Track Name: At the Graveyard (DS edit)
At the Graveyard

are you shining?
is it a light that lasts forever?
Does it come from the sun?
are you bright enough to not forget you still see the shadow?
Well no .. that's no evidence
but this meant something different to all of us before

Listen, is it nothing but a challenge we just fear to fail?
Listen, is it nothing but a very loud and pretty dodgy pretence?
maybe this is nothing but a way to forget what we did not love before
or maybe this is nothing but a collection of smiles for compliance

are you diving?
cause from the darkest side of the picture i can't see the bottom
and i know … you need to put a little more of show into your life
but I've always tried to put ... what?
a little more of life into this bloody show

Listen, is it nothing but a challenge we just fear to fail?
Listen, is it nothing but a very loud pretty dodgy defence? so is it? is it?
maybe this is nothing but a way to forget what we could not love before
or maybe this is nothing but a collection of slaps on the back of our sloth

cause I don't need to bring any praise to the graveyard,
to the graveyard
no I won't need to bring any falsehood to that tombstone,
to my tombstone
and I won't need to look any younger at the graveyard,
any more beautiful than this
I'll be just playing a real show for the ghost and the pure souls
on my tombstone at the graveyard
from the back of our sloth
at the graveyard
on the back of our sloth
at the graveyard

Track Name: Instead (ML Remix)
Instead

one more time you keep the language wrong
you save the meaning
time to get ahead to the end and back to the beginning

instead of all those steps you use to hide in stead
leaving pale puddles in the air
reading pale footsteps on a sound

one more time you keep the voice down
you release the feeling
time to get ahead to the end and back to the meaning

instead of all those steps you use to hide in stead
leaving pale puddles in the air
reading pale footsteps on a sound

and now come to spread your wasted pride
surviving through the back door
you've got to get back to see how long it burns
you've got to get a back door
you've got to get back to get out from the front
you've got to get back home
you've got to get back to wash your love again
you've got to get up before
falling down again

now that is time get ahead to the end and back to ...
mhhhhh ... time get ahead to the end and back
back to that meaning.

Track Name: Music Man (AL edit) 
Music Man

A red car whose flames shades to grey
four bags, a bunch of regrets
a piano, a drum and a guitar
and the baton is passed to the kids

and don't you find it's fine?
don't you see that's more than what you fight for?
or is it not?

the music man is sweeping the floor
mumbling a song to forget
the music man now is closing the door

Then years go by rush after rush
it is always that matter of time
big plans get trapped in the eyes
and in the strains of a self-painted crown

and don't you find it's alright?
don't you see that's all you could have died for ...
and all you've been through?

the music man is waving goodbye
quickly he's packing the car
the music man now is driving back home
and he still sings ... na na na na na ...

So here is the story you will miss
here comes the man you turned down
with everything you broke apart
and now I give it back to you fixed
and whole
