Track Name: Magpie

Forever cursed for taking my precious
forever cursed you'll always be
seven times I do defy thee
seven times, seven times

Oh Magpie
Track Name: Dreamers

On my feet
Living Backwards
Going Sideways
I'm always drifting tattered

Dreaming forward
Aiming Higher
Falling Deeper
To rise a moonlight

Streetlight meetings as poetry lovers
who are fed with candies
'till the acceptance
that nothing, nothing matters
more than sharing
and staring
at your lover

Life to streetlights
Life to loners
Life to climbers
Life to dreamers

God bless the hopeful
God bless the starlights
God bless the skyline
where you found me

and yes you could be my lover.
Yes, you.
Track Name: Thoughts of You

Well when you left
the sun came shinning pale
and time stood still in front of me
waiting for an answer

And all the quietness,
and softness of the raindrops falling
turned gold the trail that stretched ahead
way beyond my dreams

Across the fields of wild green leaves
I thought of You

When you stared at me
I shied away just for a heartbeat
and then I jumped into the sea
that filled the contour of your eyes

The tide was high
and pulled me deep
and me, a tiny speck,
I found my way, way into the dark

Stretching arms and legs my body fell
I thought of You

I was born again
inside a tear you tried to hide away too long
and as I rolled down on your cheeks
I lingered on there

I lingered on there by your lips
and at the soft edge of your chin
I couldn't feel scared no more

I kissed my way along your neck
To shyly slide into your heart
with all my love I went to touch your heart

But you didn't say a word
So what could I understand?
Maybe love takes time
Track Name: Hang On

The way the Sun could touch your skin
soft and warm, the afternoon shyly feets by
leaving away the beach at dusk.

The Sun, the sea
The waves, my ears
My eyes delight, so does the whole of me
Awake in dreams you dream awake
Once more you smile, and when you close your eyes
Magically a cat strolls by.

A peaceful sigh of gold and blue and vapour pink
your dreams are kissed into the breeze

You dream my dreams and we all dance inside the wind
a nightingale stops by your side

to tell the tales
of farewell stars
to make you hang on to the bond

hang on,
to the bond that can't be seen
hang on,
to me,
stay here,
with me.
Track Name: Countdown

There was no chemistry, believe me
Nor even gravity could pull
and emotional understanding
of the plain rules of atraction
between you and me

Nothing pure, but body itching
nothing more than just plain nothing
well, maybe then,
A little bit more

So we could not build that house we dreamt of
those little firework packets selfgnited on our hands

We hoped it'd last a night
but somehow Venus tipped us
with two weeks worth of kisses
stolen from the unbottoned blue jeans
of those lonely broken hearted
bended bones in distressed souls
that we, had become

and that urgency we fucked with
it's been drawn on kneeling bodies
for the days that followed
we collapsed in mental hideaways

before it all exploded
we were really turned on
and then suddenly thrown around

Like an asteroid refused
made with pure shots of abuse
before a mental
before dawn
Track Name: Mankind

Only nature will survive
it will conquer all our dreams
like a huge wave breaking bones
it will crush and flood beliefs

And only nature will survive
cause some people just can't see no sun
seeds to buds and fruits to trees
how could we forgot to feel?

We walk the way to our end
a frantic countdown to the unknown
life clock's ticking up above
and only nature will survive

and you can try to build a shelter
but good results seem so uncertain
fate is knocking at the door
and only nature will survive

Melt the frost in your eyes
the whole wide sky looks at your sleep at night
when the moon's away from the rye
firefies spark our hopeful dreams
and wolves howl victory in the dusk of mankind

Cause this is it.
This is the end of mankind.
Track Name: To love

when I wanted to love
I wanted to love you
but I didn't know how
to love

so I prayed for rain to come,
a rain that would clean me
inside out
mind and soul,
before I'd dive into the sea.

But hearts are made to give
and hearts are made to take
but no no no no no
hearts aren't meant to stay alone

hearts are made to share
life that floods from birth with love
la la la la love
hearts are made to love

blooming flowers fill the sky
as hearts that expand from young to old
but please please don't
don't let your heart grow cold

cause hearts are made of light
hearts are made to kiss
and even trembling hearts that have been hurt
those hearts, too, are made to love
Track Name: Springtime

If you've been told
how this winter will last forever
don't you worry
Let them know
that these cool kids will melt
the snow to water
until those fields will bloom,
for you

Well it's march the 8th
and I'm setting up my birthday party once again
But today the city went silent
You know what? It's snowing again

Everybody's smiling
and it seems the sun is shining
but it is cause no car is moving
and that keeps the good vibe rolling up again
warming up again

But you keep quiet,
For a spring that seems to run away
for a spring that seems that doesn't wanna come
Oh! And it's taking so long

But you keep quiet,
For a spring that seems to run away
for a spring that seems that doesn't wanna come
Oh! And it's taking so long

But don't you worry
let everybody know
that these cool kids will melt the snow

Springtime is here
don't let nobody fool you
Springtime is here.
Track Name: Lullaby

When the big whale goes to sleep
dreams of shrimps and seals to feast on
when the big whale starts to slumber
roams from north to south and east

Now it's not the time to talk for hours
there's no time to play more games
close your eyes and rest the day
for the sunrise will come lightly

When the big whale falls asleep
dreams of shrimps and seals to feast on
when the big whale starts to slumber
roams from north to south and east

I'll be quiet when it all falls silent
when the moon lights up the night
when the big whale starts to dream
with a snore I will be free

To the eternity and the mirror
