Track Name: Come On
Have you ever heard of the idiot?
How he couldn’t survive
All this evil in mankind
Listen to the cyclone
Better cut through the woods
Come on / your brother wants to fight
Come on / your brother’s angry now
Come on / there’s evil in his eyes
Watch out / your brother wants to fight
Mind your own business said brother James
One word to anyone and I’ll wring your neck
But you didn’t care and you dated the girl
She told you a secret it raised the hell down there
Watch out / your brother wants to fight
Come on / he’s so out of his mind
Hey boy / your brother wants to fight
Look out / there’s evil in his eyes
The dreams of men, the germs of empire
The dreams of men, the germs of empire
Men enough to face the darkness
Flies buzzing in a great peace
When suddenly it raised the hell down there
Come on / your brother wants to fight
Come on / your brother’s angry now
Look out / there’s evil in his eyes
Did you see the evil in his eyes?
All the evil of mankind he has
All the evil of mankind he has
All the evil of mankind he has
And you won’t cut through the woods anymore
Track Name: Always picking up the wrong horse
I got a word on the tip of the tongue Soon it will come out
I got a word on the tip of the tongue Soon I will shout it out
So much to do in so little time you take my hand
So much to do in so little time you take my breath away
I lost myself in a thousand undergrounds
I’m not gonna live long but I’m gonna live fast
Little stones on your way, those feverish songs you like so much
They’ll put knots in your stomach and pleasure you deep inside
Your cruelty is brimming with colours the little shakes don’t hurt you
Your cruelty is brimming with colours I saw this boy around you
Always picking up the wrong horse I wish you didn’t have those bruises
Always picking up the wrong horse I wish you didn’t like them at all
I lost myself in a thousand undergrounds
I’m not gonna live long but I’m gonna live fast
Little stones on your way, these feverish songs you like so much
They’ll put knots in your stomach and pleasure you deep inside
I got a word on the tip of the tongue
I got a word on the tip of the tongue
Track Name: Your heart is bigger than your head
That’s fun dancing near the edge when joy pumps out of your body free
I shake my fists to the clouds and open a gate from her mind to her heart
She says “the dreams are the first to go” and her eyes become two burning embers
A sudden smile disarms her; the old sun is amused by such a spectacle
Your heart is bigger than your head
Your heart is bigger than your head
Your heart is bigger than your head
Tracing the course of that year in details, she does not pay attention
To the colorful enchanted bird resting on the windowsill
She yearns over her ex boyfriend, confessing he is the love of her life
He left her without an argument, she says “look up, It’s all gonna break”
With every yard her mind is changing, she feels an odd task for adversity
Confusion in her eyes says it all, she wanna escape, but she cannot
To the attack to the assault of every form of dependence
To the attack to the assault of every kind of pain
Your heart is bigger than your head
Your heart is bigger than your head
Your heart is bigger than your head
Voices singing together, voices in harmony
Voices of the midnight choir, voices broken by sorrow
“I’m gonna be there to help you get up if you fall”, “I’m gonna be there when you call”
Come with a whoop and come with a call
Up the ladder and down the wall
Clap your hands, stomp your feet, say “hurray”
You’re alone in your bed and your prince is far away
Your heart is bigger than your head
Your heart is bigger than your head
Going out of your skin, living in the real world
You won’t correct all of the wrongs
No basis to know how to live, you’re lost
For the promises you made, you’re hurt
But your love gives meaning to the indifferent universe
So you keep trying, keep trying and find joy
Keep trying, keep trying and find joy
Your heart says one thing your head another and the hook is so strong
I feel I can be close to you baby
Track Name: Your Woman Grace
Tears well up in her eyes
Tears well up in her eyes
She’s like a butterfly falling from a flower
Who the devil am I?
I can’t tell the three words
I don’t know man but these STRONG CURRENTS
They crack the dyke
They crack the dyke
In the fast lane I stumble
It brings the heat down on me
Pretty baby I’m playing new roles
And my sanity is hanging by a thread
Beauty’s ravaging always
It brings the heat down on me
Will I lose myself first before losing you?
Traces, signs, shadows
Our love is like flying blind...
I hold you as I please / you hold me as you please
I hold you as I please / you hold me as you please
I, I / You, You
Hey ho, Howl not and
Howl! Howl! Howl!
Howl the speaker down…
Elevate me, elevate me
Your woman grace
Your woman grace
Is like a butterfly chewing my will
Fire in my brain all life through
It’s scraping inside, itching inside
You the block of stone / you the ecstasy / you the you
I’m lost and happy
This invincible defeat, babe, I can’t switch it off
Track Name: How far we can go
One day you’ll become a machine and rule down the fucking game
You’ll greet the restless poison that is streaming in the blood of a king
Your vision’s your best friend
You dig a hole in the furnace
Escape from burden A to burden O
Hey ho here you go
There’s no telling how far you can go
You want to live that glorious day
True as steel and good as gold
You want to know the magic word
And then steal through the gate
She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes
She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes
She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes
She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes
When the whip comes down
In the cold light of a full moon
Yeah when the whip comes down
I know what’s inside your head
It’s like a nice butchery
She says “throw your weapons down, take away your sorrow and come to this song
There are plenty of good things here, things that are good for you”
Yes it’s bright in that room, so, easy on the pain!
