Have to hide under a stone the word forever
Unexpected sudden change of the meaning of together
Even it’s clear the habit worm was there, growing silent since long
My skin is falling now and my bones are crumbling, the soul fed by some insane behaviours
A loop of stoned wakes, rides and trains, unknown faces and passive talking
Empty excitement letting the look wandering for any girl’s eyes
l’m slipping opportunities over time like a fool
Feeling loneliness with the c*ck in my left hand and hours of music that I have still to write
Since the beginning I was a leach, so what do you expect from me?
A heavy selfish cancer in the end, so what do you expect from me?
And please stop with all these guilts, just say “you don’t exist”
Your “I’ll be here for you” will need to me when I will never need you
Every day I hope to erase you as you were never be mine
Track Name: 11 Dreams
Through and around the bends, here is lying some precious time and a vicious failure
Coloured thoughts and other frozen lies; a lack of flavour
There's no much, honey, just a breath of cigarettes burned and lack of heart
Hanging around for a sad meeting, underground
You got eleven dreams at least and no one will run
You got eleven dreams and you’ll on lonely ride
Yes it is
Covered through a silk blanket there's a uncoloured love that I wish it will fail
There's no much money, just to burn cigarettes and soul's sparks with no hope
You got eleven dreams and you're on lonely ride yet
Just one of all these dreams will show you how to die
Yes it is
And forever and ever it will be and I was
Track Name: Save Hide Save
Beyond this ton of knowledges you show to have someone has never explained to you respect?
Are you trying to fill your soul with my ten years’ bread?
What are you looking to achieve?
Just save yourself tonight
You have to hide yourself tonight
Save yourself tonight
I have no excuses, no other views of facts
I knew i’d lost a friend and maybe more than one
You have any right to hate me, I cannot convince you otherwise
You’ll never see me again
I’ll try to save myself tonight
Hide myself tonight
Save myself tonight
When you lost some you hope hard it come back
But it will never come back and
You can’t save yourself at night
Track Name: Nothing
I’m just sad and tired
Burning my cigarette,
Wasting my time,
Picking up my pen
And feeling tired
Track Name: Rust
Why I shouldn't go on a moonlight road to nowhere
Why I shouldn't drive around until my friends will all be gone
Why I shouldn't ramble on, selling lies with a bunch of songs
Why I shouldn't think more when the sunlight is coming down
But I would drown you, forget our past and cover all our sins
There's still some hope to hold this bad ending?
Just let the curtain falls!
Why I shouldn't go on?
Some people say “I was rust and I’ll eat dust”
It's just like a dream I had: you're around me but night will not last
I would drown her but some said “hate stirs up conflict and love covers all sins”
Have we still some hope to hold this sad ending?
Just let the curtain falls!
Why I shouldn't go on?
Track Name: Cypress Tree
Painted by the color of your skin
Laugh to me, the moon
Behind the tip of a cypress tree
Oh great sun of the night!
Now you set behind a cornice
Track Name: 9 Years
Someday I’ll meet you in a timeless place
and if you say “come with me” I think I will
But we will hardly see our faces
An unpleasant bitterness will slip out from our lips to our fingertips
And we will turn back and run again
So we’ll be able to go with the river’s flow and lose ourselves
Track Name: Her King
The kingdom of this Queen is her King
and she has no other duty or desire to serve him,
love him and please him to fainting
The “Body” of this King:
Boundless land to govern, to possess, to cure, to feed;
Love bed, meal, ocean of time,
A million of stars and planets.
Hands on Me.
