Track Name: Hopefully
I’m sorry but
I think i feel your feelers turning back
And maybe I keep behaving like this life
Wasn’t even mine
And it takes a while, every time, for me to get back into your eyes

You’re right I should
I really should stop myself
Assaulting you
With all the apologies, with all the fears
And scars that lately I’ve been calling signs
And still I hope your feelers will just
Choose mine

So it’s like this and it’s so real

I’m learning how to figure out
The sounds I wanna hear
I’m learning how to trust myself
And I know, with you
It’s gonna be just fine
Hopefully, hopefully it’s gonna be just fine

So it’s like this and it’s so real
Track Name: Helm
See, when you got some luck
You start feeling guilty
I can see it in your eyes
I see you’re afraid
It all will end
And just go back
To the way it was before

Then take that precious armor
And watch it going straight down
Say goodbye
There’s no more way out now
And you’re just feeling stuck again
Lost in your fears

But it’s not so bad
You just have to find it out that it’s
Not so bad, c’mon, breathe,
Here’s the helm

Take the ship and sail the seas now,
For good
You gotta now what you’re holdin’ in your hands now,
You gotta now what you’re saying
And this time, please,
This time…
Don’t hide

In your world of quotes
I know, it’s hard to find some words yourself
Trusting them
But you surely have a voice
And it’s not just to laugh
But to ask sometimes for help

This time you won’t be again
The one who doesn’t know,
The one who doesn’t care
So keep your head held high
And please, won’t you look back once more
And leave it all behind

But it’s not so bad
You just have to find it out that it’s
Not so bad, c’mon, breathe,
Here’s the helm

Take the ship and sail the seas now,
For good
You gotta now what you’re holdin’ in your hands now,
You gotta now what you’re saying
And this time, please,
This time…
Don’t hide
Track Name: In My Dreams
Last time I turned my head, I didn’t seen you there
Last time I talked to you, I couldn’t touch your hand
I couldn’t squeeze the words that came from your mouth
I couldn’t fight you, and I realized that I didn’t care

So what are you doing in my dreams?
What are you waiting for, why don’t you live?
How’s it that I feel there’s something wrong I did?

I know, you were all alone,
You just couldn’t stand it.
You got so much pain
And some will never be eased
But I get mad wondering why you choose the worst way ever
And I get mad ‘cause I know you could be whatever you wanted to be

So what are you doing in my dreams?
What are you waiting for, why don’t you live?
How’s it that I feel there’s something wrong I did?
Track Name: Roads We Take
Just this evening they let me know you were back
You left not so long ago
But it seems so much to me
I wonder if, when I finally see you
Your eyes are gonna show to me
All the things you left behind

I know that we are growing old
Faster than I can get
So much happened and so much will
I know that we won’t, we just probably won’t take the same road

I guess you started your new revolution
And I bet it took a whole new kind of meaning
Always be careful in all that you’re gonna wish
But wish as much as you can
Just wish and run till you can

I know that we are growing old
Faster than I can get
So much happened and so much will
I know that we won’t, we just probably won’t take the same road
But you know, I’ll always be thinking of you..
..won’t probably just take the same road..
Track Name: Homesick
Don’t know nothing, just
Can’t recall
Can’t remember anything at all
I wake up, don’t even know how long for
I’ve been sleeping, I fell asleep,
Nobody ever warned me
Not that anyone could
And I just turn down the light on me

And now that so much has shapeshifted
And now that so much has gone
Don’t know where I am going
Don’t know where I belong

All in my head, all in my brain
There are thoughts and thoughts and thoughts and chains
I know, I have built them,
and still can’t get rid of them
I’m just tired so I’m turning off
the mike and my scary mind
And I will hear the wind
Again

And now that someone has shapeshifted
And now that someone has gone
Don’t know where I am going
Don’t know where I belong

And I’m so homesick
Gotta find my home
Homesick
Gotta find the road back home
Homesick…..
Track Name: Pavlov
Pavlov gets me everywhere I go
And I still don’t fight it
Every time I see you
Every time I feel I’ve almost got there

Oh, what a shame
What sense of timing

Don’t know why, but with time
I feel like I’ve been always fed him
Even when I beat him
He would wait for me around the corner

As in a dream
As in a nightmare
So what’s the sense,
The use in crying?

