Track Name: The Monster Song
There's a monster inside your closet
There's a monster under your bed
Lonely, scared and feeling dread
under the covers you wait instead
for its time to pass
for its time to pass

There's a monster inside your bathtub
There's a monster inside your car
afraid to sink, afraid to fly
you think that you might start to cry
and you wonder what will become
of you

Confronting all the fears you face
before you
All the walls fall down inside
Standing tall in a state of grace
You assume your rightful place
in the world

Is there a monster inside your attic?
Is there a monster in your basement?
Look in the mirror, is that your reflection,
or is it a case of otherworldly dimension,
or could it be a creature that lives
in your head
in your head

Confronting all the fears you face
before you
All the walls fall down inside
Standing tall in a state of grace
You assume your rightful place
in the world
Track Name: Krankshaft
Crankshaft (x8)

Grab ahold of it and wind it up and down
Changing my expression to a smile from a frown
Turning the starter so the motor will catch
and around your body my arms will latch.

Crankshaft (x4)

Feel the piston-pump as you step on the gas
Winding to the wheels the power feels like a bomb blast
Car body rocking back and forth through the night
as you wind the crankshaft at the speed of light.

Crankshaft (x9)
Track Name: Remember
So you step out into the world
leaving your past behind
You put on a mask of iron
cast to protect you, but you're blind
as you travel forward
into the darkest fog
Compass needle spinning
directionless walking the bog

You have to find a river
in order to return to road
yet you march on endlessly
like a soldier whose been bode
on an unknown journey
unprepared and without dissuade
you lost your life so long ago
though you continue your crusade

Do you remember yesterday?
Have you forgotten all the happiness
Of lives gone past
which you left standing in the darkness there
Do you remember what it means
when you say the words I want to hear
they come ringing clear
but otherwise would fall on deaf ears?

So you're now in the open
all unknown at your sides
are you happy where you are
or would you rather be inside
undressed of all your armor
and have the happiness you had
reaching back to the beginning
become a shell of what once was

So you look in the mirror
and revealed to you are your flaws
a reminder of the past
that evoked your anger raw
so then I ask you
what will you do to reconcile
will you bridge the gaps
so one more time I can see your smile...

Do you remember yesterday?
Have you forgotten all the happiness
Of lives gone past
which you left standing in the darkness there
Do you remember what it means
when you say the words I want to hear
they come ringing clear
but otherwise would fall on deaf ears?

Do you remember yesterday?
Have you thrown out all your memories
'long with the keys
to save yourself from some insanity?
Can't you reach into the past
to gather what you need and might have forgot
and from the lot
this negativity which you shall cast?
