Track Name: The Drifting
THE DRIFTING
(B. Arabaca)

I
Take the driver's seat, I'll enjoy the view
Drive me where you want, where you want me to
Drifting all the way to a pointless stray
Side by side with you is all I wanted to

REFRAIN
Stay on course with you is a common thrill
You see it in my way a speck of certainty

II
Endless passion highs on a lover's lane
The way to satisfy a man's reckless drive, yeah
Shifting all directions on uneven grounds
But spending time with you is all I wanted to, yeah…

REFRAIN
Stay on course with you is a common thrill
You see it in my way a speck of certainty
Track Name: Mantle of Disguise
MANTLE OF DISGUISE
(B. Arabaca)

I
I'm wide awake but I'm blinded
You turned my light into darkness
I'd set a wall from your shadows
It's time to break at the seams

CHORUS I
God save you from your lies
Drop your mantle of disguise
It's never too late for change
To see things black and white

II
Time will pass as you told me
No hint of guilt with your lines
Wrap yourself with pretensions
Look noble inside and out

CHORUS II
God save you from your lies
Drop your mantle of disguise
It's never too late for change
To see things black and white
It doesn't matter if they find
The truth will make it right

INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS II
God save you from your lies
Drop your mantle of disguise
It's never too late for change
To see things black and white
It doesn't matter if they find
The truth will make it right
Track Name: Out of Control (Into The Void)
OUT OF CONTROL (INTO THE VOID)
(B. Arabaca)

I
Hazy brown eyes
Staring blankly into the wall
Try to reach you
It seems you have a world of your own
Pacing nowhere
You drag yourself into the core

REFRAIN
Crash and burning, as you’ve taken your fall
Feel it coming, body’s craving for more
Vacillating, you’re now out of control
Oh, slowly (breaking/fading) into the void

II
Glassy eyes blood shot
Pleasure drug is claiming your soul
Needle sweet spot rot
Skin and bones is taking its toll
Resurrection
Saving grace is simply a blur

REFRAIN
Crash and burning, as you’ve taken your fall
Feel it coming, body’s craving for more
Vacillating, you’re now out of control
Oh, slowly (breaking/fading) into the void


INSTRUMENTAL


REFRAIN
Crash and burning, as you’ve taken your fall
Feel it coming, body’s craving for more
Vacillating, you’re now out of control
Oh, slowly (breaking/fading) into the void
Track Name: Nearly Lost You
NEARLY LOST YOU
(B. Arabaca)

I
Around you my world is spinning round
Moving in circles 'til I fall down
Catch my breath to please you and I forget myself...
Of hows and whys for doing so, I pledge to you my skin and bones
Embrace a new beginning, there's no more hour to waste…

CHORUS
So many times we're far away
Stray off the path in different ways
I thought I nearly lost you
The pain of you remains

II
To measure with all the games we played,
it comes along in dreadful days
Of here and there, we carry the words we wish to say
Oh I've tried to forget, all the things I might regret
Is it worth a treasure, to keep you in my head?

CHORUS
So many times we're far away
Stray off the path in different ways
I thought I nearly lost you
The pain of you remains

INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS
So many times we're far away
Stray off the path in different ways
I thought I nearly lost you
The pain of you remains
Track Name: Life On A Standstill
LIFE ON A STANDSTILL
(B. Arabaca)

I
Pain has slowed the time of healing
I'm walking down the weathered road
Days passed me by with empty nights
With none to spare but candle light

REFRAIN:
It's over…
when you have wanted more
It's over…
when you have closed the door
It's over…
Life on a standstill

II
As time drew near to end my sorrow…
I turned myself with a saving grace
With ease, I longed to face tomorrow
My world has found a burning drive...

REFRAIN:
It's over…
when you have wanted more
It's over…
when you have closed the door
It's over…
Life on a standstill

BRIDGE:
And all I have is worn out hope…
Find my way back to life
Making up for the loss, and sacrifice…

It's over…
Life on a standstill
It's over…

It's over…
Life on a standstill
It's over…

It's over…
It’s over...
Track Name: Aimless Breath
AIMLESS BREATH
(B. Arabaca)

I
So sudden and swiftly, as you're leaving me
Too lonely for words to describe to break me free
Drop everything of the pieces, you have in me
I'm taking my aimless breath, and let it be…

CHORUS:
Have we ever gone too far?
Have we ever tried so hard?
Sooner or later, it's now or never…
Our fate is begging for a chance…

