Track Name: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes
THE MAN WITH THE X RAY EYES

PART I

Who could have imagined that
such a scruffy and stocky guy
would have so many gifts
and extraordinary skills.

It’s believed he was anointed
in the old city of Delphi.
His proud talkative mummy thought
“No hunger anymore”.

“Oh Holy God, You chose me.
I’m one of your best bloody guys.
I will dispense your Justice.
Sorry for all the fools of the world”

The most High gave him a weird gift
just to get rid of him.
The insistence of the chosen one
gave rise to that damned gun.

It’s believed he was endowed
with a power in his eyes
His pleased pig-headed mummy claimed
“You sinners are my shame”

PART II

“Come to me, hopeless of the Earth
I am the true door of the sheep
Just get in my fence
And earn a sheep living

Don’t feel afraid my little lambs
There’s no redemption without blood
You won’t bleed to death
Just a shot for the old friends

I’m ripping my eyes out
So they can lead you to my new Jerusalem
Oh Lord, why did you forsake me? (Oh Lord, why doth thou forsake me?)

This is my offering chant
And my sacrifice for you, tiny, flying worms
You fool, with these chords you betray me”
Track Name: Some Faith
SOME FAITH

Days are running over me.

Find them like awful beasts

Awake and watching around my bed,
I'm planning how to defeat them.

I hold my breath to avoid being seen
by those fearsome fantasies.
Waiting for a new age to come,

you know, I can only fight.

My clock is ticking madly.
Its beat stabs at my soul.
Alone and going crazy,

I don't know how to go on.

At all times I want to run away
before my spirit breaks down.
There're no comforting words to say,
you know, I can only shout.

My brain is driving me mad
and shaking my mind.

Please, love me and hold me tight.
I don't want to abandon all hope.

I need your support.

Please, give me some care, my Love.

My life is fast getting grey

like an unpleasant day.

I'm so tired of this endless rain.

My eyes don't give up on crying
and my tears are so dry.

Even so I'm not satisfied.

It's a good thing
to have you with me, my honey.
I need your touch,

I need your love so much

when I feel alone.

I'm looking for

some reason to live on, my darling
I want to breathe

I need some faith from you
so my heart won't break down.
Track Name: A Cosmic Prayer
A COSMIC PRAYER

Starry skies
That spread through the nooks of my mind,
Keep inspiring me.

Blinding Sun
That smiles at the moon every night,
Light my winding path.

Wanna meet your secret soul.

Great Universe,
Let me see all your loveliness.
Share with me your grace.

Oh, Great Chaos,
I am thirsty for new routes to explore.
Take me to your world.

Endless horizons,
Where good sense gives way to audacity,
Never tire of me.

Deep bluish seas,
Caress me until I fall completely asleep.
Touch me tender.

Wanna feel one of your dreams.

Dear Mother Earth,
Please just keep me safe from all this madness.
Hug me once again.

Lavish Nature,
Tell me a fairy tale to dream of.
Wrap me in your love.

Bright falling stars,
Hope for a new beginning full of glee.
Grant me this last wish.

Holy Father,
When the end come upon all of us
Take me to your house.

Wanna be your most loved son.

Beloved friends,
Come out and wake up from your slumber.
True life is out there

My dear son,
Build with me a splendid new Troy.
Join me on this joy.
Track Name: Cyclothymia
CYCLOTHYMIA

The vastness I feel
around every bend
Seeps into the deepest void of my soul.
It's disturbing my thoughts.

Among healing words,
prescriptions and fixes.
Again in this roller-coaster, you guys!
What a hell of a ride!

Wonder to whom I belong.

I try to catch hold of your essence,
But you always drain out of my hands.
Don't be afraid, my friends, when you see me down.
I want some clue,
I just need some sign from you.
And then I'll go my way.
Will you ever answer me?
Please whisper in my ear,
Please.

I'm here all alone
While you're over there,
I see each of you looking out for yourself
from the top of my wave.

Dark nights and bright days,

Sweet dreams and nightmares,

I can find no distinction among all of them 

I ask myself: “what's my name?”

Wonder when I'll be awake.

I try to catch hold of your essence,
....

I have never been able to hear you,
to rely on you

I wanna step beside you
till the end of times

You fill my emptiness with your soundtrack
with your silence

I’ll wait for you
till fate tied our secrets up

I’m feeling numb
Each day of my gray seasons

I`m begging for you
Teach me how to feel how to feel

I´ve never dreamt this before
You appear out of the blue

I´m crazy, thinking you feel the same
But now, I’m just trying to understand

I can feel you your light
You make my world brighter

One sound is back
As if by magic

I have to be on fire
This kind of light is thin on the ground nowadays

Shhh, lights off

Please whisper in my ear
Track Name: Lady of the Winds
LADY OF THE WINDS

She's my baby born
Lady of the winds
She's coming to me
Riding a moon-shaped horse
She's so sweet, so me
Climb up high, touch the sky and fly
Lady of the winds

Running through the green
Lady of the winds
Red clouds on top
You were born to blow
She comes and goes
See how she grows
Breathing in, breathing out
Life is all around
Lady of the winds

She's my baby born
Lady of the winds
She's coming to me
Riding a moon-shaped horse
She flies to the stars up to the Sun
Shine on little love, bring joy
Flocks of bluebirds guard her bed
Tweeting Humpty Dumpty
Tickling her feet
A thousand dawns are waiting for my kid
Lady of the winds
Track Name: Footprints
FOOTPRINTS

What if I told you there’s a hidden corner
waiting for you in the shadow of your expected fate
What if I told you there’re some crucial footprints,
which branch off the course of your lifetime, guiding you to Mars.

What if I told you, sadly you'll never know
which was the right time of every single corner
If I'd known those vital meetings
I didn't know where I'd be now, what picture I'd see now...

See
Feel
Be

Who knows the perfect road
That leads you to the heaven made up just for us

Many crossroads left behind
Footprints in our hearts, bloody wounds never heal up

Here I go through the clouds that I’m meeting
not allowing me to see where I’m going
Where are the beacons, which guide me through this forest
cause I’m lost with a heavy burden on my shoulders

Sometimes I find signals written in gold letters
Should I read them and fall into despair
I know the path I should walk into
but is not what I’m feeling now, I must get into you

Who knows the perfect road
That leads you to the heaven made up just for us

Many crossroads left behind
Footprints in our hearts, bloody wounds never heal up

Many crossroads left behind
but I’m sure it’s written how
I walk into your side

Many warm nights left behind
and I missed so many chances to
taste your soul and to become one till dawn

The chips are down
I wish our fate lead us to a perfect journey

I’ll fight tooth and nail
for no one could never ever break it down

Let light shine us
Let love warm us till the end
Let our spirits feel complete
