BARE EXISTENCE

You wake up in a moment, wearing
Bare existence
You're just a mirror hanging on the wall, reflecting
Bare existence

And you walk into the streets
In a crowd without a face
Just to show you are there
But you can't show your fears

You hang around devouring distance
You can't define
And maybe someday you're going to waste something
You're not a lie

You're just waiting around to die
Your lips tied with forgotten smiles
Your hopes and dreams lay down
Your hopes and dreams lay down

 

SITTING IN THE SHADES OF SUMMER

Beauty seems to depress my dreams
When love becomes too tight
Tickling pain on the windows of my eyes

Sunshine, can you keep me warm
Like the days of my youth
Years gone by and I can't turn back

Sitting in the shades of summer
Blowing weeds into the sun
Floating on the silent waters of my mind

How many roads did you leave behind
Before you'd realise
Love became a compromise

If you could see through my mind
Without knowing what has been
I probably would call you friend

Sitting in the shades of summer
Blowing weeds into the sun
Floating on the silent waters of my mind
Of my mind

Sitting in the shades of summer
Blowing weeds into the sun
Floating on the silent waters of a joke that just begun

Sitting in the shades of summer
Blowing weeds into the sun
Floating on the silent waters of my mind
Of my mind

 

PASSING THROUGH

Sometimes
When my river's laying dry
When every word seems just a lie
I'm passing through with you

Lazing on a memory
Dying for a face you love to see
I'm passing through with you

Bittersweet and solitude
Doing time without a clue
Just passing through with you

When my thoughts are getting deeper
Healing things I can't untie
I'm a bird nailed on the ceiling
With a longing just to fly
I'm passing through with you

Well we can run a thousand miles
Without getting any further
We can crawl for a smile
While they're spitting on our burden
I'm passing through with you
I'm passing through with you
I'm passing through

 

LOST IN MY DREAMS

Live’s just a leaving
A saying bye-bye
We're dragging old seasons
Out of our behinds

We're all mistreated
For natural disease
We're locking our feelings
Oh what a relieve

Lost in my dreams gazing through your eyes
It seems I'm drowning, looking for a certain sky

Our wings are aborted
By preachers and fools
Freedom's forbidden
Blood on the rules

Lost in my dreams gazing through your eyes
It seems I'm drowning, looking for a certain sky

Lost in my dreams gazing through your eyes
It seems I'm drowning, looking for a certain sky

Lost in my dreams gazing through your eyes
It seems I'm drowning, looking for a certain sky
A certain sky, yeah

 

WHATEVER...

Whatever happened to
Your clothes of sand
Life was just slipping through
A misty land

Now the sun has gone
Five leaves left undone
Idiot winds have blown
Did they make you feel so low?

Whatever happened to
Those flaming skies
How could they burn so high
Through every sigh

Now the sun has gone
Five leaves left undone
Idiot winds have blown
Did they make you feel so low?
So goddamn low

NEVER GROWING INSIDE

In rusty fields
On bended knees
She's always there
She never leaves
I can't walk out
I can't walk in
I start a war
But I never win

I know days like this never go away
I know ways like this never go astray

The faithful hours
Her hateful showers
She stands in line
And draws a sigh
I can't walk out
I can't walk in
I start a war
But I never win

I know days like this never go away
I know ways like this never go astray

Silent star
Never knowing
It's beating hard
But it's never growing inside
Never growing inside
Never growing in
Never growing inside

Now will you believe?

 

ORPHEUS FEELING

Crowded streets
Where love is bound to hide
In the whispering of a last goodbye

I've build my thoughts
On all that is gone
For tomorrow's just a haunted song

Orpheus
Is singing in my head
For the moments that I won't forget

I've seen a face
Through every mascarade
It was locked inside a house of faith

Orpheus
In wild willow trees
Pouring silence inside you and me

In empty sheets where nothing keeps you warm
Like the distance of a last goodbye
Goodbye

 

SUNNY DAY

Red old wine playing circus with my mind
Binding my time
With boring delight

Don't ask me which way we've got to go
I don't know
And I don't wanna know

You might try to live a whole life in one single day
Waiting for things to come to throw them away
Oh yeah

Be the wind blowing through my veins
Be the sun that covers the pain
Sunny day weirdness in delay
Stripping the bounds, unlock the frowns

You might try to live a whole life in one single day
Waiting for things to throw them away
Yeah

You might try to live a whole life in one single day
Waiting for things to come to throw them away

Red old wine playing circus with my mind
Binding my time
With boring delight

 

ST. VITUS DANCE REVISED

Summer's breeding a long lost feeling
A daydream old as the sea
I kiss your picture
You long lost flower
In dreams I'm waiting for you

St. Vitus dance revised
Moments lost with the tide
St. Vitus dance revised
Moments lost

Summer's breeding a long lost feeling
In dreams I'm waiting for you
Days can't make me forget
The things we have said
I'm waiting for you

Waiting for you
Waiting
