Track Name: Start the Fireworks!
It's getting close to midnight
it's been a long
bliss of celebration
in the dark

I can feel impatience
coming strong
spreading like a riot
but then it's gone
just gone away
it's gone to seek out a better man

Dogs are in the choir
they roar, they wine and moan
raising expectations
all around

(are you) swapping sparks for wishes
when they fall?
fall like a veil
they fall and vanish in the air

They burn down desire
for the things I left behind
and for all the things I've planned
I'll take it as a chance to start again

Now, it's just past the midnight
but it's like dawn
lightened by the fire
from above

and I'm heading blackened
for my home
I am heading quiet
for my home

Cause I'm out of desire
for the boys I left behind
and for all the men that stay
I'll take it as a chance to stop.
I'm out of desire
for the places left behind
and for all the dreams of fame
I'll take it as a chance to start again.
It's a bursting desire.
Track Name: Taking pictures
I'm pushing ahead
through moments and stacks
of secrets for the trade
and prey on the one
standing so close and dividing light
with the shade

I'm deep in the crowd
where I shorten my stride
relying on delays
I take aim in advance
waiting for people to move aside,
off my way
I take aim in advance
loosing some chances and finding some
coming late

I've been stuck in a trench,
now as showers have passed
my sense is running dry
and I'm back on the hunt
ready to catch an evading sight
like a fly
yes, I'm back on the hunt
keeping the pace with the drowning sun
to make you mine
Track Name: Anything goes
I stand on your command
when we're feeling
risen to descent
anything's appealing

I've got nothing planned
the tickling teasing
will soon come to an end
take your share while leaving

anything goes
and all the outcomes are close
of all the ways it seems we chose
what we had so far, our compulsory love...

Our will is walking straight
our mood is swinging
from dull to overwhelmed
strict to forgiving

I'll give you what I can
and let my ears be bleeding
from oversized demands
rash yet so revealing

anything goes
and all the outcomes are close
of all the ways it seems we chose
what we had so far, our compulsory love...
Track Name: I'm taking over
Marked by the owner
I tease with perfect lines
my eyes are of crystal and gravel
see to the ocean
rest in the billboard shine
in a twisted fashion
made to last
a replicated, replicated sight

I'm taking over
I've waited long enough
the future is closer than ever
still it's getiing harder
to break ahead of time
but I have a brain of metal
made to last
a replicated, replicated mind

I'm taking over
Track Name: Revolutions
days go by
as we claim our future
with passionate phrases in our mouths
and vagueness in mind -
we will fight forever!

the time's right
for fictive rebellions
guiding trust
of all those who still
confide in a must

nothing could come in between
our demands, our will to see
endless faith beneath the spree
of infidelity
and every hour is
as important as the whole eternity

take a stand when it's your turn
blush when things aren't going right
if you don't know how
you will learn
in the course of time
just don't look surprised
revolutions come with duty

visions are
strictly elective
as long as we act more than we think
the question's not why -
we should fight forever

hail
to the piercing comandments
and you'll feel
the hollow appeal
of absent ideas

nothing could come in between
our demands, our will to see
endless faith beneath the spree
of infidelity
and every hour is
as important as the whole eternity

take a stand when it's your turn
blush when things aren't going right
if you don't know how
you will learn
in the course of time
just don't look surprised
revolutions come with duty
Track Name: Blow on the dice
I'm waiting for so long
to slip away now,
to overtake the new day

faded like the moon
I walk in silence, thinking
what are the odds in this game

another reason
to find something new
that couldn't do any harm
but the stakes are rolling high
my eyes are open wide

I'd like to reason with my prey
say, split the gain - half each
but there's far too many twists around here
I'd watch my temper, but it's out of my reach

luck's acting like a stranger
in a parlour
sweetly polite, but nothing more

but I called my number, roll
my mind is empty
and pockets as dry as my throat


another reason
to find something new
that couldn't do any harm
but the stakes are rolling high
my eyes are open wide

I'd like to reason with my prey
say, split the gain - half each
but there's far too many twists around here
I'd watch my temper, but it's out of my reach
Track Name: Kinematics
the world shines bright tonight
video performans on stand by
take me away
then rewind

watch, the horizon is wide
in a blink of an eye we'll pass by
landscape's only
made of light

let's get away
I need to escape

from here to now
where images interlace
let's trade surface
for interface

let's get away
disappear with flickering motion
in a freeze-frame
of emotion

let's get away
I need to escape
Track Name: Counting days
every time I find myself in your arms
the blink of love
disappears
I feel trapped
unprepared

I am counting days

I can't go through life with these silent steps
a part of me
fell apart
colorless
is friend's advice

I am counting days

I want no sighs
no compromise
I want true tears
I want true smiles

I am counting days

I know how it feels to lie out of fear
the fear of loss
in our words
we're scared
unprepared

We are counting days

every time I find myself in your arms
something gets
on my mind
I can't rest
by your side

I am counting hours

I want no sighs
no compromise
I want true tears
I want true smiles

I want to strike
cause it's my fight
I want true tears
I want true smiles
I wanna feel alive
as long as I stand
I wanna chase my days and feel all of them
as long as I am
counting days
Track Name: Stereotypes
without a guide
we've climbed through the mines
slow down your step
the slope's ahead and it's dawn
we said we'll stay here for a while

the bet is on
the pride has shaped our goal
still we rush
is it the alpine view?
too wide
might crash down
the distance

I breathe so loud down there
down there on the ground
playing with my stereotypes
I breathe so loud down there
down there by your side
playing with divided minds
Track Name: Lovers' anatomy
Let's play
I have tricks to bare it
roundup your lies
there are rules we have to break
and make a little miracle by staying
the unbelievers

the brave race
trying on Hamlet's costume
I cry, defy
and I dare to loose my game
counting on your courtesy in triumph
I tame desire

all the strain to stay awake
I find your heart's repeating loud
all the strain to stay awake
I'm down
disarmed
your lips reveal my mouth
Track Name: Overboard
We have to move fast
like a rumour
we are prepared to take the crash
please, remain calm
wired to your seats
there's no need to be alarmed
we're in light times
they could never bring us down

I'll cast my cases
off my shoulders
when we'll be running out of breath
I'll have to give up
sweet doubt
gold I treasure in my mouth
we're in light times
they will never take us down
with beautiful shapes, made of salt
...
I can't save my mind from sinking in soft calls
got nothing left to throw overboard
