Track Name: No I don't need anything
Let me slide right in your arms girl
Let my tongue play on your skin
Let me die right in this bed dove
No I don't need anything

I have found the perfect freedom
I have found the good way out
I will not run the western world's race
I'll beat the clock, by flunking out

I will not feel ashamed or sorry
I will not miss the pots of gold
I won't live up to any challenge
nor will I please market's demands

Should I go piss, or have a burger
should I make love or fuck this girl
I'll roll the dice for my decisions
I'll put my life in numbers' hands

I choose to stink, I choose the hunger
I choose the dirt, cause dirt is real
I choose to live out of my pocket
I choose a freedom, you cannot steal

Let my words be skilled and funny
Let my mind be sharp and swift
Let my dreams be undefeated
No, I don’t need anything
Track Name: Halfway through
There’s a place in my heart that’s always been divided
Between running and staying, breaking off, holding on
Between the truth in my head and the things I can do
Between shaping my world and knowing nothing will change

There’s a place in my head that’s been always distracted
By candy in giftshops and chances I see
By how things make sense in my own brave opinion
And how that just never seems to fit in

There’s a place in my soul that has always felt envy
how your heart does know things that my brain never can
How you carry a load, that would easily crush me
How you give meaning to your everyday life

And how am I supposed to get by now
I tend to quit halfway through
And all of my tasks seem quite easy
Compared to a trip to the moon

They say you’ve found luck, when you are able
To pause for a moment and not feel a void
When right in that second, you know that you’re happy
And when you got someone to share silence with
