Genesis 07:20
Praying mantras on a cloud An eagle told me: "Fly with me" What a kind of flight could be! Searching heaven on a beach A blue whale told me: "Live with me" What a kind of life could be! Shooting stars We're gonna ride them till the end of time. Genesis We come from nowhere we go to everywhere And nothing is the thing to be So make a wish and you'll be everything. I talked to a frog Not a prince, just a green and tiny being I want to know God, he said with a grin. I saw her head explode Rainbowed Rays flood my face Gates are opened up for every man.

Lady Time 05:38
This morning bluebirds took me down to the valley I saw an old man in a cloudburst of tears I came closer his eyes glistened like water Holding a faded rose he mourned for his life "Here I'm sitting on a strange stone with my nose close to a square wall Hearing tunes from that magical flute At night when singing birds are blind I see grey hairs, deep wreckled eyes, WHITE HANDS!" Don't you know she is Lady Time, my friend Don't you know she wants you to be sad Graves and craddles, they must be the same It's a be, a shell, just universe.

Come to me people Meet me at the roundabout I return from Earwigs' land With lots of complaints Life is not easy there When you've got to hide away Dying by insecticide is worse than being squashed It sounds like earwigs crying Paying rent and taxes For an old and dirty carpet Little earwigs are starving Won't you stop this crime Mother worm said to her son: "We're the next ones in this war" A Little Class Earwig is something to be It sounds like earwigs crying Ooh! Good to see you again Throughout many years I've waited to hold your hand We've been come apart Voiceless by what they call end But I woke up this morning A cloud told me:"Come this way!" And it led me to a green land Where shivering trees touched the sky And the rain which wet my face It whispered:"Come this way!" And it took me to a castle With somewhat of bustle "The party of life" buzzed a fly A million of creatures I met there The kings of the same Reign Cause I love you Just join us and we'll be one Now, join us and we'll be none Just follow the easy way

Orchid felt her life was just wasted time, Royal pots are not enough for a child Dreaming of her sweet loved flower She spent her nights being his wife God Sun, Lord Tree, bring me a prince Witch flower, wild wind, make me free Thinking of a great green park She flew away near the gate Too young, too wild, too life, to die Purple flesh, the dog was there to dress you in red Fairies cry, why are you in disgrace? Orchid wasn't happy ever again, Mutilated for the rest of her days Thinking of the fastest death She cut her stem, looking sad Too young, too wild, too life, to die Mother Earth, keep her safe in your breast Take revenge, flowers pray for their day

Psychodrama 10:18
Hear, what I'm hearing It sounds like people crying Feel, what I'm feeling I'm feeling sad cause I'm lonely God it's not easy Take me to your promised land I'm so dissapointed I thought I was born in the big time Pain all around me And pain is a word I don't want to hear Christ, please you help me Take me with your highest guys Don't cry, my dear, don't cry Your mummy is here to stay I'll tell you a fairy tale Of tiny gnomes till dawn I'll never leave you alone again The pain has gone away Don't say a word sweet child of mine Good night, my dear, good night You feel like sleeping now Just dream of cotton clouds And castles near the sun Don't be afraid of anything You know you must be brave My pretty, beauty, honey pie I'm feeling sick about the darkness I'm hearing footsteps on the corner Mummy, where are you? Two shadows are trying to get me I'm watching devils on the ceiling Mummy, where are you? My teddy bear, he wants to kill me I'm feeling hands all around me Mummy, where are you? Mummy, you promised not to leave me alone You lied to me mother Oh, you hurt me so Where are you, mother? Hear, what I'm hearing It's me the one who's crying Hate and confusion They're two bloody words settled in my mind I'm so alone now Won't you share just a bit of tears? Dad, just a minute You didn't ask me to be here Mum, I can't feel you Where is your overprotective hand? God, why you left me? send my shell to a narrow place

Slippery trip of untidy rhythmic style I want to be your breath I need to find every answers at my sight I'm gonna lose my trace Running fast on ice I climbed high lands and came down the valleys Searching for Lady Time But I was not able to draw What Pandora's box let me know And I wanna try to remind
8.
The sun rises every day Knocking down the walls that make you weak Meanwhile the night is locking a door To the dreams of reality You will draw a silver bridge to the sky Thought there's a star for every rhyme Even a watch that doesn't work It shows the right time twice a day Hate and love fit together they told you And our worlds are so different so far For the pain in my soul is so deep And the choice that I want you to make Is between crime, between crime and poetry So you better tie up all your links Cause I'm just one step from your wings
9.
The eternal cycle goes on Can you hear its beating? Seasons passing by Echoes of ancient times I'll never bathe again In the same old lake I'll do nothing at all Once upon a time, in this high land Two young boys swore love forever The sun shone brighter than ever Sending greetings and blessings to them "Marry me now" said the lady You'll become part of God's knowledge But he was too proud to accept that treat So he left paradise for a while He felt anger all around him And he put a spell on the lady Nobody found a cure for her 'Cause she couldn't figh against her sweet love Suffering's gone, pain is over She got up and started to run And she found him sitting under a tree So enlighted she could hardly see He showed his perpetual change With a smile that reached to the sky And he held her tight with his hands They were one for the rest of their lives I see you in a river I see you flying up there I see you in the ocean I see you in the wilderness But it´s so hard to find you When things are going so wrong I wish some day I could change To recognize all your faces I feel you like the soft rain I breath you like fresh air I see you on a child's smile 'Cause you show a million faces I really want to hold you I really want to touch you I really want to see you 'Cause you're my guiding sunlight I feel you like sweet, soft, gentle rain I breath you like fresh wind, wind on my lips I see you on a child's smile Because you show thousands, millions, infinite faces Give me life, I want to see your eyes Give me hope, I want to see your love I'm heading for a new home Yes I´m leaving, sure I´m leaving That´s the way I feel When I look around and inside me I beg this is not a dream And if it is I won't wake up
