TheBear147801 The album is Eight tracks of pure emotion and quality. It's a mix of electronics, guitar riffs and powerful vocals.
From the lively 'Lone Wolf' to the soulful 'The Sickness' every track fit perfectly and gives the album a nice balance.
The best is left to last. 'Collide' has a beautiful guitar opening and bass leading into the verse. Linda's soaring vocals in the chorus are to die for. Favorite track: Collide.

Track Name: Lone Wolf
What have you done here?
I shed all my tears
My cold heart left in a dead world
I survived alone
I survived alone

Look at my scars now and then realize
It’s so hard not to break and fall
I’m singing to a new moon

Better off, better off alone

Now don’t try to help me
I can face my own woe
Now don’t try to catch me
I’m just like a lone wolf

What’s going on here?
I’ll make it clear
I’m not the one who should live in fear
I survived alone
I survived alone

Watch your back now 'cause you’ll pay the price
Cover your neck 'cause I won’t think twice
I’ll be standing tall

Better off, better off alone

Now don’t try to help me
I can face my own woe
Now don’t try to catch me
I’m just like a lone wolf

Do you know, do you know I’m a lone wolf?
Do you know, do you know you’ll be dead and gone?
Do you know, do you know I’m a lone wolf?
Do you know, do you know you’ll be dead and gone?
You’ll be gone
You’ll be dead and gone

I will run and crawl
I’ll be standing tall

Now don’t try to help me
I can face my own woe
Now don’t try to catch me
I’m just like a lone wolf
Track Name: Burn
Walking down on the boulevard thinking
"Where the hell can I hide myself?"
Did I lose it all?

Tired of filling the emptiness baby
It’s so hard to be all alone
Now do you care at all?

Someone tell me why I’m here
How to make this sorrow disappear
Can you tell me now that everything’s just fine like this?

’Cause I’m burning down the house
I burn my affliction
I burn my addiction
‘Cause I’m burning down the house
I’m burning these walls right to the ground

‘Cause I’m burning down the house
I burn my affliction
I burn my addiction
‘Cause I’m burning down the house
I’m burning these walls right to the ground

Six a.m. still wandering
I got loneliness keeping company
But I don’t mind at all

Each step brings me closer baby
Isn’t it hard to be all alone
Or you don’t care at all?

Someone tell me why I’m here
Can I make this sorrow disappear?
Do you really tell yourself that you’re okay with this?

’Cause I’m burning down the house
I burn my affliction
I burn my addiction
‘Cause I’m burning down the house
I’m burning these walls right to the ground

‘Cause I’m burning down the house
I burn my affliction
I burn my addiction
‘Cause I’m burning down the house
I’m burning these walls right to the ground

Couldn’t keep me safe
Couldn’t keep me safe from misery
Couldn’t keep me safe from all those lonely nights awake
Couldn’t keep me safe
Couldn’t keep me safe from misery
Couldn’t keep me safe from all those nights away from you

’Cause I’m burning down the house
I burn my affliction
I burn my addiction
‘Cause I’m burning down the house
I’m burning these walls right to the ground

‘Cause I’m burning down the house
‘Cause I’m burning down the house
I’m burning these walls right to the ground

'Cause I’m burning down the house
Track Name: Mayday
Right now I feel

No one can help me

So incomplete

Floating in a dark sea



So I lost who I am, sinking into black

But tonight I won't stay

I will find the way to escape

Oh no, just don't know where to go



Take me, come and take me away

Save me, can't you hear my mayday?

Calling mayday

Calling mayday

Fix me, come and close my eyes and

Drive me to my paradise

Calling mayday

Calling mayday



So many lights I can see through the dark

I still don't know if I can trust anyone

I'm sick and tired of this starless night

Can't you fill up my crave for daylight?



So I lost who I am, sinking into black

But tonight I won't stay

I will find the way to escape

Oh no, just don't know where to go



Take me, come and take me away

Save me, can't you hear my mayday?

Calling mayday

Calling mayday

Fix me, come and close my eyes and

Drive me to my paradise

Calling mayday

Calling mayday

My faded eyes

See the world in black and white

I feel like nothing

Has been

Painted bright

Take me, come and take me away

Save me, can't you hear my mayday?

Calling mayday

Calling mayday

Fix me, come and close my eyes and

Drive me to my paradise

Calling mayday

Calling mayday



Take me

Oh take me home

Calling mayday

Calling mayday
Track Name: Echo
You will never know my days without you, oh
And now I wonder
If it's right to disappear
Don't know what's the point of breathing without you
And now I want to
I just want to fade away

Where do I come from?
Now I don't know
'Cause your arms were my abode
Looking for a place where I can stay
Where I won't feel this way

Now I only hear the echo
Only hear the echo of your name
Now I only hear the echo
Only hear the echo of your name
Now I only hear the echo
Only hear the echo of
Now I only hear the echo of your name

I will never know your days without me, oh
So did it hurt you?
Did you even shed a tear?
I know you will fly into someone else's sky
I'm going under
Since you're not here by my side

Where do I come from?
Now I don't know
'Cause your arms were my abode
I know there's no place where I can stay
Where I won't see your face

Now I only hear the echo
Only hear the echo of your name
Now I only hear the echo
Only hear the echo of your name
Now I only hear the echo
Only hear the echo of
Now I only hear the echo of your name

