Track Name: The Nights We Won't Forget (Acoustic)
And here's to you, my friends
This night is ours
Let's have a drink or ten
And sit down on the porch

Hey did they play your favourite songs
And each and everyone could sing along
These songs that made our youth just feel complete

This is a cheer to the nights we won’t forget
Just take your time and have a drink, these nights will last
This is a cheer to the girls we won’t forget
The ones we loved, the ones we had

We wont forget

Let’s take a look at the sun
Watch her rising till her setting
Burn her light down the shore
Glittered, golden reddish flames

Won’t waste our time, jump in the van
Our mamas never know which way we’ll take
Come on, the road that leads us to nowhere

Now I try to remember
All the things we had
We would never surrender
To their stupid plans

You can count on me
Can I count on you
Track Name: Turtle Fight (Acoustic)
Quiet, you sneak out of your house this morning
And then I know all your secret hide outs

You are trying to escape the pressure in your head
But in the end you will collapse

I'm taking that last train, back to you, I'm on my way.
Nothing makes me stay here, I need to push you
On your fucking back so you can reconstruct what you have torn apart
This is a turtle fight and I won't faint

Navy blue you highlight every single
"Save me" written in your diary

You are trying to escape the pressure in your head
I will save you before you collapse
Track Name: Thursday Blues (Acoustic)
New, new colour, dim light shines upon the streets
I, I am a shadow, picking flowers from the fields
Lightning slowly creeping through my lungs
Left my body at the tip of my tongue
Track Name: Beelzebub (Acoustic)
Tried it again
Adamcos on my mind
Nothing works
Oh brother can you help me
Trapped, a prisoner of time
Here and now
I’m not where I should be

Show me your ghosts
Scare me down to the bone
Here in my castle
Here is my throne

Traveller through time and space
Hoping for the spirit’s grace
Let me fly, let me fly
