Track Name: Together We Are
Together we are the wolves of the night
In the moonlight
Track Name: Lee
I know a girl too pretty to this world
She’s gonna force her way thru’
no matter what the world will do
She’s rich in grace with the prettiest face
She’s gonna make the world her own
be sitting on a ruby throne
When her eyes meet yours
you’ll be thrown to golden shores
With love and happiness and ahead of you
Opens the calmest sea whispering that you’re free
Give your troubles to me
You once were part of her
You once knew how to keep her happy
Things that you have tend to lose their shining
Things that you lose forever remind you of their
absence
If I lose my feelings I’ll give your cruelty wings
Set it off to flight and bury my own heart’s light
Track Name: Words And Melodies
I’ve got a friend her name I don’t know
Her face she don’t show
She takes my hand when I fall asleep
She sends me songs and thoughts real deep
Sometimes she uses words mostly melodies
I call her Lydia, oh my Lydia
I believe somewhere she’s wearing her red trunks
And fighting the good fight
I’ve got a friend but her name she won’t tell
Track Name: Cul-de-Sac
Broken souls in an empty room
Another dream of cul-de-sac
Too many endings, too many beginnings
Is this the end or the beginning
Afraid to close this chapter, it could be the last one
Ever
Am I still able to love you
Am I still able to love
Are you still able to love me
Are you still able to...
Feel the cold in the narrow pathways
A northern wind has killed the heat
Stone faces of the dummy siblings
Empty shells of the ones I knew
In the past when I was living, but to be alive again
Ever
Track Name: Psychosis
You’re in New York havin’ the time of your life
Yet there is something you can’t find
People around you acting strange and kind
Strange and kind
You called your doctor ‘cause you can’t sleep
You can’t read or write anymore
And you can not eat
Your thoughts run wild but your body feels weak
Body feels weak
Lately your daydreams they’ve grown so dark
Heavy black shadow has conquered your heart
Seems there’s nothing left of your inner spark
You feel like living under jar made of glass
The thoughts inside your head run vivid and fast
Present reality interferes with future and past
Lately your daydreams they’ve grown so dark
Heavy black shadow has conquered your heart
You only see me when your blinking your eye
You only hear me when you whisper goodbye
You only feel me when you’re touching the sky
You only fear me when the gliders combine
The gliders are coming to you
The gliders are coming through
Track Name: Sunflower Forest
Mother he’s not who you think he is
Wouldn’t you ask us how we are doing for a change
I travelled across the world to find you,
all I found was lies
It seems you made up all those stories
we wanted you to tell
I spent many days thinking of you,
blaming you for ruining my life
But it’s not that plain and simple
that I have a right to feel that way
I spent many days thinking of you,
blamin you for ruining this what I call my life
But it’s not that obvious
that I have a right to feel this way
Track Name: Comrad Stalin
Comrade Stalin had a way
To finish his job in just one day
He called the children out to play
Smiling all the time, that’s what they say
Now he has gone, and you have won
What good is it to you when you’re all alone
Now he has gone and you have won
What good is it to you
Everybody had a friend
To tell them how to save and how to spend
Memory of him still remains
Old moustache man was all fun and games
I remember running up the hill
He taught us how to fight and how to kill
It’s all over, I am bored
Nobody here really cares anymore
Track Name: Violent Calm
Now I know why some are afraid of the dark
Now I know not to lose that inner spark
Now I know stress is the worst thing ever
Now I know not to grow smaller but bigger
Does it matter (it doesn’t matter)
What does it matter (it doesn’t matter)
And you said you fell in love
with a saxophone girl, aww
Now I know not to cause any more trouble
Now I know how it feels
when your heads a soap bubble
Now I know how it feels not to give a shit
Now I know it’s not wise thing to hit
And you said you fell in love
with a saxophone girl
So you said
Now I know not to drink too much alcohol
(I think I know)
Now I know I can’t be no frigging doll
Now I know I don’t know anything at all
(I think I know)
Now I know I could still try to have that ball
So you said you fell in love
with a saxophone girl
And you said you fell in love
with a saxophone girl
That’s what you said
Track Name: Rags And Pieces
Rags and pieces on the floor
ready to take a new form
Don’t inherit all you see,
I’ll make sure that you won’t
So you’re dead my dear, you weren’t afraid to go
I wish I could take your hand in mine
And walk towards a beautiful landscape
That night of terribleness
The dead man whispered
He seems to sing to me, comfortingly
Green trees surround us
No water anywhere near us
For that night of terribleness
The dead man whispered
He seems to sing to me, comfortingly
Those young men who disappear in the water
I’m not ready to let you go
Those young men who disappear in the water
I’m not ready to let you go out of my sight
Track Name: Birthmark
Flash in the moment but you never could tell
‘Cause where I rise up is the place where you fell
I’ll carry you over the troubling sea
A soul too weak to give your cure to me
Many pass me by with empty look in their eyes
Too busy struggling with their own demise
My hidden burden is a thousand times more
Than what their fragile hearts are suffering for
You... knew... too...
You break so easily
But not as easy as me
‘Cause time could never heal
A birthmark
They used to worship me as their stainless king
Who took their souls under the blackened wing
They never saw what I will show you tonight
Eternal secret scar that’s burning inside
Your time to join me in this hideous dance
All I can give you is a withered romance
Please welcome to the hurricane of souls
Rush in, cry out and feel the deadly blow
Time to kill the weak of will
Time to die for the flame inside
Time to choose not to loose
Time to destroy the birthmark
Track Name: Chantelle
Chantelle ran across the woods
Passed quietly the blackened lake
Came at my house, opened the door
Placed herself there right next to me
As I saw her there with her pretty being
I remembered all the childhood years
Of you and me, Chantelle
Chantelle you’re my darling
You will take me back to those childhood years
Of you and me, Chantelle
Where are you now?
Oh, Chantelle
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Chantelle!
Track Name: Jewel Elephant
The color of truth
Years gone by and
The time that was on our hands
Then was full of jewels
& full of gems & little ants
Spiders
We didn’t see it
Like we can see it now
And like trust
We rely on the future
We still try to get our silver lines
& our golden clouds
& our golden mouths
With golden precious stones
Full of words & songs
& songs about words
I love & I know
& I know
That I love
The smell
That you smelled was autumn
The smell is in 1984
1985 and six seven eight
& years between
& all that time after
All pretty smell of autumn
Maple-leaves
Each color
Glued
On the paper
& the song about the jewel elephant
Pick leaf by leaf
To be put on the wall
Like a remembrance of these days
Track Name: Wolves Of The Night
We’re the travellers in time,
together we hold the keys of the light
We made the rules of the silver planets,
we built the burning sun with our hands
We showered in the star falls,
we squinted our eyes thru’ the darkness
To look very hard how the thousands of millions of
stars in the distance dance and spark
Together we are the wolves of the night
In the moonlight
Melt together as one
We held the match to light the candle
The candle to light the milky way
We rode the golden comets thru’ the forsaken aeons
We held the cosmic balance thru’ the centuries
We paved the path from
Mercury to Orion with asteroids
The purple sky will shelter
the gates of the misty paradise
All the stars we shot became shooting stars
Rings of Saturn turned into our rings of love eternal
