Track Name: Wild Flower
Street lights are fading
like nightmares left open.
Sunrise comes clumsy,
moonlight heading nowhere.

Girl looks at the mirror
with questioning eyes.
Things will get clearer
with years passing by.

Her eyes are a wind
Of blue and shy springs.
Her eyes claim to seek
What no-one can see.

Stronger than thunders
and prouder than oceans.
Looking for freedom to feel
Within.

Hadn't learnt how to walk,
already wanted to run.
Wild flowers
early aim at the sun.

Girl looks at the mirror
with questioning eyes.
Things will get clearer
with years passing by.

Stronger than thunders
and prouder than oceans.
Looking for freedom to feel
Within.
Track Name: Sometimes
Sometimes I think
This world is insane.
They say that time
Runs as fast as this train.

Wish I were a wind to feel the sky.

I've been walking on
The edge of this brain.
I've got room for fun
And I've got room for pain.

But I can't wear the chains you gave me.

Think fast,
Think less.

Wish I wear a wind to feel the sky.

Sometimes I think
About the rules of your game.
I'm not good enough
No, I can't play.
Track Name: Houdini
Chains are not what you expect them to be.
I looked for the truth to set me free.
Chains are not what you expect them to be.
I looked for the truth to set you free, my love.

Years go by like a prophet in songs,
they shake your hand and say "don't let us go".
My body, my mind they can play tricks sometimes
but I'm a free man, in a world of disguise.

Take my word and believe what you see.
I am no pretender and I never surrender.
Take my word and believe what you feel.
I am no pretender, I am no pretender.

Some people are born with a thorn in their side.
They shake their heads and say: "You won't stay alive".
Some people are born with a hole in their soul.
They look at you and you let it go.

Love's a cure, more often a pain,
but I can't get enough of this summer rain.
These chains are breaking but this heart's made of ice
and I cannot look into your eyes.

Take my word and believe what you see.
I am no pretender and I never surrender.
Take my word and believe what you feel.
I am no pretender, I am no pretender.
Track Name: Something To Say
What you see is what you are
What you dream is what you'll be
Or so you hope, so you think.
Ain't that true?

All the time you've been around
And you have looked right through this glass,
Have you ever wondered:
Is this real?

You pray your God,
You pray your soul, you pray your life
For a chance, for a peek through this cage.

You shake at night,
Your hands ain't free, you try to hold on but you hear
The restless crowd screaming: "I've got something to say".

And if they only could shut up
You'd put a trademark on your shyness,
leave for somewhere quieter,
Or not?

The sky is open, the sky is wide
But there is something you can't hide:
There's no challenge you could throw
At the sun.

You pray your God,
You pray your soul, you pray your life
For a chance, for a peek through this cage.

You shake at night,
Your hands ain't free, you try to hold on but you hear
The restless crowd screaming: "You must have something to say".

And if they only could shut up
You'd let them know their cage is locked
And as for yours, the key is
In your hands

What you see is what you are
What you dream is what you'll be
Or so you hope, so you think.
Ain't that true?
Track Name: Night Of Light
Time was flowing down in your hands
While the rain was beating hard on the window.
It had to be a chance,
it had to be youth.

Lonely fire, you come and you go
While I'm missing this heavenly feeling.
You should be here,
you should be here.

Night of light, take us away
Where the happiness is real,
where we can rest.

Night of light, take us away
Where we can scream and shout
And care.

Where are what we have chosen to be.

Lonely sky and thousands hearts beating
let me hear the sound of your thunders
You could have all of it
You could have all

Thousands ships and thousands dead oceans
let me hear the sirens sing.
I could be there
I could be there

Night of light, take us away
Where the happiness is real,
where we can rest.

Night of light, take us away
Where we can scream and shout
And care.

Where are what we have chosen to be.
Track Name: You and I
You and I,
Lost in the wind.
We’re sailing through
A new world.

This emptiness will go
And we'll be ready
To face everything.

This time I know
We won't let us down.

Life has no edge.
Has love some pride?

Lost in the mind,
You and I.
We're reaching for
The sun.

Remember, lives ago
When life was hard,
How cruel it could be?

This time I know
I won't let us down.

My love has no edge,
my love has no fear.

You and I,
Lost in the wind.
We're sailing through
Our new world.
Track Name: A Letter
Words are enough for me,
words can set you free.
Believe this sad wing:
stars aren't a dream.

I've looked into your eyes
more than into mine.
I believe this time
you will be fine.

Our brother has gone to war,
Our brother won't come home.
But I hope you'll smile
even in this time.

Please, don't say it's over
we have to grow older
before the end of time,
before another crime.

Now I kiss you, sister
write me before Easter,
I miss you like before.
Soon I'll be home.
Track Name: Plastic
Monday night in the city.
New neighborhood,
This place's so good.

Flaming brand new costly cars
And decor jars,
Like they're from Mars.

Will you dare to look through
These hearts of glass?

"Crime rate increased overall,
But we won't know
'Cause we built a wall."

"Trains are close but we put a glass,
So we won't hear
The strangers pass."

"We like newcomers, but no here.
You know, this ain't their kind of street."

Silver spoons and silver talks,
"This ain't no good,
And that's unjust."

Silver glass and silver wine,
for silver brains
and silver pride.

Look closer now, this is fantastic:
but this spoon is made of plastic.

"Music, music, it's all so good.
So good to hear
You made it through."

"Your age is fine but what will you get?
It's time to think
About another plan."

A plan to earn what I will spend
In costly cars and costly brands.
My chance to lay on a plastic strand.
Track Name: Dead End
I don't know where I am.
There's a dead end
And I can't breath.
But I won't look back.
Oh, this rain won't stop.
Track Name: Tied Down
Sometimes you rest your head and let the day flow.
Someone's been harsh or cold,
Someone run out that door.

You still keep wondering, as the day flows,
If you are right or wrong,
Although you'll never know.

I won't look up to see
The horizon tied down like my dreams.
There is a way to free them
And a way to free myself.

Well, I've asked myself sometimes
If there's anything new to say.
I know that I can fight,
and I know sometimes I'm prey.

What you know is what they taught you.
You think they taught you good,
But in truth you couldn't choose.

When you get that urge for a new world,
You think it may be good,
You're just scared of what you can lose.

I won't look up to see
The horizon tied down like my dreams.
There is a way to free them
And a way to free myself.
