Track Name: Shelter
Walking with you in your forest
Foggy forest of your mind
Sleeping with you in a warm shelter
In the shelter of your heart

Writing on the black sheets of night sky
Husky story of our talks
Looking for unknown future
Somwhere else on the sleepy Earth

Dive into the sea of me, of my mind
Sleep on the sandy bed of my soul
Breathe like you are only my wierd fish
Swim as deep as you can as you wish

Swimming with me in my mind sea
In my underwater caves
Look through my eyes to the daylight
See your own suprised face

See in my eyes foggy forest
Foggy forest of your mind
See my shadow near the plane tree
I`m waiting to be found

Dive into the sea of me, of my mind
Sleep on the sandy bed of my soul
Breathe like you are only my wierd fish
Swim as deep as you can as you wish
Track Name: Sweet Girl
Oh, one day you want to try a new role
Oh, one night you want to play the game
Stoned mermaid sinks in the pool
Pull her out and grab her to your cave

With her
Wet hair
Wet lips
Sweet lips
Sweet girl

Oh, hold her near you with strong ropes
Oh, keep her in submission with a whip
Leave grazes on her skin instead of rose
My sweet heart, you’d better bite your lip

Your sweet lips
Wet lips
Sweet lips
Sweet girl
Track Name: Road And Snow
I see the road and snow
I feel cold wind and how are you?
What is about you?

I pick my wet collar up
I dream about you, heart
Where is your heart?

Hey, look at me, my heart
Why your eyes are so sad?
Why your soul is so dark?
What you have not told me yet?
Track Name: On The Wane
If you look for something stupid to do
I don`t mind to give some advices to you
Seven miles beneath the burning sun
As seven sins that you`ve done

Boiling midnights on the flashing wane
Have exhausted holy killing pain
Praying kids with the smoking bombs
Drove me insane

If you wanna go - i`m with you
If you wanna see - I`ll show you
If you wanna know - I`ll tell you
If you wanna die - I`LL KILL YOU
Track Name: Phoenix
What do you feel except of sticky fear?
What can you do when you are paralyzed?
Inhale, exhale, I am here
Inhale, exhale, don't close your eyes

No one was born to be a warrior
But phoenix burns again in a frontline fire
Turns into flame to return to home
Burns in a flame for his plain desire

Listen for wind waiting for new signs
Peer into the cycle of timeless river
Inhale, exhale, don't close your eyes
Inhale, exhale, I am here
Track Name: 1232
Every fucked up night I call my twisted operator 1232
He is not picking up cell phone persuades me to call later
Straight-forward to
Hell might be down the lane but way more likely is behind me
Well into the wane what I am running from what is just inside me
Straight forward to

Want to make it work but it always breaks
Can you tell me how many attempts does it take?
To detach me from the strings that I am attached why?
Lie lie lie lie lie

Truth or lie

Make peace with your past so it does not spoil your present
What what what
What others think of you is frankly no one of your business
Well and me too
I know that elders do criticize our generation
Quite funny cause
they forget forget forget that they have raised us
straight forward cause
Track Name: Love Thy Neighbour
When you hear someone is knocking in your door you'd better
Load up your guns and prepare a blade
You know that there is no forbidden weapon
When a neighbour comes to kick in your gates

So here you stand in battlefield of your kitchen
Wiping blood off your knife
You know this makes a welcome tradition
Loving your neighbour means an open strife

Track Name: Autumn
We must be at home before
The night coveres the street.
See, falling red leaves
Are already near your feet.

Leave all of your thoughts,
Hurry to cross the gloaming park.
It was the last lazy day.
We all must go to the dark.

Where is all that you love?
Where is all that you met
In that summerly day,
In this last sunset?

We've got used to heat.
We've got used to light.
But now all is in the past.
We must be faster than night.

We could reach our home.
We've almost escaped the fear.
But it's too late.
Autumn is already here.
Track Name: Louder
Screaming louder
Keep at top of your lungs and love shall stand right behind you
Remember - you are braver than you think and stronger than you may seem
Be fearless - learn to recognize not real from things that truly surround you
And grab love - as she is the only one
Just grab love and run

Just grab and run,
Grab and run

..Cause love is the only thing you lose
I tell you - change your thoughts and you will change the world like you always wanna do
Jump higher, don't be afraid to reach the stars, as they are not yours to be reached
Don't give up, cause there is a crack in wall
That stands behind your dream

Jump higher
Jump higher
Track Name: Noise Ceremony (Joy Division cover)
This is why events unnerve me
They find it all a different story
Notice whom for wheels are turning
Turn again and turn towards this time
All she ask's the strength to hold me
Then again the same old story
Word will travel, oh so quickly
Travel first and lean towards this time

Oh, I'll break them down, no mercy shown
Heaven knows, it's got to be this time
Watching her, these things she said
The times she cried
Too frail to wake this time

Oh, I'll break them down, no mercy shown
Heaven knows, it's got to be this time
Avenues all lined with trees
Picture me and then you start watching
Watching forever, forever
Watching love grow, forever
Letting me know, forever
