re not the only one with secrets
Yeah, how´s that working for you?
Did you get that twisted right?
Did you fill your ego to the brim?

Sun might burn your halo red
You won´t likely feel regret
Time heals nothing
No-one really cares for the dead.

Say, would you like to come inside
Cause it gets cold outside.

Hey, you are not alone.
Track Name: Eyes Wide Open
EYES WIDE OPEN

Laugh into the void
Stare into the eyes
of all-knowing indifference.

To recognize the sun
not for what you wanted
and understand the true meaning of ”Insignificant”.

And sister, "Insufficient" resides in blind ambition.

Aim your gaze up high,
rest your pillars low.

Seven suns will burn.

A nudge towards a new direction.
An entertaining moment by the well.
A lifetime spent in different clay.

Think you'll fit it all into a comfortable and convenient shape?
This package don't care much for games and make-believe.

One by one.(Erase)
Pick em from the same tree they all hang from safely. (Erase)
Peel from them the thin veil of protection. (Erase)
In which they've come to trust. (Erase)
Open up, expose the flesh inside. (Erase)
Succulent and juicy, pink and soft. (Erase)
Wait until they're ripe and ready. (Erase)

Seven suns will burn.

A lifetime worth of dreams gone in a flash.
A friendship signed in blood turns into ash.
Nothing is sacred.

Slow
Love moves.

Eyes wide open.
Track Name: For What It´s Worth
FOR WHAT IT´S WORTH

I swear there's something they're hiding
I swear they're holding back
People should know, there are places you don't go
You'll end up paying a high price alright?

Who's got something to die for?
Who's got something real?
Who's got something real?
Who's got anything?

Paranoid and insincere
In such a hurry to go somewhere
Can't relax until you got what you came for

You will find, you were right on all counts the first time.
Every time they'll reveal who they really are
You just have to listen
Look for the signs
It's all make-believe.

Cold morning.
It will all be revealed in time
A reckoning dawn
The pale light of day.

Just me and you.
Just you and me.

Hey man,
there's nowhere to run to now.
You know that you're going to pay
What a beautiful thing.

For all it's worth.

I've come alive at last.
I finally feel
alive.
Track Name: Beamer
BEAMER

You´re not making sense, right now.
Seems you´re holding on.
Tight.
Right now.
Oh what are you so afraid of?

No-one´s going to hurt you,
like you.
No-one´s going to do to you
What you do.

You´re just waiting for someone to prove that everyone´s the same.
Nothing´s gonna change.
So tell me who´s to blame?
If you set it up to fail,
then what did you expect in the end?

Like you do.
Like you do.

You sell yourself for true conviction
Sell yourself to get inside
You sell a self-serving impression
to justify your self-denying kind.
Nasty little parasite.
Secretive carnivore.
To suck away the light.


Oh what are you so afraid of?
So afraid of?

There´s so much more
There´s so much more
There´s so much more
There´s so much more

No-one´s going to do to you
What you do.
No-one´s going to hurt you
like you do.
Track Name: My Mistake
MY MISTAKE

Youthfully obsessive, cultivating my own premature demise and fall from grace.
I´ve become a picture-perfect model of the things I thought you wanted from me.
Every single time I chiseled myself, closer to the image of how I believed you´d love me.

Please make this quick and painless.
I´m sick of trading time for knowledge.
Been there, done that.
Where´s the satisfaction you´re all talking about?
I carved, bitterness, confusion and grief;
Into the very image I led you to believe.

If this was my mistake;
My mistake, was my mistake.
If this was my mistake,
my mistake, was my mistake
then we are all guilty.

Get up and stand up,
your sense of elevated average
does not exclude you
what you do
this is not over until you´re
ashes and ashes and ashes and
ashes and ashes and
you walk the sands.

One foot in front of the other.

If this was my mistake;
My mistake, was my mistake.
If this was my mistake,
my mistake, was my mistake
then we are all guilty.

Don´t you think we´ve dug too many holes?
Dead and buried heroes.
Strangers faces hiding in the dark.
No one wants to see.

If this was my mistake;
My mistake, was my mistake.
If this was my mistake,
my mistake, was my mistake
then we are all guilty.
Track Name: Inside
INSIDE

Been to the valley
Been to the sea
You been singing rivers soft
and treacherous replies.

Is there anything left?
Is there anyone there?
Come bearing gifts
or don't come at all.

Oh, with sharpened knives they come in congregation
The brethren of the foul and fallen
to let this be bestowed on you.

Fire away.

Betrayal - (Well the time has come.)
Betrayal - (To pay the price.)
Betrayal - (Perhaps you never thought we'd come around?)

Inside.
Inside.
Out.

Been to the valley
Been to the sea
You've been to the mountain
You've seen what's beneath

Love ( Stronger than all )
Love ( Stronger than all ) Feel it rising.
Love ( Stronger than all ) Feel it rising.
Love ( Stronger than all ) Feel it rising

Inside.
Inside.
Out.

Inside out.

All the kings horses
and all the kings men
can't make this right.
Now you're all lined up
A new best friend.
To reassure your alibis…
