Track Name: Follow the Map (Prelude)
Instrumental
Track Name: Sorry
Too late for an excuse
The truth is always on time
I feel the thrill in my bones
I see the hate in your eyes

Too soon for the turtle to run
I'd rather be in a different tale
Will I follow you down the hole?
Will I leave crawling away?

Sorry, sorry...
I'm sorry for the words unspoken
Silence always seemed a better choice to me

Old fears, they’re getting entwined
where you keep hiding your own.
What if I'm a dog chasing cars
I like to step in puddles, to trip on stones.
Maybe I like to trip on stones…

What if this was actually true
What if you were really mine
What if I made a mistake
What if it's all about time

Sorry, sorry...
I'm sorry for the words unspoken
Silence always seemed a better choice to me
Sorry, sorry...
I'm sorry for that glass unbroken
Missing pieces won’t ever get attached again

Like a magnet in reverse
That's a coat I always had to wear
Easy roads don't seem to work for me

Sorry, sorry...
I'm sorry for the words unspoken
I'm worried now that I forgot them
I'm sorry, I'm sorry....
I'm sorry I thought I'd be broken
I'm afraid I'll be my own and only lonely one
Track Name: You
Where are you when I'm with you
All gloomy, doubtful and bemused
This is the moment, this is the place
What else do I need to get you to stay

You are the only star on this city sky
I… I just want you tonight
I need you by my side

How long before you realize
above the clouds the sun always shine
The lines we wrote may not be our best
but the pages left seem still enough

You are the only star on this city sky
I… I just want you tonight
I need you by my side

If this is not the way then you show me how
Remember the old days when we were not so proud
Just take a look ahead, take a look around
Hold on to what you feel, no rush to waste it out

Don't you say you don't wanna try
Best things are yet to come
How could I not fall for that smile
You don't speak, we run out of time

You are the only star on this city sky
I… I just want you tonight
I need you
Cause you are the only star on this city sky
I… I just want you tonight
I need you
I need you
I need you by my side
I need you by my side
Track Name: Pessimistic Smile
Don't keep hiding your mistakes
as they're slipping through your fingers
Shaking off the blame turned out an easy to become fearless
They rise the pressure in the streets,
lower the value of my dreams
Every day my will leans closer to my knees

Against the wall
My rage is boiling inside
You push me down, you don’t want me screaming
All I’ve got left is just a pessimistic smile

If you keep squeezing out our brains
we’ll pick up every drop to build a different world with common sense
There is no other flag we need.
I want you to look upon my face
same flesh and bones that you outrage
Time to forget about the past, look for what lies ahead.

Fear the silence of your steps
It’s time to take a stand for change

Against the wall
My rage is boiling inside
You push me down, you don’t want me screaming
All I’ve got left is just a pessimistic smile

Against the wall
My rage is boiling inside
You push me down, you don’t want me screaming
Oh what I’ve got left if you take away my smile...

(Against the wall…)
Inside my rage is boiling
(You push me down…)
You don’t want me screaming
(I can’t go forth…)
Want you to look upon my face
(Don’t hide your smile…)
And see my pessimistic smile
Track Name: Timing
You feel time runs faster than you
No safe road, no guarantee of truth
With every step your wits are put at stake
But I learned dreams have expiry date

You see young people getting old
I'm knocking on their brains, no one’s home
A garage left full of mistakes
Only fools drive away without regrets

You’d better learn to keep up
There’s no way back.

Another train to choose
Another chance to lose
You only played to dream
The child is gone, the game is through
(Repeat)

Way too far to be queen in the beehive
One more stranger to the survivors line
Now will you be next to give up
when still you have some bridges to burn down?

Still a hard way along
Always through the narrow door

Another train to choose
Another chance to lose
You only played to dream
The child is gone, the game is through
(Repeat)

The grass was always greener on the other side
The borders became thinner but you never crossed the line
Always a step ahead, no time to make amends
And you feel nostalgic for the life of someone else
And you feel the panic cause you know you didn’t care enough
Well I say, don’t care too much

When time is not enough, it’s all about timing…
When time is not enough, it’s all about timing…
When time is not enough, it’s all about timing…
When time is not enough, it’s all about timing…

You feel time runs faster than you
