Track Name: So Wrong
Name – like an old affair
Voice – always calm and fair
Face – you just want to share
After dark you can find me everywhere
Lost – in the name of love
Pure – and white as a dove
Hand – always dressed in glove
I don’t think there is something up above
I don’t think I deserve even a bit more…

Why it’s so wrong
Not to belong
I’m not stubborn, but I suffer
I’ll kill them all
I can’t protect
What they neglect
I’m not worried if I’m buried
Before them
True – it is all a mess
But – there is more in less
I can always climb the fence
What I know I just can’t forget, I guess
Once – I used to have ideals
Now, I make disturbing deals
Still – I wander how it feels
To become part of what the world reveals
To admit, proud and loud, that you’ve been fooled for years!

Why it’s so wrong
Not to belong
I’m not stubborn, but I suffer
I’ll kill you all
I can’t protect
What you neglect
I’m not worried if I’m buried
Before you

What have I become?

A charming little scum
I know I am the case
The time will soon erase
Name – like an old…
Voice – always calm….
Face – you just want….
I don’t think there is something up above
To admit, proud and loud, that you’ve been….!

Why it’s so wrong…
Track Name: The Days You Sold
What is your favorite time of the day?
Is it when I’m near or when I’m away?
What is your favorite time of the day?
Mine is the moment when the sky is all grey…
This is my favorite time of the day
When I imagine that you’re here to stay
I have no other way to say this
My life is grey, still the grey I miss
What is the reason for feeling ashamed
Of wanting to leave you, when you want the same?
When is the right time to say “now it’s done”?
Admit that we’re broken and everything’s gone
Afar from my face, apart from my soul
I’ll keep all the memories from the days you sold!
There is no sunlight during the day
Since you and your shadows have stepped in my way
Show me whatever you have in your mind
Maybe there’s still love and I am just blind
I will keep trying to fix your mistakes
I’ve promised you I’ll do whatever it takes
Now it’s the right time that you let me breathe
My days have turned to nightmare, no light I can give….!

Afar from…
Track Name: Fair Trade
Smash the time and you’ll have the perfect rhyme
Draw the line, and your life will be fine
Covered ears caress the soul
Live with fears, and you will miss the tears

Elongate your wall.
After all you can crawl….
Dressed in light the fate is asking from you
To find a sense in willing to live
And let the others make up your mind
With all your senses split apart
Change your goal, and you’ll have a peaceful fall
Move the stone, and you’ll build a blissful home
Be afraid, it’s easy to control

Don’t feel betrayed; it’s supposed to be a fair trade

Elongate your wall….
Track Name: Sinkin' Boat
Next to me there is a man, I thought it would be fun
To grab his hand and put it on my chest….
My heart is beating fast; I will be free at last
But either way I have this yellow vest…
It’s a dream… we may feed the blue sea
And this blue is so deep as he leans against me
And we sail like they sail, like the hundreds of souls
Bleeding into my eyes as I burst…!
My sinkin’ mind
My sinkin’ thoughts
My sinkin’ hope
My sinkin’ life…
My sinkin’ boat!

Years ago I was a child; they taught me to be kind
But they forgot to tell me about the pain
I had my home and friends; now I’ve nothing to caress

All there’s left of me is blood and flesh
It’s a dream… we won’t live though the night
And this God – I believe – he’s not dead, just asleep
I could scream, like they scream, like the hundreds of hands

Holding tight against death as I cry…!
My sinkin’ mind…
Track Name: No Flight Today
I put on my coat, take my pass from the chair
I’m checking my bag… My dreams are still there
Put out all the rubbish. Turn the lights off
A final glimpse… I’ ready to go!
How foolish I was
Wishing to go away?
Can’t meet you babe
‘Cause there’s no flight today
There’s no flight today, there’s no flight today…..
I close the door, take off my shoes.
Your photo is on the table…. I’m losing my muse.
It’s too noisy here, I can’t concentrate.
I just need some time… to accept this fate…

How foolish I was…

I think of you standing, alone at the port
Don’t wait for me, this time it won’t be short
The torch won’t ignite, put down your hand
They’ve run out of promises… in the Promise Land

How foolish I was…
Track Name: The Wolf
Mountain nights
Defining fear

Dreadful sights
Alone this year
Silent breeze
Above his head
The time will freeze
His fateful end
He smells the ground
To feel secure
A lightening strikes with sound
Right now he’s pure!
“In the mud” he thinks
“I feel alive!”
Deep in the existence
Craving for distance
He floats on the water and ice
His feet have grown colder
His mind’s getting older
This is his chance to be wise

His steps were wild. The snow melted beneath his bare feet. He was heading
to this holy tree he had read about; a huge black evergreen that was supposed to
free him of all his fears. He was approaching the limits of his strength but he was
determined to tame the wild nature, make it part of his existence. Two minutes
later, he could almost see the holy tree. But he was almost dead.
Frozen by awe and fear, in front of the most beautiful creature he had ever
seen. Silver white fur and a pair of yellow eyes were standing still, waiting for him to
decide… His veins were filled with blood. He could almost taste it in his mouth…
“Two steps behind and run”…
And suddenly the wolf smiled and its breath felt so warm and calming and
real… No, he wouldn’t run... For the first time he wouldn’t run.
He would stay…. FOR GOOD!
Deep in the existence…
Track Name: Mirror
Come close to see
What could you be?
Don’t be afraid

There is no chance of winning…
I know you’re nothing but me
You show me what I want to see
There’s more than one truth to be said
If not mine, I just move ahead
Don’t try to reject me, my grace will protect me
I know which reflection suits me the best
Your soul is inside me… Then try to hide me
Your fading face will paint all the rest
It’s hard to believe
I’m able to live
Bearing myself
Without their kind approval
But dear, you are touching my glass
It’s obvious that you need a chance
To admit that the image you see
Is probably what you should be
Don’t try to reject me…
Don’t let me down! Don’t let me down!
Weak as I sound, I meant to be free…
Don’t try to reject me, my grace will protect me
I know which reflection suits me the best
Your soul is inside me… don’t try to hide me
My fading face will paint all the rest
Don’t try to reject me… my grace will protect me
Don’t try to reject me… my soul is your soul
Don’t try to reject me… This fading face…
I am the reflection that suits me the best
Track Name: ...To Live Eternally
Her face was pale and marked by melted shadows
Her skin was cold and shivering like an animal’s skin
Her coat was black just like her messy, long, black hair
Her wet, merciless eyes were blue-green

Her boots transferred the icy cold into her bones
Her feet kept running, jumping through the rain
The rain was after her like a curse
Her bare hands were bleeding on her purse
And then she stood and looked around the glowing darkness
The rain had stopped; the wind was whispering things…
Her heart was calm and filled with blind passion
Her brain was strong; her voice was ready to win
I want my song to flounce just like a snake
I want the poison, the wisdom and the cure
It’s not enough to change externally
I want my song to live eternally…!
