Daydream 02:21
When you sleep on my side, you forget the thing you love most. You are a demon in love, waltzing with a ghost. Were you thinking or just daydreaming about your life? Were you singing or just conceiving your first child? Dreams drain your spirit to live your daydream. Dreams drain your spirit. Do they make you feel like.. me? Shake it! Shake it all night long. Shake your dream from your hair. It's your bedtime, my beloved! Send me to the end. Dreams drain your spirit. Do they make you feel like?

All Brain 02:52
Please, test my brain and tell me that her love is over. “Get out and take back your fucking roses and don't ask why”. I try to smile and raise my eyes to the sky. Hear me when I call, where is my loveliness? Oh, oh, oh, it's a critical moment. Oh, oh, oh it's a crucial moment. If there were no dreams how could I sleep. It's breakfast time. Does coffee go bad overnight? I'm afraid of mold. That will be the end of me. Oh, oh, oh, it's a critical moment. Oh, oh, oh it's a crucial moment. If there were no dreams how could I sleep.

White Noise 03:43
Fifty years to go.. I'll say “I know this world. I was here before.” The power of the dead is that we think they see us all the time. They are in the ground asleep and crumbling. Maybe we are what they dream at night. Can you help me? I don't want to see only what the others see. They are taking pictures of taking pictures and they don't care what they felt before.
4.
Pastoral 02:24
I lose my mind every night, I'm always dry at night. Should I take care of my liver or stop dreaming? I love to fly in the dark and find my beauty mark. “Keep your eyes wide open, as a lover”. I've always been shy. I had to walk the line. Show me how to cry. What do you think about the stars in the sky? Why when I close my eyes I live beyond the stream of time and fall in love in your nightmares in daylight. You are acting like the canary in the coal mine. Be the star of my movie, lucid dreamer. I've always been shy. I had to walk the line. C'mon my war is over now you can come closer. I've always been shy. I had to walk the line. Show me how to cry. What do you think about the stars in the sky?

Orphan 01:44
When you will swim forever, you'll know what sound resides in a spiral seashell. You were so cute and clever, you didn't rage against the dying of light. Every lover, every sinner has more secrets than a poem with no destination. I'm dreaming when you're feeling blue, that's the only thing to do. I'm already an orphan. You were so happy in your bridal gown. I am so sappy. I burn your flower crown.
6.
I am built to be kind, my dear.. to be polite from dawn to dusk.. then I try to numb the light. We have been happy for a while. On a misty night you chose up sides hanging up on me. It's hard to leave behind my dream, even if I'm getting older. I'll be still alive if you won't give me the cold shoulder. After all, do you want to know a secret? When you stole the show you didn't realize. It's hard to leave behind my dream, even if I'm getting older. I'll be still alive you can't steal my imagination. You feed my imagination.
7.
Dolphin 02:59
I'll choose the life that is good for me and the habit will make me fine. I know, my home is not the sea. It's only a matter of time. Save your life and don't forget that I, singing little lies I ruined my mind. Maybe there I will rest in peace. How fast will sea levels rise? I will sleep on a willow tree waiting for the flood. Songwriters and coward crows are bending with the wind. If you can't hear the choir who can figure them out? Save your life and don't forget that I, singing little lies I ruined my mind. Oh someday, I will be a dolphin.
8.
Somber Times 03:52
I keep the lid on my world, the rest doesn't matter to me. You dip a sugar cube into my cup watching how it soaks up tea. Silence. No bridges are connecting us. A whistle motif outside. I rip up the bread for the sparrows waiting or dying in the snow. These notes exist scattered somewhere, waiting for the one who will put them in order in the same way, at the same time. I'm waiting to breath your smell of guilt. You start crying, telling me your dirty deed. I won't give up on us, you know. Don't be afraid of these somber times, everything will be alright. I'll blanket you with my red eyes.
9.
I need more time. Will I live my life over again and making the same mistake? I saw a beautiful woman beyond the precipice. How longer will I wait before my lips decay? I must act out passion before I can fall in love. Dreams you know are what you wake up from. Find my passion before I can fall in love. Dreams you know are what you wake up from. Life has no meaning, the moment you lose the illusion of eternity. Anything would be better than this agony. You can't deny it.
10.
The Forest 02:29
I find myself among strangers because I drift here and there trying to feel their passion. I can't live too long with a single dream. Love is the beginning and end of everything. Shake the medicine to mix it. I will take it. Hold my hand, I can't sleep alone. Take me to the forest to the night of my soul. Tender is the night for Fitzgerald. We don't cross the line of betrayal. I ask you to remember when you win and I surrender. Take me to the forest to the night of the soul.
11.
Who am I? Let me lose my shadow and turn off the light. A crocodile is crying for the carols that are gonna die. If I believe my love is still illegal. I'm gonna kill a prey like a seagull. I will not rest or enjoy my time. If I believe my love is still illegal. Maybe I, I should keep me 'clean' for my state of mind. Love is gone. The song is over. I could go on and on. If I believe my love is still illegal. I'm gonna kill a prey like a seagull. I will not rest or enjoy my time. If I believe my love is still illegal. ..and if you disapprove my line of duty, I cannot say “wake up sleeping beauty”. I will not rest or enjoy my time. I cannot say “wake up sleeping beauty”.
12.
Valentine 04:14
I find no peace and all my war is done. I cannot heave my heart into my mouth. I'm only waiting for the night. I don't have to cover my eyes because of the bright light and you don't know what to do when there's nothing to buy. I'm only waiting for the night. “If my Valentine you won't be, I'll hang myself on your Christmas tree”. I saw a mermaid playing in the sea. I couldn't think she was singing to me. I grow old, I can see why are you still sleeping with me!
13.
Restless 03:57
Did you ever wonder why a bird sings? I'm the spirit of this forest, come with me. Don't run through the trees, when you lose your speech. Feed your wild imagination and listen to me: “My only regret in life is never telling you how I felt. Never resist an impulse. Whisper to me tales of horror. We belong to nobody, and nobody belongs to us. Something like eating a bitter orange, the first kiss on a rainy night”. Rest with me, for a while. Rest with me, leave my bed dry. And in death as in life, memories are made of smiles. Draw me that insect, so we can ride him and be six feet under.