Take your shoes off and dance your anger on this floor
There’s nothing in the dark that wasn’t there when the lights were on
This road is all paved with stars
and there’s no telling how far… you can go
I was there when your heart first opened
I swear
In the darkening night sweet tears you cry
In the darkening night sweet tears you cry
In the darkening night sweet tears you cry
In the darkening night sweet talker you cry
Take your shoes off and dance your anger on this floor
Dance it yeah!
How long can you hate yourself for the weakness you conceal?
Track Name: Prisoner of love
You broke chains for other chains
You made yourself a prisoner of love
Emotional decisions from your generous big heart
You want to keep the men you were with
Because they’re “all so great”
And you want to be a somebody
And go far, very, very far
Why the land of your dreams would not be reality?
Why the land of your dreams wouldn’t be reality?
In the house of the living the mood is so cold sometimes
The hours of darkness are the weakness you concede
On the jagged peaks of your heart tell me how many times did you fall in love?
And your voice is sister of your blood
It’s boiling beneath your skin
And it moves me I can’t find the words
You’re the woman mirror of me
Never forget that
There are invisible threads between us
And when you completely disappeared there, over the ocean
I felt still how it hurts, how my heart bleeds
Because the threads cannot be broken
Because the threads cannot be broken
Because the threads cannot be broken
Track Name: Song of the bitten lips
Sweet dreams my rosebud
I watch over your sleep
I watch over you
Back to the start
I grew in the shadow
It left me with a heavy heart
Bite deeply into your lips
This is a song of love
Cry what you have to cry
This is a song of love
Don’t beckon the bull
Or he will drag you in the ring
He will leave you bleeding
Don’t beckon the bull! Run! Run!
The moon is a little well
Beauty is frozen on your face
Outside some wars are raging
I can see the grey steam of animal blood
Don’t try to hide the butchery
You can’t run away from your blood
It all gets dirty when the promise is unfulfilled
Like the crest of a flame violence keeps rising
I’m a hunter and I bring the game back home
When you wake up, your face blush up like a rose
When you wake up, you free from the spell
This petrified moment
I let go a little
And start to sing
With my shame and my flesh
Track Name: It's better like that
the best secrets are kept forgotten the best places stay hidden the way youth burn we don't know yours was wasted in sorrow and it's better like that it's better like that it's better like that it's better like that the best secrets are kept forgotten the best places stay hidden the way youth burn we don't know yours was wasted, I know and it's better like that it's better like that it's better like that it's better like that You leave no traces behind, you let no clue behind you You leave no traces behind, you let no clue behind you You leave no traces behind, you let no clue behind you You leave no traces behind, you let no clue behind you
Track Name: Wind's direction
I don’t care where the road goes
I got sweet dreams to keep me warm
Friends in the stormy white land
Drinking all from magic cups
And the job won’t do me harm
I’m not a slave just a traveler
I’m not free but I’m a bird
If I don’t play the right notes
Forgive the chaos of that sound
The frail emotion I look for
Reveals the frail creature that I am
The day I woke up from my sleep
My family’s eyes did not meet mine
Blame it on the dreams we keep
To push our way to a far distant land
So I traveled overseas
Mixing with strangers
Had a nice time with nice guys
They taught me life, lesson 2
Then I followed the wind’s direction and here I am today I’m singing
In a weird crowded place where I belong for a night or two
I belong here for a night or two
I tried to set up for a while
But then I’m bored, then I quit
When memories are after you
Go as fast as you can run
We speak a strange language together
When I’m screaming you’re yelling
And when I whisper you still yell
Blame it on the dreams we keep
To push our way to a far distant land
We’ll go into the shining sea
And drink all from magic cups
I don’t care where the road goes
I got sweet dreams to keep me warm
Track Name: The Dream scene
The things you wanted so badly
You almost had them all
Left a heart of stone
Down the dusty road
The old intimate shadows of Kennedy and King
Are companions of another time
I dedicate myself to the greatness of your kingdom
I reconstruct your body every single night
The danger of temptation
Flushed a face pale as a bible
I’ve seen the eyes of the devil
And they’re so close to beauty
I take my clothes of wind
The sun hits hard on my soul
With the strength of my desire
We’ll cross the great divide
I dedicate myself to the darkness of your intentions
I reconstruct your body every single night
All our fires burn at night
We came into this world with a broken heart
And we’ll never surrender, whatever the cost may be
We’ll never surrender
All our fires burn at night
All our fires burn at night
Track Name: Angelheaded
Praise the wind blowing on the wave
Praise her words so delicate
Bless the men clutching at their dreams
Burn the clothes of last year’s man
All wrapped up in fear with a pink ribbon around it
It goes on and on / One foot in the great beyond
Coming up for air, light hitting my face, the light the light,
It has to be real, straight down the line
I search for the code hidden between the lines
I search for the womb of my disgrace
I take a walk among the living and the dead
I try to get down to the bone
I sing the words of what we could have been
Robbed of decades of majesty
I sing the wait the need and the lack
But you brought out the best in me
Adjust the world in the twinkling of an eye
Reveal the sharpness of your lines
Keep that vision, that you will never trade pretty baby
In blinding highlights and dense black shadows
What you have in your hands is a small miracle
What you have in your hands is a small miracle
What you have in your hands is a small miracle
What you have in your hands is a small miracle
