about

1. Intro: I find myself longing for something new. Something drives me to walk outside and just keep walking. I end up on a mountain.
2. Universe: On the mountain top I discover the meaning of life, the answer to the universe and attain knowledge of it all. This knowledge is to much for one mind, so it splits in half, leaving me with two heads, two souls.
3. Forever: In the same moment my mind is splitting we get sent into a different universe, an alternate dimension. Here our knowledge has no meaning, the same laws do not apply. Will we be stuck here forever?
4. New Year: We must come to terms with the fact that this alternate universe is now our reality. And it doesn’t look like this is going to change any time soon.
5. The Love: One thousand days have past, we are getting sick of each other. We‘ve been alone this whole time. We don’t even know if there is anybody else out there. It is time to go on a journey, find someone else, find love.
6. Me, Myself and You: We found a kingdom and have fallen in love with the princess. We both have. She shares the same feeling but we can’t share her with each other.
7. Phases: There must be a way to split this body. Turn us into two people so she can make her choice. We take on another journey. After months of searching we find a way.
8. Disconnected: We realise that now we are rivals, going back to her in two separate bodies to find out who she will pick. I never thought that she would pick him, but she did.
9. Far Away: Heart broken I leave the kingdom, if I can’t have her I would rather be alone. The world is spinning.
10. Two of a kind: She soon finds me where i have been hiding. She tells me that she can not chose between us. We are one and the same person and being with one of us is like being with half a person.
11. Over: I go and talk to him. I tell him that she came to me, and that there is no way for any of us to be truly happy, unless we leave this planet, and start a new life somewhere else. He agrees. And we say our goodbyes.
12. Spaceship: Using the knowledge we have from our old universe. We build a spaceship to take us away from here, our minds work best together, one without the other can only think half a thought.
13. Into Nowhere: We take off, not knowing where we will end up, into space, into nowhere.
14. Outro: We float through the universe.

Track Name: Universe
on a journey through my mind
I have come to find
every single star aligned
forced reality takes control
as I look behind the door
I find something more
than there ever was before
now everything is me

I am the universe

now the world is very strange
this unsubtle change
feeling like we are deranged
where are we heading to nowhere
it's the end or it's the start
two minds and one heart
like it's tearing me appart
now everything is us

we are the universe
Track Name: Forever
this is the first day of my life
yesterday was the last
don't believe in anything
everything i know is now a lie

it is the time to be alive
never stay in the past
is ther even anything
everything i know is lost in time

nothing matters
just go on and on
nothing's ever
completely gone

though it doesn't seem that way
i know were gonna live forever
to do the same things over
to do them over again
take my hand
we will stand together
'cause this is never over
never over

this is the first day of my life
yesterday was the last
memories are fictional
and I'm getting tired of this game

there is a future and a now
and then there's nothing more
a routine is so valuable
but it's hard when nothing stays the same

nothing matters
just go on and on
nothing's ever
completely gone

though it doesn't seem that way
i know were gonna live forever
to do the same things over
to do them over again
take my hand
we will stand together
'cause this is never over
never over
Track Name: New Year
I am now and always
for now for days
I find the secret
if I don't seek it
I'll make it through the night
to the other side, the other side
and I'll make it through the night
to see

I was then and never
two birds a feather
two souls one body
we aim to see
we'll make it through the day
another way, another way
we'll make it through the day
to see

this is a moment just in time
but in space it is like we're nowhere to find
live another year
it's the only thing that's ever drawing near

this is a moment just in time
but in space it is like we're nowhere to find
live another year
it's the only thing that's ever drawing near
Track Name: The Love
hours are getting longer
and it's been a thousand days
feel we've been growing stronger
almost every single way
but i can't believe the way that i feel
there are things that always felt so real
when the only one by your side
is yourself you can't deny
there is really nothing left to say
conversations always go one way
as good as any other chance
all that's left is dance

no, I wanna feel the love
you know, I wanna feel the love
no, I wanna feel the love
you know, I wanna feel the love

similar emotions
but its never been the same
would travel every ocean
just to hear you say my name
but i don't know if it is possible
seems my life is never optional
is it a reality
two personalities
and we never really seem to be in sync
why don't think the way i think
neither friend nor foe
can i feel it

no, I wanna feel the love
you know, I wanna feel the love
no, I wanna feel the love
you know, I wanna feel the love
Track Name: Me, Myself And You
you've got to give me the answer baby
I've traveled so far
trying to find someone
and here you are
but I'm getting in the way of myself
I wanna get to know you
I'm gonna be the chosen one
I just have to show you
that I'm the one for you
and you can't have two
'cause I'm the one for you
and you can't have two