Lightness…lightness is honesty
Who’s gonna bear it now?
Who will accept to lay all this burden down
When you’ll have to shrug
Will your backbone stand up by itself
Free at last?
Free at last…

As they say, you have to walk with consciousness to reach your happiness
Step by step the road is full of mirrors
Where it’s not collapsed

I might say the way
Is not quite paved yet

Someone says it’s ‘cause the things that happened
That you’re so so sad
Other says it’s chemistry,
It’s just the common degradation

I might say I’ve been
Once again such naïve…
But the truth is
I’m my worst enemy

Lightness…lightness is honesty
Who’s gonna bear it now?
Who will accept to lay all the burdens down
When you’ll have to shrug
Will your backbone stand up by itself
Free at last?
Free at last…
Track Name: Cassius Clay
Bless and blame your loneliness
Smile with your own tears,
A toast to all we wanted to be
Ain’t the time to judge, ain’t the time to cry,
Time to say goodbye
As the weather in this May
You’re gonna make this day

With a kiss on my forehead
Pain sleeps with you
They’re all ready and we are too
We’re just waiting for you
I can see life dripping away
Every day.

Strung of seeds on your chest
Saints and demons round your wrist
And I tried with my own hands
With every song we sang
Three deep breaths and a neon light
That’s what took you to die
I wish there was relief
I wish it felt like being free

With a kiss on your forehead
Peace sleeps with you
They were all ready and I was too
And I wish it were true
Track Name: All We Had
We were all so desperate
And it was all we had at first
So we started huddling together
And everyone played its part

So the bunch was formed
And the plan was loud and clear
We were all we ever had
Till the last one standing here

We were young
We thought we were in love
And so it was
But that’s not all
Cause we were wrong
Thinking life was endless
And everyone made its choice

So the bunch was formed
And the plan was loud and clear
We were all we ever had
Till the last one standing here
There was no tomorrow
And we were stuck
In this dance of power
We were all we ever had
Till the last one standing here
Track Name: Lonesome Light Blues
Time to sleep, night is silent,
Tears are burning in my eyes
When you hold me in your hands
I still find there’s something left for me

You don’t have to be worried
Yes, you’re hurting me but I’m standing still
Live your life, don’t forget me
Keep me beating alive, keep me safe inside

I won’t be waiting for you
No, I won’t live just for you
Yeah, I know, it’s not what I told you
But I just meant that I love you still

If you think this is just sweet
Try to imagine all that I can’t say
If you think love is hard to speak
Try to wonder what I’m holdin’ back
Time to sleep
Night is falling
Tears are burning
And I just have, have to turn off
I just have to turn off
Turn off the light..
Track Name: The Flow
A deal was buried in the ground
It was made as a spell
Buried so that it won’t be found
Beneath the stonewall defining the fields,
Beneath the one boundary, just deceived.
Over the years the spell obeyed its maker
And played her game
Then months ago raged a flood
Claiming for debts
And you fell while I was watching safe
And now that it’s over
I can’t find a way to take my heart back

The storm is gone
But the flow keeps carrying away
The storm is gone
And now I got nowhere to stay

I see death floating all around
My weakness shakes my bones, wrapped in clothes already drown
I should honor what is gone and what is left
But now that it’s over
I can’t find a way to fight my rage back

The storm is gone, but the flow keeps carrying away
The storm is gone, but these vultures won’t leave my place

I walk through the water, I walk in the mud
And she’s standing right where it all begun
Her heart is a dark frown, her will is a grave
May everyone see now what she became

The storm is gone but the flow keeps carrying away
The storm is gone….
Track Name: Vertigo
When you lay under trees
Looking at the blue sky, don’t you feel
Like you were sucked into the sun
Or through the clouds?
Don’t you think it’s quite like
When you wish something so feasible?
Feasible love, feasible death and all your dreams

Have you ever built roads that could possibly
Lead to you?
Have you ever tried placing some sort
Of warning signs
Along the way?

D’you wish you were alone
Like you were the only one on the earth?
When you just choose to make it worse
Cause you feel coursed
While you complain so hard
About all the things you are
Don’t you feel proud like a boy
Would be in his Halloween fancy dress?

Have you ever fed darkness
With fear and lust?
Have you ever felt lighter
When you’re sure
You just don’t care?