II
You're leaving no trace of regret, how could that be?
Now that you ask for forgiveness and have your way
Try hard as I can to undo the wrong I say
Out of my head, I find my dignity…

CHORUS:
Have we ever gone too far?
Have we ever tried so hard?
Sooner or later, it's now or never…
Our fate is begging for a chance…

(INSTRUMENTAL)

CHORUS:
Have we ever gone too far?
Have we ever tried so hard?
Sooner or later, it's now or never…
Our fate is begging for a chance…
Track Name: Blind Fascination
BLIND FASCINATION
(B. Arabaca)

I
You could have lied
You could have sinned
To win her back
You didn’t try

II
Repressed emotions
A mortal sin?
She could have told you
She never try

CHORUS
A hopeless devotion to blind fascination,
a lingering madness in you
With all the commotion of your contradiction,
it’s hiding all the weakness from you

III
Your holy actions fell into dirt
Her valid thoughts, turned into doubts
All things considered to speak the truth
You heard a voice to mute the words

CHORUS
A hopeless devotion to blind fascination,
a lingering madness in you
With all the commotion of your contradiction,
it’s hiding all the weakness from you

(INSTRUMENTAL)

CHORUS
A hopeless devotion to blind fascination,
a lingering madness in you
With all the commotion of your contradiction,
it’s hiding all the weakness from you
Track Name: Never Be The Same
NEVER BE THE SAME
(B. Arabaca)
 
I
Show you how to make us stay
You look for things the other way
And so I learn the games you play
Drag myself to hollowed grounds of solitude and darkness
Sink deeper to a fading height
 
II
The strangest start to happen, in living my life without you
The hardest part is moving on
Breaking through the daylight, the tide of change is on my side
Riding on tomorrow’s will…
 
CHORUS
Oh will I ever see you again?
Torn between the longing, and the weight of regret
Wrap my arms around you, “losing my defenses”
It will never be the same again…
 
III
A moment flies with nothing
Before me, all my fear is gone
I pause and rest my emptiness
I choose to sleep my end of days
Nobody knows what lies ahead
A peace of mind is now in place
 
IV
Walk down alone this morning
The sun is still in hiding
I see the world in hazy gaze
 
CHORUS
Oh will I ever see you again?
Torn between the longing, and the weight of regret
Wrap my arms around you, “losing my defenses”
It will never be the same again…
 
(INSTRUMENTAL)

(CHORUS)
It will never be the same again…
Track Name: The Elusive Vagabond
THE ELUSIVE VAGABOND
(B. Arabaca)

I
Hey girl
Had you and I met
You cut the string of poor man’s heart
A vagabond, no trace of
conscience
Nothing is spared but short goodbyes

REFRAIN
Breakdown, shakedown, meltdown, a major letdown
Break-up, shake-up, make-up, a major let-up

CHORUS
You dug upon my grave
Dropped me in haste
You marked me with disgrace
Unworthy waste

II
Hey girl
Your life’s a fiction
Your words and cries were same as lies
I’m part of your unknowing victims
You’re surely worth a million crime

REFRAIN
Breakdown, shakedown, meltdown, a major letdown
Break-up, shake-up, make-up, a major let-up

CHORUS
You dug upon my grave
Dropped me in haste
You marked me with disgrace
Unworthy waste

(INSTRUMENTAL)

CHORUS
You dug upon my grave
Dropped me in haste
You marked me with disgrace
Unworthy waste

Breakdown, shakedown, meltdown, a major letdown
Break-up, shake-up, make-up, a major let-up…
Track Name: World of Meaning
WORLD OF MEANING
(B. Arabaca)

I
Moving in a ground with no direction
Circling in a point of pointless wander
Set yourself up high, you’re bound to fall
Not everything you seek is right with reasons

CHORUS
In a world that has no meaning
You get lost and never be found
And all for nothing…
You exist but you never live

II
Look into your soul and count your blessing
You act as if your days are short and numbered
Walk with careful steps, no stone unturned
And in the end, your will to live is stronger

CHORUS 2
Now your world is full of meaning
Living life through faith and love
And all for something,
You redeem yourself somehow

Oooh Oooh (INSTRUMENTAL)

BRIDGE
Go on as your choice is made,
everything is falling through…
As you hold on to your dreams,
everything is possible…

CHORUS 2
Now your world is full of meaning
Living life through faith and love
And all for something,
You redeem yourself somehow

Oooh Oooh (INSTRUMENTAL)
