Track Name: Maze
Maze

Lightning, suggests excitement
And I know that I’ve been there before
Danger, it’s at my doorstep
Scared, but I’ll open the door
It’s a world of complications
I will never know
If it’s ever the right thing
Or if I’m just being a fool
When I raise my hands and try to reach you
Would you lift me up or will you leave me there

Pitch dark, just like a dungeon
I’m inside and he has locked the door
Spooky, I’m not allowed to question
I have to take it all
It’s a land of mystery no sign will ever show
If I’m on the right track or misguided by his glow
When I raise my hands and try to reach you
Would you lift me up or will you leave me there

As if everybody always know what they’re really looking for
Then why I would be looking out for the symptoms to judge him by the fears from the past and my wounds
Has there ever been anybody setting up a system for love
Track Name: Brother
Brother

Put another plate on the table
Tonight we’re going to have a big meal
He’s on his way soon he’s going to be here
And we’ll talk till we come to a good deal

It’s not disagreement your eyes have gone blind
And your ears will only hear what they want
Give another treatment but not with the pride
You can push it back but it never gets shut

You get distracted and then you forget
It’s him you called your brother
If you speak the truth you’ll never regret
At least once again you’re together

All these years you’ve been pushing away
But the pain is after you just like your shadow
But I know that it’s only today
That you’ll break this up, it’s not tomorrow
Track Name: Drive
Drive

They took us there for their own pleasure
We were free, we were living in leisure
Who would even care to measure
The cost of chasing the promised treasure

It didn’t even seem to be right
But we all got lost in our pride
Who would dare to look uptight
So we followed didn’t we

Four to the floor in the background
We kept marching through the ground
Noone knew what’s there to find
But we kept going didn’t we

Don’t know how we got the drive
You do when you’re 25
It felt good for a while
And we liked it didn’t we

We can’t deny that it was good fun
But the night will always follow the sun
We got toasted like hot cross buns
But we kept cool didn’t we

They’ve been there before, they knew it
But chose not to reveal the secret
We were to test it once again
And we went for it didn’t we

It all got hectic in the end
We were too tired to pretend
So with a matchstick in our hands
We searched the way out didn’t we
Track Name: Feels Right - Djanan Turan & The Egg
Feels Right

There’s a lot to talk about
But you’re sitting in the corner
And you don’t wanna hear them
Emotions need breathing space
But you tucked them in the basement
And you don’t wanna face it

Its’ not what you say
But the way that you say it that counts
With a twirl in your eyes
Even when you say you love me
You still can break my heart

It’s all about you now
But what about your mistakes
Does your pride always overtake
With a twirl in your eyes even when you say you love me
You still can break my heart

I have, you can
I drift, you stand
Out there, sleep tight
Only when it feels right
I know you can see far
Sleep tight
Your heart won’t fight
Only when it feels right
