Track Name: Love is God
Your love is God,
Makes me wanna praise it
Makes me feel adored
And it never leaves me

Your love is God
Filling me with grace
Chasing all my clouds
I will never lose my faith

Love me ‘til I’m dead
Save me from myself
Raise me with your bliss
Wash away my fears

Love me ‘til I’m dead
Save me from myself
Raise me with your bliss
Wash away my fears

Your love is God
I was just a pagan
Makes me wanna hope
I will never fall again

Your love is God
Spreading in my veins
Never leaves me cold
I will never hurt again

Love me ‘til I’m dead
Save me from myself
Raise me with your bliss
Wash away my fears

Love me ‘til I’m dead
Save me from myself
Raise me with your bliss
Wash away my fears

Love me ‘til I’m dead
Save me from myself
Love me ‘til I’m dead
Save me from myself

Track Name: Ego
Stay where you are
Can’t have you closer
Don’t wanna catch your eyes
Don’t wanna feel unarmed

I know my sins
I know my weakness
But I won’t let you win
Dance around my remains

You want me
Unwant me
You love me
Unlove me

Go ahead try to make me bend
I know you love it when I call your name
Tie me down while you still can
In my heart you’re already dead

You’re just a fraud
I was your ego
Don’t wanna be your dog
Don’t wanna make you proud

Look at yourself
You lost your glory
Don’t wanna see your face
Now that I really see

You want me
Unwant me
You love me
Unlove me

Go ahead try to make me bend
I know you love it when I call your name
Tie me down while you still can
In my heart you’re already dead

You want me
Unwant me
You love me
Unlove me

Go ahead try to make me bend
I know you love it when I call your name
Tie me down while you still can
In my heart you’re already dead

You want me
In my mind you’re already dead
You love me
In my mind you’re already dead

Written by Amandine Stioui
Track Name: Comedown
Lay down, no, don’t you close your eyes
Don’t sleep, now it’s time you think again
I’m at your feet, begging you to hold my hand
Struggling with your mind trying to forget
What you crave

Daylight, don’t leave me hanging
I’m innocent, why don’t you kill me now?

Sunrise, don’t leave me yearning
I’m innocent, why don’t you kill me now?

Fight back, no, don’t you lose your game
Stand up now, it’s time you feel again
You’re on your knees, begging me to stop the pain
Fighting with your brain, trying to recall
What you hate

Daylight, don’t leave me hanging
I’m innocent, why don’t you kill me now?

Sunrise, don’t leave me yearning
I’m innocent, why don’t you kill me now?

Daylight, don’t leave me hanging
I’m innocent, why don’t you kill me now?

Why don’t you kill me now?

Written by Amandine Stioui
Track Name: Trauma
You know I fade without you
I’m as pale as the moon
Colors look all the same
I feel numb, I feel dead

As I lay in my bed
I wish I could feel pain
But I stay wide awake
With this hole in my head

In my head

Can’t you see you broke my bones
You failed me hard
You let me down

Can’t you see you broke my bones
You failed me hard
You let me down

You know I live without you
But I don’t think of you
And the colors are fake
And I’m still quite a mess

And I want to hate you
Make you ache like I do
May time save my soul
Take away your shadow

Your shadow

Can’t you see you broke my bones
You failed me hard
You let me down

Can’t you see you broke my bones
You failed me hard
You let me down

Can’t you see you broke my bones
You failed me hard
You let me down

Written by Amandine Stioui
Track Name: Midnight Love
I, I am your burden
I’m in your mind I made you mine
You, you hear me whisper
I make you choose what you decide

Don’t try to fight me
Don’t try to fight me
I’m not your enemy

Don’t you ignore me
Don’t you ignore me
'Cause you are nothing without me

Follow me love into the light
Forget the day, embrace the night
Just one more ride before the dark
I’ll take you home before midnight

I am the voices
That make you feel ashamed again
And I, I am the darkness
That makes you want to hurt yourself

Don’t try to fight me
Don’t try to fight me
I’m not your enemy

Don’t you ignore me
Don’t you ignore me
'Cause you are nothing without me

Follow me love into the light
Forget the day, embrace the night
Just one more ride before the dark
I’ll take you home before midnight

Follow me love into the light
Forget the day, embrace the night

Don’t try to fight me (x4)

Track Name: Alienation
Isolation
Desperation
Hallucination
Alienation

Isolation
Desperation
Hallucination
Alienation

I am back from the dead
Where all hope goes away
Where your tears turn to blood
And the sun makes you cold

Isolation
Desperation
Hallucination
Alienation

Isolation
Desperation
Hallucination
Alienation

I was lost out of space
Floating out of myself
Falling into the air
Stranger in my own head

