Track Name: Towards home
Will I ever face it? - Will I ever make it? - The unraveling puzzle that
I never know - I lost control - Whatever I do plan - It turns into
a no end - Too many variables thrown in my life - Running ‘round,
what’s my role? - I keep searching for it - Look towards home no
matter what she has done - Give her a chance no matter what she’s
done - Find something of worth so you keep moving on - Don’t stop;
let’s fight, for your life goes on - Whenever the sky up above looks
grey - Clouds and wind are your travelling mates - Don’t lose your
way, work hard for it - Wherever you go - Turn your collar to the cold -
Leave your sails and surf the wind - Cry, fly, you can dry the tears
you cried tonight
Track Name: Beautiful
Beautiful - I love these people - I love these crazy people around
me - Nothing is going wrong, hope it’ll last that long - We’re
now living this life - We’re now living always bright - That’s right,
beautiful - And I promise myself joy - And I forget the sad days -
And I’m looking for someone to be with me - Now it’s hard to be
so lonely, I become just me - Nothing else, my spirit doesn’t need
anything - Now I feel that’s right and I am going to fight -
And I promise myself joy - Now I’m promising joy
Track Name: Letters
While I find my way -Straight step on the stairs - In everything
I’ve done - I get my reasons - To make my own way - To go through
it better - Screaming against it - Now you’re in my way - A letter
strongly closed - And mine is closed too - Are we going to open? -
Are the stakes so high? - Why do we throw them away? - Screaming
against it - I hope, this time. - There is a letter - Right there for you -
Is this your letter? - This one is for you - You can do it - But don’t hit
my heart - It might be right - You can do it - But don’t hit my heart -
It might be light
Track Name: This is the last time
More than words - More than you can forget - We have to stop -
And dig out something weird - This is the last time - We know,
you’ve got it, don’t forget - So I will stand, I was born then I’ll die -
The hope in your eyes doesn’t make things go right - This is the last
time - We know, we’re chasing a better place - So I will feel so high
when I’ll die
Track Name: Image
The king of the sky is crying, listen - And I am under his tears -
In my hands - There is a lake now - And I see you - Your eyes
in mine - Why should I die if my heaven is now here by me? -
When will the king stop crying? listen - It’s a wild flash - The clouds
will break - And will open a passage, listen - We will see the sun -
Your eyes in mine - You fill me with joy - You surround me with joy -
If you look at the moon - You’ll then see a star
Track Name: Old stones
I would like to let you know - The more I think of you the less
I know - This crushing feeling that I know - Will never go leave me
at home - The whirlwinds fly above the sky - Our imagination makes
me feel alive - So can you trust me? - Something’s more than me -
So do you trust me? - Something’s more than me - I would like to let
you know - The breeze is crushing in but listen, then go - I’ve learnt
to let the universe feel things we only knew in our bones - And now
I’ve feared I’ve let you go - Sitting down on stones we forgot how
old - What if I could go? - And write it all on stone - But I have
to know - I never thought I’d know - Unless she showed me home -
Unless she wrote it down - Thought I could know - And I‘ll go
and fall - I had to know
Track Name: 14th day
14th day - Here we’re again - How strange, inside the peephole I see
the light - While I see all those people are celebrating it - But I know
that tomorrow will be - Unbelievable - I’ve opened the door - I don’t
want to be seen like them - I have never felt like the others - And
I know that tomorrow will be the same - Let it always be the same -
We have gone over the rainbow - And we’ll go back twice and more -
Let it be the same - I wish I could see into every day’s flow the 14th
day - To say this is my place - Feel the same - Today is yesterday -
And tomorrow’s word will just be my love
Track Name: Sharp
We’re walking in circles on the wire - We try to stay here - The world
is fast - And I’m so far - The daylight begins - The apologies are
blinding my eyes - Our work is to ignore them - Like a knife - Sharp,
I’ll shake - Every moment - All these things - I don’t know why - If I
should fall - I hope to fall on the right way - To be saved - To be alive
Track Name: Strange behaviour
Even letting you have my time - Becomes
difficult in these times - Even letting you
have my life and my soul - Even letting
you have my time - Is annoying and heavy
for my life - I don’t want to see my strange
behaviour - Now it’s starting, my way out -
What are you thinking about? - Let me open
that door - But let me stay on my own - Even
letting you have my dreams - It wouldn’t
help anyone or anything - I don’t wanna trip
over stone by stone now - How can I explain
my strange behaviour - How can you get it,
the absolute truth - How can I explain?
how can I?
Track Name: The riddle
I’m waiting for that place - Try to understand what has spun around -
It’s not a simple thing - It seems that we’re looking for - Any time
I see that light it’s spinning around - We’re enchanted by its sun -
We cannot sit idly by and watch how many things you do - Is it free? -
Or they’ll put me on my knees - The riddle’s in my way - How can I
understand? I’m watching everything you do - Is it free? - Or they’ll
put me on my knees - The riddle’s in my way - For this I’ve racked
my brain - You seem a rebel sunflower, spinning around - She’s
against the sun’s law - Please, let your laws be light for my eyes -
I will be there waiting for something of worth in our lives - Trying
to put me by your side and soothe - What has spun around -
What’s been spinning around
Track Name: The wall, the wheel, the sheet
My hanged nature - That is dangling round - Around, screams
and thumbs down - And a blinding light - That makes my motion
continuous - My spirit flies - Every link; the wall opens every link -
Anything; the light cancels everything - Sammy wants to fly - I would
like for the light to stay with me within six walls - And that someone
from outside thought - Of our crazy and desperate job - The wheel
crushes hard my foot - The sheet crushes my tired head - I know,
I wanna see - He wants to fly
Track Name: Home
Oh light, come down to rescue me - Too much, my feet glued and
fixed here - Some say we have to be thankful for this - I wish for that
place to call my home - I want to wake up with a smile - I want to run
through the beauty of my work saying “I stay here” - Nothing’s right
or wrong - I’m working hard for it, let it come to me - And what
I feel should come to me - Everything is written on letters - Talking
to paper can help us find that hand that will take us towards home
