Track Name: Falling like a stone
Say no more to me,
don’t wake me from my sleep.
Before I'll meet the storm,
before I'll find the way back home.
And I need truth.
I need to be amused,
in every way, I'm falling like a stone.
Then I start to think of all the things
I owe you my love.
You keep on shine through me.
You keep it long.
Little bit longer then you need.
Don’t do me wrong
I try to fit myself.
To get along,
but im falling like a stone.
And my footprints are
fading slow.
But I'm all right now,
I can see the world.
No more demons beside me.
But I'm all right now,
when it comes to the end.
There's more then one way out of this.
But there's no way to know
how to conceal your deepest hunger of all.
You fool around
when you pretend to be
the happy one.
But you're falling like a stone.
And you're footprints are fading slow.
But I'm all right now,
I can see the world.
No more demons beside me.
But I'm all right now,
when it comes to the end.
Track Name: State of mind
I've been worried about you baby
soon I know you will be gone.
And I've been calling you for many times before you hit the ground.
You're not afraid of choosing anything,
you're not afraid to try.
Within a blink you lose direction you are nowhere to be found.
When you change yourself in time, are you well enough to rise?
Will you make my feelings comfortable this time?
But I must tell you now,
you have a beautiful state of mind.
And I must tell you now baby,
you have a beautiful state of mind.

And you must follow what your heart says otherwise you will be wrong.
Some people tell you not to mention this confusion going on.
I'm not telling you more secrets I'm not planning to go on.
For this admire makes me happy but I really don’t belong.
I could promise you my life,
but it seems like I don’t care too much for them.
And I would give you shelter but I have no blame.
But I must tell you now,
you have a beautiful state of mind.
And I must tell you now baby,
you have a beautiful state of mind.

There's nothing much for me to give you but I'll give it all away.
And I could close my eyes and hear your little prayers are blown away.
And in the coolness of the night you place another wish for me.
But what’s the point of making wishes when they have no place to be.
Are you listening to me now?
I've decided not to call you back again.
And I would rather sink here before you go insane.
But I must tell you now,
you have a beautiful state of mind.
And I must tell you now baby,
you have a beautiful state of mind.
Track Name: Blue birds
Blue birds are flying on the ground.
Make no sense when you're down.
Take no place when the sun's shining on your face.
True words are never to be said.
You'd rather put a smile instead.
Just before your brain is fed with a foolish thought again.

Blue birds have no wings at all it's not the reason why they fall
from the sky when you crawl.
And there is nothing you can do for all the birds you see.
Place them on the tallest tree.
Take a step back to be free.

Walk away butterfly, sailing over seas far away.
Walk away pretty fly, floating in the deep far away.

Blue birds are always on the run.
Have no meaning have no fun.
From the morning until the dawn in search of shelter.
Maybe I can save them all, some of them will surely roll
when the wind will start to blow.

Walk away butterfly sailing over seas far away.
Walk away pretty fly floating in the deep far away.
Track Name: Does anyone know
Does anyone know
where everyone goes,
where everyone's running.
I will run
for you.
I'm gonna do my time,
I'm gonna face the crime,
of you.

There's so many ways
for so many days
and I couldn't reach you.
Where the hell
are you?
I wanna make it right,
I wanna stay in sight,
of you.

Whenever you show,
like river that flows,
I'm suddenly living.
And I would die
for you.
I’m looking for your trace,
but you keep changing the place.
Oh you.

The music you play,
the word that you say,
is all that I'm hearing,
but I couldn’t play
your tunes.
I wish I had no fear
to look when you are near.
Near me.

Does anyone dare
to say he will share
the life here without you?
Could you see
through me?
I'm longing for your vows,
I'm longing for your house.
Oh you.

Oh you.
Oh you.
Track Name: Drained
You have been drained,
you don’t think right,
you Keep running with them.
So I call you once again
but you don’t see.
I’m not sure I intend to act according
to your plans again,
Not before the rain.

And what if you'll get lonely?
I should have told you more
but I couldn’t hold the frame.
I've never heard you calling
and I couldn’t find the door

You have a mean brain.
You don’t speak right
but you keep calling their names .
And the bigger it gets
the less you see.
The rest of this emotion is just a substitute for your beliefs.
For your oldest grief.

And what if you'll get lonely?
I should have told you more
but I couldn’t hold the frame.
I've never heard you calling
and I couldn’t find the door.

You have seen
Fame.
you must be right
for all this will pay.
I’ll give you everything.
I’ll kill your pain.
I'm not sure I intend to act according to your plans again.
Not before the rain.