Isolation
Desperation
Hallucination
Alienation

Isolation
Desperation
Hallucination
Alienation

I can feel my own skin
And it hurts, it feels real
But the bruises have healed
Nothing left to be seen

Alienation (x8)

Written by Amandine Stioui
Track Name: Ghost
n the dark of the night
I am on my way
Home is where I can hide
I am not afraid

I’m so cold and tired
I just wanna rest
Put myself into bed
And sleep until the end

Inbetween space and earth
Life is drifting away
I am just a lost soul
Wandering in the pouring rain

Don’t push me away
I just wanna stay
Promise I’ll let you sleep
You won’t know that I’m here

Promise I’ll let you breathe
I just wanna be close
I will not smell your skin
I will be like a ghost

Standing in the doorway
I’m shaking like a leaf
I don’t know if you saw me
Cause you just looked away

I can’t seem to find a way
To make you stare at me
So am I flesh and bones ?
Or am I just a ghost ?

Inbetween space and earth
Life is drifting away
I am just a lost soul
Wandering in the pouring rain

Don’t push me away
I just wanna stay
Promise I’ll let you sleep
You won’t know that I’m here

Promise I’ll let you breathe
I just wanna be close
I will not smell your skin
I will be like a ghost

Written by Amandine Stioui
Track Name: Sabotage
Running away from your life
Can’t bear the passing of time
Like scars on your heart
To remind you of the past

You’re never living the moment
Always losing what you want
Afraid to make the same mistakes
And end up hurting like hell

What is it that makes you feel
It was better then
When you were too scared to live
When you were so scared of death

What is it that makes you want
To go back to that place
When you were wandering around
Searching for your fate

And you keep messing with your life
Destroying what you can’t control
You’d like to forget how to cry
You’d like to forget how to love

You’ll never be happy again
But you were not happy then
Afraid to mess with your doom
Afraid to live like a fool

What is it that makes you feel
It was better then
When you were too scared to live
When you were so scared of death

What is it that makes you want
To go back to that place
When you were wandering around
Searching for your fate

Track Name: Toi et Moi n'Existe Plus
Dimanche, 4 heures du matin
J’observe les va-et-vient
Incessants des gens insensibles
Parfums douteux et gorges déployées

Devant le club, épaules dénudées
Et dans la main, un verre de rosé
Mon eyeliner s’est fait la malle
Témoin honteux de ces mots qui font mal

Je ne t’aime plus
Toi et moi n’existe plus
On ne s’aime plus
Moi et toi
Toi et moi

Je ne t’aime plus
Toi et moi n’existe plus
On ne s’aime plus
Moi et toi
Toi et moi

Dimanche, 6 heures du matin
La nuit s’achève et j’me sens pas bien
Mes souvenirs n’ont plus aucun sens
Enfin je réalise les conséquences

Je ne sais plus vivre sans toi
Je ne veux plus subir les dégâts
J’monte dans un taxi aux vitres teintées noir
Et prends la direction d’un nouveau départ

Je ne t’aime plus
Toi et moi n’existe plus
On ne s’aime plus
Moi et toi
Toi et moi

Je ne t’aime plus
Toi et moi n’existe plus
On ne s’aime plus
Moi et toi
Toi et moi

Written by Hélène de Thoury
Track Name: Apologies
Bring me back, take me home
Don’t leave me all alone
I know I shut you down

Thought it’d be better off
Without you and your love
But I’ll falling down

Forget the words that I have said
I was not myself
Forgive the mess that I have made
I was just a wreck

Bring me back, out of sight
I have lost track of time
Please don’t ask me why

I know I’ve caused so much pain
I was losing my head
But I’m back again

Forget the words that I have said
I was not myself
Forgive the mess that I have made
I was just a wreck

Forget the words that I have said
I was not myself
Forgive the mess that I have made
I was just a wreck

Written by Amandine Stioui
Track Name: Agoraphobia (album version)
This noise is making me lose my head again
This light is making me lose my sight, I swear
I used to love when everything was messed up
And I used to hate the quiet places of this world

I take a breath run as fast as I can
Try to escape before I go insane
I take a breath run as fast as I can
Try to escape before I go insane

Flashing lights cutting through my brain
Distant shouts echoing in my head
My heart is racing I’m starting to faint
I hit the ground I lose myself

Now I’m afraid I can never be whole again
I try to face it but it’s starting all over again
I used to love being surrounded by the crowd
I used to hate the smooth comfort of my bed

I take a breath run as fast as I can
Try to escape before I go insane
I take a breath run as fast as I can
Try to escape before I go insane

Flashing lights cutting through my brain
Distant shouts echoing in my head
My heart is racing I’m starting to faint
I hit the ground I lose myself