You will never ever know
I can't ever let it go

Now I only hear the echo
Only hear the echo of your name
Now I only hear the echo
Only hear the echo of your name
Now I only hear the echo
Only hear the echo of
Now I only hear the echo of your name

Now I only hear the echo
(Of your name)
Only hear the echo of your name
Now I only hear the echo
(Of your name)
Only hear the echo of your name
Track Name: The Sickness
Can you imagine how it feels
To be lost, to disappear?
Night by night, demons fight
In my bed and in my mind

Was it hard to fall asleep
Or it comes so easily?
I know one day you'll be awake
Feeling your heart full of stains

I know it's time to make a change
'Cause I can't bear the price I’m paying
My clarity slowly decays
I’m going insane

Don't you know
I’ve lost my mind, I’ve lost control
Don't you know
This is the sickness in my soul
Can you tell me why, tell me why I’m breathing?
But my heart, yes my heart stopped beating
Don't you know this is my cry, this is my fall

You were home oh, you were here
When you said there's nothing to fear
Now I’m stuck with the thought
There's no place where I belong

Do you feel the hurt I’m feeling?
Do you share the grudge I’m feeding?
I know one day you'll feel the ache
It will tear your heart away

Don't you know
I’ve lost my mind, I’ve lost control
Don't you know
This is the sickness in my soul
Can you tell me why, tell me why I’m breathing?
But my heart, yes my heart stopped beating
Don't you know this is my cry, this is my fall

This is the cry, this is the fall
This is the sickness in my soul

This is the time for me to let this go
This is the sickness in, it's the sickness in my soul

Don't you know
I’ve lost my mind, I’ve lost control
Don't you know
This is the sickness in my soul
Can you tell me why, tell me why I’m breathing?
But my heart, yes my heart stopped beating
Don't you know this is my cry, this is my fall

This is the cry, this is the fall
This is the sickness in, it’s the sickness in my soul
Track Name: Half Alive
Waiting to feel alive
Fooling ourselves thinking like this we'll survive
But it's not alright, we're not alright

Crawling through these black days
Everything's the same, we're damaged, we are vain
We are half alive, we're half alive

But you say
That you don't need me when you drown, to catch you when you're falling down
We are half alive
We can barely survive
We fake a smile, we hide the pain, we fall and crash, we're not the same
I don't feel alright
We are half alive

Numb men shaking cold hands
This is who we become, withered without love
But it's not alright, we're not alright

I forgot how's life out of this room
I want to see the sky but it won't be soon
We are half alive, we're half alive

But you say
That you don't need me when you drown, to catch you when you're falling down
We are half alive
We can barely survive
We fake a smile, we hide the pain, we fall and crash, we're not the same
I don't feel alright
We are half alive

But you say
That you don't need me when you drown, to catch you when you're falling down
We are half alive
We can barely survive
We fake a smile, we hide the pain, we fall and crash, we're not the same
I don't feel alright
We are half alive
Track Name: Empty Room
I’m feeling like an empty room
And everyone can see right through
Don't know what's my aim, don't know where's my flame
It all makes me feel so blue
I’m just a bad clone of myself
And it's so sad that I’m aware
I’m wasting my life away

That's a shame
I can't face this heartache
I have lost my way

I just want to scream, spit out my disease
Will this silence disappear?
I just want to run, I need to feel the sun
Will it melt my frozen heart?
I’m crying, I’m fading
I lost all my faith and
I’m driven so crazy, I can't stand it no more

I feel empty

Trapped inside an empty room
I close my eyes to change the view
I’m sitting all alone on my pathetic throne
What am I doing?
I’ve no clue
It's all so white, I’m so blind
Can you tell me how I’m still locked inside this room?

I just want to scream, spit out my disease
Will this silence disappear?
I just want to run, I need to feel the sun
Will it melt my frozen heart?
I’m crying, I’m fading
I lost all my faith and
I’m driven so crazy, I can't stand it no more

No i can't escape

So I’ve locked the door and the key is gone
Now I know I can't escape

I just want to scream, spit out my disease
Will this silence disappear?
I just want to run, I need to feel the sun
Will it melt my frozen heart?
I’m crying, I’m fading
I lost all my faith and
I’m driven so crazy, I can't stand it no more
No more
I’m driven so crazy, I can't stand it no more
Track Name: Collide
So I’m driving, leaving
Far away from this damn city
Lights watch me passing by
And I know I’ll be fine
By staying away from my mistakes
Watching rain down on the sea
Bright white cliffs
Tears rolling with the waves
I know I can't erase your memory and run away, away

You are the one I can't replace

Tell me if your heart can bear this cold and empty sky
Tell me if your lies are burning inside just like mine, oh why?

Turning pages, places, pieces of myself
Then stranger faces but I know I can't pretend
You're always on my mind
You're like a ghost that cannot hide
Singing louder but off key
Heart beats faster
People look at me but I look for you in their eyes
I’m like a ghost but cannot hide

Tell me if your heart can bear this cold and empty sky
Tell me if your lies are burning inside just like mine, oh why?

When I look inside myself, when I look at all this mess
I see nothing but, nothing but regret
Take a look inside yourself, tell me if there's any chance
To make our worlds collide, worlds collide again

Tell me if your heart can bear this cold and empty sky
Tell me if your lies are burning inside just like mine, oh why?

Tell me if your heart can bear this cold and empty sky
Tell me if your heart can bear these lies