And what if you'll get lonely?
I should have told you more
but I couldn’t hold the frame.
I've never heard you calling
and I couldn’t find the door.
Track Name: Forgiveness for this day
For night and day
your light is on
according to faith.
Face, face with me today
moment is all I’ve been given.

You’re in and out
the same old route
according to faith.
Make place for me to stay
or I'm running out
of air.

Do you see any sunshine on the way?
Do you feel the pain
when you get away?
Praise yourself from beginning.
For your dreams were bigger than your hopes
and love was nothing but a minor prop.
So would you care for forgiveness?
Forgiveness from this day.

And so it goes
you waste your time
yet nothing has changed.
Stay here with me today
cos nobody sees what I'm seeing.
There's so much more
for you to do
according to faith.
Play fair with me today
or I'm running out…

Oh baby your confusion is deeper than the underground.
Slow baby don’t you worry I’ll be on the watch.
No baby don’t you hurry
no one's gonna lead you wrong.
Hey baby no more tears for you
no more songs.

Do you see any sunshine on the way?
Do you feel the pain
When you get away?
Praise yourself from beginning.
For your dreams were bigger than your hopes
and love was nothing but a minor prop.
So would you care for forgiveness?
Forgiveness from this day.

Track Name: Hear me
Don't stay out too long boy.
The sun is setting down and soon
you will find the way
to hear me.

Make sure your mind is clear
as you disappear.
Will you come inside?
Would you like a bite
of me?

How can I help you?
How can I make you see?
You are not allowed
to break me.
Maybe I’ve lost too fast
but I'm not the last.
Get ready
to feel me.

I can’t face this
doubt I'm feeling.
When did I lose my side?
Tell me
how to pray.
Is there a chance to stay
so close
around you?

Now everything's changing.
What if it will be too soon
to illuminate me,
to heal me.
I'm running to see this light
But I just can’t fight.
Can I take your hand?
Can I reach the end?
Oh

I'm tired of sleeping,
the sound of my dream is rough.
And I need some rest
believe me /
Now that I’ve grown so strong,
it won’t take you long,
to see me,
to fear me.

I can’t face this
doubt I'm feeling.
When did I lose my side?
Tell me,
how to pray,
is there a chance to stay
so close
around you?
Track Name: The shade
The shade of your heart is still standing when you fall
and you are all as good as gone.
How can I keep my anger calm, I don’t know.
Stand back,
I'll be the one to break the law.
How can I keep myself controlled?
I don’t know.

So when you're up against the wall,
you look at this babe,
look at this.
As if you have been now reborn,
just set yourself and smile.

Keep nourishing yourself with great amount of fever.
Don’t be sad,
don’t be mad at him.
He’s nothing but a leaf

It’s the shade of your heart now I wonder where it goes
and I thought I've seen it all.
Some of these visions will hunt you for so long.
Let me out
I'll be the one to break your walls.
As vicious as I can be I'll be so you'll glow.

Somehow I know,
I’ll make you see,
I'll help you walk,
I'll make you speak,
and I’ll set you free.

So when you're up against the wall
you look at this babe
look at this.
As if you have been now reborn
just set yourself and smile.

Keep nourishing yourself with great amount of fever.
Don’t be sad,
Don’t be mad at him.
He is nothing but a leaf.
Track Name: No one
In his mind
too many things he sees.
He never wonders why he's waiting.
He don’t know this winter never goes,
he don’t believe he knows
what's coming tonight.
He will be no one.

Did you feel
the moving of the ground,
the way it comes around?
Around you.

Did you know
if it was for real?
Or was it just a drill
who led you.
But this time,
you’re out of place and you're fine,
you’re thrown to stage,
but you don’t know why.

But you will be no one.
You will be no one again.
You will be no one.
Wait ‘till you're dry.
And you will be no one.
You will be no one again.
You're like a dream.
Track Name: Home
Home,
I’m going home.
No call.
But the garden still remains the same.
Colors never change,
but we've changed a little bit.
Strangers everywhere,
waving,
with a very strange look on their faces.
I couldn't raise my hand,
to wave back.
I’m going home.
Track Name: Stay where you are
Stay where you are when you're done.
Make some noise all over you.
Run
through this forest in this blur.
Finally dear you're through.
It comes out more then you are wishing for.
You don't mind get out of here.
You give it all.
Clean you're dusty face,
clean you're hands of failure.
You dream on
lean your head
you're through.
Track Name: So
So,
do you think I can get some of this life?
Some day this will all be mine.
Some day…
I'm letting it go away,
I refuse to admit all this fortune.
I'm telling myself to wake up.
Wake up.
You’ve got to move yourself…