who do you wanna kiss
is it me or is it me
who are you gonna miss
is it me or is it me
who do you wanna kiss
is it me or is it me
who are you gonna miss
is it me or is it me

you say you've got lovin' for the both of us
but i know it's a lie
some things are just impossible
so don't even try
wait one minute I get it now
I know what i gotta do
I've got to get rid of myself
in order to be with you
'cause I'm the one for you
and you can't have two
'cause I'm the one for you
and you can't have two

who do you wanna kiss
is it me or is it me
who are you gonna miss
is it me or is it me
who do you wanna kiss
is it me or is it me
who are you gonna miss
is it me or is it me
Track Name: Phases
this is our world now getting through somehow
things are getting real and there are to many feelings to feel
going to find a place disconnecting from ourselves
we have nothing to loose nothing to fear now to find a spell
it's out there somewhere just waiting for us to find
existing in a body that is controlled by one mind
it's a dream it's a lie if it is we'll surely die
searching far searching wide and then far again
I just want to be a man I no longer want to be men
we've been like this to long now gonna do something about it
spending every day together I could surely live without it
I see something in the distance it gives me hope in our heart
could it be the place that finally will tear us apart
it's a dream it's a lie if it is we'll surely die

there are just to many fucking places in the world
so I can't go them all and i won't live them all
but I'll try even if I die so that I can be
with you like all of the time and have you be mine only be mine
just so many fucking people in the world
so I can't met them all no I won't meet them all
that's okay anyway so I'll say you are
more than enough for me just as long as there won't be three of us

okay let's try this out
this is going to work I just know it without a doubt
I can feel it its working
now I'm looking at myself from across the room i feel so good in every cell
then it hits me now we're rivals fighting for the same girl
she's the person for whom we have traveled this world
it's a dream it's a lie if it is we'll surely die

yeah

there are just to many fucking places in the world
so I can't go them all and i won't live them all
but I'll try even if I die so that I can be
with you like all of the time and have you be mine only be mine
just so many fucking people in the world
so I can't met them all no I won't meet them all
that's okay anyway so I'll say you are
more than enough for me just as long as there won't be three of us
Track Name: Disconnected
I feel disconnected but I don't mind
I think I've never felt this fine
frozen in my own state of mind
my darling I come to you
going two directions at a time
now you see who is who
I hope all our wishes will come true
and you will come to see
there has been a lot that I've been through
now there's only one of me

I feel disconnected but I don't mind
I think I've never felt this fine
seems the world is different but I just know
the only thing changed is I

now it's time you have to make a choice
well I'm sorry I don't chose you
listen to me notice my voice
it is what I have to do

I feel disconnected but I don't mind
I think I've never felt this fine
seems the world is different but I just know
the only thing changed is I

I feel disconnected but I don't mind
I think I've never felt this fine
seems the world is different but I just know
the only thing changed is I
Track Name: Far Away
I can't wrap my head around my thoughts
the world is spinning
how can I show you my love
when you're so far away

I wanna go
where I can find you
but how can I show my love
when you're so far away

I can't wrap my head around my thoughts
the world is gone
Track Name: Two Of A Kind
pretty baby what are you doing here
I thought you made yourself very clear
what did you expect me to feel
please don't even try, are you for real

it's not my fault you've got to believe me
I didn't know what else to do
what can I do to just make you see me
you are one, two of a kind

like I told you that will never do
there's not two of me for one of you
please just go away and leave me alone
I have a love you'll never own again

it's not my fault you've got to believe me
I didn't know what else to do
what can I do to just make you see me
you are one, two of a kind
Track Name: Over
we've been blinded by the light
she shines so awfully bright
a diamond in the night
but something happened when
she came to me again
I'm like my only friend

I know what you're thinking
this ship was sinking
but it's over now
we must get out
we have a connection
you're like my reflection
It's over now

it hurts me to say
there is no other way
neither can stay
now I'm opening my eyes
it's time to improvise
we're taking to the skies

I know what you're thinking
this ship was sinking
but it's over now
we must get out
we have a connection
you're like my reflection
it's over now
Track Name: Spaceship
we are building a spaceship
need to get out of here
we don't know if we will come back
just need to get out of here
'cause there's nothing here for me anymore
it's time for lift off
there is nothing here to explore
so let's go

into space
it is time we should go now
different place
then just a little bit further
into space
it is time we should go now
different place
then just a little bit further

we are building a spaceship
half of my mind is now in you
so we work better together
press go, enjoy the view

into space
it is time we should go now
different place
then just a little bit further
into space
it is time we should go now
different place
then just a little bit further
Track Name: Outro
on a journey through my mind
I have come to find
every single star aligned
forced reality takes control
as I look behind the door
I find something more
than there ever was before
now everything is us

we are the universe
